Longevity Medicine has many lofty goals, like extending the maximum human lifespan beyond 125 years. While this is not yet possible, we already now can avoid dying prematurely by preventing chronic diseases like Alzheimer's, heart disease, stroke and cancer. And that, it turns out, depends to a big degree on our lifestyle.
MEDICAL WEIGHT BALANCING
Considering that 75% of all people who go through a weight loss program regain it within 3 years (95% within 10 years!), it is clear that most diets don’t work. In order to be successful a medical weight loss programs has to take your metabolic and biochemical individuality into account.
Fasting isn’t exactly a new concept. Dependent on the success of hunt or harvest, hunger and starvation were a recurrent reality for our ancestors. This put a strong evolutionary pressure on the body’s ability to survive despite the deprivation. And that is exactly what happened. The body compensated by making us more resilient.
HEAVY METAL DETOX
Heavy Metals are highly toxic and, due to the US Geological Survey, can be a threat to the health of people and wildlife even in environments that are not obviously polluted. Once in the body, they act as free radicals, damage cells and impair many important enzymes. Due to their long half-life, they still can be detected years and even decades after contamination. Even if they don’t cause overt disease, they prevent the body from being optimally healthy.
