DNA Cut-Revise-Paste Holds Back Aging

By |2019-05-16T01:46:26+00:00May 16th, 2019|Natural Health|

A revolutionary gene editing tool called CRISPR-Cas9 allows scientists to make precise changes to the DNA in any cell or organism.

You’ve probably heard of CRISPR if you follow technology news at all. It’s the breakthrough that made it easy and cheap to modify genes.

In an age when many people won’t even eat GMO foods, doing gene modifications on yourself is probably a non-starter. But stay with me a moment: The gene modifications involved here may save or extend the lives of some very sick people.

While some are fearful this new technology will be used for malicious purposes, others believe it […]

Boost Your Collagen Levels and Start to Glow from the Inside Out

By |2019-05-09T07:36:01+00:00May 9th, 2019|Natural Health|

Chances are you’ve seen collagen listed in your favorite face or body lotion or even as a supplement in the vitamin aisle. The ingredient gets a lot of buzz, but with it comes a slew of questions. What exactly is collagen? Why does your body need it? And how can increase the amount in your body?

Let’s just make a start on answering the first question: Collagen is the body’s most abundant protein…read on and I’ll unpack its many benefits. . .

Our bodies naturally produce collagen. It’s the major component of connective tissues that make up many body parts including tendons, […]

New Discovery May Put an End to Wrinkles

By |2019-05-07T13:28:41+00:00May 7th, 2019|Natural Health|

Wrinkles really could be a thing of the past thanks to a discovery by Japanese scientists.

They’ve been able to pinpoint a protein that’s vital to keeping youthful-looking skin, but which diminishes with aging. This discovery was a major achievement in itself — but it gets even better.

The researchers also identified two compounds that can stimulate the depleted protein to rejuvenate the skin.

They hope their work will eventually lead to an anti-aging skin cream. Keep reading for the full story. . .

Cells are in Competition

Over time cells suffer damage and develop some loss of tissue function. In short: they get old. […]

Guidelines on Cholesterol are Bunk

By |2019-04-18T17:46:57+00:00April 18th, 2019|Natural Health|

George Mann, an eminent 20th century American physician and scientist, called it “the greatest scientific deception of this century, perhaps of any century.”

He was referring to the idea that heart disease can be prevented or reduced by lowering elevated blood cholesterol. He is not alone. Many of today’s scientists agree with him.

Since heart disease is the leading cause of death, those with low cholesterol levels would be expected to have a lower risk of death compared to people with high levels.

But do they? Let’s find out.

The Lower the Reading The Higher The Risk

According to medical criteria, a “desirable” level of […]

4 Myths about Aging

By |2019-04-05T06:07:59+00:00April 4th, 2019|Natural Health|

Not long ago, most folks – including scientists – believed that our bodies simply wear out as we age. And that does seem to be sort of a common sense way of looking at it. So most of us resigned ourselves to the march of time, which meant achy joints, fragile bones, withering muscles, failing eyesight, wrinkled skin and unreliable memory.

But before you start wallowing in this defeatist mentality, take a look at some inspiring new research that proves you can stem the tide of physical aging.

Below we’ll debunk four common myths about how the body ages …

#1 Myth: You […]

Beyond Stem Cells: Is There an Anti-Aging Serum in the Works?

By |2019-04-05T06:03:28+00:00April 1st, 2019|Natural Health|

I was sitting in the audience as Sheldon Jordan, MD, told of his amazing recovery from a terrible accident, all thanks to a revolutionary new treatment that may be the most exciting breakthrough I’ve heard of in years. Here’s Dr. Sheldon in his own words:

“Four weeks ago I was involved in a very severe motorcycle accident where I almost died. I had eleven rib fractures. I suffered a fractured dislocation of my ankle, and my foot was just hanging like loose skin. I also had a compound fracture of my clavicle, lacerated my liver, kidney and adrenal gland and lost […]

This Leaf Could Hold the Key to Slowing the Aging Process

By |2019-03-21T10:22:40+00:00March 21st, 2019|Natural Health|

In many of the programs or protocols for adding years to your life, a certain biological activity must occur if the plan is actually going to work.

This applies whether it’s a life-extending nutrient, herb or drug that’s being tested, or whether the treatment involves genetic manipulation. It’s also a key reason why intermittent fasting and exercise contribute to a healthier and longer life.

The biological activity is called autophagy. This means “self-eating” and refers to a process wherein the body feeds on its own “garbage” – dead or dying cells, cellular debris.

In an exciting new development, scientists have found for the […]

How Aging and Testosterone Loss Go Hand in Hand – Or Don’t

By |2019-03-14T13:20:10+00:00March 14th, 2019|Natural Health|

Healthy testosterone levels are critical for men’s general health, disease risk, body composition, sexual function, and the list goes on. This important steroid hormone is produced in men’s testicles, and in smaller amounts, women’s ovaries.

Keeping testosterone levels healthy is especially important as men age. It’s well-known that low “T” is associated with a number of unhealthy medical conditions, e.g. diabetes and Alzheimer’s.

But there seem to be some misconceptions about what causes testosterone decline. To that point, Australian scientists examined the issue in a 2011 study.1

Scientists now say a decline in testosterone levels as men age is likely the result – […]

Latest Stem Cell Findings are Mind-Blowing

By |2019-02-28T12:59:00+00:00February 28th, 2019|Natural Health|

The potential for using stem cells to repair every organ in your body is truly mind-blowing. These microscopic wonder-cells hold the key to rejuvenating the body. Within our lifetimes – in fact, within a few years – we’re going to see them fight aging and used to treat a stunning list of diseases.

But research into how to best use these cells is complicated. There’s still more work to be done. And while there have been impressive breakthroughs, there are important cautions you need to know before you rush to a stem cell clinic to get your youth back.

Here’s what I […]

Restore Youthfulness by Blitzing Zombie Cells

By |2019-02-21T16:45:28+00:00February 21st, 2019|Natural Health|

The dream of a long, healthy and energetic lifespan has come one step closer thanks to breakthrough research.

The promising anti-aging strategy is to clear old, damaged cells from the body. These are called senescent cells but I think of them as “zombie” cells. They build up in our tissues, promote chronic inflammation and go hand in hand with the so-called diseases of aging.

Like the creatures in those popular horror movies, legions of zombie cells take over the body and kill off healthy tissue – and eventually us.

Scientists have been mystified by the exact role of the immune system in this […]
