I was preparing to write a post to share more info on the critical importance of telomere health and let you know that there now only two spots left for now in our Core 4 Longevity Club,but just as was going to write, this post from a colleague and former mentor, Dr. Dave Woynarowski, a medical pioneer and successful long-term user of telomere supporting protocols, hit my inbox.
I hope you take a moment to read this well-written piece. Then take a moment to follow the links to learn more about how it is now possible to measure and even restore youthful telomere length...
And if you want to join us in the Longevity Club before it closes for a few months, shoot me an email or call me personally at 360.450.3768 to discuss. All of our current members, are all doing very well and anxiously awaiting are new upgraded Live Long formula...
So with out further adieu, here is Dr. Dave's post.
You will probably find this email a bit distressing for at least a couple of reasons.
The biggest one is that I am going to do what I always do: Tell You the Truth!
Now I will say this is one of the few times when I will admit there might be more than one truth. But this is mine garnered from decades of experience in taking care of people and dealing with aging.
Telomere length is probably the most powerful predictor of how you are aging and where your next 5 to 10 years will lead you. You have, if you have been with me long enough, heard me say that telomere length is the BS detector of anti-aging medicine.
I don’t care what diet you eat.
I don’t care what exercise you do.
I don’t care how much stress relief you practice or how much you sleep.
If your telomeres are getting shorter or more specifically if you are accumulating more and more critically short telomeres over time, you are aging, If your telomeres are eroding slowly you are aging slowly. If your telomeres are growing slowly, odds are you are getting biologically younger.
Now be advised that in spite of lots of data and studies to support that statement it is still not widely accepted. Neither is telomerase activation, stem cells or gene therapy. I’ve also said this before: lots of people will negate this stuff until it is so obvious that it works no one can argue. Then they will say I knew it all along.
Our book The Immortality Edge got great reviews and lots of them, but still the “most useful” reviews were the critical ones written 6 years ago. Where are those people now that everything we said has come true? Not one word from any of them!
Ok I have actually just asked you to qualify yourself in a very subtle way. Most people reading the above will pick a side they are one and define their own attitude to pretty much everything that is going on in anti-aging medicine-stem cells, telomeres, and gene therapy.
So here is the distressing part. If you believe in the importance of telomeres, what is your telomere length? That sad reality is that even though Life Length makes a phenomenal assay, only 10% of my clients who are on telomerase activators or support compounds know the answer to that question.
I have long ago accepted that in place of something that may be even more important.
That something is that you DO EVERYTHING YOU CAN to slow the erosion of your telomeres, and possibly reverse it.
Until gene therapy becomes available our best best is to combine a telomerase activating blend, with high levels of omega 3 (12% or greater), moderate exercise, proper diet, sleep, stress release and now you have a big part of the anti-aging picture.
We can be objective you and me. We can measure and follow these values. But it does take money and time and a little bit of dedication. In place of that, if you do all the rest of the stuff, I have a lot less worry for your future. And I have less worry that you will grow old before we find the next big break through.
Thanks you Dr. Dave!
Yes, you need to tend to your telomeres!
Of all the markers we use to track our health from the dated markers such as cholesterol, glucose and blood pressure to more functional ones such as hemoglobin A1C, lipoproteins and C-reactive to the more advanced such as oxidized LDL, MTFHR and ADMA/SDMA, these still only look at one particular aspect of health and do not take into account all the factors of genetics and our life.
The facts are that telomere length takes into account both genetic inheritance, age and lifestyle, environment and diet to let us know not only how we are aging but our potential risk of disease. Making the knowledge of current and how telomere length changes over time, the most important health marker you can track and modify.
