Episode 26: The western lifestyle that actually works (Part 2, Dinner with the Doctor, January 2019)

In our previous episode, we learned about the Okinawan health advantage and how the influx of western food and lifestyle patterns have virtually erased it. But there is a western lifestyle that parallels the health benefits of the traditional Okinawan one. That's right: a way of living among North Americans that promotes tremendous longevity right here in the land of fast food, sedentariness and social isolation. We find it among the Seventh-day Adventists. Who are these people and what are they doing that the rest of us are not? Listen in to find out.

This is Part 2 of a health talk presented at a Dinner with the Doctor event hosted by Pathways to Wholeness Lifestyle Medicine in Toronto. Dinner with the Doctor is a community event featuring delicious plant-based food and a health talk by doctors on lifestyle medicine.

Episode 25: The Okinawan health advantage and how they lost it (Part 1 of Can I live to 100?)

Okinawans have been one of the longest living people groups in the world. They have one of the highest numbers of centenarians and live very independent and functional lives well into their 80s, 90s and even 100s. Sadly, newer generations of Okinawans do not enjoy this same same vibrant health as their older counterparts. Why is that? What happened? And what lessons can we learn about how to live to 100 in North America?

This is Part 1 of a health talk presented at a Dinner with the Doctor event hosted by Pathways to Wholeness Lifestyle Medicine at the Toronto Japanese Seventh-day Adventist Church in Toronto. Dinner with the Doctor is a community event featuring delicious plant-based food and a health talk by doctors on lifestyle medicine.
