Description

From the author of the New York Times best-seller The Plant Paradox comes a groundbreaking plan for living a long, healthy, happy life.

From the moment we are born, our cells begin to age. But aging does not have to mean decline. World-renowned surgeon Dr. Steven Gundry has been treating mature patients for most of his career. He knows everyone thinks they want to live forever, until they hit middle age and witness the suffering of their parents and even their peers. So how do we solve the paradox of wanting to live to a ripe old age - but enjoy the benefits of youth? 

This groundbreaking audiobook holds the answer. Working with thousands of patients, Dr. Gundry has discovered that the “diseases of aging” we most fear are not simply a function of age; rather, they are a byproduct of the way we have lived over the decades. In The Longevity Paradox, he maps out a new approach to aging well - one that is based on supporting the health of the “oldest” parts of us: the microorganisms that live within our bodies. 

Our gut bugs - the bacteria that make up the microbiome - largely determine our health over the years. From diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s to common ailments like arthritis to our weight and the appearance of our skin, these bugs are in the driver’s seat, controlling our quality of life as we age. 

The good news is, it’s never too late to support these microbes and give them what they need to help them - and you - thrive. In The Longevity Paradox, Dr. Gundry outlines a nutrition and lifestyle plan to support gut health and live well for decades to come. A progressive take on the new science of aging, The Longevity Paradox offers an action plan to prevent and reverse disease as well as simple hacks to help anyone look and feel younger and more vital. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Lots of good info, but also misinformation

I learned a lot of new insight in this book especially about the microbiome. But he is mistaken about a lots of the foods which are bad for the gut, especially limiting the animal protein that he does since it’s factory farmed meat that’s the problem but it’s clear the studies he’s draws conclusions from are just on general meat consumers. But still a good listen, just don’t take everything to heart

Must read tells you why your fat and sick.

This book will change your life if you follow it. almost any sickness you can think of starts in the gut and can be fixed in the gut. All the things that happen to us that we think are part of aging, is becasue our gut isn't being taken care. This book goes into alot of technical medical and biology, but he explains it in laymens trems so that anyone can follow along. This is going to get another listen and read from me.

#1 book on health I have ever read

The information in Dr. Gundry’s book has changed my life and the lives of those around me profoundly. It needs to be standard reading for all health care professionals, teachers and coaches. I do plan on dying young at a ripe old age!!

Possibly the most important health book to date

An easy to understand and straight forward explanation of the source of most modern disease, your gut biome. Dr. Gundry walks us through the topic with good humour and candor. Don't miss this milestone achievement in disease prevention.

Dr Gundry explains how to fix your health and why

Dr Gundry explains how to fix your health and why it is the way it is based on the foods we eat. Yes there are other books out there that are similar but Gundry takes it to the next level. Easy to understand and realise we need to be our own health advocates.

Too much information for a beautiful way of living

I would like to thank Dr Gundry for having researched and written great books to help us find better health and respecting the planet. A book for children should be written with pictures of our gut buddies and all the ammunition to create and keep our good health.

amazing!!

I have been a reader and researcher of health and anti aging for over 20 years. Nowhere in one place, have I found a more comprehensive outline of what we can do to live a longer, healthier and happier life! If i could do one thing magically, it would be to have everyone in the world read or listen to this book!!

A delightful informative sequel to Plant Paradox

I've already read the Plant Paradox book so I was already familiar with the lifestyle changes that Dr. Gundry recommends here. The book feels like a natural sequel to his previous books only I feel he talks a little more down to earth in this book. What I mean is that Dr. gundry has gotten better at speaking to the layman. I know some are turned off by the terminology and science verbage of the lifestyle and it stops them from understanding and embracing these eating habits. It feels like he's dialed it down a bit here to include these people and they can grasp the ideas better. There's plenty of terminology and science. I don't mean to sound like he's dumbing the book down. I feel that his previous books were bombarding you with information, terminology, and scientific research that may have some feeling inundated. He's eased up a bit on that front. There are some areas that overlap with his previous book... but that is to be expected and he expands upon those points to clarify his position. The book gets into some discussions that he's had with colleagues and occasionally he gets into ideas in other books that other authors have brought up... not to mention he touches upon a couple of his patients. Approximately three-quarters of the book is dedicated towards lifestyle changes, eating habits, and why you should include certain things in your nutrition. I would say the last quarter of the book is dedicated to ingredients, different foods, and recipes that should be in your diet. Excellent book and well narrated by the author himself. I would recommend to anyone looking to extend their life and become a centenarian themselves. However; I would recommend his previous book, The Plant Paradox before listening to this one so that these ideas don't sound so foreign. It can be a lot to take in.

Not convinced

I read a lot of nutrition and longevity books, and I can't say there was much new information here. Dr. Gundry has latched on to pectins as being the root of all nutritional evil, and considering pectins are plentiful in beans, some nuts, and many fruits, including citrus, as well as vegetables such as carrots and sweet potatoes -- now on the "do not eat" list if you follow Gundry's advice, I just don't buy it. I think if you have specific dietary issues, this may be a potential plan to follow, but for most people, cutting out the long list of foods containing pectins probably wouldn't do a darn thing at best, and would deprive you of nutrients at worst. When looking at populations such as blue zones where people live longer than average, and healthier than average too, it's frequently noted that they eat plenty of fruit, beans, and veg. Dr. Gundry's argument is that they're living longer despite that. Knowing what I do after years of study, I find this premise unfounded and frankly, gimmicky. Not impressed.

I little disappointed on the content

I enjoyed the Plant Paradox very much but the Longevity Paradox was a bit of a let down. I would say that 80% of the information in this book is just the same information from the Plant Paradox. I am a true believer of the Plant Paradox program and have been feeling great!

I loved hearing Dr. Gundry present his own work.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Gundry. He has truly changed my life. I would recommend this book to anyone of any age. I have been following Dr. Gundry for a year and Longevity Paradox is surely a cherry on top.

Open your mind and get blown away

If you are willing to open your mind, there is so much to learn from the latest research and experience of Dr Gundry. I enjoyed learning new ideas like brain washing and have also started doing a new five minute exercise routine. I’m already seeing benefits such as more energy, less brain fog and more motivation to accomplish tasks on my to-do list. Thank you Dr Gundry once again for your commitment to optimal health and longevity and for being willing to share your knowledge with us.

You are what your gut bacteria eats

Great read that seems to support rather than contradict other current nutritional information. No magic potions here.

First red flag-- profiting off of the issue

This was such a painful book to get through. I originally picked it up after hearing Gundry on Impact Theory. I highly respect Tom Bilyeu so I was intrigued. First, the book is about seven times longer than it needs to be. He is always just about to get to the how, "but, first...". This goes on for hours. While I appreciate understanding the science behind the thinking, he needs to learn how to distill the information to be comprehensive to us laymen folk. It read like a medical encyclopedia -- near impossible to recall. Next, so much of the research has shoddy referencing. This is by far the most restrictive plan I've ever read, and it made me curious. I am always a bit concerned when being told to stay away from such a large amount of organic vegetation. Looking into his work and references more-- there is very little meat behind the words. Nothing published or peer-reviewed since 2004, nothing that actually demonstrates the same causation between lectin and disease. Nothing past anecdotal for the advocation of cutting out his "no" food. Lastly-- he makes so much of his money selling his own supplements online. This is a huge turn off. "YOU HAVE MAJOR PROBLEMs, TAKE THIS TO FIX IT". Overall the lack of science, severe restriction on foods, rambling at large, and multiple streams of revenue makes this a solid no for me.
