Anti Aging Systems That Turn Back The Clock 10-20 Years

The human body is often referred to as a “soft machine”. The original reference was a tribute, in part, to the ability of the body to function like a machine in so many ways. The skeletal structure supports the muscles and tendons that allow our bodies to maneuver our way through life, powered by a sophisticated fuel system and driven by a highly complex super-computer. Indeed, machines have  been modeled after the workings of the human body since the days of Leonardo Da Vinci, and most likely before then.

However, the important (and critical) difference between the human body and fabricated machinery is the fact that our bodies are not constructed of materials that have a half-life measured in hundreds of years. The body is made of organic material, which by its very nature begins to decompose the instant it is created unless it is replenished and regenerated.

This applies to every cell, tissue, muscle, bone, tooth, and hair that makes up a person’s physical being. Each and every part of the human anatomy begins its journey to obsolescence the moment the fetus forms. This may seem to be a gloomy observation, but in fact the organic essence that is the human body provides the greatest opportunity for the rebuilding and rejuvenating that can not only ensure and prolong a state of well-being, but can actually slow down and reverse those very same conditions as well.

Does this seem possible? Is life extension a myth? Can a person really turn back the clock, or is it just science fiction, like in H.G. Wells’ classic tale, “The Time Machine”?

Good News
In fact, the prospect of changing the way in which your body ages is very possible. No, it’s not science fiction - it’s science fact. Our general knowledge of human biology has advanced to such a point that illness and disease are more understood now than they ever were. The medical community is addressing the underlying causes of disorder and dysfunction instead of merely treating their symptoms. The wealth of information about just what makes our bodies tick is available not just to internists, oncologists, pediatricians, clinitians and nutritionists. Anyone with basic reading and comprehension skills can access the universal research library that is the Internet and unlock the mystery of their own existence.

And this is good news, indeed. How many years, how many decades, how many centuries have we sat in the waiting room and anxiously awaited the verdict of the trusted man or woman in the white coat or the wizard‘s robe? How many families have pondered the meaning of life as they bid their last goodbye to a loved one who was “too young to die”? How many times have you, yourself, looked in the mirror and wondered, “How did I get to be so old, so soon”?

It doesn’t have to be that way. Not anymore. There is nothing holding you back from regaining the vitality and glowing health of your younger days. If you’re one of the millions of fortunate people who are not afflicted by disease or chronic illness, you have total access to the secrets that have been eluding most of mankind since the beginning of time. In fact, you can return your body to a state of well-being even if you do have a disorder or a chronic condition, in many cases.

This is not some fairy tale or “fountain of youth” fable. This is the plain, unvarnished truth, backed by documented scientific studies, a new awareness of the power of natural elements to maintain good health, and the stories of the hundreds and thousands, if not millions, of people who have discovered the path to an honest state of optimum health. The good news? You can start right now.

What is the Aging Process?
The reality of aging, in the physiological context, refers to the body’s inability to regenerate its structure, systems, and processes that it began with. This is perhaps an over-simplified way to express it, but simplicity is at the core of a logical approach to anti-aging. The mechanisms by which your body manifests itself may be complex, but the methods by which these functions can be maintained and even improved are, in fact, relatively simple.

Think of anti-aging as a banking transaction or managing a stock portfolio, if you will. You begin with a certain amount in a bank account or an investment fund. You use those assets for different reasons, whatever they may be. If you don’t make subsequent deposits, the assets will disappear and the account will be closed. The answer: make sure to replenish the funds with legal tender, and you can go on banking or trading as long as the building in which the bank or investment company resides is still standing.

Is that too simple for you? Here’s another one. You probably own a vehicle of some kind. If you bought it when it was brand new, you remember the way it handled, the way it smelled, the sense of ease and care-free driving it offered. What would happen if you drove this fine new machine every day for 5 or 6 years without practicing preventative maintenance, such as changing the oil or doing a tune-up?

The Nuts and Bolts of Anti-Aging
So you understand that your body is an organic machine that requires regular re-fueling and maintenance, which of course includes keeping everything clean. What does this “soft machine” need to keep running the way it used to, without replacing the parts? Where do I find it? Is it expensive? Who has it?

Good questions all, and fairly easy to answer. The truth is that the fight against the aging process can be a natural by-product of proper routine maintenance of your body. This would include food and other nutritional elements, exercise, and a mental attitude that says, “I am determined to feel and look younger”. All of these factors are available to anyone, whether they have internet access or not. Some anti-aging products can seem a little pricey at first, but if you weigh the cost of extended health care for chronic illnesses or diseases that could have been avoided through better personal attention against a few extra dollars a week for anti-aging products, what’s more expensive?

So let’s look at the basic elements that are available for your anti-aging program.

Food and Nutrition
Remember the food pyramid? This famous diagram of the five basic food groups (six, if you include oils and “other foods”) was an attempt by the government to inform the public about what was needed every day to ensure better health. It was a good start. The basics of dietary intake - meats, dairy, breads, fruits, and vegetables - do in fact provide nearly all of the essential elements that a body needs to stay healthy and to retain its vigor, agility, and endurance.

A newer version of the food pyramid has shown up in recent years, in response to a growing public interest in diets that are lower in fat and processed foods. It is basically the same as the original, but with some refinements in the description of the food groups. For instance, meats are leaner and beans are emphasized more, bread changes to whole grains and fiber, dairy is recommended to be low-fat, fruits focus on pulp more than juice, and vegetables are preferably green and more raw than cooked. But the old truth is still relevant. We can get the essential nutrients we need from these basic food groups.

Nearly every nutrient that you need to fight the aging process is available in the foods that you eat. Meats are full of protein and minerals, vegetables and fruits provide vitamins, minerals, fiber, enzymes, and antioxidants, and grains have fiber and elements that can restore the bacterial balance that is so necessary to continued cell and tissue regeneration and stability. When you’re planning next week’s meals, sit down and do some research about the nutrients you need to fight aging, and get creative. Think about anti-aging supplements and herbs, too. Some people have special nutritional needs that can’t always be addressed by diet. There are literally thousands of organic compounds and extracts that can provide the elements you need to keep your body not only working to its highest potential, but even at a level you haven’t seen for many years.

The New Medical Approach to Fighting Aging
The discoveries and advancements in recent years concerning the biological matrix that defines the processes of the human body have inspired a new, more proactive approach to aging. There is now an increasing number of anti aging medical professionals, and a growing body of scientific evidence, that support those methods of diagnosis and treatment that address the root causes of underlying conditions that accelerate aging.

As a result, there are more anti-aging medicines available today that can help restore our ability to fight infections and disease while returning the vigor, stamina, and overall well-being that is attainable when the body works to its utmost capability. These medicines address not only existing debilitative conditions, but the proper processing of nutrients and other elements that will guarantee anyone of any age the longest and healthiest life possible.

Hormones are now recognized as a major part of aging. The human growth hormone (HGH), produced by the pituitary gland, contains 191 amino acids, which are essential to metabolism and cell production. HGH produces a protein in the liver known as Insulin-like Growth Factor. These two elements work together to maintain healthy muscle tissue, strong skeletal structure, and skin integrity. A synthesized growth hormone has been developed that can support HGH functions and increase the body‘s regenerative capabilities.

Skin Care and Anti-Aging
How we look has a lot to do with how we feel. Call it vanity, call it foolishness, but it’s undeniable. And it’s not as far-fetched and superfluous as it sounds. Our overall health has a lot to do with our emotional well-being. So, if you look in the mirror and see the person you knew 5, 10, or even 20 years ago, you’re bound to get a charge. That charge is a rush of adrenaline and other natural stimulants that your body creates when it is running up to its potential.

There are many good anti aging skin care products that can help rejuvenate the skin and repair any damage that has been done by natural and man-made elements. The best of these skin care products are made with natural nutrients that only serve to support and strengthen the collagen and cellular structure of your skin. There are even skin care creams and other products that can make those “age spots” disappear within a fairly short time.

The best natural ingredients that are available in many skin creams are as follows: retinol, a vitamin A compound that acts as an antioxidant to promote healthy cell generation in the skin (a prescription cream that contains the vitamin A derivative known as tretinoin is also very effective); coenzyme Q10 is a nutrient that has been found to reduce wrinkling; copper peptides, which are protein fragments that contain trace elements of copper, a beneficial element for skin care; kinetin, a plant derivative that helps skin retain moisture and stimulates collagen production.

Your Youth is Waiting
Now that you have a head start on what you need to do to fight the aging process, you can begin to develop your own game plan. Start reading books and magazines, start going online and researching not only the products that are available, but the nutrients and other elements that make these wonderful products work so well.
