Aging can’t be avoided, yet premature aging can be slowed down by our choices that are instrumental in determining to what extent aging will impact our bodies. The medical literature shows that we have the ability to age in a healthy, active manner. I share with my patients that it is not the chronological age that we should be concerned about, it is the biological age of the 75 trillion cells that make up our body that must be our focus. In fact, evidence indicates that how we age is not a predetermined conclusion but rather a choice we make based on lifestyle and nutritional factors.1-2
Healthy aging is often one of the primary goals of patients, but often, they do not know where to begin to accomplish this goal. In this article, I will describe what I feel to be some of the most important concerns we face as we age. For each concern, I will share the protocol I typically use for my patients. In this article, I will limit my protocols to a maximum of the three most important products for each of the concerns.
This is meant to be an introductory discussion, and in the coming months, I will delve more deeply into each health topic mentioned below.
