A Woman’s Guide to Healthy Aging-7 Proven Ways to Keep you Vibrant, Healthy & Strong is launched!!

I am pleased to announce publication of my book,
A Woman’s Guide to Healthy Aging – Seven essential ways to keep you vital, happy and strong.
Available on Amazon.ca on line or at Indigo http://bit.ly/2u4DOsJ

My book deals with issues that are specific to women as they grow older.  A women’s brain for instance, differs from the male one, with important implications for female brain health; heart disease is a different experience for women than it is for men.
I also sweep aside the myths and sales tricks that populate the Internet, and offer sensible advice, based on the latest scientific evidence, on controversial topics from hormone therapy to sensitive issues like sexual health and covers the seven most important areas for healthy aging in women; nutrition, exercise and sleep, brain health, immunizations and disease prevention, menopause, cardiac health, and osteoporosis.A portion of the book sales will be donated to the Women’s Brain Health Initiative.

A portion of the book sales will be donated to the Women’s Brain Health Initiative.

    1. Thanks for your feedback. Glad you and your spouse read my blog and find them to be what you are looking for. I do not however, offer guest writers
      an opportunity to write for my blog. As you may appreciate, the material and commentary I provide, is based on my background as a family physician and
      my involvement with many medical groups and associations.
