The History of Alkyrol – Part 5a

The aging game (and more)

Many scientists now believe that aging is not a normal process, but that it is a chronic disease process resulting from free-radical damage. While certain physiological changes are associated with the passage of time, there is no programmed aging process, no aging genes that determine how long you will be young, no death gene that “knocks us off” at some predetermined age.

What we call aging is essentially physical changes associated with the passage of years. The first change we see is usually gray hair that eventually turns white. Yet, there are many beautiful women (and men) who have gray hair in their 20s! By no stretch of the imagination would we call this a negative change, since these individuals are perfectly attractive.

However, when gray hair is associated with faded, sagging, or wrinkled skin, we consider the individual “old.” Some of these people are still in their 30s! Are they old? Absolutely not, but they have probably been afflicted with severe free-radical damage. Gray hair, for example, is hair that no longer produces melanin (i.e., pigment).

The process is not irreversible, since many gray-haired individuals, who have undergone radiation treatment to their heads, have regrown jet-black hair over the next few months. I have seen this many times in my patients who went through radiation therapy for metastatic cancer. Degenerative diseases in older people, such as muscle wasting, is usually the result of inactivity. This is known as “the rocking chair syndrome” following retirement. And it is certainly not inevitable.

In one study, individuals 80 years old and older were put on a weight-lifting program for four weeks. They had been mostly confined to beds or chairs. But in just two weeks of regular exercise, they improved their muscle strength to the point of self care! It is remarkable how resilient the body is, and how many repair systems can help us restore health…

The History of Alkyrol – Part 3

Alkylglycerols for cancer prevention and treatment

One of the first uses for shark liver oil was to control the side effects of radiation treatment in cancer patients. The initial studies were done in Sweden by the Drs. Astrid Brohult, Sven Brohult, and Johan Brohult, and published in the journal Nature in 1962. In the 1960s and 1970s, positive results were also observed in three different clinical experiments.

As mentioned previously, after treatment with shark liver oil, there was a significant reduction in radiation injuries following X-ray treatment for cancer of the cervix, as well as an increase in survival rates. In any form of cancer therapy, the use of alkylglycerols will both intensify the treatment’s benefits, while decreasing the severity of unwanted side effects.

Consider that cancer is a malignant, neoplastic (i.e., spreading) disease, which means it is characterized by new, uncontrolled growth. That’s why the alkylglycerols are effective for this condition. As an immune stimulant, alkylglycerols activate macrophages, making cancer cells more susceptible to attack. Shark liver oil provides other active ingredients, such as squalamine, that help treat cancer.

Why DHEA might change your life

Dehydroepiandrosterone, DHEA, is a natural hormone produced primarily by the adrenal gland. It circulates in the body in its water-soluble form, called DHEA-sulfate or DHEAS. First isolated in 1934, it has, for many years been considered of little importance.

dhea_dehydroepiandrosterone

It is now known to be an essential component in a vast number of physiological functions in the body, including metabolic conversion to both male and female sex hormones (androgens and estrogens), and to have an inverse relationship to the production of stress hormones.

As levels of stress hormones rise, levels of DHEA drop. Blood levels of DHEA start rising before puberty and usually peak between the ages of twenty and thirty. At that time DHEA is the most abundant hormone in the body.

Unlike other adrenal steroids, such as cortisol, DHEA begins to steadily decline with age, suggesting that DHEA may be a measure of the aging process itself.

DHEA levels have been found to be higher in healthy individuals than in unhealthy men and women, which has initiated research linking DHEA to healthy aging.

dhea_health

More than 5000 research papers have appeared over the last three decades, suggesting a connection between DHEA levels and a great variety of diseases.

DHEA is currently the focus for some of the most interesting medical research of this century. DHEA does not seem to be controlled by a “feedback loop”, as with other hormones, and supplementation is not likely to stop the body’s own production.

Convince yourself of DHEA – DeHydroEpiAndrosterone – The Fountain of Youth.

Longer Life Pills® – Feeling better, Living better, Aging better!

The Longer Life Pills® is an exceptional set of pills that contains the essential nutrients for you to live longer. It is a scientifically conceived pill based on the best and most recent research specifically revised from Dr. Thierry Hertoghe. Only solid studies with significant results in humans, and not in other species, have been taken into account. The aim of Longer Life Pills is to give you a complete formula that will provide all the compounds and ingredients you need daily for a healthy and long life.

longer_life_pills_eurohealth

Ecological: these pills are devoided of any additives, and can in this sense be considered as “ecological”, toxin-free pills. The capsules or tablets that contain the nutrients are in safe, low allergenic material, generally from plant origin.

High-quality: all the nutrients are of pharmaceutical grade from the best sources.

Life-prolonging effects? How long can the persistent intake of these pills prolong life? Long-term efficacy of the multi-nutrient pills on human lifespan is difficult to evaluate as no study has been done of the effect of this particular set of pills on the life span. It is almost impossible to do for any product without a long-term 100-year study that starts in young adults and follows them up during the next 100 years until all participants have died. You and I would not be there anymore to wait for the results.

Nevertheless, what we can do is rely on the various studies that have shown significant 10 to 80% mortality reductions in people (healthy or sick) when they regularly take one of the nutrients present in the Longer Life Pills®. This evidence strongly supports the view that the regular daily intake of the Longer Life Pills® during years is not only safe but may prolong life from one to 18 years, provided the diet and lifestyle are healthy enough and do not oppose the life-prolonging potential of the longer life nutrients.

Melatonin for a better sleep

Research reports on Melatonin:

▪︎ SLEEP/INSOMNIA/JET LAG/SHIFT WORK

Dietary supplementation has shown Melatonin to be a natural sleep inducer and a means to reset the internal body clock as needed for the relief of temporary sleep disturbances and jetlag.

Clinical studies have shown Melatonin to have an excellent effect on insomnia, jet-lag and shift work maladaptation, without the side effects of conventional sleeping pills such as “hang-over” and habit-forming use-dependence.

▪︎ IMMUNE DEFENSE SYSTEM

Melatonin buffers the effects of stress and reduces the gradual decline of immunity that accompanies stress. Researchers have demonstrated Melatonin’s ability to treat Cancer, slow progression of AIDS, make the body more resistant to colds, and protect the immune system from the toxic effects of chemotherapy.

Numerous studies reveal that supplemental Melatonin can restore thymus gland function, boost immune function by increasing the production of T-cells, important to our natural defenses, and increase the body’s anti-tumor activity, particularly in advanced Cancer patients.

Melatonin also shows promise as a treatment for a number of other diseases and conditions, including Hypertension, high Cholesterol, various kinds of Cancer, Autism, Epilepsy, Migraine, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, and Alzheimer’s disease.

▪︎ LONGEVITY/AGING/QUALITY OF LIFE

Melatonin has strong anti-aging properties. According to the experts, Melatonin has many vital functions in our body, therefore prolonging our life span. It is considered to be “The Policeman of all Policemen”, regulating the secretion of other important bodily hormones, governing the body at large and of course also the important aging process.

Many people take supplemental Melatonin every day for this purpose rather than for insomnia/sleep deprivation conditions. In such cases a dosage of 0.2 – 1 mg is normally enough.

▪︎ ANTIOXIDANT/FREE RADICAL SCAVANGER

Melatonin has been shown to be an extremely potent and wide-ranging antioxidant, protecting every part of the cell in the body, including vital brain cells. Antioxidants are vital to our health because they rid the body of dangerously reactive molecules called free radicals.

Over 100 diseases have now been linked with free radical damage, including Cataracts, Macular Degeneration, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s, Arthritis, Cancer and the Aging Process itself.

▪︎ SEASONAL AFFECTIVE DISORDER (“SAD”)

Melatonin has been shown to be effective in persons with SAD, Seasonal Affective Disorder, which is caused by the breakdown of the circadian/body-clock rhythm.
