We’ve reached a very disturbing point in our existence.
For the first time in centuries, children of today are not expected to live as long as their parents did.
There are many factors that are contributing to this grim fact—overuse of pharmaceuticals, environmental toxins, and unhealthy lifestyle habits are some of the major ones.
But the good news is you can do a LOT to help reverse this trend and support a long, healthy life—for you and your children!
9 Ways to live a longer life
Long life tip #1: Eat real food
Your body was designed to eat real foods—not processed, packaged, chemical-laced garbage that does nothing but add to the food manufacturer’s bottom line and makes you sick and fat.
“Real foods” means fresh vegetables, fruits, dairy, meats, poultry, fish, eggs and healthy fats (like butter, coconut oil and olive oil). These are the foods that are perfect for your body’s needs.
Processed foods, on the other hand, not only do NOT nourish you (don’t be fooled by their flimsy added synthetic nutrients that are nothing but a marketing gimmick), but they also create tremendous amounts of wastes that are difficult for your body to eliminate.
Eventually if enough wastes build up, you become the perfect home for disease to flourish—especially cancer. Cancer loves an acidic body overrun with wastes.
Plus processed foods are notorious for being made with GMO ingredients to boot!
Long life tip #2: Support sound digestion
Your health and life depend on sound digestion!
Digestion determines how well you absorb vital nutrients and eliminate disease-causing wastes…so if yours isn’t going along so good (and judging by how many people use acid reducers and laxatives, that’s likely), it will take its toll on you.
The key to efficient digestion is two-fold—make your meals easier for your body to tackle and provide some enzyme support if needed.
My Great Taste No Pain system can help you with the meal piece. It shows you how to create delicious meals from wholesome, yummy foods that are a snap for your system to digest.
Plus it delivers on the “Great Taste” promise—ALL of the recipes in the plan are positively scrumptious.
Sound digestion also requires adequate enzymes, but many people are running low in this area. This is especially true if you are over 50, have used acid reducers, have had your gallbladder removed or have had gastric surgery (including bypass).
If you feel enzymes may be an issue, Digestizol Max enzyme formula can help pinch-hit and support your body where it is lacking.
Digestizol Max’s complete blend of 15 plant-derived enzymes can help pinch hit where your system may be lacking and pave the way for better, more thorough digestion (and less heartburn too!).
Plus its soothing herbal formula (including ginger and peppermint) can help calm an inflamed GI tract.
Long life tip #3: Drink 8 glasses of water a day
Water keeps you hydrated, cleanses the garbage out of your cells, eases constipation and even helps reduce pain!
Eight 8 oz. glasses a day should be your minimum.
Always choose filtered water—never, ever tap water.
Long life tip #4: Commit to regular exercise
Exercise may be a dirty word to you, but you don’t stand a snowball’s chance in you-know-where of having any measure of health if you don’t exercise.
But if you use your imagination, exercise can be fun and very addicting!
Pick an activity you like or at will at least tolerate. Brisk walking is a good choice and just about anyone can do that.
Make your goals realistic too. Trying to run five miles when you’ve never run farther than 20 feet is not realistic. Start with small goals and build up.
Get an exercise buddy. You’ll be less likely to skip a workout if you have someone counting on you to show up.
Get your doctor’s OK and get moving toward a longer life now.
Long life tip #5: Reduce stress
Nothing will make the grim reaper arrive faster than to be under constant chronic stress.
Stress weakens your immune system, encourages elevated blood glucose levels, impairs your mental functioning, causes you to stress eat (and gain weight) and is a factor in high blood pressure and digestive conditions like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
There are several stress reduction measures such as counseling, meditation, yoga, prayer, exercise and deep breathing.
Many people have also reported that it has helped them to take up a hobby or adopt a pet.
Long life tip #6: Support a healthy gut microbiome
Your friendly gut bacteria helps with digestion but that’s just the beginning.
It also manufactures B vitamins, improves nutrient absorption, enhances your immune system functioning, encourages normal cholesterol levels and blood pressure, supports mental health and even beefs up your metabolism!
To help encourage a healthy gut microbiome, it's important to supplement with a full-spectrum probiotic formula like Super Shield that contains strains from both the Lactobacillus (for the small intestine) and Bifidobacterium (for the colon) species.
Super Shield’s 13 well-studied probiotic strains have been helping to create healthy guts for nearly a decade, and our loyal clients would never be without their Super Shield!
Long life tip #7: Get a good laugh
Laughter is a natural stress-reducer, it helps release endorphins (feel-good chemicals), eases depression, stimulates circulation, lessens pain and it even enhances your immune system functioning!
Take time to laugh each day by watching comedies or reading jokes or funny stories.
Long life tip #8: See a doctor and dentist each year
Many health problems can be caught in early stages by going for regular check-ups, and that also includes dental check-ups.
If you shun the doctor’s office or Ronald Reagan was President last time you went to the dentist, it’s time to make an appointment.
Long life tip #9: Get 7-9 hours of sleep each night
Not getting enough sleep takes its toll on you in numerous ways. It can:
- Lower your immune function
- Trigger chronic pain
- Accelerate the aging process
- Worsen depression
- Encourage overweight and obesity
- And even cause your brain to shrink!
Get going on supporting your better health and longer life now!
To your health,
