From the author of the New York Times runaway bestseller The
Wrinkle Cure comes a groundbreaking, scientifically based, easy-to-follow
total-body anti-aging program--a revolutionary plan of action that empowers you to firm
your face, tone your figure, and improve your overall health and appearance.
Most people believe that sags, bags, and wrinkles --
on the face and body -- are inevitable. many people choose to temporarily
circumvent these signs of aging with surgery, chemical peels, Botox injections, or laser
treatments. The good news, according to research scientist and practicing dermatologist
Nicholas Pericone, M.D., is that by following a simple program of diet, exercise, and skin
care you can prevent and even reverse many signs of aging.
Pericone Prescription clearly and succinctly explains the rock-solid laboratory
research behind Dr. Pericone's revolutionary theories, revealing that inflammation at the
cellular level, precipitated by poor nutrition, pollution, sunlight, irritating skin-care
treatments, and stress, is the single most powerful cause of the signs of aging. Dr.
Pericone gives you the knowledge and the tools to fight that inflammation from the
inside out, while at the same time decreasing the likelihood of heart disease, cancer,
diabetes, arthritis, and a host of other degenerative diseases.
Step by Step, Dr. Pericone guides you on the road to
improved health and looks and increased well-being, providing:
- a three-day "jump start" diet that will give
you immediate, impossible-to-ignore results
- the twenty-eight-day Pericone Program of meals,
exercise, and skin care
- delicious, nutritious, easy-to-follow recipes
- the latest news in topical applications, supplements,
and age-defying technology, including a breakthrough spider vein treatment for face and
body, overnight skin brightners, and muscle stimulation that rivals surgical face-lifts
- a completely up-to-date resource guide
- and much more!
Packed with more than fifty startling
before-and-after photos, detailed exercise illustrations, the latest research, and case
studies from Dr. Pericone's thriving private practice, The
Pericone Prescription is a lifelong anti-aging program that will benefit your
entire body--and change your life!

Healthy, vibrant skin depends more on what you put in your cheeks than what you rub
on them, says dermatologist Nicholas Pericone. In The Pericone Prescription,
fresh salmon tops the list of must-eat foods for total body rejuvenation. In fact, it is
the star of Pericone's "Three-Day Nutritional Face-Lift," a convincing trial run
for those who are a bit hedgy about committing to his 28-day diet and his supplement, skin
care, and exercise regimen.
Pericone's clear explanation about the adverse effects of
inflammatory foods persuasively argues for shunning destructive, low-fat favorites
(including watermelon, carrots, and bagels) and "culinary horrors" like pizza,
pasta, and beef. Better to eat anti-inflammatory choices (those with a glycemic index of
50 or less) like salmon, halibut, and trout. While the book's mega list of recommended
supplements is a bit hard to swallow (literally and figuratively), the supportive
information Pericone supplies about each is certainly helpful.
Another detailed grocery list--this time for topical
anti-inflammatories--addresses skin care, and his wrinkle-free fitness plan promotes
flexibility, muscle strength, and endurance. Finally, a handful of savory recipes offers
respite to those who only know how to broil. So, despite all the salmon (and the angry
kids whose parents have purged their high-glycemic kitchens), Pericone's prescription
doesn't sound fishy at all. --Liane Emory Thomas
