How Billionaires Spend Their Money

         What would you buy if you were a billionaire? I sometimes ask myself that question in my down time, whether being stuck in traffic, in dinner conversation, or when I am trying to fall asleep. Would you want to get a nice new house (or two!), a rare sports car, or maybe do some traveling to exotic and exclusive locations. But what’s next? As it turns out, I would probably spend the money a lot like the guys who are billionaires.

Working Out – an Essential Ingredient in Staying Lean, Young, and Healthy at Any Age.

By Dr. Bartley Harvard Kerr, DC

 

Often times when I meet new patients or potential patients, their fascination lies into bio identical hormone replacement and if it is right for them. I explained to them that if it is deemed that they are deficient in certain hormones and they are replaced, they will feel much better. When people feel better, they have the ability to Continue reading

What You’re Saying Sounds Great, But Doesn’t This Stuff Cause Cancer?

Many times when discussing hormone replacement therapy with patients and friends, the subject often comes up that they heard somewhere that treatment can cause cancer. Where did this come from and is it a legitimate concern? I will try to shed some light on this, utilizing some of the highest regarded journals, studies, and esteemed physician input to lay down the facts.

Normal versus Optimal

While discussing bio-identical hormone replacement therapy with patients, often the subject of normal hormone levels and optimal levels comes up. “Normal” levels are those ranges revealed in a blood test that the medical community designates to a certain hormone. In the instance for the hormone testosterone in men, a normal total testosterone value is often used. The “normal” range is between 250 to 1100 ng/dL., quite a large distance between the two numbers!

Why Rejuvination Medicine?

Many times I get asked “what is rejuvenation medicine?” or “how did you get started in that?” The first question I will answer in a minute, but the second question can be answered simply – by necessity!

My name is Dr. Bartley Harvard Kerr and I run National Rejuvenation Centers in Palm Harbor. I have had a lifelong fascination with nutrition, hormone balance, genetics and exercise. I have treated thousands of people with conservative regimens, but realize many people, especially those over the age of 35, are not “playing chess with all the pieces” or more specifically, their hormone levels are low or out of synch. People gain weight, lose muscle, their libido, etc., and this can further manifest to more serious developments as sickness and eventually death. You have to love the aging process! Continue reading

Weight Loss and HGH (Effects of Growth Hormone on Body Composition)

This study was published in 1990 in the New England Journal of Medicine. The ad­ministration of human growth hormone for six months was accompanied by an 8.8 % increase in lean body mass, a 14.4 % decrease in adipose-tissue mass, and a 23.2% improvement in overall body composition. There was a 1.6% increase in average lumbar vertebral bone density, and skin was transformed into a much more youthful appearance with significantly less wrinkles and increased thickness of 7.1 percent.

Low testosterone linked to long-term risk of death in relatively healthy adult men

This study is another major report linking deficiency of testosterone in relatively healthy men with increased death from all causes, over time. “We have followed these men for an average of 18 years and our study strongly suggests that the association between testos­terone levels and death is not simply due to some acute illness,” said Gail Laughlin, Ph.D., assistant professor and study author.
