Revolutionizing Health: A Guide to Optimal Wellness

As an orthobiologic physician with a focus on cutting-edge pain management and health optimization, I'm excited to share insights on maintaining a healthy weight, managing blood sugar levels, and enhancing overall well-being.

The Foundation of Health: Bone Marrow and Body Repair

Our health is akin to a flourishing garden; it thrives when the soil is fertile. In the realm of orthobiologics, we consider bone marrow transplants or PRP as vital 'seeds' planted in this garden to foster healing and repair. A key to preparing this 'soil' involves minimizing reliance on nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (e.g., Advil, Naprosyn), unless medically necessary (like aspirin for stroke prevention). These changes significantly enhance the effectiveness of orthobiologic treatments.

Balancing Hormones for Holistic Health After 40, hormone balance becomes crucial for optimal health. I advocate for consulting with competent bioidentical hormone specialists to tailor treatments that complement your body's needs. This approach not only aids in successful orthobiologic treatments but also supports overall vitality.

Staying Slim for Joint and Cardiovascular Health A healthy weight is essential for reducing joint pressure and promoting heart health. High blood sugar levels are often linked with accelerated aging. An efficient immune response relies on maintaining these levels within an optimal range. Personally, I aim for a fasting blood sugar below 100 and post-meal levels under 130.

Personal Experience: The Power of Continuous Glucose Monitoring I consulted with Dr. Connie Casad, a renowned hormone specialist located in Dallas, Texas, to address my weight concerns and sugar cravings. She recommended using a Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM). This device offers real-time insights into blood sugar levels, allowing for more informed dietary choices. I noticed that foods like avocados and certain nuts had minimal impact on my blood sugar.

The Journey to a Healthier Self After adjusting my diet based on CGM data, I noticed remarkable improvements – a flatter belly and enhanced mental clarity. While these devices may not be covered by insurance for non-diabetics, the investment in your health is invaluable.
