This is a myth as pervasive as the cholesterol myth that took us around 40 years to come around to. Mind you, the research showing that cholesterol in food was NOT the issue has been around since the 80ies - research lead by Danish doctor Uffe Ravnskov. Indeed it seems that frequently lower levels of testosterone present a greater risk of prostate cancer than higher levels (1,2). A review of data from the National Institutes of Health revealed that, in men of advancing age, “high testosterone levels are not associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer, nor are low testosterone levels protective against prostate cancer” (3). In one of the most comprehensive reviews done on the subject they looked at 18 studies which investigated serum concentrations of androgen and estrogen in 3,886 men with prostate cancer with those in 6,438 healthy controls. There was no significant associations between the risk of prostate cancer and sex hormone levels (4).Read More
Mercury poisoning is epidemic in everyone over 40+.
Dental fillings - even if they have been removed - being one of the main causes.
I can’t stand the word detox frankly. Yet I use it more than any other word in my practice these days. It is one of the core things I do today, because the lab testing I do is repeatedly showing that most issues you guys are coming in with are due to blockages in the system due to various accumulated toxins. Most symptoms can be traced back to different toxins that are interfering with the body’s ability to function and repair normally. Sidenote: For those of you who were at my talk in Øksnehallen in Copenhagen Sunday 30th of September I am attaching handouts for the talk as promised - click here to download the notes (DANISH only).Read More
Some of you know that I do thermography scans in addition to advanced laboratory testing in my practice. A thermography - also known as infrared scan - is able to often detect disease before they manifest. Thermography is able to see the onset of tissue changes (inflammation) before a solid tumor can be seen with mammography. When we already have solid tumors, there have been often 5-10 years of tissues changes going on. It is a much more difficult path to treat disease in the late stages than in the early stages. We can prevent disease if we detect the first imbalances early.Read More
One of my biggest pet-peeves is genetically modified crops. Not only is it incredibly bad for our health as is proven in independent studies time and time again, but it has far more dangerous consequences for us at a global as well as individual level.Read More
Fats fuel your mitochondria
One of the most typical things I see on the lab testing I do is mitochondrial dysfunction. Now if your last biology class was decades ago, this might seem a bit iffy to you. So here is the deal on our mitochondria in short: our mitochondria power the biochemical reactions in our cells.When our mitochondria are not functioning at their peak, we feel tired, lethargic and age quicker.Read More
Men have specific nutrition needs based on the hormonal blueprint - think testosterone as it is involved in fat burn, good mood, immune health, brain function, stamina, sex drive and erectile function. The majority of the health concerns men have stem from hormonal imbalances, which can already start to decline in your late twenties, depending on lifestyle stressors, addictions, diet etc.Read More
Customized nutrition is matched to your biochemical blueprint - that's beyond diet fads and gimmicks. We all need to understand our biochemistry to nourish our health and avoid triggers unique for our body. No Size Fits All - No Diet Will Ever Fit All. I don't care if it's vegan, paleo, Dr Whatever's diet - there is no such thing as one-fits-all. The only way to take the guess work out of what will work for your body is to get tested.Read More
When you take supplements you need them to also be actually ABSORBED to benefit from them. Unfortunately, it is not as simple as buying a mineral tablet, as many companies have not bothered looking into the bioavailability, nor how minerals compete for absorption. Minerals that compete for absorption should quite obviously NOT be taken at the same time, because you will not absorb them fully then. So what about zinc and magnesium - two crucial minerals for brain, muscle, hormone and male sexual health - should you take them together or apart to benefit from them?Read More
