If you are over 50 years of age, modern life presents you with a number of choices - will you acquiesce down the slippery slope traditionally associated with getting older – or will you make the preferable choice to ensure your Golden Years are enjoyed in continued good health with a lifestyle full of adventure, creativity and wholesome vitality?
This book the "Latest Anti-Aging Strategies" is about Challenge and about Choice, and if you are over 40 it presents an opportunity for you to reflect on your lifestyle, your health and the process of aging. Reading this book, or publications of a similar nature, could have a major impact on the rest of your life, empowering you with the information you need to make good choices concerning your lifestyle and your health.
Alchemists have long sought the Elixir of Life, but the concept of reversing the aging process no longer has that elusive quality of the fool's dream. Each day the dream is becoming more and more of a reality, not only possible but achievable.
A number of factors combine today to make the anti-aging revolution possible, and achievable by those prepared to take the time to understand and assume responsibility for their own good health, well being and longevity.
Many of us who are aged over 40, through the benefits of the developed modern world, will have achieved sufficient economic security to find time for rest and recreation, to reflect upon our values and to make lifestyle choices. Using the many educational resources available to us, we can re-evaluate our lives, enabling us to place good health and personal well being for yourselves and our families at the top of our list of priorities.
In this we are supported by the many recent medical and technological breakthroughs within the human bio-sciences including cell biology, endocrinology, genetics and immunology, coupled with a host of new innovative diagnostic tools which are changing modern medicine in leaps and bounds.
It is said that a major milestone in the aging process and a re-acknowledgement of your own mortality occurs abruptly just after celebrating your 60th birthday – in my case it was a great party, but I did not enthusiastically welcome the milestone!
Instead, I reflected and counted my blessings.
Like everyone else, I was not sure if I had actually graduated into the realm of the wise, but after spending six decades in the school of hard knocks, at least I could contend to be a realist. As such, I accepted that my body was beginning, gently at times, abruptly at others, to remind me that the aging process, like all natural processes, eventually starts to accelerate. The realist in me accepted this and maturely reflected upon the art of living in peace with that which I cannot change. So the odd aches, the occasional pain and more frequent occurrences of the so called "Senior Moments Syndrome" I took in my stride and accepted as being part of the course. An inconvenience yes, but no great burden as I travelled on through life's rich embroidered landscape.
Thus I found myself accepting this "downhill slide" in a gentlemanly manner. After all, life had been good to me. I had been blessed with good health, an athletic gait and had been fortunate enough to grab some of the opportunities that came my way, maybe it was time to count my blessings and pass on the reins to a younger generation.
So accepting this as the dignified approach, I philosophically accepted my fate and was content to devise a retirement plan of relative comfort and tranquility, a time when I could simply be kind to myself. A period of being enlightened by good books, good wine, shared with the camaraderie of others in like circumstances, a time to smell the roses. A time to join the local park's philosophical brigade and acquiesce in relating to the world, mostly in the past tense, embellished with endless and imaginative good "old boy" stories, about how wonderful life was back then.
However, this unwelcoming retirement situation was completely contrary to my true nature. Throughout my life I have always been cheerfully optimistic and, as a progressive professional manager, a creative builder, being self-motivated, tenacious and quietly proud of my achievements. For me, the future was always to be bigger, brighter and more rewarding. Nonetheless, accepting that I was a mere mortal and that my bathroom mirror did not lie, I had, like all of us, to come to terms with my fast approaching destiny. I regarded old age, in any of its forms, not as "golden" but more as "rust like". While as a realist I accepted the inevitable with resignation, but in my own way I promised to fight the inescapable, and remembered my old Granny's advice - walk a lot, talk a lot and laugh a lot and you will keep old age at bay. Although Granny's wise recommendations are extremely valid they hardly seemed adequate enough to appease the Grim Reaper.
So a wee smile crossed my wrinkled face when I inadvertently came across my first anti-aging article - obviously the prospect of retaining full vitality and a few hairs on my head, for a good number of additional years was indeed the answer to an unspoken prayer. As my research delved further I began to glimpse a definite ray of light at the end of the tunnel. With every new avenue of investigation the light grew stronger, Halleluiah - my genetic fate could wait! My innate challenge mechanism switched on to dare ask the question "at this point in human evolution" – was it possible, using the latest combination of yet unproven anti-aging concepts, implemented conscientiously, to extend my life with all its good health and vitality until the final onset of morbidity? Having my seventy's , eighties and nineties lifestyle full of vitality, creativity and enjoyment, combined with the experience of my years would be absolutely priceless. I realized that the promise of revitalization would not be handed to me on a platter – and that by accepting the anti-aging challenge a lot of hard work lay ahead, but I certainly appreciated the concept of challenge rather than accept with resignation that the future was simply a slide down a slippery slope.
Life is not a store where you can pick your options nor does it come with an instruction manual.
I commenced enthusiastically reviewing every possible research path including the local library, bookstores, the internet, plus lifestyle magazines and medical journals. The search seemed overwhelming and endless. Every publication I read only led to a maze of additional cross-referenced scholarly studies. Each new field of research promised just another small piece in an extremely complex puzzle. I soon realized that if you delve into the inner realms of anti-aging you will be drawn to research the complete panorama of man's physiology, psychology and spiritual nature.
After two years of exhaustive study, in addition to attending numerous anti-aging and health conventions, I realized that to develop a well thought out, absolutely up-to-date, anti-aging program I needed to convert my scholarly, but lone search to include the many experts in every field of study associated with the anti-aging phenomena. While a few years ago reaching out to experts covering the numerous fields of study concerned with anti-aging would have been near impossible. But with the all-encompassing scope of today's ever-growing internet it has become feasible, via this medium. Experts from such diverse fields of study as stem cell biology and nutrition, from psychology to retail products and on to the more practical hints involved in everyday living have been sourced.
Over the last two years I have cajoled and recruited over 30 researchers from around the world, all of whom are mature specialists in their related fields. I believe I have felt compelled to tread this arduous path of discovery simply because although the knowledge was there for all to see, it was dispersed and camouflaged within so many diverse and near endless lists of medical publications and scientific journals, that it was near impossible for a lay person to comprehend all of it. Hopefully I have achieved my objective, with the intense aid of over 30 highly qualified researchers, to have studied and brought into this single, easy to read work, all of the information pertinent to the anti-aging revolution, a coalescence from which my readers can sensibly digest all the various aspects of the anti-aging phenomena and more importantly evolve for themselves an up to date realistic anti-aging strategy.
In addition, this work also includes a glimpse of the future by detailing many of the on-going anti-aging research programs currently under way. The new age scenario presented in this book faces you with a major challenge, which in fact may be the biggest challenge you will face throughout your remaining life. Do you decide simply to follow your old routines and habits, with the acceptance that your so called "Golden Years" will be just a period of dreaded slow deterioration with a few comfort commodities thrown in as consolation? Or - will you eagerly grasp all the new health opportunities offered by the new millennium and by dedicated, disciplined effort, combined with a lot of fun, infuse your new lifestyle with energy and vitality - with "Vitality" being the keyword of your "Enlightened Golden Years".
The audience of this work is presumed to be 45 plus in years and with no particular background in science or medicine. Thus the intention of this book is to present all aspects of the Anti-aging phenomenon in an easily readable and hopefully enjoyable manner. When topics demand the use of detailed medical or scientific terms, the terminology is normally translated immediately into lay terms. However, to assist with clarification of terminology, the book has a section containing a fully computerized glossary of the technical terms used in the book, so the reader will have no need to seek external explanations and can efficiently concentrate, with the flick of a switch, on the work at hand.
Unfortunately, there is presently no overall single silver bullet that will magically mitigate the aging process. However it is now generally accepted that with the right knowledge, dedication and the allotment of adequate time and finances you can evolve your own personal and successful anti-aging strategy, ensuring that you will get maximum health benefits throughout your remaining years. This book will give you the tools, you must decide how to utilize them and, as always, the choices are yours to make.
In addition, since the technology of anti-aging is currently evolving at such a rapidly increasing rate, the author and his expert research team, will continue to update this publication on your behalf and in addition will issue monthly anti-aging reviews directly to you, without any additional costs. Via this mode of continuing to monitor developments throughout the entire anti-aging scenario, you will be kept abreast of all the new programs, products and scientific advances. This promises to be vitally important since so many scientific disciplines are anticipating anti-aging breakthroughs within the very near future. With the development of your own personalized anti-aging strategy, in place and regularly updated by us, you will be enabled to take full advantage of the latest anti-aging technologies and have the opportunity to be at the forefront of the "Anti-aging Revolution".
