Stress management:

Supplements and Hormones:

 

Providing elements, supplements the body needs to function efficiently is key to keeping premature aging. 

As we age and as we are exposed to a toxic environment in the form of the air we breath, the fluids we drink or foods we eat 

essential elements, supplements we need to maintain a fluid and well balanced metabolic and cellular activity become depleted, being able to replace them in a timely fashion becomes very important in staying vibrant and healthy.

The accepted narrative is that as we age our hormone levels go down. In antisging medicine the view is quite the opposite. We age because our hormones become depleted. The less hormones we have to participate in metabolic activities essential to life, the less healthy we become. 

 

In essence, life style modification, refueling the body with essential supplements, foods, hormones when low

and managing stress and intervening early, medically when stress results in somatic manifestation and incorporating regular exercise, avoiding toxins will lead to a longer, healthier, happier life
