20180718-05Sam-E (S-adenosylmethionine) is substrate involved in methyl group transfers and more. Typically, we see great results with anxiety, depression (especially adrenal and stress related), fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis pain, PMS as well as aiding in liver detoxifying. In the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (2009), multiple researchers found SAM-e was excellent in reducing pain and improving osteoarthritis function.

20180718-06Sexual dysfunction is more common in men as they age, period! The key is to understand the possible link between chronic disease and E.D. Luckily there are great treatment options and success.

The most correlated condition is diabetes. Poor sugar control can ruin your erections. Cardiovascular disease, atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease, multiple sclerosis and any inflammatory condition can damage blood flow and nerve impulses causing E.D. Psychological factors also play a role in 20% of men with E.D.

The shocking data reported in Massachusetts Male Aging Study is approximately 40% of men experience some degree of E.D at age 40 and by age 70, 70% of men experiences E.D at least once. E.D can be a warning sign of serious disease, especially heart disease and possibly a warning of heart attack.

Understanding-COQ10-and-its-best-form.-Anti-aging-magicYou could say COQ10, an essential, fat soluble benzoquinone made in the mitochondria of every cell in your body is much like magic! Because of its role in cellular health and energy it is one of the most popular supplements or non-vitamin ingredients taken by millions for many years. COQ10 has helped reduce cardiovascular risk, increase overall energy, combat fatigue and mitigate statininduced myopathy (muscle pain). COQ10 levels in the body drop by age 40. Statin, cholesterol meds can lower COQ10 by up to 40%.

Start supplementing with the best form of CoQ10 as Ubquinone in a fat (oil) capsule and begin antiaging!

Women-in-perimenopause-sleep-the-worstContrary to popular belief, women’s sleep patterns are worse in perimenopause (age 40-59 years) than for women post-menopause, this is according to the National Center for Health Statistics form 2015. Greater than 35% of perimenopausal women slept less than 7 hours consistent on average.

There is help for those lacking sleep during premenopause, perimenopause and post menopause! Progesterone and Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help sleep patterns and consistency. Progesterone is a sex hormone that is calming and balancing for a woman. Actually, progesterone activates the GABA receptor of the brain leading to a more restful sleep. Progesterone can actually start to decline in a woman as early as her 30’s.

“I feel very strongly and empathetically for women of this age with poor sleep. Thankfully we have a very effective natural tool to help women with these symptoms”
-Dr. Lewerenz.

The-skyrocketing-rates-of-infertilityA very scary recent analysis confirms what I have been suspicious of for years, infertility may be “threatening mankind” states Dr. Lewerenz.

A large meta-analysis confirmed in 2015, that sperm counts around the world decline more than 50% between 1973 and 2013. It was estimated that half the men in this metanalysis had sperm counts less than 40 million sperm per milliliter (The cutoff point at which men have trouble fertilizing an egg). Dr. Frederick Von Saal, professor emeritus of biological sciences at the University of Missouri states: “we are in a death spiral of infertility”.

It is believed that the root cause of this issue is the exposure and overexposure of endocrine disruptors, ie; toxins. Lead, mercury, arsenic, pesticides, BPA, dioxin, phalates, EMF’s and more are just some of the hormone wreckers. Add stress, obesity, nutritional deficiencies and food intolerance/allergies and one can easily see why the fertile population is dwindling.

Longevity Health Institute and Dr. Lewerenz, along with his health providers are excited to offer ways to rid yourself of toxins and help men and women with infertility.

Hormone-supplements-and-replacement“The new data and update from the American Cancer Society shows that women are NOT more likely to die after using hormone replacement therapy”
– Dr. Lichteufield

The deputy chief medical officer for the American Cancer Society stated, “Women on hormone therapy may NOT be more likely to die from cancer or heart disease because doctors have improved in treating these diseases”. The trial study was published in Sept. 2017 of the Journal of the American Medical Association that seemed to clearly state the pros and cons of Hormone Replacement Therapy and that it should be an individual case by case consideration.

“Personally, in my clinical experience over 20 years and seeing roughly 4,000-5,000 patients per year if hormone replacement is done in a personalized way the benefits outweigh any risk. My patients are treated as a whole and we optimize everyone’s immunity for the best success and best quality of life”
– Dr. Lewerenz

Ozone-and-your-healthHow can ozone (o3) help heal or prevent and/or stave off illness. Ozone is 3 oxygens and when applied to the body (or blood) it has an anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effect, much like an antibiotic or vaccine!

Since the late 1800’s, ozone has been used to purify water. Medical use of ozone started in the 1950’s in Germany and has since grown in Europe and America. The medical properties of ozone; a potent regulator of the immune system stimulated increased uptake and utilization of oxygen, increases efficiency of the bodies antioxidant enzymes, improves circulation, is antiinflammatory and antimicrobial.

“Ozone is often used in chronic fatigue, infections and any health immune related disease”
– Dr. Lewerenz.

LOW Vitamin D EQUALS PAIN!

Vitamin-D-and-RA-(Rheumatoid-Arthritis)Interestingly, we know the bone and immune boosting power of Vitamin D, although there is an extensive list of other benefits that are less known.

In patient studies, RA and Vitamin D levels were correlated to pain and progression of the disease when the levels were too low.

A study published in the International Journal of Rheumatic Disease, pain scales or LANSS scores showed a negative correlation in patients with Vitamin D levels <20mg/ml. Actually, some 5.8 times a negative correlation. Furthermore, if supplemented Vitamin D to levels > 46mg/ml, there was 85% reported satisfaction.

So, get your D to be PAIN FREE!

The Misunderstood Thyroid

Misunderstood Thyroid I have for years found it interesting how so many patients I see weekly, daily, yearly are overlooked, mismanaged, underappreciated or flat out disregarded about their thyroid symptoms and or thyroid condition.

Most individuals understand that thyroid regulates their weight and energy. So if they are gaining weight and tired they run to their doctor and say I need my Thyroid tested because of these symptoms. Most good doctors will consider it and run a laboratory that at least looks at TSH, and maybe T3 or Total T4, maybe. If these labs fall into “the normal range” then you’re told your fine. You could be told, “Maybe your just  getting older and worn out, maybe it’s in your head.” (more…)
