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.

The Male Brain and Hormones

Posted on

Is Male Behavior affected by Hormones?

Of course! Any woman knows that. Men are as affected by their hormones as we women are affected by ours. Yet it takes a study from Cambridge University to prove to the world of powerful men that indeed, their behavior is affected by hormones.

What’s most interesting is that this recent study looked at not male athletic or sexual performance, but how testosterone levels affect financial decisions.

In today’s world where the alpha male is not judged as much by his brawn but by his brains (or at least his ability to make money), these findings are quite significant. The study found that the higher the morning levels of testosterone were, the more money made that day. Read the rest of this entry »

How Hormones Affect Your Brain

Posted on Updated on

Excerpt from The Survival Guide for the Hormonally Challenged Woman

Just hang out with a woman about a couple of days before her menses and witness the power of hormones. As her sex steroids plummet so does her demeanor. Not all women suffer from PMS but most will admit to feeling different, less tolerant, more emotional than the rest of the month.

Not just female hormones, but male hormones affect the brain. Believe me, I see many middle aged men prescribed antidepressants or anti-anxiety drugs when in fact their moods are related to declining testosterone. Both the male and female brain is affected by hormones. Read the rest of this entry »

Tapping into your Genetic Potential

Posted on Updated 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 »

Is Your Brain in a Fog? – Check Your Hormones

Posted on Updated on

If you ever “lost” something you just put down or entered a room and forgot why you went, you have experienced mental fog. It’s common when the sex steroids—specifically estrogen—decline, whether briefly in the premenstrual period or permanently at menopause or andropause (the male equivalence).

The link between brain function and hormones is well established. Elevated prolactin levels are associated with bipolar depression, schizophrenia, and mood disorders. Prolactin is naturally elevated in pregnant and lactating women – its name is derived from promoting lactation. In the rest of us, prolactin is naturally high at night providing the necessary anesthetic effect for our immune system to function properly. Prolactin blocks the receptor sites for steroid hormones making the brain impermeable to estrogen. Without estrogen, thought is impaired, serotonin levels drop, sleep becomes disturbed.

Hormones are not just a female phenomena. Low testosterone has also been implicated in mood disorders. Many of my male patients come in with prescriptions for anti-anxiety drugs or anti-depressants. No one checked their hormones. Many are suffering the effects of low testosterone production. With testosterone replacement or supplementation to encourage their own production, these men are much happier.

Gold star

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish this had been available years ago

By Dolly Arons on April 2, 2016

This book is packed full of useful information for both men and women. When you read the title, don’t think just sex hormones–estrogen, progesterone, testosterone.

The author is talking about the endocrine system, the immune system, and how the cells in our body interact. Think in terms of the neuro-immune-endocrine system.

This book is easy to read and understand so that we can start on the road to understanding the foundation of why we feel the way we do.

My deepest appreciation for everyone who posted a review.

 

Please share Hormones in Harmony® with your friends and loved ones so that they might enjoy optimal health too.

 
May your Hormones be in Harmony,
