Resiliency in Aging

Dharma S Khalsa, MD Health Guide
  • This edition is about the great new battery recharge often called resiliency by doctors.

    Why is it so important? Because as you age, the "Stress of Life," mounts up. Each time you suffer a set back, you are exposed to a situation that has you feeling overwhelmed.  Or during times of great effort, your "battery" depletes and it can age you too fast if you don't do something about it.

    To illustrate this point, I recently saw a middle-aged patient who lost her resiliency and, she was suffering because of it. She runs 2 businesses in a large metropolitan area but lives in the suburbs, which means she has to commute at least 1 ½ hrs each way.

    Additionally, it was unclear if her marriage of over 25 years was going to survive.
    There were business problems and children challenges and so on. Need I say more?

    She was faltering at every turn; feeling tired all the time and looking fatigued as well with baggy eyes and dark circles and skin that had lost its color and looked grey.

    Good health and the ability to "bounce back from stress" begins at the cellular level, and your body gets the energy it needs to live, breathe, and thrive from microscopic "batteries" called mitochondria, located within your cells.

    I mentioned these energy power plants before but to review, after age 25, these powerhouses begin to lose efficiency. That means the cells throughout your body - in your skin, heart and even your brain - don't operate as productively as they once did.

    A combination of Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) and Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) and Coenzyme Q 10 are all highly effective anti-aging nutrients. These compounds work synergistically to restore mitochondrial integrity and increase metabolic efficiency at the cellular level. Taken regularly, just these nutrients help support healthy aging by increasing the vitality of mitochondria, thus improving and maintaining cellular health.

    Some doctors believe you will never be able to reverse the aging process.  I don't agree.

    Indeed, research offers compelling evidence that the before mentioned compounds help promote health deep in our cells. Healthy cells may be the key to a whole range of benefits from a better brain to better looking skin, less disease and a longer life.

    Prevention is key to the question of resiliency.  Eating right, taking supplements and exercising mind and body become the building blocks of maintaining your resiliency.  Begin today!
