Achieve Weight Management
We are all getting ” older ” from a chronologic point of view,
but did you know that you can markedly slow down the
aging of your cells ?
And… you can even slow down the aging of your cells in
many ways that we can measure !
So what are some of the simpler changes that a person
could make which would impact their cellular aging
and the years of their lives untroubled with chronic
diseases? ( Because we all know that it’s not much of
a benefit to live longer if we are suffering with multiple
painful and disabling health conditions. )
First of all, if one is a smoker…I would strongly
recommend that quitting smoking would provide
a very significant benefit toward prevention of chronic
obstructive pulmonary disease, emphysema, cardiovascular
disease, hypertension, stroke, asthma, cancers of all kinds,
acquired diabetes mellitus, and skin aging.
Next I would recommend that a person work toward
optimizing their weight. Excess fat, especially the fat
layer surrounding the vital organs, is very damaging
to all organs of the body. Why is this so ?
Answer: Part of the answer to this question is just
common sense. If a person increases his total body
volume of fat ….. did the heart increase its capacity
to pump blood to that extra tissue? Did the liver
ramp up its detoxification potential to service this additional
fat layer? Did the kidneys find a way to do more work
to cleanse the blood of the additional waste products
produced by this excess fat tissue? Is the bone marrow
and immune system able to add more capacity by forming
more white blood cells, macrophages,and anti-tumor
antibodies to seek out and destroy invading bacteria,
viruses, fungi, and cancer cells( which all of us are
forming all of the time ) ????
Are our vital organs able to do all of this extra work
without suffering more rapid aging and damage?
Of course…the answer to all of these questions is…
But that’s not ALL that is in play here…
It turns out that recent research studies have revealed
that this deep layer of visceral fat accumulation is also
functioning as a rogue ” endocrine ” organ !
This means that this tissue is secreting cytokines which
influence hormone production throughout the body
and also is affecting many complex systems of
intracellular and intercellular message signaling !
NOW THIS CAN REALLY CROSS YOU UP !!!
SO …we must control this visceral fat buildup in order
to prevent the onset of chronic diseases!
