Have you ever worried that you would develop heart disease, diabetes, arthritis or other conditions that are common in your family? Have you ever thought that you may have inherited ‘bad genes?’
Welcome to The Growing Older, Living Younger Project, where you will find strategies and tips to help you stay youthful, healthy and vibrant. Scientists are discovering that there are many ways in which we can change the effect of these ‘bad genes’ so that we need not age as our parents have. Through changes in lifestyle, you may prevent or reverse diabetes, lose your ‘middle age spread’, ease the pain of arthritis and have healthy, smooth, radiant skin.
My book, Growing Older, Living Younger: The Science of Aging Gracefully and the Art of Retiring Comfortably describes my journey back to health during rehabilitation from spinal surgery following sciatic nerve compression and four months of pain and fear that I would never dance again. On this journey I discovered the lifestyle changes that ultimately defined my personal roadmap back to health, and the dance floor.
Like me, the ‘dancing doc’ and entrepreneur, who plans to continue dancing and networking for the next 20 years, as you develop your own roadmap, you can sleep like a baby, wake up with energy anticipating a fun-filled day, enjoy fresh, wholesome food and exercise your mind and body.
In my book, I show how my Roadmap to Living Younger developed as I explored the science of ageing, genetics and epigenetics through the lens of my Medical Biochemistry speciality knowledge.
My podcast Growing Older, Living Younger, will feature guest experts who will discuss myriad ways in which you can affect aging at the cellular level though your food, your exercise, training your brain or finding friends. As well you may enjoy my conversations with folks like you, who have joined the GOLY Project to find their personal roadmaps to aging youthfully.
As a retired physician, I no longer practice medicine, diagnose, treat or prescribe for medical conditions. Instead I help people explore seven foundational pillars that support an extended healthspan and a vibrant, joy filled life.
