Promoting Longevity and Preventing Aging Diseases  – Bernd Friedlander (April 2019)

“Promoting Longevity and Preventing Aging Diseases” is the presentation given by Bernd Friedlander, DC at the April 18 , 2019 meeting of the Silicon Valley Health Institute in Palo Alto, CA.

Dr. Bernd Friedlander will discuss treatments he has used on his patients in the span of his 35+ years career. His approach includes a Rife machine which he studied in detail and modified which resulted in PEMF approaches. Other modalities in healing he will discuss are collagen and specific amino acids supplementation.

With a degree in physical education and exercise physiology from San Francisco State University, Dr. Bernd Friedlander made it his mission to learn how athletes could improve performance at an optimum level while reducing their chances of injury. Dr. Friedlander began his career as a physical therapist and later attended the Los Angeles Collage of Chiropractic in l977. While attending LACC he was introduced to a professional wrestler whose influence was instrumental in setting Dr. Friedlander on a course of health, nutrition and wellness. All of which has led him on a course in studying and developing nutritional and dietary supplementation.

With the 1984 Summer Olympics at hand, Dr. Friedlander was approached by some of the UCLA coaches, U.S. Olympic Teams and other interested athletes from numerous colleges, to help prepare them for the upcoming games.

Dr. Friedlander was able to train these athletes and coaches on the necessity of good nutrition, stretching and flexibility and had the opportunity to work with elite athletes and their coaches such as Evelyn Ashford (one of the fastest women in the world), Pat Connelly, Carl Lewis, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Bob Kersee, Florence Griffith-Joyner, John Smith, Bob Seagren, Wilt Chamberlain and Bob Bush to name a few.

Since Dr. Friedlander was averse to the use of steroids, he began using a program of vitamin and mineral supplements and a combination of amino acids such as arginine, ornithine, and lysine. It was at this time he met Robert Atkins of the famed Atkins Diet. As Dr. Friedlander’s reputation grew he began working with more high performing athletes and placed them on the Atkins diet, as well as a proper exercise program and supplements. Due to this regimen he saw fewer injuries, faster repair time, and overall improved athletic ability.

Dr. Friedlander began seeing improvement with his patience suffering from knee damage, cartilage damage, and hip degeneration after putting them on his collagen program. It was because of these results that Dr. Friedlander began to realize the importance of collagen in athletic performance and how collagen is the “perfect nutrient.” Athletes are using massive amounts of weights in their workouts whereby compressing their bones and damaging their cartilage, ligaments and tendons. Collagen can help repair these kind of injuries.
