Most of us have a deep desire to live long and to also live well. And we're blessed to be living in a time where we have access to some of the most cutting edge tools and knowledge ever to radically extend our lifespan. And today I have the pleasure to speak with a true visionary of health and wellness and a pioneer and holistic longevity.

Ann Louise Gittleman is one of the world's foremost experts in functional and integrative medicine. She's an award winning New York Times bestselling author of over 35 books on health and nutrition, covering issues such as diet detox, women's health, men's health, perimenopause, menopause, beauty, and the environment.

Ann Louise holds an MS in nutrition education from Columbia University, has the title of Certified Nutrition Specialist from the American College of Nutrition and a PhD in holistic nutrition. She has also served as the chief nutritionist of pediatric clinic at Bellevue Hospital. As the former director of nutrition at the Pritikin longevity center in Santa Monica, California, she has won numerous awards, including the American Medical Writers Association award for excellence.

Ann Louise first revolutionized diet and detox with her hugely successful Fat Flush series. And she is living proof that getting older does not have to mean slowing down or living life on the sidelines. And then her highly anticipated new book, Radical Longevity, the powerful plant will sharpen your brains, strengthening your body and reverse the symptoms of aging.

She reveals her radical principles for ageless aging and the best kept secrets for expanding our youth span. As she says, "Our biology is not destined to be our biography.)
