Age Less / Live More

You’ve got a bum knee or wonky hip. Your doctor says you’re a candidate for a joint replacement, and your insurance has approved the procedure - but you’re not sure if you’re ready for that. You know that joint replacement success rates are extremely high. But you also know this is a major surgery with long-term effects, and you’d like to dig your heels in a little longer. What about platelet rich plasma (PRP)? What about stem cells? On this week’s podcast, you’ll meet a regenerative medical doctor whose work is focused on healing ailing joints.

You’ll learn:

  • Where stem cells come from
  • Exosomes, stem cells, and PRP - what’s the difference?
  • Ethical and legal issues surrounding stem cell harvesting
  • Why bone, rather than tissue, injections are preferred
  • Cost and recovery considerations

Alcohol is involved in 28 percent of all fatal car accidents, 37 percent of all violent crime, and is responsible for an unknown number of mental and emotional health challenges. On the flip side, it also has a rich tradition of craftsmanship and cuisine, culture and celebration. In moderation, alcohol has pro-social benefits, lowers social anxiety, and is loved by billions.

If you’re one of those people who can have a drink now and then without much of a thought and certainly no problem, this podcast is not for you. If drinking is causing you to gain weight, struggle the next morning, or is creating big problems in your life and you want to stop, my guest on this week’s show can help.

Listen to learn

  • Why social pressure to drink is stronger than almost all other lifestyle pressures
  • Helpful language to use during a dry experiment
  • How to “test the waters” of sobriety with a dry month or dry 3-month challenge
  • The harsh reality of sober life in terms of friends and activities

If weight loss is one of your New Year’s resolutions, you’re probably as frustrated and confused as the rest of us with all the conflicting advice and extreme approaches being touted as a forever solution. In 2023, calorie counting resurfaced as a popular approach to weight loss - and that’s just fine - but many people find that their calorie math somehow doesn’t work and are left feeling discouraged. If you can relate, this solo podcast is for you.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • Why calories in / calories out is true but oversimplifies the process
  • Five variables that can muddle up your calorie math
  • The real reason we eat (hint: it’s not for nutrition, unfortunately)
  • Five tips to try instead of (or in addition to) calorie counting
