Male pattern baldness is mostly a function of age and genetics.

What I do for good health:

* Exercise, both cardio (sports, commuting) and strength training (weight and bodyweight exercises).
* Eat lots of healthy foods -- you know what they are: vegetables, whole fruits, nuts, beans, whole grains, fish (low contamination varieties).
* Avoid eating junk -- you know what they are: added sugar, hydrogenated oils, processed food high in both fats and carbohydrates.
* The above contribute to maintenance of low body fat percentage and good blood cholesterol levels.
* Brush and floss teeth.
* Sun exposure but avoidance of sunburn while outside doing sports, etc. (vitamin D).
* CDC recommended vaccines.
* No drugs or supplements other than rare instances such as dental work where typical anesthetic is used.

None of the above is exactly a secret.

Re: Lets share our health secrets/remedies?


The CRON diet calls for Calorie Restriction with Optimal Nutrition (CRON). It's not a secret but it might as well be because not too many people seem to be aware of it. And if they do become aware of it, most will get frightened just by thinking about it. Most people think it's too restrictive.

How can it be a secret if there's a book that explains it? "Beyond The 120 Year Diet" by Roy Walford.

I've been practicing this for many years and last week I got tested to find out what my "health age" is. This was done by volunteers at my local library. They checked many things like body fat percentage, blood pressure etc. Then I filled out a questionnaire about my lifestyle, telling that I'm a "vegan" and get a lot of exercise etc.

The result: My health age is 11 years less than my actual age. And here's something even more interesting: I had the same test done 10 years ago and my health age has only gone up by 4 years. If these tests can be believed, I only aged 4 years over the last 10 years.

It almost seems too good to be true but I like to think it's because I'm doing the right things. I don't doubt that genetics plays a part in this but rather than taking good genes for granted, I'm working to give my genes every possible advantage. (According to the study of epigenetics, genes can be turned on or off.) Let's keep the good genes turned on and the bad genes turned off. (For more information read, "The Biology Of Belief" by Bruce Lipton PhD.)

P.S. I don't practice the CRON diet exactly as it is explained in the book. The author gives the okay for eating meat but I'm on a plant based diet. His book also encourages people to take lots of viamins whereas I only take B-12 and D3 because blood tests have indicated a need for those.

Re: Lets share our health secrets/remedies?

@greenjuice -- thanks for the info, I am going to look into those supplements! And am looking into dry brushing my skin.

@tjlhb - Excellent! Many of those I do. Trying to cut sugar totally OUT!
Need to exercise. Very very important. Thank you.

@JohnR41 - Calorie restricted diets are becoming very popular and can be done safely. I practice them myself but there are times I don't. Organic life style for me -anything evil in moderation.

May I just add one thing that I have become aware of? Since I was diagnosed with skin cancer in 1988 it seems every little health issue is met by a team of "specialists" armed at the ready with their battery of ionizing radiation scans/xrays, etc. Please, don't be like me-- KEEP AWARE OF ALL TESTS THAT USE RADIATION. Nothing has been found - THANK YOU LORD -- but now, I am in the upper % for developing cancer later on because of all the scans and xrays that turned up nothing. There is enough of it in the background of our lives, why add more if it is unnecessary???

See if there is an alternative test to radiation. Please.
