· Comments Off on The Aging Process: Can It Be Reversed?
Filed under: General
With regard to fitness, for many years, I have been outspoken about my support of sports and strength training as good alternatives to redundant exercises like treadmill workouts. Steve Holman, editor-in-chief of Iron Man Magazine, has taken that idea to the extreme with a new body shaping program designed to slow down and even reverse the aging process. But he’s not the only one interested in the concept of aging.
You may also be familiar with the Real Age Program, or with one of its founders, Dr. Mehmet Oz. Real Age asserts that your actual age is often not in synch with the biological condition of your body. Based on your level of conditioning and diet and other factors, your body may be aging at an accelerated rate. Real Age calculates your age based on your body’s condition and compares it your chronological age. The goal is to improve the body so its actual “real age” is at or below one’s biological age. To me, that is the basis for Holman’s approach: return the body to the youthful condition that it was in before declining fitness and other factors accelerated the aging process.
According to Steve Holman, after we reach the age of 40, our bodies start aging at a faster rate than they had to that point. Studies have shown that without the proper nutrients and exercise, our bodies are aging about 6 months extra for every year that passes! So, let’s say you’re 40. By the time you reach 50, you will look and feel 55. By the time you reach 60, you will look and feel 70 years old! I don’t know about you but that kind of aging does not appeal to me a whole lot.
Did you ever notice that the folks who stay the most physically active seem to be aging more slowly than others who don’t? In my mind, I picture a 63-year old woman gardening while her 65-year-old husband is chopping wood nearby and they both look like they’re in their 50s. Hmm… maybe that was a scene from a 1940s movie but I think it makes the point. They kept active with muscle taxing activities and no doubt felt and looked younger because of it. Steve Holman says that 90% of people over the age of 35 lose enough muscle every year to burn off an additional 4 pounds of body fat. The aging process really starts to catch up with us at that point. Muscle gives shape and strength to our bodies. As we know, when you lose muscle mass, you gain fat, even if the calories you take in stay the same. We don’t feel or look as good. Then we get depressed because we don’t feel and look as good. Then we give up on retaining our youth and it’s all downhill from there. Wow. That was depressing, huh?
Fear not! That doesn’t have to happen.
Both the folks at Real Age and Steve Holman insist that all of this accelerated aging is reversible. According to them, there are specific ways to move and eat that will slow down the rapid aging process to the point where you’re aging less than a year for every year. That means we can look younger in a few years than we do now? Now that is an aging plan we could get behind, right?
Not so fast. Are there drugs, supplements or expensive supplies to buy? No. Just food choices and targeted short-duration exercises are involved. Steve Holman says his years as a fitness magazine editor have allowed him to pick up tips, tricks and strategies from anti-aging experts over the years. And they don’t involve cycling classes or elliptical machines.
According to Steve, to get started, there are 5 rules one must absolutely follow if he or she wants to “slow the aging process, reclaim your health and achieve your ideal body”:
Forget low-fat diets. They lead to sugar addiction and we all know what that causes – fat storage!
Work out less. Resistance training done the right way burns fat and is a great cardiovascular workout, as well. Sports that tax muscles over the entire body can be effective, as well.
Drink water. Water renews your skin, helps burn fat, suppresses hunger and allows your kidneys to operate under less strain which allows your liver to burn fat like it’s supposed to.
Stop endless cardio workouts. Cardiovascular conditioning can be gained with far less time and effort. New studies are showing that long-duration exercise accelerate the aging process by increasing free radicals. These free radicals are scavengers that prey on your body’s essential nutrients and tissues.
Don’t blame your age for all your fitness issues. Studies have shown that men and women of every age, even those in their 90s, were able to gain muscle tone in just a matter of weeks of simple weight training.
Well, those are good guidelines to use to begin combating the aging process. There’s an old saying that goes something like, “I want to die as young as possible at as old an age as possible” (or something like that). I do follow the 5 steps already, though I would admit to not doing enough of #2. How about you? I have been told I look younger than I really am and that’s nice. Now if only I could reverse the aging process so I would feel younger…
Hi. This is Mike. As I mentioned, playing sports can give you a great full body workout and help reverse the aging process.

At MorningStar, it’s in the air. In the very chemistry of the place. You can feel it. You can see it with your own eyes, every day: our staff flat out loving our residents, loving them like they do their own moms and dads.
Ken Jaeger, founder of MorningStar, proved his acumen for the senior living industry through 15 years of executive roles, garnering experience in acquisitions, construction and management.
In 2003, an idea began to take shape, a pressing dream to create his own brand of senior living defined by the human touch. “I wanted to re-create my grandmother’s house, a place where one can go and feel a sense of family.”
Ken had specific designs on how to foster the ultimate environment for the well being of seniors. Out of these convictions, he established three precepts for MorningStar: Honor God. Value All Seniors. Invest generously in his team.
From his first home in Denver, MorningStar Assisted Living of Littleton, the difference was manifest: all the amenities of a five-star resort infused with the warmth of a real home.
And now, ten years and 12 homes later, MorningStar has become a landmark name in senior living.
From independent living to assisted living, from basic care through Alzheimer’s support, MorningStar’s continuum of service allows residents to extend their stay until a diagnosis calls for 24-hour nursing. Through Respite Care and Day Programs, MorningStar also opens its homes for short-term stays.
Our website offers even more about the MorningStar difference. There you’ll read about WellStar, our signature program which encompasses the physical, social, spiritual and intellectual sides of wellness. You’ll see a gallery of our award-winning architecture and gracious design. And find a Decision Guide that helps families understand & navigate the complex world of senior living, complete with downloadable templates. Read especially “Testify to Love,” which captures the sentiments of residents, their families and our staff as to why we do what we do and the impact we have.
We see our residents as heroes—men and women who have exacted out of life all its triumphs and trials, who in raw courage and tenacity have invested their days. Seniors are a testimony to the colossal events in history. They’ve witnessed world wars and the worldwide web—all in one glorious sweep. If anyone deserves honor and respect, it is our seniors. This is MorningStar’s high and chosen calling.

WestCare Foundation Announces Expanded Veterans Programs
(Las Vegas) – WestCare, a community-based nonprofit providing responsive human services and behavioral health care programs for four decades, announced today that it has expanded its Veterans’ services.
WestCare, founded in Las Vegas 40 years ago, serves approximately 5,000 veterans throughout the United States annually. America’s returning warriors often face health challenges including substance abuse and mental health disorders, identified as this generation’s “invisible wounds of war.” Among them are post traumatic stress, brain injury, sexual trauma, anxiety and depression. Episodes of homelessness, unemployment, and criminal justice involvement are not uncommon among our Veterans.
“These challenges present opportunities for community organizations, led by specially trained, qualified and informed staff, to assist with issues such as social isolation, domestic violence, reintegration and transition, and other problems a Veteran, as well as Veteran family members, may be experiencing,” said veteran and Director of Veteran Services, Dan Bernal. “WestCare is committed to helping Veterans and military family members live positive, productive and healthy lives.”
WestCare’s expanded programs are aimed at addressing a broad range of issues for Veterans and their families through services that include: treatment for substance abuse and mental health disorders with gender or youth-specific services as appropriate, HIV/AIDS-specific programs, assistance to homelessness including transitional shelters and permanent housing projects, family counseling, community reintegration, assistance to those who are justice involved, educational and vocational programs for both youth and adults, and case management.
From the top down, starting with WestCare’s President and Vietnam Veteran, Richard Steinberg, more than 10 percent of WestCare’s leadership and staff are Veterans and members of military families. The organization has a deep understanding of military culture at every level and in every program. “Serving those who have served” is more than a slogan at WestCare.
Since the organization’s inception, Veterans have been welcomed into WestCare programs. Today, the expanding reach of Veteran-specific programs is aimed at extending services to the men and women who deserve respect for their service, understanding of where they have been and opportunities for their future.
WestCare, whose mission “uplifting of the human spirit,” was founded 40 years ago in Las Vegas. Since its inception, it has grown to more than 100 locations in 16 U.S. States, the US Virgin Islands and the Pacific Islands headquartered in Guam. The non-profit organization has a variety of programs available in each of the communities it serves. For more information on the WestCare Foundation and its mission, visit www.WestCare.com.
Are There Really Senior Citizens Job Opportunities Out There?
Are you a senior, and have you convinced yourself that there aren’t any more senior citizens job opportunities lurking in the underbrush these days, let alone walking down main street U.S.A.? Do you subscribe to the notion that all senior citizens job opportunities are now being grabbed up by smooth complexioned youngsters that don’t remember a world with Ted Williams and Frank Sinatra in it doing their thing?
Wake up! Look around you. Sure the economy is in some pretty sorry straits, but this kind of down turn has happened numerous times throughout history and men and women have all survived it. There are real, honest to goodness senior citizens job opportunities out there right now needing someone with your unique talents and skills to fill them. You’re right. Maybe you don’t know where the senior job openings are. But they don’t know where you are either and they’re sure not going to come knocking on your door while you’re watching TV soap operas.
You have to stand up straight and tell yourself your new mantra. I am proactive. Write it on a piece of paper and stick it on your refrigerator with one of those little magnet gizmos made for such things. Things don’t happen to you, you’re now going to take charge of your senior citizens job opportunities search and make things happen. Sit down at your table or desk, grab a tablet of paper and a pen and make a list of five topics. Understand that first of all this is your personal work sheet and is not available for public consumption. It’s not a resume or a pitch for employment. This is your outline for a proactive battle plan to find the perfect employment for you.
1. What kind of job do you really want. Don’t list employment that you suspect is available. Write down what you really and truly want to do.
2. List the jobs that you’ve actually held during your life. Did you deliver newspapers as a kid? Write it down and decipher the skills needed later.
3. List the jobs you actually performed for past employers. If you cleaned floors, washed windows, ran machinery, waited on customers, kept records; list them, they are building blocks for your action plan.
4. How did your personal activities at each employer affect the overall operation of the business?
5. This is a tough one and it will require giving some clarity of thought. Why did you leave each job? If you were terminated, it would be best to be less than forthright.
You’re not finished yet. Make a list of your hobbies. Don’t laugh! Think about it. Do you like bowling or fishing? How about gardening? Can you imagine the skills you’ve amassed from these endeavors, let alone the factual knowledge related to them. Are you a guy and do you do some of your automobile work yourself.
Think about all of this and then contact employers that would find your skills invaluable. Most important! There are senior citizens job opportunities all over the landscape. But only go after the ones your actually would enjoy doing.
Be proactive! After all is said and done, getting a job is in your hands alone.

They’ll be saying “I love you” in song — and they’ll be leaving hundreds of lucky romantics speechless.
On Wednesday and Thursday, February 13 and 14, a group of barbershop quartets will fan out across the Las Vegas Valley to deliver Singing Valentines to hundreds of special sweethearts. The sound of harmony will ring out in offices, restaurants, schools and homes throughout the city and surrounding communities. Wherever they appear, they’ll draw a crowd — and sometimes a few tears.
The quartets belong to the local Las Vegas Chapter of the 34,000-member Barbershop Harmony Society, which is headquartered in Nashville, TN.
A typical Singing Valentine costs $50 and includes two love songs sung in barbershop harmony, a personalized Valentines card and a beautiful red rose. Men and women alike are on the receiving end — with moving results.
“It’s especially fun to deliver a Singing Valentine from a woman to her husband or boyfriend,” says Dennis Johnson, of the Silver Statesmen Chorus. “Last year, my quartet went to an elementary school and caught a male teacher at lunchtime. He was stunned. His students and other teachers gathered around, and were ready to start razzing him — until they saw the tears welling up in his eyes.”
To order a Singing Valentine, contact the Silver Statesmen Chorus at 702-525-9484.
Orders can also be placed online at www.silverstatesmen.com.
The Way Out Christian Fellowship
Senior Pastor Earl Kennedy
My name is Earl Kennedy, I came to the Lord in 1991 leaving behind a lifestyle of drug addiction and witchcraft. I was lost and broken with no hope in life when God came to me. He sent me back to the streets that I came from to help others. We now have sober living homes for people who want help. They are able to start their lives over again with the Lord leading the way.
We have both men and women recovery homes up and running. The homes are set in a family atmosphere to give people something many are not used to. We have people staying anywhere between one month to 2 years. When they are ready to leave , then they go. Our goal for everyone who comes to us is that they never have to be addicted to anything again. Most are also restored to their own families. Above all else they leave with a relationship with the Lord that solves all their problems. This is a 24 hour a day job and the blessings that come with watching lives change in this manner are not measureable. God has blessed the houses and those who live in them.
We are in the process of opening a boarding school in the Las Vegas Valley. It is a place for children rescued from slavery. Most people know about this as child trafficking. Housing both sex and labor trafficked children, we will take children from preschool age through 17 years old. We will also take them from anywhere in the US or internationally. www.LionheartAcademy.org
The purpose of THE WAY OUT CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP is:
“For the equipping to the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves, and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him, who is the head, even Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by that which every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love”. (Ephesians 4:12-16)
STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe that there is one living and true GOD, eternally existing in three Persons: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit , equal in power and glory; that this tri-une God created all, upholds all and governs all.
We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired without error in the original manuscripts, and the infallible rule of faith and practice.
We believe in GOD THE FATHER, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through the SON, Jesus Christ.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth. His sinless life, His miracles and teachings, His death for our sins according to the Scriptures, His burial, His bodily resurrection, His finished work on the cross, His ascension into Heaven, and His perpetual intercession for His followers.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, Who came from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ; we believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all the Biblical gifts of the Spirit and all Biblical callings.
We believe that all People are sinners by nature and choice, and therefore, are under condemnation and therefore, in need of salvation and regeneration. We believe that eternal life and salvation is only by God’s grace through faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
We believe in the True Church, the living spirit body, of which Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons are members. “And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all”. (Ephesians 1:22-23NKVJ)
