The Yin-Yang theory of aging
Yin and Yang is an ancient Chinese philosophy that describes how obviously opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. This philosophy appears to govern how the universe works and it also applies to aging and life in general. Ying and Yan represent a pair of opposite but interconnected forces implicated in life: the genes/DNA (Yin, Dark) and the non-genetic factors (Yan, Light).
The genes that you inherit from your parents are the master code for your health and longevity, and they usually do not change over your lifetime. However, the activity or expression of the genes is constantly altered by many non-genetic, also known as environmental, factors inside and outside of your body. These non-genetic factors are modifiable and you are in control of them. There are many modifiable factors that affect how you age: what you eat and drink, how much and when you eat, how much you exercise, how much and how well you sleep, how much stress you experience, whether you are exposed to pollution, radiation, UV rays, toxins, infections and many other environmental risks. These factors have a huge impact on your health, but you are in control of them and your healthspan.
When the Yin and Yang forces are in perfect balance and harmony, the cells and body function well. This is the state that we all should try to stay at for as long as possible. As we age, the Yin and Yang forces become increasingly imbalanced and disharmonious, resulting in increasingly more suboptimal health issues (subhealth), which predispose us to more serious diseases and ultimately death when some systems are totally broken down. Fortunately, the health states are reversible early on until it is too late.

How to read the AgingSOS® report?
W-Index® is a summary score of your overall wellness.
The overall health is summarized by our wellness index (W-Index®). The calculation of W-Index® is based on our proprietary formula derived from our database on healthy and unhealthy subjects. The best W-Index® score is 100 points and deductions are made with abnormal findings based on the degree of abnormality. A person with a W-Index® of 55 points or less usually has several severe subhealth and likely major diseases.
It should be noted that the W-Index® is calculated based on the tested biomarkers and may be significantly modified by other health information such as the diagnosis of diseases or biomarkers that are not measured with the AgingSOS® Starter panel. It is important that you verify the health information that you provided to us during the activation of your test kit.
The determination of individual biomarker reference ranges as well as the W-Index® is based on our current knowledge about these biomarkers and is an evolving process as data continue to accumulate. When significant improvement occurs, your report will be updated on our website.
