What Can the World’s Blue Zones Teach Us?
Researchers estimate that in the U.S. today, the average adult life expectancy is about 77.8 years but likely to plummet due to high rates of chronic diseases — many of which are preventable with certain simple lifestyle changes. Buettner’s goals were to find key populations in the world with the highest number of centenarians (people who live over 100), deemed the ‘blue zones,’ and then take lessons learned from these populations and spread them within U.S. borders and elsewhere.
Researchers observed that people living in the blue zones share several common behavioral and lifestyle characteristics, despite being from different areas of the world and of different races, nationalities and religions.
At BlueZ health, we promote wellness by supporting five fundamental pillars of health. These include nutrition, exercise, sleep, detoxification, and stress management. Our goal is to teach you how to implement the proper tools for lifelong health and wellness, and if you have lost your health, to assist you with holistic tools to help you regain your health.
