Vitamin E, anabolic / catatoxic steroids, egg yolks stop soft tissue calcification and (maybe) even aging

A great series of studies performed in the 1960s, with Hans Selye spearheading most of the investigations. It is amazing how much was known about human disease and aging, and how much of that knowledge has been so thoroughly forgotten to the point that doctors nowadays have never even heard of the term “catatoxic”. One … Read more Vitamin E, anabolic / catatoxic steroids, egg yolks stop soft tissue calcification and (maybe) even aging

Metabolic dysfunction is a primary cause of aging and its symptom Alzheimer Disease (AD)

As it seems, not all hope is lost when it comes to mainstream medicine. Just a few days ago I posted about a landmark human study with AD demonstrating that the a low daily dose of the cheap, unpatentable chemical methylene blue (MB) may stop AD. LSD may do the same, and both MB and … Read more Metabolic dysfunction is a primary cause of aging and its symptom Alzheimer Disease (AD)

Increasing metabolism may reverse Alzheimer Disease (AD) and general aging

Yet another study demonstrating the remarkable parallels between the decline in function (metabolism) and the structural abnormalities that occur not only in specific pathologies such as AD but also in the generalized degradation known as “aging”. FDA currently does not recognize aging as a disease, but the evidence for it is rapidly accumulating. Just a … Read more Increasing metabolism may reverse Alzheimer Disease (AD) and general aging

Aging likely caused by decreased respiration / metabolism, not genetic mutations

It looks like after a century of utter idiotism in biology and medicine, those two disciplines may finally be getting on the right course. Despite the fact that the “rate of living” theory is still the dominant theory of aging in the halls of academia, a new generation of scientists is emerging that is not … Read more Aging likely caused by decreased respiration / metabolism, not genetic mutations

Estrogen and cortisol, not androgens, suppress immunity

There is a very famous theory in reproductive biology still considered the dominant one in its field. Namely, males have to accept a trade-off between androgen levels and immunity. It is known as the immunocompetence handicap hypothesis (ICHH). Higher androgen levels, the theory goes, allow the male to (physically) outcompete other males around him for … Read more Estrogen and cortisol, not androgens, suppress immunity

PUFA are immunosuppressive, fasting and protein restriction (possibly) even more so

Several great studies, which quickly illustrate the connection between PUFA, immune system, estrogen, cortisol, cancer and the protective role vitamin A/E play as well as their likely mechanism(s) of action. As I mentioned on one of the first podcasts with Danny Roddy, the role of PUFA as immunosuppressants is actually well-known in the organ transplant … Read more PUFA are immunosuppressive, fasting and protein restriction (possibly) even more so

Blue light accelerates aging and reduces lifespan by more than 50%

In one of his interviews, Peat mentioned that red light exposure may be the most fundamental protective factor in nature, and that a deficiency of it (as commonly seen in Western lifestyles) may be the main driver of systemic aging and the diseases associated with it. The study below provides strong evidence in support of … Read more Blue light accelerates aging and reduces lifespan by more than 50%

Reversing human aging likely possible with progesterone / DHEA

I decided to make a post on this topic after seeing the popular press articles about a study claiming reversal of human biological (as opposed to chronological) aging. That study used human growth hormone (HGH), DHEA and metformin combination as an intervention that restores thymus health and thus reverses immunosenescence (immune system aging). It is … Read more Reversing human aging likely possible with progesterone / DHEA

Niacinamide may restore female fertility in old age

The mainstream medical dogma is that after the onset of menopause, female reproductive potential is essentially zero. I posted a thread recently that challenged that dogma and demonstrated that infertility is essentially an energetic dysfunction process and can be reversed with exposure to red light. Fertility depends on metabollism (ATP), not age Now, the study … Read more Niacinamide may restore female fertility in old age

Mitochondria (energy) as the main driver of health, intelligence, and aging

We are finally starting to see Peat enter the mainstream and article like the one below are calling for a complete review of what we know about health and aging and how intelligence is tied to them. As the authors says, or actually borrows from Peat, there is solid evidence that mitochondrial function and ATP … Read more Mitochondria (energy) as the main driver of health, intelligence, and aging
