Slow down your biological clock

Have you ever thought that maybe your biological clock is older than your chronological age, imagine that! This weekend I have spent time at the ‘Turning Back the Biological Clock’ conference and boy did I learn a thing or two.

Here are some questions you should ask yourself to see if you are living at the age you really are;
Have you ever felt that you were older than you really are?
Do you feel like the years haven’t been kind to you?
Do you think that for your age, you should have more energy than you actually do?

At this conference it was incredible to see, through scientific evidence that some things really do contribute to us aging well beyond our years and with some simple and facilitated professional health assistance these can be addressed and changed – or better yet stopped in there tracks.

Some simple lifestyle strategies that I am always harping on about were of course addressed.
And again, I will share them with you; 
  •  Fresh air
  •  Exposure to Sunlight
  • Eating Quality Vegetables
  • Exercise and Physical activity
  • Adequate Water intake
  •  Forming healthy and loving interpersonal Relationships

 Yet if these actions are so simple and second nature to us why do we keep ignoring them? Why do we forget to breathe deep and activate our lungs daily? Why do we avoid the sun and now most Australians are presenting with signs of Vitamin D deficiency? Why aren’t we eating a minimum of 3 cups of vegetables a day? Or exercising or loving the one we are with?

These are the road-blocks of your day to day however if you are given the tools and learn to apply them you could drive straight through! Imagine enjoying your life to its full extent.

Other hot topics that were discussed were the drivers of Aging and Chronic Disease including Mitochondrial dysfunction, Inflammation and Genomic Instability. Again we learnt more about the benefits of using therapeutic doses and practitioner quality products to assist in the stopping and slowing down of the aging process.

Phyto-nutrients are a key indictor for making you feel younger than you are, and now they are coming in concentrated forms, which makes it easy for your body to take in one go. The use of quality anti-oxidants, Essential Fatty Acids (EFA), probiotics and of course quality multi-vitamins but unless you are taking the therapeutic doses you are not getting the benefits.
Creating balance is something we all have difficulty in achieving in these busy times; too much work, not enough family time not even enough ‘me’ time – we all strive for balance but how can it be achieved? What are some of the things that you apply to your lifestyle to make it flow?
