10. Sleep: No more or less than 7 to 8 hours/day. Avoid reading or T.V. in bed. Yes, warm milk before bedtime actually works! Nice going ‘grandma’!

9. A daily vitamin, 1 aspirin, Coenzyme Q10, vitamin D, vitamin B5 or pantothenic acid, D-ribose, resveratrol, and omega 3’s (fish oil) are well established as having efficacy. Let’s stick with proven winners.

8. Consider Stem Cell self donation and preservation for future use treating debilitating diseases–particularly w/ a strong family history of a disease such as diabetes or coronary artery disease. Treatments are 3 to 5 years away. This is the bleeding edge of medicine for the future.

7. Yearly medical screenings: Mammograms, colonoscopy, full yearly lab panels that evaluate cholesterol,kidney etc., dexa scan for osteoporosis, Blood pressure, urinalysis and full eval. for diabetes, and prostate are the minimum. Self breast and testes exams are great for screening and might be fun.

6. Cognate. Play games, cards, chess, learn a new language, try crossword puzzles, music lessons or just good old reading. Anything to keep those brain neurons firing is all that’s needed. all the broccoli in the grocery won’t strengthen the brain the way intellectual pursuits will.

5. Stress. It’s like air; it’s here to stay. Decreasing and managing it is crucial to decreasing total body inflammation. Use 30 min./day of walking, meditation, sitting and watching any aspect of nature. Try to accept that controlling our lives and environment is an impossible goal. Stress is inevitable, but chaos is optional.

4. Appetite: Calorie restriction has been shown to increase longevity. 1200 to 1500 calories per day is the goal. Don’t like counting calories? Use the Glycemic index and choose foods less than G.I. 65 (www.mendosa.com). The truth? As you eat, you are and as you think, you will become.

3. Give. Give to others, give to yourself (yes, even an occassional hot fudge sundae!), give to those who need and most of all, give yourself to others. Learn to give the two most precious gifts that you have. You and Time.

2. Activity. Try the SOS formula. Six out of seven days, do 20 min. of aerobics (eg. walking, swimming etc.) and 10 min. of strength training. 30 minutes. That’s all you need for health. What about the 7th day? See you on the hammock!

AND the number 1 health pearl is: Avoid toxins. Tobacco, sugar, more than 2 alcoholic drinks per day, carbonated drinks, and sex (just kidding!).
