This is 95-year-old yoga master Kazım Gürbüz, who looks closer to 50 than 100. Gürbüz still enjoys an active love life and believes everyone can live to be 130 if they follow a couple of simple rules.
“We can live to be 130 years old. I have such an intention… everyone has the power.” he says.
His greatest secret however, lies in the way he looks. Many people believe that Kazım is doing some magic to be eternally young. But the “Fountain of Youth” according to Kazım is simpler than that.
In an interview with the Daily Hurriyet, Turkish Gürbüz, he says the secrets to his youthful looks are keeping his body flexible, eating superfoods including olives and chestnut honey, and avoiding meat at any cost.
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.”
He believes it was more of mind over matter.
Today Gürbüz looks like a 50 year old, lives like 40 year old, acts like 30 year old and feels like 20 year old thanks to his diet, strong mind and will. The yogi is able to perform the ‘knot position’ for up to 48 hours, can hold his breath for between 4-5 minutes, and have orgasms between 3-5 times every day.
“I am the same as when I was 25-30 years old.”
For Gürbüz, life begins at 65.
“They are aware of the power that they use, internal power… [If] they take good care of their bodies. Then they will live to age like me.”
