Perhaps the title of this page is a trifle
ambitious, however by applying some rules one can achieve much.
These can negate some of the worst depredations of the ageing process.
Firstly avoid overconsumption,
by this I mean do not eat or drink more than is essential
for one's needs; eat lightly and frequently. As one gets older the
kidneys and other eliminative processes deteriorate and if ageing is
about anything it is about accumulating rubbish inside and outside of
the cells of the body. check out www.thetipsbank.com/detox.htm
oneself to internal and external damage. Avoid dodgy additives,
x-rays, microwaves, toxic medication, junk food, tobacco,
antiperspirant sprays, alcohol, irregular sleep and rest patterns, all
forms of unnecessary stress and exposure to infection (warning, the
adjuvant in vaccinations can be ageing). Asbestos is already the second cause of death after smoking and ahead of road deaths in some European countries and is likely to take the same position in the US. So when doing DIY or working in old buildings use a dust mask that will be effective for very fine particles.
Keep your brain healthy.
Cumulative poisons such as lead, mercury and aluminium should be avoided,
especially aluminium since living brain tissue will incorporate much
of what gets past the kidneys and through the blood brain barrier, this
is even more true of the ageing brain and once inside your head, the
evil stuff is very reluctant to leave. There is no point in living
to be a hundred and if you if you have porridge rather than brain inside
your head. In the United States and some of the developed countries
Alzheimer's Disease is reaching epidemic proportions.
I have come across several
common characteristics of centenarians. Some were valid but are no
longer true, for example, farm workers figured prominently among the
centenarians but no longer do so. Two individuals that I investigated
were accustomed to a small amount of spirits usually taken in the
morning with honey and water. Another common factor is that many
had minimised contact with the medical profession preferring to be their own
doctor. It is worth noting that Luigi Cornaro consumed large quantities
of grape juice and it is a fact that red grapes contain a substance that
protects the telomeres, and thus the genetic material. Many centenarians
have live in volcanic
regions where there are high concentrations of sulphur compounds in the
local water supply and the soil. Many eat eggs and two that I have
encountered have had a daily yolk only. (many health experts warn
against eggs as they are rich in Cholesterol.
The other day I read an small article newspaper article suggesting that the way to get beyond a hundred was to spend ten hours a day in bed. I have also read that the opyimum sleep is seven and a half to eight hours, so more work needs to be done on this aspect.
Drink Heavy Water; water that is made with Deuterium rather than the basic isotope of hydrogen. Some experts believe that the aging process can be slowed down by this process. One would have to be pretty rich to be able to afford it and it would raise some eyebrows back at the Department of Home Security
On this website you can
read an interesting account of how an individual, Luigi Cornaro extended
his life, which, at the time was unpleasant and plagued by ill
health. He lived a long, productive and satisfying life by
following a plan similar to the one described above. Don't take my
word for it, read on, you should never regret reading, and more
importantly taking his advice.
Luigi Cornaro was an
aristocratic Venetian who lived in the 16th Century. He studied longevity and his
ideas are as relevant today as the were then. Unlike many of
today's "Gurus" and experts he practiced what he preached. Proof
of his success is the fact that despite having poor health in his early
life, he lived over one hundred years.
I have reproduced some of his book
on the following six pages. This book is out of copyright so you can
transfer it page by page to your hard drive for more leisurely reading.

Disclaimer:- I am not
really making the claim that I can offer eternal life, if, despite
taking my advice you expire I suggest that you get in touch through some
spirit medium, telepathy or whatever and I will see what compensation
can be arranged. If you do find that you live forever then please pass
on details of the plan and send some money. ;o)
