Could we be living twice as long?
Telomeres are the tips of strands of human DNA and researchers say that it is the natural lifelong reduction in the length and integrity of these DNA tips, which is responsible for the phenomenon of aging. "Every time DNA cells divide, we lose a little bit of telomere length and eventually the loss is what prevents proper cell division and limits human life," said C. Norman Shealy, a Harvard-trained neurosurgeon, renowned pain expert, holistic healer and longevity researcher. "If we were able to prevent the natural loss of telomere length of 1 percent per year and instead regrow telomeres at 3 to 4 percent per year, healthy humans could live twice as long as they do today," says Dr. Shealy. But is telomere regrowth actually possible? According to Dr. Shealy's recent study the answer is yes. "For the first time, we have shown in a clinical study that telomeres can be regenerated in healthy people," says Dr. Shealy.
Dr. Shealy says for 30 to 60 minutes per day, the 30 participants in his study reclined on a therapeutic mattress designed by Dr. Shealy which used a Tesla coil to create an electromagnetic field over the mattress resonating at the human DNA frequency of 54 to 78 GHz. "We found that instead of losing 1 percent of telomere length per year, 70 percent of the study's participants increased their telomere lengths an average of 3 to 4 percent per year over the five-year study," says Dr. Shealy.
"Sustained growth of telomeres of at these rates has the potential to double the lifespan of healthy people," says Dr. Shealy, who presented the study's findings at the Southern Medical Association and the Society for Free Radical Biology and Medicine. Dr. Shealy says he is continuing his work in the field of developing therapies to increase telomere length. In August, he will be presenting results of a pilot study that explores the possibility that certain essential oil blends which he has formulated (called "Bliss Oils") applied to regions of the body connected by energetic acupuncture circuits ("The 5 Rings") may produce the same telomere growth rate that the resonating electromagnetic mattress (commercially available as the RejuvaMatrix Solar Homeopathy mattress) produced in the study.
"If the Bliss Oils produce telomere growth, we will be able to offer people an inexpensive, life-extending therapy that they can do themselves in three minutes-a-day," says Dr. Shealy. Dr. Shealy says more results of the Bliss Oils study are expected in within the next month. More information can be found at Dr. Shealy's Web site, www.normshealy.com.
