How Dr. Dale Figtree Healed non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Naturally in 1980!

In 1977, at the age of 27, Dale Figtree was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. After six months of treatment and enduring the maximum allowable lifetime dose of radiation (yikes), her tumor was reduced but not gone. Surgery was not an option and she was told that there was nothing more they could do.

At that moment that Dale decided to take control of her situation. Instead of giving up and preparing to die, she took Massive Action and decided to radically transform her life and her body.

Her healing journey was incredibly difficult, and she came very close to death, but she persevered and prevailed!

Three years later her cancer was gone and she is now a 41 year survivor!

This is an interview you do not want to miss. You're going to love hearing the inspiring story and wisdom of Dr. Dale Figtree. Enjoy!

Dr Valter Longo on Fasting, Longevity and the Fasting Mimicking Diet

Today I am beyond thrilled to share my first interview of 2018 with you...

It's Dr. Valter Longo!

Dr. Valter Longo is recognized as a global leader in aging, nutrition, fasting, and stem cell regeneration with over 100 peer reviewed publications in top tier journals including Science, Nature, Cell, JAMA and more.

A few years ago, Dr. Longo and his team at USC made the ground-breaking discovery that fasting regenerates the immune system, which I reference often.

He also developed the Fasting Mimicking Diet, which is a 5-day, plant-based, calorie-restricted diet that nourishes the body while producing the same powerful effects as water fasting including autophagy, protection of healthy cells, weakening of cancer cells, immune system regeneration, and more.

He is also author of the brand new book The Longevity Diet. It's a great read. I highly recommend it.

In our interview, Dr. Longo and I discuss his research on the science of longevity and the powerful effects of fasting and the Fasting Mimicking Diet.

I know you will enjoy this fascinating interview with Dr. Valter Longo!

Dr. John Kelly - Stop Feeding Your Cancer

Dr. John Kelly MD is a recently retired GP from Dublin, Ireland with 40+ years of experience in the medical profession, working in the US, Africa and Ireland. Over a decade ago, he became interested in nutritional science and the link between animal protein and cancer growth and began a field trial, recommending that all of his patients with cancer adopt a plant-based diet. 

The results of his trial were remarkable. All of the patients who strictly adhered to an animal protein-free diet found that their cancer stopped growing and spreading. 

In 2014, Dr. Kelly published a book entitled Stop Feeding Your Cancer, which I've read and highly recommend. Get it on amazon here:

Dan Buettner on How to Live to 100 and Beyond

Dan Buettner (@BlueZones) is an internationally recognized speaker, researcher, explorer, National Geographic Fellow and multiple New York Times bestselling author.

In 2003, Buettner became interested in hotspots around the world with unusually high percentages of people living past 100. Collaborating with anthropologists, historians, dietitians, and geneticists, he identified five such regions and organized research trips to these destinations in an attempt to reverse engineer longevity.

His work was first published in 2008 by National Geographic in a fascinating book called The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from People Who Live the Longest, which details the diet and lifestyle habits of the healthiest, longest-living people groups on earth.

And many of these diet and lifestyle habits will surprise you, because they directly contradict the advice of many well known health and diet "experts" today.

If you want to live a long healthy life, I think it makes sense to learn from people who are consistently doing it. Don't you?

And that's why the books in The Blue Zones series are some of my favorite books on health and longevity.

Four years ago this week I published a blog post about Stamatis Moraitis, who healed his terminal lung cancer just by moving to a Blue Zone (Ikaria) and adopting their way of life!

I've been a fan of Dan for years and it was an absolute thrill to interview him. Special thanks to Dr John McDougall for connecting us.
