50 years can be a lot to overcome or an incredible foundation. Most of us are somewhere in between. All of us want to feel great, AND feel great doing whatever we want. Life limited by health obstacles isn’t living life to the fullest. I believe we are designed for so much better. Therefore, not only have I put a lot of time and effort into researching this article, but I stand ready to move forward with you. Together we can find a path that leads to the 50+ freedom we want!
First, some good news. Your body is incredibly resilient. No matter how much time you have invested in self destructive behaviors, your body was created to crave a restoration to health. The path back to healthy may not be easy but it is available to all of us. We can improve how we feel and how we live. Let’s talk about some common challenges that 50+ men face and the natural, close to the earth solutions available.
Life is definitely in the blood. Your circulatory system transports healing throughout your body. It used to be that “experts” told us that all cholesterol was bad and we should therefore eat less than natural “low fat” foods. Now we know that HDL (High Density Lipids) clears out the arteries that LDL (Low Density Lipids) can clog. Some good sources of HDL include olive oil, whole grains, beans and legumes, high fiber fruit, fatty fish, nuts, avocado and red wine. I found this article to be a great resource.
You can further help your heart by exercising regularly. According to the Harvard Medical School, a resting heart rate below 60 beats per second is a sign that your workouts are working. Walking is a great way to get started. Add in higher intensity exercises as your body is ready and feel the results as you make steady progress. Great workout advice can be found here.
Man Parts Health
OK, you probably were either dreading this part or skipping to it. ED (Erectile Dysfunction) and Prostate Health are the one/two combo that can cause huge concerns. As men, we want to remain vibrant sexually, so we have to do the work. Turning a blind eye and hoping for the best is the highway to disastrous results.
Here’s a simple test from Dr. William Catalona, a prostate-cancer specialist at the Washington University school of medicine. Can you ejaculate a tablespoon of semen, or up to five milliliters, on a good day? You could when you were 20. If not, you may want to work on your prostate health. Salmon and tomatoes are two winners and a good natural supplement helps.
If you are struggling with ED, or never want to, then you need to take penis health seriously. I recommend the natural solutions found at Mr Golden Rod
Many men feel depressed when faced with the challenges that come from 50+. We clearly sense our mortality and find change more and more difficult. That’s why we need each other. The emotional restraint that society wants from men can cause them to become isolated. Having a friend to talk to can release this pressure valve.
When that friend has the same healthy lifestyle goals as you, the instant camaraderie of mutual accountability and encouragement can make all the difference in staying steady on the path to improvement. Check out this article for a starting point
There is a lot more than can be said, but let’s start here. When you tackle these three you have an incredible foundation to build on. 50+ isn’t something to fear. 50+ can be a heck of a lot of fun. It may not be easy, but if you commit to a naturally sourced, healthy lifestyle, the years ahead will be much more enjoyable!
