Dr Bieley answers questions about antiaging medicine, staying young, and just what anti aging physicians do!
Let me start off by thanking Dr. Bieley for taking the time and effort to share his knowledge and perspective about the field of antiaging medicine with us.
How long have you been in practice?
I have been in practice for 5 years
How did you become interested in antiaging medicine?
I became ill and this is this is the type of medicine that got me well.
What are the differences between traditional and anti-aging doctors?
The difference are many.....
1) Anti-aging medicine physicians marry nutrition and bioidentical hormone replacement.
2) Anti-aging medicine physicians can customize nutrients (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, etc) based upon your unique biochemical individuality.
3) Anti-aging medicine physicians look to treat the underlying causes of illness and not just treat symptoms.
Will an anti-aging doctor work with a family doctor and other specialists?
Yes, we can and do work with family doctors and other practitioners.
What are the benefits of seeing an anti-aging doctor?
Prevention, preemption, and alleviation of illness are the main benefits. Wouldn't you rather find a potential problem and fix it before it becomes a real problem?
Dr Bieley, what kinds of patients come to you for treatment?
I treat men with hypogonadism (low testosterone), chronic stress that leads to adrenal fatigue, thyroid issue. sexual dysfunction (lack of libido, or inability to achieve or maintain erections), gut issues, and toxic metals / environmental toxins. I can improve their blood sugars and cholesterol naturally.
I treat women with PMS, chronic stress (that leads to adrenal fatigue), menopausal and peri-menopausal symptoms (like hot flashes, sweating, memory loss, energy loss, depression), thyroid issues, gut issues, toxic metals/environmental toxins, decreased libido and/ or strength of orgasm, weight gain despite dieting, I can improve their blood sugars and cholesterol naturally.
We also see women and men who desire Botox Cosmetic, and facial fillers, and also offer gene testing to prevent or preempt chronic disease like breast cancer, heart disease, or osteoporosis.
Parents who wish to get their children off of ADD/ADHD medicines, we can help. If your child is not performing well academically we can help if the issue has a biologic basis.
What is the particular focus you take with your patients and why?
Personalized, individualized care and treatment plans. We simply put balance back where it is needed. We do this with bio-identical hormone replacement and with nutrients. This allows a person to become their best self.
What are the primary causes of aging?
There are many theories of aging. This is an academic question. Shortening of telomeres, antioxidant loss, hormone decline, toxic metals and environmental toxins, nutrient losses, etc...
What do you feel is the best way to extend lifespan
You must create balance in your life. It's not just a pill-for-an-ill approach. We use a combination medicines,nutrition, technology and lifestyle changes for all of our patients. It's all about the balance.
What advice would you give for improving mental performance?
This would depend upon what the issues are for the individual patient. Some would benefit from fatty acid therapy, some would benefit from B-vitamins, others from removal of foods shown to be very reactive, and others need removal of toxic metals and environmental substances.
There are specific nutrients that help improve focused attention, such as theanine which increases dopamine, lowers norepinepherine, and indirectly increases GABA.
Selegeline, a medicine, improves brain dynamic thinking, or creative thinking. Prevagen and Cerefolin NAC improve mental clarity. Testosterone in men improves mental clarity. Exercise improves mental performance and focused attention.
This work is personalized for the individual, as everyone needs different things to improve their mental performance.
What is the relationship between mental and physical health?
Thoughts give rise to emotions and these can become 'stuck' in your body. Mood can be improved with amino acid therapy as well as bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Physical health is demonstrated by optimal bio-markers and by robust vitality. They go hand and hand.
Which therapies have you found most helpful to your patients?
What are the new anti-aging treatments you foresee coming in the near future?
My new office offers Far-infrared sauna therapy to help accelerate the removal of toxic heavy metals, and environmental toxins that are stuck in the tissues.
We offer IV therapies such as the PK Protocol for chronic disease such as Parkinson’s disease.
Dr Bieley, what are you currently working on?
I am currently working on gene testing for weight loss. The program tells you which is the best diet and exercise program based upon your genes and it shows the strength of the science for the recommendations we give the patient.
Also, sexual enhancement. What Cialis is for men, Oxytocin is for women. Women can have stronger and more frequent orgasms if their oxytocin levels are optimal! It also increases trust, and love between couples.
Are there any new antiaging developments on the immediate horizon that hold promise?
Oxytocin therapy for sexual enhancement.
The Acumen Test which looks at the membranes of mitochondria and even on genes that can determine and identify a toxic metal or environmental toxin in or on a gene.
Is there anything that we haven’t discussed that you would like to add?
Yes.., we treat thyroid problems, chronic stess, and can help you lower your insulin requirements and lower your blood sugars naturally.
We can also help you improve your cholesterol levels naturally.
