Dr. Roger Landry and the Authentic Health Movement
Dr. Roger Landry, President of Masterpiece Living, is the author of Live Long Die Short: A Guide for Authentic Health and Successful Aging. With a rich, conversational style, Live Long, Die Short gives us a deeper understanding of what it takes to be authentically healthy, of the profound negative effects of modern day stress, and our need to nurture all aspects of our magnificent human nature.
In Part I, Dr. Landry takes the reader on a journey that goes deeply to the very roots of what it takes for we humans to be healthy and to age in a better way. Using that as a foundation, he reviews the research on aging which affirms that how we age is mostly determined by lifestyle, the choices we make every day.
He then gives the reader an opportunity to take a snapshot of her own current lifestyle and provides feedback which can guide the reader through Part II, a treasure trove of practical advice on achieving health which is rooted in our basic needs as a species … authentic health … and with that, successful aging.
In Part III, Dr. Landry challenges the reader to respond to the moral imperative that comes with knowing that authentic health and successful aging is achievable by all. Using the story of the development of Masterpiece Living, Dr. Landry provides us with the response of the Masterpiece Team to this moral imperative.
