As a gerontologist, I keep up with the latest breakthroughs and the best scientific research on aging. I share this information to help you be the healthiest, most vibrant person you can be at any age, but especially at mid-life and beyond. Gerontology provides a whole-body approach to life-enhancing improvements without drugs. This website focuses on proven practices with the goal of helping you slow the impact of aging on your body and your brain— both the physical brain and its cognitive functions. Let’s work together to up your happiness quotient and bring more joy into your life.

First of all, ask yourself, “What am I doing that is more important than taking care of myself?” Even if life’s demands in the past have left you little time for yourself, my articles can help make your personal health and happiness a top priority. Through evolving opportunities, including online courses, you can access ways to sharpen your mind, invigorate your body, renew your spirit, and have some fun doing it. I offer you physical and mental exercises from the most promising research available, which improve and build brain power, cognition, and memory. You can explore the latest findings, including data on supplements that could reduce your risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s. You will also learn how exercise and proper diet transport your body to a higher level of health. I want you to see the glass as more than half full, to be happier and more joyful in this time of your life. If there are topics you are considering, or are afraid to ask about, I will endeavor to discuss those as well.

We are all “works in progress.” It’s never too late to begin. The results you experience can be astounding. Our bodies have the miraculous capacity for regeneration and a powerful desire for health.

Join me and embrace aging vibrantly!

Age is no barrier. It’s a limitation you put on your mind.
