There are plenty of anti-aging skincare products out there claiming to help turn back time. But what if there was actually a way to rejuvenate cells at their deepest levels? I’m here with Dr. Gladden today to talk all about the research on aging and how to make 100 the new 30. Once a practicing cardiologist with his own heart group with ten offices and the co-founder of a heart hospital, Dr. Gladden has since shifted his focus.
Faced with being told his health problems at age 50 were just part of aging, Dr. Gladden decided to do something about it. Since then he’s been a pioneer in the field of longevity and runs the Gladden Institute. He’s helped develop and implement cutting-edge technologies that help our bodies turn back the clock.
We go deep into the different methods he uses and some practical ways we can implement these principles at home. We’ll also cover how as parents we can set our children up for longevity success. There’s so much helpful info packed into today’s episode and I’m sure you’ll learn a lot. So let’s jump in!
