We all get older, that is one thing that we just can’t stop! But we don’t have to do to accept everything that comes along with age. In fact, there are a lot of things we can do something about to look and feel younger. Read on to find out what they are.

Mobility

For many folks as they get a little older, they can struggle with mobility issues. This can be caused by various things. One of which is if they are suffering from joint pain or arthritis.

There is two type of arthritis to be aware of. The first is osteoarthritis which is caused by a problem in the lining of the joints. This thins, and it became more difficult for the joints to move, which is what caused the pain.

Then there is rheumatoid arthritis which is an autoimmune condition where the body’s own system attacks the joints. Which causes swelling and pain.

There is medication available for both of these conditions to help alleviate the pain and the swelling to make movement easier. Also, some folks choose to cut out certain food from their diet. Like those from the deadly nightshade family, such as tomatoes and bell peppers. This is said to have a positive effect on rheumatoid arthritis in particular.

Varicose Veins

Another ailment commonly associated with old age is varicose veins! This is when the vein walls, usually in the leg became swollen and distended because the blood is flowing back through them.

It can be caused as a result of standing for long periods as well as old age too! Although whatever the reason, your legs are likely to feel prettied tied all the time if you have this condition.

Something else that is pretty common in older age is hearing loss. That is when you can no longer hear to the extent as you could before.  It is often first notice in older patients as then need to have the TV up much louder than they used to and then they are referred to a specialist for a hearing test.

Protecting your ears from particularly loud sounds throughout your life can be helpful in preventing this, though. So using ear protectors when you go to a concert or are involved with heavy machinery is a good idea. As it not having your headphones up too loud!
