Hi! I'm Doc Mac.

I have practiced hormone, weight, health, and mind optimization for over forty-three years. As we age and or become chronically inflamed, our hormones become disrupted, making us feel out of sync, overweight, sickly, and negative. Our internal chemistry, our hormones, governs the way we feel and look. Subscribe to my weekly newsletter on how to optimize our lives by optimizing our hormones.

THE PAUSE "MAKING OUR THIRD ACTS THE BEST YET" SWEETENERS: WHAT TO USE AND WHAT NOT TO USE In the first strand of The HOPE Protocol, we optimize our hormones. In the second strand, we optimize our weight. In the third strand, The Purification Strand, we optimize health. In the fourth strand, we optimize our minds. We begin optimizing our health by optimizing our livers. Nearly all overweight menopausal women and andropausal men have fatty livers. We must de-fat it if we want to dance at our...

THE PAUSE MAKING OUR "THIRD ACT" THE BEST YET FEAST MEALS “Doc, what I love about your program is that we can have days where I eat whatever we want. Are there rules associated with these days, and if so, what are they?” CELEBRATE! CELEBRATE! DANCE TO THE MUSIC! Life is supposed to be celebrated. I remember growing up and watching historic movies. The king had just won a battle or war, and they would have all the dignitaries in the castle for a feast. They would bring a cooked boar with an...

THE PAUSE MENOPAUSE, POPCORN, and ESTROGEN DOMINANCE “Doc, my P/E Ratio was 22. You told me that I was severely estrogen-dominant. Can you please explain to me what that means?” Great question! REVIEW OF ESTROGEN DOMINANCE Recall that I define menopause differently. The dictionary claims that menopause is not having a period for twelve months. As I hope you know, I think that’s a terrible definition. Why isn’t it three months or even eighteen months? Menopause and its possible adverse...

THE PAUSE MENOPAUSE, WEIGHT LOSS AND EXERCISE "THE SECRET TO YOUTH" "So, Doc, before I joined your program, I exercised five times a week to try to lose weight, and all I did was gain weight. Then I started on The HOPE Protocol, and you had me eat for my hormones; I began to lose weight like crazy, but you had me stop all strenuous exercise. After your last course, I understand that once paused, we lose our fat-burning hormones and can’t lose weight by exercising. Since you said nonstrenuous...

THE PAUSE EXERCISE, WEIGHT LOSS and BEING PAUSED "So, Doc, before I joined your program, I tried everything to lose weight, and nothing worked. Then I started on The HOPE Protocol, and you had me eat for my hormones; I started to lose weight like crazy, but you had me stop all strenuous exercise. Please explain why exercise is not allowed on The HOPE Protocol?” Of course! If you noticed, I didn’t say any exercise. I said strenuous exercise.

THE PAUSE BLOG MESO FRUIT “Hey Doc, I’ve got the Meso-Menu down: two thumbs of GodMade fats, a palm-sized (women) to a hand-sized (men) serving of clean animal protein, and a large handful of high-fiber, low-glycemic vegetables. So, when can we add fruit to the menu, and are certain fruits better than others?” YES & YES! INTRODUCTION SUMMARY For those who don’t have time to read the entire course.

HORMONE OPTIMIZATION HORMONE OPTIMIZATION STRAND MAGNESIUM "So, Doc, I get it; I must get my progesterone and estradiol hormones dancing again to feel good. I understand that the first condition women and men are afflicted with once they enter their pauses is estrogen dominance. The key to taming estrogen dominance is to balance progesterone and estradiol in a paused woman and to balance testosterone and estradiol in a paused man. Is there a supplement that will help us tame estrogen...

I also need to lose my excess weight by manipulating the hormones insulin and glucagon to look good. You've also taught me that I will achieve my energy and weight goals in far less time if I optimize my liver. But, Doc, is there anything else I can do to make reaching my health goals easier?" Yes, there is! You’ve probably...
