Last week, friend and patient, Soledad Mexia, passed away peacefully in San Diego as the 5th oldest person in the world.  Her memorial service is tomorrow, Sunday September 8th. Click here to send flowers or enter the guest book.


In this video, I interviewed her about the secrets to a long life and had the pleasure of documenting her joy of living and her incredible family at her 112th birthday celebration.   It is a home video for a family which can teach all of us about what it means to be truly alive.


Dr. Steve Coles of UCLA’s Gerontology Research Group, explains in my book, “Telomere Timebombs” that when he began studying people over 110 years of age (supercentenarians) he assumed that science and progress would make it difficult to keep track of the increasing numbers of them.  That has not happened. The 110 club size hasn’t changed at all and is open to only about 60 members at a time over the last three decades.

This is what Dr. Coles said about TTB:

“In my view, Dr. Park has chosen the correct attitude for us to think about the process of aging…For example, he first asks, not if aging will be slowed, but ‘When will aging become a thing of the past?’ He then answers, ‘Aging will soon become a choice rather than a curse.’  Dr. Park’s writing style and persuasive logic are a pleasure to read.”

Finally, this illustration from “Telomere Timebombs” explains why telomerase activation may be the key to increasing the number of supercentenarians and changing the rules for a long healthy life for all of us.

I graduated from Harvard with honors in Biological Anthropology prior to earning my Medical Degree and Masters in Public Health from Columbia University.

In 2007, I became the nineteenth patient to sign up for the use of a herbally-extracted telomerase activator.

The results were so positive that I founded Recharge Biomedical Clinic in 2008 and have since become the leading medical expert in this exciting new field of regenerative medicine treating over 1,300 patients with this exciting new telomerase activation medicine.

I won two Houston Film Festival Awards for my screenplays about Hypatia of Alexandria and Ed Brown of Kentucky.

In 2010 I wrote and self-published a Sci-Fi Graphic Novel called MAXIMUM LIFESPAN

In 2013, I wrote and published "Telomere Timebombs; Defusing the Terror of Aging"
