I N T E G R A L Mission

It is my mission to find the best treatment plan that is individually tailored to the client. I believe in the signs and symptoms my clients are showing me, not just numbers from the test page. The people that I treat are not patients, they are clients as most of them show tendencies towards disease which have not yet shown. I work with my clients towards functional solutions to the present problems as the answers unfold. To accomplish meaningful results I take into account personal and family history combined with individual lifestyle, occupational, environmental and genetic factors. Administration of non-invasive cardiovascular, hormonal and micronutrients testing is one of the hallmarks of my initial approach to every client.

Inflamm-aging & Immunity

 

“Inflamm-aging refers to the constant cascade of processes resulting in low grade systemic inflammation also called silent inflammation. We “inflamm-age” from the time we are born. Our candles burn in different intensity and speed. The speed our candle burns can be controlled and managed by our lifestyle.

“Reduce inflammation to treat the root of many issues. If your gut isn't working right it can cause so many other issues.”

Jay Woodman 

     What are some causes of Chronic Inflammation?

  1. Persistent exposure to pathogens/infection causing ongoing production of leukocytes. (white blood cells)

  2. Autoimmune reactions (whether by genetic potential or damaged cells) which cause immune cells to activate, increasing production of inflammatory cell signaling proteins called cytokines.

  3. Weakened ability of the body to remove wastes and debris causing a subsequent increase in free radicals  signaling damaging messages to the immune system.

  4. Increase in toxicity by way of compromised detoxification pathways in the liver, or the very common altered gut microbiota and leaky gut wall which causes the re-circulation of wastes back into the bloodstream. These toxins and wastes again trigger the immune-inflammatory cascade of reactions

  5. Infection and activation of viruses such as EBV that can be associated with accelerated aging and increased deterioration of the immune system, showing as a loss of immune/antigen memory, surveillance, and overactive innate immune responses.

Nutrition

Nutrition, nourishment, or aliment, is the supply of materials - food - required by organisms and cells to stay alive. But it is much more. It can help us thrive… Adequate and balanced nutrition plays a role in preventing many of the most common chronic diseases of today.  say something short, on your nutrition philosophy. The rest of this is too detailed for this kind of web page.

Toxicity

Aging is a major risk factor for many pathological conditions including cancer, diabetes, heart disease, stroke and neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease (PD). The occurrence of these conditions, which are major causes of death in both industrialized and developing countries, has risen markedly in the last century, largely due to the increase in life expectancy as well as urbanization. In addition to changes in lifestyle, urbanization is associated with environmental degradation. Indeed, exposure to environmental toxins has been identified as a substantial causal risk factor for the majority of these age‐dependent diseases.

Exercise 

The toll that aging takes on a body extends all the way down to the cellular level. But the damage accrued by cells in older muscles is especially severe, because they do not regenerate easily and they become weaker as their mitochondria, which produce energy, diminish in vigor and number.

Exercise is good for people, as everyone knows. But scientists have surprisingly little understanding of its cellular impacts and how those might vary by activity and the age of the exerciser. 

A study by Mayo Clinic published in Cell Metabolism suggests that certain sorts of workouts may undo some of what the years can do to our mitochondria.


Mayo Clinic Experiment

72 healthy but sedentary men and women who were 30 or younger
72 men and women older than 64.

Baseline measures established were:

  1. Aerobic fitness,

  2. Blood-sugar levels

  3. Gene activity and mitochondrial health in their muscle cells

The volunteers were randomly assigned to 3 particular exercise regimens.

  1. Weight Training (3x/week)

  2. Brief Interval training 3x/week (4 min. intense + 3 min. mild x 3) repeated 3 times.

  3. Combination of:
    Stationary bike (moderate pace) x 30 min. 3x/week alternating w light weight lifting on other days.

  4. No exercise.

It seems as if the decline in the cellular health of muscles associated with aging was “corrected” with exercise, especially if it was intense, says Dr. Sreekumaran Nair, a professor of medicine and an endocrinologist at the Mayo Clinic and the study’s senior author.

In fact, older people’s cells responded in some ways more robustly to intense exercise than the cells of the young did — suggesting, he says, that it is never too late to benefit from exercise.

The toll that aging takes on a body extends all the way down to the cellular level. But the damage accrued by cells in older muscles is especially severe, because they do not regenerate easily and they become weaker as their mitochondria, which produce energy, diminish in vigor and number.

Genetics

The aging process is like an iceberg. We are only acutely aware of what we see.

It is difficult to define how we feel and impossible to see our potential for feeling better and living longer. Every journey has a beginning and the end. We make choices from the first moment of our first breath. The more we know, the more questions should emerge. “It's not denial. I'm just selective about the reality I accept. “If I do what I’ve always done, I’ll get what I’ve always gotten.”

Genetics is the study of heredity. Heredity is a biological process where a parent passes certain genes onto their children or offspring. Having access to information about your genetic predisposition offers invaluable insight about the capacity to endure or succumb on the journey of life.

Genetic information relates to:

A condition that is clinically apparent—to confirm a diagnosis a particular disorder or an condition

A propensity that is latent in order to predict the likelihood that you will, or may, develop the disorder in the future, or may be a carrier for the disease or disorder.

It is your choice to have such a knowledge since it offers both benefits and burden. The benefit of knowing your path and managing the risks by lifestyle changes, makes the journey of living more predictable. Do remember that a gene alone does not cause a medical condition. Environmental, dietary, lifestyle, and other factors play strong epigenetic roles, and all those factors cannot be controlled in studies.

Regeneration 

Humans have the expectation to live long lives free from disease. The continuous development of new therapeutic strategies that promote the regeneration and optimal healing of tissues and organs damaged by trauma, disease, or congenital defects. The field of regenerative medicine aims to meet these demands, focusing on restoring lost, damaged, aged, or dysfunctional cells and their extracellular matrices to return function to tissues.

Redner Integral Health offers a limited and effective scope of regenerative approaches to improve ailing and “fatigued” tissues that could greatly improve both the span and quality of life.  Again, put this in “services”

Age Management

“It is never early and never late until it’s too late”

Revolutionary Age Management therapies are designed to empower your body’s vital functions and to put you back in control of your aging process. The comprehensive approach to hormone optimizing and balancing, exercise, and nutrition will help you achieve results; results that can turn back the clock 10 to 20 years, slowdown or reverse the aging process, deter the causes of disease, and optimize health as you age. With state-of-the art comprehensive testing and analysis, Thomas Redner, MD Board Certified Physician, will pinpoint any hormonal or nutritional and metabolic deficiencies you may have and design a customized program that meets your individual needs.

The mission to help patients struggling with chronic illnesses and declines associated with aging is to assist the body to regenerate and repair itself. RIH provides the highest quality therapeutic products, innovation and social responsibility by using cutting-edge medicine.

Lifestyle 

What is Lifestyle:
The set of habits and customs that is influenced by the life-long process of socialization, including social use of substances such as alcohol and tobacco, dietary habits, and exercise, all of which have important implications for health.
