Dodging Bullets with Dr. Naras Lapsys
February 23 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm SMT$15.00
Negotiating the Path Towards a Healthier and Longer Life
As we pass a full year of COVID-19 infecting the globe, the NLPA wants to take a look at how we can not only survive but thrive into our later years in life. We’ve teamed up with Dr. Naras Lapsys, PhD in Molecular Genetics and Accredited Practicing Dietitian and Accredited Practicing Sports Dietitian, to bring us the facts and nothing but the facts.
In this webinar, we’ll be having a conversation with Dr. Lapsys on what he believes are the key factors in living a longer, healthier life. A healthy and fulfilling life that extends well into your 90’s is an achievable and worthy aspiration. However, you will need to ‘dodge bullets,’ by delaying ill-health, preserving your physical capabilities, and nurturing your most valuable asset, your brain.
In this webinar, he’ll introduce the concept of health span and the key principles required to achieve a healthier and longer life. Drawing upon current nutrition research, sleep physiology, exercise physiology and psychology, Dr. Lapsys will define what it means to be healthy, from the inside out. He’ll discuss the key ‘levers’ of health and how to manipulate these levers for health optimisation.
In this webinar, Dr. Lapsys will introduce and discuss the following topics in more detail:
- Health span fundamentals
- How to delay the onset of chronic diseases
- Preserving physical and mental health
- The role of nutrition in health and longevity
- The importance of sleep – why is sleep so important, how much sleep do we need & practical advice on how to improve your sleep
- Exercising for life – developing a framework for longevity exercise
This webinar introduces new concepts from the applied science of longevity medicine. The content is engaging and not overly scientific. We believe you will walk away with clear direction and practical advice on how to increase your health and longevity.

In 1995, having completed a PhD in molecular genetics, my career began as a research scientist investigating obesity and diabetes, at the prestigious Garvan Institute of Medical Research, in Sydney, Australia. However, after 10 years of academia I concluded that the ‘magic pill’ for health was a long way off and that in the meanwhile good health required effort and needed to be earned. I returned to university, obtained a Masters degree in in nutrition and dietetics, and in 2004, opened my first nutrition consultancy The Body Doctor. As both an Accredited Practicing Dietitian and Accredited Practicing Sports Dietitian, my interests spanned a vast range of health and performance issues. I became very involved in weight management, chronic disease and gastro-intestinal health. I developed a keen interest in sports performance and managing pregnancies. I observed that stress, sleep, fitness and state of mind have significant impact on how people eat and how all these factors intertwine and affect one’s health.
I also identified that many people suffer food addiction and that like all addictions, it can be very challenging to manage or overcome. As my career developed I became very interested in longevity and the profound role that nutrition and lifestyle can play on disease prevention, healthy aging and lifespan. I undertook additional formal education and become Board certified in both Australia and USA in regenerative and anti-aging medicine. In 2018, I relocated to Singapore and by combining my years of research, experience gained from thousands of clients and continued education, I formed a bespoke nutrition and longevity consultancy dedicated to the goal of helping people to live healthier and longer lives.
