“Promoting Longevity & Preventing Disease” is a presentation given by Bernd Friedlander, DC at the Silicon Valley Health Institute on May 17, 2018.

Patients do not simply want to avoid disease, they want to be healthy. While US emergency rooms are extremely good at resolving a true acute-care crisis like getting hit by a car, the system does not get people healthy. For example, many of the most popular prescription drugs in the US today do not cure any disease, they simply reduce or mask symptoms, and have serious side effects (e.g.: statins – CoQ10 depletion and muscle pain, sometimes death; Reclast – kidney damage and jaw necrosis; SSRIs: suicide and homicide). [Ed: See “Drug Muggers” by pharmacist Suzy Cohen for a full list of nutrient depletion by prescription medicines].

That is the vacuum into which SVHI, integrative, functional and German Biological Medicine are rapidly growing – because these more holistic approaches can get results.

Rather than look at the macro level of a person aging and deteriorating under a series of crippling chronic degenerative diseases and risky expensive invasive procedures, true integrative medicine (like your auto mechanic) looks for root causes of problems that manifest in different ways. You may judge a tree by its fruit – but good results are due to many small things that go right. Thus wellness doesn’t begin at the whole person level – it begins at the cellular level. As above (macro, the person) so below (micro, the cells and their components such as mitochondria and membranes).

Longevity and regenerative abilities begin with having efficient mitochondria which provides energy to all cells. Maintaining a high metabolic rate has shown to increase life span, by increasing NAD+.

Energy production can be increased by reducing things that get in the way of glucose oxidation, cellular respiration in the mitochondria, or thyroid hormone function. This list of things to reduce includes PUFAs (polyunsaturated fatty acids), lactic acid, serotonin, nitric oxide, tryptophan, estrogen. The steps to increase health and longevity will be discussed.

Dr. Bernd Friedlander, D.C., has a Bachelors Degree in Physical Education with emphasis in applied kinesiology from San Francisco State University, and a Doctorate of Chiropractic Degree from the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic.

He has been involved in developing nutritional therapies since 1982. As result of his therapeutic formulas, he pioneered the research and use of nutrition and free form amino acids for improving athletic performance as a safe alternative to steroids
