Can You Avoid Aging?
Walk into any department store and you’ll find hundreds of beauty products lining the shelves. Each one of those products has something else, something unique to offer. Most promise to hide the signs of aging. Some make claims of being able to erase the years and to have you looking 10, 20 or more years younger. But, in truth, there is no way to avoid aging, is there?
Consider some numbers for a moment.
In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, the average life expectancy in the United States was that of just 42 years of age! Today, that number has nearly doubled its size and that’s no short feet to accomplish. The fact is that people are living longer because of the benefits of modern medicine and the benefits that technology offer.
In fact, today, there are over 70,000 people in the United States alone that are at the age of 100 or more! That is an outstanding number.
As you watch your parents age, you are probably thinking to yourself the things that you would have done different, so that you don’t walk down their same path.
Perhaps you would like to be more active so that arthritis doesn’t set in so soon. Or, perhaps you would be tested sooner than they were for cancers, heart disease and countless other conditions. The good news is that you do have the ability to see these things going wrong and therefore you should be able to reach out and lengthen your lifespan.
One way we like to think that we can do this is by looking younger. That’s why all of those products are on the market. If it was a multi billion dollar business, there wouldn’t be so many products trying to take part of that chunk of change. But, what type of anti aging product can you possibly invest in that’s going to improve the quality of your life?
What if we told you that it really had nothing to do with those products on the market, but that it had to do with the things that you are capable of making changes with today, right now?
But, before you get to those good tidbits, it’s important for you to understand that you don’t just want to look younger. You need to dig deeper into your lifestyle and feel younger.
With modern medicine and modern science, we have a much better understanding of how the things around use effect us. We know that cancer can be caused by toxins entering into your body when you breathe and we know that some forms of heart disease happen because of the foods we eat. But, we also know how virtually everything else on planet earth effects us too.
By taking that knowledge and using it to look for ways to improve our aging faculties, you are able to truly transform your life to a point that goes beyond that of what any of those anti aging wrinkle creams can do.
Research Has Guided Us
Research by skilled doctors has guided us to these answers. For example, some researched are so dedicated to anti aging that they’ve developed a protocol that will lead you through the process. For example, take a look at these signs of aging.
By the time that you are 35 years old, the amount of hormone that your body makes has sharply declined. The stress you are under, the foods that you eat and the city’s air quality has lead to little particles getting into your body (these are called free radicals, by the way!) They get into your cells and can be the beginnings of cancer. Even though you feel good, the process has already started.
Or, by the next stage, by the time that you are 45, even more destruction has happened to the body, especially the individual cells in your body. Hormones have further dropped and now, your body is starting to show signs of aging. Your skin, your hair, and even your energy levels are showing signs of aging.
At this point, if you are still getting high levels of free radicals entering your body, it is at the point of leading to the development of cancer, if it hasn’t already.
Still, it gets a bit worse when you move past this age. Now, things are completely working against you. Lower hormones, again, and your skin is drier. It has thinned considerably because your body has stopped making enough collagen to support it. Your joints are chiming in now with the first aches and pains of arthritis. Your engery levels have fallen considerably.
If you fall victim to heart conditions, diabetes, or hypertension, your organs have started to fail you. Of course, heart disease is likely to be the type of disease to kill you.
Yes, it does sound grim. But, because researchers do have this wealth of an understanding about your body, they can now help you to make changes that will improve your health and help you to gain freedom from much of this.
What is important is to address the body not as a whole but as individual cells, by which it is composed. By taking into consideration the vast number of cells and their needs, you can provide the appropriate attention to the conditions that face them, improve your health and wellness and eventually help yourself to live a longer, healthier life.
While you may want to consider dieting and exercise as the best ways to stay healthy, even this is not the right path to follow. What you should be doing, then, is creating a plan that specifically treats your body in the hopes of working as an anti aging tool.
By doing these things they will help you, the Baby Boomer, to live longer and healthier. Remember that these things are going to help improve your life today and well into the rest of your life time, no matter how long that is.
