Does your entire body seem out of whack? You’re not alone. As we age, many of us suddenly feel as if we’ve been zapped on several fronts: our senses, our appearance, our energy, our sex drive and even our minds.
Based on a nationwide poll, Dr. Oz has devised a 5-day plan to help you recharge your body in the 5 ways you need it most.
Dr. Oz’s 5-Day Plan to Recharge Your Body in 5 Ways
Day 1: Elevate Your Senses
Many of the those polled noticed that their senses were not as sharp as they once used to be.
Elevate Your Sense of Touch
To test the sensations in your hand, hold your arms downward and press your wrists against one another; hold for 10 seconds. If you feel numbness or tingling in your thumb, index finger or third digit, that means you have some nerve compression.
To maintain and strengthen the sensation in your nerves, take 10 mcg of vitamin B12 each day. Vegetarians are especially at risk for this deficiency. Try placing the supplement under your tongue since many people do not absorb it as well when only swallowed.
