“The beginning of the disease process
begins with postural distortions.”
– Dr Hans Selye, Nobel Laureate
Do you have to be old to feel old? Accelerated Aging, by Keith Wassung, unpacks the myth that aging occurs only with time. He discusses why your genetics don’t dictate your health, and introduces a new way of thinking about how you age.
In this text, the author applies the scientific principles of chiropractic to what we know about the aging process. Many of these involve understanding how the different types of stress—physical, chemical, and emotional—affect our body’s physiology!
The body is constantly analyzing what is happening within the body and what is happening in the environment outside the body and makes adaptive changes as necessary. Aging can best be defined as the gradual loss of the body’s ability to respond to the environment.
When our physiology becomes affected, that our quality of life decreases. Learning how we can minimize and offset the amount of stress on our bodies as early as possible can make a huge difference. Add years to your life, and life to your years!
