How To Slow The Aging Clock

Aug 17, 2007
Some people age gracefully; they are active and appear to be much younger than their chronological age. Others age more quickly, and may even "die before their time." Aging is inevitable for all of us, but the rate at which we age is variable. It is dependent on how well we cooperate with our bodies.

We can age more slowly and maintain many of our youthful qualities well into our advanced years.

As we renew our health, we can also regain some of the youthful vitality we have lost. This is for those who want to feel vibrant and more youthful in their senior years. It focuses on reversing disease conditions that cause rapid aging, and on maintaining a more youthful body. It is for the dedicated health-seeker, not the dreamer or the wisher.

If you really want a more youthful body, you must be the kind of person who has the desire, faith, vision, self-discipline, determination, perseverance, and financial willingness to rejuvenate your body. This entails a readiness to forego some of your current pleasures in favor of a better prize a few years down the road.

You also have to be prepared to "tough it out" through the cleansing and healing crises that may occur. Rapid aging and disease happen because body tissues become overburdened with acid wastes.

As a result, vital organs and endocrine glands become less efficient; the generation of oxygen and energy in the cells is reduced; free radicals have an increasing capacity to take a toll on the body.

Reversing disease damage, and slowing the rate of aging already underway in the body, requires a detoxification of both body and mind, the restoration of a strong acid medium in the stomach, healthy bile flow, correction of hormone imbalances, achievement of pH balance, minimization of free radical damage, and the maximization of energy production in the mitochondria within cells.

This is easier said than done; it takes time, but it can be achieved. It must become a lifestyle program.

RAW Is the way

When it comes to age reversal, nothing beats a totally raw diet - but it must contain sufficient greens. Green smoothies appear to be the best way to ensure this. It must be noted however, that after years of eating mostly cooked food, it may take the body's digestive system a little time to adjust to a raw food diet.

The following story, told by Michael O'Brien, illustrates the rejuvenating effects of a totally raw food diet beautifully.

The Japanese Army Officer

Perhaps, the best story I could tell illustrates how the human body is capable of responding when it is fed as nature intended it to be.It is able to reverse it's condition to one of youthful vigour and achieve a state of sensitive oneness with its environment.

You might remember the true story about the Japanese army officer, who fought the war in the jungles on one of the Philippine islands for thirty years after World War II, not knowing that it was over. This man was on the Boston show which is like Good Morning America. It was amazing to look at him.

For thirty years, he hadn't brushed his teeth and he had the most beautiful teeth I had ever seen. This was a man who was putting live, active foods into his body. They took him back to Japan and ran him through medical tests because they hadn't seen a man who had lived for thirty years without seeing a doctor.

They put him on a treadmill but couldn't wear him out. He had the ability to return to the homeostasis of a twelve to fifteen year-old boy. It was exciting to see him because he was fifty-nine when he appeared on the show, but looked younger than the age of twenty-nine when he had left Japan to fight in the war.

He had recaptured his youth by living on raw, enzyme-active foods, because he had been afraid to start a fire in case the enemy found him. He was on a wholesome diet for so long that he became hypersensitive to his environment. He knew when people were coming, and could hide. He knew exactly where they were. His innate intelligence became predominant in his life.

It takes Dedication

Restoring some of the youth you have lost, or retaining it, takes dedication, perseverance, and hard work! The older you are when you start, the longer it will take, and the more difficult it could be. But it can be done.

When physical difficulties and disease symptoms begin to leave, it is a very gratifying feeling. As health returns, benefits such as energy, strength, stamina, clear thinking, better sleep, sexual capability and desire, plus a general feeling of optimism about life, start to increase. Health can be yours. You can feel and look younger. You now have the knowledge; the rest is up to you.

Go for it! You deserve it! A couple of years from now you'll be glad you did. I am, and am still working at it. It feels so good to have energy and enthusiasm, and to be free from the degenerating physical conditions that one has suffered with for many years.

After all, consider the alternative of just continuing to slide and ending up in a medical institution or care home where your freedom is gone, where others make the decisions about what goes into your body, and what you are allowed to do.

Just make a decision and stick with your program. Good health is there for you. Go out and get it!
