Cardiologists have focused on cholesterol as the cause of cardiovascular disease. Researchers are increasingly focusing on inflammation as the common denominator of cardiovascular disease and other chronic illnesses. Taking a very different perspective, Dr. Sergey Dzugan and Dr. George Rozakis in their new book, Your Blood Doesn’t Lie, make a strong case that the root cause of most chronic illnesses is hormone imbalance.

When listening to Dr. Dzugan and Dr. Rozakis, they make so much sense it is easy to miss how unique and profound their message is. While most of medicine, and even anti-aging medicine, tends to focus on medications or supplements to treat symptoms, Doctors Dzugan and Rozakis take a comprehensive systems approach. Their premise is that hormones and other body chemistry need to be rebalanced to a more youthful level, such as a healthy thirty year old level.

They see aging as focusing on time rather than focusing on optimal health. They report that when the “foundation” or system is optimized, many health problems clear up on their own. They see cholesterol not as a problem to be corrected but a symptom that hormones are out of balance and desperately but ineffectively trying to correct the imbalance. We focused on hormones but they also attend to vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other chemistry measured with blood, saliva, or hair samples.

They have both theory and data. With individual patients, it is test, treat, test again, tweak, etc. They also have conducted considerable research in areas such as hormone replacement and conditions including migraines and macular degeneration. They see teaching their method as a way of not only improving patient care, but also generating research on its effectiveness. Their clinic is in Cleveland and they are training physicians around the world in the Dzugan method. Their book, Your Blood Doesn’t Lie, has excellent content while also being well organized and easy to read. I highly recommend it.
