Antiaging is the newest and most exciting area of health and wellness. This is because the baby boomers, which make up a significant part of the population, are aging and trying to find ways to stay and feel young. Life extension has increased dramatically in the United States since 1900 and will continue to increase. In fact it is suggested that life expectancy in the mid-twenty-first century will be 85 years. People are and will be living longer and longer. However, people do not want to simply live a long life. They want to have a high quality long life.
Many diseases that people die from are degenerative in nature and not solely from their genetics. Genetic and heredity factors typically account for only 10% - 33% of a person's physical health status. Therefore we have significant control over how long we will live.
This course will teach a person the factors and influences associated with aging and what can be done to perhaps slow the aging process. It will also cover strategies to living a longer and healthier life. The course begins with aging statistics and then begins discussing the variables associated with aging. These include exercise, stress and emotions, social relationships and religion, alcohol, smoking, antioxidants and their role in relationship to cancer and heart disease, food quantity and weight control, diet types, habits and patterns, antiaging foods and beverages such as fruits, vegetables, garlic, fish, grains, nuts, legumes, soy, chocolate, yogurt, water, wine and tea. Nutrient deficiencies and hormones will also be discussed since they also can affect aging.
Once the course is completed you will receive the antiaging manual and outline. These tools allow you to administer an antiaging program.
This course may be taken by allied health professions including but not limited to Massage Therapists, Chiropractic Physicians, Athletic Trainers, Chiropractic Assistants, Occupational Therapists/Assistants, and Physical Therapists/Assistants.
