Myth-Decrepit OR Educated Aging?


Myth-Decrepit is just that! Post 50? A "Baby Boomer"?   Does the color of your hair (or no hair atop your head)  mean you’re falling apart at the seams? No Way! Let's disprove THAT myth right now!

FACTS: Today, and into the future, a new vision of aging is on the horizon. Post-50-People as a cohort today wield clout. Influencers and Cultural Creatives dismiss outmoded aging stereotypes understanding that the power -- in sheer numbers--  can dissolve ageist attitudes.

Self-educated and certified with  first-hand knowledge of the ins-and-outs of aging, YOU  are a Mythbuster. YOU are here to say-that one need not choose a path down the rocky road of Falling-Apart-at-the-Seams.

of Falling-Apart-at-the-Seams.



So YOU have noted assorted pains and wellness challenges. And now, almost simultaneously YOU have come face-to-face (or should we say go head-to-head) with the age-old Myth-Decrepit! In ads targeted for the  "Youth Culture" one could be subject to a fear of falling apart bit-by-bit -- getting decrepit any day now.

That uneasy sense of being doomed to pain and impotency is hard to avoid if you believe media hype.


A negative storyline about what it is like to grow old  practically is unavoidable in a society where staying forever young has become the objective. People can sense that those over the hill myths actually whittle away at Post 50  peace of mind --  if they let that happen. Talk (and self-talk) about worst-case scenarios can creep up on a person.

The Myth-Decrepit can terrorize an aging person like the silent monster creeping up on a sleeping innocent. But is so NOT true.

It IS an outmoded "Over the Hill" Myth and is contrary to the New Vision of Aging that reveals  a clearer picture: You do NOT have to lose your health, your mind and/or your independence.

Wellness research tells us that the Myth Decrepit is just that- a myth. By paying attention to a healthy lifestyle, most older adults can and do live active, healthy lives.

Know that post-50 years mean status, well-being, and wisdom when we choose to Engage Age.

Keep Your Brain in Good Health

Research: Vitamin deficiencies account for many negative symptoms of aging.
Safe supplements may be an important addition to your regimen. Check out Vitamin B levels. Low levels can be related to forgetfulness. Vitamin b12 deficiency has shown to be related to hair loss. NOTE: Vitamin B12 deficiency may be common among vegetarians and vegans.

British researchers at Oxford University announced vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid lower levels of homocysteine, which may reduce Alzheimer's disease risk. Dr. David Smith of Oxford University in England said the amino acid homocysteine is linked to shrinkage of the brain.

More and more people in the "encore phases" of life happily look toward integrative health care.

Practitioners say this model works- regardless of a person's age. It is interesting to note that today, "boomers" and people in their late 60s and 70s actually are influencing age-friendly technologies and , as a consumer group, have a powerful  say in the direction of their own future.
