Your Brain is Your Most Important Asset

June 19, Juno Beach, FL- As part of a Community Networking event to promote pro-active health management, Floridian Community Bank sponsored a talk on Brain Fitness and Executive Stress Management by Harlan C. Bieley, M.D., of the Healthy Living and Longevity Medical Center last week at their branch office in Juno Beach. "Its part of the bank's commitment to offer highly personalized customer-focused services", said branch manager Teresa Flynn. "Dr. Bieley's talk was well received by our clients."

"Exciting, interesting, useful" were some of the comments by attendees. "It is a vital part of our quest for a healthy lifestyle, and helps us to achieve our peak performance. The brain fitness exercises provided by Dr. Bieley are particularly helpful and very much appreciated," commented Irma Carol Tybuszynski, a participant at the presentation.

"Your brain is your most important asset", said Dr. Bieley. "This new, cutting edge preventative medicine is all about 'quality of life'. That means having a body that meets your daily demands, and having a brain that is sharp, alert, and performs at its peak potential. If you are functioning well at work and at leisure and feeling great, your life just becomes better and more enjoyable and your goals become more attainable."

Dr. Bieley described harmful items that interfere with good brain function as well as what modern medicine can do to promote brain health. Gluten intolerance, as an example, has been shown to increase anxiety and alters regional blood flow in the brain. There is a plethora of mental and physical exercises, foods and nutritional supplements to improve brain fitness. He explained how hormones influence brain function and fitness and told of exciting and powerful new non-drug brain training therapies to improve brain fitness such as neurofeedback training, also known as EEG biofeedback. Neurofeedback training sessions lasting just 30 minutes at a time may increase alertness, attention, and cognitive functioning in general and can be used to treat and relieve stress, anxiety, depression, ADD/ADHD, and more. "It is a vital part of an overall treatment plan", remarked Dr. Bieley.

Dr. Bieley further said, "There are many sensible things that can be done to improve brain fitness. People are hungry for this information and will, if given the information, make good use of it to better their lives. After all, your brain is your most important asset".

Approximately 90% of All Breast Cancers are Environmentally-Caused


Harlan C. Bieley, M.D., Says These Breast Cancers Can Be Avoided or Preempted

Technology, Nutrition and Lifestyle Changes are the Keys

May 30, 2008, North Palm Beach, FL- Healthy Living and Longevity Medical Center -Women's genes are bathed in their environment. Changing the environment can alter the expression of modifiable genes, which in turn can allow a woman to avoid or preempt environmentally-caused breast cancers. Healthy Living and Longevity Medical Center Founder Harlan C. Bieley, M.D., states, "A woman's genes need not be her destiny. Some genes are modifiable through the combination of technology, nutrition and lifestyle changes. These are the genes women's health care plans should focus upon."

The technology component is a laboratory test which identifies single nucleotide polymorphisms ("SNPs", mercifully pronounced snips). SNPs indicate to a trained physician a woman's genetic susceptibility to developing an environmentally-caused breast cancer. Based on the identity of the SNPs, physicians such as Dr. Bieley develop a customized medical care plan to alter the expression of the abnormal genes. Altering the expression of the genes can result in the avoidance or preemption of environmentally-caused breast cancer. Dr. Bieley commented, "It is unconscionable that the popular media and many medical professionals talk only of treating and curing cancer. There ought to be public education about preempting and avoiding the approximate 90% of all breast cancers which are environmentally-caused."

Useful tools for altering a gene's expression are through dietary enhancements and nutritional supplementation. Dietary supplementation is used to increase good estrogen metabolites (breakdown products) or decrease bad estrogen. Estrogen balance in women is also a major component in the avoidance and preemption of environmentally-caused breast cancer. A diet rich in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, broccoli sprouts, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collards and Bok Choy has demonstrated a 50% to 75% elevation in the good metabolism of estrogen.

Dr. Bieley remarks, "Lifestyle changes are the final piece of the puzzle. Women must make good lifestyle choices. Making tough choices, changing detrimental behavior and sticking to that plan, such as reducing alcohol consumption, increasing antioxidants in an antioxidant-poor diet, ingesting dietary fiber and lignins (found in flax seeds and beans), reducing high blood sugar and increasing phytonutrients, are essential to changing the expression of modifiable genes to prevent and preempt environmentally-caused breast cancers." Obesity greatly effects how the body metabolizes estrogen. Moderate exercise, a diet high in cruciferous vegetables and appropriate dietary supplements including Indole-3-Carbinol (I3C) or DIM, Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA/DHA), Vitamins B-6, B-12 and Folate, Calcium D-Glucarate, SAMe, and supplements that increase glutathione, greatly reduce the likelihood a woman will develop an environmentally-induced breast cancer.

Researchers have identified fifty chemicals that imitate estrogen. These are called xenoestrogens. They are toxic to a woman's body. Sources of xenoestrogens are pesticides, food microwaved in cellophane, synthetic hormones fed to animals, plastics (such as soft plastic water bottles) and cosmetics. Avoiding these xenoestrogens is a positive lifestyle change. "The bottom line for women today is to recognize the dangers in the environment in which they live and how they need to alter it. These are huge factors in reducing their genetic susceptibility to developing environmentally-caused breast cancer." Dr. Bieley continued, "Focusing on treatments and cures is insufficient. A woman's focus must also encompass prevention and reducing toxic exposure."

The journey to changing a woman's environment and thereby her modifiable genes' expressions begins with proper laboratory testing. Only after conducting laboratory testing can physicians such as Dr. Bieley create a customized medical and wellness plan that incorporates the appropriate nutrition and lifestyle changes. Dr. Bieley's advice: "Start today. The polluted environment is running at breakneck speed against women's health."

The purpose of Healthy Living and Longevity Medical Center is to assist people of all ages in improving their overall health and vitality so that they can function higher physically, mentally, and where age appropriate, sexually.

Testosterone Deficiency an Under Diagnosed Reality Facing Countless Men
Harlan C. Bieley, M.D., Calls Testosterone Replacement Critical to Quality of Life

"Testosterone-What Makes Men - Men"

April 17, 2008, North Palm Beach, FL-Healthy Living and Longevity Medical Center Founder Harlan C. Bieley, M.D., says countless men are testosterone deficient and few know it. Testosterone levels gradually decline as a man ages, decreasing approximately 1.5 percent per year after age 30. The effects of low testosterone levels include a pervasive sense of fatigue, decreased muscle mass, strength and bone density, insulin resistance, decreased sex drive, poor erections, and irritability, feelings of depression and loss of self confidence. The most prevalent causes of testosterone decrease are aging and suppression by drugs and disease. A recent report in the Archives of Internal Medicine showed that over a four-year period of time men who have low testosterone levels after age 40 may have a higher risk of death than those with normal levels of the hormone.

Doctor Bieley stated emphatically, "Men must understand the critical importance of testosterone to overall wellness and healthy aging. Be it physically, mentally or sexually, if men are to feel and function at their optimum level, testosterone is the fuel. Life's journey without a full tank of testosterone is going to be a trip cut short and one devoid of its full potential for enjoyment." Testosterone replacement therapy is not for every man. But the overall benefits to an individual's quality of life are too numerous to ignore.

Among the many benefits associated with testosterone replacement therapy are decreased heart disease, reduced hypertension, decreased inflammation, reduced risk of obesity, improved control oftype 2 diabetes, improved mental clarity, improved sexual function, and decreased irritability and depression. Doctor Bieley comments, "The health and lifestyle media have finally begun to pay more attention to the issues associated with low testosterone, but they have been slow to bring news of the benefits of testosterone replacement therapy." He continued, "All too much emphasis has been placed on testosterone and its association with performance enhancing drugs and illegal steroid abuse or sports doping."

Demonizing testosterone means that countless men will continue to suffer needlessly. How dynamic the suffering, is unique to every man. Testosterone replacement is a balancing act and should be performed by a physician experienced with the therapy. Dr. Bieley commented, "This is customized medicine, not one therapy fits all. Testosterone replacement therapy is undoubtedly beneficial for many men." Dr. Bieley finished his thought, "In this instance, I am the town crier. I put this information out to the public in hopes that they will use it. The more informed people are, the better equipped they are to make decisions regarding their own health and wellness. At the end of the day it's their life." Testosterone therapy is becoming an increasingly common aspect of healthy aging medicine. In 2006, over 3 million prescriptions were written for testosterone therapy. Failure to properly diagnose and treat testosterone deficiency can have long term negative consequences.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Harlan C. Bieley, M.D., Calls Stress Management a Useless Phrase
Extinguishing the Symptoms of Chronic Stress Takes Much More

Relief Achieved Through Combination of Medicine, Nutrition, Technology and Lifestyle Interventions

March 7, 2008, North Palm Beach, FL-Healthy Living and Longevity Medical Center Founder Harlan C. Bieley, M.D., says "stress management" is an alarming and utterly useless phrase. "Managing chronic stress is like managing a raging wild fire. If all a person does is manage the fire the fire will never go out. To find relief a person must extinguish it." Dr. Bieley continued, "Through a combination of medicine, nutrition, technology and lifestyle interventions, the fire-the dangerous symptoms of chronic stress such as waking up tired, frequently recurring illnesses, weight gain in spite of exercise and diet, cravings for sweets or salts, and diminished sex drive- can be relieved ."

The prime example of a medical treatment is the safe use of low doses of cortisone. Nutritional therapies include the use of vitamin C, pantothenic acid and other B vitamins. Substances called adaptogens serve to raise cortisol (a stress hormone) when it is low and lower it when it is high. The adrenal glands are the glands which allow a person to respond to stress. Technological treatments encompass EEG biofeedback training, and FDA approved electrical therapy for stress. Finally,examples of lifestyle interventions include meditation, massage, vacationing and increased exercise. "We need to become connoisseurs of relaxation," states Dr. Bieley.

The World Health Organization predicts that by the year 2020, stress-related depressive disorder will be the second leading cause of invalidity in the world (after cardiovascular disease which is related to stress). Dr. Bieley comments, "People need to know that the effects of chronic stress can lead to serious illnesses." He continued, "Managing chronic stress is one approach. My approach is different. I use a customized approach which leverages the quartet of medicine, nutrition, technology and lifestyle interventions. I firmly believe this quartet gives a person the very best chance of squelching the fire of chronic stress."

Harlan C. Bieley, M.D., is a Fellow of the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine. He is the first physician in Palm Beach County named to this distinguished group and one of only 14 in the entire state of Florida. Doctor Bieley is also Board Certified in the Clinical Science of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine from the American Board of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine.
