Spiraling Physical and Mental Decline

Can Be Reversed:

Anti-aging researchers tell us that the human body is designed to live well beyond the 100-year mark. They frequently cite the longevity of the Hunzas, or other tribal peoples in the mountains of Eastern Europe or South America. Reportedly these peoples were strong and vibrant into their second century and able to perform a hard day’s work until just before death.

I spent a good 15 months devising a product which will help increase stress resilience and reduce mitochondrial damage. My product is called Invigoral and can be found here and here

The next few blog entries will be chapters of the blooklet I created about Invigoral:

New Hope and Help for an
Age Old (Old Age) Problem

Cancer rates have skyrocketed, we are seeing cancers in younger and younger patients every year. It has become the new normal.

While many experts will tell you if you live long enough you develop cancer, it wasn’t always like this.

The focus in mainstream medicine is to state cancers are unrelated to each other and have specific genetic markers. While on one hand, this is correct, it is also misleading.

It seems as though every week I am seeing new patients in my Chicago area office, with a complex of bizarre symptoms. The common denominator is a recent Gardisil vaccination.

Gardisil is a vaccine produced by Merck with the implication it will prevent cervical cancer. Cervical cancer is the 19th leading cause of cancer death among women in the US and in other countries where cervical screening is the norm.

The patients who suffer adverse reactions to this vaccine often present in specific ways;

Illinois has recently passed a bill allowing the use of medical marijuana for very specific conditions. And, unlike other states with similar bills, registered users may not grow their own plants. They must buy their supply from a designated dispensary and that dispensary only.

Marijuana or Cannabis, is still on the DEA schedule as a schedule 1 drug. This classification is for substances with no medical uses. This could not be farther from the truth.

Cannabis has an abundant amount of compounds which have amazing and beneficial effects. Some of the most amazing effects include reduction of microglial activation and tightening of the blood brain barrier. Microglia are immune cells in the brain, which when activated, are equivalent to inflammation and set up a bad domino affect in terms of oxidative damage. Chronic microglial activation has been implicated in a number of neurodegenerative diseases.

Yes, the title of this blog entry is provocative, it is provocative for a reason.

I am tired of hearing about cancer patients dying because they were told there was nothing they could do, or they agreed to the standard treatment even if that treatment didn’t have good statistics associated with it.

It is important to understand how cancer cells proliferate in order to understand why something so simple as staying on a ketogenic diet can keep cancer at bay.

The concept of a Ketogenic diet has been around for decades and was historically recommended to treat intractable seizures. The initial iteration was yukky! All cream, butter, margarine, corn oil, mayonnaise and nothing tasty, interesting or very healthy. Ketogenic diets have come a long way, and the concept of eating low carbohydrates and higher fat is on a roll and gaining speed.

The term “ketogenic” means the body is using ketone bodies (produced from fatty acids) for cellular fuel (atp production), in place of glucose.

Under normal circumstances, your body maintains a glucose level; which hovers around 80-90. Glucose is extracted from carbohydrates and can be created from proteins via a process known as gluconeogenesis, which takes place in the liver. This is an important piece of information as many patients think protein is a “free” food, meaning unlimited quantity. Many think they are adopting a ketogenic diet, but don’t understand why they either don’t lose weight, improve their lipid profiles or drop their elevated blood glucose levels. In actuality, they are eating too much protein and converting the excess to glucose.

In the early nineties, the buzz word for anyone seeking out alternative views on chronic illness was candidiasis. Candidiasis is an overgrowth of Candida, a yeast that is normally present in our environment but is opportunistic and can overgrow when normal bacteria are missing or reduced.

Candida was blamed for everyone presenting with chronic inflammation, chronic fatigue and food intolerance.

It is true that antibiotic use can lead to an overgrowth of Candida, and it is true that antibiotics are over prescribed. But, often patients would not improve on treatments to reduce Candida and they were subjected to months of medications and highly restricted diets.

I have always taken pride in the natural looking results I achieve in the aesthetic work I perform on my patients.

If you are someone who wants to look frozen in time and would rather have a bizarre looking upper lip than vertical lines, I am not your woman. However, if you just want to look a little lifted and refreshed, with no obvious “work” done, I am, or should be, your first choice.

I don’t like using copious amounts of botox on my patients because I have seen what constant paralysis of muscles does to the shape of the face. I also prefer not to fill in smile lines in the midface as this creates distortion. I do like to rejuvenate the upper midface to give a lift to the cheeks, which reduces the smile lines without distortion.

Most patients with chronic complaints, describe feelings or sensations in the body of generalized anxiety.

Whether their list of complaints include things like insomnia, hot flashes, tingling in their extremities, irritable bowel. Or, more specifically, chronic back pain, an inability to move past an injury, or issues in a relationship, the one thing in common is an associated underlying anxiety.

Anxiety in it’s pure form and in it’s disguises, can be quite crippling. So much energy is expended trying to “move past’ or “deal” with the sensations, it often leaves the person physically and emotionally depleted and, often with a sense of isolation.
