Anti-Aging and Bioidentical Hormone Replacement
In order to truly ”defy time”, we need to better understand the process of aging. Advances in medical science have identified many processes that accelerate aging; and the onset of the diseases of aging, Anti-aging medicine is devoted to improving the quality and quantity of the human lifespan.
This area of medicine has shown that aging of the body occurs because levels of hormones decline. The body becomes inflamed and can develop many of the diseases that we dread, such as: cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, heart attacks/ heart disease and arthritis. Our body needs good vitamin and mineral levels, as well as healthy and wholesome food to nourish our cells. This promotes good hormone balance and a low level of inflammation.

Anti Aging & Your Hormones
Anti-Aging medicine is focused on only two goals: helping extend the quality of human life, and helping extend the length of human life. Advances in medical science have identified many processes that accelerate aging or the onset of the diseases of aging. “Anti-aging medicine” is dedicated to improving both the quality and quantity of the human lifespan.
Although it’s been practised for decades in various forms, anti-aging is considered a relatively new field in medicine. We entered this field to enable us in helping you keep your body fit, healthy and in perfect balance so you can live a longer, healthier and more productive life.
Stress Accelerates Aging
Adrenal Fatigue, the 21st century stress syndrome, is most important to your health and longevity. At Better – A Medical Centre for Complete Living, we specialize in helping you learn how to protect yourself from stress. You will learn how to block the effects of stress on your body and mind. You can not eliminate stress but you can learn how to modify it. Life feels so much better when you learn how to experience stress differently and perceive stress in a whole new way.
”When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change” Dr. Wayne Dyer.
In medical terms, this condition could be called ‘hypoadrenia’ or ‘subclinial hypocorticolism’. This means that your body is producing suboptimal, but not low levels of stress coping and life sustaining hormones. This condition actually explains why so many people are confronted by normal lab test results when they know something is truly wrong and feel anything but normal.
The 5 F Words:
These five words can be the hardest words to hear in a family doctor’s office… because of the difficulty of fixing them and that can lead to the sixth F word – FRUSTRATION – on the part of both the doctor and the patient!
Specialized testing called saliva testing is very useful in demonstrating hypocorticolism (adrenal fatigue). This test can help save your life. The test results provide information that can help extend your longevity, because adrenal fatigue resulting from stress can accelerate aging and diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and even cancer.
Longevity – Not Just Luck
Some groups of people live longer and have a much lower incidence of disease like cancer and heart disease, than other groups. For example, in Okinawa, Japan, the type of food eaten and the hormone balance of these people is very different from most North Americans. But if you live as they do: eating wholesome foods without processing and additives, keeping a low body fat percentage, experiencing less stress and more physical activity on a regular basis – you will also enjoy better health, fewer diseases and a longer life.
Anti- Aging, Hormones And The Fountain of Youth
When your hormone levels decline, your body can become inflamed and develop many of the diseases we dread such as cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease and arthritis. Your body requires good vitamin and mineral levels as well as healthy and wholesome food to nourish your cells. This promotes good hormone balance and a low level of inflammation – the key to renewing your vitality and regaining your energy. Your risk for these diseases is highly influenced by nutrition and hormones. But you can help slow down aging, achieve your ideal weight, lower stress and prevent disease by paying very close attention to your nutrition and hormone balance.
Competitive edge, mental agility, mood, stamina, sex drive, muscle mass, weight and sleep are all influenced by nutrition and hormone balance.
