An Early Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s Diagnosis is Just a Sniff Away

By |2021-09-16T10:09:35+00:00September 16th, 2021|Natural Health|

If your sense of smell let you down any time over the last 18 months it was probably because you were a victim of the coronavirus.

But COVID-19 isn’t the only reason you can lose your ability to smell. It can also signal the onset of Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease.

So, being able to test this successfully would not only help track the recovery of COVID-19 patients, but also help physicians spot neurodegenerative conditions at an early stage.

Scientists from the United Kingdom say they’ve developed just such a test. What’s more, it will soon be available for at-home use.

The link between losing […]

Surprising “Longevity” Link Between Diabetes and Insomnia

By |2021-09-09T10:00:33+00:00September 9th, 2021|Natural Health|

Sleep is critical to good health, but for many of us it’s hard to come by. In the modern world there are so many challenges to a healthy sleep—everything from stress to diabetes—that can cause insomnia. In fact, diabetes is the world’s fastest growing chronic health condition and people with diabetes not only lose their lives prematurely, but they often suffer with insomnia.

So, if you suffer from both diabetes and insomnia, what effect would this have on your life expectancy? In the first study of its kind, scientists decided to find out.

It’s not news that insufficient duration or poor quality […]

Can You Really Cheat Aging and Death?

By |2021-09-02T03:39:19+00:00September 2nd, 2021|Lifestyle|

Recently we wrote about new research suggesting that one day it may be possible for the average human to live to 120 or even 150 years of age—nearly doubling the average human lifespan in the developed world.

While these scientists say it’s only a matter of time before modern medicine has advancements to dramatically slow the aging process and allow our life spans to nearly double, other anti-aging scientists believe it’s all pie-in-the-sky.

Let’s take a look at the research that has the pessimists convinced that aging cannot be dramatically slowed and that the human life span has a limit.

A major new […]

Could This be the Most Important Food for Living Longer?

By |2021-08-26T04:00:18+00:00August 26th, 2021|Nutrition|

When researchers looked around the globe to discover which populations enjoy the longest life exptectancy, they focused on several different groups who consistently outlive the rest of us.

After they analyzed what these people were eating, they found differences among the various cultures and a variety of ways that they prepared their meals. However, there was one food all these long-lived folks had in common despite their differing lifestyles and locations throughout the world.

Now, many researchers consider this food to be “the most important dietary predictor of survival of older people of different ethnicities.”1

The food I’m talking about is legumes.

Legumes are […]

How to Grow Three Years Younger in a Matter of Weeks

By |2021-08-18T14:36:45+00:00August 19th, 2021|Natural Health|

A groundbreaking new clinical trial shows how you can lower your biological age by more than three years in a mere eight weeks.

But this breakthrough didn’t come about through some new pharmaceutical discovery or medical procedure. Instead, the secret involved nothing more than a handful of dietary and lifestyle changes which we can all carry out by ourselves in the comfort of our own homes.

This age reversing breakthrough begins with a biological process known as methylation. Methylation is a process whereby one carbon atom and three hydrogen atoms (methyl group) are either added to or removed from a molecule, acting […]

Anti-Aging Treatments Just Got a Little Sweeter

By |2021-08-12T10:06:03+00:00August 12th, 2021|Natural Health|

The weekend is almost here and in kitchens across the country families will be serving up pancakes and maple syrup. While maple syrup usually is put in the category of natural sugars we should consume on a limited basis, researchers have revealed a new discovery that might re-categorize maple syrup as anti-aging medicine.

Researchers have found some remarkable natural compounds in maple syrup that appear to solve the root causes of the aging process. Here’s the sweet story…

When our bodies age, they undergo a number of changes that slow down our resilience to the wear and tear of daily living. For […]

Can You Really Be Fat But Fit?

By |2021-08-05T01:17:22+00:00August 5th, 2021|Natural Health|

Obese people often have unhealthy blood fats, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other health problems, yet a certain percentage of them don’t.

This group is categorized by doctors as “metabolically healthy obese”, or “fat but fit”. However, is this really possible when it comes to longevity? Will they have the same life expectancy as their fit but slim counterparts?

A team of researchers tackled this question and here’s what they found…

Typically, obesity leads to metabolic problems reflected in elevated blood sugar and insulin resistance, diabetes, increased blood pressure, unhealthy levels of blood fats, and systemic inflammation.

These effects are not universal, however, with […]

How Being a Workaholic Impacts Your Longevity

By |2021-07-29T13:26:49+00:00July 29th, 2021|Lifestyle|

Work. Work. Work. Are you a workaholic who typically logs way over 40 hours a week?

In our modern society this practice isn’t always frowned upon. In fact, a non-stop work life is like a badge of honor to many. For others, working less doesn’t feel like an option from a financial standpoint.

The high value placed on work and the money it provides begs the question: Can you work yourself to death?

A recent World Health Organization (WHO) report answers the question with a resounding yes. The report points to research that suggests working long hours is an occupational health risk that […]

The New “Bad Cholesterol” Shortens Your Life

By |2021-07-22T10:00:04+00:00July 22nd, 2021|Natural Health|

At one time the only measure of blood fats a doctor would look at was total cholesterol. This expanded to include different forms of cholesterol including another type of fat called triglycerides.

Now, it looks like yet another blood fat marker will be added to the list and may possibly replace some of the others. Not only is this marker believed to be a far more accurate predictor of heart disease, but a new study shows elevated levels will lead to an early grave.

This marker is called apolipoprotein B.

Since cholesterol is […]

Surprise: Playing These Sports Will Lengthen Your Life

By |2021-07-15T11:45:56+00:00July 15th, 2021|Natural Health|

We know exercise, which includes taking part in sporting activities, is important for health. But existing research focuses on the current health of active participants, not on how long they live, a type of study that requires a much longer historical record to draw scientifically valid conclusions.

So, it shouldn’t surprise you to learn that no such analysis has ever been conducted – that is until now. British scientists undertook a review of 160 years of medical research in male athletes and made some surprising discoveries.

For those who like to play two sports in particular, the findings provide some welcome encouragement.
