MD SECRETS TO AGE-PROOF!
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!
TRY THE TENNIS BALL TRICK
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.”
