Thanks for signing up!
Welcome to our new longevity blog. My name is Terry Grossman and I’m a medical doctor from Denver where I have a preventive medicine and anti-aging clinic. I’m 62 years of age, so I have a personal as well as a professional interest in anti-aging and longevity.
I have written three books on longevity and lecture frequently about anti-aging to other health professionals as well as lay audiences. I am the medical director of Health Innovations, a research foundation that is currently involved in a study on the use of high dose intravenous vitamin in the treatment of hepatitis C. But my professional life centers around working with patients at my clinic, The Grossman Wellness Center. Working at the clinic is satisfying thanks to the amazing group of people we have working there and also fascinating due to the wide variety of patients who come to see us from all areas of the United States and around the world. Today was not particularly unusual and first time visitors to our clinic included the former Secretary of State of a major Middle Eastern country and a man from the Colorado high country with stage IV (widely metastatic) kidney cancer.
The ex-Secretary of State had some extra time in his schedule since his political party was defeated in his country’s elections a few months ago and he has found himself temporarily between jobs. He came for a comprehensive two-day “longevity evaluation.” He is very health conscious and wanted to learn what he can do to optimize his already sophisticated wellness program.
The patient with kidney cancer wanted to discuss possible alternative therapies for his cancer since the five year survival rate for stage IV kidney cancer is only five percent with conventional treatment. His options were limited as surgery wasn’t possible, he had declined radiation therapy and was unwilling to take any more chemo as it made him too sick.
These two patients are typical of the two broad groups of people we see – healthy individuals looking to assess their current status so they can fine tune their personal wellness programs to achieve an optimal level of health and patients who have developed a chronic disease that is either unresponsive to conventional therapy or for which the side effects of such treatment are unacceptable.
On the personal side, my hobbies include inline roller skating, mountain biking, cross country skiing and snowboarding. In other words, I trynotto act my age when appropriate. But I also try to practice what I preach, so I eat properly, exercise regularly, control stress, and take my supplements. I also enjoy things I truly love and, even though seemingly counterproductive to my quest for longevity, I ride my Harley Davidson motorcycle on occasion, I’ve been skydiving and I scuba dive. I feel that each and every day is a gift that should be cherished, enjoyed and lived to its fullest extent.
With this new longevity blog, I plan to share tips that you can use to optimize your health and maximize your longevity. I look forward to hearing from you as well.
Terry Grossman, M.D.
