About the Author

Dr. Gitterle is a practicing M.D. with more than 20 years experience treating patients in a hospital-based setting. Over the past 15 years, he has developed unique protocols utilizing completely natural methods, to produce extraordinary results for those with health challenges, and for healthy individuals seeking to maintain peak wellness. 
One of the first earliest physicians in the U.S. to recognize the validity of Anti-Aging Medicine, he has been sought after as a consultant, health coach, teacher, and speaker to diverse groups. An expert on the importance of multi-system synergy in Anti-Aging and Wellness, Dr. Gitterle has created protocols which go well beyond traditional western medicine, delivering on the promise of the latest cellular and Integrative Medicine research. 
"Dr. Gitterle is a fountain of knowledge, wisdom, compassion and encouragement. His dedication and commitment to providing the latest in scientific research into anti-aging have given me extraordinary health, vigor and power. I recommend his book and his coaching completely." 
- Brad Armstrong, attorney, author and playwright
"I'm so grateful that Dr. Marc Gitterle has written this brilliant book. It's packed with affordable ways to take care of your health so you can live longer, happier and healthier. Some of his secrets and insights are breathtakingly simple, yet backed by science. All of the tips are doable by anyone who can read this book. You don't need anything else, either. Far too many health books are teases to get you to buy into some expensive program or auto-ship of supplements. Not this book. Everything you need is right here." 
- Dr. Joe Vitale, Author of Zero Limits

At the risk of sounding overly dramatic and cliche, this book has literally given me my life back.

I originally bought this book to read for a paper I was writing on current antiaging practices, and I found the information so intriguing that rather than simply write about Dr. Gitterle's ideas, I implemented them.

For 14 years, I struggled with many chronic issues of fatigue, exhaustion, poor memory, brain fog, inadequate/disturbed sleep, weight gain -- just to name a few issues. I went to one MD after another and had many lab tests performed, yet I was always told that I was "normal" and that there was nothing wrong with me. My body, however, was telling me differently.

I began studying holistic health and was able to make many improvements in my health. I felt better, but I wasn't quite back to "normal" for me. After a life-threatening emergency, I was diagnosed with stress-induced Type 2 diabetes and have been working diligently to reverse this diagnosis. So, when I came upon Dr. Gitterle's book, having so many health issues to deal with, I thought this approach of working with the body's physiological systems to rejuvenate myself at the cellular level was just what I needed to put me over the top. And, boy, was I right!

I have been following his program for a year now, and I can honestly say that I now have the energy I had when I was in my early 30s (and that was twenty years ago!). Even better is the fact that I am now pre-diabetic instead of diabetic, and I am sure that as I continue with Dr. Gitterle's program, I can reverse the diabetes entirely.

I can't thank Dr. Gitterle enough for sharing his knowledge.

After getting a bad ankle wound (that refused to heal) from an accident with my bicycle, I was referred by my PCP to the "Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center" where Dr. Gitterle was the attending physician. Before he came into the examining room, his staff told me about the book he had written. He has made a study of nutrition at the cellular level and its affects on the human body, for his personal benefit and for the benefit of his patients. (He is a specialist in emergency medicine and wound care.)

When I asked him about the book he told me that my wound having not healed properly to that point was due at least in part to my diet. He had treated many patients with chronic wounds that changed their diet to help their wound heal and had stayed with it because it had helped in other ways. He said that his book describes the diet he recommends. In many ways it is similar to the Paleo or the Primal or even to the old Adkins diet, but permits a limited use of some dairy products provided there are no allergies. He calls it the Synergy Matrix diet.

We bought the book and both my wife and I started the diet. We have been on it about a month. Neither of us really needed to lose weight, she has not lost any, and feels great! I have lost over 10 pounds. More important to me, I have lost a lot of strength during my weight workouts even after supplementing my diet with extra protein (whey and hemp.) I have to get used to eating additional fat which along with very low carbohydrates is central to this diet. I'm hoping that in time I will regain my strength. In the meantime I am looking a bit slimmer!

I turned 50 last year, and since then have started a journey I have called Steve 2.0. I started out with my general practitioner, just asking him to check a few things I had not checked before, like vitamin D. As it turned out, it was very low, and I had to add more vitamin D to my multi vitamin regimen. 6 months later, and it still wasn't high enough, so my dose was increased to 10,000 units/ day. While I don't work outside in my day job, I do push mow our lawn 2 times a week about 2 hours each time, but that amount of time was insufficient to increase my vitamin D. Anyhow, it was that experience, coupled with turning fifty, that made me begin to wonder what else may be sub-optimal, and the journey toward age management / anti aging began.

In my quest for understanding, I have come a long way, including meeting with an Endocrinologist and Urologist (who both only sub-optimized their recommendations by not considering the whole picture), and seeing a wonderful specialist who conducted an Executive Evaluation (5-6 hour meeting with the doctor with detailed testing, blood work and more). I am now followng the recommendations that came out of that. However, I have continued to research this field in my quest for knowledge on how to best mitigate the risks of growing old while getting older (while my father, an Army vet, reminds me "it's hell to get old", to which I reply "it's better than the alternative!"). I have joined the Life Extension Foundation, bought and read numerous books, watched a number of seminars on YouTube and listened to numerous podcasts and audiobooks while I mow or drive.

Out of all that I have done thus far, the best, most simplistic yet integrated approach I've seen thus far is that by Dr. Gitterle.
