Hunza valley of Pakistan
Would you believe me if I told anyone he meets a group of people who have lived more than 100 years staying healthy? For a small tribe living in the heights of the Himalayas, they live on average 100 years and even there have been cases of people who have reached 130 years.
This is the Hunza valley of Pakistan, a tribe living in the valley of Hunza River on the border where converge the boundaries of Kashmir, China, India and Afghanistan. Its population is small, no more than 30,000 inhabitants, and is unusually healthy and happy. Virtually no known disease or old age, older adults play sports even 100 years and women 40 years could easily be mistaken for youth 25. Best of all? His elixir of life is based on three simple routines: eating an organic and fresh food, drinking alkaline water and exercise daily.
In 1970, when the road linking the ancient silk routes from Pakistan to China was built, National Geographic described this tribe as one of the longest that existed on earth. This isolated light eyes and fair complexion, population identified as the lost descendants of the army of Alexander the Great when he invaded India.
Among the rituals to which many attribute their impressive ability to maintain their youth and health, are their regular periods of fasting, a water bath even frost in those days where the temperature does not rise above -15 ° C, practice sports games or walk and work in the mountainous terrain daily and eat high amounts of raw fruits and vegetables during the summer and dried apricots, sprouted grains and pecorino in the winter.
