Dr. Matt Chalmers [00:00:03] Hey, this is Dr. Matt Chalmers, and you're listening to the Dr. Chalmers podcast. We'll be covering how the body actually works so we can fix the things no one else can. So I do a fair amount of anti-aging work, and the thing I think is funny about anti-aging is that the way you do anti-aging is you just make the body as healthy as you possibly can, and the aging process slows down.

Dr. Matt Chalmers [00:00:29] Keeping your hormones where they're supposed to be testosterone growth hormone, thyroid hormone, cortisol hormone, insulin, making sure those all stay where they're supposed to be going to do more for you than any cream or any surgery or anything else.

Dr. Matt Chalmers [00:00:44] Now, here's the problem we can't turn the clock back very well, but we can slow it down well. So if you're 30 or 25 and you're like, Oh, I don't need to worry about that yet. Yeah, you do. If you start getting healthy now, you will look and feel more beneficial when you're 35 and 45, 55 and 65; remember, we're slowing the clock down.

Dr. Matt Chalmers [00:01:02] So if you want to look good when you're 50, start as soon as you can start when you're 20 or 25, start when you're 30, get your exercise, and make sure you figure out what diet macros that it's best for You. Make sure you're taking all your supplementation, make sure you're sleeping correctly, and make sure you're hydrating properly.

Dr. Matt Chalmers [00:01:16] If you want to look good now and look good later, that's what you have to do. You have to maintain your health, and you have to keep it consistently maintained. This is what we talk about with wellness is quality of life over the longest period as soon as you dig into that now, the easier is going to be for you to look and feel your best when you're older.

Dr. Matt Chalmers [00:01:35] So that's kind of the thing maintain all your hormone levels, maintain your vitamin and mineral levels. You have all the chemicals your body has to have to function; make sure it has those chemicals so they can function now and in the future. The more you let it degradation destroy now, the more problems you're going to have in the future.

Dr. Matt Chalmers [00:01:51] If you're eating too much sugar, consuming too much alcohol, things like that, now you're going to have problems with that in the future because it's going to damage things that you have to then go back and heal and the amount of time that there is everything that's going to jack up the way you feel and like in the future, the longer you let it be, the damage is the more you're going to have problems in the future and so just cut some of that stuff out now.

Dr. Matt Chalmers [00:02:10] I wish that I had known about cannabis when I was in college, out of the drink, a lot less alcohol. It's a much, much, much better option for every piece of health. So, you know, if you're like and I like drinking, like doing this and that, I know it's damaged my body mass and everything up try switching to cannabis, try to try some of the Delta eight strips, the game strips, try, you know, try doing some of the sublingual stuff, gummies, even, you know, make sure that you take them properly don't take them to dry that's a real quick way to tend to make yourself less healthy, but that's the type of thing swap your stuff.

Dr. Matt Chalmers [00:02:42] If you're like, Well, I drink a lot all right, try swapping here for cannabis; it's a much healthier trade. You know, if you're eating a lot of sugar. Okay, great. You like ice cream at night. Quit using the sugary stuff and eat some of the keto stuff; there's a bunch of great, you know, ice cream, you know, cookies; they just don't have the sugar; sugar's hyper toxic to the body.

Dr. Matt Chalmers [00:03:01] So if you want to look good, feel good. Change the chemistry in your body, change the hormones, change your activity level, and sweat out the trash. That's how you're going to look good and feel good much later on. So don't try to wait till you're 60 and then go, Oh, no, what do I do? Start now and start getting healthy now so you can stay healthy and so your physical appearance will always be what you want it to be.
