UGH! I’M STARTING TO FEEL MY AGE
Aging is a natural part of life and our bodies change. It’s true we are living longer but not necessarily better; many are resigned to thinking there’s little that can be done to slow down many of the changes that come with age. With the right tweaks, you CAN have a body that acts ‘younger’ while holding on to better health.
Do you feel like aging is a burden?
Have you noticed changes in your body and how you feel physically and mentally?
Do you wish there was something you could do to feel, well, more youthful?
Aging brings changes to our skin, our muscle strength can decline, and sometimes our joints start to get stiff or feel achy. Other changes can include more frequents colds, greater risk for the flu, changes in our sense of taste and early signs of eye damage such as cataracts. Some will be told that they have diabetes or that their blood pressure and/or cholesterol are ‘high’. Without fail, a handful of medications follow and we’re told “it’s a fact of life”.
BUT there’s so much more you can do to take control.
Healthy aging is about adopting a nutrition plan that supports your body today AND in the future.
It’s true, aging is a part of life and while we can’t slow down the clock, we can control how we face the future. This is not a bad news story but rather an opportunity to shape how your personal journey unfolds.
This is where the concept of biological age (the functionality of your body) versus chronological age (the actual number) comes in. A person could be 65 years old (chronologically) but have the functionality of a 45 year old (biologically). His or her tests such as blood pressure, lung function, immune responsiveness, bone density, insulin sensitivity etc could be that of someone 15 or more years younger.
Biological age is largely controllable. Your stress levels, whether or not you’re active, engaging muscle-building activity, getting enough sleep all influence biological age.
And of course, so does nutrition.
Successfully aging involves a blend of nourishing your body while fostering a healthy, future-oriented outlook while maintaining a sense of community and connection, acceptance of change and purpose in life. The good news story is that by focusing on research-supported foods and nutrients, many of these accepted ‘ailments’ can be addressed head-on.
Regaining some vigour, youthfulness, and energy IS possible. You can ‘reverse’ many of the losses you’ve experienced through targeted nutritional strategies that will improve your health in the present, and more importantly, over the long run.
What is your approach on battling age-related changes?
Using an integrative & functional approach, I can help you get the most out of life. I leverage nutritional principles and foods that studies have shown to improve health and maintain healthy aging into older age. These strategies have been shown to improve skin texture, improve joint health, reduce the risk for age-related eye disease, cognitive decline, and improve the functioning of the immune system.
Although people tend to eat less as they age, nutrient requirements don’t decrease and many increase. I can help ensure you have the nutrients you need to satisfy all of your body’s requirements. You’ll need a tad more than a ‘general healthy diet’.
Targeted supplementation will take your longevity efforts to the next level which goes beyond basic vitamins and minerals, although ensuring you have the foundational requirements in place is the first step!

They say health is the ultimate wealth; without it, what else matters?
I love that I get to follow my passion and work with people talking about food and integrative & functional nutritional approaches to health, healing and well-being.

Greek physician Herophilus said it best:
“When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied.”

"...I did not know if I would find anyone who would understand my Celiac situation well enough. I was always sick after eating, feeling tired all the time and many symptoms. Now, I am far better than I was, I am still healing but am far better than I was before. I have a lot more confidence with what I can and can't eat, feel more energetic and no longer have problems of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or stomach cramps"
"..you (Doug) gave very clear explanations as to what my problem was and what to do and had genuine concern for my health. The extremely quick responses to my emails, as well as the great support and understanding that I recieved - I would recommend Doug Cook to anyone!!! He is very clear and patient"

“Doug has a knack for taking complex subjects and breaking them down into clear, easy-to-relate-to articles. He takes out the confusion and uncertainty and leaves you with straightforward, useful information that you can put to work in your life right away. It’s obvious how much he cares about his work and the people he’s supporting. I look forward to working with him again in the future!”
"… my homeopath sent me to Doug Cook. She said he was the very best. Doug, in a very calm, down-to-earth manner explained the conditions of my sentence and what could be done to reduce it - for the first time I saw a ray of hope.
He went above and beyond his duties explaining to me at every turn and at every blood test – in detail – what the results meant and what I needed to do thereafter. His knowledge is profound and he goes through great lengths to ensure that I stay on track.
I must tell you that the amazing results I have now – and I am not out of the woods yet – were all thanks to him. He was my cheerleader, my coach, my mentor and my dietitian all is one. Thanks Doug – thanks a million"
“you [Doug] have helped me more than any Doctor. By putting in place a few changes in my diet & using weights I feel for once in my life that everything has come together nicely. I cannot thank you enough”.
“Doug was recommended to me by a family member and his knowledge and support have been instrumental in helping me to understand the relationship between food and diabetes. Since contacting Doug, I have lost weight, maintained steady blood sugar and A1C levels and have felt much healthier and energetic overall. I would highly recommend Doug!”
