By Yollo Wellness –
Have you ever wondered if “healthy” foods are actually making you sick? Have you ever wanted to know how fast your cells are aging or how you can slow down that aging process?
The Telomere Test is the window to your true cellular age. This advanced test measures the length of your telomeres, the end caps of your DNA. Telomeres are sections of genetic material at the end of each chromosome whose primary function is to prevent chromosomal “fraying” when a cell replicates. As a cell ages, its telomeres become shorter. Eventually, the telomeres become too short to allow cell replication; the cell stops dividing and will ultimately die – a normal biological process. Spectra Cell’s Telomere test is available at YOLLO Wellness.
How are the results reported?
Your telomere score is calculated based on your average telomere length in peripheral whole blood cells. This average is then compared to telomere lengths from a population sample in the same age range as yours to determine the percentile score.
What do the results mean to you?
Age adjusted telomere length is the best method to date to assess biological age using structural analysis of chromosomal change in telomeres. Serial evaluation of telomere length is an indicator of how rapidly one ages relative to a normal population. Therapies directed at slowing the loss of telomere length may slow aging and age-related diseases. YOLLO Wellness offers these therapies.
What are the nutritional implications on
telomere length and repair?
An inflammatory diet, or one that increases oxidative stress, will shorten telomeres faster. The “wrong” foods although healthy foods, will induce inflammation. Did you know that certain healthy foods might not actually work with your white blood cells? The foods may be causing major inflammation in the body, shortening your telomeres? YOLLO Wellness offers the ALCAT test. This test will help enable you to eliminate the foods that keep your body in a chronic inflammatory state. The ALCAT test is a whole blood test that measures the body’s cellular response to a wide array of substances including foods, functional foods, medicinal herbs, food additives, food colorings, environmental chemicals, molds, and antibiotics. Scientific studies have shown that short telomeres are associated with age related decline and dysfunction. Evidence clearly shows that people with long telomeres age healthier and live longer.
How Does Micronutrient (vitamin) Testing Help Your Telomeres?
Overwhelming scientific evidence confirms that vitamin deficiencies are associated with disease processes and the overall condition of one’s health. Another specific test that is available at YOLLO Wellness that help measure those deficiencies is called a Micronutrient test, by Cell Science. Micronutrient testing is a state of the art blood evaluation that detects low levels of specific micronutrients. Did you ever wonder what supplements you should be taking and how much of each one? The micronutrient test measures how micronutrients are actually functioning within white blood cells. The Micronutrient test measures the function of over 30 selected vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other essential micronutrients within your white blood cells. Analysis can reveal a person’s functional nutrient status over a much longer time period than conventional serum testing. This test measures specific nutrients to determine whether you are absorbing and utilizing the nutrients you need and which nutrients you are missing. This reduces inflammation and slows down the shortening of your telomeres.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatments (HBOT)
HBOT is yet another method of reducing inflammation and assist with slowing down telomere shortening. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy provides this extra oxygen naturally. HBOT treatments enhances the body’s natural healing process by inhalation of oxygen in a total body chamber where atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled. The increased oxygen greatly enhances the ability of white blood cells to kill bacteria, reduces swelling and allows new blood vessels to grow more rapidly It is a simple, non-invasive and painless therapy.
Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI)
DITI is a noninvasive diagnostic technique that allows you to instantly see a visual picture. Telomere shortening is directly related to inflammation. Inflammation can be “seen” with a Digital Infrared Image at YOLLO Wellness.
