Anti-Aging

Anti-Aging

'Anti-Aging' has become an increasingly popular buzz phrase in today's health care vernacular. Rather than coming in to be treated when they become sick, many patients, today, choose to pursue a personal health care plan that will slow and, in some cases, reverse the aging process.  If you want to feel younger, look younger, and stay healthy and strong well into the later years of your life, then an anti-aging strategy is what you are looking for. 
 
Whether you realize it or not, the integrative and holistic approach we use for all your health-care needs at Whole-Body Medicine is, in essence, an anti-aging approach.  Anything we do to help your body achieve an optimum state of health and well-being ultimately plays a role in successful aging. The earlier in life you adopt these strategies, the more successful your anti-aging strategy will be.
 
Unfortunately, there is no single magic drug or supplement that will help you live a long, healthy life.  In fact, the increasing use of prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications may contribute to deteriorating the quality of our lives as we get older.  Nevertheless, a consistent lifestyle, focused on proper diet, nutrition, exercise, supplementation, detoxification, and stress reduction, will pave the path toward youthful aging.  
 
Following an anti-aging strategy requires that you take control and play an active, informed role in your health care.  At Whole-Body Medicine, we will get you started on your anti-aging journey and we will arm you with the knowledge and tools necessary to maintain this path for a lifetime.  However, each person's anti-aging plan will differ somewhat, depending upon that patient's current state of health, levels of toxicity, emotional status, and blood type.  Your anti-aging protocol will be carefully tailored to meet your needs and may include a detox plan, exercise routine, specific diet, proper nutrition, appropriate supplementation, stress reducing techniques, and proper skin care techniques. We want to help you feel your best and look your best!
 
At Whole-Body Medicine, you will learn why toxins in your body represent a critical barrier to healthy living and aging, and why detoxification is not only a crucial first step, but is also an ongoing process to be continued throughout your life.  You will also learn which diet will work well for you and your individual metabolism, including learning which foods may not be right for your metabolic type.  You will learn about the correct types and amounts of exercise, as exercise plays a vital role in keeping you strong and healthy. We will share with you the latest scientific research on cutting-edge, anti-aging supplements, so you can incorporate these into your daily routine. These include high dose fish oil, Co-Enzyme Q10, Alpha Lipoic Acid, among others. 
 
Another important area your anti-aging strategy will address, is stress reduction. There is an abundant amount of scientific research that shows that the way in which you process stress has a definite physical impact upon your health. Recommended stress management techniques may include yoga, meditation, or prayer, etc. Successful aging requires that you maintain an appropriate level of stress and keep a healthy, optimistic attitude.  Yes, the mind-body connection is real and is powerful.
 
If you wish to live long and live well, you must take a comprehensive approach to your anti-aging strategies. While we all eventually age, you can optimize how well you age.
