As one of the fastest growing areas within medicine, the anti-aging business is now a $122 billion dollar industry with researchers dedicating their careers to finding the fountain of youth. Whether it be copper peptides or acai supplements, most of the anti-aging industry focuses on limited aspects of eternal youth and vitality. But my guest on today's podcast believes it is time to apply the latest research into a new area of anti-aging medicine she calls "movement longevity". In her new book Barefoot Strong: Unlock the Secrets to Movement Longevity, Podiatrist & Human Movement Specialist Dr. Emily Splichal explores the science behind barefoot training and how this often overlooked area of health and fitness is actually the secret to youthful movement. As an internationally-renown educator on barefoot training, Dr. Emily has traveled the world exploring the concept of movement efficiency from the ground up. Through barefoot science, fascial fitness and neuromuscular conditioning, she will show you how to survive the unnatural conditions of today’s shod society and optimize your movement patterns. From barefoot activation exercises, to vitamin supplements to protect your peripheral nerves, Barefoot Strong is a go-to guide to ensure years of efficient movement – one step at a time. As a Podiatrist, Human Movement Specialist and Global Leader in Barefoot Science and Rehabilitation, Dr. Splichal has developed a keen eye for movement dysfunction and neuromuscular control during gait. Functional and Regenerative Medicine and the role of anti-aging science as it relates to movement longevity is where Dr Splichal's passion is focused and has led to her notoriety within Podiatry.

  Today I have Dr Emily Splichal on the podcast. I was introduced to Dr Emily by a good friend of mine who used to head up Trigger Point in NZ and I knew as soon as her website loaded, I needed to have her on the podcast. This quote by Leonardo Di Vinci "THE HUMAN FOOT IS A MASTERPIECE OF ENGINEERING AND A WORK OF ART" and then her intro paragraph on us holding the power to our own health and well-being and that we need to take ownership and commit to the plans and necessary steps needed to improve our lives. Boom.  This conversation really follows on from my one with Jay Dicharry on Running Rewired. There is simply stuff we need to do if we want to not only keep playing (our sports) but playing for the long term. Movement is freedom folks and to have freedom we need to move.  Ok without further ado.
