Nutritional therapist and wellness author Sally Beare shares her research into living a longer, happier and healthier life, gleaned from the ‘longevity hotspots’ of the world. The best bit? The answers are simple and sustainable
What we can learn from the world’s longevity hotspots

In Symi in Greece, Campodimele in Italy, Okinawa in
Japan, Bama in China, Hunza in Pakistan, Barbagia in Sardinia and Nicoya in Costa Rica, the perfect mix of ancient wisdom and modern science is helping to slow ageing – and adapting some of their secrets isn’t as hard as you might think.
