Just read, Young Forever: The Secrets to Living Your Longest, Healthiest Life by Mark Hyman, MD.

Mark Hyman is an American doctor of both Science Medicine and Functional Medicine. He is also an author of several books on nutrition and longevity; including Young Forever: The Secrets to Living Your Longest, Happiest Life (2023), The Blood Sugar Solution: The UltraHealthy Program for Losing Weight, Preventing Disease, And Feeling Great Now, Food Fix: How to Save Our Health, Our Economy, our communities, and Our Planet, Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?, The Pegan Diet: The 21 Practical Principles for Reclaiming Your Health in a Nutritionally Confusing World, to name but few.

I have read five of his books, recently Young Forever, and The Blood Sugar Solution, Food Fix, Food, and The Pegan Diet. I own four of these, and they can be your 'Ahaaa' moments and make you rethink your understanding and approach to holistic health living.

My takeaways from, Young Forever: The Secrets to Living Your Longest, Happiest Life.

Did You Know?

"Health is not valued until sickness comes."

The author of Young Forever: The Secrets to Living Your Longest, Happiest Life, takes the readers to a place and time to rethink and take control of their health-from food you eat to combat diseases-all kinds of diseases that can be healed by the food choices you make, the attitude you bring to your life and that of others, and when incorporating all these to your life holistically, you will live a healthier, happier, and longer life.

Young Forever: The Secrets to Living Your Longest, Happiest Life, is a broad spectrum of robust health and wellness 'know-how and self-help' book that address and offers holistic health approach and strategies that are practical and manageable with discipline and commitment.

Who hates being healthy? None as far as I know! So, this wealth of researched and discoveries in science, medicine, (both Functional and Non-functional

medicine), technological applications, and the increased awareness of "You are what You eat"- food as medicine, will revolutionize how you approach health living and living longer.

Embracing health habits not only gives you healthy body but also longer life. The proponents of living healthier, happier, and longer life contend that your overall health is directly aligned with what you eat- what you eat affects your physical body, mood/emotions, and even your state of mind (mental well-being).

The author offers a deeper analysis of learning how your food choices/diet and lifestyle create beneficial effects on your overall health, how you can take steps to build healthier YOU-eating right and credible foods, physical fitness/exercise, reliable sleep patterns, and rekindling relationships and participation in your community.
