Understanding Inflammaging and how to fight it!
By Fiona Macgill (@thelongevitybible)
Inflammaging is a term that describes the chronic, low-grade inflammation that can occur as we age. This phenomenon can have significant health implications, contributing to the development of age-related diseases and affecting overall well-being. But the good news is that there are steps you can take to prevent or mitigate inflammaging and promote a healthier, more vibrant life.
Health Implications of Inflammaging
Inflammaging is associated with a range of health problems, including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, arthritis, and neurodegenerative conditions like Alzheimer’s disease. This chronic inflammation can accelerate the aging process, leading to cellular damage, oxidative stress, and a weakened immune system. It’s crucial to be proactive in addressing this issue to maintain your health and vitality as you age.
Four Tips to Prevent Inflammaging:
- Regular Physical Activity: Exercise is a powerful tool against inflammaging. It reduces chronic inflammation, supports a healthy cardiovascular system, and helps maintain muscle and bone strength. Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity each week, along with strength training exercises to keep your body strong and resilient.
- Eating an Anti-Inflammatory Diet: Your diet plays a significant role in controlling inflammation. Focus on whole, unprocessed foods rich in antioxidants, such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, and fatty fish. Minimize your intake of processed foods, sugary snacks, and excessive red meat. Incorporating anti-inflammatory spices like turmeric and ginger can also be beneficial.
- Manage Stress Levels: Stress is the silent killer and can fuel inflammation. Incorporate stress-reduction techniques into your daily routine, such as meditation, deep breathing exercises, or yoga. These practices can help you manage stress and promote a sense of well-being.
- Get Enough Sleep: Quality sleep is essential for overall health, including controlling inflammation. Aim for 7-9 hours of restful sleep each night. Establish a bedtime routine, limit screen time before bed, and create a comfortable sleep environment to support your sleep quality.
Incorporating these tips into your lifestyle can be a powerful way to prevent or reduce inflammaging, promoting a healthier and more vibrant journey through the years. Remember, it’s never too early or too late to start taking care of your body and investing in a healthier, happier, and younger you!
Friendships & Learned Values
Sometimes friendships are just what the doctors ordered … and we can all take some time out to invest into friendships that matter to us and equally matters to them. Mutually contributive relationships are powerful and can be even more powerful than receiving advise or support from a coach, therapist, or guru … or whoever we seek our higher wisdoms from.
Sometimes they are simply the people around you that you already have or need to connect more with.
Embrace their point of views and allow them to challenge yours. This is how we grow and expand our perspectives when we engage ourselves in conversations with others.
What’s with the pose – Partner Yoga
There are many benefits to practicing partner yoga together, including better communications (we all need this!) trust, intimacy, connection, and more. Together we can help each other relieve stress, increase strength and flexibility, and bond with each other.
Our relationships often mirror our relationships with ourselves, so through the practice of partner yoga, we can also learn more about ourselves and our partner.

Tell me about Float…
Graeme @ Reception
MEET GRAEME, a Park Ranger – Seals/Penguins/Whales Tour Guide in Philips Island and Wilson Prom, a Surfer, an Educator in all things about Wild Life loved his FIRST FLOAT with us at Liquid Room.
Being someone who spends most of his life in nature, he was in awe how blissful the FLOAT experience was and can’t wait to come back to do it again!
While Ivy was on her road trip and solo hikes, Graeme was her Whale watching guide where they witnessed a male and female humpback courting where they were singing on the surface of the water! Highly unusual since whale singing is mostly recorded under water!
