Premature Aging and Herbal Remedies
Premature aging is rather peculiar medical condition. It occurs when the cells in human body die faster than new ones are generated. Without diseases of premature aging, people could live up to 120 years.
Typically, obesity, diabetes, cancer and other chronic diseases are the ways in which the aging affects the body, being the result of cellular destruction. With improper diet (high in calories and lacking multivitamins) and the action of other damaging factors (e.g. pesticides and ultraviolet radiation), the body produces vast amounts of highly reactive oxygen molecules, known as free radicals.
These molecules attack healthy cells, accelerating the aging process. Premature aging can be prevented in a number of ways – healthy lifestyle and proper diet are able to protect against free radicals and subsequent chronic diseases.
The first common sign and signal of aging is pain. It is the first alarm that should notify that there is a certain disorder in a definite body part. That may be the result of inflammation, tissue damage, insufficient blood supply, or pressure within an organ or on surrounding tissues. Sometimes diseases just strike a person and he/she finds out about the cancer, heart attack or a stroke. Other obvious signs of the “body’s fading” that are less serious than diseases include loss of hair in men and women needing reading glasses because of presbyopia.
A number of factors causes premature aging of the brain, circulation, heart, joints, skin, digestive tract, and immune system. They include injuries that have not been completely healed, toxic chemicals, allergies, pure nutrition and diet, excessive radiation sunlight, overwhelming stress, and lack of physical activity. Some specialists connect premature aging to genetically inherited peculiarities. 
Traditional Approaches
Anti-aging therapy has become a common practice nowadays. Treatment program is usually defined after the thorough examination and testing for antioxidant status, immune system function, digestive analysis, hormone status, circulation, and other aging markers. It includes therapies that emphasize nutrition, enzyme enhancement, hormone replacement and lifestyle changes. Other treatment options depend on definite conditions that are peculiar for every single patient.
Alternative Approaches
Taking herbs to prevent premature aging is quite popular both in herbal medicine and in traditional one. Although, with time human body becomes accustomed to the herbs and their effectiveness tends to decrease. Nevertheless, here are some popular anti-aging herb remedies.

Premature aging can also be control through different types of Yoga postures and meditations. Stress, worries, depression and anxiety are the main roots for premature aging. Good life style, good habits like early to bed and early to rise followed by Yoga , meditation and different type of breathing patterns - PRANAYAMA helps a lot. I have been doing all these therapy and it works very well. At the age of 59.9, still I look like 45 years YOUNG MAN. For keeping healthy, firm determination, descipline in lifeand healthy diet and good habits are very essential.
