Dr. Andrew Weil, America’s most widely known authority on integrative medicine and author of numerous bestselling books including Healthy Aging; A Lifelong Guide to Your Physical and Spiritual Well-being, hosts this program that reveals his secrets, strategies, and philosophies on the challenges of getting older. At the heart of HEALTHY AGING is Weil’s belief that although growing old is an irreversible process, there are a myriad of things that people can do to keep their minds and bodies in good working order. To that end, he draws on the new science of biogerontology (the biology of aging), and the secrets of longevity that he has gathered firsthand from cultures around the world. He explains how the body ages, and the impact that gender, genes, environment and lifestyle has on an individual’s experience and perception of it. Through his ‘12 steps to healthy aging’, Weil details an easy to implement diet and lifestyle that protects and spiritually enhances the body in order to achieve the best health throughout the lifelong process of growing older.
