Outlive: The Science & Art of Longevity
Renowned longevity expert Dr. Peter Attia proposes an exciting reinvention of Western medicine that reframes our thinking on longevity.
Our current system operates using a method that Dr. Attia calls Medicine 2.0, in which we reactively treat diseases and their symptoms, often too late to affect length and quality of life. However, Outlive proposes Medicine 3.0, a paradigm shift in this conventional mindset that examines current scientific evidence and reassesses our daily habits to customize a proactive personal strategy to live better, longer. Most physicians are interested in improving lifespan, but Dr. Attia's plan also focuses on improving healthspan, the quality of your cognitive, physical, and emotional health. Through cutting-edge nutritional interventions, exercise and sleep physiology, and emotional and mental health strategies, Dr. Attia offers a bold strategic and tactical approach for change in which you'll discover:
· Why your "normal" blood test results are oversimplified to the point of uselessness
· It pays to focus on nutritionally biochemistry, not diet--and use cutting-edge technology to determine the right eating pattern for you
· Exercise is proving to be the most potent longevity "drug." But some types are more effective than others.
· You may already suffer from an extremely common, undiagnosed liver condition that could be a precursor to the chronic diseases of aging.
The result: a groundbreaking operating manual for the practice of longevity. Outlive will revolutionise the way we approach our health.
