Inside & Out
You know those people, the ones who look “young” for
their age. They still get carded when buying wine at 45.
They’re met with disbelief when they request a senior
discount. Even with gray hair and fine lines, some people
just exude youthfulness. Maybe you’re one of them!
I recently went to see a chiropractor who specializes
in supplements and nutrition. I hadn’t been there in about
5 years. I was shocked to see that she hadn’t aged at all—in
fact, she looked younger. I asked her how she does it.
“Functional medicine, plain and simple,” she said. This
approach to health focuses on the body as a whole, with
an emphasis on strengthening organs through holistic
medicine and nutrition. This is the same premise behind
“Live Long and Prosper” on p. 34. We’ve highlighted the
top 10 anti-aging supplements, each of which works to
fortify different systems in the body.
The anti-aging plan that my chiropractor recommended
includes a low-histamine diet and a customized supplement
regimen featuring curcumin, magnesium glycinate, fish
oils (DHA), folic acid, chaste tree berry, amla (read more
about this amazing herb on p. 14), and other nutrients. I can
feel a difference after just a few days. I haven’t made the
switch to a low-histamine diet just yet—I’ll report back on
this! In the meantime, read up on high-histamine foods at
So what’s the secret to aging well? It’s like charisma—
there’s not any one thing you can point to that defines or
explains it. It’s a combination of characteristics. But while
you may or may not be able to do anything about your
charisma score, you can change how your body ages, from
the inside and out.

your approach to anti-aging, email me at the address below.
I’d love to hear from you!
