Having a number of health issues, I’ve read many books on alternative strategies, juicing, eating to live healthy, and so on. Ageing Well: A Guide to Rejuvenation and Longevity fits right there among them, and brings to light some tools and techniques that I was unaware of. I found some of the sections in the book informative and helpful while others were a bit much for the average person and more suitable for the hardcore health enthusiast.

Through personal chiropractic experience after an accident, he had at 18-years-old, and being in practice himself for over 25 years, Dr. Cromack added the elements of health care that he feels will improve an individual’s well-being. This, according to the doctor, if practiced faithfully, will lead to rejuvenation and longevity. He acknowledges himself that the sections of the book are placed a little randomly, but the contents are divided into over 60 headings, which make it easy to find a particular item.

Ageing Well begins with back care, including chiropractic care for the back. He explains, “Your spine is how life travels through your body; from your brain down the spinal cord, via the spinal nerve trunks, to every cell, tissue, and organ of your body.” He goes on to enlighten the reader to the importance of finding a qualified chiropractor and validates our fear of having our necks manually adjusted if the doctor is not qualified.

From there Dr. Cromack discusses diet, “A diet should be high enzyme, high fiber, highly mineralized, anti-oxidant rich, nutrient dense, low to medium glycemic, fresh and organic, alkaline based, easy to digest, and rich in long chain omega 3 fatty acids.” He goes into great detail providing information on juicing, super-foods and supplements. He even offers recipes for smoothies and meals, but you will need a health food store for some of the ingredients.

Other topics Ageing Well touches on are air and water purification; stretches for reducing stress, rehabilitation and helping with scoliosis; breathing exercises; and strength training. It contains a number of illustrations demonstrating the proper positions. It also discusses mediation; acupuncture; insomnia; depression; fasting; detox cleanses; sun gazing; and others. I found most of these sections informative and having practical application. This is what a reader should want from any self-help, or health book.

Overall, I found Ageing Well worth reading and with only 134 pages, it was an easy read. Dr. Cromack seems well versed in alternative medicine and provides some useful information. I will keep this book in my bookcase along with the other books on improving health, ready for reference when needed. While I do recommend this book, I think the potential reader should be aware that some of the content is not intended for the average person, such as using home inversion slings and traction, fasting, and cleanses. It’s important to remember to consult with your own doctor when thinking of following the advice in self-help and health books.

Dr. George Cromack draws from his background as a chiropractor, acupuncturist, nutritionist, live food advocate, yoga instructor, and in exercise physiology to bring you this book of practical tips for radiant health.
