Longevity attempts to increase our time on earth, but maybe equally important is getting the most of whatever time we have.

Sleep is critically important for our health span, and Dr. Walker is maybe the world’s leading expert on sleep.

Many of our modern health problems have arisen from modernity – looking at modern disease through this evolutionary lens helps a lot to shed light on the root causes, and thus how to treat or reverse them

I do get a very small referral for ordering through the links above, but any of the books are also available for practice members to borrow for free from the practice library. I wanted a central place where people could find a curated list of recommended books and other items.
