As we make the choice of an ageless lifestyle to live longer, we search for ways to slow down the effects of aging. Many people use creams and gels or go as far as getting surgery in order to keep their youthful appearance.
When it comes to being ageless, there is a holistic approach to anti-aging.
Holistic medicine, along with cutting edge anti-aging scientists, treat the underlying cause for the problem along with the symptoms and changes in appearance aging creates.
The skin is the largest organ in the human body and is easily impacted by day-to-day factors. The truth is you can’t have good skin if you are not eating right, getting enough sleep, or if you’re under a lot of stress.
Inflammation and Free Radicals
Understanding that free radicals cause inflammation in the body is very important because inflammation is a big part of what causes us to age and also what causes many diseases. Free radicals occur naturally and if your body does not get enough antioxidants to fight the free radicals they are free to go about the body and do their damage.
Damage caused by free radicals can be stopped by eating antioxidant rich foods or taking supplements such as vitamin C, CoQ10, Zinc, and Magnesium.
Water is also an important factor if you want to slow the signs of aging. Your ageless body is made mostly of water and if you allow it to dehydrate you will see more wrinkles. Ensuring that you get enough water will also ensure that your skin retains its elasticity over time.
Using holistic medicine to maintain proper circulation is also very important when it comes to slowing down the aging process. Your entire body relies on proper circulation and without it you will quickly see your body start to age and break down.
How Holistic Medicine Works
There are reasons why one person would age faster than another and it’s those reasons that are treated with holistic medicine. You can’t separate the health of your skin, your mind and your body. It must be treated as a whole.
The chances of you reducing the signs of aging by simply focusing on your skin are slim. If you focus on your entire body ensuring that you are physically, mentally, and spiritually healthy you will see that you quickly reduce the signs of aging. You will be on your way to becoming ageless.
Reversing the Signs of Aging
One of the ways you can reverse the signs of aging is to ensure that your body is getting enough essential fatty acids. Each cell must have essential fatty acids in order to function properly. Essential fatty acids will help to nourish the skin as well as provide tone. You can find essential fatty acids in foods such as leafy greens, walnuts, fish oils and flax seed oil.
Physical activity is also an important factor when it comes to reversing or slowing down the aging process. Our bodies are made to move and physical exercise can help to raise your metabolism as well as reduce your weight. Ensuring that you’re not stressing your body by causing it to carry around extra weight is very important if you want to slow down the signs of aging.
By adding exercise and good quality supplements to your daily routine, as well as ensuring you are getting enough water, sleep and keeping stress levels at a minimum you can help to reduce the signs of aging.
The best way to be ageless, and look refreshed and youthful, is to focus on your body as a whole. Make sure you’re in the best health possible instead of focusing on the symptom of aging. This way you’ll be sure to keep your youthful appearance for years to come.
