Anti-aging Strategies

by Dr. Michael Lam, M.D.

This is summary of over 100 specific anti-aging strategies that took over a decade to compile. Every strategy is based on scientific research backed by years of clinical experience. They are grouped according to the five pillars of anti-aging medicine: Diet, Exercise, Hormonal Enhancement, Nutritional Supplementation, and Stress Reduction.

Those new to this should read this daily for the first 21 days. A thorough understanding of each strategy is critical before embarking on the journey. Do not adapt any strategy unless you know the reason and the consequences. Certain strategies are uniquely suited for you while others may not. Do what makes sense for you and you alone, as each body is different.

Do not attempt any quick transformation. Most transformation fails because of too high an expectation in too limited a time. Go slowly, one step at a time. Your body has gone through a lifetime of damage. Recovery and rejuvenation is a process that works best when slow and steady. The path to anti-aging is a marathon and not a sprint.

Complete fulfillment of these strategies requires significant lifestyle adjustments for most. No one is expected to adopt 100 percent of the recommended strategies all the time. A successful execution of the anti-aging strategies takes generally from 1 to 3 years. Consider yourself doing well if you can follow 25% of the strategies within 90 to 180 days, 50% of the strategies within 1 to 2 years, and 75% of the strategies within 2 to 3 years. The body is a miraculous machine. It is very forgiving and does rejuvenate, starting at the cellular level.

Expect to see some results 30 to 90 days after you have embarked on the strategies you have chosen. Select easy strategies first and slowly work your way into more difficult ones. Rome was not built in one day. Concentrate on learning, listening, and loving your body and it will take care of you.

While there is no absolute in life, it should be remembered that the law of averages still applies in anti-aging.

Nevertheless, those who follow these anti-aging strategies statistically will generally feel:

Our life expectancy has already doubled in the past century, from 43 to 76 for those in developed countries. This is largely due to discovery of antibiotics and successful execution of anti-aging strategies such as these. They have worked in the past and will continue to work in the future. Longevity is 70 percent determined by lifestyle and 30 percent related to genetics. What you can do is to work on the lifestyle-related 70 percent today, since therapeutic modalities for the other genetically-related 30 percent is still years away from reality.
