Summary, etc.:
The American doctor and his wife describe their visit to the small Chinese village of Bapan where they learned the healthy traditions and practices of the locals that help them achieve long, active lives.
"A renowned Johns Hopkins- and Stanford-educated cardiologist travels from America to a remote Chinese village where he learns seven lessons that change his life and his medical practice. At forty-four, acclaimed cardiologist John D. Day was overweight and suffering from insomnia, degenerative joint disease, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. On six medications and still enduring constant aches, he needed to make a change. While lecturing in China, he heard about a remote mountainous area known as Longevity Village, a wellness Shangri-la free of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, dementia, depression, and insomnia, where living past one hundred--in good health--is not uncommon. In the hope of understanding this incredible phenomenon, Dr. Day, a Mandarin speaker, decided to spend some time in Longevity Village. He learned everything he could about this place and its people, and met its centenarians. His research revealed seven principles that work in tandem to create health, happiness, and longevity--rules he applied to his own life. Six months later, he'd lost thirty pounds, dropped one hundred points off his cholesterol and twenty-five points off his blood pressure, and was even cured of his acid reflux and insomnia. In 2014, he began a series of four-month-long support groups with patients who agreed to apply the lessons of Longevity Village to their lives. Ninety-two percent of the participants were able to adhere to their plans and stay on target to reach their health goals. Now Dr. Day shares his story and his proven program to help you feel sharper, more motivated, more productive, and pain-free. The Longevity Plan is not only a fascinating travelogue but also a practical, accessible, and inspiring guide to living a better life."--Jacket.
