Dr. Erik's Tip of the Day

Regenerative Medicine is one of the most rapidly changing and advancing fields of medicine in the 21st century. Trying to decide which treatments, behaviors and supplements are right for you (and equally important - what is NOT right for you) can be confusing. I have used my 30 years of experience as a Cancer Specialist, Infectious Disease Specialist and Regenerative Medicine Physician to put together my thoughts and tips on what I think are the most important issues on aging and health. Some are simple and some quite complex. I hope you will find something interesting that can improve your health, energy and enjoyment of life. As always if you have any questions or comments please let us know. BAAC is dedicated to the good health of people from all over the world.
