AGEING...“The key to successful aging is to pay as little attention to it as possible.”

Growing older is inevitable; however we can try to slow down the ageing process & prolong our lives by taking measures to promote continuous cell division. If science could keep the cells from dying & doing bodily harm, the ageing process could be conceivably suspended.

■Eat balanced that includes raw vegetables, fruits, grains, seeds, nuts, & quality protein such as fish, and soy foods. Consume less animal protein. Include in your diet broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, spinach, kale, fruits, whole grains, oats, seeds, soy beans. Avoid processed foods.
■Eat dark skinned fruits such as red apples & nectarines which are good source of bioflavonoids. Also blueberries, raspberries, & blackberries. Bioflavonoids are mostly found in fresh fruits and a vegetable keeps the free radicle from harming the brain & may help protect against Alzheimer's disease.
■Include in your diet garlic, onions, & pearl barely. This food are good source of germanium, potassium, & many other nutrients that lessen free radicle damage & act as catalyst in the supply of oxygen to oxygen-poor tissue.
■An occasional glass of red wine is good for the heart, but limit your alcohol consumption otherwise.
■ Cut back on salt, avoid saturated fats. Avoid caffeine, red meat, white flour, white sugar, chemical food additives, drugs, pesticides & tap water.
■Get regular exercise. Exercise is most important in slowing the ageing process because it increases the amount circulation with deep breathing.
■ Keep the colon clean. Eat high fiber diet and use cleansing enema.
■ Do not use harsh soaps on your skin. Use olive, avocado, or almond oil to cleanse the skin. Pat the oil on, and then wash it off with warm water & soft cloth. Use liquid creams & lotions. Do not use cold creams, or solid moisturizing creams. These are hardened saturated fats that become rancid rapidly and create free radicles, which can cause premature wrinkles. Free radicles can cause brownish spots on the skin known as age spots.
■ Learn how to relax. Keep active and be enthusiastic about life. By keeping up your appearance, exercising everyday & being involved in hobbies and other activities, you can keep your mind active. This is most important. Allow yourself sufficient sleep. Proper rest is important.

Many older adults complain of sleep difficulties. One common cause is the consumption of sugar after dinner. Complex carbohydrates have a relaxing effect. Protein on other hand, promotes alertness, so it should be consumed earlier in the day.

A burning sensation mainly on the bottom of the foot, a deficiency of Vitamin B is often the cause also there is problem with absorption of Vit B.

Ageing is not an illness, but it does increase one chances of developing certain health problems. Constipation, depression, diarrhea, dizziness, heart palpitations, heartburn, indigestion & weight gain are some of more complaints that accompany ageing.

"Age is an issue of mind over matter.If you don't mind, it doesn't matter."
