For many, the idea of not being able to do anything for yourself anymore is actually worse than the idea of death itself.
And if you do this one thing, you’re almost certain to lose your ability to live at home alone. Or even be left alone for more than a few hours.
It’s a life no one wants—and that’s why you have to do everything you can to guard against THIS…
The single best way to keep your independence
Falls are the leading cause of hospitalization for people over 65 years old. They’re the 3rd leading cause of chronic disability.
The fact of the matter is, if you can’t get around on your own, you can’t take care of yourself.
And as you’re probably well-aware, as you age your bones get weaker. It’s a normal part of life, called ostepenia. Poor absorption of nutrients make healing your bones more difficult as life goes on.
So here’s what you need to do: take all the precautions you can to ensure you don’t take a nasty spill.
Now, I know that seems like common sense…
But along with your bones getting more fragile, so does your ability to judge how high a step is. It’s a deadly combination.
And new research shows a way you can FIGHT BACK… starting RIGHT NOW…
Canadian researchers designed a study to see what can be done to prevent this. In Canada, as many as 20-30 percent of seniors have serious falls every year.
They found doing balance and resistance exercises just three times a week is enough to keep seniors from breaking bones.
There’s nothing complicated about it either; you can do it in the comfort of your own home with something as simple as free weights.
A physical trainer did come monthly to help prescribe exercises and make sure the seniors were doing the exercises properly. But this life-enhancing therapy is well worth any time you’ll spend.
Researchers found study participants not only had better balance, but they also improved their cognitive ability — two keys to making sure you can live on your own!
However, if lifting weights isn’t something you’re confident or interested in, how about hitting the dance floor?
Dancing requires balance, precise movements, and a lot of thought. You’ll be able to build your muscles and brain at the same time (and maybe have a little fun, too).
