Almost every week in the media, we are talking here about treatments for certain health problems. The problem is that these stores are often generated from a little hope of information disclosed and that it usually takes ten to twenty years to fix it.
I have heard about anti-aging medications for decades and in 2017 we are not much closer. One of the reasons is that, from the point of view of funding, the anti-aging is not considered a disease and that it is therefore largely ignored except as a project parallel.
By the time I write these lines, I am 60 years old and they found a miracle cure for aging in 20 years, I would have the great chance to stay 80 years living for years!
I can tell you that this is not what I had in mind. So, assuming miracle-aging healing is far away, then when would you like to start slowing down the aging process.
Even if you are only 20 years old, you would be locked up at 40 years old. That would please me, but I'm not so sure that a 20 year old would feel the same way.
Although we do not have a miracle solution yet, we also have good information on aging.
7 tips for aging well.
1. At the end of your DNA, there are things called telomeres. As we age, telomeres become shorter as our DNA replicates. Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn, winner of the Noble Peace Prize, showed in her study that meditating only 12 minutes a day could help maintain telomere length and improve cell replication.
2. Your mitochondria are the engines of your cells and have their own DNA. We can protect our mitochondria by avoiding as much as possible toxic molds and household chemicals.
3. Our cells must allow nutrients to penetrate as efficiently as possible and also be able to eliminate waste. By making sure that you are well hydrated and eating healthy fats, you make sure that the membranes of your cells are working properly.
4. Avoid sugar in all its forms, including cereals and potatoes, reduces the amount of insulin that your cells must meet and thus reduces your inflammation.
5. Have a diet rich in vegetables so that your digestive bacteria is well nourished and maintained to produce vitamins and chemicals necessary for the brain.
6. Eat healthy proteins to boost your immune system, such as meat, lentils, cheese and, to a lesser extent, vegetables. No protein bars and shakes.
7. Move your body every day in many ways, such as walking, stretching, and occasional heavy weight.
