DESCRIPTION

Presentation on BioIdentical Hormone Therapy or Anti-Aging Medicine and how it can change your life like it has mine.

TRANSCRIPT

  • 1. Hormone Balance for Men and Women An Introduction to Age Management Medicine Paul Navar M.D.
  • 2. Age Management Medicine: A New Paradigm
    • Preventive/Health Based v. Disease Based
    • Orthomolecular vs. Pharmaceutical
    • Aging treated as a disease rather than a normal inevitable process
    • Optimal range v. normal range
    • Rejects the notion of class effect
  • 3. Where are you on the Health span Curve? Optimum Health Sub-optimum Health Undiagnosed Conditions Development Vitality Degeneration Morbidity Reserve Capacity (% of Maximum Function)
  • 4. Morbidity Extension keeps you alive with your diseases Morbidity Extension Reserve Capacity (% of Maximum Function)
  • 5. Morbidity Compression maximizes vitality & health span Morbidity Compression Vitality Extension Reserve Capacity (% of Maximum Function)
  • 6. Age Management Medicine: A New Paradigm
    • Preventive/Health Based v. Disease Based
    • Orthomolecular vs. Pharmaceutical
    • Aging treated as a disease rather than a normal inevitable process
    • Optimal range v. normal range
    • Rejects the notion of class effect
  • 7. Orthomolecular vs. Pharmaceutical Medicine
    • Orthomolecular Paradigm Find the biomolecular cause and correct it using bioidentical molecules
    • Pharmaceutical Paradigm Find a non-natural, patentable substance (possibly toxic) that will improve the disorder in some way
    • Pharmaceutical should be secondary to Orthomolecular, not primary
  • 8. The Problem with Pharmaceuticals
    • Alien molecules: body does not recognize them or know how to eliminate them
    • Negative functions: disrupt physiology by blocking receptors, inhibiting enzymes, etc.
    • Toxic: All have side effects and both known and unknown deleterious long-term effects (not true of bioidenticals !!)
  • 9. Bioidentical Hormones
    • Are chemically converted from yams or soy and are identical in composition to human hormones
    • Are not patentable
    • Have been used in Europe over 40 years
    • Have been extensively researched
    • Estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone are FDA approved
    • In balance, the do NOT have the same risks as CHRT
  • 10. Conventional Medicine
    • Too much information, not enough time to do independent research, super-specialization, not taught that way
    • Info. controlled by pharmaceutical corps who promote pharmaceutical paradigm and ignore or suppress non-patentable natural vitanutrients and hormones
    • Result: Unfounded fear of hormone optimization ; unfounded confidence in toxic drugs
  • 11. Age Management Medicine: A New Paradigm
    • Preventive/Health Based v. Disease Based
    • Orthomolecular vs. Pharmaceutical
    • Aging treated as a disease rather than a normal inevitable process
    • Optimal range v. normal range
    • Rejects the notion of class effect
  • 12. Conventional View of Hormones and Aging
    • The loss of hormones is adaptive helps us to live longer
    • Persistence of youthful levels of hormones would cause more heart attacks and cancers as we age
    • Losing our hormones is good for us
    • Pharmaceutical Agenda: Dont replace hormones; take a drug for every problem.
  • 13. Against the Conventional View
    • All animals designed/evolved with a limited lifetimea self-destruct program that kicks in at age 25 in humans
    • Aging is the degenerative disease that affects us all!
    • Cancers, heart attacks, autoimmune diseases, etc. occur years after hormone deficiencies begin and occur more often in people with lower hormone levels!
    • Studies of balanced BHRT show tremendous benefits with no proof of harm !!
  • 14. Age Management Medicine: A New Paradigm
    • Preventive/Health Based v. Disease Based
    • Orthomolecular vs. Pharmaceutical
    • Aging treated as a disease rather than a normal inevitable process
    • Optimal range v. normal range
    • Rejects the notion of class effect
  • 15. Conventional Thinking: The Tyranny of the Lab Report
    • Ranges are population stats , not optimals
    • Male free testosterone: 35-155 5x
    • Female free testosterone: 0.0-6.2
    • Free T3: 1.8-4.2 2.5x
    • TSH: 0.3-5 17x
    • If test is normalno diagnosis or Rx, pharmaceuticals for symptoms
    • If below normal, maybe to normal
  • 16. Age Management Medicine: A New Paradigm
    • Preventive/Health Based v. Disease Based
    • Orthomolecular vs. Pharmaceutical
    • Aging treated as a disease rather than a normal inevitable process
    • Optimal range v. normal range
    • Rejects the notion of class effect
  • 17. Common Sense Regarding Class Effect
    • Problems caused by hormone substitutes should not be attributed to our natural human hormones until proven otherwise .
    • Bioidentical hormone replacement to restore youthful levels and balance should be considered safe until proven otherwise !
  • 18. Components of Age Management Diet Hormone Therapy Conventional Treatments Exercise Supplements Lifestyle
  • 19. Age Management Medicine 5 Basic Principles:
    • Education and Knowledge enables self determination
    • Lifelong attention to diet and normal weight maintenance enables the reduction of chronic inflammation
    • Exercise promotes Health and Weight Maintenance
    • Nutritional/Nutraceutical therapies preferred; pharmaceuticals when indicated
    • Hormone modulation and replenishment with bio-identical hormones
  • 20.
  • 21. Hormones
    • Intercellular communication devices
    • Travel via blood to cells receptors
    • Control cells proliferation, protein manufacture, metabolic rate, etc.
    • Most powerful molecules in biology
    • Optimal levels essential for health and quality of life
  • 22.
  • 23. Hormonal Decline With Aging
    • Hormones that build tissues and improve immunity decline with age by 50-80% (DHEA, Testosterone, HGH)
    • Progesterone starts to decline at age 30.
    • Estradiol disappears at 50menopause.
    • Thyroid hormone production and sensitivity decline with age
    • Insulin output and sensitivity declines Diabetes
    • By age 50 weve
