Getting older is truly a privilege – a collection of experiences, wisdom, choices and opportunites
Society tends to tell us that aging is a mostly negative experience and we need to accept (or expect) a reduced capacity of physical and mental health – not to mention an acceptance of all that goes with the freedoms that good health offers.
In truth, every Birthday celebrated is a reason for happiness and joy. A celebration for all that ‘life’ offers daily. In gratitude for the opportunity of sharing the pleasures (& challenges) of living each day, we need to respect our bodies with the awareness to create change as required and the presence to make choices that contribute to our wellbeing – all essential ingredients to optimal aging.
Celebrate; give your existence meaning; take advantage of every moment; share your knowledge and wisdom with those you hold dear …
How well is your lifestyle supporting your healthy aging? How willing are you to be active in maintaining, managing and understanding your health?
One of the many tools I use to assist and maximise healthy aging and wellbeing is to incorporate a MetaScan™ assessment into your treatment protocol. MetaScan™ is a Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) Quadscan device that allows me to assess your body composition (lean body mass, fat mass, body cell mass), providing insight into important aspects of your cellular health and fluid distribution.
BIA is a science that has been used for monitoring patients in hospital and research settings since the 1980’s. QuadScan is a registered medical device listed with the TGA, Therapeutic Goods Administration and only able to be used by extensively trained and certified MetaScan™ Practioners. The test is completed in a matter of minutes and is painless. Leads are connected to your hands and feet, and low voltage electrical currents are passed through your body.
Your body composition reflects your health, and as muscle mass is a key biomarker of aging, I utilise this information to find the most appropriate approach for you, considering your heath goals and designing a program based on diet, lifestyle, exercise and supplementation to help you maximise your energy and achieve these health goals. We will also monitor your results over time, so that you can see how your health is progressing further supporting your motivation and commitment.
People who may benefit from MetaScan™ Program include those who want to:
- Manage their weight more effectively
- Increase muscle tone and fitness Improve energy levels
- Support healthy aging
- Support the nutrition and health of their body
