I don't You know, I'm just it's just last night we do last night. We do have other things in the pipeline. Oh, yeah, well, but to begin, though, I think that we need to for people who are brand new or people who have not really pulled the trigger yet. I want to make sure that people know what the stakes are. All right. When we're talking about inflammation, all right here. The stakes inflammation is connected to At least 98%. According to all the research, at least 90% 8% of all chronic conditions. You know those long term conditions. Those Conditions that begin with the see those conditions that we need to all be taken care of. We know it inflammation in terms of pain, But there's an awful up more to it. Could you just first give us a quick rundown of what are the stakes? And making sure that inflammation is kept at bay. Bad inflammation. Bat will bad information is is the culprit which causes all of our body to, uh Create and a new attack signal it will inflammation is there were cellular response. It's the emergency services. I like to make the analogy as if our body was a city. And the inflammation system is the police department. It's the ambulance. It's the National Guard, and it's the fire department all in one, and when a cell gets in trouble is literally it dials 911 and the emergency services are activated in her body. And a chronic inflammation signal is essentially that cell does not stop calling for emergency services. So you always.

"I can't move. I don't like to walk. It hurts. I hobble. It's miserable and I can't get even up to the starting gate. Yet, you know, And I think the same is true of people who maybe have super low energy, adrenal fatigue, thyroid deficiency, whatever. And they're having a hard time getting to the starting gate. Even begin the process. Once they feel right again, they can't wait to get out and move and walk and exercise and get active again, Doc. And I think that that is an important part of this story. There are people listening who can't get to the starting gate of all of the things that they'd like to do. Maybe they changed their diet. The pain is still there, and they can't really get started. And it sounds like that's a little bit about what your patient was going through. Um, I kind of overstating it or is that where he wa so that's a good description on day and hopefully in the next couple of weeks after Thanksgiving or whatever. Hey, expressed an interest in incoming on we'll try and get himself. People here are firsthand story. Good. Yeah, you know, long along with that I had another exciting thing. It's been a few weeks ago, but One of my patients. Of course, in my brochure in the clinic I have I have Ah, X ray that shows a patient that's bone on bone. But you know, and and and then they show the same patient. After the benefits of proto therapy, and they're no longer bottle bone, and I have always shared that. It's a great great illustration. It's on my Web site. And and yet I had a patient that in May of 2019 She had an ex ray and her her name was bone on bone. She went through the course of pro therapy with me. And then a few weeks ago, she had a bicycle accident where she toppled over and she kind of hurt in the end her ankle and so she went into the urgent care. And they did an X ray. And and the doctor was reviewing that X ray plus the one from almost a year and a half previously, and he said, I don't get it. He said You were bone on bone over here. But you're no longer bottom bun. What you do. And she said, Well, I saw about the Franken We did this primal therapy and regenerated the cartilage in, you know, he's a good doc. It's just that he wasn't trained to know that you could do that. Well, and he described his head. Well, we have when you live in the world of much needed symptom relief. I'm not slagging on anybody for for providing symptom relief. My gosh, you're in pain. I'd like to be able to. It's still get out of pain. Get out of bed and do what I have to do. So symptom relief has an important place in health. It's just that what About the root cause. What if we were able to deal with the root cause? What if we were able to regenerate tissue and I know that that is really foreign to Ah lot of listeners. Unfortunately for into a lot of practitioners also, and that's why I love the docks that we bring on the show. We're bringing life back to the patient. You listen to super health. That's Dr Brian Frank. I'm Kyle Drew. You mentioned acupuncture at the beginning and real quickly as your as People are thinking about this. I can imagine somebody's in pain and the causes well, they're bone on bone. Acupuncture might provide some symptomatic relief, but really, until the tissue is regenerated. It. We're not. We're not talking about a long term effect is that is that fair? Well, you know, actually, in my acupuncture practice because I had a number of years doing medical acupuncture before I learned problem therapy and and I actually had quite a number of patients that were did very well with their degenerative need conditions. Uh, it wasn't as high of a success rate as we see with pro therapy and it took more visits, and so really, when you look at it, uh, between between the fewer visits, that it takes the form of therapy to regenerate that healthy cartilage. It really ended up being about the same price. And so in my practice, I go to the primal therapy. Is Aziz the definitive treatment for that condition? I love acupuncture. And it's got a lot of benefits, whether it's paying related or whether it's for, you know, anxiety or insomnia. Or as Lord got related issues, there's a lot of benefits to acupuncture. But when you got a bone on bone knee, I'm gonna recommend they go straight away to promote their Let's just do it. Let's just go straight away to it. Why not? I was showing her healthy joints Don't hurt is my favorite phrase of yours and you know, and my experience with acupuncture with a traditional Chinese medicine physician. Was so powerful and mine was got related. And and so it's not just pain. There are so many things. What we need to do is get you in front of Dr Frank go ahead and schedule an appointment. And kind of see what the deal is. We need to take a full assessment, though it's not just okay, it's money and nothing else or I know it's testosterone. I know I don't have any Testarossa, and there's nothing else in the world that it could be, Doc, Just give me a bunch of testosterone. I want those bodybuilding levels. That's not the way Dr Frank works. We have to take a look at the whole person.

And if it isthe Saturday, it is super health. My name is Kyle drew meat eating. Tofu hating nutritionist. Right here on news radio. 1000, Katie. Okay, happy You're joining us every single week. Right here on Katie. Okay on super Health. You know, we always begin the show with Dr Brian Frank. He's a medical doctor, Not a fake doctor. A medical doctor. No, I hear you, Lavon. I'm sorry. Just listen. I've got An allergic reaction to radio shows or podcasts or anything. I don't care if people, you know, have some kind of certificate that they get from. Ah, you know, Venezuela that tells you that you're a doctor. If you send in $100, I don't care. I just I wish you'd just say your name and not have to use the word doctor. That's all I ask. But Dr Brian Frank is a really live medical doctor, an anesthesiologist. Then functional medicine, integrative medicine, pain management, all the rest hormone replacement. He's your guy here in the Oklahoma City Metroplex is actually a pin Edmund at re Genesis Health. I'll give you his contact information by the way. You can. You can say no to this, but ah, our man. Josh should ultras in the studio and he tore some cartilage in his rib cage. Is, is that the kind of thing that prologue therapy would be useful for is or is it more joint type stuff? Not so much rip gauge stuff. Well, you know those where those ribs come around and connect to the breastbone sternum? Yep. Or down on either side Lower where they come along your upper abdomen. Those are joints. You know, they were on s. So I've had a lot of people through the years. You know if you do integrated Pain management, Natural pain management for 30 40 years then you see a lot of things that would be that would be very appropriate. And I've had AH lot of folks with success in that regard before you treat him. I need to have one wrestling match with him in which I have a chance of winning so all well Yeah, I'll wrestle him real quick while he's injured, and then you know, get at least one win beside my name. Pro therapy is theory. Jinnah ll stem cell therapy. I know that you do that. P r P Ah, and all the rest in your clinic at re Genesis Health and Edmund. You sent me an interesting picture this week on it showed Ah, like an X ray of a knee joint. I think that was bone on bone bone on bone. Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! And then that was done in 2019. And then there was Ah 2020 X ray and their soft, beautiful, pliable. Cartlidge. You've got the nice, beautiful no more pain, and but it was because of pro. Oh, therapy and that's what we're looking for, is how to regenerate tissue. If the if that's the reason for your pain, there might be other reasons. But if the if the cartilage has gone away, or there's any soft tissue damage, we need to build that stuff back up again and no better way than the original stem cell therapy. Cheap, effective. And Ah, readily available right here in the Oklahoma City Metro Doc, Why don't you tell us about that? Yeah, That was a fun case, because you know, I have pictures like these on my information brochures and I get them either from articles that have been published in the medical literature or from the textbooks. But this this was one of my very own patients and the the picture I sent you. The league X ray on the left was the one that was bone on bone that was from May of 2019. And that patient went through a series of brutal therapy with me and the only reason she was having this X ray in October, so that's 17 months later of 2020 was because she had an accident a fall. And in that fall, she she bruised her knee and hurt her ankle. So at the urgent center or or wherever she went, they did a Annette Raber Renee and her ankle and and so A. She relates to me. The doctor's holding up. You know the previous X ray and then the current X ray and there's no fracture. That's good news for her after this fall, But he says now I don't get it because, he said. A year and a half ago. You're a bona bona. Now you look just fine. What's going on? How did you do that again? Tell him that she went to this guy that did preload therapy and a horse, he says. Well, what's that? Because, you know, he's not a bad doctor. He's just been trained. To either put people on pharmaceuticals or send him to surgery. They the the medical schools in the residency programs. They really There's such a bias against. Natural, regenerative healing, and so they just don't know and sure, And in fact, he tells my patient, he says. When, when she explains that she had probably therapy. It's original stem cell therapy and and and then he tells her, he says, Well, I didn't know you could regenerate cartilage. And so that I would do it every week. Right? Right. Right. It's not. It's not uncommon. If you take the little tripper upto Edmund to re Genesis itself. It just kind of Ah, every day, every week, sort of thing with the picture that you sent and everybody can picture this. It looks like an X ray of some bones and instead of there being a nice little bed of cartilage between the knee joint There's nothing on on one side of the picture. And then on the other side, the pictures the brand new cartilage, thanks to pro therapy that you administered about, I don't know if you remember about how many treatments that patient received. In order to finally get to the point of regrowing the cartilage. Um yeah, I'd have to pull that chart. But probably I could just say through again through 30 years of experience with problem regenerative therapy, most patients Safer knee problems or low back problems. Maybe it's neck idea, a rotator cuff in the shoulder problem. But for most of these were looking at an average of 4 to 6 treatments. Some people completely done and to care for, and others need five or six but pretty consistent range that's easy. And do they come every week or every every few weeks? How often do they come for those? Well, I typically seen most of my patients on a two week interval Now, years ago when I was originally trained in this. We treated people every week. But what we have found through the last 30 years is number one that that's not Generally necessary, although I do that when we have highly competitive athletes, whether their high school or college or beyond, because you know that's If you're looking for a scholarship, or you're looking, you know for your profession than that's important to be a bit more aggressive and then, on the other hand, I have some patients that say. You know I could do this, but it would really help me if I come in maybe three or four weeks instead of two. You don't lose any ground. It just takes longer toe, you know, get the cumulative effect, But so most people come in to weekend. I just want to stay all day and you Khun doomy once per hour and get it done in a day..

"It was also in 2015. And and so they did this study and they had 24 patients that that they followed for six months after and you know they're looking at range emotion. They're looking at pain as measured on what's called the visual. Analog scale they're looking at Um The ability to get back to activities of daily living and so forth. And and in each of those areas, they found significant improvement that was validated by. You know, the Fancy hotshot research tools that they use. So that was a great article to confirm again. You know what I've been doing for 30 years with classic pro therapy is You know, I even share with my patient to say. You know if you got degenerative The arthritis. Don't replace the joint. Regenerate The joint s O. Many people don't know that. That's an option. And I understand why they wouldn't. They're not hearing it when they go to their garden variety, doctor. They're they're not hearing it most of the time with their orthopedic surgeon. Nothing wrong with that. It's just that to get the other side of the story, you're gonna have to go to the other side of the track. You have to go to a doctor who's been in conventional medicine and still has the power of the prescription pad but also has alternative techniques that are proving themselves to be safe and really affected. By the way. Don't listen to this, Doc. Don't listen, because I'm about to talk about you. Can you believe this guy, folks? You and I are reading People magazine. He's reading, clinical, orthopedics and related research. In his spare time. Who is this guy? Okay, You can listen again dot know it always cracks me up. When when you science types are talking about light reading that you've done and I came across this article in this obscure journal, but the fact of the matter is, Doc. If there is a way to regenerate tissue, go row it back again, and it's safe, effective and oh, by the way, affordable. Boy. Oh, boy. I don't see why everybody doesn't do this first. Now, obviously they need to come in and see you. They need to find out OK, You're just dealing with some stiffness right now. Maybe some Some ultra cur would do the trick. Maybe a few other things that you're doing in the office would do the trick. Or are we at the point where we actually need to grow back tissue? That's no longer there. Either way, it's time to make an appointment with Dr Brian Frank. He's up in Edmond and he's at re Genesis. Health. I like that name like regeneration. Ah, NIU Again. Re Genesis Health.

"Every single week. Right here on Katie. Okay, You know, we start with Dr Brian Frank every single week. You know, when we first started this show we didn't have the doc around, right, you know, And so we're just kind of wheel in our way through. But now we've got a prescriber someone who is a medical doctor. He has been in conventional medicine. He has been in the pain medicine world now is in the functional medicine, anti aging space pain. Everything that you might need, And he's got the power of the prescription pad. Also, the power of the supplement packages. It's all right here and so much more, Dr. Frank, how you doing? Hey, I'm doing great. Thanks. It's good to have you. We've had some questions over the last couple of weeks coming in and somebody wrote in and they said ah that they have diabetes, Type two diabetes. And you know with that comes something called neuropathy, sometimes diabetic neuropathy, and I'll let you kind of weave the discussion on what that actually is, But they were saying, You know what? I'm I'm not getting over it. I want to make sure the circulation is there. I don't want to lose my feet. That's where it seems to be manifesting the feet and maybe the tips of the fingers. And so does Dr Frank have any perspective on this? So, Doc? What Say you about diabetic neuropathy? First of all, what? For people who don't know what is this? There might be people suffering with this and don't even know what it's called. Yeah, that's that's a good and a very important question. So neuropathy is a pathology a disease If you will. This ease of the nerves, and specifically, this mostly happens to the The small nerves in the periphery, so the hands and the feet are very common. Diabetic neuropathy is very common because in diabetes, which is that it's hardened and inflammatory and autoimmune process. You have a compromise to the circulation of those nerves. And so sometimes people feel numbness. Sometimes I feel tangling. Sometimes they feel pain by various descriptions. But it's certainly not pleasant and it's It's an indication that things are not well, Um, now in conventional medicine, the diabetics we're going to get treated with Orel and then subsequently, you know, injectable. Ah ah, diabetic medications, and that's managing the symptoms. But in regenerative medicine, we say, Well, might there be a way, especially in a type two. Diabetic might be a way to actually resolved the issue, and you never see that in conventional listen, but I will admit that it's not easy. But if we can make adjustments and diet lifestyle and with some key Nutrients than actually many diabetics can resolve their diabetes and along with it, their neuropathy so specifically in the last year I have to. Products that I've been offering my diabetic patients there botanical different formulations. But one is helping some patients very well, the others helping some other patients very well and actually helping to normalize their blood sugars, two levels they haven't seen in years. So that's one thing is that in regenerative medicine, we would actually council with the patient on how to not just manage their diabetes but possibly overcome it on DH then and then with that in a rapidly however, in the meantime, we can address the neurotically also. Through a couple of things, and one of the key things is whether it's diabetic or even non diabetic neuropathy getting an increase in the nitric oxide in Oh, is it is oftentimes a very helpful thing, because logic oxide is something that we normally Produce when we're young, and we simply produced lessons we get over and and when we do that, the most common nutrient that people know of his LR Ginny Mae, no acid. But really the combination of the large, inane and L Citra Lane and then some various vitamins and minerals that are good for vascular health. I've gone through about four or five different products in my clinic over the last five years, and I really am happy with where we are now. And so we've got a natural product that helps to release metric oxide and in turn dilates the peripheral vessels, those tiny what we call resistance vessels. I've got patients with your apathy doing so much better of that patients with blood pressure issues either being to able to avoid their you know a prescription blood pressure medicine or being able to decrease if they're on two or three being able to decrease blood pressure medication by getting onto natural substances. That release the nitric oxide die like that tiny vessels, and that takes the resistance off the heart is it's pumping and so your blood pressure can go down. Yeah, Yeah, there's a I was just going to say there's a There's an internal medicine Doc on the South side that I know and he gives L arginine toe all of his heart patients, But he doesn't know about the Elsa Trilling yet. He's you know, but yeah, Normal conventional, doc, but ah, really enthusiastic about the Argentine, but the Sitra lane that combination producing the nitric Ah, oxide in the body, fascinating How that works for heart. It seems to work in the neuropathy patients seems to work for men with e D. Fascinating all the different applications mild to moderate kidney function impairment way see their B U N and creatinine ratios. There, Jafar when we see those numbers mildly moderately impaired and when, when we see the dilation of those tiny vessels in the kidneys, oftentimes that improved S so you're right. Heart blood pressure, kidney function course It's it's kind of popular among the gym rats Because we are letting their vessels they're able to pump harder on their machines. Yeah, but either you're exactly right, E. You had a collar O r an email question about that, right right now we need to consider well, lets the theropod visas. Well, that's exactly right. I don't mean interrupted. Let's set this up. By the way you listen to super health. That's Dr Brian. Frank. I'm Kyle Drew. So, Derek, you're diabetic neuropathy. Give Dr Brian Frank a call. I'll make sure and give you the number at the end of the segment. But Donny wrote in and was asking about e D, but said that I've got normal testosterone levels. And that's all they tested normal total testosterone. It looks like normal blood tests. And yet I still have erectile dysfunction and so wanted to get your perspective on that, Dr Frank Yeah, well, you know, the good news is is that he's got normal testosterone levels. But the bad news in a sense is that there's a lot we don't know what's his estrogen level. What's his D h e a level There is a drain a levels of cortisol throughout the 24 hour period. What's his thyroid? You know these all work together, so in An anti aging and regenerative medicine..

"And they're speaking specifically about the knee joint, and they're talking about with that arthritis and what you have is you have a wearing Terry have a Ah, wearing away of the amount of cartilage in the joy and so ultimately, even though Bombo and they're talking about how to regenerate that now they do point out some things that are true. And that is that. Joints down unnecessarily regenerate. Cartilage doesn't necessarily regenerate very readily. Part of that is because The you know. The cartilage must like ligaments and tendons. If you compare those tissues, toe muscle and skin and internal organs, stuff like that. It has very poor blood flow right. That is part of what makes it difficult for those structures to heal and repair and regenerate. After wearing terror after an injury, But in this article, they basically say, you know that there is nothing to do until they're great Discovery. Which is simply not true. In fact, it's not just 40 Classic Rollo therapy has been around for 85 years Classic Parolo therapy, which you do in your office. It's the original stem cell therapy. It's the original stem cell therapy and what we're doing is safe or worn out. They we are filling the nay, not with corticosteroids like Ah, a lot of family doctor's an orthopedist, not with rooster comb or orthe abyss and send this not these products that just treat the symptoms. All of those therapies. They you know, for some people they actually helped for a time, But it's treating the symptoms is not treating the problem. And so what we want to do and functional, integrative regenerative medicine is we want to try and restore and regenerate healthy joint and most of the time we can. And so we do that with plastic Pirlo therapy where the solution that we put into the joint stimulates the patient's own. Stem cells and growth factors to flood in a student. So you know, I know a lot of people hear about it. But what is the extension of the simply a very immature self? In this case, it's a very immature inflammatory, so So that cell comes in and is it babe is in the wrists upon the cartilage has been worn thin, then literally. It's pretty cool. Literally. Those stem cells become new, healthy cartilage. Wow, it so that's that's The sane, affordable way to do it in the office at Dr Brian Frank's place now contrast it with what the the Stanford study showed. How were they wanting to re grow tissue? Yeah. So what they were doing in the Stanford study, and it does work. I agree with him. It does work, but, you know, being an anesthesiologist. What I always tell patients is that it's a It's a fun place to work, and it really is. But don't go there unless you need to. Because, you know, not everybody has surgery does well and currently the Incidents of mercy of the bad staff. That's resistant is really into high in the outpatient surgery, setting as it is in the inpatient setting now, so You know if you can do things conservatively than most of us are better ahead that way, But this process, what they do is they call it micro fracture. But what they're doing is literally the doing our cross to bear. So they put a scope inside the May that's very common, and then they're literally drilling holes into that cartilage that is worn out in creating this microfracture process in that wound. Stimulates themselves and growth factors to come in and healing repair. Well, guess what? That's what we do in classic pro therapy because we are wait a minute. Wait a minute. That is not what you do in classic Rollo therapy. I'm sorry, perfectly. We're doing it through a solution, but wait a minute. Really? Carefully. You're saying that the Stanford solution is to frack? Sure. That the tissue caused damage and then well, these healing factors come and they start regrowing the tissue. Is that essentially what we're talking about? Yes, that's what were talking So you damage it. You injure it exactly. But, you know, I mean, it leads us to the whole discussion about how we improperly treat injury and sports medicine and accidents in America..

"Tofu hating nutritionists here on news radio 1000, Katie. Okay, happy you're joining us. Thank you for being here. You know, Mike. Oh, you should have been playing football this week. And of course everything's changed. So I'm glad you're joining us on Super health today. And I'm glad that we're joined each week by Dr Brian Frank. Dr. Brian Frank is a board certified physician. A medical doctor was an anesthesiologist. Pain specialists did all things in the operating rooms and then decided. You know what? I'm going to expand the horizons a bit. I'm going to do functional medicine on top of that. So that means he's got the power of the prescription bad but also has the power of all things natural. Do you know that there is some natch Several things that you could do in Dr Brian Frank's office to regrow your joints. Joints that have been damaged joints that have just worn down and it's causing you pain and might even be bone on bone. It's really, really interesting and it's affordable. We'll talk to Dr Brian Frank about that. How you doing, Doc? Hey, Perfect. Thanks for having me. You sent me in the interesting article. Ah, and it it comes out of Stanford, and it's talking about Hey, you know why not regrow joint tissue? And you're like, Yeah, that's a good idea. Welcome aboard. We've only been doing that in functional medicine for 40 years. But, yeah, that's a great idea. But as you read the article, Doc It really is kind of like a medieval way of of regrowing the tissue. What do you have to say about it? Tell our listeners what the article says. Essentially Yeah, it's really nothing. It just came out on August 17th that was published in Laker Medicine Journal on and it's a group of docks from Stanford. So it's you know. Ah, great.

He's up in Edmond at re Genesis Health, Dr. Brian Frank, how do you do? Hey, Super. Thanks for having me. Ah, good questions that we get each week from folks and somebody was asking about acupuncture versus prole. Oh, therapy, But I kind of added in laser and various other things also, but they were saying, you know, I've done acupuncture in the past, and I actually had some pretty good results. They lived in California, I guess and now lives here. Faces but with polo therapy, I'm not sure how to define which scenarios are ideal for prole. Oh therapy, which is the original stem cell therapy versus acupuncture, he says. I've got sort of muscle fatigue and pain. And acupuncture has worked for that. But is pro therapy for that, too? He was just wanting to Cem comparing and contrasting of the two. What do you say to that? That's a super question. And, you know, one of the neat things is that here it re Genesis Health. Um we really got a multitude of integrative natural therapies to heal and repair so These two pro therapy in acupuncture or two of them, But like you mentioned we've got laser. We've got micro current. We've got pulse wave. We've got cupping and you know, we got a lot of different therapies to help people with pain issues and And that comes from 40. Years of not only practicing, but Peking. And being in later ship of some of these integrative therapy is all over the world. So With pro therapy, which we know is the original stem cell therapy at a fraction of the cost. What what pro therapy is primarily used for is Joint either in the joint. We call that intra articular or around the joint, Perry articular. And but what we mean by that is that if your knees are worn out Even bone or bound and pro therapy is a great way to go and 80 to 90% of people literally regenerate healthy cartilage in there, Lee and they don't have that bone on bone. They don't have that any pain any more on DH, So the vast majority of people do great with that Azaz a conservative therapy, but it It's not just treating symptoms is actually regenerating, healthy joint structure. Then when we talk around the joints were primarily talking back problems because obviously the whole spine is a lot of joints so it could be low back rubs could be neck. It could be a shoulder, rotator cuff and other things tennis elbow. Um you know, ankles, hips, whatever all those typically involved around the joints, the tendons and ligaments that surround those joints. And so when we treat Those areas. Then the stem cells that migrate into the tissues become new, healthy fiber blast. You're literally regenerating increase in mass and strength of those tendons and ligaments and The reason we do that is because if you've got a weak rotator cuff in, let's rebuild it. Let's not just, you know, put a suitor in it. Let's literally rebuild it with your own stem cells, And then if you got back problems or or, you know, tennis elbow personally, let's let's get the load. Supported back where it's supposed to be. And then you know, pressure comes off of disks and and off of nerves. And so the reason we see back pain and neck pain and so forth, go away through a Siri's of Perla therapy is because we're literally regenerating healthy support to put it back where it was intended. So all of those air Great great indications for pro therapy. Now that being said, I've treated many people with tennis elbow or with plantar fasciitis or whatever with acupuncture as well or with laser acupuncture. And so many of those will respond quite favorably, even lot of shoulder problems, so a lot of pain problems do well of acupuncture, some other things chronic Sinus and hay fever as well. Got related problems. Those things respond toe acupuncture as well, Really, but I always think about pain, and it looks like our listener did, too, when it comes to acupuncture, But obviously there's so many other things I say, obviously might not be obvious to anybody. But you dock that there are so many other things besides pain for acupuncture. So you were saying Ah gut. What? What are some other ones? I'm sorry I interrupted you. What? Your chronic? Ah! Chronic Sinus and hay fever. Symptoms really got related issues now interesting rolling through those things like that now. Most American, especially American doctors do acupuncture. You use it for pain, right? My training and practice over the last 40 years I was trained and I've been real happy to see some great results and all these other areas as well. So acupuncture does have a broader scope. And then a lot of Especially the positions will understand. But now that being said, um, you can have, for instance, you can have muscle problems that typically respond very well to acupuncture. But If you have instability in the spine, then that's where we need to think about pro therapy because that instability is shifting the load of support. On to the muscles and fashion. And so it really takes a good history and physical exam to help make that determination. You listen to Super elf. That's Dr Brian Frank. I'm Kyle Drew. The thing that I'm wondering about is with with laser. Sometimes you'll say. Like a laser acupuncture. And sometimes you'll just say laser. Are you referring to one and the same? Is it one and the same thing Or they're two different, totally different things. Well, yeah, The equipment is the same. It's you know the laser and it is the same. It's the application and so from a AnAnd atomic medical model kind of a physical therapy model where you might use laser equipment that's typically done in a very anatomical fashion because I am an anesthesiologist. I do that a lot, but also because I'm a medical acupuncture. Then at the same time, I can not only address an issue with a laser through, you know, um, physical medicine. Anatomical medicine. But I can also approach it through the theories, which are very well gravity of acupuncture and drive. Some of the energetic that took put people into these paying problems. Uh, you know, one of the things I sorry. I don't know why this word cracks me up. But you said it a little earlier and somebody literally wrote in last week and asked about I think they were on your website. At re genesis health dot com Ari Dash genesis health.

"Hurt your listener super health that's Dr Brian Frank I'm Kyle drew so when somebody is used to taking these steroid shots and maybe the pain does go away and sometimes that is the only thing that you have on your mind okay that and I get it I've been in pain and sometimes I'd swallow a snake if it meant getting rid of the pain right now but then when it turns into a long term prospect one of the things that Doug Kaufman has said for a long time is that some of these anti inflammatory steroids and actually can promote fungal overgrowth in the body which can create a number of side effect issues and I know you know all about that doctor Frank so when some but he is saying okay I've been doing steroid injections I want to give this a go with Dr Frank does it matter if they've recently had a steroid shot or if they're at the end of the effectiveness of the previous steroid shot doesn't matter what time they come in to see you is there an ideal time or just call right now and make an appointment yeah well I'd say just call because you know I I schedule all my patients personally and so when I have a new patient call then then I'm gonna talk to him on the phone well before we make that appointment so they'll know what to expect but if if they have had a recent cortisone shot we usually wait at least a couple weeks to four weeks but you know really and truly most people they've they've white at that time all already and so normally we can get on the right hand within within about a week certainly and one of the big differences is first of all let me start over when it comes to prolotherapy we only have two minutes left in the segment Dr Frank but when it comes to prolotherapy do they take the therapy once per week for a number of weeks or once every other week until until you feel like you've you've achieved what you need to achieve how often do people do the actual in half in clinic therapy yes great question some people are completely done and and well and two or three treatments what we know statistically over many thousands of patients is that really whether it's a male shoulder back and elbow whatever statistically by the time we do for treatments and then typically those are at two week intervals but we can we can little by little bit one way or the other we need to do but roughly two week intervals by the time we do the for treatment we're in an eighty to eighty five percent success rate and and like I say they may be done and her three treatments I would love birds five or six but it's a short series and and you know it's it's not Walmart it's not a hundred percent but boy we see eighty to ninety percent success rate and you don't see that anywhere else in medicine typically well and what success means when prolotherapy works is that tissue is actually being regenerated being rebuilt and up because of the pain itself is going away you're actually regrowing tissue that the steroids are just turning the pain receptors off they're just not able to perceive the pain but the tissue was still damaged or degenerated with prolotherapy success means not only does the pain go away but the cause of the pain has been mitigated against let me give you doctor Brian Frank's phone number those of you who have been in pain those of you who need hormone replacement but don't want steroid side effects and there's a lot of those out there trust me here's the phone number four zero five seven six three seven six zero three it's four oh five seven six three seven six zero three make an appointment and let's get you in this week go to his website regenesis health dot com that's R.

"Always start with our good buddy Dr Brian Frank Dr Frank is a medical doctor was an anesthesiologist pain everything in that world the spend a lot of time in the surgery suites but then decided you know what there's other parts to this whole health game and let's talk about integrative let's talk about acupuncture let's talk about prolotherapy and he's right up in admin at regenesis health I'll give you his contact information at the end of the segment Dr Frank how do you do okay perfect good super is the right answer but that's fine that's fine good and perfect your fun Hey Hey you were asking if we got any emails or texts this week and we did and it is from a woman in del city who is post menopausal okay so post menopausal that's the contacts but dog gone it she has not figured out how to get the hormones balanced now she's been going to a conventional doctor and when she goes there doing blood tests to assess the estrogens progesterone testosterone everything else even cortisol and so it was interesting because she said you know I've I've heard doctor Frank on the show and I'm just a little bit confused about saliva for versus blood because my doc it does exclusively blood testing no saliva testing and he says no I don't really know about that I'm here while they're here just damn your arm and let's let's just plunge in the land and so what it what are your thoughts for her first of all when it comes to testing how do you do that when it comes to all things hormone both male and female yeah this is a great discussion car because men and women really need to assess what their status is and that can be for women premenopausal as well as post menopausal man that can be pre and RuPaul's or post and pause the male menopause because we live in a pretty toxic soup that we've created for ourselves we've got you know eighty thousand chemicals that didn't even exist fifty years ago that are put on our crops and in our ultimately end up in our water sources and stuff and and many of these are what we call hormone D. regulators or dis regulators and so we've got a lot of dysregulation poor regulation of hormones even in younger people when we test I certainly understand her confusion you know the conventional doctors do typically tests through blood tests you know simply because that's what they were taught but you know this doctor apparently showed that he had research that or anything and I didn't know all this until I get a four year fellowship an anti aging and regenerative medicine either L. and so fortunately while that specialty anti aging and regenerative medicine is one of the fastest growing in America we're certainly smaller numbers than conventional doctors and you know there's just only so many people that are able and willing to spend four years in a fellowship while they also have an active practice yeah it was one of the greatest seasons of my life to go through and and do that but the reason that we typically an anti aging medicine Wilder saliva is that these hormones sex hormones especially have a have their effect on the cell membrane receptor sites and the way got Vegas is is when we give saliva that tells us what's going on at the cell membrane and and so when we do a blood test then it is basically just telling you how much of those hormones are floating around in your bloodstream not not that are actually at the cellular level but just in the bloodstream level exactly yeah which is a difference a difference that you know a lot of people don't know or and don't appreciate that's okay if you don't know it but the difference is an important distinction right well it is and and you know for instance all have men come in and they'll tell me what their testosterone level is and and usually that's by blood because that's what their family doctor did and and then when we do the saliva test it's it's a completely different number and so you don't need to you know it's apples and oranges at best and we want to know what's going on at that cell membrane receptor site so typically what we'll do when I see a patient for the first time in for once a year I will do for what are commonly called sex hormones estrogen and progesterone which control a woman's fertility and cycles but mainly those two we just need different levels on that are are women then we checked testosterone and DHEA DHEA is the fountain of youth everything about feeling youthful and vigorous in vital but guess what I I have a patient this last week that was concerned about having some lower not really he developed some lower sexual vitality and energy an analog video and his testosterone was great but is do you I was in the basement wow and and so that's what we needed to address so we typically look at those hormones in the saliva and then and then the first time will do their adrenal cortisol also not adrenal gland is our primary stress William and that the court is all you know whenever you do a blood test you're only going to see what a morning or you know at work or try to clock at ten o'clock whenever they have the blood draw you only get a spot of what the court is all doing but when we do the saliva we do morning noon evening and night saliva collections and we assess what that shouldn't what the court is always doing throughout the twenty four hours and and it's been very well established what a normal healthy cortisol curfews and so they were able to assess okay are you above the curve that would be what we call adrenal stress for you below the curve we call that adrenal fatigue and that many people actually have a mixed pattern that I had a woman this past week that she woke up and hurry significant adrenal stress but the only thing I learnt she was entering a particular she was presenting it with a mixed pattern yeah and I remember when you tested my wife and we've talked about this a lot on the radio you know cortisol is supposed to be higher in the mornings and dip lower in the evenings it helps the waking up cycle in the in the sleep cycle and she was just the opposite right it was it was really a really low in the mornings and she wishes dragon around and then really high in the evenings and then she's a night owl and that was a perfect example of what you're talking about I think right and that can only be determined as you're looking at cortisol levels throughout the day right yeah and that's that's why no I don't do those tests every quarter like a lot of doctors do I do the first time I see a patient and then usually once a year or maybe maybe will come in at about eight months but I do that for two reasons one is to say the patient money but the other is the pragmatics that it were not treating the adrenal gland which drugs you know we're not sure prescriptions were not using hydrocortisone we're using natural botanical and glandular products that help the adrenal gland healthy and and that's a slower process but it's a better way to do it balances things out over time and and really gets down to the root causes of things your listeners super health that's Dr Brian Frank I'm Kyle drew are there any things like with regard to thyroid is thyroid still blood test with you or is that also saliva yup always well recognized we can get that through the blood testing okay so we can handle it but what we do recommend when we're doing our initial evaluation it is so important to look at the hormones the quarter the adrenal and thyroid together because they are so intricately interwoven that basically the chairman of our fellowship said if you're not gonna do all of that together just don't even be dealing in this area of healthcare do you know that's pretty important real quickly with only about three minutes left in the segment she was talking about still experiencing a lot of hot flashes it went when you're dealing with hot flashes it is it's always pretty much one thing I mean is it just an imbalance of projects thrown in estrogen or sometimes does it go beyond that I'm just I'm just what I'm just speaking to the complexity of it all it's a good question and and will tag along with that I have some women that are very well beyond being menopausal and they say well I don't have hot flashes so why do I need to concern myself with hormones yeah and the reason that we look at patients if they have symptoms or if they don't is because for instance in women estrogen is important and critical to maintain a healthy brain and a healthy heart it's an important cold factor for Manitoba's lower level with their testosterone for healthy brain and a healthy heart projects around is essential and women you can't just take calcium in the three and maintain healthy bones and and not be at risk for osteoporosis you need that jester on affect another thing is that many many women have an imbalance to where they are what we call estrogen dominance and that precludes them to be at higher risk for maybe but nine maybe not the nine breast lesions in ovarian lesions then women make testosterone to both for libido and sexual vitality but also testosterone is really important for us to heal and repair that can be trauma or that can be the microphone that goes on in our body every day so sometimes people don't heal and repair because their testosterone deficient and then we already mentioned DHEA is the felt alive so that's why we look at those and specifically to your question about the the hot flashes we can't look at just USD general just register we need to look at the look at a combination but right we look at not only their individual values but the ratio and then like I say we also look at DHEA batch that's so critical and the good news is once we harmonize and and get a balanced other hormones whether premenopausal or postmenopausal then most of those symptoms go away and for the ones that still struggle a bit we've got typically really good but technical products that that work to help that as well well that's what that's it I'm sorry to interrupt we're about to close in on the end of the segment but I was the it was going to say you mentioned earlier in the segment that you know a guy comes in is testosterone's perfect any as a veto is is in the tank while it it means that there are a lot of different things in play it's never just one thing and we need to take a look at a variety of different things take a look at the hormone mail user in combination as well as other things that may be going on let me give you doctor Frank's phone number make an appointment this week it's area code four zero five seven six three seven six zero three it's four.

"I have Dr Brian Frank with me and I talked about Dr Frank about pain all the time because he's my go to person when someone is this has chronic pain as had operations didn't work or doesn't want to have an operation I always say go see doctor Frank first and he's has all these different ways to approach now but he's also not only in the M. D. and the specialists in pain but he has a a doctor our fellowship in. integrated functional medicine and that is where they apply a lot of the natural things that I'm into along with the medical world and take it to a new level so I know when you go to the seminar starter Frank you may have someone that's an expert on heart disease and they'll have their own protocol natural protocols probably similar to what I tell people take when I give lectures but tell me if I came to you and I had congestive heart failure and I'm gonna and the second example would be let's say someone had a heart attack and then we'll have a second a second one you just aren't very been a weakness the heart is a different approach than a heart attack to a degree but they have a lot of overlap so how would you approach that from a natural approach from integrative medicine approach. well. a great topic in fact I personally had to go through about three years ago went through us bout of atrial fibrillation myself and I was just fortunate that I in my fellowship module on integrated cardiology that was with doctor mark here stand and and then you mentioned doctor Stevens laughter both of those are two of the top integrative cardiologists in the nation and when we say integrative that the main just alternative that means that conventional care plus the alternative we bring those together and nutrients play such an important part of ourselves so I would always encourage people with either heart attack a sliver congestive failure yes to your cardiologists yes I understand sometimes are going to be either not interested are a bit negative all nutrients and stuff in there and that's okay they just in the study that but what I would generally recommend and of course we would always consult with a patient and make specific recommendations when we say there are particular issues but I want to bring up. or things that I would absolutely consider one would be many people are deficient in magnesium and so what I would look at a at a magnesium alloy he like Formula probably in generally speaking about five hundred milligrams twice a day I would encourage people to take Epson salts backs periodically a couple of cups of Epsom salts into about them you know usually this time the reader relaxer you know just have some personal quiet time but it's a great great way to absorb magnesium and magnesium is a real big player and helping to die like the blood vessels are relaxed them so that you're you're taken or less resistance meaning you're taken resistance away from the heart George also good for blood pressure so magnesium is an important one for most people computer here and is it is an important one I personally agree with most of the research indicates the back when all forms so that's what what I recommend and you know it depends on what medicines and supper on but some people only need a couple of hundred milligrams others need four hundred but you know again we we decide that on the order of the individual basis of the Kerr Cuban can be really important for its anti inflammatory effect you know even blood pressure and diabetes and the functional medicine world is now understood to be at its heart and inflammatory conditions so when you have blood pressure or heart problems there is an inflammatory issue and so you know my favorite personal is the altar curb the ultra bio available curcumin it is really fits that very well and then the last one I want to mention is do you ride the ride yeah. D. ribose powder typically comes as a powder with a scoop in it usually you get five grams in a serving and and detect five grams of D. rivals powder either two or three times a day I tell you what when when I went to my fellowship it was remarkable for people that have cardio heart attacks and thirty yeah I think he just hard very were the hearts getting weak in the park it right up yeah the recovery in the rich and this is legitimate published research the recovery of people that took the D. rivals quite honestly it didn't just surprised the researchers at astonished them and so it's it's fairly inexpensive it's easy to get it you know the the local health stores in Sudan's rocky stopper off Amazon whatever but the rivals powder is a really important one also with it it provides nourishment to the body country in the cardiac muscle and and so you see you see more effective contractility and and that's that's a real big player yeah in fact one Thomas lecture heart disease and I was explaining to him and I said that it tastes just as good as sugar to is very sweet but it won't raise your blood sugar and doctor that was in the audience who can I put it my coffee and said what yeah outs looks meant to do it that way no not at all I'll do it and I went okay yeah it's a good idea but in your coffee. the I don't recall the bed that you know it's a good idea. yeah we could run down a little rabbit trail just for a moment with this this brings up a point that in general Americans get too much sugar we're talking brochure or high fructose corn syrup things like that but there are several actually help the sugars D. ribose is known for its benefits to heart health D. mannose is known for helping women that have recurrent urinary tract infections and and then was silent tall I read a study done by fellowship that showed that if if you've got kids that have middle ear infections repeatedly and you have them Peter true silent all done or chew bench was silent call each day it reduced the number of middle ear infections by a whopping seventeen seventy six percent something like that that's what I'm that kid I to a lot of such drugs and I like to me it's too and it it makes things so slick fall it would probably work on the bladder to it makes is so slick bacteria falls all now doc how do people get a hold of you..

"Drew me to eating tofu hating nutrition who meets that's going to be an acronym we're gonna use in just a minute mate meeting to avoid interruptions happen you're joining us every single week right here on super healthy happy happy happy Hey listen a lot of you right in I don't know how you do it I don't know how you figure out how to write in but you're right in you somehow have my email address and there's there's a couple of things that have come up over the past week and I want to get doctor Brian Frank's perspective on it Dr Brian Frank is a medical doctor get me medical doctor means he has the power of the prescription pad but he's one of us he likes the integrative approach the best of conventional medicine the baddest of natural medicine combines them all together at a place that he calls read genesis health it's up in admin you'll need to make an appointment I'll tell you how it the end of the segment Dr Brian Frank how you doing brother Hey we're glad to be with you glad that you're with us again I my wife and I were doing what is essentially sort of spring cleaning but we're doing it shin on Labor Day weekend and the boy this is gonna be of much longer project then we first anticipated boil boy and we were up in the attic and it just it was it was a mess I'm Tony by the end of the day we were being eight just beat and I my wife I think tweak something their shoulder backer and and and she said of boy I could use an ice pack right now what is it no no no no lights forget the ice Dr Frank and I you didn't hear the show it was with doctor Frank and he said no more ice could you talk a little bit about the old style of dealing with this just a quick you know must. pull or whatever where the the acronym was rice and tell us what rice meant and then tell us what your new perspective is for twenty nineteen. well yeah it's a fun topic because there is some of. your confusion there. you know you can look at just common knowledge for moms and dads raising kids in sports store high school college Olympic professional sports and rice are I see he stands for rest ice compression and elevation and those are the the types of things that are quote unquote common knowledge to do for an acute injury however it's interesting that while all of those address the immediate symptoms all of those delay open with yelling and so that's why the one I'm teaching prolotherapy around the world we say we don't use rice we use me I mean I. and then you had alluded to that earlier so maybe stands for movement and exercise so we we like movement we keep it within reason we don't go over board but but movement in exercise is important then the egg stands for analgesic teams are rather than grabbing for the anti inflammatory pain medicine like add bill only by the program turn all those really better FOR calling our extra strength Tylenol for for the pain and then and then you're something topical like been gay or mental later Vicks vapor rub something like that those menthol camper right creams and and really can be quite effective for an acute injury plus they're going to warm the tissue by you know you're gonna have increased blood flow so you're taking more oxygen and nutrients to your issues that are injured and they were needing to heal and repair so so for Frank you're what you're saying is you're not delivering cold to the tissue which is what people have traditionally done instead you're you're doing various things to bring heat to the tissue it sounds like. absolutely when you do that you know he feels better to most people than the eyes yeah that's me yeah help you know like your admission with your lower back and stuff that's an area where. along with neck and shoulders at that he will help to reduce muscle spasm. and then and then it's increasing blood flow to help promote healing so immediately movement exercise analgesic instead of the anti inflammatories and then the TV and make stands for treat the problem instead of the symptoms so it's a it's a completely different approach than conventional medicine that generally speaking a symptom oriented we want to go to the nature of the problem but injury to those two issues and and you know whether it's a biker current a laser. wait there be prolotherapy there are so many natural therapies acupuncture that that can promote healing and decrease pain so hopefully those things don't become longer okay so me too you know what I like about that acronym it spells meat I I like that is the meat eating tofu hating nutritionist Liz is super of that sucker Brian Frank I'm Kyle drew okay so somebody wrote in and said listen I'm brand new to the show and had some nice words to say about it said I don't think that you guys are gonna be up able to help me though I was just diagnosed with bone on bone needs have been hurting for an awfully long time I've got bone on bone nothing they can do about it the doctor says knee replacement is in my future and probably pretty soon because apparently he's in a lot of misery and he said is there anything said don't tell me glucosamine of taking glucosamine I forget that but is there anything else that you'd recommend soul for you who wrote that end Dr Brian Frank what's your opinion. all that kind of bread and butter of our practice you know really common so I would urge a yes come on in we grew prolotherapy which is the original stem cell therapy we stimulate the body's stem cells and growth factors to plug into that name where the cartilage has worn out and and those stem cells that will be flooding into the New York. but I literally will make sure to become healthy cartilage any in in my text books on prolotherapy you know there's there's X. rays of patients that were bone on bone before and then afterwards you know through a series of treatments and sometimes to mature them there were no longer a phone a phone because you literally regenerate healthy tissue healthy structure amazing amazing about how long do I know that we asked this a lot but this is a brand new listener about how long might it take is it is it a five year process in other words. you know we typically see patients every couple of weeks but because we want your body to have time to bring in their stem cells or growth factors and again that healing and repair process in sports in people who really need to get back up there because you know if it's high school sports you give me a scholarship that's an important deal for young players okay so. in sports related type things sometimes we seem every week but for most people it's every two weeks so you know by the time we do for treatments we're somewhere in that eighty eighty five percent of patients that have made significant process progress and and you know decrease pain decreased need for pain medicine increased tolerance activities and and many people are completely down and. portrait much if it's an acute injury if it's chronic they've been bone on bone no it probably is going to be four six would be average for most people but a four to six treatment was. every couple weeks with a one and you know it's stimulating the body to actually get well. you know when I when I'm asked about prolotherapy from people who are out and about they'll say what what one of the big headlines for prolotherapy that's not how they say it that's my interpretation yeah my big headlines are it number one it's the original stem cell therapy the original stem cell ago that's interesting number two it seems to be just as effective as actual stem cells being injected in it into the tissue it for the most part just pretty much right in line with actual stem cells but number three way way way less costly I mean we're talking what a tenth of the price of of of actual stem cell therapy. yeah and I would only at that comment slightly is improper appears also actual stem cell therapy but true what we're gathering is we're stimulating the body to flood those into the joy rather than actually harvesting them from bone marrow or fat or even amniotic pulling cord blood material which which by the way doc Frank absurd interrupt but I must tell you I received a few phone calls over the past several months and they're from stem cell companies and they're looking to hire somebody in Oklahoma City to promote their stem cell therapy and as I began researching the stem cell business and this is where they inject stem cells into the body it's not doing prolotherapy where you're. being up your body's own stem cells but it's just injecting stem cells and man there is a lot of Tom foolery and that lots and lots of CD under handed kinds of things going on where for example there there was one company where people were spending twenty thousand dollars to get stem cell treatment and there were no stem cells in the stem cell therapy and it in and they said we we have a bunch of stem cells in this vile here we're just gonna injected into turns out no stem cells I want to by pass that all together in addition to the fact that there's an awful lot of safety issues and everything else the pro of therapy that you've talked about is there re attractive to me and it's attracted to a lot of our listeners who have come to you and they were hunched over and now they're walking again so it seems to me that when we talk about pro with there be the original stem cell therapy original and am I right pretty much just as effective as when they do when they inject stem cells into the body pretty much just as effective yeah yeah it's it's pretty equal there and and even other people will know about the R. P. played rich plasma ho yeah yeah hold water yeah all right in line with that true but you're looking at a a factor of one ten for one fifth the price when you go to class. well and that's a big deal for a lot of people listen they're people who are hunched over miserable limping kind of putting off surgery I'm glad that you put it off in this in it in the sense that I wanted you to hear this show and I need you to make an appointment with doctor Brian Frank he's up in Edmond here's the phone number four zero five seven six three seven six zero three that's four oh five seven six three seven six zero three go to the website brand new website by the way it looks great read.

"Doctor Dan Solloway PHD nutrition. I have Dr Brian Frank with me brilliant, doctor here. Not only is a NC geologist one of the leading paint experts in the country. And but he also has a next what I think of it as a doctor, it's called a fellowship. But it's another five years of study to in functional medicine, very rare, very important. If you wanna live long and healthy as long as you can not just deal with disease, but how to live long. Now, speaking of that Dr Frank. There. We keep seeing every couple of weeks or someone shooting somebody up, and that happened today and it's going to happen again in a month or two and I know someone has to do in with well it has to do with drugs. It can have the do with post traumatic stress with soldiers coming back after doing to me tours and not getting rest. It can ha- but I as a nutritious and you as a doctor with a broad understanding as an attrition. So I look at all the deficiencies in our food, depleting the, the nervous system, and sometimes starting to childhood and never letting the nervous system develop and then adrenal fatigue. So I want you to dress goes, if I had a child grandkid, if I had a are myself, and I was under a stress I couldn't handle stress like I should be able to what would you do for me? You know, it's a really critically important concept you're talking about Dan, and we, we should quite a bit of Genesis health and first off is in functional medicine. We we test a bit differently than than the conventional doctors do. And then, Secondly, we treat it in address differently, so on the testing into things when we're looking at fatigue, or we're looking at stress that people are going through, and that can be positive stress, as well as negative stress, because, you know, I travel a lot and I love that, but you go with time zones and airports and things like that, and it's a stress, even though it can be enjoyable. So what we do when we test is, is we look at the adrenal cortisol. The adrenal gland is our primary stress planned and, and with, with the twenty four seven type of schedules that we keep in America, we have a significant amount of adrenal stress and. When we do saliva test to test, the, the core dissolve it. Those levels will be high, and then people get burned out. And so the goes through a stage where they have some adrenal stress, but then they also have what we call adrenal fatigue. And if you stay burned out long enough and you don't you don't address it, then you'll be in fatigue, twenty four seven. So we test differently we use, we use the saliva typically, and I think the best recommended way is to do that in conjunction with the four major hormones, the estrogen progesterone testosterone DHEA, and then with a blood test for five hundred panel, comprehensive panel. And the reason we do that because your hormones your and your function, so integral together that if you're not looking at the full picture, you really gonna miss something there. Yes. And I used to always think, oh, you gotta go if your thyroid's logo right for the thyroid, then I learned no. Not necessarily good idea. You gotta get the adrenals, healthy before you do the renewed crack me if I'm wrong here, because the it will burn out the they journals, more really overstress it more if you hype thyroid in not feed the rentals. So one, Sherry Ross USA, say, no, you I have to drill do with journalists in the thyroid. I don't know how you approach, if you do both as time or if you want. Typically. Together. But we so we do the testing. I find out what the status is. And then with, with the thyroid were, we're tending to use more of the natural armor type preparations that are, that are natural preparations, and more comprehensive they not only have t- four like syndrome, but they have which Synthroid synthetics, I rode, but the Nicotrol Reuter natural, but they have T one two, three four five, and then when we address the adrenal specifically, I think you're right, we do need, if you're not going to address them, and the vast majority of us in America, we, we go go, go. And so we, we will have problems eater. Adrenal stress adrenal, fatigue, or mixed pattern. So with the stress we use, what are called adapted Yanic herbs? So their natural products, but they, they helped to bring and lower that stress level, lower that cortisol level. And to. Some degree. They can help bring up the cortisol that's low when you're in periods of adrenal fatigue. If, if somebody has significant adrenal fatigue, we usually use some natural combinations that have the adapted genetic herbs plus a metro glandular adrenal usually like from Christine New Zealand shape that type of thing, some of them in rations, also have some famous and pancreas. But, but so we use natural adapted herbs. And then sometimes if there's a heavy fatigue component than we'll use some natural glandular support as well. Very interesting. I personally take our no take, what is it called is, is basically the same as armor make throwing nature throwing I take nature throw had been taken it for quite a few years, Dr haggling got it on and, and my friend. Dr Kasim Ingram said depending how you developed in the womb, he said are methodically type I have. Deficiency in thyroid from day one where other people are dribbled types and different types, depend on her, and so that has to be fed and addressed. And I also take twenty five milligrams of tried sounds like a lot. But it that's about what I need right now. So. Yeah. We do visual testing where we, we get patients. Little sponges of high down to do a skin test. And how rapidly the body absorbs that I'd, I'm from the you know, we just do it on the inside of the wrist. And, and when you put that on, if you have adequate stores, you'll see a Brown, orange Brown spot for sixteen to twenty four hours but quite honestly Dan study show that over ninety six percent of Americans are depleted in iodine. So that means essentially, everybody's gonna fail that test. And, and so I Don is very important for immune system, very important for the time.

"Every single week, you're telling friends, I'm meeting new people who have heard our show for the very first time we've done this for seventeen years or this is beginning the seventeenth year. And some people are just now tuning into it. I'm so glad that you're here. We always start the show with a medical practitioner who we feel you need to know about. This is Dr Brian Frank. He is a medical doctor. He is integrative. He is functional. He has everything from anti-aging to weight loss today. We'll talk about integrative pain relief techniques, and he's up in Edmond at re-genesis health, Dr Frank how do you do brother? Hey, perfect tile. A my my family. And I got out the other day, and it's just time to stretch the old bones. I will tell everybody and admit it, I did know exercise over the over the winter. I know exercise of throughout the autumn. I was doing other. You know, what I just didn't do it? And so we got out we decided to start moving a little bit who it didn't feel good dock. It didn't feel good at all. And so I think about a lot of people who maybe they're pulling out the shorts and the and the sneakers and they're getting out and they're even getting injured. They have the bumps the bruises the pains or something more serious. There is an integrative functional medicine approach to handling that. And there is a conventional medical approach to handling that. And one of them might actually make the problem. Worse. Talk about that talk. Yeah. Yeah. You know, I I've written articles before entitled inflammation can be good. And the the reason we talk about that is because when we strain something when we aggravates something it becomes inflamed. The the real secret behind that is that just what that's the very mechanism God gave us to heal and repair. And so when we reach for the Advil and Aleve appropriate Motrin, and those types of things we're actually inhibiting the very mechanism God gave us to heal and repair those structures, and and really it's because in conventional American medicine we've gotten into such a habit of treating the symptoms instead of actually understanding the nature of the problem as well as the remedy healing and repair for that problem. And so that's why written that inflammation can be good. And and along with that. Let's say you sprain your ankle when you get out for. For your first spring run because you've been stoked up. All craig. Oh, wintertime, and you know, you get a little swelling. You get a little pain and discomfort, maybe a lot. Well, the pain and discomfort that's going to naturally curb your activities limit your activities somewhat. And and then the swelling actions a natural splintering mechanism. But but then the the inflammatory cells specifically, the very immature inflammatory cells that come in those are actually have stem cell qualities, and so those tendons ligaments, get strained in in torn on a on a cellular level, the the cartilage in the knee that gets worn thin, even including those those inflammatory cells are the stem cells that literally will become new healthy cartilage or literally will become Lou healthy fiberglass to heal and repair those injuries. And so we that's that's extra. Ordinary by the way, what you're saying is unbelievable that wasn't really dreamt of in clinical practice even a few years ago. I mean, this is Xtra how long you. I know that you've been with prolotherapy and doing prolotherapy for an awfully long time. But I I mean as a physician one who was in the surgery, suite for an awfully long time in your in your career was this fathomable to you way, back when that actually Cartlidge, and and various components of the body could be actually regenerated from from simply Stimson part of my conventional training. You're right. And and, you know, being an anesthesiologist and a anesthesia pain medicine specialist. I was trained to of course, being in the operating room. You know, that's a completely abnormal situation. Anyway, we're doing things there to help the body, you know, thrive and do well through a surgical intervention. But even in anesthesia pain medicine, really everything we did. We used a lot of corticosteroids and the epidurals space selective, their blocks and joints and things like that. And and that was with the the, you know, the understanding that. Oh, wow. Inflammations bad. And and you know, those steroids will knock it down. And and you know, a lot of people do fairly well with that. But but there's nothing inherent in that that heels and repairs you're talking about just the pain relieving anti inflammatories. And that goes all the way from prescription down to ibuprofen. And acetaminophen that you can get WalMart. Right. Yeah. And then you look at over the last year's been quite a number of any inflammatory pain beds. That have been found to be dressed detrimental to health and been taken off the market for cardiac and other problems. And so we we really have taken a very casual stance with these and bashed Tylenol. And and you know, I did a study. Oh, well number of years ago back in around twenty twelve there were oh, maybe six hundred and twenty five deaths from Tylenol overdose in America. In the same year from anti inflammatory pain meds. There are over a hundred thousand people presenting to the hospital and over twenty thousand of them died. So we've got to understand that. It's it's not Tylenol bad. Anti-inflammatories good. We need the ideas. Let's get well. And and let's let's he'll and repair. And learn what nature provides for us in that regard. Well, let me let me take that opportunity. Apologised for a second. Let everybody know you're listening to super health here on NewsRadio one thousand KT. Okay. That's Dr Brian Frank. I'm Kyle drew talking about integrative pain approaches, and really tissue regeneration approaches. So now that we know some of the problems with how the conventional medical world deals with these issues you deal with it a little bit differently. What what is your approach? Well. Well, I, you know, the therapies that we offer at re-genesis health for integrative pain management. They certainly include prolotherapy, which is the original stem cell therapy and with acute injuries. It's remarkable that many times people only need one or two treatments. The chronic people people that have had their their worn out knees or their rotator top or something they're low back problems neck problems, you know, for years. We're usually looking at a series of forty six treatments for the acute injuries many times. It's a short one two or three treatments, and and we've stimulated the bodies very own stem cell response to heal and repair those structures. But then we also offer medical acupuncture, microcurrent therapies, laser therapies, pulse wave therapies bio magnetic therapy. So there's a lot of therapies that with. Oh my goodness. It's been thirty eight years, you know, got out of medical school. I can't believe I've had the opportunity to really immersed in multiple modalities rather than just one or two. Well, and what you were saying about I'm so glad that you brought up multiple modalities multiple strategies to deal with this because you know, not everybody actually needs tissue regeneration. They, you know, we talk about bone on bone as we age or there's been a massive tear or something like that. And that is when we are so thankful to have stem cell type therapies available to us through re-genesis health. But there's a lot of times. That's not the problem. Really? But I'm still in pain. You've got a lot of tricks in your bag to be able to deal with that for medical acupuncture on. Well, that's right. You know, we we started off talking about the regenerative therapy of prolotherapy, and you know, as new original stem cell therapy. I mean, Dr Dr George Hackett the the founder rose prolotherapy. He he came to this conclusion in nineteen thirty nine that that weakened ligaments around the joints were the primary issue behind many, many, low back problems a minute. It went from there to back some next or shoulders, and knees, and hips and so forth. So you know, these are not new therapies they've been around for a long long time in that case over eight years. That's a that's extraordinary and people have been using it successfully for an awfully long time. A lot of people who have come to your clinic are really not mobile. They're not walking upright and then after treatment which could. Could be a matter of weeks, maybe months, but all of the sudden or gradually I suppose over time here, they are getting their life back again dock. And I think that that's gotta be unbelievably gratifying. No matter. What the age of patient is I would suspect. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Absolutely. I treat preteens, and I treat up my my most senior patient she had back problems. And I can't remember either hip or knee, and what I began treating her last year, she was ninety eight and she had her ninety ninth birthday. And she just did tremendously. You know, I keep threatening to come to your office to get examined and see if prolotherapy is right for me. And what happens usually doc is that I spend an all long time being almost immobile. I my work ends up keeping me just kind of static and stoic and seeded, and, you know, not great for physical health. And then all of a sudden springtime comes up put on the shorts. And hey, I want to go move, and I start moving, and then I feel everything that never really got repaired. Six months ago. So I I keep threatening to come to the office. And and get started with this. I know a lot of people are listening, and they're in a situation where kosh they've been putting it off putting it off putting it off or they've been told you know, what you're gonna have to go ahead and get a hip replacement and knee replacement. You're going to have to have surgery on your shoulder. You are going to have to take very radical steps to get this problem solved. But you hear Dr Frank weakened and week out. And you just thinking, oh, should I call him? Should I call them? The answer is yes. Call him give it a chance. Give Dr Brian Franken. Call make an appointment. Sit down talk through your situation..

"Health. My name is Kyle drew meat. Eating tofu hating nutritionist right here on NewsRadio one thousand K. Okay. Dr Brian Frank joins us every single week to get the show started. He is a medical doctor means he's got the power of the prescription pad, but he's an integrative physician. He's been all over the place. He's been in anesthesia been in anti-aging pain recovery. He's been in all areas, and he is right here in Oklahoma City at re-genesis health, and we're gonna talk injuries today. Dr Frank, how're you brother? I am perfect Wicky on superhero Saturday. I appreciate it man every week, and you know, you've had some injuries. And I know that I think a ski trip injury. And that has shaped some of what you've done. In the pain management and injury recovery space. But one of the one of the things that we all here, if whether you're a first responder if you are an EMT like I was or a physician like you we hear this acronym rice it stands for rest. I compress and elevate, and you told me actually, that's probably the opposite of what we need to be doing. Why don't you talk about that a little bit? Yeah. It's it's one of my favorite things teach. And I when I say that I do that teaching with patients, but also teaching positions around the world. You know, what happened is that American medicine has become so symptom oriented that you know, somebody twist their ankle. Or twist their neom mask, the natural tendency is oh, yeah. You know? Let's elevate it let's restaurant shit. Impressive. And when you start to study and understand the nature of injury and repair the every one of those things in rice rest ice from Chris LV, actually, inhibits healing, but it addresses symptoms. And so we've become shortsighted. So it's like with so many things in conventional medicine, it it does something there is an effect and maybe a palpable effect. It's something that helps with symptoms, but in terms of actual recovery may not be the best. Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. Right. And so we have to really step back, and sort of pull back from what the contemporary ethical medical model is and that is, you know, treating symptoms but not looking at the nature of the problem. And so when we understand how we get injured and how we repair actually the inflammatory response is essential not not just help. It is essential in order for musculoskeletal structures to here on repair. And so that means that both way as physicians, but also we as patients have. Gone, and you know, to WalMart or Walgreens, or wherever we go and pick up the Advil and Aleve and ibuprofen Motrin and celebration, all those things we we've actually address symptoms, but we've inhibited the very process of healing that God gave us because what happens is those inflammatory cells that come in those primitive little immature little inflammatory cells actually have stem cell qualities, and if allowed to do their proper work that those stem cells literally would become move healthy fiberglass in a in a ligament or tendon that's been stretched or stranger even torn meniscus been torn in those five blasts and Turner gonna lay down collagen and fiber the proteins that rebuild and regenerate healthy structure. So well, I if I could just interrupt for a half a second just to make sure I understand one of the things Josh bell us in the studio. And Josh, and I. Got together and Saturday last week and watch the UFC there a big fight night. And sometimes what you see in that. Or maybe you'll see it in football or really any sport. You see somebody, and they they've been out they've been fighting. They've just been beaten up and kicked in everything. And then they go to the corner, and they're putting ice on them to bring the swelling down to do some things. Because in that moment, they need symptom relief. They're not so much concerned about full on recovery. So there's a place for symptom relief in an acute way. But then when it comes time to how do I actually get it? You know, you're out in the school yard you injure yourself. Now, it's time to recover over the weekend. This is the thing that we need to be concerned about is. How do we address it at that point to really help promote long-term actual healing? Am I am? I sort of okay on that. Yeah. Yeah. Okay, right direction. And so that's why what I do again. Whether I'm teaching a patient or whether I'm teaching a group of physicians as we move from the rice protocol. We've moved to meet all down there. You don't have to say anything more. Let's just talk about meat for the rest. No, I'm kidding. So meet stands for something nutrition. That's right meeting means is the stands for movement and Easterns for exercise. So what that means is we actually encourage exercise when tolerated and within reason. So not excessively. But you know, if you think about an injury, if we were primitive k people then chased by sabertooth tiger. We sprained her ankle that gets fat and swells that swelling that information's going to create natural splitting discomfort is going to limit our activity. But then as we begin to recover, we're going to have a little bit of activity in movement, and that's good because that promotes healing. And then the hey is that we treat with handle Jesus rather than the anti-inflammatories. Basically, you're looking at Tylenol extra strength Tylenol rather than Advil. Ibuprofen Motrin and all those things because you don't want to inhibit those inflammatory cells. Those are your stem cells to heal and recover. Interesting. So this is one of those rare times on super hair health where you will hear the word Tylenol without derision in the voices. Let me as an analgesic. Yeah. I have to do that a lot especially with my patients that are keen on natural stuff and really liked to bash acetaminophen, I did a study one time, and I believe it was twenty twelve there were about six hundred twenty three people that died in the US from Tylenol overdose. And and that's a horrible thing. However in that same year over a hundred thousand people presented to the emergency rooms across the nation for an anti inflammatory pain, medicine problems and twenty over twenty percent of them died. So everybody likes to get on the bandwagon against Tylenol. But my goodness. The the risk of death and and problems from the anti inflammatory pain meds is markedly higher and about twenty thousand people a year die from GI bleeding with those. And so, you know, now that being said what we're talking about is is injury recovery and repair. Yep. And so that's where the the mate protocol is really a prolotherapy. Which is we've talked about many times is the original stem cell therapy at one tenth of the price. The whole idea the tea and made some movement exercise. Analgesic instead of anti inflammatory. And then teaming treat the problem. Not the symptom is if we suppress the symptoms. We're also going to suppress feelings. So we need to treat the problem. And so we use heat instead of ice we use I use Vicks, vapor, rebel menthol or menthol camera type bomb that's gonna warm the tissues that's gonna make the joint feel better because it's got a really botanical plant based analgesics in it. But when you increase the blood flow that's gonna take more oxygen nutrients to those tissues to heal and repair. You know, it's interesting that you brought by the way you listen to super out. That's Brian Frank. I'm Kyle, drew. It's interesting the say this because throughout my life anytime I've had an injury I have tended toward heat instead of cold. I it's just the ice on it. It just felt awful where an in the heat felt great and. Maybe that was too simplistic of a way of thinking about it. But I just went, and I just added heat, and I remember a year after I graduated high school a lot of the guys from high school got together and decided to play football one day out at the high school football field. We decide to play tackle on top of that bunch of idiots and then without any pads or anything, and boy, I was beat up doc beat up. I think I did everything in the meat protocol, including actual meat. I think I got barbecue that night. But but movement exercise, I I'm positive that. I took an analgesic and I'm positive that. I began treating the problem with heat rather than cold. I felt pretty good not long after that. Now, there's something that we can't do that you can though and that is the stem cell therapy. You like to begin with prologue? Oh therapy, which is all of the same same affects as stem cells at a tenth of the price is the original stem cell therapy. And with only a minute and a half left. Tell us how this factors in to the recovery process. Well, yeah. Prolotherapy has been remarkable. Because we're actually when we treat a joint it can be in a joint like in the knee can be the tendons, ligaments around the joint. So that can be the need a shoulder to tennis elbow, the plantar fascia heels for the the the the spine because that's all joints. You know, next mid back lower back in we treat the ligaments tendons that have become weakened and are not providing proper support. And so when we treat with prolotherapy. It's stimulating the patients very own stem cells and growth factors to come in. And he'll of repairable structures rather than to suppress the healing response from cortisone injection and things like that. When we come to see you will you give us a list of the best kinds of meat to to eat that night ground beef, or or okay, never mind. Maybe I'm misunderstanding..

"Welcome back. Folks, you listen, NewsRadio one thousand K. Okay. And this is Dr Dan Solloway PHD in nutrition been doing this since March nineteen ninety seven and this is dance health and fitness form. And I have two friends of mine with me, I have Dr Brian Frank which all of you know, if you listen to this show brilliant. Doctor fact, I've been going to myself, but I sent a friend of mine over there. Brent Kennedy became as everyone calls him runs. All the Louise in town. And became seems to know everybody. So you probably know if you've ever crossed his bath and became was having problems with his neck, and they wanted to operate on it, and I said before you do that you need to see Dr Frank. So guys tell me tell me what you found became tell me Dr Frank what you'd how you worked with him. What you did point. Well, I'll jump in there first this is, Dan and. Back in two thousand and six I have some next surgery and has some disc problems and how about seven eight months ago. My next started hurt me real bad. So I went to two different neuro surgeons in Oklahoma City, both reputable grips, and they both wanted to fuse my five six and seven disc talking to you and you hook me up with Dr Frank I went to see Dr Frank approximately two and a half three months ago. And Dr Franken jump in here about I think I've done five injections, and I can promise you my neck is eighty to ninety percent better. And I have not had any surgeries and don't plan on it. And my next Phelan really, really good cool. That's really cool now dot Frank. You want to talk about what you did. And why it worked? Sure. Yeah. It's been great to see Brenton. And fortunately historians like eighty to ninety percent of patients that we see and our integrative payments met. You know, I come from all. This is an anesthesiologist so not only spending decades in the operating room with the spinal surgeons, but also very very active in an anesthesia pain for for many years. But but a lot of people are surprised I ditched that. Because the reason I did is because we actually you know, there's therapies that we can do in the integrative pain management world did actually stimulate healing and repair regeneration of the ligaments that support the spine or it could be the rotator cuff, it could be the hip and back it should be, you know, worn out cartilage in the knee. And so especially prolotherapy, which is what we've been doing for brass is the original stem cell therapy. I usually say it's the original stem cell therapy had about one tenth of the price of the things that are currently advertise in what we do and classic chromotherapy is we're using a local anesthetic light came along with a dextrose solution, and that sounds odd sugar. But but that stimulates the patients. Own stem cells and growth factors to come in. And literally, those stem cells will come in and these ligaments of of the next that we've been trading in Brampton, and and they all mature to become fiberglass, the healthy cells of those making Mitch so we're regenerating healthy support structure in his neck, and and that takes pressure off of disks to take the pressure off of Merv, George, and and so it's a it's a regenerative therapy to actually, you know, restore structural support to his neck, and and when you get a healthy joint, healthy joints, don't hurt. Yeah. You toughened up the ligaments bring it back to more normal youthful level and supports that holds everything in place. What I was worried about for you and might have happened from first surgery. When you when you operate on the spine like that at first, you feel a little better. And then in a few weeks are less the body starts laying scar tissue down, and this are squeezing the nerve. And you can end up having to even more pain than you had before. There are things you can do the void that build up a scar tissue. But most doctors don't know what it is. And so I'm I'm so glad you went and did this. I know that you've been telling people at the gym that's being K, and I've got to really know each other. Well, and how important this is due in check it out before you look at doing something as radical but surgery is surgery and lately I've actually sent a couple more people over to Dr Franken. And again, you know, I mean, I went to I went to to surgeons both great guys actually, one of the groups did the first surgery on me. And and he just said how you're going to have to try to live with it or we can go in there and fees those things and then after. We're talking to you. And you hook me up with doc. It just it's just been continuously getting better and better. And I last treatment I had, you know, Dr Franken I talk about it. I'm gonna wait about a month even say if I need to get another one, but so far so good, and and been really really pleased with everything so far. One time we need to make people aware about why stem cells are coming there. There's a little pain before the before it gets better in that. Correct. Dark in pain. Isn't there the stem cells don't come and do their job? Well, now, I modified that slightly. Some people will get sore for a couple of days after the treatment as stem cells come in. When I started this many years ago, we use pretty aggressive solutions that you know, about ninety eight percent of my patients thought a bus hit him. But we don't I don't use those anymore. We use the the classic solutions. And with those about half the patients have some soreness in about half, the patients don't have any. And yet they still get good results. So there's you know, it has been a process they the last twenty twenty five years of the different solutions that I've used that. We've got a good balance between yes about half patients have some soreness. But it's not the delegating discomfort said it was twenty years ago. Very interesting because I was probably based on information on heard years ago and just thought that was standard procedure. But what I think's going on this theory, but it's not important for everybody just smiling curiosity. I think there's a one of the nutrients is dependent on dextrose and the glycol nutrient send out messages from cell to sail. And I was wondering if they were what told stem cells where to come and go, but before I don't really need to answer that because we're about out of time here, give me your phone number. Dr Franken tell people how to get a hold of you. Yeah. My clinic re-genesis help is at sixty five Southcenter boulevard and Edmund just north of the big lock campus and our phone number is four zero five seven six three seven zero six zero three give it to him.
