LONGEVITY SECRETS: How To Slow & Reverse Aging In Days! | Mark Hyman

Get my FREE guide 3 Steps to Reverse Aging when you sign up for my weekly health picks ๐Ÿ‘‰

Traditionally, we view aging as an inevitable consequence that happens to our bodies as we get older. We think that as we gain more years of life, it is a given that we begin to slow down, become less agile, lose our memories, and gain more chronic diseases.

Longevity researchers are beginning to reframe and reclassify aging as a disease, not a consequence. This is a very crucial distinction because according to the Functional Medicine model, diseases can be prevented, treated, and cured.

When we start to look at aging as a disease, we can start to ask what the cause of aging is. And, guess what? We actually have some answers beyond just getting old. There are a lot of different functions within your body that contribute to aging.

In this video, I discuss all the steps to creating a healthier life for optimal aging.

    My paternal grandfather lived a very good and healthy life. He died at the age of 95 of cardiac arrest. His eye sight was good , he never had joint pains. At age of 95 he would wake up at 4 am and pray after preforming ablution with ice cold water in December. He was mentally fit. He got no health issues in his entire life. He could walk several kms without any issue till he died.

  • Kristie Gao says:

    Highly appreciate Dr. Hymanโ€™s great efforts for helping our health!!!

  • Carolina Paez says:

    This video is an absolute gem. The future of medicine. Thank you, Dr. Hyman!

    • Jose Caldeira says:

      I totally agree, Carolina. Most every medical student and doctors should watch this video, even if it’s to expand on it.

  • Andrea Vanda says:

    Dr. Hyman, thank you for all your efforts to bring us back to good health. This is ALL very involved, especially going through all the testing, but I agree is optimal. However, I don’t think most people have the money for all these tests and supplements. The best, and theoretically most effective thing, would be to ban the thousands of toxic chemicals in our environment, take all the additives out of our food supply, and retrain all the allopathic doctors who practice prescription writing instead of healing. In other words, go back in time when these health destroyers (big food corporations, etc.) didn’t exist. That would be incredibly healing for all life on this planet. Then we wouldn’t have to worry under what conditions the strawberries were grown in, what chemicals they sprayed on the lettuce, and if the salmon was farm raised or not. So, the REAL problem is societal, and the greed and the quest for the Almighty dollar has contaminated EVERYTHING and is destroying humanity.

      Helpful information!

    • ChipsAplentyBand says:

      Despite a very healthy/improved diet, I looked into being evaluated for ongoing inflammation/toxicity by a doctor who does this (hard to find in my area to begin with) and could not proceed, though I needed to do so, because insurance would not cover the thousands of dollars of evaluation/testing/detox work of this particular kind that’s necessary. People needlessly suffer and die for ridiculous reasons like this because of the allopathic model’s predominance in our very broken healthcare system. Only the conscientious/informed rich who can independently afford this kind of heathcare apart from insurance restrictions have a chance, it seems. What a pity.

  • Trade with Britain says:

    This is such incredible health and lifestyle advice. It’s a shame few doctors advise their patients like Dr Hyman.

  • Sun Ok Lee says:

    I think everyone in the world has to listening the podcast..itโ€™s life saver ๐Ÿ‘ thank you so much Dr Mark Hyman for your caring & passionate lecture โค๏ธ

  • RustyBolts says:

    Doc Hyman, I have applied most of the things you suggest in this and other videos over the past 12 years. The result is that I am far healthier now than 12 years ago. Please keep up the good work and thank you very much. You are helping many people.

    • Ruby Lady says:

      How wonderful for you๐Ÿ˜Š. My husband and I are 39 and 42, and I told him 7 months ago that I wanted him to be with me for the last 20 years of my life, and so now he is only allowed to eat what I give him lol. We both went on a Healthy Keto, and he Las lost 75 pounds ds so far, has so much more energy, doesn’t need his midday nap anymore and feels better than he has in years! Of course, keto isn’t the answer for everyone, it’s about lowering insulin and healing Metabolic Syndrome, but it’s working for us! We feel better and are hopeful for our future!

  • Moosefox7 says:

    I wish Iโ€™d known all of this before age 69. A year ago I began to totally change my eating habits and lifestyle and now at 70 feel healthier than I did at 50. Itโ€™s amazing!

    • Gloria TR says:

      Everyday matters. Live your best left at 70. You have many more years to enjoy.

    • Cavsome Cadence says:

      The saddest thing is that in this country we actually focus on separating ourselves and isolating ourselves. When we get on elevators we are supposed to ignore each other and look forward. When we come to a stop at a stop light? We are supposed to stay looking forward because to actually look at someone is a social fall part and extremely dangerous. As we walk down the street we are not to look at each other. I now live in a state where people are weary of 3ofthosewhowerenotbornhere. We are actually called foreigners. Americans who come to this state who were not born here are called farners, How sad.

    • Moosefox7 says:

      @Cavsome Cadence I sure donโ€™t fit in to the non social category. I start conversations with people even on a short elevator ride. And on escalators or waiting in line at a store. Every where I go I talk to the people around me. No one on all my 70 years has told me to shut up or seemed angry or threatening.

    • Jeanie says:

      Be careful who you stare in an elevator. Glance over, and be polite, but, you donโ€™t need to talk to everyone you meet, especially a weirdo๐ŸŒš

  • KATHLEEN2304 says:

    Wow! Dr. Hyman, this podcast was so enlightening! Thank you from the depths of my heart for sharing your experiences and knowledge in such a simple and effective way. Though long, it definitely held my attention. I started late evening and I finished up on rising the following morning. I couldn’t wait to continue! You really helped me to understand how to take care of my health and know the markers. Thank you for caring and sharing. May God bless you and keep you and your family healthy! THANK!๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

  • Speeen 79 says:

    Straight talk, no BS. So glad I found this! Many thanks Dr. H๐Ÿ™

  • Midnight Ventures says:

    Two things that can really “anti” age you. Sleep well and drop the sugar or reduce it dramatically.

    Reducing stress is a bonus. You’re welcome.

  • Chris Chris says:

    Mark is really excited about his findings that he gets people engaged here. I started mine at 50. I agree totally with him and the muscle mass. My left arm muscle was wasting after one of the two ligaments detached years ago unknowingly. After pointless physios, I went on regular cardio and basic weight lifting, and in 6 months, the remaining ligaments have become stronger and fuller. It’s unbelievable!

    • John Roberts says:

      I wished I knew all this 8 years ago, maybe my wife might be with me today. She past last March from AD. ๐Ÿ˜ข

    • John Roberts says:

      I would like Dr. Hyman to be my doctor. I would ask for a full health evaluation and change my health, 82 by December.

    • I-P says:

      I do not know how to eat healthy. I am over wait due to high levels of stress. Please tell me where to buy your book. I need all the help. Also by the way I only have 1/2 thyroid and no gallbladder thanks to the medical system that never focuses on help to retain your organs but they are constantly willing to destroy your organs. Never have I been given the tools to succeed with changing my diet.

  • Baby Girl says:

    I hardly eat sugar. Iโ€™m 45 and was asked if I was 20 over the weekend. I looked much older when I was younger. I started working out 15-20 minutes 5xโ€™s a week and overcame my addiction to sugar. When I was 30 I looked 45. I also removed toxic people from my life. I follow my happiness.

    • donna brown says:

      Nice..I say..yes..I am a lot older than I look โค

    • gettingphinenow says:

      Love this. Good for you! I definitely have to deal with sugar addiction ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

    • Joe Mac says:

      I need to give up sugar again. I did a few months ago, lost 10lbs in a week and my friend from church said my skin was glowing and that I looked 10 years younger. Weird compliment for one guy to give to another guy, but the change your body can make when sugar is removed is crazy fast.

    • Reddreilly422 says:

      Same here. At 45 ppl naturally assume im in my 30s and bout fall over when they find out i uave grown kids and a grandbaby! And cycle is still regular, 3 days and pain free for years with zero cravings or mood swings.

    • elizabeth Abbott says:

      Just learning French aged 18, I read Le Mal du Sucre… I didnt get off it til a few years later; now I use pure maple syrup or honey; or Stevia; a natural sweetener; not toxic… all is well.

  • Gloria TR says:

    I love you Dr. Hyman, I recently lost my sister to heart disease that no one knew she had. I am in clinical medicine as a Chaplain, and I know the problems with tradition medicine especially as it relates to aging and how people over a certain age, weight or race are treated in hospitals. The one area that I want to really thank you for including in this video has to do with your spiritual health and relationships. So many people underestimate how important a role God and relationships play in their health. I am currently dealing with breast health, no cancer, as well as some microbiome issues. I will be listening to you daily now, as well as renewing my practice of meditation. Thank you so much for being so caring about people of all ages and backgrounds regardless of their current health status. May you continue to be blessed and enjoy amazing health.

  • Frances Mingo says:

    My mother is 100yrs old. She still drives, cleans and cooks for herself. She started using a cane when she was 98 for balance.

    • Lucille Fant says:


    • Joe Mac says:

      That’s always awesome to see. At my old job there was a lady (regular customer) who was 106 when I quit but I had known her for 10 years. She was sharp as a tack, always telling jokes and looked 80yo tops. I knew she was 106 because I had seen her ID. She was born a few months before the Titanic sank. It wasn’t until she was 102 that she started using a walker for balance. I’ve searched Google every now and then for an obituary for her since I’ve left but I haven’t seen one. Hopefully she’s still rocking!

  • Sammie baxter says:

    I loved this, Dr. Hyman, I wish I would have found your channel years ago but Iโ€™m glad I found it now! Iโ€™m in the beginning stages of changing my life ridding myself from alcohol, tobacco, and a healthy diet at 40. My move to Philippines will help my mental. God brought me to your channel at the right time!

  • Patti Windhorst says:

    I was an early teen with Chronic Hypoglycemia, which was not even classified back then (I’m 64), but my Doctor took us seriously, and helped us navigate through it. So, I haven’t consumed sugar, and have always kept carbs low in my life. I always get mistaken for being in my 40s. I am not on any medications, only vitamins.

  • Susan Puckett says:

    Thank you so much for all of this information!! Itโ€™s gold. Iโ€™ve recently done research to find out that the ketogenic diet can help heal seizures/epilepsy and that amino acids can help a LOT of things such as mental health, alcoholism, seizures, weight loss. Iโ€™m cutting WAY back on sugar. Again, thank you.

  • Margaret Barr says:

    This is a true doctor who cares and has his patients best interest at heart. Thank the lord more guys are coming forward like him to speak out….thank you all whoever you are. โคโคโค

  • Ella Presley says:

    When I changed to the “plant based” way of eating, it seems everything about me changed. My skin and hair got better, I don’t feel tired all the time like I did before I started the “plant based” diet, my hair got thicker and grew, and I feel great at 78 years of age!! I feel healthier than ever!!!
