Most Cost Effective Antiaging Remedies

I have just turned 44 this past month, and have really taken a good look in the mirror. I need to lose weight and get healthy.

I am a female, quit smoking 4 months ago (after close to 30 years of smoking) basically good health, other that a lot of wrinkling in my face, neck and chest area.

I am on a limited budget and don’t want to even consider plastic surgery or anything like that, but what can I do at home to stop some of this aging.

What would you recommend? What would you consider the best vitamins and lotions for a person at different age levels with out it costing an arm and leg? Thank you for your help in these areas.

Hi Lori,

Thanks for your question!

Before I make recommendations for nutritional supplements, I want to emphasize that diet is extremely important to what you want to achieve. Get all the junk food out of your diet. Avoid these foods like the plague:

Fried foods
Hydrogenated Fats
High Fructose Corn Syrup
Processed Carbohydrates
Soda Pop

Here is what I would recommend in order of importance:

A “low glycemic” diet of fresh fruits and vegetables and some lean animal proteins such as organically raised grass fed beef, wild non-farm raised fish (yes there ARE fish farms), and organically raised fowl (chicken, turkey).

Only eat whole unprocessed grains such as oats, wild rice, and barley but very sparingly.

Take a good comprehensive mutli-vitamin/mineral supplement on a daily basis.

Take a good quality pharmaceutical grade fish oil on a daily basis. (note: Never buy fish oil in a store that is not stored under refrigeration)

Take a good quality full spectrum antioxidant formula on a daily basis.

The key to antiaging nutrition is using foods and supplements to reduce free radicals and inflammation in your body. Since free radicals create oxidative stress and inflammation, anything you can do to reduce this will have great benefits for your health.

Considering your health history, the best thing to do would be to educate yourself on diet, exercise, and health by reading and doing your own research. I can give you guidelines, but it will make so much more sense to you when you understand it yourself, because you have educated yourself and done your own research.

I would also strongly suggest that you find a good antiaging doctor in your area to help you manage your wellness.

Most people have a primary care doctor for themselves and it makes so much more sense to me to see a doctor that actually believes in limiting the effects of the aging process rather than just manage the decline in your health with drugs that treat symptoms rather than addressing root causes of chronic illness and eliminating them.

Let me put it this way. If your house were on fire and you called the fire department, would you want them to “manage” the fire, or would you want them to put the fire out?

See a doctor that is committed to “fighting” the aging process, rather than one who believes in “managed decline.” You will be much healthier for it!
