It’s the new age of medicine that has raised the hopes of anyone who wishes to live longer and feel better.
In the past, the ideal was to extend one’s life span by 10 years, from age 60 to 70. But today, assuming one embraces a wellness lifestyle, 100 becomes the new 70. Here are answers to some of your most frequently asked questions.
I read somewhere that aging is a disease and not a natural biological occurrence. Is this true?
The proponents of anti-aging seriously believe that aging is a disease. And like all diseases, it has a cure. Through several approaches, one can treat aging. It can be dramatically delayed and in some cases, reversed.
While it seems that our biological clocks are ticking too fast and hastening the deterioration of the body, there should be no cause for alarm. As the years pass into the late 20s, the human body begins decreasing its production of vital hormones which are the hallmark of youthfulness.
This is when the advice of anti-aging experts and the prescription for living they prescribe can offer a patient a new lease on life. Aging is a condition. And like all conditions, it can be treated.
What would you recommend as a natural anti-aging regimen?
There are numerous approaches to delaying the aging process, from the simplest to the most elaborate. But all regimens have one foundation in common—a healthy lifestyle.
Here are the steps:
1. Have a complete medical checkup by your doctor.
2. Ask for a special hormone test, including thyroid tests, to check your levels of estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisol, melatonin, DHEA, thyroid hormones. Better yet, consult an endocrinologist.
3. If you are not living a wellness lifestyle, it’s time for:
A healthy vegetable/ fruit-rich diet (decrease animal meat intake, especially red meat)
Six to eight hours of sleep
Maximum hydration— drink eight to 15 glasses of clean water daily
Stress management via meditation/prayer time and balance of work and rest
Try using specific creams and consumption of tablets based on your hormone profile
Daily therapy of the food supplement/growth hormone from the US, a plant-based nano-spray sublingual regimen that increases energy, libido, better complexion and sleep, as well as speeds up metabolism resulting in weight loss.

Can the mind age the body?
Definitely. Read Dr. Deepak Chopra’s book, “Ageless Body, Timeless Mind,” which says that we can speed up the aging process by thinking it.
In truth, the most vital anti-aging component of who we are is the mind. Our unregulated thoughts can become so negative that they can literally poison every cell in the body, thereby creating an acidic and disease-friendly environment.
According to Chopra, there has to be a paradigm shift in our mental programming. Life-affirming, positive thoughts create a healthy, more youthful body. The opposite is true when negative thoughts are involved. Negativity invites acidity. Positivity invites alkalinity. Viruses and bacteria cannot survive in an alkaline environment.
The same truth applies to the spoken word. Whatever it is we affirm for ourselves will affect the body. Example: A person wakes up in the morning, looks at herself/himself in the mirror and declares, “I’m getting old.”
This mental programming has devastating results. A message is sent to every cell in the body to “get old.”
The challenge: drive away every negative thought by replacing them with positive ones. Soon enough, you will look and feel positive. Try it. Then watch the transformation in you.
