If you have come to senior health to look for a specific illness, such as arthritis please look down the buttons and go to that page for remedies and tips.
Then please come back to this page and read! There are 2 gold nuggets of information here about older people's health issues that could transform your whole life.
This is a subject that gets closer and closer to my heart.. as time goes by. I have cared so closely for so many elderly and disabled people that I have masses of FREE information about health and natural medicines to give you!
But first, there are two simple things which can transform the everyday senior health of everyone over sixty.
However - there's a catch! You have to WANT to GET better, to BE better, to have MORE energy, to get back into the stream of life. No matter how old you are. There's the rub!
Its so common for older people to become tired - to give up - because time whizzes by and the body slows down... and you feel as though its all over! Well.. it needn't be!
Getting older often means SITTING DOWN more.. and then its catch 22.. you do less, you want to do less.. you sleep more, you eat more.. the joints can't cope and start to hurt.. its a slippery slope.
But if you could feel better in 48 hours from doing just TWO simple exercises.. wouldn't it be worth trying??
Studies have shown that Senior Health is hugely affected by two BIG factors.
1. One.. not enough oxygen
2. Two...not enough water
3. Sleep... not enough good quality sleep
Can it be that simple? Could breathing more and drinking more water really help you to get back some pizzazz?
I can hear you making all kinds of excuses already!! Ha Ha Listen to yourself!( "oh but if I drink more i have to go to the toilet more".. sure you do, but the other benefits will far outweigh the inconvenience).
Trust me.. for a just a few days. Give these simple exercises a try and your personal senior health will improve.
FIRST - the OXYGEN exercise - I call it your BISTBOR workout and You can do this sitting down watching tv, in the bathroom, at the kitchen sink, lying in bed.. The more often you do it, the better.
Think of a pair of lungs. There are four sections, two on each side. You are going to put some air deeply, but gently, into each of your lung sections, and keep it there for just a few seconds. You will be awakening some areas that have had hardly any air in them for years, because mostly we breath using the top one third of our lung capacity.
Only do this exercise if you DO NOT HAVE any diagnosed lung condition!
Take a deep breath, then take three little breaths in further.. like a little suck, suck, suck. Hold it for a couple of seconds.. and then blow it out, and give the three little blow blow blows.
That's it. Breathe normally for a minute or two and then do it again. You shouldn't feel dizzy or have any pain. (If you feel dizzy don't do it so deeply at first, or hold for more than a couple of seconds.)
Putting more oxygen into your blood will help your cells get robust and healthy again, and improves your ability to MAKE energy. Its as simple as that so.. start by doing this simple 'oxygen exercise' just TEN TIMES A DAY. You'll stop feeling like a senior! You could do them when washing up, when waiting for the microwave to finish cooking, as you sit for a rest in the mall...
Then add five each day as you get comfortable with it. Once you start to feel the benefit..
ADD A STRETCH.. try standing up by a wall or doorway, stretching up.. and then taking a deep breath and hold it, at the same time tensing some of your muscles in your legs and buttocks, arms, chest or neck.
What will be happening is that OXYGEN RICH BLOOD will be rushing to those muscle groups, feeding and nourishing them. You don't have to do anything vigorous, just Breathe In, Stretch, Tense Breathe Out and Relax. BISTBOR
Your mental energy - focus, concentration.. WILL improve
The quality of your sleep WILL improve
The quality of your energy WILL improve
And Just Maybe - your sex drive will improve! That'd be a BONUS!
Also Medications you may be taking will start to work better.
Joy of life WILL improve,
NOW EXERCISE TWO.. Senior health improvement at a glug!
Its just four extra glasses of water each day. Not tea or coffee..
OK, water doesn't taste that good, so you have to have a couple of little treats associated with it.
First.. a really nice glass..something light, something beautiful, something that brings pleasure to the eye when you look at it.
Go to the glass cabinet and choose your most favorite glass and place it on a mat beside the sink. Then, maybe something tasty to put in it like lemon juice or some drops of elderflower cordial. The temperature has to be right too..and TEPID is easier to drink than cold or hot.
Believe me.. YOU KIDNEYS WILL LOVE YOU FOR THIS!
For more info re the biochem, go to the glossary and look at water.
Now add just ONE Alternative medicine remedy - A TISSUE SALT - a day to give those bones and muscles a treat.
Click on the TISSUE SALT button and choose one that fits you best.
Later we will choose a homeopathic medicine for any of your specific chronic illnesses. They work so well.. you will be amazed!
SLEEP: I know, you think you know everything there is to know about sleep. But believe me.. you dont, unless you have read Matthew Walker's book 'Why We Sleep'.
Did you believe that old chestnut that older people need less sleep as they get older? I used to. But it's been proven to be completely wrong. We need as much sleep as anyone else. That is, 8 full hours of good quality sleep. If you are regularly getting less than that - then you are shortening your life and causing a whole heap of problems and weaknesses for the future. Walker says that we are naturally bi-phasic sleepers, so the afternoon nap has now been officially sanctioned. Yay!!
