Optimal Health sets the stage for “Successful Aging.”  Careful attention to these six areas is crucial to maintain Optimal health, mental and functional capacity. In short, Living "The Inside Outside Way of Life!®"

1.   Injury Prevention.  Injuries, intentional and unintentional are the main cause of death and disability for ages 1-35.  We must realize that "Self Injury" related to Smoking, Poor Diet and Physical Inactivity and Alcohol/Drug abuse are the primary "Actual Causes" of Death in our country.

Physical Inactivity and Poor Nutrition Catching up to Tobacco as Actual Cause of Death, CDC Data charts

2.   Checkups & Screening Procedures.  Routine Screening for Serious Chronic Disease, Functional Screening for Silent Metabolic Disease, and Genetic Screening for Predisposition to Chronic Disease. Being, as Dr. Steven cover writes in "The 7 Habits of Effective People", "Proactive, Not Reactive", "Putting First Things First" and "Sharpen the Saw".

Recommendations for Adults

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) was convened by the Public Health Service to rigorously evaluate clinical research in order to assess the merits of preventive measures, including screening tests, counseling, immunizations, and preventive medications.

3.   Nutritional Education and Screening.  Everyone should learn and follow a good anti-inflammatory MacroNutrition program like the “Zone” or "Paleo" to control Insulin levels and ensure adequate amounts of High Quality Protein. Start a reasonable  MicroNutrition program with lots of Omega 3 to help prevent the chronic diseases of aging, slow the aging process & assist with your exercise program.  Pay special attention to your Gut Health!  Plus, Adequate Omega 3, Polyphenols and Systemic Proteases will reduce inflammation.

5.   Hormone Optimization.  As we age, important hormones decline and other harmful hormones increase.  Nutritional and Lifestyle changes may lower the level of harmful hormones and make the good ones more effective.  There is increasing evidence that restoring some of the hormones which decrease as we age to achieve youthful levels may be of benefit.   Omega 3 fats help balance the Important “Good” and “Bad” powerful hormones called “Eicosanoids”.

6.   Stress Recognition and Management.  Too much stress can have a profound affect on your health.  Learn how stress affects your body and what you can do  to diminish the harm. Developing a good Support System and Sleep habits goes a long way!
