Can enough money buy you eternal youth?

NEW YORK (CNNMoney)

A bath in donkey’s milk, the blood of children, tortoise scrotum soup — the list of anti-aging treatments goes back centuries.

No need to go that far.

It turns out, the best kind of anti-aging treatment is inside one’s own body, and the rich are taking advantage of it, exploring the latest research in new technologies, genome mapping and stem cell treatments.

Among them is Oracle billionaire Larry Ellison, a large investor of the Ellison Medical Foundation, which supports research exploring the biology that underlies aging and age-related diseases. And there’s billionaire Peter Nygård, who says he wants to live forever (or die trying), and has suggested he’s found the keys to immortality in stem cell research.

Some doctors agree that stem cells are a key part of chasing youth.

“If you’re a wealthy guy and haven’t stored your stem cells, I think you’re a total idiot,” said Dr. Lionel Bissoon, a New York City physician who sees a number of stressed out, wealthy patients.

For the long term he recommends stem cell storage, which works as a sort of rainy day insurance. The cells are extracted, preferably when the patient is on the younger side — around 30 is said to be a good age — and can then be used to boost an immune system or help to rebuild damaged organs later.

Dr. Dipnarine Maharaj stores cells at his South Florida Bone Marrow Stem Cell Transplant Institute in Boynton Beach, Fla.

“People are looking and finding ways to be able to help them to live longer to spend the money they’ve earned,” he said.

Stem Cell Webinar: Aging & The Immune System – This April 9th at 4pm Eastern Time

Stem Cell Webinar - Dr. Dipnarine Maharaj

Stem Cells, Aging, & The Immune System

Do Stem Cells Hold the Key to Unlocking the Mystery Behind Aging?

As much as the medical community has been trying to cure major diseases like cancer, Parkinson’s, diabetes, etc., could it be that the real disease to understand is aging?  As our immune system ages and decreases in function we start to see dysfunction both internally and externally.

Internally, we see critical markers such as Natural Killer Cell function and Naïve T Cells decrease.  Externally, as patients age, we see wrinkled skin, slowness of movement, and increased susceptibility to infection.

In this webinar we will discuss how the immune system ages, the manifestations that it has in the body, and potential ways that we might have of either slowing down or even reversing the immune aging process. New clinical and laboratory data will be discussed that highlights key concepts in this process.

Come and join Dr. Dipinarine Maharaj MD this Wednesday April 9th as we discuss evidence based information on stem cells, aging, and the immune system.

Learn The Latest in Stem Cell Therapies For Your Patients

Join physicians from around the world in this unique webinar

Each year it seems that our patients are more at risk than ever for life threatening and chronic illness.  Whether it is the rapid growth of diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, or cancer, it seems that traditional medicine has had a difficult time keeping up.

Yet for over 40 years, stem cell transplants have been helping patients survive with quality of life in the face of some of the most dangerous of illnesses.  Physicians who want to do everything they can for their patients are now turning to the proven science of adult stem cell therapeutics.

Today patients with a wide range of diseases are being helped by adult stem cell protocols.  With over 2000 ongoing FDA clinical trials, the potential to expand the field and help patients is tremendous.

Join me for this unique webinar that will discuss some of the latest breakthroughs in patient care utilizing stem cell therapeutics.  We will discuss illnesses such as chronic fatigue syndrome, Alzheimer’s disease, type 1 and type 2 diabetes, fibromyalgia, ALS, cardiac disease, cancer, and much more.

Join me in this special presentation to spread the message of adult stem cells to help patients from around the world:

Stem Cells and Aging Written By Dr. Dipnarine Maharaj M.D.

Stem Cells and Aging

WITH TODAY’S KNOWLEDGE OF STEM CELLS, AGING DOESN’T HAVE TO BE WHAT IT USED TO BE

healthy_pain_free_coupleWhat is aging? Aging is defined by tissue and organ function decline. This decline in function is associated with increased oxidative damage, mitochondrial dysfunction, endocrine imbalance, and genomic instability.  Aging can also be defined as a decline in the responsiveness of the regenerative capacity of an organ. Every organ has stem cells; however some stem cells are more proliferative than others. For example, the stem cells of the bone marrow are highly proliferative, whereas the cells of the liver, heart and kidneys are not. So, is it possible to switch those less proliferative stem cells back on so we can get them to repair those tissues and therefore slow the process of aging? Can we rejuvenate stem cells by exposing them to a young systemic environment?

            Conboy et al established probiotic pairings (shared circulatory system) between young and old mice, thus exposing the old mice to factors present in young serum.2 Results showed that the stem cells from the young mice were able to migrate into the bone marrow of the old mice and aid regeneration of the bone marrow within the old mice. Further investigations revealed that the exposure of old mice to young serum restored the activation of Notch signaling, enhanced the expression of the Notch ligand (Delta), and enhanced proliferation. The findings of this study demonstrate a number of things:
1.     Systemic factors in the blood moderate molecular signaling pathways that are critical to the activation of tissue-specific progenitor cells.
2.     The systemic environment of a young animal promotes successful tissue regeneration.
3.     The systemic environment of older animals fails to promote, or actively inhibits, tissue regeneration.
4.     Aging can be reversed by the modulation of systemic factors.

INTRODUCTION
Stem cells have the power and potential to be one of the most effective agents against aging available to medicine today. A stem cell is an unspecified cell that can both self-renew (produce an exact clone of itself) and differentiate into mature tissues, such as the heart, lung, liver, etc. Adult stem cells are collected from bone marrow (bone marrow stem cells), peripheral blood (peripheral blood stem cells), and cord blood (cord blood stem cells). Embryonic stem cells are collected from a fertilized egg or from an embryo, and can form any of the 200 different tissue types present in the body. It is important to remember that embryonic stem cells are a foreign tissue, and thus carry the risk of all the complications associated with an allogeneic or an unrelated donor transplant if these cells are transplanted into an individual. This paper is concerned with adult stem cells.

Cord Blood Banking Benefits – By Dr. Dipnarine Maharaj MD

Dr. Dipnarine Maharaj M.D. FACP, Adult Stem Cell and Cord Blood Banking Specialist

Storing your baby’s cord blood is one of the easiest things that new parents can do to protect their child’s health.  By storing the cord blood, parents can ensure that their child has a resource should they ever contract or develop a major illness.  With the advances of modern medicine the uses of cord blood stem cells is growing at a rapid pace.  Already cord blood banking can be used for:

Cancer

  • Acute Leukemia
  • Chronic Leukemia
  • High-Risk Solid Tumors
  • Hodgkin & Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
  • Myelodysplastic Syndromes

Blood Disorders

Immune Disorders

Metabolic Disorders

  • Krabbe Disease
  • Hurler Syndrome
  • Metachromatic Leukodystrophy
  • Sanfilippo Syndrome

For the most part Cord Blood is discussed, however, most people don’t know that the Cord Tissue can also be saved and is a viable source of cord blood stem cells.  During this July of Cord Blood Awareness month, we should all be looking at ways that we can provide a bio-insurance for ourselves and Cord Blood Banking for your newborn baby is a great way to do that.

Dr. Dipnarine Maharaj M.D.  is the Medical Director of the Stem Cell Cryobank , an Adult Stem Cell and Cord Blood Bank, as well as the Medical Director of the South Florida Bone Marrow Stem Cell Transplant Institute.
