How to Slow the Aging Process…

If you’re over 50 then you’ve probably had the experience of not being able to do things that you used to be able to do pretty easily… If you are experiencing:

 

  • Low energy levels
  • Lack of motivation to do things.
  • Finding it harder to get a decent night’s sleep
  • Stiffness and niggly aches in the body.
  • Finding you are not as sharp as you used to be.
  • Lack of mental clarity and focus.
  • Finding weight management an issue
  • Finding it hard to maintain a healthy diet

 

It’s called aging, and while there is currently no way to completely avoid aging we can take anti-aging steps to slow it down.

To do this we must understand the 5 causes of premature aging…

 

Free Radical Damage to Cells
Under normal circumstances your body’s natural antioxidants can neutralize harmful free radicals, but system stressors like poor diet, environmental toxins, and emotional stress can tip the scales in the favour of oxidation damage.

 

Immune System Deterioration
As you age your body produces fewer immune cells and does a poor job of quickly getting those cells to the places they’re needed. The result? You get sick more often and it takes you longer to recover.

 

Hormone Imbalance
Hormones are how your brain sends instructions to your organs. Brain cell oxidization and under-nourished, under-performing mitochondria (the powerhouse of your cells) can throw your hormones out of balance.

 

Decreased Organ Function
Almost every organ in your body becomes less efficient as the cells in them age and become oxidised. Once again, under-performing cell mitochondria not receiving the nutrition it needs to function at optimal levels is a major contributor here.

 

Neurological Deterioration
1 in 3 seniors die from Alzheimer’s or another type of neurodegenerative disease.

 

If all of this makes you a little uneasy then I want to tell you one big step you can take on the path to optimal health… GET YOUR NUTRITION RIGHT!

 

 

Making sure you are getting an ample supply of amino acids, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, pre and probiotics and antioxidants (free radical scavengers) is a powerful way to slow down the aging process and revitalize your body.

 

And I am not talking about the cheap nutritional supplements (if that’s what you can call them) off the supermarket and chemist shelves. I am talking about the highest quality, pharmaceutical-grade nutritional supplements.

 

Did you know that there are 3 grades of nutritional supplements for human consumption? Those 3 grades are:

 

Pharmaceutical Grade is the highest quality grade of vitamins and supplements meaning the purity; dissolution and absorption meet the highest regulatory standard verified by an independent party. Pharmaceutical grade vitamins and nutrients may be available without a prescription, but they are typically sold by licensed health care professionals.

 

Medical Grade vitamins and nutrients are also high-grade supplements but may not meet all the standards of pharmaceutical grade supplements. Prenatal vitamins normally fall into this category.

 

Cosmetic or Nutritional Grade supplements are typically sold in health food stores, chemists and, readily available on supermarket shelves. These supplements may not always be tested for absorption, dissolution or purity. Additionally, these supplements do not always have the same concentration of active ingredients as what is listed on the label.

 

Did you know that 98% of supplements readily available in stores are cosmetic grade… the lowest grade safe for human consumption?

 

The Bottom Line: If you are serious about attaining optimal health, you need to source premium, preferably pharmaceutical-grade; nutritional supplements to stop-gap your nutritional deficiencies.

 

If you are looking for powerful nutritional supplements that will support you in:

 

More energy for your day (but not overwhelming… but available if you need it)

  • Mental Clarity & Focus
  • Sleep Sounder & Deeper
  • Joint Support
  • Reduce Aches and Discomforts
  • Supports Gut Health
  • Weight Management
  • No Fasting or Starving
  • Anti-Aging Antioxidants
  • Better Exercising
  • Faster Recover Times
  • Lean Muscle Support

 

You need to be accessing powerful, high-quality, pharmaceutical nutritional supplements… because you deserve to feel the best you can feel. And what makes premium grade nutritional supplements superior? It’s all about the purity and absorption rate… it’s in the science! We recommended Le-vel Thrive Nutritional Supplements because they are premium.

Other powerful steps you can take to slow down the aging process are:

Keep moving… regular exercise, even walking every day and preferably in nature, can make a big difference to your wellbeing.

 

Removing refined hydrolyzed oils like vegetable and soy oils, fast foods, processed packaged foods, refined flours, foods containing gluten (bread, bagels scones, pizza, pasta), and sugary foods and drinks (especially soft drinks and energy drinks). This is not hard to do if you try removing one thing at a time and replacing it with an alternative like organic cold-pressed coconut oil for cooking instead of vegetable or soy oils.

 

Remember to take time out for you… de-stress by taking up meditation, having a relaxation de-stress hypnotherapy session, getting a luxury massage, pouring a long hot bubble bath, reading a book or listening to some relaxing, soothing music.

The Dark Side of Your Emotional Needs – Mind and Body

“The human body experiences a powerful gravitational pull in the direction of hope. That is why the patient’s hopes are the physician’s secret weapon. They are the hidden ingredients in any prescription.” – Norman Cousins

 

Your body matters, and so does your mind, because they’re the same matter. Your emotions directly affect your body, and it goes the other way too. Mental and physical health cannot be disentangled.

 

Each and every one of us has a natural current running through us called the ultradian rhythm. Every 90 to 120 minutes we shift from left-brain dominance to right-brain. The shift takes about 20 minutes, and it usually makes us feel a little entranced or day-dreamy.

 

It’s during this shift that the immune system does its upkeep, the brain incorporates new learning, and the gut digests and absorbs nutrients. It’s little wonder that when we continue to swim against the tides of this natural rhythm we start to feel broken and emotional.

 

Sure, you can refuse to listen to your physical needs for a while, override them for a bit… but do it for long enough and you’ll come to feel depleted on every level.

 

Hypnotizing someone is often a case of just letting the sails catch the breeze of this warm and wonderful natural shift in physical and mental focus.

People increasingly treat themselves as machines. We work through lunch, sleep too little, eat junk on the run, skip the gym, and prop up our flagging bodies with ‘energy drinks’.

 

But neglecting proper nutrition, sleep, rest, and exercise long term leads to psychological problems and stress-induced illness, and not just on the individual level. In unhealthy populations, collective emotions run riot. And that can lead us down some dark paths.

 

With too little exposure to natural light, poor nutrition, and scant exercise we start to feel second-rate… we become weak and sick in mind and body.

 

And what is good for the body is good for the mind. Having a terrible diet (or eating foods your body is intolerant of) can make you feel depressed and anxious. Conversely, physical exercise, even a 30 minute walk is protective against anxiety and a wonderful mood enhancer, especially when done outdoors in nature.

 

It’s a cliché to talk about ‘self-medicating’. But people do. Whether through comfort eating, smoking, alcohol, or barbiturates, or cannabis, it’s a common way to ‘switch off’, forget about the day and absorb oneself in the moment.

 

But self-medication is always accompanied by self-delusion – convincing ourselves, consciously or unconsciously, that the ‘medication’ has few side effects, or that somehow we can cheat the future.

 

Cliché it may be, but ‘self-medication’ is a fine analogy. Indeed, it’s the side effects that are the problem. Side effects that can make it harder for people to meet their actual physical and emotional needs.

 

When we seek in the long term to provide ourselves with energy through coffee instead of rest, to distract ourselves from problems through the oblivion of drugs, or to resort to any form of self-harm rather than actually working to solve our problems, then the attempted ‘solution’ becomes the enemy – not the comforting or encouraging ‘friend’ it might masquerade as.

 

Listen and you will hear…

 

We all need to work at being attuned to our bodies. If we don’t, we can lose the capacity to interpret the signals from our bodies. We need to listen to our bodies – always. What is it you actually need?
