Some people resort to pills and surgery for anti aging treatment. But some people use a hollistic approach and this is what the former chief of medicine and head of the cancer program at North Memorial Medical Center has to say about it..
Anti-Aging Medicine: Amelia’s Look Into A Medical Controversy
Would you like a little extra energy? Most people would.
That’s why coffee shops and supplements are all so popular. But when I started having insomnia and feeling run down and irritable, I knew I needed more than a cup of coffee.
At first, I thought it was early menopause, or worse. It turns out, many women in their 30s and 40s have similar symptoms of weariness and irritability.
The solution I found not only has me feeling more energetic and stronger; it also opened my eyes to a growing controversy in women’s medicine.
At first, I turned to Bonnie Erickson, a friend, who suggested I see an anti-aging doctor who had worked wonders for her.
“Immediately I felt as though things were different,” she said. “I felt like I had my quality of life back.”
She’s been seeing Dr. Khalid Mahmud for eight years. And after disappointing results with traditional medicine, she swears by his combination of holistic treatments and natural hormones.
“I just think it’s a more natural approach,” Bonnie said. “It’s more of a preventative approach.”
Over the years, she’s convinced most of her family, including her husband and two of her daughters, to see Mahmud.
One of her daughters, Keri Fuqua, had symptoms similar to mine. She also said her treatment with Mahmud was successful – so successful that I couldn’t help thinking that I needed to see him myself.
Mahmud is a former chief of medicine and head of the cancer program at North Memorial Medical Center. His walls are covered with board certifications.
But after a career spent fighting diseases, he has spent the last 10 years trying to prevent them. Mahmud says anti-aging is about feeling younger, regaining lost energy and keeping the body in tune.
He takes a holistic approach, testing everything from your thyroid to diabetes and cholesterol. But with women, he says, the problem is often in their hormones.
Basically a hollistic approach is a natural approach treatment. He uses bioidenticals that are derived from plants and vegetables, however, it was under scrutiny as it was said to cause cancer..
