IGF-1 Growth Hormone Dosing

The Importance of IGF-1 Growth Hormone Dosing

For years, the Institute has been collecting data and research on many different cultures that never talk to each other; tracking blood work in Bodybuilders, triathletes, AIDS patients, cancer patients, and Sarcopenia (muscle wasting) in the elderly. When a patient takes growth hormone, physicians who prescribe them really have no knowledge of the dangers. The perfect storm for cancer is elevated IGF 1, elevated estrogen, and 8-hydroxy-2′ – deoxyguanosine (environmental toxins). IGF 1 Insulin-like growth factor is necessary for proper growth in children but new research shows men and women over 40 years of age are at a risk of tumor growth. Once cancer forms IGF 1 will promote its growth as well as that of normal cells, says Dr. Edward Giovannucci MD assistant professor at Harvard School of Public Health. Men with elevated IGF 1 have four times the risk of developing cancer and women have seven times the risk of developing breast cancer. At the Institute, several of our clients have been using growth hormone for years. Due to this concern, we’ve developed a model to maintain growth hormone by testing and rehabbing multiple systems. When talking about growth hormone, we can’t just think about a muscle and libido; we need to include the heart and the brain. All that extra muscle may look good but it’s metabolically wasteful. The Institute seeks to treat individuals as a whole, avoiding the miscommunications and errors associated with the current medical system.

At the Institute of Nutritional Medicine & Cardiovascular Research, our focus is to detect specific nutrient and hormonal deficiencies, develop programs that safely enhance metabolic functions and to prevent disease and improve the quality of life in the general population.

A Little Dirt Goes a Long Way

Recent studies indicate that efforts to sterilize the body and the things it comes in contact with are abnormal and may sometimes carry possible harmful consequences.

Your body is host to a microbiome; single-celled organisms called archaea that have naturally inhabited your gut, your respiratory tract, your skin, and other organs since the beginning of time. Click HERE to read a TED article on the benefits of microbes

According to some estimates there are ten times as many foreign microbes in your body as there are of your own cells and all together these microbes weigh several pounds. We have evolved over the years with these microbes as well as many other species of worms. The process has been in action since millions of years, which explains why most of your microbiomes are either harmless or they perform important functions in the body as well as help you digest the food and clean your skin and scalp.

You depend on these critters as much as they depend on you to survive. Fortunately most of the antibiotics and anti-parasitic drugs we use don’t kill the entire microbiome; however, excessive use of these harmful medications does eliminate some helpful microbes whose absence may actually contribute to new diseases.
