Amazing 95-year-old Man Who Looks Half His Age
Despite the fact that Kazim Gurbuz, a Turkish Yoga Guru, was born in 1920, he looks almost half his age. And another astonishing thing about Kazim’s story is that he had a terrible car accident at the age of 41 which may have led to paralysis, but he survived it.
To Kazim, doing the right things is the key to living to a ripe old age as he believes that it’s possible for everyone to live till the age of 130. In fact, to him, life starts at the age of 65. “We can live to be 130 years old, I have such an intention… everyone has the power if they take good care of themselves. Then they will live to age like me.” He said in an interview.
One of Gurbuz’s important rituals is greeting the sun every morning before heading for a swim, he does this because he believes the sun is a great source of energy. He is a keen yoga enthusiast and he practices a lot of difficult yoga positions such as the “knot pose” for as much as 48hours. He can also hold his breath for between four and five minutes. He also claims to be sexually active, having three to five orgasms every day. “I am the same as I was when I was 25-30 years old,” he said. “They challenged me to prove it in Europe, so I did.”
At the age of 41, Gurbuz was involved in a very bad car accident which resulted in a broken back. He couldn’t make use of his legs as he was paralyzed from his waist down, with doctors predicting that he would never be able to walk again. This kind of situation would have been devastating for a lot of people but Gurbuz is not an ordinary man, he simply set out to fix the damage by giving his friends the freedom to crack the bones in his vertebrae back into place.
“At the time I had money, women adored me, and I got so carried away with success that God punished me,” he said. “I conducted 63 different experiments on myself,” he said. “I was born again. Nine months later, I began to walk.” Although it sounds like a miracle, Gurbuz insisted that it was no such thing. “Man uses his brain power if applied correctly and the brain can regenerate muscles and nervous system.”
He added that “I was reborn, but I made a mistake, I now have a bump in my waist. I could have prevented that if I had tied a stick to my back (when he had his vertebrae cracked back into place).”
Understandably, Gurbuz is now a full-fledged celebrity and a sensation of some sorts on Turkish social media, more so after his interview was published by the Daily Hurriyet; an article where he claims “Mohammad Ali had once saw me shaping my body and said I was even greater than him.”
