Prevention of Premature Aging

Biological Age vs Chronological Age

We measure our chronological age in years from our birth, and most of us expect that we’ll be young, healthy, and strong in our earlier years and slowly deteriorate as we age. In reality, though, these don’t always pan out. It’s because our biological age depends on our epigenetic code that determines when genes related to the diseases and disorders of aging will express, and our lifestyle choices have a lot to do with controlling our epigenetic code. 

An accurate measurement of biological age is a key tool for clinicians to judge whether age-reversal interventions are necessary, and to what extent. A biological age digital test can analyze the molecules (your epigenetics) that impact how your DNA (genetics) is expressed.

Turning Back The Biological Clock

Recent research suggests that epigenetics, especially DNA methylation, plays a mechanistic role in aging. DNA Methylation testing offers a high predictive power for long-term disease risks and the impacts of aging. It offers real-time feedback on how interventions are affecting individual patients. It’s the epigenetic biomarker we use to measure biological aging! 

Once you know your true biological age, the next step is taking control of the lifestyle factors that can change DNA expression. A healthy diet, stress management, regular exercise, and getting enough sleep go a long way to regulating the DNA methylation cycle in a healthy and holistic way.

Holistic Approaches to Minimize Signs of Aging

This program emphasizes holistic approaches to preventing signs of aging. These methods are natural and offer patients a non-drug alternative for those who wish to stay away from medication.

By considering the totality of one’s lifestyle and well-being, holistic approaches offer a more nuanced and sustainable means of minimizing the visible signs of aging.

Program/Membership Benefits

Minimize Impacts of Sarcopenia

Sarcopenia refers to the age-related loss of muscle mass, strength, and function. It can result in decreased muscle strength, impaired mobility, and an increased risk of falls and fractures.

Several factors contribute to the development of sarcopenia, including hormonal changes, reduced physical activity, inadequate nutrition, and chronic inflammation. It is not solely a consequence of aging but is also influenced by lifestyle factors.

Preventive measures for sarcopenia include regular exercise, particularly strength training and resistance exercises, along with a well-balanced diet that provides adequate protein and other essential nutrients. Early detection and intervention can help slow the progression of sarcopenia and improve overall quality of life for older individuals.

Cognitive Benefits

Physical activity and a nutritious diet have been linked to cognitive health. Our program’s holistic approach includes methods that support brain function, potentially reducing the risk of cognitive decline associated with aging.

Incorporating regular exercise, including strength training and cardiovascular activities, can help maintain muscle mass, bone density, and joint flexibility, promoting overall physical fitness and agility. Additionally, our program emphasizes a well-balanced diet rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, providing essential nutrients that support skin health, immune function, and cellular repair.

Chronic Disease Prevention

Lifestyle interventions included in this program may contribute to reducing the risk of chronic diseases associated with aging, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis.

While aging is a natural process, adopting healthy lifestyle habits can contribute to a longer and more active life, delaying the onset of age-related health issues.

FAQ

Is aging considered a disease?

Aging causes an accumulated decline in cognitive and physical function, often in the form of already-recognized health conditions like cancer and congenital heart disease. The World Health Organization (WHO) formally recognized aging as a disease in 2018.

What is biological age?

Biological age is a measurement of your body’s approximate cellular & molecular age, independent from chronological age. It is a number that can change due to lifestyle and other health factors, along with inheritance and pressures during childhood and much more. 

We look at biological age measured by methylation, because research has shown it is the #1 most accurate and most predictive measure of future disease occurrence, frailty, and can even estimate the time-to-death. That predictive power makes it highly useful both in research and in individual longevity/health tracking.

What is epigenetics?

Epigenetics refers to heritable changes in gene expression that do not alter the primary DNA sequence.

In other words; ways that outside forces regularly change which of your genes are being used, and by how much. Epigenetic markers are molecules we can read to learn more about what epigenetic changes have been made.

What is DNA methylation?

DNA methylation is a type of epigenetic marker, which can change gene expression.

It consists of a small molecule – a methyl group – attaching to specific sites on the DNA. We can look at patterns of methylation to learn a lot about a person’s health and aging.

What is epigenetics testing and how is it different from DNA testing?

DNA tests check what genes you have, but don't tell you if those genes are being used or not. Epigenetic tests look at markers that change how your genes are turned on or off – essentially checking what genes your body is putting to use. Epigenetic testing can also show how your gene expression has changed over time, and can estimate current predispositions toward developing certain diseases, based on gene expression.

What is a holistic approach to reducing signs of aging?

A holistic approach to aging focuses on addressing the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of well-being. It involves integrating lifestyle choices, skincare practices, nutrition, and stress management to promote overall health and minimize visible signs of aging.

Can holistic approaches prevent age-related diseases?
While holistic approaches cannot guarantee the prevention of age-related diseases, they can contribute to reducing the risk by promoting a healthy lifestyle. Regular exercise, a nutritious diet, and stress management are associated with a lower risk of certain chronic diseases.
How does stress impact the aging process, and how can holistic approaches help manage it?
Chronic stress has been linked to accelerated aging. Holistic approaches incorporate stress reduction techniques such as meditation, yoga, and mindfulness to manage stress, promoting overall well-being and slowing down the aging process.
