What are telomeres & what do they have to do with aging?Telomeres are the caps at the end of the DNA strand. Visualize the plastic cases that cap the end of shoelaces: This is what a telomere is like. Telomeres protect the chromosomes. Over time, telomeres shorten. This shortening can impact the cellular aging process.
Certain activities and factors can dramatically hasten the telomere’s natural degeneration, including:

  • Smoking
  • Severe stress
  • Obesity
  • Poor nutrition
  • Lack of exercise

Nobel Prize-Winning Science Shows Hope for Telomere Repair

In 2009, a group of three scientists received the Nobel Prize for Physiology / Medicine for their work in discovering how an enzyme called telomerase can stop, slow, or even reverse age-related telomere shortening. Telomerase encourages cell longevity and health. This exciting development means that doctors can harness the power of telomerase as an effective anti-aging treatment for patients.

Reverse Aging Effects at the Cellular Level

Telomere shortening impacts the aging process at the cellular level. At Harmony Healing Center, we utilize telomere therapy treatment to help our patients slow or reverse the effects of aging. This therapy can result in healthier skin, hair, and immune systems — in short, healthier and more robust and energetic lives.
