Seniors Enjoy a Better Quality of Life Than Three Decades Ago

By |2020-11-26T21:37:10+00:00November 26th, 2020|Lifestyle|

Are older people better off mentally and physically today than the previous generation?

Yes, at least in Finland, say researchers who just published a study on aging in the journal Ageing Clinical and Experimental Research.1

Let’s take a look at what we can learn…

Scientists at the Faculty of Sport and Health Sciences at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland accessed the country’s health data gathered 28 years ago on the physical and mental abilities of elderly people. The subjects included 500 participants aged between 75 and 80 years old.

Next, the researchers conducted the same physical and cognitive tests on a group of 75- […]

These Healthy Choices Lengthen Life, Even For Those With Chronic Conditions

By |2020-11-19T13:14:45+00:00November 19th, 2020|Lifestyle|

It often takes an acute health crisis to get people to the point where they are willing to change direction and adopt a healthier lifestyle.

But what if someone has two or more chronic conditions such as asthma, angina, epilepsy or multiple sclerosis that will likely remain regardless of any lifestyle changes they make?

Will a person in this situation see a benefit in terms of life expectancy by making healthier choices?

Scientists from the United Kingdom thought this question needed to be answered.

We’ve been told that not smoking, avoiding junk food, losing excess weight, exercising regularly, and other healthy choices will keep […]

Discover the Natural, Relaxing Way to Boost Your Fountain-of-Youth Hormone by 142 Percent

[Editor’s Note: Part one of this article covered how infrared saunas have been clinically shown to cut the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and even burn 600 calories. To review part one, please click here.]

Most of us don’t sweat enough regularly. We live in air conditioned homes, cars, and offices. We use antiperspirants, and most of us don’t exercise enough.

The problem with this lifestyle is that your body was designed to sweat. And sweat is a key way to cleanse your body. A far-infrared sauna is one of the best ways to help.

One thing I can tell you from personal […]

Bodybuilding Supplement Extends Healthy Aging & Lifespan

By |2020-11-05T12:30:32+00:00November 5th, 2020|Natural Health|

Who would have thought that bodybuilders might have a secret anti-aging weapon tucked away in their gym bags?

Researchers have discovered that a favorite supplement of the muscle-bound also promotes healthy aging and extends life span … at least in mice.

Now, normally, I don’t dig into such early stage research, but this study piqued my interest, and you’re about to see why. If it turns out to work even half as well in humans as it does in mice, it will revolutionize anti-aging medicine.

At Buck Institute for Research on Aging, in Novato, California, scientists are encouraged by laboratory research into the […]

To Measure Your Life Expectancy, Measure this Part of Your Body

By |2020-10-29T18:40:19+00:00October 29th, 2020|Natural Health|

In measuring your health and longevity, many healthcare practitioners take into consideration your BMI – Body Mass Index – a measurement that reflects the ratio of your weight compared to your height.

But now, researchers believe there’s another body measurement that’s far more significant than BMI. I’m talking about your waistline.

BMI is a rather simple measure that has been widely used to link weight to health. As your BMI goes up, your health risks rise.

But the fact is, BMI’s reliability in determining health is shaky in many cases because it doesn’t reveal whether somebody’s extra weight is muscle or fat. And […]

Avoid These Foods if You Want to Live Longer

By |2020-10-22T10:33:57+00:00October 22nd, 2020|Natural Health|

If you’re eating the standard American diet, I’ve got important news. Instead of nutrient-dense whole foods, most of the calories you’re consuming are in the form of “ultra-processed” food.

Unfortunately, the Harvard School of Public Health points out that the ingredients used in these foods are tailor-made to trigger blood sugar issues, weight gain, and high blood pressure.1

And if that’s not enough, researchers have found that these foods can damage the all-important genetic material that directly impacts the way you age and how long you live.

One study from the U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey found that ultra-processed foods make […]

Master Circuit Discovered that Controls Aging – Tweaking it Doubled Lifespan

By |2020-10-14T07:44:16+00:00October 15th, 2020|Natural Health|

Scientists have published a groundbreaking study which could unlock the secret to living for a century and beyond — all while avoiding illness and remaining healthy the entire time.

If you’re doubting the validity of such claims, I don’t blame you. It sounds too good to be true, but the research is the real deal.

Scientists discovered a “master circuit” that controls how yeast cells age. When they made some modifications in the circuit, the cells doubled their lifespan and remained healthy throughout.

If the same process takes place in human cells, it could mean a much longer and healthier life for all […]

The Effortless and Enjoyable Way to Slash Your Alzheimer’s Risk by 65 Percent, Cut Fatal Heart Attack Risk by 63 Percent, and Burn 600 Calories – Just by Sitting Still!

By |2020-10-08T11:03:17+00:00October 8th, 2020|Natural Health|

Imagine if you could rejuvenate your body and live longer, just by sitting still.

Simply relax, take a nap, listen to music, meditate, or watch a DVD. While you take it easy your body is revitalized head-to-toe.

Is this some futuristic medical device? In some ways, yes, but it’s based on techniques used for thousands of years.

As research now shows, these are the benefits of the infrared sauna.

Other than eating right and getting enough exercise, it’s hard to think of any other thing that gives you so many health and longevity benefits as a sauna. Unlike diet and exercise, you don’t need […]

Laugh a Lot, Live Longer

Legendary comedian Bob Hope lived until 100, while comedienne Phyllis Diller enjoyed life until the ripe old age of 95.

Sitcom favorite Dick Van Dyke is still active at 94, as is movie comedy-maker Mel Brooks. And beloved actress Carol Burnett is following close behind, still cracking jokes at 87.

These are just a few of our comedy legends who lived well beyond the average life expectancy. It makes you wonder, what’s their secret?

Good genes, education and financial wealth may help these funny folks tip the longevity scales, but the latest research reveals another important factor that’s attainable by anyone: a sense […]

The Little-Known Longevity Vitamin That’s Key to Longer Life

By |2020-09-24T13:52:46+00:00September 24th, 2020|Nutrition|

When researchers at Tufts University took a look at the health and vitamin levels of about 4,000 Americans in their 50s, 60s and 70s over the course of 13 years, they made a surprising discovery…

They found one little-known vitamin was linked to a lower risk of death from all causes.

This vitamin, vitamin K, doesn’t get much attention in the health world, but the research is clear: if you run short of it, your life may be a few years shorter than it could be.

Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin found in certain vegetables, legumes and meat.

It’s critical to a healthy […]
