Is 100 really the new 60?
Absolutely! I learned this first-hand from the “Grande Dame” of Alternative Medicine, Dr. Hazel Parcells. When I first met Dr. Parcells, she was 84 years young with a schedule half her age. She was teaching 8 to 5, five days a week. She lived to the ripe old age of 106 with an incredibly sharp intellect and youthful spirit – all intact. On her 106th birthday, she famously wrote, “So many times I’m asked about the secret of my longevity. I can assure you that there are no secrets. There is only the understanding of nature and the everyday practice of nature’s laws.”
When I began writing Radical Longevity, I thought about the invaluable lessons I learned from Dr. Parcells. She taught me about the importance of not chasing symptoms, but looking at root causes as the underlying triggers of all disease. Over 40 years ago, she taught me to be aware of heavy metals and chemicals, many hiding in plain sight, that were sabotaging the foods we eat, the cookware we use and the environment around us. She was decades ahead of the curve when it came to recognizing and dealing with the insidious effects of radiation, mold, fungus, and yeast toxicity. All of these concerns are looked at through the lens of modern-day science. In the book, I dig deep into the latest research to offer the most practical and actionable
health and healing advice.
Dr. Parcells was often quoted as saying, “If you want to be healthy, you need to trade your wishbone for a backbone and get to work.” So, in that spirit, let’s get started!
