Dr. Michael Perlmann. What is anti-aging medicine?
Anti-aging medicine blends traditional principles with the latest advances in medical research to treat and prevent the causes of aging. Traditional medicine treats the symptoms and sequelae or effects of aging, whereas anti-aging medicine strives to prevent or reverse the causes and signs of aging. The hallmark of anti-aging therapy is prevention, with a focus on the identification of risk factors of disease, lifestyle improvements, and hormone replacement therapy (HRT) such as HGH, HCG, Progesterone/Estrogen and Testosterone therapy.
Doctor Edmund Chein from 1994 to 1996 treated over 800 people with HGH replacement therapy. And the results were published in Doctor Ronald Klatz's 1997 book "Grow Young With HGH". These results demonstrated to scientists and the public, the safety and efficacy of HGH, Human Growth Hormone in improving a broad array of human health parameters in adults
Doctors Thierry Hertaghe and Vince Giampapa report that the latest European research indicates that Human Growth Hormone (HGH) can go beyond the current antioxidant based anti-aging remedies in slowing, preventing and reversing aging at the cellular level.
Grace Wong of Genetech has shown that as we age cell proteins suffer ever accumulating damage. This is, in large part, caused by the ever-increasing incidence of free radicals released during normal cellular activity. Wong says that HGH - the human growth hormone can actually activate a cellular defense force of protease inhibitors. So even if high levels of free radicals can't be avoided, the protease inhibitors can prevent the free radicals from triggering cell destructive protease. Thus, unlike antioxidants, HGH does not just reduce cellular damage, it can actively promote the healing and regeneration of cells!
After six months of HGH treatment at Sahlgrenska Hospital in Sweden HGH deficient adults lost 20% of their body fat. Most of this fat loss occurred in abdominal fat, reduced by 30% compared with a 13% reduction in peripheral fat. (e.g. arm and leg) It is abdominal fat that is strongly correlated with increased incidence of heart attack., hypertension and diabetes.
Thomas C. Welbourne of Louisiana State University College of Medicine in Shreveport, conducted a study that showed that a surprisingly small dose of Glutamine (Major component of our "AgeForce™" formula) raised HGH levels more than four times the amount of patients on a placebo. Even more exciting, age did not diminish the responses that inreased human growth hormone.
Vladimir Dilman, PH.D. "Hormones are vital for repairing and regulating our bodily functions. As we age, though the body produces lower levels of hormones, which can result in disastrous effects, including the decline of self-repair and self-regulation. Hormone replacement therapy, a frequent component of any anti-aging treatment, helps to reset the body's hormonal clock and thus can reverse of delay the effects of aging. If our hormones are being produced at youthful levels, in a very real sense the cells of our bodies are stimulated to be metabolically active and thus, the entire body stays young."
Silvio Inzucchi of Yale University wrote in the January 15, 1997 issue of Hospital Practice, "Growth hormone deficiency is not formally recognized as a specific clinical syndrome, typified by decreased muscle mass, increased body fat predominantly at intra-abdominal sites"...
Dr. Robert Kerr (San Gabriel, California, treated over 8,000 athletes in the course of his practice, prescribing growth hormone or HGH. Kerr said his patients took HGH for only three to six weeks. In that time, bodybuilders claimed their results lasted up to 12 months. Some athletes claimed to have gained up to 40 pounds in six weeks while reducing their body fat.
Dr. Julian Whitaker of Newport Beach, California has been prescribing HGH to his elderly patients, as well as taking it himself. He states, "I have not seen anything that even comes close to the restorative power of HGH supplementation". In Whitaker's opinion, HGH (Human Growth Hormone) is most effective in combating the effects of chronic diseases that involve muscle wasting: stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and AIDS,
1996 New England Journal of Medicine - Patients treated with HGH who had moderate-to-severe heart failure, increased the thickness of the left ventricular wall, enhanced the ability of the heart to contract and pump out blood, reduced the oxygen requirement of the heart, improved exercise capacity, clinical systems, and the patients quality of life.
David Clemmons, chief of Endocrinology at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine in Chapel Hill, believes that HGH is a promising treatment for emphysema and other chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases.
Dr. Ronald Klatz, Author "Grow Young with HGH" "GH (Growth Hormone) is the ultimate anti aging therapy. It effects almost every cell in the body, rejuvenating the skin and bones, regenerating the heart, liver, lungs, and kidneys, bringing organ and tissue function back to youthful levels.
"It is an anti-disease medicine that revitalizes the immune system, lowers the risk factors for heart attack and stroke, improves oxygen uptake in emphysema patients, and prevents osteoporosis. It is under investigation for a host of different diseases from post-polio syndrome to AIDS. It is the most effective anti-obesity drug ever discovered, reviving up the metabolism to youthful levels, resculpting the body by selectively reducing the fat in the waist, abdomen, hips, and thighs, and at the same time increasing muscle mass. It may be the most powerful aphrodisiac ever discovered, reviving flagging sexual and potency in older men."
"It is cosmetic surgery in a bottle, smoothing out facial wrinkles; restoring the elasticity, thickness, and contours of youthful skin; reversing the loss of extracellular water that makes old people look like dried-up prunes. It has healing powers that close ulcerated wounds and regrow burned skin. It is the secret ingredient in the age-defying bodies of weight lifters and it enhances exercise performance, allowing you to do higher-intensity workouts of longer duration. It reverses the insomnia of later life, restoring the "slow wave" or deepest level of sleep. HGH is a mood elevator, lifting the spirits along with the body, bringing back a zest for life many people thought was lost forever. The latest research shows that it holds promise for that most intractable and terrifying disease of aging - Alzheimer's."
Patrick Cadigan, M.D., Medical College of Florida. "Today a greater sense of well-being and self confidence is closer than you think."
Daniel Rudman, M.D., Medical College of Wisconsin. "The effects of six months of growth hormone on lean body mass and adipose-tissue mass were equivalent in magnitude to the changes incurred during 10 to 20 years of aging."
Dr. Eve Van Cauter, GH researcher, University of Chicago Medical Center. "All of these ideas about treating people with growth hormone have been directed towards people sixty-five and older. If you look at the data, people have so-called 'elderly' levels by age forty. Perhaps we should be giving GH replacement therapy earlier rather than attempting to treat tissues that have seen little or no growth hormone for decades."
Dr. Lawrence Dornan, member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging "It stops the aging process in the body and reverses many of the problems that are caused by aging, such as wrinkling skin, increased body fat, decreased muscle mass, increased cholesterol, decreased stamina and energy, decreased mental function, impaired neurological functions such as Parkinson's and Multiple Sclerosis. IGF-1 or growth hormone is truly an amazing substance which is both safe and effective with no known side effects unless it's used in an overdose manner."
Dr. George Merriam, University of Washington in Seattle-National Institute of Aging studies on growth hormone " There is no evidence suggesting that this [growth hormone] replacement therapy causes any unfavorable long term side effects... a complete absence of side effects."
Dr. Jorgensen and Dr. Christian of Copenhagen, Denmark, in European Journal of Endocrinology, 1994 "Replacement therapy with Growth Hormone has shown beneficial and normalizing effect on parameters such as cardiac and renal function, thyroid hormone metabolism, bone metabolism, sweat secretion, total and regional fuel metabolism and psychological well being"
Dr. Ronald Klatz, world renowned expert on anti-aging, founder and president of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. "By replenishing your supply of growth hormone, you can recover your vigor, health, looks and sexuality. For the first time in human history, we can intervene in the aging process, restore many aspects of youth, resist disease, substantially improve the quality of life, perhaps extend the life span itself. The 'Fountain of Youth' lies within the cells of each of us. All you need to do is release it."
