The secret to living longer is not what we’re told. We’re told it’s the hand we’re dealt. With your genes, you’re predisposed; you have no control.

After working with tens of thousands of patients, Dr. Steven Gundry has learned thats not true. It’s less about the genes we’re dealt and more about our microbiome (Gut and other bacteria) and how we cultivate them. It’s actually the greatest key to longevity.

Learning this about gut bacteria and longevity was the was the motivating factor in his newest release, The Longevity Paradox: How To Die Young at a Ripe Old Age.

Dr. Steven Gundry is a renowned heart surgeon, celebrity doctor, four-time New York Times best-selling author, and medical researcher. He is the author of the following: Diet Evolution, The Plant Paradox, The Plant Paradox Cookbook and The Plant Paradox 30.

After a distinguished surgical career as professor and chairman of cardiothoracic surgery at Loma Linda University, Dr. Gundry changed his focus to exterminating modern diseases with dietary changes.

Based on his findings after two decades of research, Dr. Gundry is now the leading expert on the lectin-free diet as the key to reversing disease and boosting longevity.

He is the director of the International Heart and Lung Institute in Palm Springs, California, and the founder/director of The Center for Restorative Medicine in Palm Springs and Santa Barbara where he treats patients, seven days a week.

And he’s the co-founder of his own supplement and health food line, GundryMD, and the host of the weekly Dr. Gundry Podcast.

In the latest episode of the Create Your Own Life Show, Dr. Steven Gundry sits down with me, Jeremy Ryan Slate, to talk about longevity.
