In an effort to address life-altering illnesses and disabilities, more and more residents are being given increasing doses of medications as the days pass. Anyone who wishes to live a comfortable and happy life in their later years does not want to spend the rest of their life taking medication for problems like high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, and other chronic health disorders.

According to Dr. Stephen T. Sinatra, taking more than five different types of medications daily can cause a variety of symptoms, including weakness, fatigue, falls, constipation, diarrhea, lack of sleep, confusion, and heart arrhythmias. Since many of these symptoms affect the elderly, it may seem impossible to live a happy life.

There are many vegetables that do more for your body than most people think. Mushrooms have been shown to strengthen your immune system, heart, and brain, and “Salmon, sardines, and other fatty fish fight inflammation due to their high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which also protect against heart disease.” Vegetables like broccoli and kale provide your body with antioxidants, which will help lower your risk of heart disease, detoxify your blood, and prevent nutrient deficiencies.

In order to improve these remedial foods and make them the new prescription for the elderly and the rest of their family, Lustre Craft Cookware focuses on helping people live longer, healthier lives by using our stainless steel waterless cookware to prepare healthy foods, the Vapor Seal technology preserves the majority of the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that would otherwise be lost during most conventional cooking techniques like boiling, frying, and steaming. Many of our grateful clients have used our cookware as a tool to improve their health, and many of them have succeeded in doing so—from losing weight to getting off medication!
