A natural approach to slowing down the ageing process
The greatest influences of premature & unhealthy ageing are:
- Hormone imbalance
- Poor lifestyle choices
- Toxic environment Nutritional deficiencies Poor digestion & gut health Excess stress
- Poor genes Poor sleep
There is no one cause of ageing, research shows it seems to be caused by several cellular, genetic and biochemical processes.
We are lucky we know what these processes are, and have a wealth of research on how to ameliorate them.
Using the naturopathic principle of treating the underlying cause, a longevity lifestyle addresses these cellular & biochemical processes through diet, lifestyle and supplementation.
The biochemical processes we address through a naturopathic longevity lifestyle (and we will show you how) are:
- Oxidative stress
- Chronic Inflammation
- Hormone Imbalance
- Telomere length
- DNA health
- Mitochondrial health
- Genetics & epigenetics
- Immune function
There are a wide range of health conditions that can be prevented/reduced/modified through an anti-ageing lifestyle:
- Dementia/Alzheimers Cardiovascular Disease Diabetes
- Metabolic Syndrome Fatty liver
- Hormonal Imbalances Low muscle mass High body fat
- Immune function General Wellbeing Wrinkles & Sagging Skin
Targets of Anti-Ageing Medicine
Hormone Levels: Ensuring all hormones are balanced and at optimal levels. Including HGH, testosterone, DHEA, oestrogen & progesterone, adrenal & thyroid hormones & neurotransmitters.
Systemic Inflammation: Poor GUT membrane integrity, inflammatory diet and disrupted endocrine system lead to chemical reactions that cause inflammation, this inflammation leads to cardiovascular disease, dementia, poor immune system, increased risk of cancer and skin ageing.
Oxidative Stress: This has far reaching adverse effects on ageing. Damaging the mitochondria, thus damaging DNA, increasing our risk of many diseases. Oxidative stress also has a MAJOR impact on our skin health, leading to a break down in collagen, that leads to wrinkles and skin sagging.
Immune Function: A poor immune system leads to poor defensives against foreign organisms and damaged dna that can lead to cancer and other age related disease’s.
The majority of the population are in a state of accelerated ageing.
