1: Aging healthy requires some work. Eating a good diet and avoiding stress along with taking care of any disorders you may have go a long way. But the truth is the loss of your hormones is the major cause of aging. So, the loss of hormones leads to breakdown of the body and acccelerates aging. Seeing a healthcare practitioner who can help in this area is a great start to a happy healthy long life.
