When you think of aging, what comes to mind? Do you view it as a positive rite of passage or a negative phenomenon that must simply be endured? You might assume that you’re destined for the latter, but it doesn’t have to be that way. You can be an active participant in your own aging process. Your habits and your environment have a lot of influence on your longevity, and how you’ll feel in your later years.
In this mini-episode, I speak with Dr. Mary Pardee, Dave Asprey, and Dr. Steven Gundry about the difference between healthspan and lifespan, the pillars of aging, and the key components of the Mediterranean diet that support longevity.
