Healthcare and the aging issue ...

The following post is a response to a comment yesterday made by Alfred...

I would like to see a real HEALTH care system to create health and wellness, the older people need supplements NOT drugs all the time.

Read about Dr. Keller and his findings with
Glutathion ...

I like it very much !

As we age, we tend to be faced with more sick care issues. Of course, these issues require us to go in to the healthcare system .... or do they? What if we could do something about the whole aging process? I mean ... do something to slow that process down!

There is a little known, naturally occurring antioxidant called glutathione, in the body. It plays a major role in how our bodies age. The only kicker is that as we age our levels of this terrific antioxidant begin to decrease.

Glutathione is highly active in the human lungs as well as many other organ systems and tissues. It has many reported uses and it plays a critical role in protecting cells from oxidative stress and maintaining our immune systems. Higher blood levels of glutathione have been associated with better health in elderly people, but the exact association between glutathione and the aging process has not been determined.
Glutathione has many uses:
  • treatment of heavy metal poisons
  • treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
  • treating Parkinson's disease
  • lowering the blood pressure in diabetic patients
  • increasing male sperm counts in humans and animals
  • liver cancer treatment
  • treatment of sickle cell anemia
Many say that glutathione will increase energy, improve concentration, slow aging, and protect the skin.
One of the foremost researchers on the subject of Glutathione and anti-aging is Dr. Robert Keller

Robert H. Keller, MD, MS, FACP

Dr. Keller has served on the scientific review panels for the National Institutes of Health and the VA. The Consumers’ Research Council has named him one of America’s Top Physicians in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007 in the fields of Internal Medicine, Immunology and Hematology. Dr. Keller has served on the faculties of the Mayo Graduate School of Medicine, the University of Wisconsin and the Medical College of Wisconsin (Marquette Univ.) He has published more than 100 original articles in various scientific and medical journals and has been awarded several patents. Dr. Keller was elected to The Board of Governors of the American Academy of HIV Medicine.

I will be attending the 17th Annual Congress of Anti-Aging next week in Orlando, Florida and I am looking forward to meeting Dr. Keller. Hopefully I will be able to get a short interview with him to share!

OK, so what will it be for you? Health care, sick care ... or do YOU really care?
