Details

You can choose your health destiny. Effortless weight loss. Freedom from neurological disorders and other chronic conditions. Boundless energy. A radiant appearance. Sound sleep. A happy belly. A robust immune system. Relief from depression and anxiety. A sharp, fast-thinking brain. A great sense of self-confidence and well-being. A super-high quality of life. These are all terrific goals, and who wouldn't want to achieve them? But such monumental accomplishments don't come without hard work and sacrifices. You can't necessarily turn away from the standard American diet- bread, soda, OJ, sugar, cereal, muffins, bagels, processed foods-and embrace a totally gluten-free, low-carb lifestyle overnight. It takes commitment. It takes effort. But it's doable with the plan outlined in this program. More than a million people around the world have improved their health-physical, mental, and cognitive-thanks to Dr. Perlmutter's bestselling books, Grain Brain and Brain Maker. Now the time has come to bring these two forces together in a highly practical, step-by-step holistic lifestyle program. Welcome to Dr. Perlmutter's Whole Life Plan. Dr. Perlmutter puts his ideas into practice in the real world to show you that living your best life is about much more than what you put in your mouth. It expands upon the core advice in his previous programs and introduces exciting new information about the advantages of eating more fat and fiber, consuming fewer carbs and protein, evicting gluten forever, and catering to your intestinal flora. Food is a central component of the program, but so are other key aspects to achieving the best results: the timing of when you eat, sleep, and exercise; knowing which supplements to take and which medications to potentially drop; reducing daily stress and even chemical exposures in your physical environment; nurturing relationships and your own self-care; addressing the challenges in life with grace and ease; routinely creating goals for your personal development; and finding time for the kinds of physical activities that power the brain while healing the body. The program offers nutritional and health advice that's been validated over and over again in the scientific literature, but also more extensive science has emerged. Even the U.S. government has modified its dietary guidelines to reflect this research, backing away from endorsing low-fat, low-cholesterol diets. If you assume that this is just another diet that will test your willpower and resolve - it will disappoint you on that front. Dr. Perlmutter's Whole Life Plan gives you a jump-start to a healthy way of living that you will be able to sustain indefinitely.

Details

Would you like to feel and look younger by learning simple steps that make your heart younger? The science is clear that having a young heart leads to a young body. Just as your skin ages and wrinkles, your heart can also show signs of aging. When you focus on ways to stay "young at heart," you improve the way you look, think, move, sleep, play, love, and live! America's Healthy-Heart Doctor, Joel Kahn, MD was originally trained to stop heart disease with angioplasty and pills. But after over 25 years as a cardiologist, he has witnessed the near-miraculous impact that diet, exercise, sleep, meditation and supplements have on the heart. According to Dr. Kahn, the vast majority of people who suffer from heart attacks, strokes and other heart-related deaths don't need to suffer all. More than 75 percent of heart disease diagnosis could have been prevented. The most potent medicines and treatments for heart disease are not found in a physician's office, pharmacy or hospital. They have less to do with technology, innovation or even medications but much more to do with what you think, do and eat. In this 60-minute program Dr. Kahn will present his secrets on how to create a whole body solution for a long and healthy life, reveal which simple test can show your real "heart age," and share his Ten Steps to a Younger Heart. Dr. Kahn is a graduate of the University of Michigan and has been practicing invasive, interventional and preventive cardiology in Detroit since 1990.
