As I travel on this trail, I regularly come across new tidbits of research, stories, and songs that make life a fascinating landscape of discovery and charm. Most recently, I came across a few new ideas around longevity, health, and living disease-free.
Michael Mosley, a British medical journalist, has spent years looking for ways to live healthy without making many changes to his diet or lifestyle. In this BBC Horizon program entitled: “Eat, Fast and Live Longer”, Mosley discovers the extraordinary health benefits of the ancient tradition of fasting. He even suggests ways to fast without fasting for days on end. He recommends some very doable methods for reducing your waistline and achieving disease-beating health goals!!

Here is some new research that got me really thinking: “fecal transplants”. It is as it sounds – delivery of healthy fecal matter to ailing, out of balance bodies in order to restore microbial balance for health. This TED talk by Jonathan Eisen entitled “Meet Your Microbes” illuminates the need to recognize our bodies as a community of microbes. Elsen believes that medicine and health should be approached from a place of relating to microbes as “us” and not “them”. Fascinating.
