What does exercise have to do with longevity? Everything! But wait, not all forms of exercise are created equal in paving the way for a long, healthy life. As an athlete and an Ayurvedic practitioner, I’ve experienced firsthand the life-changing benefits of an exercise theory I call, “less is more.” Enjoy this free 1-hour talk on the exercise method that Ayurveda and modern research agree can tack significant years on to your life.

Body, Mind and Sport (paperback, 250 pages) is a best-selling book of health and holistic fitness through Ayurveda: How to reproduce the “zone” without pain and strain. Learn to enjoy exercise maybe for the first time ever with proper breathing, a proper individualized diet, and a lifestyle in harmony with nature. Body, Mind and Sport covers each of these and more in easy-to-read detail.
Ashwagandha (withania somnifera), sometimes spelled Ashwaganda and also known as Winter Cherry, is becoming a favorite adaptogen with many Western herbalists because of its unique properties. Translated, it means “the sweat or strength of ten horses,” alluding to its deeply nourishing and strengthening properties. When I was with the New Jersey Nets I gave this to all players before and after every game to boost stamina, immunity and performance.
Regenerate is a combination of predominantly Shilajit, with synergistic benefits of both Ashwagandha and Amalaki. Shilajit is known in India as “the destroyer of weakness.” For thousands of years Shilajit has been used to support energy, memory, absorption of vital nutrients, intelligence, healthy blood sugar, and detoxification. This is great oxygenator and and driver of energy from the mitochondria. Again this is a great pre and post workout supplement.
