  • Is Reversing Aging Degenerate?

    Is Reversing Aging Degenerate? By Dr. Richard Lippman Since the serialization of Oscar Wilde’s novel “The Picture of Dorian Gray” in the 1890s, the idea of staying forever young while an oil painting grew older was condemned as degenerate. Indeed, several years later Wilde was imprisoned for his alleged degeneracies.

  • Avoiding A Hospital Bed

    Avoiding A Hospital Bed My biochemist friend and patient, Bob, phoned me recently. In an urgent voice, he requested an immediate appointment. I was a bit surprised because several times previously he wanted to use only his traditional physician, who was covered by his medical insurance. I made the appointment for the following afternoon, wondering why Bob suddenly wanted my help. The next day, Bob arrived in my office, flustered and haggard from lack of sleep. He explained t...
  • The Nuts and Bolts of Aging Part One

    The Nuts and Bolts of Aging: Part One (Aging is caused by random molecular damages exceeding repairs) The belief that aging is an unsolved problem no longer holds true.

Indeed, Nobel Prize winner and co-discoverer of DNA, Dr. James Watson, has stated in an email to me that only 5 percent of the diseases of aging are caused by malfunctioning genes (endnote one). Instead, aging is a ...

  • Health care bogged down by ‘old think’

    Health care bogged down by ‘old think’ Practical mindedness avoids ‘Old Think’ For the last three hundred years, Americans have been admired for their practical mindedness. For example, in the middle of the eighteenth century, Benjamin Franklin established an efficient postal and public library system that allowed rapid dissemination of news and information throughout the colonies. Other countries had no such systems and no interest in a more literat...
  • Insomnia cured at last

    Insomnia cured at last Lack of sleep causes weight gain¹ and a host of other health problems² and until 2011, the medical community has only addressed its symptoms with prescription drugs loaded with side effects.

Why Treat Symptoms Of Insomnia? Why Not Solve Its Underlying Causes? Other ...
