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!

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.

Beware the Char! Too much sitting - for your job or in front of the TV - can increase your risk of diabetes, heart disease, metabolic syndrome, cancer and a shorter life span.

Too Much Sitting Can Harm You In Many Ways

More and more evidence is coming out that excessive sitting can wreck your health.

Why you need to get up and move.

The American College of Cardiology presented a study on March 15, 2015, showing sedentary time (sitting) is directly linked to coronary artery calcification; independent of other exercise and traditional cardiovascular disease risk factors. Arterial calcification (hardening of the arteries) is a major component of serious heart disease.

The Annals of Internal Medicine published a meta-analysis review of 47 papers showing increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer and all-cause death associated with sedentary lifestyles.

The study didn’t define an exact “danger point” for too much sitting, but “if you sit more than 8 hours a day, that’s probably linked to a lot of the negative health effects,” said the study’s lead researcher, Aviroop Biswas, a doctoral candidate at the University of Toronto.

What Can You Do?

Get up! It is that simple, and yet will feel unnatural at first. Here are a couple of strategies:

  1. Set a recurring timer on your desk that will beep at you every 45 minutes to an hour. Every time it goes off you get up, stretch out and maybe do a few deep knee bends to get your blood flowing into all the right places again.
  2. Do the same at home on every commercial break while you’re watching TV.
  3. Set a small glass of water (6 oz.) on your desk. After your stretch, drink the water and then go refill the glass. This will keep you hydrated as well as moving.
  4. Get a wireless headset for your office phone so that you can stand up and walk around while taking or making calls.

The above studies noted that sedentary behavior increased with a combination of age, declining health,  and overall energy level. An optimized body chemistry program can reverse many of the effects of aging while helping protect you from the diseases mentioned.

Studies show testosterone protects heart function.

FDA Testosterone Warning “Premature” – Evidence Continues to Mount

Two major medical conferences in the last week (The Endocrine Society & American College of Cardiology) have presented a total of four new papers showing no increased cardiovascular risk for men using testosterone therapy. (1, 2)

The first study presented at the American College of Cardiology included 7245 men in 15 hospitals and 150 clinics. The second was a meta-study of 29 separate studies including 122,000 men.

“When we pulled out all the studies so far, testosterone in any form—whether it was a gel, an injection, or older pills—did not increase the risk of cardiovascular events, such as heart attack, sudden cardiac death, stroke, or hospitalization for heart failure,” said Dr Pawan Patel (Regions Hospital, St Paul, MN), lead investigator of the meta-analysis.

The Endocrine Society conference highlighted two additional studies; showing no additional ‘venous thrombotic events’ (blood clots) in one, and no increase in ‘major adverse cardiovascular events’ in the other.

“This has become a popularized and controversial issue,” Ronald Swerdloff, MD, from the University of California, Los Angeles, told Medscape Medical News at the ENDO 2015 meeting.

“The regulatory agencies have raised questions based upon some studies that suggest there may be adverse effects. But many other studies suggest there are no adverse effects, and there are mainly epidemiologic studies showing there may be adverse effects of low testosterone.”

Recent study about testosterone therapy based on flawed, refuted study

FDA Releases “Safety Alert” Based On Flawed, Refuted Study

If you are concerned by what you’ve heard on national media about the FDA’s safety alert regarding “possible” cardiovascular risk associated with testosterone therapy, you’ll want to hear “the rest of the story” as Paul Harvey used to say.

Dozens of studies over the last 30 years have shown that higher levels of testosterone, either naturally occurring or the result of testosterone therapy done correctly, have shown a positive effect on cardiovascular risk factors. In fact, two of those studies showed that men treated with testosterone had a 50% reduction in mortality compared to untreated men who also had low testosterone.

The study at the heart of the FDA’s thinking was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) in November of 2014. Since then, 29 medical societies and 160 of the world’s foremost experts in endocrinology, cardiology, etc. from 32 countries have demanded JAMA retract the paper citing “gross data mismanagement.”

“People find it hard to believe that JAMA would publish a study in which the percentages of men who suffered an adverse event was lower by half in men who received testosterone than untreated men, yet results were reported as if the opposite were true, thanks to absurdly complicated statistical manipulations of the data,” stated Andre Guay, Clinical Professor of Endocrinology, Tufts University School of Medicine. “There is nothing believable in this study.”

For a quick video overview of this controversy, we invite you to watch this 8 minute video from Dr. Morgentaler, Professor of Urology, Harvard University:

Additional information:“

Testosterone is a major component of men’s health and as testosterone levels fall, overall health suffers. Low levels have been associated with diabetes, metabolic syndrome, obesity, high blood pressure, memory loss, erectile dysfunction and other conditions.

As with all medical practices, testosterone therapy should only be managed by experienced professionals with extensive experience in the use of this powerful substance.
