Nobody wants to get old. And why would we? The aging process eventually affects every one of our body systems-from mental function and sexual performance to physical appearance, ability, and strength. But chronological age has little to do with a person's biological age: some people are old at fifty, while others are still sharp and spry at ninety. While aging may be inevitable, that doesn’t mean that we have to sit idly and just allow it to happen, there are steps we can take to slow the aging process to extend our healthspan and longevity.
The things we've always considered "normal aging" are actually caused by physiological problems that, in many cases, respond to medical treatment and healthy lifestyle habits. As a result, the human life span can be significantly increased while maintaining-or even improving-the quality of life! This contemporary approach to aging-known as anti-aging medicine-is a specialty practiced by more than 30,000 physicians worldwide. It uses advanced scientific and medical technologies for the early detection, prevention, treatment, and reversal of age-related dysfunction, disorders, and diseases. In the near future, we can look forward to boundless health and vitality thanks to these anti-aging approaches.

With hundreds of individual tips on a wide variety of subjects, this book was written to help provide you with the knowledge you need to be your own health advocate and control your health destiny. Each of us must learn enough, and keep learning, about how to keep ourselves healthy. As Marcus Annaeus Seneca, Roman writer (c. 54 BC–c. 39 AD) remarked, “For the great benefits of our being — our life, health, and reason, we look upon ourselves.”
“Tip 42: Fiber, The Anti-Fat: Fiber soaks up fat. A high-fiber diet can improve your digestion, relieve the strain on your liver and gallbladder, and reduce your risk of large bowel cancer, gallstones, diabetes, arteriosclerosis, colitis, hemorrhoids, hernia, and varicose veins. Your body will benefit from both soluble fiber (sources include dried beans, oats, barley, apples, citrus fruits, and potatoes) and insoluble fiber (found in whole grains, wheat bran, cereals, seeds, and the skins of many fruits and vegetables).”
Remember, self-reliance is the key to our health, happiness, and well-being. Anti-aging medicine, a clinical specialty that embraces patient education and empowerment, represents the dawning of an exciting new era in medicine, one that will result with longevity intervention orders of magnitude greater than any other advancements made in medicine to-date. Enjoy a future of boundless health and vitality by implementing anti-aging approaches to help you feel, look, and perform better today by making simple lifestyle changes that can assist you on your way to living a long and healthy lifespan.
