Healthy Longevity Tips: How To Live Long Like 123 Years Old Bolivian Aymara Herder
Healthy Longevity Tips: How To Live Long Like 123 Years Old Bolivian Aymara Herder - Carmelo Flores Laura

Do you know this man? Look familiar? No he is not a wanted man! Well he is a Bolivian Aymara herder and if Bolivia's public records are correct, this Aymara herder, Carmelo Flores Laura is the oldest living person ever documented. Guess how old he is...


He is 123 years and a month old. That makes him the world's oldest person!

Healthy Longevity Tips: How To Live Long Like 123 Years Old Bolivian Aymara Herder
Healthy Longevity Tips: How To Live Long Like 123 Years Old Bolivian Aymara Herder - Aymara Village
He is a native Aymara, lives in a straw-roofed dirt-floor hut in an isolated hamlet near Lake Titicaca at 13,100 feet (4,000 meters), is illiterate, speaks no Spanish and has no teeth. He walks without a cane and doesn't wear glasses. And though he speaks Aymara with a firm voice, one must talk into his ear to be heard.
Longevity Food For Thought
Makes me wonder whether rich people ever live this long even with all the technology to try and cheat death

Carmelo Longevity Lifestyle
Carmelo obviously owes his longevity to his lifestyle which the benefit cannot be denied. Like most Bolivian highlands peasants, Carmelo Flores Laura has been chewing coca leaf, a mild stimulant that staves off hunger all his life.
"I walk a lot, that's all. I go out with the animals," says Flores, who long herded cattle and sheep. "I don't eat noodles or rice, only barley. I used to grow potatoes, beans, oca (an Andean tuber)." 
He says he doesn't drink alcohol, but imbibed some in his youth. He's eaten a lot of mutton, and though he likes pork it is hardly available. He fondly remembers hunting and eating fox as a younger man.The water Flores drinks originates on the snow-capped peak of Illampu, one of Bolivia's highest. 
Flores says he has never been farther afield than La Paz, 80 kilometers (50 miles) away, and has never been seriously ill.
Summary Of Carmelo Longevity Tips
We will take Carmelo's healthy longevity lifestyle tips one at a time in his words and break it down in health terms.

Live In A Straw Roofed Dirt Floor Hut which means Live A Simple Life. You do yourself a great disservice when you worry so much about any and everything. The strain becomes unbearable to your health. You fling your health gate wide open to problems like high blood pressure. Just curious, do the wealthy individuals in our society ever live this long?

Chew Lots Of Cocoa Leaf which means Don't Eat Every Time Your Stomach Grunts. They say give to the pig when the pig grunts and to the child when the child cries and you will have a fat pig and a spoilt child. I say you will have a fat pig and an obese spoilt child. Fight your cravings or they will fight you down. Try to control how often you eat. This is also very good for people watching their weight. How can you be disciplined in watching your weight when at the slightest 'abdominal provocation'

Walk A Lot As An Animal Herder which means Exercise Regular. Walking is a very good form of exercise to keep fit. The health benefits of walking is tremendous as you can see with this Bolivian Aymara herder. Next to walking is running. The health benefits of running is also great. It's a long term medical investment in one's good health.

Don't Drink Alcohol. This point is self explanatory. Although a little intake of alcohol has health benefits for your body system, Carmelo says he doesn't drink alcohol now. He drank in his youth. The alcohol he drank in his youth can be likened to drinking a healthy dosage of alcohol now. Serious health implication arises when alcohol intake is abused.

Drink Water From Snow-capped Mountains which mean always drink clean, fresh pure water. Unclean water can land you a long stay in the hospital. Make sure you purify your water properly before drinking to avoid water borne diseases. Nothing can replace water. Don't drink juice or soft drinks in place of water when you are tasty, it won't work.

Don't Go Beyond 50 Miles which means Do Moderate Exercise. Even though exercise is good, excess or too much of it is bad for your health. Well they say too much of everything is bad.

I'm wondering is too much of making money and too? That's is for this post. I hoped you have learnt something from this man, Carmelo, the oldest Bolivian Aymara herder and also the oldest man in the world. Apply it to your life and you might end up taking the title from him.

My Diary: Saturday 16-02-2013
Woke up early cuz I gotta run today. I made it Lekki on time but we started the run late. Today we did '15km' not the usual 10km. Im not really sure I did the full 15km cuz of the route I took. Today's running wasnt so good for me. First my stomach ached like mad just after I started. I had to endure the pain till it stopped. Next I felt so weak. I had to stop to reenergize, something I have never done before. Anyway I still did the run and finished gallantly.

But afterwards I was so tired. I was supposed to see Enque today at Ozone, mehn can I make it in this state? Who knows! We already spoke and she wasn’t taking any rain check as usual so Im not about to do same either. Don’t even know what to wear. Well Imma rock my blue jean shirt and black jean trouser but mehn its freaking hot to dress like. Unfortunately I dont have a choice. I relaxed a bit at Lekki before heading. I was extremely tired.

Got home showered and headed out. When I got home though, the room was smelling like filth and my door was locked from inside by Ibe or his wife, how come? They always accused their last daughter Praise of always locking the door, Praise is no longer here. Did Praise come from the east to lock the door? Traffic wasnt much but the sweat was expected. Finally I made it to Ozone at e-Center Yaba. As expected, Enque is yet to arrive. She hates to wait for someone at places like this. She said she hates to wait around like she has no job. But its perfectly ok for me to wait around like I had no job now. I waited some more before she showed up.

Meanwhile I feel so sleepy and tired. We chilled at chicken republic and chatted about this and that. It was really nice to see her. Cough catarrh still worrying though it allowed me to enjoy myself with Enque. Now its time for us to head home. I took Obalende bus from Yaba, she took the bus going her way. We ran into this terrible traffic along Lekki Epe expressway from second roundabouts. We crawled till we got Nicon Town estate when the road freed up. Though I slept through most of the way just to reduce the agonizing impact of the traffic, I still feel sleepy. I feel like Im drunk. I was only able to sleep in the night.
