The art of lifestyle medicine | Howard Napper | TEDxBournemouthUniversity
It seems to be widely assumed that our adult lives are governed by the depressing fact that physical degeneration inevitably kicks in somewhere around our early 30’s, and then inexorably continues until our demise somewhere later in life. So you might be pleasantly surprised to discover that reality is very different.
In his talk, lifestyle practitioner Howard Napper explores the fascinating notion that the human body is less a permanent structure and more a regenerating organism that exists in a constant state of flux, where old cells are constantly being replaced by new cells. And how our lifestyle, and the moment-to-moment choices we make can affect this biological remodelling for better or worse.
Howard is a lifestyle practitioner and a popular yoga teacher who has sold close to four million yoga DVD’s over ten titles. He has collaborated with several big brands including Kellogg’s Special K, GMTV, Boots and WH Smith. Howard has also co-authored a bestselling book, and writes for a number of magazines. He is often seen on TV and is the host of ITV2’s Simply Yoga with Howard Napper.
