The human body needs three things to exist – and yet those same three things can work against our effort to live better longer. We all need oxygen, energy and blood. Our bodies have sophisticated systems to ensure energy metabolism, oxygenation of our tissues and organs and a blood pressure system to transport the nutrients throughout the body.
As we age, these vital life processes can work against us. Blood pressure comes under scrutiny when we are diagnosed with hypertension. Excess oxidation ages the body more rapidly and glucose becomes a serious concern because elevated levels are associated with the onset of type 2 diabetes.
When was the last time you had your blood pressure taken? Have you had a comprehensive physical that includes blood panels, bone density, body composition, resting metabolic rate, telomere testing, hormone panels, a stress test? You may have had one or even a few of these done recently. Most likely the tests were ordered to see how sick you are.
What if you had these tests done to see how well you are aging? Your results were used as a comprehensive look at you and your body systems as a whole? You and your doctor set out a plan or prescription for wellbeing that helped you live better longer? Your daily routine included the exact nutritional supplements that your body needs to fight oxidative stress, maintain stable blood glucose levels and optimal pressure? You set out on a wellness path that includes regular testing to monitor your progress and updates your plan as your body changes with time?
This is the science behind wellness and regenerative medicine. It’s about testing and analysis and lifestyle changes and dedication to feeling really good most every day. It’s not new age hocus pocus and a long list of strange herbs and tinctures. It’s real medicine applied to your whole being. That’s the only novelty: wellness and regenerative medicine is about you, all of you, today, tomorrow, and well into the future.
