  • Health care provider and “consumer”
  • The politicians are constantly told that MD ’s in the US are making too much. This is a graph from one of the consultants for one of the government policy making. This is for family medicine.
  • Beneficiaries going up; workers going down to support them.
  • First thing politicians have to do is serve their constiuents – to “maintain the current perceived benefit of the structure.” Next priority is taxes – “You will protect your constituency.” Republicans want tax cuts for everybody. Democrats – protecting their constituency. “Tax the rich” Both see the same problems. Their solution is different. Next, doctors will fight with the hospitals and organizations for reimbursements.
  • This represents a disconnect between the AMA and physicians.
  • In the 1960 ’s and 1970’s – when it was known that someone’s child was becoming a doctor, it was viewed as a great accomplishment.
  • Giuseppe Mazzini (22 June 1805 – 10 March 1872), nicknamed "Soul of Italy,"[1] was an Italian politician, journalist and activist for the unification of Italy. His efforts helped bring about the independent and unified Italy[2] in place of the several separate states, many dominated by foreign powers, that existed until the 19th century. He also helped define the modern European movement for popular democracy in a republican state. [ citation needed ] – Source - Wikipedia
  • The incidence of drug abuse was compared in 56 medicated ADHD patients, 19 non-medicated ADHD patients, and 137 non-ADHD control subjects [Biederman 1999 pe21] Non-medicated ADHD patients were at a significantly higher risk for substance abuse than controls or medicated ADHD patients [Biederman 1999 pe22-23] There was no significant difference between medicated ADHD patients and controls (chi-squared=3.7, P =0.15) [Biederman 1999 pe22-23] Medication is associated with an 85% reduction in the risk of substance abuse in ADHD patients [Biederman 1999 pe22-23] Poor compliance is often a more significant problem than addiction [Garland, 1998 p 387-388]

  • “ The mind, once expanded to the dimensions of larger ideas, never returns to its original size.” - Oliver Wendell Holmes
  • H - “ There are two objects of medical education: to heal the sick and to advance the science.” - Dr. Charles H. Mayo, MD “ The glory of medicine is that it is always moving forward, that there is always more to learn.” - Dr. William J. Mayo
  • Ethics and financial/logistical practicalities of these lectures
    • Nothing is more important than taking care of the patient.
    • “ The needs of the patient come first.” (Dr. Will Mayo, MD)
    • The current “medical model” is at variance with what is ethical, moral, and factual.
    • If the physician is not stable and financially secure, the system implodes.
    • If the system implodes, the patient suffers.
  • Background
  • Death Optimal Health Traditional Medicine Hormone Modulation No Disease = Health Diet, Exercise Nutritional Supplementation “ Wellness [integrated] Medicine” Diagnose and Treat Disease New Drugs New Surgical Techniques Forestall and PREVENT Disease – Optimize Function
  • “ But my patients don’t know about this and aren’t asking for it….”
    • “ It’s not the consumers’ job to know what they want.”
    • - Steve Jobs
  • Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.  -  World Health Organization
  • American Journal of Health Promotion; November/December, 2002 19% of those surveyed were completely healthy with high levels of both physical and mental health and a low level of illness . 18.8% completely unhealthy, defined as having low levels of health with high levels of illness. Two-thirds of the adults reported some degree of mental or physical illness that kept them from being completely healthy. “ Incompletely healthy.” HEALTH continuum DEAD OPTIMAL 66% “ Incompletely healthy”
  • Outline
    • Overview of concepts
    • My bias – a practice model
    • Current state of allopathic medicine
    • Microchip as disruptor and disintermediator
      • (“Change or die”)
    • Current state of patients and society
    • What’s your model? Chloraseptic or PCN?
    • How to start changing….
  • The evolution of my practice
    • Sidetracked in high school, two degrees in music (’ 77 and ’ 79) and learned piano tuning
    • 1976 – 1989 – piano tuning (through pre-med and med school). “fee for service”
    • 1989-1993 – conventional allopathic psychiatry residency at Mayo Clinic
    • 1993 – start practice. 1995 – l-tyrosine and EFA’s
    • 2002 – first IFM conference
    • 2003 – Cenegenics training
    • 2005 – founded Cady Wellness Institute
    • 2010 – 2011 – Neil Rouzier, MD & WorldLink
    • 2012 – rTMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation)
  • May 2002: 9 th Annual IFM Conference
  • The Functional Medicine component Dead Doctors Don ’t Lie - Joel Wallach, DVM, ND
  • Cady Wellness Institute – July 2005 The Reasons:
    • Conventional medical practice had failed me twice.
    • A lot of “psychiatric cases” WEREN’T “psychiatric.”
    • Nobody was integrated.
    • Nobody was looking at ALL of the peer-reviewed literature.
  • Current socioeconomic state and allopathic (“conventional”) medicine – DISRUPTIVE NOTIONS
    • CONVENTIONAL Allopathic medicine = symptom focused, reactive, “taught,” unthinking, uncreative, PRACTICALLY non-informed by peer-reviewed medical literature.
      • Commoditized. No variability. “ Providers. ”
    • Wellness medicine: individualized. Can’t get it elsewhere. Not a commodity. Scientific. Informed by peer-reviewed literature.
      • Concept of “information brokering” (example: THYROID)
  • Healthcare “Reform” Today
    • Today: Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (P.L. 111-148) – includes amendments from the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 (H.R. 4872)

  • “ Slumber not in the tents of your fathers. The world is advancing. Advance with it.” - Giuseppe Mazzine
  • Some interesting thoughts:
    • “ The war situation has developed not necessarily to Japan’s advantage..”
-  Japanese Emperor Hirohito after the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, announcing Japan’s surrender to the Allies
    • “ A naïve analysis of stability is derived from the absence of past variations” (or “The Turkey Problem”)

    • 16,103 people – 1994 – 1996.
    • ZERO got 100% of all required vitamins and nutrients
    • - Highest – B12 =- 82.8% got enough
    • 66.8% - had adequate folate
    • Lowest – Zinc – only 26.6% got enough .
  • “ Take homes”: Low folate is associated with elevated homocysteine, which is associated with neuronal damage.
  • “ Take homes”: If you smoke, and if your FA levels are not optimum, “homozygous” [double SNP] 5MTHFR mutated individuals are at higher risk of elevated homocysteine
  • “ Take homes” [this slide and following]: Elevated homocysteine is definitely not good for you!
  • Wang X et al. Homocysteine induces cardiomyocyte dysfunction and apoptosis through p38MAPK-meidated increase in oxidant stress. J Mol Cell Cardiol. 2011 Dec 29. Epub. Accessed 1 21 2012. “ Hcy may increase the risk for CVD not only by causing endothelial dysfunction , but also by directly exerting detrimental effects on cardiomyocytes. ”
  • Factors trapping physicians
    • “ Doing it, doing it, doing it.” (Michael Gerber, The E-Myth )
    • Already time-pressured –
      • Minimal time to think or plan
      • PROBABLY ADRENALLY DEPLETED ALREADY, perhaps with suboptimal thyroid and sex hormones
    • Must “make overhead.”
    • Can’t “take chances.”
    • Trapped by “provider panel” arrangements, including cut rate fees. (Alcoa story)
  • The Baby Boomers & Their Expectations The first time the entire Baby Boom generation is impacting a single market ALL at the same time!
  • Let’s look at the logic. How would you take care of a classic? “ Chronic diseases affect at least 125 million Americans & cost more than $500 billion last year.” Centers for DiseaseControl – Dec 2003
  • “ Age management” “Conventional practice” There are fuel additives we can use to keep our cars burning cleaner and preserve engines. No fuel additives should be used. They are unnatural. Gas is all that is required. We should use optimal quality of gas. Cheap gas causes “pinging” which is hard on the engine. The quality of the gas is irrelevant. Anything that the motor will burn is adequate. We should take our car in for preventive maintenance before anything breaks. Preventive maintenance? This is silly! Wait until something breaks, then have the car towed in so the mechanic can really tell what is wrong.
  • Modern Medicine ’s Paradigm: Two Standard Deviations – “if you are not sick, then you must be well.” “ NORMAL” OPTIMAL? OPTIMAL
  • Definition of “normal labs”:

    • Must DECIDE
      • Must have INFO (e.g., this weekend)
      • Must INTROSPECT
    • Must have something LEGITIMATE to offer
    • Start SMALL – both with interventions and logistics/financial
      • E.g, ¼ grain Armour, or Cytomel 5 MICROgrams, or Cortef 5 mg twice daily, or FDA approved testosterone for guys
      • E.g. – ½ day per week – “hormones”

    • Mitochondrial diseases are due to impairment of chemical reactions.
    • A reasonable theory is oxidative stress.
    • Few studies have actually been done on this.
    • Glutathione deficiency is known in mitochondrial disease.
    • Biosynthesis of glutathione depends on cysteine availability.
    • “ Our findings reinforce the notions that in mitochondrial disease, oxidative stress is important and can be reduced by administration of a cysteine donor.”
