Scientists have, for years now, been experimenting with how to treat the human condition at its most basic levels. That is, by altering the building blocks themselves, which make up our biology. While we are, at the moment, taking baby steps into this brave new world, it would seem inevitable that at some point in our future, near or far as that may be, science will tame our genetic code. Instead of going to the beauty parlor, will we simply be able to turn on a gene for blonde hair? Will we be able to live out extended lives in a disease free body, designed to our own exacting standards?
Who wants to live forever? Would you? It should come as no surprise that quite a few of us dream about the possibility. And not just living forever, aging but hanging on. No. We dream about leading a healthy, full life, not confined to our beds, but out experiencing all the world has to offer. There are some people out there who believe that this is an achievable goal, and some who are working to achieve it. It should come as no surprise that the very wealthy would look forward to a long life.
Nobody really looks forward to their last day on earth, but no one seems able to do anything to prevent this steady approach. Everyone must, eventually, face the inevitable. But what if we could put it off as long as
In 2013, a study by David Sinclair of Harvard and his colleagues reported that the mitochondria in lab mice was restored to youthful productive levels when treated with NMN (nicotinamide mononucleotide), a substance which boost levels of NAD in the body. Such a study speaks well to the success of increasing NAD in our own bodies, and the benefits to be gained from doing this. Increased levels of NAD can rejuvenate our mitochondria to the point where it acts like its more youthful self, allowing us, in turn, to rebound to our own youthful vigor while decreasing the threat of so many all too common degenerative ailments.
Once you have been diagnosed with a low testosterone condition, what can you do about it? To many, the obvious choice would seem to be testosterone replacement therapy, or TRT. This type of treatment is administered by a physician, and may take many forms. You could use patches, which can irritate the skin, or creams, which must be carefully protected from touch by others. It could also entail a patch on your gum, which could be irritating, implants under the skin of your buttocks, or periodic injections.
Personal preference has dictated nutritional choices throughout contemporary history. Ever since people gained access to enough food to move beyond subsistence nutrition, they have based their dietary decisions mainly on taste and general health trends. Yet a growing body of evidence shows there is no one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition. Our responses to different nutrients are unique, and by recognizing and monitoring this we can potentially extend our healthy life expectancy.
As long ago as the 1920’s, a ketogenic diet was noted for being beneficial to those suffering from epilepsy, allowing them to thrive on a decreased amount of medication. And. of course, everybody recognizes the importance of burning fat when it comes to an efficient weight loss program.
Allergy is basically the clinical expression of atopy, which is the predisposition for production of IgE (a substance produced by the immune system when it reacts to an allergy). The immune response of the human body is totally dependent on the two subdivisions of T-lymphocytes (a subtype of white blood cells, important for the immune system) that are known as T helper cells TH1 and TH2.
Low-level laser light therapy, also called LLLT, is a type of medical technology that uses low-level light-emitting diodes or LEDs to treat the skin or body parts affected by diseases such as cancer, arthritis, eczema, and psoriasis. While most high-powered laser treatments are used in conventional laser medicine for cosmetic or reconstructive surgery, it has been claimed that the application of low power lasers assists in the repair or elimination of tissue or stimulates or enhances cell activity. While the mechanism of action of low-intensity light-emitting diode lasers on the human body is unknown, it has been observed that the light emitted from such lasers is absorbed by the body’s tissues is used to repair the cellular level damage caused due to disease.
In the last decade or so, many doctors, researchers, and scientists have been studying the impact of binaural beats on the human brain. It has shown that these beats produce a form of “neuro-linguistic programming,” in which the brain is able to learn new things by associating with a specific frequency. In other words, it can be said that these beats stimulate the brain, allowing it to think about new things, and to learn new concepts while remaining unaltered by outside stimuli. While this is the most recent research on the topic, it is by no means the only one.
