Dietary modifications can help maintain the right pH within the body’s various systems, so the foods you eat have to include the ones that support organs that work so hard to maintain pH values within their optimal ranges.
The average life span of a person in the United States is 78 years old. Genetics could account for only 30% of a person's life expectancy. Taking good care of our health through diet, exercise, supplements and managing our emotions effectively plays an important part in achieving longevity.
One of the most important structures that safeguard DNA consists of what are called telomeres. There are a wide variety of herbs and nutrients that have been linked to healthy telomeres.
No matter what you’ve been led to believe Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and cognitive decline are not a normal part of aging, and they are preventable. While prevention is always best of course, effective treatment for those who are already suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and cognitive decline is important.
Is the effect of drinking hydrogen water too good to be true? Dr. Whitaker thought so at first. But the deeper he delved into the hundreds of scientific papers examining the effects of hydrogen therapy, also called molecular hydrogen or H2 therapy, on scores of health challenges, the more he became convinced this is a true scientific breakthrough.
Magnesium is almost as basic as air and water for healthy living. For those who are ill and magnesium deficient taking magnesium is almost like taking a breath, when one is out of air. When one combines transdermal magnesium therapy with magnesium bicarbonate water one can expect dramatic results as one would expect in an emergency room or intensive care unit when taking these medicines intravenously.
It is well-documented that the most prevalent cardiovascular, metabolic and cognitive disorders impacting healthcare are largely the result of the loss of available nitric oxide (NO) in the body. NO deficiency is the basis for endothelial dysfunction which underlies the development of these disorders that plague the population. Consequently, NO is considered the molecule that now offers the means for profoundly altering the disturbing trends in public health.
What is a good lifestyle to insure great heart health and long life? Should you eat saturated fats or not? Does your cholesterol really matter? How much exercise is necessary? Read what Dr. Sinatra, cardiologist, has to share and take the Heart Health Questionnaire to see how you fare.
The telomere is the "tail" of each chromosome in your cells. When you were young your telomeres were long. As you age, and your cells divide, all your telomeres shorten. Wouldn't it be great if we could slow your telomere shortening process, or activate telomerase? Well, there is a way, says Dr. Robert Rowen.
Chaga grows on birch trees in cold regions such as Siberia, northern Canada, Alaska, and some northern parts of the continental United States. It is of particular importance because it has been found to have a wide range of medicinal properties. The life span of the Inuit, who lived in a climate similar to that of the Siberians, was only 40 to 50 years on average, whereas people in the Siberian tribes who consumed Chaga routinely lived to be 90 to 110.
Skin aging is driven by genetics, time, and environmental factors. Fortunately, your skin is wonderfully responsive to the right kind of self-care for both prevention and damage reversal. The trick, says Dr. Susan Lark, is to understand the biggest causes of aging skin and meet your skin's special needs.
The 19th Annual Anti-Aging Medicine Conference addressed critical areas of healthcare today including interventions for chronic fatigue, cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cognitive decline, osteoporosis, new approaches to skin care, hormone balancing, detoxification protocols and many others.
Telomeres ordinarily shrink by 1% annually, from birth to death. The telomeres of people with unhealthy habits have much faster shrinkage, while those of people with the best habits and genes shrink at a slower rate, thus enabling such people to live to approximately 100 years. Ultimately, telomere health is a major determinant of health and longevity. Rejuvenation or regrowth of telomeres is, therefore, a major key to longevity and health.
For several years Dr. C. Norman Shealy has been measuring leukocyte telomeres initially and then observing telomere regeneration when individuals use the RejuvaMatrix Solar Homeopathy® mat 30 to 60 minutes daily. Twenty seven of 34 individuals followed at least one year had significant increases in telomere length. This is the first known demonstration of regeneration of telomeres.
The Age Management Medicine Conference is an opportunity for practitioners to learn about options available to help their patients age gracefully. Many of the presentations deal with hormone supplementation, functional medicine and endocrine balance.
The 17th Annual Anti-Aging Medicine Conference emphasized Regenerative Biomedical Technologies. These conferences cover a broad scope of topics in the field of anti-aging. Review the impressive list of speakers!
