Nowadays, there are just too many theories, studies, beliefs, schools of thought, etc. on what is really healthy and what is not. Some work wonders for others and don't work at all for others. After one 'superfood' is lauded and bandied about as the ultimate panacea, another set of 'studies' will show up saying 'oops, that wasn't healthy after all... THIS is what's healthy.' It is never-ending. And if we follow and follow whatever we read and hear, we will end up going nuts.
So best thing is to simplify your life. Eat only what you need, not any more, take only what you need, nothing more. Be kind, honest and good. At some point sooner or later, we are going to leave this temporary body so there is no point trying to find immortality, or close to it, in this or that food or therapy or lifestyle. It is best to live as close to what's natural as what's possible and practical, and spend time looking for purpose and meaning in life. For if there is no meaning, there is no life.

Friends, if you want to see what happens if a human being is born knowing
not with the mind but with the heart, someone who is totally unconditionally trusting of everyone and everything:

Go read about a condition called Williams Syndrome.

Persons with this condition are biologically incapable of distrust.

Persons they are born unconditionally trustful, wearing their
hearts on their sleeves.

What is the result:

Most persons with Williams Syndrome need ongoing protection because they know no boundaries, cannot distinguish between safe and unsafe and are vulnerable to
the worst forms of exploitation.

Journalist Jennifer Latson notes that the state of mind that characterizes Williams Syndrome is equated with holiness in many religions and cultures.

But what are the real world consequences of living this way every moment of one's life?
