Tonight You Can Drink from the Fountain of Youth

By |2019-02-07T06:28:10+00:00February 7th, 2019|Natural Health|

Poor Ponce de Leon, the Spanish explorer, never found the fountain of youth, but his quest turned out to be a durable legend. Who wouldn’t want an easy way to stay young?

Well, researchers at the University of California Berkeley say their research demonstrates a clear way to make that happen. And it’s easy to do.

Their answer: Get a good night’s sleep every night. Without sleeping pills. They call it “the very center” of an effective anti-aging program.

Sleep is so important that a popular health writer, Bill Sardi, recently named “not getting enough sleep” as one of the 10 biggest health […]

Why Do Presidents Tend to Live a Long Time?

By |2019-02-01T03:45:47+00:00January 31st, 2019|Lifestyle|

I bet you’ve seen those photos documenting the changes that occur in presidents during their stressful tenures. After a year or two, they are already showing signs of wear and tear; wrinkles line their faces and streaks of gray start to proliferate in their hair.

This observation led Dr. Michael Roizen, of fame, to deduce that presidents age twice as fast as the rest of us when they’re in office. He attributed it to “unrequited stress.”

But here’s the thing: physical appearance shouldn’t be confused with accelerated aging.

Never mind the gray hairs — according to a paper1 published in the Journal […]

This Part of Your Body May be the Very Heart of the Aging Process

By |2019-01-24T13:36:43+00:00January 24th, 2019|Natural Health|

Inside your brain, there’s a very small section of tissue that some researchers believe is the very heart of the aging process.

They also think this tiny but crucially important area holds clues that may lead to therapies for Alzheimer’s disease and other brain function breakdowns that plague us as we get older.

Keep reading for the full story. . .

The region is called the hypothalamus. It’s been well-established that it regulates growth, development, reproduction, metabolism and appetite while affecting our daily rhythms and how we sleep. Now there’s even more: Research demonstrates that if we want to conquer aging, this just […]

Can a Transfusion of “Young” Blood Keep You Young?

By |2019-01-17T15:23:24+00:00January 17th, 2019|Natural Health|

New York state lost more residents in 2018 than any other state in the US, so they are certainly in need of some fresh blood. And there’s one man who intends to supply it – literally.

34-year-old Jesse Karmazin is hoping to open a clinic in New York City this year offering to reverse the aging process by infusing people with the blood of young donors – ranging in age from the teens to 25.

He said a single infusion “dramatically improves people’s appearance, their memory and their strength [and] reverses aging.” He even had the temerity to say “it comes pretty […]

The Special Health Benefits of Racket Sports

By |2019-01-10T14:42:03+00:00January 10th, 2019|Natural Health|

Daily exercise is essential if you want to stay healthy and live a long life. You probably knew that. But you may not know that racket sports in particular can help you live longer.

Keep reading for the full scoop. . .

A study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine1 looked at the link between six different types of exercise and the risk of early death. They found that adults who participated in racket sports lived longer than those who participated in solitary exercises such as jogging, swimming or cycling.

Researchers followed a vast group — 80,306 people, ranging in age […]

Big Changes are Already in the Works for the 100-Year-Life Society

By |2019-01-03T13:50:06+00:00January 3rd, 2019|Lifestyle|

The number of centenarians in the US has already soared by 58% in the last seven years alone. The Census Bureau projects numbers will increase seven-fold over the next four decades, to 600,000 people past the age of 100.

That’s both good news and bad news. . .

Surging health care and pension costs. A shortage of caregivers. “Dementia towns.” Huge numbers of people with nothing to do.

It’s easy to paint a grim picture of America’s aging population. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Instead, society could embrace the 100-year life. For one country, it’s a national project.

How an Intestinal Problem Can Make You Age Faster

By |2018-12-27T17:09:10+00:00December 27th, 2018|Natural Health|

When things get old they leak. That includes old pipes, dams, faucets and hoses.

And it also includes the walls of your digestive tract. Those leaks – known as leaky gut syndrome – are more than a mere annoyance. They make you age faster.

Researchers believe that much of the health-damaging inflammation that accompanies aging – sometimes called inflammaging – is linked to our increasingly leaky guts that allow harmful substances to pass through the intestinal wall and into the bloodstream.

Here’s what you can do about this. . .

Breaching the Barrier

When everything is functioning as it should, the thin mucosal layer that […]

Slow Down Lung Aging, Breathe Easier with These Foods

By |2018-12-20T12:59:06+00:00December 20th, 2018|Nutrition|

Every minute of every day, two basic activities keep you alive from one moment to the next: your heartbeat and your breathing.

We’ve all read or seen a ton of information about how to keep your heart healthy and functioning properly, but what does anyone ever tell you about maintaining healthy lungs? (Except for “Don’t smoke.”)

That’s a sorry oversight, because researchers warn that if you’re over 30, your lungs have already begun to show their age, in a way that tests can detect. So if you want a decent chance of living to a ripe old age, keeping your lungs “younger” […]

What Will Life be Like When Millions Live Past 100?

By |2018-12-13T12:20:32+00:00December 13th, 2018|Lifestyle|

Education. Work. Retirement. That’s your life plan. It’s a simple, three-stage model we have all learned to expect. But this model is rapidly becoming out of date.

For the last two centuries life expectancy has increased by more than two years every decade. In 2014, as many as 72,197 Americans were aged 100 or over. That’s an increase of 44% since 2000.

This means individuals — as well as companies and governments — will have to start planning for much longer lives.

In their book The 100-Year Life, authors Lynda Gratton and Andrew Scott are optimistic these extra years are a precious gift. […]

Pack on This Type of Fat and Live Longer

By |2018-12-06T13:17:18+00:00December 6th, 2018|Natural Health|

Most of us want to live a long life, but only if our later years are spent in good health. The buzzword these days isn’t “lifespan,” it’s “healthspan” – how long can you enjoy life to the fullest?

That’s why, for the past 20 years, scientists and researchers have been working hard to find ways for people to enjoy a longer healthspan. And according to some researchers, a certain fat naturally found in our bodies could be the answer.

Yes, this is a fat you WANT.

As I hinted, the fat I’m talking about is not just any fat.  The secret lies in […]
