The first stage of the practical scientific project “Nature, Ecology, Longevity” was successfully concluded with the interviewing of 31 centenarians and analyses by Prof. Ignatov. Mountain springs were also researched.
Prof. Ignatov states"Before I met the centenarians, my notion was by and large theoretical. I thought I would meet people overridden with diseases and with no will to live. Yet the surprises started right away. The first centenarians turned out to be people in good health. Out of 31 people interviewed, 27 were perfectly healthy. "

1. The first conclusion is that it is almost incredible for a person to reach the age of 100 if this person has suffered from many diseases in his youth. 

Diseases can be either hereditary or due to an erroneous way of life. Aging is related to the accumulation of errors in DNA replication. Replication is the distribution of the genetic material from one mother into two daughter cells. Free radicals influence unfavorably this process. It is a well-known fact that after 75-85 years human body cells have a very small part of the information for DNA replication. With aging, errors inDNA replication increase way faster compared to the years of youth. But Nature likes to joke every now and then. There are 4 centenarians who make this conclusion inconsistent. This shows that the organism has a great longevity potential. 

2. The second conclusion is that positive attitude prolongs life 

I was very much impressed by the fact that all centenarians were full of vitality and had a positive attitude towards life. This year for the first time I saw in PNAS (the magazine of the American Academy of Sciences) the results for the influence of stress on the immune system. Men have it tougher. From the 31 persons interviewed, only four were men. Are meditations and walks enough to lower stress levels? There are secrets in human biochemistry. A result analysis shows that men predominate among the parents and grandparents of the centenarians. In the modern world men are subjected to a very serious stress. 

3. The weight of all centenarians has been normal throughout their life 

There is scientific evidence that when weight is within normal limits, the organism goes into an “energy-saving” mode. Is food enough to correct our weight? My experience with 8 lost kg and optimal cholesterol levels show that food is only a part of this process.

4. Smoking is not a road to longevity

Only one of the centenarians has smoked for several years. Smoking is one of the reasons for the increase of free radicals and thence cancer. Cancer is the antipode of longevity. Malignant tumors are the result of accumulation of errors in DNA replication, in the cases of longevity errors are accumulated much slower. With our training I intend to help ourselves and many others for cancer prophylaxis with natural methodics. 

5. Some people say “Well, yes, but this centenarian has a good heredity”

This is true, but in the testing of 31centenarians it turned out that this percentage is not that big. From these 31 people, 14 have good heredity, 17 don’t have parents or grandparents that have lived over 90. The control group consists of the brothers and sisters of the centenarians. Same genome, different way of life with factors that do not benefit health. The average life span of the centenarians is 95,6 years, and of their brothers and sisters – 77,7 years. The interviews with the centenarians made me think about life values because for each and every one of us this is the only life we have. I personally will try to help many people to rethink their lives. I know that it is hard to overcome inertia, to come out of your comfort zone, with all commodities. But more often than not these commodities do not benefit our health.

6. What is the influence of mountain water and clean air

The biggest surprise came when in the mountainous parts of the municipalities where the project was finished, there were about twice as many centenarians as in the field areas. For distances up to 50-70 km the only difference is mountain water and air. The average age of centenarians in mountainous areas is 94.3, and in field areas – 90.6 The difference is 3.7. The oldest resident in the mountainous areas is 104, and in field areas – 97. What kind of water should we drink in big cities, how to prepare “active” water, can we improve DNA replication with water? The accomplishment of Prof. Ignatov and Ass. Prof. Mosin is very topical with regard to the indirect impact of magnesium, manganese and zinc from mountain water on the antioxidant activity of enzymes in the human body.

7. How can we overcome factors that are hardly compatible with longevity?

Here is one of the biggest secrets. We give examples of centenarians from the mountains, but we live in the modern world. However, they do not have quick access to medical services and have not had a medical test for years. Early medical prevention is one of the keys to longevity. Here is some data on the subject by the National Statistical Institute, Bulgaria. In Bulgaria the average life expectancy from 1935 to 1939 was 51.75, while from 2008 to 2010 it was 73.60.


You are all invited to a practical seminar-interview in Teteven (June 8-16) (Villa Cherven). I will be glad to have with you a positive discussion on the subject, which also demonstrates a high level of spirituality and care for our health. Over the years I became convinced that applying energy techniques in closed spaces, lack of movement due to continuous work in front of a computer, driving everywhere, etc. is apparently not an optimal model for a full and healthy life.

Mountain spring “Kalinovoto”, 

Program for the practical scientific project “Nature, Ecology and Longevity”

Introduction – factors of longevity. They are heredity, disease prevention, absence of stress, physical activity, normal weight, clean mountain water and air, quality food.

1. How can one achieve longevity? Why is longevity predetermined by our way of life in our youth? Preventing disease and heredity. What are the sensations that indicate there may be a disease.
2. Why most centenarians live in the mountains? Mountain water – life force. The human body contains about 48-54% water, and at birth it is about 75%. With age, water in the body decreases. How to optimize the drinking of water. Preparation of quality water in cities.
3. Physical activity – a way to longevity. Exercises with the original methodology of Doncho Krastev “Dance of the Spiral”. How to maintain normal body weight.
4. Free radicals age us. Lifestyle, exercise and foods that reduce free radicals.
5. Positive attitude towards life extends it. Stress is also biochemistry. Vitamins and minerals, which improve the status of the nervous system. Ways to reduce toxic substances in the human body.

The program includes two short mountain routes and discussions.
