Put Your Hands Together and Live Almost Four Years Longer

By |2018-07-20T02:09:37+00:00July 19th, 2018|Lifestyle|

The late Dr. Cyril Clarke was a renowned British physician, geneticist and professor of medicine. After 1984, with the explosive increase in the number of people living beyond 100, he began to take a great interest in human longevity.

He wondered whether extended lifespans were related to the decline of religious faith and belief in the afterlife. Perhaps, he considered, loss of faith motivated people to live longer in this life.

On the other hand, many centenarians are deeply religious. So what do we find when we look at the facts? Keep reading. . .

Previously Overlooked Part of the Cell May be Key to Aging

By |2018-07-12T07:19:59+00:00July 12th, 2018|Natural Health|

Researchers who examine the aging process believe they may have found the cellular structure that holds the key to aging

And their investigations indicate that size matters.

Because they’ve found evidence that when this microscopic part of the cell is relatively compact and small, your odds of living to a ripe old age take a leap. But if it gets bigger, that can signal a greater risk of dying young.

Important news for all of us.

The Cell’s Mini Protein Factory

The structure that has aging experts excited is called the nucleolus. It‘s so small, it’s contained within each cell’s nucleus, and it’s kind of […]

Declining quality and activity of mitochondria – often called the cells’ “batteries” – is associated with many age-related diseases and a wide range of processes that make us age faster.

Rejuvenating mitochondria can potentially add years to a person’s life.

To do just that, some researchers have developed a new mitochondrial antioxidant supplement, and a science journal has just published the results of the first human clinical trial to test its effectiveness. This is what they found. . .

Concentrates in the Mitochondria

A research team from the University of Colorado, Boulder first tested the supplement called MitoQ on mice in 2014.

Old mice, the […]

Move Over Apples… Singing May Be A Better Way To Keep The Doctor Away

I had the chance to catch up with my friend Nicole a couple of months ago. She had recently come back from a few days of downhill skiing in Vermont with her 14-year-old son and her 91-year-old father.

Yes, you read that right. Her 91-year-old father went with her… and he still skis.

I was surprised myself when she told me. So of course I asked her his secret. . .

Nicole told me a little about her father and how he likes to keep active.  She said one of his favorite activities is singing.  He sings weekly in his church choir, a […]

If You Want to Stay Young, be a Kidult

By |2018-06-07T11:17:28+00:00June 7th, 2018|Lifestyle|

If you’re looking for a secret recipe to feel younger and enjoy a longer, happier life, here’s an answer that’s straightforward, painless and cheap.

All you have to do is think young, act young and indulge in nostalgia.

Maybe this sounds too good to be true, but it’s the finding of a recent survey, and it’s backed up by a research psychologist.

Make Silly Faces

For the survey, 2000 British adults were asked about the health effects of youthful behavior and the habit of indulging in nostalgia.

Three out of four believed it was important, now and again, to forget they were adults.

The respondents created […]

Don’t Want to Fast? This Supplement Can be a Substitute!

By |2018-05-31T16:35:24+00:00May 31st, 2018|Nutrition|

Fasting has long been known to extend lifespan.

From worms to mice to rhesus monkeys, the lives of many creatures can be rendered longer by restricting their food intake.

This may be an effective anti-aging technique, but cutting down calories by a third or more is too big a price to pay for all but those who are really determined to live a long time.

For those of us who don’t like to go hungry, new, exciting findings have recently been released which demonstrate that a dietary supplement can mimic at least one of the major benefits of a calorie-restricted diet.

Yes, folks, it’s […]

Happiness is Still the Best Drug

By |2018-05-24T15:05:28+00:00May 24th, 2018|Natural Health|

Health authorities are not exactly clear how to define it. But the essence is that people who feel good about life live longer.

Whatever definition they eventually agree on, there’s no doubt that personal well-being is vitally important to health and longevity.

It encompasses feelings of self-worth; how satisfied we are with life; a belief that what we do has value; having activities to look forward to; and day-to-day emotional experiences.

Here’s a simple way to increase your own life satisfaction. . .

One of many ways to increase well-being is to listen regularly to the music we enjoy.

But new findings suggest relaxing to […]

Fruits and Vegetables Aren’t What They Used to Be

By |2018-05-17T03:54:32+00:00May 17th, 2018|Nutrition|

If you’re old enough, you may realize that today’s fruits and vegetables just don’t taste like the ones you remember as a child.

It’s not your imagination, or nostalgia.

The drive to increase food production over the last fifty to a hundred years has been successful, but it’s come at a price.

Modern farming techniques have caused water and carbohydrate content to rise, while protein, vitamins and minerals have taken a dive. There’s even a term for it: “the dilution effect.” The result is much more serious than a mere lack of flavor. . .

While we’re urged to eat five fruits and vegetables […]
