anti-aging naturopathic medicine
Anti-Aging Health is an emerging branch of interest within the broad field of medicine, which truly identifies and encompasses one of the major principles of Naturopathic Medicine - Prevention.
Often, we think of anti-aging strategies for aesthetic therapies and enhancing physical features. Anti-aging health also encompasses preventative strategies in a variety of health areas including: healthy hormones, digestive health, cancer, neurological/brain health, skin health, cardiovascular health, environmental health, and more. It explores the health of our cells and translates that to outer health and beauty.
Why anti-aging naturopathic strategies? Because, we know that our environment (diet, lifestyle and more) can affect the expression of our genes. Anti-aging integrative medicine helps us to understand how epigenetic factors can potentially reduceinflammation, oxidative damage and cellular degeneration. Although we can change the expression of some genes, we cannot change the expression of all. And so, learning about your family history and your own personal health can help guide decisions we make in our lives.
