DO NOT SMOKE

EFFECTIVE MEASURES

 

 If you smoke cigarettes, STOP!

 Drink only filtered water

 Limit consumption of alcoholic beverages-if at all

 Consume only toxin-free food preferably organically grown

 Eat 5 to 7 servings of fresh vegetables daily

 Exercise daily. Brisk walking is a good start

 Stretch and meditate daily. Yoga and Tai-Chi instruction and tapes are readily available

 Consume high quality vitamins, minerals and enzymes daily

 Get a pet

 Take time to talk with your spouse or significant other

 Get your annual examinations done on schedule. Pap smears, breast exams, and prostate checks are still important

 Discuss your options for hormone replacement therapy with the FMC staff

 Discuss your options for removal of toxins and heavy metal from your body with the FMC staff

 Use household, automotive and lawn chemicals judiciously

Anti-Aging Therapy

Slowing the Clock

 

The combined use of the above methods with daily exercise, stress reduction, and the very important aspect of nutrition with caloric reduction can slow the process of aging in humans as well as laboratory animals.

 

For more information please contact the office to schedule and appointment.

 

What can you do? First and foremost sit down with your spouse or significant other to discuss what you can do together to slow down the aging process.

 

Read all the available information on the Internet and in the public press.

 

Bring this information to the Farmington Medical Center staff to discuss and clarify. Talk about options available to you through our center. Then make a plan that you can life with for the next 30 to 50 years.

Removal of Toxins

 

The Federal Drug Administration has approved the use of two chemicals for the purpose of removing heavy metals from humans. EDTA, know by the chemical nomenclature as ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid has been safely administered intravenously for over 40 years. The second, less well known medication, Succimer or Chemet, is administered orally to children to remove lead (Pb) from the tissues. This has also been used to remove mercury (Hg) and other heavy metals from the body.

Free Radicals

 

The medical community also has consensus that free radical formation can be slowed and its effects ameliorated by the use of antioxidants such as Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and free fatty acids in specific ratios. While there are some honest disagreements among those medical scientist that inhabit the ivory towers of academia as to the mechanisms and measurements of free radical scavenging, they do agree these scavengers are quite effective. The scientific community is also in consensus about the problems caused by industrial toxins, chemical preservatives, certain dyes, pesticides, herbicides, and the effects of tobacco and alcohol products on the human body and test animals. It is truly a sad commentary about the state of governmental influence by those that produce these toxins that their continued production are permitted at all. Nevertheless, we do have some tools with which to work to remove some of the toxins from the human body.

Natural Hormone Therapy

 

We do know that replacement of natural hormones is effective in counteracting some age-related processes involving osteoporosis and tissue elasticity. We know that natural seems to work better than synthetic in most situations. And we know that if potential side effects are cautiously monitored, natural hormone replacement is safe and effective.

The Aging Process

 

There are several different credible theories about the aging process in humans. Medical scientists have been chipping away at the wall of hidden information about human genetics, telomeres (knotty ends to the chromosomal structures), free radicals, hormonal function, and biochemical enzymatic activity for decades. The answers we seek are still elusive, but we have had a few glimpses of what the aging process entails. While there have been no methods elucidated to change genetic process, nor has there been effective slowing of the telomeres breakdown, the scientific medical community has some consensus regarding hormone activity, free radical destruction of cellular structures, and some idea of enzymatic activity at the cellular level.
