What to Expect at the Part II Course in September:
Dear Part I Attendees,
WorldLink Medical has worked with me to rebuild the 2013 courses by replacing old articles with new content and updated articles, and placing them all on PowerPoint slides to make the overhead slides a thing of the past. In fact, those of you who attended the last Part I course in Salt Lake City have already experienced many of those changes. Anyone attending the Part II course in September will also have the opportunity to see these improvements.
The Part II course goes beyond the basics of Part I to explore advanced protocols that are critical to mastering complex cases not taught in my Part I course. In addition, since the field of age management medicine continues to grow at a rapid rate, the redesigned Part II course will help you stay ahead of the changes by covering a remarkable amount of material (over 1,300 slides), including highlights of new and important therapies, clinical pearls, tricks of the trade, recent controversies and every crucial element that I could not fit into Part I.
My favorite part of this course is the Saturday night informal discussion, which involves a question and answer session with me. This discussion explores difficult cases, controversies, legal issues and tribulations from seasoned attendees. It also expands your clinical knowledge through sharing experiences and feedback in round table discussions. There is no other place where you can participate in such a gathering of the minds.
For this year’s nutrition lectures, WorldLink has teamed up with Dr. Alan Gaby. He has extensively researched and written on this topic, and in my opinion there is no greater authority on vitamins and nutrition. Dr. Gaby will lecture Friday morning before I take over in the afternoon.
Here is a summary of Part II topics:
Anti-aging (definitions and why we call it that). Reviewing articles that make us refer to BHRT as anti-aging and providing credibility for why we do what we do.
Longevity medicine and which hormones have a proven record for extending health, wellness and longevity.
Making sense out of the many HRT studies, the critiques and the rebuttals. Putting the pieces together will make you an expert on all of the if’s, and’s or but’s.
The positive and negative articles on BHRT. Laying to rest that estriol is a worthless metabolite, what the literature shows we should and shouldn’t use, and disproving what many are teaching without any facts.
“There are no studies that prove BHRT is different from synthetic HRT.” Baloney!
A literature review proving that HGH, testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, DHEA and melatonin protect against cancer. The perfect solution to Obamacare.
This includes optimization of progesterone and case examples, multiple studies that prove transdermal cream is worthless and harmful, and a discussion that saliva testing for monitoring therapy is worthless. Scientific studies prove where your levels should be for maximum protection and where they should not be in order to protect against cancer.
Beyond transdermal testosterone cream – New and different methods for raising testosterone in men and women: oral, SQ, IM, HCG, and Clomid.
Oral vs. transdermal estrogen – The relative risks of both and the safest versus the most beneficial.
A literature update on HGH, DHEA, and thyroid treatments for cardiovascular and osteoporosis protection.
What can you do to prevent and treat weight gain and bloating as far as hormones are concerned?
Cardiovascular disease protection, cardiac markers, eicosinoids, diet, EFA’s, insulin, and inflammation.
Cardiovascular case studies with management beyond statins.
Diagnosis and treatment of the most common premenopausal endocrinopathy that everyone fails to diagnosis, and its relation to cardiovascular disease, breast cancer, and uterine cancer.
Hair loss in men and women, TE, hirsutism, and the effects of hormones on skin.
Treatment of osteoporosis beyond biphosphonates: vitamin D3, vitamin K, strontium, and ipraflavone. Estrogen metabolites – do they or do they not predict breast cancer?
The importance of estrogen optimization in men and the harm of suppression. The harm in giving progesterone to men as it increases inflammatory cytokines.
Cortisol and fatigue – How and when to use it, how to monitor it, and how to test it with ACTH.
Complex cases, labs, adjustments, fun and interesting cases, and lots of WWND (What Would Neal Do?).
Hormones and cancer. The myths & controversies of the oncogenic effects of hormones. Literature review showing protection against cancer by optimization of hormones.
The last hour includes 100 pertinent questions and answers with discussion.
Dr. Gaby and I look forward to seeing everyone in Salt Lake City, Utah on September 27, 2013.
