He isn't just staying alive. He's livin' it up.
Meet yoga master KazÄ±m GÃ¼rbÃ¼z. Although it may be nearly impossible to believe, he's 95 years old. Yes, people. You read that right.
GÃ¼rbÃ¼z still enjoys a highly active lifestyle and believes anyone can live to be 130 if they take care of their bodies the right way. I know, it's easy to laugh at and say "this is just some more internet." But let me assure you, this man is the real deal.
In an interview with the Daily Hurriyet, the Turkish health fanatic says the secrets to his unbelievable health are keeping his body flexible and eating superfoods such as olives and chestnut honey.
He also prescribes foods like pinto beans, peppers, herbal tea, and soup. â€œLess beneficial is meat, [which causes] most damage. There is protein in all [pulses], you do not necessarily need to eat meat."
To make GÃ¼rbÃ¼z's story even more incredible, when he was 41 he broke his back. Doctors told him that he was permanently paralyzed and would never walk again.
But GÃ¼rbÃ¼z had other plans. After realizing he had nothing to lose, he convinced friends to crack his vertebra back into place.
â€œI conducted 63 different experiments on myselfâ€¦ I was born again. Nine months [after the experiment] I began to walk. â€˜Miracle!â€™â€ they said.
The proficient yogi states that yoga was also a big component of his healing. Even still, he's able to perform the â€˜knot positionâ€™ for up to 48 hours.
For GÃ¼rbÃ¼z, life isn't just far from over...
In many ways, it's still just beginning.
â€œWe can live to be 130 years old. I have such an intentionâ€¦ everyone has the power.â€
Whether or not you believe it's possible, GÃ¼rbÃ¼z's aspirations and health are more than inspiring. I think it's safe to say any of us would be perfectly happy being in his shape at 65, much less 95!
