Why We Age
According to western medicine, as we age, our hormone levels naturally decline. However, the “neuroendocrine theory of aging” states that the decline of our hormone levels is responsible for many aspects of aging. Additionally, inflammation is a key contributor to most age-related diseases such as heart disease, cancer, dementia, diabetes, arthritis, autoimmune disorders, and many others.
Therefore, when optimal hormone levels can be maintained longer, people age more slowly. By decreasing the body’s overall level of inflammation, the aging process can be slowed or in some cases, reversed.
