In the fight against aging, most of us need all the help we can get. The following are the five theories anti-aging experts attribute to its causes, amplification and prevention.
The activation of the immune system-due to an infection, allergen or toxin-leads to internal inflammation at the cellular level. Poor nutrition, too little sleep, and radiation are common culprits of low-grade inflammation, which has been linked to arthritis, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and heart disease.
What we eat (too much sugar, fat and sodium), drink (too much soda, juice, etc.), do (get overstressed, work too much), don’t do (exercise or sleep enough), and what we expose ourselves to can speed up the aging process and the development of chronic diseases.
Levels of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, thyroid and/or human growth hormone drop as we age. But by increasing these all-important biochemicals, it may be possible to improve health and forestall the aging process. A controversial approach, hormone therapy requires oversight by an experienced physician.
Call it the “rusting” theory. As we get older, we’re subject to oxidative stress, the byproduct of free-radical damage, a natural process in which unstable molecules disrupt cell and tissue functioning. Antioxidants such as vitamins A, C, and E, glutathione and alpha lipoic acid can help protect cells.
When the body can’t rid itself of toxins, including high amounts of sugar, trans fat, mercury and chemicals we ingest from our food, its equilibrium is impaired, leading to fatigue, poor skin, heart disease, cancer and more. Detoxification and inflammation are closely linked.

Our bodies become inundated with pollution, chemicals and toxins on a regular basis. It’s important to cleanse and detoxify your body periodically. There will eventually be an overload of toxins that show up as disease or illness. Managing your bodies toxic load by cleansing allows you to maintain a healthy balance and create conditions for longevity and radiance.
The Bottom Line-
Removing toxins from your body allows for better absorption of vitamins, nutrients and minerals so that the food we consume can be used properly. A juice cleanse can give the body a rest and free up energy used to digest food so that the body can heal specific conditions it needs to address.
Eating healthy and drinking plenty of water and fresh pressed juices helps, but so can healthy breathing, colonics, infrared saunas and hot yoga- to detox trapped metals and toxins via sweat.
