New Stuff on Aging

“New Stuff on Aging…what now?” you ask.

It’s like this: we now know the primary cause of aging and related diseases associated with the process. It seems to come down to mutations, destruction and death at a cellular level cause primarily by mitochondrial loss.

Remember mitochondria? They are the little systems in every living cell in your body which extract energy from the food you eat every day. By “little”, I mean little. In the skin on your toe you have about 500 Mitochondria per cell. Not much going on there, right? However, in the brain you have over 10,000 Mitochondria in ever neuron cell. Lots of activity there and energy is burned at a high rate.

When Do We Decide?

When do we decide?

“What?” you will ask.

…..that the road we take is the right road and that we take it for the right reasons!


Let me explain: many years ago I began to learn this thing called the whole foods approach to living. Later, we started calling it a holistic lifestyle. And, still later, we are calling it Integrative Living.

At that first exposure, I made progress in beating swollen joints (knees)…no more donuts, less sugar and more exercise. Also, at that time a friend of mine, shall we call him William, started to notice my strange ways regarding food at work. I commented to him that being a Type II diabetic was somewhat a choice rather than just plain bad luck. And, I added, he could be cured of this condition if he worked at it.

​He promptly told me I was a nut and his doctor had assured him there was absolutely no cure…just maintenance. “OK”, I said but I knew that his 250-pound tonnage was mostly to blame even if he and old Doc would not go there! He was only 32. Three years later he missed work for three days in a row. He was found dead in his apartment, remains of a largely uneaten 24-ounce steak still on his dinner plate!

When should he have decided? Amazingly enough, he was talking to me about changing, maybe going on a weight loss program but, “That kind of thing is just TOO expensive.” He did however, have enough extra money for an extra-large pickup, hunting in Colorado and at least 6 Cokes a day. As they say: “Go figure!”

When Others Innovate

We have all seen some widget or other on late night television and said out loud to the TV, “I thought of that 5 years ago!” Well, we actually did, but unlike the seller on the tube…we procrastinated and never followed through.

We’ve all done it!


Still others are brimming over with ideas and share them with everyone hoping that someone will back them in some product venture…failing because they never researched to find out it had been on the market for years somewhere else.

Then, there are the quiet people who find a unique opportunity, research it, check the marketability, production costs, etc. and begin producing something useful. Maybe, it was initially started on a shoestring or just maybe someone in a better economic position bought enough of the product to create a successful venture.


​That’s what happened to Time Challenger Labs International, Inc., a successful Texas and Ecuadorian company that started business in 2005 (originally under a different name) and landed a Network Radio Distribution deal where their product is advertised throughout 9 hour day radio programs. (Live for 3 hours in the U.S. and rebroadcasts worldwide 2 times later that day via shortwave.)

Challenge

Are you challenged? Do you challenge yourself? What does it matter anyway?

These are questions people ask every day. But, are these questions necessary or could they possibly be life changing? Are the answers even worth considering?

Let’s take a look.

Back in 1970, I finished a 2 year Junior College with a degree in Telecommunications. Three of my friends refused to go on for 2 more years and complete a Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Science. It was not a problem with money for them. It was commitment to “Such a long time”.

Two years? Yes. They viewed the extra time as just too much time out of their lives. They chunked Challenge aside for an easier life. Years later, every one of these gentlemen could advance no further in their work without a B.S.

Was their choice wise? I’m not here to judge.

This article is merely an examination of the concept of Challenge. I personally feel Challenge is extremely necessary to get the most out of life. Without it, we just Settle.

Living Like There is No Tomorrow

Ever heard that phrase?

Of, course. Everyone has, but what DOES IT MEAN?


Most people live their lives a bit restrained. They pay their bills, raise their children, go to work and come home, go to a movie, out to eat; the usual things.

They seldom participate in extreme anything…

So, just who Lives LIKE THERE IS NO TOMORROW? Well, it just might be these same people….

“What? How can you say that?”

Well, it might just depend on what defines risky behavior. Let me explain.

We all pretty much eat what we are told to eat, right? From the very beginning, right? Well, it doesn’t stop when we leave home. We are still “told what to eat and drink”.

Antibiotic Gloom and Doom

Over and over we are told the world is ending for modern medicine regarding the fight against germs and viruses of every form. We now know, people are dying in hospitals from flesh-eating bacteria and the elderly are succumbing to upper respiratory infections by the hundreds of thousands.


What can be done? Hand wringing for sure. Research…yes. Money, money, money…you bet!

What if all of this were simply due to patents and control of the marketplace, not medicine? It’s true. Let me explain.

Katie Wants You to Know

It’s hard to believe it’s been almost 3 years since Mrs. Smith brought Katie to see me at my office.

The complaints were the usual: low energy, a seeming lack of attention, being off in her field of competition, etc. She even seemed to have a bit of stiffness in her joints. All this was very bad when she would compete nationally as a superior athlete.

So, the first thing I asked was the typical veterinarian type questions (I am not a vet but, I am a nutritionist and Katie is a beautiful, Golden Retriever)

Mrs. Smith provided me with a long list of Katie’s dietary components. I immediately spotted the heavy reliance on dog food with grains as the first source of problems. This, I suggested, had to go if she wanted to eliminate the lack of attention, lower energy and above average stiffness before every exercise session and competition. I asked if Katie was getting eggs each day…yes, but we upped it to 3 each day. There was also the need for increasing essential oils filled with amino acids. We chose 1 tablespoon of cold pressed hemp oil. We also added one human capsule of Time Challenger for her mitochondria.

R.O.M.E.O.

The other day a friend mentioned during morning coffee that a local man’s daughter who had become a successful doctor in San Antonio, TX had suffered a major heart attack. I winced. This was a girl who had been in high school with my own daughter. It only seemed to have been just a few years ago…

I have coffee two or three days a week at a local café at 4:30 A.M. with my friends of the R.O.M.E.O. Club…that’s Retired Old Men Eating Out. We, as every other morning coffee group of retired people across the
country, solve the problems of the community, the nation and the world. It’s press coverage we lack to get these solutions implemented…no matter.
