One of the inevitable events that we humans face and fear is aging. We try to do everything possible, from cosmetic surgery, to engaging in activities that remind us and keep us young. The heart beats billions of times during the course of our lifetime, our brain cells are consumed and destroyed with every passing year, and with every chemically induced trauma we enjoy and engage in. Yet many live life as if they were invincible and immortal, failing to think things through and forgetting that what we do on a daily basis can and will enhance the aging process.
Aging is affected by our thinking, eating, movement, sleeping habits, and overall attitude in life. No good deed goes unnoticed in our cellular system, and did you know that your skin is your largest organ? We bathe ourselves with Chlorine, soaps that contain all sorts of chemicals and we are in offices with sick air conditioning systems and lights, and pretty much are exposed to all sorts of aging chemicals and situations that help father time along. So what can you do to prevent or do some damage control?
First of all hydrate yourself, half a gallon to a gallon of water with lime or lemon will do you the world of good. Start your day off with a tall glass of water and 1-2 tbsp of Apple cider vinegar. Eat as much raw unaltered foods as possible, except for animal products, well stay away from those if you can, all together. Eating meat, poultry, and dairy will really age you quickly, and not to mention create all sorts of unwanted diseases. Eating dead carcasses that underwent stressful situation for your consumption, can wreak havoc on your system. The more natural, stress-free eating that you do, in its raw form, the more alive your body will feel, and every cell will thank you.
Have you ever thought of fasting? Fasting is one of the greatest things you can do to prevent aging and to restore dead cells in your body. Eating is actually killing you, believe it or not, the less you eat, the longer you will live. Fasting every 4 months or twice a year will reset your system, help you heal old injuries and prevent diseases. Once coming off your fast, introduce foods that are whole, real and easy to digest. Your body spends so much time trying to break down foods that it is literally creating problems that you are unaware of. Eat fresh organic if possible, fruits and veggies. Eat to your heart's desire, no counting calories, in fact, you will feel fuller than ever when you consume water-rich foods, that are packed with nutrients and not dead calories, and you will have to make it your business to eat lots of it.
The year old question is how do you get your protein, well let me tell you, spinach has more protein, usable protein that is, than a dead piece of meat. The food you are consuming after it has been killed and cooked has very little use for your cells, and is actually just killing you, while making you sick, tired and oh yes wrinkle. So save your money and instead of having to go under the knife, eat right. Most people fail to understand how their bodies work and do more harm than good. I see people over exercise, under-hydrate, and place the wrong foods into their bodies, all of which in the end creates an imbalance that leads to you name it, premature aging and sickness.
I have been helping clients and patients throughout the years by creating specific programs for their health needs. People think that losing weight is a great thing, and it can be for those who are morbidly obese, but how you lose weight and what kind of weight you are losing is important. When you lose muscle you are shutting down your metabolism and telling your body you are in danger. Toxic chemicals are released and your glands, to include pituitary, adrenal and thyroid are affected, hence you have just created a cycle of madness that will forever haunt you. You become a hormonal nightmare, and will forever be chasing your tail in an attempt to lose weight. Our bodies need to be healthy, and fat is a symptom of an unhealthy reaction created by chemicals, be it stress, the type of foods you consume, and your interaction with the environment.
You are responsible for your health and wellbeing, don't let anyone else tell you otherwise. Every disease, injury, and failure in your body have been created by you. When you have an accident, it was you that chose to be on the road that day, and although it may not have been your fault per say, you were conducting that vehicle and could have prevented the accident if you were a defensive driver, however, if you were too busy daydreaming, texting or took your eyes off the road for a second, an accident occurred. If you twist your ankle, broke a bone in your body, burned yourself, anything that created an injury, it was your doing as well. Being present and well engaged in your activity can lead to a lesser possibility of getting hurt. While exercising, if you paid attention to detail, learning how to interact with the weight, good balance and symmetry of your muscle can prevent injury as well as lifting the appropriate type of weight. As far as getting sick, be it viral, bacterial or cancer, how you eat and how you keep your immune system up to par, can prevent any form of disease. Yes, we are responsible for our health, mental included.
Every year people make New Year's resolutions and fail to keep them, they chase their tail while trying to lose weight. Weight loss is not the goal people, getting your body to have a well balanced metabolism that will remove toxins and intake nutrients, will keep you at your ideal weight without having to give up your first born.
