Dr. Ron Hoffman, MD is a New York-based Functional Medicine physician. In addition to his medical practice, his Intelligent Medicine podcast is the longest-running M.D.-hosted health show on syndicated radio. Dr. Hoffman recently interviewed me on the topic of my new book which is titled Rapamycin, mTOR, Autophagy & Treating mTOR Syndrome. Rapamycin is the most promising life extension drug that has ever been discovered, resulting in 25-60% life extension in various species of animals. In animal models, rapamycin has been shown to slow down the onset of many age-related disease. In the first-ever human clinical trial, a rapamycin analog substantially improved immune system function in elderly humans, which is an indication that rapamycin can improve both health span and life span in humans. Here are the links to part 1 and part 2 of my interview with Dr. Ron Hoffman on his Intelligent Medicine podcast.

PEMF medical devices effectively slow and reverse biological aging. A Microcirculatory Theory of Aging has been proposed by Dr. Kunlin Jin and published June 2019 in Aging and Disease. Dr. Jin’s A Microcirculatory Theory of Aging explains that poor micro-capillary circulation causes hypoxia (low oxygen), which results in increased free radical damage, especially to mitochondria. This results in a decline of cellular energy production and accelerated aging. Read more
A new theory of aging titled A Microcirculatory Theory of Aging has been proposed by Dr. Kunlin Jin and published in the June 2019 issue of Aging and Disease. Dr. Jin’s theory explains that poor circulation in the body’s micro-capillaries is the fundamental cause of aging. It is the 70,000 miles of micro-capillaries, NOT your arteries, veins & heart, that deliver oxygen & nutrients to the trillions of cells in your body.
Dr. Jin’s theory provides a deeper layer of understanding to the aging process. Poor micro-capillary circulation causes hypoxia (low oxygen) in cells which increases production of free radicals and specifically damage to DNA in mitochondria. Thus, poor micro-capillary circulation results in decreased delivery of nutrients & oxygen to cells and a decline in production of cellular energy (ATP). This causes cells to under function and mal-function, resulting in cellular death. This is the underlying cause of cellular death and aging.Read more
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is
one of the body's most important antioxidants and it is also required
for energy production in all cells. In this post, I will review a study
that reveals coenzyme Q10's remarkable ability to slow down the aging
process. Coenzyme Q10 is truly a remarkable life extension nutritional
supplement. I will also explain why most CoQ10 products have very low
rates of absorption. My readers can order highly absorable Bio-Quinone Q10 Gold at 20% discount.
CoQ10 Dramatically Extends Life Span: Studies
evaluating things that influence lifespan are difficult to conduct in
humans because they take too long. Instead, researchers use small animal
models which compresses the story into a much shorter time scale. I
want to discuss an experiment done with mice that reveals the power of
coenzyme Q10. This experiment was conducted by Emile Bliznakov, MD who
subsequently wrote a book titled The Miracle Nutrient: Coenzyme Q10.
Metformin (brand name Glucophage) is the most commonly prescribed drug in the world for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Because metformin effectively lowers both blood glucose and blood insulin levels, it also reduces the risk to many other chronic degenerative diseases. Consequently, in addition to its use in the treatment of type 2 diabetes, metformin is now becoming recognized as a therapy to slow down aging.
In 2016 the FDA made an unprecedented announcement when it approved a study to examine the effect of metformin on the biology of aging in humans. This study is titled Targeting Aging with Metformin, or the TAME study. This is the first time in history that the FDA has approved any human clinical trial with a goal of establishing a drug’s ability to protect against multiple diseases of aging. In previous studies with different species of animals, therapy with metformin has resulted in significant increases in lifespan. Many healthy people are now electing to take metformin for its ability to slow down aging processes and increase longevity. I want to explain how metformin works so you will understand why it produces so many additional health benefits beyond treating type 2 diabetes.Read more
People frequently ask me for recommendations on where to get current information on health topics. I finally decided to list some of my favorite resources for health-related continuing education and post it on my blog. However, I’m going to start by providing a little background about how I developed my passion for learning and teaching about health. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin/Madison in 1966 with a BS degree in pharmacy. Although I had gained a great deal of knowledge about biochemistry, physiology and medicine, I eventually found the practice of retail pharmacy to be quite repetitive, boring and unsatisfyingRead more
