Longevity system reserve training
Train your reserves and live at least 200 years or longevity like … sports
Modern man lives on average 60 – 80 years. It seems that he has just begun to live, and it is time to go to eternal rest. It’s a shame, but even the ancient Greeks – Pelasgians believed that, dying at 70 years old, a person dies in childhood, and they themselves lived more than 200 years.
With the fact that a healthy lifestyle is good, no one argues, but for many it is a rather boring task and they prefer to get sick, grow old, die, but just not strain. But what if, in order to get carried away by this “boring” occupation, use such a wonderful incentive as sports excitement. What kind of sports does not exist, appropriate training and please – excellent results. So let’s imagine that the process of conscious longevity is also a sport and we will compete in life expectancy. Lived to 80 years – you can congratulate yourself on your first personal record. Years of special training were not in vain. You feel young, vigorous, full of energy and strength. And again, daily simple training, which has long been a part of life and delivers incomparable pleasure. That’s 90 years old – an age that is considered senile, but you still have good memory, vision, hearing, young elastic skin, mobile joints, strong muscles, and a slim figure. And finally, the joke about how hard it is to live only the first 100 years, not a joke, but a reality, but unlike other hundred-year-old residents who are ready to die at any moment, you are perfectly prepared for life.
Sport is, first of all, training, but what to train in this case? In the process of aging, the reserve capabilities of all our organs and systems melt every year.
Here is the answer: if you don’t want to grow old, train your reserves. To train means to use regularly, and they are used primarily when something is missing. The body may lack food, water, oxygen, information. Their conscious, artificial limitation stimulates the use of reserve capabilities i.e. their workout. We call this process briefly: reserve training and see what exercises can be used for this purpose.
Exercise 1 – Dosed Fasting
Limit the intake of food and get a wonderful, known since ancient times, method of restoring the body – fasting. This is a temporary, voluntary, complete refusal of food. The purpose of such fasting is the transition to internal nutrition, i.e. use of reserves. This is possible only under the condition of a one-time, polnog about the cessation of nutrition. Only water, and as clean as possible. A glass of juice, for example, drunk during this period prevents the transition to internal nutrition, blocks the mechanisms of balanced consumption of reserves and nothing good comes of it. The results of the studies suggest that, with complete short starvation, eating with your own reserves fully satisfies all the needs of the body and is even more complete than regular nutrition. All the necessary substances had already been assimilated, “laid out on shelves”, and now they do not require a considerable amount of energy and time to participate in the metabolism. You can read about how to fast and eat properly in the popular books of well-known fasting experts and nutritionists.
One of the handbooks might be Paul Bragg’s The Miracle of Fasting. Here is what he wrote about this:
“Every week, without a single pass, I spend a 24-hour or 36-hour fast. In addition, I fast for 7-10 days four times a year. For many years, when I follow this schedule and keep myself in excellent condition, I live like a revived dynamo. My day is saturated more than a year with another person. I have unlimited energy for work and games. I never get tired, never sleepy. I am constantly active both mentally and physically. I have enough time and energy for everything. ” This famous American died at age 95, doing … surfing – a difficult and dangerous sport. According to the conclusion of the pathologists, his organs and blood vessels were in excellent condition.
Exercise 2 – Dry Fasting
Now let’s see what happens with the so-called “dry” fasting, when we stop not only eating, but also drinking. Water makes up about 70% of the body, comes with drink and as part of food, but in addition, about 400 ml per day is formed internally as a result of fat oxidation. With “dry” fasting, the amount of this metabolic water increases significantly and for some time satisfies the needs of the body. Studies by the physiologist Adolf showed that at rest at a comfortable temperature a person can not drink up to 10 days. After the earthquake in Mexico City in 1985. a boy was found under the rubble. He survived, although he did not eat or drink for 13 days.
With a “dry” fasting, our body becomes like such an amazing creation of nature as a camel, which can wander through the desert without food and water until it runs out of reserves – a hump with reserves of fat.
Our “hump” is excess fat, atheroma, atherosclerotic plaques in blood vessels and other “garbage” that the body is not able to remove under normal conditions. According to some reports, the regenerating and purifying effect of dry fasting is 2-3 times higher than when fasting in water. The author has checked this on himself and it seems that this is indeed so. Once a week, he began to declare a 36-hour “dry” hunger strike (starting at 24 hours on the water) and after each of them he felt great: he felt a surge of energy and strength, his memory improved, his eyesight, hearing, smell, taste increased, his taste increased working capacity. We will call this exercise “Camel-36” and take up the calculations: 4 times a month for 36 hours is 6 days of “dry” fasting, which in terms of effectiveness is equal to about 15 days of fasting with water. It turns out that, as if for half a month the body is in a state of purification and recovery. The aging process is slowing down.
Exercise 3 – Oxygen Starvation
With a lack of oxygen, hypoxia occurs, i.e. oxygen starvation. The complete lack of oxygen leads to irreversible changes and death, and the time counts for minutes and seconds. Due to such a hard addiction, a powerful antihypoxic system exists in the body. It provides a response to both short-term and long-term oxygen starvation. In case of rapid hypoxia, the heart begins to beat faster and more powerful, pumping more blood; a reserve amount of blood comes from the blood “depot” – the spleen; the vessels of the brain, heart, lungs expand – vital organs that are most sensitive to oxygen deficiency; the level of hormones of the adrenal cortex increases, etc.
In case of hypoxia, for example, in high mountains, the mass of lung tissue increases, new capillaries form in all organs and tissues, the number of red blood cells increases, and the content of myoglobin increases (reserve oxygen in muscles), oxygen-free energy metabolism is activated, hormone production is increased, the number of active mitochondria per unit cell mass increases, i.e. general energy level rises. In the process of aging, everything happens exactly the opposite: the energy level decreases, the blood supply to organs deteriorates, hormone production decreases, etc., so judge for yourself how important the antihypoxic system training is for the long-liver.
Artificially hypoxia can be achieved in various ways. The most accessible is the so-called ventilac and hypoxia – breathing exercises with reduced lung ventilation. In the literature you can find a large number of respiratory systems with a delay in inhalation, exhalation, deceleration of exhalation, etc. All of them will be effective because they give short-term hypoxia and train the antihypoxic system. An example is the breathing exercise of the Indian yogis “kevala – kumbhaka”, which means “absolutely calm pause”. Exercise consists in the complete cessation of breathing against the background of the most relaxed muscles. A pause lasts as long as you can stand and is repeated several times a day.
Less accessible, but more effective training for the antihypoxic system is exogenous hypoxia. It occurs due to a decrease in the so-called. partial pressure of oxygen during prolonged exposure to high mountains.
The effect is described above, but at least 3-4 weeks are required to achieve it.
