Each one of us starts to age the instant we are born. It is not possible to prevent aging; if you are living, you are aging.

However, numerous things exist which you can carry out to sustain an active and healthy you and to get rid of or at least restrict a lot of elements which lead to aging.

From the time Ponce de Leon went looking for the Fountain of Youth, individuals have been searching for methods to control the process of aging.

Advancements in the Fight against Aging

Wonderful improvements have been made by medical science to keep individuals alive longer by avoiding illnesses and curing them and assisting people to live more joyful lives which are also healthier.

There is a continuous rise in normal life expectancy and a lot of us can anticipate a life which is a lot longer compared to our ancestors. In reality, our bodies were built with the capability of healing themselves so long as you take appropriate care of yourself.

Your body consists of around 100 trillion or 100,000,000,000,000 cells that are living. They use appropriate food to maintain strength and health. All these trillion cells die and are substituted at constant intervals by other cells. Your whole body is practically totally restored every few years; in reality, you are a different person from before!

Body Cells and Anti-Aging

How your cells operate is the answer to anti-aging:

After the death of a cell three possible things must occur:

  1. If appropriate nutrition has not been provided to a cell, its substitute is going to be the cell’s weaker version. In such a case, your body is deteriorating.
  1. The substitute cell might be as strong as its forerunner. In this instance, your body normally stays the same.
  1. The third likelihood is that the new cell is more powerful than the earlier one.

You are currently really renewing the body and overturning the process of aging. This can occur only if you provide your cells with a lot of appropriate food energy to function with.

At times, normally when we are in the late twenties or early thirties, a lot of us begin taking note of those initial signs that we are no longer children; the appearance of a number of gray hairs, facial wrinkles and the beginning of drooping of the skin.

Other signs appear slowly as more time passes; it is a bit difficult to wake up in the morning, our sight and hearing are no longer the same and our sex life is not as energetic as we recall.

As we check around, we see similar things taking place to our family and friends. A lot of us normally embrace what we view as nature’s unavoidable process.

Your Age is Determined by Your Feelings

If you consider yourself growing older and feel this way, you are then! The state of your mind has an impact on the happenings inside your body. In the meantime, you witness your body growing older; therefore, you feel older which strengthens your body’s aging processes. It turns into a cycle which is vicious.

You Can Change Things

As you become aware of your body appearing and feeling younger, there will be improvement in your mindset. This encourages you to go on with your practices for anti-aging which creates a loop for favorable feedback, rather than an unfavorable one. Therefore, this process speeds up.

Today, individuals are living longer because of enhanced medical breakthroughs, raised awareness of how vital a healthy lifestyle is and other elements which are connected.

The body of Humans Can withstand a lot of Mistreatment and Neglect

It is not every time that we consider our bad habits as it might take decades or years for the impacts to show. However, if you neglect yourself for a long time you might one day discover yourself suffering in your old age with a huge range of illnesses and complaints such as trouble with sight, hearing, cancer, brittle bones, heart disease and a lot of other issues.

However, it just takes awareness and a small amount of work to avoid many if not all of these widespread issues connected with age from showing. No quick cure or magic pill is available and some effort will be required on our part. However, the outcomes will be worth it.

To you, how much would it be worth it to derive pleasure in your last years as a grownup who is active, healthy and capable of continuing to carry out a lot of the things you adore most?

    Great article. We are living longer. Now the challenge is to live longer while enjoying a quality of life or longevity can be a curse rather than a blessing. It seems the longer we are able to live the more people abuse their bodies. I for one am trying to benefit from a longer life expectancy and this website helps.

    Unlike expensive cosmetics commercials want you to think, real anti-aging comes from the inside!

    This was an enlightening read. Until now I thought the only Anti-Aging there was is the creams my wife insists on buying. I will be sharing this post with her as soon as I can figure out a way to present it without it being misinterpreted as me suggesting she needs to work on setting the clock back. She is beautiful, but a tad insecure about the passing of years.

    This is a great article I will share with my siblings. I am 63 and the oldest of 6, 3 boys and 3 girls. I am often mistaken for being the youngest and that is not appreciated when it happens. Obviously it’s not genetics, but lifestyle, so I am going to send them a link to this article and say it is my secret. They all abuse their bodies and can not accept that it’s their own faults they look at least a decade older than they are.

    We are living longer in the USA, but I doubt the trend is going to continue. Between low quality food, contaminated water, soil and air, and most people content to be blobs of fat I can see life expectancy decreasing. Sad really, but you can only lead a horse to water. You can not make it drink.

    Reading this and other posts on this fine website has helped me arrive at a revelation. Our bodies and minds are complicated things made up of trillions of large and small pieces that all have to work together. So it boggles my mind that people will maintain and care for their car, which has a few thousand parts, more than they care for their bodies and minds. I, for one, am gonna start taking better care of my body and mind so I can enjoy driving a simple contraption like my car.

      Christian Jacobs. Good point and your’re spot on. I am more faithful with oil changes and maintenance visits to my mechanic than I am having my own body checked out by a doctor and maintaining it properly.

    The part I found most interesting in this post is your “mind over aging” suggestion. People ask me why I look and act much younger than my years when I do nothing to accomplish my youthfulness. I tell them I stopped celebrating birthdays and have not celebrated a New Year since I was in my mid 30s. They laugh, but it is true. I don’t think about aging because I do not mark the passing of time. This was not something I did deliberately, but it seems to validate what you suggest, I do not think of myself as aging so, although I do age, it is at a much slower rate than most people obsessed with the passing of time. I will be researching this more I assure you. Thanks!
