Press Release from Forever Healthy

Forever Healthy is a German organization that has been supporting an annual aging conference in Berlin that I attend.  They are focused on expanding human health in old age.  Recently they sent me this press release and I found it so interesting I thought I would share it with you:

Forever Healthy launches Rejuvenation Therapies Evaluation Program with an in-depth analysis of NAD+ Restoration

Berlin, September 3, 2019

The Forever Healthy Foundation today announced the public launch of it’s “Rejuvenation Now” initiative and the publication of the first results of the project.

Senolytics, NAD+, Lipid Replacement, Decalcification, mTOR Inhibitors, Geroprotectors, … – the first generation of human rejuvenation therapies is available today. However, the field is still very young and the information often spotty. New therapies are emerging, and existing ones are updated or replaced. A real challenge for those who want to take advantage of this exciting development as soon as possible.

To overcome this, Forever Healthy’s “Rejuvenation Now” initiative seeks to continuously identify rejuvenation therapies that are available right now and systematically evaluates them on their risks, benefits, procedures and potential application in order to create transparency regarding the current state of said therapies.

The first publication released by the initiative is a “Risk & Benefit Analysis of NAD+ Restoration Therapy”, a systematic review of the published evidence. The team at Forever Healthy screened over 2000 publications resulting in the inclusion of more than 150 preclinical and 40 clinical trials on the use of oral NAD precursors, transdermal patches or infusions to raise NAD+ to youthful levels.

NAD+ Restoration Therapy: A Risk-Benefit Analysis

A second publication covering the intermittent use of high dose fisetin as a senolytic agent is already completed and under review by selected members of the rejuvenation community on the foundations RFC portal. It is expected to be released to the general public in the next weeks.

Future upcoming work of the initiative will amongst others cover topics such as the use of essential phospholipids to rejuvenate cell membranes and improve their condition, the use of low-level light therapy to rejuvenate the skin, and the use of EDTA to decalcify both arteries as well as the capillary system.

Rapamycin Doctor

While the cruise ship was in New York, I took the time to visit Dr. Green and get a prescription for rapamycin. While there I discussed with him other aging ‘cures’, which I outline in this blog.

As the cruise ship sailed from Iceland to Canada I started working on a blog about rapamycin. When I came across Dr. Alan Green’s website I got badly sidetracked, for Dr. Green has recently specialized in being a doctor of rapamycin. Partly because of the benefits he got from taking it himself. He is located in New York city and when I realized that I contacted him about an appointment for the day we docked there. With the short notice (5 days), and especially the fact it was a Sunday, I had my doubts it would work. My pessimism was misplaced, for he was kind enough to agree to meet with me at 2 pm.

Mostly I wanted to visit Dr. Green to see what he thought about rapamycin and to see what was required to get a prescription for it. Continue reading “Rapamycin Doctor”
