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.

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.

Why Men Should Care About Estrogen

For a long time, estrogen was considered only important to women. Thanks to research, we now know that is not the case.

So, Why Should Men Care About Estrogen?

Two words: sex drive.

Yes, testosterone is a major player when it comes to “manhood,” but estrogen may be just as important.  Both hormones were found to affect a man’s sex drive, with deficiencies in both leading to a low libido.

Furthermore, estrogen deficiencies are linked to increases in a man’s body fat, which in turn can lead to a higher chance of high blood pressure, heart issues, and type 2 diabetes.

 

What You Can Do to Fix It

Balance is key.

As noted, not enough estrogen contributes to a slew of medical conditions. But you should also know that too much estrogen can cause heart problems and feminization of the body.

To help men achieve a proper estrogen level, we recommend a two-pronged approach.

  1. As is the case with many medical conditions, a healthy lifestyle can help. This means eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly!
  2. Older men may also want to consider bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). BHRT is a restorative medicine technique that naturally optimizes testosterone, estrogen and many other hormone levels without causing the nasty side effects associated with prescription medications.

Because balance is key, and because every person is different, we will work closely with you to develop a personalized BHRT program that not only gives you your sex drive back, but improves your overall quality of life.
