Robert Rowen MD Health Hero Teaches You About Being Healthy

Watch the video series to learn from Dr. Rowen’s educational videos on numerous Health topics.

Dr. Robert Jay Rowen, a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Johns Hopkins University and graduate of the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine is internationally known for his work in the field of complementary/alternative/integrative medicine. He is affectionately known as the “Father of Medical Freedom” for pioneering the nation’s first statutory protection for alternative medicine in 1990 in Alaska, against a concerted opposition from the organized medical community and an imported “quackbuster.”

A few years later, the Alaska governor appointed him to a term on the state medical board against overwhelming opposition from the medical establishment. His appointment was ultimately confirmed by the legislature with overwhelming public support. The rare medical freedom he enjoyed in Alaska enabled him to greatly expand knowledge and experience in a multitude of disciplines and therapies not normally found in medicine.

Jumping into alternative medicine in 1983 through a practice in acupuncture, he quickly expanded to nutritional medicine, chelation therapy, oxidation therapy, homeopathy and herbal medicine, and took intensive training in neural therapy and prolotherapy to help treat and eliminate acute and chronic pain. Alaska’s laws enabled him to work extensively with innovative cancer therapies, ozone, and ultraviolet blood irradiation therapy. He is internationally known and respected for training hundreds of open-minded physicians in these techniques from around the world.

In 2001, he became editor in chief of Second Opinion, one of the nation’s leading monthly publications revealing the frontiers of medicine. Thus, he reduced his practice load considerably to write and teach, and relocated from Alaska to California where he works part time with his like minded talented wife, Terri Su, MD at her Santa Rosa office, Radiant Health Medical Center, in the north Bay area.

You are cordially invited to journey with him into the frontiers of medicine with a free past issues of Second Opinion at Dr. Rowen’s information site. Dr. Rowen has authored numerous articles and some of which may be read online.

Antibiotics are not the only cause of drug-resistant bacteria by Robert Rowen MD

You probably know that overuse of antibiotics is a big reason bacteria become resistant to antibiotics. The bugs build up a resistance to the drugs over time. But new research suggests the drugs aren’t the only cause of antibiotic resistance. In fact, it’s possible your own body might be part of the problem.

This is an interesting piece of science. In the study, researchers showed a key mechanism of how bacteria, when present in your blood, can become antibiotic resistant simply due to conditions in your circulation.

The scientists built a device that moves fluid with similar flow and turbulence to your bloodstream. When they added a common human bloodstream pathogen to the fluid (the bacteria), it formed tiny clumps (aggregates) of 10-20 organisms. And it did so in just two hours. This is about the same time it takes for infection to show in human blood. These clumps formed with the help of sticky carbohydrates that are normally present in blood. The clumping made the bacteria antibiotic resistant.

Bacteria enter your body through cuts, trauma, and even when you brush your teeth. A normal immune system will quickly dispatch the invaders. But if your immune system is weak, under stress, exposed to an indwelling IV line, etc, it might not be able to get the jump on the bugs. That’s when they quickly cooperate to become drug resistant.

So what can you do about these bugs? You have to know where your closest oxidative physician is. You can find one at www.acam.org. Oxidation can trump clumping and beat these bugs. Infections are no different now than 60 years ago when doctors were routinely curing patients with a few sessions of ultraviolet blood irradiation (UBI) therapy.

Your government and organized medicine drove these incredible therapies almost to extinction on behalf of Big Pharma. Oxidation therapies include intravenous hydrogen peroxide, ozone therapy, UBI, and IV vitamin C. If you come down with an infection, these will work far better than antibiotics – and without the side effects that antibiotics can cause.

Yours for better health and medical freedom,
