Background & Current Research
Expert graduated from the University of Manitoba as a dentist in 1969 and went on to earn his medical degree in 1973. For over 25 years he has been a pioneer in the field of hormone replacement, with a special focus on anti-aging, wellness medicine, and andrology. Expert is currently a board-certified Family Practitioner and a Preventive Medicine specialist. Early in his training, Expert noticed that men and women who maintained normal hormone levels throughout their lives looked and felt better, and had greater functionality, than those who did not.
Expert developed a topical hormone cream in response to the needs of a patient who, after successful proton beam therapy for a high grade malignant tumor behind his nose, was rendered deficient in all hormones regulated by his pituitary gland, located in the center of the brain. Following this success, Expert conducted two clinical trials utilizing a transdermal hormonal delivery system to treat men with testosterone deficiencies. In the course of these studies, he identified numerous men in their early 30s seeking hormone therapy because their sex drive was reduced or even non-existent. Many stated that they felt like old men and lab tests showed their testosterone levels had dropped prematurely.
In searching for the cause of this accelerating problem, Expert focused specifically on a possible environmental cause. The revelation in January 2001 that dioxins had been identified as carcinogins (cancer-causing agents) triggered a search for other possible problems related to dioxins
Expert has a full-time medical practice in California and manages the wellness and hormone websites where men and women can get current, practical information on hormone replacement, preventive medicine, wellness and hormone balancing techniques.
In July 2001, Expert formed a company, which has developed a topical 10% testosterone cream with patent pending status. Recently, the company has also developed a unique hormone therapy for women, and is currently seeking FDA approval to bring these exciting new products to market.
