The goal to age well and stay on top of my health led me to my guest on this episode of The Doctor’s Farmacy, Dr. George Shapiro. Dr. Shapiro has been a practicing physician for 30 years, specializing in internal medicine, cardiovascular disease, and age management medicine. Dr. Shapiro was the recipient of the 10th Annual Alan P. Mintz, MD Award, for Clinical Excellence in Age Management Medicine, as he has become known nationwide as an expert in age management medicine, and leads one of the most prominent age management practices in the country as president of Cenegenics New York City. He has long been known as one of New York’s foremost cardiologists, specializing in regenerative medicine and improving longevity, including the genomics of cardiovascular disease and congestive heart failure.

On today’s episode, Dr. Shapiro and I discuss the world of regenerative medicine and what the science says about healthy aging. One major issue of aging for many people is a decline in the endocrine system, altering hormones and for some leading to a loss of libido and sexual function. An aging endocrine system also greatly impacts metabolism and can create an excess of dangerous, inflammatory belly-fat. Dr. Shapiro shares his experience in helping patients rebalance hormones. We also dive into more of Dr. Shapiro’s work, like using peptides and exosomes as part of an anti-aging protocol and what kinds of testing he uses to get the full picture of physiological age. I also share my personal experience in working together with him to achieve the longevity I’m after.

    Wen you said ” to give vaccines” you lost me.

  2. I love your show and all the great information your sharing with the public to increase our awareness and knowledge. However I can’t help but cringe when people refer to vaccines as being good without clearly researching the science (the science that has been paid for by big pharma and has not been paid for) if they had researched they would know vaccines kill thousands of people a year and damage millions of lives causing autoimmune disorders and hospitalization. I don’t find it responsible to promote a product with zero double blind placebo studies to back up the safety. It would be great if you could have a doctor such as Dr. Toni Bark on to raise awareness about the dangers of vaccination.

    He looks unhealthy and over weight. You have to wonder if he’s practicing what he’s preaching? Don’t ya, if he’s selling optimal health?

    The average person can’t afford this kind of medical treatment unfortunately and insurance companies won’t pay for in-depth Advanced testing most of the time I know from experience!

      Definitely sounds like a service for the privileged $$.
      Medicare doesn’t even want to pay for D3 level testing; suddenly D3 is of no relevance.

  8. Fascinating info. It does not sound cheap. For
    how long would you have to be in New York to be checked? And how much money are we talking about?
