The range of treatments for aging
“Growing older but still feeling young.” That’s what everyone wants.
We’re all getting older and the years leave their mark on everyone in some way. No one comes out unscathed, especially those in the public eye or show business who are subjected to immense pressure as they age.
In society, older people are often devalued and viewed as “faded”, “less attractive” and “no longer up to the task”. Of course, there are some remedies for this, namely cosmetics and cosmetic surgery.
However, these can only help to a certain extent – and only externally. As your commitments change, you get overlooked for certain roles, your spouse starts looking for someone younger or you start to despair that all of this is out of your control… aging can severely impair your quality of life and even lead to depressive behaviour.
Things to look out for
- An obsession with clinging on to youth
- Dwindling self-worth
- Fear of loss
What is actually happening when we age?
Of course, ageing itself is not a disease. Though it’s a natural process that affects each and every one of us, the exact processes involved are still not yet fully understood. What is certain, however, is that an essential factor in ageing is that the body’s cells gradually lose their ability to divide with increasing age.
When cell division slows down, fewer new cells are formed overall. This means that damage to our body, which is caused every day by internal and external influences, becomes increasingly difficult to repair. Therefore appearance and functions, especially that of organs, gradually deteriorate more and more.
How is aging most visible?
Aging manifests itself through a variety of internal and external changes in the body. The most significant symptoms of aging include:
The first signs of ageing are particularly noticeable on the skin. From around the age of thirty, the skin gradually becomes thinner and drier and loses its elasticity. At first, only fine lines appear. Then, more or less pronounced wrinkles show up. In addition, the pigment distribution in the skin changes and dark pigment and age spots increasingly form, especially in areas that were previously exposed to the sun.
- Eyes and ears
From around the age of 40, the elasticity of the eye lens decreases so much that close-up vision (i.e. reading, screen work, etc.) becomes increasingly difficult. Almost everyone over the age of 40 therefore needs glasses to compensate for this loss of lens function. Hearing also deteriorates with age. First of all, the higher tones start to disappear. Especially if there is a lot of background noise, it becomes increasingly difficult to follow a conversation. Previous hearing damage caused by noise now becomes more noticeable.
- Blood vessels
Over the years, the blood vessels also change. On the one hand, they lose elasticity and can no longer expand as easily when the blood flow increases. In addition, waste products from the blood (plaque) gradually accumulate on the inside of the vessel walls and reduce their diameter. The resulting narrowing of the blood vessels is also called arteriosclerosis. What’s more, on one hand, there is reduced blood flow to the downstream organs and, on the other, there is an increase in blood pressure. As a result, the risk of heart attack and stroke increases.
- Bones and joints
When, around the age of 50, oestrogen levels drop sharply in women after the menopause, this also affects the bone structure. The bones become more porous and brittle and osteoporosis can occur. Men can also develop osteoporosis. However, thanks to the much slower decline in testosterone, the breakdown here is much more gradual. In addition to the bones, the cartilage tissue in the joints also becomes thinner and more brittle, so that increased wear and tear and painful movement restrictions can occur. From around the age of 30, without targeted training, the proportion of muscle mass also continuously decreases – fat tissue, on the other hand, increases.
- Digestion, metabolism and immune system
With age, the basal metabolic rate also decreases. This means that the body needs fewer and fewer calories and, with a constant energy intake, you gain weight accordingly. Nutrients are no longer efficiently absorbed through the intestines, which can lead to an undetected supply deficiency. The immune system works more slowly too. This makes it easier for infections, autoimmune diseases, tumours and cancers to develop. In addition, wounds take longer to heal.
- Understanding and the brain
Last but not least, the brain’s efficiency also decreases with increasing age. This can lead to problems with attention and concentration. The capacity for short-term memory also decreases and cases of forgetfulness may increase.
Stay naturally beautiful and grow older healthily!
Aging itself cannot be stopped, but the negative effects of aging on appearance and health can be significantly delayed and mitigated. Today we know that, in addition to genetic predisposition, a number of other factors influence the aging process. If these are targeted well, you can achieve a biological age far below your chronological age.
Factors influencing aging
Gerontologists believe that genes determine only about 25 to 30 per cent of how old we become. External influences, especially our lifestyle and our behaviour, have a much greater influence on the aging process:
Those who want to stay young as long as possible should follow a healthy and balanced diet which gives the body all necessary nutrients and vital substances. It’s also important that calorie content is adapted to individual needs in order to avoid gaining weight. Being overweight increases the probability of getting many diseases and causes the body to age more quickly.
- Alcohol and cigarettes
Alcohol and nicotine are cellular toxins and have been shown to contribute to faster aging. Alcohol should therefore only be consumed in moderation and tobacco smoke should be avoided altogether.
Regular exercise boosts metabolism, lubricates the joints, builds muscle and increases calorie consumption.
- Environmental factors
Frequent and extensive sunbathing has an extremely negative effect on the ageing process and are particularly damaging to the skin. High UV exposure promotes skin ageing, leads to early wrinkling and increases the risk of skin cancer. Other environmental pollutants, such as exhaust fumes in the air or environmental toxins from plastics, pesticides, etc. also damage cells. Therefore, these should be avoided as much as possible.
A particularly important factor in maintaining youthfulness is the avoidance of stress. Negative stress, especially long-term stress, not only feels bad, but has also been shown to age cells faster. Furthermore, stress weakens the immune system, so that many diseases, such as heart problems, can also develop more easily. Effective stress management, sustainable balance and inner satisfaction are therefore essential factors for staying young, resilient and productive for longer.
Better aging therefore combines outer beauty with inner health and only works holistically!
In principle, then, we all hold the key to maintaining a young biological age, well below our chronological age. However, this requires a series of long-term disciplined behaviours, which in many cases requires a comprehensive lifestyle change. Implementing this on our own and without professional support is not exactly easy.
We’re happy to support you!
The CALDA Clinic therefore offers you an individually tailored one-on-one therapy in line with the CALDA Concept.
