Telemedicine: Online Doctor Consultations From Your Home
My “telemedicine” service at the Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine has been helping patients worldwide for almost six months now. And it has already exceeded my expectations.
I began in the middle of July offering private consultations with me or my clinical team from the comfort of your own home — or elsewhere — through a live video stream.
So far, dozens of patients have registered to become “telepatients” from across North America and around the world — some from as far afield as Australia, the U.K. and Austria.
In a minute, I’m going to tell you about a great way to take advantage of my telemedicine service.
And we’re not just helping patients with medical problems — although of course that’s a very big part of what we do – we’re also helping them with “cosmetic” issues, too.
Consultations From Anywhere
In today’s Doctor’s House Call, I want to tell you about a “telepatient” in Australia. Thanks to our “intervention,” she reversed her own doctors’ opinion about whether she could undergo a cosmetic procedure because of an ongoing health issue.
OD, a woman in her mid-30s, was beginning to see the early signs of aging on her face – dark circles under her eyes, dry, sagging skin, wrinkles, as well as hyperpigmentation.
She told me during her recent “e-visit” that her doctors in Australia had refused to perform face-volumizing treatment on her, because she was suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome.
The cosmetic treatments she was seeking are all performed routinely at my Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine:
- Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP): This uses natural compounds from your own blood to regenerate skin and revitalize collagen.
- Microneedling: This treatment helps improve your skin’s elasticity and pigmentation.
- Hyaluronic Acid: This compound is the key to restoring volume and moisture to your face. Hyaluronic acid draws moisture into the deep dermis layer and plumps up your skin.
Her doctors were understandably concerned that, given her condition, these treatments would weaken her body further.
So OD contacted me for advice through a telemedicine consultation. Here at the Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine, I’ve also treated numerous patients with chronic fatigue syndrome.
My clinical team assessed OD’s condition and advised that none of these cosmetic treatments would be problematic for her, in spite of her chronic fatigue syndrome.
But, as a precaution, we recommended that OD be given immune system-boosting therapy, like the super-antioxidant glutathione, which is a critical part of your body’s natural mechanism for warding off disease.
I’ve been recommending ways to boost my patients’ glutathione levels for years to help them live long and well. Here at the Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine, I offer glutathione intravenously to my patients — and it’s worked wonders with them.
We also recommended that OD get intravenous MIC/B12 injections to boost her body’s energy synthesis. Methionine, Inositol and Choline (MIC) are natural compounds that help the body burn fat and when combined with vitamin B12, it helps boost metabolism and increase energy. When you don’t get enough B12, your body can’t get energy out of your food. It also can’t form healthy red blood cells. And the result is low energy, weakness and fatigue.
Glutathione and MIC/B12 injections will not only help OD’s body better tolerate the cosmetic procedures, it will also improve her chronic fatigue syndrome and make her feel better.
Following our written recommendation, OD’s doctors in Australia have now agreed to allow the PRP, microneedling and hyaluronic acid treatments to go ahead.
That’s the beauty of telemedicine. You can be treated anywhere in the world.
