Why We Need To Reframe Our Approach To Aging

Modern medicine treats each individual disease as if it were a distinct entity separate from everything else that happens in the body. Rather than study the root causes and underlying mechanisms of aging, we look for drugs to block abnormal processes and suppress symptoms. Functional Medicine provides a new road map for healthy aging—one in which we don’t view all diseases of aging as different things.

In today’s episode of my series I’m calling Health Bites, I discuss why we need to reframe our concept of aging, how and why we age the way we do, and what to do about it. What I’ve discovered has blown my mind and changed the way I approach my own health and the health of my patients. I’ve compiled it all into a new book called Young Forever, which comes out on February 21, 2023. Learn more and preorder the book at youngforeverbook.com.
