100 Tips and Tricks to Live Longer and Healthier
Free Seminar Focuses on Latest Advances in Anti-Aging Strategies
Most of us would like to live a longer, healthier life.
From exercise to diets and creams to pills, the quest for longevity is enduring. And while it's common knowledge that regular exercise and a sensible diet can help promote a longer life, that's not the end of the story, according to Washington Hospital Medical Staff family practitioner Deepti Saxena.
On Tuesday, July 28, Dr. Saxena will present a free Health & Wellness seminar entitled "Longer Life & Healthy Aging."
"We all know what happens with aging," she says. "Patients know they need to eat well and exercise, but I will talk about some things they've never heard of. Mainly I want to focus on what causes aging because everyone knows if we eat poorly and don't exercise, we age faster. But aging happens even if you're doing all the right things. For instance, over time people start to gain weight, they might develop diabetes, heart disease or another chronic condition."
Dr. Saxena, who has completed a fellowship in anti-aging and regenerative medicine with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, will focus on the latest advancements in anti-aging.
"I'm going to talk about what takes place during the aging process, including changes in hormones and absorption of nutrients from food," she says. "Then I will discuss treatments to balance those things, such as bioidentical hormone replacement."
Overall, Dr. Saxena estimates that audience members will receive more than 100 strategies to combat the aging process.
Talking points will include:
* Tips for retaining and/or improving memory capacity, including information about over-the-counter products that can aid in boosting brain circulation.
* Ways to enhance the body's hormone supply.
* Details about chelation therapy, which Dr. Saxena believes can aid in clearing out blood vessels throughout the body, thereby reducing the clogging of the arteries known as atherosclerosis, which can contribute to heart attack and stroke. Heart disease represents the most common cause of death in the United States.
* Tips for detoxification, including protocols audience members can do at home.
