We are as young (or old) as our cytoplasm. The quality of our structured water intracellular gel determines the health and function of our mitochondria, cell, and entire body and brain in profound ways.
Our medical science establishment has been focused on the nucleus and the DNA within with failed results for chronic diseases like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, …
The past 20 years of research into Epigenetics has shown us that the influence of the cell nucleus and DNA is quite limited in chronic disease – 10 -20%. The environmental influences that affect the cell are 80 -90%.
We are now learning that the cell cytoplasm (intracellular structured water/gel) that surround the nucleus that houses our mitochondria and cytoskeleton (microtubules, actin, vinculin) is a profound reflection of environmental influences on cell health.
How can we affect this?
Our thoughts, feelings, and relationships
Our time in nature
grounding in nature
Sunlight, NIR sauna
Movement – an active lifestyle
Exercise, NOW-T, HIIT
Structured water, low deuterium water
PWT, Ultrasound, Pulsed Magnetic Field therapy
Supplements: Drainage Detox Homeopathic, L-glutamine, Ashwaghanda, ALA Max CR, Resveratrol, NAD+Gold, ATP Ignite, Nitric Balance, CoQ Max Ubiquinol,
Adversely affected by harmful, synthetic EMF – eg. 5G, microwaves
FEAR, Worry, ANXIETY, Depression, self-hatred are profoundly harmful
Inflammation is controlled by our Immune System (which is controlled by our brain)
80% of our Immune System is located around our digestive tract (gut)
Our lifestyle is either activating the “ON” switch of inflammation or activating the balanced On/Off regulation of Wellness
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) aka photo biomodulation is a powerful tool to turn off excessive inflammation and the lasers we use at Renovare are FDA level 1a cleared (the most stringent research-based approval available) to reduce nociceptive chronic pain ANYWHERE in the body.
The resolution of inflammation is fibrosis (scar tissue) that creates joint and fascial restriction and chronic pain. These tissues need to glide and slide to close the pain gate and keep us flexible and pain-free.
Resolution of inflammation in the lung (from asthma, infection, pneumonia, COVID, COVID vaccines) is fibrosis leading to scarring and lung damage.
Spinal adjusting/manipulation of joints and soft tissue is required to improve the mechanical integrity lost from fibrosis to create the neuro sequence closing the pain gate & restoring healing and health.
The PgE2 (Prostaglandin E2) Inflammation Pathway involves:
Eicosanoids – inflammatory prostaglandins: our Omega 3/6 ratio controls this signaling pathway to a large extent
The same cascade that creates inflammation creates cancer
Too much Omega 6 high linoleic vegetable oil drives inflammation – the wrong fats may be even worse than too much sugar
Quality Omega 3 EPA-DHA Fish oil dampens inflammation
Low level lasers dampen inflammation with NO SIDE EFFECTS, only side benefits like:
Systemic Energy Boost – Give Your Cells Back the Energy of Your Youth!
Reduced Swelling & Inflammation and Pain Relief
Accelerated Tissue Regeneration
Activation of anti-aging/longevity pathways
Improved blood flow to promote accelerated healing & repair
Neurogenesis – making new nerve cells
Mitochondrial Biogenesis – making new mitochondria
Stem cell production and integration
Healing of Leaky Gut and Leaky Brain
Promote all antioxidant systems including glutathione
Protects from free-radical damage
Increased parasympathetic activity/Vagal stimulation for calm, peaceful, digestion, detox, and reduced inflammation
Repair and protect against DNA & RNA damage & telomere shortening
Decrease stress hormones and promote youth hormones like HGH
Healing with No Drugs, No Surgery, No Side-Effects
635 nm Red Lasers (LLLT) knocks out COX /prostaglandin, IL-18, & TNF Cytokine pain pathways. Violet lasers knock out IL-6 cytokine pain pathway.
Interleukin 6 (IL-6) is the most powerful Cytokine “ON” switch for inflammation and is converted in the liver to hsCRP, a key inflammation heart attack & stroke risk lab marker that appears on lab test panels.
405 nm Violet Laser knocks out the IL-6 Cytokine pathway especially well
635 nm Red Laser knock out IL-18
Both lasers turn on IL-10 – an ideal combination
VAT is an Inflammation Factory
Visceral (around the abdominal organs) Adipose (fat) Tissue is abbreviated as VAT. This is often called the “Fat that Kills” since it strongly elevates heart attack, stroke, cancer, diabetes, dementia, chronic pain, and chronic disease risk. VAT turns on inflammation dramatically.
VAT can be stubborn and resistant to most weight loss programs. What works is repairing our Metabolism to correct Insulin Resistance or Metabolic Syndrome
Based on our years of experience and training in functional medicine and functional neurology, we have created an Integrated Metabolism Repair program below:
Repair & Fat Burn Programs
Zerona FDA approved Fat burning laser sessions
30 min NOW-T and Power Plate session after Zerona session
Custom supplement, lifestyle, and support program to help you each step of the way in repairing your metabolism
The FDA approved Zerona Laser system energizes fat (adipose) cells to release their stored triglycerides (fat) into our circulatory system where they can be carried away to be burned as energy in our mitochondria.
An awesome quick and easy boost to fat loss in any area of the body

Many suffer with anxiety, depression, fatigue, Brain Fog, post-concussion brain injuries, or neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimers, Parkinson’s, and Multiple Sclerosis. Others suffer with attention deficit problems, hyperactivity, or autism symptoms.
Is there hope for improvements?
In our experience, the answer is usually “yes” as long as we work to “Solve the Puzzle” of why your brain is suffering.
The science of neuroplasticity tells us that our neurons (brain cells) can change (plasticity) more than we imagine. This means our brain can rewire even after a stroke or brain injury to take over the functions of the damaged areas in ways that can sometime seem miraculous. After years of abuse, neglect, and suffering, our brain has a remarkable ability to heal and change.
What does our brain need to rewire and heal?
Energy – we need our mitochondria to work really well to power the rewiring miracle of neuroplasticity. We have tools like healing lasers, frequency specific microcurrent, pulsed magnetic field therapy and a host of nutraceutical supplements to recharge our neurons and body.
Stimulation – we need activation of critical brain control centers – especially the parasympathetic controls centers located in our brain stem to dial back our stress response and turn on:
Healing and Repair
Calm and Peaceful
Digestion and Detox
Mitochondrial repair and regeneration
We use tools like unilateral spinal neurologic adjusting, Vagal stimulation therapies, and brain activation therapies.
Exercise – since neurons that fire together, wire together, we must use these new brain circuits we are creating or we lose them. Vagal stimulation exercises, Neuromodulation therapies, and sensory stimulation therapies can have especially powerful benefits.
In short, we need to “Solve the Puzzle” of why your brain is suffering to help create a “Happy Brain”
A consult or Foundation Visit is a great way to get started. Others who want learn even more about their brain start with a Brain Scan.

We have 5 TRILLION synapses in our brain – the most complex network in the known universe! Each synapse is a small gap at the end of a neuron (nerve cell) that allows a signal to pass from one neuron to the next.
With dementia, we lack the resources (energy, nutritents, ATP, stimulation) to support these synapses, so they begin to wither.
Below are examples of possible symptoms that can occurr if nerve synapses begin to wither. Everyone is different:
At 10% loss, we likely notice nothing – our brain compensates
Same at 20%
At 30%, perhaps we think it is just “aging” even if we are age 45
At 40%, more noticeable. We may develop chronic digestive problems and anxiety/depression and insomnia.
At 50% loss, we may be diagnosed with “Mild Cognitive Decline” which is really early dementia.
At 60% or speech and hearing decline, our automatic functions start to decline – perhaps high blood pressure, fatigue, and respiratory problems develop.At 70 or 80% loss, we don’t remember our family and friends.
At 70 or 80% loss – we don’t remember our family and friends
Beyond – organ systems start to shut down until we eventually die from our Neurodegenerative disease (not pneumonia, COVID, or other)
It is very Important to get a “Cognoscopy” (colonoscopy for the brain) to pick up problems early when they can more easily be helped.
Our microbiome, the trillions of microbes that live mostly in our gut, help determine whether we are sick or healthy, lean or obese, happy or anxious & depressed. Our microbiome, the bacteria, virus, and fungi that live in us, outnumber our human cells. Like a rainforest, when healthy and balanced, they help keep us healthy. When damaged by our ultra-processed toxic food, antibiotics, and oversterilization, our rainforest is devastated leaving a weed patch. This “mass extinction event” may help explain our epidemic levels of chronic diseases from food allergies to autism, from depression to diabetes, from anxiety to Alzheimer’s, cancer to heart disease.
Keeping our critical gut microbes off the “endangered species list” may be one of the most important factors in managing inflammation and supporting our gut, brain, and body Wellness.
Would you like to learn more? Our recent class on microbiome and gut health is available on our YouTube Channel for Renovare Brain Wellness.
Some steps to get started:
Eat more fiber.
Our ancestors ate over 100 grams per day
Average Americans eat just 15 grams per day starving our microbiome
Eat LOTS of veggies
Eat new and different veggies since diverse fiber is super important
A veggie smoothie is a great way to boost your fiber and diversity (see recipes below) note to Lisa: include the recipes from the class below
Reduce the processed food – the less our food has been “doctored”, the less we need a doctor. Eat less “dead food” from food coffins – cans, boxes, jars, & plastic.
Reduce the toxic chemicals that harm our microbiome:
Avoid drinking chlorinated or fluoridated water
Use only soap and water for hand washing – avoid the antibacterial soaps and cleaners that harm our microbiome
Avoid toxic home cleaners – use castile soap, vinegar, and essential oils instead.
Use only organic pest control
Supplement with Probiotics that work for you:
Especially consider the cutting edge spore-based probiotics like MegaSpore Biotic
Use fermented foods like live sauerkraut, pickles, kimchi etc. The live foods are always refrigerated. Bubbies is one brand to look for.
Supplement with Prebiotics:
These feed our microfloura like fertilizer feeds a healthy lawn
The newest precision prebiotic, Mega Prebiotic, selectively feeds the keystone bacteria that support microbiome health and diversity.
Supplement with Postbiotics when needed:
These critical short-chain fatty acids feed the microbiome
They also support great energy metabolism by signaling AMPK within our cells to switch from fat storing to fat burning.
Dementia is an epidemic in Arizona and America. Whether Alzheimer’s type dementia, vascular dementia, Parkinson’s Disease Dementia, Lewy Body dementia, mixed dementia or others, the result is the same. Loss of memory, declining mental function, loss of quality of life, and death. Neurodegenerative disease (most of which is Alzheimer’s or mixed type dementia) is the fastest growing cause of death in America. Dementia is the only major disease for which we have no effective drug treatment options.
Pfizer, a major American pharmaceutical giant, recently stated that they will be pulling out of Alzheimer’s treatment research. It has been 15 years since a new drug for Alzheimer’s was launched, reflecting one of the longest and most expensive losing streaks for Big Pharma. Now some in the industry are starting to question how long that commitment can last, after Pfizer announced it was pulling out of neuroscience research. Its decision means the race to find the first medicine to slow or halt Alzheimer’s type dementia must now proceed without one of the biggest forces in drug development.
John LaMattina, a former head of research and development at Pfizer, interprets the decision as a portent of things to come, and predicts other large drug makers will eventually follow suit.
What if the Solution was Not a Drug?
The FINGER study in Finland (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25771249) showed remarkable improvements in the high-risk older group studied through Lifestyle Change. Dr. Dale Bredesen, neuroscience researcher and former professor of medicine at UCLA wrote the ground-breaking book, “The End of Alzheimer’s” documenting the 30 years of research in his lab and others showing that Alzheimer’s type dementia is really many diseases. The research shows at least 36 documented root causes of the neurodegenerative disease process. We don’t “get” Alzheimer’s type dementia like we get the flu. We develop it over many years – usually decades – as a result of our lifestyle failing to fit our unique genetic and epigenetic needs.
It’s not just genetic. That’s right. Our genes do NOT determine our health. They influence our health. It is the interaction of our lifestyle choices, our environment, and our genes known as epigenetics that determines which genes turn on and which stay turned off. For the majority of human diseases, our lifestyle choices far outweigh our genes in determining our health and wellness. This is Great News!
Discover Magazine did an excellent summary article in December 2018 issue entitled: “Alzheimer’s Under Attack – Armed with big data, researchers turn to customized lifestyle changes to fight the disease”. Dr. Leroy Hood, biomedical pioneer & chief science officer for one of our nation’s largest non-profit health care systems, says, “Alzheimer’s is a really complex disease that has been utterly intractable.” He goes on to say, “Taking a systems approach reflects my own conviction that these complex diseases almost never respond to a single drug.”
It takes a systems approach process to solve the multiple pieces of the puzzle behind each person with dementia. More importantly, we need to solve the unique puzzle of each sufferer of brain decline since we are each different. This is not a “one size fits all” approach since, in my experience, there is no one size that fits all. Often medical research studies look for what single factor (usually a drug) creates a benefit in a large study group creating statistical significance for the study group – not individuals. This model fails to address the fact that each of us is unique with a dozen or more “root causes” behind our brain degeneration and dementia. This current double-blind placebo-controlled research model is ill-suited to complex, chronic neurodegenerative diseases like dementia. These complex diseases have multiple lifestyle-related causes different for each individual and multiple interventions are needed for synergistic therapeutic benefits. Medical studies typically study just one drug or intervention at a time which is just not enough to shift the direction of an unusually difficult, complex disease process like dementia.
Dr, Timothy C. Gerhart, D.C., DABCI, Dip. Ac., BCN is the author of 4 books on lifestyle approaches to brain and body Wellness and practices in Peoria, Arizona. His most recent book, “Living Free of Dementia – Solving the Puzzle to Prevent and Reverse Cognitive Decline” is scheduled for release in March 2019.
His other books are: “7 Secrets to Wellness, Change Your Brain, Transform Your Life, & Why Am I Not Right Since My Concussion”. Dr. Gerhart understands that the word “doctor” means “teacher” and is available to present to groups to teach the approaches he uses to prevent and reverse cognitive decline.
