How Laughter Can Lengthen Your Life

By |2022-04-21T04:24:09+00:00April 21st, 2022|Natural Health|

In the Bible, Proverbs 17:22 says, “A merry heart is good medicine.” And there’s plenty of anecdotal evidence and scientific research to support this Biblical view.

Until recently, researchers hadn’t confirmed scientifically how laughter affects the health of seniors and whether everyday laughter could really help seniors remain healthy and independent. This has now been shown to be true. But it’s not just laughter alone that’s important, it’s who you laugh with.

Laughter has many health benefits. It boosts immunity, reduces symptoms of depression, raises mood, lowers blood pressure, improves blood sugar control in diabetics, and prevents cognitive decline.

These wonderful benefits led […]

As most people seem to know, just about any type of exercise can improve your life expectancy and overall health.

But now, researchers in Kansas say they know exactly which exercises consistently offer the greatest improvements in longevity.

To analyze how exercise can extend life, these researchers examined health data on thousands of people, investigating which types of physical activity they performed and then compiling longevity results based on how long folks lived.

Researchers Followed 25 Years of Physical Activity 

The Kansas researchers who delved into the particulars of exercise and life expectancy used data collected in the Copenhagen City Heart Study, a […]

This Daily Grind Keeps Your Heart Healthy and Lengthens Your Life

By |2022-04-07T12:23:25+00:00April 7th, 2022|Natural Health|

Stress abounds in today’s world. Some people liken our busy modern lifestyle to a rat race or a daily grind. But instead of burdening you with stress, partaking in one daily grind can relieve it. I’m talking about drinking coffee.

If you love coffee then keep reading, because I’ve got good news about your beloved daily drink that many medical “experts” have implored you to steer well clear of.

They claim studies performed over the last century link coffee drinking to a wide range of diseases. However, those coffee drinkers were often smokers, and researchers rarely took this factor into consideration when […]

Wave Goodbye to Steaks and Sausages and Add Ten Years to Your Life

By |2022-03-31T14:47:49+00:00March 31st, 2022|Natural Health|

Replacing a “typical Western diet” with a healthy “optimized diet” can add years to your life at any age, even in your sunset years, a major new study reveals.

This will be challenging for many, however. It means giving up red and processed meat, and embracing lentils, beans, and peas instead.

For those reluctant to abandon their juicy steaks and hot dogs, the authors suggest a compromise, eating what’s called a “feasibility diet.” The good news: even this more modest change can significantly increase life expectancy.

There are thousands of studies that show how food choices affect our health, but researchers at the […]

Can Living Near a Fracking Site Destroy Your Health and Longevity?

By |2022-03-24T12:54:32+00:00March 24th, 2022|Natural Health|

Unconventional oil and gas development (UOGD), better known as hydraulic fracturing or fracking, has expanded dramatically around the world over the last 20 years.

In parallel, so have concerns over its health impact on people living nearby. These come from air, water, and soil pollution, ionizing radiation and more.

Now, for the first time, environmental scientists from Harvard show those living near or downwind of a fracking site are at higher risk of an early demise.

Conventional gas wells are drilled vertically but fracking is different. After drilling down to between 7,000 and 10,000 feet, the rig turns horizontal to drill for another […]

By |2022-03-17T07:18:13+00:00March 17th, 2022|Nutrition|

Want to push back against the deadly effects of aging? All you need is a fork.

According to a study on longevity, changing the foods you consume everyday can make a big difference in how long you can expect to live – a ten-year difference for some people.

When I saw this study, I wondered how many people would be willing to make the simple changes in diet that this research shows can make a big difference in life expectancy. Especially when you consider that making these alterations doesn’t mean depriving yourself of tasty food. It only requires being more conscious about […]

Gain More “Healthy Fat” if You Want to Age Better

By |2022-03-10T12:00:11+00:00March 10th, 2022|Natural Health|

Usually, when we think about using exercise to fight aging, we focus on how exercise strengthens our muscle tissue and helps reduce body fat.

But, along with helping to trim your waistline, researchers have now found that exercise not only helps eliminate fat but changes it in a way that helps slow the aging process.

So, let’s take a closer look at how you can use those fat upgrades to upgrade how you feel every day no matter how old you are.

Fat has a bad reputation. Over the last couple of decades researchers have realized that fat tissue plays an important role […]

How Much Exercise Does Your Heart Need as You Age?

By |2022-03-03T10:19:53+00:00March 3rd, 2022|Natural Health|

Exercise is the secret for avoiding heart disease as you age. But how much exercise do you need in your later years? In a first-of-its-kind study, researchers in Italy claim to have found the answer.

Researchers looked at data from a study involving 3,099 Italians, aged 65 and older.

Between the years 1995 and 1997, medical teams examined the participants by taking medical histories, performing physical exams, health scans, and blood tests. Then, four and seven years later, they performed additional medical assessments. Medical teams continued tracking the participants’ overall health until 2018.

At each juncture, participants self-reported their physical activity. Moderate activities […]

Does Semen Hold the Key to Slow Aging?

By |2022-02-24T15:33:53+00:00February 24th, 2022|Natural Health|

An organic compound found in semen is being praised as an amazing age-fighter that provides the benefits of calorie restriction without going hungry. In fact, an acclaimed Harvard geneticist and anti-aging expert claims that “next year everyone is going to be talking about (it).”

Here’s the remarkable story…

The nutrient that I’m talking about is called spermidine.

Spermidine was first isolated from semen – hence its name – and is a type of compound called a polyamine. Polyamines are present in all living cells and are involved in many cellular processes including cell growth and proliferation, membrane stability and DNA\RNA stabilization.

They protect our […]

Some of the world’s richest people have commandeered space travel by building and launching private rocket ships. Now, they’re setting their sights on anti-aging medicine.

Is it a billionaire vanity project, or a genuine opportunity that will result in longer and healthier lives for all of us?

With $3 billion in start-up funding alone, and top anti-aging scientists on board, physicist and entrepreneur Yuri Milner, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, and other wealthy tycoons launched Altos Labs in January. The biotech company aims “to restore cell health and resilience to reverse disease, injury, and disabilities that occur throughout life.”
