Dr. Shigeaki Hinohara's longevity tips.
Dr. Shigeaki Hinohara is one of those to whom Japan is indebted for its many longevity lessons. He himself was a worthy example with his incredibly active life - after turning 75, he published over 150 books, including the bestseller "Live Long, Live Well", distributed in 1.2 million copies. After celebrating his 100th birthday, Dr. Hinohara continues to heal people and give lectures. His life remains dedicated to the good cause - to guide and advise people on how to achieve health and longevity. In July 2017, the Japanese doctor left this world at the age of 105.
One does not get energy from food and sleep, but from joy. Do you remember how as a child, if you had fun, you forgot to eat and did not need sleep? It's the same for adults. You should not burden your body with strict rules of eating and sleeping.
“People of all races, nationalities and genders can live long. They have only one thing in common - there is not a single fat person among the long-lived. For example, I drink coffee or milk for breakfast, maybe orange juice with a spoonful of olive oil - it is good for the skin and arteries. At lunch - milk with biscuits, or nothing if I'm too busy. When I work, I don't feel hungry at all. My dinner - vegetables, some fish and rice. Twice a week I eat 100 g of lean meat. “
“You do not need to retire at all. But if this is unavoidable, try to do it as late as possible. Today, the retirement age in Japan is 65, but it was introduced half a century ago, when life expectancy was 68, and centenarians across Japan at the time were a total of 125 people. Today, Japanese women live on average to 86 and men to 80. Those who passed the 100 are 36,000 people.”
“To stay healthy, go up the stairs and carry your own bags. I even jump steps to train my muscles. When doctors advise you to do certain tests and recommend surgery, ask them if they would give the same advice to their loved ones. Doctors cannot cure everything they tell us. Why suffer unnecessary suffering? Sometimes music and animal therapists help more than the doctors. Pain is a mysterious thing. The best way to deal with it is to find something very interesting. When a child has a toothache, it is worth involving him in a game to forget the pain. We have a lot of fun in St. Luke's Hospital - music, animals, art therapy. This helps a lot.”
“Don't try to accumulate loads and loads material things. Don’t forget - no one knows when his last hour will come. And we all know; he won't take any of it with him.”
Science alone cannot help people.
Science puts us under one denominator, but we are all different, and disease is closely related to our soul. To understand the disease and help people, we need not only science but also art.
Living long is wonderful.
Up to 60 years we work for the benefit of our family and it is easy for us to achieve the set goals. Then, however, we must do our best for the good of society as a whole.
“Since I turned 65, I have been working for free, 18 hours a day, 7 days a week. And I enjoy every minute.”
