Are you ready to revolutionize your understanding of orthopedics and cellular medicine? This episode features Dr. Elizabeth Yurth, a double board-certified physician in physical medicine, rehabilitation, anti-aging, and regenerative medicine. Dr. Yerth shares her journey from traditional orthopedics to a holistic approach influenced by performance athletes and bodybuilders. We discuss the game-changing potential of cellular medicine, including exosomes for arthritis treatment, and explore the complex balance needed for effective NAD supplementation.

Ever questioned the effectiveness of arthroscopic surgery for arthritis? Dr. Yurth sheds light on why arthroscopic surgery is controversial and often detrimental, especially for patients over 30. Discover the promising potential of repurposed drugs like pentosin polysulfate and learn how they could revolutionize arthritis treatment. We also delve into the intricacies of metabolic dysfunctions, personalized medicine, and the need to understand cellular pathways to better treat conditions like diabetes and autoimmune disorders.

From optimizing cellular health for longevity to discussing practical health strategies, this episode is packed with actionable insights. We explore the benefits of NAD precursors like NMN and NR, the importance of CD38 blockers, and the potential of 1-MNA for improving endurance and muscle strength. Dr. Yurth also highlights the benefits of repurposing medications like low-dose Cialis and the necessity of hormone replacement therapy as we age. Join us for an enlightening conversation that promises to equip you with the knowledge to make proactive health investments and embrace cutting-edge medical advancements.

  • Long COVID presents challenges related to mitochondrial dysfunction, and the use of one MNA may offer benefits in improving endurance and muscle strength.
  • A comprehensive understanding of cellular health and its impact on the body is essential in functional medicine, guiding the development of targeted protocols for optimizing cellular pathways. The shift from protocol-driven medicine to functional medicine emphasizes the importance of understanding cellular pathways and addressing the root cause of diseases.
  • The use of pharmaceutical drugs and supplements, as well as the impact of hormones on cellular function, plays a significant role in proactive health management.
  • Rapamycin shows potential as a longevity agent, and exosomes are emerging as a promising tool for regenerative therapy.
  • Patient education and understanding of one's own health are crucial in navigating the complexities of modern medical approaches.


Key Quotes

  • "We're doing a lot of things that we don't know enough about. I think this [massive NAD dosing] is a place where we're doing harm."
  • "We need to stop thinking of arthritis as a wear and tear disease. It is completely and utterly an inflammatory disease process."
  • "I'm going to replace everything that I'm definitely losing [with age] - hormones, peptides, etc. And that's going to help my cell function better."
  • "Exosomes probably have the most regenerative potential of anything in our armatarium right now."
