Uncertainty Today I would like to share some of ...

Our hearts are amazing muscles.  They start beating 6 weeks after conception, ...
  • The Best Diet for the Inflammation of Aging One of the most recognized consequences of aging is a decline in immune function, illustrated by vulnerability to dying from the flu and poor response to vaccinations. But, about 20 years ago, a paper was published showing that the immune cells of 80-year-olds produced significantly more pro-inflammatory signals. As I discuss in my video, How to Counter the Inflammation ...
  • Never Act Your Age! Dr. Ellen Langer, a Harvard University researcher, conducted a now famous study back in the late seventies. Using older men as subjects, she immersed them in an environment from twenty years earlier. Room trappings were from the fifties. Conversation about fifties-era topics was in the present tense. Recorded radio programs were fifties vintage. This immersion ...
  • Body, Brains, and Bliss As an Orthopod, I began coaching my patients to change their bodies through fitness in order to save their mobility, a key factor in remaining vital and active.

  • Here’s How To Master Your Age Age Does Not Determine Your Fitness Level.

  • How to Lose Weight Eating More Food What happens if you add fruit to your regular diet, eating three apples or pears as between-meal-snacks every day? I explore this in my video Eating More to Weigh Less, which I titled as a nod to Dr. Dean Ornish’s smash bestseller. Fruit is low in calories, but it does have some. It isn’t calorie-free.
