The business of anti-aging has become a booming global industry, estimated by the Global Spa Summit to be worth $679.1 billion worldwide in 2010. The immense growth of the beauty and anti-aging business has seen an unprecedented spike in the number of “quick fix” anti-aging treatments that many times have proven to be not just expensive, but quite risky. Renowned experts Herbert Benson, director emeritus of the Benson-Henry Institute; T. Colin Campbell, author of “The China Study”; and best-selling author Dr. Andrew Weil lament that too many people are provided “quick fixes” when the best solutions for youth, longevity, beauty and vitality are found in a person’s lifestyle. Dr. Holt, professor of Medicine, maintains that: “Beauty lies within the body; the physical appearance is merely a function of general body health. Longevity is a legacy of a positive lifestyle, and such a lifestyle results in youthful looks.”
“Turn Back Time: Natural Anti-Aging Choices,” by Catherine Brillantes-Turvill, presents a holistic approach to anti-aging founded on the core principles of wellness and natural healing. Using the acronym “CHOICES” as an easy to remember guide to its Body-Mind-Spirit approach to natural anti-aging, the author cites 11 pillars of health as: C—Choose to be Positive, Control Stress; H—Health Eating and Hydration; O—Oxygenate with Exercise, Movement; I—Immune Boost with Natural Supplements; C—Cleanse body, mind, emotions and environment, E—Embrace natural therapies; and S—Sleep, Social and Spiritual Support.
A wellness advocate who has seen the power of natural healing in her own destination-spa business, Brillantes-Turvill presents CHOICES as a formula for busy people to use as they undertake their own journey to look and feel younger. Research-based and scientific in content, yet easy to read in a simple, personal, conversational style, this handy guide is perfect for today’s modern man and woman on a quest to look and feel younger and ends up with a clear bonus: a vibrant, healthy, happy and joyful life.
