Overview

From bestselling author and renowned cardiologist Dr. Steven Gundry comes an innovative look at getting younger as we age, complete with an action plan to prevent and reverse disease and simple hacks to help anyone look and feel younger than their age

Among the inevitabilities of human life, the process of aging reigns supreme. From the moment we are born, our cells begin to age. There's no way around the fact that all of us are getting older all of the time. But what is not inevitable is the decline that we assume must accompany the journey. Dr. Steven Gundry is a world-renowned surgeon who has been treating mature patients for the majority of his career. Everyone thinks they want to live forever, says Dr. Gundry, until they hit middle age. When they see firsthand the suffering of their parents or worse yet, their peers, the paradox strikes: how can we live to a ripe old age - but enjoy the benefits of youth? Dr. Gundry has been treating his patients with a combination of traditional and lifestyle medicine for decades. And in that time, he has seen thousands of patients reverse their heart disease, go off diabetes medications, eliminate arthritis pain, heal autoimmune issues, and recover from cancer diagnoses. The "diseases of aging" we most fear are not simply a function of age. By and large, these diseases are a byproduct of the way we have lived over the decades, not the decades themselves. In THE LONGEVITY PARADOX, Dr. Gundry shares the art and science of aging well, covering everything from nutrition and supplements to mental and emotional health to skincare and exercise. The latest evidence from Blue Zone populations and clinical studies alike bears out what he has witnessed firstand in his most vibrant elderly patients: those who enjoy long, productive, happy lives typically share a few commonalities: they eat a mostly plant-based diet, including certain key foods; they are non-sedentary and physically active - not marathoners, but walkers, gardeners, and the like; they have a strong social support network - loneliness and social isolation are linked to early death and disease; and they have some kind connection to a belief system, which offers both a sense of purpose and buffers against stress and depression. Written in Dr. Gundry's distinctly provocative, humorous voice , The Longevity Paradox will offer a progressive take on the new science of aging and offer a comprehensive plan for living youthfully well into old age.
