Board Certified Internal Medicine
My Own First Patient
In my mid-50s I felt as though my body was rapidly deteriorating. Drained of energy, mentally and physically depressed, I had lost my former enthusiasm for life. Unable to concentrate, I was barely able to work. I couldn’t help wondering if such disturbing changes happened to everyone over 50 or if this experience was unique to me. When I turned to my colleagues in the medical community, they were not reassuring. They confirmed my worst fears — that I was just going through the natural process of aging and should learn to accept my new diminished self. Fortunately for all of us, I refused to accept a diagnosis that meant the life I loved was over.
I began a long, difficult, but ultimately life-changing, exploration of existing data and personal insight, a journey that took several years. Gradually I discovered reasons for, and methods to reverse, the symptoms that plagued me. By using a multi-modality, rejuvenating lifestyle to recharge my batteries, my premature aging miraculously faded and my optimal physical and mental functioning returned. I was, of course, delighted, but one question continued to trouble me: In this age of sophisticated medical science why did I, a board certified, knowledgeable doctor of internal medicine, have so much trouble finding solutions that should have been readily available?
I made a thrilling, transformative decision. I opened a medical practice of advanced, preventive, regenerative medicine — the Southern California Center for Anti-Aging — realizing my dream to help others reach the pinnacle of mental and physical fitness I now enjoy. It continues to be exhilarating and fulfilling to enable my patients to achieve full health, productivity, and joy.
