The New Rules of Aging Well: A Simple Program for Immune Resilience, Strength, and Vitality (Hardcover)
“Essential reading for COVID times. . . . The tool we all need right now: a smart, straightforward guide that speaks directly to the question: How can I build a strong immune system? The book is packed with clear, actionable advice for building a strong immune system, losing weight, feeling younger and aging beautifully.”
How you age is up to you. And it’s easy to take charge.
From the renowned integrative doctor Frank Lipman comes a radically simple program to reverse the symptoms we reflexively call “normal aging,” including feeling achy, stiff, sluggish, weak, and vulnerable to chronic illness. This improves not only our life span but, more importantly, our health span—our quality of life and how we feel.
Built on a series of lifestyle changes that energize the body and build and strengthen its immune system, The New Rules of Aging Well is based on ancient wisdom backed up by science: Eat less and practice intermittent fasting. Do 20 minutes a day of something meditative. Switch to gentler workouts, but move as much as possible. Unlock the incredible power of mushrooms. Grow your tribe. Walk barefoot when you can.
The result: a rejuvenated you that looks great and feels healthy, happy, sexy, agile, and strong.

“Immune competence and responsiveness, collectively referred to as immune resilience, has emerged as one of the most fundamental metrics defining a healthy human. And while immune resilience generally declines with age, it is now clear that our lifestyle choices profoundly influence this decline, even to the extent of rejuvenating the competency of immune function. In Dr. Lipman’s The New Rules of Aging Well, you will gain the tools to realize this goal, while you regain strength and vitality as well. This is profound information, validated by our most up-to-date research, that will undoubtedly pave the way for your health and longevity.”
