A Unique Prescription for Preventing Problems as We Age
What if you could prevent dementia and Alzheimer’s without a pill, without major surgery and in just a few minutes a day? Stephen Jepson -- artist, athlete, inventor and entrepreneur -- says he has a simple prescription that could change the lives of millions. And all it takes is an open mind and a willingness to play.
Hundreds of thousands of people have watched an exclusive video with Jepson on GrowingBolder.com and he’s been approached by people from all over the world who want to learn more about his philsophies.
Jepson has built a backyard playground where he tests out his theories, walking on tightropes, balancing on boards while barefoot, throwing knives and juggling. In his 70s, Jepson says that since he started training, he has never fallen, his memory has gotten much sharper and he’s a happier, healthier man.
Falls can be deadly as we get older, and are one of the main reasons that people lose their independence. When we lose our balance and coordination, it can be nearly impossible to get them back. So Jepson says that his program is the key -- especially because it’s never too late to start.
“It makes your memory better, it makes you feel just absolutely juiced and jazzed and revitalized,” Jepson tells Growing Bolder. “You can do it at any moment in time.”
Jepson is one of the world’s most renowned potters, and his work has been featured in the Smithsonian Museum. He’s also the founder of the World Pottery Institute. In addition to his art, Jepson is a prolific inventor.
Watch the video that is capturing the imaginations of people across the world.
