Suzanne Somers is giving away all the secrets to looking and feeling young in a new latest interview done to promote her most recent book. Who else loves aging? 


Suzanne Somers is best known for her role in the hit 70s show, "Three's Company." Now 73, the actress has gone through what many consider a downhill battle that we all must partake in. 

While getting older is typically not something that's celebrated — especially by women — Somers is different. She boldly states, "The older I get, the better it gets, the better I feel, I like the way I look." 

The video created for the New York Post precedes an eye-opening interview in which the author divulges her take on alternative medicine, her "rockin' libido," and a refreshing attitude to aging.

Surprising bedroom antics

Somers, who played Chrissy Snow on "Three's Company," is doing several promotional events to promote her new book, titled "A New Way to Age." 

In it, a variety of doctors speak on alternative ways to combat aging so that more women can be as content as Somers seems to be. Nearly 43 years into her marriage with producer Alan Hamel, the health activist has a very active sex life. 

To keep up with her twice-a-day habit, Somers reportedly injects her 83-year-old husband with testosterone weekly. She also gives him his peptide PT-141.

Her tips for feeling young

Being active in the bedroom is just one tip Somers mentioned in the video. She also advised fans to be aware of their daily habits, exercise regularly to ward off cancer, and eat organic.


Of course, Somers also spoke specifically to women, who are more commonly insecure about their bodies and the effects of aging on it. Her advice? Embrace it. 


Quoting words from her therapist, Somers reminded fans that "there is no perfect body." She added that "flaws [are] uniquely you, and they make you who you are." 

Nothing can slow her down

Somers also told the Post: 

"I thought that when I was 73 I would be old. I'm chronologically old, but I'm not old. I'm enjoying aging because I have acquired wisdom because I'm not pilled up and because I have juice (vitality)."

Despite her attitude, Somers has faced a couple of health battles over the years like everyone else. Currently, she's moving around with stilts due to a hip fracture. 

The setback seems minuscule in light of Somers' positive attitude. She fully expected some negative feedback for her book, but her focus is on learning and helping others. 


Feeling sexy as you get older

In particular, Somers wants women to know that they don't have to slow down over time. Her tips for fellow women to feel sexy as they age include donning a pair of heels now and then, and taking fun photos. 

For reference, Somers pointed to a nude photo she took last year in celebration of her birthday. The picture invited discussion from the public, just as the actress hoped it would. 


As a breast cancer survivor, Somers is about both health and self-love. She opted to get a cell-assisted lipotransfer that resulted in the reconstruction of her breasts. 

Somers called cancer a gift

Of course, Somers' cancer diagnosis hit her like it would most others. Reflecting on it late last year, the actress recalled how she felt the heaviness of her mortality.

She soon resolved to beat the disease — which she did — and went even stricter on her diet and eco-friendly lifestyle. Last August, she called cancer "one of the greatest gifts" in her life. 

In part, the disease was the turning point that led her to reinvent her life and live as clean as she does. Her bright smile alone is a telltale sign that she's doing something right.
