Defining The Goal

The Marginal Decade™ is the last decade of life, whenever that is. Most of us dread even thinking about it. But what if thinking about it could provide you with the very roadmap you need to live a long and healthy life?

We’re here to figure out how good you need to be today, to achieve your goals tomorrow.™

Understanding Longevity

What does it really mean to optimize your longevity? We define longevity as a function of two things, lifespan (how long you live) and healthspan (how well you live). Longevity is not just about living longer, it’s about reducing the amount of time you spend in the final stages of decline by “squaring your longevity curve”™.

Your curve is not set in stone. This is a malleable process.

Building The Strategy

We’re constantly bombarded with advice on how to be healthy: What pills should I take? How should I eat? How often should I exercise? This is when it’s important to hit pause, take a step back and clearly define our objective and our strategy.

 If you want to live longer, you must live longer without disease, not longer with disease.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Early?

At its core, Early is an intensive 12-module program that provides you with the education and tools necessary to engineer your own longevity playbook from start to finish. 

Early is sui generis. It has no peer. This does not mean there are no other places to find information related to the applied science of longevity. It means that we are unaware of any other means by which one can learn, in a complete and comprehensive way and, most importantly, translate that learning into actionable steps to achieve the desired outcome – living better and living longer.

Why did you create Early?

Early was created as a response to one of the most common questions we have been asked over the past few years: “How can I become a patient in your practice?” 

The answer to this question is that, for many reasons, the practice cannot accommodate a large number of patients.

So, while there is no direct doctor/patient relationship with Peter or our clinical staff, Early aims to be the next best thing – an organized, exhaustive, and actionable plan designed to put you in the driver’s seat of your own longevity journey.

Why is it called Early?

The name Early came from one of our patients, and it refers to two very important things about anyone’s health journey: 1) the importance of being early to act, and 2) being early to adopt new knowledge.

How is Early different from the podcast, weekly newsletter, and everything else currently available?

There are many ways in which Early differentiates itself from the podcast and newsletter; however, the most significant difference is its purpose. 

The purpose of the podcast is to learn from subject matter experts on various topics related to longevity. The podcast does not follow an organizational pattern and it can be difficult for someone to make sense of the previous five years worth of content.  

This is where Early departs from our typical content. It is purposefully organized around an objective. The objective is to provide each participant with the information and tasks, in chronological order, necessary to change the arc of their healthspan and lifespan.

The 12 modules are structured, both in terms of video content and written content, to take you through a journey similar to that which a patient might experience in our practice. 

The most important element that we’ve built into Early is actionable content. Over the years, we have heard from many listeners of the podcast, especially in response to very technical content, that it is difficult to know how to act on what they have learned. Early is our response to this concern and is designed to be highly actionable.

Do I get direct contact with Peter or one of the physicians through Early?

As much as we wish that our clinical team could treat each of our dedicated supporters, this is simply not possible. Enrollment in Early does not provide a direct relationship between participants and Peter, or our clinical team, and no doctor/patient relationship is formed.

With that said, Early was designed to equip you with the knowledge and tools necessary to navigate your own longevity journey without a physician, when possible. The program also aims to help you skillfully navigate your interactions with the medical system, when necessary.

How much content does it contain?

Early consists of more than 100 videos, totaling more than 25 hours of original content, available exclusively in the Early program, and hundreds of supporting documents and resources that help you apply what you have learned in your own life.

How long does it take to go through Early?

This will be different for everyone. The time each participant can dedicate to the program material on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis is variable.

Early was designed to take approximately 1 year to go through, and act on, the material provided. Some modules (12 in total) will take longer than others. Some participants may spend more time in certain modules than others based on their individual needs, or challenges they uncover in the process. With that said, the Early program is best viewed as a lifelong endeavor. Our health and circumstances change as time passes and Early is a resource you can come back to indefinitely. Longevity is a process, rather than a destination, and Early can serve as the post to which you tether your longevity journey.

You will get the most out of this program if you go through it in chronological order (don’t skip ahead), and take the time necessary to ensure you understand the content and complete the action items associated with each module.

Is Early applicable for anyone regardless of age or sex?

Yes. We designed Early to have broad application for people of different ages, current health statuses, predispositions, and more. Generally speaking, everyone should be able to benefit from the program material.

With that said, it is unlikely you’ll find your exact set of health circumstances addressed in the program. Rather, our hope is that you’ll see you have something in common with each of the scenarios presented in the program and, in turn, be able to string those commonalities together to engineer a longevity playbook that is tailored to you, specifically.

Can I get value from the content if I don’t live in the U.S.?

Yes. The videos and associated content in Early will work for people anywhere in the world. In module 5 of the program we provide a few resources to help people run their labs if they are not able to do them through their doctor (at direct cost to the user). At this time, these resources are only available for people living in the U.S.
