    Ailments Of Middle Age Thrive Over 45!
    Approaching or being beyond the age of 45 one recognises that health-wise, THINGS CHANGE!

    The guidelines for disease prevention and keeping well (of which most of us are aware) on the whole, are pretty clear:

  • Maintain a healthy weight, including lean muscle mass.
  • Good quality and adequate duration of sleep.
  • Optimal mental health including manageable stress levels.
  • Regular exercise.
  • Not just a healthy and nutritious diet but also a therapeutic one.

  • From a naturopathic perspective, I'd add to the mix:

  • Take immediate action if blood test results or other medical assessments are less than perfect.
  • Aim to consume a therapeutic diet that is anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory while promoting optimal liver and gut function.

  • Check-in with your naturopath at least yearly to gauge any symptoms or health issues to prevent ailments from worsening. Signs and symptoms are an excellent barometer for drawing attention to underlying issues that can be addressed naturopathically and may require further testing. For example, testing for genetic influences on methylation and other areas as well as analysis of the gut microbiome.

    This can all seem simple and just common sense however it is often a struggle for many to maintain good health as the body changes. As the body is getting older, even though one may look truly youthful it requires quite significant dietary and lifestyle adjustments. Altering eating and other lifestyle factors are often tremendously difficult to implement and stick to. This is further complicated by the barrage of information available from multiple forums which can often lead to confusion and analysis paralysis.

    Whether the challenge is dealing with aches and pains, perimenopausal weight gain, sleep concerns, middle age spread, low energy or mood or the desire for disease prevention and longevity: a naturopathic and wholistic approach has a crucial role to play in assessing and educating clients then providing clarity and tools for living a healthy yet balanced lifestyle to age well.
