    Getting a full night's sleep

    Getting a full night's sleep

    Do you have a problem sleeping? The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says insufficient sleep is a public health problem linked to chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart problems, obesity, and depression. The implications for human longevity are obvious. 
    So what can be done to get a better night's sleep - even if you think you've tried everything?
    The Silicon Valley startup, Koko Labs, has developed Full Sleep, a six-week program guided by artificial intelligence (A.I.), using a non-wearable bedside tracker and the tried and tested sleep improvement technique, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I). In this episode we meet Koko's Chief Product Officer, Rosaria Mannino, and A.I. guru Luca Rigazio, to learn more about this pioneering technology.

    A Life Well Lived

    A Life Well Lived

    As the world mourns the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, the Live Long and Master Aging podcast extends its deepest sympathies to members of the Royal Family and everyone who loved and respected the UK's longest-serving monarch.
    We want to pay our respects to the Queen in this, the 200th episode of LLAMA. She devoted her life to public service and, as King Charles noted, it was "a life well lived" - a phrase that resonates with the values and goals of our podcast. It accurately reflects the selfless life of Queen Elizabeth, but could also be applied to many members of our own families and close friends. 
    In 2018 Peter Bowes interviewed Sky Bergman, a professor of photography and video, about her film, Lives Well Lived. It features the stories of forty people who share their experiences, wit and wisdom, with remarkable candor.   
    In honour of Queen Elizabeth and every soul who has enjoyed a life well lived, we are republishing Peter's conversation with Sky. It is both inspiring and sobering, with honest reflections on the aging process.

    Nate Wilkins: Living an ageless lifestyle

    Nate Wilkins: Living an ageless lifestyle

    Nate Wilkins is enjoying a remarkable journey through life.  The 68-year-old functional aging specialist is the co-founder of Ageless Workout, a Miami-based health, healing and wellness company that seeks to bridge the gap between fitness and medicine.  The goal is to help people of all ages achieve their maximum potential. It is based on a lifestyle that Nate and his partner, Shebah Carfagna, have adopted to create a "tribe mentality" to health and fitness.  They are also co-authors of Ageless Workout. 

    In this interview Nate reflects on the highs - and lows - in his life - including a "brush with greatness" when he met Martin Luther King Jr. on the day he was baptized. He condemns ageist attitudes that depict older people as "decrepit" and enthuses about the joys of a full life, focussed on movement, positivity and purpose.

    Bjørn Ekeberg: Targeted red light therapy to support recovery

    Bjørn Ekeberg: Targeted red light therapy to support recovery

    Red light therapy is a popular treatment for skin health, muscle strength and even sleep quality. It involves exposing the body to low levels of red or near-infrared light.  Considered safe, it is a form of therapy that is usually offered in a health practitioners' office or wellness center.  The technology is also available for use at home.  The Norwegian company, Recharge Health, has developed a device called FlexBeam, a non-pharmaceutical, non-invasive tool that uses targeted red light therapy to support recovery.  In this interview, the company's co-founder, Bjørn Ekeberg, discusses the use of red light as a therapeutic intervention and explains how FlexBeam works.
