Help Your Body Age Gracefully

Posted on Updated on


“Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art.”
–Eleanor Roosevelt

Gold turns to Silver, Dark becomes Light…

Time shapes us…Here are some tips on how to age gracefully.

Feed your Body Well

  • Enjoy Your Food—what we tell our body becomes reality.
  • Learn to love Produce. Colorful fruits and vegetables provides many phytonutrients including anti-oxidants that help your body decrease inflammation which ages it rapidly.
  • Get adequate protein for your lean body mass. Protein is lost as you age. Amino acids are the building blocks for all life—your muscles, bones, and organs, your hormones, neurotransmitters, and immune factors, and especially all the enzymes that catalyze every bodily function. And essential amino acids come from protein!
  • Eat healthy fats. Especially omega 3 fatty fish. Olive oil, nut oils, coconut oil, flax and hemp seed oils, avocados provide good fats for healthy cell function and adequate hormone production.
  • Drink red wine. One of the most powerful antioxidants, this super anti-aging food is enjoyed by theMediterranean people who have some of the best ratings of health and longevity in the world.
  • Eat only whole grains—go sparingly on the refined grains and flours and especially processed foods which are stripped of nutrients.
  • Cleanse your body with Vegies—Stop fasting and start fueling your metabolism.

Exercise your Body Joyfully

  • Exercise at least 3-5 times per week. Aerobic exercise (activity that makes you breathe hard) can slow the aging process by stimulating mitochondrial growth and activity. At the cellular level, age is a process of declining energy production. And energy comes form abundant, healthy functioning mitochondria.
  • Be active all day to avoid the “sitting disease”. Sitting more than a couple of hours a day is associated with diabetes, heart disease, poor sleep, and cognitive decline.
  • Grow a Garden. Gardening is a physical activity that provides exercise, connection with the earth and home grown produce!
  • Walk everywhere you can. Depend less on motorized transportation and more on the perfect vehicle of your body.
  • Carry your own stuff. Upper body strength can be built and maintained as you age by continuing your daily activities.

Take care of your Brain

  • Play games. Cards and other memory games can increase memory and attention.
  • Engage with other people. Regular social interaction especially with people of different ages stimulates your brain.
  • Take a class. Learning a new skill increases attention, memory, and problem solving abilities.
  • Mind over Matter. If you believe you will age poorly, your body will manifest age-related decline.

Supplement Wisely

  • Antioxidants to help your cells clean house.
  • Omega 3’s to protect against inflammation.
  • Digestive aides to help assimilate nutrients form the foods you eat.
  • Probiotics to keep your gut healthy.
  • Super greens to provide your body with extra phytonutrients.
  • Amino acids to provide the building blocks for healthy brain function and rebuild tissues.
  • Plant based vitamins and minerals that are activated and easily absorbed.

And to help you simplify your supplement regime, I created Genesis Gold® which has all the anti-aging micronutrients to help you age more gracefully.

Evolving Humans

Posted on Updated on

From Living Fast and Dying Young, to Living Slow and Dying Old

Will our grandchildren be an entirely different type of human being? Evolutionary anthropologist Cadell Last has a theory that humans are undergoing an evolutionary transition that is being driven by our culture. Rather than biological evolution that caused physical changes in our evolving species over millions of years, Last believes that cultural evolution is changing the human species in a matter of decades.

What we focus our attention on, what we do changes our DNA. We are becoming a new type of human being. Cadell Last explains that, “Humans are naturally interested in music, movies, mathematics, and science and all of these things. So we’re just entering a world where we can own our own cultural reproduction, and we can engage in this for an entire lifetime.” Read the rest of this entry »

Working with the Mind-Body Connection

Posted on Updated on

We have heard much of the Mind-Body connection. How thought creates reality. I believe the connection is deeper. That the body is the perfect vehicle for the soul in this earthly dimension. It is through the dense, sensual physical body that the soul learns profound lessons and experiences precious gifts.

Within the temple of the body exists all the knowledge needed for the soul to complete its journey here on earth. The vital information lies deep within each cell, in the genetic blueprint—the DNA. Encoded for optimal existence, our DNA resonates with the earth, with the plants and the animals. And our DNA resonates with others through the experience of Emotion. Emotion is the path to the soul, the body is the garden in which the path takes form. Read the rest of this entry »

Educate not Medicate – The Solution to Polypharmacy

Posted on Updated on

My husband’s grandmother stayed with us. At 89 years old, Gran was on a lot of medicines. Many of which, she no longer needed, but as she said, “The doctors never take anything away, only add more.” Plus all her dietary supplements… a total of 23 pills.

Gran is the typical geriatric patient. Being treated with drugs for every complaint. Let’s count them! Read the rest of this entry »

Tap into your Genetic Potential

Posted on

So you think you’re stuck with what you’re born with? Not so.

Our genetic potential has barely been tapped. Most of us only use about 30% of our DNA. What do I mean by that? Well, when scientists finally decoded DNA in 2000 they found that less than one third of our genetic material was being expressed. The rest they called junk. We have since found out that the rest of the “unexpressed DNA” is not junk.

Think of holiday lights taken out of storage. A tangled mess you plug in and only 1/3 of the lights are on. Now with a little work, you can disentangle the lights and figure out which bulb needs tightening or replaced and viola, they all work. Well, same with our DNA. The secret is how to tap into to our highest potential. Read the rest of this entry »

Tips to Live Longer

Posted on

I recently got tagged on Facebook after one of my friends read an article called Secrets From The Island Where People Forget To Die.

My friend said, “Thought of you, Deborah, when I read this article. Sounds like your words of wisdom.”

Well, the island is Ikaria in the north Aegean Sea. The people there live well into their eight, ninth, and tenth decades. Yes, it is common to see one hundred year old Greeks in the market, gardening, enjoying life. In fact, heart disease, cancer, diabetes are rarely heard of on this island. So how is it that these people rarely suffer from the same illnesses that shorten the lives of the rest of us.

In her her new cookbook Ikaria: Lessons on Food, Life, and Longevity from the Greek Island Where People Forget to Die, Diane Kochilas sums up as six things which I totally agree with. Read the rest of this entry »

Amino Acids to Balance the Brain

Posted on

Can you balance your brain with nutrition? Well, science says yes. Our brains need specific nutrients for proper functioning. And malfunctioning brains need more.

At the center of the brain lies the maestro—the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus orchestrates the symphony of hormones produced by the neuro-immune-endocrine system. These “hormones” control all of your body’s functioning—digestion, detoxification, growth, repair, sleep, sex drive, reproduction, stress response, metabolism, body composition, immunity, healing, cognition, learning and memory.

The hypothalamus also controls the amino acids that the rest of the brain uses to function. And most people do not get the proper nutrition to supply the brain with what it needs for optimal function. That’s one of the reasons antidepressants, anti-anxiety and memory enhancing drugs are so commonly prescribed today.

Many depressed, anxious, learning disabled and stressed patients are best served by healing their hypothalamus.

Hormones from Birth to Death

In this brief video we learn the roller coaster of hormones, and what happens when the ride starts to slow down!

How Hormones Control Everything

Posted on Updated on

 



In this introduction to the power of hormones, we first learn how east meets west in Deborah’s DMAR pyramid of health. But then we see how powerful hormones are, you just need to understand where they fit in.

The Nuero-immune-endocrine system, mentioned at the top of the pyramid, describes your full set of hormones – all controlled by the hypothalamus! But what is it?

It’s a long word so let’s break it down. The nuero part has to do with your brain. (IE the stuff Nueroscience explores) There are lots of hormones that influence your brain, and even how you think! Are you hungry? Maybe your leptin is at play.

The immune system we are all too familiar with, but did you know part of its system involves hormones? The adrenal glands have their say, which is why you often get sick when you’re stressed!

And last but certainly not least is the endocrine system itself. The word might not be as familiar as the first two, but the endocrine system produces all the famous hormones, like the ones related to sex steroids, mood, metabolism, and sleep. If you’ve heard of melatonin you have heard of one of the products of the endocrine system.

If you have already watched the video it’s worth another glance to understand how huge our hormones are.

We have so many different kinds of hormones at work, dancing with your DNA for your health!

How an accident taught me how to heal myself

Posted on Updated on

A heavily laden fog dripped down my mare’s legs as she pranced excitedly beneath me one unusually damp Friday morning in late September. Holding the slick reins in check, I hesitated at the crest of the trail. As the steep wet asphalt lay disturbingly before us, a premonition caught my breath. I saw my mare fall trapping me underneath her. Well aware that thought creates reality, I tried to clear my mind and rode on.

Not fifty yards later, my mare spooked and in an effort to stop her from bolting, I turned her up the sharp grade. She slipped and, as if rehearsed, I vaulted off her back. Thankfully not pinned under a thousand pounds of terrified horse, I managed to save my skull from what would have been a concussive blow, landing instead…on my mouth. Scrambling to my feet, I ran after her, touching my bloodied lip to extract my front teeth.

Thanks to a kind gardener/caballero, I caught my runaway horse and made it home first tending to her wounds, my teeth in my pocket. Typical of most healers, I am reluctant to ask for help, but my husband perceived my unspoken distress and jumped out of bed having worked the graveyard shift to drive me to the emergency dentist.

The dentist shook his head when I handed him the cup of milk in which my broken teeth floated. “I cannot replace these…”

Patting his arm, I encouraged him, “I know you can do it. Please, you must believe in your ability.” Read the rest of this entry »
