LONGEVITY SECRETS- How to slow down the ageing process

Wellness Wednesday: LONGEVITY SECRETS- How to slow down the ageing processAgeing healthily and with vitality is a goal most of us would like to achieve. However, we often don’t take care of ourselves enough to reach this goal. Let’s be honest, none of us want to face a horrible and painful end to our lives, and yet we continue to adopt living practices which speed up the process of body decay. Maybe we don’t know any better, or maybe we just want to feel good temporarily, but the sooner we begin to treat our bodies well, the more we will gain from it.

It’s like a bank – the more you put into it (and the sooner), the more it will leave you with at the end.

Although deteriorating health is a part of life as we age, promoting vitality and longevity is possible if you have the education and motivation to acquire it. Your age needn’t limit you from experiencing a full vibrant life if you take measures to stay young on the inside.

Prolonging longevity and healthy ageing is a multi-faceted approach so the more you do, the better you will be. Adequate nutrition, stress reduction, detoxification, lifestyle adaptations, weight management and natural modalities to boost your system needs to become part of your norm.

Aging happens to us all, most of the time faster than we’d like. Fortunately, youth is not how old we are in years, it’s how old we are in health. The sooner we start viewing health as a lifestyle instead of merely the absence of disease, the sooner we can enjoy all the energy and vitality that is available to us, and live a long and happy life.

So, how old are you really?

As shown on Channel 9′s A Current Affair, Dawn Fraser was shocked by her results. Her biological age was about 20 years older than her actual age.

The amazing technology which revealed Dawn’s shocking results is available here at Paddington Clinic.

Bio Impedance Analysis (BIA) uses advanced technology to assess vital aspects of your body’s health including percentage of body fat and cellular age.

This test is simple and pain free, small electrodes are attached to your hands and feet, the results are entered into our computer for analysis and in less than 5 minutes your results are available.

The first figure we look at are how quickly your internal cells are ageing. If you’re 43 years old, how old is your body really?  Some people are as shocked as Dawn Fraser was.

The next set of figures we take a look at is how much fat your body is holding onto.  If your fat is over 35% it is an early warning of potential for more serious health problems down the track.

These figures can then assist us to advise you on how to best support the building blocks of your body so that maximum health and energy are yours to enjoy. The basis of natural medicine is the concept of preventative medicine, i.e. adopting living practices which prevent the breakdown of the body, and the malfunctioning of body cells.  No matter what age you are, natural therapies assists in preventing the breakdown of cells and tissues, providing you with optimal nutrition and boosting the vitality of your cells and internal organs.

People who may benefit from a BIA analysis include those who want to:

  • Manage their weight more effectively
  • Increase muscle tone and fitness
  • Improve energy levels
  • Age healthily, and
  • Support the nutrition and health of their body

You can get a BIA analysis on its own at the clinic, or as part of our unique Wellness Assessment. Click here to learn more about our Wellness Assessment.
