Biologically degenerative process that is a deterioration and loss of function over time and leads to death
Most of us swear we are going to start drinking more water, but do we really? As we age, our bodies are more vulnerable to dehydration and it often goes unnoticed in older individuals due to a diminished sense of thirst. Proper hydration for healthy aging and function is essential. Yet most of us are dehydrated. Host Lauren Dimet Waters talks with Dr. Kelly Halderman, Chief Health Officer Of WEO which is a conscientious health tech company that's revolutionizing the way the world drinks water about: the role hydration plays in aging; the damaging effects dehydration has on the body; how your hydration needs change as you age; how much water you should be drinking in midlife; how to tell if you are dehydrated and how you can detect dehydration in older individuals like your parents.

In this Aging GreatFULLy power-hour we invite you to bask in the Fountain of YOU-th! That's right, come gather around for this conversation all about YOU, destressing, healthy, AGEless living and self-care strategies for your mind, body and soul with returning guest, one of the world's most noted beauty and wellness experts to the supermodels and superstars, Gregory Landsman. Gregory is a best-selling author of nine-books and the TV Host of Face Lifting Food – a show about how to use food to lower stress and maintain healthy, younger looking skin, shown in universities, wellness centers and in more than 70 countries worldwide. Join us for a conversation beyond beauty, as Gregory speaks to the essence of seeing one another with our heart. As he says, it's beyond the skin and not “hard work, but heart work”. The conversation flows effortlessly as only it can with Gregory Landsman because he is passionate about his work and believes that “How you age is in your hands.” You will LOVE his acronym for BEAUTY! We talk about the external messages we're receiving about growing older from the greater world from a variety of sources and how we may be internalizing them, including how they may be wearing us down. But we also discuss what we should “say back” to these messages once we acknowledge them. Gregory believes that Mother Nature has provided what we need to provide self-care and natural remedies for skin care. And his books highlight his processes beautifully as he shares how to reduce stress and skin stress naturally (one of the greatest causes of premature skin aging) to naturally age less while embracing every beautiful stAGE along life's way. But we also talk about the Fountain of YOU-th, in that Fountains spring forth life and vitality. Every fountain is beautiful and YOUnique. And we believe this to be true about every Aging Rebel. And the Fountain of Youth itself represented the great quest for youth. And as such, we love that Aging Rebels are dedicated to seizing and bubbling up their own child-like wonder in their curious and ongoing zest for life! And much like a fountain, Aging Rebels possess an enthusiastic approach to living, inspiring others through being great Role Models. Much like a fountain offers abundance, we also speak to the many special and important gifts and wisdom every listener has within them to share with the world around them at every stAGE! We focus on Gregory Landsman's best-selling trilogy, Face Fitness, Face Food and Face Value, a dynamic work he has created that provides readers with a solution to transform the health of their skin naturally as we take a deep dive into the challenges many encounter with their internal thoughts, perceptions and even fears about growing older – even from a very young age. As a sought-after expert who has worked in the beauty and fashion industry for over 30 years, Gregory has developed his own GL De-stress and AGE Less method. Based on ancient modalities that have been used for thousands of years, his techniques are proven, endorsed and science based. They have been used by the global beauty industry for years to teach models how to de-stress their bodies and skin. But Gregory believes everyone should have affordable access to this type of self-care. It's a special conversation about one of my favorite topics – YOU, Aging Rebels! You won't want to miss it!

Welcome to this episode of The Tonic, terrestrially broadcast on September 24 and 25, 2022 on AM740 and FM 96.7 in Toronto.

It's likely that when we hear the expression living our best selves we think of it in terms of our physical, mental and even spiritual well-being. According to Lauren Solomon it has a broader meaning. Lauren essentially took everything her mother taught her about clothing and design and made it a life's work. But she's also taken it to another level. She helps people understand that is not only about your image but it has a lot to do with how you feel about yourself and the response you receive from others. Self-confidence is certainly an important part of well-being. But this episode's story about well-being extends beyond Lauren's profession. Her story of how and where she worked took a turn in 2020, as it did for many of us.. Lauren has a family and older parents who needed her during the pandemic. Fortunately, the nature of her business allowed her to pick up and move across the country when her family needed her most. It was during this time that her mother's medical condition became a serious concern. Several specialists later, a condition she lived with for many years finally received the attention it needed. But it also meant her mother had to change basic habits: what she ate and how she ate. Habits are difficult to change, a habit as basic of how we eat takes painstaking work and the help of others. The remarkable story of where Lauren's mother is now, as compared to where she was prior to discovering and understanding her condition, and making the needed changes, is a prime example of what's possible with the commitment to do the work in order to sustain Healthy Aging at any age.
Dr. Bernstein is board certified in Internal Medicine and Geriatrics practicing in Florida. He's authored several books and uses The Power of Five to advise his patients to stay healthy during the aging process. With the recent research on how Long Covid greatly increases the risk for neurodegenerative diseases, all generations can apply his principles to stay healthy and guard against the inflammatory issues that affect aging.
We think of aging as a normal consequence of getting older, but looked at a different way, aging can be seen as a disease — driven by upstream factors such as what we eat and think, the quality of our relationships and microbiome, exposure to toxins and allergens, and so on. The takeaway that Dr. Mark Hyman and Jeff discuss today: You don't have to age the way you see so prevalent in modern society. As new research emerges, the field of human longevity is entering an exciting phase of development.

We all know someone who talks about manifesting love abundance and joy in their life – or maybe you are that person. But what does that really mean? And how would we even start to manifest these things in our life? Our guest today says that your thoughts and feelings are like magnets and that what you feel on the inside is what you attract from the outside. In other words, what you focus on is what you attract. I think it's safe to say that deep down we all want to attract the same things – we want to have an abundant life. We all want to feel happy and joyful and in love with life. Why is it then that so many of us feel like we don't have joy, love, and abundance in our lives? What would our lives look like – how would we be different – if we learned to manifest the things we truly desired? My guest today is Sarah Vie. Sarah is an internationally sought out energy healer, meditation guide, and spiritual mentor, helping women and men break the cycle of their ancestral traumas so that they can live abundant, joyful, and peaceful lives. She is an award-winning author of the children's book, Let Your Inner Golden Sparkle Shine, as well as I Wish I Had Known which is her memoir of her personal healing journey. Join us today as Sarah helps us break the cycles of our past, and to heal and harness our energy to reimagine and manifest lives filled with love, joy, and abundance.

Today we have another edition of the Coaches Corner – so no guest today – it's just me, and we'll be back next week with our regular interview format. Today I want to talk about rapid fat loss. Specifically, what's involved with losing weight in a manner that's sustainable for the rest of your life. It seems to me that we don't so much have a problem losing weight – we have a problem maintaining our hard-won weight loss. And really what we need is a diet exit strategy. If you've struggled with maintaining weight loss, you'll definitely want to give this episode a listen!

So you think you know how a lack of deep sleep affects you? Unless you follow someone like https://www.sleepdiplomat.com (Matt Walker), the preeminent neuroscientist specializing in sleep, or one of his colleagues around the world, you may miss out on information that will encourage you to make sleep a priority. And increase the likelihood of aging in good health. It's no secret that as we age, regular, sound, sleep seems to elude us unless everything is Goldilocks perfect. Not too hot, not too cold, not too much on our minds, the creaky back isn't complaining, and on and on. But, as you'll find out in this episode, it's possible to improve your sleep, though it's not likely to happen overnight. (Couldn't help myself) Why dedicate a shortie to sleep when the internet is full of blog posts and articles on the subject? Because the negative impact of under-sleeping, as researchers call it, is in short supply. But it's information that can make a difference in how you age, so here we go. Let's start with one of Matt's many thoughts on sleep. “Sleep is the greatest life support system you could ever wish for. It's a remarkable health insurance policy. It is largely democratic. It's free and it's largely painless." The greatest life support system... He doesn't say it's a good idea, that it's one of the ways we stay healthy, he says it's the greatest, and goes on to say it is the foundation upon which all other good health habits rest. We now know that lifestyle accounts for 70% to 80% of our health and risk of disease. Sleep de-risks us more powerfully than what we eat or how we move. (Those things are mighty important, but sleep trumps their effects.) And, without proper, deep sleep most nights of the week, it will be harder to lose weight, control cravings, have the energy to move, and stay sharp throughout the day. To get specific about the weight loss thing, when you under-sleep, 6 hours or less per night, are not as efficient the next day when exercising. When dieting or calorie restricting and under-sleeping, you lose muscle rather than burn fat. Cortisol plays a role with insulin close behind. And those two hormones in this instance, are related to stress. Managing stress during the day and or de-stressing before you go to sleep will make a big difference. Sleep hygiene--creating a routine that you follow every night leading up to sleep-- is an important tool in your better sleep toolbox. It includes things like checking your bedroom for light, temperature, comfort, and noise. (I go into all of them in the podcast) What about sleeping pills like Lunesta and Ambien? Nix them. You have a https://www.webmd.com/sleep-disorders/news/20120227/sleeping-pills-called-as-risky-as-cigarettes (higher risk of death,) https://www.alzinfo.org/articles/caregiving/sleeping-pills-may-increase-your-dementia-risk/ (higher risk of dementia )if you use them regularly. According to Dr. Walker, "Ambien isn't like sleep. You're confusing sleep with a lack of consciousness. These drugs are termed sedative hypnotics. "so like hitting you over the head and you're unconscious, it does not give restorative sleep." Matt says.These drugs can also be addictive. But what if you suffer from insomnia? Get help from a professional if the sleep hygiene tips and herbal supplements like https://www.mayoclinic.org/drugs-supplements-melatonin/art-20363071 (melatonin) don't work. There are different kinds of insomnia and each has particular types of therapy to resolve. https://sleepeducation.org/patients/cognitive-behavioral-therapy/ (Here's the best place to start to find a professional specializing in insomnia therapy. ) That link will take you to a site that describes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia, in detail.

If you're like us, you have been frustrated with the lack of adequate perimenopause and menopause care provided (or NOT provided) by your current medical team. Enter Elektra Health, a digital health company with a mission to smash the menopause taboo by empowering women with evidence-based education, care & community. We were lucky to speak with Laura Stratte, their Program & Operations Manager, and Jacqueline Giannelli, one of their founding Nurse Practitioners who has been treating Julia's symptoms with much success. These ladies are all about education and empowerment, offering women honest risk-assessments and treatment options, and letting them lead the charge in their own menopausal healthcare journey. All of this may sound very medical and therefore serious in tone, but don't let that fool you. As always, there was plenty of laughter as we talked about the audacity of women daring to have a libido, the need for a webcam speculum in women's telehealth, and avocado tools.

OK folks, we have another classic rewind episode for you this week. Dr. Gabrielle Lyon's episode originally aired back in August of 2021 and has consistently been one of the top 3 most popular episodes ever since! In fact at the time of this posting her episode is sitting in the number one all time spot. I chose this particular episode for this week's replay because Dr. Lyon's message is so important for those of us over the age of 50. So for all you OG listeners who have been around for a while and perhaps -listened to this episode when it originally aired, I'd strongly recommend giving this episode a second listen!And for you newer listeners, you're in for a treat! I'll be back next week with a new episode, but for now here's Dr. Gabrielle Lyon!Here in the United States, more than two-thirds of all adults are overweight or obese. And despite increasing awareness of the health risks associated with weight gain, the obesity epidemic continues to grow. In the US alone, an estimated 45 million people go on a diet each year, and we spend an average of $33 billion annually on weight loss products. Estimates of the cost of treating adult obesity here in the US range from 147 to 210 billion dollars each year. And this epidemic isn't just affecting adults, approximately 20% of children and teenagers are now classified as obese, and that percentage is climbing. And we know that obesity increases our risk for other diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and certain types of cancers. So why, with all of our medical advancements and scientific understanding, are we not able to stop – or even slow – the prevalence of obesity? What if obesity itself isn't the actual problem in and of itself, but rather the symptom of a much greater problem? What if the problem isn't so much that we're over fat, but that we're under muscled? What if we change our focus from obesity to skeletal muscle health – that is to muscle-centric medicine? My guest today is Dr. Gabrielle Lyon. Dr. Lyon helps motivate people of any age to reach their ideal weight and fullest health potential with the principles of muscle-centric medicine. She received her doctorate in osteopathic medicine and did her fellowship in geriatrics where she studied obesity medicine and nutritional science. Dr. Lyon has been published in Muscle & Fitness, Men's Health, Women's Health, and Harper's Bazar just to mention a few. In today's show Dr. Lyon breaks down the critical role of nutrition and why muscle is the organ of longevity. In this episode she tells exactly how much protein aging people need, as well as the best sources of protein for us athletes of aging. And the answer may surprise you. This was a fantastic episode, and I personally took a ton of information away from this conversation. You can connect with Dr Lyon in the following ways:Instagram - @drgabrielelyonWebsiteYouTube

The concept of wisdom may be younger than you think, dating only back to the 1970s. Join hosts Dr. Bob Boland and Dr. Kerry Horrell on this episode of Mind Dive podcast as they speak with Dr. Dilip Jeste. Dive into this conversation with one of the most prolific researchers on the topic as the great questions of wisdom are explored, including “Can you measure it?” and “Do we become wiser with age?” Dr. Jeste previously served as the Senior Associate Dean for Healthy Aging and Senior Care, Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry and Neurosciences, Estelle and Edgar Levi Memorial Chair in Aging, Director of the Sam and Rose Stein Institute for Research on Aging, and Co-Director of the UC San Diego Center on Artificial Intelligence for Healthy Living. He is a geriatric neuropsychiatrist specializing in successful psychosocial aging and the neurobiology of wisdom. “We teach the facets of reading, writing and arithmetic, but not how someone can fully understand another's emotions through empathy, compassion, self-compassion, self-reflection and emotional regulation,” said Dr. Jeste. “These factors make us happy and contented—the most important thing in our lives. If we make it a habit to work on this, I do believe in society's capacity to change for the better.” Follow The Menninger Clinic on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn to never miss an episode of Mind Dive.Visit www.menningerclinic.org to learn more about The Menninger Clinic's research and leadership roles in mental health.Listen to Episode 13: The Psychiatry of Youth Gang Violence with Dr. Christopher Thomas Resources mentioned in this episode: “Wiser: The Scientific Roots of Wisdom, Compassion, and What Makes Us Good”
In this episode we talk to Jeff Williamson, MD, MHS, Director of the Center for Healthcare innovation, about what is on the horizon for patient care and how it impacts value. https://school.wakehealth.edu/faculty/w/jeff-d-williamson (About Jeff Williamson) https://school.wakehealth.edu/research/institutes-and-centers/center-for-healthcare-innovation (About Center for Healthcare Innovation) Transcript: Can you talk to me about Center for Healthcare Innovation and the Center for Aging? What is the mission of each? Yep. Well, the Center for Healthcare Innovation was really founded, uh, on the concept that we needed a vehicle for more rapid communication and translation of our discovery into the patient's environment. Whether that's wellness or actually the delivery of care, for example, in the hospital. So, Wake Forest is known around the world for its research. It's a research institution. But many of the things we discover are implemented 20 years after the discovery or they're implemented in some health system halfway across the nation. So, that was really the purpose for the Center for Healthcare Innovations. We've had for many years a sister center, so to speak, Wake Forest Innovations, which is about commercializing discovery. You know, a new kind of hip replacement or a new enzyme. But our Center is specifically tasked with taking a lot of that discovery that's not commercial allowable but has tremendous value to patients, their families, and to the health care system. And getting that more rapidly to the front lines. You also asked me about geriatric medicine. Wake Forest really has a clinical entity, it's called the Section on Geriatric Medicine and Gerontology, which I'm head of. Then there's a Center for Healthy Aging and Alzheimer's Prevention. I'm a clinical leader of that. The Center is actually led by doctors Stephen Kritchevsky and Suzanne Craft. They're research faculty. But our mission of all of that together is to find more ways to help prevent disability with aging. So, when I mean disability, a simple way to put it is how can we prevent the two most common reasons that someone moves from their home and into an assisted living or nursing home facility. And either they have difficulty walking or difficulty remembering. So, our main thrust of our research is understanding how to delay or prevent loss of particularly leg strength and walking and loss of brain health. The most common form of which is Alzheimer's disease. That's really the purpose of Geriatrics in the Center for Health Care Innovation. And even all of our clinical care, uh, when I take care of patients, I'm thinking of them holistically. How can I help you preserve your ability to walk and think? Even if you have 10 diseases at 90, the successful patient to me might have 10 diseases, but they're still interacting with their family, they're remembering those interactions, and they're still able to physically contribute to family life. You know, we all want to be that patient that at 95, just doesn't wake up one morning and the night before we were, you know, hugging our honey or reading to our grandchildren, tucking great grandchildren taking the bed. That's the goal. So, that's what we do, and we really try to marry those two goals between the Center for Healthcare Innovation, that I'll talk about a little bit later, and Geriatric Medicine and the Sticht Center for Healthy Aging and Alzheimer's prevention. Well you touched on this a moment ago, but I would like you to elaborate on how you see this work impacting patients' quality of life? Yes. Uh, I see a lot of patients, you know, journey through the health care system and at the end of that journey they're not really sure are they better off or not. Um, and has the healthcare system addressed what's the most important thing to them. And usually what I find is that patients, especially this Center for Healthcare Innovation, is unique in the nation, even in the world, there...

Tell me if this sounds familiar. You tell yourself you're not going to eat that left over ice cream in the freezer. I mean, this is the new healthy you after all. But then you have this nightmare-ish day at work – you know – one of those days where everything goes wrong, and you're pulled in 15 different directions and nothing you do seem good enough. So, you leave work late in a foul mood, and the traffic is horrendous. Where do all these people come from and where did they learn to drive? You finally get home only to find that your husband forgot to pick up the shrimp you were planning to use for your stir fry tonight. Seriously? The man has the attention span and memory of a gnat. Now you need to improvise, because the neighbors are coming over in 45 minutes for dinner. So, you pull some frozen chicken out of the freezer and throw it in the microwave to defrost while you curse your idiotic husband under your breath. But – you're a bad ass, and you manage to pull off a delicious dinner and put on a happy face and are a gracious host. You finally shoo your company out the door and clean up. You curl up in your favorite chair, turn on the tv, and for the first time today take a big breath and relax. And then you remember the ice cream. You consider it for a moment and then decide, nope, you've been on a health kick lately and things are going well. You start flipping through the recently added selections on Netflix, and the image of the ice cream comes back, but this time you can almost taste it's chocolatey goodness. You consider the proposition for a minute – I mean after the day you've had, a little bit of ice cream would be a nice treat. But your willpower wins, you put the ice cream out of your mind and go back to browsing new releases on Netflix. But there's some part of your brain, deep down, that's just relentless, and suddenly you're sitting there with your remote in your hand reasoning with yourself why having a little bit of ice cream is no big deal. I mean, you've had the day from hell, and you've been so good with your exercise and nutrition this week, why wouldn't a little ice cream be the perfect reward right now. And somehow – almost magically – you go from having that conversation with yourself to digging into the bottom of the container to get the very last bit ice cream out of the corner of the carton. And as you come out of your ice cream coma, you think to yourself… how does this keep happening to me? My guest today is Dr. Glenn Livingston. Glenn is an author and psychologist who has dedicated decades to researching the nature of overeating and bingeing. Join us today as Glenn shares his thoughts on the causes of overeating, and more importantly what steps we can take to permanently end binge eating. You can connect with Glenn.

Luísa Lopes é neurocientista e dedica-se ao estudo dos mecanismos que causam o envelhecimento cognitivo precoce, em particular ao nível da memória. A convidada é actualmente coordenadora do grupo de investigação em “neurobiologia do envelhecimento e doença” no Instituto de Medicina Molecular e Professora Convidada na Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de Lisboa. -> Apoie este projecto e faça parte da comunidade de mecenas do 45 Graus em: 45graus.parafuso.net/apoiar _______________ Índice da conversa: (5:59) Como o nosso cérebro envelhece — e porque não acontece igual em toda a gente. | Mais educação = envelhecimento mais lento | Ressonância magnética funcional | Blue zones | A importância do sono. Estatísticas de sono em Portugal. As crianças. | Diminuição da incidência da demência nas últimas décadas.

(1:15:19) Os benefícios da cafeína. Estudo citado (estudo, notícia) (1:20:04) Livro recomendado: O Homem que Confundiu a Mulher com um Chapéu, de Oliver Sacks _______________ Todos sabemos que, infelizmente, com a idade vamos perdendo gradualmente capacidade cognitiva, desde a memória à capacidade de aprender coisas novas. Mas a experiência diz-nos também que existe muita variabilidade entre as pessoas: há quem numa idade avançada se mantenha grande acuidade intelectual, e continue inclusive a trabalhar, mesmo em trabalhos criativos e desafiantes. E, no sentido contrário, há pessoas em que o envelhecimento cognitivo é acelerado e surge prematuramente, por norma associado a doenças neurodegenerativas. Por isso, é provável que todos nós em algum momento nos tenhamos perguntado: porque é que o nosso cérebro envelhece? É simplesmente uma consequência do envelhecimento geral do corpo? E, já agora, será possível evitar sermos assolados por doenças de envelhecimento cognitivo prematuro e, além disso, abrandar o mais possível o envelhecimento natural? Foram estas e outras perguntas que fiz à convidada deste episódio, a neurocientista Luísa Lopes. Começámos por falar sobre o que acontece exactamente no nosso corpo (e no cérebro em particular) que causa a diminuição de funções cognitivas. Falámos dos neurónios (as células fundamentais do cérebro, de dendrites (o imenso conjunto de ramos que liga um neurónio a outros neurónios) e de sinapses (a ponta desses ramos, onde ocorre a transferência de informação para o outro neurónio). Falámos também sobre que hábitos devemos ter para retardar esse processo, como dormir bem, fazer exercício, comer bem, manter a mente activa e -- o que pode ser menos óbvio -- socializar. Discutimos também o que distingue as doenças neurodegenerativas do envelhecimento normal, e os tratamentos que existem para elas -- bem como das suas limitações. Mas dormir bem, comer bem, fazer exercício não só dá trabalho como apenas serve para adiar o problema; o que gostaríamos todos era de poder reverter o envelhecimento. Por isso, no final, falámos também de alguns tratamentos revolucionários (mas também ainda pouco certos e com algumas barreiras éticas, como normalmente acontece); por exemplo, experiências recentes feitas com ratos em que se fez a transfusão de sangue de um animal novo num velho, conseguindo com isso reverter o envelhecimento cognitivo. Foi uma conversa bem interessante. _______________ Obrigado aos mecenas do podcast: Julie Piccini, Ana Raquel Guimarães Galaró family, José Luís Malaquias, Francisco Hermenegildo, Nuno Costa, Abílio Silva, Salvador Cunha, Bruno Heleno, António llms, Helena Monteiro, BFDC, Pedro Lima Ferreira, Miguel van Uden, João Ribeiro, Nuno e Ana, João Baltazar, Miguel Marques, Corto Lemos, Carlos Martins, Tiago Leite Tomás Costa, Rita Sá Marques, Geoffrey Marcelino, Luis, Maria Pimentel, Rui Amorim, RB, Pedro Frois Costa, Gabriel Sousa, Mário Lourenço, Filipe Bento Caires, Diogo Sampaio Viana, Tiago Taveira, Ricardo Leitão, Pedro B.

If you're reading this, chances are you're interested in healthy aging. We can look at healthy aging as a spectrum – with sickness on the far left, and optimal health and vitality on the far right. And I think it's fair to say that regardless of where you currently fall on this spectrum, you'd like to move further to the right, towards a life full of health and vitality. But exactly HOW do we do that? And what separates those that are successful in this journey from those that seem to struggle? There's so much conflicting information floating around – most of it from people and companies trying to sell us something – it's no wonder that many of us struggle when it comes to long term sustainable health and fitness. Today we're going to cut through the hype and clutter and focus on the essential elements of strong vital healthy aging. In other words – how to become ageless men and women. My guest today is Nate Wilkins. Nate is a health and wellness educator, renowned speaker, fitness trainer, and author. Nate is also the co-founder of Ageless Workout where he teaches that ageless is a mindset and that we can defy the aging process and live our healthiest, most vital lives as we age gracefully. Join us today as Nate share what it take to obtain – and maintain – an ageless mindset and body.

Dion Dickman, associate professor of neuroscience and gerontology, joins George Shannon to discuss how the nervous system processes and stabilizes the transfer of information in healthy brains, aging brains and after injury or disease. Quotes from the episode: On synaptic plasticity: “Synapses are essential, fundamental units of nervous system function and plasticity is this remarkable ability to change. And throughout early development into maturation and even into old age, synapses just have this amazing resilience to change and adapt to different situations and injury disease, things like that. So synaptic plasticity is really the essence of what it means to grow and mature and change throughout life. Things like learning and memory all depend on changes in synaptic function and structure and it's really a key area of research for many of us.” On challenges to maintaining nervous system stability: “You can imagine in the incredibly complex environment of your brain, where neurons are making synapses with thousands of other neurons, that itself is a big challenge to maintain stability. Sometimes I'm kind of amazed that we don't walk around like raving lunatics half the time and our brains remain stable. When you think of disorders of excitability or stability, things like seizures and various forms of defects in cognition ultimately come down to not being able to stabilize or maintain your neural circuit function. And this really just comes down to normal development that all of your nervous system has to stay stable and your synapses are the key substrates to maintain stability.” On the aging brain: “.. a lot of studies are showing is that this cognitive decline that happens in aging really is ultimately due some sort of a maladaptive reduction in plasticity. And it's kind of amazing, but, young humans, our brains are remarkably plastic and resilient, and that resiliency and plasticity seems to degrade over time and into old age… We think as old age happens .. people's memories start to lapse, even in the absence of any disease, they're not quite as sharp. We think this all ultimately comes down to some limitations imposed on neuroplasticity and that's a major area of the research. On studying diseases like schizophrenia, which cannot be seen in brain imaging: “There are no good biomarkers for neuropsychiatric diseases like schizophrenia and bipolar and things like that. So, there are basically two ways to study these kinds of diseases. One is through behavior where you try to get animals to model behaviors that mimic neuropsychiatric diseases. There's some good work happening rodent systems. Although I find it to be honest, very difficult to know whether a mouse is showing the defect in social interaction, for example, that are characteristic of autism or schizophrenia for that matter. So the alternative instead is not to actually model the disease in drosophila or mice, but to take humans in which we can mine their genetics to find genes highly associated with the disease in humans and find out what the fundamental function of these genes are. And that's kind of the strategy that we take. So we found about 30 genes now that when mutated in drosophila give rise to defects in this process of homeostatic plasticity at synapses, and the vast majority of these genes have links to human diseases that give rise to neuropsychiatric diseases like autism spectrum disorder, schizophrenia, seizure disorders and, bipolar disorder as well. And so I think by understanding the fundamental functions of individual genes, we can extrapolate what might be happening in humans when those genes aren't functioning properly.” On the importance of sleep: “…one of the most fascinating questions in neuroscience, or really science more generally is what is the function of sleep? What is the essential function of sleep and what role does synaptic homeostasis and disease play a role in sleep behavior? So, it's quite interesting that almost every neuropsychiatric disease has a sleep disorder associated with it. That's already very interesting. If you look at schizophrenics, their sleep patterns tend to be very fragmented. Whereas people with depression, chronic depression seem to sleep too much, much more than is needed and many neurodegenerative diseases of old age like Parkinson's, and Alzheimer's one of the earliest predictors of these are sleep dysfunction at earlier stages and there's also many studies that have shown that if you treat the sleep dysfunction, you can improve the symptoms of neuropsychiatric disorders. A schizophrenic, for example, might get if you improve their sleep, their symptoms, cognitive symptoms seem to improve children with autism spectrum disorder have, big defects in sleep behavior during development. And it's thought that if you treat the sleep defect, you can improve the phenotypes of autism. So a lot of research seems to be showing that synaptic homeostasis and plasticity and sleep behavior and disease all share really important and synergistic links between them. And I think that really is the major challenge for the future is to understand what happens to synapses during sleep. What happens to synapses during various neuropsychiatric diseases and can this intimate relationship between sleep and, and synaptic plasticity be targeted as a way to improve and treat psychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases.” On bringing a multidisciplinary approach to research: This is a big advantage, I think of especially working at USC, in, you know, straddling different schools like Dornsife and gerontology and really being able to throw everything we can in our toolkit at a question or a problem. So, our lab is a drosophila genetics lab. We do neurogenetics. But we do electrophysiology to understand how synapses function we do basic imaging to see synaptic structures and how they work. But we also do a lot of super resolution imaging. Now we've got a super resolution microscope that we've recently purchased that allows us to look at the nano architecture of synapses and how they might change during defects and plasticity and disease. And finally, we're doing things like calcium and voltage imaging to really see the dynamics of how, you know, visualize plasticity happening in real time or dysfunction happening as they go on. So I think having a large toolkit to throw everything we can at a question really lets you see the same problem from many different perspectives. On the value of basic scientific research: “Science is for me a curiosity driven process. It's great that there are ramifications to disease and health and humans, but what initially inspired me was just to understand how does nature work and how does the nervous system work. And so I want to just say supporting basic research, basic science, even if it doesn't have any direct implications on disease right away, I think is really important as part of scholarship, as part of what we at the mission of our university, but also just as our world. I think to study basic processes and just understand how nature works and then the applications of them with all evolve. You know CRISPR CAS9, as many of you have probably heard about, all came from basic research and now it is going to revolutionize health and disease.”

In this episode of the BioAge podcast, Ann Beliën joins Chris Patil today to share the story behind Rejuvenate Biomed, and her journey into the longevity sector. She started her career at Johnson & Johnson after receiving her postdoctoral degree, and during her tenure, she worked in scientific, operational, and strategic roles. Twenty years later, she became the founder and CEO of Rejuvenate Biomed, a Belgian company evaluating combinations of safe and synergistic drugs that target physical decline and promote healthy aging. One of Rejuvenate's main focus areas is sarcopenia, the loss of muscle mass and strength during aging. When muscle decay starts to prevent people from leaving the house and living a quality life, mental health and quality of life decline rapidly. The company's first combination therapy to reach clinical trials, currently in a Phase 1b study, will be initially tested as a treatment for this complex disease. More clinical trials are in the works, with two new combinations entering preclinical trials next year. The Finer Details of This Episode: Longevity sector outside the U.S. Working for Johnson and Johnson Rejuvenate BioMed's in silico analysis The complexity of sarcopenia as a disease Phase 2 clinical trials The funding environment Quotes: ““If we want to do something in the longevity space, we need to provide the product in a chronic fashion, and safety is of course very important. So, why not start from something that already has a proven safety record?” “The company is first identifying individual drugs that have interesting properties with respect to aging, and then trying to devise novel combinations of them that can be used to treat age related diseases.” “Aging is not currently an endpoint that can be used as a trial outcome. So to bring drugs to trial, we have to identify appropriate clinical indications.” “People with sarcopenia are not able anymore to go to the store, to leave their house. And the social impact is huge… they become isolated.” “We want to have functional, happy people that are living their lives to their fullest potential for convenience.” “We want to learn as much as possible also from the technical perspective, which can be an added benefit not only to the company, but also to the community on the comparisons of these different methods of measuring muscle mass.” “I think we've also seen that in the United States, where the biggest science story of all of our lifetimes, the COVID pandemic, revealed the importance of thinking hard about diseases that disproportionately affect older people, and the broader ramifications of that for the rest of the population.” “Your advisors should be representing different aspects, different ways of thinking and different challenges. So our advisory boards are always very interesting, because you get all these different perspectives.” “In the aging field, people always dive deep and figure out the positive side and do the learning and just pull it through. And that's what I really like.” Links: Email questions, comments, and feedback to email@example.com Translating Aging on Twitter:https://twitter.com/BioAgePodcast ( @bioagepodcast) BIOAGE Labs Websitehttps://bioagelabs.com/ ( BIOAGELabs.com) BIOAGE Labs Twitterhttps://twitter.com/bioagelabs?lang=en ( @bioagelabs) BIOAGE Labshttps://www.linkedin.com/company/bioage-labs/ ( LinkedIn) Rejuvenate Biomed Homepage: https://www.rejuvenatebiomed.com/en (rejuvenatebiomed.com)

In the Western world, aging is demonized and the wisdom of elders is ignored and even suppressed. This is the complete antithesis of indigenous cultures where people age in a healthy way, and live well into their 90s with full, meaningful existences. It's not just about physiology, how they age is driven by their beliefs and the culture around them. What can we learn from these centenarians about aging? Is the link between disease and getting older real? In this episode, clinical neuropsychologist, world expert in healthy longevity, and the founder of Biocognitive Science, Dr. Mario Martinez returns to the show to share his studies on centenarians and profound wisdom about our world today. Aging is an interaction between the predisposition of genetics, the belief systems that you have and the environment that you live in and how you teach illnesses to your body. -Dr. Mario Martinez Three Things We Learned Why science and technology will never have all the answersWhat are the perils of being a culture that only looks at things through the lens of conventional, reductionist science? The inquisition of political correctnessDo cultures with more political correctness breed more negativity and misery? Healthy sadness vs. morbid sadnessHow do healthy centenarians view grief so that it doesn't turn into prolonged suffering and eventually disease? Guest Bio Dr. Mario Martinez is a clinical neuropsychologist and proponent of cultural psychoneuroimmunology, world expert in healthy longevity, bestselling author of the The MindBody Code and The Mindbody Self and the Founder of Biocognitive Science. He specializes in how cultural and transcendental beliefs affect health and longevity. For more information, visit https://www.biocognitiveculture.com/ and subscribe to his YouTube channel.
Dr. Barrie Tan is hailed as the world's foremost expert on vitamin E. His research expertise includes lipid-soluble nutrients and their impact on chronic conditions. He was the first to introduce tocotrienol's benefits to the nutrition industry and developed the first-ever tocopherol-free tocotrienol product derived from annatto. Beyond tocotrienol, Dr. Tan's research now spans into geranylgeraniol, a critical endogenous nutrient for healthy aging. Dr. Tan is currently the President of American River Nutrition, a natural health R&D company he started with his wife, Elizabeth, in 1998. Described as a scientific pioneer, his mission is simple… improve the everyday health of people's lives. In this episode, Dr. Tan and I go into detail about: The roles and benefits of Vitamin E in healthy aging; The difference between tocotrienols and tocopherols; How do tocotrienols combat common chronic illnesses; The function of GG (geranylgeraniol) and its relationship with statins; And so much more!

What's the difference between lean healthy fit people and those who seem to constantly struggle with weight issues? Why is it that so many of us have such a hard time of not necessarily losing weight, but of maintaining a lean healthy body? Is it a lack of willpower or motivation – maybe these folks lack the grit and the determination necessary for long term changes. Or maybe it's lack of knowledge – if they just understood what foods to eat and what exercises to do that would lead them to the promised land of having a lean fit healthy body. Or maybe the problem is that the vast majority of nutrition and fitness advise is coming from people who are already lean fit and healthy. And what works to keep them lean and fit might be terrible advice for someone who has 30,40,50 or more pounds to lose – because they are in a different starting place. Maybe it's time to reexamine why diets fail, and more importantly, when they do fail, why do we blame the dieter for that failure? My guest today is Dr. David Prologo. David is a dual board-certified interventional radiologist and obesity medicine specialist, and the author of the book titled The Catching Point Transformation: A Twelve-Week Weight Loss Strategy Based in Reality. He has spent more than twenty years specifically analyzing the phenomenon of diet attrition and why diets fail. Join us this week as David explains exactly how those of us who struggle with sustainable weight loss can meet themselves where they are and learn how to prepare themselves for a successful journey to obtaining – and maintaining – a lifelong lean, fit, and healthy body.

Where do you hurt? Is it your back? That's common for those of us over 50. Or is it your knees? Maybe you experience pain when you lift your arms over your head – or maybe you no longer have that capability. Do you experience headaches? Many of us experience some type of chronic pain, and this pain often limits us from being as active as we'd like or participating in activities that we love. And perhaps we've lived with this pain for so long that we've developed a fatalistic attitude – perhaps you've written it off as, “this is just what happens as we get older.”Our guest today is here to change how we think about chronic aches and pains, and the steps we can take to finally – and permanently – learn to move pain free.My guest today is Rick Olderman. Rick is an author, speaker, personal trainer, and physical therapist with over 25 years of experience in helping people cure chronic pain permanently. Join us this week as Rick discusses how our day-to-day posture and movement creates pain, and more importantly what we can do to correct this and live healthy pain-free lives. Just one note before we dive into our episode today. Rick uses a model skeleton as a visual aid at several points during our discussion today.

Verity Breen has raced over a hundred marathons as well as 5ks, 10ks, half marathons and ultras, and she has had a lot of wins and top finishes throughout. She's won numerous state titles in her home country of Australia, and she's been the Australian national champion in the marathon and the 50km (roughly 31 miles) road race. She's represented her home country at both the 50km road world championships and the mountain running world championships. In her earlier days, when she was competing in triathlon in the Olympic distance races, she was a member of the Australian world championship team for 20 to 25 year-olds. This is all to say, Verity understands how to prepare for and execute peak performances at an elite level. In her story, Verity shares how she developed her self-coaching and training skills, and how she's taking all that experience to the trails. She's developing her technical abilities and overcoming fears. Verity also runs watch-free, choosing instead to rely on her well honed ability to pace herself and listen to her body. Simply put, she loves to run and her enthusiasm is infectious.

In response to several requests from listeners, we have as our guest today, Dr. Matt Kaeberlein, a professor of pathology at the University of Washington. Matt is well-known for his investigations into the basic mechanisms of aging. Much of his research in this area is focused on identifying interventions that promote healthspan and lifespan. In today's interview, we talk to Matt about the biology of aging and what he has learned about slowing the aging process. In 1999, Matt and his colleague Mitch McVey discovered that overexpression of the SIR2 gene is sufficient to extend lifespan in yeast. SIR stands for silent information regulator, and we have an interesting discussion about how Matt's research and 1999 discovery have elevated SIR2 to the forefront of aging research. Also, some of Matt's most recent and fascinating investigations have been into rapamycin, the only known pharmacological agent to extend lifespan. His research has shed new light on the role rapamycin plays in delaying age-related dysfunction in rodents, dogs, and humans. We also have a fun discussion with Matt about his research showing that rapamycin may have the potential to reduce the mortality of companion dogs. The paper that came out of this research landed Matt on the front page of the New York Times and received prominent play in the national and overseas media. Other topics we cover include: Matt's attempts to uncover the molecular mechanism behind lifespan extension via calorie restriction. His research into mTOR, which is a protein in every cell, and how inhibiting mTOR has been shown to extend the lifespan of insects, rodents, and animals. Matt's 2006 study that showed fasting extends lifespan in worms more than caloric restriction. And an article Matt published last year that summarized several of the most popular anti-aging diets, comparing them with classical caloric restriction. In addition to his work in his Kaeberlein Lab, Matt is the co-director of the Nathan Shock Center of Excellence in the Basic Biology of Aging and the founding director of the Healthy Aging and Longevity Research Institute at the University of Washington. He also is the founder and co-director of the Dog Aging Project. Show notes: [00:02:53] Dawn asks Matt and his youth and where he grew up. [00:03:06] Ken asks if it is true that Matt spent a good deal of his youth “up to no good.” [00:04:20] Dawn mentions that while Matt got decent grades in school, it wasn't until he went to college that he became studious. Dawn asks Matt if it true that he had originally decided to skip college. [00:05:42] Dawn asks how Matt ended up in Bellingham at Western Washington. [00:06:41] Dawn asks how in the world, despite not liking high school and working a morning shift at UPS for two years after graduating, Matt decided to head off for college and major in biochemistry of all things. [00:08:01] Ken asks what led Matt to travel across the country to Boston and MIT's biology program. [00:09:57] Ken asks why Matt decided to focus his research on the biology of aging. [00:11:57] Matt talks about what he did following his Ph.D. [00:13:15] Dawn asks Matt what kind of research he did at the University of Washington Department of Genome Sciences for his post-doc, and how this research related to aging. [00:15:10] Ken mentions that it was during Matt's undergrad that he decided to focus on the question, “To what extent are the mechanisms of aging evolutionarily conserved?” Ken asks Matt what caused him to arrive at that for his central focus. [00:19:36] Dawn mentions that the discovery by Matt, and Mitch McVey, that overexpression of SIR2 (Silent Information Regulator) is sufficient to extend life span in yeast is credited with promoting SIR2 to the forefront of aging research. Dawn goes on to mention that SIR genes are determinants of life span in yeast mother cells. Dawn asks Matt to give a quick primer on the SIR genes a...
We've talked a good bit about diabetes on this podcast, mainly focusing on Type 2 diabetes and ways to prevent, arrest, or reverse it with lifestyle modifications. But we haven't done an entire episode on diabetes – until now. But instead of having a PhD diabetes expert come on and give us a clinical explanation of what exactly type 2 diabetes is and then give us steps on how we might prevent it, today we'll discuss diabetes from the perspective of someone who has been living with type 2 diabetes for over a decade. We'll hear his story of how he ended up with a diabetes diagnosis in his 40s, the challenges this brought into his life, and how it's taken him more than 10 years to start to turn his lifestyle around – and the profound impact taking ownership of his health has had on his life. My guest today is Dobie Maxwell. Dobie is a published author of the true crime book “Monkey in the Middle” and has been a professional touring comedian and morning radio host since 1985. He was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 2011 and continues to learn about it regularly while making sure to laugh about his triumphs and falls along the way. He is also the co-host of the podcast Just My Type, which challenges the perceptions of diabetes management by bringing a light-hearted tone to their discussion. Join us this week as Dobie shares his personal story of being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes with humor and grace, and the steps he's taking to manage and revers the disease.
