As ghee is a saturated fatty acid, won’t harm to those who uses it properly. Proper usage of ghee is always with hot articles like: hot rice, hot roti, hot chapati etc Not with curds or vegetables.

Take out time for some physical activities such alike brisk walking, swimming, yoga, deep breathing etc. In diet you need to restrict all junk foods, refined cereals, spices. Oil which you can use is olive oil and strictly avoid ghee, butter etc. If you are non-vegetarian then you have to restrict red meat and you can have chicken, fish twice a week that too prepared at home.

At your age of 60 years you need to take stock of your abilities. You are no more young or capable of learning new things fast. Talk to other persons of your age and join some group of elders and talk about your gradually failing capacities. At the same time retain whatever you still have. Try and maintain active life style with your abilities. If you develop anxiety while learning new things, go slowly step by step and take the help from your children or preferably from your grandchildren.
