Introduction (30 minutes)

“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))
“It is believed that as much as 80% of all disease and illness is initiated and aggravated by stress.” The National Safety Council

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). (11)

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.

Addressing how Holistic  & Happiness Medicine can successfully resolve most Physiological Disorders

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

(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 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)

To Honey or Not to Honey ? And New Findings of Hydration

Section  under Construction

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)

“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
“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 detoxificationheavy 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 telomeraseglutathione 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”. Same with the French word “santé” (health), which comes from sainteté (being saintly). 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. Dr. Claude Bernard, demonstrated beyond any reasonable doubt with myriad experimentations (so many that his wife got upset) that the conditions of the internal environment dictated Life. Today, this conclusion has been recently confirmed via the Government’s NIH’s microbiome project of 2008, close to two centuries after the French relevant discoveries. 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.

Screening Fasting or Protection

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)

To Fish or not to Fish ?

More and more plant-strong vegan scientists are claiming that all fish are deleterious to human health as well as to the environment.  In this presentation, we will look at the data and determine if the SMASH hypothesis is anchored in scientific reality. SMASH means “sardines, mackerel, anchovies, salmon and herring”, the small wild clean omega-3 fish that are recommended by non vegan scientists. Since the environment, sustainability and fish welfare are necessarily associated to human nutrition and longevity, we will also examine this question. Vegans also argue that scared sentient fish produce stress-based cortisol that acidifies human blood, are full of deleterious putrefying bacteria, cholesterol, saturated fat and suffer needlessly. We will also consider these points as well as the key element relative to DHA and conclude on the relevance of all of this for healthy human longevity, Animal welfare and Ocean sustainability.

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)

“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
“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)
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.

Is Bible Medicine consistent with Science and Holistic Rejuvenation ?

Section under construction. The Bible invokes multiple healing techniques that we use in Holistic medicine, from fasting, to wine, herbs, oils, food, meditation, prayer and more. In this Presentation, we will examine a few of these elements.

Some, but not SDA

Community Medicine

From Microbe Collectivities (biofilms) to Human Eco-villages

Could “Joie de Vivre” (JDV) be the New “Currency” (I.e., Exchange of Energy System) that would Spur the Re-organization of the Health-care and Social System ?

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 Vitality & 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)

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