Geriatric care

Geriatric care and self-help:

Caring for yourself in the youth of old age means more than just cleaning the teeth and dentures, going for a walk and eating a cooked meal once a day.

It means ensuring that your body has an adequate intake of vitamins and minerals  and in the correct balance

All the right muscle groups are exercised regularly

Your body has a daily ÔÇ£oxygen flushÔÇØ

Your food supplies plenty of fatty acids of the omega-3 and omega-6 variety

You also get plenty of detoxifying amino acids from your food ÔÇô the sulphur types that occur in garlic and onions

Adequate daily protein ÔÇô from meat, legumes, pulses etc. (about the amount that would occupy the volume of the palm of your hand at two to three meals daily)

Generous portions of fruit and vegetables ÔÇô as they are a also a source of Anti-oxidant vitamins and of soluble fibre ÔÇô but modest serves of cakes, pastes and breads.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Sometimes the short-term memory starts failing you when you approach the fifties. This is not a big deal ÔÇô if you do something about it ÔÇô and you can help reverse it any time.
What is causing you to develop these signs and symptoms younger than your parents? Consider this

What do you do if your food is not always fresh, chemical free and grown in rich, nutritious soil? What if your local water supply is mainly ÔÇ£run-offÔÇØ water and not bubbling spring water? Or worse still, if the water has washed off farms or downstream from plants using chemicals or pesticides ÔÇô or picks up even more chemicals in the treatment works?
What if you are eating some processed or take-away foods which contain artery-clogging ÔÇ£syntheticÔÇØ fats and free radicals* which accelerate the normal ageing of your body?
What if the fuel pollutants in the very air you breathe are also contributing to the acceleration of the normal ageing process?

If that is you, then you may start to slowly develop conditions which cause the following signs.

Worrying memory loss

Pins and needles in hands and feet

Poor circulation

Chest pains, gradually increasing over the years

Shortness of breath

Unexplained mood changes

Sweet cravings

Big meals not satisfying

Uncharacteristic thirst after the main meal

Are you just ageing gracefully ÔÇô or is this a sign of premature ageing?
We say that ageing of this type in under 55s is not normal but accelerated a result of a ÔÇ£soft-living syndromeÔÇØ.

To start to reverse the trend is simple:

Simply increase the amount of oily fish (ocean-caught) that you ingest

Add plenty of garlic and onion regularly

Commence the day with carrot and celery juice (80/20)

Include in the one of the daily menus some fresh, grated ginger

TARGETED SUPPLEMENTS

What else can you do about it?
Sometimes, food alone simply canÔÇÖt reverse the effect of years of damage to your body. You do need to supplement with precious anti-oxidants, amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals ÔÇô which the diet is simply not supplying.
And you need to do this in a targeted way ÔÇô which ensures that what you take does the most amount of good.
