THE ANTI-AGEING HANDBOOK (article first published : 2004-09-29)

Aging is a process that begins in early adulthood, and accelerates into the 50’s. However, it is a state of mind and body, and one of the most common causes of premature ageing is stress. The aging process can be slowed down dramatically by learning to relax and also taking heed of poor eating habits, lack of exercise, incorrect breathing, dehydration, pollution, toxins and radiation.

The Anti-Ageing Handbook, recently released by South Africa’s doyenne of wellness, Dr Geraldine Mitton, explains that the mind-body connection, attitude, and daily habits have a tremendous impact on people’s state of health. “Health isn’t just about “not being sick” – it’s about enjoying life, and continuing to enjoy health for as long as we live, no matter how old we are.”

The book, which will be launched at the Beverly Hills Hotel, incorporates scientific medical information and a comprehensive mind-body-spirit approach, arming the reader with necessary tools and insight to age youthfully.

“We are living longer, and as a result there is a global trend towards self care wellness and improved physical appearance,” says Dr Mitton. “More and more people are making use of natural therapies, together with lifestyle changes.”

Dr Mitton is the medical director of the Santé Wellness Group and is a pioneer in integrated medicine and Wellness. She has carried out studies in nutritional medicine, stress management, spa therapies, anti-ageing medicine and traditional Chinese medicine.

The talk will take place at the Beverly Hills Hotel’s signature restaurant, The Sugar Club, on October 6 from 12h00. Tickets R150 include a three-course luncheon.

Booking is essential through Paula on 031 561 2211. Further information from Lorna Gourlay at Platinum Marketing on 082 443 8100 or email: lorna@platinumcc.co.za
