Anti aging therapy is one of the fastest growing areas of medicine in the world.
It is important to know the truths from the myths when it comes to your body.
For starters, there’s not a magic pill, or secret formula that will completely reverse
the affects of time. There are however, therapies available that have been proven
to show evidence of anti aging effects. It should strongly be understood that anti
aging therapy is not a substitute for diet and exercise.
Eating the right foods is important to slowing the aging process. Foods that you
eat are digested by your body and create energy, this energy lets your body create
free radicals. These free radicals, in turn, facilitate disease and aging. Your
body counters this process with antioxidants. Vitamins, minerals and enzymes are
also part of the digestive process. It’s believed that antioxidants prevent diseases
that damage the heart and facilitate diabetes. These antioxidants come from fruits
and vegetables, as well as supplemental vitamins. While a healthy diet will extend
life, it will not completely halt the aging process.
Hormone Replacement, the replacement of aging hormones is a popular theory that
many in the medical community believe will slow, halt, or reverse the aging process.
DHEA, short for dehydropiandrosterone, is the most common androgenic hormone the
adrenal glands produce. When you’re born, DHEA levels are at their highest, and
they slowly decline throughout your life. Through research, science has discovered
methods to replace your natural DHEA with synthetic hormone that can have realistic
results on muscle mass and your immune system.
There are other anti aging supplements that include Testosterone that has the ability
to increase daily energy and overall sex drive. Another is Melatonin, which helps
regulate your sleep and enhances sexuality. Human Growth Hormone, which helps burn
fat, build muscle, and increases energy.
Of course, there is no uniform ‘one size fits all’ treatment. A medical consultation
is needed to determine which appropriate doses are necessary for each patient. Medical
professionals must diagnose and determine which shortage levels require the most
