I am board-certified, specializing in anti-aging medicines, internal medicine, and cardiology. Using anti-aging medicine, which is integrative and preventive medicine, I cured my cancer twelve years ago and reversed my heart disease six years ago.
I am now a leader in the anti-aging revolution. It has now been practiced around the world for the last twenty years in 110 nations by at least 26,000+ physicians worldwide.
I am proud to say that I was one of the first physicians in the United States to receive my certification by the American Board of Anti-Aging Medicine and I have been an oral examiner, giving oral board certifications to doctors around the world. I have dedicated my life to education, bringing new technologies and anti-aging issues and therapies to myself, my family, my friends, and my patients.
Anti-aging medicine is a clinical specialty that specializes on prevention, early detection, and reversal of age-related disease.
I feel that it has been the most important new model for healthcare in this century. You owe it to yourselves and to loved ones to take full advantage of everything that the anti-aging revolution can offer and the good news is that it can offer it now.
Today’s scientists know much more about how the body deteriorates and how our bodies get diseased. The point to remember closely is that aging is not inevitable and, for the first time in human history, due to new medical breakthroughs, we have uncovered new information about the keys to aging, that is, the biochemical keys and genetic keys we can now truly stop or even reverse the aging process.
The baby-boomers (those born between 1946 and 1964), like me, have looked at the traditional medical paradigms used by traditional doctors and are not happy. It is costly and ineffective.
There is no mention of prevention. We baby-boomers are demanding a new approach to aging. What is important to me and to my patients is being functional and having the ability to enjoy our lives. I want to rectangularize my lifespan and of my patients, that is to say, I want to live a long life and die of a sudden death.
All diseases essentially fall into four major categories.
There are a few that are inherited genetic diseases, there are infections, and there is trauma. These do not account for much of the cost of treatment in the United States, only approximately 10%.
Ninety percent of all health care dollars are spent on diseases of aging and most is spent in the last two to three years of life on chemotherapy, intensive care unit visits, and costly medication. Since I have been so sick and cured myself using this new scientific anti-aging medication, my desire now is to teach others what I have learned.
It is a combination of genes, toxins, and biochemical individuality, that is to say, we are all different in our genes, that is, our book of life is different.
In order to lead a long, healthy life, our good genes must be expressed and our bad genes must be silenced. This is the new frontier of epigenomics where you are in control you are in the driver’s seat. You can influence your outcome and the diseases you will get. No longer are we genetically hardwired.
Our diet, our lifestyle, vitamins, rest, relaxation, and exercise all can turn on good genes and shut off bad genes.
As a physician who had cancer and heart disease, I am in a good position to read all the new medical research and attend all the meetings that are relevant to aging.
The reason I do this is selfish. First of all, it is for myself. Every meeting I go to, I learn something that can extend and prolong my life. Next in line are the people I love and my patients. I feel that having gone through cancer and heart disease I should pass my wisdom on to others. It is my passion to deliver excellent medical care.
My passion is to learn about these natural breakthroughs and then use them on myself, my patients, and others. I have been using these protocols for approximately twenty years to reverse many of my own health problems. This science is now showing us how to slow and even reverse our biologic clocks, that is, to make us biologically younger.
Yes, you can reverse the clock, you can slow down your biologic ticker, and actually get younger.
I feel it is no longer acceptable for me as a doctor to dismiss my patients’ aches and pains and telling them that they’re “getting old,” that this is “normal.”
I feel the gradual deterioration of the body is not normal and I attempt to maximize our lifespan and reverse our diseases or even prevent them before they occur.
LET’S DISCUSS SOME OF THE REASONS WE AGE
1. Free radicals or Oxidation
Free radicals occur several million times a second. They are very dangerous and bad molecules and most of them occur in our mitochondria. The mitochondria are little batteries in our bodies that give us energy and
metabolize protein, carbohydrates, and fats. We need them for our existence. When the free radicals are too high, the batteries can’t work. Our bodies cause abnormal proteins, fats, and destruction of cell membranes. There
is actually destruction of our own DNA, that is, our own genes, and all this causes our bodies to self-destruct and, if they don’t self-destruct, these abnormal cells after mutating become cancerous. Please realize that free
radicals are the basis of every disease process we have, starting from Alzheimer’s to stroke to heart to diabetes to arthritis, colitis, and cancer.
I measure these free radicals routinely in my office. To squelch these free radicals and have good levels are essential to our health. By measuring the amount of oxidation and free radicals as well as mutation in the cells as well
AS vitamin and mineral levels and toxins, a personalized program is instituted for every patient. Remember, without these batteries, the first sign is fatigue, then comes weight gain, then comes high blood pressure, then
comes heart disease, then comes Alzheimer’s, then comes cancer. I am trying to tell you ALL DISEASE starts as free radical damage. Don’t you think you should have your free radicals checked and don’t you think you should treat them?
Inflammation is a chronic total body inflammation, which is usually a defense to a specific agent such as infection with bacteria, fungus, virus, a toxin such as a heavy metal, or electromagnetic radiation, or some type of
injury. Poor nutrients and poor diet can also cause this. It also is associated with diseases of aging, such as cancer, heart attacks, Alzheimer’s, allergies, autoimmune, poor healing, kidney disease, essentially all diseases that
free radicals cause. Of course, I measure inflammation in all my patients; it is part of the routine workup. I then use natural antiinflammatories to lower or find out why they are high in the first place.
Glycation is where a molecule of sugar and a molecule of protein fuse and crosslink together. What happens is that the tissues get stiff and tough and they make these toxins called advanced glycation end-products, which are
extremely toxic to the body, and they also generate more free radicals and more inflammation. Glycation is especially seen in diabetics, people with insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, lens cataracts, heart disease, kidney
disease, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s. You need to learn how to cook foods at a low temperature, avoid blackened foods and fried foods. There are several tests I perform in the office to see the amount of glycation; this is then
treated with lifestyle changes in addition to nutraceuticals and hormones.
4. Hormone decline
Growth hormone, testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, pregnenolone, DHEA, cortisol, aldosterone, melatonin, and thyroid act as an orchestra, keeping our bodies optimum. I use only natural bioidentical hormones after t
Testing each patient’s levels. All levels are checked with a 24-hour urine, saliva, or blood. After extensive testing, hormones are instituted to maintain optimal levels. I myself have been on hormones for fifteen years. They
have lowered my blood pressure, I have lost fifty pounds, lowered my cholesterol, lowered my blood sugar, improved my memory, burned fat, and improved my osteoporosis. Did you know that hormones lower inflammation
and free radicals and they actually grow new brain cells, new bone,
