Healthy ageing and wellness program
How old are you really? What do you imagine for your retirement? I bet you don’t want to be sick, tired, achy, and unable to enjoy life!
A Healthy Ageing consultation utilises information from your diet and lifestyle, family history, mental health history, pathology tests, flexibility measurements, grip strength, bone density, sexual dysfunction, vision, hearing, and biological markers such as blood pressure, to give an estimation of how your body is ageing. We look at inflammation, free radical exposure, preventing DNA damage, mitochondrial function, and everyday toxin exposure.
We use this information to develop an individual plan that includes recommendations for diet, exercise, relaxation, rest, social connection, intellectual stimulation, and a supplement program specific to your needs: all the factors that contribute to healthy ageing and disease prevention.
Whatever your age, the Healthy Ageing Program can help you live a vibrant and healthy life.
Our world is more complicated than ever before. Uninvited molecular ‘guests’ are present in our bodies, in the cord blood of babies, and in Arctic sea ice. Should we be concerned?
A toxic chemical cocktail is present in our deodorants, toothpaste, shampoo, perfumes, body lotions, shaving cream, disinfectants, cleaning products, children’s toys, non-stick cookware, fruits and vegetables, milk and meat, sunscreen, hair products, upholstery, car interiors, printing inks, nail polish, insecticides, glue, disposable nappies, vinyl, food containers, plastic film for food packaging, paint, and air fresheners. The extent to which people can withstand this onslaught is variable, dependant on genetic pre-disposition, your health history and how well you are. But why would you take that risk?
In a detox consultation, we will explore what you are being exposed
to and how it may be affecting you. We will make a plan to
minimise your exposure, improve your body's ability to detoxify, and enhance your ability to resist this toxic onslaught.
Did you know that?
- A study of 40,000 children found that the higher the level of phthalates in household dust, the higher the rates of asthma and eczema. PVC flooring is very rich in phthalates. The study is now continuing with 100,000 children.
- BPA has now been linked with elevated risk of heart disease,
infertility and diabetes-like effects.
- Triclosan has been linked to dramatically increasing rates of allergies, and is toxic to the thyroid.
- Mercury exposure is connected to autoimmune diseases in adult
women and hormone alterations in children.
- Perfluorooctanoic acid, used to make Teflon and non-stick and
stain-resistant coatings has a ‘probable link’ to pregnancy induced
hypertension, testicular cancer, kidney cancer, ulcerative colitis,
thyroid disease and high cholesterol.
- Sodium lauryl sulphate - in shampoos and body washes, is linked to reproductive toxicity and hormone disruption.
- Methyl paraben mimics oestrogen, which can lead to increased risk of breast cancer, affect male reproductive functions, is linked to dermatitis and has been shown to cause cancer in animals.
- DEP and DnBP are known hormone disruptors. Exposure is linked to asthma, increased allergenicity, reproductive and metabolic disorders and developmental and behavioural problems.
- Increased concentration of DDT in maternal milk is associated with an increased risk of infertility.
- Any exposure to pesticides was associated with an
increased risk of asthma, lower birth weight, shorter length and
smaller head circumference at birth. 30/37 widely used
agricultural pesticides blocked or mimicked testosterone.
- Prenatal exposure to chlorpyrifos is associated with decreased IQ and working memory scores.
- Parabens are found in deodorants/antiperspirants, and mimic oestrogen in the human body. Parabens have been found in human breast tissue. “Between 50-60% of breast cancers begin in the upper-outer quadrant of the breast near the armpit”. Four-fold higher levels of parabens were found in sample breast tissue from radical mastectomies in a 2004 study, compared to breast tissue unaffected by cancer. A disproportionate percentage of breast cysts are also found in the upper-outer quadrant of the breast, and aluminium levels are higher in the fluid of breast cysts than in any other part of the body.
