by | Jan 6, 2020 | 2 comments

Aging is often thought of as a losing battle but it doesn’t have to be.

On this episode of the Dr. Gundry Podcast, I speak with actress, author, and health spokesperson Suzanne Somers.

As 73 years young, Suzanne — who you probably remember from Three’s Company, Step by Step, and other television series defies virtually every stereotype about getting older.

In her latest book, A New Way to Age, she shares her insights on how to live a healthy, happy life — no matter how old you are.

Stay tuned to hear us discuss how to stop aging like your parents, and start aging with energy, vibrancy, confidence… and even a strong libido!
