Doctor of Medical Sciences, head of the department of the Institute of Gerontology and Rehabilitation Alexander Polyakov argues that in order to improve health, you should move to the countryside. According to him, in such an environment a person will feel more relaxed. Indeed, at almost any age a person is attracted to walks in the fresh air, and if this happens also in an environmentally friendly environment, it will be just fine. With the onset of summer, most retirees try to move to their dachas and work in the garden. Clean air and moderate exercise prolong the life of a person.
But not always a sharp move to the countryside may be useful. For example, if people lived in a city for a long time, and then moved to a village, then this can be detrimental to health (pressure may increase, arrhythmia can begin).
Living in the mountains also helps to stay healthy and live longer. Most well-known physiologists claim that the reason for the longevity of mountain residents is a reduced oxygen content in the air, as a result of which the oxidation processes in our cells slow down, which means that the aging process stops.
A favorable close environment has a positive effect on health. According to statistics, the vast majority of centenarians are surrounded by the care and support of loved ones.
Medicines that can prolong life simply do not exist. But the ancient sages, left behind a beautiful expression: "We stop loving, not because we begin to grow old, but grow old, because we stop loving." And as long as a person has someone to love, while he feels the attention and care of loved ones, he is not afraid of many ailments and stressful situations.
