Optimal Aging

We all go through the aging process.

I consider myself an “optimal aging” practitioner not an anti-aging one.

What does that mean?

As we age, there is general wear and tear on the body.

Muscles are affected by a process called sarcopenia which entails loss of muscle mass and stiff joints.

We look into the mirror and see changes in our skin such as wrinkles and sagging.

In my opinion, these are all manifestations of inflammation and the toxic burden we accumulate as we age. Toxicity is everywhere in our lives.

Inflammation is a part of life and helpful when it is short lived.

However, it is chronic inflammation that causes these degenerative changes.

The food we consume, the water we drink, the air we breathe, all contribute to a toxic soup.

Optimal aging and living a long and productive life are dependent on reducing inflammation and lowering our toxic burden.

That is how I conduct my own life and that is the focus of how I work with patients who desire an optimal aging and healthy life.
