To hear some ex­perts tell it, once we turn 50, it’s nor­mal to start feel­ing tired, achy and just plain blah. But that’s sim­ply not true, as­serts Chris­tiane Northrup, M.D., au­thor of Mak­ing Life Easy. “The body is de­signed for health, vi­tal­ity and well-be­ing,” she says. “Our bod­ies don’t be­tray us, and they needn’t de­te­ri­o­rate with each pass­ing year.” Even when we’ve eaten a less than healthy diet (hello, win­ter com­fort food!) or haven’t been ex­er­cis­ing as much as we’d like, it’s pos­si­ble to quickly re­pair the dam­age. In fact, Dr. Northrup as­sures, a few sim­ple strate­gies can have a dra­matic im­pact on how we feel — now and for years to come. “You can look and feel 10 years younger, and it’s not hard.” Read on for Dr. Northrup’s top an­ti­ag­ing strate­gies and get set to be health­ier and more en­er­gized in no time!


Healthy feet are a must for stay­ing ac­tive and pain-free in your 50s, 60s and be­yond, stresses Dr. Northrup. And main­tain­ing the fas­cia, a con­tin­u­ous web­like net­work of tis­sue that starts in the feet and con­nects every mus­cle, bone, or­gan and nerve in the body, is key. “Phys­i­o­log­i­cal stres­sors can thicken this tis­sue, caus­ing stiff­ness and pain,” she ex­plains. But stim­u­lat­ing the soles of your feet can ac­tu­ally re­gen­er­ate fas­cia through­out the body. The easy how-to: Firmly roll each foot over a ten­nis ball for two min­utes three times a day. Says Dr. Northrup, “When the fas­cia in your feet is healthy, your whole body will feel bet­ter.”

Chris­tiane Northrup, M.D. shares the easy strate­gies that will help you look and feel 10 years younger — in no time!

“It’s sur­pris­ingly easy to turn back the clock and re­cap­ture the vi­brant health and en­ergy of your youth.”
