Do you want to Live Longer?

Published on 28 Nov 2017 updated June 11 2018 I have written previously on the philosophy of longevity, but here I write about the practical and necessary steps to follow for a longer life. These steps require that you take a degree of self responsibility and decide for yourself how your life is going to play out rather than let it be shaped by others. If you are able to become responsible for yourself and determine your own actions, you will in fact be the boss of your own life with some control as to the how and when of ending.

All living things in this existence must come to an end

Keeping your gut happy

Cafe meal

We live in a very high-pressure world and we need to perform at our best in order to succeed. However this pressure means that we often take short-cuts without diet and lifestyle. In a perfect world, we could sit for an hour or more and enjoy a quality meal with friends and even a glass of wine.

However so many people live on fast food and if that’s you, then your digestive tract is under a lot of pressure. Fast food tends to be highly processed, full of unpleasant chemicals and because it is fast, we eat in a hurry and continue our activities before digestion has taken place.

A consequence of this

Aluminium Toxicity

A great construction material – but should we be eating it?

A roll of aluminium

Aluminium is an abundant and very useful mineral salt that’s refined and widely used to make vehicles, tools, building materials and cooking utensils. It’s also used to make the tools and machinery used to process and manufacture the products and foods we use everyday.

Aluminium is used as an additive in medicines, in almost all processed foods and beverages and many skin care products.

Scientists, and the powers and authorities that govern us think that aluminium is harmless and that there is no definitive evidence that aluminium is in anyway detrimental to our health.

Despite its prevalence in the environment, aluminium salts are not

The Salt of Life

So why the fuss?

It was not only in Rome that salt was so prized, salt has always been one of the worlds major commodities and it remains so today. All over the world salt is harvested and distributed because without salt would not live.

Even animals need salt and in the wild naturalists have observed how elephants go to extraordinary lengths to acquire salt, and most farmers wanting to raise healthy stock provide salt licks for them. So what is it about salt?

Most of us have grown up in an environment where salt has been added to almost all food. It enhances flavour and contributes toward our nutritional acquirements. However most commercial salt is almost always pure sodium

Fluoride and mind control

Based on years of research

The fluoridation of public water supplies as a preventative for tooth decay has been widely implemented and hailed as one of the top medical achievements of the 20th Century, but such mass medication is not without risk and has highly questionable motives.

Fluoride comes from fluorite

Fluorite is a colourful widely occurring mineral which is found in large deposits in many areas of the world and the colour is a clue to it being toxic. Industrially, fluorite is used as a flux for smelting, and in the production of certain glasses and enamels. The purest grades of fluorite are a source of fluoride for hydrofluoric acid manufacture, which is used as an intermediate source of

Zinc

An essential mineral

Zinc is one of the most important minerals needed for our everyday metabolism and it is found in almost every cell. It stimulates the activity of approximately 100 enzymes, which are substances that promote biochemical reactions in your body. Zinc supports a healthy immune system, is needed for wound healing, helps maintain your sense of taste and smell, and is needed for DNA synthesis. Zinc also supports normal growth and development during pregnancy, childhood, and adolescence.

Copper

An essential mineral

Copper acts as a catalyst in the formation of hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying blood component. The highest concentrations in the body tissue are found in the liver and certain areas of the central nervous system, particularly the brain. Copper is stored in the liver and excreted in bile salts. It is a chief component of elastin in muscle fibers throughout the body and we also need copper for:

the absorption & utilization of Iron oxidizing Vitamin C – copper works with vitamin C to form elastin aiding in the formation of hemoglobin and red blood cells helps proper bone formation & maintenance maintaining hair and skin colour Healing Energy production Taste sensitivity Healthy nerves and joints Formation of

Chromium

An essential mineral

Chromium has been identified as a component required for maintenance of normal blood glucose where chromium acts synergistically with insulin to facilitate cellular uptake of blood glucose.

Medical research has shown that persons with low levels of chromium in their bodies are more susceptible to having cancer, heart problems and diabetes.

Chromium

Calcium

An essential mineral

Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body with most of it in our bones and teeth with the remaining 1% in the soft tissues and watery parts of the body where calcium helps to regulate normal processes of the body. Calcium is perhaps the most important mineral in the body, which we need for:

Boron

An essential mineral

We need boron for healthy bones as it aids in the metabolism of calcium, phosphorus and magnesium. It also supports brain function and alertness.

Research has shown that boron increases the life span of some insects and used demonstrated to overcome the effects of vitamin D deficiency in test animals. It appears that boron, in combination with vitamin D enhances the mineral content of bone, while boron alone enhances the maturation of growth cartilage.
