Fucoidan, from brown seaweeds, offers an anti-HIV function and Immunoregulation by Dr. Susana Trujillo

Fucoidan- sulfated polysaccharides from brown seaweeds like Mozuku, Mekabu and Fucus – has been shown to inhibit human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection.

Fucoidan directly affects the secretion of extracellular matrix proteins, influences the proliferation of cells, can activate apoptosis and support the immune function.”

— Dr. Susana Trujillo

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, January 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — It is shown that the sulfated polysaccharides in Fucoidan inhibit infection of both CD4+ and CD4- cell lines by HIV and that they inhibit HTLV-1 and, to a lesser extent, the simian retrovirus, MPMV, which use receptors other than CD4.2 In contrast to semisynthetic sulfated polysaccharides, natural brown seaweed polysaccharides (Fucoidan) do not show any visible anticoagulant activity at therapeutically administrable doses. 1 Advantages of the brown seaweed polysaccharides are their natural extraction process, wide spectrum of antiviral activity, absence of cytotoxic effects, no side effects during long-term use, and good absorbbability.3,4

The Immune System

The immune system is the body's defense against infectious organisms and other invaders. The immune system is made up of:

• Physical barriers: such as intact skin and mucous membranes.
• Chemical barriers: such as stomach acid and antibacterial substances in body fluids.
• Organs and cells: such as tonsils lymph glands and a variety of white blood cells.

How AIDS develops

In the presence of HIV, the immune system is slowly disrupted. HIV kills cells in the lymph nodes (small glands filled with immune cells that trap foreign organisms) and in other sites. This affects the balance of the immune system.5 Then, the virus levels in the blood and the lymph nodes increase because the immune system cannot keep up with the amount of virus constantly produced.6,7

HIV continually changes itself, avoiding attack by the antibodies and immune cells that normally control infections. Each generation of viruses is slightly different. This constant evolution helps HIV keep one step ahead of the immune system. Immune cells can only look for viruses that resemble the previous generation of HIV, so the virus constantly ‘escapes’ the immune system.7

CD4 T-cells gradually decline in number. This is because they are killed by HIV and because they are over-activated, and this leads to an increase in T-cell death.5,6 HIV destroys memory CD4 T-cells that have been primed to rapidly respond to infections. Therefore, infections such as Pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP) and Candida (thrush) develop when the CD4 cell count falls.7

HIV and the Immune System Response

Following the above, the presence of high levels of HIV in the body stimulates the immune system and huge numbers of HIV-specific CD4 T-cells are produced to contain the virus. However, these activated CD4 T-cells are also prime targets for the virus and can be rapidly infected and destroyed, leaving the body with weakened anti-HIV immune responses.8,9

Long-term non-progressors tend to maintain high levels of HIV-specific CD4 T-cells and CD8 T-cells that effectively control HIV replication and keep viral loads low.10,11 Stronger HIV-specific CD8 T-cell responses are significantly associated with greater viral load decline during primary infection.12,13 CD8 T-cells act against HIV in primary infection by killing HIV-infected cells and secreting chemokines.14,15

Fucoidan’s anti-HIV function

Fucoidan can protect healthy cells from becoming infected with the HIV/AIDS virus – in turn, Fucoidan can keep the virus from infecting those who have not contracted it.

Isolated Fucoidans from several brown seaweeds, for example, Undaria pinnatifida (Mekabu), Cladosiphon okamuranus (Mozuku) and Fucus vesiculosus (Fucus) exhibited potential antiviral effects against HSV-1 and HSV-2 deprived of cytotoxicity for Vero cell cultures. Elizondo-Gonzalez and colleagues reported that the isolated Fucoidan from Cladosiphon okamuranus (Mozuku) showed potent antiviral activity against Newcastle disease virus in the Vero cell line at the initial stages of infection. The viral formation declined by exposure of Fucoidan prior to cleavage of the fusion protein, which led to attachment of Fucoidan to the F0 protein. This finding was important to reassure that Fucoidan has anti-viral activities. Consequently, Fucoidan exhibited a better antiviral potency than ribavirin.17 Moen and Clark, 1993, studied isolated Fucoidan from F. vesiculosus, which showed its potential to suppress HIV RT in vitro.

Other studies showed that respective activities are not because of dispatching of target cells. Indeed, Fucoidan induced no adverse effects on protein metabolism and cell generation.16 HIV-1 infection of target cells is protected after preincubation with Fucoidan. Moreover, Fucoidan can effectively augment immune system health by activating immunoreactions of the cellular and humoral types and by increasing macrophage phagocytosis. In conclusion, Fucoidan directly affects the secretion of extracellular matrix proteins, influences the proliferation of cells, and can activate apoptosis.17 Scientists also examined Fucoidan for its anti-HIV-1 abilities, given its potent anti-herpetic properties. This anti-HIV-1 activity was not a result of Fucoidan working as a viricidal, but rather as a direct consequence of its ability to inhibit the early events of viral replication with Fucoidan. Moreover, Fucoidan can effectively augment immune system health by activating immunoreactions of the cellular and humoral types and by increasing macrophage phagocytosis.18 In conclusion, Fucoidan directly affects the secretion of extracellular matrix proteins, influences the proliferation of cells, can activate apoptosis and support the immune function.18

$100,000 Grant Results in 750,000 Diapers for Diaper Banks Supporting Families Impacted by Government Shutdown

NDBN member diaper banks distributed diapers to furloughed federal employees.

Greater DC Diaper Bank is among the NDBN member diaper banks that have distributed diapers to furloughed federal workers and families impacted by the recent government shutdown.

National Diaper Bank Network uses GoFundMe grant to get 750,000 diapers to diaper banks supporting federal workers impacted by the recent government shutdown.

Going without pay for a month left many furloughed federal workers and their families straining to afford basic necessities, like diapers.”

— Joanne Goldblum, CEO National Diaper Bank Network

NEW HAVEN, CT, USA, January 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN) announced today that it has directed more than 750,000 diapers to 18 NDBN member diaper bank programs engaged in emergency diaper distribution efforts that are supporting federal workers impacted by the recent 35-day government shutdown.

The diaper donation was made possible by a $100,000 grant to NDBN from GoFundMe and the thousands of individuals who contributed to the “Government Shutdown Direct Relief Fund.”

“Going without pay for a month left many furloughed federal workers and their families straining to afford basic necessities, like diapers,” said NDBN CEO Joanne Goldblum. “Fortunately, diaper bank programs stepped in to help, much like they do following a natural disaster.”

“However, the unexpected demand depleted the number of diapers available to address ongoing diaper need among families living in poverty. The GoFundMe grant allows NDBN to get three-quarters of a million diapers back into these communities so they can continue to be there for families when needed.”

One in three U.S. families experiences diaper need, which is the struggle to provide enough diapers to keep a baby or toddler clean, dry, and healthy. A lack of clean diapers impacts the physical, emotional, and economic well-being of children and families.

NDBN member diaper banks sharing in the diapers include: Austin Diaper Bank; Diaper Bank of North Carolina (Durham); Diaper Bank of Southern Arizona (Tucson); Galveston Diaper Bank; Greater DC Diaper Bank (Washington); Greater Philadelphia Diaper Bank; HappyBottoms (Kansas City); Help A Mother Out (San Francisco); Hope Supply Co. (Dallas); Jake’s Diapers (Kaukauna, Wisc.); Metropolitan Detroit Diaper Bank; Mitzvah Circle Foundation (Philadelphia); Nashville Diaper Connection; St. Louis Area Diaper Bank; Texas Diaper Bank (San Antonio); The Diaper Bank of Connecticut (North Haven); Western Pennsylvania Diaper Bank (Pittsburgh); and WestSide Baby (Seattle).

Other national nonprofits receiving grants from the GoFundMe campaign include World Central Kitchen, Feeding America, and Federal Employee Education and Assistance Fund (FEEA). To date, the fund has received more than $470,000 in donations.

The National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN) is a nationwide nonprofit dedicated to eliminating diaper need in America, by leading a national movement to help meet the basic needs of all babies and their families…including access to clean, dry diapers and other material goods. Founded in 2011 with the support of Huggies®, the network raises national awareness of diaper need (#DiaperNeed) and supports the development and expansion of diaper banks in communities throughout the country. Its active membership includes more than 200 diaper banks, diaper pantries, and food banks located in 47 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. More information on NDBN and diaper need is available at www.nationaldiaperbanknetwork.org, and on Twitter (@DiaperNetwork) and Facebook (facebook.com/NationalDiaperBankNetwork).

Fucoidan’s Ability to Prevent the Flu and Its Ability to Inhibit the Influenza A Virus by Dr. Susana Trujillo

The immune system is actively finding ways to prevent viruses, bacteria and infected cells from affecting our health.

Besides the ability of Fucoidan (Mekabu, Mozuku and Fucus) to enhance the immune system naturally, they are also able to produce higher antibody titers against all three strains of influenza. ”

— Dr. Susana Trujillo

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, January 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — When our immune system is weak, some viruses can "hide" inside certain cells in our bodies and avoid being totally removed by the immune system. Some viruses can do this for a long time.

The best flu prevention strategy is basic — good nutrition (including taking natural health supplements), regular exercise, and enough sleep. You can also wash hands frequently and avoid people who have the flu. Still, it's hard to prevent contact with microorganisms (germs). Therefore, the best way to prevent the flu and other diseases is by keeping yourself healthy.

Flu is an infectious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and sometimes the lungs. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death.1 Some of the symptoms caused by Influenza (a viral infection) are fever, chills, sore throat, muscle aches, and cough that lasts a week or more.1 People commonly use the term "flu" to define any kind of respiratory or gastrointestinal illness, such as colds or diarrhea and vomiting that resemble “influenza-like-illness” (ILI) symptoms. However, influenza usually associated with more severe illness and lasts longer than the common cold and, normally, influenza does not cause vomiting or diarrhea in adults.2

Because influenza viruses are constantly mutating and there are different strains and subtypes that are prevalent among human populations from year to year, outbreaks and epidemics occur in certain geographical areas or countries. Occasionally, an influenza strain will emerge to cause an influenza pandemic that spreads globally and is usually associated with more severe disease and increased mortality.6

Most people recover from influenza without any complications and develop immunity to future infection with the same strain or a related influenza strain that may prevent illness symptoms or make illness less severe.10 However, there is an increased risk for serious complications and death for the elderly and those with compromised immune systems or who are suffering from diabetes, kidney dysfunction, heart disease, and other chronic health issues.8

The single best way to prevent seasonal flu is to adapt good health habits like covering your cough and washing your hands often can help stop the spread of germs and prevent respiratory illnesses like the flu.9 There also are natural health supplements like Fucoidan with antiviral properties that can be used to treat and prevent the flu. The different types of Fucoidan (Mozuku, Mekabu and Fucus) offer the nutrients you can take to protect yourself and others from flu and help stop the spread of germs.

In relationship to the nutritional health supplements that can help you prevent the flu, one of the most studied brown seaweeds is Mekabu, which contains Fucoidan a sulfated polysaccharide extracted from the sporophylls of the edible seaweed (U. pinnatifida)11 and long used as a traditional food in Japan, has attracted attention as an agent that enhances immune function because various types of Fucoidan reportedly have physiological activities such as antiviral, anti-inflammatory, anti-angiogenic, anticoagulant, and antitumor effects.12 For virus infection in mice, oral administration of Mekabu Fucoidan increased neutralizing antibody production in the mucosa and blood and inhibited viral growth. At the same time, Mekabu Fucoidan also demonstrated to enhance immune function through mechanisms involving natural killer (NK) cell activation and increased production of IFN-γ and IL-12 in animal studies.11 The WHO announced a new influenza pandemic on 11 June 2009.13 Three influenza pandemics (Spanish, Asian, and Hong Kong) in the 20th century, and more recently the extremely pathogenic avian influenza (H5N1) with high lethality reported in Hong Kong in 1997, indicate that humans have long been facing influenza threats. The emergence of new influenza viruses and human epidemics is now recognized as a serious global health problem.13

One study from the Mukogawa Women’s University in Japan reported that their study “showed a possible adjunctive role of Mekabu Fucoidan in antibody production in the elderly, although further studies on the underlying immunomodulatory mechanisms are needed.”14

Recent studies focused on antiviral compounds obtained from natural resources. Many extracts from brown seaweeds have been isolated and tested for pharmacological purposes, and their antiviral activity has been demonstrated in vitro and in vivo. Fucoidan is a sulfated polysaccharide present in the cell wall matrix of brown algae that has been demonstrated to inhibit certain enveloped viruses with low toxicity. One important study evaluated the potential antiviral activity and the mechanism of action of fucoidan from Cladosiphon okamuranus against Newcastle Disease Virus (NDV0 in the Vero cell line.

In conclusion, besides the ability of Fucoidan (Mekabu, Mozuku and Fucus) to enhance the immune system naturally, they are also able to produce higher antibody titers against all three strains of influenza. The immune system is compromised in people with a weak immunity, still there are healthy habits like taking Fucoidan on a daily basis that can be adapted to be healthier and to avoid getting sick too often.

SHOWING THAT A DRUG-FREE LIFE IS MORE FUN, KIDS CELEBRATE AT DRUG-FREE YOUTH FESTIVAL IN DOWNTOWN CLEARWATER

Children learn that planting is a fun Drug-Free Activity at the Foundation for a Drug-Free World Youth Festival

No parent wants to go through the horrors of their child getting addicted to drugs or the pain of losing a loved one to an overdose,”

— Julieta Santagostino,President of the FDFW Fl Chapter

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, January 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In celebration of the National Institute on Drug Abuse’s (NIDA) National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week, the Foundation for a Drug-Free World’s (FDFW) Florida Chapter held a Drug-Free Youth Festival on January 26th in the Osceola Courtyard in Clearwater, Florida. Kids enjoyed live music, dance challenges, a scavenger hunt, a photo station, fun games, and raffle prizes all while learning the truth about drugs. The scavenger hunt included such things as: finding five facts about drugs, watching a Truth About Drugs Public Service Announcement, and signing the Drug-Free Pledge.

“No parent wants to go through the horrors of their child getting addicted to drugs or the pain of losing a loved one to an overdose,” said Julieta Santagostino the President of the Foundation for a Drug-Free World Florida Chapter. “It is important that both, parents and youth, learn the facts about drugs and alcohol and how these affect the body and mind. With this event we wanted to create a fun way for them to learn these facts.”

Several other organizations participated in the event and had a booth with fun activities for the kids as well. These included Drug-Free America Foundation, Narconon Suncoast Drug Rehabilitation Center, Community Learning Center, Concerned Businessmen’s Association of Tampa Bay and the Florida National Guard Counterdrug Task Force.

In 2016 alone, over 5,300 young people died from drug overdoses. This is why the Foundation for a Drug-Free World has as its mission educating as many youth as possible about the harmful effects of drugs.

“This was such a fun way for kids to learn the facts about drugs and how drugs can harm them,” said a father who attended the event with his two daughters.

The Foundation for a Drug-Free World is sponsored by the Church of Scientology and the Church sponsored the Drug-Free Youth Festival for the community to enjoy and have fun. Last year in Florida, FDFW distributed over 230,000 Truth About Drugs booklets and educator kits to children, teachers, law enforcement officers and residents of Florida.

Senecio Robotics shipped its revolutionary BioMosquito™ robot to an international partner

Senecio Compact BioMosquito module based on deep learning technology, with mosquitoes being entered on the right side, with automated loading of male-only (none biting) mosquitoes on the left side into release boxes, after classification and sorting

Senecio ceremony for shipping its BioMosquito machine

Loading station loading measured number of mosquitoes per each release box mounted at the loading position

Senecio Robotics BioMosquito™ based artificial intelligence robot will support global efforts to combat mosquito diseases

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, ISRAEL, January 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Tel-Aviv, Israel, January 31, 2019, Senecio is pleased to announce that a positive patent examination for its mosquito robotic solution, has been received, making Senecio the sole company with a positive examination for a mosquito robotic sex sorting.

The female mosquito is the deadliest animal on planet and transmits diseases such as Malaria, Dengue, Yellow fever, West Nile, Zika, etc. with a death toll of hundreds of thousands per year and hospitalizing millions.

In the fight against mosquitoes, the latest technology is the rearing and release of specially treated mosquitoes. Global players include companies like Google sister company, Verily Life Science, Intrexon subsidiary Oxitec, World Mosquito Program, MosquiotMate, Wolbaki, Forrest Innovations and others.

Some approaches, are based on the fact the female mosquito mates only once, hence, the release of large number of sterile male-only mosquitoes (which are non-biting), leads to local population suppression, while other approaches suggest releasing of special treated males and females which prevent diseases transmission. In collaboration with the unnamed partner, Senecio is working to significantly advance the speed, scale and cost of addressing these needs.

Promising results were obtained in trial size programs around the world, including USA, China, Singapore, Australia, Brazil and others.
However, when the solution needs to be applied in large scale, the mosquito factories are limited in their growth potential relying on tedious labor work for the sorting and packaging of the special mosquitoes.

Senecio has been developing a proprietary technology, providing mosquito factories, laboratories and governments with an affordable, compact solution for robotic handling, sorting and loading of mosquitoes in large scale.
The solution can also be combined with the traditional pesticides approach, for an integrated pest management approach, resulting in an effective solution to the mosquito problem.

The company deep learning technology for automating the production process of mosquitoes is integrated with the company special release systems, with granted patents including the sequential release of cartridges from a moving van or a flying vehicle. Special aerial systems were developed and successfully tested in the US with the support of the BIRD foundation (An Israel-USA bilateral program). Senecio was the first company in the world to safely release mosquitoes while flying at high speed.

Senecio Robotics, is an early stage technology company, developing automation solutions for large scale mosquito projects. It is the holder of dozens of inventions from rearing, through sex sorting to loading, air and ground field release, utilizing proprietary proven technologies.

Backed by Ocean Azul Partners from Miami, with a global vision to support world efforts for eradicating the number one killer, Senecio is working to provide mosquito factories with a complete mobile automated unit, providing an affordable solution for one of the worlds most pressing needs.

5 Day Low Cal, Fat, Protein Fasting – An Old Chinese Tradition Scientifically Proven to Rebuild Self Immune & Microbiome to Fight Chronical Disease & Depression

We come together to: “Make way for what we truly are in essence – infinitely free beings, embodiment of love on every level, sparks of the divine, perfect and full"”

— Formal National Martial Art Head Coach Junfeng Li

LENOX,, MA, US, January 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Can you get dramatic health benefits from a modest adjustment in how you eat? A clinically-proven regimen that mimics fasting with a low-calorie, low-protein and low-fat diet for 5 days every 3 months says yes. Over 20 years of research at USC has shown this simple, 3-times-a-year, regimen to be superior to ongoing calorie restriction, 1 or 2 day intermittent fasting, or extended fasts. Besides reduced waist size, the 5 day fasting mimic diet (FMD) activates longevity genes and regenerative cells, reduces inflammation, and improves a variety of bio-markers for both healthy individuals and those challenged by illness. The 5 day regimen is not austere. The meals are savory and satisfying. For the rest of the month, you can eat as usual. However, we strongly suggest a 6 month plant-based diet in addition to the FMD regimen, as meat protein is acidic and fish is unavoidably polluted.

While research is ongoing as to what makes this regemine so effective, it has been demonstrated to clear dampness in the body, reduce inflammation, balance probiotics and rebuild the essential microbiome system that has received so much attention from the health community recently.

For those struggling with acute health issues, here are some specific clinical results from the USC research led by Dr. Valter Longo:

https://prolonfmd.com/clinical-results/

Specially targeted foods are available through health practitioners if you are currently undergoing treatments, such as radiation therapy.

Fasting is a thousand year tradition in China. While qigong, taichi, and meditation are integral to its mental health practice, fasting is integral to its medicine practice. Some fasting can last many days or months, including water-only regimens, as well as restricted diet fasts, such as rice soup (porridge) and apples. Some Chinese masters use herb formulas to do more cleansing at the beginning of the fast. [And we will explore some of these as well.]

http://www.natureandhealth.com.au/health/therapeutic-fasting

Scientific verification of fasting benefits is not new. 150 years ago, German doctor and scientist Arnold Ehret did extensive research on fasting. His book Mucusless Diet Healing System: Scientific Method of Eating Your Way to Health encouraged people to use fasting as part of their maintenance for mental (clarity) and physical health.

At this year’s annual A4M anti-aging congress conference, attendance by doctors doubled compared to last year. Many of these doctors, who came from around the world, practice what is known as functional medicine, which is based on finding the underlying cause of a health problem, and focuses on lifestyle changes, such as diet, exercise, sleep and meditation. Research on fasting was one of the main topics of this year’s conference. Many of the doctors jumped on the Fasting Mimic Diet wagon, and will be implementing it with their patients.

Join this exciting revolution in personal health care, and learn how to prepare these delicious, nutrient-packed FMD meals at home.

Meditation and Fasting have been practiced together for thousands of years in Asia. This week, we shall do the same, practicing different forms of meditation as we set out on a healthy fasting journey.
Why Meditation with Fasting? Fasting is a physical cleansing. Meditation is a cleansing of the mind. From birth, we are conditioned by society along specific guidelines, whose limited perspectives can narrow and confuse the mind. Just as shown in this picture.
Meditation, as Paul Puddicombe said in his new book “The Headspace Guide to Meditation and Mindfulness”, creates mindspace, enabling us to see with clarity from a wider perspective. While striving and achieving are inherent to our nature, meditation enables us to realize that our most lasting happiness and joy is not found in the goals we set for ourselves. This realization helps us to live a life of ease, confidence and freedom in the face of life’s obstacles, heartbreaks and inevitable setbacks.

Between meals morning and afternoon, we will practice the Standing Post Meditation. One of the most potent of all meditations, Standing Post not only calms our mind, it tones our muscles from head to toe, opens our chest, and strengthens our kidneys. With respect to just muscle toning alone, 15 minutes of Standing Post Meditation is the equivalent of one hour of Aerobic exercise.

Other meditations will include:
The Union of Three Hearts. Practiced sitting on mats on the floor, this key Sheng Zhen meditation, grounded in earth energy and accessing heart energy, enables us to connect to universal healing energy. In addition, as with all mat-sitting meditations, it keeps our spine and neck straight and stretches our pelvic floor, increasing both flexibility to our hips and blood circulation to our reproductive system.

Chair Meditation. A combination of mindfulness meditation and Sheng Zhen healing meditation. Sheng Zhen healing meditation is very age-friendly, with simple, graceful movements that activate healing energy throughout the body. Vipassana meditation is designed to allow the mind to escape its habitually chaotic, mindless, flow by training it to be fully present to each arising moment, beginning with the ever- arising movement of the breath throughout the otherwise stilled body. The practice has been compared to taming a wild elephant by tying it to a post. At first the elephant constantly fights against its restriction, but gradually it comes to accept it, so that even if the rope is untied from the post the elephant does not wander off. So too, as mindfulness develops, you do not feel yourself to be controlling the mind, so much as settling into a relaxed, but alert, awareness, called “bare awareness,” whether such bare awareness remains fully with the breath or on the thoughts or feelings that inevitably still arise. Done as a daily practice, Vipassana eases our worries and anxieties. Our heart becomes settled as our mind, habitually attuned to each arising moment, gains a liberating clarity.

Nine Turns Lying Down Meditation. This meditation came to Master Li Junfeng in a dream in which he felt himself being instructed by Lao Tzu. Most effective to people with insomnia or bed ridden.The meditation begins by tracing the energy coursing through the acupoint channels.

FRESNO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Medical doctor and researcher Paul Norwood, MD has published an informational article on simple steps for maintaining your health. The complete article will be published on the Blog of Dr. Norwood at https://PaulNorwoodMD.blogspot.com/

Did you know that “September is Healthy Aging® Month?” The term was coined in by the company’s executive director and the magazine’s editor-in-chief Carolyn Worthington. The event is now in its 2nd decade, and it is still going strong. The reason why Carolyn created this event was to tell the people above the age of 45 that there’s still time for them to change their habits and take control of their health.

Aging has been long given a negative connotation. Fear of the unknown forces people to lead sedentary lives that lead to a number of health problems. A few common aging fears are:

• Isolation or loneliness
• Loss of independence
• Getting care from strangers
• Declining health
• Running out of financial aid
• Not being able to do certain tasks on their own such as drive or run errands like shopping for grocery
• Death of a family member
• Fear of hurting themselves or falling
• Living alone
• Inability to manage daily living activities

Think of healthy aging as a process that involves your body, mind, and soul. Following are five tips of healthy aging that you should follow.

1. Be Active

Many people shy away from exercise and that’s alright. Sometimes, even a walk in the park seems like a difficult chore. When we say “be active,” what we actually mean is to pursue any of your favorite physical activity such as gardening, swimming, rock climbing, or yoga. As long as you are moving and remaining physically active, it will be counted as exercise.

2. Eat Well

Eat plenty of vegetables and fruits, decrease sodium intake, limit the intake of alcoholic drinks, consume small serving sizes, and eliminate processed foods from your diet. The more colorful your plate, the more energized you will feel throughout the day.

3. Practice Prevention

Are you prone to tripping and falling? Aging brings about many problems such as frequent falls, failing eyesight, and forgetfulness. Along with regular medical checkups, make some changes in your house. Clear the rooms of excessive furniture and install handle bars to prevent falls.

4. Get Enough Sleep

Get at least 7 to 9 hours of sleep. Sleep deficiency may lead to problems in memory, immune system, and concentration. It can also cause Alzheimer’s disease according to the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation.

5. Reduce Stress

Identify your stress triggers and find ways to reduce them. Seek therapy if you cannot handle the pressure on your own. A few tricks that can help you reduce your stress levels include journaling, listening to music, and doing a favorite activity.

Always start by making small changes so that you don’t feel overwhelmed. You will immediate feel the change in your body, and including these tips in your regular routine will become quite easy.

It is ideally suited to consumer products like laptop PC’s built-in keyboard, peripheral keyboards of tablet PCs, mobile phone.

The FlexMatrix™ SK5221 key matrix programmability also reduces the customization needs of vertical applications like integrated keypads of instruments, industrial keyboards, point-of-sale (POS) keyboards.

The FlexMatrix™ keyboard encoders expedite time-to-market by making keyboard development simpler, faster and more flexible. This FlexMatrix™ product offers the features of a whole series of standard and custom encoders in a single part, thereby lowering a developer's engineering resource commitment and total solution cost.
