I am 82 and quite a number of my friends have passed away because of old age ailments. I am not an expert in this field since I am a diabetic and control my sugar level with drinking bayleaf tea.
But, I'm sure that treatment is not the cause of me reaching 82 years. I believe that thinking positively has a lot to do with it. Try to keep negative thinking out of your mind, that will bless anyone with old age. It is not easy to think positively most of the time.
I agree with the positive attitude statement. I have a neighbor who just turned 101, and she is the most positive person I have ever met. She is an awesome lady. Cheers to you for using bay leaf. Cinnamon is also good for controlling blood sugar.

This is going to sound way off topic, but I've been studying the negative effects from EMFs. That's the microwave radiation that comes from wireless technologies and dirty electricity (electricity that pulses in a certain way).
Turns out that this stuff may be worse for your body and your mind, than chronic smoking!
I think that a part of aging gracefully in the near future, will be to learn about how to reduce exposure to these EMFs, in much the same way we have learned to reduce our exposure to second hand smoke.
I have just recently wrote a hub on this subject. How to improve memory naturally. Among the many supplements listed in this article, there are many more. HGH has been toted as a fountain of youth. As I will be 50 years old this year, I recommend a good multivitamin, a D3 supplement, and B-12. Add to that any supplement that fits your particular situation. Such as progesterone cream, wonderful!! Plenty of sunshine, fresh air, and water. Combined with a good, solid, spiritual foundation.
Live each day.
Enoy the moments as they come.
Smile a lot and be unabashed at finding joy in the simple, even mundane things in life.
Take pleasure in discovering new things. Learning new things keeps our minds young and it will reflect on our physical bodies.
Go out of your way to do something for someone else. Thinking of others keeps our minds off of own issues because with age sometimes diseases creep in that make us feel uncomfortable or 'old.' Focusing outward rather than inward helps our lives to be more fulfilled.
Accept that you are not 12 any more but do not become OLD because of a number that says how many years you have been on the planet. Age is such a relative thing. If you think old thoughts and limit what you can do or think you can do because of it, you are becoming old and will affect your own personal well being. Do as much as you can each day...exercise (walking is great), participate, think, create, investigate, explore, and share what you know may at a school.
We all want to look good as we get older but how exactly do we do it? Here are some easy things that you can do right now to help you look as young as you can as you age. read more
