Yes, I’m on a youthing kick. As you know, chiropractic adjustments make it possible for your body to self regulate optimally. We saw how that is done in the 2005 study that demonstrated the presence of increased thiols level in chiropractic patients. That means their DNA repair ability is greater than non-chiro patients. That’s one of the reasons why I would not want to miss my regular adjustment, ever. Plus, it feels good.
Another habit that will accelerate youthing involves taking omega 3 (fish oil) daily. I just read an article that summarizes some of these youthing effects. “N-3 (omega 3) fatty acids are essential for normal growth… and are beneficial in the management of hypertension, diabetes, arthritis and other autoimmune disorders, and cancer”. The authors further establish that the effects of omega-3 and exercise are similar. Specifically, the effects are “opposite of those of aging”. That’s why I call it youthing.
The recommended maintenance dose in this article is 1 to 2 g per day and the ratio of EPA to DHA is key to it’s effectiveness. It should be 2 to 1. So let’s recap youthing 101: get adjusted, take fish oil, exercise, meditate/pray, rest/recover and I count on seeing you in the office this week for your youthing adjustment and at Middlesex Community College for the nutrition course.
