The Youth Restoration Program



The goal of conventional medicine is to keep patients alive. Just "being alive" though doesn't mean there is any quality to life. Frequently "being alive" means being incarcerated in an aging body, dependent on the help of others for even the simplest activities. It means loss of strength and vigor, loss of mental capacity and loss of many body functions. It means loss of independence and dignity.

Alternative medicine and specifically the Youth Restoration Program not only keeps the patient alive, it makes the patient strong with full physical and mental capacity to live a rich and independent life. The patient doesn't become a burden on society, he remains a contributing member of it.

It is our belief that aging is a disease, primarily caused by the waning secretion of hormones and by the degradation of cells in every organ. Many scientific papers have been written about how the production of hormones, such as HGH, Testosterone, Estrogen, Progesterone and DHEA, decline massively with age. It is also well documented that the decline in hormones typically causes many changes in body function and structure for the aging patient.

It is thus logical that if we replace the missing hormones and cellular building blocks to repair damaged cells of organs, we can come close to bringing back a normal, youthful structure and physiology.

The Youth Restoration Program consists of a full laboratory and physical analysis of the status quo. Then all necessary hormones are replaced in the correct dosage to reach the levels of 25 to 30 year old healthy people. The organs are revitalized by 29 different fetal cell preparations that are injected intramuscularly. In addition, we recommend a hair mineral analysis to determine the nutritional status of the cells and the load of heavy metal toxins.

The treatment is initiated at the medical center and continued by the patient in the comfort of his home.




HGH is the "pièce de resistance" not only in the Youth Restoration Program, but also in many treatments for various diseases. Many studies have shown, that HGH is the most important hormone for youth restoration purposes. As a person ages, he gains fat, loses muscle mass and organ size. Bones get more brittle and the skin thinner. HGH reverses this process in such a way that one notices an increase in muscle size and strength, an increase in skin thickness and elasticity and the loss of old age fat deposits.  

The physicians at Baxamed Medical Center were the first ones to introduce HGH replacement therapy to the general public after the famous study by the late Dr. Rudman was published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 1991. They thus have a decade of experience in treating patients with HGH. The most important aspect of HGH treatment is the correct dosage adjustment. Too low a dosage has little effect and too high a dosage can have side effects. Before any patient is treated with HGH (or other hormones) a complete lab evaluation must be done to find out the patient's hormonal status. This is essential to correctly dose the hormone and to rule out patients who still produce plenty of their own hormones.

Because of the anabolic effect of HGH, it has been and still is misused by athletes. It is our opinion that treatment with HGH of any individual who still has plenty of HGH of his own, is medically incorrect, un-ethical and has no effect. This is particularly true of athletes who produce large quantities of HGH through their rigorous physical training. The body  only has so many HGH receptors and any additional HGH is useless.

Decline of HGH with advanced age:


DHEA is a very important precursor hormone, that also has valuable properties of its own. It helps build muscle, loose fat, normalize cholesterol and even improves memory. DHEA levels decline quite rapidly with advanced age:


Dehydroepiandrosterone Reduces Serum Low Density Lipoprotein Levels and Body Fat but Does not Alter Insulin Sensitivity in Normal Men

Summary written by Dayna Dye, The Life Extension Foundation, Ft.Lauderdale, Florida

Several years ago, Life Extension Report published articles about laboratory experiments involving the hormone DHEA.  As many as of you may recall, DHEA is the most abundantly produced steroid hormone in the human body. Its production drops off rapidly after approximately age twenty-five.

DHEA has demonstrated several benefits when administered to laboratory animals, such as inhibition of cancer, diabetes and autimmune disease. Laboratory animals fed DHEA were also able to eat as much as they desired while experiencing weight loss.

At the time we reported on these experiments there had been no studies performed on human volunteers. It wasn't until 1988 that we found a study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinololgy and Metabolism which confirmed DHEA's ability to reduce body fat in humans.

In a randomized, double blind study, five men were given 1600 mg DHEA per day, while five received a placebo. Those receiving DHEA experienced a mean body fat decrease of thirty-one percent accompanied by a gain in muscle mass of equal weight. The test subjects also experienced a decrease in low density lipoprotein resulting in lower total cholesterol. Low density lipoprotein, or LDL, is a protein in the blood which carries cholesterol to the arteries and is therefore undesirable. High density lipoprotein, or HDL, is the desirable form. HDL levels remained the same, however, with lower LDL and total cholesterol, the ratio of HDL to total cholesterol was altered favorably. This ratio appears to be a more significant predicting factor for heart disease risk than total cholesterol.

One of the purposes of the experiment was to determine whether DHEA affected insulin sensitivity in normal humans. This was thought to be the cause of DHEA's effect on weight and cholesterol. Tests performed on clinical subjects did not bear out this hypothesis. DHEA evidently exercises its benefits by other mechanisms. What they are remain for future research to uncover.



Melatonin - a principal neuroimmunoregulatory and anti-stress hormone - the anti ageing wonder drug

In the beginnings of Melatonin research it was believed that this hormones' sole function was the control of the circadian rhythm. As time passed, it was discovered that melatonin has a vastly more important role in the human body. Some call it the regulator of the regulators in the endocrine system.

Melatonin and the Circadian Rhythm

Melatonin is secreted by the pineal gland located near the bottom of the brain. Secretion starts at sundown, announcing the beginning of night time to the body and getting it ready for sleep. At the first glimpse of sunlight in the morning its secretion ceases and we wake up.

As we grow older this gland calcifies and the secretion of Melatonin declines, thus causing the almost notorious sleeplessness of the elderly. And - since the pineal gland also needs beta adrenergic nerve impulses to secrete Melatonin - the common blood pressure medications, called Beta Blockers hinder the impulses needed to secrete. It frequently are the elderly who take blood pressure medication.  

Melatonin and Jet Lag

When one travels east across several time zones, it takes the internal clock about 1 day to adjust for 1 hour's difference. To recoup from the 6 hour time difference after a flight from New York to Paris, it commonly takes 5 to 6 days. If one takes 3 to 6 mg of Melatonin at the local bedtime (around 10 p.m.) he changes his internal clock to the local time immediately, he will fall asleep easily and have no trouble getting up.

Melatonin and Immunity

When mice were kept in an environment of constant lighting or given a Beta Blocker, Propranolol,  to stop the secretion of Melatonin over a longer period of time, a very severe impairment of body growth, of antibody production and an impressive atrophy of the thymic gland could be observed.

Another strain of mice, who usually had a high peak of Melatonin secretion at about 1 a.m., were given propranolol in the evening thus inhibiting the Melatonin secretion. This significantly inhibited the antibody production. When the mice were given synthetic Melatonin in the evening their antibody synthesis returned to normal. Evening Melatonin administration even antagonized the suppression of antibody production induced by an oral dose of cortisone.

When mice were submitted to stress, such as physical constraint or injection with a sub lethal dose of a most aggressive virus, the weight and size of their thymus gland diminished and antibody production almost ceased. Most of the mice injected only with the virus died, while the mice also treated with evening doses of Melatonin survived because the weight and size of the thymus gland and antibody production were restored to normal. 

This most remarkable effect of Melatonin in eliminating the immunosuppressive effect of stress and the consequent indirect potentiation of viral activity, demonstrates that Melatonin behaves as a true anti - stress buffer hormone, whose efficiency is especially visible in all those conditions in which the immune system is impaired and unable to respond properly to pathogens.

Melatonin and Breast Cancer

There are different types of breast cancer with significant variations in their cause, manifestation, speed of development and rate of metastazation (spreading).

In some women the tumor spreads and kills at warp speed, in other women the tumor takes its time and often can be treated with good results.

The most common types of breast cancer are caused by the presence of Estrogen, an essential hormone that is responsible for adequate bone strength (the best preventive agent against osteoporosis), sexual and reproductive function in women. Its' carcinogenic effect can be counteracted by Progesterone, that should be given along with Estrogen when treating Menopause.

The Estrogen - sensitive breast cancers are covered with Estrogen receptors. When Estrogen binds to these receptors, the cancer cells start to divide and the tumor proliferates rapidly.

Several groups of scientists extensively studied the effect of Melatonin on Estrogen - sensitive breast tumors. They found that Melatonin competes with Estrogen for the receptors on the tumor. One study showed that the tumor growth was reduced by 75 % when Melatonin levels corresponded to normal, youthful blood levels during evening hours. When Melatonin levels dropped and the tumor was again defencelessly exposed to Estrogen, tumor growth resumed at high speed.

Another study found that patients with a slow rate of tumor growth had much higher Melatonin levels than patients with a fast rate of growth of the same kind of tumor.

Melatonin and Tamoxifen

Tamoxifen is a natural substance found in soy beans and soy products such as Tofu. It is used in Europe to stop the growth and recurrence of Estrogen - sensitive breast cancer. It just may be the reason Japanese women do not get breast cancer, unless they move to the USA (or to any country where the diet does not include a lot of soy products) and change their diet.

It was shown that the pre treatment of  these tumorswith Melatonin enhances the effect of Tamoxifen 100 fold in inhibiting cancer growth.

Melatonin as a Treatment for Cancer

Chemotherapy treatment of cancers is far more effective in patients whose Melatonin levels are high. There have been similar findings for Thymosin, one of the 50 substances secreted by the Thymus gland. It is the chief regulator of the Immune System.

Melatonin and Migraine

Nocturnal secretion of Melatonin was diminished in a group of mainly female patients, who suffered from Migraines. The groups' Melatonin levels were studied for over a year. These findings suggest that the Migraines could be caused by environmental changes, such as seasonal or rapid time changes, to which the sluggish pineal gland is not able to adjust. Melatonin therapy might be a way to prevent and treat Migraine headaches. It certainly deserves more study.

Health Benefits of Melatonin

The reported benefits from patients range from improved quality of sleep, better resistance to infections, increased energy during the day, increased sex drive to prevention of time disorientation. Since Melatonin is the regulator in the secretion of other neuroendocrine hormones (hormones regulated and secreted in the brain), it just might be the anti ageing hormone, because diminished secretion of hormones is responsible for ageing.

Recommended Dosage of Melatonin

Healthy people should take nightly doses of Melatonin in the range of 3 to 9 mg . The best time to swallow it is right before bed time. Some people do not respond to 3 mg with a better nights' sleep; then they must increase the dosage. Other people may feel a hang over in the morning if they take too much. They must reduce the dosage.



Pregnenolone like DHEA, Melatonin, Estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone is a hormone that declines with increasing age. Recent studies demonstrated that Pregnenolone has a remarkable capability to increase memory function at very low doses. It is used to treat memory impairment due to illness and old age. In the 1930 to 1940s it was successfully used to treat arthritis, but it was forgotten when the first anti inflammatory medications were pushed on the market. Dosage varies between 10 to 100 mg per day. There are no reports of adverse effects even with doses of 500 mg daily for 3 months, allthough it is not recommended or usefull to take such high doses.



Meet the Andropause: women in their fifties enter menopause, caused by a rapid decline of sex hormones - particularly progesterone. Until recently it was only suspected that men go through a change like menopause. New evidence confirms this supspicion. The decline of the male sex hormone testosterone is much slower than in women making the symptoms develop more slowly and hardly noticeable.

Testosterone is responsible for libido and sperm production. But it is not only a sex hormone, it also increases protein synthesis in the cells, and keeps up aerobic metabolism thus reducing the risk of cancer as cancer cells use anaerobic metabolism. Aerobic metabolism is also important to regulate cholesterol, supply sufficient oxygen to vital organs like the heart and the pancreas thus helping to prevent heart disease and diabetes. At any age aerobic exercise can increase the production of testosterone. Testosterone has fibrinolytic properties, this means it helps to prevent blood clots that would lead to thrombosis. Testosterone has anabolic properties and is counteracted by cortisol and adrenalin. Constant stress increases cortisol and adrenalin and aging decreases testosterone secretion. This leads to a catabolic state, where muscle mass is lost. 

Testosterone therapy should be done under the supervision of a specialized physician. Only natural testosterone should be used such as Testosterone cream or patches. Most other forms are synthetic and not identical to the bodys' own testosterone.
