Frazzled nerves, frazzled telomeres

Telomeres

Frazzled nerves, frazzled telomeres

It starts out as a single thought and if you’re the “worrying type”, next thing you know you’ve died a thousand deaths, over something that never even happened, yet. If you’re not careful, this becomes a daily habit, deepening the groves in your brain, so you become so talented at imagining devastating scenarios, that you may start to wonder why you even get out of bed in the morning.  Extreme?  Maybe, but nothing has ever been accomplished by worrying about it and it’s BAD for your telomeres!  Normal, healthy, non-worriers focus on the present and don’t catastrophize to the nth...

Don’t act your age

Telomeres

Don’t act your age

More precisely, you don’t HAVE to act your age.  You have influence over your chronological numbers. Age is not your destiny, a life sentence etc. etc. Actually, you can change your DNA to create a healthier you. You REALLY can alter your genetic code. You are not at the mercy of your ancestral genetics, behaviorily, emotionally or physically.  In fact, your DNA double helix is not a fixed, unchanging structure, as scientists erroneously thought in the past. DNA can morph in various ways, through positive mental states and the power of intention. In a study by HeartMath, human DNA, contained...

DNA’s not destiny

Telomeres

DNA’s not destiny

  All around the world, researchers are linking telomere length to disease conditions. A lot of diseases are much more common, as you age and as your telomeres shorten.  This is not just coincidental.  Scientific data associates shorter telomeres with all of these aforementioned diseases. The take away?  Take care of your telomeres and they will take care of you! It’s not just your genetics, but your lifestyle that is an even more powerful determinant, in how you age. Don’t just accept this.  It’s easy to read up on all this stuff on the internet.  We just want you to...

Your Cells are Back in Business

Telomeres

Your Cells are Back in Business

The message is plain and simple, according to Maria Blasco, director of the Telomere and Telomerase Research Group in Madrid, ”humans born with shorter telomeres, live shorter lives.” As your DNA strands replicate, the end caps, called telomeres, get shorter with each successive cell division.  You can see where this is going!  As you age, your shortened telomeres are unable to protect your chromosomes, so your cells die and you age more rapidly.  In short, bad things happen, when telomeres are short. DNA structures become disorganized and don’t function as well Chromosomes break Chromosomes are rearranged which can lead to...

The long and short of it

Telomeres

The long and short of it

There’s a lot going on at a microscopic level, that’s more dynamic than scientists once thought.  They believed that the DNA at the ends of chromosomes were static, when in fact, in many of the organisms they studied, the end caps or telomeres, are always changing, shortening and lengthening, over and over again. As scientists investigated these fluctuating end caps, they observed a whole new paradigm and the discovery of the enzyme called telomerase, which creates a favorable environment for telomeres and in turn, positively impacts the aging of human cells. Actually, as far back as the 1930s, geneticists McClintock...
