Is the First Person to Live to 1000 Alive Today?
Anti-aging medicine is the research and practice of developing and using evidence-based clinical methodologies to slow, prevent, or reverse the aging process.
Over the last decade or so, there have been major breakthroughs in the field of antiaging medicine. In research labs across the world, techniques and interventions are being developed that are proving to increase the human lifespan.
So much so that one antiaging researcher has proposed that the first person to live to 1000 years of age may very well be alive today.
Dr. Aubrey de Grey is the co-founder of the SENS Research Foundation. In his role as the foundation’s chief science officer, de Grey has set out to end biological aging. The foundation’s “About” page makes it clear that de Grey believes “a world free of age-related disease is possible.”
In a recent presentation, de Grey boldly stated that the first person that will live to be 1,000 years-old has already been born. He also thinks science will have found a way to perfect antiaging treatments within the next 20 years. Dr. de Grey made the statement while speaking at a Virtual Futures event in London in 2017 as reported in Futurism.
In a TED Talk where de Grey speaks of a time where we will “defeat aging” he also said, “…aging unequivocally causes far more suffering than anything else that we have to experience and contrary to the impression that most of humanity has forced itself into, it’s indeed a problem which is amenable through technological intervention.”
These breakthroughs in antiaging medicine will be in the areas of stem cell rejuvenative techniques, some of which we are already using, such as platelet-rich plasma and advanced nanotechnologies that may be able to reverse aging at the genetic level.
We are living in an exciting and unprecedented time in the field of antiaging medicine. Many innovations are on the horizon, which is all the more reason to optimize your aging now.
Until some of the techniques that Dr. de Grey and others theorize become commonplace, the surest and most effective antiaging technique we have available to us today is hormone replacement therapy.
Has Science Found the Fountain of Youth in Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Research into the science of how and why we age has discovered the many antiaging properties of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
For centuries humans have been searching for the so-called “Fountain of Youth.” Now, we know that we may need to look no further than our own bloodstream.
We are all familiar with what it feels like to “grow old.” Skin starts to sag and wrinkle. We no longer have the strength and vitality we once did. Depression is common, as is a loss of desire for sex. Why do all of these things occur? The science of aging tells us that most, if not all, of these symptoms of “getting old” are caused by the decline of critical hormones such as testosterone and human growth hormone.
Human growth hormone, in particular, has been found to be intimately related to the science of why we age. HGH is responsible for cellular growth and rejuvenation. As we age, HGH levels drop, and your body’s ability to replace dead and dying cells with healthy new ones slows. Eventually, your reach a point where more cells are dying than are being replaced. This results in most if not all of the symptoms we think of as “aging.”
Growth hormone replacement therapy has been clinically proven to “turn back the clock” and reverse these symptoms.
The New England Journal of Medicine, back in the early ’90s, published one of the first studies to show the positive effects of HGH optimization. The lead researcher on the study, Dr. Daniel Rudman, concluded, “We reversed 10 to 20 years of the aging process. We saw fat diminished, muscle tissue increased, and better bone density.”
Elderly patients in this and later studies looking into the antiaging benefits of HGH also reported a general feeling of better health and improved vitality.
HGH optimization therapy has been shown to:
- Rejuvenates and revitalize every cell in the body
- Help burn fat loss and build lean muscle.
- Boost the immune system and improve your ability to heal
- Return energy to more youthful levels
- Overall improve the quality of life.
Since then, there have been many studies that have proven the antiaging properties of HGH. Current research has discovered that HGH may not only help you age better, but it may also indeed be the proverbial “Fountain of Youth.” A recent study sponsored by The National Institutes of Health found that growth hormone could extend the lifespan of mice.
What Every Man or Woman Over 40 Needs to Know About Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormone replacement therapy is the most effective treatment option for relieving the typical symptoms of age-related hormone decline in men and women. Two of the most critical hormones to maintaining youth have been proven to be testosterone and human growth hormone. That is why our bioidentical hormone treatment programs are designed to optimize your levels of these hormones. Depending on your symptoms, you may need testosterone therapy or HGH therapy, or both. We often combine HGH and testosterone replacement to allow our patients to age-optimally and not have to give up any of the things they love about life just because they are growing older!
At NuLife Institute, we realize that not all patients experiencing age-related hormone decline are the same. Unlike some other facilities, we never take a cookie-cutter approach to hormone replacement but tailor your program to your unique needs, goals, and lifestyle.
Our medical director, Dr. Luis Dominguez, has used his unique, customized approach to help thousands of patients reverse the clock on aging and enjoy a whole new lease on life. Dr. Luis Dominguez has applied his inquisitive mind and passion for evidence-based Integrative Medicine to focus on utilizing a whole-body approach that provides life-changing results.
“Since working with Dr. Dominguez and his staff at NuLife, I have never looked or felt better. I have more energy; my night sweats are gone, and intimacy between my husband and me has never been better. Thank you, NuLife!” – Pattie S. Hollywood Fl.
“I am 45 and never suspected that I could be suffering from low testosterone. But I was tired, I was working out but still gaining weight, and I just felt grumpy all of the time. Now thanks to hormone replacement, I am full of energy and enjoying life again!” Scott E., Aventura, FL.
