An Okotoks resident is looking to promote change to the way women view and cope with the aging process after 40.

Julie Hodge, Founder and Creator of the Proaging Programs, says this program answers the many questions women have regarding aging and how to stop the clock.

"It is designed to answer all of the most pressing questions women have about the aging process. It's very heavily based upon evidence and research. I think women are going to find the content even more valuable than they thought, once they actually start going through it," she said.

Hodge says her research and expert input based program aims to help women embrace the aging process.

"All the tools in there are really geared towards helping make the rest of our lives the best of our life, and using real women as the face of that model," she said.

The program, which becomes officially available this weekend, offers information on many topics, such as, exercise, nutrition, emotions and hormones.

The "proaging," program is available online, and provides an opportunity to embrace the journey through the aging process with improved health and vitality.
