Dr Robin Willcourt MD
Dr Robin Willcourt has both Australian and American qualifications. He is a Registered Specialist in Obstetrics and Gynecology in Australia and the United States as well as a Member of The American College of Sports Medicine, among other organizations.
He has an extensive list of professional publications and has been a guest lecturer worldwide. He has many awards, the first of which was winning the first Australian Royal Australian College of General Practitioners Prize in Medicine in 1971. He 'cracked' the code on the relationship between normal and abnormal fetal heart rate patterns and fetal oxygen levels which led to less errors in interpretation and less unnecessary Cesarean sections.
The physiology of pregnancy and its complications meant that there needed to be an understanding of both men's and women's roles in that process and this ultimately provided the basis for his practice in anti-aging medicine. The normal hormonal changes in women and men in pregnancy, aging and infertility as well as fetal physiology culminated in a unique understanding of the changes that occur in humans as the decades go by.
He has worked extensively with the newest 'kid on the block': 'Peptides' -for over three years, with more than 2,000 patients' data on pre- and post- peptide therapy. This makes him one of the leading experts in the world on the clinical use of peptides.
2015 - The Brave New World of Peptides
Peptides are part of a new group of therapies that modulate biological pathways involving inflammation, healing and tissue regeneration.
These substances can regenerate new tissue, modify inflammation –and give massive orgasms! Hardly inconsequential. Their roles are very diverse– they use natural biochemical responses to achieve their effects which puts them in stark contrast to most drugs which act as wrenches thrown into the machinery. Enhancing a normal process is very different from blocking a biological pathway because that often affects other physiological responses negatively, resulting in adverse reactions or side-effects that are detrimental.
While far from being panaceas, peptide therapies can help the body to augment positive natural physiologic responses with minimal adverse effects.
