Aging naturally, or anti-aging medicine is a growing science.
Understanding what causes us to age, and the options we have to prevent or delay it, is big business. Until recently, most of the focus has been on repairing the damage aging has done to our exterior body (injections of Botox, face lifts, skin resurfacing and creams and lotions).
Symptoms of an Aging Body
At Passport 2 Vitality, we look at aging from the inside out. We ensure that the body has everything it needs to continue to grow and heal itself – even as those nutrients begin to decline as a natural function of the aging process.
Typical symptoms of aging, including declining eyesight, hearing loss and memory loss, can be lessened with the right combination of foods and supplements.
In Women – Menopause
Perimenopause (the beginning of the estrogen decline leading to menopause) is the period when many women become very aware of changes in their body. Symptoms may include changes in your monthly cycle, lower sex drive, mood swings, occassional hot flashes, heart palpitations, vaginal dryness, weight gain and problems sleeping. This period, leading up to the cessation of menstruation, can be from the age of 40-early 60’s. Women who are younger than 40 and experiencing these symptoms may have early menopause.
These changes can be cause for celebration! Many times, they coincide with a time of life that is less hectic, richer and more fun than earlier years. Because the various stages of menopause can last up to 10 years, it is important to seek guidance on how to deal with the symptoms of menopause. If you are caring for your body properly, you may find this time relaxing, rewarding and with a renewed sense of confidence and wellbeing.
