The Drinkers Guide To Healthy Living represents the culmination of 15 years of observation, analysis, study and experimentation dealing with the following question: Is it possible for individuals to be supremely healthy even though they consume significant amounts of alcohol on a daily basis? This is not a simple question, given the multiplicity of issues to be considered. For example, is any amount of alcohol consumed on a daily basis “too much?” Is there such a thing as healthy “moderate” drinking and, if so, what are the definitional parameters? What about differences in gender? For example, are women more susceptible than men to the detriments of alcohol at any level of consumption? What about differences in race and ethnicity? For example, are Asians more prone to negative health ramifications as a result of imbibing any type of alcohol? Does genetics play a role, that is, are certain otherwise healthy people at greater risk for alcohol-related health problems due to their genetic codes?

In considering these fundamental questions, myriad other issues come into play, such as whether or not physical exercise routines play a significant role in healthy living for drinkers. Also, to what extent does stress impact drinkers? Many people get by on less sleep than they should, but does this really result in additional negative consequences for drinkers? Does consuming any level of alcohol add to the load of environmental toxins by which all of us is impacted every day? Is the combined impact of all these factors further impacted by age?

The Drinkers Guide To Healthy Living addresses all these subject areas and provides access to substantial additional information for any reader interested in a particular subject area. The book also focuses on the critically important role of diet and nutrition, and it spends significant time analyzing the degree to which daily supplementation of various vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids and fatty acids aids a person in being as healthy as possible, consistent with drinking alcoholic beverages.

The author is a firm believer in the principle that each individual must take control of her or his life. As a drinker of alcoholic beverages for many years, the author has personally tested his theory that lifestyle modifications can influence one’s health, no matter whether a person is a moderate or immoderate drinker. The final chapter of the book lays out the author’s personal health regimen, as well as his most recent medical results.

This book is a must read for anyone interested in achieving optimal health benefits while continuing to drink alcoholic beverages.
