5 Steps to Protect Against Aging

Dr. Mehmet Oz, M.D. and Dr. Mike Roizen, M.D. By Wednesday, 14 November 2018 12:35 PM EST Current | Bio | Archive

When it comes to staying healthy or reclaiming your health, we always advocate getting 10,000 steps a day and eating seven to nine serving of fruits and veggies daily while dodging refined grains, processed and red meats, added sugars and syrups, and trans and sat fats.

But if you want to supercharge your efforts against aging, incorporate these five lifestyle tips. You'll decrease your risk of heart disease and dementia by more than 80 percent (according to data in five large studies), slash your cancer risk, and increase your happiness quotient exponentially. So here they are:

1. Practice daily meditation to manage your stress response. Stress causes your body to secrete hormones that raise blood pressure, suppress your immune system, raise cancer and heart attack risks, and shrink your brain cells. Meditation routines dispel stress hormones.

2. Dodge toxins. Steer clear of tobacco and secondhand smoke; eliminate unnecessary contact with hormone disruptors in plastics, personal care products and receipts; avoid pesticides; and dodge air pollution (exercise indoors on days with poor air quality).

3. Drink coffee, with no additives, daily. Decaf and caffeinated coffee temper inflammation, are brain-friendly, lower postmenopausal women's risk for Type 2 diabetes by 15 to 25 percent, lower the risk for esophageal, colon, and rectal cancers by 20 to 30 percent, and reduce the risk for endometrial, aggressive prostate, and estrogen-negative breast cancer. Drinking several cups a day of caffeinated coffee does all that, plus it may help you avoid heart disease, kidney problems, and diabetes — not to mention premature death.

4. Eat salmon/ocean trout twice a week (or take 900 mg of DHA omega-3 daily). Anti-inflammatory omega-3 DHA fatty acids are essential for eye and brain health. If you're not a fish-eater, omega-3 DHA supplements can fill the bill.

5. Enjoy an infrared sauna for 20 minutes, four times weekly. Infrared spectrum light triggers heat within your body (but not in the room around you) to ease aches and pains, and reduce stress. If you have heart issues, ask your doctor if it's okay.
