“Old age, like everything else, to make a success of it, you’ve got to start young.” This famous line by Theodore Roosevelt says it all.
In the race against time and the ravages it brings, there is an urgent search for regimens that can delay the aging process, and better yet, reverse it.
Dr. Ron Rottenberg, who is at the forefront of preventive/regenerative medicine in the US and founder of the California Health Span Institute, shares his new approaches to antiaging—namely, hormone replacement, nutrition, exercise and major lifestyle changes.
This, in order to prevent and/or reverse health challenges like cancer, Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular disease, weak immune systems, and frail bones and limbs.
It is a journey, after all—one that begins with the first step. But despite our many missed steps, there is always room for recovery and regeneration.
Testosterone is a hormone found in and needed by both men and women. Its properties are anabolic (to build muscle), as well as bone and cartilage.
A 10-year study of 11,000 men, published in circulation, conclusively showed that the higher the testosterone levels, the lower the mortality from cancer and heart disease.
Apoptosis or programmed cell death is the natural process all cells undergo in the body. On the other hand, necrosis, which is unprogrammed cell death, is associated with inflammation. The companion of disease is the much-dreaded inflammation.
In short, to stay healthy, we must turn off inflammation through:
Keeping hormones balanced and within the normal range
Stress management and reduction
Staying lean and fit
Keeping blood sugar levels normal
Avoiding animal fat
Taking antioxidant supplement
Increasing omega-3 fish oil or flaxseed oil
Resveratrol (the polyphenols found in red wine, the highest content of which is in pinot noir)
Curcumin (in turmeric, milk thistle and echinacea)
Eating fruits and vegetables (which is necessary for liver detoxification)
There are many hormones produced by the body. Dr. Thierry Hertoghe, president of the World Society of Antiaging, explains what hormones are produced where:
Kidneys—EPO (erythropoietin), which converts thyroid hormone T-4 into active T-3
Ovaries—estrogen, progesterone androgen
Testicles—testosterone and dihydrosterone.
He stresses the fact that all the hormones work in harmony towards the well-being of the individual. But it is the growth hormone that works in unison with all the other hormones. Growth hormone plays a major role in the language of hormones.
Many revelations can emerge from one-on-one conversations, most especially with someone knowledgeable on wellness. This was the result of my hour-long discussion with Dr. John Pinches of Los Alamitos Medical Center, an OB-gyne based in Los Angeles with a 20-year practice behind him.
He was in search of something more that could upgrade quality of life for both men and women. He pursued further studies on preventive medicine, specifically on diabetes and antiaging.
Directly to the brain
Dr. Pinches observed that the daily consumption of growth hormone (GH) delivered through the latest nano technology delivers 2,000 nano grams of GH directly to the brain’s pituitary gland. The effect on his patients has been dramatic.
Take the cases of Harry, Gemma and Clara.
Harry, a married man in his late 40s, was experiencing mild erectile dysfunction. In a bid to revive his virility, he resorted to over-the-counter drugs. While it had a positive effect on him, the results were not lasting. Besides, he wanted to wean himself away from synthetic drugs/hormones.
When he discovered plant-based GH nano spray, at once he felt relief from his anxieties. What’s more, his libido is consistently up.
Gemma, a 50-year-old breast-cancer survivor, did not lose much of her hair after chemotherapy. She was placed under GH therapy before and after chemo sessions. Today, a post-cancer and chemo survivor, she has a full head of hair.
Clara, an ambitious businesswoman in her 30s, would wake up every morning feeling exhausted. Suffering from mood swings and insomnia, she was dependent on mood-enhancing prescription drugs and sleep inducers.
After switching to GH spray, she has since regained her boundless energy and her beauty sleep—the natural way.
Dr. Pinches explains that the traditional way of introducing GH into the body was through injectibles. But this method tended to be abused by athletes who sought optimal performance.
This, because GH increases stamina and performance levels, to that of someone in his/her 20s. However, withdrawal from high doses of injectible GH can cause body aches and pains.
Through the newest breakthrough “Fountain of Youth,” the GH spray, fears of an overdose are allayed. The GH delivery via nano technology was invented by Dr. Robert Lawrence, a California-based scientist and researcher.
He developed a way to place human growth hormone in a plant-based polymer matrix, which successfully secures the HGH molecule in place. Three sprays sublingually, twice daily (a.m. and p.m.), held in the mouth for 30 seconds, delivers the GH to the brain (bypassing the liver). The desired effect is immediate.
Today’s affirmation: “I am getting younger and younger.”
