There is a place on our planet where people are happy, live more than 100 years and can stay young until old age. It is not a fictitious place, but rather a real place, located territorially on the border of Pakistan and India, in the valley of the Hunza River.
The people who live there are unique in many ways. Unlike many other nationalities, they do not know what cancer tumors are, they have an average life expectancy of 120 years and live and appreciate minimalism. These people live like a fairy tale, although they do not have all that in modern society is considered an attribute of success and happiness. What are your secrets for longevity? Let’s see 5 of them.
1. A vegetarian diet
This nation does not have vegetarian beliefs. Like the Islamists, they refuse to eat pork, but vegetarianism for them is partly forced. Sometimes they eat animal foods, but they do very rarely. Fruits and wheat are the basis of their diet. They get their wheat from whole grain cereals and consume mostly apricot. Throughout the season, they eat fresh, raw fruits and, during the winter, dry them. Nowadays, you can hear many nutritionists advice that your diet should be diversified. But, as the Hunza people’s experience shows, diversity and food of animal origin do not help you to be healthier and live longer. Their lives show us that vegetarianism is the ideal diet for a long and healthy life, without the risk of developing pathologies and cancers.
The citizens of the Hunza Valley do not use public transport. But they do so not only because they are in favor of an active lifestyle and a movement of love. They do not have the possibility to cross the necessary distances on wheels, so they prefer to move on foot. These people climb mountains almost every day, actively participate in the harvest and love to dance. This activity contributes greatly to the health of the body and therefore lives for so long without experiencing many diseases and problems.
3. A positive attitude
Optimistic people, who never lose heart and can enjoy what they have, live longer than others. The Hunza has this mentality: there are no boring, depressed, single people and victims among them. They do not have complexes and do not suffer from what torments Americans or average Europeans. They are oblivious to modern ideas about success, and their lives unfold in harmony, joy and pleasure.
Each person, at a given moment, is confronted with questions that can not be solved by science or even by the most advanced thinkers and philosophers. These are questions, the answer to which a person can only find himself, and differs from one person to another. But, nevertheless, the spiritual side of our life greatly influences the condition of our body in many ways. The Hunza are true Muslims, but their faith differs from traditional Islam. Everything they do in their spiritual life is their own business, and there is no room for a set of rules. Deep spirituality also contributes to good mood, health, and longevity because the lives of these people are harmonious and meaningful.
5. fast fast
Because the inhabitants of this city eat only the gifts of nature and do not have a developed economy to replace their provisions, at the end of the cold season and until the first harvest, they are forced to starve . During this period, they can only afford water impregnated with apricots. Everyone is hungry, children to the elderly. These periods of fasting are useful for the body because they allow you to begin the process of self-cleaning and stabilize the work of all organs and systems. Due to the fact that this way of life and nutrition has existed for many years and has been passed down from generation to generation, Hunza people have developed genetic resistance and the ability to withstand periods of hunger without too much stress and large losses for the body. The fact that fasting prolongs life is confirmed by science, but studies on the mechanisms of deceleration of aging are still ongoing.
