Why Put Old on Hold?

Written by Barbara Morris

More than once it’s been suggested that my efforts to Put Old on Hold are frivolous, vain and ultimately futile. “Why spend all that money on vitamins, supplements and anti-aging therapies – everybody gets old sooner or later. Just let nature take its course”

While it is undeniable thatrepparttar aging process cannot be stopped, “getting old” – which means exhibiting traditional signs, symptoms and behaviors usually associated with advancing years is definitely controllable.

Most anyone able to envisionrepparttar 151032 benefits of a youthful healthy old age and haverepparttar 151033 will to make a commitment can do it. It takes having an understanding that old age is not a TV mini-series over in 5 nights, but a long running show that may last longer than expected.

Not only is “old age” a long running show, it’s not prime time if there are daily re-runs of pain, depression and debilitation.

Putting Old on Hold means being free of chronic pain, mental and physical deterioration. It means being able to enjoy at an advanced age an incredible level of wellness conventional wisdom says is only forrepparttar 151034 young.

Congenital Heart Disease - A Conundrum

Written by Daniel Morris

To reduce your chances of heart disease, you can eat a low fat diet high in Omega 3, take regular exercise, lose weight and do all those other thingsrepparttar doctors tell us BUT…..

Consider my family….

Paternal Grandfather – first heart attack in his fifties, eventually died of a stroke atrepparttar 151031 unripe age of 67.

Maternal Grandfather – first heart attack in his forties and died of a heart attack again aged 67.

Father – died very suddenly atrepparttar 151032 tender age of 65 – you guessed it - from a massive heart attack having never shown any sign of heart trouble until that point.

Mother – suffered from acute angina since her late forties. She is now 60 and takes a cocktail of drugs daily to controlrepparttar 151033 symptoms

Maternal Uncle – suffered a heart attack atrepparttar 151034 age of forty and has been effectively disabled ever since.

Nothing I can do about any of these factors and yet hereditary factors are thought to play a significant part inrepparttar 151035 development ofrepparttar 151036 disease. Afterrepparttar 151037 death of my father in 2002, I really began to question my lifestyle and turned into a health obsessed freak. The stress of this took my blood pressure to 140 over 90 and I was doing more harm to my body than good. I had to re-examinerepparttar 151038 whole situation.

The big question is this: should I eat ultra sensibly, exercise rigorously, cut outrepparttar 151039 alcohol (fortunately I have not smoked for nearly 8 years) and eat my way through a forest of plant sterols and generally be miserable, or bow torepparttar 151040 inevitable and enjoy whatever time I have left before my heart packs in?
