Excluding Botox, Vitamin C or placenta shots (human or sheep or otherwise) which are not only exorbitant to maintain, and unknown effects of long term use, these are the 6 most natural, inexpensive and safest way to slow down the effects of aging.

You will be quite surprise to know how easy the following ways are to shed years from your age.

Include turmeric in your spicy curry food.  This bright yellow spice is an ingredient found in brown mustard and is an very effective anti-inflammatory remedy for the skin.  This is according to dermatologist Dr Nicholas Perricone, M.D., author of Dr Perricone's 7 Secrets to Beauty, Health, and Longevity.  

Wrinkles, fine lines are caused by years of sun exposure, environmental pollution and poor diet and that is why we age. And the more we expose our face and bodies to these factors, the faster we will age. Turmeric helps our bodies to activate the skin's internal anti-inflammatory chemicals that will combat wrinkles from forming.

Protect Your Eyes

Do you often experience dry eyes?  Chances are you are not blinking a healthy 25 times a minute because you are focused on driving on the highway or working on a computer screen for long periods of time.  

Over time, these activities can  contribute to the age-related vision problems that affect many seniors. Early prevention can halt more serious eye problems that can lead to blindness.  Wear big sunglasses to block out the retina-damaging UV rays.

Eat one serving or half a cup of cooked dark leafy veggies such as kale or mustard leaves to fend off the onset of macular degeneration, a leading cause of age-related blindness.

Protect Your Heart

Off all the computers, laptops, mobile phones, tablets!  According to a 2006 poll by private research firm The Conference Boards,  a whooping 60 percent of Americans did not have any plans to take time off from work that year.  It is the highest record in the history of the poll's 28 years.

Working too hard, the chronic stress that comes with it and without any break time will take it's toll on your heart.  Heart diseases are the number one killer of women, says a study in the British medical journal. 

Just remember that work will always be there and that the world or your workplace will not suddenly collapse just because you are on a well deserved holiday may help you keep your life in perspective.

Adopt the 'Work Smart, Not Work Hard" attitude and you will find that your life has more meaning when you get to do other things that you love and with the people that you love.  

Age-related memory loss affects millions over 65.  More than five million Americans today suffer from Alzheimer's disease alone.  

To counter such diseases, studies show that by doing brain teasing puzzles such as sudoku or take a class where you have to remember facts or join a book club can keep your brain active, fit and sharp.  According to Dr Gary Small, M.D. author of The Longevity Bible, solving puzzles and memorizing information can regain more youthful brain power in just 3 months.  And you will fell up to 20 years younger!

Studies show that you can increase bone mass and avoid osteoporosis which is a common brittle bone disease in women just by doing some weight lifting.  Use a pair of one to two pound dumbbells or two mineral water bottles to strengthen your arm and back muscles.

According to Dr Lynn Anderson, Ph.D. creator of Dr. Lynn's Anti-Aging Workout for Every Body: Flex & Tone fitness DVD.

"Studies prove that strength training 3 days a week is essential to building bone mass."

If you are already consuming the daily calcium intake of 1,200 mg, strengthening your muscles with weights will boost its effects.

Lets face it.  As we age, the average adult woman will gain a pound even if she does not overeat.  Once your body goes into menopause,  your metabolic rate will slow down considerably and require even fewer calories to keep you slim.  

However, according to a research done by Harvard University, they found that prayer, which is similar to other forms of repetitive and meditative practices such as yoga can actually help to keep the fat away by balancing your metabolism.  

By praying or meditating, the result is a calming effect that lowers your brain's production of cortisol, the stress hormone that can make you want to overeat.

The Pipe Piper blows a lively tune,

Melody so rich, you will surely swoon,

Through the narrow street and alleyway,

The rat did not come out to play

The cat did come and it did sat

I bet curiosity kills the cat.

Listening, a pair of furry ears,

Piper boy takes away its fears.

An audience of one may not be dandy,

But, the cat will come in handy,

He sends the cat to hunt the pesky rats

They hide in the sewage and in the gaps.

The Pipe Piper work will soon be done,

He and the cat has become one. 

I lost the bet.

The Piper did not kill the cat!
