You can lengthen your health span. Yes, as a matter of fact you can!! Do you believe it?
I believe it!
I am reading a book called BIOMARKERS. It explains that with their program you can lengthen your health span. It makes perfect sense!
We know that our blood cells (120 days), and our bone cells ( 7 years) and most all other cells in our body are replaced over time.
So if that is true, then we should be able to make ourselves healthier doing the right types of things with ourselves! Wouldn’t you think?
The 10 “Biomarkers” for this program are as follows
1. Your Muscle Mass
2. Your Strength
3. Your Basal Metabolic Rate
4. Your Body Fat Percentage
5. Your Aerobic Capacity
6. Your Body’s Blood-Sugar Tolerance
7. Your Cholesterol/HDL Ratio
8. Your Blood Pressure
9. Your Bone Density
10. Your Body’s Ability to Regulate Its Internal Temperature
Given this list, it is exciting to see what is available to STAY YOUNG!! For me, it makes big sense.. If we exercise properly and use a program regularly we can indeed make great changes to our bodies. IF we are willing to do what it takes… Many people think that aging “is what just happens and we don’t have any control over it”. NO matter what..
Many people see health through the prism of appearance and vanity. Many have little concept of what real fitness or physical well-being are all about. Do you believe you can slow down how old you are?? (that isn’t just the age you have cause your birth certificate says you are that old!)
There definitely are things that happen with age that will be indicators that we are getting older. BUT we don’t have to take it sitting down. (so to speak!!)
If you knew how to help yourself age less quickly would you be willing to participate in that which helped you? How much do you think you would be willing to do?
I really believe that our body’s decline is due to combined effects of inactivity, poor nutrition and illness (much of which can be controlled).
What’s your take on the matter? Do you believe that you can lengthen your health span?
PS. I will go into the specific ‘Biomarkers” in the next few posts, to give you some more insight into what you can do for your ‘future’ aging!
