Today I want to tell you about an advance in anti-aging that will affect us all.
It’s a powerful way to heal your body and rejuvenate damaged tissue.
I’m talking about stem cells.
Stem cells are perhaps the ultimate natural healer.
In fact, they are so important to the future of anti-aging medicine, I’ve given them one of the biggest platforms at my upcoming anti-aging conference on October 8 and 9.
That means the next generation of anti-aging therapy is taking shape right now in South Florida.
In the next couple of months, work will be finished on my new Palm Beach Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine… just in time to coincide with the anti-aging event of the year.
My anti-aging conference will be held at Mar-a-Lago, the majestic 126-room estate of billionaire property tycoon Donald Trump in Palm Beach, Florida, and it will host some of the leading speakers in this cutting-edge field of medicine.
My conferences have become known for groundbreaking revelations in the field of anti-aging…
In 2008, I revealed to attendees the pioneering research that unlocked the secrets of the telomere – the most important discovery in the history of anti-aging medicine.
In my keynote address, I stated that this research had the potential to reverse age-related decline for the very first time. And I predicted that the scientists responsible for it would eventually win a Nobel Prize.
The following year, the Nobel Committee for Physiology or Medicine awarded its prize to Elizabeth Blackburn, Carol Greider and Jack Szostak for their work on telomeres.
At this year’s conference we’ll be producing more revelatory anti-aging news… this time regarding stem cell therapy.
You may be unfamiliar with stem cell therapy… but that’s about to change. That’s because it has the potential to transform how modern medicine treats age-related disease.
You’re born with a reserve of “replacement cells,” called stem cells. These stem cells are like a blank slate, and you can use them to replace any kind of cell that’s damaged, old, or dying.
When they’re deployed, stem cells heal and regenerate the tissue or organ they’re assigned to, and can help you make stunning recoveries.
You have plenty of stem cells when you are young. But you lose them as you age. In fact, the amount of adult stem cells you have is very limited.
The practice of stem cell therapy reintroduces new stem cells to your body to displace the old and damaged ones, and this kicks off repair and healing.
This breakthrough treatment has the potential to cure chronic diseases and ailments we once accepted as a natural part of the aging process, including cancer, heart and lung disease, diabetes and joint pain.
Stem cell therapy will be one of the new therapies offered at my Palm Beach Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine in October. And my anti-aging conference on October 8-9 will feature three pioneers in stem cell therapy: Dr. Dipnarine Maharaj and Dr. Charles Theofilos.
Dr. Maharaj is a hematologist and oncologist at the South Florida Bone Marrow/Stem Cell Transplant Institute. He’s developed a leading-edge cancer treatment center that applies stem cell therapies to stimulate the patients’ immune systems to enable them to ward off cancers on their own.
And Dr. Charles Theofilos, MD., runs The Spine Center in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. He’s a leader in stem cell treatment for those suffering from debilitating spine, neck, and joint pain.
I’ll be revealing additional details about my new institute and the new anti-aging conference in the coming weeks. But if you’d like to get a jumpstart on optimizing your body’s stem cell production before October rolls around, you can take steps in that direction right now.
First, exercise vigorously 4 to 6 days per week. A very thorough review of the effect of high-intensity exertion on stem cells was taken up by a group of researchers at the University of Palermo in Italy. After pouring over dozens of peer-reviewed studies, they concluded vigorous exercise can dramatically increase the number of adult stem cells your body generates on its own.1
Second, make sure you get eight hours of interrupted sleep per night. Swiss researchers from the Center for Integrative Genomics discovered how a disruption of normal sleep rhythms could disrupt stem cell functioning.2 Published in the leading journal Cell Stem Cell, the scientists realized that your stem cells need their beauty sleep to survive.
And finally, try fasting two days at a time every six months. This is a technique I’ve used for years to jumpstart the healing and rejuvenation. Now we’re getting the first glimpse into the science behind it. A landmark study from the University of Southern California gives us the first natural intervention triggering stem cell-based regeneration of an organ or system. That’s big news!
Their research shows that this kind of fasting causes stem cells to awake from their normal dormant state and start regenerating. This practice destroyed damaged and older cells, and caused new cells to be born, effectively renewing the immune system.3
Science is teaching us that the tools needed to heal ourselves are already inside our bodies. It’s time we start using them.
To your good health,
