64. Reverse Aging By Yourself through Autophagy without Drugs with Oxford Healthspan’s Leslie Kenny Too Young To Be Old with Diane Gilman, The Queen of Jeans

    • Health & Fitness

Today Diane discovers autophagy, a process which helps the body repair itself and can slow down aging. 
Joined by Leslie Kenny, patient advocate and co-founder of Oxford Healthspan, they explore the concept of healthspan versus lifespan and how to live a healthy and long life. Healthspan is the idea of living long but also healthy, compared to just lifespan, where the focus is solely on longevity. Leslie and Diane discuss the need to redefine aging and share their frustrations at traditional medical establishments' reluctance to embrace cutting-edge approaches like red light therapy. 
Addressing Chronic DiseaseLeslie and Diane address the prevalence of chronic disease in later years and the urgency in addressing its root causes rather than merely masking the symptoms. Leslie emphasizes the significance of bringing the body back to homeostasis and restoring balance through natural means.
Unlocking the Power of AutophagyA key focus of the discussion is autophagy, the body's self-renewal process, and its crucial role in aging. Leslie explains how certain molecules, such as spermidine found in plants and food sources like Japanese food natto and pulses, can activate autophagy, promoting cell renewal and longevity.
Practical Steps to Enhance HealthspanLeslie shares tips on enhancing healthspan through diet, lifestyle, and supplementation. She talks about the benefits of an anti-inflammatory diet, with inflammation playing a huge role in disease and illness in the body. She recommends nutrients such as turmeric, spermidine and nobiletin to encourage autophagy in the body. For spermidine supplements Leslie says to avoid spermidine HCL or THCL as these have not been tested in humans yet and are synthesized. She recommends botanical spermidine.   
The Oxford Longevity Project Leslie talks about the project she founded, the Oxford Longevity Project. The goal of the project is to empower healthcare professionals with knowledge about alternative approaches to healthcare and longevity.
