Day 2 Prolon (Valter Longo's Fasting Mimicking Diet)

Prevmed

This is a YouTube Live event on the Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD). I've had dozens of patients lose 30 pounds or more. Most of them do that with a combination of low carb and Time Restricted Eating. But very few take my advice on fasting. Why? It's hard. I know that. Valter Longo's product PROLON is an easy button for hardening your body to fasting. I'm doing an FMD event this week and covering the experience on YouTube Live. For more information, contact us at 859-721-1414 or myhealth@prevmedheartrisk.com.

How Fasting Resets Your Biology and Helps You Live Longer – Valter Longo, Ph.D., with Dave Asprey : 812

The Human Upgrade with Dave Asprey—formerly Bulletproof Radio

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I’m talking with a godfather of fasting, Professor Valter Longo, Ph.D. He started researching fasting decades before anyone else started paying much attention to it. In 2018, TIME Magazine named Prof. Longo as one of the 50 most influential people in health care for his research on fasting-mimicking diets as a way to improve health and prevent disease.He’s director of the Longevity Institute at University of Southern California-Leonard Davis School of Gerontology, Los Angeles, and director of the Longevity and Cancer Program at the Italian Foundation of Cancer Research. “Fasting really in my mind is probably the most powerful way to reset and help regenerate, but also help clear junk and damage that is accumulated,” Prof. Longo says.Our conversation hits the high points of how and why to fast, and also goes into the research that got us to what we know today and looks at what’s next. We talk about everything from Prof. Longo's foundational research on yeast to the possibility of having future technology that tells us how to fast based on certain blood markers or gut bacteria.He’s also focused his work on the nutrients present in the fats, proteins and carbs we choose to consume during our fasts. “Without understanding how nutrients such as proteins and sugars affect cellular function, aging and aging damage, and regeneration, it's difficult to determine the type and quantity of nutrients for optimal longevity,” Prof. Longo says in his book, “The Longevity Diet: Discover the New Science Behind Stem Cell Activation and Regeneration to Slow Aging, Fight Disease, and Optimize Weight.” Beyond fasting, Prof. Longo created five pillars of longevity related to nutrition and human biology: juventology (the study of youth), epidemiology, clinical studies, centenarian studies, and the study of complex systems.We also discuss bigger philosophical questions and the ethics surrounding longevity. What would it mean to try and live forever? And what does longevity mean in the face of advancing technology that may boost our life span by 50 to 100 years? “I think technology is going to take over in the next 50 years and I think bionics is going to take over in the next 50 years,” Prof. Longo says. “It’s going to be a very different world; it’s going to be a very different approach. And it’s going to be an approach that has to do much more with memory and memory transfer, and all kinds of crazy things.”Got a comment, idea or question for the podcast? Submit via this form.WE APPRECIATE OUR PARTNERS.

Dr. Valter Longo – Fasting Mimicking Diet improves breast cancer treatment

Chris Beat Cancer: Heal With Nutrition & Natural Therapies

Complete show notes and links here: https://www.chrisbeatcancer.com/dr-valter-longo-fasting-mimicking-diet-improves-breast-cancer-treatment/ “The most powerful medicine is the medicine from within.” – Dr. Valter Longo It’s been two and a half years, since my last interview with Dr. Valter Longo, and today he’s back to share some exciting updates on his ongoing research, specifically on fasting to improve cancer treatment. Valter Longo PhD is the author of the book, The Longevity Diet, and one of the foremost researchers in the world on fasting, immune system regeneration, and longevity. Dr. Longo and colleagues also developed the Fasting Mimicking Diet, a 4-5 day, plant-based, calorie-restricted diet, which is used clinically under the name Xentigen (formerly Chemolieve) and is available to consumers under the brand name ProLon. In this new interview, Dr. Longo talks about three new studies published in Nature on the impact that a Fasting Mimicking Diet has on cancer cells and cancer treatment. These studies found: -Breast cancer patients who did a four-day Fasting Mimicking Diet around each chemo cycle had the same amount of side effects as the control group doing chemo, but without taking an additional drug to reduce side effects. The FMD group had a five times better response to chemo than the non-FMD group. They were more likely to experience 90-100% tumor loss and they had far less long-term immune cell damage. -The Fasting Mimicking Diet combined with IV vitamin C worked better than vitamin C alone. -Hormone therapy ER+ with FMD caused increased tumor regression and reversed treatment resistance. It is an absolute thrill and an incredible honor to be able to interview Dr. Valter Longo again. Dig in, learn some amazing stuff, and then share this interview with the people you care about!
