Dr. Gladys McGarey: A Well-Lived Life at Any Age

In this episode, I had the extreme pleasure to sit down and speak with Dr. Gladys McGarey, who has just published her latest book, “The Well-Live Life, A 102-Year-Old Doctor’s Six Secrets to Health and Happiness at Every Age.” How often can you say you had the chance to speak with a centenarian, especially one as accomplished as Dr. Gladys? She is known as the “mother of holistic medicine.” During our conversation, she shares stories about growing up in India learning from her physician parents, describes how she rejuvenates her “juice” by having purpose and love in her life, and explains her ten-year plan to create a village of living medicine. She instills in us her six secrets to living a well-lived life and implores everyone to find humor in tragedy and to let go of things that don’t matter using the Hindustani phrase “kuchi pruwani.” If only we all could have such a fulfilled, loving life as Dr. Gladys.
