Editorial Reviews

Review

“In The Longevity Paradox, Dr. Steven Gundry translates the complex science of aging into a clear, actionable plan.  If you want to live longer and healthier, this is the best book on the subject.” -- Dale Bredesen, MD, New York Times bestselling author of The End of Alzheimer’s

“In The Longevity Paradox, Dr. Steven Gundry upends many long-held beliefs about aging, debunking common misconceptions and making the provocative yet persuasive argument that the length and quality of our lives is a function of the health of our microbiome. Practical, informative, and hopeful, this book will change the way you think about aging.” -- Mark Hyman, MD, Director, Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine and #1 New York Times best-selling author of Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?

The Longevity Paradox offers a fresh perspective on an existential question: how can we live a long life and grow old while still enjoying the physical and mental qualities of being young? What Dr. Gundry shows us is not only that it’s possible to thrive as we age, but that the power to do it lies in our own hands (or, more accurately, our guts). It’s an essential read for anybody who’s growing older – which is to say, everybody.” -- Arianna Huffington, Founder & CEO, Thrive 

“In his latest, readers will find Dr. Gundry’s  friendly demeanor, sound advice, and compassionate motivational techniques unchanged as he takes a closer look at the aging process and examines a variety of ways to mitigate the damage done to the body across a lifetime. A proactive, manageable, and practical approach to stemming the aging tide.” -- Kirkus Reviews

The Longevity Paradox is a well-written, entertaining tour of your generally friendly neighborhood microbiome that will help you learn to live younger and longer.” --  Dr. Oz

“We’re often told that future scientific research will provide an elixir that will not only allow us to live longer, but live healthier as well.  But as Dr. Gundry deftly reveals in The Longevity Paradox, we have those tools in hand, right now, that can open the door to a longer and healthier life experience.  This highly empowering text leverages leading-edge research and provides a user-friendly interface enhancing and extending our precious existence.” -- David Perlmutter, MD, author of New York Times bestseller Grain Brain and Brain Maker

“Dr. Gundry has already helped many of the millions of people who are suffering from inflammatory disorders. Now, in The Longevity Paradox, he shows readers how to fend off the inflammation that contributes to disease and decline with age.” -- Valter Longo, PhD, Director of the Longevity Institute, USC, and bestselling author of The Longevity Diet

From the Back Cover

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Plant Paradox comes a cutting-edge plan for living a long, healthy, happy life.

World-renowned cardiac surgeon Dr. Steven Gundry knows all too well that everyone thinks they want to live forever—until they hit middle age and witness the suffering of their parents and even their peers. How do we resolve the paradox of wanting to live to a ripe old age—while continuing to enjoy the benefits of youth?

This groundbreaking book 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 by-product of the way we have lived our lives. 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 microbes—the bacteria that make up the microbiome—largely determine our health over the years. These bugs are in the driver’s seat, playing a role in everything from our weight and the appearance of our skin to whether we develop common ailments like arthritis or more serious diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s.

The good news is, it’s never too late to support these microbes and give them what they need so that they—and you—can thrive. In The Longevity Paradox, Dr. Gundry outlines a lifestyle plan to improve gut health and help you keep you brimming with vitality for decades to come. With actionable advice on everything from diet to cognitive health to skin care to fitness, he arms readers with the tools to prevent and reverse disease as well as simple hacks anyone can use to look and feel younger. A progressive take on the new science of aging, The Longevity Paradox uncovers the secrets to living a happy, healthy, long, and vital life.
