In This Episode, Dr. Mark Hyman And I Discuss His New book, Young Forever.
Imagine if it were possible to maintain physical fitness, mental sharpness, and overall health well into your 80s, 90s, 100s, and beyond without experiencing the degeneration and illnesses commonly associated with “normal” aging. Recent breakthroughs in longevity science suggest that this is now achievable.
According to my guest Dr. Mark Hyman, a renowned physician and #1 NY Times bestselling author, aging should not be viewed as an inevitable fate but rather as a condition that can be prevented, slowed down, and even reversed. Although it is impossible to turn back the clock, it is possible to turn back the biological clock. In other words, aging is not inevitable.
In his latest book, “Young Forever: The Secrets to Living Your Longest, Healthiest Life,” Dr. Hyman presents cutting-edge research and practical advice on how to extend your health span, thereby adding more happy, disease-free years to your life. Moreover, you do not need to be extremely wealthy or have access to advanced medical facilities to reap the benefits.
In this episode of Passion Struck, you will discover the following:
- Why our bodies deteriorate and how to reverse the process.
- The core tenets of longevity science
- How epigenetics and the epigenome impact the aging process

More From My Interview With Dr. Mark Hyman
During our interview, I asked Dr. Hyman what a day in the life of Dr. Mark Hyman looks like when it comes to your longevity.
Dr. Mark Hyman explains, “I think that every day is a little bit different. But I try to include a lot of different practices that help with my overall well-being and health. So obviously, food is a big part of it. And I think that’s a key foundation of my health exercise, certain supplements, certain practices that I do.
For example, on an average day, after I wake up, I’ll meditate for 20 minutes to reset my nervous system. Or if I don’t do it in the morning, I might do it in the afternoon. I’ll do a workout for usually 30 minutes, high-intensity resistance band training, which is strength training, then I’ll take a steam shower. I have a steam at home, jump in my bathtub packed with ice, which I like, but maybe not ice in it, but I’ll put on ice cold, which is about 40 Something degrees, I’ll soak in that. So that would be a hormesis hormetic stressor that stresses my body into healing repair.
Then I’ll have my healthy aging shake, which I talked about in the book, which essentially is generally creatine, dendritic mushrooms and some pomegranate extract, and a bunch of things that, from the research, really help to optimize my health and well-being and boosts my longevity. And then that sort of sets my foundation for the day. And then when I eat a generally very plant-rich diet, lots of phytochemicals, lots of good fat. I make sure I get enough protein throughout the day.
And then I try to get a good eight hours of sleep every night, wind down at night, get off a blue light at night, and do really simple practices. And I have a whole schedule of what I do every day, the things I like to include, and sometimes other kinds of experimental stuff like exosomes, peptides, plasmapheresis, or fun stuff. But those are generally not available to most people. I’m just I can get them because I’m a doctor and do fun stuff.”
