General Description of the Workshop

 Each of the Workshop’s Three Seminars focuses on complementary aspects of Vitality and Longevity Medicine.  The first Seminar is devoted to the Theory of Rejuvenation Medicine. Once we have the tools to better understand the fundamental mechanisms of living and aging, we can then delve into some clincal practical experience,  starting with the first holistic priority which is the Gut-Brain axis, in particular the gastro-intestinal system and its detoxification pathways in associatino with brain health enhancement. The Second Seminar is devoted to an over-view of the body’s major physiological systems as well as to an analysis of the major disorders that can hit each of these bodily functions. An analysis of a  few key tune-up techniques is also presented. In the Third Seminar, we dig deep into the constituent elements of the Optimal Longevity Code, thanks to which each workshopee will have the complete toolbox to tune-up and optimize all of the body’s major functions. In addition, this Seminar will identify the key techniques that activate the Longevity genes and pathways so that each workshopee can maximize his or her conditions to benefit from a healthy lifepan to at least 120 years.

This Workshop will also give an update on the bio-tech and geroscience industry’s innovative gene therapy research and other high-tech lifespan strategies, some of which are in clinical trials. However, because it may take many more years before these innovations can be accessible and positively impact today’s chronic disease and accelerated aging epidemics, this Workshop emphasizes what can be done now to slow down and even reverse the biological erosion of mammalian cells.

All Longevity Claims supported by Strong Science

The Workshop’s three Seminars’ content will be supported with strong published peer-reviewed evidence that will be visible either via power point and-or video. For an introduction to the subject presented by this Workshop’s presenter, Professor Joubert, see  video A below. For a general overview on where we are today in terms of innovative Bio-Tech Research and longevity genes, see video B from Professor Sinclair.

Seminar One: On the Preliminaries to Optimal Longevity Medicine (8 hours)

(We are scheduling this First Seminar for June 16th, 2018, details forthcoming)

Introduction (45 minutes)

“The field of ageing research has been completely transformed in the past decade. . . . When single genes are changed, animals that should be old stay young. In humans, these mutants would be analogous to a ninety year old who looks and feels forty-five. On this basis we begin to think of ageing as a disease that can be cured, or at least postponed. . . . The field of ageing is beginning to explode, because so many are so excited about the prospect of searching for – and finding – the causes of ageing, and maybe even the fountain of youth itself”. (Guarente and Kenyon, Nature, 2000)

In this first 8 hours-long Seminar on Optimal Longevity Medicine, the workshopees will first be introduced to Biogerontology, Geroscience and Longevity medicine as well as to the hard and compelling evidence that corroborates not only the reality of healthy long human lifespans (in between 110 and 122 years of age), but also the accessibility of attaining this birth-right for most humans. 

Likewise with longevity valleys and blue zones, we will identify the key longevity factors that characterize some of these geographical areas where healthy centenarians are abundant.

The 18 concomitant longevity biomarkers will also be briefly reviewed, as this preliminary will help the workshopee to understand the difference between biological and chronological age, (Cf Video below) as well as the empowering reality that we the People can influence the rate at which we oxidize, de-ossify and eventually decompose for the benefit of the Earth’s trillions and trillions of bacteria and archaea who have been the “masters” insofar as Life’s evolution and mammalian microbiota-based homeostasis are concerned. And yes, there  is a strong causative correlation between human gut bacteria and long healthy lifespans.

For centuries, the aging process has been considered to be uncontrolable, even when the average lifespan did not surpass 40 years. That changed in the early nineties when research on C. elegans, (a tiny nematode worm) confirmed that a single gene mutation extended its life, and that another mutation blocked that extension. The idea that age could be tweaked by twiddling a few control genetic switches ignited a research boom, including via Silicon Valley Billionaires. With hundreds of million dollars of research dollars, geroscientists got motivated to attempt to break and hack the Longevity Code.

In this perspective, various clinical interventions did increase the worm’s lifespan by a factor of ten and those of lab mice by a factor of two. Petri dish human cells by 40. (See conclusion). The scientific consensus thus transformed. Aging went from being a God given blessing or Satan’s curse, to an inevitable final stage (Cf  Time cover from 1958: “Growing Old Usefully”), followed by a social issue (Time, 1970: “Growing Old in America: The Unwanted Generation”) to this avoidable “je ne sais quoi” phenomenon (1996: “Forever Young”) that could defer death to 142 years for starts (Cf 2015: Time “This Baby Could Live to Be 142 Years Old”).

However, the excitement was not long lasting. The Longevity Code cook-book is far more complex for mammals and even more so for humans than for a C. Elegans worm, fly or mouse. The more we learn, the more we realize how little we actually know. Hence, the presentor’s scientific attitude is to prefer the known fundamentals that work to at least 122 years of age over speculative bio-tech longevity engineering stratagems, even if some of these may appear interesting and even promising in the years to come.

In reality and at this juncture of the Human adventure, waiting a few years (especially for baby-boomers) before some of these bio-tech longevity hacks may be accessible is not cellularly responsible, if only because today we have the knowledge that key available holistic tools can  reverse most chronic diseases while significantly slowing down the aging process. So for the Happiness Mediicne Institute team and this workshop, this is the priority.

While this Seminar is especially centered on the Praxis of Traditional Longevity Medicine, it will also delve into the verifiable cutting edge findings which show that modern techniques like gene editing, stem cell cyro-preservation, telomerase tweaking, senescent cell targeting, caloric restriction mimickers, nano-robots, senolytics and the like may have some interest for the eternal quest to live long, happy and healthy lifespans.

The Biology of Aging

Over Twenty Longevity Hallmarks on which Holistic medicine has a favorable impact (1:10 hour)

“Medicine is not only a science; it is also an art. It does not consist of compounding pills and plasters; it deals with the very processes of life, which must be understood before they may be guided.” Paracelsus

The gist of Day One focuses on aging’s major hallmarks. We will cover as many of these halmarks as time allows.

THIS SECTION UNDER CONSTRUCTION

To be motivated to adopt a Holistic Restorative and Rejuvenation Lifestyle, it is first necessary to understand the mechanisms that govern normal aging in relation to accelerated aging and slow holistic aging. When we see that Lifestyle and holistic savoir-faire impact all of the major hallmarks of aging, including gene expression, it is then easier to pay attention to what is important in Life, provided one desires a healthy supercentenarian existence. But one must genuinely desire to achieve this Life potential. The supercentenarian life is not for the faint of heart. To achieve this high vibrational level of Life, resistance against toxicity and activation of holistic techniques, including in the fields of relaxation, detox, exercises, meditation, up-beat attitude, quality nutrition, sleep and quality water intake, inter alia, are needed.

This section will thus look at the major macro-mechanisms or hallmarks that characterize the evolutionary-sculpted aging cascade and whose control promotes healthy lifespans to at least 120 years.

Genome Instability

First off we have genomic or genome instability. We are talking about less genetic expression than how the entire gene system withstands the passage of time in the face of toxins and regarding the redox system. In particular, genomic instability deals with nuclear and mitochondrial DNA damage via mutations within the genome of a cellular lineage. These mutations can include changes in nucleic acid sequences, chromosomal rearrangements or aneuploidy. While genome instability can occur in bacteria, it is more prevalent in multicellular organisms. It is central to carcinogenesis. It derives from both endogenous and exgenous sources. Much of the DNA damage is done by oxidative stress, coming from geno-toxic pro-oxidants which steal electrons from living molecules. When electron donors can’t compensate, the cell stresses out and in the process, DNA mutations and genomic instability can be produced. Mitochondrial ROS is also a factor. Endogenous (metabolically-caused) DNA damage is also frequent, occurring on average more than 60,000 times a day in the genomes of human cells.

To significantly extend human lifespan, we thus need to focus on removing or attenuating the exogenous factors that lead to genomic instability and adverse DNA mutation. In addition, we also need to focus on stabilizing if not mitigating the endogenous causes that produce cellular DNA damage as well as those that promote DNA repair, which is one of Optimal Longevity’s hallmarks (Source).

Free Radicals & Oxidative Stress

Age-related degeneration diseases and aging are also believed to be the result of oxidative stress (ROS activity) and free radical erosion. Exposure to ROS, created through normal cellular metabolism and environmental hazards and inflammation, results in damage to cellular structures, leading to loss of critical cell functions. (Source)

However, new evidence emerged invalidating the free radical & oxidative stress theory of aging that so many gerontologists still believe in. Most of this evidence came from epidemiological studies a few years back showing that antioxidant supplementation did not lower the incidence of many age-associated diseases but, in a number of cases, increased the risk of death. (Source) Moreover, recent molecular evidence has shown that increasing generation of ROS, in some cases, increases longevity. (Source) Biogerontologists interested in free radical biology are at a crossroads and clearly new insights are required to clarify the role of free radicals and ROS in the process of aging.

To significantly extend human life, we thus need to focus on holistic ways to better control and minimize free radicals while better modulating oxidative stress. It so happens, with few exceptions, that neither conventional nor integrative medicine’s drugs and supplements are useful and safe. On the other hand, happiness medicine’s “savoir faire” and techniques are able to boost antioxidants and modulate oxidative stress holistically so that healthy lifespans are favored.

Telomere Shortening and Telomerase dormancy

Located at the end of our chromosomes, these DNA repeats modulate the number of times cells divide. The longer the telomeres, the more cells divide, from 50 divisions or doublings to 70 for example, which corresponds to about 120 years, which has been called the Hayflick limit. The shorter telomeres get, the less they divide. When they can no longer divide, then go into senescence mode, and that not only clogs up the system, but accelerated aging.

While all of our cells’ DNA code for telomerase gene, this gene is dormant in our somatic cells. Different labs have found this gene in just about all of our somatic cells, but they are not activated.  However, for germ (gonads) cells and cancer cells, the DNA of these structures fully express the telomerase enzyme genes, which means that germ and cancer cells always divide and therefore don’t age. This is why babies are not born with the aged cells of their parents. The Telomerase clock is renewed at each birth.  Stem cells have their telomerase partially expressed for minimum telomerase expression. The better the expression of these genes within stem cells, the better stem cells can get their cellular repair task done. But all of our other somatic cells are destined to die within the Hayflick limit, some quicker than others depending on epigenetic factors.

To significantly extend a healthy human lifespan, we therefore need to focus on the expression of telomerase genes in both somatic and stem cells. While conventional medicine and its mainstream scientists are searching for cash-flow drugs, genetic editing technology and other high-tech tools to activate telomerase genes without promoting cancer, Holistic Savoir-faire has been teaching for millennia years simple longevity techniques like sun bathing, meditation, certain caloric restricted diets and, among other approaches, “joie de vivre” lifestyle, all of which have been proven by a preponderance of the evidence to upregulage telomerase genes without feeding carcinogenesis. Of hundreds of telomerase activators conventional medicine has tested,  just about all have a cancer risk (including other side effects) and don’t appear to be that efficient in terms of optimal longevity. Differently from the conventional approach, the more we can boost the telomerase genes holistically, the less cancer cells proliferate and the healthier and longer human cells live. (Source).

The Epigenetic Drift

Another central hallmark of aging is the epigenetic drift and its Epigenetic Clock. This biochemical phenomenon is characterized by gains and losses in DNA methylation in the genome over time. Experimentation showed that the epigenetic drift occurs more rapidly in mice than in monkeys and more rapidly in monkeys than in humans. This is one reason why certain animals live for shorter or longer periods of time. Methylation patterns drift steadily throughout life, with methylation increasing in some areas of the genome, and decreasing in others. As we will see via Power Point, these epigenetic changes have linked to the aging process.

As for Epigenetics, (without the drift), this discipline deals with the epigenome, meaning “that which is above” the genome. The epigenome appears to be the master program which controls our genetic code by switching off and on genes and their proteins. In this context, our eukariotic longevity genes as well as our microbiota genes can get silenced, expressed or even over expressed An epigenome consists of a record of the chemical changes to the DNA and histone proteins of an organismThese changes can be passed down to an organism’s offspring via transgenerational epigenetic inheritance. The French scientist Lamark noted this, but Darwin and mainstream geneticists weren’t paying sufficient attention to the nature of reality, thereby refuting the Frenchman’s ideas. Today, the evidence is compelling that changes to the epigenome can affect inter-generational threads while impacting the structure of chromatin and the function of the genome. Furthermore, age-related DNA methylation changes are as much connected to the epigenetic drift process as they are to the epigenetic clock. (Source) The DNA methylation system is dynamic  and interacts with the genome, the environment, and the epigenome, all of which influence health and the aging process. (Source) (1)

To significantly extend healthy human lifespans, we therefore need to focus on optimizing epigenetic activation, expressing the longevity genes, silencing the bad genes and correctly modulating the epigenetic drift as well as the epigenetic clock. While conventional medicine is still searching for cash-flow drugs and gene editing technology that will do the job, Holistic and integrative Medicine has perfected multiple lifestyle techniques in combination dietary supplements (neutraceuticals) that can optimize epigenetic expression of the good genes, the silencing of the deleterious and accelerated aging genes and the slowing down of the epigenetic drift, thanks to which long healthy  lifespans can be a reality.

Proteostasis Disorder

The decline in the protein quality of our cells, called the loss of proteostasis, is a fundamental mechanism of aging. Our bodies have defenses against cellular stress. However, after decades of repeated assaults by stressors such as free radicals, waste material and toxins, the proteins in our cells become damaged. As a result, they misfolded. Amyloidosis from which many supercentenarian die is a misfoldment of protein problem.

To significantly extend healthy human lifespans, we therefore need to focus on  the clearance of accumulated waste products, altered tau (in tauopathies) and, inter alia, misfolded proteins. What helps is to activate processes like autophage and Heat Shock Proteins. To upregulate the heat shock response so that the body’s proteins can enjoy a good level of protection from the degradation process that occurs during times of cellular stress, Holistic & Happiness Medicine has non toxic solutions help to promote autophagy while activating the HS proteins and their genes. The end result: longevity is optimized and chronic diseases are better controlled if not avoided altogether.

The Clogging-up and Dysfunctions of the Body’s Six Key Metabolic Detoxification Pathways

There are 6 Phase II detoxification pathways in the body that need to be in good shape for Life to durably withstand the passage of time.  Each conjugation pathway serves a specific purpose of detoxifying certain toxins and toxicants. These biochemical pathways require specific nutrients to function.  These 6 detoxification pathways include: Glutathione conjugation, Methylation, Sulfation, Acylation/Glycation, Acetylation, and  Glucuronidation.  These 6 conjugation pathways are found primarily in the liver, but also in various other locations within the body, including, but not limited to the kidneys, intestine, lung, skin, prostate, spleen, gastric mucosa CNS. (Source) After a toxin (xenobiotic) has gone through the process of becoming hydrophilic (water-soluble) through reactions overseen by Phase I enzymes, its intermediate molecules are then conjugated with endogenous hydrophilic enzymes. (Source) However, with aging there is a gradual decline in the efficacy of these pathways. While Conventional Medicine is experimenting with one-pathway synthetic drug agents, it has founding nothing without significant toxic effects to boost these detox pathways.

To significantly extend healthy human lifespans, we must put in place a Holistic Lifestyle and activate holistic science. We  already know that certain foods, states of mind and evironmental factors can significantly improve the function of these metabolic detoxification pathways, included but not limited to the Gutathione pathway, the activation of which is one of the keys to healthy longevity.  Given the importance of these pathways, practical and holistic measures that optimize these metabolic detox pathways need to be put in place.

The mTOR pathway

Section under construction

Autophagy Decline

Autophagy is an evolutionally conserved cytoplasmic degradation system in which varieties of materials are sequestered by a double membrane structure, autophagosome, and delivered to the lysosomes for the degradation. Due to the wide varieties of targets, autophagic activity is essential for cellular homeostasis. Recent genetic evidence indicates that autophagy has a crucial role in the regulation of mammalian lifespan. We know this because the evidence has shown that basal level of autophagic activity is elevated in many longevity paradigms and the activity is required for lifespan extension. Pharmacological treatments have been shown to extend lifespan through activation of autophagy, indicating autophagy could be a potential and promising target to modulate animal lifespan. But because of inconclusive evidence and toxic side effects from synthetic drugs, the holistic route may be more fertile.

To significantly extend healthy human lifespans, we therefore need to focus on holistic ways to enhance autophagous pathways. By aiding the body to remove cell debris, tired white blood cells and other metabolic garbage, autophagy and its sister mitophagy (ie, same principle but regarding the mitochondria) will also signal stem cells to multiply, as a result, life can  be significantly extended. In this perspective, the 2016 Nobel in physiology was granted to a Japanese autophagy expert (Source) and in this Talk, we will analyze his discoveries and pinpoint actionable autophagous holistic techniques. (Source)

Lysosome Degradation

Lysosomes were discovered more than 60 years ago as highly acidic cellular organelles containing many enzymes responsible for breaking down macromolecules. Since then, their roles have expanded. Today, they are understood as being “…. the main catabolic organelles of a cell and play a pivotal role in a plethora of cellular processes, including responses to nutrient availability and composition, stress resistance, programmed cell death, plasma membrane repair, development, and cell differentiation. In line with this pleiotropic importance for cellular and organismal life and death, lysosomal dysfunction is associated with many age-related pathologies like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease, as well as with a decline in lifespan. Conversely, targeting lysosomal functional capacity is emerging as a means to promote longevity” (Source) In addition to these processes, it is interesting to note that lysosomes function in autophagy, the process that breaks down cellular components to allow cell survival and homeostasis in the face of starvation.

However, not all byproducts of metabolism can be easily broken down by these catabolic enzymes. As a consequence, in long-lived cell populations lysosomes become bloated & dysfunctional, filled with a mix of hardy waste products called lipofusin. As a consequence, these lysosomes are thus much less able to perform their recycling activities. This contributes to the progression of aging. (2)

To significantly extend healthy human lifespans, we should improve lysosomal function via holistic savoir-faire. While Conventional Medicine’s drugs have not been sucessful in durably breaking down the important constituents of lipofuscin, inter alia, with Holistic Science, by tweaking with the microbiota, enzyme therapy, clinical nutrition, spermidine or rapamycin administration and more, these catabolic organelles can be fine-tuned for enhanced cellular garbage disposal and cell signaling tasks, among other functions. (Source)

Nutrient and  Caloric Sensors Dysfunction

With “wear and tear” and the passage of time, metabolic changes lead to deregulated nutrient sensing. While mammals have multiple nutrient sensing pathways to make sure that our bodies take in just the right amount of nutrients, inter alia, there are three main nutrient sensors that can be optimized for healthy lifespans. These are mTOR, AMPK and insulin, each of which modulate significant biochemical pathways. Most of these sensors affect multiple pathways. Blocking or inhibiting mTOR  for example improves protein handling, increases autophagy and enhances stem cell function. (Source)

To significantly extend healthy lifespans, we should better understand the interplay of these sensors and how to optimize them. Contrarily to the Government’s ideologically-driven Conventional Medicine and even to most of integrative medicine, Holistic Science recommends fewer nutrients as well as better quality nutrients, inter alia. This is why caloric restriction and holistic vegan diets extend lifespans. Hence the rationale for decreasing and optimizing the above mentioned nutrient sensors. There are other holistique techniques that can be used for these nutrient sensor endeavors, some of which will be reviewed in this seminar.  (Source)

Mitochondrial Break-down

As human cells age, the mitochondria start to lose their integrity due to the build-up of free radical damage, inter alia. Degraded mitochondrial function leads to decline in ATP production and an increase in a type of cell death known as apoptosis. This mitochondrial decline is especially noticeable in tissues with high energy demand such as the heart and the brain. This Hallmark is still a strong candidate for being one of Aging’s key engines. (Source)

Cellular Senescence

When telomeres shorten, cells can’t divide anymore, at which point they become senescent. When we are vibrant, senescent cells are thought to be cleared by the immune system, but when we are older, they stick around secreting harmful inflammation molecules and sticking to healthy cells. Canakinumab was manufactured to dampen this senescence inflammation called infammaging. But this drug has its limits. (Source)

Stem Cell Depletion

As we oxidize (lose electrons), inter alia, our stem cells eventually lose their ability to divide and thus go into decline, at which point our bodies are unable to replace the stem cells that have migrated, differentiated, or died. Hence, the increase of age-related disorders, if only because the main function of stem cells is to replace damaged tissues. Because stem cell exhaustion is an important hallmark of aging, geroscientists are working on attempts to rejuvenate stem cells with synthetic chemicals and high tech technology. However, most times, this leads to both drug resistance and significant complications and toxic effects. On the other hand, integrative and regenerative medicine focuses on the  early “banking” (storage) of stem cells that can be inoculated to worn out tissues when needed. Holistic medicine’s focus is on preserving and replenishing stem cells for quality living way over 100 years. (Source)

Tissue Repair Deficiencies

Besides Stem cell repair and DNA enzyme-based repair, there is tissue or cellular repair.  Section under construction.

Inter-cellular Communication Haywiring

The Altered Inter-cellular Communication. As mammaliam cells divide and transform into senescent cells, their communication with other cells becomes dysfunctional leading to an increase in chronic inflammatory distress signals and misfiring of hormonal and neurotransmitter messaging. As a consequence thereto, hormonal instructions go haywire. For example, the aging hypothalamus changes neurohormone signals, which in turn affects food intake and metabolism. Since the hypothalamus also regulates sleep cycles, these changes can perturb sleep, inhibit DNA repair and, inter alia, accelerating aging even further. (“inter alia” is legal  latin for “among other elements”).

Circadian Rythms Disorder

The hallmark relative to the circadian pathway is relatively new. The 2017 Nobel Prize in Physiology (Medicine) went to scientists who dug deep to unravel some of the mysteries of circadian biology. When humans don’t respect Nature’s rhythms like the sleep-wake (melatonin-cortisol) cycle, aging is accelerated.

Microbiota Dysbiosis

The Microbiota’s and the Microbiome’s networking. As we will see, the very same bacteria who have been so essential in the complexification of Life over the last 65 millions of years are living in our guts churning away to make us either sick and short lived or healthy and long lived. For example, supercentenarians have a diversed amount of youthful bacteria whereas sick people who die young have lots of dysbiosis. Microbiome science has been one of the most recent scientific revolutions in Medicine, disproving a big chunk of mainstream medical dogmas. Today, to the bacteria-laden microbiome, micro-biologists have identified inter-related networks of viruses, archeae, fungi, yeast and parasites that all contribute one way or another to the process of human biology, chronic diseases and aging.

The Endocannabinoid System’s Under-activation

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids, which are endogenous lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors, and cannabinoid receptor proteins that are expressed throughout the mammalian central nervous system (including the brain) and peripheral nervous system. (Source) The endocannabinoid system is also involved in regulating a variety of physiological and cognitive processes including but not limited to general homeostasis and fertility, pregnancy, postnatal development, appetite, pain-sensation, mood, memory, neurogenesis, inflammation, the immune system and, among other biological systems,  the longevity pathways, including, but not limited to brain rejuvenation (neurogenesis),  significant Lou Gehrig’s Disease life extension and general longevity via the dietary restriction signaling pathway. This biological ECS system is at the heart of evolutionary biology, ontological experience and optimal longevity. It is so important that scientists have created a new deficiency disease called “Clinical Cannabinoid Deficiency” disorder. (Source)

While the body is able to activate the ECS’s endocannibinoid receptors on its own, given mainstream’s toxicity, stress and conventional synthetic drug and trauma based medicine, much of the human and mamalian endocannabinoid system is under-activated or inhibited. Hence, the lack of wellbeing and joie de vivre. (Source). A holistic lifestyle with certain cannabinoid plants can partially remedy this deficiency, thanks to which a healthy lifespan can be better assured.  Helichrysum, Echinacea, (containing cannabinoids called N-alkylamides),  liverwort, black pepper and a few others plants that contain cannabinoids can help, but cannabis is by far the most abundant and rich in healthy and longevity producing cannabinoids, over 80 of them, all integrated within the “whole” in the right proportions. (Source)

To significantly extend healthy human lifespans, we should therefore better reintegrate cannabinoid plants in mainstream’s Pharmacies and educate Health professionals and patients to include this plant in their practice, meals and gardens, from euthanasia, helichrysum and black pepper and to cannabis and more. Education should also examine how to use cannabinoids’ medicinal properties so as to avoid side effects and mis-use. Additional government-funded research on cannabis’ impact on healthy lifespan would also be useful. (The Government’s “public health” authorities have only allowed to grant research on whatever may be toxic with cannabis).

Neurological and Consciousness Disorders

Psycho-neuro-endocrinology. Indeed, the psychology of aging is relevant. Most supercentenarians who make it to over 110 years have mastered the art of drama control and flappability. Chronic stress,  emotional scars, what is called ACES or childhood traumas and Professeur Laborit’s “inhibition of action” process can all durably  impact the epigenetic expression of human genomes and degenerative diseases.

 Thymus Dysfunction

Last, we have the thymus. An underestimated organ, the thymus is key in immune function. Because it shrinks with age, mainstream medical scientists have written off its importance. But this super-gland that inhabits our chest may be one of the most over-looked and important that need not shrink when holistic conditions prevail.

 Complementary Variables

ATP (glucose-ketones-acetate), Redox (electron donors and takers), Ph and Longevity Genes, including but not limited to the Sirtuin Genes

ATP dysfunctioning is also an issue. The way our mitochondria burn fuel via the ATP system (i.e., most of the ATP that is produced by aerobic cellular respiration is made by oxidative phosphorylation) is one of the keys to aging. While much attention has been focused on the fat burnig fuel called keto-diet, the biochemical reality is that keto-dieting is deleterious long term for the human health. While essential fats are vital, the human body makes most of what it needs with a plant-strong diet. A Mediterranean diet can also be beneficial. On the other hand, while there may be some short term benefits with ketogenic diets, minimizing quality carb fueling as well lactate burning and focusing on animal fats are dietary mistake from the viewpoint of healthy lifespans and science. To these questions will be added an analysis of Redox, PH and longevity genes, including the Sirtuin Family.

Honing in on Key Rejuvenation and Life Extension Techniques (30 minutes)

This Talk will hone in on what appears to be the quintessence and most promising of the present Research on significant and healthy lifespan extensions, all of which can be subsumed within three general categories: Telomerase cellular delivery via gene-tweaking; DNA repair mechanisms via molecular signaling and Metabolic Fine-tuning via holistic savoir-faire.

First Category relative to telomerase activation: Even though an abundance of telomerase enzymes and long telomeres can accompany conditions like cancer and accelerated aging, (Source) contemporary Research (including today’s 51  clinical trial on telomerase) is investing hundreds of million of dollars on a relatively new gene-therapy what was invented in 1999. Today, after 18 years of experimentation, longevity scientists are honing in on the telomerase enzyme as one of the central rejuvenation engines that could significantly reset the aging clock of somatic cells.  (See Note 2 and also Exhibits C below)

The second category is focused on DNA repair mechanisms and sirtuin genes. Many Longevity experts and Biogerontologists claim that aging’s central  hallmark is  characterized by the failure of DNA repair mechanisms to correctly unfold and fix the cell’s accumulated damage. As a consequence, genomic instability accumulates and with it, carcinogenesis, other degenerative diseases and accelearted aging,  which would be one of Nature’s ways to invite death to end a person’s healthy lifespan for having excessively deviated from evolutionary biology. Professor Sinclair from Harvard is one of the main scientists who has invested a lot of time and effort in this realm. His  Lab has been focused on this question for years, first on wine’s resveratrol molecule and more recently on NAD +, inter alia. (See Exhibit D for illustrations)

The Third Category is hinged more on metabolic and holistic medicine, in particular of how food, movement and fasting can turn on and off epigenetically switches that will activate survival, fat burning and longevity genes. While the proponents of this school are not as extravagant or ambitious as the first two other schools in terms of extreme longevity to over 150 years, it’s theoretical foundations are coherent while its evidentiary basis is supported by petri dish, animal, comparative studies, epidemiology and non-randomized human clinical trials. Professor Seigfried, Agnosco, Longo and the Happiness Medicine Team are a few of its proponents. (See Exhibit B for illustrations).

*****

In addition to a scant review of the pending clinical trials on senolytics, C.R. mimetics, senescent cells, what the National Institute of Aging and other Longevity Research institutes are working on and a word on the inter-connectivity of all of aging’s hallmarks, (3) this Section will therefore weigh the central arguments of each of these three schools and make a factual determination as to which avenue of Research may be the most promising in terms of the People (ie, and not just the wealthy one-percent who can afford a one million dollar “shot”) being able to benefit from an affordable and meaningful access to the best optimal longevity tools that will significantly extend healthy Lifespans for the majority in the here and the now while significantly contributing in resolving both the Nation’s social security and the national debt crises.

Holistic Cardiology in a Nutshell (10 minutes)

Cardiovascular diseases are both the First cause of premature death and the easiest epidemic to fixed holistically. So easy that the Pharmaceutical cartel poors in the most bribery money to cardiologists, the majority of whom have no qualms accepting these poisoned gifts. (Source) Yet, as we will briefly see, reversing holistically most CVDs in a matter of weeks is a “piece of cake” . (Source) Just one illustration supporing this claim:

“Dyslipidemia is a primary risk factor for cardiovascular disease, peripheral vascular disease, and stroke. (…) Twenty-seven randomized controlled and observational trials were included. Of the 4 types of plant-based diets considered, interventions testing a combination diet (a vegetarian or vegan diet combined with nuts, soy, and/or fiber) demonstrated the greatest effects (up to 35% plasma low-density lipoprotein cholesterol reduction), followed by vegan and ovolactovegetarian diets. Interventions allowing small amounts of lean meat demonstrated less dramatic reductions in total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein levels. In conclusion, plant-based dietary interventions are effective in lowering plasma cholesterol concentrations”(Source)

Detoxification & Toxicology (30 minutes or more)

“Toxemia is one of the major causes of most diseases” Dr Tilden

Notwithstanding detoxification as one of the body’s endogenous metabolic processes, detoxification as a healing tool in medicine is a controversial subject. In Conventional medicine, the Government’s N.I.H experts claim that  “…there isn’t any convincing evidence that detox or cleansing programs actually remove toxins from your body or improve your health. Weight loss on a detox diet may be because these diets are often very low in calories(Source) while independent but conventional scientists in peer-reviewed studies will outrightly debunk detoxification techniques as being useful for disease reversal and longevity. On the other hand, experts in the integrative-functional-holistic fields confirm its validity. One of the key elements that conventional scientists often invoke to assess the effectiveness of detoxifying diets for example is based on the lack of human Randomized Control Trials (cf Source). As mentioned below, RCT (or randomized double blind control trials) are difficult to perform in the holistic realm because the patients who are on a detox diet usually know via nose receptors and taste buds what they are eating. So there can’t be a double blind study, most of which are designed for the “pill for each ill cash-flow model”. After assessing the pros and cons of holistic detoxification, the Happiness Medicine Institute has determined that detoxification in general is supported by the evidence and constitutes a powerful rejuvenation technique, notwithstand some unsupported cash-flow motivated claims in the alternative health field.

In this power-point-based talk, drainage followed by detoxification pathways (both metabolic and exogenous) will be reviewed as toxemia is causative to many diseases, including, but not limited to the plastic-derived bisphenol A and phthalates as well as low molecular weight hydrocarbons (LMWHCs), polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and other lipophilic chemicals which promote serious neurological diseases, as well as obesogens and metabolism disruptors chemicals and other neurotoxins and persistent pollutants the World Health Organization and the Stockhom Convention have requested from their Members prompt elimination (called POPS) as well as thousands and thousands of other  harmful chemicals, including processed vegetable oils, (ie, the toxicity of which increases when heated) and the ubiquitous and extremely damaging Roundup pesticides based on glyphosate and heavy metals like mercury that have been spewing from volcanoes and irresponsible human economic, medical, vaccination and dental activities, all of which have been associated with accelerated aging, the death of 58 percent of wild-life and dozens of chronic diseases: “Recent studies suggest that chronic exposure, even to low concentration levels of mercury, can cause cardiovascular, reproductive, and developmental toxicity, neurotoxicity, nephrotoxicity, immunotoxicity, and carcinogenicity”. (Source)

This talk will  also look at different detox protocols, both their strengths and their limitations. It’s important to realize that detoxifying without taking enough good binders and a good diet rich in fibers, kidney support and liver enhancers can be damaging because the released toxins need to get bounded and then get neutralized by the metabolic detox pathways and-or properly secreted through the drainage channels that need to be in good shape. Also detoxifying via fasting can be dangerous as toxins will be released from their fat storage and inundate the bloodstream and kidneys. One of the most damaging practices is to take detox pills without an appropriate high-fiber diet and lifestyle. The importance of diet can’t be over-emphasized because certain foods can either strengthen or weaken the master-antioxydant and intra-cellular detoxifier, glutathione,  as well as the body’s key metabolic detoxification pathways that clean cells from the inside out, including, but not limited to phase I cytochrome enzymes, phase II conjugation enzymes, phase III excretion proteins, antioxidant support systems, and metallothionein upregulation for heavy metal metabolism and more.

Thus, evidence-based detox methods including regular heavy metal detoxifiction protocols and therapeutic phlebotomy (bloodletting) should be  diligently considered for both disease reversal and longevity optimization. And when possible, overseen via a qualified health professional.

However, not all detox claims are substantiated by strong or even modest evidence. Thus, some of what the Government’s courts have condemned (like detox foot pads and unsubstantiated and-or dangerous weight loss techniques) appear to be justified. While other more reasonable claims that the FTC or FDA and courts have condemned (ie, “spurious” claims on the health benefits of raw milk or anti-cancer herbs, apricot pits or cannabinoids) do not appear to be justified. In this section, we will thus compare the arguments and facts with regard to the pros and the cons of different detox techniques and then make a reasonable determination as to where the preponderance of the evidence lies regarding some of the more popular detoxificataion claims that are invoked in the integrative and holistic fields: in particular: anemas, colonics, saunas, ionic foot baths, detox supplements (clays, ALA, Nac, milk thistle etc), diet, fasting, sweating, exercises and more.

Home Detox from the Sick Building Syndrome (20 minutes)

We will also review the “home toxemia” challenge, the list of which is extensive. This Seminar’s section is important because holistic medicine’s first task is to identify the deep underlying causes to diseases and many of these causes are found in one’s living area and in the workshopee’s lifestyle. Just the air inside most homes have been determined to be up to five times worse than the air pollution outside, wrote the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (ie, other sources say 10 times worse), while the W.H.O found that 4.3 million people die each year prematuraly from the air inside homes. (Source) To make matters worse, the non-profit Environmental Working Group tested over 2,000 cleaning products, and found that most of them contain chemicals that are linked to asthma, allergies, or even cancer. EWG found that, because American product manufacturers or distributors aren’t required to disclose all their ingredients, many of them don’t. Still worse, with electromagnetic and dirty electricity pollution, formaldehyde and arsenic in wood, lead in pipes, radon under the house, fire retardant outgasing from sofas and beds (toxic to the thyroid), mercury vapors in people’s mouths, deleterious bacteria and molds on the walls, and, among many other toxins, VOCs and phthalate esters all over (ie, these are plasticised polyvinyl chloride (PVC) materials used in floor (especially carpets) and wall covering materials, shower curtains, adhesives, synthetic etc), people develop respiratory, cancer and auto-immunity diseases, all of these problems make up a new disease category called the “sick building syndrome”.

This section will also examine many toxic garden, toxic cloth, toxic body & home care products that are deleterious to health while not being effectively regulated by the Industry, let alone by the Government’s regulatory agencies.

Toxins are particularly relevant because many heavy metals and deleterious chemicals hinder the proper functioning of mammaliam metabolism, the repair genes, the mitochondria energy system, the immune system, the thyroid, the messaging molecules (cytokines, hormones, neuropeptides, neurotransmitters etc), genes’ co-factors, the microbiota, the metabolic detox pathways and the like. Two of many examples, when BPA and other obesogens latch on insulin receptors, insulin resistance is promoted, that which sets the stage for diabetes and early death (Source) and all the more so that animal saturated fat is abundant and exercises deficient. When heavy metals are present, Lyme’s bacteria become much stronger. There are hundreds of examples of this nature, a few of which will be discussed in this talk as well as house detox protocols via house plants, hepa filters, ionizers and essential oils, organic paint, healthy building material, water purifiers and much more.

Detoxing via Different types of Fasting Techniques

Section under construction

 

Is Quality, Traditional & Moderate Wine a longevity & essential nutrient ? (20 minutes)

The evidence is established: The general population dies earlier and with more chronic diseases when they abstain from moderate to small amounts of wine while those who drink moderately wine on a regular basis live longer and have fewer chronic diseases. (Source). And these epidemiological studies didn’t even take into account the quality of the wine, whether it was grown traditionally and organic or with pesticides and deleterious chemicals. To my knowledge, there has never been a study correlating the traditional high quality toxicant-free wine with healthy longevity. But from the evidence invoked in the reference above, it is more than reasonable to hypothesize that early death and chronic diseases could be either partially or primarily the result of abstaining from this “essential nutrient”, moderate quality wine ?

In support of this assumption, Scientists have shown that caloric restriction increases life span in part through its effects on the sirtuin longevity genes and wine’s resveratrol has been shown to confer benefits similar to those of caloric restriction by strongly impacting the sirtuin gene known as SIRT2. (Source). Some of these resveratrol benefits help to activate DNA repair mechanisms, autophagy, arterial plaque removal, anti-cancer effects, hormone balancing and much more. In addition to resveratrol, wine has hundreds of other health-promoting and longevity molecules, a few of which we will look at.

As this Session will show, the evidence clearly demonstrates that when small to moderate amounts of quality traditionally made wine are culinarily combined with other foods, this synergistic combo will help heal dozens, yes, dozens of autoimmune and chronic diseases that modern men and women needlessly suffer from, if only because their elected officials and lackey company scientists have misleading equated wine with “alcohol”, which is as inane as saying that beans are “lectins”, kale is “oxalic acid”, spinash is “arsenic”, or almonds are “cyanide” just because some of these molecules are in these foods. Furthermore, without these above-mentioned molecules, these foods would become devoid of their therapeutic bang, just like wine, without its traditional natural fermentation process, it would not be as healthy and medicinal as grape juice.

In this Session, the workshopee will learn how wine can be diligently used as a health promoting aromatherapy as well as a longevity elixir that can help to avoid and treat many serious diseases, from cancer, hormonal problems and digestion issues to  coronary vascular diseases, hormonal problems,  diabetes, obesity, carotid arteriosclerosis and atherogenesis  and, among dozens of other ailments, amyloidosis, three forms of which are Alzheimer’s, Huttington’s and Parkinson’s diseases.

Speaking of which, (amyloidosis), another published study just came out corroborating that low dosage alcohol consumption in comparison to no alcohol or high alcohol consumption was beneficial for glymphatic function, meaning that the mammalian brain was better able to clear itself of harmful debris, which is key if one wants to avoid neurological diseases and dementia.

We will conclude this brief talk with a word on what Science and practice have determined to be the best healthy lifespan wines, their quantity, their “entourage” effect and synergy with other foods, including a few wines that come from different parts of France as well as some of the wine that comes from the longevity or blue zones and from quality and-or organic vineyards, if only because grapes grown without pesticides, organically and using the French-Italian traditional & holistic fermentation techniques have massive more resveratrol and other health promoting molecules than those which are grown conventionally, (i.e., usually with dozens of toxic pesticides, fungicides & chemical fertilizers), the effects of which can be as toxic as many conventional medicine’s drugs. In effect, just like the sperm count of “conventional” non holistic American males have lowered by close to 50 percent over the last 40 years, the resveratrol punch of conventional, chemical and fast-growing wines has drastically plummeted.

Is the Body’s Endocannabinoid System essential  insofar as general homeostasis, pain management and wellbeing are concerned ?

How to Remedy the Endocannabinoid System’s Under-activation and-or Inhibition (20 minutes)

 “There were never so many able, active minds at work on the problems of disease as now, and all their discoveries are tending toward the simple truth that you can’t improve on nature.” (Thomas Edison, 1902)

In this  talk, after a brief review of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and one of its diseases officially called clinical cannabinoid deficiency disorder (CECD), this section will show via power point the hard evidence that supports the safety and efficiency of cannabinoids in the following fields: Neurological illnesses: EpilepsyAlzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s, PTSD, autism, chronic painful debilitationbrain traumadepression, ALS and other neuro-disease. Different cancers: a few illustrations and auto-immune diseases and infections. Likewise with respiratory diseases, from asthma to allergies and  COPDmigraine,  arthitis, bonesdiabetes and kidney diseases and eye diseases. We will also show the compelling proof that cannabinoids are indicated for pain management and can be used to reduce the opiod epidemic and save the US Treasury hundreds of billions of dollars that are wasted (by going into the overseas’s coffres of law-makers’ friends in the pharmaceutical racket field, inter alia). Likewise with cannabinoids’ role in longevity medicine.

In terms of recent findings regarding cannabiniods role in optimal longevity, researchers in 2017 confirmed that cannabinoids may be a forgotten essential nutrient, in particular for the elderly. Because levels of natural cannabinoids in the ECS decline with aging,  German researchers focused on the correlation between cannabinoids and memory and provided convincing evidence that the lack of cannabinoids is a proximate cause of the loss of memory function in later life. They also show that it is possible to stave off this decline by using low doses of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) to supplement natural cannaboids. (Source)

Helichrysum, Echinacea, (containing cannabinoids called N-alkylamides), liverwortblack pepper and a few others plants that contain cannabinoids can help, but cannabis sativa and indica (ie, the hippie plant Nixon & Corporate cartels declared a War on paid by the People’s taxes) is by far the most abundant and rich in cannabinoids, over 80 of them, all in the right proportion. This Section will review the up-to-day cannabinoid scientific findings and the best clinical modalities that Science has found, including, but not limited to Smoking (not recommended) Vaporization: Cannabis oil: Edibles: Suppositories: Juicing: Tinctures: Cannabis tea: Transdermal Patches and more with specific organically grown strains. The scientific litterature has shown via peer reviewed published studies that over 700 human diseases respond favorably to cannabinoids. We will therefore cover only a few that are connected to healthy human lifespans.

The Big Three C’s: Cannabinoids, Curcuminoids and Carotenoids

Given the entourage effect, synergy, homeostasis and other mechanisms that are inherent to the very engine of evolutionary biology, when we mix cannabinoids like CBDs, CBNs, THCs, inter alia (among others) with other molecules coming from a living Rainbow-like diet full of luxuriant pigments and rich in polyphenols and phytochemicals like curcuminoids, carotenoids, terpenoids, peperine, myrcenes and other molecules, then we can get a nicer therapeutic bang thanks to which Life and Longevity are better expressed. That’s why combining a little organic ripe mango, (ie, mangoes are rich in carotenoids, terpenes and in particular myrcene which is responsible for giving mangoes their unique smell) to female organic medical sativa cannabis, whose genotype has over 30,000 different genes, will both potentiate its biomedical effects as well as  help its cannabinoids to better cross the blood brain barrier thanks to which the brain’s neurotransmitters will nicely fire-up. “… β-Myrcene has been shown to increase the maximum saturation level of the CB1 receptor, allowing for a greater maximum psychoactive effect. For most people, the consumption of a fresh mango, 45 minutes before inhaling cannabis, will result in a faster onset of psycho activity and greater intensity. β-Myrcene can be used in this same manner to improve uptake with a wide variety of chemical compounds”. (Source) And if the brain’s neurons are content, then the gut’s trillions of bacteria and their 2.4 million genes will be “happier” and, as a bonus, humans will benefit from less leaky gut (intestinal permeability) and a meaningful boost in the grounding Joie de Vivre Vibe, if only because key wellbeing molecules like serotonin and dopamine are made by these little intestinal critters that Conventional Medicine’s public authorities assassinate when many State licensed practitioners are inadvertently encouraged to systematically prescribed  antibiotics without holistic savoir-faire nor scientific justification.

Likewise with the therapeutic and synergistic combination of cannabis’s resin-rich flowers and certain other plants. The evidence is in and clearly shows that when ganja flowers are culinarily combined with other plants, this synergistic combo will help heal different autoimmune and chronic diseases that modern men and women needlessly suffer from, if only because their elected officials have criminally criminalized any and all healing nutritional recipes that contain even one microgram of the non-psycho-active cannabinoid called cannabidiol (CBD), one of the best anti-inflammatory and calming molecules God’s Plant Kingdom has bestowed upon all vertebrate animals.

Combining organic black pepper to curcuminoids will also enhance their anti-inflammatory and antioxidants virtues, if only because curcuminoids’  bioavailability will increase by 2000 times. As a bonus, malignant cells will be unhappy. (Source)

This section as well as the Kitchen session will go into these and a few other examples on how to best use one’s kitchen blender to optimize key nutrient uptake that can better modulate healthy Lifespans and boost Joie de Vivre for all.

 Statement on the Health Sciences  (10 minutes)

“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.” (source)

Conventional Medicine is a field of knowledge that is fraught with unreliability, contradictions, incompetence, careerism, conflicts of interests, fraud and change. Its published research findings are often refuted by subsequent evidence. Refutation and controversy is seen across the range of biomedical research designs, from clinical trials and traditional epidemiological studies (Source) to the most modern molecular research (Source). Furthermore, much of biomedical research isn’t even reproducible. (Source) And there is increasing concern that in modern conventional biomedical research, false findings may be the norm. (Source)

In this perspective, the famed Editor in Chief of one of the most prestigious scientific medical journals,  Lancet, confirms that conventional biomedical scientific unreliability is pervasive:

“A lot of what is published is incorrect.” I’m not allowed to say who made this remark because we were asked to observe Chatham House rules. (…) Why the paranoid concern for secrecy and non-attribution? Because this symposium—on the reproducibility and reliability of biomedical research, held at the Wellcome Trust in London last week—touched on one of the most sensitive issues in science today: the idea that something has gone fundamentally wrong with one of our greatest human creations.” (The editor in chief of Lancet, Richard Horton). (Source)

Longtime Editor in Chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ) Dr Marcia Angell also confirmed that much of the clinical bioresearch can’t be trusted.

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine” (“Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime Editor in Chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ), which is considered to another one of the most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals in the world). (Source)

And for Professor Michael Bracken, the Susan Dwight Bliss professor of epidemiology at Yale University School of Public Health, at least 87.5 percent of biomedical research is wasteful, inefficient and can also be harmful. 

“Waste is more than just a waste of money and resources (…) It can actually be harmful to people’s health.” For every 100 research projects, only half lead to published findings. Of those 50, half have significant design flaws, making their results unreliable. And of those 25, half are redundant or unnecessary because of previous work. “That’s how you get to 12.5 percent.” (Source)

In 2005 Dr. John P.A. Ioannidis, currently a professor in disease prevention at Stanford University, published one of the most widely accessed articles in the history of the Public Library of Science (PLoS) entitled Why Most Published Research Findings Are False. In his report, he stated that “…in modern research, false findings may be the majority or even the vast majority of published research claims.” Ioannidis’ research model indicated that up to 80 percent of non-randomized research studies are wrong, along with twenty-five percent of randomized trials (the supposed gold standard of research). These are the “prestigious” studies that are published in top peer reviewed medical journals. (Source)

And as early as 1996, Douglas G. Altman, head of Medical Statistics Laboratory in the UK, asked the following question in the British Medical Journal (BMJ):

“What… should we think about researchers who use the wrong techniques (either willfully or in ignorance), use the right techniques wrongly, misinterpret their results, report their results selectively, cite the literature selectively, and draw unjustified conclusions?” (His answer): “We should be appalled. Yet numerous studies of the medical literature… have shown that all of the above phenomena are common. This is surely a scandal.” (Source)

To make matters worse, the evidence shows htat less than 20% of medical interventions are based on sound scientific evidence (Source)  (Dubinsky M, Ferguson JH. Analysis of the National Institutes of Health Medicare Coverage Assessment. Int J Technol Assess Health Care 1990; 6: 480-8. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2228460 ).
Before analyzing any medical claim, it must therefore be remembered that it is these peer-reviewed published studies  that are used to develop drugs/vaccines/hi-tech procedures, most of which are incorporated within “scientifically-based” and legally enforceable  standards of care, all for the “good” of the People, for the “good” of trained medical staff, for the “good” of medical students, for the “good” of Science and for the “Greatness” of the Nation. And most of which destroys the very lifeblood of the Nation.
 On the other hand, most studies from holistic scientists and honest institutions around the globe are summarily dismissed because they are not “peer-reviewed” and they dont appear in a “credible” mainstream  conventional medical journal, if only because these studies either can’t afford tens of millions of dollars for clinical trials or are not conducive to the ramdomized double blind  “control” process and-or to the Conventional Medical Industry’s financial interests, neoliberal greed, obsessions and dogmas.

Worse, to attempt to divert attention from Conventional medicine’s horrors, errors and scientific flaws, many ((not all, just too many) of its expert MD & PHD authorities will loudly claim that integrative, functional, anthroposophic, holistic and any alternative medical system is or should be illegal. By its very nature, alternative medicine is indeed “heretical”, as it contests the status quo. While the Medical-Legal System’s nominated “papal” authorities have a choice to consider alternative & innovative thought as progressive, its experts more often than not see it as a threat to their privileges. Because the conventional mainstreamers in the health and legal fields have bestowed upon themselves the monopoly of coercion, its rulers enforce conventional medicine’s dictats with FDA machine guns when it raids alternative health clinics, inter alia, invoking that the alleged violator has “sinned” beyond forgiveness.

Simply put, for most of the neoliberal-conservative individuals who control the legal, medical and political systems, alternative medicine is by its very nature a “health fraud” and quackery animated by the “criminal intent” to enrich its proponents with “unproven and disproven” therapies that damages others. At the same time, the agitprop MD & PhD experts (ie, “agitprop”, or “agitation and propaganda” is a coercion machiavelian tool used by totalitarian rulers), often paid by the Medical-Pharmacological Industry, unceaselessly assert that conventional medicine is the only medical system that is based on real science and its “scientific method” based on proper experimentation.

This argument from conventional medicines’ attorneys is hinged on the fallacious idea that there is only one type of key “proven method”, what is called the “golden standard” that can qualify as the best scientifically-based “standard of care”, the one that is consistent with randomized double or triple blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial science, also known as randomized controled trials (RCT). In other words, for the mainstreamers of the status quo, Conventional Medicine and its scientific Research system is the only one that meets the “scientific objectivity” criterium in its purest “randomized” form, the “belief system” of which is opined as being the prevailing “truth” within the community of mainstream MDs & PhDs whose expert opinions decide most legal cases that involve medical law, in particular medical malpractice, violations of informed consent and health fraud.

While on the surface, this above-mentioned claim on what constitutes the key golden “standard of care”, may appear reasonable, in reality, placed in it’s socio-economic and ontological context, it becomes a deceptive marketing tool when used for most prescription drugs. (4) 

The Historic & Social Significance of the Radomized Control Trial and its Scientific and Clinical limitations  (15 minutes)

In today’s post-industrial society, this “Golden Scientific Standard” (the randomized controlled trial) that is used en mass for the alleged “benefit” of the masses may be seen as scientific progress, but in reality, it has become a Government sponsored convenient tool only the rich rulers (ie, those who make the rules, the 1 to 5 percent) can finance to medicate with toxic and often addictive drugs most patients while weeding out almost all of the “alternative” competition, in particular holistic medicine.

In effect, and the following is important to understand, holistic techniques like meditation, deep sleep, detox, juicing, clinical nutrition, aromatherapy saunas, trauma processing, hyperthermia, stress management, food, sun-therapy, wine sniffing, carreso-therapy and, inter alia, exercises by their very nature can’t be tested using this “Golden Scientific Standard” for the simple reason that holistic patients are aware of what they are doing when they are involved in the holistic healing process, so there can’t be any double or triple blind process, inter alia.

Similarly, we can’t use the RCT model for nutrition and even whole-food based supplements because the very biological reason nutrients are effective is because they are inserted within the right Nature-designed context where the whole is much more than the addition of parts. The RCT model is designed for single synthetic agents (i.e., technically poisons) that work on one biochemical pathway. But that’s not how biology works. The cannabinoid THC “high effect” will be mitigated by CBD and other cannabinoids while its anti-inflammatory effects will be potentiated when it is taken holistically. Same thing with the roots turmeric, ginger, burdock and just about all nutrients and foods. Isolate alcohol from wine and it becomes a poison. But in its righteous polyphenolic context, in small amounts, it is a medicine. Etcetera. In this perspective, we  need to be proactive to help ensure the public is not misinformed by the Government and its lackeys. See Thomas G. Guilliams, who addresses the many deficiencies of this model in “The Case is Closed: Editorial Bias Prevents Reasonable Evaluation of Dietary Supplements.” Evaluating supplements with drug study protocols as single agents is not scientifically valid for most nutrients. Virtually all nutrients are a part of complex systems. Research designs for agents that poison single enzymes make little sense when studying food and nutrients.

“….the studies that are designed to “prove” drug efficacy are wholly inadequate and inappropriate to evaluate the benefits of nutrients. We must be wary that the “evidence-based medicine” we once relied upon has now morphed into “medicine-based evidence” where drug companies set the rules and the FDA gladly enforces them”. (Source)

As a consequence, because randomized double or triple blind experimentation can’t be operational for most of holistic medicine, the one that is characterized by safety, efficiency and cost-friendliness, alternative medicine “necessarily” becomes dangerous woo woo quakery. The socio-economic significance of this phenomenon is that Conventional Medicine’s Golden Scientific Standard is less a scientific tool than a marketing tool to maximize cash-flow generating drugs or drug like substances, most of which are toxic, if only because  any  drug which is synthetic and defies the millions of years of evolutionary biology tends to be considered to be a foreign antigen by the body’s innate intelligence, an intelligence which prefers evolutionary-based synergy-producing molecules. Futhermore, assuming there were a miraculous molecule that could stop an advanced clot or cancer in its tracts with few if any toxic effects, it would be unethical to test this molecule on only half patients, leaving the other placobo half with an advanced clot or cancer, given the exponentially growth of these ailments.

While Conventional medicine and its prescription drugs and high-tech procedures can be helpful for a small portion of medicine, in particular for acute and emergency medicine where synthetic drugs, antibiotics, quick-fix surgeries and the like are more available than prevention and holistic medicine, for chronic diseases, the U.S. Government-sponsored symptom-based medicine tends to provoke more harm than restoration, especially for the longer term, even if there can be some symptomatic relief. (Source) (5) Yet another “unintended consequence” of government overreach ? Or a deliberate attempt to enrich corrupt lobbyists at the expense of the People health ? This talk will substantiate a few of these points. 

The History of American Medicine & its Research Engine (15 minutes)

Today, given the cancer that’s is eating away at the core of honest biomedical research, no talk on medicine and optimal longevity should be silent on the limitations of biomedical research. Thus, to better understand how so much reductionism, ideology, conflicts of interests, corruption and dangerous dogmas permeate the field of American public health and medicine, a brief review of different relevant phases of the History of American Medicine will be included in this Talk, in particular on how 19th and 20th centuries Conventional Medicine’s proponents and investors used market manipulation schemes as well as fraud, coercion, discriminatory practices, conspiracy and corruption with lawmakers, big business tycoons and politicians in order to destroy competition in the health arena and to prevail to the exclusion of other health professionals in medical schools, the Courts and the Government, the consequence of which is nothing less that the crippling, the acceletrated aging and the premature death of the Nation. (6) 

Thereafter, this talk will show how one of the key scientific methodologies that Conventional Medicine’s expert use and abuse, the Randomized Double Blind Clinical Trial Model (or Randomzed Control Trial, RCT) and its Conventional Biomedical Research system tend to promote epidemics of drug-related side or toxic effects while worsening most of today’s major chronic diseases, to the point where Conventional medicine has become one of the top causes (if not the top cause) of collective suffering, premature deaths and stress on the country’s public finances. (Source)

As the case of Semmelweis and many others show, Medical schools, prestigious Scientific Academies and Mainstream Research Institutes, including the NIH also have their own built-in biases, including, but not limited to the publication of university-based studies that are conducted for no other reason than false or hubristic pride and-or to give physicians and researchers qualifications for promotion or tenure, the consequences of which contribute in no uncertain way to the institutional “theft” of decades of healthy lifespans and hundreds of billions of “In God we Trust” green paper dollars that are un-necessarily spent by the vast majority of hard-working and-or stressed out Americans on the Government’s sponsored “food, water and medicine” system that tends to worsen vitality, long-term health and longevity outcomes while grossly enriching the country’s “One to Five Percent” and destroying the Nation’s resources as well as the “future Generation’s” basic right to Life and sustainability.

Understanding the Scientific Method and How to Navigate the Biomedical Research System & Determine Data Accuracy (20 minutes)

Thus, to fully understand (and apply) the Science of Longevity, good Medicine and the art of holistic reversal of chronic diseases and accelerated aging, it is useful to briefly review the Scientific method, its guiding hypothetic-deductive system of reasoning as well as its concomitant experimentation & quantification modalities, its general principles, including but not limited to the experimentation’s reproducibility and predictability value, to its limitations as well as to the deceptive manoeuvres conventional medicine researchers and public official experts use to self-servingly spin and falsify results in order to increase cash-flow with new drugs. In this perspective, serious wilfull data omission coming from both vaccine and drug RCTs are more common than thought. So common in the vaccine field that the Government’s two parties lawmakers enacted a statute that immunes vaccine makers from liability.

We will also lists some practical measures we can take to evaluate the reliability of medical research, some of which is based on the book Doctoring Data by Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, a classic in the field of flawed medical researchIn the realm of heuristic knowledge and truth-seeking, mindful humility, proper brain and body sustenance, diligent curiosity, intellectural rigor, strong integrity and, as Einstein suggested, creative imagination are key.

In addition, we will look at other evidentiary modalities than RCT to ascertain scientific validity, from observational, prospective, epidemiological, interventional, retrospective & prospective cohort and case-control studies and, among others, petri-dish evidence and, among other research techniques, meta-regression analyses, meta-analyses, and trial sequential analyses. We will conclude with a word of the scientific validity of extrapolating test-tube and animals studies onto humans and assessing bias in published studies.

Case in Point. Synergy versus Isolated Nutrients

One of the best ways to understand why most published nutritional studies in Conventional Medicine are not helpful is precisely because the only nutrients that interests the Industry and conventional  research are isolated nutrients, thanks to which they can be synthesized and patented for cash flow. However, contrarily to whole foods,  isolated nutrients act like drugs with side toxic effects. Even many dietary supplements that are considered healthy by integrative doctors can have deleterious effects. Consider the findings of the effects of beta carotene and alpha-tocopherol supplements on lung cancer.

“We found no reduction in the incidence of lung cancer among male smokers after five to eight years of dietary supplementation with alpha-tocopherol or beta carotene. In fact, this trial raises the possibility that these supplements may actually have harmful as well as beneficial effects”. (Source)

In effect, those taking the pills got more lung cancer than those who didn’t, and there were more deaths from lung cancer, heart disease, and stroke, and a shorter average lifespan overall. This didn’t stop them from trying it over and over again, though. Six more studies were performed, and beta-carotene pills continued to increase mortality.

“Conclusions: Beta-carotene and vitamin E in doses higher than the RDA seem to significantly increase mortality, whereas we lack information on vitamin A. Dose of vitamin A was significantly associated with increased mortality in meta-regression”.(Source)

In a compilation of 20 other studies in which they gave beta-carotene and other antioxidant supplements, mortality was also significantly increased. As one study suggested: “An obvious conclusion is that isolated nutrients are drugs, but not studied or regulated as drugs, and perhaps they should be”. (Source)

If they are patented synthetic isolate nutrients, the Happiness Medicine Institute partially agrees. But without the obligation to ask one’s doctor for a synthetic dietary supplementation prescription, as this would further erode medical freedoms. The best would be for the FDA to enforce the principle of full disclosure in big letters so that patients will be able to read the long toxic (side) effects of synthetic isolated-nutrients packed in a dietary supplement. 

On the other hand, as we will see as this Seminar unfolds, organic wholesome foods rich in beta carotene and tocopherols (vitamin E) do significantly reduce the risks of not only cancer, but all chronic diseases. This is because biology and nutrition work via synergy where the  whole food is greater than the sum of its parts. And yes, randomized double blind studies can’t be performed on holistic nutrition because the eater knows what he or she is enjoying. Hence, Conventional Medicine’s claim that clinical nutrition is either disproved or unproved constitutes essentially a research fraud.

 The French & Holistic Approach to Health (15 minutes)

“The fixity of the milieu supposes a perfection of the organism such that the external variations are at each instant compensated for and equilibrated. Therefore, far from being indifferent to the external world, the higher animal is on the contrary constrained in a close and responsive relation with it, of such fashion that its equilibrium results from a continuous and delicate compensation established as if by the most sensitive of balances.” (Professeur Claude Bernard)

Dr. Claude Bernard of nineteenth-century France is considered even in the mainstream as the “Father of Experimental Medicine.” Bernard maintained that disease could be caused by a breakdown of the self-regulating mechanisms of the body. In Bernard’s lifetime the germ theory of disease, proposed by Pasteur and others, captured the imagination of doctors as well as the general public. Significant advances in medicine took place in the early years of microbiology, and Bernard’s idea that disease might be caused by faulty regulation of the internal environment, including its microbiota, was largely ignored. Béchamps was also of Bernard’s opinion, but like Marie Curie a century later, Pasteur, the father of the germ theory, prevailed.

And to this day, conventional medicine experts, especially in the United States, continue to ignore both Hipporates and Bernard’s contribution to medicine favoring the almight prescription drug and surgery pad. Since Pasteur’s time, many French doctors have embraced the “bioterrain” paradigm, to such a degree that today, over half of French medical doctors are also homeopaths and over 98 percent of them almost always recommend to weakened patients three weeks vacations spa retreats with good food,  wine and fun, holistic techniques that epigenetically expresse the body’s metabolic excellence. 

As we will see in the second day of this Seminar’s workshop, much of today’s chronic diseases are based on dysfunctions in immunity, inflammation, and infection. This discussion from the viewpoint of Science started in 19th Century France with many scientists, some of whom had heated debates in Paris’ salon coffeeshops and haschish cafés, a custom brought back from Egypt by Napoleon himself. One of these, Dr. Claude Bernard, demonstrated beyond any reasonable doubt with myriad experimentations (so many that his wife got upset) that our internal environment dictated our health. Today, this conclusion has been recently confirmation via the Government’s NIH’s microbiome project of 2008, close to two centuries after the French relevant discoveries.

We therefore have today the conclusive proof that Bernard and Béchamps were right. Even  Dr. Louis Pasteur’s scientific intuition and empirical observation (incuding with his own dying body) made him say on his deathbed that Béchamps and Bernard were right. “The seed is nothing, the soil is everything.” Yet, the so called Science experts at the Government’s NIH continue to propagate the propaganda that synthetic patented multi-billion dollars drugs  are the best scientifically proven “standards of care”,  what they call the “golden standards”, even if these “golden billion dollars” prescription drugs kill hundreds of thousands of Americans each year. (Source). (6 a)

In this short talk, we will define the hippocratic, French and Holistic approach to Medicine. (6 b)

Break for Lunch

Culinary, Essential Oils & Wine Demonstration (30 minutes, in the Community building’s kitchen)

“Wine can be a poison, a food or a medicine depending on  the dosage” Paracelsus

Because Science shows that moderate to small amounts of quality wine is a “fundamental to both health and longevity, we will demonstrate the best ways to use this medicinal elixir. And yes, peer-reviewed published studies confirm the pervalence of more chronic diseases and early death risks when wine is  not consumed versus when quality wine is consumed regularly and in small amounts. Criticizing wine by saying it is “alcohol” is like condemning spinash because there is some arsenic in it. In the same way that spinash’s small amounts of arsenic gives spinash its Popeye power, in the same way, wine’s alcohol potentiates all of wine’s thousands of healthy and longevity phyto-nutrients and longevity molecules while helping to thin the blood thereby avoiding the number one killer, cardio-vascular diseases. As Paracelsus said over two thousands years ago, it’s all in the dosage, to which we can add quality and timing. Too much wine will obviously harm the liver, the brain and other organs, but in the right proportion and context, wine can be a powerful medicine, just like essential oils, sunlight, exercises,  botanicals, caloric restriction, food, poetry and the like.

This Demonstration will also teach how to use essential oils. French-invented, modern aromatherapy (founded by René-Maurice Gottefaussé & Vanet) has been taught in France for over a century, thanks to which, with other international contributions, we now know how to best use plant volatile essential oils and their blends for the optimization of mood, detox, immune-boosting and many other conditions and diseases via their incorporation in water, food, air, land (as natural insecticides),  massage, suppository and, among other modalities and exceptionally, intravenously.

Thereafter, we will demonstrate how to optimize certain foods (using plants, herbs, flowers, roots, mushrooms and the like) via the making of a longevity dish that comes from either the Mediterranean Diet, the Vegan Diet and-or the Rawfood Whole-Plant diet. These three diets can all be holistically beneficial for healthy lifespans, depending on the person’s growth, lifestyle, environment and genes. Although the Ketogenic, Paleo and other alternative diets are popular these days, and can be useful short term in order to mitigate the MAD biochemical assault (Mad = modern American diet), this Seminar will debunk most of the keto-paleo-atkins diets and other health claims in terms of long term health maintenance and adapted replenishment, notwithstanding a few exceptions regarding nutritional ketosis. (*)

Example: Raw Superfoods Longevity Smoothie: Making a Longevity smoothie that can help to both detoxify and nourish the body at the cellular level: Made from quality superfoods, we could prepare either a velvety soup-smoothie or a vegan guacamole or a detox-boost green & root juice, made from herbs, roots like maca and ginger (ginger greatly helps with intestinal motility and the immune system) mushrooms, plants, pomegranate and the like. A raw vegan chocolate mousse is another option as is a raw vanilla custard made from soaked nuts, coconut, psyllium, chia seeds,  flax, avocados, dates and more. Methylating, anti-inflammatory and nitric oxide promoting soups made from beets, cabbage, garlic, tumeric, tomatos, pomegranate, mushrooms, nuts, herbs and more can also be possible.

Afternoon Session

Dental Holistic Care and Conventional Toxic Dentistry (30 minutes)

Because the present conventional dentistry standards of care are connected to chronic diseases and accelerated aging, this talk will review some of the key holistic measures that can avoid toxic dentistry, including but not limited to healing early-mid cavity decay with holistic savoir-faire techniques, detoxing via oil pulling, home-made essential oil mouthwash, safe mercury-amalgam removal protocols, biocompatible dental material, avoiding endocrine disrupting leaching chemicals like BPA from different dental components (e.g., including, but not limited to sealants), using ozone, lasers that can replace the “drill & fill” technique and more. Implants with one’s own dental stem cells is already operational, but the conventional dentistry system is hindering it’s full clinical availability while the Government’s NIH still refuses to finance studies on mercury’s devastating health effects, all of which are fully supported by hard evidence from hundreds of peer reviewed studies that can be found in the international scientific literature.

Given the US’s peridontal infection epidemic (over 65 percent of teeth loss is due to gum disease and over 90 percent of Americans have some form of gum disease) as well as the toxic heavy metal poisoning pandemic (including, but not limited to mercury and industrial fluoride), the root canal aberration (i.e. leaving a dead tooth in the body is medically insane), avoidable cavitations, galvo-currents and more, biological and holistic dentistry is a necessary tool to consider if the workshopee is serious about optimizing a healthy lifespans to 120 year and beyond. Likewise with new technologies like laser and 3 D cone beam scans that can detect serious infections and tooth abcesses that digital scans and x-rays miss. Included in this power point talk will be couple case studies of cancer and cardiac cases being resolved once dental problems were holistically fixed.

The Reversal of Alzheimer’s Disease & Depression with Holistic Savoir Faire (Gut Restoration & Detox Medicine) (40 minutes)

It remains impossible to achieve a healthy 120 years when serious mental disorders hit. Today over half of Americans who reach 85 will get an Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis. For those with the APOE 4 gene, the risk factors are higher and strike earlier. Conventional Medicine has postulated that the major culprit is  the beta amyloid plaque. Yet, after over 30 years, not one of these anti amyloidal drugs made a difference in terms of safely and efficiently treating this disease. (Source) The amyloid plaque did shrink, but from the viewpoint of holsitic science, that is irrelevant. Holistic scientists have known for decades that the amyloid plaque is not the cause of Alzheimer’s Disease. (7) The amyloid plaque, just like the arterial plaque, is a defense mechanism against other deeper causes that conventional medicine misses or refuses to investigate. The evidence shows that this beta amyloidosis arises in order to protect the brain from toxins, heavy metals like mercury and even molds (mycotoxins). (Source). Likewise with the tao proteins and Neurofibillary tangles. All of these epiphenomena are results that come from a key phenomenon that conventional Research is not interested in, given it’s lack of financial incentive. Similarly, depression is an inflammatory disease that is connected to the overall health including gut dysbiosis. In clear, as we will see in this power point presentation, the brain’s innate intelligence puts in place defense mechanisms in order to mitigate the assaults of toxins, allopathic drugs and heavy metals, including loads of mercury that are still systematically placed right under the brain, in the oral cavity’s teeth where mercury vapors are able to cross the blood brain barrier and accumulate therein.

In this talk, we will thus show how to reverse Alzheimer’s and other mental disorders with holistic techniques. Because toxemia affects the inter-related gastro-intestinal system as much as the brain, safe and efficient holistic gut restoration techniques will also be examined including, but not limited to PH correction, bile & digestive enzyme secretion, insuline (glycemic variability) regulation, microbiota diversity, liver optimization, tastebuds sensitization and nose receptors activation, neurogenesis and, among other gut-brain issues, mastication, saliva balance, bowel movement, leaky gut & leaky brain fixing, colon cleaning and chrono-biology. (8)

Hands-on Playful Longevity Techniques (30 minutes)

“It’s not because we are old that we don’t play, it’s because we don’t play that we get old” (George Bernard Shaw)

To these corrective and balancing techniques, we will teach hands-on exercises to optimally breath, move, meditate, see and activate key energy fields, including via acu-pressure, EFT, reflexology, aromatherapy, sophrology and more. If time allows, we will also delve into evaluation techniques like muscle testing (kinesiology), Chinese nail and tongue testing, stool & urine analysis, psycho-morphology and facial diagnosis, metabolic body types assessment, ear lobe examination (that can help to predict coronary crises), alternate nostril breathing, HRV support and other holistic tools like organoleptic testing that can assist us in pinpointing warning signs, some of which can be as useful as genetic and biochemical tests given their relevance, simplicity and immediacy.

Holistic Nutrition, Gastroenterology, Weight Management & Toxic Conventional Diets (30 minutes)

What is the Best Diet for Energy Production, Memory Maintenance, Hormonal Optimization, Tissue & DNA repair and Cancer-Free Long Lifespans to 120 Years ?

The Internet, bookstores and libraries are replete with nutritional claims that are often contradictory and scientifically spinned or biased, including, but not limited to dash-paleo-keto high-fat, mid-animal proteins, low-carb, high-calorie schools diets which tend to be inflammatory and deleterious for long term health and longervity. On the other hand, anti-inflammatory plant-based, high fiber, high bitters, mid vegan fats, low protein, low calorie and high low-glycemic carbs ancestral diets tend to avoid chronic diseases and optimize longevity, including the mostly plant-based Mediteranean diet, as long as this diet has a low amount of clean quality animal foods, including raw organic honey and wild small clean fish. But diets that include more than 3 to 10 percent animal foods (depending on the person’s gene pool) and-or have loads of processed foods tend to be deleteriously inflammatory and, inter alia, toxic to human kidneys. (9)  In other words,  as Michael Polene put it, the available evidence suggests that Evolutionary Biology formed humans to be “mostly plant-based” eating fresh, whole and clean foods.

Outside of this general principle, everything else in nutrition is a matter of uniqueness insofar as genetic, environmental and cultural variations are concerned. A grain of barley or black beans can be allergic and cross reactive for one type of immune sensitive person while wild fish with barley or ancient organic wheat like kamut or even spelt (“épeautre”, a popular French grain) with a small glass of quality or organic wine can be nourishing and even healing (ie, anti-inflammatory and non reactive) for someone else.

“The Paleo-Keto-Mediterranean-Vegan-Caloric Restriction-Diet Variation” Debate

In this perspective, the new American craze with the paleo-keto diet defies nutritional logic and evolutionary biology, if only because the side or toxic effects of this animal-based diet outweigh its benefits, especially in the long term and it has few if any arguments that are consistent with evolutionary biology, including on ketones being the only second energy fuel. There are three, not two  fuels the body uses, glucose, ketones and the forgotten lactate. (Source) But the primary one remains glucose, the more wholesome, the better. Furthermore, there are multiple ways the body achieves, when physiologically needed, a ketonic state (i.e. including fasting, exercising and  nut-based veganism) without feeding it an abundance of animal fat and bacteria-rich animal flesh that are deprived of fiber, polyphenols and antioxydants while being inflammatory and messing up the Microbiota’s balance, to the point of producing plaque clogging material, inter alia.

The mainstream Keto-Paleo recommendation to ditch wholesome organic “sugary” fruits or healthy grains like organic rice or yams for a piece of a pig’s fat-rich rear-end (ie, ham) or for a piece of chicken (Darwin’s number one vertebra species winner) to produce “an alternative clean ancestral ketonic fuel” that purportedly will do everything from curing diabetes to resolving obesity, cancer and heart diseases misrepresents the facts. (9 a) Even our primate cousins the chimpanzees and bonobos, who share 98.6 percent of  human genes, will choose and relish oranges more than any winged chicken or wild pig (boar). We may show an extract of a video on this.

The first Part of this talk will thus show the compelling evidence that supports the best “across the board” nutrition plans that are consistent with general principles of the Science of Optimal Longevity, the Engine of evolutionary biology and gastroenterology.

The Second part of this Discussion will go into specific and customized or personalized dietary recommendations according to different categories of adults, geographical differences and genetic variabilities. This talk will focus on the category of Americans who are in their 40s and beyond. With age, there are certain nutrients that are not as well absorbed and synthesized, if only because of toxemia, nutritional havoc and stress accumulation (stress favors cortisol production to the detriment of the other key hormones).

While there are hundreds of other important holistique techniques and lifestyle conditions, biochemically, holistic nutrition is powerful in that it upregulates and improves the expression of thousands and thousands of genes that no drug can and it does this without the toxic effects of  Big Pharma’s drugs, it balances dozens and dozens of hormones, optimizes tens of thousands of protein networks, reduces inflammation, infections and accelerated aging, optimizes neurotransmitters, peptides and just about everything the body needs for survival and tissue repair, including, but not limited to the microbiome 2.4 million genes that cross-talk to our own 23,000 eukaryotic human genes.

Key Check-up and Monitoring Tests (15 minutes)

“The eyes truly are unique real estate (…) They’re the only place in the body where you can see a bare nerve, a bare artery, and a bare vein without doing any cutting. And the disease processes we see occurring in the eye are probably occurring in the rest of the body.” (Andrew Iwach, MD, associate clinical professor of ophthalmology at the University of California San Francisco) 

In general, just like with automobiles, there are five general basic key media where we can check vital signs and the state of the diseased tissue (I.e. or energy blockage in Chinese medicine): These are the saliva, blood, urine, hair and stool. There are also five sensory organs that can help the health professional to determine a correct diagnosis. (9 c)

In this power-point talk, we will thus delved into some of the most important holistic, functional, integrative and allopathic tests that can be done to determine health and disease status, (diagnosis) to monitor disease progression (prognosis) and to evaluate the safety and efficiency of treatment plans. (10)

Of all of our preferred organ analysis, we have a penchant for the eyes as a general biomarker. Just as much a “window” of the soul as a window of multiple chronic diseases, the eyes’ vitreous fluid is clear and we can look through the opening in the iris and see the blood vessels quite easily. Decades ago in medical schools, we were  taught to look with the ophthalmoscope as part of the general exam. Sadly, it’s not done by most practitioners.  Even arthritis and cancer can be seen via a look into the eyes. (Source)

With eyes exams, we can also diagnose conditions like multiple sclerosis, leukemia, and brain tumors. If one looks at the brain, two-thirds of it is dedicated to some aspect of vision. The retina is actually a piece of the brain that has grown into the eye and processes neural signals when it detects light.(Source) Ganglion cells carry information from the retina to the higher brain centers. Other nerve cells within the retina perform the first stages of analysis of the visual world. The axons of the retinal ganglion cells, with the support of other types of cells, form the optic nerve and carry these signals to the brain. (Source)

Alzheimer’s Disease is yet another condition that can also be detected via the eyes. Formations visible in the lens of the eye portend Alzheimer’s disease based on a Harvard Medical School study published in 2003. (cf. Goldstein L, Muffat J, Cherny R, et al. Cytosolic β-amyloid deposition and supranuclear cataracts in lenses from people with Alzheimer’s disease. Lancet. 2003;361:1258-1265). In this perspective, Harvard experts performed detailed research to determine the connection between the lens of the eye and the brain, and the presence of beta amyloid protein, the hallmark (biomarker) in tissues of both. Some of the key findings included the following: The Alzheimer’s protein is found outside the brain, and in particular is found in the eye. The amount of beta amyloid (Alzheimer’s protein) found in the brain matched the amount found in the lens of the eye. (10 a)

We will also quickly look at dozens of biomarker lab tests that can unmask underlying chronic conditions that are not yet symptomatic. Although proactive prevention is key in health, most people don’t get motivated to have a proactive & prventive holistic lifestyle until the “proof of the pudding” via lab tests and-or organ failure corroborate threatening signs and painful symptoms. In integrative medicine, we have dozens and dozens  of the  tests, but they can be quite expensive and many are not reimbursed by insurance companies. This section will thus look at the most important ones and even go into a few free tests that can be done by the patient (i.e., via en educated examination of the ears, the eyes, tongue, poop, urine, smell, pelvic gait, temperature and more).

Lastest Breakthroughs in Advanced Cancer Research

 Optimizing the Cancer Reversal Code: a precondition to Optimal Longevity (10 minutes)

In this last session of the day, we will discuss, in a nutshell, some of the new theoretical cancer breakthroughs that make us understand more and more this State-promoted and People-dreaded  social disease we call cancer. With  a clearer understanding of cancer’s many mechanisms of action and its thirst for “eternal cellular replications”, a holistic scientist can outsmart cancer by teaching the patient how to switch off the expression of  cancer’s  oncogenes that put up a resilient protein-based conquest and inflammatory strategy to subdue its host. Even better, a holistic oncologist will know how to activate the longevity and tumor suppressor genes that will put in place new defense networks and  reinforce the entire body’s immune clean-up system.  Just like in war, to fight cancer with conventional weapons makes cancer stronger and more virulent, what is medically called “chemo-resistent”, the evidence is compelling on this question. (Source) .

On the other hand, holistic oncology outperforms conventional oncology on all fronts and decisively, (Source) but because holistic oncology can’t use or even pay for the RCT trials, the conventional oncology authorities and their lackey judges will declare that holistic oncology is “unproven” and therefore not legal, if only because it will be constitutive of a “loss of chance” with conventional oncology’s expensive and dubious weapons of mass cellular destruction.  (10 b)

In this short talk, we will show how to restore the body’s hijacked immune-surveillance mechanisms and revitalize the entire metabolism so that cancer can’t grow and in many cases, starts to shrink within 3 to 5 weeks. The evidence shows that these results for most cancers can be acomplished with0ut the use of Conventional Oncology’s violent and expensive modalities (e.g.. cytotoxic (poison) chemo, surgical & traumatizing knife and devastating ionic & carcinogenic radiation, let alone its more recent targeted monoclonal antibodies, signaling inhibitors, genetic interventions and immunotherapeutics). As Pasteur belatedly admitted, it’s all in the soil, the bioterrain. Key tests and some of the latest best holistic protocols will be reviewed including new findings with focused sound therapy. At Day three, we will finish and complete what was not finishied in this present Session. See below Day three at the end of the workshop.

Conclusion  with Q & A: (15 minutes)

“And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” (Genesis 6:3: King James Version)

In addition to the benefits of extended lifespans, Longevity Research by ricochet can also be useful insofar as age-related diseases are concerned, as many longevity techniques also help to rejuvenate damaged tissues of those who have had strokes, heart attacks and neurodegeneration diseases like Alzheimers. A.L.S. and Parkinson Disease, all of which helps to alleviate suffering while extending lifespans  and helping to reduce the overall costs of many debilitating chronic diseases.

In this Seminar’s conclusion, we will summarize the key constituent elements that determine the aging process as well as the state of the Research the Silicon Valley billionaires and biogerontology institutes throughout the world are investing in, including a few clinical trials on life extension. We will also formulate a statement as to what ongoing lifespan exploratory avenues appear to be the most  realistic and promising. And we will briefly invoke a few simple holistic techniques to help workshopees with. Thereafter, the Seminar is open to questions, answers and comments.

Seminar Two: The Praxis of Optimal Longevity (8 Hours)

(Schedule: During the Summer or Fall of 2018, not sure yet)

From Traditional Clinical Pearls to Recent Innovative Breakthroughs

“Keep a quiet heart, Sit like a tortoise, Walk sprightly like a pigeon, Sleep like a dog”  (Longevity advise from Li Ching-Yuen. Li was a mountain herbalist & a wine enthusiast who seemingly lived to 197 years. (Source))

Introduction (30 minutes)

In Day Two’s Introduction, we will cover different health models in relation to the recognized health sciences and explain why the Holistic model to medicine is clinically superior to the mainstream model. In this perspective, this introduction will invoke two examples to show why the holistic model is clinically superior to the mainstream medical model, these are the metabolic syndrome and non alcohol fatty liver disease (NAFLD).

Fine-tuning the Mitigation and Reversal of Accelerated Aging and its concomitant chronic diseases with Holistic Savoir-Faire (4.5 hours)

The substance of Day Two will delve into the body’s major physiological systems, the analysis of which will include the latest Research on how to modulate (ie, tune-up = clean-up + optimizing) these bodily systems and their aging hallmarks so that they can be fine-tuned to reach 120 years and beyond.

Today, it’s difficult to attain the supercenteranian birth-right status when the majority of humans are confronted with chronic stress and unending chronic disease epidemics, if only because any chronic delibitating condition will accelerate aging and lead to premature death. While some chronic conditions are less stressful than others, any chronic stress that comes from a chronic disease is not fun and compromises the smooth evolutionary flow of the aging process. And without Joie de Vivre (enjoyment of Life), it remains difficult to upregulate (activate) all of the longevity pathways. Thus, in this Second Day, we will address the following bodily systems as they are also closely related to one’s ability to reach 120 years in good shape.

Screen Shot 2017-09-18 at 4.42.53 PM

Addressing how Holistic  & Happiness Medicine can successfully resolve most of the Disorders coming from the below-mentioned Physiological systems

1. Cardiovascular pathways and their common disorders, including, but not limited to heart attacks, strokes, aortic stenosis, high blood pressure, arterial plaque and more. Contrary to mainstream cardiology, holistic medicine can reverse most cardiovascular diseases with simple Holistic techniques, including by addressing oral health, heavy metals & toxins via detoxification and the intestines. Real cases of cardiovascular disease reversals via holistic interventions will be presented.

If these holistic standards were applied, the cardiology industry as it is practiced today would go bankrupt within weeks. Stents, bypass surgeries, statins, blood pressure lowering drugs and many other cardiology practices, while sometimes useful for emergencies, are so laden with toxic effects and  misguided symptom suppression tactics that the body can’t self-heal as it was designed to. Worse, mainstream cardiology physicians end up killing most of their patients. The evidence is overwhelming. We will conclude this  section with a succinct guide to the fundamentals of Holistic Cardiovascular Tune-up.

2. Neurological pathways and their common disorders, including, but not limited to depression, Alzheimers & Parkinson diseases, ADD, bipolar, autism, schizophrenia and, among others, predatory narcissistic disorder, which is  both rampant among most of the “one percent” of individuals who are spearheading the sick-care and sick country system of things and difficult to reverse. Real cases of neurological disease reversals via holistic interventions will be presented. Contrarily to mainstream dogma, the growth of new brain cells (called neurogenesis, especially in the hippocampus), neuro-plasticity (neurons correctly communicating with each other) and neuro-redifferentation thrive with holistic medicine, while they atrophy with mainstream neurology.

If neurology holistic standards were practiced, neurologists and psychiatrists (i.e., the number one group who commits suicides) would go even more bananas and their pharmaceutical allies would go bankrupt within weeks. The evidence is overwhelming. We will conclude this  section with a succinct guide to the fundamentals of Holistic Neurology Tune-up.

3. Immune system pathways and their common disorders, including, but not limited to cancer, autoimmune diseases (like Celiac Disease, Juvenile Diabetes, Hashimoto Disease of the Thyroid,  M.S., Lupus, Psoriasis, Colitis and, among over one hundred others, Rheumatoid arthritis) and infections like the rampant lyme-borreliosis challenge (Lyme bacteria is called the “great mimicker” and hides from immune cells’ surveillance machinery). To these immune dysfunctions, a word on nosocomial infections is needed as these complications are acquired in mainstream hospitals-clinics, the processes of which causes more than 400,000 Americans to unnecessarily die each year, so a few power point slides on this topic are justified and all the more so that many of these hospital deaths could be avoided in situ (in the hospital) with holistic interventions. Real cases of autoimmune, infection and cancer reversals via holistic interventions will be presented.

If these holistic techniques were better known and executed, the entire + 100 billion dollars auto-immunity industry would go bankrupt within weeks.  The evidence is overwhelming. We will conclude this  section with a succinct guide to the fundamentals of Holistic Immune-modulation Tune-up.

4. Hormonal pathways and common endocrine disorders, including, but not limited to diabetes 1, 1.5, 2 & 3 as well as other disorders affecting the thyroid, pancreas, adrenals and, among others, dysfunctions relative to the reproductive organs and different neuropeptides and hormonal axes disorders involving the pituitary-thyroid-thymus-adrenal-gonads circuit. Because most of conventional medicine keeps intervening downstream and symptomatically, most hormonal issues can not be durably fixed. Bio-identical hormones that are used in integrative medicine constitutes a step toward progress, but only a tiny step as this intervention sends the signals for the body to shut down it’s own endocrine regenerative process. That’s why we firmly opine that holistic interventions may be the best of all remedical modalities as they help to restore the body’s own endocrine’s glands’ bio-chemicals and signaling molecules. For example, bestowing exogenous testosterone, even “bio-identical” ones, on a low T. patient promotes the shrinkage of the testes and circulatory issues, inter alia. While most  American integrative endocrinologists and sexologists don’t seem to care about the shrinking size of the patient’s testicules (among other things), holistic individuals, especially French health practitioners and patients do. Real cases of hormonal related  disease reversals via holistic interventions will be presented.

If these holistic techniques were better known and executed, today’s endocrinology industry would go bankrupt within weeks.  The evidence is overwhelming. We will conclude this  section with a succinct guide to the fundamentals of Holistic EndocrinologyTune-up.

5. Gastrointestinal pathways and their common disorders, including intestinal permeability (leaky gut syndrome, a pervasive pathology mainstream physicians have been denying, at least until recently for most of them), colitis, ulcers, acid-reflex or GERD issues, ulcers, indigestion & bloating, SIBO and more. Among dozens of examples, prescribing proton pump inhibitors to patients with GERD is so damaging on multiple health fronts that this practice should be malpractice.

If we have time, we will look at one of gastroenterology’s relevant branches, called Hepatology, or what is known as hepatobiliary medicine, that which encompasses the study of the liver, pancreas, and the biliary tree. In this realm, one of the most absurd practices in the United States is this quasi-systematic removal of the bile-distributing gallbladder. While there may be emergency cases, most gallbladder issues can and should be resolved with holistic medicine because of the bile’s importance, even if the Liver still makes it. Likewise with the removal of the useful tonsils, the transplanting of the liver and many other organs and of course, the damaging C-sections Amercian surgeons make billions from, while promoting life-long illnesses (i.e., when babies dont go through the vaginal canal , they don’t get the full blast of mother’s immune-building bacteria, inter alia, on the contrary, they get the hospitals bacteria etcetera with some ad nauseum). Real cases will be examined as well as holisic corrective techniques.

If these holistic techniques were better known and executed, the gastroenterology industry would go bankrupt within weeks. The evidence is overwhelming. We will conclude this  section with a succinct guide to the fundamentals of Holistic Gastroenterology Tune-up.

6. Musculoskeleton pathways and their common disorders, including but not limited to osteo-arthritis, hip and knee issues, back and neck pain, sciatica and more. Of all chronic diseases, progressive degenerative joint disease is one of the most challenging. Real cases will be examined as well as holistic corrective techniques and integrative medicine’s stem cell therapies. 

If these holistic techniques were better known and executed, the musculskeleton industry would have to change standards of care and accumulate less cash-flow. (eg, 60k for a hip replacement versus 5 k for stem cell therapy). The evidence is overwhelming. We will conclude this  section with a succinct guide to the fundamentals of Holistic Musculo-skeleton Tune-up.

7. Respiratory pathways and their common disorders, including, but not limited to COPD, asthma and emphysema. Real cases will be examined as well as holistic corrective techniques. 

If these holistic techniques were better known and executed, the Pulmonology medicine industry would have to change standards of care and accumulate less cash-flow. The evidence is overwhelming. We will conclude this  section with a succinct guide to the fundamentals of Holistic Pulmonology Tune-up.

Hands-on Playful Longevity Techniques (1 Hour)

“It’s not because we are old that we don’t play, it’s because we don’t play that we get old” (George Bernard Shaw)

To these corrective and balancing techniques, we will teach hands-on exercises to optimally breath, move, meditate, see and activate key energy fields, including via acu-pressure, EFT, reflexology, aromatherapy, sophrology and more. If time allows, we will also delve into evaluation techniques like muscle testing (kinesiology), Chinese nail and tongue testing, stool & urine analysis, psycho-morphology and facial diagnosis, metabolic body types assessment, ear lobe examination (that can help to predict coronary crises), alternate nostril breathing, HRV support and other holistic tools like organoleptic testing that can assist us in pinpointing warning signs, some of which can be as useful as genetic and biochemical tests given their relevance, simplicity and immediacy.

Culinary, Essential Oils & Wine Demonstration (1 Hour)

“Wine can be a poison, a food or a medicine depending on  the dosage” Paracelsus

Because Science shows that moderate to small amounts of quality wine is a “fundamental to both health and longevity, we will demonstrate the best ways to use this medicinal elixir. And yes, peer-reviewed published studies confirm the pervalence of more chronic diseases and early death risks when wine is  not consumed versus when quality wine is consumed regularly and in small amounts. Criticizing wine by saying it is “alcohol” is like condemning spinash because there is some arsenic in it. In the same way that spinash’s small amounts of arsenic gives spinash its Popeye power, in the same way, wine’s alcohol potentiates all of wine’s thousands of healthy and longevity phyto-nutrients and longevity molecules while helping to thin the blood thereby avoiding the number one killer, cardio-vascular diseases. As Paracelsus said over two thousands years ago, it’s all in the dosage, to which we can add quality and timing. Too much wine will obviously harm the liver and other organs, but in the right proportion and context, wine can be a powerful medicine, just like essential oils, sunlight, exercises,  botanicals, food, poetry and the like.

This Demonstration will also teach how to use essential oils. French-invented, modern aromatherapy (founded by René-Maurice Gottefaussé & Vanet) has been taught in France for over a century, thanks to which, with other international contributions, we now know how to best use plant volatile essential oils and their blends for the optimization of mood, detox, immune-boosting and many other conditions and diseases via their incorporation in water, food, air, land (as natural insecticides),  massage, suppository and, among other modalities and exceptionally, intravenously.

Thereafter, we will demonstrate how to optimize certain foods (using plants, herbs, flowers, roots, mushrooms and the like) via the making of a longevity dish that comes from either the Mediterranean Diet, the Vegan Diet and-or the Rawfood Whole-Plant diet. These three diets can all be holistically beneficial for healthy lifespans, depending on the person’s growth, lifestyle, environment and genes. Although the Ketogenic, Paleo and other alternative diets are popular these days, and can be useful short term in order to mitigate the MAD biochemical assault (Mad = modern American diet), this Seminar will debunk most of the keto-paleo-atkins diets and other health claims in terms of long term health maintenance and adapted replenishment, notwithstanding a few exceptions regarding nutritional ketosis. (*)

Example: Raw Superfoods Longevity Smoothie: Making a Longevity smoothie that can help to both detoxify and nourish the body at the cellular level: Made from quality superfoods, we could prepare either a velvety soup-smoothie or a vegan guacamole or a detox-boost green & root juice, made from herbs, roots like maca and ginger (ginger greatly helps with intestinal motility and the immune system) mushrooms, plants, pomegranate and the like. A raw vegan chocolate mousse is another option as is a raw vanilla custard made from soaked nuts, coconut, psyllium, chia seeds,  flax, avocados, dates and more. Methylating, anti-inflammatory and nitric oxide promoting soups made from beets, cabbage, garlic, tumeric, tomatos, pomegranate, mushrooms, nuts, herbs and more can also be possible.

 Medical Law: a weapon of malbeing, a tool for wellbeing or a means for optimal longevity ? (30 minutes)

Analysis of the Failure of the American Legal System to protect  the People’s Health Rights and Fundamental Freedoms and on how to navigate it so that physical, mental and social wellbeing prevail

“The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.”  – (source A, source B) Arnold Seymour Relman (1923-2014), Harvard Professor of Medicine and Former Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal

Hard epidemiological and statistical evidence suggests that iatrogenic pathways activation (iatrogenesis = diseases caused my medicine) has killed millions of Americans while generating hundreds of billions of fresh, green “in God we Trust” paper dollars to those individuals who willingly manipulated the system in order to maximize massive profits from the sick-care Industries. (12)

While the American legal system may appear on the surface to be equipped with the tools to establish fair procedures, “justice for all” (including on behalf of millions of injured patients) and the respect of international health norms, the reality is that for the vast majority of medmal legal cases, when plaintiff patients get to have their “day in court” (under 5 percent of medmal cases that are filed), the American legal system shows almost as much bias, flaw and oppression as its medical or sick-care system, which corroborates one of Molière’s and Socrate’s observations on the macabre partnership between these two professions. (ie, there are progressive forces at work in all professions, including in law, medicine and politics, but a careful examination of the evidence suggest that most, not all, but most of the American medical, legal and political systems are grossly dysfunctional and gangrened to the bone).

To make matters worse, most of the U.S. ratified human rights treaties that have estabished normative rules to protect and promote the People’s birth-right to enjoy wellbeing and dignity to the end of their lives and to benefit from key international and constitutional principles, including but not limited to equal access to meaningful medicine as well as to a responsible public health system, have been grossly violated by those who have legally usurped the Amerian Governments’ institutions, most of whom have distinguished themselves as the Trillion-dollars Big Drug Industry’s “hired guns”, the consequence of which is nothing less than systemic and “inflammatory” oppression of the “masses”. (13)

In this perspective, this talk will briefly review a few structural causes to the above-mentioned challenges regarding the crippled American legal system, including, but not limited to fundamental rights and systematic Article 6 (of the US Constitution) torpedoing, structural discrimination against non-mainstreamers, notwithstanding the 14th and Vth Amendments and the Founding Fathers’ willful importation of a flawed British royal (monarchical) legal system where indoctrinated conservative and often miseducated federal judges are appointed for Life, meaning that a significant portion of Federal American Law is decided by mentally impaired ideologues and maintream status quo conservatives who are much older than the normalized retirement age that ranges from 65 to 75 years (as occurs with most State Judges) and who work under conditions of structural stress, inter alia, (i.e., legal jargon for “among other things”) that which is way worse than the constitutional rationale of judicial independence via Life tenure. (Source) (14)

Thenceforth, we will give power point information for the benefit of alternative health-care providers on liabilities risks as well as on legal protection techniques that can be implemented in order to avoid legal pitfalls and thrive as best as possible under the present circumstances with holistic & happiness medicine.

In addition, key arguments that can be invoked in a Court of law when arbitrary legal attacks hit (from Medical Boards, FDA, FTC, frivolous patients, et al) will follow as well as a brief discussion of Patients’ Fundamental Health Rights and Duties as well as on the future of medicine and it’s “significant other”, the Law. 

 Liability and the Standard-of-Care

The State’s Conventional Medicine is characterized with an affliction known as “the standard-of-care.” This legal term is a stifling innovation and protects those who conform to a sick-care system not only which is no longer run by responsible doctors, but that is  most controlled by the ten Big Pharma Ceos and their lackeys from both the D & R political ideologies.

We think of the “standard-of-care” as the definition of proper care that a patient receives from the medical establishment. A hoped-for benefit of this concept is that patients with the same, or similar, ailments receive the same care, the standard-of-care, no matter where they are. However, the concept has evolved into a disadvantageous way to quickly and impersonally delivery symptoms-only medicinal treatment.

In this Section, we will unmask the built-in flaws and “frauds” (with regard to the People’s fundamental rights) with this legally enforceable “standards of care” standard. (14 a)

Conclusion with Q & A (30 minutes)

“All public calamities derive from the systematic violation of human rights” (The Declaration of the Rights of Man”, French Declaration of August 26th, 1789)

In this Seminar’s conclusion, we will summarize the key disorders that affect the human body’s major systems and their causation with a word on why conventional medicine can’t reverse most of these diseases and actually worsens most of them,  to which will be added still another word on the greed-based dominant ideology of those who abusively and self-servingly mis-manage the Government’s public health institutions.

As we have seen, the American Legal system (both State and Federal Law) has mostly failed in its international and constitutional mandates to protect  and promote the People’s health rights. Much of American Law validates and promotes out-dated, dubious and deleterious standards of care while deterring holistic medical techniques that can save millions of lives.

As stated before, the supercentenarian life is not for the faint of heart. This Life is for those who willingly choose to dig deep to find scientific truths and then to stand up to these findings by being strongly compliant to a holistic lifestyle while respectfully, but firmly disobeying the necro-norms and deleterious dogmas of the day, including, but not limited to outdated, yet still legally binding enforceable standards of care, most of which, as we have seen in this workshop, lead to massive suffering and early death (eg. for more evidence, click here).

Spending over one trillion dollars and hundreds of millions of hours to pharmacologically intoxicate patients into health via the State’s approved medicine does not serve the People’s general wellbeing. The body’s innate and adaptive intelligence (including it’s microbiota) can’t be coerced with the State’s prescription legal poisons (ie, the Liver and the immune system treat synthetic molecules as toxins, hence the so called “side” or toxic effects of allopathic drugs). In other words, Health and restoration from chronic “civilization” diseases can not be hinged on patented synthetic drugs, convenience surgeries, high-tech nanorobots, artificial gene editing schemes and the like. Once freed from this and other dogmas, self-imposed chains and ignorance, patients can then be better able to resonate with Deepak Chopra’s interpretation of Consciousness, the patient can then be in synch with the high vibes (frequencies) of Mother Nature, the Cosmos and Nature’s 65 million years of evolutionary biology, the patient’s lifestyle and prevention stratagem can then be more consistent with strong Science, in harmony with the sacredness of Life and its ultimate healing engine, “la Joie de Vivre”, that which is one of the main ingredients of the Optimal Longevity Code’s secret sauce.

Seminar Three: The Optimal Longevity Code’s Foundational Core in a Nutshell (8 hours)

“Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.” The Dalai Lama

Introduction (30 minutes)

In the Day Three intro, we introduce the Optimal Longevity Code and talk about new findings relative to the Genetic Code and its epigenetic expression and to what degree genetic testing can be useful for both chronic disease susceptibility evaluation and optimal longevity. Although not indispensible, given their  growing accessibility and their accuracy improvements, different genetic tests that can help to determine a corrective course of action will be reviewed.

Reversing Accelerated Aging & Optimizing Healthy Longevity with the Fundamental Core of Holistic Medicine and Different Constituent Elements of the Optimal Longevity Code (2:45 hours)

“The stability of the internal environment (the milieu intérieur) is the condition for the free and independent life”. Professeur Claude Bernard  (Dr Claude Bernard is one of the recognized  fathers of modern medicine)

Of all of the rejuvenation techniques that we will look at, we will emphasize the fundamentals that make up the foundational core of the Institute’s Optimal Longevity Code: including, but not limited to what the N.I.H. government experts have been persuaded to not believe in: these are detoxification, heavy metals clean-up, colon cleansing and bowel movement techniques, sulforaphane activationcaloric restriction, intermittent- alternate day and full hydric fasting, autophagy activation, holistic immune modulation, deep restorative delta-rem sleeping, optimal nutrition, water & wine medicine, rejuvenation herbs, aromatherapy, acu-pressure as well as electro-acupuncture for chi activation, grounding,  exercise therapy (stretching, twisting, strengthening, bouncing, sweating with lots of HRV, heart rate variability), emotional support & release, breathing techniques to better optimize N.O. and the proper oxygenation-CO 2 flow (via the nose, designed especially to breath and smell via complex receptors systems, including flowers, pheromones, dangers and wine’s bouquet), mindful attitude, intuition sharpening, deep cortisol-lowering meditation, inspiring prayer and other anti-stress modalities, clinical nutrition, blood sugar stabilizers, microbiome diversity enhancement, (from 20,000 species, most Westerner now only have 500 left) the “make room for mushrooms”, bio-energetics, selected supplementation and neutraceuticals, hormonal homeostasis and holistic testosterone boosting technology, optimal neurotransmitter firing, upregulation of telomerase, glutathione S-Transferase and other key enzymes, circadian biological activation, telomere lengthening praxis, epigenetic & methylation fine-tuning, genetic repair optimization, senescent cell inhibitionstem cell rejuvenation techniques, mitochondrial fine-tuning, peptide therapy and more, depending on time availability.

 The Optimal Longevity Tune-up Protocol in a Nutshell

To maximize a healthy lifespan, the first physiological tune-up procedure that is usually needed accross the board is to address the Brain-Gut Axis by optimizing the patient’s sleep patterns followed by stress management protocol, a plan to  clear and clean up the excretion and detox pathways (which includes the oral cavity) and by making sure water & food intakes are personally optimized as well as the microbiota’s diversity and balance and the workshopee’s entourage field.

When the body is freed from nutritional imbalances, toxins, parasites, infections, auto-immunity, inflammation, oxidation, emotional scars, energy blocages, toxic fields and other co-morbidities, the workshopee will feel, digest and poop better, at which point the patient can better activate his-her body’s main bio-chemical signaling systems (ie, hormones, cytokines and neurotransmitters), thanks to which all of the body’s major physiological systems can get fine-tuned for optimal performance, including, but not limited to the body’s stem-cell based repair mechanisms, rejuvenation hormones and longevity genes.

The Healing Milieu’s Entourage Effect (15 minutes)

“La forme  est l’Émanation du Fond” (Victor Hugo)

Etymologically, the words health and healing comes from the words “holy” and “whole” and can be construed to mean “to make whole again”. Homeostasis, or the restoration of mileu’s balance and diversity has also characterized the essence of good medicine. In this realm, the milieu or bio-terrain (also called the micro-environment) as well as the entourage and macro-environment or “field” that surrounds the patient are also important to optimize. This talk will develop the relevance of these concepts.

Emerging Longevity Issue: Eye and Ear Disorders (30 minutes)

“There are many systemic diseases we see in the eye” (Dr. Roy Chuck, chair of the department of ophthalmology and visual sciences at Albert Einstein College of Medicine)

As sunlight travels 93 million miles to Earth, it penetrates the atmosphere, lands on the planet and its photons (i.e., the packets of energy that carry light) penetrate and stimulate the retina at the back of the eyes, starting a chain of events that leads to the part of the brain known as the visual cortex. With accelerated aging, toxin accumulation and oxidative stress, the harmonious rendez-vous between the photon and the eyes can become stressed and diseased. In this talk, we will examine a few eye disorders that tend to accompany modern accelerated aging as well as chronic diseases and thereafter, analyse their treatment plans through both conventional and holistic prisms.

Very often, eye pathologies are are tissue biomarkers for systemic disease,  most of which are tied to circulatory diseases and, even broader, to inflammation, thus immune system activity or dysfunction. These eye conditions are a clue that the patient should delve broader and deeper into the body for clues as to why a disease has seeded within the bioterrain. Treating only the eyes as do most eye doctors is or should be malpractice, at least from the view point of holistic science whose every nature is contrary to conventional specialization-based and greed-anchored medicine.

For example, dry eye is normally diagnosed as a condition of altered tear composition that results from a diseased or dysfunctional lacrimal functional unit. However, the evidence suggests that inflammation causes structural alterations and/or functional paralysis of the tear-secreting glands. Changes in tear composition resulting from lacrimal dysfunction, increased evaporation and/or poor clearance have pro-inflammatory effects on the ocular surface. This inflammation is responsible in part for the irritation symptoms, ocular surface tissue disease, and altered corneal tissue barrier function in dry eye.

Yet, today dry eye is being treated as an “eye-only” disease like all the other eye diseases. Inflammation may have a pain-initiating impact on certain tissue, but it is never isolated to a single organ. It is all connected. Dry eye may be the earliest obvious sign of systemic inflammation as signaled to us by inflammation in the eye. Same issue with blepharitis (eyelid disease)

In 2006, European researchers published a review article titled, “A Sick Eye in a Sick Body? Systemic Findings in Patients with Primary Open-angle Glaucoma.” (cf. Pache, Mona, and Josef Flammer. “A sick eye in a sick body? Systemic findings in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma.” Survey of ophthalmology 51.3 (2006): 179-212). Prior to this publication, few in the medical community recognized glaucoma, a significant neurological disease, to be a systemic disease. The assumption was that the disease was isolated to the eye. Now there is recognition that glaucoma is actually a precursor to Alzheimer’s disease just like erectile dysfunction is a precursor to  CVD. It is the same type of disease, but it shows up in the nervous system in the eye often before symptoms of brain degradation appear. This time lag may be due to the extraordinary “reserve” of the brain compared to the nervous system of the eye.

Despite our recognition of the association between glaucoma and a sick body, those who draft the Conventional Medical canons have made no effort to utilize this information for the benefit of patients. If anything, due to the 10-minute office visit and the marketing behind  drugs like Lucentis, eye-only treatment are the “standard of care” of the day. The abstract of the “A Sick Eye in a Sick Body” is replicated here:

“Despite intense research, the pathogenesis of primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) is still not completely understood. There is ample evidence for a pathophysiological role of elevated intraocular pressure; however, several systemic factors may influence onset and progression of the disease. Systemic peculiarities found in POAG include alterations of the cardiovascular system, autonomic nervous system, immune system, as well as endocrinological, psychological, and sleep disturbances. An association between POAG and other neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer disease and Parkinson’s disease, has also been described. Furthermore, the diagnosis of glaucoma can affect the patient’s quality of life. By highlighting the systemic alterations found in POAG, this review attempts to bring glaucoma into a broader medical context.” ( (cf. Pache, Mona, and Josef Flammer. “A sick eye in a sick body? Systemic findings in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma.” Survey of ophthalmology 51.3 (2006): 179-212).

The authors go on to say that their findings suggest that glaucoma is not just a process involving the visual system, but more likely the manifestation of a more generalized systemic dysfunction.  Alzheimer’s Disease can also be seen via the examination of the eyes, reflecting a sick circulatory system. And circulatory (heart) diseases continue to be the number one killer. Source

Because most eye conditions discussed  in this section are part of an “ensemble”,  meaning that they constitute tissue biomarkers for other more systemic disease or diseases, we will also discuss Dr Bates’  holistic approach for improved eyesight.

As for ear disorders, we will show that ear problems like hearing loss and tinnitus are less the result of the aging process than consequence of living in an un-holistic way and-or having been a victim of decibel and chemical abuse. (Source)

EMFs Toxicity (15 minutes)

Another pervasive and emerging public health problem that is affecting healthy lifespans, Emf toxicity. These are frequencies and radiation coming from wifi, cell phones, cell phone towers, electrical appliances, smart meters, blue tooth technology, micro-wave oven etc that are impacting big time human health, especially younger brains who are addicted to cell phones. If France, Israel and couple other countries have banned from elementary schools all wifi equipement and cell phones, it is precisely to help protect young brains from the onslaught of these cell-membraine calcium channel disruptors, inter alia. This section will discuss how to best protect human and animal health from this technology.

Sleep Disorders  (15 minutes)

Deep restorative Sleep is one of Happiness Medicine’s twelve most important wellbeing tools, more powerful than pills, surgery and any high-tech procedure combined, because none of  conventional medicine’s weapons and procedures can repair damaged DNA, spur rejuvenation hormones, charge up neurotransmitters, calm inflammation, calm the mind  and detox beat-up tissues like deep  restorative sleep.

This Section will examine the best deep sleep protocols, including, but not limited to different ways to holistically resolve Apnea, snoring, frequent urination and other sleeping problems.

Dietary Supplements and Scientific Evidence Evaluation (30 minutes)

Are non prescription pills, supplements and neutraceuticals holistically useful for durable health and optimal longevity ?

Many conventional and integrative medicine, biogerontology and anti-aging specialists claim that certain dietary supplements like niagen (nicotinamide riboside), resveratrol, D-ribose, vitamin D3, antioxydants, Fish- MCT-Krill Oils, Algae, Vitamin B-12, metformin, ketones, Co-Q-10, L-Carnitine, NAC, BDNF boosters and many other supplements are safe and efficient insofar as risk prevention and longevity activators are concerned. This talk will show the data that either substantiates some of these claims or debunks them. (Cf illustration)

For example, on one of dozens of supplements we may review, fish oils, the viewer can confirm via mouse click  below the data that confirms that fish oils are less and less reliable as healthy sources of long chain Omega 3s, worse, not only the evidence debunked the claim that fish oils are cardio-protective, even if they may reduce tryglicerides, but they were shown via multiple published peer-reviewed meta-analyses to significantly increase cancer risks, including, but not limited to aggressive prostate cancer (ie with a 71 percent risk).

On the other hand, contrary to mainstream medical dogmas and many misleading publications, (which is the fate of around 50 percent of all of what is published in pubmed as wrote the editors in chief of both the Lancet and NEJM, Cf. Source), the short chain Plant-based Omega 3s (ie, in its alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) form) has been scientifically proven to get converted to DHA & EPA safely and more efficiently than what was once believed, and all the more so that vegan Omega 3 sources like walnuts,  the wild Mediterranean mucilaginous  weed purslane, flax and, inter alia, chia seeds are combined to a holistic lifestyle that includes what this afternoon’s discussion will talk about. (i.e, to find out, the reader has to come to the workshop).

Thus, for fish oil supplements and other pills and extracts (what is called neutraceuticals), we will weigh or evaluate the credibility and strength of the evidence and pinpoint where the preponderance of the evidence for a given product’s safety and efficiency may lie. In addition, we will teach workshopees how to employ a few of the forensic detective’s truth-digging tools, thanks to which the workshopee will be better able to distinguish flawed and biased publications from truthful ones supported by strong science.

Because there are many confusing, biased and conflicting published material and claims on dietary and  herbal supplements, biotech products and health procedures that are readily available in Medical School’s libraries, Government buildings and online (e.g. universities, institutes, summits, journals etc), both patients and health-practitioners may benefit from participating in this Session.  (15)

Cancer, Onco-immunology and Optimal Longevity (30 minutes)

In this talk, we will demonstrate why Holistic medicine with regard to  cancer is safer, more cost-friendly and especially clinically superior across the board. We will discuss what cancer can teach us in terms of longevity medicine and how holistic savoir-faire can help to gently guide cancer cells to be redifferentiated back into the community of death-programmed cells and-or activate cancer-killing T cells so that humans can better reach their 120 designed lifespan years cancer-free.

We have put together a documentary called holistic oncology movie on this subject with over 60 interviews of cancer experts and patients. Couple documentary extracts will be viewed so as to confirm holistic oncology’s clinical superiority to conventional oncology. The gist of this documentary is less the integration of both types of oncological systems (ie, alternative and orthodox or conventional) than the showing that mainstream conventional oncology can’t be the long term solution and shouldn’t even be the short term standard of care for most if not all malignancies, if only because the conventional understanding of cancer’s nature and hence it’s intervention tools (ie, in particular, its cytotoxic chemo, ionic radiation and surgery) are not consistent with the findings of science, Reason and good medicine.

Among other key aspects of oncology, what conventional oncologists tend to miss is the relevance of detoxification, clinical nutrition, immune-surveillance and cancer stem cells. First off conventional oncology and even the NIH website misrepresent detoxification as a quackery. Thereafter, conventional oncologists will refuse to intervene holistically with regard to cancer stem cells claiming either that they don’t exist or that synthetic patented FDA approved drugs are not yet available to target these cells. Yet, the data is overwhelmingly clear on the fact that cancer stem cells’ evolutionary-based intelligence has mastered the art of survival and the science of longevity by deploying immune-surveillance ruse mechanisms combined to their sophisticated and protective “milieu” networking, including with the microbiome, fibroblasts, lymphocytes, enzymes (e.g., negalase, among others) and other elements coming from the bio-terrain. To these maneuvers and among other mechanisms, cancer stem cells switch off tumor suppressor genes as well as the apoptosis genes so as to not die and then activate oncogenes and the telomerase enzyme to keep cancer cells’ telomeres long, this way, they can divide, invade and replicate profusely, in conformity and with Staline’s totalitatarian stratagem and Darwin’s “natural selection” model.  (16)

Instead of paying attention to the chain of causality and metabolic pathways with regard to carcinogenesis, conventional oncologists, the cancer Industry and Governmental “experts” prefer to bankrupt both patients and the country with expensive symptomatology weaponry, in particular with destructive tumor shrinking procedures that will usually seed new malignancies and-or worsen the eventual post-five years outcome, including with the so-called “liquid cancers”. Even the more recent conventional investment in costly immune-therapeutics via gene-therapy appears prima facia to be both unnecessary and laden with risks and long-term recurrence. On the other hand, simple, yet powerful holistic bio-terrain interventions have been compellingly shown to upregulate the good tumor suppressor genes while downregulating oncogenes and multiple cancer biomarkers to the point of achieving malignancy reversal.

Amyloidosis, the Next Longevity Frontier (20 minutes)

The idea is to die young as late as possible.” (Ashley Montagu)

Supercentenarians like the French Mediterranean Jeanne Calment and hundreds of others have escaped acquiring Society’s common chronic diseases that un-necessarily kill millions of Americans each year, such as heart disease, cancer, stroke, autoimmunity and, among other civilization diseases or plagues, diabetes. However, centenarians and supercentenarians also eventually die, but most will succumb to Senile Systemic Amyloidosis or a related amyloidosis that alters proteins, which stick to the inside of blood vessels thereby restricting blood flow and creating inner havoc. (Source). In this realm, the organs of predilection that are hit are the kidneys, the heart and the brain.

Conventional medicine experts have been unable and-or unwilling to reverse these protein misfoldment diseases. On the other hand, the Happiness Medicine Institute’s expertise team has accumulated compelling evidence that shows that these pathologies can be better controlled if not significantly delayed with innovative science and advanced holistic medicine.

Hands-on Playful Longevity Techniques (45 minutes)

“It’s not because we are old that we don’t play, it’s because we don’t play that we get old” (George Bernard Shaw)

To these corrective and balancing techniques, we will teach hands-on exercises to optimally breath, move, meditate, see and activate key energy fields, including via acu-pressure, EFT, reflexology, aromatherapy, sophrology and more. If time allows, we will also delve into evaluation techniques like muscle testing (kinesiology), Chinese nail and tongue testing, stool & urine analysis, psycho-morphology and facial diagnosis, metabolic body types assessment, ear lobe examination (that can help to predict coronary crises), alternate nostril breathing, HRV support and other holistic tools like organoleptic testing that can assist us in pinpointing warning signs, some of which can be as useful as genetic and biochemical tests given their relevance, simplicity and immediacy.

Culinary, Essential Oils & Wine Demonstration (55 minutes)

“Wine can be a poison, a food or a medicine depending on  the dosage” Paracelsus

(This section depends on whether or not we have access to a kitchen area, if not proposed, the Seminar price will be less)

Because Science shows that moderate to small amounts of quality wine is a “fundamental to both health and longevity, we will demonstrate the best ways to use this medicinal elixir. And yes, peer-reviewed published studies confirm the pervalence of more chronic diseases and early death risks when wine is  not consumed versus when quality wine is consumed regularly and in small amounts. Criticizing wine by saying it is “alcohol” is like condemning spinash because there is some arsenic in it. In the same way that spinash’s small amounts of arsenic gives spinash its Popeye power, in the same way, wine’s alcohol potentiates all of wine’s thousands of healthy and longevity phyto-nutrients and longevity molecules while helping to thin the blood thereby avoiding the number one killer, cardio-vascular diseases. As Paracelsus said over two thousands years ago, it’s all in the dosage, to which we can add quality and timing. Too much wine will obviously harm the liver and other organs, but in the right proportion and context, wine can be a powerful medicine, just like essential oils, sunlight, exercises,  botanicals, food, poetry and the like.

This Demonstration will also teach how to use essential oils. French-invented, modern aromatherapy (founded by René-Maurice Gottefaussé & Vanet) has been taught in France for over a century, thanks to which, with other international contributions, we now know how to best use plant volatile essential oils and their blends for the optimization of mood, detox, immune-boosting and many other conditions and diseases via their incorporation in water, food, air, land (as natural insecticides),  massage, suppository and, among other modalities and exceptionally, intravenously.

Thereafter, we will demonstrate how to optimize certain foods (using plants, herbs, flowers, roots, mushrooms and the like) via the making of a longevity dish that comes from either the Mediterranean Diet, the Vegan Diet and-or the Rawfood Whole-Plant diet. These three diets can all be holistically beneficial for healthy lifespans, depending on the person’s growth, lifestyle, environment and genes. Although the Dash, Ketogenic, Paleo and other alternative diets are popular these days, and can be useful short term in order to mitigate the MAD biochemical assault (Mad = modern American diet), this Seminar will debunk most of the keto-paleo-atkins diets and other health claims in terms of long term health maintenance and adapted replenishment, notwithstanding a few exceptions regarding nutritional ketosis. (*)

Example: Raw Superfoods Longevity Smoothie: Making a Longevity smoothie that can help to both detoxify and nourish the body at the cellular level: Made from quality superfoods, we could prepare either a velvety soup-smoothie or a vegan guacamole or a detox-boost green & root juice, made from herbs, roots like maca and ginger (ginger greatly helps with intestinal motility and the immune system) mushrooms, plants, pomegranate and the like. A raw vegan chocolate mousse is another option as is a raw vanilla custard made from soaked nuts, coconut, psyllium, chia seeds,  flax, avocados, dates and more. Methylating, anti-inflammatory and nitric oxide promoting soups made from beets, cabbage, garlic, tumeric, tomatos, pomegranate, mushrooms, nuts, herbs and more can also be possible.

Community Medicine

From Microbe Collectivities (biofilms) to Human Eco-villages where Joie de Vivre is the New Currency

One can distinguish four major determinants to public health, the central one being the “milieu”, or “bioterrain”, rich in Life and substantially made from microbes, including microbes in the body, on the body and in the natural environment. Microbes had a decisive role over evolution’s Engine, much more than human Life as microbes appeared first and over hundreds of millions of years, slowly but firmly complexified and supported pluricellular forms of life, including the human energy system via organelles like mitochondria and lysosomes. Furthermore, human Life would be unsustainable with microbes. Microbes started evolutionary Life and continue to control human health and death, eating away cadavres and decomposting them for the benefit of future generations. When humans organize in communities like microbes, as a few of the Longevity or Blue zones villages do, then the inter-communicatory systems work better and Life is both prolonged and more satisfying with Joie de Vivre. To organize into communities, human eventually need to nurture a shamanic and unifying Consciousness. Once that happens in a significant way, then it will be easy to eradicate epidemics of chronic diseases and extend lifespan. Then there will be lots of holistic eco-communities and fewer governmetnal institutions, corruption and hospitals.  Eventually, according to the astrophysicists, the Earth will progress toward the trajectory of Venus where Life as we know it can no longer live.  Either that or it will be destroyed by huge meteorites or by today’s misguided ruling leaders. But before all of that happens, we still have the option to not only extend our own lives, but to significantly extend the healthy Lifespan on Planet Earth via the fundamental principles that nuture Community Life .

This talk will thus focus on showing that the zip code is more actionable and more important than the genetic code. Thenceforth, this talk will discuss different ways Communities can organize to both prevent and reverse chronic diseases while extending the lifespan as well as health spans of humans, animals and planet Earth.

Closing Arguments

Articulating the Optimal Longevity Code in a Nutshell

In this Section, a significant piece of the Core of the Optimal Longevity Code will be shared and supported via power point evidence. If the Code’s “secrete sauce” is deligently executed most of the time, the likelihood of reaching 120 years without serious diseases if high.

If anyone, Jeanne Calment, thanks to her Joie de Vivre and Mediterranean Lifestyle, was the epitome of those of her generation capable of upregulating the best genetic expression possible under the circumstances, in her case, up to 122 and a half. (Source). Today however, with what we know, we can do much better than Jeanne. However, let us remain humble and at least reach most of her age, at least up to 119-120 years when Jeanne decided to stop smoking cigarettes while continuing her intake of red wine and chocolate.

Conclusion of the Three Days Workshop with Q & A: (1 hour)

“Modern civilization depends on science … knowledge should not be viewed as existing in isolated parts, but as a whole, each portion of which throws light on all the other, and that the tendency of all is to improve the human mind, and give it new sources of power and enjoyment … narrow minds think nothing of importance but their own favorite pursuit, but liberal views exclude no branch of science or literature, for they all contribute to sweeten, to adorn, and to embellish life … science is the pursuit above all which impresses us with the capacity of man for intellectual and moral progress and awakens the human intellect to aspiration for a higher condition of humanity (a forgotten concept in medicine)”. Joseph Henry

In the same way that over half of all of Life’s vertebrate species has been destroyed within the last 50 years, (Source) in the same way, human vitality and healthy longevity have been massively torpedoed. Which explains the onslaught of neuro-degenerative and auto-immune diseases  as well as accelerated aging, all of which has been stressing out the majority of the American Population. As a result, the very survival of the Nation is at stake. Without fundamental change, in less than one generation, over 50 percent of American children will be autistic and mentally impaired, over 50 percent of 65 year olders will be demented, over fifty percent of Americans will have at least one cancer diagnosis while managing multiple other co-morbidities, from autoimmunity, to chronic inflammation, rampant infertility & STDs, accelerated oxidation and so much more. (Source). On the other hand, the other fifty percent of Americans who will not be on disability insurance nor replaced by machines or outsourcing will be coerced to pay out trillions of dollars in taxes for the country’s sick-care bills and bureaucracy, what Warren Buffet called an unsustainable “tapeworm system”. (Source)

However, as Nobel Litterature laureate André Malraux predicted over 60 years ago, the 21st century can be a moral improvement from the 20th century. Malraux actually predicted: “..it  will be spiritual or it will cease to be”. So the programmed Sixth Extinction is still a credible option. (Source). But with more holistic pro-activeness and savoir-faire, extinction can be avoided. In this perspective, Holistic Medicine is nothing less than a Paradigm Shift in the art of being and the science of healing. This medicine is helping People to not only tackle their inner sabotaging monsters, but also to take back their sovereignty as more and more Americans are opening their eyes to the horrors of the American mainstream “business as usual” model of medicine. Simultaneously, more patients are understanding how simple, yet profound healing can be when the mind pays attention to Nature’s Code and evolutionary biological mechanisms that have been fine-tuning human, bacterial and archeae genes for millions and millions of years.

As the esteemed Professor Dean Ornish intelligently put it in his TED talk and his other public speeches, in two controlled clinical trials, holistic medicine (by itself, without drugs, surgery or anything invasive or high-tech), has been shown to downregulate the expression of deleterious genes governing oxidative stress, chronic inflammation and cancer while at the same time giving a significant boost to one of longevity’s engines, the telomere system. (Source) Dean Ornish has also confirmed many times in his public interventions that most chronic diseases including accelerated aging share some of the same biological mechanims that we have looked at, all of which can be holistically tweaked for the benefit of the patient’s healthy lifespan and Society.

After a brief over-all conclusion on a few of the Key Holistic Techniques that we have examined, the floor will be open to questions and comments.

The expected Benefits from attending these three one-day long Seminars

“The young physician starts life with 20 drugs for each disease, and the old physician ends life with one drug for 20 diseases.”  (William Osler)  William Osler was a highly respected physician, professor and writer who authored “The Principles and Practice of Medicine” in 1892, which served as the standard clinical medicine text for 40 years. Later on in his life he wrote that one of the most crippling teachings in Medical schools is this “one pill for an ill” principle.

With this above-mentioned holistic knowledge, everyone who is motivated and compliant with holistic lifestyle and most of these longevity techniques and who has not gotten into serious debilitating accidents, including surgical, radiological and drug major incidents, (17) should be able to reach the supercentenarian birth-right status without major chronic diseases, whatever the workshopee’s family history may be in terms of weak genetic links and SNPs (pronounced “snips”). (18)

In particular, the knowledge imparted, if applied, can favorably impact up to 18 biomarkers, this means to say that the workshopee’s blood pressure, sugar stability, oxygen intake, neurogenesis, immune-regulation, hormonal signaling, insulin sensitivity, neurotransmitter firing, cholesterol-lipid profile, oral health, heart rate variability, hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis homeostasis, mitochondrial function, microbiota diversity, bowel movement, deep sleep patterns, inflammation control (measured by CRP, interleukin 6, TNF alpha, inter alia) and many other health and longevity biomarkers should significantly improve within one to three months if not earlier.

As a double bonus, the workshopee, if holistically compliant, will strengthen his-her bio-terrain to such an extent that she-he will be quasi-immune from contracting some of the more common chronic “civilization” diseases, in particular, the Big Five, considered to be today’s “Black Plagues”: diabetes, cardiovascular events, cancer, auto-immunity and mental disorders like Azheimers, Depression and Parkinson. And as a last double bonus, the workshopee should appear biologically younger with visible radiance and save money by getting rid of most or all of his-her “symptom” based prescription drugs, in conformity with Dr. William Osler’s recommendation (see quote above) and the exigencies of  Reason. (19)

The supercentenarian birth-right status starts at 110 years, but our human biological potential, as of this writing, has been formally determined to be around 120 years (called the Hayflick limit), the epitome of which is represented by a French Mediterranean upbeat lady Jeanne Calment who died at 122 and a half (cf she’s in the Guinness book) after experiencing a Life of purpose, enjoyment and holistic savor-faire, including via 2.2 kilos of dark chocolate each week, lots of dancing, fencing, socializing, musicotherapy, red wine and relishing in the Mediterranean Lifestyle with her daily unflappability vibe.

However, more and more research indicates that some time in the not too distant future, we may be able to tweak our genetic material, longevity pathways and wellbeing genes to prolong a healthy lifespan to beyond 140 years. (20)  But we are not there yet. We will therefore focus on what we know is achievable, a Lifespan of 120 years in relatively good shape, with all of one’s conscious awareness and major bodily functions working enough to experience Life to its fullest, with what we call in France, “La Joie de Vivre”.

Water, air and cleanliness are the chief articles in my pharmacopeia”. Napoleon Bonaparte  To which Ben  Franklin, the Spiritual Father of the U.S. of A replied:  “The best of all medicines is resting and fasting”. Thus, these two giants agree on therapeutic siestas….(napping). Today, one of the central public issues is  to incorporate this piece of advise within the legally enforceable health Code. Which would mean that all employers, including the Govenment and its military, FDA and judicial branches, would need to install meditation and siesta equipment and allow a good two hours  for lunch breaks.

The Difference between a Conventional Check-up versus a Holistic Tune-up.

“Conventional Doctors are trained less to understand the conditions of health than to diagnose the symptoms of diseases. That’s why a 5 to 10 minutes doctor’s visit is sufficient. The Check-up visit mainly consists in identifying symptoms and finding a corresponding drug and-or surgical procedure to supress the identified symptoms.  On the other hand, a Holisically trained Health Professional is trained to identify the immediate and structural causes of diseases. Thereafter, the holistic healer will both guide and teach the patient to become “whole” again, to restore the body’s main homeostasis and repair mechanisms, at which point both the healer and the healee, as a team, can activate a customized (personalized) “tune-up” Protocol that will favorably modulate the mal-being and-or illness condition at hand.” Christian Joubert (H.M.

Reference and Precision Notes

Screen Shot 2017-09-18 at 4.41.30 PM
(1) From the viewpoint of function, the epigenome is involved in regulating gene expression, tissue differentiation, and the suppression of transposable elements. Unlike the underlying genome which is largely static within an individual, (ie, made from 23,000 genes) the epigenome can be dynamically altered by environmental conditions. This is great news for Holistic scientists because it confirms the millennia-old intuition that the micro-environment or what Claude Bernard called the bio-terrain determines biological configuration. To understand, the example of the Queen Bee is a good one. Born under the same conditions just like all of the other worker bees in terms of genetic composition and the preliminary comforts associated with Hive birth, once fed with the royal nectar, the Queen bee epigenetically expresses genes that are silenced in the other bees, turning her into a massive big bee gifted with multiple talents, including but not limited to the laying of thousands and thousands of eggs. Similarly for human longevity, rather than being genetically predetermined, our lifespan appears to be largely epigenetically designed and determined. Just like with the Queen Bee, Diet and other environmental influences impact our lifespan by changing the epigenetic information via enzymes and signaling molecules.
(2). The Belgian biologist Christian de Duve, with two other colleagues, received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1974 for the discovery of lysosomes as well as for his general work on the structural and functional organization of the cell. Abandonning his search for cellular understanding and optimized longevity, Christian de Duve prematurely ended his life via euthanasia at a young 95 years not too long ago, notwithstanding proven healthy lifespan potential and the promises of red wine’s longevity and dark cacao’s molecules and other holistic pathways. With hindsight, it can be reasonably concluded Christian de Duve’s work has been largely responsible for the creation of modern Cell Biology. What used to be a cell with components, the reality of which was often a matter of dispute, has been since the 1974 a system of great evolutionary and organizational sophistication with units for the production of components essential to life and units for disposal of worn out parts and for defense against foreign organisms and substances. As we will see via power point, since its discovery, our understanding of this crucial, yet often underestimated organelle has significantly increased, including, but not limited to  evidence that shows lysosome’s role with regard to the activation of one of the most talked about enzyme in the Longevity field, mTOR, a protein kinase involved in cellular and organismal growth responses to nutrient availability, inter aia. An Italian medical conference gave a decent summary on this organelle’s functions just a few months ago. “Sixty years later, it is clear that the lysosome greatly exceeded the expectations of its discoverer. Recent findings on the role of the lysosome in endocytosis, exocytosis, autophagy, nutrient sensing, signaling and on the mechanisms underlying lysosome positioning changed our traditional view of the lysosome from a dead-end organelle to a control center of cell homeostasis. Over 50 different types of lysosomal storage diseases have been identified, each due to the deficiency or malfunction of a specific lysosomal protein. These disorders affect many organ systems, most notably brain, leading to chronic illness and death of affected individuals”. (Source)
(3). Even though all of these hallmarks are inter-connected, longevity scientists tend to focus on one of them in  terms of being the central engine of aging. Many years ago, longevity scientists considered genomic instability and its related process called oxidative stress to be the central hallmark or the engine of aging, as exogenous free radicals and endogenous mutations seriously damage nuclear and mitochondrial DNA and damaged DNA was thought to be the key aging factor. Another group of scientists thought that DNA repair mechanisms and their failure were key. Then, the senescent cell theory was thought to be the more important hallmark of aging. Hence, geroscientists developed compounds that cleared senescent cells from the body. When fed to mice, these compounds called senolytics rejuvenated old mice, making them look and act like younger ones. However, so far, senolytics on humans have not produced the desired effects (clinical trials are still pending, including with metformin). During one era, stem cells were considered to be the engine of aging. One supercentenarian lady we will examine was surviving on only two stem cells for a few years. Thus, stem cells can’t be the engine of aging, even if they are part of the repair and rejuvenation process. When Professor Liz Blackburn discovered telomerase, longevity scientists believed that telomeres were the key components of aging since they were strongly correlated with cellular division. But thereafter, scientists discovered that animals with long telomeres still had aging issues. They thus went back to the drawing board. Today, the preferred centralizing theories among many biogerontologists including the Happiness Medicine Team are metabolic fine-tuning via food and fastingtelomerase activation, autophagy clearance, mitochondrial regulation and the epigenetic clock. The epigenome is the master program which controls the expression of our genetic code. An epigenetic program makes a series of temporary changes to our genome, in particular, via the DNA methylation pathway. (Cf Source) By turning genes off or on, this epigenetic “clock” produces a constellation of proteins that help the organism to adapt to his-her environmentThis model is keenly holistic because it suggests that Lifestyle and what we do with our lives are key insofar as the rate of aging is concerned, either accelerated or metabolically slow, like the 200 years old tortoise or rock fish. However, it should not be forgotten that all of these hallmarks or macro-mechanisms  are in constant and dynamic interaction. For example, stem cell decline comes about as the result of DNA damage, deregulated nutrient sensing, senescence, and other catabolic processes.
(4). When nutrition is used instead of prescription drugs, a doctor can get sued or disciplined because he or she has not used the standard of care. By using food instead or drugs, in the eyes of the Law, the doctor is  guilty of depriving the patient from what is legally called “a loss of chance”. Even if statin drugs leads to Co-Q-10 loss, strokes and other toxic effect, they must be used. Even if red rice yeast, natto, niacin and a Mediteranean diet can get reverse cardiovascular diseases, the State certified medical doctor has an obligation to first prescribe the drug, as it has been raised to the highest status since it is supported by the highest type of evidentiary process, the RTC. As a consequence, real holistic medicine is all the more banned that in many intances, clinical nutrition should not be used with prescription drugs. The bottom line is that we have a conventional system that is designed less to reverse diseases then to perpetuate and worsen long term health conditions, thanks to which cash-flow can spur the maximization of profit and transform the American People into a “one pill for an ill” sick-care subservient system, what 19th Alexis de Tocqueville called a form of “subhumanity”. Using randomized control trials for certain neutraceuticals or nutrients like apple peels or black cumin seeds to compare its effect with a controlled sugar pill can be scientifically useful in integrative medicine. That is not at issue. But for holistic medicine, isolating anything from its general biological synergy-based context is normally not recommended. And for this type of medicine, RTC can’t be applied because the patients know what they are taking. So the mainstream system considers Holistic Medicine if not illegal, then at least clinically inferior, when the reality is the contrary.
(5). Happiness Medicine Institute’s conclusion that the Government-sponsored conventional medicine system (also called allopathy) and its biomedical research tend to be unreliable is accompanied with a complementary opinion that Integrative Medicine also has limitations. Although often a step in the right direction, integrative medical research and praxis can also be part of the sick-care problem, albeit not as bad. Other forms of evidence than the randomized control trial model are often used in integrative medicine, but some of these forms can also be negligently flawed and-or willingly spined, either to financially promote an integrative practice or product, because of incompetence, an excessive thirst for ego-based hubristic recognition or for other  reasons that this Section will look into. Furthermore, like conventional medicine, integrative medicine can also be more symptomatic than curative, with the difference that dietary supplements accompany prescription drugs to deal with symptoms and side effects while not enough is done with regard to holistic restoration and addressing the root and social causes of most chronic maladies, notwithstanding the many lab tests that integrative medicine experts order, if only to pay-off the excessively expensive.
(6). At one point, President Lincoln and his buddies at the Kellog sanatoria (where holistic medicine was practiced) were investing in the right direction and reversing “terminal” chronic diseases en mass. But then the engine of narcissistic and predatory greed took over and decisively prevailed via, inter alia, the rigged education system that was financially and politically imposed on the Medical Schools of those Times, which explains why today’s American Medical Schools still have very few if any training on clinical nutrition and common sense. Thereafter, with the damaging ideology of neoliberalism (theorized by Milton Friedman and implemented by Reagan’s crowd), the relic of Taylorism (i.e., maximizing efficiency by standardizing and routinizing everything in order to increase profits whatever the “side effects”) invaded medicine, which led to these 10 minutes medical visits that end with the almighty prescription pad the drugs of which kill hundreds of thousands of innocent Americans each year, a very efficient system for the short term cash flow model, but for both the patient’s  durable health and the livelihood of the Nation, this non personalized corporate allocratic “medicine” system is both an assault against genuine medicine and a fraud. (…)  Today, much of mainstream Science has evolved in such a way as to be synonymous with reductionism, ideology and even scientific fraud, if only because so many experts in conventional medicine willingly withhold from public scrutiny inherent risks that accompany most vaccines, drugs, surgical interventions and more (source) while refusing to investigate promising holistic modalities. Furthermore, many mainstream biomedical journal editors aid and abet the worst behaviours, allowing to be published Industry’s funded studies (whose data tends to be sculpted to fit a preferred theory) while refusing to publish other studies that either are not conducive to the randomized double blind test or that go against their financial interests. For example, when France’s Professor Seralini of Caen University proved that Monsanto’s GMO food was carcinogenic, the Industry pressured the Journal to retract it’s planned publication, which it did. (Source) (….) Worse, many of these alternative techniques are often outlawed by the Conventional Medical System and medical doctors who practice them will eventually lose their license and pay hefty fines and fees. Furthermore, if any alternative medical method has been shown via anecdotal or prospective study evidence to be promising and its sponsors want to market it with a health claim, the medico-industrial-governmental “system of things” will force alternative medicine’s sponsors to spend tens and often hundreds of millions of dollars to pay for the three clinical trial phases the FDA requires. In clear, cost-friendliness is not a friend in today’s medical sick-care system whose appetite for money is as varacious as cancer’s appetite for ATP. (….) Just like during Socrates, Lincoln’s and Semmelweis’s time, when contemporary mainstream doctors and especially the top ones are shown to be the causes of patients’ miserable deaths and suffering, most get outraged and instead of honestly embracing the evidence, they tend to conspire with reactionary forces to silence and even get public authorities to jail competition based on fabrications that are eloquently subsumed under legal charactrizations like “child abuse”, “illegal practice of medicine”, “medical fraud”,  “reckless negligence” and the like. While alternative medicine is not immune to abuse and negligence, mainstream drug and dogma-based medicine tends to be way worse. This medical behavior is nothing new in the History of Medicine, Dr Semmelweiss and thousands of others like him had been persecuted for refusing to practice the deleterious mainstream standard of care of the day, in Semmelweiss case, he refused to allow his assistants and students to touch pregnant delivering women before having washed their hands in a chlorine solution. The conventional medical doctors of those times characterized this as quackery and ostracized Semmelweiss that he was Jewish and stubborn. When Semmelweiss continued to denounce medical doctors continued to “kill” delivering women by giving them the deadly “child-bed fever” and when he exposed their lethal practices of contaminating delivering mothers with deadly  hospital bacteria and their refusal to wash their hands to stop this practice, he lost his job and was eventually put in a jail asylum where he died 14 days after being commited by coercion.  Alas, today’s mainstream conventional medicine is replete with thousands of similar cases.  Today, hundreds of thousands of mainstream medical doctors still accept to practice deleterious medical practices or dogmas while rejecting most of holistic care, in particular with regard to cancer, cardiovascular diseases, autoimmunity and metabolic diseases like diabetes. (….) One of the resuts of Conventional Medicine’s use and abuse of this “Golden Scientific Standard” is the generation of misdiagnosis and deleterious treatment plans. For example, the obsession of the mainstream medical model with numbers and quantification of symptoms has led to a cardiology system that falsely focuses on cholesterol, inter alia, likewise, this system  has led the oncology system to falsely focus on the tumor, inter alia, and similarly, has led the endocrinologist to falsely focus on blood sugar numbers, inter alia. Once these numbers and concomitant biomarkers are ascertained via conventional diagnosis, then the following allopathic step is to bring these numbers down via especially cash-flow generating drugs. For heart disease, among others, we have statins, for cancer, we have tumor shrinkage via cytotoxic chemo and ionic radiation and for blood sugar normalization, we have metformin, insulin and more. Yet, most if not  all of these symptom suppressions worsen the clinical outcome, the proof is irrefutable, as we will see via power-point. Tentative conclusion: For most Americans to achieve the centenarian and supercentenarian birthright status, we need to improve both the “business” and the  scientific determination aspects of contemporary medicine.
(6 a). One of the  only ways this scientific absurdity and human calamity could stop would be to criminalize most of conventional medical practice as the State lawmaker lackeys have criminalized holistic medicine. But before that happens, many more millions of Americans will needlessly be sacrificed upon the altar of greed, arrogance and corruption. The French were decisive in freeing the American rebels from the corrupt British Crown at Yorktown. Thanks to which this Nation was able to prosper. But as the country developed, it became increasingly clear, even to Tocqueville, that systemic violations of internationally recognized human rights , including in the health fied. would be the norm of American standards.
(6 b). Pasteur reportedly said on his deathbed, “Bernard and  Béchamp were right.  “The seed is nothing, the soil is everything.” Another version is: “Le microbe est rien et le terrain est tout” (the microbe is nothing, but terrain is everything”. In this perspective, one of Bernard’s most important ideas is that pathology, the study of abnormal function, is a part of physiology. Bernard insisted that the study of disease must not be separate from the study of health. “There is only one science of life” he often said. Claude Bernard worked hard to break down the barriers between physiology and medicine, health and disease. Bernard never practiced medicine “by prescription,” and his discoveries did not include miracle drugs or lifesaving surgical techniques. He changed the world of medicine in a different way, by showing that medical knowledge does not differ from any other scientific knowledge, in that it can be ascertained by systematic and diligent experimentation. Twentieth and twenty-first century conventional medicine has lost its way in favor of the “by prescription” method for profit.
(7). Proponents of this approach (eg, Drs Fossel, West, Andrews et al) suggest that within a few years, a decisive clinical trial could lead to the first FDA- approved application of telomerase “shots” for the benefit of age-related chronic diseased patients. In this field, Michael Fossel claims that Alzheimer’s disease would be the first target. (Cf,  Source). And Doctor Andrews states that each medical intervention would cost around one million dollars. (Cf Exhibit C below) The modus operandi of this gene therapy would be to rejuvenate the glial brain cells by instructing their DNA via a special delivery system to switch on a specific signal that would express their dormant telomerase enzyme genes. Once expressed, the telomerase enzyme would keep the glial cells’ telomeres nice and long. As a result, these cells could divide much longer and thus extend their lifespans while spurring neurons to rejuvenate, (as glial brain cells have this “caretaker” role and would be in a position to better remove the amyloid plaque, tau proteins and tangles within the Alzheimer brain). This gene therapy is expcted to also be applicable to other old or worn out tissues, from coronary arteries to the beat-up tissues of joints and more. One I.V. or shot every five or so years would be enough to get this rejuvenation signal to the targeted cells, claims Dr Fossel. Eventually, the plan is to rejuvenate all of the body’s somatic cells and thus to extend healthy lifespans continuously with “reset” boosters on a regular basis. There would be no limit to these boosters, therefore, healthy lifespans could be quite long. The experts are talking about living at least (for starts) twice today’s life expectancy, so that would be around 160 years. These experts don’t rule out lifespans of 200 and more years. (Source) While this gene therapy may sound if not like science fiction than difficult to achieve in terms of delivery, the reality is that this gene therapy has been shown to work with three types of cells via a delivery system that has been operational. First, in 1999, with human cells in a petri dish. Then tissue cells and finally animal cells. Furthermore, there is some evidence that telomerase activators have already rejuvenated differeent tissues among those who have taken this dietary supplements, one of whch is called T.A 65. (Source) Even though many experts are convince that the ongoing clinical trial will be a success,  there nonetheless may still be unexpected complications as is often the case with clinical trials, if only because humans are more complex than animals and Petri dish cells and cancer is also a significant risk factor since it also thrives on activated telomerase enzymes.
(8). One of the corroborating pieces of evidence that A.D. is intimately linked to mercury fillings is based on the identical symptomatology that mercury poisoning and A.D. share. According to the official litterature,  symptoms found in an Alzheimer’s disease patient’s brain are as follows: Neurofibillary tangles in the brain: Amyloid plaque formation by secretion of beta-amyloid: Abnormal tubulin GTP binding: Increased tau phosphorylation. Inhibited creatine kinase. Inhibition of glutamine synthetase Source). Similarly, the pathological hallmarks induced by mercury poisoning are as follows: Neurofibillary tangles in the brain Amyloid plaque formation by secretion of beta-amyloid Abnormal tubulin GTP bonding Increased tau phosphorylation Inhibited creatine kinase Inhibition of glutamine synthetase. While correclation is not causation, the identify of the correlation is such that causation all the more triggered that there are other studies that confirm the H.M. Institute’s Alzheimer Hypothesis, including, but not limited to Epideomological evidence. Indeed, where there are no mercury amalgams, there is no evidence of A.D.. (….) Dr. Dale Bredesen confirmed this above-mentioned assertion about amyloid plaque: “…the making of this amyloid is actually a protective response to different metabolic and toxic perturbations. The idea of getting rid of the amyloid only makes sense if you first understand why it’s there and get rid of the cause or causes…we’ve identified 36 different causes that can contribute to this…when you fix that, it’s fine to get rid of the amyloid”. (Source) Regarding the APOE4 gene and the increased risk for Alzheimer’s, Bredesen also confirmed that if a peson has one copy, the A.D. risk is 30%, if you have two copies, the risk is 90%.  There is also an increased risk for anxiety/depression with this gene. This is why it may be important to know the genetic risks in order to be more motivated to correct metabolic imbalances. In this talk, we will discuss how Dr Bredesen has been able to reverse 90 percent of Alzheimer Diseased patients in a small cohort of individuals.
(9). Using these diets short term can show beneficial results because they complete the deficiencies and avoid the excesses of the federal government’s MAD diet (i.e. “modern American diet”, which is a degradation of the SAD diet, ie, “standard American diet”). Thus, any diet that avoids fake processed food and that are genuine “elimination diet”, constitute a good first step.  But long term, these two diets don’t contain enough quality plant-based fiber-rich foods and, among other problems, have way too much animal fats and proteins, the consequence of which has been shown to  be clinically un-safe and deleterious, even if the animal foods are grass-fed and organic. For some pathologies, like epilepsy, diabetes, autoimmunity and certain cancers, a ketogenic diet (i.e., low carbs, higher fat) can be ok short to mid term, provided it is based on a Mediterranean regime or Whole Plant-strong diet rich in beneficial essential fatty acids (lipids), minerals, micro-nutrients, vitamins and the like. But any long term diet that is rich in animal protein, animal endotoxins and animal saturated fats ends up being damaging to healthy human longevity and insulin sensitivity, among other mechanisms, as this Seminar will show. Cholesterol is not at issue, humans need an abundance of cholesterol for the brain, cellular membranes, sex hormones and more. Unless the level of cholesterol is super high, like 350, then it may be ok to use statin drugs short term in order to bring it down to at least 250 or so, because high cholesterol can make the arterial plaque grow and rupture. In the US, rapid lowering of high cholesterol with statin drugs would be an obligation. However, it must be understood why there is so much cholesterol in the first place. More often than not, it’s because the arteries are in bad shape, its linings laden with bacteria and toxins. As a consequence, cholesterol is either produced in the liver or dietary cholesterol is used to patch up these damages. Thus, by artificially lowering cholesterol with statin drugs, not only are the causes not removed, but key molecules like Co-Q-10 are deleted. Be that as it may, in holistic medicine we have many tools to address damaged arteries and high cholesterol. Thus, as a general rule, endogenous cholesterol coming from the liver is the best, the worse being oxidized LDL  from dietary animal sources. More often than not, animal dietary saturated fat and cholesterol as well as other animal derived toxins like MAO molecules need to be avoided. Furthermore, in relation to omega 3s, the essential fatty acid called omega six is generally inflammatory. Animal foods, vegetable oils and processed foods are rich in this type of fat. And highly inflammatory when ingested. On the other hand, vitamin E rich seeds like pumpkin, sunflower and sesame are also very high in omega 6s, much more than omega 3s and 9s. Yet, these plant seeds have an anti-inflammatory effect. (Source) Thus, if one is serious about finding a diet that is consistent with evolutionary biology and nutritional  science, it should be acknowledged that animal versus plant-based macro-molecules are not of the same nature, even if molecularly, they may be similar. From the scientific viewpoint adopted by H.M. Institute’s team, food “experts” like Drs Hymans, Mercola, Perlmutter, Amen Axe, Berg, Kesser & nutritionists like Suzan Somers and David Asprey and many others in the paleo-keto fields appear to be in self-denial about key facts that govern evolutionary biology, in particular, the human anatomical and physiological up to now design, as well as nutritional science. Even Dr Oz is slowly changing his position on this aspect of nutrition. (See Exhibit F)
(9 a). In the same way those who have optimal genes and health have no problems consuming healthy and organic foods like potatoes, grains, including organic gluten, fish, honey, cheese and other animal foods, in a similar way, certain people who have been exposed to lots of toxicity, chronic stress (from which leaky gut can ensue) and deprived of natural births (and hence a strong immune system) do have multiple genetic variations (SNPs) that can be incompatible with some of these foods, in particular wheat and diary. This is one reason why Nutritional plans can’t be uniform, even if there are multiple across the board general principles that are applicable for everyone (ie soda pop and nitrate containing hot dogs are good for no one while for a dog , he or she can eat 10 kilos of meat in a week, and not one platelet will aggregate in the aterial plaque, because that’s how the dog was designed. On the other hand, this is not true with humans, contarily to what intelligent, but misguided functional doctors like Dr Hyman and Perlmetter claim, dietary and animal saturated fat and cholesterol tend to mess up health, as this power point talk with show…… In this perspective, the emerging scientific consensus centers around an eating system based on hunger (eating when hungry) with foods that are fresh, whole, colorful, rich in polyphenols, fiber & antioxidants. When animals and dairy are consumed, nutritional science suggests  they should be fresh, whole (non processed) and organic. For cheese, raw and organic should be the rule whereas for fish, the clean, wild and smaller surface fish are much healthier than the bigger fish.
(9 b).  If any piece of proof that most of today’s conventional medical schools are at best ideological centers to keep the masses sick with regard to chronic diseases and at worse extensions of Big Pharma’s frauds and criminal activities to bestow upon the majority of the People of the United States epidemics of serious chronic diseases, is the simple, but persistent fact that American conventional Medical schools have not taught “dietetics” or nutritional science at least since they were coerced to adopt Big Pharma’s curriculum when “… so many CAM-oriented hospitals, colleges, and medical teaching programs following to the publication of the Flexner Report in 1910 (Cf Flexner Report). And to this day, most Medical School Deans refuse to do so, except for a few more progressive medical school Boards whose directors responded to public pressure and some semblance of scientific integrity. But when these progressive medical schools do teach some nutritional science, it is usually so elementary and misguided that just about all medical schools graduates who take the Hippcrates oath are illiterate with regard to one of Hippocrates key restorative tools, glorious food. Worse, in no way do conventional medical schools teach how to replace Big Pharma’s drugs and surgical knife with food and its derivatives (ie, monodiets, dietary restrictions, therapeutic juicing, superfood smoothies, enzyme-rich rawfoods and medicinal fasting). As we will see in this talk, to characterize food as the US Government and its sanctified Medical schools as “calories” within a system of three macronutrients is both unscientific and self-serving to Big Food Industries and Big Medical-drug Industries’ propaganda schemes. Holistic Food (non processed and non contaminated with the Industries toxins) is genetic information, it’s medicine of the greatest value, it’s the very stuff that feeds human microbiota, without which no human would benefit from the necessary neurotransmitters, vitamins, hormones, butyrate and much more to survive and thrive.
(9 c) For example, Eye-based clinical sign diagnosis  by looking and understanding pelvic gait dysfunctions in joint disease or seeing a coronary tissue urgency via the examiniation of the ear or digestive or autoimmunity issue via a look at the color of the poop etc. Nose-based diagnosis via the smell receptors by smelling the patient’s hydrogen, methane and sulfur gases, putrefaction and endotoxin vapors, the alcohol smell , as well as acetone and ketone “stink”  or even cancer odors, as cancer has a definitive smell for trained noses, (ie, there have been a few holistic healers who have been able to smell cancers, but today, the scientific litterature speaks  more about dogs’ noses as cancer detectors) etc. Next, the Touch diagnosis. This involves palpating tissue like breast matter in order to evaluate any pre-malignancy condtion or the like. If the breast is bouncy and not overly saging for example, this usually  reflects  the general condition of the rest of the body. In other words, if the body is tonic and full of Life force, the breasts should follow and vice versa. Determining temperature is also useful, detecting fever means pain and inflammation , chills usually reflect circulatory and immune dysfunctions, then there are spasms and muscle tension etc..  Following comes the Taste Detection Diagnosis: Tasting has been used and continues to be used in different cultures and medical system as a way to determine disease. For example,  Ayervedic doctors taste urine to test for diabetes and if the healer and the healee have an intimate friendship, then the healer can taste the healee’s hormone situation via the partner’s saliva. The skin taste can indicate electrolyte ane toxin secretion. Holistically, someone who has optimized her or his health energy and is full of Joie de Vivre and good water and food, that person will usually tastes fruity, without toxicity. Lastly, we have Ear sensing Diagnosis. With well trained perceptive ears and and decent stethoscope, the health professional can often hear murmurs or detect other abnormalities like belching just by listening to the patient’s voice vibes. For example, the patient can show if he or she is secreting enough HCL (stomach acid) via a holistic test this Seminar will teach. Stomach acid predigests food and triggers the production of digestive enzymes to efficiently break down foods into animo acids and remove pathogens that came along with the food, so it’s important to know how to test for stomach acid, et
(10). While genomic testing is a good way to determine customized diet plans, (and more and more accessible price-wise), it is still possible to recommend holistic diets according to the patient’s clinical appearance, energy assessment, toxemia load and, inter alia, organoleptic system, the general core of which remains what it has been for the last 3 million years : seasonal, fresh, raw (and thus rich in enzymes, yeasts and ferments), whole and high plant-fiber based, low-calorie rich in attractive colors & odors, and devoid of toxins, disease-causing parasites, putrefaction via animal flesh & blood, stench, processing (be it oils, carbs, meats), as well as being free from inflammatory molecules and environmental and predatory stress, if only because the automatic sympathetic “fight or flee” system inhibits the flow of gastric juices. Thus, whether the diet is for a baby boomer or someone younger, the best Science shows that this above-mentioned fundamental holistic food core still applies to humans as a species-specific generality, albeit with some customizing according to circumstances, genetic variations and the patient’s lifestyle, geographic location and mindset. In functional medicine, there is a plethora of tests and lab work, from the Quick Silver tri-test for mercury to multiple panels for thyroid and other hormones, stool tests, imagery, ultrasound and much more. (….) Most of these tests are recommended because one or two tests is usually insufficient. For example, a urine test will only assess metabolites, meaning, for example, the break-down of some metabolic process, like hormones, whereas a blood test will measure a molecule like a hormone that is bound to a protein within a carrier which is the blood. Some of the key processes that are recommended to check are hormones, neurotransmitters, oxygenization, bowel movements & content, immune system and antibodies, inter alia via a CBC, the oral cavity tests like the Clifford test and more (peridontal disease are linked to chronic diseases and are too often neglected by Conventional medicine), sleep patterns., nutritional status tests, food sensitivites tests (Alcat), leaky gut syndrome tests, the sunshine (vitamin D) test and the like. (…) More sophisticated tests measuring biological age, gene transcription switches and methylation, thyroid function,  thermography, toxemia tests (eg hair, blood, oligoscan etc) and, among others, the body’s electrical circuits, including, but not limited to Electroencephalography, or EEG, monitors brain activity through the skull. ECG (electrocardiogram, the German spelling of which is elektrokardiogramm, or EKG) is a test which measures the electrical activity of the heart to show whether or not it is working normally. An ECG records the heart’s rhythm and activity on a moving strip of paper or a line on a screen. EMG, or Electromyography is a technique for evaluating and recording the electrical activity produced by muscles. NCV, or Nerve Conduction Velocity, is an electrical diagnostic test that provides information about abnormal conditions in the nerves. SSEP, or Somatosensory Evoked Potential, is a test showing the electrical signals of sensation going from the body to the brain and spinal cord.  If we have time, cancer tests will be included. Both normal and optimal ranges will be discussed as well as where to order these tests. Furthermore, we will discuss some conventional medicine’s testings, from ultrasound, to CT scans and, among others, MRIs, as these have been shown to be more dangerous than what was once thought and patients need to be informed to avoid serious complications and most times, they are not, meaning informed consent is not secured. From the holistic H.M Institute viewpoint, we found that the best approach is to assume the worse scenario and then to immediately start a reversal protocol. This way, the lab results will be  better, thanks to which the patient will be less stressed out.  Just the stress of a bad lab result can be a killer.  Lab testing and monitoring procedures can always be organize after the general treatment plan is started.
(10 a).The examination of the eyes can also inform the Health Professional about aging and, most importantly, the rate of aging, according to a study sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other organizations from around the world. The NIH sponsored a formal trial on eye diseases in the 1990s. That trial was called the AREDS, short for the Age-Related Eye Disease Study. The goal of the Age-Related Eye Disease Study was to learn about macular degeneration and cataract, two leading causes of vision loss in older adults….. Both the retina and the brain areas that are responsible for cognitive functioning originate from the same embryonic forward part of the brain (the prosencephalon). The premise of retinal involvement in cognitive functioning is supported by studies describing an increased prevalence of glaucoma in patients with Alzheimer’s disease. Other supportive evidence comes from postmortem tissue studies demonstrating retinal nerve cell loss in patients with AD, and from studies in living patients that have a reduced number of retinal ganglion cells and associated thinner RNFL thickness when they have AD. These studies make a compelling case for the connection between the processes occurring in the retinal nerve fiber layer and the brain of people with neurodegenerative conditions like Alzheimer’s disease. (Cf. Hinton DR, Sadun AA, Blanks JC, Miller CA. Optic-nerve degeneration in Alzheimer’s disease. N Engl J Med. 1986 Aug 21;315(8):485-7).
(10 b). However, if we look at the anecdotal, comparative analysis,  propective studies as well as epidmiological published sudies it is easy to prove that conventional oncology should be declared malpractice. Via this mentioned evidence, we find that holistic methods reverse terminal cases of cancer by over 60 for the majority of cases, but over 80 percent of 5 years survival of at least 40 percent of cases. A lot depends on the patient’s will to live and the holistic conditions under which he or she lives as well as on the collection of data.  But all in all, the analysis of the facts show that the “zip code” tends to be way superior in causative relevance to the “genetic code”. So if the patient lives in a stressful environment, chronic diseases risks are multiplied at least by ten and often over 40 times more risks . Regarding the five years remission rate,  conventional oncology is under 5 percent for solid cancer and around 40 percent for liquid cancers…..Today’s conventional oncology  approach is intrinsically moronic from the patient outcome perspective, but completely logical in terms of its cash-flow engine and consistent with the evil and-or misguided nature of those political and narcissistic-predatory sociopaths who choose to  deceive the People rather than telling them the truth about how toxic and often fatal their “cut-burn-poison” interventions are while never informing the patient of other more gentle and cost-friendly holistic options. Widely occuring in the United States,  these forms of informed consent violations are rarely prosecuted.
(11) The Metabolic syndrome, which affects a majority of Americans, is a cluster of conditions that increase blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol & triglyceride levels, all of which  occur together, increasing one’s risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney failure, cancer and an early & painful death. By treating allopathically (with the Government’s official mainstream’s medicine), only symptoms of chronic diseases via patented drugs, (e.g. medication relative to cholesterol, blood sugar, insulin, leptin, ghrelin, cortisol, thyroid hormones, beta amyloid plaques, inter alia) without holistically addressing the root causes is both profitable for the medical-industry and deplorable for the patient’s wellbeing and longevity. For example, cholesterol lowering statins are known to promote dementia and cardiovascular catastrophes while deleting key enzymes, yet most mainstream cardiologists will tell the patient that medicine is about benefits-risks trade-offs while holistic & metabolic cardiologists will treat more the patient in his or her totality versus the drug treatment of a heart symptom or cholesterol numbers. As for Non Alcohol Fatty Liver Disease, a new epidemic that is affecting over 20 percent of the American population, this talk will also show how holistic medicine is clinically superior to allopathic mainstream medicine insofar as the control and reversal of this disease is concerned as well as different endocrine disease epidemics including, but not limited to the Low Testosterone, STD and Infertility Epidemics which are affecting the survival of the Nation.
(12). While other non-conventional modalities of medicine (osteopathic, naturopathic, homeopathy, thermal medicine, acupuncture and other altlernative medical schools) are responsible for very few deaths and harm and massive healing, conventional allopathic medicine has been proven to be either the first or the third cause of premature death and collective suffering (ie, depending on the Journal, the figures  are in between 350,000 and 900,000 avoidable American deaths each year). (Source) One of the reasons that accounts for the magnitude of such collective harm is based on greed and short term monetary interests that the legal system promotes. The evidence clearly shows that those who control the conventional allopathic medical and legal systems, including Research, education and public regulatory structures, prefer to focus on the downstream phases of the disease process, as opposed to the root causes. In other words, symptomatology prevails over holistic solutions. Worse, neither the mainstream private sector nor the Government’s institutions have mandated the teaching of Holistic Medicine and its Fundamental Principles. On the contrary, the Government has regularly institutionalized rules to prosecute holistic medicine and suppress long-term solutions. One small piece of evidence showing the Government’s hostility and-or indifference to holistic longevity medicine can be seen via the public sector’s research tree. Of the 27 N.I.H Institutes & Centers mandated to study the Health Sciences, not one is devoted to nutrition, let alone holistic and happiness medicine. Worse, it has been  illegal to even research the benefits of certain millennia healing plants (like canabis, for ex., it’s ok to research its negative effects, but not ok to research it’s positive effects) and before Hitler’s war, the innocent fermented grape was demonized and banned without an substantive evidence (ie, evidence offered to support a fact in issue) as to harm. And still to this day, misguided ideologues who control the Government’s public health institutions have not issued public recommendations and education campaigns to promote the use of safe quality wine to better address the number one killer, cardiovascular diseases, inter alia. Furthermore, among dozens of other examples, those individuals who control the Government continue to refuse to grant funds to research  holistic cancer protocols, let alone other holistic chronic disease approaches and the deleterious effects of thousands of persistent chemicals including, but not limited to the forced toxic water fluoridation as well as to the second most toxic poison on Earth, mercury, the  impact of which is as pervasive and davastating as lead, one of the leading causes of the Roman Empire’s demise. And to this day, contrarily to other Democracies,  the Government still mandates mercury fillings, including on its military. Etcetera with some ad nauseum.
(13) For example, millions of Americans went to jail for using medical cannabis, and before that, during Prohibition, thousands for drinking “healing medicinal wine” and tens of  thousands of Americans have had their licenses and-or their assets and-or their freedom removed for practicing alternative medicine and, among other indelicacies, over two hundred millions Americans are suffering from chronic diseases and-or significant deleterious toxic chemicals as a result of lawmakers’ partnership with toxic business, including but not limited to the FDA’s  “dental mercury” hired-gun commissioner and, among many other examples, to Congress’ promotion of Monsanto’s cancer-causing glyphosate, another drug that has been patented as an antibiotic, but used as a soil pesticide, one  consequence of which is the promotion intestinal permeability and auto-immune diseases among tens of millions of Americans (cf proof via power point). (….) All dental amalgam restorations contain approximately 50% mercury, and reports and research are consistent that these fillings emit mercury, exposing dental patients, dental professionals, dental staff, and their fetuses to this known neurotoxin. Additionally, in research published in 2011, Dr. G. Mark Richardson reported that more than 67 million Americans aged two years and older exceed the intake of mercury vapor considered “safe” by the U.S. EPA due to the presence of dental mercury amalgam fillings, whereas over 122 million Americans exceed the intake of mercury vapor considered “safe” by the California EPA due to their dental mercury amalgam fillings. Whereas some groups have endorsed dental mercury, touted dental amalgam safety, and claimed that there are no peer-reviewed articles on its dangers, this is simply not the truth.  Numerous peer-reviewed, scientific studies report risks associated with dental mercury amalgam fillings.  In fact, over 200 scientific articles produced in the international literature search can be found through the U.S. National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health. (…) Furthermore, Persistent, low-level exposure to lead over decades is statistically linked to some 400,000 premature deaths in the United States each year, far more than previously thought. Compared to people with little or no lead in their blood, those with high levels—at least 6.7 milligrammes per decilitre (mg/dl)—were 37 percent more likely to die early, according to a study in The Lancet Public Health while the risk of succumbing to  doubled in such cases. Low levels of  are an important, but largely ignored, risk factor for death from cardiovascular disease,” mainly heart attacks and strokes.
(14). A few years ago, the problem of judicial dementia has prompted calls for reconsideration of life tenure for federal judges, but those who control the Government and the Courts, despite their rhetoric and mumbo jumbo, usually prefer inaction over progress and to my knowledge, nothing has been done since to fix this problem. Life tenure is suppose to protect judicial independence, but in reality, the system generates close to 20 percent of senile Federal judges (out of the 1200 purportedly blessed (appointed) by the Chief Executive) while the rest (not all, just most) tend to be ideologically entrenched in the two political party ideology and idolatry with little if any training and interest in the People’s fundamental rights let alone in “ius cogens” law and the Nation’s superior interests and wellbeing as a whole. (Cf. Source) To make matters worse, up to 36 percent of lawyers (and 99 percent of judges are lawyers),  have a serious hard alcohol disorder (according to an official survey, this means that those who work with the Law have up to 5 times more alcoholism than the general population), and most don’t live a holistic life, inter alia, all of which means that we the People have allowed unreliable and impaired minds to interpret an already poorly drafted and approved US Constitution, all of which necessarily affects the People health rights (ie, this foundational text was hastily ratified (approved) by a small minority of lawyers and wealthy hemp-producing political rebels in the late 18th century, 1791 i recall, leaving out women, African-blacks, Indigenous Reds and the poor who had no land and therefore, were stripped of their inalienable voting rights with regard to the ratification of the Constitution and subsequent elections).
(14 a). “Standard of care’ sounds like a medical term, but it is a universal legal concept. It is codified differently by individual state statutes and is written into each state’s uniform jury instructions. The phrase increasingly appears in scientific articles discussing the management of patients with headaches. But, the term usually is not defined nor is evidence presented to justify the notion that the so-called standard has any scientific basis. In a courtroom, jury instructions using this phrase can be a legal sword aimed at a defendant doctor, rather than a shield. At risk is a physician’s basic right to care for a patient according to that individual’s particular needs. Strauss et. al., state in their article titled, What does the medical profession mean by “standard of care? “There is no medical definition for standard-of-care, although the term is firmly established in law and is defined as ‘the caution that a reasonable person in similar circumstances would exercise in providing care to a patient.” The term represents an essential component of an action in medical malpractice in proof that the doctor in question failed to provide the required standard of care under the circumstances.
(15). Even though Dietary and herbal Supplements need to be labeled as such (Source), they are generally not within the medical purview of the F.D.A. as their manufacturers usually don’t make medical  claims. If they did, the Government would then consider them as drugs and would subsequently require from the manufacturer tens or even hundreds of millions of dollars for drug safety and efficiency evaluation via the three phases of clinical trials. However, certain supplements can be deemed to be food additives, and as such, they could theoretically be under the FDA’s jurisdiction. But most are not and are treated under the Dietary Supplement and-or GRAS policies. Under GRAS, they can be what is called “presumptively GRAS”. Dating back to 1958, GRAS “is a legal term describing certain food ingredients that are safe enough to enter the market without prior government approval or restrictions.” The GRAS acronym means “generally recognized as safe”.The GRAS process established streamlined decision making, allowing manufacturers to get their products to market faster and with minimal (if any) oversight. In other words, the  GRAS determination is not made by any federal agency, rather it falls under the decision making of the manufacturer that created the ingredient or product, which is a blatant conflict of interest. American companies, including supplement companies therefore determine for themselves whether  they meets the GRAS standards. With GRAS status, an item requires no prior FDA approval before going to market. Companies can voluntarily submit their GRAS determination for review by the FDA, but are not required. In reviewing GRAS determination, including for GMO foods, the FDA does not perform any independent research or testing, relying solely on information provided by the company. Contarily to Europe where the “precautionary principle” applies, dietary supplements, like personal care products in the USA are not required to be proven safe to FDA’s satisfaction before they are marketed. They are therefore free to poison people, for example, half of lipsticks contain lead and many dietary and herbal non-organic supplements can contain persistent pollutants, endocrine disruptors and heavy metals, including fish oils. Furthermore, for most claims made in the labeling of dietary supplements, the law does not require the manufacturer or seller to prove to FDA’s satisfaction that the claim is accurate or truthful before it appears on the product. In general, FDA’s role with a dietary supplement product begins after the product enters the marketplace. In this perspective, “…the United States shall bear the burden of proof on each element to show that a dietary supplement is adulterated” (Source) That is usually the agency’s first opportunity to take action against a product that presents a significant or unreasonable risk of illness or injury, or that is otherwise adulterated or misbranded. Dietary supplement advertising, including ads broadcast on  radio and television, falls under the jurisdiction of the Federal Trade Commission. Once a dietary supplement is on the market, FDA has certain safety monitoring responsibilities. These include monitoring mandatory reporting of serious adverse events by dietary supplement firms and voluntary adverse event reporting by consumers and health care professionals. As its resources permit, FDA also reviews product labels and other product information, such as package inserts, accompanying literature, and Internet promotion. Dietary supplement firms must report to FDA any serious adverse events that are reported to them by consumers or health care professionals. Dietary supplement manufacturers do not have to get the agency’s approval before producing or selling these products.  As indicated earlier, the main issue with dietary supplements is subsumed in its disclaimer, that it can not claim to treat or cure any specific disease, or to alleviate the symptoms of a disease.  (Source) Once that prerequisite is established, the supplement’s manufacturer is even free to hide certain elements that go into its product, characterizing it as “proprietary”. Hence, caveat emptor, “consumer beware”, is the general principle to apply.  Given this legal landscape, both the consumer and health practitioner would be well advised to benefit from evidentiary evaluation tools that can help to make a scientific determination on the safety and efficiency of supplements. For more legal education on health related topics, see this link.. ….In relation to omega 3s, the essential fatty acid called omega six is generally inflammatory. Animal foods, vegetable oils and processed foods are rich in this type of fat. And highly inflammatory when ingested. On the other hand, vitamin E rich seeds like pumpkin, sunflower and sesame are also very high in omega 6s, much more than omega 3s and 9s. Yet, these plant seeds have an anti-inflammatory effect. (Source) Thus, if one is serious about finding a diet that is consistent with evolutionary biology and nutritional  science, it should be acknowledged that animal versus plant-based macro-molecules are not of the same nature, even if molecularly, they may be similar. From the scientific viewpoint adopted by H.M. Institute’s team, food “experts” like Drs Hymans, Mercola, Sinatra, Axe, Berg, Kesser & nutritionists like Suzan Somers and David Asprey and many others in the paleo-keto fields are in self-denial about key facts that govern human nature, evolutionary design and objective nutritional science. Even Dr Oz is slowly changing his position on this aspect of nutrition. (See Exhibit F)….While genomic testing is a good way to determine customized diet plans, (and more and more accessible price-wise), it is still possible to recommend holistic diets according to the patient’s clinical appearance, energy assessment, toxemia load and, inter alia, organoleptic system, the general core of which remains what it has been for the last 3 million years : seasonal, fresh, raw (and thus rich in enzymes, yeasts and ferments), whole and high plant-fiber based, low-calorie rich in attractive colors & odors, and devoid of toxins, disease-causing parasites, putrefaction via animal flesh & blood, stench, processing (be it oils, carbs, meats), as well as being free from inflammatory molecules and environmental and predatory stress, if only because the automatic sympathetic “fight or flee” system inhibits the flow of gastric juices. Thus, whether the diet is for a baby boomer or someone younger, the best Science shows that this above-mentioned fundamental holistic food core still applies to humans as a species-specific generality, albeit with some customizing according to circumstances, genetic variations and the patient’s lifestyle, geographic location and mindset.
(16). Worse, when Conventional Oncology’s militarist and symptomatic weapons bombard their membranes with an onslaught of free radicals coming from cytotoxic chemo and ionic radiation, cancer stem cells not only upregulated their own repair genes, but they dispatch sos signals to muster help from other cells, including bacteria. Once repaired, these cancer stem cells reinforce their protection system, mutate and become stronger, hence the “cancer chemo-resistance” phenomenon, a resistance which is nothing less than a defense response based on millions and millions years of evolutionary biology. Thereafter, cancer stem cells’ DNA sends signals to the blood coagulation cascade system in order to thicken the hosts blood, this way, metastastic cells can better adhere to distant tissues and continue their genetically programmed task. This cellular “imperialism” continues until the Host dies from coagulation clots, infections from a weakened immune system, “chemo-radiation and surgery” complications or extreme cachexia. So this is the data from today’s advanced cancer research. Chemo and radiation do kill fast growing cells like tumor, gastrointestinal and immune cells, but not cancer stem cells. These are the “generals” while the tumor cells that get killed en mass are the infantry. For over ten years now, the evidence has corroborated that these mainstream “standards of care” that we call chemo and radio therapies  turn healthy cells into cancer cells and make cancer stem cells, the engines of metastasis, stronger, if only because these types of cells, (a small subset of tumor cells)  are not fast growing, thus they can easily outwit mainstream corporate oncology lab scientists. Worse, it is these “progenitor” circulatory cancer stem cells which are the engines of metastases, not the tumors cells that get torpedoed by chemo’s poison and radiation’s fire. So these then are the key established facts from which to develop a healing plan. But mainstream oncologists don’t, if only because they have been indoctrinated to believe that the natural course of cancer’s malignacy is an unstoppable metastasis process that can only be mitigated with violent modalities like chemo, radiation, surgery and targeted suppression interventions. Hence the relative failure of conventional oncology. While it is true that liquid cancers (E.g., in particular, leukemias and lymphomas) fare better conventionally than the solid cancers, most conventional cancer patients will suffer and be impaired from the toxic effects of these violence-based treatments in one way or another (ie, scar tissues, heart disease, other cancers, brain disorders and autoimmune diseases etc), including after the five year mark. As a result, for most cancers, conventional oncology is a problem insofar as the patient’s birthright  to thrive and reach the supercentenarian Life is concerned. See the website AdvancedCancerResearch.org for the citation confirmations of some of the above-mentioned facts.
(17). However, because in Life and medicine, there are many howevers, the body is quite resilient, especially when there is an upbeat proactive attitude and strong spirit that animates the individual. So even damaged people can achieve long lifespans, provided they embrace holistic lifestyle. In Dean Ornishes studies on the upregulating of good health genes and the down regulating diseased or “dirty” genes, he amply showed that what counts is Lifestyle and attitude. I remember him saying that the more a chronic diseased patient would practice lifestyle modification, the better his or her results measured in biomarkers. More and more geroscientists are actually looking at aging as a treatable disease. At the Happiness Medicine Institute though, we only see accelarated aging as a treatable disease. So far, notwithstanding what the Bible and certain geroscientists claim, there is no evidence that shows that the human body can live “eternally” or over 200 years, let alone 1000 years. But under holistic conditions, almost everyone should be able to reach 110 to 120 year.
(18). SNPs = Single nucleotide polymorphisms, frequently called SNPs (pronounced “snips”), are the most common type of genetic variation among people. Each SNP represents a difference in a single DNA building block, called a nucleotide. For example, a SNP may replace the nucleotide cytosine (C) with the nucleotide thymine (T) in a certain stretch of DNA. SNPs occur normally throughout a person’s DNA. They occur once in every 300 nucleotides on average, which means there are roughly 10 million SNPs in the human genome. Most commonly, these variations are found in the DNA between genes. They can act as biological markers, helping scientists locate genes that are associated with disease. When SNPs occur within a gene or in a regulatory region near a gene, they may play a more direct role in disease by affecting the gene’s function. Most SNPs have no effect on health or development. Some of these genetic differences, however, have proven to be very important in the study of human health. Researchers have found SNPs that may help predict an individual’s response to certain drugs, susceptibility to environmental factors such as toxins, and risk of developing particular diseases. SNPs can also be used to track the inheritance of disease genes within families. Future studies will work to identify SNPs associated with complex diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. (Source) For example, centenarians not only have retarded biological ages, they’re also more likely to carry specific gene variations (called single nucleotide polymorphisms, or SNPs) that protect against disease. A study published last year found five regions in the human genome where such SNPs reside. In one region, certain SNPs lowered the risk for Alzheimer’s disease, high cholesterol and pancreatic cancer. In a second, the SNPs protected against heart disease and diabetes. In a third, they made lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, heart disease and rheumatoid arthritis less likely. Etcetera.
(19). Progress is not necessarily more hospitals, more drugs, more surgeries, more radiation, more hi-tech procedures, more cell phone health apps, more imagery or even more supplements and the like. Progress may be fewer of these symptomatology orienting “things”, as long as holistic science in combination with responsible public health policies and a genuine health-care system prevail. Bio-tech innovation is good. But the application of the  Fundamentals in every day life (i, e. restorative sleep, healthy nutrition, exercises, detox, purpose, emotional support, rest, quality water, chronic stress management  etc) are still the keys to Progress and so far, mainstream Government officials and their lackeys appear to be seriously deviating from both these basics and Reason, including from using inexpensive nutrition as medicine. Food has been shown to improve the expression of thousands of genes, to harmonize dozens of hormones, to optimize tens of thousands of protein networks, to reduce inflammation, and optimize your microbiome (gut flora) etc. Yet, quality & small amounts of wine and low calorie high fiber foods are still not considered medicine, if only because both mainstream voters and the U.S. Supreme Court life-appointed Justices have willingly allowed malignant businesses to pervert public institutions and sicken hundreds of millions of American with toxic foods and bad medicine, thus feeding the epidemics of non alcohol fatty liver diseases, to metabolic, gastro-intestinal, immune and brain disorders (e.g., today, thirty percent of American   non-adults suffer from childhood chronic diseases, for adults, pets and wild-life, it’s worse). There is more cash-flow to be generated by suppressing the symptom versus resolving the problem, and all the more so that most symptomatic treatments that come from the Conventional Medicine Business model promote complications and a worse prognosis, notwithstanding some short term relief and usefulness with emergency medicine and the like. The evidence shows these allegations to be true in most chronic diseases including in cancer and accelerated aging. This Workshop will thus focus less on the Government’s public health, geriatrics & sick-care standards than on empirically-based holistic longevity techniques, most of which continue to be neglected by misguided conventional medical schools whose deans continue to compartmentalize Medicine into separate disciplines without a unifying holistic paradigm……As usual in the mainstream, there are  at least two and often many sides with competiting and often opposing claims about almost any issue in Medicine. So is Medicine more of an art than a science ? As Medicine is linked to Consciousness and because the consciousness that all sentient beings experience is personal and unique, it is necessary to be in tune with one’s Consciousness in other to heal and reach one’s lifespan potential. That’s why shamanic herbs like Ayawashka, the Tibetan herbs that centenarian use and the fermented vine juices  (red wine) the European centenarians drink can be strongly therapeutic. In moderation and taken holistically, these plants help with Consciousness. There are other tools, including breathing and medication tools,, among others,  that this workshop explores.
(20). Just around three years ago, scientists from the Standord University School of Medicine  were able to tweak cells to considerably lengthen their internal telomere clocks, up to 40 times more than untreated cells. “Now we have found a way to lengthen human telomeres by as much as 1,000 nucleotides, turning back the internal clock in these cells by the equivalent of many years of human life,” said the lead scientist. (Source)  These researchers delivered a modified RNA that encoded a telomere-extending protein to cultured human cells. By itself, this is quite a scientific feat, but it remains a petri dish one. From a petri dish to mammals, including humans, the leap is still huge. Nonetheless, this breakthrough continues to excite many biogerontologists and geroscientists. Furthermore, to ensure that families have access to emerging regenerative treatments, a few biogerontologists are recommending  that children’s autologous stem cells should be recovered and cryo-preserved during routine dental procedures for use in future therapies and treatments.
(21). Contrarily to Jeanne Calment, no verifiable birth records were found for the mountain herbalist supercenternarian Li Ching-Yuen. However, there appears to be some credible evidence from testimonial and published sources  in the Chinese literature to support the claim that Li  lived to at least 197 years. In this workshop-seminar, we will briefly show evidence of age and some of Li’s “secrets” or “ingredients” that got him to live such a long and dense life., two of which are mountain herbs and wine.

(22). Biogerontology is a sub-field of gerontology, it is concerned with the biological aging process, its evolutionary origins, and potential means to intervene in the process. While it does share common fields of analyses as geroscience, biogerontology focuses more on the molecular and biochemical causes of aging. (For more on this topic, click here). Biogerontology is coming of age. It now seems clear that a fundamental understanding of the molecular pathways underlying age-related pathology has the potential to translate into a net economic impact of over a trillion dollars a year in the US alone and to alleviate a massive toll of human suffering. At the same time, a tidal wave of aging post World War II baby boomers is poised to begin flooding the shores of the health care system within the coming decade. It is therefore now strategic and timely for medical research to turn its attention to the molecular and cellular mech- anisms of aging and age-related disease. However, one of the largest barriers to successful intervention in aging is likely psychological rather than technological. A widespread misperception persists that modifying human aging borders on the impossible. However, this skepticism is not supported by science. There are now numerous examples of therapies based on fundamental insights in molecular biogerontology that are in clinical development, and many more such therapies are expected to unfold over time scales ranging from the near term to the more distant future. Meanwhile, we have the Fundamentals and the Optimal Longevity Code whose application can give us three to four more decades in relation to the norm. Avoiding the major chronic diseases is good, but according to Professors Longo and Wattson, this avoidance will only bestow on average around 15 extra years. To reach at least 120 years in good shape, there is a need to better tweak aging’s hallmarks.
(*). Up to 80 percent of the immune system and its genes is part of the gut system while the brain is in a constant two ways communicatory and dynamic network with the microbiota’s 3.4 million genes and trillions of proteins. Both these bodily functions (gut and brain) derive from the same embryonic cells all humans have been designed with, so they need to be both diligently addressed with a synergistic approach. Furthermore, intestinal permeability (leaky gut syndrome) has been determined to be a key component of chronic inflammation and autoimmunity, the chronic condition of which affects over 100 million Americans. Thus, holistically addressing leaky gut and its sister, leaky brain, is worthy of a few supporting power-point slides that will accompany this introductory afternoon talk, the substance of which focuses on one of the preliminary conditions that needs prompt activation, a clean,  efficient and toxicity-protected gastro-intestinal and neurological system. If the majority of Americans are to achieve their healthy lifespan birth-right of 120 years, it thus starts in the gut chakra, as showed the longevity record breaker, Jeanne Calment, the unflappable dancer and dark chocolate enthusiast who relished red wine and the French Mediterranean diet rich in fiber, fermented foods, healthy essential fatty acid foods, bitters, olives, key herbs and the like. In this above-mentioned perspective, this talk will examine the efficiency, safety and cost-friendliness of detoxification and gut restoration holistic techniques insofar as the reversal and-or mitigation of mental disorders are concerned. In addition, we will be presenting fresh data with actionable holistic techniques on metabolic detox via methylation and this pathway’s genes as well as new compelling evidence on key bacilli spores that both resist the stomach’s low PH and enhance the microbiome’s diversity and cohesion like few do. Despite claims to the contrary, most of probiotics sold on the market get destroyed by the stomach’s acid. On the other hand, the bacterial spores that this workshop will discuss benefit from evolutionary built-in protein and polysaccharide coatings that resist the corrosive gastric juices, thanks to which they can get into the intestines to perform their magic. And once these sophisticated live critters arrive in the gut’s “milieu” and get organized, they act like grand orchestra conductors within both the microbiome’s genes and the microbiota’s live matter, zapping deleterious bacteria & archaea with their natural and selective antibiotics while enriching the beneficial ones, thanks to which cellular metabolic pathways get holistically optimized to the point where the patient’s “joie de vivre” sentiment and longevity genes are better expressed.

The art of medicine consists in amusing the patient while Nature cures the disease.”  Voltaire. One of 18th century Voltaire’s lessons to heal and be happy is to “cultivate one’s garden” (cf in his book Condide), that which can be translated to mean the cultivation of the low-key attitude of being joyfully humble and humbly joyful with an uplifting sense of both awe and gratitude, what is called in France “la joie de vivre”. Once this Vibe inhabitates patients, hospitals as we know them will cease to exist as will most weapons of Life destruction. To the American Second Amendment fanatics, 19th century Victor Hugo, in agreement with the Bible’s Eclesiaste, opined that History’s Progress necessarily implicates the ban of these products, except for museums. When joy prevails over fear, unity over division, mindful concern over indifference and a holistic lifestyle over mainstream entropy and hysteria, then almost nothing can stop the patient from desiring and achieving a heathy long life while helping others to do the same.
