Anti-aging news

120-year lifespan:  The Hunza people have the longest average life span of any other population on earth, living disease-free, vital lives well past 120 years.  There have been many theories posited as to why the Hunza live such long lives. Is it the vigorous daily exercise that comes from navigating mountainous terrain, or the diet of raw fruits and vegetables consumed? While these factors undoubtedly contribute, over 60 years of research has shown that the key factor to the Hunza’s healthy life span is the water they drink, water that is dramatically different from the water we ingest every day.

Why is NAD+ important?

  • “You could argue NAD+ is the most important molecule in the body, maybe with the exception of ATP. But without either of them, you’re dead in about 30 seconds.” – David Sinclair

  • NAD+ is essential for:

    • Sirtuin activation

    • Metabolizing fatty acids/glucose

    • ATP (energy) production (cells that have high energy demands, like activated immune cells, are thought to require even more NAD+)

    • Activating DNA repair enzymes (specifically PARPs)

      • As DNA damage accumulates, you need even more NAD+ – it’s a vicious cycle!

  • NAD+ Levels Decline with Age

  • Without adequate NAD+, sirtuins can’t function properl

  • By the time you’re 50, your NAD+ levels are about half what they were when you were 20

Cancer  treatment news

Recent research has established that most cancers are caused by metabolic conditions -- not genetic conditions as has been thought for the past 70 years.  This new knowledge means that it is now possible to manage most cancers using nutrition to lower the glucose needed by cancer cells to grow and multiply.  The diet has published scientific data to back up the new approach to starve and kill cancer cells in the body.  This new diet, called the "Keto for Cancer" diet is explained by Dr. Seyfried, in the following video and book:

The Ketogenic Diet for Cancer fills this need. Inspired by the work of Dr. Thomas Seyfried and written by nutritionist Miriam Kalamian, this is the firs Based on the Metabolic Theory of Cancer Although evidence supporting the benefits of ketogenic diet therapies continues to mount, there is little to guide those who wish to adopt this diet as a metabolic therapy for cancer.

Sugar is a toxin.  Worst is fructose corn syrup, followed by all added sugars.  We get more sugar than we need from fruits and other fresh foods..  Cancer tumors have insulin receptor sites which channel sugar into cancer cells to provide energy needed for tumor growth.  Also, sugar is addictive.  The message is clear and unambiguous:  Stop eating sugar if you have cancer or want to prevent the onset of cancer.  Dr. Sanjay Gupta reviews the experts in this video:


Alzheimer's  treatment news

Recent research has established that a diet rich in MCT (found in some foods) can reverse the effects and symptoms of Alzheimer's disease in some patients.  The foods rich in MCT (medium chain triglicerides) content include coconut oil and palm kernel oil.  An explanation is given in this talk:  Unconventional But Effective Therapy for Alzheimer's Treatment: Dr. Mary T. Newport at TEDxUSF.  When Dr. Newport's husband Steven was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's, as a Doctor herself, she explored routine treatment options. But when his symptoms became so severe that he was not able to participate in clinical trials, her scientific deductions led to coconut oil, which has led to amazing results.

CBN News Weekend; Coconut Oil Video:     This video is an update of the success reported by Dr. Mary T. Newport, during which she used medium chain triglicerides (MCTs) as a food supplement for use by the liver in producing ketones.  The remarkable result is that her husband showed a partial reversal in Alzheimer's disease induced cognitive decline.
