Did you pick up the 11/5 edition of the Dayton City Paper? If so, we're sure you enjoyed (as always) Drs. Oz and Roinzen's article "How Good Health Is The Ultimate Aphrodisiac". They focused on how great health is the key to looking great, feeling great and having a great sex life. One interesting thing they pointed out is that people who wore special breathing treatments at night for sleep apnea started to "look better". In an unbiased comparison, their faces were rated as younger, far more attractive and more alert about 65% of the time. The conclusion? People who sleep better, look better! Another few strategies listed were nixing major food felons, such as cutting out added sugars, excess sodium and any grain that isn't whole. When your blood sugar is elevated, the glucose gloms onto proteins throughout your body, including collagen and elastin, which are essential for keeping skin firm. Adding more fresh fruits and veggies will give your skin a rosier glow, as well as upping your fiber intake which will ultimately help with weight loss and digestion, control blood sugar, improve HDL cholesterol (the good kind) and lower that lousy LDL cholesterol. Is stress affecting your libido? Try walking at least 10,000 steps a day, meditate for 10 minutes each evening and spend more time with your friends and loved ones- a smile can make your appearance look 3 years younger. If you think all this is interesting, we encourage your to pick up this edition or check it out online- and as always, Dr. Moore would like to throw his two cents in!
I like what Dr. Oz and Roizen have to say as good general health practices and being healthier, in general, will help your appearance and your sex life. I suggest you follow the practices they describe regards diet, exercise, avoiding fats/salts/sugars, and stress reduction.
But, we don’t want to oversimplify and not take advantage of the powerful science of Age Management Medicine.
Many are suffering poor health and poor sexual health as a result of a weakened hormone system that requires supplementation. Certainly, in some instances losing weight can help your body’s natural hormones recover- but, not in most cases. So, the statement regards weight loss and restoration of hormones by Dr. Oz and Roizen is quite misleading. Many people would be surprised to know that 20% of men below 30 years of age have low testosterone and that this number rises to over 50 % of men over 60. Unfortunately, similar drops in critical hormones for looking good and sexual health drop off in women starting in their mid 30s. Hormone replacement by Wellness doctors who specialize in Bio-identical Hormone Replacement therapy is highly effective in restoring maximum vitality including enhanced appearance and enhanced sexual health. And, what is more, hormone replacement done right is cancer preventive and cardiac protective. Myths and misconceptions about hormone replacement therapies have kept many on the sidelines with declining and imbalanced hormone levels and are suffering many un-needed ravishes of aging.
Additionally, the Science of Age Management Medicine helps one combat the five major mechanisms of Aging:
1) Chronic Inflammation 2) Oxidative Stress3) Insulin Resistance 4) Cell Membrane Integrity issues and 5) Mitochondrial Aging.
This is done with the judicious use of supplements that prevent aging caused by these mechanisms.
Then, Age Management Medicine will help you prevent shortening of your Telomeres, the tips of your DNA that get snipped off each time your cells renew themselves by replication. Age Management Science will introduce you to Calorie Restriction Mimetics- 5 or 10 compounds shown to express your longevity genes allowing you to live a more vital life.
