Description

Ever wonder what the real impact of chronic stress is on our bodies and our longevity - on the cellular level? Dr. Elissa Epel, a professor at UCSF, studies how stress can impact our biological aging via the telomere/telomerase system, and how meditation modalities may buffer stress effects and boost physical and spiritual well-being. Also the co-author of New York Times best-seller, “The Telomere Effect,” Dr. Elissa joins Dave to discuss what developing healthy lifestyle habits and stress resistance does for your mitochondria, as well as the length of your telomeres. In this fascinating conversation, Dr. Elissa explains what telomeres are, how their length can be an indicator of health and aging issues, and reveals the lifestyle practices that can help strengthen them. You’ll learn about some incredible new research on gratitude (how a positive attitude can impact your mitochondria and your telomeres), the role of epigenetics in this equation, and whether all of Dave’s biohacking is actually helping or hurting his longevity. Don’t miss this super-interesting episode about hacking our telomeres to live longer!
