Keys to a Long Life from 105 Year Old Doctor. Mastery Newsletter August 16, 2018

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

Dr. Shigeaki Hinohara has passed at the age of 105. He worked until very near the end. He said:

“Science alone can’t cure or help people. Science lumps us all together, but illness is individual.

 

Each person is unique, and diseases are connected to their hearts

 

To know the illness and help people, we need liberal and visual arts, not just medical ones.” –Dr. Shigeaki Hinohara

 

The good doctor was interviewed when he was 97 for Japan Times. See that article below the link.

Words of Wisdom From a 97-Year-Old Physician

 

At the age of 97 years and 4 months, Shigeaki Hinohara is one of the world’s longest-serving physicians and educators. He has been healing patients at St. Luke’s International Hospital in Tokyo and teaching at St. Luke’s College of Nursing since 1941.

 

He has published around 150 books since his 75th birthday, including one Living Long, Living Good that has sold more than 1.2 million copies. As the founder of the New Elderly Movement, Hinohara encourages others to live a long and happy life, a quest in which no role model is better than the doctor himself:

 

Energy comes from feeling good, not from eating well or sleeping a lot. Hinohara says we all remember how as children, when we were having fun, we often forgot to eat or sleep. He believes that we can keep that attitude as adults, too, and that it’s best not to tire the body with too many rules such as lunchtime and bedtime.

 

All people who live long — regardless of nationality, race or gender — share one thing in common: None are overweight. For breakfast Hinohara drinks coffee, a glass of milk and some orange juice with a tablespoon of olive oil in it. His lunch is milk and a few cookies. His dinner is veggies, a bit of fish and rice, and, twice a week, 100 grams of lean meat.

 

Always plan ahead. His schedule book is already full until 2014. In 2016 he plans to attend the Tokyo Olympics!

 

There is no need to ever retire, but if one must, it should be a lot later than 65. The current retirement age was set at 65 half a century ago, when the average life-expectancy in Japan was much lower.

 

Share what you know. Hinohara gives 150 lectures a year, some for 100 elementary-school children, others for 4,500 business people.

 

When a doctor recommends you take a test or have some surgery, ask whether the doctor would suggest that his or her spouse or children go through such a procedure. Contrary to popular belief, doctors can’t cure everyone — so why cause unnecessary pain with surgery? Hinohara thinks that music and animal therapy can help more than most doctors imagine.

 

To stay healthy, always take the stairs and carry your own stuff. He take two stairs at a time, to get his muscles moving.

 

Pain is mysterious, and having fun is the best way to forget it. Hospitals must cater to the basic need of patients, and we all want to have fun.

 

Don’t be crazy about amassing material things. Remember: You don’t know when your number is up, and you can’t take it with you to the next place.

 

Hospitals must be designed and prepared for major disasters, and they must accept every patient who appears at their doors. Hinohara helped design St. Luke’s so that it was possible to operate anywhere: in the basement, in the corridors, in the chapel. Most people thought he was crazy, but on March 20, 1995, he was unfortunately proven right when members of the Aum Shinrikyu religious cult launched a terrorist attack in the Tokyo subway. St. Luke’s accepted 740 victims and in two hours figured out that it was sarin gas that had hit them. Sadly they lost one person, but they saved 739 lives.

 

Science alone can’t cure or help people. Illness is individual. Each person is unique, and diseases are connected to their hearts. To know the illness and help people, there is a need for liberal and visual arts, not just medical ones.

 

Life is filled with incidents. On March 31, 1970, when Hinohara was 59 years old, he boarded the Yodogo, a flight from Tokyo to Fukuoka. The plane was hijacked by the Japanese Communist League-Red Army Faction. He spent the next four days handcuffed to his seat. As a doctor, he looked at it all as an experiment and was amazed at how his body slowed down in a crisis.

 

Find a role model and aim to achieve even more than they could ever do. Hinohara’s role model was his father, who went to the United States in 1900 to study at Duke University, in North Carolina.

 

It’s wonderful to live long. Since the age of 65, Hinohara has worked as a volunteer. He still puts in 18 hours, seven days a week, and loves every minute of it.

Want To Die Early? Retire Early. Mastery Newsletter August 9, 2017

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

Want a Greater Risk Of Dementia?

 

Retire Early

 

Those who retired at age 55 were 89% likelier to die within ten years of retirement than those who retired at age 65.

 

Those who retired at 65 years old had a 14.6% lower risk of getting dementia than those who retired at 60 years old.

 

This was reported in the British Medical Journal about a 2005 study of employees at Shell Oil.

 

“Work tends to keep us mentally and physically alert – gerontology research

suggests we ‘use it or lose it’ because people have a reason to get up in the

morning, to look after their health and to maintain their social contacts. According to Carole Dufouil, director of research in neuroepidemiology at INSERM at France’s Bordeaux School of Public Health, each additional year of work lowers our risk of dementia by an additional 3.2%.” –Financial Post article, March 13, 2015

 

Retirement is a weird social experiment, a historical blip. Its collapse will be a triumph for common sense.

 

We are not meant to retire. There is nothing else in nature that retires. Plants and trees, animals and fish continue to grow…until they die.

 

Humans are the only ones, with their oversized brains, that have created this artificial state and goal of “taking it easy” when we get to a certain age.

 

We are not meant to “take it easy.” As we grow older, more knowledgeable and perhaps even wiser, we are meant to use the knowledge, the skill sets we have picked up and the wisdom to help others.

 

Instead, we as societies through our programming, have come to believe that older people are less useful. Nothing could be further from the truth.

 

The whole idea of retiring and taking it easy is an abdication of our responsibility as part of the human family. Consider instead that perhaps we were meant to continue to work harder and harder as we age and as we accumulate more experience and perhaps some wisdom.

 

At best, it is a shame to not share that experience and wisdom with others. At worst, perhaps it is a massive waste of energy and a wealth of wisdom that is being sidelined.

 

Yes, we face more challenges as we grow in years. Consider: is that nature’s way of encouraging us to work harder?

 

Look after your health, maintain your social contacts, continue contributing. You may find life is richer and ever more meaningful in the “Elder Years.”

 

Oh yes, and work hard. You will enjoy life more.

 

 

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,
