The Aging Human  

Aging, the final frontier; longevity our life’s continuing mission: to explore strange alternatives from old civilizations (while avoiding disease), to boldly press forward where no one has gone before. You would swear as though Captain Kirk was readying the starship Enterprise when it comes to the aging process.

We all know aging is a normal process, but then again premature aging is not. In a way we have all been given a commuted life sentence, and with good behavior and some clever insight additional time may be added to your sentence. Aging is the one thing we all have in common

Aging research has had an unprecedented advancement in recent years, particularly with the discovery of how it’s controlled. The discovery of the second brain; the gut microbiota and its connection to the body’s immune defense and mood balance. The importance of the endocrine glands and hormonal balance while at the same time preventing the dysfunction of the mitochondria and stem cell exhaustion, all hallmarks of aging.

Modern science is an expert for what it knows rather than what it doesn’t. For the scientific advancement towards longevity, one may first need to examine inwardly our intricate design rather than introducing foreign matter within our beings. Advancement through the lowest levels of magnification may open new discoveries. Think of the body as a fine Swiss watch, the time is displayed and the hands turn and everything on the surface appears normal, the question, is the timing accurate? A craftsman will first examine every movement, and after full inspection make hair like adjustments until the timing is perfect. We have forgotten this approach with allopathic prescription drug medicine.

The aging process is both mysterious and multi-faceted. Today we live longer than in the past; and on the flip-side the added years are many times associated with increased disease. If we think of a mobile, and to the younger generation not the cell phone, all parts move when one part is touched, and the same could be said about the way our endocrine system is balanced.

Many scientists believe aging is an intimately linked process-perhaps even caused by the gradual failure of the body’s immunological defense, as environmental toxins accumulate causing subversion within.

In reality we age as organs decline. Take for instance the release of growth hormone, secreted during our youth keeping everything healthy and renewed. Human growth hormone is responsible for the repair and regeneration of human tissue throughout our lives, but by age thirty HGH levels are only at twenty percent of their peak levels during childhood and they continue to decline at about 12 to 15 percent per decade, and often much more depending on the circumstances. If HGH could be maintained to the levels released at twenty-five we would continue to experience the effects of aging but those effects would be greatly reduced since the body would not age prematurely. By increasing the levels of HGH in our bodies, we can slow, or even reverse, many of the manifestations of aging.

Another factor of premature aging is the decline of thymic hormones. The thymus produces T-lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell responsible for “cell-mediated immunity.” This term refers to immune mechanisms not controlled or mediated by antibodies. Cell-mediated immunity is extremely important in resisting infection by mold-like bacteria: yeast, fungi, parasites, viruses, toxins and allergens. The function of the thymus gland is to program white blood cells, the body’s immune army, in their various tasks and then send them into the blood to recognize and destroy pathogens. T-cells come in 2 types: killer T-cells and helper T-cells. Killer T-cells detect germs or cancerous growths and destroy them. The helper T-cells creates an immune response in the body, activating other immune cells and stimulating antibody production. The thymus “instructs” T-cells what to attack and when. Without the thymus instructions, the T-cells may fail to attack enemies like bacteria, viruses, and cancer cells, or they may even mistake some of your own cells for an invading enemy and attack you–known as autoimmune disease.  Examples of autoimmune disease are: multiple sclerosis, cancer, atherosclerosis, adult-onset diabetes, and rheumatic diseases such as arthritis. Our thymus mystery, it begins its own decline when it is most needed, and while many organs are still developing. Once hitting puberty the age-related thymic involution is characterized by a progressive regression in thymus size, and immunological changes occur while immune resistance becomes weaker, 15% remain by the age 50. The question is, if the thymus gland were to be supported could it also preserve and or restore our immunity?

Glandular therapy may be useful when a person’s endocrine system is under-producing or under-secreting a specific hormone. It can also be used when an organ is weak or diseased–for example, such is often the case with cancer patients. Because glandular therapy is generally effective for those diagnosed with a terminal illness, it is also recommended for preventative measures. Another principle behind the benefit of glandular therapy is that glandular tissues are rich in many nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, polypeptides, enzymes, and many other substances, and this is another reason why they work. The tissues work with all other products and foods you ingest. In this sense, glandular therapy can supply your missing essential nutritional needs in a highly efficient manner. For a tissue cell to repair or replace itself, it must have the raw materials to do so. Glandular therapy provides these raw materials to your weakened organs, glands, and other tissues so that they can start the process of regeneration. And here is the missing link to thymic restoration, the need of adequate B-6 and Zinc within the bloodstream, a not so easy task due to using the proper form for cellular absorption. The best absorbed B6 is pyridoxal phosphate (P5P), the active coenzyme form and for zinc the picolinic acid form, zinc picolinate facilitates the passage of zinc through the gastrointestinal wall. B6 deficiency has been linked to thymic atrophy and reduced antibody production, while increased B6 enables the body to absorb thymus hormones. Zinc is also needed, and by the way, next to magnesium zinc is the most needed. Zinc, is the keystone molecule for thymic proteins, which are immune substances, made in the thymus gland – no zinc, no immunity.

My hypothesis for preventing premature aging is to supplement the organs that gave us our youth, HGH production secreted by the anterior pituitary gland, HGH+, eight drops three times per day, thymus gland two capsules per day, for immune support and recovery three capsules three times per day until well then return to maintenance. Keeping the pineal gland regenerated by taking Sweet Dreams Melapure melatonin, one milligram before bed (this dosage is for anti-aging not for sleep).

Perhaps we could have saved Ponce de Leon’s his search for the Fountain of Youth, if Mr. Leon had known about HGH+, Thymus gland and Sweet Dreams liquid Melatonin, he could’ve saved himself a lot of time. We should plan on living to 150 years, and at the same time live each day as if it is your last, keeping in mind to make room for the unexpected. In the words of Spock, the Vulcan, and not the Doctor, “Live well and prosper.”  \\V//
