Agein Corporation Responds to Findings: Prolonged Sitting Leads to Death and Disease

Boston, MA (PRWEB) January 30, 2015, the Internet’s premier anti-aging web site focusing on anti-aging tips, news, and advice from some of the foremost experts in the industry, is weighing in on a recent study that found that prolonged periods of sitting can lead to death and disease. also announces the top strategies to help reduce the amount of time spent sitting.

“It isn’t uncommon for people to spend the better part of their day sitting. Many go from the car to the office to back in the car to the dinner table, then spend the rest of the evening watching TV on the couch,” says Dr. Kevin J. McLaughlin,’s anti-aging and health and wellness specialist. “In fact, it’s believed that an average person literally spends half their day sitting. Unfortunately, new data suggest a sedentary lifestyle could be killing us.”

Researchers in Toronto analyzed data pooled from 41 international studies and found that prolonged periods of sedentary behavior were associated with a 15% to 20% higher risk of death from heart disease, diabetes, and cancer and as much as a 90% increased risk of developing diabetes.

Dr. McLaughlin explains that the data are adjusted for the effects of regular exercise. While regular exercise, a healthy diet, and a daily personal care regimen are important for maintaining a healthy lifestyle, engaging in 30 to 60 minutes of exercise does not mean individuals can relax for the rest of the day.

“Staying healthy is about balance. In order to really lower the risk of disease and premature death, people need to incorporate more anti-aging fitness into their schedule and reduce the amount of time they spend sitting down,” he adds. “In addition to exercising, people need to make a conscious effort to reduce the amount of time they sit in a 12-hour day by at least two to three hours.”

“There are a number of easy strategies everyone can incorporate into their day to help keep them moving. For instance, if someone works at a desk all day, they should make a point of taking a short two-minute walk once an hour, and if they work in an office building, they should skip the elevator and take the stairs. And when watching TV, people should use commercial breaks to walk around,” Dr. McLaughlin concludes. “It doesn’t take a lot to effort to make a big lifestyle change; everyone just needs to make a concerted effort to move around, eat healthy, and get a good night’s sleep.”

Detox Retreat at Sedona Mago Retreat Leads to Weight Loss and Improved Health

(PRWEB) January 22, 2015

The average American gained 5-10 lbs. over the holidays and is on a quest to take it off.

Juniper D. Yang, Tao Master and instructor and Dr. Victoria Green, Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, lead the Revitalizing Detox Retreat at Sedona Mago Retreat. The great majority of their retreat participants succeed in losing weight. In addition, they report a profound improvement in their energy and overall health, and find relief from fatigue, brain fog, insomnia, depression, headaches and various aches and pains.

A lot of diets are unsuccessful because toxins have built up in a person’s body and they do not address this issue. According to Juniper, even if we make a concentrated effort to have a healthy lifestyle, current environmental toxins make it necessary to cleanse our bodies every six months. Toxins can cause fat to build up, especially around the belly. This unsightly visceral fat surrounds internal organs and is a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases such as coronary heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. No matter how much you restrict calories, weight loss is nearly impossible—unless you cleanse your body.

The Revitalizing Detox Program at Sedona Mago Retreat has spiritual benefits as well. People find that their natural healing power is enhanced through components of this unique program which include mindful eating, attending to the breath, meditation, and energy balancing.

While each retreat at Sedona Mago Retreat is distinctive, they share a common goal–to help participants to heal themselves through the principles and practices of Tao. The From Stress to Strength weekend retreat is designed to show people how to reduce, prevent, and cope with stress while the Finding True Self retreat provides techniques to focus inward for self-realization and helps renew a sense of inner peace. Holistic Health Journey leads to mindful living and utilizes many natural healing sources from within and the Tao Meditation retreats teach basic meditation and exercises for healing the body and mind to develop or deepen the meditation practice.
