Senior Health... this is most likely the main concern of seniors and baby-boomers
Senior health, for me, has two major components:
- Pain relief, hopefully done quickly, and
- Overall wellbeing, which, I believe, is a 12-step program! And by this, I mean that there are 12 wellbeing goals you will need to work into your life... plus a 13th... but who wants to know about THIRTEEN things?
I also looked to some ancient wisdom for help in wellbeing.
One bible verse resonated with me as a template for overall health and wellbeing.
Luke 2, 52 King James version
“And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature,
and in favor with god and man.”
I’m mostly a left-brain kind of guy, so I tend to break things down into small chunks, and discuss each chunk at length. You’ll note that I also try to link these chunks to other pages where they’re discussed from a different point of view.
For instance, below is a discussion of pain relief, which could have been included in the SELF RELATIONSHIP section of the page on relationships… but it [sort of] seemed more logical to put it here.
In both pain relief and wellbeing, there are two overriding goals for you:
- Identify and reduce the toxic elements in your life
- Identify and maximize the positive aspects of your life
IT’S ALL CONNECTED
As with all aspects of life… there is significant overlap between pain relief and wellbeing… especially as wellbeing includes the 5 “beings” of life, all of which overlap with relationships.
Components of PHYSICAL BEING
- Cardiovascular Stamina
- Cellular health

- Muscle stamina
Components of MENTAL BEING
Components of EMOTIONAL BEING
- Shadow integration
Components of MORAL BEING

My senior health story
Do any of these problems describe you?
- Chronic Pain?
- Lack of Mobility?
- Poor Sleep Patterns?
- Feeling Old and Worn Out?
- Inability to Heal Properly From Trauma?
- Taking Forever to Recover From Even The Slightest Exercise?
- Not Getting Relief From Your M.D.?
All of these described me at various times over the past 15 years...
And I found a big truth about “cures”!
No ONE cure method will work for everyone.
No ONE cure method will work on all of these problems for a given person.
You need a multi-method approach, to optimize senior health.
My approaches are paying off!
Especially the first six of the problems listed above have been substantially lessened for me.
Truth in Advertising!
Doing #6 is still giving me grief… but I’m getting more motivated as the pains subside, and my weight drops.
I go to my MD when I have infections, allergies, asthma and respiratory issues. I find prescription medication works for me on acute problems. It’s the chronic ones where I’ve found modern medicine has less impact, which is why I’ve looked around for other solutions.
Here’s the approach I took to pain-relief and wellbeing.
- pain relief machines,
- therapeutic massage,
- mobility aids,
- using energy-based therapy systems
- diet change, and
- special exercises for the pain.
What was interesting, that was as my pain subsided, my overall physical and emotional health improved.
The latter really “took off” when I started several meditation techniques.
Mentally, I noticed a reduction in foggy thinking… my thoughts had much more clarity, and tasks such as writing web pages became easier.
I could concentrate for longer periods.
I was more productive.
I also made an effort to eliminate or at least minimize my exposure to toxic elements in my environment [especially my home.]
I almost found safer alternatives for many personal products like
- skin care, and
The biggest boost to pain relief and wellbeing was the discovery and daily use of PEMF health devices.
there’ll be links to every item that worked for me.
Subscribers to my Newsletter will get access to small reports about senior health that I’ll write first on a specific item.
I’ll insert a notice, in a newsletter, when that topic becomes a webpage on this site.
