Natural medicine does not cause drowsiness and works with the body to help you.
Natural medicine, made from natural ingredients, because of its anti-bacterial effects, is used by many senior citizens in place of traditional medicine to assist in the cure their ailments.
Natural is not about being a health freak, but more about being a health conscious person, making the natural health lifestyle work for and with you.

Recent studies seem to have confirmed that an increased intake of water and the proper immune enhancing nutrients offer the best defence against most infections. Water please note! Not alcoholic drinks. In fact one of the most common causes of headaches is lack of proper hydration.
Even back pain can be caused by a lack of fluids. Spinal discs which are filled with fluid act as shock absorbers in our spinal column and when they are not hydrated they deflate and provide less absorption placing the load on the shell of the disk instead of using fluid . Another effects of the fluid level in disks can be lack of movement, moving your head around and moving your upper body around while sitting at a desk can help alleviate this and allow the discs to become rehydrated.
High blood pressure or hypertension an be caused by a lower blood volume from dehydration. Its a bit obvious but since our blood is over 80% water it can be, from a volume point of view, very susceptible to changes in hydration.
As a senior citizen you will be able to enjoy the pleasures of life with a body that functions at its optimum for a good few years yet, once you start living a natural life, you start feeling better; and that is crucial in dealing with the everyday stresses and strains of the senior citizen growing ever older.
