Kazım Gürbüz, A 95-Year-Old Yogi From Turkey Who Looks Half His Age. In an interview with the Daily Hurriyet, Turkish Gürbüz says the secrets to his youthful looks are keeping his body flexible and eating superfoods including olives and chestnut honey. –
He also recommends pinto beans, peppers, pepper sauce, herbal tea, and soup. “Less beneficial is meat, [which causes] most damage. There is protein in all [pulses], you do not necessarily need to eat meat,” Gürbüz says.
Gürbüz broke his back when he was 41, leaving him paralysed from the waist down. Doctors said he would never walk again.
But Gürbüz had other ideas. He convinced friends to crack his vertebra bones back into place: “I conducted 63 different experiments on myself… I was born again. Nine months [after the experiment] I began to walk. ‘Miracle!’” they said.
“We can live to be 130 years old. I have such an intention… everyone has the power.”
“They are aware of the power that they use internal and power… [If] they take good care of their bodies. Then they will live to age like me.”
