Most of us want to live a longer healthier life, and Chiva-Som’s Longevity Programme is designed to help us do just that. It promotes not only an extended lifespan, but also a longer health span – shortening years of ill health and retaining vitality into old age.
The programme aims at key behavioural patterns - eating well, staying active and developing the right emotional and mental state. These together form the basis of longevity.
The programme provides annual assessments, including a quantifiable fitness score; a diet study that incorporates tests for vital elements like vitamins, minerals and amino acids; and a life satisfaction monitor that helps you identify the right mental approach for better health. In addition, there is one-o genetic testing and checkups based on existing ailments. These assessments lead to your personal nutrition guidelines; a fitness programme with clearly defined yearly targets; and consultations with a counsellor to follow up on your life satisfaction results.
Lifestyle changes take several weeks to become habit, so once you complete your stay at the resort, we will deliver positive email messages weekly to motivate you in your new approach to life. And there are feedback systems to record activity.
The Longevity Programme provides a systematic vehicle for disease prevention based on three concepts: Health Promotion, in practices such as exercise and eating well; Early Detection, through annual checkups; and Damage Minimisation, by treating illness to prevent complications.
It’s rare to see all these elements in a single programme, so this is a very streamlined approach to longer life and longer health. People with existing conditions can also benefit, because the same behaviours influence the reversal or slowing of disease.
