Background on Anti Aging Programs

Anti aging is one of the newest and most exciting areas of health and wellness studies. This is because the baby boomers, comprising a significant part of the population, are aging and trying to find ways to stay and feel young. Life extension has increased dramatically in the United States since 1900 and will continue to increase. In fact, it is suggested that life expectancy in the mid-twenty-first century will be 85 years. People are and will be living longer and longer. But people do not want to simply live a long life; they want to live a high quality long life.

 

Many fatal diseases are degenerative in nature and not solely hereditary. Genetics and heredity typically account for only 10 to 33% of a person's physical health status. Therefore we have significant control over how long we will live.

 

This course presents the factors and influences associated with aging and suggestions for how to possibly slow the aging process. It highlights strategies to living a longer and healthier life. The course begins with aging statistics and then introduces the variables associated with aging. These variables include exercise, stress and emotions, social relationships and religion, alcohol, smoking, antioxidants and their role in relationship to cancer and heart disease, food quantity and weight control, diet types, habits and patterns, anti aging foods and beverages such as fruits, vegetables, garlic, fish, grains, nuts, legumes, soy, chocolate, yogurt, water, wine and tea. There is a discussion on nutrient deficiencies and hormones that also may affect aging.

 

Once the course is completed, you will receive the anti aging manual and outline, tools that will allow you to administer an anti aging program.

 

This course may be taken by allied health professions including but not limited to massage therapists, chiropractic physicians, athletic trainers, chiropractic assistants, occupational therapists/assistants, and physical therapists/assistants.
