Page 200 of 3rd book about Breaking aging code: facts and myths in our 60s by Connie Dello Buono
While in the office of my Chiropractor who is in his 30s, I said I will just have to write a book instead of going back to school in my 60s. We have learned many lessons in life about our own health and what works and doesn’t work. It is our duty to share. I told him that I once was in a car accident in hwy 17 in Santa Cruz and had a pelvic fracture and then got pregnant nine months later. He said my pelvis and legs are not balance. I noticed it too as I always inspect my feet and legs and my senior clients I cared for as a caregiver for our feet and legs tell us how long we can live when in hospice care.
Days before my mother died, I saw dark spots on her ankle as she fights liver cancer to the end. Many senior clients cared for by caregivers show similar signs of dark coloration in feet, legs, arms, lips and other parts of the body including hardening of the stomach.
Our body changes and adopts to the environment we live. Asking myself why my knee pain and foot cysts came just now that I’m in my 60s. The ER of El Camino Hospital found calcification in my shoulder thru x-rays which is my cue to rest and get more magnesium and vitamin C. They also saw extra heartbeat, another cue for me to rest and take care of my body thru yoga, sauna, red light therapy and more walking and sunshine. I have been to their ER lately after hiking uphill for 2 hrs and didn’t get enough hydration and electrolytes.
My daughter and son complained of the many dietary supplements in my apartment. Am I proactive or just helping my body be stronger to fight what will later be chronic? Cancer runs in my family with my mom who died of liver cancer at 83 and my father of lung cancer at 64.
It is not late to be healthy and take control of our own bodies. We owe it to the next generation to walk our talk, to be there for them when they need us and to impart wisdom.
