Life extension science, also known as anti-ageing medicine is the study of slowing down the processes of aging to extend both the maximum and average lifespan. Some researchers in this area, and “life extensionists” or “longevists” (those who wish to achieve longer lives themselves), believe that future break-throughs in tissue rejuvenation with stem cells, molecular repair, and organ replacement (such as with artificial organs or xenotransplantations) will eventually enable humans to have indefinite lifespans through complete rejuvenation to a healthy youthful condition. And although it has not been shown that the goal of indefinite human lifespans itself is necessarily infeasible this will not be possible in the near future….
The concept of “optimizing natural longevity” is useful when trying to draw a distinct line between what you can do now to lead a longer, healthier life, and what will be possible in the future. We can presume that there exists, for each person, some maximum life span – an “optimized natural longevity” – that one can reach using modern medicine and appropriate lifestyle and diet choices.
According to the latest scientific research with human cells, we are designed to live for 120 years, but the vast majority of people die 40-45 years before that age. Our biological age may vary according to lifestyle, diet, stress etc. All these factors mean that biological age and chronological age do not correspond at all. Ultimately, this disparity is what we commonly call ageing and can occur all over or in just one part of our body.
Ageing is not the result of any one single factor, but is the cumulative result of a number of factors, including:
- The ageing of cells
- Diminished telomerase activity
- Protein degradation
- Excess sugar activity
- Progressive dehydration
- Accumulated toxic build-up in organ tissue
- Reduced circulation
- Reduced cellular energy production
- Changes in hormone levels and hormone balance
- Impeded energy flows in the body
- Excessive body weight
- And, of course, good old wear and tear
The above list is hardly complete. We could add stress, the accumulation of free radicals in the body, and the results of cumulative poor nutrition, for example.
There is many things we can do ourselves to slow down the ageing process and to increase our quality of life. In fact all the things you can do to optimize your health is exactly what you need to be doing to prolong your life:
- A healthy diet; reduce calories & metabolize your sugars
- Boost your immune system
- Reduce free radicals with antioxidants
- Exercise the Brain
- Exercise the Body
- Detox regularly, including intestinal, liver, blood, and heavy metals
- If you smoke, stop. Smoking shortens life and makes you look older
The key is to understand that if you want to slow the ageing process, you have to look at more than a magic bullet approach involving one or two supplements. To be successful, you need to do everything all at once to assist in the natural anti-ageing process. This is not easy to do on your own and this is exactly where an anti-ageing program at a wellness clinic can help.
The main objective of the majority of the anti-ageing programs is disease prevention and maintaining quality of life be managing the ageing process. It is a modern preventive medicine approach based on proactive monitoring, early detection and prevention of the risk factors and lifestyle habits that are harmful to one’s health.
The goal is the implementation of a long lasting Personalized Health Plan which accommodates your physical and emotional requirements. Basic wellbeing tips and therapies from part of an anti-ageing program, followed by an extensive personal health assessment aimed at a proactive detection and monitoring of imbalances, dysfunctions and risk factors.
The majority of the rejuvenation programs also include a method to purify and rebalance your body by activating its potential physical and mental energy. The changes experienced demonstrate the enormous natural ability of our body when we know how to stimulate it and help it restore an ideal state of health.
A good anti-ageing program aims at achieving amazing results by stopping the ageing process on both the inside and out, following the objective of avoiding risks to your body and temporary solutions that can bring unfortunate consequences later, as well as teaching habits to maintain this for the rest of your life.
By following an anti-ageing program, you may not prevent getting older, but you could control how you age. These principles can not only help you prevent and reverse catastrophic illness, but the signs and symptoms of ageing as well!
