Why is it that nobody seems to give a second thought to what happens to the inside of our bodies as we age?
The answer is not just in how we keep the face looking wrinkle-free, but rather in how we keep the inside detoxified, without inflammation or disease, the brain sharp, the heart healthy, and every organ functioning optimally.
Most women have never even heard of the science attached to true disease prevention.
Nor do they understand the concept of feeling great as you age and not needing to go from doctor to doctor or from test to test in search of a disease to blame for their problems.
It’s sad that so few of us know that we can enjoy life fearlessly and in good health pretty much forever — without the so-called help we get from the conventional medical system.
There is certainly a time and place for specialists. There is a time and a place for everything. But before you get to the sickness and fear of dying, there are a lot of great scientifically advanced ways in which doctors like me can help people like you.
To start with, you must understand that anti-aging, turning back the clock, finding the fountain of youth, is never going to come from the outside in. It definitely doesn’t come from Botox, plastic surgery, or the cosmetic counter.
We are complex human beings with complicated organ functions, genetic predispositions toward certain diseases, and weaknesses.
Our lifestyle directly affects how we weather the storms of aging. Poor eating habits wreak havoc inside our bodies just as much as they damage the outside. Being sedentary makes us fat and sick.
And lack of sleep ages us more than everything else we do put together. Instead of focusing on what we can do to improve the situation, we fall prey to those who want to keep us sick and scared because they profit from it.
How many women have you seen who spend fortunes running from dermatologist to plastic surgeon to facialist to every cosmetic counter, in the perpetual hope of finding the eternal look of youth? I know far too many.
Unless we truly understand how aging occurs inside our bodies, and its connection to how it reflects outside, we all wind up looking like we went through a wind tunnel or worse — with huge lips, bulging cheeks, and certainly with less money in our pockets.
And still we feel horrible inside because that part, the inside, is not visible, so it is totally ignored.
The reality is only gloomy if you go for the quick fixes — the scalpel, the injection, the love handle and thigh liposuction, the total body reconstruction.
