Cynthia Kenyon is one of the world’s foremost authorities on the molecular biology and genetics of aging and life extension. In 1993, Kenyon’s pioneering discovery that a single-gene mutation could double the lifespan of healthy, fertile C. elegans roundworms sparked an intensive study of the molecular biology of aging. Her findings showed that, contrary to popular belief, aging does not “just happen” in a completely haphazard way. Instead, the rate of aging is subject to genetic control: Animals (and likely people) contain regulatory proteins that affect aging by coordinating diverse collections of downstream genes that together protect and repair the cells and tissues. Kenyon’s findings have led to the realization that a universal hormone-signaling pathway influences the rate of aging in many species, including humans. She has identified many longevity genes and pathways, and her lab was the first to discover that neurons, and also the germ cells, can control the lifespan of the whole animal.
Cynthia Kenyon: Experiments that hint of longer lives…
Nutrigenomics is the science that shows how foods and nutrients control our genes and how they express either optimal health or weakened health as we age. This is a major breakthrough and it puts us in control of our genes. We are no longer victims of our parents genetic patterns, with no power to alter our state of health as we grow older.
Does it work?
Client testimonials with regard to immune health:
“When I first went in to see Christopher Wiechert, I had chronic bronchitis and sinus infections. The antibiotics were no longer effective, which was frightening, and I didn’t think I would ever be able to work or exercise again. Christopher analyzed my current state of health and put me on a program to boost my immune system, balance my blood sugar issues, clear my respiratory system, and improve my overall health and energy. Now I am working at a high-powered, 12 hour-per-day job again, in addition to doing daily aerobic exercise, and raising a family. I feel like I have been given my life back.” – K H – Nevada
“I can’t say enough about the knowledge and insight Christopher has in the area of nutrition, it has changed my life! I have PCOS and suffered with Epstein-Barr virus in the past and never regained all my strength and energy back. I was tired often and my weakened immune system kept me chronically ill with sinus infections, allergies and the like. Christopher came highly recommended and after two sessions I could see why. He assessed my medical/nutritional history and came up with a plan of supplements and diet specific for my body. Within weeks I noticed my digestion was improving and in 4-6 months I saw a significant improvement in my energy level and overall health. It has been a year since I saw Christopher and I continue to take the supplements and follow a low carb way of life. I feel alive and healthy again! I have energy to play and keep up with my 3 year old! For the first time in 6 years I have not had a sinus infection! My allergy attacks have been few and the times I do get sick are short lived and much milder than before. In addition, I was able to loose some stubborn fat that seemed to only come off when going “low carb.” I’m so thankful I was introduced to Christopher! – S W, Registered Nurse – California
Client testimonials with regard to weight and overall health issues:
Client Testimonial: I had been sickly most of my life, but ridiculously sickly the three years previous to the discovery I am gluten intolerant… I have been intolerant my entire life however who would have known?
I was raised eating from scratch, healthy meals, I didn’t eat a bunch of junk… (too much sugar but that was my doing)
Two years ago, my life changed when out of desperation I saw a nutritionist Christopher Wiechert. With his guidance, my diet changed drastically, and he customized a high quality vitamin and mineral program just for me, based on my symptoms…
I did not set out to lose weight, I set out to feel better.
I am down 45 lbs., from a size 16 pants to a 8. I never dreamed this could happen.
My favorite part… I’m no longer sickly.
I feel I have a second chance at life and I’ll not take it for granted.
Thank you Christopher Wiechert
Client Testimonial: “10 years ago, you told me about a healthier way of eating. I blew it off and kept up my food pyramid diet. Also gaining a ton of weight, with countless doctor visits who only knew to prescribe steroids, Prilosec, or Paxil for all of my phantom illnesses. After finally following your advice – I’m now down 55lbs, Illness and Rx free. And, gained new understanding of your befuddlement in people who refuse to take your advice.” – D Y – California

Client Testimonial: “When I first met Christopher, I was 65 pounds overweight, and I had a Rash all over my body. I had a lot of inflammation, and I was in a lot of joint pain. Eating Paleo, and the best nutrition, vitamins, and minerals, are where it’s at…
And Christopher Wiechert understands how to use them. Today I am a new woman.” CD – Oregon
