Aging isn’t so bad… consider the alternative.
But while getting older can be great, feeling older, not so much.
How do you know if you’re feeling older? Here are 5 clues:
- Fatigue. If you’re more tired than before. Notice if you don’t jump out of bed, ready to go.
- Lower Sex-drive. Lack of interest comes with age. Also lack of performance. ED in men and dryness in women. Not that you should feel 20 again, but you want to have some spark left.
- Weight Gain. Excess belly fat, trouble reducing, difficulty burning fat.
- Loss of Strength. Even if you work out you might not get strength gains. If so, aging could have something to do with it.
- Depression. Lack of motivation, loss of interest. It might not be depression in a classical sense, but rather a sign of aging.
What do all of these things have in common aside from aging? They are all signs of low testosterone levels. And this doesn’t only apply to men. Women can also suffer from low “T”.
But you don’t have to settle for this kind of decline. And you don’t have to go through the hassle of hormone replacement to increase it. There are natural ways to naturally increase your T levels and reduce signs of aging. Here are 5 of the best:
- Strength Training. Use weights or body weight exercises. Be sure to get clearance from you doctor before starting. And ideally, use a coach or trainer to start you off in good form.
- Lose Weight. Change how you are eating. Focus on whole, fresh and natural foods. Also consider intermittent fasting. That’s when you eat nothing after dinner until the afternoon of the next day. It helps reset your metabolism.
- Reduce Stress. Relax and do things you enjoy. You’ve earned it!
- Eliminate Sugar. Sugar contributes to many symptoms of aging. Inflammation, memory loss and fatigue are just some of these.
- Eat Enough Protein. Many people fall into the trap of eating comfort foods. They’re quick, easy and taste good. And they are mostly carbs. Make sure your food mix includes enough protein to sustain your body.
Pretty simple, isn’t it? And all will support not only healthy hormone levels, but also increase your quality of life.
If you do the above and still find you have aging symptoms, there are also excellent herbal and nutritional supplements that can help. This is best done on an individual basis with someone who specializes in healthy aging. I do this type of consultation for people across the U.S.
All the best to you for your health and happiness,
