Anti-Aging and Longevity

Everyone knows that cosmetic surgery can do wonders for the way you look. But what steps can you take to help ensure that the way you feel matches your new, improved appearance? Achieving an overall sense of well-being depends, in part, on achieving maximum health through vitamin and hormone supplementation, proper diet and exercise. It also may require certain changes in your lifestyle, such as not smoking, avoiding second-hand smoke, modifying alcohol consumption, increasing sleep, reducing stress and protecting your skin from the sun.

Vitamins, minerals and other natural compounds are all necessary to the optimal functioning of your body. Antioxidants found in green tea, fruits and vegetables help to combat the toxic “free radicals” that are in everyone’s system.

Some experts believe that breakthroughs in hormone therapy soon may increase our average lifespan to 100 years or more. However, there is a great deal of research that must be done before therapies such as Human Growth Hormone become widely available. In the meantime, the best approach to anti-aging is simply a healthy lifestyle.

Dr. Bennett’s avid interest in anti-aging and longevity has changed many of his patients’ lifestyles. He firmly believes in the benefits of a healthy diet and exercise, and in the value of vitamin, nutrient and hormone supplementation and anti-aging skin rejuvenation treatments.

Remember before modifying your diet, taking vitamin supplements, starting an exercise routine or making other significant changes in your lifestyle, be sure to obtain the advice of your physician.
