What Reverse Aging Can Mean For You
This article will take a look at all those aspects of aging that can actually be prevented if you become successful in Reverse Aging. That means looking at the many conditions that are directly related to the aging process.
These conditions (aging) typically start from middle age and go all the way into your senior years, these age-related issues can stop you from taking part in life to the fullest and none of us want that to happen.
So, apart from the obvious advantage of looking good, a person who can successfully learn how to reverse the aging process will also be spared from many of the debilitating conditions that come with aging.
There are also people who believe in ‘aging gracefully’, thinking of aging as a natural phenomenon and not doing anything about it. But more and more people have now started to realize the importance of freezing their age or at least trying to reverse the aging process. This can be especially important in terms of your ability to lead an independent life without having to rely too much on others. Some of the health benefits of reverse aging can include the following.
Preventing Cognitive Decline
The term cognition refers to the thinking, learning, interpretive and perceptive function of the human brain. With growing age, the cognitive functions of the brain see a decline just like the rest of the body. There are countless cognitive disorders that are linked to age.
The most commonly known ones include dementia, Parkinsonism, and Alzheimer’s disease. While some of these do have a genetic predisposition, others do not. Even those that are linked to genetics can be delayed in their onset or prevented altogether with you working on reversing the aging process.
Just like aging in other parts of the body, the brain is also susceptible to cellular damage, but when you start to take better care of yourself through diet and other lifestyle practices, you can help your brain keep its health intact.
Whether your reverse aging therapy includes supplements, diets or other lifestyle changes all can help in preserving your health at the cellular level. As science has already established, the healthier your cells, the better you age – or even stop aging.
There is a very famous quote by George Burns that says, “You know you’re getting old when you stoop to tie your shoelaces and wonder what else you could do while you’re down there.”
As we grow older, this makes more and more sense to us. And this is not just for the elderly. In fact, even for those in their 30’s or younger, physical work may bring with it back pain and joint pains- a warning sign that aging is well on its way.
You may also start to experience small inconveniences like achy, sore muscles after the slightest bit of physical activity when mobility is no longer smooth and painless. Just think of how often you end up using painkillers every other day or are just too tired to move around for anything.
Reverse Aging can prevent all this. Internally, cellular health does its part while externally you can engage in physical activity suited to your level to keep your muscles and joints mobile. Think yoga, tai chi, or aquatics if you want to take it easy or go for the extra burn by jogging, running, or cycling.
Frailty is the term used for being weak and delicate, and sarcopenia is a medical term that means a loss of skeletal muscle mass. Of all types of muscles, it is the skeletal muscles that can be directly improved by exercise. Reverse aging exercises and physiotherapy can be of great importance in preventing these two conditions. Frailty is seen as a very common issue among the elderly, but it need not be so for you.
By nurturing good lifestyle habits, you may actually be able to sidestep or even reverse frailty. Think reverse aging where even simple practices like walking every day and easy strength training moves can help delay age-related loss of muscle mass.
As far as frailty is concerned, not only does diet and exercise help but keeping the mind active and the attitude positive can be highly beneficial. One research study by John Hopkins regarding frailty revealed that keeping social connections alive along with pursuing to learn may also translate into a lower risk of frailty.
That is also why people who keep themselves engaged mentally and physically are able to sharpen their thinking skills while improving their physical functioning as well.
Preventing Immune System Deterioration
Reverse Aging is simply not possible with a compromised immune system. So, to effectively reverse the aging process you need to keep your immunity in top-notch functioning mode.
As the rest of the body deteriorates with age, the immune system is no different. With time the cellular processes that comprise the immune system get slower, less effective, and less efficient. This is why the probability of contracting a disease and of the disease worsening increases with age, another consideration that factors into age-related decline.
Not only does the body become more susceptible to illness, but it also loses its ability to produce a strong and effective immune response.
Reverse aging would mean a great deal for the immune system as it would keep the system younger. In other words, enabling it to work as effectively as it did at a younger age. This is beneficial for keeping all kinds of illnesses at bay.
Improving Cardiovascular Health
Cardiovascular health includes all things related to the heart and vessels of the body (arteries, capillaries, and veins). As the person gets older, the cardiac muscles of the heart and the muscles in the vessels get weaker. Depending upon various factors, the vessels might get occluded as in atherosclerosis due to over-consumption of fatty foods.
This means that the heart has to pump blood with more force for it to get through to the tissues. The extra load on the heart will contribute to its weakening and reduced ability to function. The vessels also lose their elasticity naturally with age.
Of course, in reversing the aging process, this will not be the case. One of the biggest benefits of reverse aging is that it keeps the heart and vessels safe and healthy. It prevents many diseases, from mild hypertension (high blood pressure) to seriously fatal myocardial infarctions (commonly known as a ‘heart attack’).
After considering what reversing the aging process can prevent, here is a look at what it can promote as well. And this is kind of an important one since it does not have to do with physical wellbeing alone but mental wellbeing as well.
It is given that anyone getting older starts becoming more and more dependent on others. However, this need not be the case. As long as the person is healthy, age is really just a number, and reversing the aging process proves this in many ways.
For someone who is old, but can still move around on their own, do not need someone to babysit them all the time. They need not be sent to an old home for better care if they are able to manage perfectly well on their own.
Reverse Aging can help everyone keep the independence that they had all their lives without having to be monitored and fussed over all the time, and this to me is the greatest benefit of all.
I’m a little confused as to what reverse aging is…how exactly are you planning to reverse the aging process…I get the benefits, but how do you reverse or stop the process.
I might be missing something here…but I’m very curious about how this all works….Any additional info will be appreciated.
Unfortunately it is impossible to go back in time literally, as we all grow older every year, but it is possible to slow down the degenerative process that aging reeks on our bodies.
I have seen some very spritely ninety year olds, they look old, but not quite that old, but they are healthy, active and can still live life to the fullest, as opposed to sitting in a wheel chair at some old age home. That is what reverse aging is all about.
Hope that this helps.
From what I can make of this information, everyone would benefit if our aging process in life could be slowed down to a snail’s pace. Old folks would love for this to take place. Middle-aged men & women would be ecstatic!
Centuries ago Ponce De Leon, credited for discovering the ‘Fountain Of Youth’, was just really an episode in those times that fully never develop. People loved the idea of staying young, (Of course, wouldn’t we all?) We should just try staying ‘young at heart,’ which will always create and bring out ‘young actions’ within us.
Staying young at heart is a great option, but it can always be beneficial in the long run to look after your health too. So many ailments and diseases could be avoided if we all looked after ourselves just a little better in our youth.
Reverse aging can be a very challenging thing to do. But if you know how to do it and follow the regimens every day, it can truly help you to stay, look, and feel young. I’m a prime example of it. I’ve been studying herbs that are beneficial to the human body without any real severe reactions like heavy allergies, blood pressure changes, or stimulating effects.
In doing so, you will reap the benefits. I’m always tricking people with my age. One natural secret to looking young is to restrict calories as much as you can. The others are exercising, take various herbs, eat a healthy diet and do things to keep the mind sharp like reading, writing in any form, or creating things with new ideas.
Sarcopenia as you’ve mentioned is one of the telling signs of aging. I see that in people younger than me. It’s either their posture or their mental behavior. Everything from cognitive improvement, mobility improvement to prevent Sarcopenia, immune system improvement, cardiovascular improvement, and being totally independent can be possible if a person implements the necessary steps to make the change. It’s a lot of work at first, but it will become a habit as you get used to it.
Thank you for your input John. You sound like a real-life inspiration. And you are right, it is just a matter of getting into the right habits and this only takes a few weeks to implement. After that, it will be like brushing your teeth.
What adult does not want to look and feel better? I agree that the right supplements, diet, and lifestyle changes can help to slow cognitive decline. Your suggestion that practicing yoga, tai chi or aquatics can improve my mobility makes good sense. It makes sense to walk regularly and do some strength training, as it can slow down onset frailty.
Clearly, all good suggestions can help in slowing down the aging process.
Hi Michel, Most of us have no clue how to keep the aging process from hitting us hard but the good news is that there are plenty of effortless ways to not only halt the aging process, but turn back time.
I think you can reverse aging or live healthy in your old age if you eat healthy, eat organic foods and drink fresh water, get plenty of sleep and do exercise regularly on daily bases.
There is no way to avoid aging, although we can’t completely avoid the aging process, we sure can slow it down quite a bit.
Thank you so much for sharing great article with us. Much appreciated.
Thank you for stopping by Bushra and glad that you enjoyed the article. Hopefully it gives people some food for thought.
After reading your post, I realize how important it is to reverse the aging process. I am now all for reverse the aging process. I have heard that exercise and cognitive games and help keep the mind and body young.
Not everyone has good genes that prevent them from aging quickly. I have met people in their 80’s that are sharper than people in their 60’s. I feel like if you don’t use it, you lose it.
I believe especially when it comes to independence reversing the aging process will benefit so many people. I certainly hope that reversing the aging process can be made more accessible to everyone.
You are right to say if you don’t use it you lose it. That goes without saying.
