The Keys To Aging Well

Episode 142 1h 2m


When it comes to longevity, the goal isn’t just to live as long as possible. The true objective is to live as vibrantly and energetically as possible, for as long as possible. So how exactly do we do this?

On this episode of The Doctor’s Farmacy, I was happy to sit down and talk with Dr. Frank Lipman about the biggest controlling factor when it comes to aging, the main longevity regulators in the body, and what we can do to activate them. Dr. Lipman and I talk about the role our epigenomes play in cellular aging and deterioration, and how we can optimize the function of our genes with simple tweaks to have a profound impact on how we age. We touch on a number of things you can do to promote healthy aging, including taking a cold rinse after a hot shower, rolling out fascia, getting adequate magnesium, taking in direct sunshine in the morning, and much more.

There is clear scientific evidence that supports the idea that lifestyle interventions like caloric restriction, fasting, and a ketogenic diet support the health of positive gene pathways, enhance the production of endogenous stem cells, power up the brain, increase the production of antioxidants, and even reduce inflammation. Dr. Lipman shares the most effective fasting method, and why fasting is so powerful when it comes to longevity and healthy aging. We also discuss the important role of mitochondria in aging and disease, and what we can do to boost mitochondrial function. Dr. Lipman shares supplements he recommends for longevity, and some promising anti-aging treatments as well.
