  STUDY: Ageing as a Mindset: A Counterclockwise Experiment to Rejuvenate Older Adults

Harvard’s renowned 1979 “counterclockwise” study, showed how elderly men who lived for a week as though it was 1959 grew noticeably younger and healthier eg; vision, hearing, strength, and other abilities significantly improved. This important work provides us the first clear, scientific evidence that the biological clock can be reversed.

The ‘
Counterclockwise’ study, supervised by Dr Ellen Langer (now aged 72 and the longest serving Professor at Harvard University) shows us the ways in which our belief in physical limits constrains us; and demonstrates how our desire for certainty in medical diagnosis and treatment often prevents us from fully exploiting the power of uncertainty. The landmark program has now been successfully conducted in three countries (US, Great Britain, and South Korea) all yielding very powerful results for enhanced functioning for older adults.

This important study and other more recent studies (see below), hold enormously exciting and powerful keys for changing our general health—including old age, heart health, cancer, weight and vision—as well as for our fundamental happiness.


  Many similar studies have followed, such as a paper published in the journal Psychological Science that involved 84 hotel maids. The maids had reported that they didn’t get much exercise in a typical week. The researchers primed the chambermaids to think differently about their work by informing them that cleaning rooms was serious exercise. Once their expectations were shifted, the maids lost weight, relative to a control group (and also improved on other measures like body mass index and hip-to-waist ratio). All other factors were held constant. The only difference was the change in mind-set.

  The power of the mind to ease various afflictions.
In  a recent Type 2 Diabetes Study  — the subjects’ perception of how much time had passed was manipulated. The theory was that the diabetics’ blood-glucose levels would follow perceived time rather than actual time; in other words, they would spike and dip when the subjects expected them to. And that’s what the data revealed.

How each subject thought about time actually influenced the metabolic processes inside of their bodies. Anil Ananthaswamy (New Scientists journalist, Ted speaker and author of the Edge of Physics) writes that people between the ages of 40 and 80 tend to feel younger than their chronological age, while those in their 20's feel older.

This makes sense, as Robert Sapolsky (professor of biology, and professor of neurology and neurological sciences and neurosurgery, at Stanford University) points out in ‘Behave’: after the age of 30 our metabolism slows down, which skews our perception of time. Time actually feels different. What’s amazing about the research above is we have a conscious decision in how we feel about that.



Is it possible for people to decide to get well?
More studies have followed such as in 2014 when a number of healthy test subjects were given the mission to make themselves unwell. The subjects watched videos of people coughing and sneezing. No deception was involved. This was explicitly a test to see if they could voluntarily change their immune systems in measurable ways.

Following the experiment nearly half of the experimental group exhibited cold symptoms
and showed high levels of the IgA antibody (a sign of elevated immune-system response). Here was concrete proof that people could get sick or well through the power of their mindset.

Placebo effects have already been proven to work on the immune system. But this study clearly showed for the first time that they work in a different way — that is, through an act of will.

The Mind-Body Interface Conference Summary report 2017
Academy of Medical Sciences (comprising UK’s leading medical scientists from hospitals and academia).

Our brain's interface with our body.
“The vagus nerve comprises over 100,000 nerve fibres, of which 80% are sensory and connect the brain to almost every organ in the body. Professor Tracey explained that the vagus nerve is involved in normal physiology and homeostasis of most organs and the immune system.”

Research has shown how the immune system can be regulated by the brain via the Vagus Nerve.
A growing body of research has now shown that people's mindsets have driven placebo responses where a patient's health changes. This has also led researchers to consider how a placebo or mindset change can affect the vagus nerve. For example; recent clinical trials have shown how inflammatory markers have been reduced in inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. The Report concludes that as a change of mindset can affect connections in the brain that trigger a positive physiological outcome, other forms of mental stimulation such as cognitive behavioural therapy and mindfulness which can change a person’s perception, attitude and thinking should also be considered.

TNE (2018)
Therapeutic neuroscience education (TNE)
has been shown to be effective in the treatment of mainly chronic musculoskeletal pain conditions. Emerging research shows how patients who were shown how to change their mind-set regards pain produced impressive immediate and long-term changes, such as; decreased pain, improved function / movement and, increased calming of the brain (as seen on brain scans).

In summary, Therapeutic Neuroscience Education is now successfully used by some of the world's leading musculoskeletal clinics to change a patient’s perception of pain (change of mind-set) resulting in lower pain and increased mobility.

Your mindset can rewind aging, physically and mentally!
Florida State University College of Medicine psychologist and gerontologist Antonio Terracciano states subjective age is correlated with factors such as walking speed, lung capacity, grip strength, and bodily inflammation. As his work, among others, shows, it’s not necessarily the body influencing the mind. Your mindset about aging has an equally important role in aging. Terracciano's research has shown that this affects cognition: a belief in a higher subjective age correlates with cognitive impairments and even dementia.

So much can be revealed by how we talk about ourselves. How much emphasis do you place on numerical age? Do you believe age limits your physical and mental abilities? Is age an excuse for all the new things you don’t try? Do you spend more time reminiscing about what once was instead of planning on what’s to come? These questions and more are indicative of the mindset you have around age. And, as this research shows, it will affect how you actually age.

Taking Back Control of Your Life and Your Health..


Using the Mind-Body approach, health studies recently conducted aimed to improve disease outcomes by attention to symptom variability. Arthritis, chronic pain, als, tbi, prostate cancer, and ms have been shown to be amenable to this treatment. Studies with other disorders are now underway.

An intensive
,2 year study (still in progress -due to be completed early 2020),
lead by Dr Ellen Langer who supervised the seminal 1979 Counterclockwise Study, tests if a change of mind-set can shrink the tumours of cancer patients. Results to date are highly encouraging. Another ongoing study investigates whether mindfulness can slow progression of prostate cancer. Note: Martin Seligman, recognized as the father of positive psychology, calls Langer “the mother of positive psychology,” in recognition of her groundbreaking work, while others call her "the mother of mindfulness".

Today, neuroscientists are charting what’s going on in the brain when expectations alone reduce pain or relieve Parkinson’s symptoms. Many other experiments now focus on how changes in self-perception can generate positive, reversal changes in health.

Mind-body Unity
A “new alliance” between neuroscience and psychotherapy is now taking place
. Recent neuroscientific developments show that the mind is linked not only to the body but to specific neuronal brain structures. Neuroscientific explorations are also contributing concepts such as the relational mind, implicit memory, and mirror neurons. This new mind–body alliance has opened up new doors for understanding for both theory and practice how the mind can change the body.
