            What if you could live forever?  What if your cells could repair themselves instead of dying or no longer dividing?  What if you could overcome age-related illnesses, such as diabetes or heart disease?

Throughout history, humans have been looking for an elixir to prolong life and escape death.  Now a new breakthrough in cell biology has brought scientists closer than ever to finding a cure for age-related diseases and prolonging cell life, according to a February 15, 2010 article “Scientists Discover the Secrets of Aging” by Clive Cookson in the Financial Times.[i] Although the scientists caution that they have not yet found an elixir for eternal life and may not in the foreseeable future, their discovery promises a much longer life, which brings us closer than ever to that eternal elixir.  So even if you can’t find another body to maintain the youthful you, you might be able to revitalize your own body, as their breakthrough suggests.

Exactly what is this breakthrough?  Simply this.  An international team of scientists based atNewcastleUniversityinEnglandand includingUniversityofUlmscientists inGermanyinvestigated why cells age, leading them to slow or shut down.  The cells no longer divide, and whatever tissues they create don’t function very well – so your skin might wrinkle or your heart might have trouble pumping.  The scientists used a combination of approaches, including computer modeling, cell culture experiments, and genetically modified mice, to see what happens when cells age.

Though their findings published in the Journal of Molecular Systems Biology are complicated, basically what they discovered is that as we age, the “wear and tear” of everyday life damages the DNA in each cell.  When the aging cell detects this damage, it sends out an internal chemical signal as a sign of distress.  Then, this signal leads the mitochondria, the tiny membrane-enclosed organelles which supply cellular energy, to make oxidizing free radical molecules.  These molecules then send the cell a signal to destroy itself or stop dividing, so the damaged DNA won’t result in cells that cause cancer.

This approach is quite different than the one that many scientists have pursued where they have focused on the ends of the human chromosomes, called “telomeres,” which become gradually shorter as humans age.   Instead, these scientists have looked at how to keep the cells from aging, and how to prevent these revitalized cells from turning into cancer.  Among other things, this breakthrough discovery on DNA aging enables scientists to come up with better drugs for any diseases associated with age, through rejuvenating these cells.

That’s a breakthrough with the potential to completely change our society. Here’s how.  Within a few years, at the rate science is progressing, we should have new drugs that will fight these end of life diseases, leading people to live still longer.  Then, what if scientists can repair the DNA in aging cells?  Or what if they can prevent the mitochondria from making the free radical molecules, or if they can stop these free radicals from telling the cells to self-destruct or stop dividing without producing cancer?  In short, now that scientists know the path that aging cells take, they can intervene at various points along the path to slow down or stop the effects of aging.

As they do, consider the possibilities.   As people get older, they may no longer need the many beauty products or surgeries designed to cover up the signs of aging, such as wrinkled skin, since these signs of aging will disappear. Dating will undergo a major revolution, too, since older people will no longer look their age and will have the energy they used to have to participate in all kinds of fast and strenuous activities, from hiking and mountain climbing to bungee jumping, that are usually the province of the young.

Then, too, people won’t need to slow down or end their careers as they approach the usual retirement age in their 60s and older.  Instead, older adults will have the energy to keep going and going and going – like the Energizer Bunny.  And that’ll mean less of a problem for Social Security and Medicare, because more older people will be working and fewer will retire or have medical problems.  Young adults will be relieved, too, that they no longer have to care for aging and infirm parents; in fact, nursing home and hospital populations should experience a big decline.

But there is one big problem for the younger generation, because they may find their path blocked by all the fit and healthy older people who are not leaving their jobs.  And many health care and medical workers may be out of work, because there will be less need for their services.

But to look on the bright side, maybe everyone put out of work by the new Age Revolution (not the “New Age” Revolution!) might be able to find new niches that lead to new jobs, such as social clubs and cruises for seniors.  The development of new niches is exactly what happens with every new technological breakthrough that closes down outmoded ways of and opens up new opportunities.

So I say, bring it on.  As a member of this older Baby Boomer generation, this discovery about aging is certainly a breakthrough I can embrace.

Healthy Eating & Good Taste!

Would you think that having Almond Flour Waffles for breakfast, French Onion Soup for lunch, Tomato Bruschetta for a snack, Ragu Bolognese for dinner and cap it off with some French Vanilla Ice Cream would be healthy?

Apparently so, according to Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), which restricts the use of complex carbohydrates and eliminates refined sugar, grains, and starch.  People with incurable digestive problems don’t have to compromise on taste with some delicious recipes.

Cooking for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, color book has over 100 recipes geared to those sensitive to particular foods.

“Our society is now closely scrutinizing where our food comes from and what’s in it,” says author Erica Kerwien. “There is a proliferation of diets that exclude processed foods, grains, dairy, and/or sugar. No two people are genetically the same, so it makes perfect sense that each person should eat food that works best for his or her body.”

Seniors Need To Keep Moving, Maybe Take Calcium Supplements And Just In Case, Protect Their Hips

Life is sometimes mind over matter.  When Americans reach that 65 and older period in their lifespan, falling down becomes more of a reality than just a thought and begins to really matter.

A healthy aging program has been designed by Karen Peterson, a Brain Gym® instructor, educational kinesiologist, natural vision improvement instructor, Touch for Health instructor and a massage therapist for 25 years, teaches these modalities to all ages and occupations with suggested moves such as; The cross-crawl, Forward toe-touch dancer, Sensory integration – the arrow chart, Side-step walk and believe it or not, The cat jump.

“The projected cost in health-care expenses for 2020 due to fall-related injuries in the United States is $55 billion,” says Karen Peterson, author of “Move With Balance: Healthy Aging Activities for Brain and Body,” (

“It’s important for seniors to keep moving and learning.  That’s what helps improve balance and coordination” says Peterson.  “But if you’re rather frail, or just very fearful of falling, you’re less likely to get up and move around.” These activities benefit all seniors, from 55 to 105.

If you’re a little unsteady on your feet, but you still want to move and groove and be active as possible, that’s great and commendable, but be smart and wear protection.  And the most effective way to protect the most vulnerable parts of your body–your hips– is to pad them unobtrusively and securely with ComfiHips® (


The last thing you want to do is break a hip, because that will put you on the sidelines and out of commission, maybe forever.  For many a senior, a hip fracture can take you right out of the game, perhaps spell the end of exercise and might even trigger a steep decline in your health putting you on a downhill track you don’t want to be on.

So be smart and think about wearing protection.  No one will even know you’re wearing ComfiHips® as they won’t show under your exercise outfit.

And if you happen to stumble you can get right up saying: “I’ve fallen . . . but I CAN get up”  And get back in the game!

Now if you are a postmenopausal woman who typically consumes only one or two servings a day of dairy, you may be hard put to get 1,200 milligrams of calcium you need from the rest of your diet unless you take a supplement. Dr. Ethel Siris, director of the osteoporosis clinic at Columbia University Medical Center in New York, said such women could benefit from a supplement of calcium carbonate (600 milligrams a day) or calcium citrate (500 milligrams a day).

Be sure to read the product label carefully — a usual “serving” is two tablets. Calcium carbonate should be taken with meals to assure absorption, but calcium citrate can be taken at any time and may cause fewer digestive problems.

Most calcium supplements now also contain vitamin D (usually as cholecalciferol, or D3), supplying about 250 to 300 international units in two tablets. The Institute of Medicine recommends 600 units a day for everyone from age 1 to 70 and 800 units for men and women 71 and older, with a safe upper limit for everyone over the age of 9 of 4,000 units.

Calcium with Vitamin D is a good idea because Vitamin D has one advantage over calcium alone: It is fat-soluble and can be stored in the body for later use.

Natural and Organic Bone and Joint Supplement, My Perfect Bones

It’s a major issue affecting thousands of people each year – joint pain, and bone loss.

Gigi Stetler knew all about it after she was in a horse accident and broke her knee, only to suffer from a shattered ankle two years later. In an effort to help not only herself, but many others Gigi Stetler created My Perfect Bones an all natural and organic supplement, along with My Perfect Joints which cures joint pain and is also proven to feed and nourish the cartilage in joints. Had Gigi not taken My Perfect Bones, she would have had surgery to pin and screw her ankle in the correct placement.

But the story didn’t begin with Gigi. The start of all this natural supplement line was the outcome of many years of love, expertise, and the determination to continue a meaningful existence. Nutritional Biochemist Jay D. Foster, a Licensed Nutrition Counselor and Certified Clinical Nutritionist blended all the natural supplements to restore Gigi’s Grandmother’s hip. After attentively following Foster’s daily regime for a year, Granny’s bone density test came back normal. Today her bone density is now at a level normally expected in a healthy young woman.

New Natural Supplement Helps Promote Healthy Sugar Metabolism!

New Natural Supplement Helps Promote Healthy Sugar Metabolism!
written by Kirsten Filkill

NuControl is intended for individuals who are concerned about maintaining healthy sensitivity to insulin and blood sugar levels. NuControl’s patent-pending combination of L-leucine, resveratrol and vitamins D and K aim the biological pathways in the body to increase the ability to process glucose. According to research conducted by NuSirt Sciences, the Nashville, Tenn.,-based biotech company that manufactures the supplement NuControl has no known adverse side-effects.

The formulation of NuControl is based on scientific studies by Michael B. Zemel, Ph.d., NuSirt Founder and former Director of the Nutrition Institute at the University of Tennessee. His groundbreaking research centered on the important role of dairy products in both the ability to uphold a healthy average weight and the management of overweight and obesity.

“For more than 30 years, I’ve been researching all-natural solutions for healthy living,” Zemel said. “NuControl is a breakthrough scientific approach to promoting healthy sugar metabolism and natural weight loss.”

In animal studies, NuSirt Sciences showed that resveratrol, in combination with leucine, resulted in dramatic improvement in insulin sensitivity and the ability to maintain healthy blood sugar levels. “The research breaks new ground in the understanding of metabolic health by showing that specific, novel combinations of all natural compounds–at dosing levels smaller than what was previously believed to be beneficial–have the potential to improve an individual’s metabolic health,” Zemel said.

NuSirt’s approach is to design products targeting health risks such as obesity, diabetes, and inflammation. The business focuses on the mechanisms at work and outcomes, not simply the ingredients. “While other nutraceutical companies seem obsessed over differentiating their berry or oil versus another, we are focused on the science and the clinically-proven benefit to the consumer,” CEO Doug Grindstaff said.

NuControl is available for sale online at NuSirt Sciences is in negotiations with retailers and distributors to offer the product on retail shelves throughout the United States.
