Ageing in itself, is not a disease, it is a natural part of life. The ageing process in our bodies continues throughout our lives and over time, increases the chances of suffering from degenerative conditions. Ageing can lead to a reduction in our physical and mental functioning and contribute to the onset of chronic disease. Adopting a healthy ageing lifestyle can help slow the pace of accelerated ageing, so that you live a long, healthy and happy life.
A healthy ageing lifestyle requires optimal nutrition through a healthy diet and lifestyle. It is the insurance you need to keep you healthy and vital for years to come. Subtle changes to your health can be identified and addressed using natural options before chronic symptoms have time to manifest.
Wherever you are on the journey of life, there are opportunities to slow down the ageing process. You can take preventative measure to reduce your risk of premature ageing and fight degenerative diseases.
Metabolic syndrome is now recognized to be a leading risk factor driving some of the most serious diseases in modern society. How do you know if you have metabolic syndrome? You may have been diagnosed with some of the following:
- High blood pressure
- Diabetes or “pre diabetes” (at risk for diabetes)
- High Triglycerides
- Low “good” HDL Cholesterol
- Carrying extra weight around your waist or a “beer gut”
- Family history of diabetes, heart disease or stroke
