This article contains claims such as Mr Johnson suggests he wants to be 18 againHe revealed that he is following a daily regimen that he claims has given him the lung capacity and physical stamina of an 18-year-old, the heart of a 37-year-old and the skin of a 28-year-old.

“A combination of factors made life challenging,” Mr Johnson said, adding that he blamed himself and what he called “self-destructive behaviour”. “I would be self-destructive, especially at seven o’clock in the evening, and I would try to eat to relieve stress,” he recalls. “It caused me to gain a lot of weight, it caused me to not sleep well, it caused me to not feel very good in life,” he added.
Mr Johnson finally decided to make a change. He revealed that what started out as a simple way of taking control of his life turned out to be much stricter. The tech millionaire came up with the idea of creating a system that would take better care of his health than he could. He employs a team of 30 doctors who work collaboratively on all the functions of his body.
“We use a whole-body ultrasound to examine my lungs, my heart, tendons, ligaments and muscles and all that sort of thing, so we need sonographers to operate ultrasound machines that specialize in the heart, and specialize in the lungs,” he explained. And added, “So a team is a group of specialists who do a specific thing. It’s a team that works together across all these different functions.”

Mr Johnson said he had lost five years of his epigenetic, or biological, age as a result of following a strict schedule for the past two years. “It sounds more daunting than it is,” he admits, before revealing that the “core” of the plan rests on prioritizing sleep, exercise and the importance of eating healthy foods like vegetables, berries and nuts.
“The data is compelling that if you do these things and do them well, you can slow down the rate of aging,” the 45-year-old told the outlet. “I’ve never been happier. I’ve never been healthier. I’ve never been Energetic. I’ve never been more consistent. Definitely, I’ve never been more [been] better,” he said. “The system is helping me to be healthier and happier than I am,” he added.
Mr Johnson’s treatment plan relies heavily on medical data and evidence. It is led by Oliver Zolman, a 29-year-old regenerative medicine doctor with a medical degree from King’s College London.
