bigstock-catherine-and-ashley-1463712Medical research continues to identify foods and activities in our daily lives that damage DNA and accelerate the aging process. This March, 2013, report from Johns Hopkins Medicine begins, “In a laboratory study pairing food chemistry and cancer biology, scientists at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center tested the potentially harmful effect of foods and flavorings on the DNA of cells. They found that liquid smoke flavoring, black and green teas and coffee activated the highest levels of a well-known, cancer-linked gene called p53.”

While the researchers cautioned against using these results to cut out tea and coffee from one’s diet, they said the findings do show that we still understand little of how food affects our bodies at the cellular level. Nonetheless, changing the way we process certain foods can reduce harmful effects.

Dr. Linda Quinn, a certified specialist in anti-aging therapies, is well acquainted with these and other studies. Research showing that carcinogens are found in plastic packaging, ground water, textiles, cosmetics and water treatment products has led her to develop the most complete and effective anti-aging regimen available today. Often, that begins with a customized detox program to gently rid the body of the toxins that are impeding well living. This is often supplemented by hormone therapy and the use of adipose-derived adult stem cells (stem cells taken from the patient’s own fatty tissue) to effect repair of damaged cells.

In addition, Dr. Quinn offers injectables that can take another ten years off a patient’s appearance without resorting to surgery. Botox, Juvaderm, Restylane, and other fillers can correct wrinkles, erase fine lines, and smooth the skin without surgical risks or recovery time.

Let Dr. Quinn show you how you can enjoy the benefits of a younger, refreshed appearance, greater energy, and better sleep. Contact her office for an appointment today.
