Mar 6 – Graceful Aging with Special Guest, Susi Roos, RN 10am-12pm CT Register Here
We used to think that aging well depended on the genes with which we were born and that we could credit or blame our parents for the way we experienced the aging process. Now we know that those inherited genes play a very small part in determining our physical and emotional health and vigor as age. Instead, many lifestyle factors, including diet, stress, sleep, toxic exposure, happiness and more actually have the ability to reprogram gene expression – something called epigenetics. Learn more about epigenetics, and how we can put it to work for us as we harness non-toxic solutions to create far more graceful aging.
