As always we are working to provide you with the very best and cutting edge of medicine and anti-aging. To stay up to date I was able to attend the A4M (American Academy of Anti-Aging) conference in Chicago. While there I also completed my Fellowship Certificate in Integrative Cardiology! Be sure to stay tuned for new and upcoming info and programs on the prevention of heart disease.
I also just wanted to share with you a few interesting tidbits about health that will make you think and hopefully improve your health.
When talking about nutrition, most Americans only eat 5 different meals per week and they just continue rotating those same 5 meals over and over. Get out of the food rut and try new recipes, your body and taste buds will thank you. Part of this is if you are eating the same meals over and over you are getting the same vitamin and nutrient combinations over and over again. Your body does much better on small amounts of a wide variety of complex nutrients rather than high doses of a few. There was a great quote from Dr. Deanna Minich one of the presenters, Eat the Rainbow – Not skittles. Be sure to be eating from the full spectrum of fruits and vegetables getting a wide variety of types and colors. 10-12 servings of vegetables and fruit per day.
It turns out that there is a scientifically proven most effective exercise program called the Scientifically proven 7 min workout session. You do as many reps as possible for 30 seconds of each of the following different exercises. This program is a great place to start if you are just starting back on your exercise program.
Also, the presenters focused on Diabetes, pre-Diabetes, Insulin Sensitivity, Metabolic Syndrome and how to detect and prevent progression of these conditions. One important factor is comparing Leptin to Adiponectin. High levels of leptin and low adiponectin can lead to inflammation, decreased insulin sensitivity and progressing heart disease. This balance is important in healthy blood sugar levels and in your cardiovascular system.
The key in true prevention of cardiovascular disease is looking beyond the basic top 5 conventional risk factors (blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity and smoking) and at the whole person to find all the related risk factors for that individual and help their body heal. Even when it comes to the basic risk factors mentioned above conventional care has dropped the ball by focusing on band-aid medications and treatments that focus on improving numbers but don’t change the long-term outcome for the patient.
And finally, I was able to get more information on two more exciting therapies that we will be bringing to the office in the future. The first is shockwave therapy, which has indications for musculoskeletal pain, cellulite reduction and Erectile dysfunction. The second is peptide therapy. Peptide Therapy along with stem cell treatments are the future of anti-aging medicine. The use of peptides can amplify natural pathways that already exist in the body to stimulate amazing results including rapid healing, regeneration, reversing aging, improved memory and more. Stay tuned for more information on these amazing therapies in the near future.
And to finish I wanted to personally invite you and your family and friends to our open house next week on Wednesday September 27th from 4-7 pm. We will have info sessions on Stem Cell therapy, ALMI all-natural aesthetic treatments, CoolSculpting and more (as well as discounted prices). Call our office to RSVP or you can check our website.
