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”
I am in my 60s and have been using aging research to slow my aging. This blog is about the science behind what I and others are doing to live a healthier lifestyle and hopefully live until science defeats aging.
I am already doing a number of things to (hopefully) slow my aging. I am in my 60’s and over the last decade I have had a few age-related health problems. I have successfully fought off these problems, such as my rheumatoid arthritis; a herniated disk in my neck, cured without surgery; my occasional brain fog is gone; a tremor in my hand is mostly gone; vision problems where I mostly reversed growing farsightedness from my eye lenses getting stiffer and failing to focus on things I read. As I get older, I expect that conquering these issues will become increasingly difficult and the biohacking techniques I have been using will start to fail me. So far my health remains excellent, and with the many treatments coming for slowing the onset of aging diseases I am hoping to extend my health into late old age–and perhaps until aging can be reversed.
