There are plenty of sadhus and yogis in Himalayas who gain energy from just air, water and sunlight and are living beyond 150 years. Aging is just unknown to them.

So, what do they know, that we don’t?

The Science of Anti Aging

A large majority of chronic human diseases are the result of early ageing.  If you can delay this ageing process you could live longer, healthier and happier.

Recent research in molecular biology has explained the process of retrograde aging.

The hypothesis behind the delaying of the aging process is, by elimination of the free radicals that cause oxidative damage to the cells and by preservation of the telomeres which are the end caps of your DNA that are responsible for cellular worn out.

Lifestyle is Everything

You too, can delay your aging process by a disciplined lifestyle with a detached mental disposition.

Here are few lifestyle practices for anti-aging –

Yoga and Exercise

Daily practice of hatha-yoga helps to develop flexibility, strength, equilibrium and improved physiological functions of the vital organs. The role of aerobic exercises, like swimming, jogging, running, cycling, treadmill or cross trainer activity improves the micro circulation, stamina and strengthens the circulatory system.

Food and Herbs

Consuming the foodstuffs which are rich in antioxidant properties delays the aging process. Regular consumption of turmeric, cinnamon, black pepper, ginger, garlic, fresh lemons, blue or black berries, asparagus, almonds and walnut are extremely beneficial to delay aging process. They also boost the immunity, helps to fight infection and have Lipid lowering properties as well.

Toxic Substances

One must avoid all toxic substances which are poor in antioxidants and those that are studded with trans-fats. You must stay far away from fried food, stale and refrigerated food and all sorts of fast foodstuffs.

Advance Breathing and Relaxation

Performing advance breathing and relaxation techniques is the key to longevity and anti aging. Pranayama improves cellular oxygenation and function.

Water

Adequate intake of water maintains cellular hydration necessary for optimal function of the cells. Dehydration gives a haggard look and triggers early aging.

Sleep

Sleep should be optimum and not more and not less. Minimum seven hours of good night’s sleep is essential.

Sex Life

Healthy Sex life is considered a cardio-tonic activity which liberates chemicals called as serotonin, oxytocin, endomorphs and dopamine which enhances the feel-good factor necessary to delay the aging process.

Body Massage

Gentle body massage at regular intervals is invigorating.

Prevention is better than cure

Mind you that resisting change is also resisting youthfulness. Accept any ‘change’ gracefully. So, these methods of controlling the aging process translates into preventing the major lifestyle diseases like heart attack, high blood pressure, diabetes and cancer that are today rising exponentially. The cost of prevention is far too less than the price that you would pay for the treatment.

I am 67 and many people don’t believe it

I have been practicing all that I have said, for the last 66 years of my life to the best of my abilities, despite being an active cardiac surgeon in the past. You too can achieve all the benefits of anti aging techniques.

I have started this venture to share my knowledge and experience with you, to connect with you and give you my secret of well-being. Watch this space to know more.

Keep your heart beating.
Until next time, Goodbye and Good Day.

how many hours of sleep-Night Sleep

How many hours of sleep, is a good night’s sleep?

How many hours of sleep is a good night’s sleep? It’s a common question these days.

Do you know that lack of adequate sleep or even excess sleep is one of the major, neglected and preventable cause of high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, heart attack and other chronic diseases?

When I share this with my patients, the first reaction I always get is “Really?”

A good sleep can do wonders. Sleeping is one of the basic human functions with enormous healing power which we often tend to undermine.

If you really look at it, human body is the greatest machines of all time. It is second to none. And as any good machine, it needs a good rest to keep working efficiently. Not less, not more, at the right time and in a right manner!

So, how many hours of sleep is a good night’s sleep?

Various “Sleep Research Institutes” recommend having a nocturnal natural sleep of at least 7 hours a day, ideally between 10 pm and 5 am when there is an optimum blood level of a protective natural hormone called melatonin.

Melatonin is involved in synchronizing body rhythm, sleep-wake cycle, regulating blood pressure and other important functions. So, it makes sense to get a sleep when there is optimum level of it in the blood.

According to Ayurveda, one must get up before sunrise that is before the cessation of VATA period in your body system. Getting up late that is after 6am when the KAPHA period begins, one feels dull, slow and heavy.

In accordance with PATANJALI Rishi, the best time to get up is the BRAMHA MUHURTA which is approximately 90 minutes before sunrise. This is the time when both the IDA and PINGALA ‘nadis’ functions simultaneously thereby promoting the activation of KUNDALINI which enlightens the person.

Less is bad

It is very well established that lack of adequate sleep leads to depression, poor performance, distorts memory, lowers the immune system, decreases sex drive and inhibit alertness levels. There is higher incidence of cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases in people with deficient sleep. Chronic sleep deprivation can cause premature aging and the person becomes prone to accidents.

More is bad too

Excess sleep in adults, that is sleeping for more than 8 to 10 hours is very unhealthy and should be completely avoided.

It has been observed that depression and lower socio-economic status is linked to over sleeping. Excess sleep increases the chances of coronary artery disease, diabetes, lethargy, obesity, depression, backaches and headache. It is also known to augment the chances of sudden death.

Generic reasons of bad sleep schedule

Indulgence in alcohol, smoking, oral tobacco or consuming stimulants like tea and coffee, late in the evening or at night will fragment your nocturnal sleep and disturb the natural bio-rhythm necessary to de-stress you and will also deprive you of the “early morning freshness”.

Congenial ambiences like the right amount of light, the right type of bed, your posture, the room temperature and a stress-free mental disposition, are also matters of importance. Poor quality of sleep will make you more stressful and this stress will disturb your sleep further.

Are you too busy to sleep?

Lots of people complain about not having enough time for sleep as they are always busy. They ask me what the solution is.

Sleep deprivation of less than 6 hours at night can be compensated with a short daytime nap or performing Yoga-Nidra or Transcendental meditation just for 20 minutes.

how many hours of sleep?

People who regularly practice Hath yoga can control the energy metabolism, which thereby improves the quality of sleep and decreases the length of the sleep, without causing any ill effects.

There are scientific methods of autosuggestion, hypnotherapy and breathing techniques that are worth mastering for rapid initiation of sleep; uniting the fragmented patterns, overcoming middle and terminal insomnia and enjoying a deep natural sleep.

Conclusion

With just a regular good night’s sleep, you can reduce the risk of many chronic diseases to great extent!

Never in my 35 years of medical practise, I have slept for more than 6 hours. But by practising different techniques, I have made sure that, that 6 hours’ sleep is always a good night’s sleep.
