Healthy ageing, enjoying a healthy life
The concept of healthy ageing often tends to be distorted and twisted, but it is simply ageing well to enjoy life with good health.
Behind every healthy ageing programme, there are two key objectives: slowing down the process of cellular degeneration associated with ageing and reactivating each person’s ability to be healthy.
A study published in the journal Nature put the number of cells in our body at 30 trillion, each with an average life span of between seven and ten years. Some are replaced in a few hours and others take many years—if they are replaced at all—depending on their location, function, and actions.
With the passage of time and our progressive ageing, our organism’s ability to regenerate cells progressively deteriorates, sometimes at a faster rate than other people’s organisms. This is something we can influence: firstly, with a lifestyle full of healthy habits and, secondly, with specific action plans.
Increasing life expectancy
If addressing our ageing process has always been a priority, it is even more so now that we know how life expectancy has increased over the last few decades. It is no longer just a matter of living longer, something that has definitely been made possible thanks to science; it is a matter of living better, something that is often in our own hands. It is about living a life free of disease.
Our aim is not only to prevent or slow down premature ageing after discovering the causes; we also want to naturally stimulate and reconstruct the various metabolic processes and systems required on a case-by-case basis. The first thing we must know is our real state of health to determine our biological age.
SHA Wellness Clinic’s anti-ageing therapies
Any healthy ageing programme must be geared towards helping participants lead a healthy life and preventing diseases and discomforts that tend to emerge as we age over the years.
We begin the Healthy Ageing programme by discovering the state of health of each person, something that can only be done thanks to a meticulous study with a multidisciplinary approach focusing on genetic, hormonal, nutritional, and biochemical aspects. Our aim is to determine which diagnostic tests or treatments are the most appropriate to improve our quality of life.
The diagnostic tests assess different aspects, depending on the profile of the individual and the objectives they would like to achieve:
- Evaluation of biological age
- Finding toxic mineral elements
- Determining cognitive capacity levels
- Measuring hypersensitivity to metals and allergens
- Studying the state of our immune system
- Carrying out a sleep study
- Analysing for possible levels of depression or stress
- Sensitivity to certain foods
- Migraine test
- Hormone study
- Measuring the antioxidant capacity of the blood
Healthy ageing can only be achieved by incorporating healthy habits into our lives, mainly in areas that have to do with nutrition, physical activity, and mind-body balance.
SHA Wellness Clinic’s methodology includes a firm commitment to natural therapies and designing a completely personalised diet, physical exercise, and health plan with body and mind discipline sessions.
We will complete the programme by creating a set of lifestyle recommendations and activities that will allow guests to learn new healthy habits that will complete their real anti-ageing process and allow them to enjoy a new, healthier life.
