About Todd Ewing PhD
Todd Ewing, PhD, cares passionately about treating diseases by any means necessary. For the past 20 years, he has dedicated his career to discovering medicines to ease suffering from cancer, inflammation, muscle wasting, pain, and attention disorder. At the same time, he has dedicated his personal life to discovering the healthiest possible lifestyle to minimize the risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer’s. He has struggled with the perception that lifestyles appear to be getting less healthy, the planet seems to be getting more polluted, and people seem to be aging more quickly. He hopes his writing can help reverse all these trends by helping people see how their daily health choices add up and influence the destiny of the environment and their health.
Todd Ewing, PhD studied Biology and Chemical Engineering at Stanford University and the University of Washington. He received his doctorate in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the University of California San Francisco in 1997. He currently resides in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Unlike a traditional "How to" health guide, Biological Youth focuses on the changes we must make in our minds as well as our bodies. It begins with a strategy to visualize the five essential parts of total fitness: metabolic, circadian, microbial, immune, and mental fitness. It explains the essential and interconnected nature of the five parts based on the latest research on biological aging and Alzheimer's disease. And, it explains how the five parts of fitness influence the process of aging in our tissues, how they preserve youth-promoting stem cells, and how they prevent age-promoting senescent cells.
The Total Recovery Series of books is unlike any traditional "How to" health series. It encourages a new way to think about health with a provocative mix of insight, imagination, visualization, and humor.
- It reveals the scientific discoveries that lead us toward the recovery of our total fitness and biological youth. And, it reveals the marketing and political forces that lead us astray.
- It explores how insects in the natural world become controlled by parasites like zombies, how our minds are similarly vulnerable to sophisticated advertising by marketers, and how mindfulness helps us resist the unhealthy behaviors being promoted to us.
- And, it presents a fresh take on a plant-based Paleolithic lifestyle with the expression, "Train like a hunter, but eat like a gatherer."
