Has the ‘fountain of youth’ just been discovered?
Happy Labor Day!
The summer is winding down, autumn is coming, and in just a few short weeks, you’ll be stocking up on Halloween candy.
But you don’t have to worry about any of that today. Today is the perfect chance to kick back, unwind, and enjoy the good weather while it’s still here -- and there’s no better way to celebrate the “fruits of your labor” than that!
New research reveals what just may be the key to keeping “young” even as you grow old, and it’s a whole lot simpler than you might think.
It’s not a drug. It’s not a diet. It’s not even some exotic new supplement just hitting the market.
No, this key to longevity is in two things that you have power over, even if it sometimes feels like you don’t.
The first one might come as a complete surprise, since it’s not something most folks typically link to health: control.
How much control do you feel like you have over your day and over your life? Maybe not as much as you’d like.
You always imagined that your golden years would be spent enjoying your hobbies… kicking back on a beach… or traveling the world.
Instead, your days might be built around endless errands, constant medical appointments, and bill after bill after bill.
If you’ve ever felt that way yourself, it’s time to stick your elbows out a little and reclaim your life, as the first new study finds that the more control you have, the “younger” you’ll feel.
Looking for a place to start?
I’ve got just the ticket: Commit to a daily walk. Go where you want… WHEN you want… and make sure that everyone else has to plan around you, not the other way around.
It’s not only a great way to reclaim your own time. It’s also the OTHER way to feel young!
A second new study finds that keeping active is the other key to staying youthful no matter what the calendar says.
Seniors were given step counters and told to boost their activity levels if they could.
The folks who didn’t – or didn’t do it much – felt every bit their age and then some.
But those who increased their daily activity reported a younger “subjective” age – or how old you feel – after just five weeks of regular strolling.
On some level, this might seem silly. What should it matter if you “feel” young?
But it does matter. Quite a bit, in fact.
Seniors who feel younger consistently report a better overall quality of life. Just as importantly, feeling younger can help you avoid or prevent chronic disease.
That daily walk will also help you stay young in another way – one that can literally be measured. The vitamin D your body generates from sun exposure can actually SLOW aging deep inside your DNA, according to a study last year.
And it starts with a walk.
Now, find a good pair of sneakers, get moving, and don’t let anyone stand in your way.
This is YOUR time now. Use it.
Here's why your fracture risk is getting worse
It's like trying to figure out where the rain's coming from... and looking in every direction but UP.
The mainstream claims that it's absolutely STUMPED by stunning new numbers on bone breaks in older women.
Despite new and powerful drugs... and despite more docs putting more focus on bone health... the number of breaks and fractures in recent years hasn't dropped.
Just the opposite has happened.
While those numbers started to dip downward a decade ago, they're now actually INCREASING!
The new study finds that from 2002 until 2012, the number of bone breaks and fractures steadily dropped.
But from 2012, something unusual happened.
The number of breaks began to CLIMB.
Between 2014 and 2015 alone, the break rate jumped by 2.5 percent in women in their mid- to late- 60s and by nearly 4 percent in women ages 70 to 74.
The mainstream claims they can't figure it out.
Maybe it's the patients' faults (they love blaming patients) for not taking more bone drugs.
Maybe it's the doctors' faults for not doing enough bone scans to figure out who's at risk... then putting those women on drugs (always back to the drugs).
They're looking in every direction but up!
Let me give you my own theory: Those bone drugs simply aren't all they're cracked up to be.
In 2002, the first year of the study, there weren't too many of those meds out there.
But starting in 2005, the FDA went through an approval frenzy, signing off on a series of drugs that got wildly popular over the following years.
By 2008, the first big bone drug from the 90s -- Fosamax -- went generic, so the market went from few (and expensive) choices in 2002 to a whole slew of choices, including cheap generics, by 2008.
More women were on the drugs than ever before.
Given that fractures are a long-term risk, it would take a few years to see any widespread benefit in the statistics that we could credit to the drugs.
But a few years later, look at what happened.
This isn't just a theory. Even the FDA has been forced to admit that the long-term use of these drugs can actually break the very bones they're supposed to save.
The mainstream has claimed that this risk is rare.
The new numbers tell me that it's NOT as rare as mainstream docs want you to believe!
Bone drugs also hurt in another very real way. Women think they're protected and stop focusing on the basic nutrients needed to maintain strong bone.
Doctors are calling for more drugs. I say that it's time to call for more of those basics, and not just calcium. Good bone health also requires vitamin D, vitamin K, and magnesium, along with hormone balance and weight-bearing exercises.
Slash your risk of frailty in half You don't know exactly when it happened, but you know that it happened.
