Here, we have a short description of the Longevity Program, as well as a number of hallmarks of the program. There is also a prerequisites section with certain criteria that must be met before one can enter the program. And, during the program, you will get to feel the strength in your movements again!
The Longevity Program is geared to adults between the ages of 25 and 65 who are within 10 per cent of their set point weight, which is the weight they had when they were 18 years of age and who have already completed the second program in the series, which is called the Disease Prevention Program, either Stream 1 or Stream 2.
The road to longevity lies in leading a lifestyle that is conducive to the development of an ageless body and an ageless mind. A long life full of vim, vigour, and vitality are yours for the taking! We deal with the root causes of joint inflexibility, muscle mass reduction, and bone density loss, as well as skin, brain, and nerve deterioration with age. Again, prevention is the key.
The Longevity Program prevents further degradation of these tissue structures and recovers the losses in the body by way of:

regaining lost muscle mass and bone density. At the same time we

The longevity program consists of following five phases:
Each phase is sub-divided into a number of modules. Each step within a module is dealt with in a fixed order. Some steps are handled concurrently, but we do not leave a module until all the steps have been completed, as necessary. This is the way to ensure optimum health and lasting longevity.
The following is a description of each phase of the Longevity Program:
Joints and Fascia Phase: The aim of this phase is to revisit the natural, whole foods way of eating for proper nourishment of your joints and connective tissue. New weight-bearing, aerobic activities are introduced to strengthen the joints and connective tissues. Stress reduction techniques and detoxification methods are also introduced.
Muscle and Bone Phase: Here, we revisit the natural, whole foods way of eating for proper nourishment of your muscles and bones. The goal is to regain lost muscle mass and bone density.
In addition, higher-intensity, weight-bearing aerobic activities and load-bearing, strength exercises are added to strengthen both your muscle and bone tissue. New stress reduction techniques and detoxification methods are introduced, as needed.
Skin, Hair, and Nails Phase: The purpose of this phase is to modify the natural, whole foods way of eating for nourishment of the skin in terms of the correct foods, fluids, and fortifiers, as needed. Proper hydration and essential fatty acid intake on a daily basis are keys to the preservation of the skin with age.
Furthermore, vitamin C and the amino acids lysine and proline from foods are the raw materials necessary for the production of collagen and elastin in the body. These proteins in turn maintain the structural integrity, elasticity, and softness of the skin. New stress reduction techniques and detoxification methods are introduced as well.
Brain and Nerves Phase: Here, we revisit the natural, whole foods way of eating, once again, to feed the brain with the correct foods, fluids, and fortifiers, as needed. To rebuild brain and nerve cells, proper nourishment is essential.
In addition, to maintain your brain and nervous system you need to exercise them on a regular basis. New stress reduction techniques and detoxification methods are introduced, where needed.
Maintenance Phase: The purpose of this phase is to reinforce and finalize the health and fitness routines that you added throughout the program. You will now be able to maintain both an ageless body and an ageless mind in the years to come. Your life will be one full of vitality, strength, and energy.
