NBSV 136: Vegan octogenarian authors and coaches Bob & Fran German on healthy, active aging

Aging, anti-aging, optimal aging, and a myriad of other terms: in a society where *everyone* is offering advice about aging, what really is the best way to do it? What are the non-negotiables? Bob and Fran German may have the answers.

Bob and Fran are healthy aging advocates, authors, and coaches. They’re both in their 80s, and they’re feeling better than ever. They have three children and four grandchildren, enjoyed successful careers, and traveled to more than 75 countries worldwide.

Along the way, they became human rights activists, martial artists, mediators and negotiators, students and teachers in the Buddhist tradition, public speakers, international volunteers, and still serve as advisers to a number of non-profit organizations, businesses, and individuals globally.

Bob and Fran hold a central principle of being one’s own health advocate, and we explore that concept [and more] in this episode!

Important topics and points you don't want to miss:

>> How a whole food plant-based diet can prevent and even reverse chronic disease

>> How combining a healthy eating regimen with other healthy lifestyle habits can extend longevity >> Bob and Fran’s travel to over 75 countries, their book, their anti-child-trafficking project, teaching Qigong in over 4 countries, and more!
