What is Your Health Worth to You?

June 5, 2016

what-is-your-health-worthGood health is priceless. Who doesn’t want to live to a ripe old age feeling vibrant, engaged and relevant? And guess what? The odds are in your favor. Statistics show that the population is not only living longer, but staying more active and vital well into their 80s, 90s and even 100s! So you are not alone in your quest for well-being.

Staying healthy, whatever your age, depends on a lot of different things—the kinds of food and chemicals you ingest, the amount of exercise you get, your attitude, and other influencers. In the center of all this is YOU. Your body, mind and spirit—everything that is uniquely you—is impacted each and every day by the choices you make and steps you take.

What is Your Health Worth?

Modern medicine is, fortunately, becoming more of a partner in your wellness and less of a mere band-aide for symptoms. Rather than solely providing sick care, it is transforming into a more preventive, proactive and participatory collaboration. The expanding arena of information technology is driving other changes too. Telemedicine, the cloud, smart devices and artificial intelligence are already revolutionizing diagnostics and treatment, as well as the future role of doctors, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies. These extraordinary changes mean that, down the road, you will enjoy greater control over your aging process.

In the meantime, be sure to invest in your health! Obviously, you want to eat a healthy diet, exercise, keep your brain active and maintain a spiritual practice. But, did you know that the right kind of hormone replacement can also be a really key investment in your present and future? Despite what you may have heard there is abundant research dating back to the 1940s to support the many health benefits of properly administered BHRT.

SottoPelle® calls it healing from the inside out. For decades we have treated tens of thousands of men and women using our proprietary, research-based pellet implant method. We’ve seen the remarkable results and heard patients thank us again and again for giving them back their lives, their relationships and their health. SottoPelle® has done wonders for people suffering from osteoporosis, Type 2 Diabetes, Parkinson’s and even TBI (traumatic brain injuries). It is our heartfelt mission to help you heal and live your best life possible.

So, check us out. You’ll be amazed at how, like so many others, you will actually feel like you’ve regained your life.

Autoimmune Thyroid Disease On the Rise

February 3, 2014

Thyroid_systemAutoimmune reactions to the thyroid gland go largely undetected and cause many deleterious health effects including unexplained fatigue, weight gain, infertility and depression. There are an estimated 13 million Americans each year that have this treatable condition that go undiagnosed and needlessly suffer.  And I predict that this number will rise dramatically, as we are exposed to more radiation and environmental toxins then ever before. Click here for a recent article on this topic published in the Journal of the Association for the Advancement of Restorative Medicine.  I have given lectures for thousands of physicians over the years on ways to properly diagnose and treat this condition, and hopefully their patients are benefiting from the training.  Our patients experience “miraculous” health benefits from proper treatment using prescription natural thyroid medication and simple diet and lifestyle changes. Their depression lifts, weight is no longer an issue, and energy levels rise.

Here’s to a healthy new you in the new year!

Thyroid and Infertility

January 6, 2014

happy_babyMillions of people worldwide suffer with infertility and recurrent miscarriage and in thousands of unexplained cases, hypothyroidism may be the underlying cause. The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists has warned that 1 in 10 Americans suffer from thyroid disease. Despite this staggering statistic, half of patients remain undiagnosed. Many of these people will be in their childbearing years.  Click here to read more about a news release on this topic.

What most doctors do not know is that the timing of when you test for and treat thyroid in pregnancy is crucial in preventing miscarriage.  The type of thyroid treatment is also essential to a healthy outcome.

I will be giving a talk in our medical practice on Wed January 29th at 6:30PM on integrative medical options for  fertility, and how to test for, and treat, thyroid imabalances throughout pregnancy.

Concierge Integrative Medical Services

November 4, 2012

Just a quick post to share my excitement as our medical practice expands to offer to our patients the only medical service of its kind in southern California.

As you know, I am passionate about integrative medicine, and after 15 years treating patients and teaching physicians how to practice this medicine, I am still in awe of the results that come with helping the body to heal itself.  There are natural options available for major health challenges, like depression, infertility, ADHD, hormone imbalance, memory loss, chronic pain, and rheumatoid arthritis.

I have been practicing concierge medicine with our high profile patients and am now offering this service to more people.

As a concierge patient you have the option for home visits, a private line to the doctor, help with shopping for the best foods for your body, and a more personal and direct relationship, the way medicine used to be practiced, when your doctor was also a family friend.

Read about our patients’ experiences to learn firsthand from others who have gotten results with the help of this medicine.

You can call our offices at 310-734-0950 (Beverly Hills) or 949-715-9321 (Newport Beach) for more info.

BPA Found to Affect Critical Hormones in Pregnant Women and Boys

October 4, 2012

A new study raises concern about the effects of BPA on thyroid hormone levels in pregnant women and in young boys.  BPA is found in plastic bottles, the lining of food and beverage cans, dental sealants and even in sales receipts.  Originally BPA was found to cause harmful synthetic estrogen-like effects.  Now we are learning that it impacts one of the most critical hormone groupings in pregnant women and children.  I teach physicians about testing newly pregnant women at a very specific time, for thyroid hormone levels (including TSH, Free T3, Free T4 and TPO Antibodies) because if left untreated, an imbalance in these hormones will lead to recurrent miscarriage, difficulty producing breast milk, and serious developmental challenges in a newborn.
