Which looks better to you?

All watermelon contains citrulline, which has antioxidant properties and converts to arginine, an
essential amino acid that is beneficial to the heart, immune system and circulatory system.
But most of that citrulline is found in the rind.

Can We Cure Aging?

Controlling inflammation could be the key to a healthy old age.

Aging is not the simple result of the passage of time.

According to a provocative new view, it is actually
something our own bodies create, a side effect of the
essential inflammatory system that protects us against
infectious disease.

There is growing evidence that the immune system is
implicated in virtually all of these age related
illnesses, with the inflammatory response being the
triggering mechanism that leads to age-related
tissue damage.
Indeed, the term inflammaging has been coined to
describe the underlying inflammatory changes
common to most age-related diseases.

Centsible Anti-Aging
Mother Nature DOES
put all her eggs in one basket
its called a seed!


We eat living food, wherein chewing and enzymes break down nutrients into amino
acids, simple sugars and oils which are absorbable and bioavailable.
Out of these foods, DNA and RNA particles are made bio-available.
Whole, crushed, cold-pressed, organic, non-GMP seed oils deliver the bioavailable
DNA, RNA fragments and serve as a transport mechanism.
These RNA nutrient messages tell the DNA in every cell what to do, how to adapt
and what to express genetically.
This allows your genes to be optimized and refurbished buffed up.
The food richest in genetic spare parts is

the SEED !

3.Inflammation underlies all major degenerative diseases.
4.Cardiovascular inflammation leads to calcification / blockage.

Inflammation seems to underlie not just senescence but all the

chronic illnesses that often come along with it: diabetes,
atherosclerosis, Alzheimers, heart attack.
Inflammatory factors predict virtually all bad outcomes in
humans. It predicts having heart attacks, having heart failure,
becoming diabetic; predicts becoming fragile in old age; predicts
cognitive function decline, even cancer to a certain extent.
Russell Tracy, a professor University of Vermont College of Medicine.

The idea that chronic diseases might be

caused by persistent inflammation
has been kicking around since the 19th century.
Only in the past few years, though, have modern biochemistry and
the emerging field of systems biology made it possible to grasp the
convoluted chemical interactions involved in body-wide responses
like inflammation.

Inflammation and Alzheimer's disease

Akiyama H, Barger S, Neurobiol Aging. 2000 May-Jun;21(3):383-421.

Inflammation clearly occurs in pathologically vulnerable regions of the Alzheimer's

disease (AD) brain, and it does so with the full complexity of local peripheral
inflammatory responses. In the periphery, degenerating tissue and the deposition of
highly insoluble abnormal materials are classical stimulants of inflammation.
By better understanding AD inflammatory and immuno-regulatory processes, it should be
possible to develop anti-inflammatory

approaches that may not cure

AD but will likely help slow the progression or delay the onset
of this devastating disorder.

Schizophrenia as an inflammation-mediated dysbalance

of glutamatergic neurotransmission.

The only endogenous NMDA receptor antagonist identified up to now is kynurenic acid
(KYNA). Despite the NMDA receptor antagonism, KYNA also blocks, in lower doses, the
nicotinergic acetycholine receptor, i.e., increased KYNA levels can explain psychotic
symptoms and cognitive deterioration. KYNA levels are described to be higher in the
cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and in critical central nervous system (CNS) regions of
schizophrenics as compared to controlsTherapeutic consequences, e.g., the use of

anti-inflammatory cyclo-oxygenase-2 inhibitors, which can also

decrease KYNA directly, are discussed.

So Depression is an Inflammatory Disease, but

where does the inflammation come from?
We now know that depression is associated with a chronic, low-grade
inflammatory response and activation of cell-mediated immunity, as well as
activation of the compensatory anti-inflammatory reflex system.
The identification of known sources of inflammation provides support for
inflammation as a mediating pathway to both risk and neuroprogression in
depressionMost, but not all, of the above mentioned sources of

inflammation may play a role in other psychiatric disorders,

such as 1) bipolar disorder, 2) schizophrenia, 3) autism and
4) post-traumatic stress disorder.

The problem is, when we treat cancer cells

with chemotherapy, the cancer stem cells are
being stimulated to grow too.
When we take mesenchymal stem cells and
mix them with tumor cells, the tumors grow
much more quickly in animals.

What is a Tumor?
A tumor, benign or malignant, is a proliferation
of cells of which, in the case of a malignant
cancer, less than 1% of which are dangerous.

Alternative Health Advocates 2015 -

The problem is 0.1% of the Tumor!

99.1% - 99.6% of the tumor cells are NOT
dangerous (aside from steric, obstructive factors).

Similarly, usually less than 1% of

primary tumor cells cultured in vitro can
give rise to colonies.

What metastasizes?

Cancer STEM cells!

tumor cells are heterogeneous in their capacity to give rise
to tumors upon transplantation or to form colonies in culture
assays. For in vivo tumor transplantation, this is reflected in the
large numbers of tumor cells that must usually be transplanted to
form a tumor. For primary human and mouse tumors, this
number often resides in the thousands or millions. (ibid Diehn et al)

Alternative Health Advocates 2015 -

Only cancer STEM cells metastasize!

Considerable evidence suggests that tumors contain
only a minority of cells which are capable of
regrowing the tumor (ie. tumor stem cells). Since all
tumor stem cells must be killed if treatment is to be
successful, the number of stem cells in a tumor can be
expected to be an important determinant of curability.

Cancer STEM cells are resistant to chemotherapy

The apparent similarities between normal stem cells and CSC
led to the hypothesis that CSC may be relatively resistant to
common chemotherapeutic agents compared to their more
differentiated non-tumorigenic counterparts and that
improvements in patient outcomes might be achieved by directly
targeting CSC. Mounting evidence suggests that this is the case.
Recent studies have shown that cancer stem cell-like cells
present in some established cell lines and in long-term
xenografts appear to be relatively resistant to cytotoxic
chemotherapeutics. (ibid Diehn et al)

Alternative Health Advocates 2015 -

and Cancer Stem Cells are

resistant to Radiation Therapy also
Thus, CSC in some tumors appear to be resistant to
cytotoxic chemotherapies. As is discussed elsewhere in
this issue, CSC in some tumors also appear to be
resistant to radiotherapy. These findings suggest the
overcoming CSC resistance mechanisms to cytotoxic
therapies may result in higher cure rates. (ibid Diehn et al)

Since it remains to be determined how representative

Thymoquinone: potential cure for inflammatory disorders and cancer.

Abstract Source:Biochem Pharmacol. 2012 Feb 15 ;83(4):443-51. Epub 2011 Oct 10. PMID: 22005518 Abstract Author(s):Chern Chiuh Woo

Thymoquinone is an active ingredient isolated from Nigella sativa and has been investigated for its anti-

anti-inflammatory and anticancer

activities in both in vitro and in vivo models since its first extraction in 1960s.

Its anti-oxidant/anti-inflammatory effect has been reported in various disease models, including
encephalomyelitis, diabetes, asthma and carcinogenesis.
The anticancer effect(s) of thymoquinone are mediated through different modes of action,
including anti-proliferation, apoptosis induction, cell cycle arrest, ROS generation and anti-

activity through the modulation of multiple molecular targets,
including p53, p73, PTEN, STAT3, PPAR-1, activation of caspases and
metastasis/anti-angiogenesis. In addition, this quinone was found to exhibit

generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS).

Abstract Source:Biochem Pharmacol. 2012 Feb 15 ;83(4):443-51. Epub 2011 Oct 10. PMID: 22005518 Abstract Author(s):Chern Chiuh Woo

The anti-tumor effects of thymoquinone have also been investigated in tumor xenograft mice models
for colon, prostate, pancreatic and lung cancer.

The combination of thymoquinone and conventional

chemotherapeutic drugs could produce greater therapeutic
effect as well as reduce the toxicity of the latter.
In this review, we summarize the anti-oxidant/anti-inflammatory and anticancer effects of
thymoquinone with a focus on its molecular targets, and its possible role in the treatment of
inflammatory diseases and cancer.

Precautions to Slow Down Oxidation of Seed Oils

Air, heat and light speed up oxidation. Here are some tips for slowing it down.
Buy oil bottles from the back of the market shelves where it's darker.
Choose oils packed in tinted glass containers, or wrap clear bottles in foil.
Check expiration dates carefully. Since most shelf-stable trans fats have been
replaced with healthier but more oxidation-prone fats, don't expect processed foods
to last as long as they used to.
Stop eating deep-fried foods and don't reuse spent cooking oil.
Store cooking oil, whole-grain flours and nuts in dry, cool, dark places.
Choose oils packed in tinted glass containers, or wrap clear bottles in foil.
Re-cap oils right after pouring and refrigerate
Stop eating deep-fried foods and don't reuse spent cooking oil.
BEST to buy organic non-GMO, whole, raw unsalted seeds nuts (naturally rich in oils)
Then freeze them and grind a portion of frozen seed/nut every day!
