Dr. Wilson coined the term adrenal fatigue to identify a specific kind of chronic tiredness that many people experience. After decades of working with stressed patients, Dr. Wilson wrote an easy-to-understand guide on stress and health, Adrenal Fatigue: The 21st Century Stress Syndrome, for the many individuals experiencing adrenalfatigue.

Wilson has three doctorates and two master’s degrees, all in different health-related disciplines. He received his Ph.D. in Human Nutrition from the University of Arizona, with minors in Immunology, Microbiology, Pharmacology and Toxicology, and research in Cellular Immunology.

Anti-aging medicine earns converts and critics

Dee Martin of Marietta leads an active life. At 51, she hits the gym five days a week. She eats organic foods. Her weekend activities include mountain hikes and bike riding. But for some reason, no matter how much she followed the rules, she never seemed to drop the little bit of weight she wanted to lose.

After a visit to Dr. Ken Knott for a shoulder injury led to a discussion about hormone levels and testing, Martin made the connection. She had an underactive thyroid.

To improve her thyroid function, she began taking a thyroid supplement. She also took bioidentical hormones hormones that are identical in molecular structure to hormones made in the body. She tweaked her diet, per Dr. Knotts suggestions. In two months, Martin lost 15 pounds. Her skin, which had been dry and loose a trait she had assumed shed inherited from her mother became smoother and firmer, with her wrinkles less noticeable.

Martin was hooked on a growing, if controversial, medical focus known as anti-aging medicine.

I just want to age gracefully the way I am supposed to, Martin said. With Dr. Knotts program, you dont feel as old or look as old.

Knott is one of more than 100 doctors in the state listed with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M), an organization created in 1992 to advance technologies that prevent and treat age-related disease as well as support research on extending life. Anti-aging medicine is not recognized as a specialty by the American Board of Medical Specialties. Doctors who practice anti-aging medicine use a range of treatments and therapies, including bioidentical hormones and supplements, that continue to be the subject of debate in the medical community.

Using hormones to replace a deficiency is generally accepted by most physicians, said Dr. Lawrence Phillips, an endocrinologist at Emory University Hospital. But using hormones to battle old age or improve health in non-deficient individuals is unproven.

No research has shown that hormone therapies add years to life or prevent age-related frailty, according to the National Institute on Aging (NIA), part of the federal governments National Institutes of Health (NIH). Some hormones may have harmful side effects, according to the NIA, and the bioidentical hormones prescribed by many anti-aging doctors have not been subjected to rigorous testing for safety and efficacy.

It is easy to get seduced into the claim that there is something called anti-aging medicine, said S. Jay Olshansky, a longevity specialist and professor at the School of Public Health at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Exercise is about the only equivalent of a fountain of youth that exists today. It improves skin elasticity, muscle tone, bone density and you can do it for free, or pretty much free.

Anti-aging medicine has a long history, Olshansky said, with treatments such as caloric restriction and a precursor to hormone therapy surfacing in the pre-20th century. While many of todays anti-aging practitioners have their patients health and best interests in mind, Olshansky said, others are not far removed from the dollar-chasing hucksters of the past. I am optimistic that something is going to happen and happen soon that will allow us to slow the biological process, Olshansky said. But it is not anything that is out there today.

A mix of traditional, holistic medical care for patients

Dr. Susan Ashley, a family physician practicing in Liberty Lake, is also board certified in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine and offers a mix of traditional and holistic medical care to patients of all ages. Her practice at Family Medicine Liberty Lake is a solo practice and also employs an ARNP, Heidi Kallestad. Together, they specialize in the following:

Bio-Identical hormone replacement therapy for both men and women. BHRT can reduce the risk of heart disease, dementia, osteoporosis and slow down the aging process. Unlike synthetic hormones, such as premarin, there is no increase in breast cancer risk. Balancing your hormones not only gives you more energy and vitality, but will make weight loss easier and increase lean muscle mass. These hormones include estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, adrenals, thyroid, growth hormone, insulin and melatonin.

Fatigue and fibromyalgia. So many patients are plagued with unrelenting fatigue, often with a mixture of fibromyalgia and muscle pain, with no discernable cause or treatment. Many go from doctor to doctor in an attempt to alleviate some of their symptoms. Dr. Ashley’s program for chronic fatigue has a high success rate and addresses the many causes and contributing factors involved. This involves not only balancing the hormones and aggresively treating adrenal fatigue, but making sure nutrition is balanced and proper supplementation is given. Sleep must be restored, and latent infections which can cause ongoing symptoms must be treated.

The newest tool in her fight against these chronic disorders involves measurement of the electro-magnetic energy fields of the body, and correction when mis-alignments occur. Called “Energy Medicine,” this is well known in Europe and Asia, and is just now being introduced in our country. Correction of the human body electro-magnetic field will greatly increase the success rate for patients, and indeed, some will simply not improve until this issue is addressed.

Bio-Medical Treatment approach for Autism and ADHD. Autism is treatable! Both autism and ADHD have a common root cause, and can be successfully treated and, in some cases, cured. Dr. Ashley follows the treatment protocol of Dr. Kenneth Bock, and treats the underlying biochemical, metabolic and neurologic defects with positive results in every case. Drugs are rarely used and, indeed, simply cover up the symptoms rather than get to the root cause of the disease.

Anti-Aging Medicine – or, as some are starting to call it, “Advanced Medicine.” There are so many exciting advances in the field of anti-aging medicine. If a patient is truly motivated, there are many things one can do to not only increase longevity, but improve the quality of life, such that an active, vital and energetic life can be expected into the 80s, 90s, and even past 100! If one looks at our DNA, we should be living to 125 years, so why is it cut short? Diet and lifestyle play a big factor, and environmental toxins. Newer advances, such as TA-65, a telomerase activator that lengthens our telomeres, and stem cell therapies are now available. Proper supplementation with the correct vitamin and mineral combination is so important, and the difference between common food grade supplements, and medical and pharmaceutical grade supplements are taught to every patient.

Alzheimers and other dementias. Much can be done to slow down or reverse the devastation caused by dementias, including high doses of omega-3′s, increasing cholesterol to 225 range, high dose anti-oxidants such as astaxanthin, and a combination of coconut oil and MCT (medium chain triglyceride) oil. Patients are referred to the book “Alzheimers, what if there is a Cure” by Dr. Mary Newport to follow her protocol.

Food sensitivities and allergies – gluten sensitivity is dramatically increasing and, if ignored, can have devastating long-term consequences. Food sensitivities can be treated and, in many cases, completely reversed.

Obesity and weight loss – our biggest challenge in our society! Dr. Ashley also owns Healthy Living Liberty Lake, a weight loss and wellness clinic, which is certified by the American Academy of Bariatric Physicians. Obesity is a complex disease and treatment involving many treatment modalities, including the proper diet, increasing the fat-burning enzymes, detoxification of environmental toxins that can impede weight loss, balancing the hormones, and education on whole foods, glycemic index and basic nutrition. Prescription strength hcg is available for increased fat burning and preservation of muscle during weight loss, and appetite suppressants are used short-term if needed. Every patient is individualized, and even genetic testing can be done to pinpoint what kind of diet, based on genetics, would best suit the patient.

IV Nutritional therapy is used for many different reasons, including as part of the treatment for chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia, increased energy and vitality, to quickly rid a cold or flu, or as adjunctive therapy for those undergoing cancer treatments.

Anti-Aging Medicine: Amelia’s Look Into A Medical Controversy

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) Would you like a little extra energy? Most people would.

Thats why coffee shops and supplements are all so popular. But when I started having insomnia and feeling run down and irritable, I knew I needed more than a cup of coffee.

At first, I thought it was early menopause, or worse. It turns out, many women in their 30s and 40s have similar symptoms of weariness and irritability.

The solution I found not only has me feeling more energetic and stronger; it also opened my eyes to a growing controversy in womens medicine.

At first, I turned to Bonnie Erickson, a friend, who suggested I see an anti-aging doctor who had worked wonders for her.

Immediately I felt as though things were different, she said. I felt like I had my quality of life back.

Shes been seeing Dr. Khalid Mahmud for eight years. And after disappointing results with traditional medicine, she swears by his combination of holistic treatments and natural hormones.

I just think its a more natural approach, Bonnie said. Its more of a preventative approach.

Over the years, shes convinced most of her family, including her husband and two of her daughters, to see Mahmud.

One of her daughters, Keri Fuqua, had symptoms similar to mine. She also said her treatment with Mahmud was successful so successful that I couldnt help thinking that I needed to see him myself.

Epidemic of obesity, high stress may contribute to Alzheimer’s

Posted on April 28, 2012, Saturday

KUALA LUMPUR: The epidemic of obesity, insulin resistance, high saturated fat diets, stress, and environmental toxins are all leading to a high inflammatory state and may contribute to Alzheimers disease as a long term effect.

President of the Australian College of Anti-Aging Medicine Dr Nathan Francis said many people nowadays were not focused on a healthy lifestyle as they believed in the existence of magic pills or tests, for early detection and cure.

The public feels we got magic pills, but we dont. Remember that prevention is better than cure, therefore, rather than waiting for magic pills, they should go for exercise to lose weight and also learn to handle their stress by doing yoga or even pray.

Women are facing a higher risk of being diagnosed with Alzheimers disease compared to men as they are lacking in the testosterone hormone. In fact, busy lifestyles nowadays also put typical women in stress, exhaustion and theyre just too tired once they finished their work in the office and return home, he said.

He told Bernama this after giving a talk at the 9th Malaysian Conference and Exhibition on Anti-Aging, Aesthetic and Regenerative Medicine and 2nd International Congress on Anti-Aging, Aesthetic and Regenerative Medicine (Malaysia)(SAAARMM) at a hotel, here, yesterday.

Dr Nathan said the number of diagnosed patients had increased by about two-fold every year and that there were about 4,000 new cases diagnosed for Alzheimer in the United States every week.

Alzheimers disease always happens to the people at the age of sixty and above due to the lack of exercise, not having enough mental stimulation or brain exercises and even not doing ballroom dancing or crossword puzzles.

People have to be active persons and giving brain stimulation by praying, going for a walk and listening to relaxing music may reduce their stress level, he said.

Alzheimer is a disease whereby people tend to forget simple things such as peoples names, appointments and even their daily routine as well as to manage themselves as normal people.

Anti-aging medicine, anyone?

MANILA, Philippines – Anti-aging need not be cosmetic.

This is according to a boutique medical-cum-wellness center, which promises to change Filipinos’ views on health care.

The LifeScience Center for Wellness and Preventive Medicine is promoting anti-aging medicine as an alternative to the disease-based approach of the medical community.

“It is something that we never had in the Philippines before. It is something that should be a cornerstone of medical practice. It is how you know which patients will respond to which medications, which patients could get which disease,” said Benedict Francis Valdecanas.

This runs counter to the perception that anti-aging medicine is purely aesthetics, especially in a country where the practice has been associated with celebrity-focused, and -endorsed, cosmetic surgeries.

Valdecanas said anti-aging medicine uses some of the most advanced scientific and medical technologies to provide “customized” medication, allowing individuals to slow down their internal clocks.

An at-home companion device to Isolaz, CLARO began selling at retail outlets in 2010. More recently, Clear + Brilliant a new, less-invasive approach to laser skin enhancement to prevent the unwanted signs of aging was developed utilizing Fraxel technology, and finally, this year Liposonix.

“Over the years, Solta has helped transform aesthetic medicine – with its deep roots in rigorous science by providing gold-standard energy technologies used to treat patients who sought effective and safe skin treatments,” said Roy G. Geronemus, MD, Clinical Professor of Dermatology at New York University Medical Center and Director of the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York. “Solta products have been go-to treatment solutions for my patients looking for non-invasive options for everything from skin resurfacing and tightening to preventative and maintenance care to slow down the aging process to clearing acne and now fat reduction. I have been using Solta’s entire line of aesthetic energy devices not only because patients ask for them by name but also because the products deliver their promised results time after time.”
