Your DNA is not your Destiny


Your DNA Is No Longer Your Destiny


Is your destiny written in your DNA? For years, scientists believed that a person’s DNA – the complex genetic code that carries all the information needed for your growth and development – was a fixed and unchanging set of “instructions” that directed the body’s processes from birth to death. But new insights from the emerging field of epigenetics suggest that these genetic instructions can be modified by external factors, with profound implications for health, wellness, disease and the aging process.

Wellness Knows no Age Limits


It’s never too late to turn your health around. Just ask DW, who completely transformed his health and his life at the age of 69 with a set of diet, exercise and lifestyle changes that increased muscle mass, reduced fat and boosted his metabolic rate by more than 200 points. Here’s how he did it — and proved that wellness knows no age limits.

What is Wellness Medicine? A life lesson.


Life is a story and each story is a lesson to be learned.


I recently wrote a new chapter in my story.  This chapter would have been one I would rather not have written.  Despite living a healthy lifestyle (yes, I practice what I preach), I recently developed severe hypertension.  Long story short, I was diagnosed with a Pheochromocytoma—a rare tumor of the adrenal gland which secretes high levels of catecholamines (epinephrine and norepinephrine).  This zebra of a diagnosis causes out of control elevated blood pressure, elevated blood sugar, anxiety…  The only known treatment and cure, whether natural or traditional, is the surgical removal of the tumor.


This story taught me a very valuable lesson.  A lesson that can be found in the question: what is wellness medicine?

Dr Goodyear speaks at AFMA 2016

Dr. Goodyear was honored to again speak at the American Functional Medicine Association annual meeting in Atlanta, GA.  Dr.img_2523
Goodyear joined an outstanding list of speakers at the 2016 AFMA meeting.  Dr. Goodyear spoke on the topic of ‘Physician Burnout’.


The first literary reference to physician burnout was a novel written in 1960 with the first definition of physician burnout originating in 1975.   Over 40 years of research on physician burnout has focused on defining physician burnout, identifying the components of physician burnout, and obtaining statistics of physician burnout.  Despite 40+ years of research, the trend of physician burnout is headed in the wrong direction.  In 2001, the rate of physician burnout was 22%.  The most recent statistics, from 2016, put the rate of physician burnout in excess of 55%.

Natural therapies and the flu–what does the evidence show?


The influenza virus

My previous post focused on the evidence of the flu vaccine and the prevention of the flu via the flu vaccine.  As the evidence consistently shows, the flu vaccine does not prevent flu transmission and/or prevent complications from the flu.  That is in addition to the historically very low match rates.  This is not my opinion; this is not marketing; this simply is what the evidence shows.  If you haven’t read that post and the evidence, I encourage you to stop and read the previous post on the evidence against the flu vaccine now.


If the the flu vaccine doesn’t prevent the flu, then how can you protect against the flu?  Do we simply run the immune system roulette table every cold/flu season?  How can you treat the flu if you are unfortunate to welcome the influenza virus into your home?  Is all hope lost in our ability to protect ourselves and our loved ones against the cold and flu?


All hope is not lost.  Below, I list natural, evidence-based therapies to prevent the influenza virus invasion and treat the influenza virus if the invasion does occur.  The therapies listed are some of the more evidence-based therapies out there.  These therapies will also work well against the other encountered viruses so prevalent this time of year.

Dr Goodyear speaks at A4M in Las Vegas 2014

UntitledIt was again an honor for Dr Goodyear to speak at the annual A4M Functional & Regenerative Medicine conference in Las Vegas on 12.12.14.   This conference brings together the largest gathering of Functional Medicine practitioners in the World.  New ideas and new research, from around the world, in Health and Health restoration are learned, discussed, and debated.Untitled


Dr Goodyear lectured on “Man Boobs to Metabolic Syndrome”.  This talk built on the foundation of the causes of low Testosterone in men discussed in his first book, “Man Boob Nation“, and presented last year at the same conference.  Dr Goodyear reviewed the causes of low Testosterone in men and reviewed the scientific evidence that points to Low Testosterone as the effect and not the cause.  Does low Testosterone as the effect end there?  Or, does the effect of low Testosterone become a cause of metabolic dysfunction that leads to disease in men?  This is the question that Dr Goodyear proposed and answered via the current available evidence.


“Androgen use and abuse is increasing in our society, either for therapeutic or recreational reasons”.

Vascular Health Risk Management 2008


Is low Testosterone in men simply ED and low libido?  Or, does low Testosterone play a role in metabolic dysfunction in men?  Does metabolic dysfunction, as a result of low Testosterone, have a role in the metabolic implications of disease in men?  Dr Goodyear followed the scientific evidence of low Testosterone in the metabolic implications of Obesity, Muscle loss, Inflammation, Hyperlipidemia, and Insulin Resistance in men.  The metabolic dysfunction timeline, according to the scientific literature, points to low Testosterone as a significant contributor to these metabolic implications of disease, eventually resulting in Metabolic SyndromeMetabolic Syndrome is the doorway to disease.  Low Testosterone plays a role in the metabolic dysfunction that leads to Metabolic Syndrome (doorway to disease) and Low Testosterone plays a significant role in the risk of Diabetes, Cardiovascular disease, and mortality in men beyond that doorway.


Dr Goodyear also discussed the apparent conflicts in the literature on the safety and disease implications of low Testosterone in men.  Dr Goodyear highlighted the flaws in the heavily promoted JAMA and PlosOne articles and reviewed the significant volume of data that supports physiologic Testosterone therapy in men with low Testosterone.


Testosterone therapy in men is more than just ED and libido treatment, Testosterone therapy in men with low Testosterone is a therapeutic treatment and prevention strategy in the metabolic dysfunction underlying the metabolic implications of disease in men.  That is not just Dr Goodyear’s opinion, that is what the scientific evidence supports.
