A Longevity Program to help you discover how healthy you can be & how young you can feel
Longevity, according to Dr. Michael Wald, means, “living longer with less disability so that you can enjoy all that life has to offer. Is your walking affected? Has your thinking become dulled? Do your joints and muscle ache and do you have one or more health problems that are associated with a reduced quality and length of life?
“My Blooddetective longevity approach is focused upon finding out what foods, nutritional supplements and healthy lifestyle approaches fit your exact needs. There is no magic diet for you! There is only what you need for YOUR needs. Together we investigate with conversation, questionnaires and laboratory work what you need for your personalized healing plan and put it into action!
Dr. Wald, The Blooddetective, sometimes will use tests of longevity including, body composition (including phase angle), |CRP-cardio, homocysteine, fibrinogen, ferritin, MDA, urine calcium, ESR, urine vitamin C and dihydroascorbate because these tests are morbidity and mortality predictors.
If you are interested in longevity then you have come to the right doctor!
Dr. Michael Wald himself practices what he calls, lifestyle longevity practices…& he can teach you what he knows!
Fundamentals of Longevity
So you are interested in living better? Perhaps longer and better? Both are possible, or at least more probable, with proper daily planning. Dr. Wald, shown in the “muscle shot” below at age 53, is interested in feeling young and participating fully in life both physically and mentally. “How do I do it”, Dr Wald says, “Easy! I follow certain lifestyle rules that I developed for myself over the last almost 30 years from researching everything that I could on the topic of nutrition, longevity, disease and biochemistry…among other things. I apply this knowledge to each individual patient that seeks me out to improve their quality of life. This is what I do! I enjoy helping others live the high quality of live and living that I do”.
Genetics predisposition is one major factor that helps determine how we age, but scientists now know that how we eat, our stress levels, the quality of our sleep and relationships, pollution, electromagnetic and other forms of radiation - all may play a role in how our genetics “express”.
Genetic expression simply means how our genetic characteristics show up in our bodies and lives. Genetics may be important, but they can be favorably influenced by healthy daily practices. We may not be able to affect every aspect of our aging process, but we can and do affect our genetic aging whether we know it or not.
For example, if you are genetically predisposed to high cholesterol, but alter your lifestyle favorably by exercising everyday and eating a more plant-based diet, you might entirely eliminate your genetic predisposition and expression of genes that elevate your cholesterol level. The same is true for overweight. If you are genetically predisposed to obesity exercising and eating correcting can and often does reduce one’s genetically propensity to obesity. What about how your body uses nutrition in the form of foods and nutritional supplements?
You are not what you eat! You are instead what you absorb and importantly, what your body activates. For example, if you eat foliage or green leafy vegetables because you want to increase the B-vitamin folic acid in your body then you might be wasting your time. Approximately 10% of the female population do not convert folic acid, a B-vitamin, into its active form called dihydrofolate. The active dihydrofolate form is needed to fight cancer and heart disease, even autoimmune disease and mental illness. You can however consume active folic acid in vitamin supplements.
Vitamins and other nutritional supplements are absolutely needed to maximize longevity. Simply put, you could not eat enough foods to contain the levels of certain nutrients that have been shown in studies to promote various longevity factors like lowering cancer risk and others. If you have a genetic predisposition for high cholesterol for example you might need high levels of folic acid, red rice yeast, polycosanols, vitamin E and CoQ10 - levels that you could never consume in either high enough or reliable amounts in foods. Testing can help to pinpoint how much and of what vitamins, minerals, amino acids, proteins, carbohydrates and healthy fats and phytonutrients you need to maximize your longevity goals. Reducing anxiety, improving sleep, proper exercise, flexibility, elimination of pain, improving memory and maintaining and reaching a healthy body weight are just some of the important factors that Dr. Michael Wald can focus on for you with your Personal Longevity Plan.
