Movie Reviews

Aging Gracefully
Rebecca Johnson | Washington State | 08/26/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Dr. Andrew Weil presents the topic of healthy aging in a beautiful garden setting that looks like a Garden of Eden. The topic of aging has almost become like a tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Should you taste of the fruit of youth from medical knowledge and put yourself in opposition to nature or taste of the fruits of maturity as they present themselves in all their positive aspects.

Lifestyle changes to increase the depression of morbidity are promoted, but taking hormones is not something Dr. Weil seems to be interested in because he encourages a more natural pathway. Instead of rejecting the aging process, he embraces the wisdom and positive aspects of growing older.

How can fruit pigments help you stay younger?
What should you do to get the best night's sleep?
Should exercise be adapted for your current age?
Why should we focus on an anti-inflammatory diet?
What is an anti-inflammatory diet?

Dr. Andrew Weil's trips overseas have given him insight into how many cultures live and how they treat the aging population. He gives a list of foods you can incorporate into your diet to make you healthier and to live a long, happy life. At the end of this PBS special, there is a summary of all the things you can do to contribute to your own mental, emotional and physical health. The extras include a short biography, ideas for creating a walking labyrinth, the 4-7-8 breathing technique, more information on an ethical will and additional questions from the audience.

Dr. Andrew Weil's wisdom has helped me on all levels and his medical advice is practical and healing. When you really get down to the basics of what you need to feel better in life, Dr. Weil has the answers. His breathing exercises and tips on how to get a better night's sleep are priceless.
