Healthy Aging Revolution and the Healthy Aging Reset
More than 60 percent of Americans have one chronic disease and 40 percent have two or more chronic diseases. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention claims that most of these diseases are preventable and reversible in the early stages by making simple lifestyle changes. 

To avoid chronic disease later in life, it’s essential to make healthy choices early on and continue to make them as you age. Some people believe that after 50 their health is going downhill, so they stop making healthy choices. 

Dr. Sally LaMont notes that we have more control over our health than most people imagine. She shares how to listen to your body and adjust choices rather than taking medicine to cover up the signs that your body is struggling. 

In her program, Healthy Aging Reset, which begins on September 24th, participants will learn how the following can affect the way you age:

  • Inflammation and the role of sugar in tilting our biochemistry out of balance
  • Digestive dysfunction
  • Toxic exposures in our air, food and water
  • Hormonal imbalances
Listen as Dr. Lamont joins Dr. Holly Lucille to discuss healthy aging.
