What do Telomeres have to do with ageing?

Sometimes it’s enough for me to take an abstract concept someone tells me and believe it because it just resonates with me and sounds logical.  But now, I have time to do some more research into my beliefs and Bruce Lipton (biologist) is fast becoming a favourite.

My mom signed me up for the subjects in secondary school about which we had options.  She signed me up for Domestic Science (hated it) instead of Science (often wonder where I would be had she chosen differently) and for Latin instead of Commerce.  When she told my Dad he freaked – really wish he had called them up and changed the Science one!  But I quite liked Latin and think the maths in commerce would have driven me crazy as it did most of my friends who spent hours trying to do balance sheets in homework class.

I’ve just been through (put myself through) two stressful weeks – a bit scared of waking up dead, not just because of coronavirus but because of some health issues.  I’ve changed my diet, doing some exercise etc and actually, even though it’s only been a week or so, I appear to be losing belly fat (YEAH!!!)  I can’t say why EXACTLY because the diet change and exercise goes along with more serious efforts at meditation at least twice a day, a change of mindset and trying to develop a happier outlook in life.

So, yesterday up pops Bruce with the video below.  He talks about TELOMERES.   Only other person I ever heard talking about these is Dr. Joe Dispenze.  But Dr. Joe didn’t explain it like Dr. Bruce does 🙂

Anyway, I find this info very exciting because Telomeres have EVERYTHING to do with ageing – the slowing down or speeding up of ageing and the immune system .  Never mind the whacky bit at the beginning of the video.  Stick with it.  I love how he compares cell duplication and the telomeres position/function to a train running out of track etc.  It makes it easy to understand.

I also love the fact that Dr. Joe’s meditations (which I am doing) have been proved to lengthen TELOMERES!!!!!  Good News!  Maybe my meditations are lengthening MY telomeres.

What lengthens telomeres?  Being happy – loving life!  Who knew?
