Macrobiotics and old age

Macrobiotics believes that old age begins with 70 years. For those who, from a young age, in the middle years and at a later age, live in harmony with the laws of the Universe, there is no need for a special diet. They can eat anything. Everything can be used in the macrobiotic sense of the world: living
for many years in a dynamic equilibrium, Yin-Yang is able to perfectly control itself. His high level of common sense guides the choice of food and drink, as he knows how to eat flexibly and eat whatever he wants.
Beginners in Macrobiotics around the age of 60 should follow my basic guidelines for people of all ages, remembering the following tips:
1. Reduce salt intake, take it very little, compared to the young.

2. Eliminate oily and fatty foods (animal fats).
3. Use minimum vegetable oil instead.
You will be delighted to learn that many were cured in old age and remained active up to 80 years.

The essence of advanced macrobiotics can be expressed by the phrase: live as close to nature as possible. In winter, take the cold and be friends with it. In summer, enjoy the warmth. In spring, admire the flowers. Compose verses about the moon in the fall. Live with the feeling that you are the fruit picker of all your past years. Refuse from trifles, take an interest in nature, vastness and unity with all that exists.
A man in his years spends his days in giving his personal happiness to others. With this feeling, old age is the most joyful time of life. Such old age is a reward for following the law of Nature. If we want to end our happy life, from an early age we are best prepared for this. Then we will be sure that this is a time of joy in which there is both harvest and the distribution of happiness. Who wants something more?

Macrobiotics and old age

  1. AH in the elderly.
    The results of randomized trials indicate that antihypertensive therapy reduces the risk of CVD and mortality in elderly patients with systolic-diastolic hypertension and ISAG. The principles of treatment for elderly patients with hypertension are the same as in the general population. Treatment should begin with lifestyle changes. Limiting consumption of salt and weight loss in this category of patients have
    {foto62} Whatever life teaches us, But the heart believes in miracles. There is non-decreasing power, There is imperishable beauty. And the withering earthly Flowers will not touch the unearthly, And from the midday heat the Dew will not dry out on them. And this faith will not deceive the One who only lives by it, Not everything that flourished here will fade, Not everything that was here will pass! But this faith is for few
  3. Nutrition in old age and old age
    According to the age classification approved by the Congress of Gerontologists and Geriatricians, the population over 60 years old is divided into three age categories: elderly people - from 61 years old to 74 years old; persons of senile age - 75 years and older, long-livers - 90 years and older. Aging is a slow process of accumulation of age-related changes manifesting at all levels of the whole organism. TO
  4. Prevention of sudden cardiac death in the elderly
    Artificial cardioverter-defibrillator should not be used in elderly people whose life expectancy in connection with underlying or concomitant diseases is less than 1 year. To reduce the overall mortality in elderly people, it is necessary to use blockers more actively.
  5. Features of anesthesia in the elderly and senile
    According to the WHO definition, men and women who have reached the age of over 65 years are considered to be elderly, the period of old age is from 75 to 90 years, over 90 years - long-livers. Of particular importance to the anesthesiologist are age-related changes in basal metabolism, decreased compensatory and adaptive capabilities of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, and liver and kidney function. To 70 years
    The general principles of prescribing medicines for the elderly do not differ from those for other age groups, however, the use of the drug in lower doses is usually required (Bezrukov V., Kuprash L., 2005). In patients of this age category, adverse reactions during pharmacotherapy develop in general more often than in other age groups (table. 4.1). Last connected
  7. Features of nutrition of the elderly
    In connection with the transition of the economy of our country to market relations at the end of the 20th century, the most important demographic indicators of the population sharply worsened: fertility, life expectancy, mortality, indicators of the physical development of the younger generation, which was due to a significant decrease in the standard of living of the bulk of the population. Already there is a sharp aging of the population, as in
  8. The use of anti-infective chemotherapy drugs in the elderly
    The high incidence of infectious pathology in the elderly, along with its unfavorable prognosis, justifies the widespread use of AMP in them. The latter are one of the most frequently prescribed (about 40%) drugs in specialized departments of extended stay of elderly patients. However, the appointment of AMP in older age groups is not always clinically justified. Decision making on
    In elderly people, the frequency of infections with MEP is significantly increased, which is associated with complicating factors: benign prostatic hyperplasia in men and a decrease in estrogen levels in women during menopause. Therefore, treatment of infections of MVP should include not only the use of AMP, but also the correction of the described risk factors. With benign prostatic hyperplasia
    In the elderly, renal function is often reduced, which requires special care when using aminoglycosides. It should be remembered that in such patients, vancomycin elimination is slowed down (half-life is 7.5 days). There is also a high frequency of HP when used
  11. Meaningful life orientations of elderly people
    Nikolai Zabolotsky has a line: How the world is changing! And how I myself am changing! Only by one name I am called, -In fact, what they call me, -Not I alone. There are a lot of us. I'm alive. Meaningful life orientations, like any mental formations, have their own dynamics. In the process of a person’s life, life-meaning orientations change in content, emotional coloring, and regulatory contribution to
  12. Features of the course and management of the postoperative period in elderly and senile patients
    Most women undergoing surgical surgical treatment, especially when performing high-volume operations, are in old and senile age. This should be taken into account when managing them in the postoperative period. People of the discussed age have certain biological and physiological changes (gerontological) of all organs and systems, which determine the specifics
  13. Hygiene of a woman in a transitional menopause and in old age
    In the body of a woman throughout her life, complex processes continuously replacing each other occur, covering all spheres of her life. These processes are a reflection of age-related changes inherent in all living things. The years of childhood are replaced by an exciting youth, energetic maturity and, finally, rich life experience in a later period of life. The period of gradual fading
  14. Commentary on Macrobiotics
    The principles of nutrition have always been reflected in the philosophical teachings and medical practice of the peoples of the East. Among them is the original system of healing created in the first half of the 20th century by the Japanese doctor George Osawa. Built on the connection between spirit and matter, it differs significantly from European healing systems based on the principles of natural hygiene. Title
    The path to health and happiness is open to all, you just need to practice as hard as theory. Any theory, whether scientific, religious or philosophical, is of little use if it is difficult to understand or unsuitable for practice in everyday life. On the other hand, any art, deed or practice can have undesirable, dangerous consequences, if not supported by lasting

    By 2040, people aged 65 and over will make up 24% of the total population, 50% of the health budget will be spent on their treatment. Half of these people will need surgery, and their advanced age will triple the risk of perioperative death. It is necessary to know the anatomical, physiological and pharmacological characteristics of the elderly in order to successfully anesthetize them. Between the elderly and
  18. Arrhythmias in the elderly and the elderly
    Atrial fibrillation About 70% of all AFs occur at the age of 65–85 years at a close frequency in men and women (Figure 215). An increase in the frequency of arrhythmias is associated with such risk factors for arrhythmia as left ventricular dysfunction and heart failure, arterial hypertension, coronary heart disease. AF is an independent risk factor for mortality (Benjamin EJ, et al., 1998). In persons of older age
  19. Anatomical and physiological characteristics of the elderly
    Cardiovascular System It is important to distinguish between normal age-related changes and diseases (Table 45-2). For example, atherosclerosis is a disease - healthy elderly people do not. In contrast, a decrease in arterial elasticity due to media fibrosis is a manifestation of the normal PROBLEM 45-1. The similarities between young children and the elderly, distinguishing them from the rest
  20. Case study: an elderly patient with a hip fracture
    An 86-year-old patient living in a boarding house for the elderly is planning an open reposition and internal fixation of the hip fracture. How to assess the risk of perioperative complications? The risk of anesthesia is more dependent on concomitant diseases than on chronological age. During the preoperative examination, special attention should be paid to the detection of diseases,
