    Walford's chart on running fitness and CR

    Yoga slows down the process of oxidation which is the reason why we get old and die. Oxidation, ironically, is also the very process that keeps us alive. It refers to how the oxygen we breathe in is used in the cells to produce energy. And in this reaction, free radicals are released which is responsible for the gradual ‘corrosion’ of the body. What yoga eventually does to your physiology is that it slows your breath rate. It makes you a slow and deep breather. Thus decreasing the rate of oxidation happening. And makes you live a longer life. In this case, I suggest you a good mental and healthy pose of yoga here - https://verv.com/relax-your-mind-and-spirit-best-yoga-poses-for-meditation/
  2. The true purpose of meditation is to let go of your constant stream of thoughts that you go through daily like your fears, desires, anxieties, etc., and experience stillness so that you can have the glimpse of your soul. And about Foods with high water content, such as fruits and vegetables, moisturize the skin and keep you hydrated. They also contain antioxidants to protect against cell damage for younger-looking skin. Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish, such as salmon, nourish the skin and may help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. This combination works for me.

  3. So, fasting, for example intermittent fasting or warrior diet, suppose to extend your lifespan and increase lean body mass due to higher release of growth hormone, but you are saying that increased growth hormone decreases lifespan and muscle mass drill. I am confused. Could someone explain, please?
  4. just took my first dose of AHCC (3 g) upon waking as 6 pills all at once, about an hour before I had my morning coffee. Am I supposed to be taking them all at once or should I be spreading them out, taking two at a time throughout the day? I have read conflicting advice about this. Also, should I always be waiting an hour after taking the pills before having my coffee?

    Mid-life

    Mid-Life for me I am 43. 235 pounds. 6 feet. Had spent the last two months with wicked sciatica up and down my right leg. I am relatively active, I think. I do cardio three to five times a week, play golf once a week, chase my kids and dog and keep on keepin' on, but this sciatica had me crippled. I tried to fight through it (former wrestler that I am), but, when I started to regularly turn in golf scores that were 7-10 strokes higher than normal, I knew I had a problem! After a day at my desk, I literally had to drag my right foot behind me since the glute and hamstring were so tight I couldn't extend them and the nerve pain when I tried to do so was intense. I've been start using the inversion table five mornings a week for about 7 weeks now. Initially, because my sciatica was so bad, I was doing a morning and evening session, but that only lasted for two weeks. My pain disappeared and so there was no need for two-a-days. 7 weeks in, this thing is still great and sturdy. I've long since gotten used to the ankle clamps. As long as I have sneakers on, there's no pain there

    Protein and age

    I've done some more research. One of the studies he bases his claim that high protein diets are unhealthy on is this one: 'Dietary preferences and diseases of age' Bras & Ross. Nature, 1974. It shows that rats on a 22% protein diet had a 4 times higher chance of getting heart disease than rats on a 10% protein diet. Rats on a 51% diet did worse. They also had a higher chance on kidney and prostate problems. I wonder what this says for human beings. If high protein is really this unhealthy I would expect it has been investigated in large studies with humans.
