Description

From the author of the New York Times best-seller The Plant Paradox comes a groundbreaking plan for living a long, healthy, happy life.

From the moment we are born, our cells begin to age. But aging does not have to mean decline. World-renowned surgeon Dr. Steven Gundry has been treating mature patients for most of his career. He knows everyone thinks they want to live forever, until they hit middle age and witness the suffering of their parents and even their peers. So how do we solve the paradox of wanting to live to a ripe old age — but enjoy the benefits of youth?

This groundbreaking audiobook holds the answer. Working with thousands of patients, Dr. Gundry has discovered that the “diseases of aging” we most fear are not simply a function of age; rather, they are a byproduct of the way we have lived over the decades. In The Longevity Paradox, he maps out a new approach to aging well — one that is based on supporting the health of the “oldest” parts of us: the microorganisms that live within our bodies.

Our gut bugs — the bacteria that make up the microbiome — largely determine our health over the years. From diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s to common ailments like arthritis to our weight and the appearance of our skin, these bugs are in the driver’s seat, controlling our quality of life as we age.

The good news is, it’s never too late to support these microbes and give them what they need to help them — and you — thrive. In The Longevity Paradox, Dr. Gundry outlines a nutrition and lifestyle plan to support gut health and live well for decades to come. A progressive take on the new science of aging, The Longevity Paradox offers an action plan to prevent and reverse disease as well as simple hacks to help anyone look and feel younger and more vital.

    At 56 I’m on a personal quest to grow old with zero prescribed medications. I have switched my diet to a pescatarian based whole food staple. I want to optimize my health and attempt to manage all of my minerals, nutrients, and vitamins through food. I’ve dropped my weight from 214 to 165 and dropped my waistline from 44” to 30”. I eat extremely healthy and eviscerate all information I can regarding nutrition. This is by far the most succinct book on health, wellness, and living a long and healthy life I have found yet. I will continue to reread this for the amount of information is by far too extensive for me to remember. Thank yourself and your gut buddies will thank you for imbibing in this deliciously nutritional brain food of a book.

    It’s a good fiction. Gut buddies is an excellent character in the book that does everything. The list of supplements is nauseating. You have to be insane to take all the proposed supplements. Dr. Gundry is a good man and means well. The research on which the fictional longevity is founded is mythical but interesting. The beauty of a paradox is that it can hold every possible contradictions. Much like metaphysical poetry, the book is joy. Eat less, fast for 16 hours every day, walk twice a week, and stay away from lots of meat and you will live a long, healthy life. Cheers.
