good condition paperback
" Aging is much more of a choice than people ever dream. One of modern medicine's great breakthroughs is a realization that the body is not an object, but a process with no preordained limits ".
A world-class pioneer in mind/body medicine, and an acclaimed exponent of the significance of the ancient Hindu teachings on Ayurveda, which parallel the insights of contemporary research on quantum physics in stating that our attitude to ourselves can change the way things are, Deepak Chopra here shows us the extent to which the reshaping of the aging process is within our control.
In a book which combines lucid theory with inspiring case studies - one of Dr Chopra's eighty year old patients has remarked : ' People don't grow old. When they stop growing, they become old ' - and with a wealth of practical exercises through which to translate theory into practice, this book demonstrates clearly and convincingly the innate intelligence of the mind/body processes and and the extent to which sickness and aging are created by by nothing more than than gaps in our self - knowledge.
By increasing this self - knowledge, we can master simple yet effective ways to metabolize time, and so achieve our unbounded potential.
