Longevity and Well Being
Aging is a natural process and inevitable part of life that we will all experience. Growing older can and should be a positive experience characterized by added wisdom, pleasure and self-knowing. However, so often aging is feared because it can be accompanied by heart disease, diabetes, cancer, depression, sexual dysfunction, fatigue, frailty, arthritis, etc. While growing older cannot be avoided, these age-related diseases can be avoided. Along with living a healthy lifestyle, herbs and natural therapies can greatly reduce the negative effects of aging. They can prevent oxidative damage, increase detoxification, improve digestion, improve tissue integrity, balance hormones and lower stress levels – all of which work to improve the vitality and longevity of our cells. Rich in antioxidant and detoxifying compounds, herbs should be a cornerstone of any longevity health regimen.
