Power-point talk and Workshop on the Hot New health topics of 2019
Fasting (which includes detoxification), the Microbiota, the “right” diet, circadian rhythms and mindful meditation
This power-point workshop reviews five of the latest breakthrough rejuvenation technologies that are redefining medicine in general and oncology in particular, all of which are safe, efficient, cost-friendly and robustly evidence-based. And that can be activated directly by the patient, thereby empowering the “healer” within.
The first breakthrough regards therapeutic fasting and it’s impact on detoxification, well-being, immunology, autophagy, stem cell regeneration and longevity. (1)
The second breakthrough deals with the impact of the microbiota and its DNA-structured microbiome on quality life extension, immunity, neurological-plasticity and cancer reversals. (2)
The third breakthrough this workshop deals with is based on the latest scientific findings that showwhich is the best human nutrition for the epigenetic expression of longevity, cancer control & reversal, immunity, aging pathways (3) and happiness (the feel good hormones & neurotransmitters).
The fourth breakthrough is about circadian rhythms. The 2017 Nobel Prize of Medicine went to a Japanese scientist who unveiled the importance (for human biology and optimal health) of different circadian mechanisms that govern key biochemical pathways.
The last breakthrough is about mindful meditation and Telomere Lengthening. Strong science has been shown to meaningfully upregulate (promote) longevity genes, telomerases and telomere length.
Fasting, Water & Detoxification
Fasting has been around for millennia and many spiritual practices have incorporating this bio-hack and holistic technique within their teachings. In this perspective, we will review the basics of fastingas an autophagy-promoting holisic healing technique and examine different forms of fasting, from religious, naturopathic, alternate, 5-7, one meal and intermittent and partial fasts to Mosseri and Longo’s fasting techniques as well as full hydric fasts (long and short) and the dry fast. Each of these fasts strengths and weaknesses will be reviewed.
Because fasting triggers strong biological processes that are connected with hydrogen and oxygen, we will review different types of drinking waterand their effect on health and longevity. These including spring water, well water, ocean water, (Quinton) rain water, alkaline & structured water, double helix water, Kancun water and deuterium depleted water. Furthermore, any fasting regimen needs to cover detoxification. Not only because fasting activates the body’s own detoxification pathways, but also because water fasting can be risky in terms of displacing dislodged toxins without full excretion.
Microbiota, Mitochondria & Stress
According to the best geneticists and biologists, for the last 1.5 billion years, mammalian gut microbes have both accompanied and guided eukaryotic evolution, thanks to which we have today a human body that has been evolutionarily designed to be healthy and resilient to at least 120 years old, provided humans live in accordance to Nature’s laws. More recently, thanks to the human genome project technology on the microbiota, scientists have discovered thousands of key bacterial species and their cousins (viruses, fungi and archaea) in the gut, the totality of which are equipped with around 8 million genes that cross talk with the 23,000 human eukaryotic genes that Nature has included within primate DNA. The discoveries that have resulted from the sequencing of the Microbiome’s genome is in part redefining medicine and empowering modern consumers with holistic and actionable ways to increase their vitality and longevity.
In this perspective, we will review the basics of the Microbiota, its connection to Mitochondria and follow up with hackable and holistic techniquesto nurture it so that its trillions of bugs (bacteria, virus, fungi, archaea etc) will be balanced, diversified and happy. A few Mitochondria repair and energy enhancement techniques will also be reviewed. These techniques include ways to make fermented and pickeled foods, the best manners to eat so that the microbiota prospers (prebiotics, probiotics, polyphenols and more), different techniques to de-stress(ie, chronic stress freaks out the microbiota, to the point of promoting intestinal permeability) and restore homeostasis, via meditation, sleep, exercise, hydrotherapy, herbology, acu-pressure, breathing and more.
Diet, Sunshine & Wine
In Conventional Medicine, there is a big elephant in the room. From all of the dozens and dozens of allopathic treatment plans, one of the most relevant ones, nutrition, is sidestepped. Even today, most American medical schools will only bestow upon their students less then 10 hours of human nutrition knowledge. (4) Yet, without the right personalized nutrition plan, it is nearly impossible to reverse chronic diseases or accelerated aging.
In this perspective, this workshop will review the strengths and weaknesses of some of the most fashionable and serious nutrition regimes, from the classical Mediterranean diet, to the vegan diet, raw-food diet, vegetarian diet, paleo diet, standard American diet, Atkins diet, keto diets, (both omnivore and vegan keto) and, among others, the FOD-map and GAPs diets. Because the ingestion of food by itself does not optimize nutritional assimilation, we will also examine the synergistic-based “entourage effect” via different modalities, including, but not limited to quality wine, helio-therapy (sun-shine), stomach acid, bile and enzyme production techniques and parasympathetic activation.
After reviewing the fundamentals of the biology of circadian rhythms, we will delve into different holistique techniques that can optimize the performance of the body’s internal “clocks”.
Millennia-old, meditation is one of the most powerful rejuvenation therapies. But not any kind of meditation. In this section, we will review different forms of meditation, look at the published science that supports these techniques as longevity tools and lastly, we will teach how to practice a rejuvenating holistic mindful meditation.
How this Five-pronged Holistic Approach can successfuly address different chronic diseases and delay the Aging Process
Auto-immune and Cancer Diseases
New researchhas shown that one of the major drivers of chronic diseases, senescence and accelerated aging is a dysfunctional immune system. Because a rejuvenated immune system can also help to remove senescent cells, (5) the Institute’s Fasting-Microbiota-Diet immunotherapy approach is one of the best insofar as the controling and reversing of different forms of diseases that are connected either to an over-reactive immune system or an under-active one, from thyroid diseases, to degenerative joint disease, multiple sclerosis and more. Case studies will be reviewed.
Regarding cancer, since this year’s Nobel in Physiology (Medicine) went to scientists who have bio-chemically elucidated part of the immune system’s modus operandi with regard to cancer, we will also compare holistic immunotherapy with genetic engineering immunotherapy,in particular with regard to CAR-T cell therapy (CAR = “chimeric antigen receptors”) and a few other conventional immune modulation techniques.
Metabolic Syndrome (Diabetes, obesity and high blood pressure) and Hormonal disorders
With regard to the metabolic syndrome and hormonal disorders, we will review how fasting, gut medicine and nutrition can help to better control and reverse these diseases. Successful Cases studies will examined.
Mental diseases and Cardiovascular Events
A few Brain and vascular disorders will also be seen through the prism of fasting, the microbiota and nutrition. Successful Cases studies will be studied, including one of the toughest diseases to reverse, Alzheimer’s disease.
In this section, we will show how Fasting, Microbiota medicine and diet can favorably impact longevity pathways, from general metabolism, deep sleep, muscle tone, weight management, cellular detoxification, autophagy, stem cell renewal, DNA repair mechanisms, Circadian harmonization, BDNF enhancement, mitochondrial biogenesis to the holistic modulating of different bioelectric, biochemical and hormonal processes, including, but not limited to mTOR, IGF-1, AMPK, NFR2, senescence, nutrient sensing, energy activation, the immune system and inflammation.
Each workshopee will receive a detailed outline of the workshop with a few documents. Each session will be open for question and answers.
Learning Objectives and take-aways
