Longevity Now

A Comprehensive Approach to Healthy Hormones, Detoxification, Super Immunity, Reversing Calcification, and Total Rejuvenation

Longevity Now

Lose weight, boost your immunity, cleanse your blood and organs, and live longer and happier with this comprehensive five-part approach created by leading nutrition and raw food authority David Wolfe. In Longevity Now, Wolfe exposes the number-one cause of all degenerative illness and aging: calcification. Caused by an excess of calcium and the presence of nanobacteria, calcification can be found in some degree in virtually every adult and even some children. It leads to a plethora of illnesses and manifests as achy joints, hardened arteries, cellulite, cysts, kidney stones, gallstones, dental plaque, cataracts, and bone spurs, among many other health problems. By breaking down calcification and removing parasites, heavy metals, and other "unwanted guests" from your system, you can reverse the aging process and eliminate the prospect of degenerative disease from your future. Part 1 of the Longevity Now Program focuses on supplements to dissolve the buildup of calcium in your system, leading to freer movement, a clearer head, and a lighter step. Part 2 focuses on boosting your immunity, using a variety of supplements to make your body as resilient as possible. Part 3 focuses on rejuvenating each and every cell of your body with nutrient-packed supplements and superfoods. Part 4 focuses on using special electromagnetic grounding technologies to eliminate parasites and reconnect you with the rhythmic cycles of Earth's energy field. Part 5 focuses on deep-tissue bodywork and yoga, so that you can move blocked energy around and break up stagnation in typically unaccessed parts of the body. In addition to all this, Wolfe offers abundant additional information to help you more fully live the Longevity Now lifestyle, such as foods to avoid, healthful alternative sweeteners, delicious recipes, and more tips and tricks to keep you on the path of rejuvenation, radiant health, and full-throttle vitality.

Zen Eater

Healthy Longevity Now

Zen Eater

Zen Eater describes my path to healthy life. I started pursuing this path after I experienced a major health problem and realized I couldn't continue the unhealthy behaviors. I came up with the ZenEater concept, and it had greatly changed my life. My health improved dramatically, and I developed the most harmonious relationship with food. It is obvious that our relationship with food is not as good as we want it to be. In most cases, it is a love-hate affair. However, in some instances it results in subjugation - food becomes a wayward lord who instills fear and guilt, who disfigures us and punishes us with numerous diseases. This status quo is profoundly weird because food is supposed to nurture us and give us energy, joy, and satisfaction. Unfortunately, the joy and satisfaction of eating are fleeting, but the aftermath of hastily eaten excessive meals lingers for hours. And when we take into account the long-lasting psychological effect of our bad relationships with food, the situation gets even worse.Simply put, many of us don't know how to eat our food. We lack control over this process. As I said, food is the dictator here.Most of us know that our eating habits are to blame, and when we we finally decide to take action, what do we do? We go on a diet - the most common mistake we make.Diets restrict, diets forbid, diets banish food - there is nothing fair and balanced about dieting. Fad dieting is a daymare filled with hunger, deprivation, and stress.Fad dieting fails because it goes against our physiology; because it is torturous and requires superhuman willpower. But no matter how strong your willpower is, this approach is unsustainable and always ends up in quitting and fast regaining of all the pounds lost. Just ask Oprah Winfrey, the most famous weight cycling "expert". By the way, Oprah has finally adopted a sustainable weight management plan and changed her goal: "Healthy for me is the new skinny." That's exactly the attitude I want you to have - health should be the ultimate goal. And that's where the Zen Eater method comes to your rescue. ZenEater is an essential part of healthy lifestyle that leads to healthy longevity. Does it lead to sustainable weight loss? Rest assured it does, but it is not the main goal. The goal is to create a balanced harmonious relationship with food. When you are in harmony with food, you become a confident, intuitive eater. Your body senses when to start and stop eating so you never overeat and never worry about gaining wait.We need to restore our ability to eat mindfully, therefore I developed a simple tool that will help us do that. Meat the Eatometer! Eatometer is a pedometer for eating. Pedometers saved lives of millions of people. Eatometer can do much better. By changing the way we process food in the mouth, it will make us focus on the food we eat, hence mindful eating. Mindful eating is currently nom du jour, but its concept is so vague, it is really difficult to comprehend it. Eatometer is a quantified representation of mindful eating. It makes the obscure concept of mindful eating clear, easily understandable, and achievable.When you step on a path to longer and healthier life, it will be hard to turn back to your old habits for many reasons - you will see positive changes right of the bat, and the more you get involved with it, the better you are going to feel. Your energy, your outlook, your life quality will keep going up, and the improvements in your health, vitality, and optimism will be dramatic. And finally, Zen Eater is not your usual boring, quasi-academic self-help book. It is full of stories of real people who benefited from the method and real situations that explain what you are dealing with. It is written in a friendly, colloquial manner with affection, understanding, and humor.

Human Longevity

Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Bioenergetics, Molecular Biology, and Evolution

Human Longevity

More than 7 billion people inhabit the earth and all of them are subject to aging. This book is aimed at persons interested in a molecular explanation of how our cells age. Human Longevity: Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Bioenergetics, Molecular Biology, and Evolution is built on the proposition that we age as our mitochondria age. It suggests a revised version of Harman’s famous hypothesis featuring mitochondrial oxidative and energy stresses as the root causes of aging. Human cells are protected from the ravages of aging by a battery of defensive systems including some novel mechanisms against membrane oxidation introduced in this book. This concept is consistent with recent discoveries showing that mitochondria-targeted antioxidants prevent Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and traumatic brain disease in animal models of neurodegeneration. This book explores a unified theory of aging based on bioenergetics. It covers a variety of topics including an introduction to the science of human aging, the Darwinian selection of membranes enabling longevity, a revised mitochondrial membrane hypothesis of aging, and various mechanisms that protect human mitochondrial membranes, thereby enabling longevity.

Aging, Death, and Human Longevity

A Philosophical Inquiry

Aging, Death, and Human Longevity

With the help of medicine and technology we are living longer than ever before. As human life spans have increased, the moral and political issues surrounding longevity have become more complex. Should we desire to live as long as possible? What are the social ramifications of longer lives? How does a longer life span change the way we think about the value of our lives and about death and dying? Christine Overall offers a clear and intelligent discussion of the philosophical and cultural issues surrounding this difficult and often emotionally charged issue. Her book is unique in its comprehensive presentation and evaluation of the arguments—both ancient and contemporary—for and against prolonging life. It also proposes a progressive social policy for responding to dramatic increases in life expectancy. Writing from a feminist perspective, Overall highlights the ways that our biases about race, class, and gender have affected our views of elderly people and longevity, and her policy recommendations represent an effort to overcome these biases. She also covers the arguments surrounding the question of the "duty to die" and includes a provocative discussion of immortality. After judiciously weighing the benefits and the risks of prolonging human life, Overall persuasively concludes that the length of life does matter and that its duration can make a difference to the quality and value of our lives. Her book will be an essential guide as we consider our social responsibilities, the meaning of human life, and the prospects of living longer.
