  • Essence, Hormesis and Autophagy in Aging and Longevity

Speaker: Jason Miller, DACM, LAc This session explores the ways in which lifestyle and botanical therapies can affect the ability of cells to prevent and repair genetic damage, and how this governs overall health and longevity. We take a deeper look at the TCM perspective on Essence and compare it with the modern genetic theory of aging. We also discuss the role of autophagy in aging, and how xenohormesis plays a key role in improving quality of life and longevity. Although we can’t prevent aging or death, with the use of specific botanical and nutritional agents, we can slow the aging process and help our patients age gracefully while adding healthy years to their lives.
