About this course:
The modern industrial world has brought with it a drastic change in our lighting environment. Bright LED screens and overhead lighting are now part of nearly everyone’s life and few people are asking how this technology impacts chronic disease. In this course, we will discuss the role circadian rhythms play in health and the pathophysiology of a variety of chronic disease states. You’ll learn how the light/dark cycle impacts physiological pathways, why circadian biology should be included in every patient evaluation, and why the Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded for research on this very topic in 2017.
Included: special 35-min “editor’s cut” of the 9-part series “The Human Longevity Project”!
The Human Longevity Project takes you on an exciting journey around the globe, on a mission to discover the secrets of the longest-lived and healthiest populations on Earth.
Filmed over 2 years, in over 50 locations, in 9 countries, on 3 continents, this film covers the key lifestyle, environmental, and physiological components to prevent chronic disease, increase health span, and put the brakes on aging in our modern world.
We interviewed premier scientists, physicians, healers, and health experts. We examined the daily routines and lifestyle practices ranging from preconception to geriatrics, with more observational and scientific scrutiny than ever before. You’ll learn the scientifically validated recipe of a long, healthy life – and how to apply these lessons in our modern environment.
