Okay, nobody lives forever, but that doesn’t mean that we have to throw in the towel and submit to aging badly.
Problem is, the things we’re doing to better our health and prolong our lives are often exactly the wrong things to do.
To my dismay, I discovered that recently when I invited the founders of Miami-based Rewind Anti-Aging Group onto the Fried On Business program.
Dr. Mark Zhuk and Brian Burk spent some time discussing their technological approach to better health.
“What we’ve realized is there’s an epidemic of middle-aged people who are just tired. They’re at the prime of their life, and they’re missing all the energy they need,” Zhuk said.
Very often, that describes me, but I still wanted to plead my case. After all, I’m doing all the right things. I get up in the morning, sometimes pretty early, have some coffee and make the most healthy shake I know how to make. It has all of the healthy stuff you read about in the nutrition articles.
I also hit the gym on a regular basis.
But Burk said no-go. Many clients, he said, eat lots of fruits, but they don’t realize the physiological implications. Fruit is additional sugar. When you eat extra sugar all day long, you’re creating peaks and valleys in your blood sugar level, and you’re forcing your body to create more insulin. As a result, you store more fat.
Diet is one of the first things they examine at Rewind Anti-Aging Group, Burk said, adding that my blood work revealed that I’m eating too many carbs, not enough protein and not enough healthy fat.
Second, he said I’m working out at a disadvantage. My testosterone is, obviously, not what it was in my 20s, so the workouts aren’t delivering nearly the benefit they could be.
“We’re working twice as hard for half the results,” he said.
So, what to do? Well, after a blood test to examine critical things like testosterone, DHEA, Vitamin D and IGFs (insulin-like growth factors), Zhuk recommends a daily supplement that contains tadalafil, the active ingredient in Cialis.
“We promote low-dose, daily tadalafil to anyone middle age because it protects your arteries. It affects the biggest organ in your body, the endothelium, which is the lining of your arteries,” he said.
Beyond that, Burk said he emphasizes:
– Dumping processed foods. It’s an easy way to get rid of a lot of chemicals and sugar.
– Less emphasis on carbs. More emphasis on salads, egg whites, grilled meats, and the like.
– Above all, accountability to yourself and the Rewind Anti-Aging Group program.
