Our body functions best when it is in homeostasis: balance in the body. We have many homeostatic mechanisms that help regulate this balance. Do the homeostatic mechanisms change as we age? Does homeostasis take on a different dimension? Does homeostasis mean something different from what it did when we were young? These questions are concerns of many older people. Each day new research comes out as to the fallacy of many of the preconceived ideas we had about aging. I believe that the same lifestyle factors that are important for maintaining health in a 20 year old are just as important to a 60 year old: 1. Diet; 2. Exercise and body alignment; 3. Not letting stress become distress; 4. Environmental factors.
