Helping you keep your stride through the ageing process!
Ageing is the metabolic process of getting older. It’s inevitable, we know that. And although everyone is familiar with the concept of ageing, getting older can bring physical and mental hurdles which signal that the body is slowing down. There is no fountain of youth, and if there was, would we want it? There may be elements of the ageing process that can be frustrating, the physical stiffness and delay in reflexes might seem a hindrance at times. Yet by taking antioxidants for protection against free radical damage, by keeping the mind and body agile and promoting healthy circulation, there are ways you can age gracefully without breaking your stride.
|Health concerns||Common symptoms|
|Declining cognitive function due to ageing||Poor recall, reduced ability to recount short and long term events, mental and physical fatigue, lack of focus, reduced mental performance and concentration|
|Libido (low)||Reduced sex drive or sexual disinterest|
|Menopause||A natural change process that can bring a host of symptoms including hot flushes, night sweats, fatigue, depression and vaginal dryness. A small percentage of women may also experience hair loss due to these hormonal changes.|
Here’s what Chinese medicine has to say about Ageing
- Zhang Fu (organs of the body as functional entities) relationships and the state of Qi, Blood and body fluids in terms of Yin and Yang (energy) are important guiding principles for traditional Chinese medicine to regulate the body to achieve health and assist anti ageing.
- From a functional aspect, TCM believes the core of ageing is centred around the five organ systems, the Heart, Liver, Lung, Spleen and Kidney. In other words, internal disharmonies that affect the body's ability to maintain, repair and defend itself as it ages are mainly associated with the Heart, Liver, Lung, Spleen and Kidney.
- Traditional Chinese medicine recognises the relationship between internal health and external vitality. There are multiple concepts of treatment for anti ageing based on herbal medicine, Acupuncture, diet, lifestyle, fresh air and gentle exercise to rejuvenate flow of energy and promote recovery of vitality.
