The Secret of Life, a memoir of getting younger
“A little is a lot” is the message the author wants his readers to receive, so each and every one .
From a diagnosis of advanced stage cancer, to competing in a triathlon at the age of 68
Dr. Gilkis’ unique memoir and life-changing message is: physical activity is for everyone at any age and it can improve the quality of life as well as physical and mental health, dramatically. This message comes from Gilkis’ deep personal understanding due to his own choices, which he suggests everyone implement!
In this book, Dr. Gilkis dismantles the myth that sporting activities are only for the young and strong, or that it has to be an unpleasant and difficult task. It shows how sporting activities can be almost effortless while being a source of joy and satisfaction. “A little is a lot” is the message the author wants his readers to receive, so each and every one – at any age and physical state, can be encouraged to start!
One of the key messages of this book is the relation between sport activities and the robustness of our immune system. Very relevant in these corona days.
Includes a chapter describing clearly the immune system and all the factors influencing it.
