As soon as we reach adulthood, the entire body begins to age!
Generally, aging is a gradual process, except in the cases of cancers, heart diseases, stroke, depression, and Alzheimer’s. In these lethal illnesses, people experience large bursts of aging mainly due to the defaults of the brain’s neurotransmitters. These electrical signals directly affect negatively in regulating all organs, hormonal glands, and the entire body system. These electrical signals either slow down or speed up in various body parts, thereby accelerating the aging process. Symptoms present themselves in stopping or pausing every part of the body. This occurs through multiple ‘pauses,’ starting in our brain, immune system, heart, blood vessels, hormonal/endocrine system, bones, muscles, skin, senses, lungs, nutrient absorption/assimilation, kidneys, bladder, and DNA/gene decline.
Today’s health care system has been conditioned to address a specific disease or part of the body with medication or surgery and to patch the problem returning to health! However the real fact is that our entire body and internal organs, from head to toe, do not function independently but rather intricately interconnected: each one could be the catalyst that signals a downward spiral of deteriorating health.Slowing the rate of aging starts with the brain by improving its electrical voltage through dopamine; speed of transmission through acetylcholine; rhythm by gamma-amino butyric acid (GABA) – the calming chemical; and synchronicity through serotonin.Nutrients and supplements can increase your brain power and speed of neurotransmitters as well as address specific illnesses.
