Futurehealth WinterBrain Panel Plenary presentation by Beverly Rubik Long before chronic degenerative disease sets in, the typical aging adult slowly slips down the slope from optimal wellness into "functional" disorders. These typically include one or more of the following: fatigue, pain, disturbed sleep, immune dysfunction, sexual dysfunction, digestive disturbances, food intolerances, multiple allergies, etc. Functional disorders are often dismissed as "aging", but we offer another perspective. We will reconsider these in light of ancient and state-of-the-art anti-aging and longevity practices and how functional disorders can be reversed with improved diet and nutritional supplements, photostimulation, appropriate exercise, ancient Oriental health practices, and more.
  • nutritional supplements
  • oriental health practices
  • photo stimulation

For example, use of moxibustion, the burning of an herb at key points on the legs and feet is an ancient Oriental practice used to restore energy and essence, and modern scientific evidence shows an interesting correlation with greater telomere length in the DNA, associated with anti-aging. Photostimulation through the eyes can be used to modulate the autonomic nervous system and promote sleep, relaxation, or attentiveness, in the case of ADD, among other beneficial functional effects. Exercise that is aerobic to promote a healthy heart and lungs, or anerobic to promote strong muscles, is not the bottom line----there are also flexibility exercises as well as parasympathetic exercises that work on the mind-body, such as qigong.

Homeopathic human growth hormones and other hormones give the body key information to fight aging, without the liver problems and other uncertainties associated with larger hormone doses.
