We all want to look good, feel good and live a high quality of life(glutenfreehelp.info). Looking around and seeing our elderly family members suffer or live lives through doctor's appointments, is neither appealing nor ideal. We want to avoid the pitfall of growing old and looking old, so we work hard at adapting our schedules to fit in exercise, buy organic and doing our research.

By the time one hits the 50's there goes half our muscular strength, half of our lung capacity, and a good percentage of bone. This applies to men and women. After menopause many women have an unsuccessful battle with weight gain around their waist and hips, and the rise in breast cancer increases as our hormones are really all out of sorts and diminishing. We seldom hear of a rise in testicle cancer in young boys, yet we sure do in the declining hormonal man. It is time for us to really open our eyes, learn and make some changes and do something about it BEFORE the trouble starts.

Aging does happen and it happens when cell death begins. To start on an effective anti-aging program (tinaturbin.com/c/baby-boomers/) is ideal. Today's life expectancy is near doubled that of a century ago at 42 years old. Today there are many seniors in their 90's, over 70,000 centenarians in the U.S.A. and this is expected to double in the next 5-10 years. Let's live long and with a high quality of life. We have advancements in medicine and technology which are great contributors to these changes in life expectancy.

We can help make our cells stay healthy from within by a number of means yet there are a few key points which are tried and true and that make a difference! Yes, exercising and a healthy diet (tinaturbin.com) are definitely a start. As we know the American diet is deficient in many essential nutrients, resulting in degenerative diseases.  Even if we follow a healthy diet, our way of farming has depleted the soil of many essential minerals.  Now we add the poor effects of pollution, use of refined sugar, high fat (especially trans-fat), simple sugars, and high salt in many of our boxes or frozen foods, so our need for supplementation is magnified.

For this reason, supplementation is a key pillar of any effective anti-aging program.  There is no single “magic bullet” supplement that can reverse aging. However, we do know that combining various supplements, exercise and a good diet with a proper protocol from a well trained anti- aging doctor will improve ones physical life. There is even more we can do and many of us are doing this with rave successes.

At times any one of us may have adverse reactions to any particular food we are eating, undermining all the hard work we are doing. Digestive disturbances of all sorts are rampant amongst people as they hit their early 40's and many kids are having troubles these days too. Proper enzymes to help digestion and even proper allergy tests may be necessary. Many people are gluten or dairy intolerant (glutenfreehelp.info) and don’t even know it, living with all sorts of symptoms which can be easily resolved.

Natural hormone replacements, bioidentical hormones have taken precedence these days. Many reports of feeling better than ever, pain gone to diminishing, weight loss finally. Muscle tone improved, can exercise with vigor, wrinkle reduction, sleeping better and energy like "when I was a kid", and the list goes on.

Bioidentical pharmacies are popping up all over and many doctors and surgeons are converting or adding to their primary service, to now include and anti-aging protocol. Many stating they were tired of not being able to truly help and they knew there was something missing in their practice, and they were right.

Protocols need to be and are individual as we are all personally individual , have different life styles and some of us may get a bit more aggressive on the regimen, due to our own nature or simply time and or money. The anti-aging doctor knows precisely how to read our lab work and guide us properly towards OUR own goals.  This is very important: find a doctor who listens to YOUR goals and helps you achieve THEM.

I do believe it is best to begin this type of protocol with some education in the area and stepping into it feeling this is the correct choice for oneself. So read up about it, do some Googling and get yourself informed. As our body get older our hormones decline towards low levels, which may totally explain many symptoms and illnesses some friends, family members and those you read about are experiencing. With the inclusion of a proper complete protocol with an expert anti aging doctor, we can fulfill our dreams for living many long, happy and healthy years and have the High Quality of Life (tinaturbin.com/c/high-quality-of-life) we all deserve.

Keep in mind to really check into bioidentical hormones for anyone you care about versus the "conventional" hormones and birth control pills, especially of you have kids who are teens and those in their 20's.  More on this will come in another article.
