Secrets of Living Longer
Posted July 5th, 2023
“Everyone wants to live longer and science is starting to make that happen. But ‘living better’ will be the real challenge and opportunity.
In Time Magazine’s article on the science of aging well, Laura L. Carstensen explains:
“We live in extraordinary times. And thanks to medical and scientific advances that even a generation ago would have sounded like science fiction, our lives are getting longer. An American born today has a projected average life span 20 full years longer than one born in 1925, and we are, as a society, growing old. For the first time in U.S. history, the number of people over 60 exceeds those under age 15.”
Long life is a remarkable achievement. But our aging society presents challenges every bit as fundamental as climate change and globalization. If we, as a society, address the reality of longevity, we can avoid a crisis altogether and improve the quality of our lives at all ages while we’re at it. We need to plan.
Up to this era in time, improved drugs, diagnostic testing, surgeries, disease treatment and other medical advances have done a good job reducing fatality rates.
But what about the illnesses and medical conditions associated with aging? Is there a way to reverse, stop or prevent the symptoms of aging and nudge out a few more quality years?
The good news, you’ll be happy to hear, doesn’t include subsisting only on food that tastes like cardboard or spending the rest of your life in an ashram at the top of the Himalayans meditating.
For 15 years, The Renewal Point has offered individualized age management services for our patients. Our services include science evidence-based, integrative, and proven programs based on a simple 4-cornerstone approach.
The Four Cornerstones of Age Management
1. Hormone Balance‒Hormone imbalances, which occur as we get older, can be improved by Natural Hormone Rebalancing: sexuality, skin, strong bone & muscle, libido, sleep, energy, mood, focus, memory.
2. Body Composition‒Includes not only fit, trim bodies but also improved aerobic capacity, strength, lean fat mass, joint health, balance, and flexibility. Exercise is widely thought to be one of the best ways, if not the best way, to stretch your quality time. If you are looking for a individualized exercise program, we suggest contacting us about our in-office CKC Fitness Program.
3. Nutrition‒Nutritional deficiencies are found in 75% of people who eat a good diet and take supplements. This deficiency can lead to an increased risk for heart disease, cancer, neurological symptoms, fatigue and hormone imbalances. Many of us need more nutrients because of genetic anomalies or decreased digestion and absorption (which also declines as we age). Testing is necessary to determine these deficiencies.
4. Toxin Elimination ‒If you eat, breathe or drink water, you will accumulate toxins in your body: heavy metals, plastic, herbicides, pesticides, PCBs, etc. These poisons steal our health. Tests can reveal these toxins, so we can determine how to eliminate them.
