Gordon, MD Focuses On Anti-Aging Medicine
I went so far as to start the International College based upon longevity medicine because we found that the only other organization attempting to train doctors in
anti- aging medicine known as A4M, turned out to look too focused on money making and not focused enough on the science involved in making a program that would have more benefit than risk. We realize
that every decision that we make entails benefit and risk analysis. There is nothing you do, including getting in the car to drive to the doctors office that doesn't entail some risk. So, there ought
to be some benefit to offset that risk.
When I formed ICALM, we immediately found ourselves in the position of an unwanted competitor to both ACAM and A4M with very nasty attacks from those organizations. We did have two
successful meetings and we do now have some 29 doctors who started down the pathway of becoming trained in longevity medicine and are now board certified as diplomats in the field by the Board of
International Advanced Longevity Medicine in Chicago.
I'm a member of the American Aging Association for many years, I do attend meetings with the top researchers from the National Institute of Aging/NIH and other leading research institutions
and am extremely aware that there are breakthroughs that are on the drawing board from the Human Genome Project, Gene Therapy, Stem Cell Therapy, and what we would call Nutritional Minetics of calorie
restriction, but should clearly augment the anti-aging benefits we have already seen from those few courageous patients who have chosen to take from one hundred to three thousand intravenous chelation
therapies and look and function today often ten plus years younger than their actual chronological age.
As a physician in alternative medicine, it became very clear some years ago that patients and doctors inherently know many things that we should be doing like avoiding sugar, exercising more
and taking good doses of supplements etc. and eating less, but most of us tend not to do this without the eminent threat of a serious problem such as cancer. Interestingly, in my annual travel to Tokyo
where I do (unclear phrase) cancer therapies, in the most recent trip of April, 2001 I met Dr. Kyobishi who has the documentation that fifteen thousand of his patients followed now for almost fifteen years
have been able to remain entirely tumor free. This is done without drugs that merely by alerting people from his extensive panel of what I call cancer/tumor markers as to how close they are to developing
the clinical lump or bump stage where clinical cancer is diagnosed.
Patients it appears so for warned are able to make the simple dietary lifestyle supplements and start appropriate herbal support that is sufficient to enable the bodies immune system to
handle the threat of cancer that we all face every day of our life. Thus, it is interesting to realize that by age fifty, fifty percent of all men have prostate cancer, yet it does not have to be the cause
of death of the patient if they are taking some special effort to enhance their bodies overall level of function. It is my belief at this point in my career, at age 66 that one of the most expedient things
we can all do is exercise and avoid obvious pesticides and toxic food, high sugar, etc. and even more interestingly, utilize appropriate supplements. These supplements can most readily be understood if we
think of them as a method of helping our bodies detoxify. And it is not hard to understand that if we can take Bill Moyers on a CBS two hour special called Trade Secrets and draw his blood and test him for
a hundred and twenty two poisonous toxins like PCBs, dioxins, mercury and lead and he tested positive for 82 of them that those who are not as in tune as he has been since he has been interested in
alternative medicine for over fifteen years, will undoubtedly will have even higher levels of even more of these toxic substances.
Thus, my approach at the current time is not to put off till once a year and take a week out of your life and try to go through an intensive detoxification program. It is my advice that we
detoxify every day of our life so that the natural proven tendency of all humans on the planet as they age to have higher and higher levels of toxic metals in every cell of their body, particularly this
goes on faster when you have particularly weakened or sick tissues in your body such as in hypertrophic cardiopathy where according to the journal of cardiology one year ago the average heart cell had five
hundred percent more zinc and five hundred and twenty percent more cobalt and a thousand percent more antimony etc. than healthy cells contain.
Thus, I am teaching people that even though most fish today contains potentially dangerous levels of mercury, it's still a useful efficient protein and the Omega 3 fats in that same fish, so
why not be on an oral program each day that will aid your body in eliminating from either through the skin or through the bowels or the kidneys the toxins that we are all exposed to and not wait and put
off detoxification until we finally are diagnosed as being a cancer patient or auto immune disease patient with multiple sclerosis or a patient with serious heart or blood vessel disease.
