Good Health: Your Best Retirement Investment
Prolonging Good Health
JN Mixon M.D, Founder and Chief Medical Officer of Longevity Medical Clinic
Throughout human history, the goal of medicine has been to help people function normally throughout their lifespan. Yet, the progressive decline in physical and mental capacity that normally accompanies aging has always been accepted as unavoidable. Some lucky few age better than most, remaining limber and strong, and requiring little medical care. The unlucky among us age worse, with progressive health issues and debilitating bodily changes. Thus, the general course of aging has always been downhill. The sage in our midst counseled that we “age gracefully.” This is code for “get used to it, because there’s not much you can do about it.” That is no longer true.
For the first time in human history we have the ability to choose whether or not we want to go downhill over the course of the next few years. For those willing to make the necessary life changes, and to accept the help of a specialized practitioner or group of physicians, it is possible to be leaner, stronger, faster, smarter, and sexier than you were ten to fifteen years ago.
A specialized health maintenance programs can help you achieve these results. Such programs will generally involve changing your diet, improving your exercise and activity levels, reviewing and adjusting of both prescription and nonprescription medications, customizing a science-based supplement program, restoring your endocrine support to that of a 25-year-old, and boosting immune response to the greatest extent possible. Such comprehensive programs of lifestyle change, medical intervention, and carefully individualized coaching by a specially trained physician can help to bring about dramatic changes in the average overweight and unconditioned American.
Thousands of retirees are discovering that their strength, stamina, speed, and intelligence can improve as they age. Since many of the normal, but highly undesirable, changes of aging can be postponed or even reversed, you should take control of your health by consulting medical experts to help you consider taking advantage of new and exciting developments in medicine and lifestyle so that you can stay healthy and enjoy each day.
