including Dr. Oz episode on Aging …

In this episode Dr. Oz defines telomeres, which keep chromosomes from fraying. A properly functioning telomere will keep chromosomes healthy. Healthy chromosome keep the body in a good state of repair. All organs can be replenished with new cells if we have functioning telomeres. “Aging is not about avoiding breakage—that’s not what it’s about. Aging is about repairing what’s broken,” Oz says. “When you lose the ability to repair, you become frail.”

But if you are worn down by stress, your telomeres will break down. “And then guess what? You can’t reproduce your cells anymore,” Dr. Oz says. “And when you can’t reproduce cells, you’re old and you’re frail.”

Dr. Oz says telomeres contain new information about aging that is vitally important. While doctors used to think that only certain organs could rebuild themselves, they now know that all our organs can be replenished with new cells if we have functioning telomeres. There is much to be learned about telomeres and what damages them (reactive oxidative chemicals) and how to prevent that damage (antioxidants). Telomeres are also related somehow to tumor suppression. Senescence and cancerous tumor control are possibly somehow in a balancing act that is related to telomere status.

Number 1 Ager? STRESS. Dr. Oz explains how the pituitary gland and hypothalamus are the mind/body connection at the brain. How there is a communication with the adrenal glands on the kidneys that secrete epinephrine to activate the body for fight or flight. But the body has a countermeasure to most processes — and the countermeasure to the adrenal drive is the vagus nerve. Vagus is Latin for the wandering nerve. The signals going away from the brain along the vagus nerve involve relaxing processes. But recently researchers have found that the vagus nerve sends a lot of stress messages back to the brain

Anti-stress mineral in nutrition? Magnesium. One of Magnesium’s anti-stress properties is relaxation of muscle.

Dr. Oz also explained the Biophysical250 bloodmarker test.

The Biophysical250 surveys the biomarkers in your blood that could indicate many conditions and diseases including:

Cardiovascular disease (such as risk for heart attack and stroke)
Cancer (including breast, colon, liver, ovarian, prostate and pancreatic)
Metabolic disorders (such as diabetes and metabolic syndrome)
Autoimmune disease (including rheumatoid arthritis and lupus)
Viral and bacterial diseases (such as mononucleosis and pneumonia)
Hormonal imbalance (including menopause, testosterone deficiency, thyroid deficiency)
Nutritional status (such as vitamin deficiencies, protein deficiencies)

See more information about the Biophysical250 at Biophysicalcorp.com …

If you can’t get around to the Biophysical250, Dr. Oz recommends at least the following top 5 important markers:

Blood Sugar
Thyroid Hormone
Vitamin D
Red Blood Cell Count

H test. Brain alertness is part of an electrical grid (Alzheimer’s or trauma messes up the grid) In 40 seconds people should be able to cross out all of the ‘H’s’ on a grid designed of letters with “H’s” intermingled in the group. Every missed ‘H’ adds 3 seconds to your score.

And finally, sex. Sex is a symphony of hormones that is helped by regular exercise and sleep.
