“Dying is a waste of time…”
…focus on holding back time”

I was sitting next to a 40 year old after a funeral, and she looked over and said – “I wish I too could grow old and die with dignity”.  My response was sudden “why do we have to die at all?” There are many creatures on this planet that do not grow old and die so why do humans, and what is so great about growing old and sick?”. “Well”, she said, “who wants to live forever?”. “If you could be guaranteed perfect health, vivacity, and no disease, why would anyone wish to die? Surely, we would all wish to live”. The key here is having “great health” because as modern medicine has extended life, it has come at the cost of chronic diseases, particularly cancer, heart disease, and diseases of the aging brain to name a few. 


No one has discovered the fountain of youth. In fact, some scientists have considered it a folly to try and achieve this…but they may not always be right!  The science of holding back time, and preventing age, and some hope, to reverse it, is actually gathering ahead at great pace. 


Here is an important secret. One of core reasons why we age and die is because our genes degenerate. You see, our genes are protected by a cap called the telomeres. As you grow older, your telomeres shorten, the genome becomes, more readily oxidized, unstable, and the rate of DNA mutations increase – that is the rate of cancer, heart, metabolic, brain disease, and other chronic diseases. Worse still, some of our cells become inactive (i.e., stop working) and others release chemicals that cause inflammation and metabolic disarray especially in lipid and cholesterol, leading to bloating and hard to shift fat deposits. This inflammation worsens the prospects of chronic diseases. These changes are seen in what is called the epigenome. 


We can measure your true biological age using epigenetic tests. This is the age you really are. It is not your birthday, which is the day you were born. For you to be healthy, your biological age must be lower than your birth age, and best, if the difference is more than 5 years.  Now, that we can measure your true biological age, can we stop or reverse the aging process, and quantify how much progress has been made? Yes, we can!


Whilst we do not seem able to completely reverse aging, there is evidence we can “hold back time”. At Casa Privée we do this through Prof Dr. Johnson’s concept that he calls AIR.

A – air, in the form of hyperbaric or high pressure oxygen reaching at least 2 – 2.4 atmospheres. Hyperbaric (HBOT) machines are the most powerful anti-oxidant at the level of the cell to keep the cells healthy and also, importantly, stop the shortening of the telomeres or even lengthen them again by up to 20%.  This revolution in knowledge is a potent means to reverse or arrest aging. The record in reversing aging stands at about 5 years. Imagine that! Few modern high efficiency HBOT machines are available in Miami!

I – intravenous biological support. To prevent aging your cells need to be at peak performance. We provide a special and proprietary combination of nutrients and cofactors that stimulate the “engines” within the cell. We supplement this with 6-point advice to boost microbiome (gut) health, immunity, and decrease inflammation. 

R – regenerative genetic based products are used to optimize the function of genes and help to revitalize cellular function. These products can help the body repair cellular damage and restore function.  


You do not have to be old to start anti-aging treatment. Indeed, most of those wishing to live a longer, healthier, and more productive life start this process as early as their 30’s. The earlier you start, the better!


Are there added benefits to anti-aging treatment apart from just slowing aging ? Yes, the same processes are applied to help individuals with concussion and head injury (e.g., seen prominently with NFL, boxers, and basket ball players), anyone who has suffered a head injury in an accident, diseases of the aging brain like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, speed recovery after plastic surgery (e.g breast augmentation), and there is growing evidence that this approach may be a future innovative treatment for mental health diseases. 


You might ask yourself, why have I not heard of this? Well, you have now!  Why seek us for this treatment at Casa Privée – because it is leading world center here in Miami, and the only private medical facility that has all the parts of the AIR concept and expertise under one roof.
