6 Easy Ways to Keep Your Mind Young

Dear Health-conscious Friend,

I’d like to ask you a personal question. What keeps you awake at night? Is it financial security… family concerns… job stress… or something else?

A recent survey revealed Baby Boomers worry the most about keeping their minds and memories sharp. So I wanted to share with you a few secrets that could help you stay sharp well into your 80s, 90s… and even beyond.

Your grandparents probably gave you the best basic advice when you were growing up. Don’t smoke… drink in moderation… keep your weight under control… eat a balanced diet… and stay active.

According to a 30-year British study, this simple advice can cut your risk of going foggy by a whopping two-thirds!

Chances are you already know at least some of these tips. But here’s even your doctor probably hasn’t heard…

Get dirty.

Garden, hike in the woods, build a stonewall, wrestle with your dog in the yard… Just do something that gets some good, old-fashioned dirt on your hands.

Why? Our obsession with anti-bacterial everything may be dooming us to a foggy future. When you’re not exposed to enough bacteria, your body’s immune defenses can’t fully develop. And this may have an effect on mental clarity.

Doctors at Cambridge University discovered this link. They found the less exposure people had to everyday bacteria, the more likely they were to suffer mental decline.

So much anti-aging information is coming out so fast, it’s hard to keep up. But I’ve been collecting news on anti-aging breakthrough for years. You’ll find almost 200 of the most important – and most useful – breakthroughs in the Best Life Herbal article archive.

So, how well do these anti-aging secrets and strategies work? Find out by following our blog, We Decided to Live to 100… Together.

After a serious health scare, one of your fellow Journal of Healthy Living readers realized he had to make some changes… or die young. So he and his wife set a goal: Get healthy and live to 100.

You can follow their progress – and discover even more anti-aging tricks – with his weekly bog entries.

Finally, I’d like to share a little secret. I know the world of herbs and supplements can get a little confusing. Strange names like “Xanthoparmelia scabrosa” and “Gymnema sylvestre,” can leave your head spinning.

So we’ve collected more than 100 (so far) of the herb and supplement terms you’re likely to encounter, and defined them all in a handy online glossary. Anytime you’re not sure about a supplement, you can check the glossary here.

We’ll be adding more to this list periodically, so check back any time you have a question.

Yours in continued good health,

Dr Kenneth Woliner, M.D.
