Episode Description

Remember when turning 40 was considered being “over the hill” marked by a symbolic tombstone engraved “RIP” on top of a birthday cake? Today, turning 40 is more synonymous with “running up a hill” especially for women in this age bracket who tend to be at their peak of busyness. Surveys and census data show more women over the age of 40 are starting families, getting married (for the first or second time) and are at the pinnacle of their careers. But could running at such a fast pace at this age lead to fatal mistakes when it comes to your health and longevity? Natural health expert, Dr. Christine Horner, author of “Radiant Health, Ageless Beauty” says there isn’t just one cause of aging, but rather many factors that simultaneously contribute to the overall aging process, however she says the silver lining is that we all have tremendous influence on our own health and longevity, no matter what the genetic lottery has dealt or how bad your health habits were in your 20s and 30s.
