Tuesday, May 20 & Tuesday, June 10 “Aging Gracefully” lectures
These free lectures are presented by Patrick Yassini, MD, and Anne Boston Parish, RN, of the not-for-profit Integrative Health Institute. “The aging process effects all of us in different ways,” says Dr. Yassini. “Genetics and lifestyle choices all have a role to play. But directing the show is our body’s hormone levels. As we grow older, changing levels of hormones lead to many uncomfortable symptoms we attribute to “normal” aging. These changes not only impact the quality of our lives but also promote chronic disease and long term prescription drug use. The good news is that, in many cases, simply restoring natural hormones to optimal levels will allow you to experience renewed energy, restore youthfulness, and live a longer, full-quality life, just as nature intended.”
