3 Weeks to Better Balance

When you are young, balance is an automatic reflex and you can quickly recover from a trip or stand up after a fall.  

However, studies show that balance naturally begins to decline after age 40 and the National Institute of Health reports that one in three people aged 65 will suffer a fall each year.

…”Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries in older adults.”

National Council on Aging

Balance For Life has a complete Balance Improvement and Fall Prevention program that is guaranteed to measurably improve your balance in 3 weeks.

Your balance is regulated by 5 Factors:

  1. Vision
  2. Reflexes
  3. Muscle Mass and Strength
  4. Proprioception (The ability to feel the body in space)
  5. Inner Ear

Changes linked to growing older or sedentary lifestyles affect all of these areas:

  1. Weaker eyesight
  2. Slower reflexes
  3. Weak and stiff muscles and joints
  4. Poor circulation (leads to lack of physical sensation)
  5. Vertigo / Dizziness (due to deposits or crystals in inner ear)

As you get older you may exercise less, gain weight, and start to feel less confident in your body and your balance.

However, the good news is that with a proper exercise and mindfulness program, almost anyone can improve their balance.

But, don’t only take our word for it, listen to what these major health organizations say!

…”Do strength and balance exercises that make your legs stronger such as yoga and Tai Chi.”

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

…”Strength and balance exercises can help you prevent falls and avoid the disability that may result from falling.”

NIH National Institute on Aging

…”To prevent falls…find a good balance and exercise program.”

National Council on Aging
