For tonight, I just wanted to post a fascinating and unredacted email from Ralph P. of Colorado. His observations are not uncommon of the system-wide regeneration experienced when taking Ta-65. Of note, his enthusiasm to start a PhD at age 61 is one of the wonderful things that happens when you make the “existential U-turn” and truly believe that the days ahead will be easier and more productive than those behind.
“It’s been a while since I’ve given you an update on how TA-65 has been working. There have been unmet expectations as well as unexpected improvements.
My biggest concern is to separate the placebo effect from the objective evaluation of the experiment. Most of the objective experiences revolve around hair. I’m gradually growing more hair but the progress has been slow and seems to have a particular pattern. I’ll see a crop of fuzz that is invisible unless you look closely and the lighting is just right. I’ll assume that when that crop of hair grows out, I’ll no longer look bald. But that crop of fuzz doesn’t grow out, it seems to die. A few hardy sprouts hold on and slowly I’m getting hair back.
It is amazing how much hair it takes before you don’t look bald. No one has noticed the additional hair except those I’ve told I’m taking TA-65. It isn’t apparent yet in photos unless you look closely. I used to have about 50 hairs on the top of my entire head and now I have probably a thousand. Slow but sure progress.
The hair is getting darker also. I used to have dark black hair but was largely grey. I’m now noticing a few black hairs in among the grey. My mustache is also getting dark. I first noticed the difference when I cut my hair in the back. It would come off the clipper and looked darker but I have been collecting the clippings for a couple years now and they still don’t look a lot different. I’m about to conduct an experiment concealing the dates and have someone rank them for the amount of grey in them and see if there is a noticeable difference.
I’ve been collecting the stubble from my electric razor on the same day as I cut my hair. That shows even less difference than the longer hairs. The small size makes it impossible to distinguish grey from dark and it would probably take some type of equipment to distinguish the difference from different dates; it is not apparent from visual inspection.
Other “hair experiences” are related to hearing. The TV I listen to has a volume setting and I’ve gone from a setting of 12 to listen to TV down to 9 and sometimes 8. The remarkable part of this observation is that it seems to cycle the same way the hair on top of my head cycles. I’ll make improvements, then lose those improvements, then make further improvements, each time gaining more ground. Those improvements seem to have stabilized and I don’t seem to have any more times when I lose ground on my hearing.
I used to have to trim my nose hairs every few days but I now go for a couple months without that annoying growth. My ear hairs don’t seem to have made quite as much improvement but there may be some–it’s hard to tell because I hadn’t documented anything and the trimming wasn’t needed as frequently as with the nose hairs.
The most notable change is that before I started with TA-65, I felt old. The aches and pains of growing older were taking their toll and I was losing the battle to summon the will to overcome them. I’m convinced that more people lose the energy to fight the battle to stay young and drift off into old age. TA-65 has given me that energy back.
I used to play racquetball and take two or more days to recover. Now I’m finding that while the rest of the people I’m playing with want to take a break, I’m going back into the court to bat the ball around to stay loose and get more exercise. A two hour racquetball session isn’t enough exercise for me so I’m trying to find more people to play that have more stamina or can stagger sessions. Now, I’m hardly sore at all most days. That also seems to have a cyclic pattern where I’ll have to spend a day to recover, but those cycles seem to be leveling off to where I can be ready to go again later that same day.
I used to have back pain that caused me to walk bent over. This is the way may father walked and my brother sometimes walks that way. I now walk much straighter without pain.
I had been developing skin tags that would come and go taking longer to go away each year. Those have mostly disappeared.
Not all aging problems are solved. I still have a problem maintaining the weight I originally lost. I thought the jowls I lost was the result of weight loss but after putting back almost all the weight, the jowls were mostly gone. However, skin thickness seems to be the same as before. I haven’t noticed much improvement in loss of wrinkles though at least they haven’t continued to progress as before. I started taking pictures, mostly for the hair growth, but have slowed the picture taking after seeing how long it takes to register progress.
Shortly after starting TA-65 I developed bright flashes on the edge of my vision when I moved my eyes rapidly. The eye doctor told me that often happens as we age. I hoped the TA-65 would have resolved the issue but it is still there after a couple years.
I still have some issues with sensitive patches of skin on my legs that itch, especially if I wear polyester pants. I had hoped the problem I have with the thick nails on my toes would go away but I’ve started using Nonex to get rid of them.
I’ve always wanted to get a PhD and now have the will and energy to consider it. I’m starting to check into schools. I’m so concerned that they will outlaw longevity treatments that I’m considering going into biology (perhaps gerontology) so I’ll have access to those kinds of treatments.
I’ve finally convinced a brother and his wife to consider taking TA-65. We will probably order together to get the 8 bottle price. I’ll have them call you to give you the information you need if they decide to start taking it.
