The Originality of this Training
This Master class addresses cancer & other chronic diseases from the longevity and bio-terrain angle with the best available Science and healing practices we know of. By addressing the tumor (s) microenvironment as well as the person’s bioterrain holistically and with Optimal Longevity medicine, the body will more often than not resolve the cancer as well as many of the other degenerative challenges the patient may be suffering from. Furthermore, as a bonus for activating the longevity pathways, the Master Class attendee enriches his or her bioterrain with what is needed to live a long healthy lifespan of 120 years old.
The following evidence-based 32 Lessons are based on the latest research in cancer-free longevity science. Each Lesson lasts around two hours. Topic Analysis, Clinical Pearls, Holistic Tips and a Q & A session follow each Lesson. At the end of the training, a certificiation exam will finalize this Master Class.
Each Lesson will be preceded with a longevity enhancement type of Meditation exercise
Lesson 1: The Magic of Meditation: From Genomic Expression to Joie de Vivre (JDV) Consciousness Activation
“I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness” Max Planck (leading expert in quantic physics, Nobel laureate)
Researchers at the University of California were the first to show that meditators have significantly higher telomerase activity than non-meditators. (Source) Furthermore, the regular practice of specific types of Meditations we teach all Workshop attendees will simultaneously signal longevity genes to activate telomerase enzyme gene and many other biological processes to sharpen both intuition and focus. As a bonus, intellectual assimilation of the content of this Certification program will be enhanced. We will therefore begin and end each 2 hours training Lesson with short guided Meditation practices.
We will prove all of the Institute’s claims with a preponderance of the hard evidence during the power point presentations.
Introduction to Cancer-free Holistic Rejuvenation Medicine
“The field of ageing research has been completely transformed in the past decade. . . . When single genes are changed, animals that should be old stay young. In humans, these mutants would be analogous to a ninety year old who looks and feels forty-five. On this basis we begin to think of ageing as a disease that can be cured, or at least postponed. . . . The field of ageing is beginning to explode, because so many are so excited about the prospect of searching for – and finding – the causes of ageing, and maybe even the fountain of youth itself”. (Guarente and Kenyon, Nature, 2000)
For millennia, the aging process has been considered to be uncontrollable, even when the average lifespan did not surpass 40 years, which was just a little over 100 years ago. That changed with Professor Elizabeth Blackburn’s discovery of the telomerase gene. (Source) Furthermore, in the early nineties, research on C. elegans, (a tiny nematode worm) confirmed that a single gene mutation extended its life, and that another mutation blocked that extension. (Source)
The idea that age could be tweaked by twiddling a few control genetic switches ignited a research and investment boom. As more geroscientists and biogerontologists got better motivated to attempt to break and hack the Longevity Code, new findings started to reveal key biological clocks that epigenically switched on and off longevity genes. (See Exhibit C)
In this perspective, various clinical interventions did increase the worm’s lifespan by a factor of ten and those of lab mice by a factor of two. (Source) Thereafter, telomeres of skin cells were tweaked to lengthen the new unprecedented levels, thanks to a new Lab procedure fine-tuned by Stanford university School of Medicine scientists. These cells were able to divide up to 40 more times more than untreated cells, which means that human somatic cells have been empirically shown to surpass the Hayflick limit and potentially extend their lifespan 40 times more than before. “Skin cells with telomeres lengthened by the procedure were able to divide up to 40 more times than untreated cells”. (Source)
This means that we now have some limited evidence that we may have in us the regenerative potential to live 40 times more than the Hayflick limit. The Havflick limit is in between 50 to 70 cellular divisions, before the cell either dies or transitions into a senescent cell. Seventy divisions is roughly 120 years. 40 times 120 = 4800 years.
The scientific consensus that human lifespan potential was a little after 100 years old thus transformed. The perception of the Aging process went from a few decades of endless struggling to survive to a Darwinian reproduction of the human species (Cf Time cover from 1958: “Growing Old Usefully”), followed by a social issue (Time, 1970: “Growing Old in America: The Unwanted Generation”) to this “je ne sais quoi” phenomenon (1996: “Forever Young”) that could defer death to 142 years for starts (Cf 2015: Time “This Baby Could Live to Be 142 Years Old”).
However, because in Life, there are many howevers, the excitement was not long lasting. Successfully tweaking genes in a Petri dish does not necessarily translate into in vivo genetic expressions of supercentenarian lifespan. It was soon discovered that the telomerase enzyme gene was not the central longevity engine anti-aging experts had hoped for. The Longevity Code cook-book is far more complex for mammals and even more so for humans than for a C. Elegans worm, fly, mouse, naked mole or even the bat (who has an exceptionally long lifespan).
Hence, the Institute’s director, Pr. Joubert, prefers to focus on the known fundamentals that work to at least 122 years of age while simultaneously exploring the best of bio-tech longevity engineering stratagems, many of which are still in the early phases of clinical trials and concomitant marketing schemes.
As we will see, there are many dozens of ongoing drugs and supplements that are already being used in today’s anti-aging and baby-boomer communities, from telomerase activators and senescent cell removal, (senolytics) to autophagy inducers, caloric restriction mimickers, blood donor plasma transfer, nano-robots, mTOR drugs like rapamycin, gene editing, stem cell cyro-preservation, NAD enhancers, sirtuin-activating molecules, insulin-modulating drugs like metformin and more.
Most of these molecules and products are still under investigation in different clinical trials. Many have not even been tested in terms of drug-supplement-food interactions. Not only it can take many years for many of these anti-aging human trials to be completed, but once on the market, many of these anti-aging products will be too expensive for the general public and many of these products are not immune from deleterious side effects. As a consequence, risks may outweigh benefits, especially for people who are relatively healthy and are just seeking to add 30 or 40 extra healthy years to their lifespan.
Thus, waiting a few years before some of these bio-tech longevity hacks may be accessible and proven safe and effective is not cellularly or financially responsible, if only because today we have the knowledge that key holistic tools can significantly help to rejuvenate, repair and restore most metabolically impaired tissues to way over 100 years. Furthermore, Holistic and Happiness medicine can also meaningfully help to offset and significantly delay Evolution’s programmed aging process. In effect, by addressing cancer cells holistically with the ACR Institute’s discoveries and techniques, we can also clear senescent, ectopic endometrial and other degenerative cells and debris that hinder healthy supercentenarian lifespans.

Top: The French Mediterranean dancer, Madame Jeanne Calment, a Piscean born on February 21, 1875, is still the Optimal Longevity Champion, notwithstanding some evidentiary controversies. Having reached 122.5 years, according to her claims, she “allowed” herself to die. In other words, she could have continued to live. Her age was confirmed via birth certificate and the Guiness Record scientist-investigators, in conjunction with university experts, confirmed this fact as well as many other facts that proved beyond any reasonable doubt that human beings were capable of reaching 122 years of Life without major chronic diseases and without any drugs or supplements. In this picture, she was 120.
Lesson 3. The Biology of Aging: Understanding the Mechanisms that Spur Accelerated & Delayed Aging
“Medicine is not only a science; it is also an art. It does not consist of compounding pills and plasters; it deals with the very processes of life, which must be understood before they may be guided.” Paracelsus

Different Theories of Biological Aging
Cancer cells & Supercentenarians: Common threads
Top: A young infant girl who suffers from Proregia syndrome. She is only around 2 years old, but appears much more. Also known as Hutchinson-Gilford syndrome, this disease is genetic. It is characterized by accelerated aging that is accompanied with the age-related diseases. The mean age at death of these patients is 12.5 years. These children die “old” before 15 or 20, at which point they look like 80 years old.

What are the genetic variants or determinants that account for extreme longevity in humans ? Do these variants prevail over Lifestyle and the environment ?
“Centenarians are the best example of extreme human longevity, and they represent a selected population in which the appearance of major age-related diseases, such as cancer, and cardiovascular diseases among others, has been consistently delayed or escaped. The study of the long-lived individual genetic profile has the purpose to possibly identify the genes and the allelic variations influencing extended life expectancy, hence considering them as biomarkers of age-related diseases onset and development. The present study shows no significant differences between allelic variations of ABO blood groups among a group of centenarians from Western Sicily”.

Lesson 5: Holistic Cardiology in a Nutshell.
“Keep a quiet heart, Sit like a tortoise, Walk sprightly like a pigeon, Sleep like a dog” (Longevity advise from Li Ching-Yuen. Li was a mountain herbalist & a wine enthusiast who seemingly lived to 197 years).
Healthy extended lifespans need healthy epithelium. If the lining of the vessel walls are not healthy, all of the other tissues are affected. Blood flow is key and both holistic and nutritional medicine focus on this priority by prescribing daily servings of nitric oxide promoting dark green veggies. (Source) When the epitehlium is damaged, Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) abound. CVDs in the US constitute both the First cause of premature death and the easiest epidemic to fixed holistically. If holistic and happiness medicine were the standards of care, conventional cardiology would go bankrupt within days, thanks to which millions of Americans would avoid CVDs and get closer to acheive their 120 years potential.
In this Lesson, we will examine the hard evidence that shows that most of conventional cardiology is both outdated and laden with deleterious consequences that hinder the People’s birthright to live a healthy lifespan to 120 years. Concomitantly, we will prove via published power point studies that integrative and holistic cardiology are clinically safer, more effective and cost-friendlier.

Lesson 6: Detoxification, Fasting & Cleansing for Optimal Longevity
“There were never so many able, active minds at work on the problems of disease as now, and all their discoveries are tending toward the simple truth that you can’t improve on nature.” (Thomas Edison, 1902)
In Conventional medicine, the Government’s N.I.H experts claim that “…there isn’t any convincing evidence that detox or cleansing programs actually remove toxins from your body or improve your health. Weight loss on a detox diet may be because these diets are often very low in calories” (Source) while independent but conventional scientists in peer-reviewed studies will outrightly debunk detoxification techniques as being useful for disease reversal and longevity. On the other hand, experts in the integrative-functional-holistic fields validate detoxification’s powerful impact on healing. After assessing the pros and cons of holistic and metabolic detoxification, the Happiness Medicine Institute has determined that detoxification in general is overwhelmingly supported by the evidence and constitutes a powerful rejuvenation technique, notwithstand a few isolated and unsupported cash-flow motivated claims in the alternative health field.
In this Lesson, we will thus compare the arguments and facts with regard to the pros and the cons of different detox techniques and then make a reasonable determination as to where the preponderance of the evidence lies regarding some of the more popular detoxificataion claims that are invoked in the integrative and holistic fields: in particular: anemas, colonics, saunas, ionic foot baths, detox supplements (clays, ALA, Nac, milk thistle etc), diet, fasting, sweating, exercises and more.

Lesson 7: Quality, Traditional & Moderate Wine intake extends Healthy Lifespans
“Stop drinking only water, and use a little wine because of your stomach and your frequent illnesses.” 1 Timothy 5:23
The evidence the Presentation will share suggests that early death and multiple chronic diseases appear to be either partially or primarily the result of abstaining from this “essential nutrient” we call wine. But only if the dosage is “small to moderate”.
As Paracelsus said over two thousands years ago, “wine is a medicine, a food or a poison depending on the dosage”, to which we can add quality, pairing and timing. Too much wine will obviously harm the liver, the brain and other organs, but in the right proportion and context, wine can be a good medicine, just like essential oils, sunlight, exercises, heat, botanicals, caloric restriction, food, sound and the like. But for wine to be great medicine, it must be sipped holistically and its grapes and vinification should be prepared traditionally, (for that extra resveratrol boost) and without chemicals. Today, in the United States, the FDA allows Americans to drink wine that can have up to 76 additives, including but not limited to arsenic, lead and glyphosate. (Source) And because the US government does not require labeling, the wine consumer should ascertain that the wine is organic and traditionally made.
In this Lesson, we will examine a few diseases that quality wine can help to both control and reverse as well as its impact on longevity.
“Wine is a traditional beverage that has been associated with both healthy and harmful effects. Conceptions like the so-called “French paradox” or the beneficial impact of the Mediterranean diet suggest benefit. (…) there is reasonable unanimity in beneficial effects of moderate wine consumption in cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, maybe neurological diseases, and longevity”. (Source)

Lesson 8:The Endocannabinoid System, Homeostasis & Longevity
“It’s not because we are old that we don’t play, it’s because we don’t play that we get old” (George Bernard Shaw)
“It’s not because we are old that we don’t play, it’s because we don’t play that we get old” (George Bernard Shaw)
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a newly discovered biological system composed of endocannabinoids, which are endogenous lipid-based retrograde neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors, and cannabinoid receptor proteins that are expressed throughout the mammalian central nervous system (including the brain) and peripheral nervous system. The endocannabinoid system is also involved in regulating a variety of physiological and cognitive processes including but not limited to general homeostasis and brain rejuvenation (neurogenesis). Likewise with cancer and over one hundred heath disorders.
“…cannabinoids may inhibit tumor growth by causing cell death, blocking cell growth, and blocking the development of blood vessels needed by tumors to grow. Laboratory and animal studies have shown that cannabinoids may be able to kill cancer cells while protecting normal cells”. (From the Federal Government’s National Cancer Institute) Source
In this Lesson , after a brief review of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and one of its diseases officially called clinical cannabinoid deficiency disorder (CECD), we will look at a recent finding regarding cannabiniods’ role in optimal longevity. In this perspective researchers in 2017 confirmed that cannabinoids may be a forgotten essential nutrient, in particular for the elderly. Because levels of natural cannabinoids in the ECS decline with aging, these researchers focused on the correlation between cannabinoids and memory and provided convincing evidence that the lack of cannabinoids is a proximate cause of the loss of memory function in later life. Medical marijuana has also been shown to be beneficial for the elderly regarding pain management. (Source) We will also show that it is possible to stave off cognitive decline by using low doses of tetrahydrocannabinol to supplement endogenous cannabinoids. Likewise with Cannabis’ benefit effect with mitigating the United State’s hard alcohol and prescription opiate epidemics. Cannabinoids from different plants will also be reviewed in terms of their contribution to healthy lifespans, including, but not limited to different varieties of exotic peppers that also contain healing cannabinoids.

Lesson 9: Research Methodology with regard to the Health Sciences
“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.” (Lancet Journal)
Medicine is a field of knowledge that is fraught with unreliability, contradictions, incompetence, careerism, conflicts of interests, fraud and change. Its published research findings are often refuted by subsequent evidence. Refutation and controversy is seen across the range of biomedical research designs, from clinical trials and traditional epidemiological studies to the most modern molecular research. Furthermore, much of biomedical research isn’t even reproducible. And there is increasing concern that in modern conventional biomedical research, false findings may be the norm. Integrative medicine is better, but also has it’s flaws.
“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine” (“Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime Editor in Chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ), which is considered to another one of the most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals in the world). (Source)

Lesson 10: Medical Law
“It’s not because we are old that we don’t play, it’s because we don’t play that we get old” (George Bernard Shaw)
One of key notions in medicine is the “standard of care”. We think of the “standard-of-care” as the definition of proper scientifically based care that a patient receives from the medical establishment. However, this representation is misleading. Standards of care in the US are based less on robust Science than on what the “Medical Community” thinks is Science.
In this Lesson, we will also share power point information for the benefit of alternative health-care providers on liabilities as well as on legal protection techniques that can be implemented in order to avoid legal pitfalls and thrive as best as possible under the present circumstances. In addition, key arguments that can be invoked in a Court of law when arbitrary legal attacks hit (from Medical Boards, FDA, FTC, frivolous patients, et al) will follow as well as a brief discussion of Patients’ Fundamental Health Rights and Doctors’ Duties.

Lesson 11: The French Approach to Holistic Health & Optimal Longevity
“The fixity of the milieu supposes a perfection of the organism such that the external variations are at each instant compensated for and equilibrated. Therefore, far from being indifferent to the external world, the higher animal is on the contrary constrained in a close and responsive relation with it, of such fashion that its equilibrium results from a continuous and delicate compensation established as if by the most sensitive of balances.” (Professeur Claude Bernard)
In France, much of medicine reflects the culture of the “le juste milieu”, the Goldylock “right balance”. As a consequence, half of French medical doctors practice homeopathy while the vast majority of them will prescribe lifestyle “joie de vivre” medicine, whether it be via the famous three weeks (per year) Government paid health spa vacation in one of France’s sunny resorts and-or other modality, some of which include thermal therapy, wine medicine, leisure, homeopathy and multiple destressing techniques like sophrology, aromatherapy, phytotherapy, or, among other integrative and holistic techniques, healthy flavorful and uplifting food, spices and herbs, what is officially called clinical nutritional medicine, all in the “right balance” within a rich bio-diversity “entourage” and enjoyable milieu.
“Instead they offer a holistic approach to alleviating chronic conditions such as arthritis and multiple sclerosis. As well as bathing, curistes drink 10 tiny glasses a day of the mineral rich water. To me, the water tasted rather salty. One man I spoke to said it kept him awake at night. But most feel it helps, as do the massage, gymnastics and lessons in cooking healthy food that are also on offer. Between now and October, thousands of curistes – drawn mostly from France’s retired population – will spend up to three weeks floating and gossiping in the hot pools. The spas are set in beautiful gardens and staffed by doctors, physiotherapists and dieticians… all of which comes at a hefty price. Most can only afford it because the bill is footed by the State. (…) (Source)
In this Lesson, we will define the hippocratic-based French approach to medicine, food and public health and briefly show a few of its strengths, some of which could benefit the American health-care system.

Lesson 12: Hands-On Practical Tips: Culinary Remedies, Longevity Smoothies, Essential Oils, Wine Demonstration and more
“Wine can be a poison, a food or a medicine depending on the dosage” Paracelsus
In this Kitchen Demonstration, we will demonstrate how to optimize certain foods (using plants, herbs, flowers, roots, essential oils, mushrooms and the like) via the making of a longevity dish (Smoothie, soup or the like) that comes from either the Mediterranean Diet, the Vegan Diet and-or the Rawfood Whole-Plant diet. Concomitantly, we will demonstrate how wine is used medicinally
After lunch, we will teach hands-on exercises to optimally breath, move, meditate, see and activate key energy fields, including via acu-pressure, EFT, reflexology, aromatherapy, sophrology and more. If time allows, we will also delve into evaluation techniques like muscle testing (kinesiology), Chinese nail and tongue testing, stool & urine analysis, psycho-morphology and facial diagnosis, metabolic body types assessment, ear lobe examination (that can help to predict coronary crises), alternate nostril breathing, HRV support and other holistic tools like organoleptic testing that can assist us in pinpointing warning signs, some of which can be as useful as genetic and biochemical tests.
Lesson 13: Bio-Physics, Photons, Helio-therapy & inter-cellular Communication, Electro-acupuncture & TCM
“We are still on the threshold of fully understanding the complex relationship between light and life, but we can now say emphatically, that the function of our entire metabolism is dependent on light.” Dr. Fritz Albert Popp
As the mitochondria’s integrity erodes with time and entropy, there tends to be a cellular upheavel in the production of ATP, ROS and over-all inter-cellular communication. One of the consequences of this process is sarcopenia, the loss of muscles and bone density, a condition that leads femoral and hip fractures among the elderly. Is this condition the result of a natural old age process or the result of impaired thinking ? Can Sun therapy (in Europe, this medicine is called “heliotherapy”, from the Greek “helio”, which means Sun), acupuncture, bio-photons, bio-electricity and a holistic lifestyle help to overcome sarcopenia, bone loss, brain atrophy and accelerated aging ?
“Biophotons may represent a complex cell-to-cell communication that relies upon speed of light transmission. The physics of light seems to fit the biological observations. Light is the most efficient and fastest mediator of information in the world. The coherent property of biophotons may have a profound effect on their ability to influence information transfer. Frequency coding gives light a capability of encoding information from DNA in biophotons. (Source)
While biophysics and longevity research is still nascent and unsettled, we already have emerging evidence that bio-electricity and photons may have an important role in health and longevity including on inter-cellular communication and the mitochondria, whose degradation is one of the aging hallmarks we have examined.
“In recent years, a growing body of evidence shows that photons play an important role in the basic functioning of cells. Most of this evidence comes from turning the lights off and counting the number of photons that cells produce. It turns out, much to many people’s surprise, that many cells, perhaps even most, emit light as they work. In fact, it looks very much as if many cells use light to communicate. There’s certainly evidence that bacteria, plants and even kidney cells communicate in this way”. (From M.I.T. Source)
In this Lesson, we will show what the evidence suggests with regard to the role of photons on the mitochondria and inter-cellular communication. Bio-electricity and particle-wave medicine, from electro-acupunture to Pemf, low dose radiation, TENS, Sound frequencies and more all appear to favorably mitigate chronic diseases and modulate longevity pathways.

Lesson 14: Dental Holistic Care
“Most chronic diseases have a dental connection” Dr Huggins
Because the present conventional dentistry standards of care are connected to chronic diseases and accelerated aging, this Lesson will review some of the key holistic measures that can avoid toxic dentistry, including healing early-mid cavity decay with holistic savoir-faire techniques, detoxing via oil pulling, home-made essential oil mouthwash, safe mercury-amalgam removal protocols, biocompatible dental material, avoiding endocrine disrupting leaching chemicals like BPA from different dental components (e.g., BPA sealants, if only because it has been shown that BPA can lead to autoimmune diseases), using ozone, lasers that can replace the “drill & fill” technique and more. Implants with one’s own dental stem cells is already operational.
Given the US’s peridontal infection epidemic (over 65 percent of teeth loss is due to gum disease and over 90 percent of Americans have some form of gum disease) as well as the toxic heavy metal poisoning pandemic (including, but not limited to mercury and industrial fluoride), the root canal aberration (i.e. leaving a dead tooth in the body is medically insane), avoidable cavitations, galvo-currents and more, biological and holistic dentistry is a necessary tool to consider if the attendee is serious about optimizing a healthy lifespans to 120 year and beyond. Likewise with new technologies like laser and 3 D cone beam scans that can detect serious infections and tooth abcesses that digital scans and x-rays miss. This Lesson will included case studies of cancer and cardiac cases being resolved once dental problems were holistically fixed.

Lesson 15: The Reversal of Alzheimer’s Disease & Depression with Holistic Savoir-Faire & Exercises
“In investigating nature you will do well to bear ever in mind that in every question there is the truth, whatever our notions may be. This seems, perhaps, a very simple consideration, yet it is strange how often it seems to be disregarded. I remember at an early period of my own life showing to a man of high reputation as a teacher some matters which I happened to have observed. And I was very much struck and grieved to find that, while all the facts lay equally clear before him, those only which squared with his previous theories seemed to affect his organs of vision.” (Lister)
It remains impossible to achieve a healthy 120 years, when serious mental and neurological disorders like Azheimer’s Disease (AD), Parkinson, Depression or M.S. hit. In the U.S., Alzheimer’s Disease incidence will triple to what it is today. In England, where holistic lifestyle has not been well rooted, AD has replaced both cancer and CVD as the number one killer and the US is not far behind, at least for the elderly. For those with the APOE 4 gene, the risk factors are higher and strike earlier.
Conventional Medicine neurological experts, just like in the cancer, cardiovascular and most other chronic disease fields, have postulated that the major culprit is a symptom or group of symptoms that drives the disease. In this case, the central hallmark of AD. has been conventionally determined to be the beta amyloid plaque, a form of misfolded proteins. After over 30 years and billions of dollars testing drugs in clinical trials, not one of these anti amyloidal drugs made a difference in terms of safely and efficiently treating this disease. (The amyloid plaque did shrink with some of these drugs but from the viewpoint of even delaying the Alzheimer’s process, these lab molecules failed. And they will continue to fail because their approach is symptomatic).
In this Lesson, we will show via documened power point that holistic scientists and neurologists have convincingly proven that amyloid plaque is a mere symptom, not the cause of Alzheimer’s Disease, just like high blood pressure is an adaptive and compensatory symptom of being in a very high altitude area. Furthermore, we can demonstreate that the amyloid plaque, just like the arterial and dental plaques, is a defense mechanism against other deeper causes that conventional medicine misses or refuses to investigate. For over twenty years now, we have known that the so called “Alzheimer Disease hallmark”, the amyloidal plaques as the driver of the disease, is a dogma. Below, a 2004 piece from a group of scientists who are not fooled by conventional medicine’s approach.
“Ever since their initial description over a century ago, senile plaques and their major protein component, amyloid-beta, have been considered key contributors to the pathogenesis of Alzheimer disease. However, counter to the popular view that amyloid-beta represents an initiator of disease pathogenesis, we herein challenge dogma and propose that amyloid-beta occurs secondary to neuronal stress and, rather than causing cell death, functions as a protective adaptation to the disease….”. By analogy, individuals suffering from altitude sickness nearly always have elevated levels of hemoglobin. However, while hemoglobin is toxic to cells in culture and increased erythropoiesis at sea level can be deadly, it is clear that the increases in hemoglobin occurring at altitude are beneficial. Amyloid, like hemoglobin, may also be beneficial, in this case, following neuronal stress or disease. Although controversial, a protective function for amyloid-beta is supported by all of the available literature to date and also explains why many aged individuals, despite the presence of high numbers of senile plaques, show little or no cognitive decline. With this in mind, we suspect that current therapeutic efforts targeted toward lowering amyloid-beta production or removal of deposited amyloid-beta will only serve to exacerbate the disease process.

Lesson 16: The Microbiota Revolution in Medicine & how Microbiome Medicine Optimizes Longevity
“The human body contains trillions of microorganisms — outnumbering human cells by 10 to 1. Because of their small size, however, microorganisms make up only about 1 to 3 percent of the body’s mass (in a 200-pound adult, that’s 2 to 6 pounds of bacteria), but play a vital role in human health (…) Researchers now calculate that more than 10,000 microbial species occupy the human ecosystem. Moreover, researchers calculate that they have identified between 81 and 99 percent of all microorganismal genera in healthy adults (….) HMP researchers also reported that this plethora of microbes contribute more genes responsible for human survival than humans contribute. Where the human genome carries some 22,000 protein-coding genes, researchers estimate that the human microbiome contributes some 8 million unique protein-coding genes or 360 times more bacterial genes than human genes. This bacterial genomic contribution is critical for human survival. Genes carried by bacteria in the gastro-intestinal tract, for example, allow humans to digest foods and absorb nutrients that otherwise would be unavailable. (Source)
Since 2012 when the Journal Nature published the Human Microbiome Project’s (HMP) results, the very face of medicine has changed. With 8 million Microbiota genes that cross talk with our 22,000 (or 23K) human eukaryotic genes, we better understand the Microbiota’s pivotal role with regard to physiology, diseases and longevity, all thanks to our inner Garden’s critters made from bacteria, virus, fungi, archaea and, inter alia, their genes. Some experts even claim that the microbiota is housed with 20 million interactive genes, thanks to which multiple proteins and biochemical processes are produced. These gut critters will send off bio-chemical, electro-magnetic and photonic signals to get the human host to eat what the microbiotat species need. Hence, the importance of limiting the deleterious bacteria that can get its host to eat itself to early death. As we will see, the experts are saying that up to 60 percent of human’s food choices are made in the gut. Most addiction strategies are therefore useless without a holistic approach that addresses this aspect of medicine. Likewise with the role of bacteria in detoxifying cancer cells from the poisons of cytotoxic chemotherapy.
These discoveries on the microbiota have been shown to be useful for the control and reversal of not only Alzheimer’s disease, but for auto-immune diseases, diabetes, cardiovascular issues, cancer and more. The evidence confirms that both the microbiota and the microbiome impact the expression of our entire genetic Code in multiple ways. In addition, the microbiota makes many of our key nutrients and molecules, from the vitamins K and B6, to neuropeptides like serotonin and dopamine that affects our neurochemistry, to short chain fatty acids, to the protection of the gut lining, the promotion of signaling molecules, the downregulation of inflammation and more.
In this Lesson, we will look at a few of these discoveries that are slowly redefining medicine. Which means that eventually, we will need to compost most medical school textbooks. Meanwhile, it is important to be mindful of the fact that holistic lifestype and gut-enhancement diets are key. We will show studies that prove that certain probiotics, prebiotics and superfoods favor key gut bacteria that inhabit healthy centenarians, most of whom harbor a microbiota as rich and diverse as those of thirty years old.

Video Excerpt on a 2016 Optimal Longevity Medicine Lecture from Pr. Joubert
“The art of medicine consists in amusing the patient while Nature cures the disease.” Voltaire. One of 18th century Voltaire’s lessons to heal and be happy is to “cultivate one’s garden” (cf in his book Condide), that which can be translated to mean the cultivation of the low-key attitude of being joyfully humble and humbly joyful with an uplifting sense of purpose, awe and gratitude holistically expressed in the “now and here”, what is called “la joie de vivre”.
