Book Review: Prime-Time Health by Dr. William Sears

Prime-Time Health, A Scientifically Proven Plan for Feeling Young and Living Longer by William Sears, MD with Martha Sears, RN has an 8-week healthy-aging program that will help prevent disease, sharpen thinking, boost energy and take charge of your health. According to Dr. Sears, the answer to the health care crisis is “self-care.” It is directed to “prime-timers” (those in their 40-50’s), but provides information for the young and old as well. By following his plan, you can cut your risks of cancer and the “highs”—high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high blood and sugar. In the end, he puts together an 8-week prime-time health plan.

Sound too good to be true? That is what I thought till I had the book in my hands. I was curious just what the doctor was going to tell me. Surprisingly, he said a lot of things that I have read here and there or heard from my nutritionist over the past few years, and then some. He draws his information from clinical research that has been done over the years.

He describes how the body changes over time and how to prevent disease and help each body system. He discuses various foods that can help your body to function as it should and the need for exercise to stay lean and healthy. He tells you about the 16 “superfoods” you should have in your diet.

This book is now my absolute favorite health book. I say it is my health “bible.” Every thing you need to know about getting or staying healthy is in this book. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to stay young as they get old.

This book retails for $25.99 but you can get it right now from for $17.15 with free shipping with $25 purchase.
