When movie stars and famous people are stressed out, they head for expensive spas to get pampered, nourished and refreshed. If your budget is more inclined towards a run in the park and a smoothie as a way to refresh, then you have to take charge of your own wellness. And really, that’s the best approach anyway!

Don’t wait until your body is signaling for help with aches, pains, wrinkles or stress. Real anti-aging is proactive and starts well before the first signs of aging appear. Most of what you need to look and feel great at any age is in the health food store – or your own kitchen!

Green Tea is calming and delicious, but it also has so many curative properties that it’s practically a health care center in a tiny tea bag. Green tea has been shown in some studies to reduce the risk of breast cancer, colon cancer and gastrointestinal cancer.

It’s also calming if you have Crohn’s disease or Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Green tea is also shown to be effective in protecting against heart disease and improving mental alertness. Drink one or two cups of green tea daily for maximum benefits.

Ginger is an old fashioned remedy for motion sickness that’s usually taken in a capsule form. Recent studies show that ginger or ginger extract can help calm irritable bowel syndrome, morning sickness, nausea and migraine headaches.

Cranberry juice is another home remedy for urinary tract infections. Drinking cranberry juice regularly helps keep away painful infections and protects against Type II Diabetes.

Tumeric is a seasoning found among the spices. Not only is this flavorful for cooking but it’s also shown to have a positive effect on Rheumatiod Arthritis, bursitis, osteoarthritis and lower back pain.

Olive Oil is useful in cooking and salad dressings, but the little olive is more powerful than you know. Olive oil or olive extract combats fungus and yeast infections, bacterial infections and the pesky bugs that bring on colds.

These are easy to incorporate into your menu plans for maximum effect. It can be as simple as adding more tumeric in your cooking or choosing to relax with a cup of Green Tea instead of a soda. Get some books at the health food store or local library and see if you can find five more natural elements to add to your anti-aging natural arsenal today!

So far as anyone knows, there is no magic pill to keep your youth intact forever – but there is a lot of hype out there about how taking a pill will restore your energy, build your muscles and help you lose weight.

Don’t believe the hype. All you’ll get for your money and time is the possibility of developing a real health problem.

But while there isn’t a single remedy to reverse the effects of aging, there are ways to help keep the aging process at bay and improve your health and lifestyle. If you’re hoping to turn back the clock, talk to your doctor and do some research yourself before taking a pill or drug that’s said to be a sure-fire way to regain your youth.

The Evidence is In On Anti-Aging Therapies

While there’s no tried and true method of warding off the aging process, there are proven therapies that can preserve your general health and extend your life expectancy. Below are some therapies that you may want to check out:

• Hormone Therapy – Hormones are natural chemicals produced in your body. As you age, hormonal levels decline and the aging process becomes more pronounced. Restoring those levels with therapies such as DHEA and HGH (Human Growth Hormone) may slow aging, boost immunity and improve cognition capability.

But hormone therapy can come with its own set of problems, such as liver damage. Check with your doctor before you begin any type of hormone therapy.

• Antioxidants – “Free radicals” (the substance your body produces as it process the food you eat) can be one cause of aging and diseases. Antioxidants such as the vitamins and minerals contained in the food you eat can neutralize these free radicals and prevent diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

If you aren’t eating a balanced diet, you might benefit from vitamin supplements such as Vitamin B6, C, E and A.

• Restrict Your Caloric Intake – Recent studies have found that reducing the number of calories in your diet can help you live a longer, healthier life. But you must be sure that you’re getting enough nutrients such as those found in fruits and vegetables.

There are many factors involved in the aging process – and what may be effective for one, might not be healthy for another. Be sure and talk to your doctor before you begin any type of therapeutic remedy.
