  • Alleviating The Symptoms Of An Aging Prostate

    Alleviating the symptoms of an aging prostate By Leslie J. Farer   Growing bald isn't the only unwelcome sign of advancing years; for most men, aging also goes hand in hand with bothersome lower urinary tract symptoms: night time awakenings for trips to the bathroom, the sudden and frequent urge to urinate, painful urination, even erectile dysfunction.   At the root of these issues may be the progressive enlargemen...
  • Living to Ninety Years and Beyond

    Living to Ninety Years and Beyond “In ancient times the people lived to be over one hundred years, yet they remained active and did not become decrepit in their activities.” Nei Chin Su Wen, The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine, circa 2600 B.C. Even without using anti-aging medicine, it is possible to live beyond ninety years and do so in good health if you live a lifestyle indigenous to various islands such as Ok...
  • Is Reversing Aging Degenerate?

    Is Reversing Aging Degenerate? By Dr. Richard Lippman Since the serialization of Oscar Wilde’s novel “The Picture of Dorian Gray” in the 1890s, the idea of staying forever young while an oil painting grew older was condemned as degenerate. Indeed, several years later Wilde was imprisoned for his alleged degeneracies. Then, in 1945, Albert Lewin’s film adaptation of the novel was poorly received given the attitudes about aging and morality at that time. In 19...
  • Vasopressin, the Blood Pressure and Libido Hormone

    Vasopressin, the Blood Pressure and Libido Hormone Mark had a medical problem but he refused to visit a doctor because he considered many of them to be quacks. Thus, he continued to suffer poor erections despite self-dosing with copious amounts of Viagra® and Cialis®. His blood pressure was low and he was dehydrated because he urinated frequently at night. Eventually, Mark’s wife convinced him to see me and I meticulously questioned and examined him. Mark was the kind of...
  • A clash between a frustrated medical community and alternative medicine

    A clash between a frustrated medical community and alternative medicine For more than 25 years, the American medical community has been dismayed by an ever-increasing number of patients who turn to alternative medicine for treatment. Indeed, more than half of sick Americans seek alternative doctors, such as naturopaths, and few of these patients discuss their treatments with their conventional doctors. This phenomenon is especially true of chronic sufferers of cancer, chroni...
  • Is Your Brain Clearing Beta-Amyloid, the Leading Cause of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s?

    Is Your Brain Clearing Beta-Amyloid, the Leading Cause of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s? “When we skip sleep, we may be doing irreparable damage to the brain prematurely aging it. . .” M. Nedergaard, MD Until a few years ago, scientists thought that the brain did its own cleaning and recycling of waste both day and night. However, Professor Steven Coles of Stanford University has established that beta amyloid clearance in seniors is highly inefficient and incom...
  • ‘Cowboy Medicine’ Saves Lives in Sweden (It May Save Your Life in Years to Come)

    ‘Cowboy Medicine’ Saves Lives in Sweden (It May Save Your Life in Years to Come) In recent years, I have saved countless lives in Sweden and elsewhere by practicing a non-conventional type of medicine that I call ‘cowboy medicine.’ By cowboy medicine, I mean that I felt compelled to take unconventional steps to save lives in the hospital system. These steps definitely broke the regulations of most hospitals, but I was forced into this position by antiquated procedures follow...
  • Getting the Most Out of BHRT

    It’s Simple Really: Just Follow Mother Nature’s Hormone Recipe Many doctors and patients think they are using genuine BHRT just by taking pills containing bio-identical estradiol and progesterone. Although estradiol is the primary estrogen produced by the premenopausal ovary, normal metabolic processes eventually result in three primary circulating estrogens: estriol, estradiol, and e...
  • Avoiding A Hospital Bed

    Avoiding A Hospital Bed My biochemist friend and patient, Bob, phoned me recently. In an urgent voice, he requested an immediate appointment. I was a bit surprised because several times previously he wanted to use only his traditional physician, who was covered by his medical insurance. I made the appointment for the following afternoon, wondering why Bob suddenly wanted my help. The next day, Bob arrived in my office, flustered and haggard from lack of sleep. He explained t...

  • Some Highlights of the 2011 London Medical Conference

  • Health care bogged down by ‘old think’

    Health care bogged down by ‘old think’ Practical mindedness avoids ‘Old Think’ For the last three hundred years, Americans have been admired for their practical mindedness. For example, in the middle of the eighteenth century, Benjamin Franklin established an efficient postal and public library system that allowed rapid dissemination of news and information throughout the colonies. Other countries had no such systems and no interest in a more literat...
  • Avoiding Uterine, Breast, and Prostate Cancers the Smart Way

    Avoiding Uterine, Breast, and Prostate Cancers the Smart Way I arrived at a physician colleague’s office early in the morning, bursting with excitement to tell him the latest findings on cancers which were still unknown to the media. I summarized recent research about excessive cell growth and the accompanying uterine, breast, and prostate cancers. My colleague was in no mood for excitement early in the morning. He hadn’t had his morning cup of java, so he demanded that ...
  • Outdated Doctors Refuse Patients with Fatigue and Hormone Problems

    Outdated Doctors Refuse Patients with Fatigue and Hormone Problems I was shocked when I read the lead medical article in the March 4 edition of the Swedish equivalent of JAMA.¹ Five Swedish endocrinologists (hormone doctors)* were petitioning the Swedish FDA to stop all advanced testing and treatment of fatigue and other thyroid problems in Sweden! Apparently, these five conventional medical doctors were only treating very severe problems, such as Addison’s and Cushi...
  • Low Testosterone - The Unsuspected Epidemic

    Low Testosterone - The Unsuspected Epidemic There are more than forty million men in the U.S. suffering from low levels of testosterone. But the vast majority of them don't even know it. As the tremendous popularity of Viagra ® suggests, many of these men are experiencing symptoms of male sexual dysfunction. Others find themselves fighting more subtle battles against obesity, fatigue, depression and insomnia-common symptoms of low testosterone that most doctors overlook or at...

  • Natural Triple Estrogen and Progesterone for Women

      NATURAL TRIPLE ESTROGEN AND PROGESTERONE FOR WOMEN By Jonathan Wright MD   "To stay healthy, observe and follow nature." Physicians and master healers have made this statement for literally thousands of years, in many languages and variations. It remains true today.
