Did you know that the human potential
for longevity is much longer than the
typical 70 year or so average? According
to some research, humans have the potential
to leave 150 years.
Recently, I have conducted a short
interview with Wayne Gendel, a life
extension specialist who will be doing
Extension Secrets Program with me
You call yourself a “Life
Extension Specialist”, what is
A Life Extension Specialist studies
all aspects and lifestyle factors relating
to a human living to their maximum age
I actually give two people credit for
that title. First is Paul Bragg, who
was the first author I read on health.
He called himself that and since he
died at 92 surfing, I feel he is qualified
to use that title!
Second is Dr. Roy Walford. He has done
the only study confirming that he can
extend the lifespan of animals with
CR (Calorie Reduced) diet. He has given
great credibility to the possibility
of humans living beyond 170 years of
Tell us one thing you think would surprise
people about life extension.
Living long is actually the result of
many factors. What is so exciting is
that we have in my opinion almost total
control how long we can live!
I have heard of people living over 200
years of age. I look at Jack Lalane
who is over 90 and likely the strongest
person in the world for his age. He
was setting records.
What's the best way to have beautiful,
healthy looking skin with few or no
Without a doubt, these 5 things are
1. Eliminate Table SALT! It might
be okay to have a little Celtic or Himalayan
salt 1-2 times a week, but not more.
All salt draws moisture from the body.
Not only does it constipate us, cause
irritation because it is so acidic.
1 ounce of sodium chloride, which I
refer to as synthetic salt, retains
1 pound of water in the human body!
2. Consume at 80% of fruits and veggies
in your diet. Its absolute magic!
The natural balance of minerals in fruits
and veggies helps to flush old toxic
acidic buildup from our tissues and
make your skin buttery soft.
3. Eat healthy raw fats and avoid
trans and cooked fats. You can tell
when someone eats fried or trans fat
foods. Those people that have deep pores
or crater like pot marks in their facial
4. Eat plenty of beta-carotene in
dark leafy greens. My skin feels
like when I was 20 years old. Super
buttery soft! Even my feet are soft...
Eat plenty of mineral rich dark greens!
5. Dry skin brush. Use a vegetable
bristle brush. Takes 5 minutes 5-6x
a week, first thing in the morning.
Hundreds of my women clients say they
no longer use moisturizer on their body
after skin brushing only 1 week! And
never use it again.
here to read about all the incredible
benefits from dry skin brushing.
Here is a great skin test to see
if your skin is still youthful.
- Lay one hand flat on a table.
- With the other hand lightly pinch
the skin and pull the skin straight
up on the back of the hand lying flat.
- If your skin is not youthful it will
slowly go back and look wrinkled. If
your skin is youthful it will go right
back like an elastic band.
What's the best way to avoid degenerative
Keep your body alkaline and acid balanced!
The factors that keep your body alkaline
balanced can range from diet to emotions
to environmental conditions.
We will cover them in depth in Life
What is one thing that can help people
live long, healthy lives?
Number one is a healthy diet. When
you eat healthier, your mood, spirituality
even your compassion for yourself and
others changes. It is magical how fast
the human body responds!
The 3 most common health conditions
2. Over acidity and
3. Blood sugar imbalance
I would say this leads to people being
irritable, anger and having aches and
Just look at people walking down the
How many are smiling? How many looked
so stressed and unhappy?
Well after a short period of time on
a healthier diet, the blood sugar is
more balanced and the bowels move properly.
Well hello smiles!
There is more of course that I will
share in the upcoming teleconference.
Give us 5 quick tips about life extension
1. Avoid overeating.
2. Eat at least 80% fresh raw ripe
3. Remain positive about life! Never
let people or governments or any challenges
in life beat you. There is one word
that is a major common factor in the
longest-lived healthiest people regarding
this important element in living long
and healthy. We will share this in the
Life Extension teleconference.
“Its not how far you fall, its
how high you bounce!”
4. Get plenty of rest. Our bodies can
handle stress it just cannot handle
infinite amounts of chronic dis-stress!
5. Get 20 minutes minimum daily of
fresh air and sunshine
What's another thing we can do right
now to look younger?
Besides diet, I also would like to mention
one other very important point.
Find your dharma (life purpose) and
When you have purpose in your life to
share your gift, then you have a goal
of a lifelong purpose.
I think most people are stressed some
much living a life they are not truly
happy living. Unhappy jobs. Excess stress.
Little exercise. Getting caught up in
society instead of following their heart.
In certain long-lived cultures the eldest
are greatly respected. They are looked
upon for guidance and direction. This
could be one major reason why they live
so much longer. They are felt and truly
needed and respected.
One of the Ten Commandments says “Thou
shall honor thy father and thy mother.”
My interpretation of life is growth.
When we stop growing, we stop living.
Always strive to learn and grow and
