Last week we talked about 7 ways to stay young. Click here to read those ways. Here are more resources to assist in the ‘reversal of the aging process’.

8. Omega 3-6-9 oil

Omega 3-6-9 oil has been long recognized as a valuable nutritional supplement. Contact Janice Webber at jwps@eastlink.ca or JoAnn Cuddigan at joann@sunstarorganics.com.

9. Arthritis and Diabetes

Arthritis and Diabetes are two inflammatory based diseases that can accompany the aging process. A nice preventative practice that has been developed over the last few years is tai chi for arthritis and tai chi for diabetes, incorporating elements of chi gong (another ancient practice). This is a graceful way to stay young and healthy. Contact Janice Weber at jwps@eastlink.ca for a referral to local instructors in your area.

10. Transformational Coaching

One of the best coaches for transformational work, incorporating inner bonding, spiritual awareness and the ability to change the patterns of our thinking, which can manifest as disease, is my friend and associate Nancy Swisher. Nancy is an internationally recognized transformational coach who advises clients around the world. For more information, visit her website at www.choosingselflove.com

11. Rolfing/Structural Integration

Rolfing from the right resource helps counteract the inevitable influence of gravity on our bodies. For more information, go to www.rolf.org

12. Grounding and healthy boundaries

Being grounded and ‘in’ the body is complimentary to feeling welcome to our stay on the planet. Suzanne Scurlock-Durana is a master at feeling grounded, present aware and at peace in the body. For more information, go to www.healingfromthecore.com

13. Still point inducer

Lest I forget, one useful device for CranioSacral Therapy self-treatment is the Upledger Institute still point inducer. Used 5-10 minutes a day, a still point inducer is like having your own therapist at home. For more information, go to www.upledger.com

14. Soul Retrieval

There are many paths that lead to completion. A very ancient technique that has been practiced by Shamanic practioners for thousands of years is called soul retrieval. Soul retrieval allows one to resolve spiritual, emotional, and traumatic issues. This traditional way of completing often includes individual, family, multi-generational, and community concerns.

15. Blue Zones

Last but not least, I’ve recently found out that my adopted Iowa is initiating a program called Blue Zones, which is based on a book by Dan Buettner, a National Geographic explorer who did a survey of places in the world where people live the longest and fullest lives.

Dan’s website is www.BlueZones.com and it’s about the practices that create community wide well being and longevity. You should also visit www.bluezones.com/2011/08/iowa-launches-blue-zones-project to find out how the state of Iowa is launching a project to become the #1 state in the US in health and longevity in the next 5 years.
