Pick up any woman’s magazine and you will most certainly find at least one article on looking younger and feeling your best. The advertisements inside will include anti-aging creams, make-ups to help you ‘turn back time’ and clothing that both flatters and makes the wearer look younger than they are. The business of helping women combat aging is booming. More and more, you’ll find anti-aging products and services aimed at men, too. Some are finding, however, that merely looking younger isn’t enough. Slowing down the march of time isn’t enough if you don’t feel young, too.
Consider the life work of Dominique Fradin-Read. Here is a woman who has studied her whole adult life to assist people with the creation of a lifestyle that will both combat the aging process and prevent disease. Dr. Dominique Fradin-Read takes a whole person approach to accomplishing these goals. Her studies have led her to start a clinic, VitaLife-MD that includes a patient’s physical, mental and emotional health as parts of the process of helping people to be as healthy as possible. Living longer, achieving happiness and maintaining general health are all goals her clinic has for each patient. Rather than isolating only the idea of looking younger, Dr. Fradin-Read and VitaLife-MD encourages people to live in such a way that aging is achieved gracefully.
Of course, if you’re looking for the ageless look without a significant lifestyle change of a holistic nature, you could look into cosmetic procedures. Some, like Botox, microdermabrasion and cool sculpting aren’t very invasive and have little to no recovery time. These are temporary, though, and you will need to repeat the procedure according to the schedule upon which you and your doctor or technician agree. You may, however, opt for something more permanent. Breast augmentations, face lifts and tummy tucks are perennially popular for a reason: they work at decreasing the signs of aging. Some procedures have dual benefits. For example, liposuction doesn’t just take away unneeded fat deposits, the removal of those deposits positively affects the health of your heart.
The explosion in the dietary supplement market can be partially attributed to people’s desire to feel better and combat the signs of aging. Certain nutritional aides have been shown to plump skin by increasing its’ ability to retain moisture and therefore look younger and healthier. Others have demonstrated the ability to combat sun damage.
Whichever your path to youthful radiance, you’ll need to ensure the process works best for you.
