Vail is in for rejuvenation!

VAIL – You don’t have to “get old,” says Ellen Wood, age-reversing pioneer, columnist and author of “The Secret Method for Growing Younger.” “Most of us just assume that aging means becoming weak, losing our faculties and limiting our choices,” Wood said. Not so. On Aug. 8, Wood and leading anti-aging specialist, Terry Grossman, M.D., are bringing their message and age-reversing techniques to Vail with a four-hour workshop titled, “How To Be Young & Joyful At Any Age.” Grossman, one of the world’s top anti-aging physicians and medical director of Grossman Wellness Center in Denver, and Wood teach from two perspectives: the physician’s knowledge and personal experience of growing younger – resulting in what promises to be a life-changing experience. To give back to the community, Wood and Grossman are donating 10 percent of ticket sales to the Vail Valley Foundation.Grossman, a M.D. practicing in Colorado since 1979, focuses on integrative medicine, preventive wellness and age management medicine. Grossman’s website is http://www.grossmanwellness.com.At 73, Wood is living proof that it’s possible to grow younger and reverse the symptoms of aging most people accept as normal. After watching her mother waste away with Alzheimer’s, Wood expected the same to be her fate. Before long, this vibrant, retired marketing executive began to experience short-term memory loss and other distressing signs of progressive deterioration. At age 67, she decided not to go that route. Her own program, involving body, mind and spirit action steps, turned her life around. Wood regained her mental acuity; a stronger, more flexible body and the stamina and energy she’d had 30 years before. That’s when she knew she had to share her findings and help others grow younger as well. Her website is http://www.howtogrowyounger.com.The Aug. 8 workshop begins at 1:30 p.m. and ends at 5:30 p.m. at the Vail Cascade Resort. Tickets are $90 in advance or $115 at the door.
