A 44 YEAR OLD TEENAGER SHARES HIS ANTI-AGING HEALTH TIPS

Roger Haeske is a health and fitness coach, and after going through some difficult times in his life with his mental and physical health, he ended up finding his very own fountain of youth. It’s basically just positive vibes, which is huge if you’re aware of the emerging science behind the mind-body connection, a diet predominately full of raw fruits and vegetables, and a good amount of physical exercise.

Obviously, there are a lot of people that disagree with this, and when it comes to our health it’s not always one size fits all.

As you can see from the video below, Roger is clearly in tip top shape and really looks healthy and youthful for his age. So, when it comes to his first secret, a vegetarian diet full of predominately raw fruits and vegetables, it makes sense. Dr. Deepak Bhatt, a Harvard Medical School professor and Editor-in-Chief of the Harvard Heart Letter emphasizes,

“When it comes to getting protein in your diet, meat isn’t the only option. Mounting evidence shows that reducing meat and increasing plant-based protein is a healthier way to go. A diet with any type of meat raises the risk of heart disease and cancer, when compared with a vegetarian diet.” (source)

When it comes to the second component, which is exercise, no ‘proof’ of that is really required, it goes without saying that it’s an integral and necessary part in living a healthy lifestyle that helps to slow down the aging process and therefore, age related diseases.
There’s something I’d like to add in as well, and that’s fasting and caloric restriction.
“Caloric restriction (CR), defined as lessening caloric intake without depriving essential nutrients, beginning early or in mid-life and sustained over the life span, increases longevity and delays or slows progression of multiple age-related diseases in many, but not all, laboratory animal models (1–4). ” (source)

Basically, when you take a look at caloric restriction studies, many of them show a prolonged lifespan as well as an increased ability to fight chronic disease.

“Calorie restriction (CR) extends life span and retards age-related chronic diseases in a variety of species, including rats, mice, fish, flies, worms, and yeast. The mechanism or mechanisms through which this occurs are unclear.”

The quote above is from a review of literature that is more than 10 years old. The work presented here is now showing some of these mechanisms that were previously unclear.

This brings me into another important point, the power fasting, which, like caloric restriction, turns out to have a tremendous amount of health benefits, and basically has the ability to regenerate your entire immune system. The science behind fasting is truly incredible, and based on my research and experience, it’s definitely a life changer for those who incorporate it into their lifestyle, but, it requires a lot of research.

When it comes to the mind-body connection, the research and proof is abundant, there is enough to warrant the use of these practices inside of hospitals, without a doubt. Why do I say this? Because as far back as 1999, statistics professor Jessica Utts at UC Irvine, published a paper showing that parapsychological experiments have produced much stronger results than those showing a daily dose of aspirin helps to prevent heart attacks. Utts also showed that these results are much stronger than the research behind various drugs like antiplatelets.

The interaction of our thoughts with the physical material world is of huge interest today, garnering increasing attention by academics around the world. Despite a wealth of scientific data showing that one can influence the other, and even more evidence proving that certain emotional states can lead to chronic illness, many who work in mainstream medicine remain entirely ignorant of these concepts.

Perhaps this is why more and more people are gravitating towards alternative forms of medicine. As Garth Cook from Scientific American points out:

“A growing body of scientific research suggests that our mind can play an important role in healing our body — or in staying healthy in the first place. . . There are now several lines of research suggesting that our mental perception of the world constantly informs and guides our immune system in a way that makes us better able to respond to future threats. That was a sort of ‘aha’ moment for me — where the idea of an entwined mind and body suddenly made more scientific sense than an ephemeral consciousness that’s somehow separated from our physical selves.”
