    This is a wonderful question.  Having been involved in this field for quite a while, both personally and professionally, in my opinion, the way to manage ageing is with a comprehensive wellness assessment which focuses on optimizing health by means of investigations that target your gastrointestinal, nutritional, cardiovascular and hormonal function.  This programme is outlined at

    There is no magic formula but eating less, exercising regularly, maintaining your optimal weight, remaining engaged, especially in the work place and being of service with optimism and compassion would help with a meaningful transition through life's challenges.  A remarkable book called ‘30 Lessons for Living’ penned by gerontologist, Karl Pillemer, expands on this in ways which can only be described as totally inspirational and very moving.

    There are so many factors that contribute to ageing, so I agree with Dr. Elstein that a comprehensive approach is necessary. Simply put, being as healthy as possible is the best formula.  This involves eating lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, drinking at least 2L of water per day and staying active. Positive interactions are also a key factor; so maintaining good relationships with family and friends is beneficial. Also, increasing the amount of raw food you eat is a fantastic way to prevent free radical cell damage, so look into foods that are high in anti-oxidants such as berries, grapes, green tea, and cocoa to name a few.
