A STRONG IMMUNE SYSTEM
For the past 27 years I only go to Complementary and Alternative Medicine doctors because only they treat the cause and not the symptoms of what makes us ill. I learned long ago how to strengthen the immune system naturally. A strong immune system is vital to not just keeping you from getting sick but also preventing disease and promoting Anti-Aging. Immunology works on so many different fronts as far as overall health. When you supplement your diet with plenty of antioxidants via fruits, vegetables and supplements, your immune system will have that one-two punch to win the fight against free radical cells.
The more free radical cells that can be terminated by antioxidants, the more harmful cells can also be killed by your white blood cells. When this happens it slows down the aging process since free radical cells promote aging.
Not only did I learn about immunology but I practice and live it every day for the past 27 years. Normally I only use vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and a lot of antioxidants to keep me well. If I should get sick, which is very rare, I will sometimes use an over-the-counter (OTC) medicine if it’s really needed.
I eat as healthy (organic) as I possibly can by avoiding certain foods, I don’t smoke, I exercise when I can and at the age of 51 I still feel and look young. Look at my picture on my About Me page. Do I look 51 years old? Plus I go to a doctor who practices CAM (Complementary and Alternative Medicine), so a prescription drug is normally not the first thing he will offer as a solution.
If you truly want to live a healthy lifestyle you need to go to a doctor that is not going to treat you with medication first. My doctor teaches his patients how to treat themselves when they get sick. Did you know that healing yourself from the flu is also the same treatment that you would use to heal yourself from any other type of viral infection? If you are thinking that what I just said was wrong because you cannot get antibiotics without a doctor’s prescription, well you do not need antibiotics for any type of viral infection. Plain and simple, antibiotics do not work for viral infections. Even the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) says so in its advertisement photo on my The Facts page.
FINDING A DOCTOR
Having a doctor that would rather promote actual health care instead of sick care which most conventional medicine doctors practice, will benefit you greatly going forward. More and more people are turning to CAM and Anti-Aging doctors for effective solutions. In turn there are also some doctors who are leaving the general mindset of conventional medicine and are going back to school to learn nutrition, which surprisingly is not taught in western medical schools.
So are you wondering how to find a CAM and/or Anti-Aging doctor? Well I have an easy solution for you, which is something I didn’t have when I first started down the road to better health care. There are two different websites that can greatly help you in finding an MD.
THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF ANTI-AGING MEDICINE
This website contains a large list of all types of Anti-Aging and CAM doctors. Even my doctor is listed in here. Just go to their directory page and fill in the amount of miles from where you live that you are willing to search, your zip code or your city and state and click Search. Each doctor will have their name, address and phone number plus a description of the types of medicine they practice. Some doctors also have links to their websites. There are definitely a lot of doctors within this directory listing.
