Today's Zestology podcast looks at instant natural solutions for more energy. Stuff you can do now. And - fasicinatingly, runs natural anti-ageing clinics. Dr Salerno is an anti-ageing pioneer. He's a well known doctor on TV in the USA, known to viewers of CBS, Fox and a host of other channels.

I love his approach - to embrace the whole person – mind, body, and spirit – treating the entire person rather than just symptoms. An awesome approach that kind of embodies what we want to do with Zestology.

And check out the list of benefits he promises with his outlook - more energy, ideal weight, clear skin, greater memory, improved digestion, better sleep, less anxiety, and much more.

And there is more to Dr. Salerno. After the terrorist bombings of September 11, 2001, he served as the Medical Director for the World Trade Center Landfill, a position that earned him a commendation from then-mayor Rudy Giuliani. Furthermore, he was charged with monitoring the health of public workers assigned to manage the massive landfill, as much of the debris from the World Trade Center was riddled with airborne chemicals, heavy metals, and toxic buildup.

Zestology is all about living with energy, vitality and motivation, and today's show features one of the USA's leading doctors on natural solutions, anti-ageing and energy.

5 secrets of better sleep with leading sleep recovery coach Nick Littlehales #29

Sleep is one of the key elements of better energy, vitality and motivation. Time and again it’s come up on Zestology podcast as a really important element of feeling great and performing at your very best. But somehow getting good, deep sleep is easier said than done.

Nick Littlehales he is a leading figure in the field of sleep, especially with sports stars having worked with top football clubs, such as Manchester United, Chelsea, and Real Madrid, the England’s national side and a host of Olympians and tour de france winners.

The Guardian recently called him "The man who showed Cristiano Ronaldo how to sleep", and that's when I first heard about him. I now realise what a big deal he is in the world of sport, and sleep, so I'm chuffed he agreed to come on Zestology.

As the Guardian said, "Sleep coaches exist, although the only surprising thing about that is that it took so long for such a job to be taken seriously in the world of sport". 

FOOTNOTE: The night after I interviewed Nick Littlehales, I implemented just two of the changes he recommended, and - according to my jawbone wristband - I had the deepest night's sleep I've ever had (almost 4 hours 30 of deep sleep). 

Zestology is all about living with energy, vitality and motivation, and today's show features perhaps the top expert worldwide in the area of sleep and sport. Listen on for how he can help you.

Could you live to 1000? Would you want to?

Today's Zestology podcast guest makes some extraordinary claims. Cambridge scientist and researcher Dr. Aubrey de Grey argues that aging is merely a disease and a curable one too. He talks about a post-ageing world. Humans age in seven basic ways, he says, all of which can be reversed, eventually. He is a celebrated and controversial scientist and researcher, and he says the first person to live to 1000 might be alive already.

Amazing prospect. You could be 30,40,50 now and you could live to 150, or even 1000. Crazy, right? But that is what Aubrey De Grey is suggesting will happen.

His popular TED talk on the subject has had hundreds of thousands of views. He is definitely a maverick and controversial, and this is a must-listen Zestology.
