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

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 […]

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

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 […]

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.

Why Your Level of Resilience Determines How Long You’ll Live

By |2021-07-08T11:05:09+00:00July 8th, 2021|Natural Health|

Researchers are on constant search for therapies that can extend human life and help us remain healthy, active and indepedent as we age.

One important new study reveals that an extra 70 years of healthy life may be attainable and not just pie-in-the-sky thinking.

The research suggests that we could potentially live up to the age of 150 if we can figure out how to maximize one important human trait. Let’s take a closer look…

Anti-aging researchers look to biological age as a strong indicator of a person’s health status – and hence how long […]

The Right “Steps” to Use Exercise For a Longer Life

One study takes a look at the longevity benefits of walking. And researchers made an encouraging discovery: adding more steps to your day, whether all at once or in […]

Revolutionary New Home Test Reveals Your Biological Age

By |2021-06-17T11:17:06+00:00June 17th, 2021|Natural Health|

Aging is not just about genes as so many people imagine. Lifestyle choices matter, too. In fact, for many people poor lifestyle choices such as smoking and remaining sedentary can be the tipping point into aging and illness.

While for others, healthy lifestyle choices such as exercise and nutritious diet can slow down the aging process and dramatically improve health.

This realization has led to the search for molecular markers that can tell whether we’re aging well or badly. Now scientists in England say they’ve found one powerful marker that can be tested at home.

The marker is called a glycan.

Glycans are molecules […]
