Fasting-Microbiota-Diet Cancer-free Longevity Workshop

This power-point workshop reviews three of the latest breakthrough technologies that are redefining medicine in general and oncology in particular.

The first breakthrough regards therapeutic fasting and it’s impact on well-being, immunology and longevity. (1)

The second breakthrough deals with the impact of the microbiota and its microbiome on quality life extension and cancer reversals. (2)

And the last breakthrough this workshop deals with is nutrition’s role on the epigenetic expression of longevity, happiness and aging pathways. (3)

Immunotherapy, an Innovative Standard of Care whose Time has Come

Once the workshop students will better understand how safe, effective, actionable and cost-friendly therapeutic fasting, microbiota enhancement and optimal nutrition are, in particular with regard to most chronic diseases, burn-out syndromes and accelerated aging, we will study immunology from the view point of an extended longevity to 120 years old and more. In this perspective, new research has shown that one of the major drivers of chronic diseases, senescence and accelerated aging is  a dysfunctional immune system. Because a rejuvenated immune system can also help to remove senescent cells, (4) immunotherapy is one the twelve essential longevity pathways that need to be activated if we are to be serious about enjoying a healthy lifespan of 120 years  and beyond.

Since this year’s Nobel in Physiology (Medicine) went to scientists who have bio-chemically elucidated part of the immune system’s modus operandi, we will also compare holistic immunotherapy with genetic engineering immunotherapy, in particular with regard to CAR-T cell therapy (CAR = “chimeric antigen receptors”) and a few other conventional immune modulation techniques. In this perspective, we will delve into the most exciting recent cancer immunotherapy discoveries in light of the most compelling  healthy supercentenarian life-span findings.  (See the Institute’s blog on this topic).


Each workshopee will receive a detailed outline of the workshop. Each session will be open for question and answers.


This Workshop-seminar will wrap up with a few words on today’s innovative and conventional medical immune-enhancing technologies with regard to both cancer reversals and longevity optimization. Adapted and personalized nutrition, (5) gut diversity enhancement and therapeutic fasting have been for many centuries some of the best actionable self-care tools we have to boost the body’s “force vitale” (“Chi” in Chinese medicine) and immune system, thanks to which many key bio-physical pathways, bio-chemical processes and longevity genes can be activated, from general metabolism, deep sleep, muscle tone, weight management, cellular detoxification, autophagy, stem cell renewal, DNA repair mechanisms, Circadian harmonization, BDNF enhancement, mitochondrial biogenesis while positively modulating mTOR, IGF-1, AMPK,  NFR2, senescence, nutrient sensing, the immune system and inflammation, among many other pathways (hallmarks) and markers of aging.


Understanding the theory and practice of  different forms of nutritional, microbiota and fasting strategies to promote ongoing vitality, immune competence, longevity and optimize overall wellness.


One full day (6 hours): 149 dollars donation proposal. (6) An organic vegan longevity meal for lunch time may be included. Presently, this workshop organization is pending. The date will be posted as soon as possible. The funds will go to finish the Institute’s documentary on cancer.


This workshop will be presented by French biogerontologist and holistic oncologist Christian Joubert who is presently in the US researching and preparing a documentary and book on cancer and longevity while networking for an improved Europe-America alliance in health-care. (7)

Precision Notes

(1).  In this first section, we will examine different forms of fasting, from the classical three to five days hydric (water) fast, to the alternate “5-2” fast as well as other forms of intermittent, juice and extended fasts. In this perpective, we will also examine religious and traditional  fasts, French fasting modalities, including the partial fast as well as the innovative five days “Fasting Mimicking Diet” (FMD) that was invented by Italian biochemistry Professor Valter Longo. His five days FMD supply comes in a box and can be bought via his company called “Prolon”. It costs 300 dollars (Source). In this workshop, the workshopee will learn how make this diet. So that would be another saving of at least 270 dollars because the ingredits of the FMD are not costly and relatively easy to prepare.
(2). In this section, we will examine different gut medicine modalities and conditions thanks to which the microbiota can be selectively diversified and optimized for health and longevity, a few mechanisms of which are autophagy, hormonal and neuropeptide activation, stem cell expression and more. Concrete illustrations will be analyzed with regard to metabolic syndrome, obesity, diabetes, cancer, autoimmunity, weight management, cardio-vascularity and accelerated aging.
(3). Current nutritional clinical research suggests that health benefits are not solely dependent on what one eats, but also when one eats, when one stops eating, what accompanies what is ingested and how one breaks one’s fast. As an explosion of scientific information has emerged surrounding the benefits of different forms of fasting, gut restoration and nutrition, Happiness Medicine Institute Fasting Microbiota Diet Longevity will look at nutrition through the prism of the microbiota, circadian rhythms and the immune system, thereby continuing its tradition of delivering the latest in clinical  and holistic medicine education. In addition, this workshop will  proceed with an analysis of the benefits and limitations of different types of popular nutritional and gut-replenishment strategies, including, but not limited to different varieties of the Mediterranean diet, different French Diets, different forms of vegan diets, ketogenic nutrition, paleo and carnivore diets, mono-dieting as well as the  DASH, GAP, FOD-map, vegetarian and instinctive  (raw) regimes.
(4). The senescence response is widely recognized as a potent tumor suppressive mechanism. As a consequence, most conventional oncologists and gerontologists do little if anything to target senescent cells. However, this avoidance is a mistake as the evidence demonstrates the over-all deleterious impact of senescent cells, including, but not limited to their impact on degenerative and hyper-plastic pathologies that are characterized by chronic inflammation and metastases. On the other hand, most biogerontologists will focus quasi-exclusively in myriad lab-made senolytics that  are destined to remove senescent cells. In this realm, the Happiness Medicine Institute’s recommendation is to first address this challenge via the holistic modulation of the immune system. If the holistic approach does not work or is too limited in its rejuvenation impact, we then examine conventional medicine’s contribution in depth and attempt to find the safest and most efficient longevity protocol based on strong science.
(5). Without a more personalized approach to medicine based on the fundamentals (healthy food, gut health, fasting,  exercises, community, emotions, sleep etc), the number of diseases will continue to grow exponentially. In this perspective, the ICD-10 (which is the WHO’s international disease classification system) went from 17,000 (ICD-9) to 155,000 (ICD-10) different codes that track new disease diagnoses and procedures, which means we went from around 15,000 to over 55,000 different types of diseases in a little over ten years. (2) To make matters worse, the processes that govern healthy aging are deteriorating while most chronic diseases have reached an epidemic magnitude. It is therefore urgent that both heath professionals and patients learn the fundamentals that impact gene expression, cellular repair, smooth hormonal cascading, in particular with the HPA and HPT axes, homeostasis, senescence reversal and rejuvenation in a cost-friendly, safe, actionable and efficient manner. To check out the magnitude of this public health challenge, see  CMS Office of Public Affairs (February 11, 2008). “HHS Proposes Adoption of ICD-10 Code Sets and Updated Electronic Transaction Standards” (Press release). U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.
(6). The anti-aging academy (A4M) sells a workshop on FMD and intermittent fasting which covers less territory and is four times more expensive, for 599 dollars. (Source)  In comparison, this workshop not only fully covers FMD, but also other types of fasts in relation to key nutritional and gut optimization strategies, many of which are not well known in the U.S.  Furthermore, this donation will help to finish the Institute’s documentary, part of which can be seen here. For those who have financial difficulties, please write to  explain your case and we will find a solution. We are also working on an online 101 master course on this topic. Once the Institute’s Longevity book will be finished, we will focus on this online master class. 
(7). Given his European and clinical background, Professor Joubert will also review some of the best longevity breakthroughs and practices from Europe and other parts of the world (Asia included), many of which have been under-reported in this country. Likewise with recent biogerontology and longevity conferences in the United States, some of the best and most recent data will be assessed, from A4M anti-aging conferences, to Life extension, cancer immunotherapy and biogerontology symposia, including from Professor Longo’s Institute of Longevity at the University of California in Los Angeles which we have visited.
