A very small investment for a great outcome

Invest in your future now

Ensure you enjoy good health in your later years by taking positive action now


There’s no doubt that feeling fit and healthy contributes positively to ALL aspects of life. But TIME works against us and WITHOUT SOME EFFORT, our health will decline as we age.


You may already have children and you may have started thinking: I really want to be healthy so that I am well enough to play with and enjoy my grand children. Or perhaps: I'm working very hard now but I want to still be fit and healthy enough to enjoy life when some of the pressure reduces.


These are realistic hopes but you will have to make some lifestyle choices now if you want these and your other plans to be realised.


THE 'UNPLEASANT' FACTS ARE:

IF YOU ARE OF AVERAGE OR EVEN BETTER THAN AVERAGE HEALTH NOW AND ARE NOT TAKING POSITIVE ACTION:

  • It is more likely than not that in ten years’ time you will have some form of chronic disease for which you will be taking medication. In the USA (for example), prescription drug use increases by about 10% each decade and reaches an extraordinarily high 87% for those aged between 65 and 79! It continues to rise from 80 onwards but more slowly.
  • The most common drug prescriptions in most Western countries are for Diabetes, Heart Disease and Hypertension, which are all largely preventable diseases. If your diet and lifestyle are not optimized, it’s likely you will suffer from at least one of these preventable diseases.
  •  Your risks of having arthritis and/or cancer also greatly increase as you age and some of these risks can be reduced by optimizing your diet and lifestyle.

THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO MAKE CHANGES THAT WILL REDUCE OR EVEN ELIMINATE MANY OF THESE RISKS. MY 4 SESSION COURSE WILL SHOW YOU MANY CRITICAL STEPS THAT YOU’VE PROBABLY NOT HEARD MENTIONED BEFORE.


WHY I CREATED THIS COURSE?


I became interested in questions relating to aging when I was just a young child. One day, when we were playing in our back lane, I met a boy with Down’s syndrome and wondered what was wrong with this very nice boy and why he couldn’t understand how to play our games? I decided there and then that I was going to work out what could be done about this?

Fast forward about fifteen years and I obtained a PhD in genetics and much of my early postgraduate work revolved around prenatal diagnosis of Down Syndrome. As you might know, Down syndrome is caused by an individual having three copies of chromosome 21 in most of their cells and this is usually initiated by an error in the division of the mother’s cells that produce her eggs. These types of mistakes can occur at any age but are always greatly increased as a woman grows older – the risk is increased exponentially from about age 37. SO WHY AGE 37?


I spent many years researching this problem, but an important early finding we made was that the types of errors of cell division that lead to Down syndrome were not limited to the eggs but they also occurred in other cells, for example blood cells, at the same age. In other words, serious biological aging starts at about age 37 and it is a WHOLE BODY problem.

Because my journey through science wasn’t always smooth – for example, a change in political power in South Australia closed down our hospital-based laboratory, I wasn’t able to continue my research into aging in an organized manner. So, although I’ve published many scientific papers on the mechanism of ageing, my research and publication time was limited.

To try to make up for this, now that I am officially retired, I am writing books and creating courses to teach people about the process of aging and what they can do to reduce its negative effects. And of course, as I write, I learn from other published research and I’m keen to share everything I am learning with anyone who wants to optimize their own health and is willing to make some changes where necessary.
