MAIN Arrow to HealthHealth Arrow to Senior's HealthSenior Health

senior health information There's a lot to be said about getting older.

Along with savoring a lifetime of cherished memories, experience lends unique perspective on life challenges - about which many pampered 20-somethings haven't got a clue.

Yet aging also results in a roller coaster ride of aches and pains, and other new challenges to our physical, mental and emotional health.

At around age 40 (ask anyone with bifocals) the gradual slide into the golden years is marked by increasing demands on our attention to our health and well-being.

Slowly stepping away from the coffee and jelly donuts is one way to begin.

As a sedentary lifestyle can even lay low the young among us, a calorie conscious diet and regular exercise are two issues that should be given special consideration, especially for those of us who want to remain active. Exercise will not only make you feel better but can help ward off serious bouts with diabetes and heart disease

Poor diets can be supplemented with vitamins and minerals, along with other alternative health remedies that can decrease your chances of frequent trips to the doctor.

Starting now, you can begin a senior exercise program and arm yourself with information about arthritis, cataracts, or glaucoma (and other more serious conditions and disease of special concern to the 50-plus generation), with ways to avoid them or at least lessen their effects.

Just up ahead, find out more at top sites elsewhere offering health tips, medical information, stress management, and more reliable information for active seniors who want to live about living longer, healthier and happier.

More about health, exercise and diet for seniors around the Web:

American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) - Health - Although the AARP has lowered their age limit to 50, the concerns that are addressed are relevant to seniors at any age with feature articles, sections devoted to diet, stress management, health and prevention and more together with very active message boards to exchange views and advice.

SeniorMag - Not focused specifically on health issues, but covers the topic well.

ElderNet - Health - This one has information for 50+ "elderly" but the information does seem truly geared to those senior issues that come with a longer life span. Good info on finding a doctor with experience in elder care.
