Why Do We Age? The Reasons for Aging Explained
Why Do We Age? The Reasons for Aging Explained
Why do we age? This is the one question everyone wonders about but never gets an answer to. The whole Anti-Aging industry talks about everything else under the sun but avoids the question. “why do we age?” Why do they avoid it? They avoid it because they don’t know the answers. The problem is if one does not know the answer to that thorny question, a proposed treatment protocol for aging, while effective, leaves a lingering doubt in the minds of patients that something is not wholly right.
Patients may still buy a protocol, but we do not want any lingering doubts concerning anything having to do with the Anti-Aging subject. In fact the question “why do we age at all?” is so fundamentally basic that almost no patient even asks the question verbally. BUT, in their deeper mind, that question lingers unanswered for as long as the patient is involved in Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation.
How do I know? In 2003 I gave a questionnaire to some 400 clients with 20 questions. They were asked out of these 20 questions which one would they like answered the most? 78% checked
Let us now look at some of the reasons we age.
- Wear and tear theory. In this theory, medical scientists agree that constant use of the human body wears out its vital parts and components. Did you know that 2.5 million red blood cells die every second and are instantly replaced by another 2.5 million new red blood cells every second? The human heart must pump 2000 gallons of blood a day. In a lifetime we will pump 2 million gallons of blood, enough to fill 2 super tankers. The heart must beat 100,000 times per day…that is 35 million beats per year and over 2.5 Billion beats in the average lifetime.So the extreme repetitive use of the body simply wears out all of its parts over time. This is, without the doubt, one of the reasons the body ages, but not the only one….and not a reason that can not be overcome by the correct Anti-Aging Protocol.
- Genes vs. Lifestyles. According to this theory of aging, your biological clock is ticking away at a predetermined rate. This theory says that your genetic DNA holds the key to your planned rate of demise from day one. Basically, this theory of aging says your genes determine everything about you including the exact age you will live to be.While there is a genetic component to aging, scientists have found that what you do with your environmental factors has a greater determination on how you will age and how long you will live.
- Use it or lose it the theory of aging. This is a very simple theory which says the body is in need of constant daily tune ups. So if you do not use your muscles they will atrophy and this is true. The less you use your muscles the less they will be in their peak prime condition. The less sexual activity you have the less well your sex organs will function and so on. In a way, this theory is the opposite of the wear and tear theory of aging. Without question, there is some merit to this theory. Scientists who believe in this theory even say we should allow ourselves to be exposed to germs so our immune system will get a workout and be in better shape for the long run. True enough but this theory alone does not fully explain aging even though it is a part of how we do age.
- Short Telomere Theory of Aging. This is one of the most important discoveries ever made to the way our bodies age and why.Inside the nucleus of our cells, genes are arranged along twisted double-stranded molecules of DNA called chromosomes. At the ends of the chromosomes are stretches of DNA called telomeres, which protect our genetic data, make it possible for cells to regenerate and divide, and hold some great secrets to how we age.Telomeres have been compared with the plastic tips on shoelaces because they keep chromosome ends from fraying and sticking to each other, which would destroy our genetic information.Here is the massive problem: Each time a cell divides the telomeres get shorter… when they get too short the cell cannot regenerate anymore and dies. The telomeres in cancer cells never shorten and thus make cancer immortal cells which divide forever unless we kill them with radiation and chemo. So what we are looking for as in the starfish which is immortal and has telomeres that never shorten is the same for humans…we want to figure out how to make it so that human cells telomeres do not shorten with each cell division.One substance we have found that makes telomeres longer is HGH (Human Growth Hormone.) We have also discovered that a key component in the Ashwagandha herb, makes telomeres longer. Without question, this is a way to increase lifespan and foster better health. Both HGH and Ashwagandha work to make telomeres longer by creating the enzyme telomerase.Youthful blood levels of both Estrogen and Testosterone increase the length of telomeres by creating more telomerase. So much of what Anti-Aging protocols are doing actually eventuate in making more telomerase and thus longer telomeres. Here at AAI, we find this extremely important and exciting as we are always researching daily how to find new methods of creating longer telomeres and thus longer, healthier life.
We are just scratching the surface in the expose of what makes humans age and how to reverse that process. Here at AAI. we will continue to make new information like this available to the public as well as keeping some important discoveries private and proprietary to AAI and their clients only.
We are greatly encouraged that our longevity educational doctor; Dr. Larry Sosna has discovered several additional herbs from Russia which makes the telomeres longer. Dr. Sosna is committed to finding enough telomere increasing substances from nature to keep all of our telomeres long enough to make a very serious contribution to increased lifespan and vigorous, perfected states of good health.
