Optimal Health means being as healthy as you can be
My mission is helping you achieveyour optimal health. The Gosrani Optimal Health program improves your health, strengthens your immune response and significantly enhances your quality of life today, thereby helping you to avoid the effects of premature aging tomorrow. Optimal Health is a preventive, scientific approach to maximizing quality of life and mitigating or reversing the degenerative effects of aging. The program is based on comprehensive evaluation, solid science and well-established therapeutic methods.
Optimal Health is a way of life
Health isn’t just an achievable goal, it’s a way of life regardless of your age. For most of us, myself included, Optimal Health means major lifestyle changes. You begin by changing a sedentary life into an active one and learning to eat differently and you end up with a brand new set of everyday habits, a new way way of thinking about your body and how you use it, fuel it and treat it. With this new lifestyle come incalculable benefits to your health, to your quality of life, your loved ones, your career — even your sex life!
Optimal Health benefits include:
- Reduction of body fat
- Increased strength, stamina and vitality
- Improved relationships with family and significant others
- Increased libido
- More rewarding work experience
- Improved quality of life
- A reduced risk of degenerative disease
Optimal Health puts science into daily practice
The Gosrani Optimal Health program gives you all the tools, guidance and supervision needed to make radical changes not just to the way you live, but also to how you think about your daily activities. Optimal Health is not a new weight-loss diet or a new spin on an exercise regimen. It’s the science of how to become healthy now, how to create new, healthy habits and how to practice Optimal Health for the rest of your life.
Optimal Health for children and young adults
The science of age management is of enormous value to children and young adults: nobody is too young to learn how to eat well, exercise properly and maintain the health he or she was born with. A child with healthy eating and exercise habits will enjoy optimal health benefits now and for the rest of his or her life, with a big bonus in the form of a healthier aging process. Children of parents who practice Optimal Health receive the gift of a healthy future.
Most of us believe that aging is a natural process that happens only to senior citizens. Not so! Premature aging is not a natural process: it’s the onset of degenerative diseases associated with advancing age in people who are much younger, in their 40s or even their 30s. As the sedentary, fast-food lifestyle becomes entrenched in habits passed down from one generation to the next, we’re seeing this disease process in younger and younger people.
Optimal health is preventive and proactive medicine
How optimal health prevents disease
Inflammation and the host of degenerative diseases linked to it — diabetes, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, arthritis, certain cancers, kidney disease — are preventable and reversible. The Optimal Health program will help you reduce abdominal fat and your risk of developing a serious chronic disease that would seriously damage your quality of life and threaten your survival.
Because aging is a natural process and not a disease, many of its degenerative effects can be controlled and sometimes even reversed. The Optimal Health program helps patients achieve the maximum possible health and quality of life by preventing the premature onset of age-related, degenerative disease.
Degenerative diseases invariably involve inflammation. Inflammation is the body’s protective attempt to remove stimuli and initiate the healing process when the harmful stimuli would eventually destroy enough tissue to threaten the organism’s survival. Inflammation is often caused by excess body fat, especially in the abdominal area (beer belly or belly fat) because the body can respond to this fat as if it were a destructive agent. Chronic inflammation — when the body makes a continuous attempt to remove what it believes to be harmful agents — is linked to a host of degenerative diseases.
Gosrani Optimal Health’s scientific approach to age management has been proven to decrease the risk of degenerative age-related disease.
A degenerative disease is one in which affected tissues or organs experience diminishing function and/or structural deterioration over time. This degeneration can be caused by normal wear and tear due to age, genetic predisposition or by lack of exercise and poor eating habits. Common degenerative diseases are:
- Coronary artery disease, the #1 killer
- Kidney failure
- PAD, which sometimes results in leg amputation
- Hypertension (high blood pressure)
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Several cancers (breast, colon and carcinoma of the gallbladder)
- Alzheimer’s dementia.
