Hello and welcome to
Prime Time Living
The official newsletter of The Essential Boomer
My most important podcast to date is finally published!
And… The companion FREE PDF –
I hope you are having a great spring so far.
I know this edition of Prime Time Living is conspicuously late. I must apologize. But, I have been spending all of my time researching, writing, and then producing my latest podcast, Heads Up Baby Boomers! This is the Wake Up Call That Could Save Your Life!
If any of you knows how to clone oneself then please, let me know.
There was so much information that I had to research that it took me weeks beyond my due date to finally get it published. I hope that you find value in it!
My next big podcast will be all about extended fasting. I’m sure that you’ve been hearing a lot about it. The potential benefits for both health extension AND the safe, effective, treatments for serious conditions such as cancer and diabetes is very exciting.
I will be focusing on the particulars of doing a 5-day fast using the FASTING MIMICKING DIET, (FMD). This is the basis of research from Valter Longo, PhD. He is a biochemist and professor of gerontology and biological sciences at the University of Southern California (USC).
CLICK HERE to watch OR listen to the interview that Rhonda Patrick PhD, did with him last year. It’s very good.
If you are interested in getting in on the fast-track for more information on this OR if you’d like to join me on a 5-day fasting challenge, using the FMD, then please sign up below.
I hope that you enjoy this edition of Prime Time Living. As usual, it’s packed with many articles providing you the latest news and information on how to extend your health span as well as the treatment and prevention of the diseases associated with aging.
I’d love to get your feedback so I invite you to email me with your questions, comments, critiques and suggestions.

Dr. Matthew Walker on Sleep for Enhancing Learning, Creativity, Immunity, and Glymphatic System
Matthew Walker, Ph.D., is a professor of neuroscience and psychology at the University of California, Berkeley, and serves as the Director of the Center for Human Sleep Science. Formerly, Dr. Walker served as a professor of psychiatry at the Harvard Medical School.
Walker’s research examines the impact of sleep on human health and disease. One area of interest focuses on identifying “vulnerability windows” during a person’s life that make them more susceptible to amyloid-beta deposition from loss of slow wave sleep and, subsequently, Alzheimer’s disease later in life.
Dr. Walker earned his undergraduate degree in neuroscience from the University of Nottingham, UK, and his Ph.D. in neurophysiology from the Medical Research Council, London, UK. He is the author of the New York Times best-selling book Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams.

More older people with depression could benefit from non-drug treatments
Depression is common in older age and with an ageing population how late-life depression is managed will become increasingly important. Researchers from the University of Bristol and University College London (UCL) suggest mental health in later life should be given greater priority by healthcare professionals.

Study helps solve mystery of how sleep protects against heart disease
Researchers say they are closer to solving the mystery of how a good night’s sleep protects against heart disease. In studies using mice, they discovered a previously unknown mechanism between the brain, bone marrow, and blood vessels that appears to protect against the development of atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries — but only when sleep is healthy and sound. The study, funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), part of the National Institutes of Health, will appear in the journal Nature.Posted February 18, 2019
Taking Sleep to Heart
Getting enough sleep is key to good health, and studies have shown that insufficient sleep increases the risk of serious problems, including cardiovascular disease.
