Kara Fitzgerald ND, IFMCP - Aging in Reverse: Targeting Human Healthspan and Lifespan (1 General CE Credit)

2023 Thaena Microbiome Symposium - The Rise of Oxidative Stress + Chronic Inflammation: An Ecosystem Approach.


New scientific discoveries are enabling us to quantify biological aging in ways we haven’t been able to before. In addition, a growing realization that targeting aging itself, rather than playing “whack a mole” with individual chronic diseases such as heart disease and Alzheimer’s, will have dramatic individual, societal, and economic benefits. Several different inputs are known to influence biological aging and are targets for moving the needle towards great “healthspan” and lifespan.



  1. How aging is the biggest risk factor for chronic disease
  2. New scientific breakthroughs in measuring and reversing biological age, including DNA methylation-based epigenetic age “clocks” 
  3. Dr. Fitzgerald’s research demonstrating the potential for reducing biological age in just 8 weeks using targeted dietary and lifestyle interventions



Kara Fitzgerald, ND, IFMCP, is engaged in clinical research on DNA methylation using a diet and lifestyle intervention developed in her virtual and in-person Functional Medicine clinic. She is the author of Younger You: Reduce Your Bio Age and Live Longer, Better, a ground-breaking work detailing an 8-week study that resulted in a 3-year reversal of biological aging, and the step-by-step program that will help you live better and longer. She has since published a follow up case series in women, in which participants reduced their biological age by an average of over four years compared to baseline. In her quest for personalized health care for all, she leads clients through her Younger You Program and has as a Younger You companion cookbook, Better Broths and Healing Tonics. 

Dr. Fitzgerald is on faculty at the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), and is an IFM Certified Practitioner. She regularly lectures internationally and hosts the podcast New Frontiers in Functional Medicine. She received her doctorate in naturopathic medicine from the National University of Natural Medicine in Oregon and is in private practice in Sandy Hook, Connecticut.
