On the podcast in Part 1, we started the conversation on integrative medicine and how the human body has an amazingly complex self-healing mechanism. To help the body heal itself, Caspar Szulc explained that you have to give it what it needs and get it to a state of homeostasis.
Different things can disturb the body’s state of homeostasis, which in turn affects ability to heal. The most common ones he sees at the clinic:
● Oxidative stress
● Multiple pathogens
In addition, we discuss how to improve our immune system to respond to all manner of infections, including viral respiratory infections. This way, even if we get an infection, we can deal with it without poor outcomes.
“Unhealthy people respond poorly to any infection,” Caspar Szulc
Improving our Immune Response
Our immune system defends us against multiple disease-causing pathogens on a daily basis. It is important to boost it to improve our immune response. Even in viral respiratory infections, a strong immune system is the best way to protect yourself.
We have seen cases of people not even realizing they were sick with an infection. This means their immune system did a good job in protecting them.
According to Caspar, some of the ways that can help boost your immune response include supplementation such as:
● Vitamin D
● Vitamin C
The Difference of Healing Vs. Managing Symptoms
One of the greatest strengths of his clinic is the team-based approach to healing. At other practices patients see one doctor and they may consult with other specialists. Caspar’s entire medical team sits down together to review each case
Caspar has found this to be the right approach when it comes to dealing with chronic conditions. With the different expertise and many years of combined medical experience, the whole team works together to chart the patient's best health journey. It’s not about one doctor’s magic protocol; it’s about the innovative medicine protocol. This is achieved by a combination of highly personalized therapies from around the world that we have seen work.
Very often people come to their clinic when they believe they are out of options. But they are not. The truth is there are many cutting edge treatments out there that patients may not be aware of. His team makes it a priority to stay on the cutting edge of research and professional development.
Did you know: 6 in every 10 adults suffer from at least one chronic condition. 4 out of every 10 suffer from two or more.
“The longer you have something, the longer it will take to resolve” Caspar Szulc on managing expectations on healing.
If you have had a condition for years, it won’t take days to resolve it. It can take time. The key may be in the steps of the approach.
How does this approach to healing look? What are the steps?
The body can continue to function with multiple assaults. People wonder around today felling less and less healthy. They suffer through but it slowly gets worse. And year by year they decline until they can no longer deal with the loss of function. Caspar’s clinic unwinds the illness and get down to root causes.
1. Antimicrobicals and anti virals to address hidden infection
2. Improving the organs of elimination
4. Addressing stress
In following this order the body has a chance to heal. After uncovering the often hidden infections and eliminating them. The body needs help turning on its detox pathways. If approached in this order the body can begin to heal.
The One Molecule taking Antiaging World by Storm
There’s a common misbelief that aging well is a matter of luck. Or that cognitive decline is inevitable. Too many people are losing memory, focus and clarity too early. According to research, as we age, our NAD levels plummet to about half of what they were once.
NAD stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, which is the chemical term for a molecule that reacts with oxygen in the mitochondria in every cell of your body in order to create energy so you can move, breathe, pump blood, digest food, think, and generally, live your life. — Lack of this essential cellular fuel is now recognized as a key feature of chronic fatigue, apathy, depression, anxiety, alcohol and drug addiction, weak immune system (infections and cancer), muscle pain and weakness, headaches, memory disturbance, sleep problems, focus and concentration defects and other chronic diseases. NAD deficiency may be an unrecognized epidemic of cellular disease.
Caspar wanted to create a supplement available to a chronic illness patients that couldn’t come into the clinic. He saw incredible benefit to patients when they gave them NAD ivs in the clinic. How could he make this molecule so everyone could have access? So he began the journey to innovate the technology so NAD could be taken as a pill form. After much trial and error Nadovim was born. Its the first physician-formulated, clinically-tested, comprehensive NAD+ brain supplement to naturally replenish the brain.

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
