Focal One® is a computer-controlled medical device for the treatment of localised prostate cancer by focused ultrasound (HIFU = High Intensity Focused Ultrasound). The energy is delivered via an endorectal probe. The ultrasound waves travel through the rectal wall and are focused on a part of the prostate. This focusing produces intense heat, resulting in tissue destruction within the target area. The treatment lasts between 30 minutes and 2 hours and can be performed under loco-regional anaesthesia.

Focal One® is a non-invasive treatment option that allows for a precise, local treatment in one session, that can be repeated if necessary, with a short hospital stay and few side effects. In the event of incomplete results, the choice of therapeutic options is wide and includes retreatment with Focal One®.

Focal One® may be indicated as:

  • a first line option for patients with localised cancer, stage T1-T2 (Gleason 6 or 7, PSA less than 15), according to their age and general condition.
  • a salvage therapy option for patients with local recurrence of prostate cancer initially treated by radiotherapy.

HIFU for prostate cancer

HIFU uses a high intensity convergent ultrasound beam generated by piezoelectric transducers. This focusing of ultrasound waves into one point greatly increases the temperature around the focal point, thus resulting in tumour destruction i.e. pathological biological tissue.

The application of HIFU for prostate cancer treatment involves focusing high intensity focused ultrasound to destroy, by heat, prostatic tissue affected by cancer, without damaging surrounding tissue. This technique is non-invasive because it avoids incision, allows loco-regional anaesthesia and limits the characteristic complications of prostate cancer treatment (incontinence or impotence).

Clinical results

In 2013 and 2014, two prospective cohort studies demonstrated the long-term (10 years) results of whole gland HIFU as a first-line option and have validated its effectiveness: according to the cancer risk, the specific survival rate at 10 years is between 92 and 99%; survival rate without metastases at 10 years is between 86% and 100%. These results, which are completely comparable to the best radical surgery results, demonstrate that HIFU is an effective first-line treatment option for localised prostate cancer.

We are equiped for both covid19 tests:

The PCR test:

  • Nose/throat swab
  • For patients that need to check whether they are currently having the virus and infectious

It’s useful for patients that are traveling or in contact with many other people on regular basis.

The serolgoy test:

  • Blood sample
  • For patients that want to know whether they had the virus and developed antibodies
  • A very sensitive screening test is carried out. Please note that the antibody formation may be delayed (3-6 weeks after infection) or, in mild cases, the detection may even remain negative. Depending on the patient’s medical history and findings, a follow-up in 2-3 weeks is recommended in case of a negative result.
    It is not yet clear whether a positive result will result in permanent immunity.

All results are ready in 24hrs

Our nurse can come at your home or work place to take sample

From today, we are starting the blood analysis to check whether you have developped immunity against the Covid19 virus.

Results ready in 24hrs.

Note: the formation of antibodies may be delayed (3 to 6 weeks after infection), or in benign cases, detection may be eventually stay negative. Depending on the patient’s history and result, a new analysis within 2-3 weeks may be recommended. If acute infection is suspected, the swab analysis is recommended.

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide is a compound found in every living cell.

Cellular defenders linked to longer life and protection from disease need optimal NAD+ levels to work properly.

Problem: levels of NAD+ drop with age, accelerating aging.

Nicotinamide riboside helps to rebalance NAD+ levels.

Maximizing NAD+ protects tissues from the effect age and may reduce risk for age related diseases.

Boosting Nad+ may have a positive impact on multiple areas of health such as:

  • Longevity
  • Physical performance
  • Brain health
  • Obesity and metabolic disorders
  • Cardiovascular health
  • Sleep disorder

A unique biomolecular formula based on your DNA developed in Switzerland

A new asset

Our defense and repair capabilities are tested every day in our body and seem to diminish from year to year, causing aging.

Day after day, the regeneration of the cells slows down and alterations appear in all the tissues, naturally, more visible, on the level of the cutaneous apparatus.

But we note that by isolating cells and specifically stimulating certain groups of genes acting in cascade, it is possible to find the regenerative capacity of our young years.

The life expectancy increases and it is essential to increase the resistance potential of your skin, of all your tissues or organs able to establish exchanges in contact with the active ingredients contained in Chronosome.

Cosmetology usually uses plant extracts or biological extracts.

Mastering new technologies, sequencing your DNA and understanding the mechanisms of aging can broaden the range of anti-aging products. From now on you are the source of these new assets.

Chronosome ™, made from your own DNA, becomes its exclusive vector.

This product is totally personalized. You will be the sole beneficiary of its effectiveness, it can not be exchanged or offered to others because, as you know, the DNA of each human body is personal and unique.

Why do we age?

The ends (telomeres) of the chromosomes, made up of a long DNA molecule, decrease during each cell division, signaling that changes take place inside the nucleus of our cells. This is only a sign, long taken for a cause.

Some genes in your DNA code the speed and rate of repair of your cells, their ability to divide and regenerate. In time, these abilities seem to be restricted, the maintenance of your cells is not done entirely and aging begins. In fact, everything remains potentially identical and if one stimulates an elderly cell correctly, it is competent and able to manufacture all the substances necessary for a perfect functioning like a young cell.

 Good news

The pooling of the discoveries of many collaborators makes it possible to better understand the role of our genetic heritage, and thereby, one of the main reasons for cell aging. This process is not inevitable. In fact, by taking cells and isolating their DNA, the cell division is interrupted and the countdown is stopped, this DNA no longer ages and can, thanks our exclusive processing, continue to give orders effective cell regulation.

Like a photographic snapshot, your DNA is protected from time, the potential of rejuvenation of this DNA, incorporated into Chronosome ™ can be restored to you for years. Chronosome ™ and your DNA will now be your most valuable allies in the fight against aging.

Chronosome ™ revolutionizes the anti-aging care, acts in the long term and in depth, without removing you the pleasure of taking care of your skin with the everyday cosmetics which act on the surface.

Beyond the care, a real anti-aging strategy

The Chronosome ™ concept represents a major technological evolution in modern cosmetology.

This new cosmeceutical, based on complex manufacturing protocols, guarantee totally individualized care with maximum efficiency.

The know-how of multidisciplinary partners, working in synergy, has allowed the development of this true anti-aging strategy.

How does Chronosome ™ work?

With each application, Chronosome ™, a true source of youth, allows your skin to tap the regenerative potential in your preserved DNA. Its extraordinary restorative abilities stimulate the regeneration and cellular metabolism of your skin. The epidermis naturally finds its performance, its raw qualities and the ability to maintain a good balance of functioning despite external constraints (homeostasis).

Only Chronosome ™ uses endogenous DNA to actively fight the appearance and effects of aging-related skin dysfunction.

This endogenous DNA avoids the risk of sensitivity or allergic reaction.

Beneficial at any age!

The most recent research shows that very quickly we will live up to more than 120 years. Our research will allow us get older in a healthier state.

The increase in life expectancy (on average 1 year every 4 years) implies taking care of oneself. Whatever your age at the beginning of treatment, Chronosome ™ acts on time and helps preserve the vitality of your skin.

Chronosome ™ is naturally effective in duration and its effects are amplified over time. Its bio molecular formulation is suitable for both men and women regardless of their skin type.

Set up this anti-aging strategy, three steps:

1st step

Saliva collection kit at disposal of the patient with instructions for use in many languages.

2nd step

The recipient deposits saliva samples containing the active ingredients in the transport tube provided for this purpose.

3rd step

Your DNA sample will be forward to  Laboratoire SwissCheckUp SA.

This laboratory, with your agreement, will extract your DNA, purify it and process it for a storage of several years. The storage of the first 10 years is included in the price of the first order.  Without a yearly renewing of your membership, the storage of your DNA will be deleted and your DNA destroyed. .

Sensitivity tests were performed for the support of the biomolecular formula. As for the formula itself, you can not be allergic to your own genetic material

Your Chronosome ™ can be delivered to you once a year or twice a year, carefully prepared, each time with your genetic material protected from aging in our secure centers. You have the choice to order a box of 4 vials for 6 months or 1 box of 8 vials for one year. Each order extends your storage for the next year.

The availability of your Chronosome ™ serum is in the form of annual membership to the Swiss Age Club for an annual amount of CHF 5000.00.

During this period, we are committed to providing Chronosome ™ for optimal use during the contract period. One year renewable from year to year

** Advances in technology will certainly allow you to benefit from new medical and cosmeceutical developments, but also from predictive diagnoses, leading to real prevention advice or future treatments. For this reason our corporate ethic does not allow us to offer you a contract-formula higher than 10 years without allowing you to benefit from our research.

How to use the biomolecular formula

Chronosome ™ is used daily on previously cleaned and prepared skin. The application is done only in the evening, by massaging the sensitive parts of the face (eye contour, crow’s feet, …).

 Processing

>          We deliver 8 vials per year (you can choose between packing 4 vials every 6 months or 8 vials for one year).

>          Each 30ml vial dispenses the active ingredients drop by drop for daily use for one month and half

For many aging men, erectile dysfunction is a growing problem and can become a chronic problem.

This issue is often treated with drugs such as Viagra, Cialis or similar. These drugs work by relaxing the smooth muscles lining the arteries, that increases blood flow to the penis. But they also come with side effects such as skin flushing, visual disturbances, hearing loss and headache.

Male sexual health is about more than an erection. It also includes interest, response, desire and satisfaction.

Researchers have found a safer way to treat erectile dysfunction and improve overall sexual health: an extract of a ginger-like root called Kaempferia parviflora. Long used in South Asia to improve male sexual function, this plants extract gently support increased blood flow to the penis while also enhancing brain responses to sexual stimuli.

Unlike pharmaceuticals, Kaempferia parviflora also improve response time to erotic stimuli and intercourse satisfaction. Noticeable results have been shown in as few as 30 days.

Erectile dysfunction is an important early warning sign for underlying cardiovascular disease, because it is an indicator of the functioning of vascular and endothelial processes. As a side-benefit, this ginger-like extract may also help protect against arterial stiffening throughout the body. It promotes nitric oxide, which relaxes blood vessels and enables efficient blood flow.

Water is the most important substance in the world. Drinking plenty of water on a daily basis is vital to our health. Water carries nutrients to cells, helps with digestion, flushes out toxins, helps prevent headache and fatigue, and can even aid in weight loss or maintenance. Our bodies are up to 75% water, and staying well-hydrated is critical to our optimum health and survival.

The plastic in bottled water often contains chemicals BPA and phthalates, which are proven to be hazardous to human health.

Tap water around the world has consistently been found to be subpar.

Kangen Water®️ begins as a tap water. The Enagic®️ machine filters out chlorine and other impurities from the tap water, then separates the hydrogen and oxygen with a process known as electrolysis. This process adds an electron to the hydrogen creating a new molecule called diatomic molecular hydrogen gas. When this is added to your drinking water, it produces antioxidant-rich Kangen Water®️

Kangen Water® is a healthy water for revitalized cells and a healthy alternative to regular tap and bottled water. You can try it in our medical center.

Genetic testing has made huge progress in preventive medicine. These blood tests are very reliable and now patients have the possibility to know whether they are at a certain level of risk concerning illnesses like:

  • Certain types of cancer
  • Cardiac diseases
  • High cholesterol predisposition
  • Neurology – Epilepsy
  • And more and more

If the results show a high risk for the patient, our physician will propose risk-reduction measures including:

  • More frequent surveillance options
  • Prophylactic surgery
  • Treatment guidance
  • Testing of first degree family members

But before doing any of these genetics tests, we advise our patients to have proper counseling with a physician and a geneticist to understand the consequences of such exams and its results. Are some patients ready to know that they have 85% risk to develop a breast cancer? Not all them.

Bacteria in our gut could impact our mental balance and especially the likelihood of suffering from depression, according to a study released Monday. The research, however, does not demonstrate a causal link.

A team of Belgian researchers analyzed the stool samples of more than 1000 volunteers and found that two families of bacteria were consistently fewer in depressed people, including those on antidepressant treatment.

The study of a control population of 1000 Dutch validated these findings of a statistical link between the number of certain bacteria and the level of well-being and mental health, explains the article published in the scientific journal “Nature Microbiology “.

The study does not show a cause-and-effect relationship, emphasizes Jeroen Raes, one of the lead authors. He added that the understanding of the links between gut and brain is just starting.

“Intriguing” idea

The families of bacteria concerned, Coprococcus and Dialister, are known to have anti-inflammatory properties. However, “it is known that nerve tissue inflammation plays an important role in depression. So, our hypothesis is that the two are linked in one way or another, ” said the professor of microbiology at KU Leuven University.

“The idea that substances from microbial metabolism can interact with our brain – and therefore with our behavior and feelings – is intriguing,” says Raes.

“So far, most of the studies have been on mice or a small number of people, and the results have been mixed and contradictory,” he said.

300 million people worldwide suffer from depression, according to the World Health Organization. Sometimes called a “silent epidemic”, this pathology is one of the main causes of the 800,000 suicides identified each year.

Antidepressants are currently among the most prescribed medications in many countries, but this research could pave the way for new types of treatment for this disease, says Raes.
