Secret to Staying Fit and Young at Age 70

 By: Mamiko Ito
When running your own business, you need a lot of stamina and energy. It is not like working for a regular Job. For example, when you wake up with a bad headache from the previous night's party, you could just call in for a sick day. But if you are your own boss, not being in the best condition could cost you and your business a lot of money; especially when you have an important meeting or speaking event on that day.

Changing your eating habit is the best anti-aging tips. Your body, skin and health are direct reflection of your diet. If you want to stay young, healthy and energetic, eat energy-rich food such as fresh organic vegetables and fruits. Processed food, canned food and meat are dead food filled with chemicals, high sodium, growth hormone and antibiotics, and they slowly kill our body. Watch Paul McCartney's video "If Slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian" to know the dirty secret behind the curtain. No wonder more and more diseases, obesity, cancer, crime and violence are on the rise and affecting more people around us.

About two years ago I made a significant change in my diet and it completely changed my life. Now I have more energy and I don't need to worry about my weight. My skin is in great condition and I don't need to use expensive cosmetics. I used to catch cold quite easily, but now I hardly fall sick, and even if I do get sick, I recover fairly quickly. What is the secret? Well one of the biggest changes I made was to stop eating meat and dairy products. After I watched a documentary about how farm animals are treated and how destructive it is to our eco-system as well as our body to maintain a meat and dairy-based diet, I decided to change my eating habits, and I have never regretted my decision. I'm proud of myself for opting for sustainable lifestyle and I become healthy as a result.

A couple of years ago, I've got to know an amazing woman named Mimi Kirk from San Diego. She was selected as the sexiest vegetarian woman above 50 at age 70! She is a gorgeous and lovely woman with a beautiful spirit, and the secret on her health and longevity is a raw food diet. Today I want to share this mouth-watering Key Lime Pie, Ice Cream or Pudding - it's perfect for a hot sunny day!

Medical equipment is costly and often requires a great deal of budgeting to purchase. Even if the facility is able to find refurbished medical equipment it should be assumed that it will be rather pricey. Gently used medical equipment that has gone through stringent refurbishing is one way that facilities can help cut costs.
There are many critical tools that are needed for doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals in order to make proper diagnosis. Healthcare professionals are better prepared for medical emergencies when supported by medical devices that are functioning as they should be.
