5 Natural Ways to Manage Insomnia

Nutrients and herbs, combined with lifestyle changes, can help you manage chronic insomnia.

Insomnia is a sleep disorder characterized by difficulty falling or staying asleep, or non-restorative sleep. Insomnia that occurs most nights and lasts a month or more is considered chronic insomnia.

Do you suffer from chronic insomnia? We recommend assessing your hormone levels, specifically pregnenolone, DHEA, total estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and TSH. Next, work with your health care provider to replace deficient hormones, and use melatonin and other supplements that can calm your body and help restore dominance of the parasympathetic nervous system at night.

Melatonin is the hormone that regulates the bodys biological clock. As we age, our bodies produce less melatonin, which can lead to difficulty sleeping. Many people take supplemental melatonin at bedtime to help them fall asleep. The recommended dose of melatonin ranges from 0.3 to 6 mg, depending on individual needs.

Many herbs and nutrients may help manage insomnia, used either alone or in combination with prescription medications. They include:

  • SAMe
  • B vitamins
  • Inositol
  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids
  • Magnesium
  • Kava
  • Essential Oils (Lavender and Lemon Balm)
  • Valerian
  • Chamomile

In addition to these herbs and nutrients, you can try to improve your sleep by:

  • Avoid stimulating drugs, caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol late in the day. If you use medications that may be stimulating, take them long before bedtime.
  • Try not to take naps during the day.
  • Avoid eating a large meal in the evening.
  • Exercise regularly, but try not to exercise close to bedtime.
  • Reduce stress levels by listening to relaxation tapes, taking warm baths, and meditating.

Transformation Tuesday: How Sue’s Life Changed After DzLogic

It is sad to say, but lying on a pillow on the couch and in pain is where my family usually saw me. I put that pillow away and am now living my life.

I would love to tell you about my experiences with DzLogic. As a polio survivor I assumed my life would be one of pain, sleepless nights, and continuing weakness. I have a family history of diabetes, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, and joint replacements. I had been diagnosed with post-polio fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, and chronic fatigue syndrome and my cholesterol was also high. The fatigue, muscle, and joint pain were severe. I also had had migraines for 38 years with them being daily for 23 years, and my immune system was non-existent. I had almost continuous infections for years.  

I am so glad that after hearing about DzLogic and learning about physiologic medicine that I made the choice to start the Program. It was one of the best decisions of my life. I heard about Dr. Dzugan, and after reading his books and scientific articles it made sense that there was a hormonal connection to migraine and other health issues. I started the Program, hoping to help the migraines, and I am amazed that all the other issues have been resolved as well. I was on antibiotics the year preceding starting DzLogic 11 times and have not had to take them since starting the Program 2.5 years ago! I have gone from 30 severe migraines a month to an occasional mild headache and went from 4 to 5 hours of fitful sleep to 8 to 9 hours of deep sleep each night. The fatigue and pain are gone. My outlook on life is great, my mind is sharp, and it is comforting to know that I have one of the foremost leaders in the world on my side, Dr. Dzugan. Before I started the DzLogic Program, I was given a pillow for my birthday. It is sad to say, but lying on a pillow on the couch and in pain is where my family usually saw me. I put that pillow away and am now living my life. God bless you Dr. Dzugan, the Scientific Team and all who were involved in helping me regain my health.

Are You Flushing Your Money Down The Toilet?

This entry is part 7 of 7 in the series What is DzLogic?

Do you know what supplements to take? We’ve made the process Simple!

People just like you will spend over $34 Billion dollars this year on vitamins and nutritional supplements.

Is it possible you’re throwing money away on unnecessary products like millions of other people do every day?

You already know that the food supply in the US has lost a lot of its nutritional value over the years as mega-farms and super fertilizers produce more and more of less and less real benefit to our bodies. And, you’re obviously concerned about your long-term health or you wouldn’t be reading this, right?

If you are a DzLogic member, you are already on a Program that has been custom designed for you including vitamins, minerals, herbal extracts, probiotics and/or ‘superfoods’ to optimize your personal body chemistry. These non-prescription elements of a DzLogic Program are just as important as the prescription bioidentical hormones we use. They are a major part of what allows us to generate fantastic results.

What sets DzLogic Apart?

Our non-prescription elements are also what set us apart from the local physicians who offer some limited hormone therapies. These are hard working doctors who are fine for what they do, but they don’t have our team of body chemistry experts with over 100 years of combined experience designing a personalized Program for you.

When taking vitamins and supplements, to achieve optimal results it is absolutely vital that you know:

  1. Which supplements are right for you.
  2. How much to take (the proper dosage).
  3. The right time of day to take each one.

Unfortunately, your local doctor doesn’t have time to go into all of that for you and realistically, most aren’t as highly trained in physiology (human body chemistry) as Dr. Dzugan’s team. So you end up left at the mercy of the local store clerk’s expertise or some late night infomercial. It all “sounds” good, but how do you know what’s really right for you?

Our DzLogic Programs do wonderful things for people’s health & lives, but they also include a fair amount of expense when you include doctor office visits, prescriptions and more. Over the years, many people have asked if we could put a “simpler” program together for them. These people were not ready to make the commitment that our full Restorative Medicine Program required, yet understood the benefits of taking vitamins and supplements.

In order to create a high-level, personalized solution, we had Dr. Dzugan and his scientific staff create Simple by Dzugan PhysioLogic.

Now you can have the very same world-renowned experts that create our high-end Programs create a non-prescription Program just for you.

Simple – No doctor visits, no blood tests, and no prescriptions. Just the best in vitamins, minerals, herbal extracts, probiotics, superfoods and/or non-prescription hormones and precursors like pregnenolone and DHEA.

Every Simple by Dzugan PhysioLogic Program is custom-made for you alone, based on an extensive health questionnaire. Like all of our Programs, it is interactive and it evolves over time as your body changes.

What kind of results can a DzSimple Program deliver? Judge for yourself!

Because every person’s body chemistry is different, we work closely with you to develop a personalized program that improves your overall Quality of Life.

Transformation Tuesday: Polly’s Story

Thank you for the excellent quality of life I am enjoying!

 

Polly A. started the Dzugan PhysioLogic Program two years ago and feels like a new woman today! Read her story:

“Since starting on the Dzugan program two years ago, I have noticed an increase in my stamina. Even my trainer at the gym and my chiropractor have commented on my increased strength and muscle tone. I began the program as a preventative measure. I’m 67 years old and a lot of my friends and family members are in poor health and on a lot of prescription medicines. I didn’t want that for myself since I know there are a lot of side effects with those medicines. I try to live a healthy lifestyle and eat well. This program fits into my lifestyle perfectly. Thank you for helping me be the best I can be and for the excellent quality of life I am enjoying!

Think Restorative Medicine is Too Good To Be True? Decide For Yourself!

This entry is part 6 of 7 in the series What is DzLogic?

What would you like your body to heal itself from?

What can Restorative Medicine have an impact on? That depends on when you started to feel the symptoms. If you started feeling it after the age of 35, the DzLogic Program can probably help – a lot!

Dr. Dzugan divides illness into 4 categories.

  1. Congenital – things you’re born with.
  2. Infectious – bacteria, virus, or some other outside element invading your body.
  3. Trauma – the result of physical injury.
  4. Acquired Errors of Body Chemistry

DzLogic can help with the first three, but what we primarily do is fix “Acquired Errors of Body Chemistry.” Those errors can be responsible for a vast array of disease states when your body’s systems begin to break down as you age.

The man who introduced me to Dr. Dzugan is a perfect example. Jimmy had been given a death sentence by conventional medicine. He had a combination of heart failure, diabetes, leukemia, potential prostate cancer and more. His doctors told him there was nothing they could do for him and told him to put his affairs in order.

When I first met Jimmy, he was a couple of years past his projected death. I saw angiogram videos showing that blood flow had actually improved around his heart. His diabetes was under control and his leukemia had effectively gone into remission. He was back to work full time after going on total disability years earlier. As a bonus, he lost 100 lbs. and his ED issues had disappeared as well!

How did the Dr. Dzugan make that happen? By doing the same thing we do for all of our members — we simply work on optimizing your body chemistry and your body can then heal itself.

That is the DzLogic Program.

What would you like your body to heal itself from?

We’ll be starting a blog series next week called “Transformation Tuesdays” which will bring you stories like these, straight from our members. Watch Jimmy share his story now:

‘First, Do No Harm:’ Why DzLogic uses Bioidentical Hormones Exclusively

This entry is part 5 of 7 in the series What is DzLogic?

Real Human Hormones (or bioidenticals) actually prevent most conditions caused by aging.

The Father of Western Medicine, Hippocrates, is often quoted as laying down the ‘Prime Directive’ of medical care – “First, Do No Harm.” That is a way of thinking we take very seriously at DzLogic.

There has been, and will continue to be, ‘public and media’ controversy about the safety of hormones. However, this is simply the result of people not having the facts presented properly. As I mentioned in the last blog, the root of the controversy continues to be the inaccurate use of terms by writers who don’t know the difference between real human hormones and “conjugated equine estrogens” (concentrated pregnant horse urine). They continue to call that ‘stuff’ estrogen!

These same writers also use the term ‘progesterone’ for synthetic lab creations that should be referred to as progestins, progestogens, progesterone-like substances – basically any term except progesterone. This travesty of language abuse goes all the way to National Institutes of Health papers.

The Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) Study began in 1991 and included over 160,000 women. It studied the outcome of using Premarin in place of real human estrogens and synthetic progestins in place of human progesterone. It was stopped prematurely when a number of horrible effects of these substances came to light:

26% increase in invasive breast cancer
29% increase in heart attacks
41% increase in strokes

The WHI results scared a lot of women away from conventional, pharmaceutical HRT (Prempro and progestins) – which is a good thing! Without this data, your mother, your wife and/or your daughter could have died from the unknown side effects of these drugs. If they already suffered from one of the above after being on conventional HRT, you have our deepest sympathies and we share your rage.

If real human hormones caused these things, breast cancer, heart attacks and strokes would be rampant among 20-something women when their hormone levels are highest, right? Look around & think about it. Is that happening? NO! Real human hormones (or bioidenticals) actually protect against these issues. These conditions happen later in life when hormone levels drop.

Dr. Kent Holtorf wrote an excellent paper on the differences between Bioidentical hormones vs. Big Pharma synthesized products. It discusses the destructive effects of synthetics and the protective effects of bioidenticals. If you are a woman, or a man who loves a woman, please read it! We have it and another of Dr. Holtorf’s more extensive papers “Hormones in Wellness” available to you on our website as reference works.

On the male side, we have the same problem – misinformation posing as medical gospel. Testosterone contributes to prostate cancer, right? That’s why there are millions of men on what Dr. Dzugan calls “chemical castration” – androgen deprivation therapy – with (surprise, surprise) Big Pharma created products that destroy your natural testosterone production. Testosterone causes heart attacks, too – right?

I’m going right back to my original argument on this one. If testosterone causes or contributes to prostate cancer and heart attacks, then every testosterone-crazed 18-year-old male is in serious danger, right? WRONG. Once again, these conditions show up late in life after hormone levels drop. The original research that created this line of thinking was based on two men and a discredited test, yet it somehow became the dominant thought.

Dr. Abe Morgentaler, Professor at Harvard University, has made a couple of great videos on the subject of testosterone therapy for men. I think you’ll love hearing about what he and his fellow researchers at Harvard have discovered.

DzLogic uses Bioidentical Hormones exclusively. They are what your body produces naturally and are completely safe if used properly.

Bioidentical Hormones vs. Pharmaceutical “Creations”

This entry is part 3 of 7 in the series What is DzLogic?

Bioidentical Hormones are exact duplicates of what your body already makes.

Hormone Therapy – or what is called “Hormone Therapy” – has been around for the last 40 years or more. The problem is that what was called “Hormone Replacement Therapy” replaced human hormones with animal hormones and lab-created patentable chemicals that aren’t quite anything except lab-created patentable chemicals!

The Problem in the Industry:

Real human hormones can’t be patented, so there isn’t a huge profit in selling them like there is on something you have an ‘exclusive’ on. Synthetic knock-offs are also cheaper to manufacture, are up to 100 times as powerful and have a longer shelf life.

The estrogenic product Premarin  (which is now being promoted as a vaginal cream) has its name derived from its primary source – pregnant mare urine! They take the hormones from horse urine and package them for over a $Billion in sales to women all over the world. Some of those horse hormones are pretty close to human hormones, but none of them are human and some of them are 20 times as powerful. They were created by – and for – a 1200 lb. animal after all.

As a woman reading this, would you ever want horse hormones anywhere near your body? I’m betting you wouldn’t! As a man, I know don’t want my sweetheart going down that road. I guess most women have never heard what it really is. However, if you read the label it clearly says “conjugated equine estrogen” – horse hormones. I hear that it break open one of the pill forms of Premarin and smell it, you’ll know what it is instantly. Yuck!

That’s on the estrogen side of things for women. On the progesterone side, pharmaceutical companies have created a dozen versions of things they call “progestins.” These compounds aren’t progesterone, but they were ‘close enough’ to get FDA approval. That “close enough but not quite” aspect of their chemistry is also what has their advertising have to mention things like blood clots, heart attacks, breast cancer, etc.

I want you to take a few minutes and sit in on a conversation between Suzanne Somers, Dr. Prudence Hall and Dr. Abe Morgentaler on what a difference bioidenticals can make for you.

What Makes DzLogic Different?

We use Bioidentical hormones.

Bioidentical hormones are just that – bioidentical. They are identical to the hormones your body already makes. These are manufactured products as well. (They aren’t harvested from people who have too much of a good thing!) They are manufactured from plant sources that have compounds in them that allow FDA-regulated laboratories to convert them into exact duplicates of human hormones.

One of the things that really irritate me about this entire area of conversation is the incredibly sloppy, inaccurate use of language in many of the articles and even scientific papers you’ll see. Writers will say “estrogen” when talking about horse “stuff.” They’ll use the term “progesterone” when referring to the Frankensteinian “progestins.” I honestly think some of this is intentional. No wonder there is so much confusion in people’s minds! You practically have to be a biochemist to know what compounds are being studied and talked about – and where to tally the results.

DzLogic uses Bioidentical Hormones exclusively. They are what your body produces naturally and are completely safe if used properly. I’ll give you plenty of evidence in our next blog. See you there!

Are your Chronologically Old, or just Biologically Old?

This entry is part 2 of 7 in the series What is DzLogic?

Your chronological age is fixed, but your biological age CAN be changed!

Garth Brooks wrote a hit song in the late 80’s entitled “I’m Much Too Young To Feel This Damn Old!”

 

Do you feel like that sometimes – or all of the time?

The Bad News:

We can’t do a thing about when we arrived on Earth, right? Every day, our chronological age simply keeps growing. As a result, most people think age and aging is a set thing and nothing can be done about the signs of aging we see on our face, eyes, hands and body.

But did you know we can do a lot about how we feel for the time we’re here and practically reverse the signs of aging that other people experience?

The Good News!

Your chronological age is fixed, but your biological age CAN be changed! Reversed in some cases.

“Biological Age” is the condition of your body and body chemistry relative to what is normal for people in a specific age range. Have you ever gone to a class reunion and been amazed at the stunning differences in how your friends have aged? Some have barely changed, but others are really showing the years. That’s the difference in Biological vs. Chronological aging.

Biological Age is impacted by many things. Some people just have great genetics and don’t seem to age like the rest of us. However, the rest of us poor folks are affected dramatically by our environment and lifestyle.

The Things That Age Us:

Air and water pollution will age you if you aren’t careful about what you breathe and drink. Processed foods with more chemicals than actual food sources on the label will age you. High Fructose Corn Syrup is probably the very last thing you’d want in your body, and it is in almost all processed foods in some form. Smoking will age you quickly.

So what if you live a healthy lifestyle, eat well, get exercise and good sleep – but you still want to turn back the clock? You can now control your body chemistry to a degree that was unheard of 20 years ago.

Your hormone levels and balance are going to degrade as you age – “normally.” And with that, your health declines as well. However, you don’t have to just accept it as we did in the past. DzLogic works to restore your hormones and body chemistry to what you had in your late 20’s or early 30’s. Wouldn’t you like to get back to that Biological Age?”

Coming up next – How we help you turn back the clock and the things we use to do it!

Because every person’s body chemistry is different, we work closely with you to develop a personalized program that improves your overall Quality of Life.

Dr. Dzugan – Expert in Physiology and Hormonal Restorative Medicine.

What is DzLogic?

This entry is part 1 of 7 in the series What is DzLogic?

Fix the errors in physiology and your body can heal itself.

Dzugan PhysioLogic – or DzLogic – is a company based on the life’s work of Sergey A. Dzugan, MD, Ph.D.

About Dr. Dzugan:

  • Top Heart Surgeon
  • University Professor
  • Published Cancer Center Research Scientist
  • President of The Life Extension Foundation’s Science Division
  • Author of several books
  • Trainer to Physicians World-Wide

Through his work across many areas of medicine, Dr. Dzugan developed the “Dzugan Principle.” Almost all disease associated with aging has one cause – “acquired errors of physiology.” With one cause, the obvious response is one treatment. Fix the errors in physiology and your body can heal itself.

DzLogic is the organization through which Dr. Dzugan and his Scientific Team, work with physicians around the world to bring this new technology to you – one person at a time.

Your Program will be completely personal because your body chemistry and life are unique to you alone. There is no such thing as ‘cookie-cutter’ medicine at DzLogic. You’ll never get the same prescription as the last 50 people your doctor saw when you work with DzLogic!

DzLogic is personalized medicine at its finest. You have your own personal Member Care Representative to guide you and our entire Scientific Team to listen to your feedback and continuously improve your personal Program for best results.

Conventional medicine is dominated by pharmaceutical companies that want you to buy their drugs for the rest of your life. DzLogic wants you to heal and need us less and less over time. We practice and teach “Physiologic Medicine” – also called “Restorative Medicine.”

Restorative Medicine balances and optimizes overall body chemistry using bioidentical hormones, vitamins, minerals, herbal extracts, probiotics, ‘superfoods’, etc. It is a natural way of returning your physiology to its proper state so that your body can heal itself.

Give your future 2 minutes and learn more about Dr. Dzugan. He has created the “Standard of Care” in Restorative Medicine; used by doctors around the world.

Dr. Dzugan describes the Restorative Medicine concept.

Just Exactly What is ‘Restorative Medicine?’

Restorative Medicine treats people – not symptoms or diseases.

Restorative Medicine treats Peoplenot symptoms or diseases.

Conventional medicine focuses on isolated “symptoms” and “diseases”, through an ever-widening array of specialty drugs and specialist doctors.

Your Human Body is an incredibly complex set of highly interactive systems. Each of these systems is dependent upon the other systems, and all of them are dependent upon your body chemistry. We all know that without the proper vitamins, minerals and nutrients, your body can’t operate properly. But did you know that without the right levels and balance of hormones, your body will begin to develop all of the diseases associated with aging?

As you get older, your hormone levels will naturally drop – dramatically.  Unfortunately, it’s like a built-in self-destruct mechanism.  The result of that drop is the breakdown of your body.

The word “hormone” is derived from the Greek word hormo, which means “to set in motion.” That’s exactly what hormones do: they regulate, stimulate, and control an endless list of critical tasks and functions, depending on their origin.

Hormones are chemical substances that are manufactured by specialized glands or tissues that produce and secrete them on demand. It’s been said that hormones are the ultimate messengers: these complex chemicals transport information from the brain to the glands, from the glands to the cells, and from the cells back to the brain, so they truly control every part of the body.

Restorative Medicine balances and optimizes overall body chemistry using bioidentical hormones, vitamins, minerals, herbal extracts, probiotics, ‘superfoods’, etc. It is a natural way of returning your physiology to its proper state so that your body can heal itself.

Restorative Medicine is a return to the core value of rebuilding your body chemistry – so that your body has what it needs to repair itself. It’s as simple as you taking some extra Vitamin C to help your immune system – or as complex as every interactive system in your body combined when done by DzLogic.

Restorative Medicine is also often called Physiologic Medicine because Physiology is the study of the proper functioning of the human body. Thus the name “Dzugan PhysioLogic.” It’s just the logical way to go about helping the body heal.

Here’s Dr. Dzugan himself describing Physiologic Medicine and why it is so much better for you than becoming dependent upon drugs that only treat symptoms.

In the next issue, I’ll introduce you to Dr. Dzugan and why I trust him with my life.

Because every person’s body chemistry is different, we work closely with you to develop a personalized program that improves your overall Quality of Life.
