New study indicates aging may be all in your head
The mind influences every cell in the body and therefore human aging is fluid and changeable. It can speed up, slow down, and even reverse itself.—Deepak Chopra
From the Article: The reason that Chi is the most important single factor in health is because your entire body is essentially a large bio-electric magnet. It's known that without these magnetic fields, life could not occur. Cells have an electromagnetic field (EM) and it's this field of energy that keeps each cell alive. The stronger the EM field, the stronger each cell is and the greater it's resilience and resistance to decay and death.As both the ancient Chinese and this study shows, the key to aging and thus longevity, does indeed lie in the brain. Whether it's done via modern science or ancient chi-gung training, the brain is truly the master regulator of health and longevity.Related Content:
