I am back from some amazing training on geriatric neurology. The presenter was 72 years old and as energetic as you can get! She took us out in the sand to do Tai Chi, helped us learn about physically handling clients (lifting, turning, etc.), and was a very lively person. I have met energetic 105 yo, 102 y/o, 99 and so on. I do not go by age, but by peoples allergies and such that make them function in patterns we term as old. So if an 84 year old comes in and doesn't want to exercise due to being too old I do not buy into it. I am about getting better and not sickology, or why you are the way you are and how you can't get well. You can work with your soul and get well. It is telling you NOT to eat sugars, not to drink alcohol, not to smoke, etc. You just are not listening, do not want to hear the message, are maybe like a child and saying "you can't make me!"
IT IS NOT ABOUT MAKING YOU. IT IS ABOUT YOU BECOMING THE REAL YOU!
