- 142. JOURNEY TO AGELESS with Author and Humorist Ruth Yunker Dr. Orest Komarnyckyj 54:23
Turning 70 is a milestone in and of itself which I’ll be hitting in a few weeks. But what does it feel like? Is it any different from other milestones? And what can we do to keep our body and mind healthy? Is hormone therapy the answer or should we do something else? And what is the most important thing to age well? We’d be getting answers to all these questions and even more in today’s episode “Journey to Ageless” with Ruth Yunker.

Ruth Yunker’s first two books are about her long stays in Paris, solo, learning to be a polite and happy American in Paris, doing it their way. They are “Me, Myself and Paris”, and “Paris, I’ve Grown Accustomed to Your Ways”.
Her current book “Baby, I’m the Boss of Me, My Journey to Ageless” consists of stories of her life, and how, now, she’s facing the third trimester of life with joy, personal power and above all, a healthy sense of humor. Her confidence and joie de vivre come from having lived a multi-faceted life, which has included a much-traveled life. She’s married twice, raising two children, and caring for both her parents through their final years. And along the way raised and loved a multitude of cats. A dog should be in her future!
