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.

Sneaky Sugar – The “Secret Sugars” that are creeping into your immune system…and destroying it

SNEAKY SUGAR*

The “Secret Sugars” that are creeping into your immune system…and destroying it

People discovered the sweetly satisfying taste of sugarcane on an island in New Guinea nearly 10,000 years ago, and since then, it has ubiquitously sprinkled itself around the world in forms of candy bars and unexpected places like barbeque sauces. When people first picked the raw cane, they chewed on the hard stem until an explosion of sweetness saturated their taste buds and hooked their senses. It spread like wildfire from island to island until it reached the mainland and by 500 A.D., it was already being processed into powders and used as medicine to treat ailments that ranged from headaches to impotence.

Today, it infamously laces its way through our pastries and Piña Coladas, but what about the other less obvious sugar-laden foods? Nutritionists, dieticians, doctors, and dentists alike have warned of sugar’s power to raise energy levels only to plummet soon after and cause a spiral of bad eating habits.

Harvard Medical School has found that even if you aren’t overweight from a diet of sugar and high-calorie fats, it can still increase your risk of dying from heart disease. They reached that startling conclusion after a 15-year study revealed participants who ate 25 percent or more of their calories in sugar, more than doubled their risk of dying from heart disease than those whose diets included 10 percent of sugar. (Learn what sugar is doing to our heart and our immune system at our next webinar)
Where are they getting all of this sugar? Many are getting sugar from sodas, energy drinks, and sports drinks, which account for more than one-third of our national added sugar consumption. However, there are some who are unintentionally having sugar binges with foods that are saturated in sugar, such as sneaky snacks, sauces, and sandwich buns.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) recommends the average person on a 2,000-calorie diet to consume no more than 10 teaspoons of sugar each day, or the equivalent to a 12-ounce soda. Sugar is the quiet chameleon of our food system. It changes forms from sucrose, corn sweeteners, glucose, dextrose, honey, maple sugar, and molasses. It’s guilefully hidden in pizza bread, hot dogs, soups, crackers, canned vegetables, mayonnaise, and peanut butter. (Learn more foods with hidden sugar)

Health advocates turn their backs on added sugars, which are sugars that are literally added to foods or beverages when they’re processed or prepared, because of their emptiness. Added sugars contribute no nutritional value to our diets and are thus essentially useless. But yet we’re consuming almost 152 lbs. of sugar each year, which is equal to 6 cups or 3 lbs. a week. Two hundred years ago, the average American only ate 2 lbs. of sugar each year, according to the USDA. Thanks to our demand, the supply brings us sugar shockers that are ready to ruin our diets everywhere.

Our bodies can only handle 20 grams of sugar a day for adult women and 36 grams of sugar a day for adult men, according to the American Health Association. Anything extra is turned into fat in our bodies unless it’s used as energy in an intense workout or other physical activity, Miller says.

The top 6 “SNEAKY SUGARS” in supposedly healthy diets are:
1.Odwalla Original Superfood Drink: 37 grams of sugar, 190 calories
2.McDonald’s Fruit & Maple Oatmeal: 32 grams of sugar, 290 calories
3.Starbucks Greek Yogurt and Honey Parfait: 30 grams of sugar, 260 calories
4.Ocean Spray Craisins: 29 grams of sugar, 130 calories
5.Yoplait Yogurt, Strawberry: 26 grams of sugar, 170 calories
6.Power Bar Performance, Chocolate Peanut Butter: 26 grams of sugar, 240 calories

Food IS Medicine – The Impact of Diet on Your Immune System (Stem Cells)

Are we really what we eat?

A common misnomer was that diet played a very little role in disease management and prevention. As long as you took medication XYZ your particular ailment would be held in check. You could slam down three Big Macs a day and it wouldn’t make a difference.

Thankfully we know better these days and have seen the impact that diet has on our bodies. From bacterial growth, problems in digestion, to hormonal imbalance, our diets are playing more of a role that you probably think.

Even worse is when our body has to utilize the power of its immune system to undo the damage inflicted by poor foods that stimulate the production of inflammatory cytokines. As inflammation proliferates in the body we end up seeing thing such as hyperinsulinism, weight gain, and overall immune dysfunction.

Conversely, those with a proper diet have been shown to have lower risk factors for cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and so much more. In addition, individuals who have undergone a diet overhaul have seen in many cases their immune function go up.

In this webinar we will discuss how the immune system plays a role with diet, and potential ways that we might have improving stem cell function and overall immune function with diet. New clinical and laboratory data will be discussed that highlights key concepts in this process.

Come and join me and physicians from around the world this June 11th as we explore evidence based information on diet and the immune system, discussing some of the latest breakthroughs and studies in patient care.

Traumatic Brain Injury Clinical Study Information

Today, we understand a great deal more about the healthy brain and its response to trauma, although science still has much to learn about how to reverse damage resulting from head injuries.

TBI costs the country more than $56 billion a year, and more than 5 million Americans alive today have had a TBI resulting in a permanent need for help in performing daily activities. Survivors of TBI are often left with significant cognitive, behavioral, and communicative disabilities, and some patients develop long-term medical complications, such as epilepsy.

“Our work with TBI patients is some of the most important that we do.  Our brave men and women in the military deserve the very best.” – Dr. Dipnarine Maharaj M.D.

Other statistics dramatically tell the story of head injury in the United States. Each year:

  • approximately 1.4 million people experience a      TBI,
  • approximately 50,000 people die from head injury,
  • approximately 1 million head-injured people      are treated in hospital emergency rooms, and
  • approximately 230,000 people are hospitalized      for TBI and survive.
Study/Product Aim

The   principal objective of this research program is to test the use of Granulocyte   Colony Stimulating Factor, a stimulator of pluripotent stem cell production,   for the recovery of function of individuals with treatment refractory   moderate-severe TBI. Complete characterization of physiological and   psychological measures (with INAS) and immunological measures will occur.

Approach

Veterans   from S. Florida with treatment refractory TBI will be recruited for G-CSF   treatment.  Physiological,   psychological, and immunological characterization will be compiled at pre-   and post-G-CSF treatment, and at 3, 6, and 12 months following.  Multivariate repeated measures statistics   will be applied to clinical measures. Integrated analysis using random forest   classifier will be used to compile all acquired data sets.
