Muscle Support

  1. Muscle restored in seniors with this simple plan

    RESTORE lost muscle effortlessly – even if you’re a little older

    You’ve seen it happen all around you.

    You PRAYED it wouldn’t happen to you.

    And at first, it might’ve seemed like you got away with it: You reached your senior years without that debilitating loss of muscle that hits so many others.

    But then it happened.

    You got weaker. Maybe you’re getting weaker still. And your doctor just shrugs and insists this is part and parcel of the whole aging thing.

    Many people even believe it, too. Why wouldn’t they? Doctor said so!

    Well, friend, I’m here today to say something else.

    You can’t stop the whole aging thing…

    But you certainly CAN stop your muscle loss -- and END the weakness and fatigue that come along with it.

    You can even go in the other direction, too: As you get older… you could grow stronger!

    Stop the “muscle wasting” blamed on age

    New research confirms just what I tell my own patients:

    It ain’t your age!

    Sure, there’s a set of circumstances more likely to happen as you get older that leads to muscle loss.

    You have to work a little harder to keep your muscle.

    And, of course, none of us hit 80 with the strength we had in our 40s.

    But the study confirms the REAL problem isn’t in the number of birthday cakes you’ve had…

    It’s in your genes.

    Scientists say they’ve now identified the genes responsible for muscle loss.

    Even better, they’ve gone a step further…

    They know the specific form of muscle loss that strikes with age – the kind that leads to weakness, falls, disability and in some cases even death.

    Of course, like most in the mainstream, they’re already talking about the usual answer – turning this new discovery into a target for a drug.

    I can only imagine the horrors that’ll unfold next.

    Tweaking genes is often like trying adjust a house of cards… from the bottom… because each one has interactions with the others, often in ways that aren’t always obvious.

    But one wrong tweak and the whole thing comes crashing down.

    Besides, why bother with these Frankenstein experiments when we already have ways to build, preserve, enhance and protect muscle in seniors?

    Start with some exercise. There’s no two ways about it: To keep strong, you need to do some resistance training.

    The good news is you don’t have to go all Schwarzenegger in the gym. Google “chair exercises” for some basic moves you can try at home that’ll do the trick.

    But it’s not just about exercise.

    You also have to FEED your muscles, and that means protein.

    Aim for 25-30 grams of protein at every meal, with most of them animal (aka COMPLETE) proteins including meat, eggs, fish and (if you can handle it) dairy.

    Guys, if you find yourself getting weaker no matter what you do, don’t accept it as aging.

    That could be a sign of a hormone deficiency.

    Have a physician who specializes in integrative or functional medicine check your testosterone levels, and help you get back on track if you’re falling short.

  2. Back pain linked to disability in seniors

    This common pain could lead directly to disability

    If you're locked in an on-again, off-again battle with back pain, you know that things can change on a moment's notice.

    One minute, you're having a GREAT day, able to get out and do the things you love.

    You can stay active... engaged... and healthy.

    The next, things go south. Maybe you feel a pop or a click. Maybe you "slept funny" and wake up sore. Or maybe it just seems to happen out of the blue.

    Whatever the cause, there's no going out now -- and even if you do get outside, that back pain will ensure that you can't enjoy yourself.

    Now, the latest research shows how you're hardly alone.

    Half of all seniors are battling back pain -- and it's not just a little soreness that you can tune out.

    In many cases, it leads to struggles with walking, making it so difficult that many folks end up not going out at all.

    That, in turn, leads to reduced mobility and poorer health, and -- over time -- it could steal some of your independence as you turn to others for help with daily tasks.

    People who walk less also have a higher risk of chronic disease, including heart disease, and death.

    The study shows the problem, but it doesn't point to a solution.

    That's the rub, isn't it? Most docs will tell you that there really ISN'T a solution, beyond gobbling painkillers whenever your back acts up.

    That's not an answer. That's a cop-out that leads to more pain and disability.

    There are real solutions for back pain, but too many docs have no clue where to even begin to look. Most just pass out the pain pills. When the drugs stop working -- and they will -- they'll send you off for surgery.

    Since the surgery doesn't actually address the cause of the pain, many people don't improve.

    Some get worse.

    Don't fall into that rut, because you can beat the pain without meds and without surgery.

    First, look to your habits. Poor posture and low levels of physical activity -- including walking -- can cause or worsen pain. That triggers a downward spiral: Your pain causes your posture to get even worse and makes you walk even less.

    It might seem tough to get moving when you've got pain, but keep at it. Walking and stretching can lead to dramatic improvements in pain levels.

    Second, there are a number of non-drug therapies -- including topical MSM, acupuncture, massage, and osteopathic spinal manipulation -- that can work wonders for the most common forms of back pain.
