You won't find the Fountain of Youth in chemical drugs, but you can reverse your biological clock by following this simple protocol.
“How would you like to turn back the clock? How about increasing your energy and confidence? How about getting out of a chair easily? How about increasing your walking speed and making yourself much more sure-footed? How about climbing stairs like when you were younger? And best yet, how would you like to look and feel 15‐20 years younger?”
Health Alert, Vol. 15, No. 5
Well, let’s see, I wrote those words over 20 years ago. And William Shakespeare said, “Oh it is excellent to have a giant’s strength,” almost 400 years ago. Both are still true today. And equally true today is that there is no pill, potion or elixir, at any price, that is the fountain of youth. But there is one thing—and only one thing that I know of—that can reverse your biological age. It is getting strong with the combination of lifting weights and eating real food.
A 102‐Year‐Old Lifting Weights?!
Ray Clark started lifting weights when he was 98. His wife had died and he was bored. And just what has weight lifting done for Mr. Clark? It accomplished the same thing it can do for you, even if you are in the “older old” population—over 85 years old.
Just like Ray Clark, weight lifting will reverse your biological clock. That means increased strength, better balance, more endurance, and far greater range of motion. But more importantly it means staving off frailty, invalidism, sarcopenia, and dramatically reducing medical trappings for all the ills related to these problems.
Sarcopenia affects close to 45% of all Americans over age 60—and it is getting worse. Even middle‐aged Americans are now hobbling around, insecure in their strength, brittle, frail, ever aware of impending falls, unable to get out of a chair or climb stairs, and afraid of developing the usual diseases related to sarcopenia—namely diabetes, osteoporosis, and obesity. The wasting away of American muscle now costs more than $18 billion annually—mostly related to falls, obesity, and type 2 diabetes.
Fountain of Youth?
Lifting Weights Staves Off Sarcopenia
But with strength training this does not have to be you. Besides staving off diseases related to weakness, you can also save money for untold medical costs, protecting you from going medically broke. And you can stay independent, strong, and out of a nursing home. In short, strength training (weight lifting) is the real fountain of youth. And Mr. Ray Clark not only proves it, but also proves that his gains can be made at any age.
Lifting weights staves off sarcopenia, which is totally preventable—not with drugs, but with exercise. In fact, weight lifting causes the exact opposite of sarcopenia, even in oldsters. Exercise scientists had men and women in nursing homes lift weights, and to everyone’s surprise, the scientists found that within a year these folks had tripled their strength. They also dramatically lowered their risk of hip fracture. They built bone (increased their bone density) rather than just continuing on the downward slide of osteoporosis. They dramatically reduced their number of falls and enjoyed more ease getting in and out of chairs. They were also able to climb stairs when they previously could not, and they enjoyed a much greater tolerance to hot and cold!
These kinds of studies prove what Shakespeare said—it is great to have strength. And anyone can safely get strong with weight lifting, even those with arthritis, hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, and more—even those late into their 90s. If you want to feel 20 years younger, there is no pill. But there is strength training—proven safe and effective.
And for best results, lift weights with the Slow Burn Technique. Get a copy of THE SLOW BURN FITNESS REVOLUTION by Hahn, Eades and Eades. With this technique you can work out for less than an hour every five days! We have this book for you at a discount here, or call 1‐800‐231‐8063 (M‐F, 7 to 5 PST).
Add a Protein Shake
When you start strength training, add in the ingredient that will make it even more powerful. Lots of seniors do not get quality protein. And when you start lifting weights, your body will need quality protein to strengthen muscles, build stronger bones, and stabilize your joints. The very best thing you can do is to have a daily protein shake. And I have the very best one—the one I use every day.
Use milk or water in a blender. Add 2 heaping tablespoons of Whey Pro Complete and 1 tablespoon of Calcifood® Powder (both from Standard Process®), some frozen blueberries (organic blueberries are available at Costco), and a banana. If you are underweight, you can add a large tbsp. of full‐fat Greek yogurt and some coconut milk cream. Blend for a delicious shake that will provide you with real, quality protein; colostrum; inulin for your gut; real, raw bone powder with all the enzymes and ancillary bone factors; and lots more. Have this in the morning instead of cereal. This drink is truly the breakfast of champions, while cereal is the breakfast of diabetics.
Use this kind of shake that is low in sugar and high in quality protein and bone nutrition. Drink lots of pure water. Eat real foods and avoid all the sugary carbohydrates that cause diabetes. With the money you save on doctors, join a local gym. These are inexpensive and have everything you need, including coaching, for your strength training. Give yourself a year, even though you will feel better in 45 days. One year after you start, you will be one year older, but you will feel 20 years younger—the definition of the real fountain of youth.
And Avoid Medical Problems
Perhaps the best benefit of all from weight lifting, pure water, real food, and protein shakes is less need for medical procedures and better odds of staying out of a hospital. Hospitals are now more dangerous than ever. The drug resistant infection problem is becoming catastrophic. A minor surgery or even a single injection can cause you the loss of a limb or even your life. And believe it or not, surgical errors called never events—because they should never happen—are still common. Surgeons leave a foreign object in a patient’s body 39 times a week.1. They perform the wrong procedure on a patient 20 times a week.2 And they operate on the wrong body site 20 times a week.3 Don’t let this happen to you. Get strong. Get healthy. Get younger.
Treatment of the symptoms of disease will almost always fail to help you truly resolve your health problems. For that reason, none of the treatments/protocols in this article are intended to treat any disease or condition. Rather, they are designed to treat you. You will be shown how to identify, address, treat, and/or eliminate the underlying causes of your health problems—giving you the opportunity to finally get well and even cure yourself.
