Good Morning,

Dive deep with us this week as we unravel the tantalizing mysteries and breakthroughs surrounding longevity.

Dr. Peter Attia challenges traditional medical paradigms, advocating for a proactive approach towards healthy aging. Meanwhile, in the heart of Saudi’s Amaala development, a luxurious sanctuary promises an intersection of wellness, indulgence, and longevity. Dr. Sanjay Gupta, on the other hand, takes us on a captivating journey through biohacking, as experts push the boundaries of human life expectancy. From preventative measures to bio-technological innovations and the essence of holistic wellbeing, this edition offers a comprehensive view of the art and science of living longer, and living well.

Let’s demystify the secrets of longevity…


How Early Prevention Could Change The World (New York Times)

Dr. Peter Attia’s latest book “Outlive: The Science & Art of Longevity” challenges conventional beliefs about healthy aging. Topping the best-seller charts since its spring release, Attia draws a line between the standard “Medicine 2.0” – addressing chronic diseases like heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and Type 2 diabetes only once they manifest – and his pioneering “Medicine 3.0” approach. In this paradigm shift, Attia emphasizes early prevention.

But how do you achieve it when surrounded by Medicine 2.0 doctors? Attia suggests integrating exercise, nutrition, sleep, and emotional health into your regimen, even without medical guidance. He also underscores the importance of patients actively participating in their medical journey, and sometimes even challenging traditional doctor-patient dynamics. As for the secret sauce to a longer healthspan? Resistance training, he says, is non-negotiable. Don’t wait for old age to say, “I wish I was stronger!”

Saudi’s Longevity Wellness Retreat (Business Traveller)

Saudi’s Amaala development, crafted by Red Sea Global (RSG), introduces its first wellness-focused property – Clinique La Prairie Health Resort. Nestled in Amaala’s Triple Bay hub, this 36,115 sqm resort boasts 13 villas and 52 luxe rooms and suites. The pièce de résistance? A central ‘Longevity Plaza’ directing guests to areas encapsulating the brand’s ethos – medical care, nutrition, movement, and wellbeing.

From diagnostic labs and cooking schools to gardens that exude tranquility, architect John Heah ensures opulence at every turn. Since 1931, Clinique La Prairie has married preventative medicine with tailored lifestyle and nutrition. Simone Gibertoni, the brand’s CEO, envisages this Amaala resort as an unparalleled sanctuary for health and longevity. Await Amaala’s unveiling in 2024; a haven for luxury tourism replete with 3,000 hotel rooms and state-of-the-art facilities.

Biohacking to Cure Aging (Fortune)

In his podcast “Chasing Life,” CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta dives into the realm of biohacking, a pursuit to extend human life expectancy. Amidst various tactics, some being potentially risky and lacking FDA approval, the core inquiry remains: do these strategies genuinely elongate life? Dr. Nir Barzilai, Director of the Institute for Aging Research at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, is on a mission to “cure aging.”

He emphasizes targeting the biology of aging before it starts, highlighting the potential of the diabetes drug metformin in combating aging hallmarks like inflammation and cell decay. Barzilai presents three main biohacking techniques: the Dorian Gray (slowing aging), the Wolverine (reversing aging), and the Peter Pan (inhibiting aging). Still, a holistic view underscores the importance of purpose and relationships for a long, fulfilling life, much like the foundational joys discovered in a Harvard study on happiness.


In this week’s issue, we ventured into the dynamic crossroads of art and science, where longevity meets proactive health measures and luxurious rejuvenation.

Dr. Peter Attia makes us rethink the power of prevention in redefining our health journeys, while Saudi’s Amaala promises an opulent haven where wellness meets indulgence. And as Dr. Sanjay Gupta opens the doors to the intriguing world of biohacking, we are invited to question, learn, and imagine the incredible possibilities of extending human life.

As the horizon of longevity broadens, we’re reminded that the journey to a longer life is as much about quality as it is about quantity.
