About Younger for Longer

Targeted at the general reader, Younger for Longer reveals practical steps to slow the ageing process and stay healthy

"Revelatory and accessible" - Sunday Post

Younger for Longer shares the author's detailed knowledge of hormones, toxins, nutrition, stress and other factors to provide a comprehensive, up-to-date and medically rigorous description of health, ageing and the human body.

Written in an engaging, easy-to-read style, Dr Carmichael's book covers inflammation and obesity, nutrition, toxins, hormones, stress, women's health, men's health, the skin and the brain - and shows readers how to slow or even undo the ageing process. Authoritative and wide-ranging, Younger for Longer is a unique book packed with actionable advice.

Research carried out since the book was published in the United Kingdom and South Africa in late 2018 shows that the messages central to Younger for Longer – particularly those about nutrition, the immune system, hormones and countering inflammation – are key to reducing COVID-19's risk factors.

'Truly holistic'

"Many books have been published about using diet and lifestyle measures to improve health. Most have focused on food and exercise. Dr Carmichael goes much further with a truly holistic approach to health and particular focus on the role of hormones in optimal well-being. This book covers everything from activity to zest, with sleep, stress and more in-between. It's highly readable, well referenced and well explained. I highly recommend it."

Zoë Harcombe, nutrition researcher and author

'One of the best'

"Offers valuable, honest and solid medical insights into how you can age better. It is,
without doubt, one of the best books I have read in my many years as a health activist."

Longevity magazine

'Highly accessible'

"[Dr Carmichael] has achieved the rare feat of presenting a massive body of work in a highly accessible format, that will appeal to both lay persons and medical professionals. It is a simple matter to recommend this book most highly. It is as good a book on this topic as any I have seen. It is a ruthlessly objective scientific analysis of what is known about the steps we can and must take to sustain our health and so to stay younger for longer. And those steps do not, Carmichael concludes, lie in the future with the next great medical discovery that is just around the corner. They exist already – within ourselves."

Emeritus Professor Timothy Noakes
