Dr. Elahi Shares the Latest Medical Technologies Proven to Help Healthy Aging
AUGUST IS NATIONAL WELLNESS MONTH. It's a Great Time to Focus on Improving your Health.
The second half of our lives doesn’t need to be scary or limiting in any way. With age comes more confidence and wisdom, attributes which can enhance our life experience.
Understanding how we age and what we can do age healthily is a surefire way to ensure we will get to enjoy our golden years.
Given that August is National Wellness Month, we thought it appropriate to look at ways we can delay the aging process, and cheat mother nature.
What Factors Influence Healthy Aging?
Aging is a natural process; however, how we age depends on many factors, including genetics, lifestyle habits, and the environment.
Although there is no magic recipe for aging gracefully, science has identified many factors that could have a positive influence in our natural aging process.
The National Institute on Aging lists the following factors as those that can help us maintain function and remain healthy as we age.
Healthy Aging Influencer #1: Exercise and Physical Activity
An active lifestyle is considered the cornerstone of healthy aging.
Regular exercise and physical activity can significantly lower our risk of developing chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure.
Medical Tip: Stay Active!
Moreover, some types of physical activity can help us maintain our strength and avoid injuries, for example:
Strength Training: It can help us maintain healthy muscle mass and reduce our risk of developing osteoporosis.
Balance Training: This type of exercise can reduce our chances of falling and injuring ourselves.
Flexibility and Stretching Exercising: By keeping our bodies flexible, we can keep doing the things we love for longer.
Healthy Aging Influencer #2: Fat Stores
Aside from the aesthetic aspect, weight plays a significant role in our health. Being overweight can increase our risk of developing chronic illnesses such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, and stroke.
However, research has shown that as we age, it’s not only how much we weight that should concern us, but how much fat we have and where our fat deposits lie.
Waist circumference and waist to hip fat ratios tell a story about our overall health. For years we’ve known that pear-shaped bodies are generally healthier than those with an apple shape which store fat in the waist and upper body.
Revivify Medical Spa has the perfect solution to help you maintain a healthy waist to hip fat ratio and look fabulous:
Medical Tip: Ask About BeautiFill™

Healthy Aging Influencer #3: Diet
We are what we eat. The quality of the food we consume as we age will impact our wellbeing.
As we mentioned before, being overweight increases our risk of developing chronic diseases. Therefore, losing those extra pounds is vital, but we need to make sure we healthily lose weight. Otherwise, we will do more harm than good.
Our Lean Clinic was opened to help you achieve your weight goals safely and fast.
Medical Tip: Ask about Ideal Protein
The Ideal Protein Protocol is a medically engineered ketogenic diet. The program aims to address your relationship with food and help you achieve, and maintain your weight loss goals.
Your weight loss journey will be medically supervised to ensure you are getting all the benefits of the program.
With the Ideal Protein diet, you can expect to:
- Lose excess weight while maintaining healthy muscle mass
- Have more energy
- Understand how different foods interact with your body
- Learn how to make smarter lifestyle choices
Health Aging Influencer #4: Hormones
Our hormone levels change throughout our lives; environmental factors such as stress can cause certain hormone levels to increase or decrease.
However, as we age, the production of certain hormones can become out of balance. Possible symptoms of a hormonal imbalance include:
- Feeling tired for no reason
- Mood swings
- Gain weight
- Lackluster skin
- Loss of muscle tone
If you think you may have a hormone imbalance, don’t worry, we have the solution:
Medical Tip: Ask About BioTe®
