Chronic aging is embracing 125 million Americans with its unhealthy lifestyle habits. Chronic diseases are the biggest threat to longevity. It is estimated that 61 million of aging American have up to five active chronic diseases. And they are being told by researches and medical experts that most are unavoidable and irreversible. Why? Because “Modern Medicine” makes its revenue based on this theory. Pills and treatment are the protocol. Clearly, 80% of the nation’s $2.7 trillion health care costs are attributable to chronic illnesses causing the chronic aging process.
Chronic Aging is defined as the process of growing older rather than better … we would like to know who made that rule. Therefore, the primary audience for the book is unhealthy people especially those in the high-demand health, technology, manufacturing, travel, hospitality, and all service sectors who want to better their lives. Also, a little known fact is that divorce reduces life expectancy due to the change in behaviors after the breakup of the family unit. Researchers have found that unhealthy behaviors also contribute to the likelihood of chronic aging and mental breakdowns. They predict that staying married contributes to aging slower than divorced couples.
Your Real Age versus your Birth Age is a good indicator of whether you should avoid or reverse Chronic Aging … to avoid is to change before Chronic Aging starts and to reverse is to make up for the time you’ve lost to unhealthy lifestyle habits. Thus, you need to know your Real Age in relation to your birth age. Then make a plan to either avoid or reverse where you are and how you’re aging.
Our new book "How to Live Forever (get what we got)" The 12 marriage vows and youthful Habits for changing lifestyles is self-help or “self-health” for younger, middle-aged readers and seniors who want to be as happy and healthy as possible—for as long as possible—by improving their lifestyle and habits. It’s a fun and easy-to-use book based on our proven 12 marriage Vows and Lifestyle Habits that’s designed to help readers (and those they love) live younger, stronger, longer (or at least avoid a stay in a nursing home!
Also we researched how divorce affects chronic aging and found that it is a leading contributor to aging too fast due to change in behaviors and stress. We believe our 60 year marriage is proof that underlying the 12 Vows and Habits we report in our new book are working.
We, on the other hand, have practiced these 12 Marriage Vows and Lifestyle Habits for twenty years then started a new business at the age of 70, to teach aging Americans how to avoid or reverse chronic aging in our three nursing homes. It was so successful we decided to spread the secrets to aging Americans that find themselves unhealthy and unhappy ... thinking and acing old before it is time to be incarcerated in a nursing home..
The book also provides strategies for excellence in physical and mental personal habits, that will benefit middle aged to older Americans by reversing Chronic Aging, while seeking to grow their careers now and in the future. We also believe that this philosophy works for younger Americans wanting to stay married and healthy to avoid Chronic Aging. At the same time we realize that staying married may well be with a new nuclear family that bonds for the betterment of all involved.
We also base the Rhoads 12 marriage Vows and Lifestyle Habit program on our own success and our efforts in servicing and owning nursing homes where we helped thousands of nursing home patients rehabilitate themselves, improve or restore their functionality, and be discharged from nursing homes back to their own homes and community-based programs. Unheard of in the current floundering long term care business model. Our 12 youthful Habits are self-help or “self-health” for younger, middle-aged readers and seniors who want to be as happy and healthy as possible—for as long as possible—by improving their lifestyle and habits.
As for reversing Chronic Aging, when we mention living longer most unhealthy people, if truthful, cringe about getting old, sick and unhappily in a nursing home. Why? Because our culture doesn’t focus on better health for a happy longevity; on the contrary we opt for health maintenance and pills for surviving the journey. “If I have to suffer I don’t want anything to do with it. I would rather live my way now and not worry about later!” How’s that going to work for you when you are old before your time, sick, unhappy in a nursing home for the last ten years. It’s about the quality of your entire life not the number on your birthday card.
Part of the prevention of Chronic Aging and Disease is a strong marriage and family connection to better health habits. Understandably, some marriages won't work and contribute to poor healthful habits but the impact on the health and welfare for the children may make it more important to stay married and change lifestyles and remake the marriage vows in light of the consequences.
It’s a fun and easy-to-use book based on our proven 12 Fountain of Youth Habits that’s designed to help readers (and those they love) live younger, stronger, longer (or at least avoid a stay in a nursing home)! Ironically, the elderly will suffer the most under the current and proposed health care plans. Chronic illnesses will be excluded from most health plans and left to Medicare and Medicaid to pay for. It’s so true that our 12 marriage vows and health preservation habits that create a healthy lifestyle for aging that could prevent trillions of dollars wasted on ineffective treatment of chronic illness
The Fountain of Youth Habit program covers all twelve areas of life that people concerned about aging want and need to know about. And the relavant style, personal stories, and unique format breaks the mold of the typical “how to” book. In addition, we love life—and each other. Our positive male/female perspective makes the book more interesting. And, we’re the ultimate example of what’s possible when you follow our “Marriage Vows and Youthful Lifestyle Habits.
Most experts who write books about health and wellness: 1) Don’t focus specifically on how a successful marriage can prevent premature aging, 2) Don’t propose how to prevent chronic illness as a solution to habitual problems such as mood, diet, exercise or sex drive, 3) Speak in boring and difficult-to-understand theories and “medical-speak”, 4) Offer just one type of solution, often in the form of a pill that, nine times out of ten, doesn’t fix the underlying problem, 5) Don’t fully understand the aging audience they’re prescribing solutions for, and/or 6) Aren’t credible due to lack of tangible evidence that their offerings do work. Instead, here we are in our late seventies, married for 60 years, living younger, acting younger and being younger … the true Fountain of Youth (where middle age is 70 and old age is 100).
