Hello, please do enrol yourself with a good wellness/health coach who can guide you holistically.

You may need some therapeutic yoga, some natural supplements like triphala, ashwagandha, noni juice, etc.

You may require some form of mindfulness/meditation techniques, some breathing exercises and some massages to aid you towards wellness.

If it is not happening only with diet, then you have to be under daily guidance for 4-6 months.

I feel if you work with a good wellness coach, you should start improving greatly. Even your joint pain should start reducing.

B: Can you recommend any particular workout for all parts of body. Asking for a 55 year old male.

Hello B, every body is different. It will be best if you can go to a physiotherapist or a gym trainer.

They need to first assess your body composition, core strength, muscle tone and accordingly they can give you a proper exercises schedule involving all part of your body.

Also, suryanamskar is a wonderful exercise that helps the entire body.

All the best!
