Age-Defying Health by Sarah Ontell Rocking chairs and orange prescription bottles are images conjured when asked to envision the average 73 year-old American woman. Life is expected to slow down by the 7th decade, when energy levels and mental agility begin their often slow and steady decline. A quiet life of retirement and grandchildren mark the pinnacle of success in old age, with sometimes traveling and exploring new hobbies for the more adventurous types. The stereotype for the average senior is one that's been deeply ingrained into our cultural consciousness, for good measure, since it was merely one hundred years ago when the average life expectancy was only around 40. With modern scientific research and discovery radically altering paradigms on what seems like a.daily basis, it should come as no surprise that there are an elite few who are inadvertently. destroying the stereotype for the American senior. We sometimes see them at the gym or the health food store; they boast upbeat, inspiring attitudes and physiques that defy not only conventional wisdom, but Physics itself. They are biological revolutionaries who cannot help but impress whoever comes their way. Nonetheless, they are senior citizens who, despite the numbers on their social security cards, refuse to accept old age's connotations. I am lucky enough to know one of these super-humans. I met Millan in 2011 when my then sick mother and I signed up to stay at her detoxification and health retreat in Julian, CA. She had the most infectious energy and enthusiasm that just made you excited about life. Fast-forward one year later and Millan is now a beloved friend and mentor. Every day Millan Chessman wakes up at 4:30 A.M. After her morning coffee, she proceeds to make a daily green smoothie of organic kale, parsley, spinach, and carrots--a potent cocktail of, nutrients that she swears gives her incredible energy. After her lengthy morning ritual, which includes reading and writing in her journal, Millan plans how to take on the workday. Depending on her schedule, she could be volunteering to teach Zumba to high school kids, or anticipating Millan Chessman spending a full day with clients at her health retreat. Either way, the 73 year-old great grandmother is up and ready to be productive with a vigor and vitality reminiscent of the late Jack LaLanne. Millan is living and breathing proof of the long term benefits of a healthy diet and lifestyle. Her most recent credential is a license as a Zumba instructor, making Millan the only licensed instructor who is also a great- grandmother. She has the activity level and energy of a woman less than half her age, and the only reasons she ever visits the doctor are for routine blood tests and bone scans. "It is nothing against doctors. I simply never get sick. A doctor once looked at my blood work and told me that it was the first time he had seen such impressive numbers for a person my age. My hope is to be an inspiration to the 77 million baby boomers in the US. I wasn't always healthy. I was obese, addicted to sugar, and didn't start exercising until I was 50. It's never too late to start something new." The uncertainty in the future of our healthcare system yields a necessary concern for health and disease prevention in the The Julian News 3 Unique and Old CANDLES ..

With shows like Dr. Oz and The Doctors exploding in popularity, it is clear that many Americans are now highly interested in making lifestyle changes to promote health and prevent disease. Millan attributes much of her excellent health to her plant- based diet of over 23 years. Studies show that vegetarians can expect to rive longer lives than their meat-eating counterparts. "1 became a vegetarian after learning about the adverse health effects from eating too much meat. My health dramatically improved, I had more energy, and looked younger. Whether you eat meat or not, it is critical to make fresh fruits and vegetables a large staple in your daily diet," Millan explains. Fruits and vegetables contain phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are powerful compounds found in plants that cause Cancer cells to die and repair DNA damage caused by smoking and toxic exposure. They are high in "antioxidants," a now buzzword for the nutrients that play a huge role in preventing cell degeneration and improving cellular function through combating free radicals. Millan's entire diet is comprised of mainly fruits and vegetables. She eats no meat, white flour, refined sugar, and little processed food. "Wonder bread is something I left in the sixties," she jokes. Her refrigerator is vibrant and colorful not from food packaging, but from the abundant fruits and vegetables that resemble a mini produce aisle. "A lot of people don't know that you can actually change your taste buds. If you begin to make positive changes in your diet, you'll soon notice how fruits and vegetables begin to taste better and better. Your body will begin to crave good foods," Millan explains. Millan spreads her message of health by regularly giving lectures in venues like libraries, health food stores, and TV and radio shows. She has a lecture entitled "The Brain," in which she discusses ways tO prevent Dementia and Alzheimer's while preserving and even improving brain health during old age. "Simple things like regular exercise and reading do so much to promote mental sharpness. Older people do not have to be sentenced to the tragic and debilitating effects of Dementia and Alzheimer's," she explains. Research reveals that regular exercise preserves the brain by supplying it with oxygen. Exercise prevents the constriction of blood flow to the brain, giving it an adequate supply of blood. Strokes occur when blood flow to ,the brain is constricted with Dementia and Alzheimer's common shortly after. It is easy to detect Millan's passion for health. Her computer is filled with hundreds of testimonials by clients thanking her for her dedication in helping them learn to be healthy. With 31 years in the health industry, Millan is not yet ready to leave the work force. "The word retirement is simply not in my vocabulary." Do not ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the worm needs is people who have come alive. HaroM Whitman
