Aging and Health

Although the risk of disease and disability clearly increases with advancing age, poor health is not an inevitable consequence of aging. Western Medicine attributes the symptoms of aging to deficiencies in sex hormones including estrogen and testosterone. However, Traditional Chinese Medicine views the underlying cause of pre-mature aging as menopausean energy deficiency. The Huangdi Neijing (Yellow Emperor’s Internal Classic) states: “one who is over 40 years of age will only have half of his yin-qi left” – this means the body’s fundamental substances and physiological functions declines greatly in one’s 40s.

To age healthfully, people need to protect their qi and essence, and this involves maintaining overall good health, eating a balanced diet, having the proper amount of sleep, a positive mood, and avoiding extreme stimulation from the outside environment. Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture for anti-aging is a great way to improve the longevity of your body and halt pre-mature or unhealthy aging.
