THE FOUR PILLARS OF ANTI AGING MEDICINE
1. Diet and lifestyle
2. Hormones and Peptides
3. Stem cells
Although it has long been felt a healthy diet, regular exercise and stress reduction can result in a host of medical benefits, research has now validated many of the ideas utilized in Anti-Aging Medicine.
Studies have linked the shortening of telomeres to a decrease in life expectancy and a greater risk of age-related diseases such as heart disease, vascular dementia, obesity, stroke, diabetes and various cancers.
Research shows that healthy lifestyle changes can partially reverse the telomere shortening which occurs with ageing.
BIOIDENTICAL HORMONES FOR MEN AND WOMEN
The following symptoms of hormone deficiency with aging are experienced by both sexes.
Low Libido Depression Forgetfulness
Sleep Disturbances Aches & Pains Weakness
Fatigue – “Burned Out” Thinning skin Headaches
Bone Loss Decreased Stamina Heart Palpitations
Keeping hormonal levels more youthful with bioidentical hormone treatments can help keep us young.
Peptides are chains of amino acids with diverse biological effects. They are prescribed for many conditions and enjoy a great safety profile. Some peptides are anti- inflammatory, helping the joints, muscles and the gastrointestinal system. Other peptides improve the immune response to fight infection and help many autoimmune conditions. Some peptides enhance the body’s own natural production of growth hormone. Growth hormone itself has been used for years as an anti- aging treatment, however, its expense and regulatory issues surrounding its use has limited its availability in medical practice. Peptides can achieve the same benefits as growth hormone treatments at much less expense.
A scientific article titled Stem Cells Targeting Inflammation as Potential Anti-Aging Strategies and Therapies was published by lead author Rafael Gonzalez. This article reviews studies which demonstrate that intravenous infusion of stem cells decreases inflammatory markers in the body. Fighting inflammation is key to the prevention of disease and aging. Many medical problems result from the effects of underlying inflammation and anything which can reduce inflammation may reduce the risk of many conditions, and have the effect of extending youthful ageing.
4 very important anti aging supplements.

This amazing substance is felt to be the constituent of red wine responsible for protection against heart disease.
A study at the Harvard Medical School in association with the National Institute of Aging demonstrated a lengthening of the life span of mice given the supplement. A lowering of the rate of diabetes and liver problems was also seen.
There are more scientific papers supporting the benefits of curcumin than any other herbal compound. The benefits include
LIVER PROTECTION AND GALLBLADDER STONE PREVENTION
CoQ10. An energy producing substance present in all of our cells has been shown to have many beneficial effects including enhancing cardiac muscle functioning. It can be depleted by taking the commonly prescribed statin medications for lowering cholesterol. People taking statins should take CoQ10.
