Aging reversal with sears
This item is a newsletter from Dr Sears who i have been following from the beginning of this blog. He is working closely on the aging front and has determined what works best. He also has been experimenting with direct telomere therapies as much as possible.
There is much in his work that is applied good sense and some of that i came upon my self from other directions.
What i do find amusing and i do not think that i got there directly from reading his newsletters is that my present protocol that i personally use is recommended by this newsletter.
I consume 2000 mg of D and around 5000 mg of C. The C i dissolve now in a jug of water with two slices of lemon at room temperature to consume all day. I sometimes throw in some lutein as well 2000 mg.
I also take a capsule of CoQ with omega 3 to manage my low Statin med i still use to affect cholesterol levels. Thus i am getting the exact mix recommended.
I also control blood pressure and heart rate and my weight hovers perhaps ten to fifteen pounds over plausible ideal which happens to be fifty pounds below what i dealt with my entire adult life. I am back to basic training weights... .
It is now thirteen years since i suffered a major heart attack - twenty minutes without a heart beat but with CPR. Last look see found no sign of new inflammation and all original problems have been stented up. The surgeon declared that my risk is now very low. Cannot ask for more.
I have been informed from the other side that i will see my one hundredth birthday in 2048. Thus it is important to protect my general health as a matter of course and to not push my luck. So far so good.
When I was in medical school, most scientists thought the idea that you could reverse aging was a joke.
as soon as I learned about telomeres — even before the research earned a
Nobel Prize — I knew it could change lives. And I was right. By helping
my patients keep their telomeres long they’ve experienced sharper
memories, more energy, perfect blood sugar and healthy hearts.
the medical establishment completely ignores this discovery. It’s stuck
on turning this science into another synthetic drug for Big Pharma.
That’s where the big money is.
And now they think they’re on the verge…
group of scientists at the University of California, Berkeley has come
up with the first detailed picture of the molecular structure of human
telomerase. Telomerase is an enzyme that rebuilds the telomere. They
used advanced technology called “cryo-electron microscopy” to make 3-D
images of the enzyme.1
What do they want to do with this new technology?
They want to use it to design new drugs to activate telomerase and market their new big money-making machine.
a minute, I’ll tell you how you can naturally activate your telomerase —
without Big Pharma’s dangerous drugs — right from your own home.
know that telomeres protect your DNA strands from fraying at the ends.
They’re like the plastic tips on the end of a shoelace.
your cells divide, telomeres wear down. When your telomeres get too
short, your cells stop dividing. New cells no longer replace damaged
ones. You’re left with older cells that lead to all of the diseases we
associate with aging.
In other words, telomeres control the aging process.
telomeres dramatically boost your risk of serious diseases. And
increasing telomere length helps fight almost all “diseases of aging.”
a pioneer in telomere science, I’ve been helping my patients protect
and lengthen their telomeres for decades. I do this by helping them
activate telomerase naturally.
you turn telomerase on, your telomeres gradually get longer. Your body
starts creating younger cells. And by activating telomerase you can
improve and support your heart function, kidney function, memory and
vision. You can recharge your sexual desire, breathe easier, look
younger and feel younger.
In other words, you can reverse the aging process.
you won’t hear that from the American Medical Association. They’ve been
silent about telomeres and would rather continue their witch-hunt
against anti-aging medicine and doctors.2
That’s why I help my patients take control of how they age by activating telomerase naturally.
Activate Your Telomerase Today to Reverse Signs of Aging
Here’s what you can do right now to activate telomerase and lengthen your telomeres.
First, get some sunshine. If you can’t get 20 minutes of sun
daily, start out with 2,000 IU every day of vitamin D3. And the next
time you get blood work ask your practitioner to test your vitamin D
levels so you’ll know if you need more.
In one study of
telomerase, people took either a placebo or 2,000 IU of vitamin D a day.
After only four months, telomerase activity in the vitamin D group
skyrocketed by 19.2%. Those taking the dummy pill had no change.3
Then, take a potent antioxidant. Raising the level of vitamin C in your cells stimulates telomerase. It could slow down the shortening of telomeres up to 62%.4 To
protect telomeres, I recommend taking 5,000 mg to 8,000 mg every day.
Be sure to divide that amount into smaller doses throughout the day.
And, eat more fat. Omega-3 fatty acids activate telomerase. A study in the Journal of the American Medical Association found
patients with the lowest levels of omega-3 fats had the fastest
telomere shortening. Those with the highest levels had the slowest
Your body can’t make omega-3s. You have
to get it from food. Some of the best food sources are wild, cold-water
fish like fresh mackerel, pink salmon and snapper.
But I’ve found
most people need to supplement. Try to get 3 grams of omega-3s a day. I
recommend krill and calamari oil. They’re not polluted like regular
Finally, boost this red wine compound. Studies show
resveratrol activates telomerase. It also “turns on” genes that promote
longevity and “turns off” genes that promote disease.
wine is a good source of resveratrol. But you’d need to drink gallons
of wine to get the telomere benefits. That’s why I recommend
supplements. Take at least 50 mg per day for telomerase activation. But
resveratrol is safe, so you could take up to 200 mg per day.
