How not to age before it is time - Part One

“How do I not age before it’s time?”   —- It is a big question searching for big answers. 

Aging can be so frustrating. You think you know your body and how to work with it to keep it strong and healthy. Then, bam, overnight - it all seems to change. Fortunately, especially for those of us in our middle years, science is showing us what we can do to slow, even reverse the process. 

Tune into this episode and hear Pam Strand discuss one widely accepted scientific theory of aging (published in 2013) that identified nine hallmarks of aging.  This study gives us an understanding of what is happening as the body ages and what we can do about it in our everyday lifestyle choices. 

  • Biological aging is a progressive, time-related process that brings physiological changes to the body. And it is the most common underlying cause of age-related disease.

  • Aging changes the way cells operate, brings about a decline in biological function (no surprise there, right?), and overrides the body’s ability to adapt to metabolic stress. 

  • Lifestyle choices are both a major cause and a key solution to aging - at least making it go as slowly as possible. 

  • Exercise, nutritious foods, and stress reduction continue to not only be healthy choices, but they are also choices that change our cellular health for the better. 

  • Intermittent fasting is also shown to support our cellular health.

  • Learning to take care of our cells helps us take care of ourselves - it is the ultimate form of self care. 

This episode is the first in a series of three devoted to discussing the biological aging process and what you can do to age as slowly as possible. Be sure to tune to Episodes 8 and 9 to continue the conversation.
