and Longer Life
We all were younger once. The good news is that there are a number of ways we can recover much of the youthful health and body we enjoyed.
To do this, we rely on many experts in areas of medicine, nutrition, fitness and related providers of services and products which can help us achieve a younger body and a longer life. Sometimes you will see several competing recommendations presented here, such as in the ongoing debate over whether surgery or natural methods are best in different situations. You can decide which advocates sway you the most, with the benefit of having more information in hand than you had before.
A wide range of reliable sources are evaluated before presenting the facts and opinions on each of these subjects important to our health. For example, the staff at Mayo Clinic provided an assessment of skin creams used for anti-aging treatments so we have passed along their findings here.
A bit of history is sometimes also helpful in seeing that a number of the treatments and methods have been known to be effective for a long time, while others are relatively new and untested. How treatments are used is also important. For example, a small amount of magnesium is essential for a healthy body, but too much of it can be fatal. Some good things can be overdone, like diets or tanning treatments. That is why we seek opinions and facts from many experts. If you have something to contribute, feel free to share it with us.
The ancient Greeks treasured health, beauty and a youthful body, with the personification of these being their goddess Aphrodite -- whom the Romans called Venus. Here we see her in Botticelli's famous painting, springing to life in radient glory and coming ashore at the island of Cyprus in the Mediterranean Sea.
