Recent advances in modern medicine have contributed to a longer lifespan for human beings. However, this does not directly translate to healthy living. Modern medicine's major success lies in specifically targeting orientated pathologies. It, however, does not promise healthy longevity. Healthy longevity requires an absence of life-threatening diseases and maintenance of good quality of life. Oriental medicine emphasizes on the promotion of physiological balance and internal harmony, which are integral for longevity in life. This book defines aging, approaching from the perspective of the frontier bioscientist as well as that of the traditional practitioner. On the international front, Oriental practices are extensively recommended, including herbal supplements and specific training exercises. This book, compiled with the aim of offering solutions to healthy aging, provides an excellent reference for both the elderly and their carers.

Adaptogens help the body to “adapt” to the many health challenges it encounters--particularly stress. They increase stamina and counter the effects of aging and thus are becoming important tools in sports medicine and in the prevention and treatment of chronic fatigue and related disorders. The authors explain how they work and why they are so effective at combating stress-induced illness.
