Overview

Center-For-Health-Science-Anti-AgingAging refers to the accumulation of changes in a person over time, including physical, social and psychological changes. Illness is not necessarily a part of aging, although sickness often is a result of lifestyle choices, poor nutrition, a degraded food supply system, environmental toxins and pathogen exposure. All of these factors include inflammation, a natural process meant to preserve good health but increasingly being seen as the root of most disorders including diabetes, dementias, cardiovascular problems, impairments to sleep and distortion of mood. Healthy aging starts early in life and involves reducing our exposure to aging factors and keeping our immune system reacting optimally.

Conventional, allopathic medicine recognizes the causes of unhealthy aging but is given the charge of treating the symptoms and diseases that are the aftermath of these exposures. Recent government efforts have been made to promote prevention, although our model of healthcare does not provide financial incentives for this. Western Naturopathy and Traditional Chinese Medicine, alternatively, focus on preservation of health and prevention of illness.


Natural Treatment Approaches


Western Naturopathic Approach: 
CHS believes Wellness and healthy aging is best achieved through a combination of dietary management, natural treatments for inflammation and disease prevention, regular laboratory testing, regular physical exercise and nurturance of emotional health.

Proper nutrition often requires more than a well-designed natural diet. Physical conditions, genetics, medicines we take, lifestyle and environmental exposures deplete specific nutrients. Stress is a particularly significant contributor to premature aging.  Exercise and social support are vital to maintaining a healthy psychological outlook, although our modern world seems to make an unhealthy level of stress inevitable.

Our immune system is called on to clear our bodies of invaders, harmful chemicals and pollutants. Inflammation is a natural part of this process, making it possible for immune components to recognize invaders. Optimal aging calls for minimizing exposure to inflammatory agents as well as making certain specific nutrients are available to support a healthy response.

We believe everyone, young and old, should take a basic group of specific nutrients daily for optimal wellness. Additional nutrients may be needed to nurture our adrenal glands, the gatekeepers for stress management, and for supporting all of our endocrine system. These nutrients are not found in adequate quantities or appropriate forms in multivitamins and CHS does not recommend any such poor compromise.

Wellness also requires that we be aware of early signs and symptoms of imbalances and that we NOT discount an ache or pain as being just a result of aging.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has a long history of exploring aging issues. From a TCM standpoint, aging is a process of losing kidney qi and essence. Kidney here is not just the anatomic entity of the two kidneys we have in our lower backs but an energy subsystem called the kidney meridian. Kidney qi and essence is seen as responsible for brain development and function, including hearing, bone matrix, and function of bone marrows, sexual function and capacity to conceive, and regulation of the urinary tract and the bowels. This meridian reflects the mental functions of will power and motivation and emotions derived from fear.

The speed of aging is proportional to the strength of kidney energy. If Kidney Qi is strong, aging does not occur quickly. The principle of oriental medical anti-aging treatment is to tonify and regulate Kidney Qi and in turn, enhance the immune system and prevent aging.

CHS recommends 4 steps in your approach to wellness and slowing the effects of aging:
1. IDENTIFY: Take a complete inventory of symptoms. Often, seemingly unrelated symptoms can help identify causes and guide lab and treatment strategies.
2. TEST: Have a complete physical and specific tests needed to catch issues early.
3. EAT a healthy diet and lead a healthy lifestyle. Certain nutrients are less available in our foods due to modern farming methods. Additional nutrients are needed to combat environmental pollution and the stress of modern life. Participate in vigorous exercise every day.
4. CHOOSE a Natural Product that matches your beliefs, physical issues and symptoms.

Steps to Slow Aging

CHS has studied the science of anti-aging and offers the following steps for improving your life:

  • Have medical lab testing on a regular basis to look for early symptoms.
  • Don’t take symptoms for granted! Aches, pains, forgetfulness and rapid physical decline ARE NOT a normal part of life.  make a list and bring it with you to your healthcare professional.
  • Maintain a healthy weight. Gaining and retaining excess weight has been linked to low grade food intolerances, especially milk protein allergy and grain intolerance. Testing is available to help identify intolerances although they give many false positive and false negative results. Consider a food rotation and elimination diet as part of a program to good health. Click Here for a guide to elimination dieting.
  • CHS has not found any safe and reliable weight loss supplements, although weight issues are commonly caused by an underactive thyroid or other systemic dysfunction. Click: Thyroid Disorders for more information.
  • Eat a healthy diet. Avoid processed foods and artificial ingredients, colorings, flavorings, preservatives, “conditioners,” chemical thickeners and other substances that have no purpose in your body. Buy organic. Wash vegetables and fruit with an organic “veggie wash.”
  • Eliminate environmental pollutants. Use natural cleaners and avoid artificial perfumes. Do not use chemical “air fresheners.” Use HEPA filters and consider a whole house HEPA filter for your heating system.
  • Select supplements to meet your body’s unique needs. The USDA, Health Canada and the European Food Safety Authority all agree that significant nutritional deficiencies and common, even when eating a “balanced” diet. CHS finds little value in “multivitamins” and recommends a targeted nutrition/supplement approach to anti-aging. CHS has identified the most commonly deficient nutrients and have included them in the CHS Wellness Package.
  • Exercise daily!
  • Protect your skin from the effects of aging. Have periodic “skin inspections” from a competent dermatologist. Use safe moisturizes free of parabens and other chemicals. Don’t overdo sun exposure.
  • Take control of your health! Before taking any drug look up the “prescriber’s information” for yourself and review Internet information on both the benefits and risks from use. Discuss your concerns, but do not let them be dismissed out of hand.  Find a reliable Naturopath or other Natural Health Care Specialist and seek advice BEFORE starting prescription chemicals. for referral for a qualified Healthcare Specialist in your area.
  • Select additional anti-aging supplements to make up for nutritional deficiencies caused by diet and to replace nutrients which may be depleted by drugs and health conditions.Please visit HealthNotes.us for guidance.

Dietary Management

Wellness is a state where one is not only free from disease but also physically and emotionally capable of participating in activities which bring a sense of joy and accomplishment. CHS believes a state of wellness is best achieved through a combination of dietary management, nutritional supplementation, natural treatments for inflammation and disease prevention, regular laboratory testing, regular physical exercise and nurturance of emotional health.

Genetic variations between individuals, even within one family, impact your ability to absorb certain nutrients; we have differing environmental and toxic exposures; we have differing sensitivity to particular foods and chemicals. These factors impact wellness.

  • No single diet works for everyone. Studies have found that “yo-yo” dieting is actually harmful and makes it increasingly difficult to maintain your ideal weight.
  • Watch your calorie intake and understand carbohydrates (i.e. simple and complex) and how they change when food is cooked differently (e.g. boiled, grilled etc.).
  • We are omnivores and can derive the bulk of our dietary needs from either plant or animal food sources. Vegetarianism is wrong for some genetic types. Excess protein intake is harmful to others. Supplementation may be critical for certain diets.
  • Always choose organic and avoid all processed foods. Avoid saturated and hydrogenated fats–instead choose mono-unsaturated fats, the good oils include olive, canola, sesame, sunflower and walnut.
  • Avoid foods that trigger excitotoxins, particularly aspartame and monosodium glutamate. Avoid eating the same things all the time to reduce your chance of developing hypersensitivities.
  • Lower your exogenous estrogen exposure and toxin levels by not cooking anything in plastic containers or covering heated foods with plastic wraps (also avoid freezing in them).
  • Control blood sugar, salt intake and calories. Consider the glycemic index when making food decisions.
