As the number of candles on our birthday cake increases, so does the number of potential health issues that we need to be proactive to prevent. The biggest and most worrisome issue with aging is the increased likelihood of chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, arthritis and diabetes. Decreased quality of life associated with ‘aging’ include fatigue, weight gain, poor memory and brain fog.
No one wants to look ‘elderly’. In our society age is not associated with wisdom and knowledge, but sluggishness and inefficiency. In a perfect world, we would age with dignity and grace; unfortunately, this is not our reality. At the first signs of grey we make a trip to the hairdresser to hide our little secret. We live in a society where youth is glorified, and our seniors are no longer cherished, and more often than not, ‘put out to pasture’. Changing societies perception would be our ideal, but in the meantime, ensuring self-confidence and self-esteem can be just as important in prevention as prevention of inner aging issues, as one can easily lead to the other.
At Naturopathic Living, we treat the whole person, and happily, outer beauty is considerably enhanced when inner beauty is properly addressed. Even some plastic surgeons have started to turn to IV cocktails for outer beauty as high levels of Vitamin C and other components can address skin issues such as sagging, sallow, grey skin, age spots, dull eyes, fatigue, low energy, wrinkles and memory loss. We have created a comprehensive aging prevention program, addressing both inside and out, that is customized to meet your individual needs.
