Live Well, Live Long

New or Used: 3 copies from $22.00
We all suffer some illness...and eventually die - that's part of life. What we don't want is to die prematurely or suffer unnecessarily. This book identifies the preventable illnesses that are the most common causes of premature death and disability, and offers advice on how to minimize the risk of contracting them. Most illnesses evolve over many years and prevention must be a never-ending process. Here is a life-long programme for illness prevention for men and women, covering all significant disease categories, including physical illness, mental health and social issues. Many adult diseases have their foundation in childhood, such as heart disease and diabetes, and mental disorders such as anxiety and depression. These diseases should be addressed in childhood, and practices are outlined that parents need to follow to help their children become healthy adults. Paul Goyen, himself a general practitioner, also outlines the best approach to a long-term relationship with your family doctor, and the book provides numerous sources of information on specific health issues.

About the Author

Paul Goyen has been working as a general practitioner since 1983 with a principal interest in preventative medicine. He lives with his wife and daughters in Sydney.


"Dr. Goyen notes that one of life's mysteries is that routine car maintenance is considered essential but routine body maintenance is not. Live Well, Live Long does an excellent job in redressing this paradox." --Dr. Geoffrey Toffler, professor of preventative cardiology, Royal North Shore Hospital, Sydney, Australia
