Using The Mind To Be Younger In Body

Research conducted by the Langer Mindfulness Institute took a group of 80-year-olds and tested them for vision and hearing, grip strength, memory and dexterity before being taken to a monastery that was decorated to replicate life in 1959. The decor also included photos of the participants when they were that age.

Everyone wore 1950s fashions and entertainment was all 1950s TV shows, movies, books and music. They were also instructed to discuss sports and events that did happen during that era, but to talk about them in the present tense. They were told to think of themselves as actually being younger.

After five days, the participants did look younger and their scores on everything including eyesight had improved.

Another study by the Institute involved two groups of college students hoping to enter the military. All participants had 20/20 vision or better. One group was given flight suits to wear and to think of themselves as Air Force pilots while they used flight simulators. The other group just sat in the flight simulators and were told that the simulator was broken so they should just pretend to fly the plane.

Afterwards, both groups were given vision tests again and the group who viewed themselves as Air Force pilots and flew the simulator improved their vision by 40% verse the other group. So…if you want to be younger, get your mind working for you and think younger, even if it’s not the 1950s.

A Pill To Enhance Memory Brought To You By Jellyfish

There’s now a pill made from a substance in Jellyfish that is improving memory. The substance is called apoaequorin and it is found in only one species of Jellyfish. It works differently in the brain from other memory enhancers.

While it seems to actually reverse some of the effects of aging on the brain, it also seems to help alleviate the effects of serious neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease).

Three researchers received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their work with apoaequorin to track calcium activity in the body’s cells. This initial work has been taken further and it’s been found that apoaequorin also has a powerful protective effect on brain cells.

One study with 56 people from 20 to 78 showed significant improvements in memory after taking 10 mg of Prevagen (the brand name) daily for 30 days. Fifty percent reported gains in general memory and information retention. One-third did better in recall and a whopping 84% showed improvement in their ability to remember driving directions (wives love this impact on their husbands!).

Other benefits that have been reported include users feeling mentally sharper, having more mental energy and even sleeping more soundly.

If you don’t notice improvements in four weeks, you might need to increase your dosage to 20 mg daily. Also, since Jellyfish are a different species, people with fish or shellfish can use it. So…thank you Jellyfish for have a beneficial use besides stinging people!

What if You Could Have a Conversation with God?

A friend recently sent me a video about what you would ask if you could interview God for God’s viewpoint. What would you ask? How would you expect God to answer?

That’s what this video is all about. It’s beautifully shot and it’s a wonderful conversation with God. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did!

The Importance of Vitamin D During Pregnancy


We have become so concerned about getting exposure to the Sun that we attempt to eliminate all unprotected exposure to the Sun’s rays. – hand me the sunscreen! We may have gone too far.

Some of the research has been showing that when a pregnant woman is Vitamin D deficient that it has a negative and lifelong impact on her newborn baby. The child can experience allergies and more frequent colds and flu. The child may also be at greater risk of developing diabetes, cardiovascular disease and even schizophrenia.

When a mom was Vitamin D deficient, this deficiency was passed onto the child so that they had a 44% increased risk of developing schizophrenia as an adult. Separately, this deficiency has also been linked to an increase in autism in 6-year-old children.

Taking the benefits even further, research by http://GrassrootsHealth.net found that 40 to 60% of preterm births could be prevented by raising the woman’s Vitamin D level to just 40 ng/ml.

While it would be great to get 20 minutes of a noon time level of exposure to the Sun without sun screen on to stimulate your body to manufacture Vitamin D, you may not be able to get outside on a regular basis, or you’re too far north, or you still have a fear of sun exposure without a sun screen. In that case, I’d recommend that the mother take a Vitamin D3 supplements so that her blood level of D is between 60 to 80 ng/ml. This is a level that is giving you the optimum benefit of Vitamin D.

Make sure the mother takes Vitamin D3 as it is better absorbed by the body. Also, add Vitamin K2 as it helps the D to be absorbed and used correctly by the body.

A New Way to Learn Subconsciously

There’s a new way to learn that could help you master complex manual skills without even trying. It’s called passive haptic learning and it combines using wearable computers coupled with your sense of touch. In this study the participants were playing online games while they wore a pair of Google Glasses that were programmed to deliver audio signals of words spelled out in Morse code. In addition, half the participant’s glasses were equipped with a built-in, bone-conduction transducer that simultaneous delivers taps behind the right ear. After each hour-long session, they were asked to tap out letters in Morse code. At the end of four session, they were asked to tap out a sentence that used the entire alphabet in Morse code.

The group that received only the audio signals were only about 47% accurate in typing out the sentence, while the group who received both the audio signal and the tap behind the ear had a 94% accuracy level. Similar results were achieved by participants that used tactile gloves which delivered vibrations to the fingertips to teach piano and Braille. So…we may be moving into a new way of learning – tap that!

You’re Getting Older and Want to Continue Working, Consider Using Pot

Older Americans are either choosing or are being forced to work past retirement age due to their financial situation. If you’re one of them or you know someone who this applies to, you or this person can now be helped to work longer by using medical marijuana.

Researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health did a survey of over 100,000 people over the age of 50. They found, in states where medical marijuana is legal, that the survey respondents who were using marijuana reported a nearly 5% decrease in reported pain levels and a 6.6 increase in feelings of wellness.

I’ve recently been using a CBD cream topically on a groin pull and I’ve been very impressed with the cream’s ability to quickly reduce or even stop the pain. I tried one cream that had 500 mg of CBD and it worked to a degree. When I switched to a cream having 1,000 mg of CBD cream it made a major difference in reducing my pain level.

So…if you’re in a state where it’s legal, experiment with CBD cream or oil to reduce your pain. If you’re in a state where medical marijuana is legal, you can explore even further. You may be pleasantly surprised with the reduction in pain you’ll experience. And if you want to or need to work longer, it will be a piece of cake (or at least a cookie) to be able to do that.

The Fear of Having High Cholesterol Levels Is Debunked

A study published in Expert Review of Clinical Pharmacology found what they called substantial evidence that having high LDL and total cholesterol levels are not an indication of heart disease. They also found that this means that using statins has doubtful benefit.

The researchers found recent studies, as well as previous studies, used misleading statistics, excluded unsuccessful clinical trials and ignored numerous contradictory observations.

Taking this even further, they found that older people who had high LDL didn’t die prematurely. Instead they found these people actually lived longer than those who had untreated low LDL and those on statin drugs.

Finally, another study that looked at 11 statin drug studies found that statin use postponed death by…wait for it…3.2 to 4.1 days.

So,,,how many billions of dollars are people shelling out for prescriptions for statins that are not only useless but also can be harmful due to the side effects of the drug, which include, difficulty sleeping, muscle aches and weakness, dizziness, nausea or vomiting. Finally, statins affect the body’s ability to use CoQ10. Other than all of that, it's a great drug to take (tongue in cheek and fingers crossed).
