Tips from Dr. Anthony Vendryes’ - Presentation on The 4 Pillars of Healthy Ageing At CCRP Wellness Seminar April 20, 2010




  • Your health is #1. Health is not just an absence of disease, it is a state of physical, mental and spiritual well-being.
  • Real health is wellness, the three major killers are heart disease, cancer and stroke – these are all lifestyle related disorders.
  • The four Pillars of Healthy Ageing are, Nutrition, Cleansing, Exercise and Stress & Rest Management.
  • 1st Pillar – Good Nutrition is the basis of good health, you are what you eat. Good nutrition slows ageing, all major killers are nutritionally related disorders.


Cellular nutrition

  • The body is intelligent
  • The body is composed of cells
  • Cells are the units of life
  • Give the cells all the units they need…and the body can heal and repair itself.

The Death and Rebirth of Cells

  • Liver cells live 90 days
  • The stomach lining is replaced every 2 days
  • Red blood cells have a life span of 120 days
  • Every year 90% of your body’s cells are replaced


  • 2nd Pillar – Exercising, “use it or lose it!” it compliments nutrition, has lots of physical and emotional benefits and also slows down the ageing process.
  • What type of exercise?
    • Aerobic exercise?
    • Resistance exercise?
    • Do both
    • Start slowly
    • Be consistent
    • Enjoy what you do
  • 3rd Pillar – Cleansing, try to avoid substances that poison the body such as cigarette smoke, alcohol, drugs (legal or otherwise), chemicals and pollutants.
  • 4th Pillar – De-stress - Stress is not a person or a situation, it is a reaction or a response, it is known as the enemy within. It also accelerates ageing.
  • In order to manage stress you need to know how you react to stress factors and learn the relaxation response.
  • Your next steps to wellness
    • Educate
    • Motivate
    • Activate
    • Facilitate
