A Sneak Peek Into What Dr. Gladden Is Working On – Episode 128

On this podcast, Dr. Jeffery Gladden talks about a trial that will start as a possible first trial to show that aging can be reversed. The name of this trial is Life Energy Resilience and Antifragility Trial (LIFE-RAFT). He talks about how life energy is the basis for optimizing performance and longevity. Focusing on things in the life energy cycle like having a growth mindset, optimizing mental health, feeling loved, optimizing relational health, optimizing spiritual health, optimizing wisdom, and feeling safe is an excellent foundation to build on. He also talks about how human resilience is exponentially reduced over time and the meaning of anti-fragility.
