The Model Health Show

Getting older is a natural part of the human lifespan. But getting older does not have to include common aging-related illnesses like neurodegenerative diseases, cardiovascular events, or osteoporosis. The key to feeling younger, stronger, and healthier lies in the choices we make every day, like our diet, movement practices, and our connection to others.

Dr. Mark Hyman is one of the most influential voices in the field of functional medicine and a proponent for eating for health and longevity.
