Nutrition for Anti aging
The eating plan most synergistic with hormone
therapy is reminiscent of the Paleolithic nutrition
eaten by our ancestors. They ate highly nutrient
dense foods such as fruits, vegetables, lean meats,
essential fats and virtually no refined, overly
processed fats and simple carbohydrates. For thousands
of years, humans ate very simply: if it grew from
the ground, fell from the trees, or ran across
our path, we ate it.
It took thousands of years for our digestive
systems to adapt to the addition of small amounts
of grains and dairy products. There is no way
we have adapted to the additives, preservatives,
colorings, and flavourings that
now dominate our food choices.
Even products like sugar have taken a very unnatural
turn. Recent government research shows that in
1994, sugar consumption averaged 149 pounds per
person per year! That’s a far cry from our
sugar-free, hunter/gatherer days. Our bodies have
not caught up with the dietary changes we made
and the results are disastrous. The rates of heart
attacks, type II diabetes, obesity, strokes, hypertension
and gastrointestinal disorders just keep climbing.
Fortunately, all of these symptoms can be greatly
improved by positive dietary changes.
The goals of the MD LONGEVITY NUTRITION PLAN are
- To maximize the results of your hormone supplementation programme
- To prevent illnesses such as heart disease,
type II diabetes and cancer
- To boost the body's immune function
MAXIMIZING HORMONE SUPPLEMENTATION THERAPY
WITH GROWTH HORMONE
Our nutritional plan is designed to keep blood
sugar as low as possible as this is crucial for
the management of insulin. Adding human growth
hormones to the body increases levels of IGF-1
(Insulin-like Growth Factor-1). Insulin actually
decreases IGF production. The liver inhibits IGF-1
Many of the leading causes of death in this country
such as heart disease, type II diabetes, cancer,
etc. can be directly linked to poor dietary choices.
The average American diet is overloaded with
- saturated fats
- refined flour
- artificial colors
- artificial flavors and sweeteners
- antibiotic and pesticide residues
and many other substances that are toxic to the
body. Over time this continued barrage of chemicals
and empty calories leads to decreased health and,
ultimately, illness. Cutting out foreign chemicals
and adding nutrient dense foods into the diet
can work wonders for those seeking optimal health.
BOOSTING THE BODY'S IMMUNE FUNCTION
The body's immune system is miraculous. When
given the proper nutrients, it can fend off colds,
bacteria, viruses, and even cancer without you
being aware that anything is wrong. By consistently
eating a diet high in phyto-nutrients (plant nutrients),
essential fats, lean protein, and fiber, we can
provide our body with all the tools it needs to
fight off foreign invaders, repair tissues, and
maintain a general state of good health.
AS PART OF OUR PROGRAMME, WE
ALSO INSTRUCT YOU ON A COMREHENSIVE LOW GLYCEMIC
DIET & MENU IDEAS.
Taking optimal amounts of nutritional supplements
is a cornerstone of any comprehensive anti aging programme;
you simply cannot get enough of these nutrients
from a normal diet for optimum health. Having
inadequate amounts can kill you.
Because natural foods, including fruits and vegetables,
are depleted in vitamins and minerals, we also
need to supplement our basic micro and macro-nutrients.
