Exercise and the New year

This is a great time to start planning for the new year. Motivation and discipline can use any impetus and resolutions for the upcoming year can sometimes be used to jumpstart a healthier life. Consider how important any kind of exercise is to eliminating so many of the chronic conditions that might be plaguing you … Continued

The Boca Experience

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of traveling to Boca Raton, Florida to spend some time at the BodyLogicMD corporate headquarters. This was part of the training process that all new BodyLogicMD physicians go through. Not knowing entirely what to expect, I must say that I was thoroughly impressed! The staff was knowledgeable … Continued

Hormones

Sometimes I take it for granted that patients know what a hormone is. Most probably don’t. A hormone is a chemical messenger created by a gland in the body, which is then released into the blood stream where it interacts with the cells in other places in the body. There are literally thousands of different … Continued

Holidays

This is a difficult time of year for many of our patients who struggle with their weight or with food sensitivities. Every office and work place is loaded with very tasty creations that “stick” to us more than we would like. Remember that we have choices about what we eat and that no one is … Continued

I have taken care of breast cancer patients as a surgeon for over 25 years. It is a devastating diagnosis because of the severity of the treatments and because it affects so many young women.

The first two days were essentially complete fasting days other than 4 scoops of Orthomolecular Core Restore mixed with water. Those were kind of hard days with limited calories, long hours at work and … Continued

Detoxing with our patients

Today marks the beginning of our program during which we detox with some of our patients. Everyone knows that we accumulate toxins over time. Sometimes through the air we breath, or the food we eat or because our metabolic pathways are deficient. Today we embark on a one week, intense detox to rid the body … Continued

Exercise and endorphins

We all seem to be addicted to something. Sometimes it is coffee or alcohol or food or tobacco. These substances seem to make us feel better while we use them and sometimes for a while afterwards. They probably act in a way that raises levels of certain neurotransmitters in our brains. It could be dopamine … Continued

What hormones are involved with libido?

Many middle-aged adults have problems with diminished libido. It is very common for that to be one of the top few symptoms in patients we see at BodylogicMD of Sacramento. Sometimes this is easily correctable by augmenting testosterone levels. This can be done with subcutaneous pellets placed every 3-5 months, with weekly shots or with … Continued
