Is Aging Reversal Possible With GH3? (part I)

Chapter 10 from "Nutrients to Age Without Senility" by Abram Hoffer, M.D., Ph.D. and Morton Walker, D.P.M

The promise of prolonged youth and the testimonials of thousands of patients have carried word of a seemingly miraculous treatment far beyond the borders of the People's Republic of Rumania. Rumania is the nation of origin of Ana Aslan, M.D., director of the National Institute of Gerontology and Geriatrics. Under her supervision, a staff of 1,000 in over 200 Rumanian clinics give treatment to reverse aging using the drug she has developed called Gerovital H3 (GH3).

Pilgrimages by notables including French President Charles De Gaulle, U.S. President John F. Kennedy, West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer, Chinese Chairman Mao Tse Tung and Vietnamese Chairman Ho Chi Minh, were taken to acquire injections of this youth drug. Actresses Marlene Dietrich, Lillian Gish, the Gabor sisters, and actors Charlie Chaplin and Kirk Douglas and artist Salvador Dali have made the journey. They traveled to the Otopeni Clinic just outside the ancient city of Bucharest, where Dr. Aslan does her research with GH3. Once discovered by these celebrities, GH3 itself has become famous and is now used in over twenty countries around the world. It is available over the counter without prescription in England, Germany, Italy and Switzerland. However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration does not approve of its distribution in any of the other fifty states, and the American Medical Association concurs with this ruling. [GH3 can be legally imported in the USA, for personal use. You may purchase here our pharmaceutical grade, original formula with Procaine Hcl].

GH3 is simply the local anesthetic procaine hydrochloride--used by dentists and podiatrists - to which has been added buffering agents and other chemicals to create a hybrid drug (Gerovital H3). The additives have transformed this local anesthetic into a new medicine that possibly reverses the aging process (anti-aging). How this came about makes for an interesting story and reveals a lot more about procaine and its youth restoring properties.

Dr Parhon discovers Dr Aslan:

Intensely interested in the problems of aging, Dr. Constantine I. Parhon founded the Institute of Endocrinology in Bucharest, Rumania, to carry on his experiments on the functions of the endocrine glands. He published the first large scale endocrinological work in medical annals fifty years ago. For forty years, Dr. Parhon continued his experiments searching constantly for the causes of aging.This drive of Dr. Parhon's to find the reasons behind aging and perhaps arrive at a solution to slow down or retard the aging process led him to establish the Institute of Geriatrics. This Institute was founded at the request of the Rumanian government in 1951. It had become the center for the study in the advanced methods for both the treatment of the aged and retarding the signs of age. One of Dr. Parhon's staff members at the Institute of Endocrinology was Ana Aslan, M.D. For over twenty years, this doctor had been a specialist in cardiovascular diseases. She had been interested in the pharmacodynamical properties of procaine and the reactions of this drug on the human body. Before coming to the Institute, Dr. Aslan was a researcher in pharmacology (the science of drugs) at an experimental clinic in Timisoara, Rumania. It was here that she first began using procaine in the treatment of asthma and for circulation disorders.

During her tenure at Timisoara, she uncovered the works of Dr. Gustav Spiess. He was the first to discover that procaine had many other values besides its known anesthetic qualities. He wrote reports about his experiments about the curative powers of this drug which Prof. Aslan read. After checking this literature, she extended her treatment to include patients with arthritis and limb embolisms. Another pioneer in this work was Rene Leriche whose work went further than Dr. Spiess's.

Dr. Aslan, encouraged by these reports, adjusted their methods in her practice. She also used Leriche's method, who advocated the infiltration of 10 to 25 cc and was able to restore the affected joint or limb of her patients. These patients, often after two treatments, were able to return to work and were free of pain. This increased the uses in her practice from asthmatic patients; she used it as an anti-inflammatory agent for those suffering from bone and joint diseases.

It took a dramatic incident to convince Dr. Aslan that she should continue to concentrate her efforts on developing procaine H3 for anti aging therapy. She was satisfied that it had many unknown benefits. When injecting procaine H3 into arthritic joints and other areas of pain, she noticed her patients' response was most satisfactory. Joints heretofore immobile or frozen were now mobile and flexible, almost normal. Under Dr. Parhon's guidance, she continued to experiment at the fine laboratory facilities at his Institute, working to find the drug's effectiveness on the aged. Dr. Parhon is convinced that the old age process is treatable exactly as any other disease. Dr. Aslan, with her research background, advanced his theory that old age was not only treatable but could also be retarded.

Anti-aging, serious medical research with procaine:

Gerontologists concur that as the body grows older, definite physiological changes occur. Many patients exhibit the following group of symptoms:
Premature aging with its complex group of symptoms
Diseases of the aged, loss of memory, energy and vitality
Diseases of the nervous system, diminished hearing abilities, visual acuity and dulled mental functions Diseases of muscles and joints, rheumatism and arthritis
Diseases of skin and allergies, baldness, psoriasis, and the old appearance of the skin, face and body. Diseases of the cardiovascular system, angina pectoris and varicose veins
Diseases of the gastrointestinal system, ulcers and stomach disorders.

Prof. Aslan believes that the body's inherent natural ability to replace cells lost through disease and age diminishes through the years. Procaine supplements the body's ability to regenerate the cells. She is convinced that cell regeneration is responsible for a return of youthfulness to older people. Her experiments with mice, for the next few years, substantiated her theory that besides removing the effects of a disease, it had no side reactions. In mice that developed arthritis, the beneficial effects and their return to complete mobility was most encouraging. These successes led her to treat almost 200 patients at the Institute who exhibited a wide range of dysfunctions. Some patients were suffering from old age ailments, others from arthritis and degenerative diseases.

Initially, she used procaine to treat twenty-five elderly patients, whose range of ailments was from arthritis to senility; she had apparent successes. None was happier than this initial group--the blessing to obtain dramatic relief from diseases that plagued them for years was heartfelt. With the signs and symptoms of premature aging diminished, Prof. Aslan was still unsure of which factors worked for her patients. The name of her treatment--GH3--intrigued her. Could it be that the component parts of GH3 were needed and used by the body? The fact is that GH3 hydrolizes in the body releasing these factors.

After working with procaine Since 1947 on an experimental basis, using it for years in the treatment of specific diseases, and making a great many clinical observations, Dr. Aslan made claims for procaine: when administered properly and in certain prescribed doses, it would not only retard the aging process but would relieve chronic ailments, diseases of old age and premature aging. This remarkable claim for a drug, known throughout the world as an anesthetic was based on treating 20,000 patients for a period of over fifteen years. Some individual patients have been treated for as long as ten years. This backlog of patients provided her with many questions to be resolved. When it was administered, why were the actions of GH3 so different from another product? Did the body have the ability to extract the good from the ingredients found in the product?
