About the author

Physician, author and award-winning television host Dr. David A. Lipschitz leads the nation with innovative approaches to growing older, focusing on health maintenance and disease prevention.

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, Dr. David received an M.D. and Ph.D from the University of Witwaterstrand before immigrating to the United States in 1972. 

Upon arriving in America, Dr. David trained as a hematologist at the University of Washington in Seattle. After three years at the University of Kansas Medical School, he joined the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) as director of the Division of Hematology/Oncology.

In Little Rock, Dr. David began research on the effects of aging on nutrition and on blood and bone marrow. He has received long-standing grant support from the National Institute on Aging and is recognized as one of the premier experts in this field. Dr. David’s research interest in aging led to an ever-increasing focus on the unique medical needs of older people. In 1995, he assumed the position of director of the Center on Aging at UAMS. Under his leadership, UAMS received a gift of $30.2 million from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation to establish the Donald W. Reynolds Department of Geriatrics and to build a facility to house the new program. This department is the second of its kind in the nation.

Well-respected in the medical community, Dr. David has served as chair of the Research Committee of the American Geriatrics Society and chair of the Association of Directors of Geriatric Academic Programs. He has also been consistently listed in “Best Doctors in America,” a publication of the one percent of the American physicians recognized by their peers as the best in their field. As an expert in the field of nutrition and aging, he has been featured on the Today Show, discussing aspects of vitamins and mineral use in older people.

Dr. David is one of the most recognized geriatricians in the nation. In collaboration with Arkansas Education Television Network (AETN), he has completed a 26-part TV series entitled Aging Successfully with Dr. David. The program has received two Auroras, two Tellys, a Videographer Award, a Cine award for excellence in Television, and has on two occasions been a finalist for a Freddie award. 

Dr. David was recently awarded the Arkansas Cultural Enrichment (ACE) award for his Aging Successfully series and his leadership in geriatric care. Dr. David is widely sought after as a speaker because of his obvious warmth, enthusiasm, humor and extremely positive and upbeat message. He has a unique ability to explain health issues to a general audience, giving lectures that promote self-esteem and emphasize that it is never too early or too late to pay attention to your health. The series has aired in virtually every PBS market nationally.

In October 2002, his book entitled “Breaking the Rules of Aging” was published by Lifeline press. Of this book, Dr. Robert Butler, first director of the National Institute on Aging, wrote, “’Breaking the Rules of Aging’ provides readers with all the information they need to enjoy a healthy and vigorous future. Dr. David is the Dr. Spock of aging and a must-read.” Additionally, Dr. David is a weekly columnist for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette and makes monthly appearances on Good Morning, Arkansas.

Join Billy Graham as he shares the challenges of fading strength but still standing strong in his commitment to finishing life well.

Growing old has been the greatest surprise of my life,” said Billy Graham, known by many as God’s Ambassador. “I would have never guessed what God had in store for me, and I know that as I am nearing home, He will not forsake me the last mile of the way.”

Nearing Home, written by Billy Graham in his nineties, explores the challenges of aging while gleaning foundational truths from Scripture. Billy Graham invites us to journey with him as he considers the golden years while anticipating the hope of being reunited with his wife, Ruth, in his heavenly home that eclipses this world. “When granted many years of life, growing old in age is natural, but growing old with grace is a choice,” said the author. “Growing older with grace is possible for all who will set their hearts and minds on the Giver of grace, the Lord Jesus Christ.”

But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. —Acts 20:24 (ESV)

“Explore with me not only the realities of life as we grow older but also the hope and fulfillment and even joy that can be ours once we learn to look at these years from God’s point of view and discover His strength to sustain us every day.” —BILLY GRAHAM

Turn back your biological clock. A breakthrough book for men--as much fun to read as it is persuasive--Younger Next Year draws on the very latest science of aging to show how men 50 or older can become functionally younger every year for the next five to ten years, and continue to live like fifty-year-olds until well into their eighties. To enjoy life and be stronger, healthier, and more alert. To stave off 70% of the normal decay associated with aging (weakness, sore joints, apathy), and to eliminate over 50% of all illness and potential injuries. This is the real thing, a program that will work for anyone who decides to apply himself to "Harry's Rules."

Harry is Henry S. Lodge, M.D., a specialist in internal medicine and preventive healthcare. Chris Crowley is Harry's 70-year-old patient who's stronger today (and skiing better) than when he was 40. Together, in alternating chapters that are lively, sometimes outspoken, and always utterly convincing, they spell out Harry's Rules and the science behind them. The rules are deceptively simple: Exercise Six Days a Week. Eat What You Know You Should. Connect to Other People and Commit to Feeling Passionate About Something. The science, simplified and demystified, ranges from the molecular biology of growth and decay to how our bodies and minds evolved (and why they fare so poorly in our sedentary, all-feast no-famine culture). The result is nothing less than a paradigm shift in our view of aging.

Welcome to the next third of your life--train for it, and you'll have a ball.

The revolutionary book coauthored by the Nobel Prize winner who discovered telomerase and telomeres' role in the aging process and the health psychologist who has done original research into how specific lifestyle and psychological habits can protect telomeres, slowing disease and improving life.

Have you wondered why some sixty-year-olds look and feel like forty-year-olds and why some forty-year-olds look and feel like sixty-year-olds? While many factors contribute to aging and illness, Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn discovered a biological indicator called telomerase, the enzyme that replenishes telomeres, which protect our genetic heritage. Dr. Blackburn and Dr. Elissa Epel's research shows that the length and health of one's telomeres are a biological underpinning of the long-hypothesized mind-body connection. They and other scientists have found that changes we can make to our daily habits can protect our telomeres and increase our health spans (the number of years we remain healthy, active, and disease-free).

THE TELOMERE EFFECT reveals how Blackburn and Epel's findings, together with research from colleagues around the world, cumulatively show that sleep quality, exercise, aspects of diet, and even certain chemicals profoundly affect our telomeres, and that chronic stress, negative thoughts, strained relationships, and even the wrong neighborhoods can eat away at them.

Drawing from this scientific body of knowledge, they share lists of foods and suggest amounts and types of exercise that are healthy for our telomeres, mind tricks you can use to protect yourself from stress, and information about how to protect your children against developing shorter telomeres, from pregnancy through adolescence. And they describe how we can improve our health spans at the community level, with neighborhoods characterized by trust, green spaces, and safe streets.

THE TELOMERE EFFECT will make you reassess how you live your life on a day-to-day basis. It is the first book to explain how we age at a cellular level and how we can make simple changes to keep our chromosomes and cells healthy, allowing us to stay disease-free longer and live more vital and meaningful lives.
Can you really feel better as you get older?

Is aging without illness possible?

Is your own internal fountain of youth waiting to be discovered?

Yes, yes, and YES! says Suzanne Somers, the bestselling author of The Sexy Years. It can all be true when you take advantage of the science of antiaging medicine—a revolutionary approach to achieving the ageless life.

Suzanne Somers has already introduced millions of women to bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and changed the way we look at menopause. Now, in Ageless, Suzanne introduces an inspiring, medically validated approach to reversing the aging process and maintaining a healthy, vibrant, mentally sharp, sexually active life—while building the body’s natural defenses against age-related diseases. Suzanne talks about:

• How antiaging medicine can help detox the body of harmful pollutants and chemicals and strengthen our weakest glands and organs

• The dangers of perimenopause and how women can treat it

• Why so many hysterectomies are unnecessary, how birth control pills may have contributed to the rise of hysterectomies, and how to restore your body to perfect hormonal balance after having one

• How andropause is a real condition for men, and how men can lose weight, regain their youthful physiques, and restore heath, energy, and sexuality, all through bioidentical HRT

• The importance of sleep and the healing work that nature does during this time to balance hormones and increase energy

In this “antiaging bible,” Suzanne brings together prominent, Western-trained antiaging doctors to show how the traditional medical approach is woefully inadequate. Its standard of care has been to treat all symptoms with drugs, but in Ageless you will find out how this approach does not make us better. With antiaging medicine you can heal your body rather than keep a chronic condition at bay with drugs. Ageless shows you how to keep your “insides” young, and how this manifests on the outside.
