The Rejuvenate podcast is dedicated to looking at the real root causes of premature aging, and what we can do to 'turn back the clock' and feel younger and healthier again.
Each episode will focus on a different area of health.

To begin with, episodes will be quite broad and just an overview of a big subject, then later the plan is to go more in depth, both with our hosts, and also guests, on more specific issues and give a comprehensive plan for each.
