  1. 1. JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2015 11 Y et another year has passed – yet another reminder of your age, and the passing of time. Let’s be honest – are you really okay with ageing? If your answer is no, then you are definitely not alone, that is, if global anti- ageing product expenditure is anything to go by. According to ‘Global Industry Analysts Inc’, we are set to spend as much as US$290bn globally in 2015 on staying younger longer. What would you say if you could wipe years off your looks, easily and naturally? If you don’t care about looks, then let’s rephrase the question. How would you like to feel younger, have more energy, naturally feel better within yourself, be less bothered by what others think, be hormonally balanced, feel strong, be flexible, enjoy a youthful libido, and, as an added bonus, look younger? “Well... when you put it like that... who wouldn’t?”, you say. We’ve all seen people who look vastly younger than their age, and who enjoy youthful energy and boundless stamina. How do they do it? What ways are there beyond genetic inheritance and lifestyle? It may interest you that scientific research demonstrates that your chronological age does not dictate our biological age (how you actually look, feel and function), which means you can be 50 years old and quite literally have the face, body and health of a 35-year-old. The bad news is that you could just as easily have the face, body and health of someone decades your senior, and when that’s the case, that impacts your energy levels, immunity, hormones, bone density, sex drive, and of course your quality of life and life expectancy. Recently I heard of a young man in his late 30s, diagnosed with recurring deep vein thrombosis, who was told by doctors that he has the legs of an 80-year-old. But, here’s the good news. There is strong evidence that biological ageing can be slowed and reversed at any time. “Really?”, you may say. I assure you that my own experience in holistic health has proven this true to me, and, although it’s not the focus of this article to prove the case, we will look at how to do it. So, what makes some people biologically younger, and others older? And what can we do to change it? Eight fundamental basics for a younger you 1. DIET Our metabolism slows as we age. Eating less, more often, and chewing well are effective and immediate ways to improve digestion without altering what you eat. Chewing well also creates an alkaline state, cancelling out the ageing effects of free radicals. In fact, it’s the cheapest, simplest way to add years to life span. Reduce sugar. Glucose sugar binds to and inhibits DNA, proteins and lipids. Consider the benefits of taking a small range of quality dietary supplements (more below.) 2. BREATHING Most of us don’t breathe as we used to as infants. Retrain yourself to breathe all the way down into your abdomen, while also filling the lungs up towards the shoulders. The golden rule is to do it gently, over time. Chi gong, tai chi or Buteyko may assist . 3. EXERCISE Ditch the long gym slogs and hours of cardio. Research shows that shorter, more intense whole body workouts strengthen immunity, improve bone density, reboot the endocrine system, reignite the metabolism and sharpen the mind. Dr. Jamie Timmons’ research shows that just one minute per day, three times a week of ‘high intensive training’ (HIT), significantly benefits digestion and fat burning ability. Make exercise about fun – it’s not just the exercise which shapes your body – your mindset does too. Mix it up. Incorporate dance. Enjoy yourself. 4. YOGA Yoga is a mindful way to open energy channels in the body so that energy is balanced and free flowing. A flexible body promotes a flexible mind. Yoga actually means ‘communion’ – so when it is practised in a way that opens the practitioner to Universal Consciousness, then the benefits are greatly amplified. 5. MEDITATION AND MINDFULNESS Proven to support ‘telomerase’ production, meditation reduces ‘telomere-shortening’ of DNA material as our cells reproduce – a direct ageing-contributor. Meditation is a form of ‘communion’ with Source, Universal Consciousness, God or Higher Self (whatever you choose to call IT); a state which promotes wonderful health benefits. by Boris von Rechenberg Chronological age does not dictate your biological age. You can be 50 years old and have the face, body and health of a 35-year-old. You could just as easily have the face, body and health of someone decades your senior. How would you like to feel younger, have more energy, naturally feel better within yourself, be less bothered by what others think, be hormonally balanced, feel strong, be flexible, enjoy a youthful libido, and, as an added bonus, look younger?
