I am pleased and excited to tell you that my latest book,
Longevity Decoded – The
7 Keys to Healthy Living
A few years ago I was asked to give a talk about the aging
process to a group of people contemplating moving to a retirement community.
Expecting a dozen or so, I was delightfully surprised at the turnover of over
100, a group that asked many questions at the end. Then asked to do it again and in another
venue, I felt that with this level of interest it would be worth while to write
a book. For the past 2 ½ years I have interviewed experts, listened to
lectures, done a lot of reading and then developed the book. Here is a summary
There is an inexorable process that begins in early adulthood in which
every bodily function begins to decline at about 1% per year (with great
variation from organ to organ, year to year and person to person.) Unnoticed at
first, the decline eventually reaches a state where that organ’s function is
impaired for daily living. For example, bone strength declines creating
osteoporosis with the chance for bone fracture; cognitive decline leads to
memory loss and muscle decline leads to loss of strength. Meanwhile, as aging progresses the risk for
developing complex chronic illnesses such as coronary artery disease, cancer,
rheumatoid arthritis or Alzheimer’s disease accelerates.
The aging process cannot be stopped and diseases cannot be entirely prevented
but with modifications of lifestyles, the rate of decline can be significantly
slowed and the risk of developing a chronic illness can be greatly reduced. The
result will be a longer healthier life.
You can live a long and
healthy life. There is no magic pill, injection, elixir or Fountain of Youth,
but you can achieve it with simple lifestyle modifications:
Eating the right foods
Getting the right exercise
Reducing and managing stress
Improving the quality of sleep
Remaining intellectually engaged
Staying involved socially
it has stood the test of time and because it puts you in charge of shaping your
future. There is no monetary cost but it is a rigorous program that is
admittedly difficult for many to implement fully.
Everyone wants to live a long and healthy life—Longevity Decoded is your roadmap.
The “seven keys” cost nothing, except your time and commitment. I offer you straightforward advice for achieving and
maintaining good health over a long life.
Following the “seven keys” will pay generous returns over the years
ahead, and there’s a bonus: You’ll
become a role model and inspiration to your children and grandchildren! Indeed,
they can benefit the most by following the “7 keys” because, like saving for
retirement, the benefits compound over time.
Should you decide to take a look and read the book, I would be most
appreciative if you would leave a 2-3 sentence review on Amazon. Potential
readers read those reviews and it impacts Amazon’s search algorithm. And tell your friends and colleagues; that’s the best possible book marketing. Many
