Do You Know How Old are Your Cells?
Posted December 23, 2013 in Uncategorized
If there was a way to test your cells and find out your actual biological age, would you be interested? Age is much more than just numbers on a calendar. Our genetics, the way we care for our bodies and even environmental factors have an important impact on how the body ages. Finding your biological age can help you find and correct lifestyle and nutritional choices that speed aging, slowing the clock and leading to better overall wellness.
Life Length’s Telomere Analysis Testing (TAT) does just that. It analyses cells, examining the telomeres to determine actual biological age. It is the only test in the world that can precisely measure the percentage of short telomeres and provides a priceless insight into an individual’s overall health. Don’t wonder how your cells are aging; find out so you can take corrective action and prevent common age related diseases.
What are Telomeres?
On the end of each strand of DNA are protective end caps known as telomeres. These DNA sequences protect the cells as they divide, ensuring stability. Each time a cell divides the telomeres shorten, leading to aging. Analyzing telomere length can provide a valuable insight into a cell’s biological age and its overall health.
Shortening telomeres are an expected part of aging, with age related problems (like infertility, cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, etc.) becoming more common when telomeres reach a critically short stage. Measuring telomeres and comparing biological age with chronological age can help a person determine if their lifestyle is preserving youth or accelerating aging.
Life Length Testing and Anti-Aging Medicine
Dr. Berger uses the Life Length Telomere Analysis Testing as an essential element in his anti-aging programs. This testing combined with lifestyle management, nutritional and fitness counselling, hormone replacement therapy and other treatments can help patients to achieve optimal biological age, feeling younger and staying healthier.
Dr. Berger has learned that age is much more than just a number. We don’t have to let time wreak havoc on our bodies. By understanding how the body ages and by taking stops to slow, stop and reverse this process, you can avoid many of the common symptoms of aging. Time marches on, but we don’t have to let it march over us.
