    How to accurately find the treatment target hormone levels
    Treatment modalites – The diagnosis determines treatment options

    • Age related options
    • Testosterone boosting modalities – increasing testosterone production
    • Testosterone replacement options – nuts and bolts of effective and ineffective treatments
    • Pulse dosing regimens – reproducing the normal physiology of pulsatility
    • Treatment options for controlling excess estrogen, maintaining the balance with testosterone, avoiding the pitfalls
    Treating the SHBG problem – freeing up the testosterone
    • Prolactin treatment options
    Selegiline as an added treatment – anti-aging benefits for brain and health

    Dealing with the complexities of changing libido and function
    • Newer options to consider
    The prostate –
    • Evaluation and monitoring for cancer
    • Informed consent for hormone treatments
    BPH – treatments old and new
    • What to do for an elevated PSA in a patient requiring testosterone replacement
    • What to do if PSA is rising – panic is the wrong approach!
    • Prostatitis – a common problem
    • Treating the prostate cancer patient with testosterone replacement
    The critical role of Vitamin D as an anti-aging hormone – possibly the most important aging hormone
    • Background physiology
    • Importance of vitamin D to the commons aging diseases: cancer, heart disease, inflammatory diseases, bone loss and muscle maintenance, brain function and Alzheimer’s disease
    • Testing and replacement options
    Anti-cancer supplements –
    • Selenium, Folic acid and phyto-nutrients
    • Some comments about prostate cancer treatments available
    The seminar will be an interactive process with breaks for questions and panel discussion of issues or complex problems. Case histories of common problems will be presented. Physicians should be able to immediately use the information and treatments in their practices.

  2. Dr John
    please help with your estrogen management presentation.
    How can I put my hot hands on it?

  3. looks like some cool stuff to attend......can't afford it though (

  4. wonder if these seminars are ever taped or video condferenced?

    to watch a video conference at home and to be able to split the cost with a handfull of guys would be neat....this ever done?

    Doctor who attends Dr Shippens seminar will get not only training but also DVD.
    I would like to put my hands on that DVD.

    Dr John is working on some kind of a deal that we will be able to buy his presentation.
    What is the status on that?

    I would like to note that in this presentation that will happen in April 07, DIM and I3C are still togeter, so there must be a value in supplementing with I3C.

    I note that most DIM supplements contain I3C except for
    Zeligs, M.D
    Diindolylmethane DIM
    PhytoPharmica Indolplex with DIM
    that are missing the I3C.
    AFAIK Dr John have/had associacion with Dr Delgado and his

    Estroblock (60 ct) has 100mg DIM with I3C 50mg
    Dr John recomended 300mg DIM and some I3C here:

    ============================== ========
    Would love to see Dr John's current policy on estrogen and DHT management or his comming presentation in Orlando FL.
