How to Slow Down Aging?
A well balanced diet
Your diet should include fresh fruits and vegetables, seeds and nuts, whole grains and protein (wild salmon). Less animal products (dairy products and red meat) and more kale, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, seeds, nuts, and whole fruits like berries, papaya, Macau, pineapple and mango. Avoid processed foods and sugary drinks which contain artificial colors and sweeteners, flavors and caffeine that can damage cells of the body.
Include herbs and spices in your diet
Herbs such as garlic, onions, astragalus and echinacea can help strengthen the immune system. Many diseases are caused by inflammation of various organs in the body. Sweet root for example, is anti – inflammatory and anti – allergen. Consume green tea which is a powerful antioxidant and anti – carcinogenic. The herb Wild Yam (Dioscorea villosa) is rich with steroids that reduces fat and rejuvenates. Ginseng and blueberries improve brain function, protect the eyes, increase circulation and improve the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the cells of the body.
Increase consumption of micronutrients and reduce daily calories
Foods that are high in antioxidants, bioflavonoids, phytochemicals and micronutrients slow the aging process and reduce the accumulation of free radicals in the body. The products of animal origin and processed foods containing GMOs, antibiotics, hormones, fructose syrup, genetically modified soy, artificial color and flavor, chemicals, pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers increase the accumulation of free radicals and accelerate aging. Reduce salt and sugar; Avoid large amounts of caffeine, red meat and white bread, white sugar, white flour and white rice.
Drink pure, filtered water
At least two thirds of the body contains water. Drinking water should clean the body of toxins and chemicals and help in weight loss. People who do not drink water are often dehydrated. Symptoms of dehydration are headache, fatigue, cracked lips, dry overall discomfort and respiratory tract.
Detoxification and cleansing of the body
Cleaning your body is important for the disposal of free radicals, toxins and heavy metals. Drink plenty of water. Lemon is one of the most effective means of dealing with toxins from your body. Simply let the lemon become your everyday life: a glass of water, a freshly squeezed organic lemon and a tablespoon of organic maple syrup. Drink lemonade several times a day, for 10 days to clean your colon. Consume green drinks full of fiber and drink it at least once a week. Eat extra fiber through fresh fruits and vegetables, oats, bran and whole grain grainy every day. Cleaning the colon is one of the most effective ways of preventing colorectal cancer.
Regular exercise slows down the aging process by increasing the oxygen and nutrients are delivered to various organs in the body. The physical activity can overcome some health problems as cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, diabetes and arthritis. The best sport for arthritis is considered swimming, because it does not stresses the joints a lot. Exercise also helps to release endorphins in depression, anxiety and obesity.
Without cigarettes, alcohol and sugary drinks
If you smoke you put yourself and those around you at risk of many harmful chemicals. Limit alcohol consumption, but a glass of red wine occasionally is good for the heart. Avoid all types of light or energy drinks that contain high fructose corn syrup, which can damage the cells in the body.
Reduce stress and sleep enough
Practice relaxation techniques and sleep 6 – 8 hours regularly. Avoid eating before going to bed to have a better quality of sleep.
