This 102-year-old doctor didn't expect to live so long. Here's how she did it

Dr. Gladys McGarey never expected to live until 102 years old. But, not only is she still going, the so-called “the mother of holistic medicine” is out with a new book about how she’s done it.

It’s called, "The Well-Lived Life," and in it, she describes the importance not of medicine, but of living with joy, vitality and purpose.

McGarey’s life has been long and winding, beginning with a childhood in India and a chance encounter with Mahatma Gandhi. The Show spoke with McGarey on her life experience.
