Human beings are funny. We refuse to admit we’re getting older. And we ignore, cover-up, and deny a lot of the typical signs that we are.
Aging gracefully? NO WAY! We fight it every step of the way.
We dye our hair. Spread lotions and potions and cover-ups on our wrinkles. Squeeze ourselves into “foundation” garments to try to maintain the waistline of our youth. And we even pretend those age spots are just freckles.
Most of it is harmless. And if it gives you a little boost to your self-esteem, then go right ahead. But there are some things you shouldn’t ignore.
Because not only can they affect your quality of life. They could also be your first, best chance to act before your battling something much worse.
For example, hearing loss. Sure, you can crank up the TV and pretend it isn’t happening (and drive everyone within earshot nuts). But studies show that hearing loss could send your risk for dementia soaring. It essentially can lead to the regions of the brain involved in listening “going dark.”
But hearing aids can slow or even stop that process. So taking care of a slip in hearing NOW can pay off big TOMORROW. (For more on the hearing loss and dementia connection… plus some useful solutions… check out my free report here.)
The latest research takes it a step further and looks at vision changes. And it reveals one common condition that could be a BIG red flag that we should NEVER ignore.
What your FUZZY VISION is really telling you
The study focuses on a vision condition called retinopathy.
Retinopathy is usually marked by fuzzy vision, spots and splotches, “spiderwebs,” and other visual disturbances. Plus, it can lead to problems with distance vision.
Many people try to ignore it. It gets blown off as just one more sign of aging that’s best to pretend isn’t happening. Except retinopathy isn’t just a sign you need a new pair of glasses.
The condition is usually related to diabetes and high blood pressure. And that’s especially true in seniors. It’s often a sign that the blood vessel problems that can accompany either condition have made their way to the eyes.
But the eyes aren’t the only part of your body struggling from poor blood flow. The retinopathy-linked vision problems are simply a red flag. And ignoring that sign could have devastating consequences.
Don’t ignore the retinopathy red flag
- 70 percent more likely to report memory problems
- twice as likely to suffer a stroke
And it gets worse. Over 10 years, folks with retinopathy are up to THREE TIMES more likely to die than their peers who don’t have this vision condition.
The answer obviously isn’t to deny that the problem exists. And it isn’t just to get a new pair of glasses and forget about the retinopathy, either.
It’s critical to accept that vision troubles could very well be a sign of a deeper problem affecting your circulation. And now is the time to take action to help get rid of the gunk stopping up your blood vessels and get a fresh start.
One excellent option to help do just that is Vitamin K2. This all-natural pipe cleaner can sweep through blood vessels helping to flush out nasty junk and reduce your risk for artery hardening and other circulation issues.
That, in turn, can help protect against many OTHER problems linked to aging, such as vision loss, dementia, stroke, and the early death risk at the heart of the new study.
If you’re on blood thinners such as warfarin, speak to your doctor before adding any vitamin K to your routine, as the two don’t always mix well. And if you’re looking for other natural ways to bump up your blood flow, these 5 circulation-boosting foods are a great place to start.
