In 2006, several people requested an update on my visit to the Frontier Medical Institute (also known as the Grossman Wellness Center) in Denver, home of the longevity medicine described in the book Fantastic Voyage:Live Long Enough to Live Forever by Kurzweil and Grossman.
Ray Kurzweil, a recipient of the National Medal of Technology and an inductee into the Inventors Hall of Fame, is one of the world’s leading inventors, thinkers, and futurists and the author of three previous books on technology. Terry Grossman M.D., the founder and medical director of the Frontier Medical Institute in Denver, Colorado, a leading longevity clinic, is certified in anti-aging medicine and lectures internationally on matters related to longevity and anti-aging strategies.
During the two days, I spent a lot of time with Dr. Grossman discussing next generation medicine while they took over two pints of blood for analysis, ran me on a treadmill, gave me two rounds of IV chelation therapy, met with a nutritionist and expert in Chinese medicine, used computerized simulators to interact with my physical system and determine my biological age, did a CAT scan of my heart, and finished off with a two hour life coaching session. I’m still sending urine and saliva samples for analysis and all results will not be in for a few weeks.
Here is a preview of the results. My biological age is 24 years younger than my physical age on the average and my heart is 27 years younger than my physical age. The main reason for the lower average is the loss of some high frequencies in my hearing.
The answer to physicians and other people concerning the utility of nutritional supplements is that the proof is in the pudding. If anyone tells you that you don’t need nutritional supplements, ask them if they can provide proof that their biological age is at least 20 years less than their physical age. If they don’t know, you might recommend Dr. Grossman’s program to them.
In the 1980’s, it became clear that you could extend your life by 20 years through nutritional supplementation. At the time Ray Kurzweil wrote the book, his physical age was 56 and his biological age was 40 (see page 140). My understanding is that he is pushing a 25 year difference now with an intensive supplementation regime. The upper limit that Dr. Grossman sees is 25 years.
We both agreed that electromagnetic frequencies could push the difference higher and my immediate goal is to achieve a 30 year difference taking far fewer nutritional supplements than Ray Kurzweil. The electronic medicine strategy is beyond what is currently in their book.
I strongly recommend the Frontier Medical Institute program for anyone. If you follow their recommendations it should, conservatively, give you at least 10 more years of quality life. It’s not inexpensive. However, if one year of quality life is worth more than a few hundred dollars to you, it is in your financial interest to go through their workup. I view the work they do as the future of medicine. Unfortunately, you won’t find it at your local hospital or clinic and the health insurance companies won’t pay for most of it.
