Regenerative Therapies & Musculoskeletal Regenerative Nutrition

By Erik Goldman

Regenerative therapies such as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections & Prolotherapy stimulate the body’s ability to stabilize inflammatory processes and generate new tissue within the musculoskeletal system. In this free webinar, regenerative medicine expert Dustin Moffitt, ND, will explore how a nutraceutical called Ostinol®–a growth factor complex patented for osteoinductive properties–can be used support regenerative treatment […]

Winter Tips for Optimal Skin Health

By Erik Goldman

With a surface area of more than 20 square feet, and a weight comprising roughly 15% of a person’s total mass, the skin is the body’s largest organ. It is the place where the inside meets the outside world, and vice versa. Because conventional medicine has divided the body into departments or “ologies,” primary care […]

Framingham Data Link High Omegas with Better Midlife Brain Health

By Erik Goldman

New data from the third generation of the Framingham Heart Study indicate that higher red blood cell Omega-3 concentrations correlate with healthier brain structure and better cognitive function in midlife. The study also suggests that the effects of Omega-3 fatty acids on the brain are mediated, to some degree by apolipoprotein-E (APOE) genotype. “In multivariable […]

Hormone Replacement Therapy & Bone Health: Cyplexinol Nutritional Support

By Erik Goldman

Hormone Replacement Therapy & Bone Health: Cyplexinol Nutritional Support On average bone density decreases by 10% in women during the five years of menopause due to changes in estrogen. While Hormone Replacement Therapy offers support in maintaining bone health, there can be a precipitous loss when women discontinue HRT. Along with the decline in estrogen, […]

Krill Oil Improves Arthritic Knee Pain in Large Australian Study

The Transformative Benefits of Nicotinamide Riboside and NAD+: Targeting a Root Cause of Aging

By Erik Goldman

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “At the biological level, aging results from the impact of the accumulation of a wide variety of molecular and cellular damage over time.” Age-related functional decline occurs from exposure to physiological and metabolic stressors that cause subsequent epigenetic changes. Overall health depends, in large part, on cellular resilience […]

Non-Rx Female Hormone Support Made Simple

By Erik Goldman

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) has improved the lives of millions of perimenopausal and menopausal women. But let’s face it: fulfilling BHRT prescriptions at compounding pharmacies is a hassle for patients and practitioners alike. It is also a lost revenue stream for practitioners. There has never been a comprehensive non-prescription hormone balancing system that delivers […]

Parasites Lost: Helminths, Pleiotropy, and The Prevention of Dementia

By Michael McEvoy, Contributing Writer

The ability to link specific genetic features with particular diseases is among molecular biology’s greatest achievements. But there’s a downside to that scientific triumph: it has oversimplified the picture of the relationships between genotype, environmental factors, gene expression, and health or illness, and created blind spots in our understanding. The truth is, there are many […]

Managing “Mitochondriopathy” For Healthier Aging

By Erik Goldman

What is the common theme underlying nearly all of the diseases associated with aging? Mitochondrial dysfunction. It is a simple biological fact that mitochondrial function tends to decline with age.  This affects every organ and every tissue in the body. But clinicians often fail to consider “mitochondriopathy” as they treat the various diseases that their […]

Adding Health to Years: A Holistic Approach to Healthy Aging

By Erik Goldman

Every day, nearly 10,000 Americans reach their 65th birthdays–that’s roughly 3.7 million people per year. At the farther end of the age spectrum, octogenarians are now the fastest growing age bracket. The need for effective strategies to mitigate senescence and promote optimal metabolic function into advanced age has never been greater. NAD+ plays a fundamental […]
