It’s a question on many people’s minds: Why do some people live such long, active lives, while so many of us struggle as we get older? Dr. Steven Gundry set out to answer this question and what he learned is shocking.
In this program, The Longevity Paradox, Dr. Gundry shares informative, life-changing information and introduces an easy, step-by-step approach to help you feel healthier and more youthful today— no matter your age. Dr. Gundry also exposes the hidden health threats that are shortening our lifespans, debunks 5 of the biggest myths about aging, and reveals the secrets of the world’s longest-living people.
The Longevity Paradox with Steven Gundry, MD, is based on the latest scientific research and on the experiences of everyday people struggling with autoimmune diseases, obesity, diabetes, digestive problems, inflammation, heart attacks, joint pain, brain fog, and premature aging. According to Dr. Gundry, age really is just a number and anyone can reclaim their health for a longer, healthier, more youthful old age.
Dr. Steven Gundry was previously the professor and chairman of cardiothoracic surgery at Loma Linda University School of Medicine. In 2000, Dr. Gundry started his own practice dedicated to using diet to reverse and prevent chronic illness. Since then, Dr. Gundry has shown thousands of his patients how dietary and lifestyle changes can dramatically reverse health problems that traditional medicine could not help. He’s also the author of the New York Times bestsellers The Plant Paradox and The Longevity Paradox.
The pledge event was recorded at KQED with Greg Sherwood as the host.
I’ll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant
“The medicalization of American life from birth to death is killing our souls.”
– Hattie Bryant
As much as we all want to believe we can live forever, we all know deep down that it simply can’t be true.
From this program viewers learn that there are things each of us can do to live fully, all the way to the end. Anyone who is willing to take four simple steps now, while healthy, can minimize if not avoid entirely, the pain, suffering, confusion and disagreements that can arise when end-of-life healthcare wishes are not clearly spelled out.
Americans need this information because 70% say they want to die peacefully surrounded by friends and family … while actually 70% are dying in institutions surrounded by strangers.
Few people choose to contemplate critical illness or the inevitability of death until their time comes. Because possibilities are rarely discussed, many people are unprepared or unable to make critical end-of-life decisions and spend their last days in over-medicalized and unnecessarily painful and protracted situations.
Breaking through the taboo of discussing death, Hattie Bryant shows that we have choices.
