Announcement: Welcome to DrBloem.com!

Dear Visitor,

Thank you for visiting my website. I am Dr. Fred Bloem from Olney, Maryland, and I have a holistic and integrative medical practice.

Fred Bloem, MD

Fred Bloem, MD

Because my medical practice is unique, I attract patients from many states in the northeastern and midatlantic regions of the United States and some have come from more remote locations.

Many people found me because they have been referred by existing patients. Others have found me by searching the Internet. Many of these have suffered health problems for a long time, consulted with a lot of other physicians, and were not able to find or receive the care that they needed.

Other people are simply looking for a good personal physician for themselves or for their family. These are they who need more than a rushed 15-minutes-or-less face time with a physician in a crowded medical office. They recognize that over the years the mechanic spent more time with their cars than their doctors did with them..

Because of my background in internal medicine and family medicine,  I am comfortable treating both children and adult men and women with a wide variety of health concerns.

After practicing as a traditional allopathic physician for several years, it became clear to me that Western medicine as it is being taught and practiced by most physicians today has its limitations. One of the main concerns that I had was that many of the allopathic treatments do not address the underlying causes of a patient’s illness. I recognized that many common diseases, such as hypertension, diabetes, arthritis, and others were linked to obesity. However, like most physicians, I felt unprepared to help my patients lose weight.

Postgraduate training in bariatric medicine, bio-identical hormone therapies, orthomolecular medicine, and energy medicine (NeuroModulation Technique (NMT) and Emotional Freedom Technique), has made it possible for me to help my patients more effectively, more quickly, and with safer treatment methods.

Besides that, I am now able to help my patients with a much wider variety of health concerns. They include:

  • All allergies
  • All autoimmune diseases
  • Addictions
  • Acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions.
  • Autism
  • Crohn’s disease, irritable syndrome
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Emotional, psychological, and sensory/motor neurological disturbances
  • Hypertension
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Infectious diseases
  • Obesity

It is the combination of my genuine concern for my patients’ well-being and attention to detail, my traditional medical training, my experience in helping patients with their weight problems, safe nutritional, natural, and energetic treatments that makes my practice unique.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

HCG Diet

MY WEIGHT LOSS STORY

How the Dr. Simeons HCG Protocol has helped me and my patients lose large amounts of abnormal fat.

My quest to help my patients lose weight dates back to 2001. Although I knew that there was a clear association between obesity and the many chronic illnesses that family physicians see in their practices, I did not know how to address the underlying causes. I had come to recognize that eating less and exercising more was not the complete solution to the problem of obesity. Finding the answers was not easy. It has been a long road with many disappointments, but in 2007 I was fortunate to discover a time-tested, safe, and effective protocol which had been developed by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, a British physician who practiced in Rome, Italy, from the 1950s through the early 1970s.

Dr. Simeons detailed his protocol, which combines the use of human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) and a specific low-calorie diet in his book entitled “Pounds and Inches”. Dr. Simeons found that HCG maximizes the functional capacity of all the centers in the hypothalamus, including what he termed the fat center, making it possible for fat to be released from abnormal fat deposits and to become available as a source of fuel to the body.

This is the first time in my career that I have seen large numbers of patients succeed in losing significant amounts of abnormal fat quickly without hunger and without adverse side effects.

I was so impressed and intrigued with my patients’ results and the safety of this protocol that I decided to start it too. Although I have never been grossly obese, I knew that I had excessive amounts of abnormal fat. In addition, I wanted to know for myself that this protocol was practical, safe, and effective. Finally, I recognized that the best way to learn and teach this protocol is for a physician to have a personal experience.

I started in April 2008 weighing 163 lbs and was impressed that I was able to drastically reduce my caloric intake without any hunger and without any side effects. I noticed that I quickly lost any desire and cravings for junk food such as potato chips. I experienced rapid weight loss manifesting as a significant reduction in the measurements of my waist and thighs. Within 2 months, by the end of May 2008, I had lost almost 20 lbs of abnormal fat. I was able to lose all this weight without engaging in any strenuous exercise activities.

As of the time of this writing, late July 2008, I am in the long-term maintenance phase of this protocol. I weigh 143 lbs and have been able to maintain my weight without any hardship and without restricting the amounts of food that I eat.

I invite you to learn more about the HCG Protocol by reading Pounds and Inches first. You can download it by clicking here. After reading this book you will be able to appreciate and understand the significance and importance of Dr. Simeons’s groundbreaking research that went into developing this highly effective protocol.

I offer to my patients both oral HCG and injectable HCG protocols as well as HCG Cream and Nasal HCG. Physicians around the world have successfully treated both men and women as young as 8 to 12 years of age.

How to Make Sense Out of the Vaccine Controversy

While some people accept their physician’s vaccine recommendations without any question, there are others who want to do their own research with regard to the science, the benefits, and any adverse reactions. Because so many health care professionals, individuals, and organizations express strong opinions which are often at odds with each other, I have compiled some resources that can help someone make a more informed decision.

The assertion that you cannot go to school without shots is not true. Simply sign the vaccine exemption form on the back of the school shot record.

As you review these resources, I encourage you to question everything, including the integrity of the vaccine industry, the vaccine ingredients, and why some vaccines contain cells from intentionally aborted human fetuses.

Prolozone Therapy for Sciatica

I am a 68 year old man who is still very active, but have had increasing sciatic pain in my right hip when I sat for too long at a time, either driving or at my computer. I’ve also had pain in my left knee from a slow-healing injury. Over a month ago as I write this, Dr. Bloem gave me one Prolozone injection in each of those two sites. The pain in my knee was reduced significantly within a day and is now gone, and I could immediately sit for MUCH longer periods of time without my hip hurting at all–a great relief since I am about to leave on a three month driving trip. Prolozone has proven to be every bit as helpful to me as it has to so many others I had read about.

Distilled Water Benefits

Over the years I purchased a lot of different water purification products. Most of them were water filters and one was a reverse osmosis product. None of these were perfect as some impurities and toxins just can’t be filtered out. Probably like most people I didn’t change the filters frequently enough because they were expensive or difficult to replace. After I purchased my ozone steam sauna which requires the use of distilled water I decided to purchase a water distiller. They are surprisingly affordable (under $200) for a unit that can distill up to a gallon at a time. The maintenance is pretty simple and inexpensive too.

I have been very happy with my distiller. It is quite amazing to see the brown/white residue that remains in the stainless steel water container after the distillation process is complete; especially when you consider that I distill water that has been prefiltered by my under the counter kitchen filter. Who knows what is in that residue? It could be anything, including waterborne contaminants such as viruses, bacteria, organic and inorganic chemicals, fluoride, fecal matter, pharmaceuticals, heavy metals such as lead, arsenic, and cadmium, cysts, and other contaminants that are dumped in our water supply. Chlorine and other gases are expelled from the waste vent as the water is distilled.

Contrary to what some people say I don’t believe that drinking distilled water is harmful. It is the purest water that you can drink. It was interesting to read a customer review which stated that heart arrhythmias disappeared when the person started drinking distilled water. I have started recommending distilled water to my patients and it will be interesting to see what they will report as they avoid the contaminants in their drinking water.

TA-65 – A Telomerase Activator

I was recently introduced to TA-65® which is a telomerase activator. It turns on the hTERT gene which activates the enzyme telomerase which can lengthen your telomeres. Telomeres are protective pieces of DNA material at the ends of each chromosome in every cell. The genetic material of chromosomes degrades if not properly protected by telomeres of a certain length. Telomerase activation in aged or chronically stressed normal cells has been shown to slow or reverse telomere shortening, increase replicative capacity, and restore or improve cellular function. In other words, the cells live longer and the patient benefits.

When telomerase is activated the shortest ones get “relongated” (made longer). Some illness associated with short telomere length are Werner’s Syndrome, congestive heart failure, ischemic cardiomyopathy, and Alzheimer’s disease.

In people who have taken TA-65® for one year or more they have seen the following statistically significant benefits:

  • A decline in the number of senescent (aging) CD-8 lymphocytes
  • A reversal of the normally seen, age dependent increase in natural killer cells
  • Improvements in total and LDL cholesterol
  • Significant decreases in fasting glucose and fasting insulin levels
  • Functional improvements in cognitive behavior-verbal memory and shifting attention
  • Statistically significant improvements in bone mineral density in males and a trend towards the same in females

Some anecdotal benefits that people taking TA-65® have reported include:

  • Need for less sleep but without fatigue – getting more done in a day
  • Improved joint flexibility
  • Improved skin health and appearance
  • Improved visual acuity
  • Improved sex drive

Those who should take TA-65® include anyone who has had a telomere length test and has short telomeres, anyone who believes their immune system is compromised and can benefit from its restoration, and everyone who is concerned about aging healthy and living longer.

I have just become a licensed distributor of TA-65® and am able to offer it to my patients at a good price. Please contact my office for pricing and ordering.

Prolozone Therapy for Chronic Knee Pain

“I am a 64 year old man with a long history of arthritis in my knees.  It was very painful to walk and especially painful when I tried to get up out of a chair.  Dr. Bloem did one prolozone treatment to each knee and I have had complete relief of the pain.  I have now been pain free for over a week with no signs of the pain returning.  I can’t believe how easy it is to stand now.  Thank you Dr. Bloem!!”

This patient wrote this testimonial in July 2012, over two months ago as of the time of this writing, and he has remained pain free to this day. Prolozone therapy has been a very valuable addition to my practice. Since May 2012 I have successfully treated patients and have done Prolozone injections in knees, hips, shoulders, and in the neck. However, Prolozone can also be effective for back pain, sciatica, TMJ syndrome, rotator cuff injuries, elbow pain, plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, neuromas, carpal tunnel syndrome, and many different sports injuries.

Prolozone treatments may result in cartilage regeneration which explains why it is usually remarkably effective when patients have osteoarthritis of the hip or knee. In many cases it is not just a treatment for pain, but it is actually results in long-term relief.

The word Prolozone was coined by Dr. Frank Shallenberger. The first part means to regenerate or rebuild (“proli”). Ozone is the most active form of oxygen which causes damaged tissues, joints, ligaments, and tendons to regenerate.

Oxygen, vitamins, and minerals are necessary to tissues to regenerate and heal. Pain is often caused by low levels of oxygen which cause an accumulation of lactic acid, which causes pain. Prolozone injections include homeopathic anti-inflammatory medications that reduce inflammation and swelling. Vitamins and minerals are injected because they are required for healing. Oxygen in the form of ozone is injected last. Only one injection is  given in each joint treated and all the medication, nutritionals, and ozone is delivered in two syringes through the same needle. The treatment response varies with some patients experiencing complete pain relief in one treatment, but most patients only need 3 to 5 treatments spaced two weeks apart.

Ozone Steam Sauna Benefits

After having become certified in ozone therapy and Prolozone therapy in May 2012 and seeing the wonderful results of major autohemotherapy and Prolozone I decided to also offer ozone steam sauna therapy to my patients.

Ozone therapy is not new and over the years there have been amazing reports from both doctors and patients. For example, there have been patients who reported cures from Lyme disease after receiving major autohemotherapy. According to Dr. Frank Shallenberger, a world renowned authority in this field whose course I attended in May 2012, major autohemotherapy is a slam dunk for patients with Lyme disease. He has also had much success treating patients with other chronic infectious diseases such as HIV and hepatitis. With regard to ozone steam sauna therapy there have been reports of people being cured of cancer using this method.

Ozone steam saunas have also been beneficial for patients with skin disorders such as shingles. One patient reported a dramatic improvement after just one session and complete resolution after several more sessions. Patients with eczema and psoriasis see rapid improvements too and symptoms are typically much improved within about three sessions.

Ozone steam saunas have also been effective for patients with a diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome and myalgic encephalomyelitis. Many patients have reported an improvement in their energy and overal sense of well-being within 4 to 8 weeks of starting weekly treatment sessions. Some reported cures whereas others did experience significant improvement.

As patients sit in the sauna they sweat profusely and are able to eliminate toxins. So any health concerns caused by toxicity is likely to respond. This includes silicon poisoning from breast implants and poisoning from other chemical exposures. The temperature of the sauna can be regulated precisely so it is comfortable for the patient. Usually we start with a temperature of 105 degrees Fahrenheit or less for a 15 minute session and then increase the temperature in subsequent sessions as tolerated and the duration up to 30 minutes.
Other health conditions that have improved in patients using ozone sauna also include arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and depression. With regard to depression it is believed that detoxification causes the brain to function better and that improved oxygenation causes the mood and overal mental functioning to improve.The advantage of the hyperthermia that is achieved by using an ozone sauna is that toxins are broken down and released, that the immune system works better, and that the growth of microorganisms is slowed down. In addition, the thermal effect causes blood vessels and capillaries within the deep layers of the tissues to dilate, which promotes better circulation.

Cyanocobalamin vs. Methylcobalamin vs. Hydroxocobalamin

In my practice I use different forms of Vitamin B12. In this article I explain some of the differences between cyanocobalamin, methylcobalamin, and hydroxocobalamin.

Cyanocobalamin can be given as an intramuscular injection. It should not be given intravenously. However, after injection it will need to convert to methylcobalamin, and then to hydroxocobalamin to be used by the body. Of all the forms of Vitamin B12 it is the least painful for the patient to inject. After introduction into the body it provides a small amount of cyanide. For individuals who are overall very healthy this is a good choice and this is also the least expensive form of injectable Vitamin B12. It is known that some people, such as smokers, are less able to transform cyanocobalamin into methylcobalamin due to toxins and heavy metals in the liver. These individuals need to use other forms of Vitamin B12.

Methylcobalamin is more bioactive and can be given intramuscularly, intravenously, and intraarticularly. It is slightly painful to inject into the muscle. In my practice I also use methylcobalamin when I do Prolozone injections into joints and into subcutaneously (under the skin). This is also a better choice for smokers who are unable to convert cyanocobalamin into methylcobalamin.

Hydroxocobalamin is the most bioactive form of Vitamin B12 and mostly given intravenously as intramuscular injections are very painful. If given intramuscularly it is mixed the local anesthetic procaine. Hydroxocobalamin is retained longer in the body and can be dosed less frequently. An additional application of hydroxocobalamin is that it can be used for patients with cyanide poisoning as it binds cyanide and allows for elimination through the kidneys.
