Do you know the difference between lifespan and health span? Lifespan is quantity; healthspan is quality.
Just like lifespan and health span, we also have chronological age and biological age; chronological age represents your life in numbers based on time; biological age represents the vitality of your body at the present moment. Imagine getting chronologically older with more energy, a sharper brain, better sleep, increased muscle mass, better relationships, and more joy!
Our bodies are perfect machines and will run indefinitely when properly cared for. We don't wear out; we actually regenerate. Every three years, all the cells in your body are entirely new. The health and vitality of those cells are dependent on the quality of the cells.
In the past, we have been limited by knowledge and resources, but in our modern age, nearly everyone can leverage these simple biohacks.
Six areas of our life affect our healthspan and biological age: mood, sleep, energy, stress, weight, & brain function. When we biohack these areas, we send messages to our cells to return to their younger versions instead of aging and breaking down.

Denise Schwendeman and Carrie Donegan have a combined 73 years of experience in more than 59 fields. They love their work, they love their lives, and they love helping others. Even though they always promoted the best possible health practices, it wasn't until they learned in July 2022 that aging was a disease and that, as reported in The Journal of the American College of Cardiology, 93% of Americans have suboptimal cardiometabolic health, that they took a radical new look at health and longevity. Their current work and what you will hear on this show is the real-time news on this subject and how you can combat aging to radically reverse your age and live without the diseases of aging.
