Is your lifestyle making you look younger or older than you really are? Are your exercises habits extending or shortening your life? Are you as healthy as a person your age should be?
The RealAge test can help answer these questions, and now, it’s more accurate than ever. Based on a huge review of all the latest medical and scientific findings, the new RealAge test reflects the state of the art. It turns out that the flossing, having a pet and holding a grudge can all affect your health.
“The team behind the complex effort to rework the RealAge Test, considered the gold standard of wellness self-assessment, was led by Keith Roach, MD, chief medical officer for RealAge, and included the creator of the original RealAge Test, Michael Roizen, MD,” the company announced in a press release. “The new test incorporates major research findings from the most important medical, nutritional and fitness studies conducted in recent years by influential institutions such as the Centers for Disease Control, the U.S. census, the National Center for Health Statistics, and more.”
Are you a picture of health? Many Americans these days think they are healthier than they really are, according to a recent survey by GE and the Cleveland Clinic. I had a chance to chat with acclaimed physician, author, and “Real Age” expert Dr. Michael Roizen. He is the Chief Wellness Officer at Cleveland Clinic, in addition to being the co-author of YOU: On a Diet and subsequent books in the series.
In our conversation, Dr. Roizen explains the surprising outcomes of the “GE Better Health Study” survey, which asked more than 2,000 Americans age 18 and older, and more than 1,200 physicians, nurses, pharmacists and dietitians about their healthy living attitudes, behaviors and barriers, as well as the state of the doctor/patient relationship. We share those results below.
Listen now to my interview with Dr. Michael Roizen.
Tune in this Monday, January 4 to the Dr. Oz Show to learn about the ultimate diet.
As a kick-off to the healthy intentions of the New Year, Dr. Oz and his colleague, Dr. Michael Roizen, will give you just the information, tips and advice you need to successfully lose weight.
Sharing tips from his book, YOU: On a Diet, this well-known doctor will show you how to create a meal plan that will not only trim inches from your waist, but will also improve your health and satiate your appetite. You’ll also learn how to develop and stick with an exercise plan that helps to boost your metabolism and reduce stress.
First there was You: On a Diet and now there is You: Being Beautiful by the super-famous doctor team of Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Michael Roizen. The book is an owner’s manual to looking, feeling and being beautiful inside and out.
If you have never seen Dr. Oz in action, you must catch an episode of Oprah,where his charming demeanor, frank candor and encyclopedic medical brain tackles the common and not-so common health issues.
This latest book takes a tough look at what we believe beauty to be. It debunks some popular myths about beauty and calls into question many of the supposed beautifying lotions and potions that we have eaten up, slathered on our bodies or shelled over some serious cash for and instead points out why these products actually do more harm to our health than good.
