ABOUT DR. BREWER
Dr. Brewer started as an Emergency Doctor. After seeing too many preventable heart attacks, he went to Johns Hopkins to learn Preventive Medicine. While there, he went on the run the post-graduate training program (residency) in Preventive Medicine. From there, he made a career of practicing and managing preventive medicine and primary care clinics. His later role in this area was Chief Medical Officer for Premise, which has close to 1,000 primary care/prevention clinics. He was also the Chief Medical Officer for MDLIVE, the second largest telemedicine company. More recently, he founded PrevMed, a heart attack, and stroke prevention clinic.
At PrevMed, we focus on heart attack, stroke, and cognitive decline. We serve patients who have already experienced an event as well as those who have not developed a diagnosis or event. Dr. Brewer provides services via telemedicine or in person if you’re in the Lexington, KY area. We find a lot of undiagnosed Pre-Diabetes or Insulin Resistance. Treating unrecognized risk factors like Pre-Diabetes allows reduction of risk and prevention of disease.

ABOUT THIS VIDEO:
WARNING -this article is for science geeks. It covers a scientific review article in 2018 on the role of the mitochondria in aging. The Free Radical Theory was actually first published in 1957. It shows how oxidation provides the power of mitochondria. But the resulting Free Oxygen Radicals cause mtDNA damage and decreases in mitochondrial function and mitogenesis(building new mitochondria). More recent evidence demonstrates mitohormesis. That’s the fact that lower doses of poisons end up prolonging life by causing adaptive change in the mitochondria. Mitohormesis is still a work in progress.
But we know how to improve mitochondrial function. Exercise (HIIT) and calorie restriction/fasting.
