Dr. Erik’s Anti-Aging Tip of the Day – Intermittent Fasting

By Dr. Erik Fleischman –

Why not forgo breakfast and extend your fast from last night’s dinner until lunch time?

I recommend 4-5 glasses of warm water with lemon (and black coffee ☕ if you must!) until lunch. This is an intermittent fast

  • Increases natural growth hormone
  • Decreases total body inflammation
  • Lowers your risk of Diabetes, Obesity and Alzheimers /Dementia. 
Even doing this just 5 times a month has shown a statistical health benefit!

Dr. Erik’s Anti-Aging Tip of the Day – Mitochondria

By Dr. Erik Fleischman –

The Mitochondria are your Absolute Energy centers for the body. A lot of Anti-Aging Therapy is now directed at getting these tiny cellular work horses to function at their peak.

Proper nutrition, certain nutraceuticals and especially exercise stimulate these tiny organelles to give you your best energetic day and even your best cognitive function.

BAAC has treatments specifically designed to increase Mitochondrial Function.

Dr. Erik’s Anti-Aging Tip of the Day – Vitamin C

By Dr. Erik Fleischman –

Vitamin C: Is it really an immune booster and anti-viral treatment or is that just a myth? 🤔🤔 

I’ve been using high dose intravenous Vitamin C for my patients since 1992. Initially I was using it for clients with HIV/AIDS before we had proper treatment. High doses of Vitamin C seemed to calm the “viral storms” and increase energy and lower fatigue.

But is there any science to it?

Here are some facts:

  • Vitamin C causes differentiation and enhancement of immune B & T cells likely on a genetic level
  • Vitamin C Deficiency impairs immunity and makes you more susceptible to infections
  • In turn, infections impact vitamin C levels due to increased inflammation and metabolic requirements. Vicious circle!
  • Vitamin C accumulates in immune cells (Neutrophils), the first line of bacterial and viral defenses, and enhanced oxidation – the method that immune cells use to kill viruses and bacteria
  • Vitamin C makes the epithelial cells of the skin a stronger barrier against environmental stress and infections that would enter through the hands and the skin

My 30+ years of experience using IV vitamin C (and other combinations) have shown me the effectiveness of IV vitamins when used for the right reasons.

Dr. Erik’s Anti-Aging Tip of the Day – Human Growth Hormone (HGH)

By Dr. Erik Fleischman –
 
Know your Growth Hormone!
 
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) — produced by your own brain – is your most powerful defense against aging. When your HGH is at its peak levels, nearly every cell in your body – heart, kidneys, liver, muscles, hair, skin, etc. – regenerate to healthy new cells quickly and effectively.
 
Aging slows down! You can boost your own HGH or – if it is too low for your age – you can boost or add HGH to significantly slow the aging process.
 
Here’s a few ways you can start to increase your own HGH as early as today:
 
Human Growth Hormone is the closest thing we have to the Fountain of Youth.

Dr. Erik’s Anti-Aging Tip of the Day – Melatonin

By Dr. Erik Fleischman –

One of the hottest topics in Regenerative Medicine these days is good old reliable Melatonin.

We’ve all been told to use it for sleep, but the powers of this supplement go further than a good night’s sleep.

First the facts:

After the age of 40, melatonin produced by the body drops by 1% each year. It’s no coincidence that sleep gets worse as we get older.

Melatonin is also responsible for:

  • Increased mitochondrial activity and ATP production – your source of all energy
  • It is the building block of nearly every hormone in the body including Estrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone
  • Melatonin has Neuro-protective properties – saves the brain cells
  • Melatonin can raise natural Growth Hormone production

Dr. Erik’s Anti-Aging Tip of the Day – Probiotics

By Dr. Erik Fleischman –

The push for the use of probiotics came to the public media a few years ago and a lot of people felt it was another “fad” and trend. But here are the scientific facts that made me a believer:

  • The health of your brain and cognition depends largely on a number of internal hormones like seratonin and melatonin. Both of these naturally produced hormones are key to a protected, fully functioning brain.
  • Both melatonin and seratonin are also produced in the gut – the GI tract.
  • The more healthy your gut, the better the production of both these essential chemicals.

There’s a number of other reasons why probiotics should be a priority for those looking to stay younger and healthier. I will be discussing these in future blogs.

If you have any questions about the use of probiotics please contact us to speak to a specialist for more details.

Dr. Erik’s Anti-Aging Tip of the Day – Ginger Gingerol

By Dr. Erik Fleischman –

Yes, you read it right. Ginger (the root, not the redheads) has tremendous health benefits. And, as I will always point out, there is science and biology behind this statement.

Ginger from the Zingiberaceae family contains an oil called Gingerol. This chemical has strong anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties.

I started recommending fresh ginger tea (without sugar) for my patients with HIV/AIDS who were taking 20+ pills a day and experiencing terrible reflux and stomach acid pains.

The relief for ulcers and reflux is nearly instant and removes the need for chronic use of medicines like Histamine-2 blockers and Proton Pump inhibitors (Omeprazole) that now have proven negative cardiac effects.

  • Safely stops nausea in pregnant women and in people with Gastroenteritis
  • Reduces tendency for Diabetes Mellitus
  • Increased blood flow to the kidneys
  • Excellent addition for an Intermittent detox

Dr. Erik’s Anti-Aging Tip of the Day – Sleep Deprivation & Insomnia

By Dr. Erik Fleischman –
Are you sleeping?

The greatest current health risk to humanity is not Covid-19. It is actually sleep deprivation and insomnia. If you get less than 7 hours sleep per night year after year you significantly raise your risk of:

  • Obesity/Failed weight loss
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Depression
  • Early Hormone Failure /Menopause
  • Cancer

This has already been proven in a number of scientific medical trials. I’ve heard people joke about “I’ll sleep when I’m dead.” As it turns out this is far too accurate. Getting adequate sleep will change and enhance the energy in your life.

If you have questions on how to fix your sleeping problem WITHOUT the use of addictive sleeping pills and sedatives please contact us for more information. We are able to give about 75% of clients good restful sleep after the first consultation.

Dr. Erik’s Anti-Aging Tip of the Day – What is Human Growth Hormone IGF-1?

By Dr. Erik Fleischman –

IGF-1 insulin-like growth factor, may be the most important value to know about yourself.

This hormone, which is produced in your brain, will essentially predict:
  • How fast or slow you will age.
  • How likely you are to develop life shortening metabolic syndromes including high cholesterol, obesity and cardiac disease.

Most people only know about Growth Hormone as something that star athletes and movie stars use to prolong their careers. The truth is that this hormone is the substance that is most likely The Real Fountain of Youth for All Humans.

More study is being directed towards IGF-1 and Growth Hormone as there is already proof that maintaining a high level of IGF-1 can actually reverse genetic age and genetic damage. We may soon be able to roll back the clock of aging. This treatment is available and has been available to my clients for the last 25 years.

If you’re interested in checking your own IGF-1 level and other important values to determine aging please contact us at Bangkok Anti-Aging Center today.

Dr. Erik’s Anti-Aging Tip of the Day: Brain Protection

By Dr. Erik Fleischman –

One of the hottest topics in Regenerative Medicine now is Neuroprotection or very simply, saving the brain cells! Many people have fears of increasing rates of Alzheimers Disease, Parkinsons and Senile Dementia.

The brain, unlike other organs, has a limited number of neurons that don’t regenerate easily like muscle or bone. Therefore protecting them is essential – especially for those who may drink too much, hold too much stress and stay awake at night.

The substances that have been shown to help protect brain cells are Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Coenzyme Q10, Ginko Biloba and GABA to name a few. Also Melatonin and Cannabinoid Receptor Agonists like CBD add great value.

While these are protective, what can be done for those who are already experiencing loss of cognitive brain function? In tomorrow’s tip we will dig deeper into the treatments available for these patients.
