So many factors come into play when discussing the issue of eliminating aging and prolonging life. Roadblocks to research include scientific limitations, acceptance by the general public and financing. Our guest, Dr. Aubrey de Grey discusses the possible benefits to intervening in the natural aging process and how we might someday control life-threatening diseases at the cellular level.

Do you have stick-to-it-iveness? This 70-year study finds persistence and consistency to be major factors in how long people will live. It also dispels the popular belief that optimism increases your chances of smiling yourself into old age. Jason speaks with the authors of The Longevity Project about common and uncommon factors which may add years to human’s lives.

Insurance coverage is changing and it may no longer be the health vehicle it was originally designed to be. Taking your health into your own hands and determining the core underlying issues causing your health problems will be your first step to finding your cure. Boone Zavik from Immunolabs describes how a simple blood test, called bloodprint can alert us to food sensitivities we may not know we have. He recommends not eating 5 particular foods and advises us to eat foods which benefit our gastronomical flora.

If marketers had their way we would all be sitting in front of a screen with a cold can of beer in our hands. This lifestyle most of us accept as the norm can be devastating to our health. The blue light emitted from computer screens and cell phones interrupt our natural sleep patterns. Proper sleep is one of the big three imperatives for better health. Consuming alcohol causes depression, dehydration and reduces our motor functions. So why do we continue to abuse our bodies?
Our guest, James Swanwick, challenges us to consider how our lives can be better without alcohol and shows us how to get better sleep with his blue light reducing, Swannies. He practices what he preaches. He created the video based, 30-Day No Alcohol Challenge to help people reduce the amount of alcohol they consume by keeping them accountable through an online support network. He is also the creator of Swannies, the stylish glasses which if worn 90-min before sleeping, support your natural sleep patterns.

Most of us don’t view aging as a disease, which is why many possible treatments and methods go underfunded and never make it past the theory stage. If Laura Deming has her way all of this will change in the near future. She has been obsessed with finding a cure for aging since she was a teenager. She became a venture capitalist after leaving MIT because she was frustrated with the current system in which academia chases funding. She says even if you don’t have money to invest you can still help the cause by disseminating the information within your social and familial networks.

Mobility or lack of it can make or break your positive outlook and disrupt your daily routine. Old fitness terms such as no pain, no gain are outdated and can confuse us when understanding what constitutes progress and what exercises are hurting us. Even modified yoga poses can cause stress on parts of the body which may not be flexible enough due to an injury or chronic pain. Our guest Debbie Siebers, tells us the key is consistent movement and proper breathing. She talks us through some stretching techniques and offers us advice on mediation methods.

A pH below 7.0 is acidic. A pH above 7.0 is alkaline. Good things to know, but what does it all mean for your health and longevity? This week we talk with Ralph McRae from Leading Brands, the company behind Happy Water. Happy water is an alkaline water which combines spring water with mineral water. The mineral water contains a naturally occurring amount of lithia, the main component of the pharmaceutical drug Lithium. Lithia doesn’t extend your life expectancy, but the company claims it adds quality to your life no matter how many years you are gifted.

The practice of regenerative medicine through stem cells has only been practiced for 12 years, making it a comparatively new option. And while it doesn’t cure people it makes them better offering the body an added defense. The treatment includes an intravenous holistic approach and targeted injections for inflamed areas. The science behind the procedure is taken directly from naturally occurring body processes. While no one can know what the future holds especially in these early stages of regenerative medicines’ development but the current track record is promising.

People are able to perceive a fear of all kinds of interesting things. To move past these fears many turn to hypnotherapy to make a change from the inside out. A hypnotherapy session includes the programming or reprogramming of your subconscious mind based on words and sounds. Jason’s guest Dr. Steve G. Jones’s has 5 parts to his hypnosis techniques and they are induction, deepening, script, amnesia and trans-termination. He has successfully practiced and taught this process since the 1980’s. There are people who are more susceptible to hypnosis but this doesn’t mean they have a weak mind. In fact, there are special techniques applied to the recordings to pinpoint those who may have a more analytical mind. If you are interested in making a change in your life listen in.

Your pineal gland has been a victim of Sodium Fluoride intake through the water you drink and through products used on your body for many years. The addition of this chemical to everyday products has been used by the wealthy as means of profit driven control. Therefore, many people have limited communication with their spiritual selves and have high levels of toxicity in their bodies. You are able to access and detoxify your pineal gland through meditation and proper breathing techniques. Cleansing your pineal gland or third eye allows you to connect your physical and metaphysical worlds.

Everything is connected. We need to start treating the whole person through inclusive health methods rather than treating certain symptoms. Our lives are filled with one thing after another, our schedules so full we get frustrated just looking at the calendar. Any type of stress causes dehydration which leads to rapid aging as our cells become dryer and dryer. Humans need to work on their emotional health as well as their physical health. The genders have different water levels and both males and females will lose water over time with women losing more. It’s important to keep our bodies hydrated through proper diet and exercise to slow the breakdown of cells which slows the aging process. Skin care is important both inside and out.

It’s hard to find many positive statistics from hospitals these days. Preventable deaths are third only to heart disease and cancer as the number one killer of patients. As hospitals try to accommodate nurses schedule preferences of 4 days a week with long shifts, Patient care is experiencing killer drops in effectiveness and proficiency. The problem stems from the lack of communication between hospital staff and their patients. And with patients having the most to lose the responsibility is resting on their shoulders. This book hopes to help patients ask the right questions and prevent deaths based on simple human error.
[1:05] 400,000 deaths were preventable in the U.S.
