Alix Interviews Longevity Guru David "Avocado" Wolfe

Last month I was a virgin. A David Wolfe Longevity Now Conference virgin, that is. I'd noticed Wolfe's energy and conviction in the film Food Matters , knew some of his work, and knew we both loved avocados, but I have to say I really didn't "get" it yet.
That changed as I sat with 999 other health enthusiasts in a California hotel ballroom, taking in the barefoot health guru as he jutted across the stage sharing diamonds - health insights obviously gleaned from hours (possibly eons) of research. His commanding and fun stage presence could keep a narcoleptic awake. Even if Wolfe's engaging style weren't enough, alertness paid off: flying superherbs or superfoods could bonk you in the head at any time.
Wolfe is all about the extraordinary: superfoods, superherbs, and reversing the diseases medical doctors consider irreversible. He's not interested in being politically correct or adhering to any standard of care. FDA be damned: The Longevity Now Conference walked the cutting edge of health, healing, and longevity. I walked away with the urge to investigate at least ten new healthy practices or products that I'd never heard of before.
If you couldn't make it, I sat down with David Wolfe and asked him to give us the take-aways. Of course, the interview is as fun as he is, and it has a "happy ending" as our camerawoman steps forward with an admission: ( Email subscribers click here for video .)
