Can You Stall Aging With Hormones?

From eating healthier to exercising and even turning to expensive cosmetic treatments – as we age, most of do whatever we can to slow down the process. Yet Dr. Hugo C. Verhoeven, a worldwide-recognized anti-aging expert reveals that it is actually hormones that play a huge role in the anti-aging processes.

Four Aspects of Aging

According to Dr. Verhoeven, it is important to understand that anti-aging is not merely exercising, losing weight or Tai Chi. He explains, “There are four major aspects in the anti-aging treatment, each of them is extremely important. Number one is what we eat and especially when.” Aim to avoid fattyfoods from animals with four legs and also, the gap between the last food intake of the day and going to sleep should be long enough so that the evening and night production of human growth hormone can be used for anti-aging purposes and not for digestion and fat production.

The second important must, he adds, is to burn fat and increase blood content of the complete body by exercising. “The third is psychological balance achieved by prayer, meditation, Tai Chi, or another form of relaxation,” he explains and finally, the fourth extremely important part of anti-aging therapy is achieving a hormonal balance. “If one of these four axes is missing, no anti-aging effect of all effort will be obtained,” stresses Dr. Verhoeven. “If there is no hormonal balance, you can exercise as much as you want, you can reduce fat and relax all day, you will age quick and early. Hormones not only affect how we feel but also how we look. “For women, young and old, the main complaint we hear is: we are exercising, dieting, and eating correctly, we have been to the plastic surgeon, but nothing really works on the long term,” he notes.
