Where Is The Fountain Of Youth?
We get older and older every day and with aging comes a commitment to maintaining youth. Many Americans look to doctors for answers, willing to pay thousands of dollars for anti-aging treatments or therapy that will keep them looking 10 – 20 years younger. Doctors make billions worldwide prescribing hormones like HGH (Human Growth Hormones), Estrogen, Progestin, and other concoctions that are not even proven remedies to the aging process. Before you fall into this trend, which contributes a billion dollar income for doctors worldwide, understand the facts. No matter what, we will age naturally due to genetics, heredity, and how well we take care of our mind and bodies. Hormone therapy is not safe and has only been proven to increase your risks of heart disease and cancer. If there were a safe anti-aging treatment that actually worked, it would be well known. Since this is not the case, doctors all over the world have been testing different methods and using people as lab rats to see what works and what doesn’t. Even more, they charge you thousands of dollars to try out their methods. HGH therapy is banned and should only be used to cure rare cases of people with adult growth hormone deficiencies. All other hormone treatments have other purposes. Supplements created for anti-aging have not been approved by the FDA (Federal Drug Administration) meaning you never know what you are taking and the side effects can have a lasting, negative impact.
There is no magic potion that will keep you looking young as you grow old. The fountain of youth in a bottle is only a dream. The most effective way to decrease the aging process is to exercise regularly, eat healthy, maintain a normal body fat percentage, and avoid the intake of all other substances that are foreign to your body, such as smoking. Healthy living is the only solution that has been proven to show results. Once you are consistently living a healthy and fit lifestyle, you will be guaranteed to age slower. You will feel better and be at a lower risk of health issues. You will also spend less money on medical treatments and procedures as you age. If you are looking for the fountain of youth, stop wasting your time and plan for more exercise and healthy eating regularly. Take care of your body regularly and you will discover that the fountain of youth is merely a habit.
