London Anti-Aging Conference News
By the editorial staff
This important anti-aging conference brought forth some interesting questions and theories not previously discussed in a rigorous manner at other medical meetings.
For example below, Dr. John Henrickson presented convincing data based on 220 research articles (1) that aging can be reversed by at least twenty years if one applied his methods such as a special diet (Paleolithic), hormone replacement oxytocin (OxyMax), vasopressin (Vasomax), testosterone, DHEA (DHEA-Max), estradiol, relaxin (RelaxinMax), mesotherapy, and four years of his twice-daily injections of IGF-1/hGH/MSH2 (MSH2-Max) (insulinlike growth factor one/human growth hormone/melanocyte-stimulating hormone two). His revolutionary prescription for aging was met by a question in the audience.
Someone wanted to know how his prescription for reversing aging was affected by fasting. He politely answered that IGF-1 is the key repair hormone
essential to repairing damages done by aging and fasting lowers IGF-1 (2). Thus, we probably should avoid fasting because it puts a crimp in our bodies’ natural repair system. We thought this question especially strange because he had just
announced something revolutionary, namely a twenty-year reversal of aging, and
yet members of his audience remained focused on extreme diet restriction. For us, this was like a car company announcing a new 700-horsepower supercar, and
someone in the audience wanting to know how that would affect a 1965 Buick.
Our take on fasting follows: It probably doesn’t hurt to undergo a one-day fast with good fluid intake because this method will flush toxins from the body without substantially affecting long-term levels of IGF-1. In truth, if you are concerned about lowering IGF-1 during a one-day fast, we recommend taking extra booster shots of IGF-1/hGH the day before and the day
after the fast. Also, we believe that a one-day fast will release some toxins, such as mercury, that can be effectively chelated with glutathione (BreatheEasy), DMSA, ACF228, or other common chelator supplements.
Another Vexing Hormone Paradox
Still another vexing paradox about his hormone replacement methods
arose as follows: Fact one: Today, there are a record number of seniors in their
nineties and over one hundred. Fact two: These seniors have across-the-board low levels of all hormones. Fact three: Yet, many of them lead active and happy lives. Therefore, why hasn’t across-the-board deficiencies of all hormones shortened their lives? Strangely, he and other advocates of HRT (hormone replacement therapy) have never asked nor answered this important question. However, we at NaturalsPro.com would like to answer follows:
We have given seniors over the age of eighty-some key hormone and supplement
(CoQ10) replacements and found that they respond with renewed energy and better
quality of life than those seniors over eighty who did not receive HRT. To further
explain, some of the patients became very active and vivacious, much to the surprise of their children and fellow seniors. Interestingly, the pharmacist daughter of an eighty-six-year-old patient was gobsmacked by the dramatic improvement in her mother’s energy and vigor. Consequently, we have concluded that older people can, indeed, get by with across-the-board hormone deficiencies, but they do much better when HRT is employed.
Triage Distribution of Hormones
The eminent Dr. Bruce Ames of the famous Ames Test has proposed in many of his recent lectures that the human body ‘triages’ or distributes needed nutrients such as vitamins to organs that require them for survival. We have extended Dr. Ames’s triage theory to include triaging of hormones and key supplements that are deficient. In other words, we believe that through triage the body distributes very low amounts of hormones to where they are most needed for basic survival, but this survival is a long way from high functioning and/or optimal senior health. With our
own eyes, we have seen the difference in my patients in their advanced senior years when they suddenly became very talkative and enjoyed sitting with their older friends for four or five hours engaged in animated discussions. For us, HRT and other key supplements in seniors yield positive benefits that are exhilarating to behold.
Are Centenarians Still Having Sex?
We are convinced that hormone triage for seniors may be related to the brilliant
work of Craig and Brad Willcox of Harvard University. For many years, these two
eminent scientists— armed with a grant from Harvard—studied why Okinawans
have the longest life spans in the world. The researchers summarized their findings in a thick book titled The Okinawan Program (2001). Dr. Craig Willcox attended this London anti-aging meeting, and we discussed with him his finding that one-hundred-year-old Okinawan women have three times as much estrogen in their bodies as 70-year-old American women. Also, one-hundred-year-old Okinawan men have the same level of testosterone as seventy-year-old American men. These Asian male centenarians have so much testosterone that some of them are still having sex at one hundred years of age and beyond. These facts alone tell us that higher, more optimal levels of hormones— especially
anabolic hormones such as testosterone, estrogens, IGF-1, hGH, and DHEA—are
critical to healthy aging, libido, and longevity. In the coming months, we plan to meet with both Willcox brothers and further discuss implications of diet and hormones versus longevity and quality of life in aged humans.
The Okinawan Diet According to The Wilcox Brothers
The typical Okinawan diet includes Chinese-type cuisine, namely boiled vegetables, and pork. Boiling these foods keeps the cooking temperature to around one hundred degrees Fahrenheit rather than the 300 degrees Fahrenheit often used in grilling
and baking Western foods. The lower temperature avoids carcinogens that form at temperatures much higher than one hundred degrees. Also, boiling allows
unhealthy, inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids to leach out into the boiling water
where it is later discarded. Thus, boiling food seems to be a good habit for
Okinawans and other health-conscious people.
Hearing Loss and Tinnitus News
We discussed new developments in hormone replacement and hearing
enhancement with several delegates. These delegates often wanted something for their patients who not only suffered age-related hearing loss but even worse, who suffered the effects of loud tinnitus that awakens them in the middle of the night. We suggested that those suffering nocturnal patients try 120 micrograms of aldosterone (AldoMax) administered sublingually. In the middle of the sleep cycle, tinnitus can awaken a patient with what sounds like the screeching of banshees. This sound is irritating in the extreme to some sufferers of tinnitus. Within twenty minutes, a small sublingual dose will reduce tinnitus to a bearable dull roar.
Subsequently, a patient can further lower tinnitus and improve hearing volume by
spraying the offending ear canal with patented pending AldoMax ™. However, this spray treatment takes several hours to partially restore hearing and reduce tinnitus.
New Developments in Diet
Dr. Barry Sears of Zone Diet fame gave several highly informative lectures on
improving diet. He returned again and again to the anticarcinogenic effects of some foods rich in polyphenols and anthocyanins. In several private conversations, we asked him what type and how much of these anti-cancer foods one should consume daily. He said the foods richest in polyphenols and anthocyanins are found in fruits and vegetables very dark in colors such as beets, tart cherries, purple potatoes, blackberries, and blueberries. Second, he emphatically stated that we should eat very large quantities of these dark veggies to significantly benefit from preventing cancer and other diseases.
During our illuminating discussions, we recommended that he read the 2013 book,
Eating on the Wild Side, by Jo Robinson. This book gives a detailed historical analysis
of why one hundred generations of farmers have systematically bred out many of
the polyphenols and anthocyanins in our food. (Answer: to eliminate or minimize
their bitter taste.) Also, during many millennia, these farmers have subsequently
bred into our food increasing amounts of sugar (fructose) to deceive our taste buds:
think sweet corn and sweet white potatoes. Dr. Sears said he had heard of this
remarkable book, and he would surely read it soon and get back to us.
Free Radicals Take Center Stage
Most health-conscious consumers these days consume various antioxidants, such as anthocyanins above, believing they will render harmless the body’s unwanted free radicals. What is not commonly known is the simple fact that these common antioxidants have only been tested in vitro, that is to say, in a test tube, not in the human body.
For many years we have wanted to change this scenario and test antioxidants
directly and efficiently in living human beings. We accomplished that goal when we invented a special spectrometer that measures and monitors free radical byproducts, namely lipid peroxides, in living human volunteers. This special
spectrometer allowed us to time study (pharmacokinetics) the benefits of
antioxidants in eliminating toxin free radicals and active oxygens. At this London anti-aging meeting we fielded many questions from the audience regarding Dr. Lippman’s noninvasive in vivo monitoring of human volunteers and
their free radicals. One particular young scientist from the University of Leeds
wanted further details. Our best advice for her was to borrow for six months a near-infrared (NIR) spectrometer from an industrial manufacturer that typically sells them to the food industry for routine, assembly-line measurement of the water content of manufactured food products. After borrowing a spectrometer, she would proceed to change its two interference filters for two other filters set at 1,200 and 1,459 ± 29 nm (nanometers). The 1,459 nm filter detects specifically lipid peroxides caused by free-radical generation in all mammals. Armed with these special filters and a NIR spectrometer, a scientist can monitor changes in lipid peroxides and the countereffects of antioxidants and other radical scavengers.
In twenty-seven research papers in prominent gerontological journals and in a US
patent, we have monitored these substances in vivo and noninvasively in animals
and human volunteers. This extensive monitoring allowed us to optimize
antioxidant mixtures resulting in our patented formula, ACF 228™.
We were delighted that young researchers from England and Europe were again
interested in further developing my NIR spectrometer and monitoring free radicals,
lipid peroxides, and antioxidants. All in all, it was an especially productive conference. The above-mentioned products pictured below can be purchased directly from Canada at

2. How does growth hormone improve your health?
Growth hormone is an anabolic hormone, which means that it builds up your body. It does this part directly by regenerating tissues and mildly increasing the blood sugar level, partly indirectly by stimulating the secretion of another powerful hormone—called IGF-1 or insulin-like growth factor I—because of its analogy with insulin in structure and action (lowering the blood sugar level). Growth hormone not only builds up your muscles, blood vessels and bones more than testosterone—the male hormone—can, but it also builds up the nervous tissue, including the brain and its neurons (brain cells), and increases the blood sugar level to provide more energy. Thus, growth hormone has not only powerful actions on our physical appearance
and health but also, and even more, on our minds and moods. In the brain, growth hormone intensifies the number of contacts between the neurons or
nerve cells while increasing their activity. In the nervous system, growth hormone
strongly stimulates the parasympathetic nerves, the nerves that calm us down. In the blood, growth hormone increases the sugar level, the main substrate for energy in the neurons. These various actions of growth hormone on the brain may explain why it helps considerably to improve our memory and our capacity to multitask—doing different activities at almost the same time while going from one into the other with easiness. They also explain why growth hormone may deeply reduce anxiety and provide a sort of sixth sense for many patients, or a capacity to find solutions all the time to almost any problem, while others who are not treated seem confused, hesitate and turn around the pot when confronted with the same problems.
3. Can meditation help to improve growth hormone effects?
Meditation or spiritual practices may help to increase growth hormone. One hour of training, for example, significantly increased the blood concentrations of growth hormone in elderly men. Increases of 5 to 15% can be expected with such practices. This may not seem like much, but for people with borderline low growth hormone levels, it may make the entire difference. These increases in growth hormones may also explain some of the calmness and inner peace felt by practitioners after a session
4. Growth Hormone & IGF-1 Treatments in Adults
• Symptoms, physical signs (with many patient photos), laboratory tests and diagnosis
of growth hormone and IGF-1 deficiencies.
• Age-related diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular diseases, which are favored by growth hormone/IGF-1 deficiencies.
• Clinical studies in reference one above show that growth hormone/IGF-1 does not favor cancer, diabetes, or cardiovascular disease.
• Clinical studies showing lower serum IGF-1 levels, thus lower growth hormone
activity, within the reference range to be associated with more cancer, cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis, cognitive defects, Alzheimer’s disease.
• Growth hormone treatment for adults: Doses, route of administration, excess signs,
side effects, safety guidelines, follow-up.
• Somatostatin, the hypothalamic inhibitor of growth hormone secretion
