Life is only boring when at the end you discover nothing happened. This cannot be said of his life. Born in 1960 he started off facing death by Asthma. An uncountable amount of times he passed the border between life and death but was saved by his parents, sisters and a slow developing knowledge of the disease. Dr. Brokmuller made his life work by saving asthma patients and Arnaud was one of his lucky survivors. Facing death in the eye made him seeking for the truth of living, the value of life.
Life was a battlefield not only to stay alive but also to survive and create a destiny in life. This is probably the main reason why Martial Arts did attract him all his life. The ultimate fight with yourself while competing with others. Competition is not a measuring of yourself against others but more a status quo of a level on a specific moment in time. Collecting knowledge, organize it and make it available to others became a mission at a very early age.
Directed by teachers Arnaud van der Veere started his lifelong study in chemistry. People who practice Martial Arts have always be seen as aggressive, low educated and more or less dumb by the educated world. This stigma was often used against him while starting a carrier in science. His progress was through the long way. From MAVO he went to MBO which he finished in one year to move on to the HBO that stood for 2 years at that time. Last year he got a job and opportunity to study at the TU Delft where he studied, finished and worked until 1983.
During his study, he did build a sports career in Muay Thai and writing. His articles were published in many different magazines. When he left his job at the University his next move was to open a business and traveled more around Asia. Study and sport proved to be his passions. Thousands of articles on different topics are published and from 1984 until 2016 more than 22 (international) books were published. His interest and topics vary but all are focused on human health and interpersonal relationships.
Since 2002 Arnaud did focus again on the chemical aspects of health and life and returned to his major topics of health and supplementations, aging and psychology. In 2017 he was appointed Professor at the ZUST University in Hangzhou, China.
Advises on lifestyle for your personal Age Control:
Live a regular life. Use your biological clock as a guide. How?
Sleep enough. How much is personal between 4 – 8 hours. Never longer. Long sleep is bad sleep.
Eat enough. Use the 80% rule as a guide. Never eat till full but leave some space
Eat regularly. Get a food pattern, eat at regular intervals.
Keep the body active. Walk, cycle, run, sport or work in the garden. Be active at least 2 hours per day. Active implies a body intention of 20 – 30% of your maximum
Do power training. Lift weights or heavy objects to maintain muscular tension. This accounts for male and female alike. Heavy is relative and depends on body weight, gender, fitness level and other facts measured with a licensed specialist.
For some people, cardiovascular training is a need.
Have the right level of hygiene. Do not overdo cleaning. Dirt is also a part of our physical resistance training. When your body is not able to defend itself due to much cleaning you have a problem.
Take care of your health. Try regular checks and when not sure, visit a doctor. But do not accept medication to easy. Ask and understand before you use anything.
Have good social contacts, join clubs, meetings or other social gatherings.
Everything that concerns a good physical and mental condition starts with social interactive knowledge. Sharing is caring is not just a saying but it actually helps you to benefit and grow a healthy long lasting life.
