Men’s Health


 


Gentleman, I have just three questions for you:

 

What is your most valuable asset?

 

Your house? Retirement account? Vacation home? Business?

Not really… What do you think Steve Jobs would have said at age 56 just before he died from pancreatic cancer?

Exactly. It’s your health

 

Should you be doing more to optimize and preserve your most valuable asset?

‘Nuff said.

Now tell me,

 

Which type of guy are you?

Type 1: “I need to make some changes”

 

Can you handle the truth?

 

If you will indulge me, let’s have a moment of straight talk and man-to-man honesty.

 

It’s about to get real….

 

You can feel yourself getting old. You’re getting fat. Somewhere along the way you gained 20 lbs (or more). Somewhere along the way you developed boobs. You look down at your toes and you can’t see your equipment. Your hair is turning grey and thinning. You notice you don’t have the energy you used to: You need a few cups of coffee or some energy drinks to jump-start your day, and by the early afternoon you are looking around for some place to take a nap.

 

Your sleep sucks. Doctor may have told you to get a CPAP machine because your neck is too fat. Doctor told you to start meds cause your blood sugar or blood pressure or cholesterol (or whatever) is too high. You have nagging, undiagnosed aches and pains that are keeping you from being as active as you want to be. When you do exercise, you find yourself injuring something and then having to take time off to heal. You can’t run a mile without stopping. You couldn’t drop and give me 20 pushups. The thought of doing a few pullups fills you with dread that you would injure something.

 

You often feel overwhelmed, frazzled, and edgy from the demands of life. Or maybe you feel numb and withdrawn. The phrase “Take this life and shove it” at times resonates with you. You’re not making enough money. Negative thoughts frequently run through your mind. Your wife or girlfriend doesn’t look at you the same way she once did. You don’t have that pep in the bedroom that you used to have. You can’t remember the last time you gave some to your wife until she was satisfied and didn’t want it anymore. You have forgotten what it feels like to wake up with a boner.

 

In essence, you are getting out of touch with what it feels like to be a man.

 

God made you for something better than this.

 

I can understand: I used to be that guy. Let me help you…

Type 2: “I’m always looking for an edge”

 

You’re an over-achiever. “Good” is not good enough. You are always looking to get better — bigger, faster, stronger, more income, better relationships, better sex. You want to dominate in every realm — the weight room, the board room and the bedroom. You wonder about testosterone replacement therapy. You read self-help books. You listen to motivational speakers. You are a fan of “Personal Development”. You are familiar with guys like Joe Rogan, Tim Ferriss, Tony Robbins, Jocko Willink, John Maxwell, and Grant Cardone . You take excellent care of your body. You do intermittent fasting; you eat low carb; you take supplements. You shop organic. You make smoothies. You are familiar with terms like “superfoods”, “omega 3s”, “keto”, “paleo”, “H.I.I.T.” and “supersets”. You wear a fitness tracker. You do Crossfit, or BJJ, or Muay Thai — or all three. You train for triathlons. You do endurance races. You challenge yourself every single time you workout. You get off when you set a PR. You geek-out on hacking your physiology for better performance. You keep asking yourself the question “How can I be as healthy and fit as possible?

 

Here’s your problem: You need actionable, personalized, trustworthy, and high-quality health and wellness information — and it’s way too damn hard to find it.

 

Dr. Google?  Confusing, often contradictory, definitely not personalized. Often biased by advertising and self-interest. Too much information = overwhelmed.

 

Your PCP? Doesn’t have enough time for you; doesn’t go beyond basic, superficial testing; doesn’t understand fitness and training principles; not interested or doesn’t understand hormones. Helps you when you are sick but doesn’t understand how to maximize your health.

 

Your coach or trainer? A great person; works hard; pushes you. (Awesome!) But doesn’t have expertise in accurately diagnosing and treating injuries. No access to medical testing and technology. No in-depth medical knowledge of physiology and body systems.

 

So what’s a guy to do?

 

You need someone with expertise in both realms.

 

Let's get started!

It’s no secret: Let me tell you exactly what I will do for you:

Treatments

1. Test your hormones.

Do you have Low T? Low thyroid? Insufficient growth hormone? Stop guessing and find out. Then treat it and track your progress.

 
2. Screen for vitamin and mineral deficiencies.

Question: What do the US Olympic Training Center, the US Tour De France cycling team, and numerous professional team physicians have in common? They all use the same screening test for vitamin and mineral deficiencies that I will share with you.

 
3. Diagnose and treat musculoskeletal aches and pains.

Got a nagging injury that’s holding you back? Perhaps trying to avoid surgery? It’s time for an expert opinion and plan…

 
4. Create a personalized supplement regimen.

Create a personalized, scientifically-validated, and cost-effective supplement regimen to address your specific goals (muscle mass, weight loss, mental clarity, anti-aging, stronger immune system, cancer-prevention, lower blood sugar, etc).

Teaser: What supplement boosts testosterone levels, boosts energy, improves sex drive, treats depression, lowers anxiety, lowers blood sugar, boosts immune function, and protects against Alzheimer’s? And available via a high quality supplier on Amazon for only $2 a month?! I will tell you.

 
5. Create a personalized exercise program.

Trying to gain muscle but hit a plateau? Looking to shed belly fat? Struggling to get your cardio up to par? Dismayed with your lack of flexibility? Let Dr. Turner take you to the next level.

 
6. Minimize your risk for heart attacks and strokes.

Did you know heart attacks are common even among people with normal cholesterol?

If you are serious about your heart, you need advanced screening that goes beyond the basic cholesterol test your PCP checks once a year.

 
7. Minimize your cancer risk.

It’s all in your genes, right? Nothing I can do about it?…Wrong.. 30% of cancers come from lifestyle and environment, 66% from random mutations and only 5% from your genes. Read more here. Dr. Turner can arrange for state-of-the art screening testing.

 
8. Optimize your sleep.

Want a quick reading assignment? Go read all you can about “Slow Wave Sleep” then come talk to me. We will create an action plan together to address this vital aspect of your health.

 
9. Get your sex life on track.

When was the last time you had an honest discussion about erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, low libido, painful sex, or performance anxiety?

 
10. Get your mind right.

Let’s deal with your anxiety, your depression, your self-defeating attitudes. Let’s get you breaking bad habits and creating positive, sustainable behavior change.
