It is a true joy and honor to introduce you to Dr. Gladys McGarey, the 102-year-old mother of Holistic Medicine. Dr. Gladys still does 3500 steps a day and has a ten year plan. She is an inspiring example of what it means to have a healthy, vibrant, well-lived life. Her extraordinary book The Well-Lived Life is out everywhere today.
The Well-Lived Life is a profoundly moving, exquisitely observed book of inspiration and wisdom full of heart-wrenching depictions of overcoming adversity and secrets to vibrancy and longevity. Dr. McGarey’s life-changing stories of miraculous healing from her patients of all ages as well as from her own extraordinary life will change the way we think not only about health and healing but what leads to a life filled with joy and satisfaction.
Dr. McGarey distills the wisdom gleaned from a lifetime’s work and 100+ years of life into six actionable secrets to enjoying lives that are long, happy, and purpose-driven: spend your energy wildly, all life needs to move, you are here for a reason, you are never alone, everything is your teacher, and love is the most powerful medicine. We are so eager to share the book with you and guide you in living in alignment with your true purpose.
The Well-Lived Life gives us time-tested and actionable wisdom for how to align our body, mind, and spirit; find our greater purpose; and turn our greatest challenges into teachers. We hope you will find it just as life-changing as we have.
Doug has been wanting to share Dr. Gladys’s wisdom with the world for several decades because he has seen the healing power of her approach to life up close. When Doug was in high school, his mother was diagnosed with blood cancer and given a few years to live. She went to see Dr. Gladys, and she helped her to heal her condition. Doug’s mom is now alive and well forty years later.
We hope Dr. Gladys’s pioneering and still radical view of life will inspire your own well-lived life. To help you “find your juice,” we’re also linking an exclusive exercise from the book here.
