75: How your diet can slow down the ageing process with Ann Louise Gittleman
It is a total honour to have Ann Louise Gittleman on today’s show. Ann is a top nutritionist and author who is internationally recognised as a pioneer in dietary, longevity, environmental and women’s health issues. Ann was talking about wellbeing before anyone even knew what it meant and at the age of 70, she is still making waves in the health and wellness industry. Ann is an award-winning New York Times bestselling author of over 35 books and has recently added to her collection with her latest book, Radical Longevity.
Her new book depicts a new view of ageing - one that defies conventional wisdom and redefines the ageing process with resilience, vitality and grace for cellular regeneration. The topic of ageing is important for every age as all of us should practicing healthy ageing habits and techniques to ensure we support our health for as long as possible.
Ann does just that and this episode is brimming with information. We discuss why epigenetics are so important when thinking of the longevity of our health, how our body stores trauma and how our bodies are continuously being betrayed by the toxicity of our environment. Ann provides tips on how we can fortify the glands and ward off radiation with certain foods and supplements. While she’s extremely conscious of everything she consumes, she leads a very balanced diet and even encourages people to drink coffee (the purest kind) and indulge in a glass of wine or two! I am very happy to take that advice on board.
Her book is eye-opening and while you may never look at foods in the same way, Ann is proof that her lifestyle will keep you young and healthy for a very long time!
