I have something against those folks who do nothing to look younger. Just because they are now in their forties or fifties, they let themselves look old, not necessarily grow old. While you cant do anything about growing old, you really can do something about looking old. I also agree that age is nothing but a number and how old you are is first how old you think you are. You can delay the aging process for as long as possible if you persists to think and look young all the time.
Todays world of science has several processes that help you look younger as you grow older. Many of these processes have even gone commercial. This is why you can surely see a sixty year old looking thirty. But we are yet to see a process that stops you from dying.
Life extension began as a dream, a figment of someones imagination. But these days, it is a major process that is used in anti aging for keeping people alive in spite of whatever ailments they might suffer from.
To prolong your life, you might want to turn to anti aging. This however offers no guarantees as to your joy or state of mind. For that, you must be disposed and able to enjoy all the profits that come with old age, much as you might not like to acknowledge them.
You people used to live longer back in the day. Perhaps it was because of the drug and medicines that they used in those times. Perhaps people die quicker and younger today because of the many secrets to good health that they have lost over time. Perhaps the only true path to longevity and excellent health is a re-visitation of alternative medicine.
It has been found that many of the diseases in the world today are directly similar with the pollution in and around our places of being. If we can purge the world of all the damage that had been done to it, we would not have to work so hard to heal diseases. We wouldnt even have them in the first place! Then we could live as long as we wanted, and never worry about death.
India and China are among many ancient cultures that did extensive enquiry into life extension. They are known to have developed protracted traditions of consuming herbs and foods, diets and health practices that were meant to foster anti-aging. What they achieved give us the confidence to continue todays research.
Centenarians have piloted airplanes, practiced medicine, danced, sculpted, taught in universities, graduated from universities, run for Congress, and fathered children through the course of their lives. What they have achieved, many of them are ready to share with any who would listen. From them you can learn without problems that there is little need to fear old age as it comes upon you. Instead you should embrace it as a fact of life, and you will so enjoy it.
