Shrinking With Age Can Double Your Risk of Premature Death

By |2021-12-02T12:09:42+00:00December 2nd, 2021|Natural Health|

Height loss is considered a normal part of aging; nothing to be concerned about. But a rapid decline in stature is certainly not normal. In fact, it’s been shown to increase your risk of death.

Even so, height loss is still a surprisingly neglected medical issue. A new study is aiming to change that…

Adult height remains stable up to the age of 50, but then starts a slow decline that accelerates after age 70. Doctors say this height loss is due to shrinkage of vertebral discs, spinal compression fractures, and changes in posture. And women are at greater risk, losing more […]

New Anti-Aging Research on “Play” Surprises Researchers

By |2021-11-25T13:28:42+00:00November 25th, 2021|Natural Health|

All work and no play doesn’t just make you dull. The latest research reveals it could also shorten your life.

Scientists have found that constantly keeping your nose to the grindstone, and hardly ever taking a vacation, can considerably shorten your life expectancy.

Of course, merely taking more vacations won’t be a panacea for all your health issues. And there are actually a few health dangers that can occur during your vacation (which I’ll describe in a moment). But if you go about your holidays the right way, taking time off can be a big boost to your well-being and your longevity.

Scientists Identify New Fountain of Youth Organ?

By |2021-11-11T11:31:34+00:00November 11th, 2021|Natural Health|

With the passage of time, changes to organs and tissues can lead to age-related diseases such as heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s. Dozens of medical teams around the world are investigating how this process could be stopped or reversed.

Now research suggests that slowing down the process of aging—and maybe even stopping it all together—begins in one recently discovered organ.

The research shows that if this organ remained a picture of health so would our bodies.

What is it? This brand-new organ is your gut microbiome…

Your gastrointestinal tract contains a microbiome that performs so many functions necessary for our survival that many scientists […]

World Record for Longevity Smashed – How Much Further Can We Go?

By |2021-10-28T14:45:15+00:00October 28th, 2021|Natural Health|

In September, a man who lived in a remote African village passed away at the ripe old age of 127. If validated and officially recognized, that would make him the oldest person to have ever lived according to scientific record.

This feat of longevity would overtake Jiroemon Kimura from Japan, the previous male record holder who died in 2013 at the age of 116, as well as the current overall world record holder, Jeanne Calment, a French woman who died in 1997 at the age of 122.

Will longevity records continue to be broken in the future or have we reached the […]

Do Bookworms Live Longer?

Whether you’re enjoying a thriller by Stephen King, a bittersweet romance from Danielle Steele, or an Inspector Gamache murder mystery, you’re in for some good news.

Reading these, or indeed any novel, will lengthen your life. Read on to find out why.

Sitting for extended periods of time is not good for health or longevity, yet when you’re reading a book that’s exactly what you’re doing. Even so, some studies – although not all – have found reading reduces the risk of death.

More research was clearly needed to find out if reading really does confer a survival advantage, so that’s what a […]

Not Getting Enough Sleep? One Easy Exercise Can Save Your Health

By |2021-09-30T12:29:40+00:00September 30th, 2021|Natural Health|

It’s a medical fact that poor quality sleep can shave years off your life, so getting on top of this issue is really important.

There are numerous strategies available to improve sleep, from exercise and dietary changes to natural remedies and prescription drugs. However, they don’t work for everyone.

Are these poor sleepers condemned to a shorter life?

Fortunately, no. Researchers point to a simple daily exercise routine that can stave off the worst health damage of sleepless nights.

How are sleep and exercise connected? Well, poor sleep heightens the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, dementia, and early death. So does a lack of […]

Do Power Naps Improve Memory?

By |2021-09-23T13:06:46+00:00September 23rd, 2021|Natural Health|

Do you sometimes sneak in a post-lunch nap, but feel guilty about it? Some recent research will relieve your guilt.

A recent study suggests afternoon naps may be a good thing for older adults and can help them feel mentally sharper.1

But getting these memory-boosting results is all in the timing. Here’s the surprising story and how you can use the science to your advantage…

We’ve covered the napping conundrum before in our newsletters. In one study, researchers found that participants taking longer daytime naps more frequently had a higher risk of Alzheimer’s disease.2

In another study, researchers found that chronic sleepiness could serve […]

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 […]

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 […]
