September 25, 2015•9 min
What is the key to reverse aging and drastically prolong your lifespan?Robert L. Buckingham, MD, FACP, has been a practicing physician in Ojai, California, for 36 years.Dr. Buckingham believes the key to reversing the aging process lies within a group of cells that line the body's blood vessels, called the vascular endothelium. His new book, Hazing Aging, explores how maintaining the health of these cells through basic lifestyle changes can reverse effects of aging and drastically prolong lifespans.Dr. Buckingham strongly believes in these five key points: Getting old, losing relevance, and feeling bad is a choice. Lifestyle choices are critical to getting old and feeling bad. Comprehensive overhaul of lifestyle choices makes a substantial difference in how we feel and age. Common diseases with no known cure, such as Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and cancer, can be substantially modified by making lifestyle changes. Health care prevention does not have to be complicated and disjointed but can be wrapped around a clear understanding of vascular inflammatory risk mitigation. Listen in as Dr. Buckingham joins Dr. Susanne to share more about his book, as well as tips for slowing (or reversing) aging and increasing your longevity.
