WAKE UP YOUR BODY! by Guy & Lawrence G. Blochman Remsen


Email this review


The hallelujah Hygeia of the title and the limiting aspects of the subtitle aside, this is really a very sound book on practically all aspects of keeping yourself in (good) shape. Mr. Remsen has been associated with both a hospital and health clubs and Mr. Blochman, as to be expected, keeps the prose trim. The therapeutic values of bathing (whether in oatmeal, sulphur, paraffin or pretty bubbles); of the sauna; of hot and cold temperatures whether for sinusitis or arthritis; of massage as both a stimulant (sex) or relaxant; of exercise in general and for particular parts of your sagging structure; and on the upkeep of your skin, teeth, hair, feet, etc. rely on sound knowns (cf. baldness) and advance no false hopes.... But it takes time to defeat time.
