Professional Reviews

If You Buy One Aging Book, This is the One.
What is exemplary about Healthy Holistic Aging is that the book not only provides an easy to follow blueprint for health and holistic aging, but the author is an exceptional role model for his program. Can you live a healthy and independent life to the age of 100? Can you enjoy positive relationships? Can you maintain a healthy environment? Carl Helvie says you can and at age 74, he's a perfect example of the right things to do. He has no chronic illnesses and is among the 11% of the age 65-and-overs who take no prescribed medications. As a professor emeritus and a doctor of public health, he knows whereof he speaks and cites overwhelming scientific evidence that good diet, exercise, adequate sleep, prayer, meditation, positive relationship with others and a clean and safe environment can ensure successful aging.

Healthy Lifestyle Guide
Carl Helvie's Healthy Holistic Aging offers a thoughtful and insightful guide for any of us who want to be healthy throughout our lifetimes and to prolong the time of our lives that is disease free.

His book provides an approach that is very holistic and that embraces our physical, mental and spiritual aspects as well as our interactions with each other and our environment. The reader is offered many ways to evaluate her/his health in each of these areas as well as a number of checklists and questionnaires that help the reader make self assessments and find practical solutions to health-related issues. Many examples of positive physical, mental and spiritual health behaviors are presented.

The book is soundly based on scientific research, but includes an overarching wisdom drawn from Helvie's considerable experience as a nurse, nursing educator and public health practitioner. I particularly enjoyed the chapters on positive mental and spiritual health behaviors and the many passages relating to health and relationships and also to health and our environment. I liked Helvie's stress on the importance of intervention and advocacy in matters of the environment and health.

I think this is a good book to use to make a solid self-assessment as to one's health from a holitstic perspective, with lots of good information and ideas for contending with health concerns in contemporary society. I recommend it to [...] buyers.

Healthy Living Style
Carl Helvie's book, Healthy Holistic Aging, strikes a chord with many of his wise and economical suggestions for living to a drug-free old age. His list of herbs and their uses was especialy helpful. The book is written using his own experiences with the western medical regime (he has earned a doctorate in Public Health Nursing) versus his healing with alternative, gentler methods during his bout with lung cancer. His book also addresses the importance of healthy relationships to prolonging life--a topic that isn't readily addressed in other discussions of old age. Each topic is discussed candidly and clearly, from protecting one's environment to becoming a legislative activist; from surrounding oneself with beauty to eating and exercising wisely and well. Many studies are cited if the reader would like to explore furthur. I highly recommend this book as a general reference as well as for casual reading.
