This follow-up book to the 250,000-copy best-seller The Schwarzbein Principle shows people how to stop accelerated aging.
In her very successful book, The Schwarzbein Principle, renowned endocrinologist Diana Schwarzbein introduced her scientifically proven conclusion that degenerative diseases are not genetic, but acquired.
Many studies have supported this, proving that life expectancy is 75 to 90 percent due to habits and only 10 to 25 percent due to genetics. This means that someone who is genetically destined to die at age 100 may not live past age 60 because of poor habits and lifestyle choices that cause accelerated aging and premature death. Conversely, a person can live to 100 and be functionally healthy.
In this highly anticipated follow-up, Diana Schwarzbein, M.D., goes beyond the diet she introduced in her first book-which literally helped thousands of people lose weight-and offers a personalized anti-aging program for readers to heal their metabolisms and stop advanced aging in its tracks.
Weaving in groundbreaking research and provocative case studies-including her own regeneration and that of her clients-she will lead you through a series of eye-opening questionnaires, which identify where you are on your path to either accelerated or healthy aging.
Based your answers, she leads you to the “how-to” sections, which explain, in easy-to-follow and personalized detail, the steps you need to take to restore healthy functioning. For each unique situation, she covers five areas: Nutrition, Hormone Replacement Therapy (if needed), Tapering Off Toxic Chemicals or Avoiding Them Completely, Cross-Training Exercises and Stress Management.
The Schwarzbein Principle II is sure to follow the success of the first book and will help people live a more healthful lifestyle by embracing a regeneration process to prevent and reverse accelerated aging.
5 Stars Wonderful book with non-mainstream advice that works
I have spent countless hours in the last two years researching and researching non mainstream nutrition and have become immensely more healthy because of it. This book takes most of all the good Ive found and has it in an easy to read format that non scientifically minded people will easily understand. It gives great advice on how to become healthy like we are supposed to be, with no drugs, stimulants (like coffee), and without needing to exercise to death like those poor fools on The Biggest Loser (almost all of which gain the weight back that they lost on the show very quickly. This book explains why that occurs).
If you want to become healthy without doing cardio twenty five hours a week and without limiting carbs or protein or fats (which ARE good, despite the mainstream health advice which has obviously failed us. Just look at the people around you. Disgusting most of the time), if you want to stop having acid reflux or pains throughout your body or you want to get pregnant when its been next to impossible to get so, if you want to stop having brain fog and fatigue, then this is the best book I can recommend (Ive read tons of books, “scientific” studies, blogs, forums, on everything from low fat to low carb to zero carb to high carb to high fat and many more). It will explain everything, give testimonies and stories, and a very good eating plan. BUY THIS BOOK. You can get it used for like $5.

5 Stars This is Worthy Reading
The subject material (the effects of hormones on body metabolism and the health implications of metabolic imbalances) is complicated but the author writes in a very definitive and lucid manner that makes it ‘average reader ready’. There are three books in the series and I bought them all but have read only this one. If this one is representative of the others then it was money was well spent.
The book is presented with many subheadings and adequate white space so the reader isn’t faced with endless unbroken narrative.
Tremendous insights into health and well being – how to get there and stay there. If you are sick – read it. If you are well – read it so you stay that way.
5 Stars Valuable book for over-exercisers
The most valuable point Dr. Swarzbein makes is that you don’t have to exercise so much and you don’t have to be skinny to be healthy. She explains quite clearly the fallacy of this widespread notion in today’s society. While certainly being overweight is a health concern, she addresses the opposite problem of over-exercising and under-eating and the ultimate results in poor health. I was an under-eating, vegetarian for most of my life and constantly over-exercised, thinking I was living a healthy lifestyle. I started swimming four hours a day in college and actually increased my exercise as I took up triathlons and taught Phys. Ed. Eventually I burned out.
This book made sense to me. It got through to me. She explained how hormones are formed from cholesterol and how important it is to eat foods containing cholesterol. Now I am eating lean ground beef, sausage, chicken, lots of shrimp, butter, yogurt, and trying to eat balanced meals. I have changed my mind-set and am gaining weight. I am beginning to feel better.
The one thing that I do think she is missing the boat on is her failure to address the need for pharmaceutical intervention in the case of totally failed adrenals, such as mine. Just as she overcame traditional medical beliefs about diet, she needs to rethink her stance on adrenal exhaustion and open her mind. I would not be recovering without the addition of Cortef. Read Jefferies, “Safe Uses of Cortisol” for details. I know Suzanne Somers disagrees with her on this point also.
