      • kaen hinkle says:

    • Good morning, scheduled my blog posts early this morning – let’s see how long baby lets me stay :)

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      Good Morning Ladies, happy to be here and be learning! Help us to keep our minds sharp!

    • wendy c g says:

      Good morning everyone, hope yall had a wonderful holiday weekend. Losing your memory.

    • Raye Wiedner says:

      Hiya ya’ll. I couldn’t make it this morning, but glad to be here now. I’ve thrown away most of the myths about being ‘old’ after working in healthcare for years. I’ve seen ‘old’ 40 year olds, and young 98 year olds. It seems to mostly be attitude to me.

    • Virginia Rogers says:

      Good Afternoon all!! Have many was first scared of getting old when my first daughter graduated, then my health going down, grey hair, and becoming a grandma, have all definitely made me feel aged! :)

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      Good morning all. I would say forgetfulness.

    PROSTATE HEALTH

    Obviously, it is the men’s health issue. However, it is not just man’s problem, as the whole family would be dealing with its devastation.

    The trend that is being in force in life at this point – more and more of young men are getting serious prostate issues. It is no longer a disease for 65-year-old men and older.

    Just some of the Reasons that are listed to be reasons for prostate issues:

    – Sedantary lifestyle
    – Studies indicate that the two faulty genes – BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 – which are important risk factors for breast cancer and ovarian cancer, have also been implicated in prostate cancer risk.
    – Diet void of a balanced vegetable intake.
    Basically, if a person is avoiding plant-based and fresh diet, it is a more chance to develop prostate disease.
    – Obesity
    A study found a clear link between obesity and raised prostate cancer risk, as well as a higher risk of metastasis and death among obese people who develop prostate cancer.
    Read the STUDY here.
    – Agent Orange
    “Veterans exposed to Agent Orange have a 48% higher risk of prostate cancer recurrence following surgery than their unexposed peers, and when the disease comes back, it seems more aggressive,” researchers say.
    Read STUDY here.

    With a person taking responsibility for his health and with our support of our men, we could eliminate this aging myth!

    • kaen hinkle says:

      I agree you need to see your DR on a regular routine that way you can get the test you need

    • julie ferguson gould says:

      Great things to know with 3 sons. Thanks for the great information

    • Thanks for the info!

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      I found it interesting that the prostate gland starts enlarging at the age of 25. That is not what I would have expected. My dad was a Marine, I will have to show him this information.

    • Raye Wiedner says:

      I informed a family member the other day that he was 1 year away from the recommended age for a prostate exam, given his family history and his diet. I had no idea a man’s eyes could widen that much!! LOL. I saw pure panic…….but after a little chat, he agreed he’d get checked. I’ve lost two loved ones to prostate cancer, I don’t want to lose anymore.

    • Virginia Rogers says:

      Is scary and many issues hitting younger and sadly many go back to eating habits. Working on those myself!! :)

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      This is good to know. I am glad both my sons watch what they eat.

    Sexual Life plays an important role in our psychological and bodily health.

    Look at the infographic above!

    It shows that there are a lot of Natural and very easily attainable sources to maintain your sexual health:

    – Lifestyle changes: more physical movement, less smoking and drinking alcohol
    – Living in a more peaceful state of mind: meditation, mindful living
    – Supplements: Niacin, Potassium, L-arginine

    What the infographic is missing is the REITERATION —>

    We DO NOT need to wait til 65 to start making these changes. With mindful living and treating our lives with more respect, we could truly enjoy our living and graceful aging.

    • kaen hinkle says:

      well that sounds like a good thing to do and prepare for in our every day busy life I think it takes control over us it is up to us to stop and smell the rose

    • julie ferguson gould says:

      Always need to be mindful of the future for sure. We need to think of things on a daily basis of how we can keep our mind body and soul healthy

    • it’s all about healthy lifestyle – the younger we start, the better shape we’ll be in.

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      I found it very interesting that there are natural supplements you could take like Niacin, Potassium, and L-arginine. I had never heard that before. Stress seems to mess up everything in a persons body!

    • wendy c g says:

      I started doing yoga to relax and mediate.

    • Raye Wiedner says:

      I think our health and what we do to maintain it, affects all aspects of our quality of life in our later years.

    • Virginia Rogers says:

      Think there are so many of us guilty of busy lives and not taking time to do the things should be doing, with my conditions now has made me more aware and scared as only 44 to be totally disabled is scary.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      This is in fact what a lot of people do is put exercise off and life changes til they are older. I do think that is change more and more now though.

    ARTHRITIS As a Way of Living These Days

    It’s aweful that a huge percentage of 18-44-year-old Americans are diagnosed with Arthritis. It is more than 3 in 10!

    Obviously, there are reasons that are beyond our control like genes.

    Since most forms of arthritis are inherited to some degree, there is no real way to prevent them.

    Arthritis that follows joint injury could be prevented by adhering to safety regulations and trying to avoid becoming injured.

    Arthritis related to infection (for examples, septic arthritis, reactive arthritis, Whipple’s disease) could be prevented by not becoming infected with the causative organism.

    What could be done to successfully managing this condition?

    As you see in the infographic —> Maintaining Healthy Weight as the Primary source.

    And weight is connected to a healthy diet and active lifestyle.

    • kaen hinkle says:

      wow I did not know about that that many ppl living with it thank goodness we don’t have a problem here

    • julie ferguson gould says:

      Great articles for reading. Im going to keep this all handy for further reading :)

    • my grandmother has been suffering from arthritis for many years, and she has always maintained a healthy BMI. I guess it’s genetic… let’s hope I skipped that gene.

    • wendy c g says:

      My husband has arthritis since he was a child.

    • Raye Wiedner says:

      I strongly suggest glucosamine for anyone with arthritis. It’s genetic here, and the glucosamine changed everything, it’s a wonder supplement! I give it to hubby too. With all the broken bones he’s had over the years (Evel Kneivel has nothing on him!)…….he’s arthritic from head to toe. With the glucosamine, it doesn’t take over his life.

    • Virginia Rogers says:

      Am dealing with this now as fractured my ankle 3 years ago and never healed no have arthritis and much pain with it.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      I know I inherited it from both my grandmothers.

    • kaen hinkle says:

      why I would say my grandson keeps his grannie moving and we do see the chripractor every week this has been so good to have this option and it helps me so much I don’t know where I would be with out it

    • julie ferguson gould says:

      I try to walk , even if its around the house over and over. Hard to get outside sometimes but yes My Mommy is 83 and still kicking. She has always made sure she kept herself on the move…..

    • great tips. I have tendinitis issues… would this help for that too? (I guess it can’t hurt to try 😛 )

    • wendy c g says:

      I just started walking on the treadmill, helps keep me loose.

    • Virginia Rogers says:

      Definitely not a myth on a high dose of D3 and Oscal and just had a dexiscan. Working on changing eating habits praying to help both weight and health :)

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      I was just thinking that my doctor has never told my to loose weight but every doctor has said I wore my body out. They said at age 32 I had the body of a 65 yr old. That was 13 yrs ago

    Your Brain Continues To Grow As We Advance in Age

    Here are your daily reminders that are emphasized in the infographic:

    1. Daily dose of Omega-3 DHA!
    When buying Omega-3 supplements, DO check the Ratios and Amounts of DHA vs APA.
    The approximate ratio between DHA and APA should be 1:3

    Do make sure that they list DHA Amounts in Milligrams. On those supplements where you do not find the exact amounts per serving, they’re hiding the true amounts of DHA —> which is What you need for your health benefits! The more DHA, the Better!

    2. Keep Your Mind Active!
    – Learn new skills
    – Do puzzles and crosswords
    – Read!

    3. Keep your Friendships and Social Life
    By doing so, you are forming and strengthening the brain connections and psychological balance that allows you to function at a higher, more active level.

    4. Be Physically Active
    Regular walks, jogs, physical activities are a must to keep your physical body and brain in shape! All the pheromones released during the physical exercise are producing amazing healing and feel-good effects on us. Plus, our muscle tissue is growing and allowing to thwart de-calcification and loss of muscles situations!

    • kaen hinkle says:

      yep I knew my grandson was good for me to have he keeps me young at heart but age is showing but at 47 I still do not feel old

    • julie ferguson gould says:

      I love doing crosswords. I love to play Scrabble here on the PC I make sure I keep my mind busy. Sometimes I do things that my kids have always been embarrassed about in regard to doing crazy physical type things…..rolling down grassy hills with the grandkids that type of thing :) Trying harder this year too . I need to mak a daily effort, thats what its all about….Daily No Matter What

    • I used to do lots of puzzles… the digital age has destroyed that for me. I should at least download that word find game I used to play on my tablet again…

    • wendy c g says:

      I take omega supplements, also love doing puzzles.

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      I really need to work on expanding my social circles and developing new friendships.

    • Raye Wiedner says:

      This reminded me to put Omega 3 supplements on my shopping list, we’re out! Part of hubby’s therapy is brain exercises, and puzzles, and I get the benefit of trying to come up with new ones for him. We’ve decided to try to learn a new language too, this should be interesting lol. Thank goodness for social media that allows me to interact with friends and family daily…..he gets anxious around most people, so we don’t socialize as much as we used to.

    • Virginia Rogers says:

      My doctor reminds me of all these constantly. I try to do as much as can to keep mind going!! :)

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      My dogs are good for me to have because they keep me moving no matter how sore or bad I feel.
