  • What if you could live forever?

  • We already have the technology to reverse the aging process.

  • So if you want to live a longer healthier life, what we're about to tell you will change everything.

  • There have been several research studies published recently with extraordinary findings.

  • Not only do certain technologies have the ability to slow the aging process, but some can even reverse it altogether.

  • The interesting thing is we've had this technology for a long time and have used it for medical procedures in the past.

  • The technology we're referring to our hyperbaric oxygen chambers.

  • If you're a scuba diver, you probably have at least heard of the device because they're used to treat someone who sends too quickly and gets air bubbles in their blood.

  • The name given to this deadly circumstances.

  • The bends.

  • This can be fatal if the bubbles make it to the brain and cause an aneurysm, the hyperbaric oxygen chamber can be used to re pressurize someone to remove the air bubbles from their bloodstream and allow for more oxygen to enter the body.

  • A recent research study conducted at a tel Aviv University and the Shamir Medical Center in Israel have found another use for hyperbaric oxygen treatments, reversing the aging process.

  • This study was conducted by Professor shy, afraid and dr Amir Haddad who use 35 healthy individuals aged 64 over for their experiment, They used hyperbaric oxygen chambers to increase the pressure and amount of oxygen the patients were receiving, each patient was given this treatment 60 times over a period of 90 days.

  • What they found has scientists around the world excited most scientists believe that aging and the physical changes that happen as you get older or a byproduct of damaged DNA.

  • DNA controls all of your traits from what you look like to the amount of hormones you produce, but DNA begins to degrade over time.

  • The older you get, the more damage accumulates on the DNA of yourselves on a basic level.

  • This is what causes aging and if you're lucky enough to remain disease free, the reason your body will eventually give up is because it can no longer create new cells to replace the old ones due to damaged DNA.

  • Your body has natural ways of combating this process, which allows humans often to live into their seventies and beyond.

  • But death is inevitable because eventually the DNA in your cells become so damaged that other physical problems begin to arise, such as diabetes, Alzheimer's and organ failure.

  • However, what the research study conducted by afraid Ian had a knee showed was that the DNA of their patients did not just stop degrading, but actually started to repair itself.

  • To understand what this means.

  • We need to understand what scientists believe are the two main causes of aging.

  • The first has to do with telomeres.

  • These are sections of your DNA on the ends of each year chromosomes that act like a protective helmet for your DNA.

  • This keeps the DNA from getting damaged each time to sell replicates.

  • However, each time yourselves do divide part of the telomeres lost.

  • Once the telomere sections of your chromosomes are gone, the DNA begins to degrade.

  • This causes yourselves to stop working properly and the symptoms of old age begin.

  • The second thing yourselves do that causes aging is to become sin esa.

  • This is when cells stop dividing and remain dormant in the body.

  • This is a natural process but these senescent cells can often cause problems for the healthy cells around them and have a negative effect on the body itself.

  • Many scientists believe these senescent cells may play a role in certain conditions associated with aging such as osteoarthritis and cancer.

  • So how do we stop the aging process or reverse it?

  • We would have to find a way to regenerate the length of the telomeres on the chromosomes and we need to destroy or remove senescent cells.

  • What the tel Aviv University research team found after examining the cells of the patients in their studies was astonishing by using the hyperbaric oxygen chambers to increase the levels of oxygen in a person's body, cellular regeneration can occur.

  • This is not new to science as these devices have been used by medical professionals to increase immune responses and speed up the healing process in the past.

  • However, what if Freddy and adani found was even more incredible.

  • They looked at the immune cells contained in each patient's blood who participated in the experiment from these cells.

  • They could examine each person's DNA and what they found was that in some cases their telomere lengths had increased by up to 38%.

  • This is amazing because it could mean the hyperbaric oxygen therapy did not just slow the degradation of telomeres and cells but actually reversed it.

  • If further research can duplicate these results, then we may have found a way to indefinitely repair telomere length and therefore reverse one of the causes of aging.

  • But what about the senescent cells?

  • Was there any reduction in these harmful cells?

  • The answer is, yes, surprisingly, the researchers found there was a decrease of up to 37% in the number of senescent cells in the patients of the study.

  • This means that the second component of aging could also be dealt with by increasing the oxygen flow through the body.

  • Using hyperbaric oxygen therapy, the increase in telomere length and the decrease in senescent cells are two components need to stop aging and reverse its effects.

  • What is really important to consider is that if continued exposure to hyperbaric oxygen therapy keeps increasing these beneficial effects on the body, we could theoretically turn back someone's biological clock and return their body to a younger state, let that sink in for a moment.

  • Now we're by no means saying everyone should immediately go out and get hyperbaric oxygen therapy for one thing.

  • This was a single study with a small sample size.

  • Something to keep in mind with this or any scientific studies that sample size or the amount of subjects in the study is extremely important.

  • 35 subjects is not a large number, which means there is possibility that these results could be wildly inaccurate.

  • The larger the sample size the more times and experiment is replicated, the better the data is, what we are saying is that something interesting?

  • Most definitely happened in the study and it could unlock the door to overcoming death by old age in the future.

  • Another word of caution, Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can be incredibly dangerous and should only be conducted by medical experts at a medical facility.

  • What can happen if you built your own hyperbaric oxygen chamber?

  • You might ask.

  • Well the chamber could explode from the pressure being too high as one man found out he was rescued but suffered from a collapsed along a woman and her grandson were also killed in florida when a faulty hyperbaric oxygen chamber burst into flames.

  • And even though these are extreme cases if the machine is not used properly, it is common for people to experience hearing loss from ruptured ear drums, vision problems and even seizures.

  • So hyperbaric oxygen therapy should only be done by medical experts.

  • But hyperbaric oxygen therapy is not the only research being conducted around slowing or reversing the aging process.

  • Scientists have been close to making breakthroughs on this frontier for years now and it's only a matter of time before they figure out how to extend human life.

  • One biotech Ceo used an experimental gene therapy on herself.

  • Elizabeth parrish underwent an anti aging gene therapy developed by her company by Aviva.

  • This was not FDA approved or conducted using the scientific method but she claims to have extended her own telomeres and reversed her age of her immune cells by 20 years.

  • The results are in question and there needs to be many more tests.

  • But this brings up a good point.

  • Science has come a long way in genetic modification especially with the development of CRISPR which allows scientists to cut any section of DNA they want and replace it with a different gene.

  • This technology has the potential to allow humans to alter their DNA and thereby control what jean someone may or may not have in the future.

  • For example, a chinese scientist named Hygiene quick edited the DNA of twin girls who were born in 2018 region.

  • Qui claims he disabled a gene called CCR five in each of the twins while they were still the embryos in their mother's uterus.

  • The gene codes for that protein that allows HIV to enter cells by editing the gene by gene Qui might have created the first genetically modified babies to be resistant to the virus that causes AIDS.

  • This was deemed unethical and the chinese government arrested.

  • He's Yanqui.

  • But the fact remains that we have the technology to modify our own genome and that very technology may allow humans to live forever.

  • In a different study, researchers from the university of California los Angeles gave nine volunteers a mix of three common drugs that affect growth hormones and diabetes.

  • On average, they found that immune cells and the volunteers bodies reversed the age by about 2.5 years.

  • This was surprising as they expected the cocktail of drugs to slow down the signs of aging but not reverse them again.

  • The researchers make it clear that more studies need to be done.

  • However, their study may suggest that the right combination of prescription drugs may be able to extend the lifespan of humans.

  • Each of these examples shows that not only are we close to stopping the aging process of our bodies but we may be close to reversing the process altogether.

  • And one final experiment has many scientists excited for what the future holds.

  • Since DNA damage is responsible for most of the symptoms of aging, it stands to reason that healthy DNA equals a healthy and long living person.

  • A recent study found that by giving plasma from young rats to older rats, the biological age of the older rats was reversed.

  • Its got scientists thinking and lead to a research around an enzyme called H.

  • D.

  • A.

  • C.

  • One scientists found that the enzyme may play a key role in repairing age related damage to DNA.

  • It's been found that H.

  • D.

  • A.

  • C.

  • One levels are much lower in people with alzheimer's and older adults.

  • In general, scientists began examining the different levels of H.

  • D.

  • A.

  • C.

  • One in mice and how lower levels correlated to more damage DNA.

  • They then injected a drug that would reactivate the production of the HD H.

  • One enzyme in the older rats and the results were astonishing.

  • The rats, given the reactivation drug, reduce their biological age by 54%.

  • Imagine being able to take medicine that would restore your body to half of its current age.

  • If this could be done indefinitely than old age would no longer be a concern for humans.

  • We're at a turning point for a species.

  • Science has made it possible to not only understand what causes aging in humans but how the process may be reversed.

  • It is very possible that within your lifetime humans will conquer the symptoms of old age and even death itself.

  • However, this may lead to a whole new set of problems.

  • As population control would become a real issue.

  • Now watch why it would suck to live through the end of the universe or check out science experiment proves after life is real.

Thank you.
