Natural remedies for menopause symptoms — meaning those that don’t involve taking hormone replacement therapy drugs — are safe and can be helpful during this transition phase to decrease symptom severity and duration.

Top foods causing hot flashes and other menopausal symptoms
1) Processed Sugar – Yeast and candida overgrowth in the gut which causes inflammation
2) Processed Soy – Contain estrogens
3) Conventional Meats – Packed with hormones, steroids and antibiotics that affect your hormones causing low sex drive and low energy
4) Packaged Foods – Contain hydrogenated oils and refined flours
5) Artificial Sweeteners – Sucralose, Aspartame and Splenda
6) Gluten – Cause inflammation of gut lining and can lead to autoimmune disease

Top foods to help balance hormones and get rid of menopause symptoms
1) Healthy fats – avocado (high in potassium, magnesium and omega-9 fats)

2) Omega 3 fatty acid – wild-caught salmon and wild-caught fish
3) Grass-Fed beef – full of iron
4) Berries – High in Antioxidants
5) Flaxseeds and Flax Meal – sprouted or chia or hemp (add to a morning smoothie)
6) Coconut Products – balance blood sugar
7) Cruciferous vegetables – broccoli, cabbage, turnips, kale – help to remove phytoestrogens to detox

Supplements for menopause
1) Black Cohosh – http://draxe.com/black-cohosh/
2) Vitex – balance many hormones in body and help female organs
3) Adaptogen Herbs – ginseng, ashwagandha, holy basil
4) Omega-3 – Reduce inflammation
5) Collagen Protein Powder
6) Probiotics – Help digestion – 95% of serotonin is produced in gut
7) Essential Oils – Clary Sage and Thyme – balance hormones
• Ylang Ylang, orange, sandalwood (balance mood)

Lifestyle
1) Reduce stress
2) Detox Bath (epsom salts with essential oils)
3) Go on walks throughout the day
4) Give yourself some free time

10 Tips on Staying Fit Through Menopause – What to Expect & How to Cope.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c4iCx5lKpLI
“..Menopause is defined as having no menstrual periods for a year and causes various changes to your body due to reduced production of estrogen and progesterone in your ovaries. The average woman goes through menopause somewhere between the ages of 48-55, but start preparing early since all that you do now can impact how intense the symptoms are and how your body is affected. Outplay and outlast the next chapter of your life by following these 10 quick tips! 1: Focus on your nutrition to help your body keep hormones balanced. Cholesterol is known to spike during the years surrounding your ever approaching menopause therefore eat right by consistently including vegetables and fruit in your diet and ward off recipes and foods high in sodium. 2: Recent studies found that middle aged women who engaged in aerobic exercises four times per week for six months experienced fewer mood swings, reduced night sweats and less irritability compared with those who didn’t. Exercise can be utilized as a relaxation technique during this frazzled time since it’s known to reduce stress chemicals like cortisol and adrenaline. 3: Menopause can be a great stress but it really doesn’t have to be. Find new hobbies, tap into meditation exercises and discover new joys this new phase has to offer. Like…finally not having any more periods?..”

Locals Stunned By 79 Year Old’s Energetic Workout Routine

“..CCTV Video News Agency
Published on Jun 16, 2016
An elderly man in central China’s Henan Province has become an idol to many fitness enthusiasts for his energetic workout routines.

Zhang Zhuofu, a 79-year-old fitness fanatic in the city of Xuchang in Henan Province, can perform two-finger push-ups, lifting his body weight using only his thumbs and index fingers, and can complete between 40 to 50 push-ups in one go.

Zhang’s other amazing stunts include contortion exercises which show off his extreme physical flexibility, while another of his tricks includes holding his body parallel to the ground while grabbing onto a tree trunk.

“I’ve never seen it before. It’s astounding. He is 79 years old. I would never have believed it if I had not seen it with my own eyes,” said one impressed resident.

Zhang has performed his workout ritual for nearly 20 years, but says it took him six or seven years to master some of the more difficult stunts.

He said he had never fallen ill over the past two decades, and has dedicated his life to staying healthy.

“The most important thing for a person is not money but health and life. So we must keep fit,” said Zhang. More on: http://www.cctvplus.com/news/20160616…..”

73-Year-Old on the CrossFit Games Open: “I’m Doing It This Year!”
https://youtu.be/xUb6E81YQ6A
“Nancy Hoshaw survived a heart attack at 48 and breast cancer at 60. At 73, she’s entering the CrossFit Games Open, which kicked off Feb. 25. While some compete to be named Fittest on Earth, Hoshaw is competing with time and age—and she’s winning. After seeing decrepit women on a trip to Israel, Hoshaw decided a slow slide into a retirement home wasn’t for her. “My goal is to stay healthy and independent. I cherish my independence,” she says. Her coach at CrossFit Bay Area in Webster, Texas, is two-time CrossFit Games athlete Jordan Cook. Cook describes CrossFit as a lifestyle, noting how the community keeps people active and energized while they preserve and improve function. “The whole point of … functional fitness is not just to get better at fitness but to help us in our everyday life,” Cook explains. While Hoshaw was dead set against doing the Open last year, she’s all in for 2016. When Cook shared an Instagram video of Hoshaw preparing for the five-week competition about a month ago, she inspired people around the world and found more motivation herself. “I feel like I can encourage other people, but at the same time I’m encouraged myself,” she says. “It’s amazing the doors that you can open if you just … give it a try.” Video by Elliot and Lindsay Schrock. The CrossFit Journal — (http://journal.crossfit.com)..”

‘….”Retirement is one of the worst things that you can do to yourself,” Eugster told TODAY from his home in Zurich, Switzerland. …

“We must do everything in our power to see that older people are healthy and productive because if we don’t do that we are facing enormous problems between pension liabilities and our health costs,” he said. “We should have retraining facilities for older people. You are throwing away the skills and expertise of people at 65, and that is absolutely ridiculous…

…Eugster also stresses that you’re never too old to get in shape. He didn’t start doing any serious weight training until he was 87, and he didn’t start running until he turned 95. ..

He began working out three days a week in a gym with a former Mr. Universe to put on muscle and also lost 24 pounds before he turned 88. Eugster is currently working with a trainer to get his “beach body” ready for summer despite a hamstring pull at a race on April 13. …”

The 8-foot up and go test is the best way to assess physical function in the rheumatoid arthritis clinic academic.oup.com
“..RA patients typically experience adverse, inflammatory-driven changes in body composition, which result in muscle wasting and increased fat mass. This condition, termed rheumatoid cachexia (RC) [1], is a major contributor to the impaired physical function of these patients [2, 3]. Poor physical function is a strong predictor of clinical outcome in RA, and is associated with increased morbidity and mortality, reduced quality of life and higher treatment costs [4–6]. Both patients and health-care professionals identify physical function as a key outcome in the management of RA [7] and improving function as an important therapeutic target in clinical care [6, 8–10]. Hence, accurate assessment of physical function is required if RA treatment is to be optimized [10]…”

In the study we used the two-minute step test, the six-minute walk test, the cardiopulmonary exercise test and isometric dynamometer armchair. Results: Patients who performed more steps during the two-minute step test covered a longer distance during the six-minute walk test (r = 0.45).

Designing Balance Exercise Programs for Older Adults acefitness.org
“..Decreased balance is attributable to an age-related decline in multiple physiological systems that contributes to decreased muscle flexibility and strength, reduced central processing of sensory information, and slowed motor responses (American Geriatrics Society, British Geriatrics Society, and American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeon Panel on Falls Prevention, 2001). In addition to an increased risk of falls, diminished balance and mobility may limit activities of daily living or participation in leisure-time activities. Accordingly, it is essential that balance exercises be incorporated into the physical activity programs of older adults. The following article uses case studies to outline the critical components of designing individualized balance exercise programs for clients that reduce their risk of falls. Sample balance exercises and training progressions (from simple to complex) will also be presented…”

FUN EXERCISES FOR SENIORS: WHAT YOU CAN DO WHILE WATCHING TV cedarsofchapelhill.com
“Fun Exercises for Seniors: What you can do while watching TV
Tired of exercise rudely interrupting your binge watching sessions of your favorite TV show? …

Seated Jumping-Jacks

While traditional jumping jacks are possible while watching TV, they can also be a bit hard on your joints. Instead, do a seated version by sitting on the edge of your chair and lifting your arms up and open wide while also spreading your legs apart. Do a set of 10 of these as quickly as possible, rest and repeat. This will keep your limbs moving and circulating.

Leg Extensions

To do a proper leg extension, simply sit in your chair, extend one leg out and flex your foot so only your heel touches the floor, then raise your leg as high as you can without rounding your back. Hold this for a count of three, lower your leg, repeat or alternate with your other leg.

Use Your Water Bottle

The most obvious use for a water bottle (other than drinking from it, of course) is using it as a hand weight, however it can also be used to strengthen your thighs. To do this, simply sit on your chair with your back straight and shoulders back. Plant your feet on the floor, with your ankles in line with your knees. Now, place a water bottle between your legs and squeeze your thighs around it 30 times. It may not sound like much at first, but when you try it you’ll feel how your thigh muscles will work during this.

Bonus: Do this while also doing the arm exercises listed below.

Elbow Curls

This exercise will help stretch your chest and shoulder muscles and help decrease upper back pain and stress. Simply place your hands on either side of your head with your elbows pointed out then bring your elbows together in front of your face then pull them back to the starting position, repeat up to 30 times.

Arm Circles

It doesn’t get much simpler than this, but if you haven’t exercised in a while, this could be a beneficial way to flex muscles you forgot you even had. For this, simply sit on the edge of your seat and extend your arms out at your side at shoulder height. Move your arms in small circles 20 times going forward and 20 times going back before resting.

Create a Routine Around the Program You’re Watching

A simple way to get yourself moving is to plan on moving around during the commercials (no fair DVRing something and fast forwarding the commercials!). Instead of using this time to grab a snack, stand up and march or walk in place.

You can also create a routine based on the individual show. For example, whenever a certain character comes on screen make sure you do at least one exercise from this list or even just simply stretch your arms above your head or stretch your legs out to keep your joints from stiffening.

Treadmill

Not the most creative exercise on this list, but it is effective and something most people can do no matter what their level of physical fitness is. If you can’t put a treadmill in front of your current television, consider getting a treadmill with a screen already attached. Yes, these exist now and are making it even harder for many people to make excuses for not working out.

Already have a treadmill and you’re not willing to take up living room space with it? Simple, get a TV for the room where you’re treadmill is. While no fitness trainer is likely to encourage you to get more televisions, if the options are not working out at all, or working out with a TV in your home gym, then this is clearly the better plan.

Looking for a retirement community where you can enjoy television and exercise in your own home while also having plenty of options for social and aerobic activities? The Cedars of Chapel Hill, North Carolina offers a fitness center complete with treadmills, indoor pool and, of course, television. Visit their website to learn about life at The Cedars.

CAUSES

Understanding Hair Loss — the Basics webmd.com
“…There are many types of hair loss, also called alopecia:….

Telogen effluvium is temporary hair thinning over the scalp that occurs because of changes in the growth cycle of hair. A large number of hairs enter the resting phase at the same time, causing hair shedding and subsequent thinning…”

Causes of Hair Loss in Young Men belgraviacentre.com
“…Stress is an often cited cause of temporary hair loss, and it can trigger genetic patterns of hair loss.

Certain other lifestyle choices are also thought to play a part in the development of hair loss in young men, such as issues with their diet, and smoking. The chemicals and carcinogens found in tobacco are believed to slow down hair growth which leads to thinning hair and can result in significant hair loss if not addressed. Recreational drug use also has the potential to cause hair loss because they can be a shock to the system. Drug use is often accompanied by nutrient depletion and deteriorated health, which means temporary or permanent hair loss is a very probable side effect….”

Hair loss Fact or Fiction? Do hats cause baldness? And more!


“Published on Oct 13, 2014

Ken Paves and Dr. Keri Peterson debunk hair loss myths with Katie Couric. Hair loss part two.”

-Hats?

Does Wearing a Hat Cause Hair Loss? Eileen Bailey / @eileenbailey , Patient Expert healthcentral.com
“…One of the myths surrounding hair loss is that wearing hats will cause or contribute to premature baldness. Fortunately, for men like Mark, this is not true. There is no scientific research that shows wearing a hat contributes to hair loss. In order for a hat to cause hair loss, it would need to be tight enough to cut off circulation to the hair follicles.

One of the reasons many people believe that hats cause hair loss is because of the amount of hair left inside a hat when you take it off. Whenever you see this, you might worry that your hair is quickly falling out. But we lose hair every day, as much as 80 to 100 strands daily. Usually, you will see this as you comb and brush your hair or when you shower. However, your hats may catch some of this hair and as it builds up over time, it may seem as if there is a lot of hair in your hat.

What Does Cause Hair Loss?

There are a number of reasons for hair loss:

Stress or illness
Hormonal problems, such as hyper- or hypo-thyroidism
As a side effect of some medications
Fungal infections
Wearing tight hairstyles such as pigtails or cornrows
Overuse of chemicals found in permanents or relaxers

Is Your Shampoo Causing Hair Loss? Try These Tips from a Specialist by Lois Joy Johnson | blog.aarp.org
“..Dr. Robert Dorin has identified a number of ingredients that may be at the root of the problem. Here are some to avoid:

Foamers and thickeners. Dr. Dorin says that sodium laurel sulfate, or SLS – the chemical that produces all that nice, bubbly lather – “strips hair of essential oils, breaks down protein essential for hair health, and halts growth. Sodium chloride (better known as table salt) is used as a thickener in products containing SLS, but it can cause dry, itchy scalp and encourage hair loss. Polyethylene glycol (also known as PEG, polyethylene or polyoxyethelyne) is another thickener that strips hair of moisture. If you’re undergoing salon keratin treatments, these ingredients undo the benefits.”..”

Male Hair Loss Causes and Treatments – Understanding Male Pattern Baldness and What You Can Do


“…There is a wide range of male hair loss causes, and thanks to modern medicine, many choices of hair loss treatment for you to consider. The majority of men lose their hair thanks to inherited genes and the normal aging process, but there are other causes as well. The key to selecting an effective hair loss treatment is to determine the underlying cause of hair loss and then select among the assortment of hair loss solutions to find the most appropriate treatment.

Male Pattern Baldness.

Up to 90% of all male hair loss is due to male pattern baldness, also called androgenetic alopecia. In this situation, the cause of hair loss is due to genes inherited from the father, the mother, or both. The older a man gets the more likely balding is to occur, although some men begin to lose their hair as early as their late teens or early twenties.

Male pattern baldness generally appears in one of two ways – thinning hair on the crown of the head or a receding hairline. One way to predict the balding a man will experience is to look at hair loss and causes in his relatives. This is not always accurate, though, as sometimes male pattern baldness can skip a generation.

Cause of Male Pattern Baldness.

Experts say that as many as 50% of all men will experience hair loss, ranging from mild to moderate, by the time they turn 50 years old, and 65% of males will have perceptible baldness by the time they are 60 years old. Whether due to aging, genetics or a combination of the two, why exactly is it that hair loss occurs?

The answer is a chemical called dehydrotestosterone, or DHT. It is a male hormone that collects and builds up around hair follicles, eventually causing the follicle and the hair growing out of it to be killed. As DHT levels rise with aging, more and more follicles are affected by it and hair loss becomes more pronounced.

Other Male Hair Loss Causes…”

Women

10 Common Causes Of Hair Loss In Women self.com
“..There are many different types of hair loss. Some, like genetic andogenetic alopecia (female pattern hair loss) are irreversible and out of your control—you get the hand you’re dealt. But others, like the very common telogen effluvium, which is temporarily increased shedding caused by a wide variety of health and hormonal changes, can be fixed. With telogen effluvium hair loss, you need to think back to four or so months before to determine the culprit, Bethanee Schlosser, M.D., assistant professor of dermatology and director of the Women’s Skin Health Program for Northwestern Medicine, tells SELF. “Shedding peaks about four months after the incident” that caused it, she explains. Other types of hair loss may happen progressively over some time and depending on whether they damage the hair follicle, can be either permanent or fleeting.

If you’ve noticed your hair is falling out more than usual, looks thinner, or seems to be growing more slowly, here are some of the most likely things that could be causing it…”

PREVENTION

7 Foods That Stop Hair Loss By Leah Polakoff September 1, 2016 prevention.com
“…While contending with bald spots and thinning tresses is stressful, there is hope: Research shows that it’s possible to thicken hair back up through dietary changes.

Fill your plate with the following foods, which are rich in proven hair-growth nutrients, as described in the new book Eat for Extraordinary Health & Healing. ..

Salmon

Hair is a protein fiber (as are nails), which means you need to eat protein to grow new strands and keep the existing ones strong. Protein is also required to produce keratin, a key structural component of hair.

A smart choice is marine-based protein, like salmon, which has been shown to boost hair health in women thanks to its omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin content.

Honey

When used as a topical treatment, honey can improve the look of thinning hair. In a study of patients experiencing seborrheic dermatitis, which includes scaling, itching, and hair loss, those who applied a solution of 90% honey and 10% water to their scalp every other day for 4 weeks reported an improvement in hair loss at the end of the study….


Seaweed

A recent study found that a supplement containing cistanche tubulosa (a desert plant used in traditional Chinese medicine) and laminaria japonica (an edible brown seaweed) promoted hair growth in people with mild to moderate hair loss. After 16 weeks of supplementation, volunteers saw a 13% increase in hair volume and a 27% increase in hair thickness. The supplement was also effective at treating scalp inflammation and dandruff.

8 (Actually Delicious) Foods That Can Make Your Hair Grow Faster stylecaster.com
by Natasha Burton stylecaster.com
“..Yellow peppers

Yellow bell peppers have nearly five and a half times more vitamin C than oranges (341 milligrams, as opposed to 63). This is very good news for your locks—vitamin C is an antioxidant that strengthens the hair shaft and hair follicles, as well as prevents breakage.

Oysters

Zinc deficiency has been known to cause hair loss and poor scalp conditions, and oysters are loaded with zinc—just three ounces contains 493-percent of your daily value. But not just any oysters will do: Steer clear of the ones caught in the Gulf of Mexico, which may contain unusually high levels of Cadmium due to the 2010 BP oil spill.

…Eggs

Eggs are an excellent source of those aforementioned omega-3s, and they are also contain biotin (which many people trying to grow their hair take in supplement form). But be aware: It’s not the “healthier” egg white that will make your hair long and beautiful, it’s the yolk. Eating too many egg whites can actually block the absorption of biotin into the body, causing a depletion of this micronutrient.
Sunflower seeds

Just a few little seeds can supply you with an abundance of vitamin E, which will enhance blood flow to the scalp and promote faster hair growth.
Sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes are loaded with beta carotene, the precursor for vitamin A that not only promotes a healthy scalp but effectively promotes hair growth, too. Choose foods loaded with beta carotene over supplementing with high doses (over 2500 milligrams) of vitamin A from retinol, since it can be toxic at very high levels….”

Injury – leading to degenerative arthritis
Abnormal metabolism – leading to gout and pseudogout
Inheritance – such as in osteoarthritis
Infections – such as in the arthritis of Lyme disease
Immune system dysfunction – such as in RA and SLE.

A bone mineral density (BMD) test is the best way to determine your bone health. This test can identify osteoporosis, determine your risk for fractures (broken bones), and measure your response to osteoporosis treatment. The most widely recognized BMD test is called a dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry, or DXA test. The test is safe and painless, a bit like having an x-ray, but with much less exposure to radiation. It can measure bone density at your hip and spine and takes only 15 minutes to complete. For a DXA test, you will be asked to lie on a table while a machine above you measures your bone density….”

9 Natural Remedies for Psoriatic Arthritis by Amanda Gardner health.com
“…When it comes to natural treatments for psoriatic arthritis, there’s not a ton of research. Conventional drugs have been shown to delay damage from the disease, but alternative therapies have not.

“Many of these supplements or vitamins may ease some of the symptoms of psoriatic arthritis, but none have been shown to prevent damage,” says Guy Fiocco, MD, assistant professor of internal medicine at Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine, in Bryan.

That said, here are nine vitamins or remedies that may be helpful in addition to conventional treatment….

Turmeric

A member of the ginger family, this spice may ease symptoms of psoriatic arthritis. The reasoning seems to be that turmeric has an effect on reducing certain inflammatory proteins, at least in the test tube, explains Dr. Matteson.
..

Vitamin D deficiencies are common in people with psoriatic arthritis, a 2011 study found, but it wasn’t clear why. (Because sun exposure ups the body’s vitamin D, spending time indoors can lead to a deficiency.)

Sal: What are some ways (e.g. walk, biking, yard work, etc..) to absorb the sun? How about winter time? I usually take this Vitamin D supplement-only on days when the sun didn’t come out.

“…Vitamin K

Although vitamin K—which is found in green, leafy vegetables such as kale, spinach, and broccoli, as well as canola and olive oils—is important for joint health, it has not been studied in psoriatic arthritis.

However, one report found that low vitamin K levels were associated with more severe osteoarthritis in a group of almost 700 patients.
..”

“..Vitamin B12

Like vitamin D, one study found that vitamin B12 deficiencies were more common in people with psoriatic arthritis than those without it.

But again, like vitamin D, B12 doesn’t seem to be a primary treatment option, says Dr. Fiocco, who is also the director of rheumatology at Scott & White, in Temple, Texas.

Vitamin B12 is found in clams, trout, fortified breakfast cereals, and yogurt…”

Arthri D3
“.. Some of the things that make Arthri-D3® so unique is that it’s an all-natural, well balanced proprietary blend of antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals. It also contains 2000 IUs of Vitamin D3. No other joint health product has this blend including N-Acetyl-Glucosamine and vitamin D3, which studies have shown are extremely important for joint health. .”

Whether it’s an online quiz, a $300 chromosome test, or an $800 blood panel, a lot of people seem to be interested in whether they’re aging faster or slower than their chronological age would suggest.
“..“People age at different rates and geriatric medicine needs a way to measure that,” says lead author Daniel Belsky, an assistant professor of population health sciences at Duke University. But when measuring all sorts of different aspects of a person’s physiology, from genes to blood markers to balance and grip strength, “you see a lot of disagreement.”

10 Anti-Aging Beauty Secrets
Home » News & Facts » 10 Anti-Aging Beauty Secrets
top10homeremedies.com
“Here are the top 10 anti-aging beauty secrets.

1. Follow a Good Skin Care Regimen
Irrespective of your age, you need to follow a good skin care regimen for healthy skin. When your skin is healthy, it will not show early signs of aging.

Cleanse your face daily with a gentle cleanser, both in the morning and at night. This will keep your skin clean, soft and free of pore-clogging debris. When buying a cleanser, avoid those with high alcohol content and other drying agents.
Apply a good quality moisturizer over your entire face, neck, hands and legs twice daily. This will help prevent dry and aging skin.
Exfoliate your skin once a week with a gentle facial scrub. This will encourage skin cell renewal, making your skin look younger. It will also help get rid of dead skin cells and keep your skin smooth, healthy, bright and fresh.
2. Choose Skin Care Products Wisely
Many people make the mistake of using the wrong type of skin care products. This can cause tingling, itching, dryness and irritation. It’s easy to rectify or avoid this mistake.

Determine your skin type by analyzing your T-zone area and then choose suitable products to keep it healthy and young. Also, avoid using too many cosmetic products at the same time.
When you are past your mid-20s, use products with retinol, peptides and antioxidants. Retinol promotes an increase of collagen and elastic production. Peptides can stimulate collagen production and cell repair to help you get younger-looking skin. Antioxidants will protect your skin from the sun and speed up the natural skin repair system.
If you have any doubts, you can always consult a dermatologist for help find the right products for your skin care needs.

3. Wear Sunscreen Everyday
Sunscreen is the ultimate anti-aging tool recommended by beauty experts. Be it summer, winter, autumn or rainy days, you must not leave your home without applying a good quality sunscreen on any exposed body parts.

Too much exposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage your skin, particularly its elastin, and cause a loss of collagen. This in turn can lead to sun spots, wrinkles, an uneven tone, dryness, rough skin and sunburn.

Apply an SPF 15 (or greater) sunscreen every day, even in the winter. For maximum anti-aging benefits, make sure to apply sunscreen on your ears, neck, legs and hands along with your face.

4. Get Your Beauty Sleep Daily
To stay looking young for years, get 7 to 8 hours of beauty sleep daily without fail. In fact, sleep is considered the most powerful rejuvenating treatment to maintain youthfulness.

When you sleep, adrenaline and corticosteroid levels drop and the body starts to produce growth hormone. During this time, the repair and growth process of cells occurs. If you don’t get enough sleep, this function is impaired and leads to inflammation that causes many signs of aging like wrinkles, dull complexion and fines lines.

A good night’s sleep also has many health benefits like better memory, mood, attention and concentration as well as a reduced risk of heart attack and stroke.

To improve your sleep, maintain a regular bedtime, avoid caffeinated beverages before bedtime, take a warm bath with a few drops of aromatherapy oil in the evening, and sleep on the right mattress and pillows.

5. Exercise Daily
Exercise is good for your body and mind. Regular exercise improves blood flow and keeps your skin healthy and vibrant. It also regulates your hormones and promotes proper sleep.

According to a study published in the journal Circulation, exercise has anti-inflammatory potential and decreases the risk of developing inflammatory diseases like heart disease and obesity.

Exercise also combats the loss of stamina, muscle strength, balance and bone density that increases with age.

Do some sort of physical activity for 20 to 30 minutes daily. Activities that can help slow down the aging process are running, walking, dancing, cycling, gardening and even housework. Aerobic exercise classes and yoga also help a lot.

Discover the 6 Best Anti Aging Treatments
April 29, 2013 healthyandnaturalworld.com
“Below are 6 good anti aging treatments that are natural and don’t involve going under the knife or other invasive medical procedures:
1. Sesame Oil….
2. Fish Oil


*see Health: Nutrition-Macronutrients Fats

According to studies, taking enough of fish oil supplements appears to have enormous health benefits including dramatic anti aging effects. Fish oil has anti inflammatory benefits, improves heart and immune functions and helps hair grow and skin look healthy. Specifically, taking these supplements regularly may lower the risk for a host of diseases associated with aging, including coronary heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, arthritis and even Alzheimer’s disease. Read here more about the amazing health benefits of omega 3 fish oil.

3. Limit white sugar consumption…
4. Antioxidants

Antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E, help fight free radicals that break down collagen and thus slowing aging process. A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in October 2007 found that people who ate foods rich in vitamin C had fewer wrinkles and less age-related dry skin than those whose diets contained only small amounts of the vitamin. Vitamin C also helps form collagen, which smooths fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C also seems to protect against UV sun rays, which can lead to freckles and a mottled complexion and does some repair and firming of the skin. Berries are packed with vitamin C as well as other nutrients, and are known to delay the aging process and to fight free radicals that damage our body. To learn more about the amazing healing properties of berries, have a look at my e-book The Healing Berry Guide. This e-book will teach you how to transform your health with berries.
Experts continue to argue whether antioxidants can prevent heart disease, but some of the evidence is highly persuasive. It is therefore a good idea to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, which are full of vitamin C as well as other healthy nutrients. You can also read my article about the best ways to combine antioxidants in your daily diet. You can also find more information about healthy eating and nutrition in my e-book Effortless Healthy Eating which is part of the Natural Health Revolution Program. This program will help you to achieve your health, nutrition and weight loss goals…

9 Ways to Boost Glutathione draxe.com
“..What Is Glutathione?

Glutathione (GSH) is a peptide consisting of three key amino acids that plays several vital roles in the body. Longevity researchers believe that it is so pivotal to our health that the level of GSH in our cells is becoming a predictor of how long we will live! (2, 3, 4)..”

Top 9 Foods & Supplements to Boost Glutathione..

1. Milk Thistle

Used for centuries by traditional folk medicine all across the world, milk thistle has long been praised as a remedy for immune dysfunction. Specifically, silymarin, a unique flavonoid complex derived from the milk thistle plant, has been used for liver damage and biliary tract disease. According to scientists, the secret to milk thistle’s healing prowess is its ability to enhance GSH. Shown to boost glutathione levels in ethanol-induced rats, it was discovered that milk thistle could actually help protect the liver from toxicity in the presence of alcohol consumption; which is well-known to cause glutathione levels to plummet. (17)

2. Whey Protein

Whey protein replenishes glutathione by boosting cysteine which helps rebuild glutathione when it is depleted from an immune response. (18) According to a recent studies, whey protein is the ideal supplement to help naturally increase glutathione for both fighting cancer, strengthening the immune system, increasing metabolism, and reducing appetite. (19, 20) Rich in glutathione, it is extremely important to purchase the right type of whey protein. Avoid any whey protein that is processed, or protein isolate. I recommend grass-fed why or goat whey protein as a dietary supplement. You will want to use a whey protein powder that is all natural or organic (when possible) and is completely free of pesticides, hormones, genetically modified organisms, artificial sweeteners and is gluten free.

3. Sulfur Foods

Since the mid-1990s, it has been a well-established fact that GSH concentrations take a nosedive in the liver and lungs when sulphur amino acid intake is inadequate. (20) This is one of the many reasons I recommend sulfur-rich, cancer-fighting cruciferous vegetables as a critical part of any natural health regimen. These include:..

. NAC

The unbelievably effective asthma remedy N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) helps decrease the severity and frequency of wheezing and respiratory attacks by boosting glutathione and thinning bronchial mucus. NAC is actually a precursor to GSH and it has recently been proven highly efficient at treating neurocognitive issues like addiction, compulsive behaviors, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. (21) I recommend taking 200-500mg 1x daily.
Stethoscope and diabetes

5. α-Lipoic Acid

a-Lipoic Acid helps restore GSH levels with any immune system depletion. In fact, it is part of my Reverse Diabetes Naturally in 30 Days or Less plan. Only 300-1200 mg of alpha lipoic acid daily helps improves insulin sensitivity and reduces symptoms of diabetic neuropathy. It has also been shown clinically to restore total blood GSH status and lymphocyte function in HIV/AIDS patients. (22)

6. Methylation Nutrients (Vitamins B6, B9, B12, and biotin)

In the words of Dr. Mark Hyman, methylation ingredients “are perhaps the most critical to keep the body producing glutathione.” (23) The best (natural) way to keep your methylation ingredients at optimal levels is to simply eat these Top Folate Foods:..

7. Selenium

Selenium works as a powerful anti-oxidant and is required for your body to create GSH. Be sure to stock your refrigerator and pantry with these Top Selenium Foods: ..

8. Vitamin C & E

Vitamin C helps raise glutathione in red blood cells and lymphocytes. (24) Vitamin E is an important antioxidant that works with GSH to prevent damage from reactive oxygen and protects glutathione-dependent enzymes.(25) So working together, Vitamin C and E help recycle glutathione and keep you disease-free! Eating these Top Vitamin C and Top Vitamin E foods should be on all of our to-do lists. They together help keep glutathione at optimal levels and boost your immune systems and overall body function!…

9. Beef Liver..

This Is Why You Have Gray Hair March 19, 2016 articles.mercola.com
‘..Oxidative stress: Oxidative stress can be defined as the state in which your free radicals (from pollution, poor diet, stress, etc.) outnumber your antioxidant defenses (from healthy diet). Graying hair may be an indicator of oxidative stress-induced damage.10

Research has also shown that people with premature graying had a higher level of pro-oxidants and lower levels of antioxidants than those with normal hair.11

• Vitamin B12 deficiency: This is also linked to premature gray hair, and there is at least one report of pigmentation returning to hair after the vitamin deficiency was resolved.12..”

Detox fans who claim avoiding ACID food slows down ageing… and why the experts say they’re dangerously wrong, dailymail.co.uk
“…And because our blood is slightly alkaline, with a normal pH of between 7.35 and 7.45, our diet should reflect this.
The problem, say alkaliners, is that we eat too many ‘acid-forming’ foods — wheat, dairy, meat, seafood, sugar, coffee, tea, fizzy drinks and alcohol….

This they say causes a pH imbalance which apparently disrupts the body’s ability to regulate itself — leading to a range of problems from low energy and poor memory, headaches, bloating, muscle pain and insomnia to more serious conditions such as osteoporosis.

How Fast Can Alcohol Age You? Posted on 2/10/2012 | Jodi Sawyer, RN | doctoroz.com
“..Can drinking alcohol really speed up the aging process? Well, the truth is that yes, it can make you age faster by causing wrinkles. This includes premature wrinkles, loss of collagen, elasticity, redness, dehydration and puffiness. However, it’s the amount and frequency of your drinking that really matters. There are actually some recent studies that indicate that alcohol has some health benefits – when you drink in moderation.

To begin with, there are no nutrients in alcohol. In fact, alcohol can adversely affect your nutrition levels by causing a depletion in healthy nutrients that aid in carrying oxygen throughout your body. Specifically, alcohol can have a huge negative impact on your vitamin A level, which is a very important antioxidant for your skin/body and it is vital in the regeneration of new cells.

Vitamin A is also extremely important in the production of collagen. When you have lower amounts of collagen, you lose elasticity in your skin. Collagen and elasticity are what keep your skin supple, taut and looking young. ..”

“It’s no secret that paying attention to diet, exercise, stress levels and getting social support may extend your life. But a new study shows healthy living may even reverse aging deep in our cells….
Ten of the subjects were asked to eat a plant-based diet high in fruits, vegetables and unrefined grains, but also low in fat and refined carbohydrates. They were also told to exercise moderately (meaning walking 30 minutes a day, six days a week) and reduced their stress through yoga, breathing and meditation. The subjects in this group were required to attend a weekly group support meeting….

=>Ikaria (island)

The Island Where People Forget to Die By DAN BUETTNEROCT. 24, 2012 nytimes.com
“..One day in 1976, Moraitis felt short of breath. Climbing stairs was a chore; he had to quit working midday. After X-rays, his doctor concluded that Moraitis had lung cancer. As he recalls, nine other doctors confirmed the diagnosis. They gave him nine months to live. He was in his mid-60s…

Moraitis considered staying in America and seeking aggressive cancer treatment at a local hospital. That way, he could also be close to his adult children. But he decided instead to return to Ikaria, where he could be buried with his ancestors in a cemetery shaded by oak trees that overlooked the Aegean Sea. …

Starting in 2002, we identified three other populations around the world where people live measurably longer lives than everyone else. The world’s longest-lived women are found on the island of Okinawa. On Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula, we discovered a population of 100,000 mestizos with a lower-than-normal rate of middle-age mortality. And in Loma Linda, Calif., we identified a population of Seventh-day Adventists in which most of the adherents’ life expectancy exceeded the American average by about a decade….

But more than that, they were also living about 8 to 10 years longer before succumbing to cancers and cardiovascular disease, and they suffered less depression and about a quarter the rate of dementia. Almost half of Americans 85 and older show signs of Alzheimer’s. (The Alzheimer’s Association estimates that dementia cost Americans some $200 billion in 2012.) On Ikaria, however, people have been managing to stay sharp to the end….

Seeking to learn more about the island’s reputation for long-lived residents, I called on Dr. Ilias Leriadis, one of Ikaria’s few physicians, in 2009. On an outdoor patio at his weekend house, he set a table with Kalamata olives, hummus, heavy Ikarian bread and wine. “People stay up late here,” Leriadis said. “We wake up late and always take naps. I don’t even open my office until 11 a.m. because no one comes before then.” He took a sip of his wine. “Have you noticed that no one wears a watch here? No clock is working correctly. When you invite someone to lunch, they might come at 10 a.m. or 6 p.m. We simply don’t care about the clock here.”..

Honey, too, is treated as a panacea. “They have types of honey here you won’t see anyplace else in the world,” he said. “They use it for everything from treating wounds to curing hangovers, or for treating influenza. Old people here will start their day with a spoonful of honey. They take it like medicine.”..
