DR. ELAHI SHARES THE LATEST MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES PROVEN TO HELP HEALTHY AGING
AUGUST IS NATIONAL WELLNESS MONTH. It’s a Great Time to Focus on Improving your Health.
The second half of our lives doesn’t need to be scary or limiting in any way. With age comes more confidence and wisdom, attributes which can enhance our life experience.
Understanding how we age and what we can do age healthily is a surefire way to ensure we will get to enjoy our golden years.
Given that August is National Wellness Month, we thought it appropriate to look at ways we can delay the aging process, and cheat mother nature.
What Factors Influence Healthy Aging?
Aging is a natural process; however, how we age depends on many factors, including genetics, lifestyle habits, and the environment.
Although there is no magic recipe for aging gracefully, science has identified many factors that could have a positive influence in our natural aging process.
The National Institute on Aging lists the following factors as those that can help us maintain function and remain healthy as we age.
Healthy Aging Influencer #1: Exercise and Physical Activity
An active lifestyle is considered the cornerstone of healthy aging.
Regular exercise and physical activity can significantly lower our risk of developing chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure.
Medical Tip: Stay Active!
Moreover, some types of physical activity can help us maintain our strength and avoid injuries, for example:
Strength Training: It can help us maintain healthy muscle mass and reduce our risk of developing osteoporosis.
Balance Training: This type of exercise can reduce our chances of falling and injuring ourselves.
Flexibility and Stretching Exercising: By keeping our bodies flexible, we can keep doing the things we love for longer.
Healthy Aging Influencer #2: Fat Stores
Aside from the aesthetic aspect, weight plays a significant role in our health. Being overweight can increase our risk of developing chronic illnesses such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, and stroke.
However, research has shown that as we age, it’s not only how much we weight that should concern us, but how much fat we have and where our fat deposits lie.
Waist circumference and waist to hip fat ratios tell a story about our overall health. For years we’ve known that pear-shaped bodies are generally healthier than those with an apple shape which store fat in the waist and upper body.
Revivify Medical Spa has the perfect solution to help you maintain a healthy waist to hip fat ratio and look fabulous:

Health Aging Influencer #4: Hormones

However, as we age, the production of certain hormones can become out of balance. Possible symptoms of a hormonal imbalance include:
- Feeling tired for no reason
- Mood swings
- Gain weight
- Lackluster skin
- Loss of muscle tone
