This month, Dr. Robert True held a seminar on nutritional aids and supplements to improve your health and potentially to increase your lifespan. Everyone wants to know, “What type of vitamins and supplements should I take?” Well, here’s a good start.

You should indeed practice “Anti-Aging” actions. These are actions you can do today to decrease the risk of developing degenerative processes within your body. Medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, and many others can decrease your quality of life and shorten your lifespan. If there are simple solutions to preventing these, why not embrace them.

The leading causes of death were discussed, and these include heart disease, cancer, and a number of other processes. Most of all of these medical problems have inflammatory components to them. The biggest killer in the cancer group is lung cancer.

Smoking cessation is a top priority. It can reduce your risk of developing not only lung cancer, but also cancer of the colon, pancreas, and bladder. Heart disease is also decreased. This is a simple and sometimes easy fix, to improve your health. There are many options to quit smoking, but the ultimate decision must be in your mind.

Getting rid of extra weight, especially if you’re obese, is the next step. Obesity is now considered the leading cause of cancer, outnumbering those caused by smoking. It can increase your risk of cancers of the breast, prostate, colon, pancreas, ovary, uterus, liver, and bladder. It also increases your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, and arthritic conditions. Weight loss to a normal weight is essential to become healthier.

Maintaining a good balance of hormones is also important for preventive health plus it can improve your quality of life. Hormone therapy and Weight loss concepts have been discussed in prior seminars and can be viewed on the web. Go to the links to learn about these concepts further.

There are several concepts of aging that enable us to utilize nutritional aids for better health, as was discussed during the nutritional aids seminar. Antioxidants, anti-inflammatory products, telomerase activators, and simply supplements with impressive preventive statistics have all been shown to improve your health. This improvement may be from decreases in cancers, heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and many others.

There are laboratory tests available to you that can help you see if you are deficient in many of these compounds. You may want to get evaluated so that you know in what components your body is deficient. Taking supplements is essential since our American diet and food sources have become less healthy and less nutritious over time.

The latest concept of aging is telomere shortening. The telomere is the end part of each chromosome (DNA). Every time almost every cell in your body reproduces itself, its telomere shortens. After many replications, the telomere is so short it doesn’t work anymore and the cell dies. It has “aged” to its max. Science has discovered many ways to help prevent this shortening from occurring.

Longer telomeres have been associated with longevity and better health. Coincidentally, boosting your antioxidant level, improving your immunity, and taking new telomerase compounds, all prevent the shortening of your telomeres. If you want to live a healthier, happier, and longer life, you should consider supplementing your diet with these. Click here or the photo above to see the first part of this seminar.

A basic recommendation for supplements is to take high dose Omega 3 FFAs, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Gamma Vitamin E, Calcium, DHEA, Melatonin, Cercumin, Resveratrol, Coenzyme Q-10, and TA65. Each nutritional aid is discussed in the seminar and this discussion can be viewed on the web, just click here or click on the Part 2 photo above.

We all want to live longer but with quality of life. Embracing anti-aging concepts helps us to maximize our health while improving our lifespan. If you are interested in further information regarding these concepts, make an appointment to see Dr. True at 817-399-8786.
