Dana Flavin MD MS BS
Founding Member of ICRM
of Stockholm, Sweden
Born in Chicago as the youngest child of Dr. and Mrs. Byron Flavin. Both parents studied Medicine and their excellent example of compassion and devotion to duty made a lasting impression on Dr. Flavin's life. Her continuous education in Science and Medicine has helped her to find and improve therapies for many diseases including Cancer, Autoimmune diseases such as Graves thyroiditis, rheumatoid arthritis and viral diseases. She received her first degree in Psychology and Chemistry from Loyola University in 1972 and then began graduate school in Pharmacology at Chicago Medical School. After 4 years and part I of her Medical Boards, she was appointed Science Assistant to the Associate Bureau Director for Toxicology at the Food and Drug Administration in Washington D.C.
During this time she researched the Molecular Biology of Cancer and Tumor Promotion investigating the application of Translational Medicine into potential therapies for cancer. She then was appointed Science Advisor to the President of the Nutrition Foundation and began graduate studies at Howard University in Nutrient Biochemistry under the Department of Nutrition. Several years later with summa cum Laude in Nutrition she moved to Germany and began her studies in Medicine for completion of her M.D. degree in Innsbruck, Austria, including years devoted to research.
Dr. Flavin was exposed to the traumas of illness early in her life when her father suffered a stoke leaving him partially paralyzed and without sufficient health insurance. She was 15 at the time. One year later, she herself suffered Epileptic seizures following a mild brain injury. She lost part of her vocabulary and alphabet recognition. The illness was treated with heavy medication for several years until it was found to be completely cured. In spite of all this she had straight A's in Biology in High School. At age 20, she was admitted into the hospital for a breast tumor. She was told they may have to perform a radical mastectomy. It was removed and fortunately found to be benign but one of a type that could, over time, have become malignant. Nine months later, she broke her neck in an automobile accident, leaving her in a hospital bed for 6 months. She was in a stryker frame with screws in her skull to stabilize her and she was unable to move . During this time she took additional reading courses for her degree. She had a Plexiglas table made so she could read lying down, since she was unable to walk or sit up until the vertebrae were later fused with an operation and then 12 weeks in a body cast. She was greatly influenced by the suffering in the Neurology department around her in Mercy Hospital for those six months and aware of her good fortune to be able to walk out on her own without paralysis. She realized the brain cancer patients she had met would not go home. That many in a coma would not be able to lead normal lives and that those paralyzed would not walk.
This is what started her devotion to help patients with illnesses and to relieve suffering and find cures.
Dr. Flavin recently began the Foundation for Collaborative Medicine and Research in Greenwich Connecticut to teach colleagues and patients what she has learned from around the world in areas of medicine and of nutrition and nutrients in fighting diseases. She is also helping find and develop new cutting edge therapies from around the world for cancer, diabetes, and many other diseases. Her successes include developing a new therapy for Mononucleosis that cures children in 24 hours, Published in the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine, 2006, and a therapy for breast cancer patients that reverses brain metastases within 3 months, published in the Journal of Neuro-oncology, 2007. Recently she has reversed Non Hodgkin's lymphoma and medullary thyroid cancer using a new compound dichloroacetate, normally used for children with lactic acidosis. She is continuously searching for new therapies, both conventional and complementary, where there are limited treatments available. Presently she is researching out the increase in lactic acid and its changes in the cell in almost every disease, which is narrowing down diseases into systems, a discovery that has the potential to save millions of lives and reverse diseases.

Antiaging vs. Age Reversal: How Nutrients play a major role in both.
Dr. D.F. Flavin, B.S., M.S., Dr. med univ. Medical Director
For Centuries mankind has been looking for the fountain of youth as some magic potion, but in
reality the magic potion is in our hands today. There are specific foods that can prevent aging,
and nutrients as supplements that help along the way. Some of these will protect telomeres
from breaking down, others will prevent inflammation a danger for aging as well as cancer and
finally specific foods are shown to activate stem cells for regenerative properties to literally
make us younger. These nutrients are no longer a secret, we can indeed prevent and reverse
