Dr Oz: How To Slow Down the Aging Process
Today’s Dr. Oz show is the culmination of his most ambitious experiment yet and it involves three brave women and The New Science to Reverse Aging. Is it possible to turn back the clock and look younger from the inside out, with just a few simple lifestyle changes? It is time to find out right now!
Dr Oz: What Are Telomeres?
Dr. Dean Ornish told Dr. Oz it is not only possible to slow the aging process, but also reverse it and there is research to support this fact. Dr. Ornish says his early research showed doctors can slow or stop the progression of several conditions, including heart disease, prostate cancer in men and Type 2 Diabetes.
The most exciting finding, according to Dr. Ornish, is that there is now a way to extend the length of a person’s telomeres, which are basically caps on the ends of our chromosomes. The study showed that life challenges and stress can cause the telomeres to shorten, so in turn positive lifestyle changes can actually lengthen those telomeres and essentially add years to your life.
Dr. Oz added this is why everyone looks so different at high school reunions. He says life factors cause us all to age at different paces, but now there is a way we can all add more years to our lives.
Dr Oz: Anti-Aging Program Results
Dr. Dean Ornish created a program that focuses on four basic factors to help you improve your health and add years to your life. Those are:
Dr. Ornish worked with three women to see if they could look younger and improve their overall health after following his plan for a few months.
Jeri – Telomere length increased by 6%, Cholesterol dropped by 41 points, Triglycerides went down by 13 points. Dr. Oz says she literally got younger.
Liliana – Telomere length increased by 11%, C-Reactive Protein decreased by 76%, lost 15 pounds.
Kathey – Telomere length increased by 15%, Lowered blood sugar by 148 points and stopped all insulin injections, lowered blood pressure from 138/92 to 118/86.
Dr. Oz is astounded by the results in these women because our bodies are supposed to age, rather than get younger as is the case because of the increase in their telomere length. He says it is absolutely possible by simple making a few lifestyle changes.
