“Undergoing treatments with Dr. Mao at the Tao of Wellness and following his nutritional advice has led to a marked change in my physical vitality and my general state of well-being.” — Jim Carrey

“Dr. Mao brings generations of experience, an abundance of knowledge about both Eastern and Western Medicine, and his own good heart to his remarkable work.” — Helen Hunt

Looking and feeling young for decades is not just the province of the wealthy and surgically enhanced. Living to be 100 is simpler than most people imagine. In Secrets of Longevity, Dr. Maoshing Ni shares the secrets gleaned from 38-generations of medical knowledge in his family, and a 20-year study of centenarians in China. A longer, healthier and happier life is not a result of a complicated supplement regimen, arcane dietary restrictions or any particular exercise, rather it is a combination of simple approaches to all areas of life. Dr Mao (as he is known by his patients) shares the main areas in which small changes can have a big impact on longevity and general health. The book is broken out into five main areas:

  • What You Eat: Diet and Nutrition
  • How You Heal: Herbs, Remedies and Elixirs
  • Where You Are: Environment, Ecology and Community
  • What you Do: Exercise, Lifestyle and Rejuvenation
  • Who You Are: Genetics, Relationships, Love, Sexuality and Faith

Each includes a host of easy tips to boost energy and keep readers looking and feeling young and vital well into their tenth decade. Finally, Dr. Mao brings it all together by examining what it means to have a fulfilling life. Marrying wisdom from the East with the latest scientific advances from the West, Secrets of Longevity puts at your fingertips an invaluable resource for making your stay on earth longer, healthier, and much, much happier.

Dr. Mao (as he is known by his patients and students) is a 38th generation doctor of Chinese medicine and an authority in the field of Taoist anti-aging medicine. After receiving two doctorate degrees and completing his Ph.D. dissertation on Nutrition, Dr. Mao did his postgraduate work at Shanghai Medical University’s affiliated hospitals and began his 20-year study of centarians of China. Dr. Mao returned to Los Angeles in 1985 and has since focused on Taoist anti-aging therapeutics at his Tao of Wellness Center.

Secrets of Longevity: Revealed! Living to be 100 is not the product of an expensive supplement, brutal daily regimen, plastic surgery or anything out of the average person's reach. A few simple changes in the most basic areas of our lives: diet, environment, activity and relationships, can help us reap great rewards.

Bulk Up Bones with Orange Juice Bone loss, a slow, inevitable part of the aging process, can lead to life-threatening bone fractures if it becomes excessive or progresses too rapidly. Calcium and vitamin D are both crucial to bone health. Traditionally, cow's milk has been touted as the ideal food for strong bones, but many people react adversely to lactose. Now studies show that your body is capable of absorbing vitamin D and calcium from orange juice as readily as it does from milk. Besides being good for your bones, orange juice is also full of vitamin C, a potent antioxidant.
