How can YOU tell if YOUR anti-aging protocol is as perfect as possible?
Please keep in mind that - results of longevity studies - the correctly done exercise modality accounts for 50% of the entire anti-aging success.

And how this fits into the picture of WORLDHEALTH:
PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW! Global Warming – the science, EXTREME urgency to take countermeasures, and associated blunders – are very basic and easily explained.

Data presented by Dr. John Greist, Wisconsin University, and H. C. Brown, North West University at the ACSM meetings, made it clear that depression should be classified as an exercise-deficiency disease. Test scores documented that when patients followed the basic ACSM minimum exercise guidelines, depression disappeared in 80 - 90% of people.
In studying the effect of exercise on depression, Dr. Greist used the SCL-90 Depression Score to define the degree of depression. As shown in the graph below (sorry, not able to copy graph, but it's reproduced in the reference given below), a student who suffered from depression quickly improved after starting an exercise program. She jogged for twenty to thirty minutes, three times a week. When the student tripped and fell during jogging, unable to continue jogging, depression re-appeared quickly. After some coaching, to do swimming instead of jogging, depression scores decreased once again.
Of note is the addition of nutritional counseling which decreased depression further to 90+%. Nutrition counselors have observed that people who suffer from depression often have a high intake of sugar. Amino acid ratios in the blood are affected by sugar, which then alters neurotransmitters in the brain and induces depression. Along with an exercise regimen that includes resistance exercise to build muscle (as buffer against sugar imbalances), one should focus on better nutrition via a drastic reduction in sugar intake.

One herbal solution saffron extract

A number of well-designed clinical trials have been conducted to evaluate the efficacy of saffron as an antidepressant. 30mg saffron daily (both petals and stigma) appear to be effective in reducing depressive symptoms in persons with mild to moderate depression. Some studies suggest that saffron is more effective than placebo and at least equivalent to prescription antidepressant such as fluoxetine or imipramine. Saffron’s antidepressant properties are related to serotonin metabolism.
