Yoga for Long Life

Physical activity is deeply valuable for bone health. Sure, walking is the greatest of all for the prevention bone density. But it won’t do much for wrist or spinal fractures, so we need free hand Yoga exercises to keep our upper body bones strong.  Above all don’t smoke, get lots of exercise, eat lots of beans & green leafy vegetables, and cut out the fat to live a long life on this planet.  Eat plant-based food, now, if you wait until your baseline nitric oxide supply gets too low, it may be too late. Use whole grains over refined grains and apples over apple juice. Take broccoli, arugula chard, other greens, beans, calcium-enriched non-dairy milk, tofu, dried fruits, kiwi, and soy yogurt. Amla, Aloe Vera and  Green tea’s detoxifying properties helped to stay young with long life.

You need about 500-700 mg of calcium per day. Don’t drink the milk much but walk for a mile every day. Do yoga exercise for at least 30 minutes per day.  The social contact appears to be as important as the calories burned and the joints lubricated. According to my spirituals master Amit Ray “Most heartening is to increase the span of life either you should be like a child or you should be in contact with the children. “

Calcium supplement is not the answer. “We calculate that for every 1,000 people treated with calcium for 5 years, it will lead to four additional myocardial infarctions, four additional strokes, and two additional deaths, while preventing three fractures,” Dr. Ian R. Reid said.  Click here for the press release.

Some simple tips for long life are as follows:

  • Always see the positive side of the life
  • Always stay with cheerful friends
