What’s the ONLY Disease? (Hint… It’s not Aging)

Last Saturday, I got two complimentary articles that may surprise you (if you haven’t been paying attention to me the past few years ☺).

Every time I get one like this, it makes me want to climb the highest mountain and scream to the world…

“Stop contributing to your early demise. Hear this stuff NOW.”

When it comes to wellness, we’re usually our worst enemies.

The first article, by Dr. Mark Sircus of The International Medical Veritas Association’s (IMVA) states it clearly. Here are some excerpts…

“According to Dr. Gary L. Tunsky, there is only one disease — cellular malfunction — and all other “diseases” are just labels that tell us the location of the cellular malfunction.”

“What he should have said, to be more specific, is that there is inflammation.”

“Inflammation is the common denominator that levels the playing field of medicine.”

“Toxicity and inflammation are brothers in arms teaming up against the cells.”

“A partial list of common sub-clinical symptoms would include but not be limited to: fatigue, lethargy, depression, headaches, allergies, chronic infection, frequent colds, nervousness, sudden anger, sensitivity to perfume/odors, memory loss and joint pains.”

“What is cancer but inflammation?”

Despite the investment of hundreds of billions of dollars
in research, not even a single degenerative disease
has been cured in the past hundred years.
─Dr. Alan Greenberg

This is why modern medicine has to reorient itself to treat inflammation instead of the diagnostic labels hanging around a patient’s neck.”

“The 21st century is presenting all primary health care workers with a daunting challenge, how to help people and their children survive the toxicity, stress and inflammation and a medical and dental system dead set on making matters worse by further poisoning everyone they have contact with.”

This is one reason why I put everything else aside a couple of years ago, invested heavily in a sophisticated artificial intelligence technology designed to unwind the mysteries behind inflammation, the aging brain, weight loss, aging itself as well as other aging-related conditions.

I started with inflammation because it’s overall, the most serious of these in the immediate term. And we usually show no symptoms as it silently eats away at us for years before killing us.

I know you’ve seen this before, but I URGE you to take one more peek. Inflammation Intervention.

And if for some reason, you don’t want to take this proactive step, at least read this free report. And then adopt at some of the tips at minimum.

Please.

Here are some excerpts from the second article…

Oxidative stress and inflammation – two things that age humans the fastest
─by S. D. Wells

“When people hear the term neurodegenerative disease, they either run the other way and just pray that they never have to deal with it, or they have no idea what it means.

When millions of Americans take prescription drugs to cover up and temporarily minimize symptoms of chronic health ailments, they are actually increasing oxidative stress and inflammation, pouring ‘salt in the wound.’

“Will you have Alzheimer’s?”

“How can you destroy your cells for 30 or 40 years and take a chemical prescription to fix it? You can’t. How can you strangulate your cells and cut off oxygen to the brain for years and then quell the “symptoms” with medication? You can’t.”

“That’s the scam of Obamacare and the ‘Inflammation Nation.’ America is fed GMOs, pesticide-laden food meant to DESTROY insects and weeds that kill agricultural profits. It kills people!”

The article goes on and gets a little technical. You might want to check-out the Health Ranger’s anti-inflammatory foods with good fat sources. http://www.naturalnews.com/

P.S. And don’t forget this critical step.

Another Argument for Radical Life Extension

I keep finding supporting evidence that our predictions for radical life extension in our lifetimes could become a reality.

Here’s info from an article I found in my archives:

Five years ago, I read this Science Daily article which hits you right between the eyes if you are sensitive to life-extending implications. After you read these excerpts, tell me how you interpret the report.

Being Isaac Newton: Computer Derives Natural Laws from Raw Data

If Isaac Newton had access to a supercomputer, he’d have had it watch apples fall – and let it figure out the physical matters. But the computer would have needed to run an algorithm, just developed by Cornell researchers, which can derive natural laws from observed data.

The researchers have taught a computer to find regularities in the natural world that become established laws – yet without any prior scientific knowledge on the part of the computer. They have tested their method, or algorithm, on simple mechanical systems and believe it could be applied to more complex systems ranging from biology to cosmology.

The researchers tested the method with apparatus used in freshman physics courses: a spring-loaded linear oscillator, a single pendulum and a double pendulum. Given data on position and velocity over time, the computer found energy laws, and for the pendulum, the law of conservation of momentum. Given acceleration, it produced Newton’s second law of motion.

The researchers point out that the computer evolves these laws without any prior knowledge of physics, kinematics or geometry.

Fascinating, huh? In fact, it’s amazing. And five years of progress passed since.

If we would have seen an article like this fifteen years ago, it would have made international headlines. So why did it slip by, largely unnoticed by the press?

Because rapid progress has been sneaking up on us for a few decades now, and we take what used to be considered as scientific miracles for granted, as they are reported along with a thousand other news items.

OK, so we’re desensitized to scientific breakthroughs. We’re overloaded with information and are spending our time trying to master the newest smart phone technology before it becomes obsolete. We spend so much time trying to keep up that we usually don’t step back and analyze how some of these technologies could impact our lives.

Let’s take a moment now though to see how this Cornell research could affect you.

Grasp the implication. A 2009 computer rediscovered one of the one of the key laws of physics, first discovered by one of the most brilliant men of all time, and arguably the most important man in history. Virtually every mechanical and electronic device can trace its roots to Newton’s Laws of Motion. Just about every convenience you enjoy and every bit of technology you and the world depend on can be traced to Newton.

That includes the computer at Cornell which duplicated a big part of his work, without the benefit of Newton’s prior education.

In a nutshell, this means computers are getting smarter all the time, at an accelerating rate, and will surpass human intelligence sooner than most think. While that is happening, and after it happens, scientists will use these computers to help solve the aging and disease processes that currently kill us.

The same forces that are creating a health revolution are killing us

Fifteen years ago, when I formed Maximum Life Foundation, www.MaxLife.org, we saw very little in the news about longevity, let alone radical life extension. Now, hardly a day goes by where you don’t see some reference to longevity in the national or world news. I just Googled “aging” and got 50,600,000 results. “Longevity” yielded 11.6 million.

Then I went to Amazon’s book section. “Aging” got me an astounding 35,417 results. Virtually all of them were published in the past ten years. “Longevity” had 5,022.

We’re in the middle of a life extension revolution. Health and wellness is becoming a way of life for millions. So why are we as a nation and as a world, getting fatter, and in many cases, dying sooner? This really bothers me, because with the emerging extreme life extending technologies, the stakes in this longevity game are being raised well beyond an extra 10-20 years to possibly open-ended youthfulness.

Look, for the first time in history, we have a shot at the longevity brass ring. From the beginning of civilization, people have yearned for extended youth and an escape from the ravages of aging. You are part of the most fortunate generation ever. So count your blessings, and cherish and take advantage of your first-time-in-the-history-of-the-world opportunity. Benefit from what most people squander.

Along with these great life-extending technologies come tasty, but poisonous food choices. Technology makes food cheaper and life a lot easier as well. So easy in fact, that most people get away from regular exercise. On one hand, science gives you a life-saving opportunity while tempting you to not take advantage of it with the other. High-tech living can also be unpredictable and stressful.

My good friend Rose Cole, along with Deepak Chopra, Andrew Weil and other notables, published a longevity book called Audacious Aging.

Rose is a top natural health advocate and speaker. In this anthology, She shares her story of moving from a sugar addicted, psoriasis suffering fashion model to the sought after health professional she’s become by choosing food that promotes “thriving instead of surviving.”

In the book, Rose explains the connection between our physical bodies and the food with which we fuel it: Says Rose, “98% of the atoms that comprise your body now will be replaced in six months; those cells are made primarily from food. If you’ve messed up your health over the years, you can have a new body in ninety days. All food has a vibrational core. Food that makes your body function well has a higher vibration, whereas food that drags your body down has a lower vibration.”

Learn more about Rose at www.WellnessWithRose.com. She has transformed the lives of clients all over the world by balancing their body chemicals to self-heal with astounding results. Her methodology addresses the root causes of why the body creates excess weight, depression, disease or just a lack luster performance.

My book, Smart, Strong and Sexy at 100? is more wide-reaching, and I suggest it as a “must read” if maximizing your wellness and healthy longevity are your goal.

Your life, your choice. Get Rose’s book and her programs, get my book HERE, read other health books, join a gym, eat sensibly, see an anti-aging physician, manage your stress, and read Life Extension Express for free at www.MaxLife.org.

Stem Cells and You

What are stem cells, and what can they do for you? Let me answer the second question first.

If you are injured, sick or aging, stem cells will most likely have a giant positive impact on your life. They hold the promise to cure you from what ails you, to make you more attractive, resilient, independent and disease resistant.

They will make you more youthful too, and let you live longer. They will ease your pain and reverse damage from injuries. They may even let you grow amputated limbs and replacement teeth and organs. Deaf or hard of hearing? That may not be a problem one day soon. They could restore your vision and even let you digest your food like you did when you were young. You could end up with teenage skin and hair. You name it, and stem cells will probably fix it.

On top of all the stem cell news over the years, lifting restrictions on embryonic stem cell research seems to be a major breakthrough. Well maybe, and maybe not.

It enables thousands of scientists to study hundreds of lines of cells that were developed but not available for research due to past restrictions. It’s positive from the standpoint of taking most of the uncertainty out of the future of stem cell research. Investors and institutions are more likely to fund stem cell research along with government grants, and more young scientists are likely to enter the field. So it is a breakthrough for stem cell research in general. But embryonic stem cells?

Although we have much to learn by studying them, therapeutic value may lie mostly in adult stem cells. I think that is the future of what I predict will be the biggest industry in the history of medicine.

As a primer… several days after conception, we’re made up of stem cells to a large degree, and they remain part of us all our lives. They are your body’s master cells with the ability to grow into any one of your more than 220 cell types: muscle, skin, blood, eye, kidney, etc. Stem cells divide and renew themselves in addition to becoming highly specialized when they replace cells that die or are lost.

Embryonic stem cells are derived from the inner cell mass of an early stage embryo known as a blastocyst. Human embryos reach the blastocyst stage 4–5 days after fertilization, at which time they consist of 50–150 cells.

Embryonic Stem (ES) cells are pluripotent. This means they can differentiate into all specialized cells. Pluripotency distinguishes ES cells from multipotent progenitor cells found in the adult; these only form a limited number of cell types. But discoveries have made it possible to make adult stem cells pluripotent as well.

Because of their plasticity and potentially unlimited capacity for self-renewal, ES cell therapies have been proposed for regenerative medicine and tissue replacement after injury or disease. But so far, no approved medical treatments in the U.S. have been derived from embryonic stem cell research.

Adult stem cells such as bone marrow, adipose and cord blood stem cells have so far been the only stem cells used to successfully treat any diseases. Conditions treated by these non-embryonic stem cells include a number of diseases, including heart disease, cancers, spinal cord injuries and more. Besides some ethical concerns of stem cell therapy, there is a typical technical problem… rejection. However, these problems may be solved using autologous (your own) stem cells or via therapeutic cloning.

Adult stem cells are found throughout the body after embryonic development that divide and multiply to replenish dying cells and regenerate damaged tissues.

Scientific interest in adult stem cells has centered on their ability to divide or self-renew indefinitely, and generate all the cell types of the organ from which they originate, potentially regenerating the entire organ from a few cells. Adult stem cell treatment is rarely controversial, since they are derived from adult tissue samples rather than destroyed human embryos. And if you get treated with your own stem cells, you avoid the risk of rejection.

In the very near future, you will be using stem cells to enhance your health and beauty in ways you can’t even imagine. For some conditions, successful treatments are taking place worldwide.

Your Favorite Photo Will Turn on You

How often do you go through your old photo albums? If you’re like me, they bring back happy memories. But as recent years passed, I started having mixed emotions.

Where they used to trigger 100% positive reactions, now I get a little nostalgic. I find myself yearning for some of the times past, and even more, yearning for the old physicality.

I never thought much about this recent phenomenon until last Saturday’s elevator ride. That’s when I met Margaret (not her real name). She’s 93

She’s amazingly alert, cheerful and independent. The kind of aged person people admire. The kind of person though, who gives false impressions of how great healthy aging is. Even to me to an extent. And the ones who aren’t doing so well are mostly out of sight… shut in at home or fading in nursing homes.

I actually saw Margaret several times prior. But I never had a conversation with her before.

We got off at the same floor and were less than three minutes into our conversation before she told me, in no uncertain terms, how much aging sucks.

Right out of the blue, she said: “When I look at photographs of myself when I was young, I want to cry.” She followed that up with: “What happened?”

Then she made a reference to being 23… that she wouldn’t want to go back, but enthusiastically agreed how wonderful it would be to have a 23 year-old body now.

That was no revelation. But what was sobering, was the realization of how tortured Margaret must be in her quiet private moments. Here’s a person who seems to the rest of the world to be aging so well, when in fact, she doesn’t accept it well at all.

I don’t know how many elderly folks absolutely resent aging compared with those who age gracefully. But I’ll bet if we had access to the deep recesses of their minds, we’d be sobered by what anti-aging fantasies the majority conjure up.

I’ll bet there’s a tipping point in most of their lives where their attitudes toward aging do a 180° turn.

Maybe it’s the death of someone close to them, a personal health crisis, or maybe something as innocuous as their first serious grey hair issue, wrinkles that don’t add character anymore… or when they first notice they can’t follow conversations in noisy restaurants.

If the rest of the world had the insight I got on Saturday, if they really understood the sadness, and often the resentment that lurks under the cheery exteriors of the stereotypical happy elderly, if they thought this was where they were headed, don’t you think there’d be a worldwide outcry for a Manhattan Project approach to fixing aging once and for all?

Margaret understands we can’t go back. She doesn’t want to. She would love to charge forward with her 70 years-ago body, 23 year-old body. She most likely doesn’t realize that’s humanity’s destiny.

Fortunately for some of us, we’ll solve the aging problem in time. But without a concerted focused effort, how many millions more will anguish like Margaret and miss the age-reversal opportunity.

I don’t mean to paint a dreary picture. And I’m not suggesting aging people aren’t happy. You can be old, sick (or even dying in some cases) and still have family, beliefs and many other factors bringing joy to your life. It’s just that I’m sick of the lackadaisical and insensitive attitude the world takes toward aging. Their perceptions are often distorted when they’re on the outside looking in.

It needs a wake-up call to shake people out of fantasy land. Most have their heads in the sand, and like lemmings, follow those before us to oblivion. The harsh reality is, if you’re an adult and if history’s a guide, you’ll never look and feel any better than you do now. Without intervention… it’s all downhill from here.

Sure, we can hold off Father Time to a degree. But anything more requires serious research.

Don’t you think it’s time we get more vocal about this crisis… and realistic about how older people really fare today?

Aging ain’t pretty. Time to figure out how to age without aging! Here at MaxLife, we’re doing that now.

World’s First 150 Year Old Person

Did you know bamboo is the fastest growing plant? Some species grow four feet in one day! Bamboo reaches full height in one growth spurt of about two months.

But don’t plant it today and expect a crop tomorrow. It grows very little for the first 4 years. But then, suddenly in the 5th year, plants grow 80-90 feet tall. It takes bamboo about three full years, in the ground, before the mother plants really take off. Most of the bamboo grove slowly builds up steam underground, where you don’t notice it.

That’s how life is in general, and I’ll show you how understanding this could be critical to your continued health.

“Overnight successes” usually burst on the scene after years and years of painstaking training, practice and education in anonymity. And it’s the same with research. MaxLife Solution is finally launching some amazing anti-aging nutraceuticals. It’s been over four years since the company was founded. And ten years of research preceded that. When the public will be saying “Oh wow!” management will be saying “At last!”

Here’s an even more dramatic example of an overnight success:

In 1980, Dr. Michael Rose began his quest for radical intervention in the aging process. Dr. Rose is an evolutionary biologist, and he has been able to increase the lifespans of his lab animals by over 400%. Here it is, 34 years later, when he is finally able to turn his research into products that could enhance and extend your life.

LIVE TO 150

“I expect to see this happen” says Dr. Gregory Benford, “because I’ll be living longer. Maybe even to 150, about 30 more years than any human is known to have lived.” (BTW, he is 73 years old now.)

“I expect this because I’ve worked on it, seen the consequences of genomics when applied to the complex problem of our aging. Genomics now reveals how complex the pathology of aging really is. We can’t solve the aging problem using the standard research methods of cell biology, despite the great success such methods had with some other medical problems.”

He goes on to say how aging comes from multiple genetic deficiencies, not a single biochemical problem.

But now we have genomics to reveal all the genes in an organism. More, we can monitor how each and every one of them expresses in your body. He says the aging riddle is inherently genomic in scale. There is no biochemical or cellular necessity to aging—it arises from side effects of evolution, through natural selection. But this also means we can attack it by using directed evolution.

Dr. Rose has produced “Methuselah flies” that live over four times longer than control flies in the lab. He did this by not allowing their eggs to hatch, until half are dead, for hundreds of generations. Methuselah flies are more robust, not less, and so resist stress. Methuselah flies genomics shows us densely overlapping pathways. Directed evolution uses these to enhance longevity. Since flies have about 73% of their genes in common with us and over 90% of their aging-related genes. This tells us much about our own pathways.

By finding substances that can enhance the action of those pathways, we have a 21st Century approach to aging. Such research is rapidly ongoing. The field is moving fast.

There seems no fundamental reason why we cannot live to 150 years or longer. After all, nature has done quite well on her own. We know of a 4,800-year-old bristlecone pine, a 400 year old clam—plus whales, a tortoise and koi fish over 200 years old—all without technology. These organisms use pathways we share, and can now understand. As I have pointed out in the past, if you can live to 150… or a lot less long, researchers say the restrictions on open-ended lifespans will be off.

Overnight success technologies are perfect illustrations of why it’s so critical for you to preserve and extend your health now. As more and more of these breakthroughs explode on the scene after years of brain sweating research, the greater your chances are for using them to launch you to a limitless future. Big breakthroughs could be right around the corner, so increase your odds to see them.

The newest is INFLAGENE.

The first person to live to 150 may be reading this right now, or it might have been written by that person.

Do You Need a Purpose to Want Extreme Longevity?

I attended a stimulating seminar, and it was not a health or longevity seminar. Attendees were entrepreneurs, authors and speakers, all wishing to move their projects and careers forward. Speakers were dynamic, successful and at the tops of their professions.

Normally, I would attend events like this and not mention them in my newsletter. But not this time.

That’s because I noticed a common thread that weaves through every single one. That thread is participants’ high level of interest in health and longevity. In fact, I get so much of this feedback that I often forget that not everyone shares that interest. In reality, a much higher percentage of these people want to live longer than I ever found in the general public. So why the difference?

In a word, it’s “purpose.”

Virtually every one of the speakers and attendees share a passion for life. Their lives have purpose. Some plan on changing the world in big ways. Others have their own more modest passionate projects, goals and plans for the future.

When your life has purpose, you have something to live for, something to look forward to. You plan, you study, you execute—you seldom get bored. You’re a player, not a spectator. You have a stake in the game of life, and you want it to continue. No matter how bad things seem at times, you anticipate positive outcomes. That’s because you have a plan.

So as long as your health is good, you don’t want life to end, ever.

And oh yes, the people at these events are generally much healthier and fit than the average American (Most foreigners are too, but that’s another story). Because they treasure their lives, they take better care of themselves.

What is your purpose? Your passion? It’s easy to slip in and out of purposeful modes. That’s why it’s productive and healthy to monitor who you are and where you are going. If you fall off the horse once in a while, get back on, or climb on another horse. You’ll be happier and will live longer.

I hardly ever hear objections to extreme anti-aging at these events. I hear them often in casual conversations with people I run into in every day environments. I believe that’s because the average person does not have purpose in his or her life. And that’s why greatly extended lifespans offer little or any value to so many people. And that’s why I quit trying to convince them otherwise. I’d rather talk with you and people like you who are receptive to the life-giving information you get in this letter.

The Origin of… and Cure for… Stress

Did you ever play Whac-A-Mole?

You know, that’s the game where “moles” keep popping up through holes in a board, and the purpose is to whack them on the head with a mallet as fast as you can. The only problem is, no sooner do you whack one, that another pops up from another hole. Talk about stress! You can work yourself into a frenzy trying to keep up.

This really ages me, but Whac-A-Mole reminds me of a famous skit from the I Love Lucy show. It was televised over 50 years ago. Lucy (Lucille Ball) was working on an assembly line in a candy factory. She was standing behind a conveyor belt, and her job was to package the individual pieces of chocolate as they were delivered to her station.

The only problem was, no matter how fast she put them in boxes, they would come a little faster. Pretty soon, she started popping some in her mouth to keep up the pace. But they came faster still, faster than she could package them and eat them. So her cheeks started filling up until she looked like an overly ambitious chipmunk. It was hilarious to me as a child. But it’s even funnier now that I can appreciate the skit’s reflection of real life.

Do you ever feel overwhelmed, kind of like Lucy?

Maybe your job or business throws you problems faster than you can solve them. Or by the time you answer three emails, five more pop into your inbox. Or do you manage to lose ten pounds, only to gain back eleven? No sooner do you pay your bills then you have another stack. You clean your house, your car, your clothes, yourself, and they get dirty all over again. Sometimes it’s hard to keep up, isn’t it?

And the very technologies that are designed to make life easier often make it more frantic.

All this leads to chronic stress, and chronic stress shortens your life.

Since my purpose is to extend your life, I’d like to identify a common thread that runs through Whac-A-Mole, the Lucy episode and all the overwhelming items I mentioned that lead to stress. In one word, it’s “reaction.”

If you want to bring sanity to your life, one of the most anti-aging habits you can adopt is pro-action. Quit reacting to everything around you, and take control, one day at a time.

Outsource or delegate all the endless repetitive tasks to someone better equipped to handle them. Identify what activities give you the most satisfaction, and spend your time on those. You’ll not only boost your health and longevity, but you’ll marvel at how quickly you recharge and how rapidly you prosper as well.

Newest Epigenetic Research Proves You Can Control Much of Your Gene Expression Naturally

How old are you?

Uh, uh. Not so fast.

I’m not interested in the number of candles on your birthday cake and neither should you be.

Nowadays, as people like to say, “It’s not the years in your life, but the LIFE in your years” that matter and often the calendar is a bad indicator of that.

In fact, there might be a giant difference between your chronological age and your biological age, both for the good or the bad!

Here’s why.

Your chronological age measures the time you’ve been on this planet. Your biological age measures how you perform, look and feel. It gauges how long you might live. (Frankly, it may very well measure how long you WANT to live given factors like energy, cognitive condition and even sexual desire and function.) Recent studies have shown that the rate at which you age is only determined 25-35% by genetics. You control the rest. It’s called “epigenetics.”

Our 300 tissue types differ because their cells have certain sets of genes that are “turned on” or expressed, as well as other sets that are “turned off” or inhibited.

Epigenetics means the study of changes in organisms caused by modification of gene expression rather than alteration of the genetic code itself. Or, simply put, the way your genes operate depends on much more than your DNA sequence. Epigenetic changes can switch your genes on or off. You and your environment have more influence by what is termed “epigenetic factors.” Changes in these factors can play a critical role in disease, how you feel and in your future.

In other words, you control much of your destiny. You can actually reprogram much of your body to resist diseases such as cancer… and even aging. What you eat, drink, breathe and think and how much you exercise has more bearing on your health than your DNA.

Your environment’s effects on your genes is so powerful that the ways they influence your can permanently alter the way your genes are expressed, and some of these effects can be passed on to your offspring.

So the effects of your habits on your health, good and bad, can be inherited by your children and by your children’s children.

Let’s say your nutritional habits affected your predicted death rate associated with cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes. For example, if you practiced some form of caloric restriction just before puberty, your children would have a lesser chance of dying from cardiovascular disease.

The flip side is positive lifestyle habits also translate to modified gene expression. So you can pass on those epigenetic changes too. What are these changes, and how are they remembered? The answers to questions such as these lie in the concept of epigenetics that are beyond the scope of this article.

But since your DNA sequence, as well as many of your epigenetic changes are passed on, you are in a sense 100% controlled by your genes. You are dealt a hand at birth. It really is the luck of the draw.

But we now know how that we are empowered at birth regardless of the hand we were dealt. It’s at that point where 65-75% of your gene expression will be controlled by your environment, including the food you eat, the amount of and the type of exercise you get… and even your thoughts.

So you can REVERSE most of your unwanted gene expressions that contribute to disease. Or you can unwind much of the advantages that you were born with.

You are the captain of your own ship. This even includes how well and how rapidly you age.

Recent discoveries now let us objectively measure biological age. It may not yet be precise. But it does give you a good indication of how effective your anti-aging program works for you. Or, it illustrates how your habits may be accelerating your aging process.

I enjoyed lunch with a young looking 61 year old friend. We compared notes on how we maintain our health. We found that our protocols and longevity goals were similar. He measured his biological age and found out he was about 45 years old! I did the same and got similar results. I turned 71 this year. Yet my blood pressure is better than it when I was a fit 35-year-old. My cholesterol levels are almost as good. And my body fat is about the same.

I attribute this to my improved diet, supplements and regular exercise. My skin elasticity, respiratory function and reaction time compare to someone around 50. And my immune profile, neurological scores and blood tests are equal to those of a 50-year-old man’s. Finally, an online test measured me at about 55.

I don’t say this to brag – but to show you how you can turn back your aging clock by applying your basic epigenetic knowledge. You can find the information in my book, Smart, Strong and Sexy at 100?

If my friend and I can do it, you can do it. We have essentially turned back our biological clocks by an astounding 15-20 years. That could mean we have bought ourselves the opportunity to take advantage of over 15 more years of medical advances, thanks to epigenetics

I have another friend who did the same thing I did. Better, in fact. His chronological age is 65. And he was dealt a bad set of genes which prematurely aged him. He was at risk of an early death. But he followed a well-balanced program. It included supplements, diet, exercise, stress reduction, a sensible lifestyle and regular visits to his Anti-Aging physician.

He dropped his current biological age to about 45. When he started, his biological age was probably at least 5 years higher than his chronological age. Now it’s 20 years less. So he netted around 25 years, Five years more than my other friend and I. These results are no coincidence.

One of my secrets is carefully chosen nutritional supplements. A favorite of mine of the new breed that affect gene expression is InflaGene. And given the impact of inflammation on aging, disease and death, it may be the most important for you. It’s the only supplement derived solely from a network of genes that contribute to inflammation. Chronic inflammation is the direct link to nearly every major disease and to accelerated aging. www.maxlifesolution.net

Once you see how you measure up on a biological age test, you can reverse your biological dramatically by following the 7 easy steps in Smart, Strong and Sexy at 100? Let’s say you’re 50, and your test results measure you at 52. Not good. You’ve essentially shortened your projected life span by two years. However, now that you understand the power of epigenetics, let’s say you start your protocol now and retest in a year. The calendar will say you are 51. But your tests might measure you at 45. That means while you lived one more year, you’re biologically seven years younger. So you bought yourself an extra eight years.

You can take quick simple home biological age tests. I devote two pages to them in the Introduction of Smart, Strong and Sexy at 100? CLICK HERE for book info.

Soon, when someone asks your age, why not tell them your biological age instead of chronological? Tell them “I was born in ____, but I’m actually about __ years old.”

Then, just to let them know how smart how smart you are too, ask them if they can spell ”epigenetics.”

Could a Tiny Enemy Be Claiming Your Life?

Who’s in charge?

We work overtime to make extreme life extension a reality for you. But we fight an ongoing battle with a deadly enemy only you have control over.

That enemy is your personal lifestyle.

It’s probably going to be touch and go whether or not we can reverse aging in your lifetime. And how long you keep yourself alive can be the difference between oblivion and open-ended youth. We’re doing all we can to push you over the finish line. Are you doing the same for yourself?

Remember, you are the one with most of the power over your destiny. It’s not your genes. It’s not your environment. It’s you!

By now, you understand your lifestyle can be the difference of up to twenty extra – or twenty less years. You should also know what you can do to add (or subtract) those years, especially if you have read Smart, Strong and Sexy at 100?

So what are you doing about it? Are you focusing on the benefits you will receive? Or are you giving in to deadly short-term habitual temptations?

Stop right now, and do this exercise. Consider the things that are keeping you from being as healthy as you can be. What are those things you could change if you had a magic wand? You might want to stop and list them on a piece of paper.

Then go back in time to the first time you noticed those destructive habits creeping into your life. Step into your body at that time and feel the pain they have caused you. Now gradually bring yourself back to the present and review the pain, regret and even sickness they have caused you at each phase of your life.

Consider how they have affected your health, appearance, self-esteem relationships and career. Now fast forward to the future and observe how they will continue to eat away at your happiness, shorten your life and cause you to miss out on endless youth.

Feel the pain and loss these habits will cause if you don’t change them. Consider the lost hope and the unfulfilled dreams.

Now come back and realize that you are the one with the ability to seize control of your life, your health, your long future and your happiness.

So who’s in charge? If not you, then consider the words of Ayn Rand.

“…if you choose to perish, do so with full knowledge of how cheaply how small an enemy has claimed your life.”
