Taxus baccata – Wikipedia

Posted: July 28, 2018 at 3:44 am

Taxus baccata is a conifer native to western, central and southern Europe, northwest Africa, northern Iran and southwest Asia.[3] It is the tree originally known as yew, though with other related trees becoming known, it may now be known as English yew,[4] or European yew.

The word yew is from Proto-Germanic *wa-, possibly originally a loanword from Gaulish *ivos, compare Breton ivin, Irish o, Welsh ywen, French if (see Eihwaz for a discussion). Baccata is Latin for bearing red berries. The word yew as it was originally used seems to refer to the color brown.[5] The yew () was known to Theophrastus, who noted its preference for mountain coolness and shade, its evergreen character and its slow growth.[6]

Most Romance languages, with the notable exception of French (if), kept a version of the Latin word taxus (Italian tasso, Corsican tassu, Occitan teis, Catalan teix, Gasconic tech, Spanish tejo, Portuguese teixo, Galician teixo and Romanian tis) from the same root as toxic. In Slavic languages, the same root is preserved: Russian tis (), Slovakian tis, Slovenian tisa, Serbian-Croatian-Bosnian tisa/. Albanian borrowed it as tis.

In German it is known as Eibe.

In Iran, the tree is known as sorkhdr (Persian: , literally "the red tree").

The common yew was one of the many species first described by Linnaeus. It is one of around 30 conifer species in seven genera in the family Taxaceae, which is placed in the order Pinales.

It is a small to medium-sized evergreen tree, growing 1020 metres (3366ft) (exceptionally up to 28 metres (92ft)) tall, with a trunk up to 2 metres (6ft 7in) (exceptionally 4 metres (13ft)) in diameter. The bark is thin, scaly brown, coming off in small flakes aligned with the stem. The leaves are flat, dark green, 14 centimetres (0.391.57in) long and 23 millimetres (0.0790.118in) broad, arranged spirally on the stem, but with the leaf bases twisted to align the leaves in two flat rows either side of the stem, except on erect leading shoots where the spiral arrangement is more obvious. The leaves are poisonous.[3][7]

The seed cones are modified, each cone containing a single seed, which is 47 millimetres (0.160.28in) long, and partly surrounded by a fleshy scale which develops into a soft, bright red berry-like structure called an aril. The aril is 815 millimetres (0.310.59in) long and wide and open at the end. The arils mature 6 to 9 months after pollination, and with the seed contained, are eaten by thrushes, waxwings and other birds, which disperse the hard seeds undamaged in their droppings. Maturation of the arils is spread over 2 to 3 months, increasing the chances of successful seed dispersal. The seeds themselves are poisonous and bitter, but are opened and eaten by some bird species including hawfinches,[8] greenfinches and great tits.[9] The aril is not poisonous, it is gelatinous and very sweet tasting. The male cones are globose, 36 millimetres (0.120.24in) in diameter, and shed their pollen in early spring. The yew is mostly dioecious, but occasional individuals can be variably monoecious, or change sex with time.[3][7][10]

Taxus baccata can reach 400 to 600 years of age. Some specimens live longer but the age of yews is often overestimated.[11] Ten yews in Britain are believed to predate the 10th century.[12] The potential age of yews is impossible to determine accurately and is subject to much dispute. There is rarely any wood as old as the entire tree, while the boughs themselves often become hollow with age, making ring counts impossible. Evidence based on growth rates and archaeological work of surrounding structures suggests the oldest yews, such as the Fortingall Yew in Perthshire, Scotland, may be in the range of 2,000 years,[13][14][15] placing them among the oldest plants in Europe. One characteristic contributing to yew's longevity is that it is able to split under the weight of advanced growth without succumbing to disease in the fracture, as do most other trees. Another is its ability to give rise to new epicormic and basal shoots from cut surfaces and low on its trunk, even at an old age.[citation needed]

The Fortingall Yew in Perthshire, Scotland, has the largest recorded trunk girth in Britain and experts estimate it to be 2,000 to 3,000 years old, although it may be a remnant of a post-Roman Christian site and around 1,500 years old.[16] The Llangernyw Yew in Clwyd, Wales, can be found at an early saint site and is about 1,500 years old.[17] Other well known yews include the Ankerwycke Yew, the Balderschwang Yew, the Caesarsboom, the Florence Court Yew, and the Borrowdale Fraternal Four, of which poet William Wordsworth wrote. The Kingley Vale National Nature Reserve in West Sussex has one of Europe's largest yew woodlands.

The oldest specimen in Spain is located in Bermiego, Asturias. It is known as Teixu l'Iglesia in the Asturian language. It stands 15m (49ft) tall with a trunk diameter of 6.82m (22.4ft) and a crown diameter of 15 m. It was declared a Natural Monument on April 27, 1995 by the Asturian Government and is protected by the Plan of Natural Resources.[18]

A unique forest formed by Taxus baccata and European box (Buxus sempervirens) lies within the city of Sochi, in the Western Caucasus.

The oldest Irish Yew (Taxus baccata 'Fastigiata'), the Florence Court Yew, still stands in the grounds of Florence Court estate in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. The Irish Yew has become ubiquitous in cemeteries across the world and it is believed that all known examples are from cuttings from this tree.[19]

Yews in this genus are primarily separate-sexed, and males are extremely allergenic, with an OPALS allergy scale rating of 10 out of 10. Completely female yews have an OPALS rating of 1, and are considered "allergy-fighting".[20] Male yews bloom and release abundant amounts of pollen in the spring; completely female yews only trap pollen while producing none.[20]

All parts of a yew plant are toxic to humans, due to taxine alkaloids, with the exception of the yew berries (however, their seeds are toxic). Additionally, male and monoecious yews in this genus release cytotoxic pollen, which can cause headaches, lethargy, aching joints, itching, and skin rashes; it is also a trigger for asthma.[20][21] These pollen grains are only 15 microns in size,[22] and can easily pass through most window screens.[20]

Taxines A and B the major taxine alkaloids found in the yew plant are cardiotoxic. The taxines act as calcium and sodium channel antagonists, causing an increase in cytoplasmic calcium.[23] Taxine B is a worse cardiotoxin than taxine A.[24]

The foliage itself remains toxic even when wilted, and toxicity increases in potency when dried.[25] Ingestion and subsequent excretion by birds whose beaks and digestive systems do not break down the seed's coating are the primary means of yew dispersal.[26] Horses have a relatively low tolerance to taxine, with a lethal dose of 200400mg/kg body weight; cattle, pigs, and other livestock are only slightly less vulnerable.[27] Several studies[28] have found taxine LD50 values under 20mg/kg in mice and rats.

Symptoms of yew poisoning include an accelerated heart rate, muscle tremors, convulsions, collapse, difficulty breathing, circulation impairment and eventually cardiac arrest. However, there may be no symptoms, and if poisoning remains undetected death may occur within hours.[29] Fatal poisoning in humans is very rare, usually occurring after consuming yew foliage. The leaves are more toxic than the seed.[30]

In the ancient Celtic world, the yew tree (*eburos) had extraordinary importance; a passage by Caesar narrates that Cativolcus, chief of the Eburones poisoned himself with yew rather than submit to Rome (Gallic Wars 6: 31). Similarly, Florus notes that when the Cantabrians were under siege by the legate Gaius Furnius in 22 BC, most of them took their lives either by the sword, by fire, or by a poison extracted ex arboribus taxeis, that is, from the yew tree (2: 33, 5051). In a similar way, Orosius notes that when the Astures were besieged at Mons Medullius, they preferred to die by their own swords or by the yew tree poison rather than surrender (6, 21, 1). The Irish name Ean / Eoghan is thought to be derived from the yew's importance in ancient Ireland and means 'of the yew'.[citation needed]

The yew is traditionally and regularly found in churchyards in England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Northern France (more specifically in Normandy). Some examples can be found in La Haye-de-Routot or La Lande-Patry. It is said that up to 40 people could stand inside one of the La-Haye-de-Routot yew trees and the Le Mnil-Ciboult yew is probably the largest one (13 m diameter[32]). Indeed, some of these trees are exceptionally large (over 5 m diameter) and may be over 2,000 years old. Sometimes monks planted yews in the middle of their cloister, as at Muckross Abbey (Ireland) or abbaye de Jumiges (France, Normandy). Some ancient yew trees are located at St Mary the Virgin Church, Overton-on-Dee in Wales.

In Asturian tradition and culture the yew tree has had a real link with the land, the people, the ancestors and the ancient religion. It was tradition on All Saints Day to bring a branch of a yew tree to the tombs of those who had died recently so they will find the guide in their return to the Land of Shadows. The yew tree has been found near chapels, churches and cemeteries since ancient times as a symbol of the transcendence of death, and is usually found in the main squares of the villages where people celebrated the open councils that served as a way of general assembly to rule the village affairs.[33]

It has been suggested that the sacred tree at the Temple at Uppsala was an ancient yew tree.[34][35] The Christian church commonly found it expedient to take over existing pre-Christian sacred sites for churches. It has also been suggested that yews were planted at religious sites as their long life was suggestive of eternity, or because being toxic they were seen as trees of death.[36] Another suggested explanation is that yews were planted to discourage farmers and drovers from letting animals wander onto the burial grounds, the poisonous foliage being the disincentive. A further possible reason is that fronds and branches of yew were often used as a substitute for palms on Palm Sunday.[37][38][39]

In interpretations of Norse cosmology, the tree Yggdrasil has traditionally been interpreted as a giant ash tree. Some scholars now think that in the past an error has been made in the interpretation of the ancient writings, and that the tree is most likely a European yew (Taxus baccata).[40]

Certain compounds found in the bark of yew trees were discovered by Wall and Wani in 1967 to have efficacy as anti-cancer agents. The precursors of the chemotherapy drug paclitaxel (taxol) was later shown to be synthesized easily from extracts of the leaves of European yew,[41] which is a much more renewable source than the bark of the Pacific yew (Taxus brevifolia) from which they were initially isolated. This ended a point of conflict in the early 1990s; many environmentalists, including Al Gore, had opposed the destructive harvesting of Pacific yew for paclitaxel cancer treatments. Docetaxel can then be obtained by semi-synthetic conversion from the precursors.

Wood from the yew is classified as a closed-pore softwood, similar to cedar and pine. Easy to work, yew is among the hardest of the softwoods; yet it possesses a remarkable elasticity, making it ideal for products that require springiness, such as bows.[42]

One of the world's oldest surviving wooden artifacts is a Clactonian yew[43] spear head, found in 1911 at Clacton-on-Sea, in Essex, UK. Known as the Clacton Spear, it is estimated to be over 400,000 years old.[44][45]

Yew is also associated with Wales and England because of the longbow, an early weapon of war developed in northern Europe, and as the English longbow the basis for a medieval tactical system. The oldest surviving yew longbow was found at Rotten Bottom in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. It has been given a calibrated radiocarbon date of 4040 BC to 3640 BC and is on display in the National Museum of Scotland. Yew is the wood of choice for longbow making; the heartwood is always on the inside of the bow with the sapwood on the outside. This makes most efficient use of their properties as heartwood is best in compression whilst sapwood is superior in tension. However, much yew is knotty and twisted, and therefore unsuitable for bowmaking; most trunks do not give good staves and even in a good trunk much wood has to be discarded.

There was a tradition of planting yew trees in churchyards throughout Britain and Ireland, among other reasons, as a resource for bows. "Ardchattan Priory whose yew trees, according to other accounts, were inspected by Robert the Bruce and cut to make at least some of the longbows used at the Battle of Bannockburn."[46]

The trade of yew wood to England for longbows was so robust that it depleted the stocks of good-quality, mature yew over a vast area. The first documented import of yew bowstaves to England was in 1294. In 1350 there was a serious shortage, and Henry IV of England ordered his royal bowyer to enter private land and cut yew and other woods. In 1423 the Polish king commanded protection of yews in order to cut exports, facing nearly complete destruction of local yew stock.[47] In 1470 compulsory archery practice was renewed, and hazel, ash, and laburnum were specifically allowed for practice bows. Supplies still proved insufficient, until by the Statute of Westminster in 1472, every ship coming to an English port had to bring four bowstaves for every tun.[48] Richard III of England increased this to ten for every tun. This stimulated a vast network of extraction and supply, which formed part of royal monopolies in southern Germany and Austria. In 1483, the price of bowstaves rose from two to eight pounds per hundred, and in 1510 the Venetians would only sell a hundred for sixteen pounds. In 1507 the Holy Roman Emperor asked the Duke of Bavaria to stop cutting yew, but the trade was profitable, and in 1532 the royal monopoly was granted for the usual quantity "if there are that many." In 1562, the Bavarian government sent a long plea to the Holy Roman Emperor asking him to stop the cutting of yew, and outlining the damage done to the forests by its selective extraction, which broke the canopy and allowed wind to destroy neighbouring trees. In 1568, despite a request from Saxony, no royal monopoly was granted because there was no yew to cut, and the next year Bavaria and Austria similarly failed to produce enough yew to justify a royal monopoly. Forestry records in this area in the 17th century do not mention yew, and it seems that no mature trees were to be had. The English tried to obtain supplies from the Baltic, but at this period bows were being replaced by guns in any case.[49]

Today European yew is widely used in landscaping and ornamental horticulture. Due to its dense, dark green, mature foliage, and its tolerance of even very severe pruning, it is used especially for formal hedges and topiary. Its relatively slow growth rate means that in such situations it needs to be clipped only once per year (in late summer).

Well over 200 cultivars of T. baccata have been named. The most popular of these are the Irish yew (T. baccata 'Fastigiata'), a fastigiate cultivar of the European yew selected from two trees found growing in Ireland, and the several cultivars with yellow leaves, collectively known as "golden yew".[7][10] In some locations, e.g. when hemmed in by buildings or other trees, an Irish yew can reach 20 feet in height without exceeding 2 feet in diameter at its thickest point, although with age many Irish yews assume a fat cigar shape rather than being truly columnar.

The following cultivars have gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit:-

European yew will tolerate growing in a wide range of soils and situations, including shallow chalk soils and shade,[58] although in deep shade its foliage may be less dense. However it cannot tolerate waterlogging, and in poorly-draining situations is liable to succumb to the root-rotting pathogen Phytophthora cinnamomi.

In Europe, Taxus baccata grows naturally north to Molde in southern Norway, but it is used in gardens further north. It is also popular as a bonsai in many parts of Europe and makes a handsome small- to large-sized bonsai.[59]

In England, yew has historically been sometimes associated with privies, possibly because the smell of the plant keeps insects away.[60]

The late Robert Lundberg, a noted luthier who performed extensive research on historical lute-making methodology, states in his 2002 book Historical Lute Construction that yew was historically a prized wood for lute construction. European legislation establishing use limits and requirements for yew limited supplies available to luthiers, but it was apparently as prized among medieval, renaissance, and baroque lute builders as Brazilian rosewood is among contemporary guitar-makers for its quality of sound and beauty.

Clippings from ancient specimens in the UK, including the Fortingall Yew, were taken to the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh to form a mile-long hedge. The purpose of this "Yew Conservation Hedge Project" is to maintain the DNA of Taxus baccata. The species is threatened by felling, partly due to rising demand from pharmaceutical companies, and disease.[61]

Another conservation programme was run in Catalonia in the early 2010s, by the Forest Sciences Centre of Catalonia (CTFC), in order to protect genetically endemic yew populations, and preserve them from overgrazing and forest fires.[62] In the framework of this programme, the 4th International Yew Conference was organised in the Poblet Monastery in 2014, which proceedings are available.

There has also been a conservation programme in northern Portugal.

Holistic Medicine is a form of healing that considers the whole person body, mind, spirit, and emotions in the quest for optimal health and wellness. According to the holistic medicine philosophy, one can achieve optimal health the primary goal of holistic medicine practice by gaining proper balance in life.

Holistic medicine practitioners believe that the whole person is made up of interdependent parts and if one part is not working properly, all the other parts will be affected. In this way, if people have imbalances (physical, emotional, or spiritual) in their lives, it can negatively affect their overall health. A holistic doctor will use all forms of health care, from conventional medication to alternative therapies, to bring about optimal health and wellness.

So when a person suffering from migraine headaches pays a visit to a holistic doctor, instead of walking out solely with medications, the doctor will likely take a look at all the potential factors that may be causing the persons headaches, such as other health problems, diet and sleep habits, stress and personal problems. The treatment plan may involve traditional or natural medicines to relieve symptoms, but also lifestyle modifications to help prevent the headaches from recurring.

We use a variety of treatment techniques to help our patients take responsibility for their own well-being and achieve optimal health. These may include:

Holistic Health – Herbal Medicine, Massage, and More

Posted: at 3:44 am

As more and more people seek a more comprehensive and hands-on approach to health care, holistic health has become increasingly popular over the years. Whether theyre soothing back pain with massage, fending off colds with dietary supplements, or taking up meditation to tame anxiety, about 30 percent of American adults now use some form of alternative medicine, according to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH).

Holistic health is generally defined as medical treatments that are not part of mainstream medicine. However, many people use alternative treatments alongside conventional care. This practice is typically referred to as complementary medicine.

Despite existing outside of mainstream medicine, a great deal of alternative treatments have a long history of use throughout the world. In fact, certain treatments are a cornerstone of traditional medical systems.

For instance, acupuncture is a key element of traditional Chinese medicine, while herbal remedies are a mainstay of ayurveda (the traditional medicine of India).

There are countless reasons why people use alternative treatments to enhance their health. For example, people with pain-causing conditions like arthritis sometimes rely on alternative treatments to reduce their use of painkillers. Others use alternative treatments for help in managing conditions that are often difficult to treat, such as depression. And in many cases, people add holistic treatments to their daily routine in order to improve their energy, promote sounder sleep, lift their mood, and alleviate everyday stress.

Although some forms of holistic medicine are touted for the treatment of cancer, theres very little scientific support for such claims. Still, research suggests that some alternative treatments (such as acupuncture and massage) may benefit people with cancer by easing the side effects associated with cancer therapies like radiation and chemotherapy.

Alternative treatments vary greatly in approach, from professionally administered therapies like chiropractic to do-it-yourself techniques like meditation. Read on to learn more about todays most commonly used holistic treatments.

A needle-based therapy used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is thought to support healing by stimulating the bodys flow of vital energy (also known as chi). When performing acupuncture, practitioners insert very thin needles into specific points on the body. According to the principles of traditional Chinese medicine, these points are located along invisible lines of energy flow (called meridians), which connect our organs with other parts of our body.

One of the most widely studied alternative treatments available, acupuncture has been found to aid in the treatment of several types of pain (including low back pain, neck pain, osteoarthritis-related pain, and chronic pain). Theres also some evidence that acupuncture may help reduce the frequency of tension headaches and prevent migraines.

Aromatherapy involves inhaling the scent of essential oils extracted from specific plants, such as lavender and rosemary. Its thought that breathing in these aromas can influence your health in part by affecting certain brain chemicals.

While few clinical trials have tested the health effects of aromatherapy, some studies have found that this approach may help to alleviate stress and relieve common health troubles like menstrual pain and insomnia.

With a focus on the relationship between your bodys structure and its functioning, chiropractic centers on manual manipulation of the spine and other parts of your body. Typically referred to as adjustments, these manipulations aim to correct alignment problems and, in turn, promote recovery from a range of health conditions.

Often used in the treatment of pain-related health problems (including back pain, headaches, and even fibromyalgia), chiropractic may also be helpful in controlling conditions like asthma and insomnia.

Perhaps the most frequently used type of holisitic treatment, supplements encompass a wide variety of products, including herbs, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, probiotics, and natural substances such as fish oil. The most extensively studied supplements include fish oil (found to improve heart health) and vitamin D (shown to strengthen bones).

Not only a popular spa treatment, massage therapy can have a powerful impact on your physical and mental health. Indeed, studies have determined that undergoing massage can help treat back pain, arthritis, tension headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, anxiety, depression, and a host of other health problems.

An alternative treatment practiced for thousands of years, massage includes such approaches as Swedish massage (which involves long strokes, kneading, and deep circular movements), deep tissue massage, shiatsu (which focuses on applying pressure to the same bodily points stimulated in acupuncture), and other popular massage styles.

With their well-established ability to reduce stress, mind-body techniques like meditation, yoga, progressive muscle relaxation, tai chi, and guided imagery may provide a wealth of health benefits. When introduced into your health routine, such techniques may help stave off stress-related issues such as high blood pressure.

As more and more research shows a strong link between stress and pain, theres also some evidence that some mind-body techniques may benefit people with pain-causing conditions. To that end, studies have indicated that tai chi may help lessen arthritis pain, while meditation may provide headache relief.

Another class of do-it-yourself holistic treatments, nutritional therapies involve tailoring your diet to achieve specific benefits or control chronic conditions. This includes the growing trend of juicing to boost health and enhance energy.

Other examples of widely practiced nutritional therapies: drinking green tea to strengthen the immune system, eliminating dairy and/or sugar to reduce acne, and following an anti-inflammatory diet to manage conditions like arthritis.

Because few alternative treatments have been extensively studied, little is known about the safety of these treatments. In order to minimize the health risks of alternative treatments, its important to talk to your doctor before adding such treatments to your health regimen.

Its also important to remember that natural doesnt necessarily mean safe. For example, many herbal or nutritional supplements can trigger adverse effects, as well as interact with medications or other natural remedies.

In addition, it should be noted that using alternative treatments in place of physician-prescribed therapy may have serious consequences and significantly harm your health.

When used safely and carefully, many alternative treatments can make a wonderful addition to your health care. Along with discussing alternative treatments with your doctor, make sure to do your homework by reading up on the latest research on your alternative treatment of interest (including its possible risks).

Your doctor can also guide you in finding a qualified practitioner, an essential element in reaping the greatest benefit from whichever alternative treatment you choose.

Holistic Medicine vs. HomeopathyIs There a Difference …

Posted: at 3:44 am

Have you ever wondered what is the difference between holistic medicine and homeopathy? Look no further, because we have answers for you! The following article is brought to you courtesy of the National Center for Homeopathy.

Holistic Medicine and Homeopathy are vague, confusing medical terms that are often used interchangeably. But in reality, they are related, but distinctly different modalities.

Holistic medicine is an umbrella term used to describe a variety of therapies that attempt to treat the patient as a whole person. That is, instead of treating an illness, as you would in traditional Western medicine, holistic medicine looks at an individuals overall physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional well-being before recommending treatment.

A practitioner with a holistic approach treats the symptoms of illness as well as looking for the underlying cause of the illness. Holistic medicine also attempts to prevent illness by placing a greater emphasis on optimizing health the bodys natural state is one of health. An illness or disease is viewed as an imbalance in the bodys systems. Holistic therapies tend to emphasize proper nutrition and avoidance of substancessuch as chemicalsthat pollute the body.

There are no limits to the range of diseases and disorders that can be treated in a holistic way, as the principle of holistic healing is to balance the body, mind, spirit, and emotions so that the persons whole being functions smoothly. When an individual seeks holistic treatment for a particular illness or condition, other health problems improve without direct treatment, due to improvement in the performance of the immune system, which is one of the goals of holistic medicine.

Homeopathy is a type of holistic medicine, but has a distinctly unique approach compared to other types of holistic medicine, like naturopathic medicine or traditional Chinese medicine (eg. Acupuncture).

Specifically, homeopathy is a safe, gentle, and natural system of healing that works with your body to relieve symptoms, restore itself, and improve your overall health. It is extremely safe to use, even with very small children and pets, has none of the side effects of many traditional medications, is very affordable, is made from natural substances, and is FDA regulated.

Homeopathic medicines known as remedies are made from natural sources (e.g., plants, minerals), and are environmentally friendly and cruelty free. Most are available over the counter in grocery stores, drug stores, health food stores, homeopathic pharmacies, and online. They are also extremely affordable. Homeopathic remedies, when used as directed, are completely safe for everyone including pregnant and nursing women, infants, children, and adults. They are given in such small doses that they dont cause side effects.

Homeopathy is used to treat acute illnesses, like colds, ear infections, migraines, and sore throats, as well as chronic conditions, like asthma, depression, autism, and arthritis.

Anyone can learn to treat simple conditions safely at home using homeopathy, but a professional should treat serious or life-threatening conditions.

This dog enjoys its massage.

Holistic medicine, by its very nature, is humane to the core. The techniques used in holistic medicine are gentle, minimally invasive, and incorporate patient well-being and stress reduction. Holistic thinking is centered on love, empathy, and respect.

In treating an animal, a holistic veterinarian will determine the best combination of both conventional and alternative (or complementary) therapies for a given individual. This mixture of healing arts and skills is as natural as life itself. Therein lies the very essence of the word (w)holistic. It means taking in the whole picture of the patientthe environment, the disease pattern, the relationship of pet with ownerand developing a treatment protocol using a wide range of therapies for healing the patient. The holistic practitioner is interested not only in a medical history, but also genetics, nutrition, environment, family relationships, stress levels, and other factors.

Many patients present in a state of disease. At this point the holistic challenge lies in the question why? A simple-appearing symptom may have several layers of causation. When one area of the body is ill, it can manifest in many different ways. Only when the true cause of the ailment has been found is there the possibility for a lasting recovery.

Through a series of analytic observations and appropriate testing, the goal becomes finding the true root source of the pathology. It is at this point that the most efficacious, least invasive, least expensive, and least harmful path to cure is selected.

Treating a dogs mouth with laser therapy.

In many acute situations, treatment may involve aspects of surgery and drug therapy from conventional Western technology, along with alternative techniques to provide a complementary whole. This form of treatment has great value for severe trauma and certain infections.

Once the symptoms have been treated, the task is not complete until the underlying disease patterns have been redirected. The patient, as well as the client, will be guided to a new level of health. The wholeness inherent in the scope of holistic veterinary medicine nurtures all aspects of an animals well-being, resulting in lasting physical, mental, and emotional health.

Alzheimer’s Disease: The 7 Stages of the Disease

Posted: July 23, 2018 at 6:42 pm

In this Article In this Article In this Article

You can help support your loved one with Alzheimer's by learning more about how the condition unfolds.

The stages don't always fall into neat boxes, and the symptoms might vary -- but they can be a guide and help you plan for your friend or relative's care.

When your loved one is in this early phase, he won't have any symptoms that you can spot. Only a PET scan, an imaging test that shows how the brain is working, can reveal whether he's got Alzheimer's.

As he moves into the next 6 stages, your friend or relative with Alzheimer's will see more and more changes in his thinking and reasoning.

You still might not notice anything amiss in your loved one's behavior, but he may be picking up on small differences, things that even a doctor doesn't catch. This could include forgetting a word or misplacing objects.

At this stage, subtle symptoms of Alzheimer's don't interfere with his ability to work or live independently.

Keep in mind that these symptoms might not be Alzheimer's at all, but simply normal changes from aging.

It's at this point that you start to notice changes in your loved one's thinking and reasoning, such as:

You can help by being your loved one's "memory" for him, making sure he pays bills and gets to appointments on time. You can also suggest he ease stress by retiring from work and putting his legal and financial affairs in order.

During this period, the problems in thinking and reasoning that you noticed in stage 3 get more obvious, and new issues appear. Your friend or family member might:

You can help with everyday chores and his safety. Make sure he isn't driving anymore, and that someone isn't trying to take advantage of him financially.

Your loved one might start to lose track of where he is and what time it is. He might have trouble remembering his address, phone number, or where he went to school. He could get confused about what kind of clothes to wear for the day or season.

You can help by laying out his clothing in the morning. It can help him dress by himself and keep a sense of independence.

If he repeats the same question, answer with an even, reassuring voice. He might be asking the question less to get an answer and more to just know you're there.

Even if your loved one can't remember facts and details, he might still be able to tell a story. Invite him to use his imagination at those times.

As Alzheimer's progresses, your loved one might recognize faces but forget names. He might also mistake a person for someone else, for instance, thinking his wife is his mother. Delusions might a set in, such as thinking he needs to go to work even though he no longer has a job.

You might need to help him go to the bathroom.

It might be hard to talk, but you can still connect with him through the senses. Many people with Alzheimer's love hearing music, being read to, or looking over old photos.

Many basic abilities in a person with Alzheimer's, such as eating, walking, and sitting up, fade during this period. You can stay involved by feeding your loved one with soft, easy-to-swallow food, helping him use a spoon, and making sure he drinks. This is important, as many people at this stage can no longer tell when they're thirsty.

Fitness was launched in 1992,[3] and was acquired by the Meredith Corporation from Bertelsmann's Gruner + Jahr in 2005.[4] In 2005, Fitness also launched its web presence, giving readers separate online resources for fitness and health tips alongside the magazine's monthly editorial content.[5] Betty Wong became Editor-in-Chief in September 2008, incorporating several changes to the magazine, creating several new columns and features.[2][6] In 2009, Fitness posted significant ad page gains according to the Publishers Information Bureau, increasing by 18.4% when overall magazine publishers' counts were down 27.9% industry-wide.[2][7] It was recognized for several awards, having been awarded "Most Improved Publication" and best "How-To/Instructional" feature in minOnline's Editorial and Design Awards.[8]

On January 28, 2015, it was reported that Meredith Corp. would acquire Shape Magazine which would be merged with Fitness magazine in May 2015.[9] The Fitness website would continue to operate.[10][11]

Fitness editorial content centers largely on exercise, nutrition, health, and beauty. Fitness also conducts several real-world fitness and health-themed events to promote its brand and raise money for charity, including the Mind, Body, Spirit Games and a half-marathon in conjunction with fellow Meredith publication More magazine.[2][12][13]

Anti-Ageing Machine: More-ATP Mitochondrial Theory of …

Posted: July 12, 2018 at 12:44 pm

I offer video evidence of Anti-Aging Machines reverse-aging effect with Gizmo a 16 year old Yorkie-Maltese (17 y.o. 14 Sept 11) that had been on EP for 9.5 years who barked at and played with her food like a puppy. At 8 years old she had cloudy cornea that comes in old dogs. After 3 years of EP (and up to her death at 2 weeks shy of 18 y.o.) her eyes were nearly clear-black. The videos include the author at 53 y.o. explaining some of the dramatic effects of long-term nightly use since the first prototype May 2002. Were trying to attain video evidence of an 18 year old cat on EarthPulse 4 years every night sleeping next to its master. The owner says hes had to take the cat toys down from the attic because the cat is clawing the furniture again. People think shes 5 years old, where at 12 years old she was starting to get a bit slow.

UPDATE on Gizmo: Gizmo nearly died March 2011 as a result of a cortisone-antibiotic shot given by the veterinarian that resulted in kidney failure with subsequent congestive heart failure. After 3 weeks of IV therapy she was sent home with a 25% chance of survival with kidney function that had not been restored above 35%. 17 y.o. video of her walking briskly on the beach in Florida shows a hump in her back she didnt have in last years video (where a reasonable person would swear she was between 4 and 5 years old.

Corticosteroid-Associated Congestive Heart Failure in 12 Cats by Stephanie A. Smith, DVM, MS, DACVIM (Internal Medicine), Anthony H. Tobias, BVSc, PhD, DACVIM (Cardiology), Deborah M. Fine, DVM, MS, DACVIM (Cardiology), Kristin A. Jacob, DVM, DACVIM (Cardiology) & Trasida Ployngam, DVM.

While the science of longevity and anti-aging fans world-wide are searching for the next miracle phytochemical, or nutricutical anti-aging miracle-molecule, or stem cell therapy, or the safest, most-affordable injectable HGH or hormone replacement therapy, youve just stumbled across a very simple Fountain of Youth right here.

When the solution is simple, God is answering.~ Albert Einstein ~

Anti-Aging Machines More-ATP theory is based upon the simple preposition that if one were able to sustain the body longer on a fixed amount of oxygen (one full inhale), then body would be extracting more usable energy out of that breath of air with less oxidative waste. It is well established that reducing oxidative stress can slow aging. Enhanced cell respiration is the ONLY plausible explanation for the amount of change we see in the RBH-test (20% to 100% increase in 90 days).

Here I provide a cohesive method to radically extend healthy human and animal lifespan & explain precisely why 5 decades of peer reviewed pulsed electromagnetic field research (utilizing frequencies between 1 Hz and 15 Hz) have shown such reliable / repeatable healing and regenerative effects with no negative side-effects. By default, More-ATP provides a simple explanation for much of the documented effect of repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS / rTMS) as it is nearly always applied at 1 Hz 20 Hz.

This range of frequencies provide roughly the same effect regardless of whether the stimulation is magnetic or electric in nature. However this paper will deal with pulsed electromagnetic fields as they are easier to control and since electric currents limit effectiveness by following the path of least resistance, such that homogeneous and systemic electrical stimulation of mitochondria is virtually impossible.

The More-ATP preposition remains cohesive at frequencies as low as 1-2 Hz and as high as 20 Hz, regardless of tissue type (even in plants), and particularly where tissue is damaged or debilitated and suffering underlying mitochondrial dysfunction; which I propose is the rule rather than exception in most disorders.

The FDA has refused approvals for novel uses of pulsed electromagnetic fields hiding behind heretofore vague explanations to FDA regarding how the efficacy is achieved. For instance raising cell membrane potential. Raising cell membrane potential is the end result of raising mitochondrial performance!

In high frequency therapeutics however, the raised cell membrane potential is unexplainable but for some Alternative Cellular Energy (ACE) pathway, whereby cells pick up energy by some undisclosed mechanism as the pulses pass through the cells. This paper rectifies the dilemma by making it relatively easy to explain to the FDA in the minutest detail (at the mitochondrial level) how PEMF stimulation between 1 Hz and 20 Hz upregulate cell mitochondria and raises cell membrane potential organically, from within. More-ATP relies on organically produced excess ATP. The body heals itself as a result of this flood of energy.

This alone should kick-open the door to many new PEMF approvals by FDA and similar agencies worldwide should the patent holders of the several effective devices in this frequency range be wise enough to study this information and use it. Although these several patented technologies are effective, none are designed for long duration sleep-enhancement sessions. Shorter sessions during the daytime with any of these will never cumulatively have the same effect as regular, night-long sessions nor will it have a statistically significant anti-aging effect as duration of stimulation is simply not long enough. It took 8 hours stimulation per day for 30 days to peak the level of enzymes responsible for oxygen metabolism, 24 hours per day for 21 days for NASA to change DNA signature; yet only minutes for 10 Hz to triple nerve synapse energy.

Ive chosen the name of this 10 Hz stimulation mechanism More-ATP because nearly all the effects of PEMF at this frequency range are due very simply to excess production of organic ATP that is synthesized naturally in the cell mitochondria via the cell respiration process albeit at amplified or accelerated levels.

It must be so efficient, that NASA scientist Goodwin (see below) found over 175 Genes associated with cell maturity switched -OFF- and 150 genes associated with cell development switched -ON-. This is not theory at all, but applied evidence based science as data has been collected on hundreds of clients showing vast improvements in oxygen metabolism within 7 days.

We test oxygen metabolism through a very low-tech, yet accurate and objective means called the resting-breath-hold (RBH) test. Free divers call it the static breath-hold. Very simply, it is how long you can hold your breath at rest;.providing a very reliable objective method to measure oxygen consumption rates. Draw oxygen from the blood slower and saturated blood oxygen (SAO2) goes up.

Weve seen SAO2 go up 3% over 3 days in a 68 year old woman and 5% in a 55 year old distance runner living at 6000 feet altitude who had never previously achieved 99% SAO2 at that altitude. Holding breath longer at rest, means your mitochondria are burning the O2 contained in that breath more efficiently than it had previously.

As the breath-hold goes up, cellular energy is going up in (at least) linear fashion. One could arguably attain the same effect through years of meditation, yoga or practice; albeit with infinitely more effort. This takes none. An interesting and important point is this effect is amplified under-load. Two Olympic swimmers with 100% baseline SAO2 increased their RBH test by 19% & 20% respectively yet swam 49% and 50% further underwater on one breath. Three years ago one of these swimmer went undefeated during FINA World Cup at 3 distances (50M, 100M, 200M) in 7 cities. That is 21 Gold medals out of 21 races.

He was nearing retirement age and only one of two swimmers to ever complete the World Cup undefeated. He almost retired due to lost performance prior to use of EP in 2006. I should also add here that he never competed in 200M distance since college and only began training for it at my suggestion in pre-season training the year he went 21:21 in FINA World Tour Championships.

Power lifters see between 10% and 20% peak strength (in range of anabolic steroids) w/no weight gain in a matter of weeks. See our page on Athletic Performance Enhancement via Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields.

Very simply, exposure to 10 Hz (or close enough; between 5 and 15 Hz) has an immediate and direct effect on the mitochondria as demonstrated in the studies immediately following. While 5 Hz and 15 Hz have been found to produce DOUBLE the rates of tissue regeneration, 10 Hz produced tissue regeneration at FOUR times baseline according to NASA. At power frequency (50-60 Hz) and higher, you are crippling your mitochondria. At 20 Hz or more, stress hormones are produced so better to not use PEMF therapies under influence of higher than 15 Hz for prolonged periods. The Anti-Aging-Product known as Sleep on Command operates at 14.1 Hz maximum frequency in ALERT-MODE or during wake-up phase from 6 of its programs.

Key 10 Hz Pulsed Magnetic Anti-Aging Research:In 1989 David Hood found chronic 10 Hz stimulation (30+ days 10 hours per day) TRIPLED two CRITICAL enzymes used during final stages of cell respiration. Citrate-synthase the regulator of the Krebs cycle and cytochrome-c-oxidase, the last enzyme in the electron transport chain. Hood concluded this was due to similarly increased mitochondrial ribonucleic acid (mtRNA). Hoods finding is consistent with our finding of improved oxygen use in every one of our satisfied clients. Testing systemic oxygen consumption via RBH testsince 2005 we have found routine improvements in more than 94% of our clients (96% since 2008 after last technical upgrade).Since these enzymes control critical steps in oxygen metabolism it would make sense that oxygen molecules are being utilized more efficiently.

In 2003(nearly a year AFTER EarthPulse began commercial sales utilizing DC pulsed electromagnetic field @ 9.6 Hz)NASA-Goodwinfound a10 Hzpulsed electromagnetic field caused neural tissue regeneration @ 4x baselinew/ improved 3-D orientation(pg 17); while causing cellular DNA torevert from mature to developmental (more than 175 maturation genes switched -OFF- and 150 developmental genes switched -ON- pgs.15-18). The implications on longevity are staggering!

NASA didnt dig deep enough to explain why cell regeneration QUADRUPLED under 10 Hz pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) or why the genetic effects occurred ONLY at 10 Hz pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF). This effect can only be due to immense amounts of energy being generated by the cell. See Tong immediately below. Very plainly the cell is detoxified with all this extra energy and literally tricked into believing it is young again. It is not outside the realm of possibility that it will be found genetic and chromosomal repair, and lengthening of telomere is accomplished also.

In 2007 James Tong DOUBLED mitochondrial density at nerve synapse junctions but TRIPLED nerve synapse energy utilizing 10 Hz stimulation. These synergistic changes took only 5 minutes to manifest. It is prudent to consider Tong first stimulated at 1/2 Hz for just two minutes and both mitochondrial density and nerve junction energy parameters fell by 20%. However within 5 minutes at 10 Hz both measurements soared and remained static at increased levels even after subjected to 1/2 Hz again at end of the study.

In the chart linked above, compare mitochondrial DENSITY in unpotentiated mitochondria (white circles) w/ 10 Hz potentiated mitochondria (black circles); compare TOTAL ENERGY at synapse junction unpotentiated (white circles) w/ 10 Hz potentiated (black circles). Mitochondrial density change = 2x+ & total Synapse Energy change = 3x+ so each mitochondria increased its energy production by nearly 50% within 5 minutes. Also keep in mind that Hoods samples took 30 days, 8 hours per day 10 Hz stimulation to peak enzyme production and NASA took 17-21 days; yet we find in human subjects improvement in resting-breath-hold (RBH) test takes YEARS to peak even if measured just once every year or two (where no practice can be associated with its rise).

We have relied upon 9.6 Hz in our Sleep on Command pulsed-magnetic sleep device since 2001 because it was reported (in an obscure journal circa 1972) by Bob Beck to emanate from the molten core. It rises perpendicular to the horizon (to be distinguished from Schumann resonance which flows parallel to horizon). Beck discovered this 9.6 Hz resonation in the early to mid 1970s by driving metal stakes 20 feet into the earth, attaching an amplifier and measuring the frequency of the signal. Although Beck continually worked on the BT (Brain Tuner) series for 20 years until his death, he neglected to mention that experiment and tuned his BT to Schumann 7.83 Hz.

Historically speaking, if we were bedded-down on the ground every night w/ no radio frequency microwave telecommunication we would be entrained predominantly by the naturally occurring 9.6 Hz and what probably was a well designed biological law on the order of biblical creator or evolutionary design depending on your viewpoint; explaining why 10 Hz stimulation works as well as it does. Probably why it is so widely known that people sleep well on camping trips too. It is NOT the fresh air and exercise.

While our neurological system is known to be paced by the Schumann waves it is clear that the mitochondria are tuned by the Earths core resonance at or around 9.6 Hz; particularly while lying horizontal and preferably when sleeping in contact with the ground. This is the primary reason camping is known to produce such remarkable sleep and why earthing technologies are gaining popularity. But, EarthPulse is earthing on steroids!

In Gizmos Summer 2010 video clip (where shes 80+ human years old) she moves as fast and quick as a 5 year old dog. Her mind state is definitely puppy-like. Shes currently on the device for more than 1/2 her lifetime. During the day she spends hours in her favorite perch (on the top of the couch arm-rest) where she sleeps for hours (1/2 inch above the 200 G inductor at 9.6 Hz) plus nighttime exposure at under 1 Gauss with the inductor under her masters mattress. She still stalks her food like a puppy; and if you turn up the volume in the 8 second video #2, youll hear her digging her nails DEEP into the carpet. No arthritis or joint pain in her whatsoever. Please take the time to check out some of the other life changing videos while at our YouTube channel.

In 2001 at 43 years old I built my first device for a fellow with Parkinsons disease. I discovered the sleep effect the very first afternoon it was completed. I quickly found that regular nighttime use of the EarthPulse DC pulsed electromagnetic fields at 9.6 Hz quickly and reliably enhanced sleep and daytime mental & physical performance. Recovery even from old sports injuries was phenomenal. 12 years later my destroyed left rotator cuff is still 99% perfect.

My left rotator cuff (suffered 22 dislocations during 14 years 1986-2001) became completely resolved sleeping within the EarthPulse field in 3 months. Previously I nearly quit surfing in 1999 as i could barely paddle and residual sharp pain for 3 days after a surf-session was unbearable; by 2002 I was barely able to swing nor grip a golf club due to shoulder, and numbness and weakness in the corresponding left hand. I stayed in shape with a bowflex and worked the bad shoulder constantly with low resistance and high reps. Lots of joint formula. Within days of my first prototype at 9.6 Hz during the nighttime, the numbness in my fingertips was resolved, ringing dull pain down the arm resolved in 3 weeks; and by month 3 for the most part the shoulder was back to normal. No more popping, grinding, snapping sounds.

Currently my grip strength is comparable to my right-hand. I can surf 3 hours per day for 4-5 days in succession with no pain or sunburn (3 day limit in my 20s); hit 300 golf balls at the range or walk 36 holes of golf. I smoke a pack of natural tobacco non filtered cigarettes per day (sometimes more), and dont surf or play golf nearly as much as Id like to. My SAO2 is 99%, I can hold my breath for 2:30 seconds, swim 50 meters under water (diving off one end) and mostly Im chained to this desk much of the time.

For the record it is advisable to consume a good quality joint supplement during these rehabilitative connective tissue goals as regenerating these tissues need their nutritional constituent for maximum effect (I personally recommend GLC2000 for joints and BoneUp for bone mass increase). I took joint formulas since 1990 but still my shoulder eventually failed (continued joint formula for a couple of years, and now take nothing but Organic Sulfur and my shoulder is better than its been since the first accident, not even maintenance doses of joint formulas are use. My right ankle and knee that where problems almost every morning (H.S. pole vaulting accident) completely resolved (right ankle in days, right knee over several years). I used to have to pop my right knee several times per day since college days, less and less thoughout the first 7 years of nightly EP use, up until about 5 years ago when that necessity passed. Strength and stamina gains are easily explained by my more-ATP proposition, as are recovery / regeneration effects. So are reported elevation of hormone levels by clients who have checked them (mitochondria reside in your endocrine tissues as well).

It took 7 full years for my RBH to double with no effort (7 ears for the knee to fully resolve) no practice or aerobic physical conditioning but for sporadic surfing and rounds of golf. It is my propositon that 9.6 Hz every night could have resulted in taking 7 full years for a complete turnover of cells in the body, that older cells had revived and lingered for years.

Earthpulse.netspulsed magnetic field therapy bibliographies contain several hundred peer reviewed pulsed electromagnetic therapy study abstracts spanning nearly 6 decades, organized by disorder, most linked directly to the U.S. National Institutes of Health & National Libraries of Medicine. You will find many, if not most of the successful pulsed electromagnetic therapy research used frequencies under 20 Hz.

Robert O. Becker MD proved optimum cellular repair at stimulation periods 8 hours ON / 8 hours OFF -; using minute, microampere DC electric current. He regrew a human finger tip from the 1st knuckle with tactile sensation, fingerprint, nail and nail-bed fully intact.

His mouth to my ears The cell can only absorb so-much energy at a time and create only-so-much change over 24 hours. Your 8 hours during the nighttime is the next best thing. This being the classic example of ACE pathway (alternative cellular energy), and the one explanation that the FDA finds inadequate enough to HIDE behind, even in the case of fresh fracture healing at 200% 300% faster rate, spinal cord repair or stroke rehabilitation.

At the time I had been unable to discuss mitochondrial effects with Bob as I hadnt been aware of the NASA research until late 2005 and the Tong and Hood studies until late 2008, and although feeling better winded I had not noticed my RBH increase as I had not checked it for some years. My several conversations with Bob prior to his death were relegated to ACE pathways discussion as I was yet unable to discuss mitochondrial stimulation. Other topics of our conversations were DC microcurrents with or without conductive silver nylon fabrics; the electrochemical treatment of cancer tumors using silver electrodes (rather than tungsten or platinum); and of course EarthPulse PEMF entrainment for sleep. We did discuss the incrontravertable 10 Hz pattern in the peer reviewed research, the fact his long-time friend (and one-time student) Andrew Marino, PhD had done research with 10 Hz and the discovery of the 9.6 Hz resonance discovered by Bob C. Beck. However without knowledge of the NASA, Tong or Hood studies, I was unable to discuss these effects with Becker.

This link to Becker & Marinos Electromagnetism and Life(takes a bit of time for the pdf to load so be patient)is probably the most well documented essay in existence on the detrimental effects of power and microwave telecommunications frequencies as well as some of the earlier works using electric and magnetic stimulation techniques. Far, far ahead of their time, but very relevant today.

The end effect of night long sessions with enhanced ATP production and reduced oxidative stress allow cells to detoxify and repair over weeks and months to become healthy normal functioning cells again. Old injuries heal remarkably well during this several months process. Cells that are healthy now have extended life-time. Over time, the technique literally stops aging, reverses it for perhaps as much as a decade; once repair process is complete and normal aging process resumes, it does so at much slower cell turnover rate.

Not just age reversal on one current cell generation but over weeks and months you realize those new cells then went on to produce new cells next to it and so on, in attempt to reverse all age related degeneration. Over time you realize old nagging problems like knees or hips or shoulders havent been bothering nearly as bad as before, knees, hips, lower back, shoulders and neck feel looser, digestion is better, energy levels much higher and more stable, and you begin to feel in most cases healthier than ever in lifetime. Wind under-load changes noticeably going-up steps or in athletic endeavors within the first week or two. Age related dis-repair takes several months or more to improve as much as possible while oxygen metabolism can improve apparently over years. Once that process is complete, it then freezes user in that condition for proportionately as long as cell turnover rate is slowed (barring any health catastrophes).

The father of electromedicine and electrochemically induced cellular regeneration Dr. Robert O. Becker with Paul Becker developer of the EarthPulse after testing the Sleep on Command Pulsed DC Magnetic Stimulation System in August 2004; Paul, youve certainly come up with something that makes me sleep ~ Robert O. Becker the Father of Electromedicine.

After 9 years of sleeping nightly in RECOVER-MODE 9.6 HZ program most nights results in distinct anabolic effects. few days prior to turning 54 after 9 years of EarthPulse very weak nighttime PEMF and no nutritional supplementation butorganic sulphur.

I was training prior to this photo after a 2 year long multi year layoff from BowFlex system id had since 1996; usinga elasticresistance band type training system called Body by Jake Tower 200 (I highly recommend it). I was 45 days into a 15 minutes per day 6 days per week 100 125 reps per day spread over 4 body parts. One movementpalm down pull-ups done on an Iron Gym (also a door apparatus). Both break down and fit into luggage and travel everywhere (like my EarthPulse, Sota.com colloidal silver maker, electric stim & magnetic pulser units). The Lazy Mans way to fitness.

I always say, practice what you preach. Try and find another PEMF manufacture thats not grey haired, and / or overweight at 50+ and send us a link if you can find one. The equation is simple, ahealthy diet, some exercise and sleeping on the EP and youre sure to slow your ageing to a crawl

Check this paper particularly the comment by Aubrie de Grey about reduced ROS production and its affect on cell longevity. See this study by YH Wei et al. and then go back to the 1989 David Hood study where enzyme activity responsible for oxygen molecule metabolism increased 3 fold (by 10 hrs per day for 35 days stimulation). It would figure there would be less electron (oxygen) leakage when there are 3xs more enzyme responsible for oxygen molecule metabolism.

In summary: moreATP induces anti-aging effects through more organically produced ATP; resulting in upregulation of cell membrane potential; increased nerve synapse potential; improved ion transport; reduced ROS production; improved ROS neutralization; improved cell detoxification; reduced cell inflammation; thereby synergistically enhancing cell survival and longevity at the mitochondrial (potentially mtDNA) level.

As we age, our bodies begin to degenerate. The degeneration is often imperceptible until we begin to feel aches and pains in muscles and joints, see wrinkles in our skin and start feeling tired more easily. Aging is lifes most categorical degenerative disease, with years of wear and tear ultimately resulting in the loss of our ability to function at full capacity.

There are literally thousands of functions performed throughout the body at any given moment. Each function is aided by specific kinds of cells. For example, the regulation of emotions and the control of the bodys functions are managed by the communication between cells in the brain and the rest of the body, the skeletal structure is maintained by cells in our bones and motion is performed and controlled by muscle cells.Initially these cells have the incredible ability to proliferate in order to maintain their functions. As we age though, old cells die, other cells become damaged and the body losses its ability to replace them with new cells. None of us can avoid the deterioration of our cells that occurs as a part of the aging process. How we choose to live our lives are also contributing factors to how fast the process progresses, such as smoking, poor/unhealthy diet, and inactive lifestyles. There are also things we cannot control such as toxins in the environment and genetic predisposition to certain aging processes. It appears we may be fighting a losing battle when it comes to the aging process.However, it does not stop us from still wanting healthier and longer lives. So how can we maintain the health of our cell production thus reversing the effects of aging?

Stem cells specific function is to repair the body. They carry out this function by tuning into any cell that is required to heal or rebuild the damaged part of the body. For example, a stem cell can become a heart cell to repair damage in the heart or a skin cell to repair a tear in the skin. As such, stem cell therapy is used to replace old/tired cells with new ones capable of replicating and regenerating to maintain the healthy functioning of the body.A stem cell will take on the function of the necessary cell, multiply and fix the damaged area. If aging is the reduction in the efficiency of the bodys functions due to cell damage, then stem cell treatment can offset the aging process by reversing the damage and bringing our bodies back to functional capacity.Aging happens to all of us but the therapies to combat this are already available. Stem cell therapy can be the fountain of youth weve long searched for.Stem cell therapy can be the answer you need if you want to counter the adverse effects of aging so you can continue to look and feel young, and to improve your health.

The 10 Best Holistic Medicine Practitioners Near Me

Posted: July 11, 2018 at 5:44 am

Admittedly I was a bit skeptical before trying QHHT, not because I had any doubts about the wonderful woman who would be working on me , Doreen Devore, but because I am a yoga and meditation teacher and very holistic man and have tried seemingly every different treatment modality out there in order to find some semblance of inner peace , get off my own case, and establish increased solitude in my daily existence. I saw Doreen after a break-up of a quite long relationship and was still in the grieving phase. I am by nature inherently anxious, and thus am prescribed beta-blockers to keep my adrenalin from rising too often and Valium for panic-attacks. I also suffered from intermittent back pain as a result of a lumbar disc herniation over four years ago that still affected my alignment and had a negative impact on the quality and duration of my sleep. I regularly frequented chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, my shrink , Reiki healers and even know a couple of shamans who specialize in soul retrieval and do a lot of chanting and drumming in their healing sessions. None of this could have prepared me for the eye-opening, cathartic, trippy experience Doreen was about to guide me through. In advance I wrote down a clear list of questions I would like answered and Doreen told me she would do her best to commune with whatever powers that be to seek out the answers. I remember the session vaguely, but was in an almost trance-like state as Doreen took me back and spoke to me in past incarnations or lives and even looked ahead to my future , telling me that many of my goals would eventually be attained and how it would occur. She told me things about my life nobody had any business knowing or had been told before. She asked the higher-ups to lessen the pain in my back and my anxiety inducing OCD symptoms. Upon the cessation of our evening session I left in a blissful state , feeling very floaty yet contemplative , yet also revitalized. My ex-girlfriend no longer harbored any place in the forefront of my consciousness, my posture seemingly improved and my back pain diminished substantially and I slept like a baby all after night one. Since then I have been a more keen observer of opportunity in my life and have gotten four new yoga teaching jobs since I saw her less than one month ago. Furthermore, my moods are more stable as I'm less anxious, have decreased the dose of my beta-blockers and now just keep the Valium in my medicine cabinet in case of emergency. My yoga practice, sex life, day-to-day level of happiness and optimism regarding the future have all experienced a dramatic shift for the better. I can not explain the efficacy of this experience to enough people and all it required was a single session in Doreen's comforting hands. She is truly an expert at QHHT and someone I would highly recommend to friends and family alike. Thank you Doreen for helping me get many of the things that were ailing me in life back in order. One love. Om Shantih!
