21st Century Breakthroughs in Integrative and Age Management Medicine

02/17/2016 - 12:35pm

21st Century Breakthroughs in Integrative and Age Management Medicine Often I am asked why I began the study of Age Management and Integrative Medicine. The truth is, initially it was out of self-preservation. Over fifteen years ago, I looked in the mirror, not liking what I saw: thinning hair, bulging tummy, and weight gain. I felt sluggish with low energy; my sexuality was in the dump. My doctor told me my blood pressure was up, my cholesterol was elevated, and if I didn’t change something I was heading for diabetes. My wife was worried. She also said I was becoming a curmudgeon. I was beyon...

12/29/2015 - 10:46am

"Losing weight can be a challenge,” so says Deborah L. Oleynik, ND. While this sounds more like a fact of life than a profound statement, anyone who has ever tried the simple formula of exercise more/eat less and failed, needs to also understand the symphony of hormones that are involved in metabolism. These metabolic hormones make up a complex resonance in which the absence or over-abundance of just one can make or break the outcome. Some of the better known players included in this orchestra are: growth hormone, insulin, thyroid, cortisol, testosterone, estrogen and a lesser known hormone, L...

Sex and the Female Brain

10/28/2015 - 4:00pm

     "He wants sex.  She wants romance."  So says John Gray, PhD in 'Mars and Venus in the Bedroom'.  Sometimes it seems as if our partners are from different planets.  In the bedroom, it is obvious that men and women are different, but we may not realize just how different.  It is only through understanding and accepting our obvious and less obvious differences that we can achieve true intimacy and great sex.¹      It's no secret that boys and girls are different and it's not only our outside appearance.  Our brains are hugely differ...

Secrets of Living Longer

09/01/2015 - 3:22pm

"Everyone wants to live longer and science is starting to make that happen. But living better will be the real challenge and "opportunity". In Time Magazine's article on the science of aging well, Laura L. Carstensen explains: “We live in extraordinary times. And thanks to medical and scientific advances that even a generation ago would have sounded like science fiction, our lives are getting longer. An American born today has a projected average life span 20 full years longer than one born in 1925, and we are, as a society, growing old.

Imagine you're trying out personal trainers. One is very aggressive and harsh, screaming at you to "Get on the ground and do push-ups NOW!"  The other is firm but encouraging, "I know you can do this, I believe in you!" We don't know about you, but we'd probably perform better with the encouraging trainer! Similarly, the skin responds more optimally when given the best possible treatment and respect.  Our skin absolutely has the capacity to heal itself, stop the clock on aging, and reverse past damage; we just have to nurture it the right way.  Every skin condition has a ro...
