Bioidentical hormones having the same molecular structure as the hormones produced naturally in your body, have proven to be a safer option and also have been shown to protect against some diseases, including those whose risk is increased by non-bioidentical hormones. This is an effective relief from symptoms caused by menopause, andropause, PMS, and hormone imbalances.

Weight alone is not a clear indication of good health because it does not distinguish how many pounds of fat, and how many pounds are lean body mass. By simply standing on the InBody footplates and holding the handgrips, you can regularly monitor your body fat, water weight, and muscular development. Thus, you can understand how your diet, lifestyle, and exercise regimen are affecting your body.


Dr. Brust is one of the rare breed of health care professionals with the characteristics needed to promote healthy living.


Dr Brust really introduced me to the concept of bioidentical hormones. She really helped me understand everything, and she makes me feel very comfortable. She stays on top of everything. Her approach is all natural and includes close monitoring.


Having been a patient of Dr. Brust for a number of years, I appreciate her extensive background in the naturopathic area of medicine and the way she ensures on-the-spot or on-going treatment is the right one for me.

Life is not merely living, but living in Health.

I recently saw a great Netflix documentary titled “Live to 100″ Life in the Blue Zones”. I feel the way those people live, totally embodies the Principles of Naturopathic and Preventative Medicine. The 6 zones or geographical regions in the world the author and researcher investigates, have a number of common threads.

Some are: Active lifestyle, healthy, daily, social, and personal engaging relationships, diet and nutrition based mostly of plant-based foods, a reason for living or “lkigai” (Japanese), and work, whether it be volunteer or otherwise. There was very little incidence of: heart disease, high blood pressure, dementia, cancer, and diabetes. A 90 plus year old physician was interviewed. Now, I’m not sure I will practice into my 90’s but it truly some thought about when I will “retire”. I encourage all to view this multi part series.

“Functional medicine”. What is it? When I was in medical school, everything we Naturopathic physicians were taught about treatment of disease was Functional medicine.

We, Naturopathic (and Chiropractic) physicians were the experts in functional medicine. Do no harm the motto. We look at the whole body. It is how we treat the cause of a disease once a diagnosis is made. How does it rebalance, harmonize, strengthen the body physically, mentally, emotionally, physiologically. How is digestion, the immune, the endocrine, the musculoskeletal, and the nervous system affected by our treatment plans. Now, it seems everywhere there is “functional medicine.” I don’t believe the principles of functional medicine today are practiced the same way we were taught by our mentors.

Stem cells and exosomes are exciting topics in medicine. The use of these and other biologics are being studied in regenerative, anti-aging, disease prevention and treatment. We here at Preventative Medicine Clinic are using biologics in degenerative joint disease primarily. Patients are reporting decrease in pain and increase in joint mobility.

Another Netflix documentary worth a look is “Haute Route”. As a prescriber of controlled substances, including testosterone (also known as a performance enhancing drug or PED) I found this film to be incredibly captivating. It follows an athlete’s journey through a non-doping and then doping protocol in preparation and execution of a world stage professional cycling race.

As I write this, it is raining out. The moisture is welcome from the dry and smoky summer months. The leaves are turning beautiful reds, yellows, and a hue of other colors. Some of us may feel a loss as summer ends, and fall, and then winter comes. There is a time for every season. Some of you may have had the loss of a loved one. My sister passed away this summer following years of care for post traumatic brain injury. Let us not forget no matter the season:

“Life is not merely living, but living in Health.”

In This Together

It sure had been a tumultuous last couple of years. First and foremost, I would like to thank each of you in supporting my business. I appreciate the patience you all showed as I ventured on alone. I am excited to announce that I have an assistant starting at the beginning of the new year. Most of us have found a rhythm again in our lives with our families, friends, and jobs. Travel is back as well as socializing and entertainment. The research will continue as to what countries (states) with what, and if any restrictions were and were not successful in achieving specific goals for their citizens. I am happy that the last restriction was lifted for travel to Canada as most of our family lives there.

A researcher found that the pandemic for people either slowed down time or sped it up. At first, I felt that time slowed as we were quarantined. People were out and about in the neighborhood with their dogs and kids. Pickle ball appeared on driveways. There were social distancing group gatherings in the park. Looking back, though it feels overall time went fast.

I would like to share some of my observations from the last two years.

1. For a lot of people the vaccines (1,2, with, or without boosters) did not appear to prevent them from getting Covid 19 or any of the variants.

2. There is controversy whether or not those who got vaccinated had less severe symptoms when they got an infection.

3. In my practice those patients who had lingering Covid symptoms and received MAH (ozone and light IV) recovers quickly.

4. In my practice patients who received regular MAH treatments had less infections overall.

5. In my practice patients who were diligent in maximizing their health and immune systems had less infections and recovered quicker.

6. I wrote medical exemptions for patients who were at risk with the vaccine.

Live is not merely living, but living in health, and I feel wellness, health optimization and prevention are key. Our lifestyle includes diet and nutrition, supplements, medications, jobs, exercise, meditation, prayer, relationships, friendships, relaxation and sleep are vitally important.

At the end of February 2020, I got Covid 19. Unfortunately, there were no tests available at the time to confirm the. During the last two and a half years I have had monthly MAH IV treatments. My exposure to any and all of the variants was continual. I feel that without a doubt, looking back, and with the experiences I have had with other patients who also did the MAH IV for Covid 19 and any variant related symptoms, l lost no clinic days because I did the IV treatment.

Now, we physicians and patients need to be aware and on the lookout for long Covid symptoms. Symptoms may be fatigue,

gastrointestinal, heart (Postural tachycardia) respiratory (eg. going cough), dermatological (skin rash), pain (joint, muscle, neurological) just to name a few.

If you have any questions regarding long covid symptoms and or the MAH IV treatment, and/or would like to schedule an MAH IV treatment please contact me.

The election results are not in yet as I write this letter. Practicing medicine has become more difficult in our community. Many of the doctors I have worked with over the years have left and are leaving. Please be patient as new referral patterns with specialists are established. I remain dedicated and committed on providing the best healthcare to each one of you. I am continually humbled by our many conversations and the personal experiences you share. As my practice is referral based, thank you for your continued support by your referrals of family and friends.

During this season of thanksgiving and reflections I am grateful for you all and I felt your understanding and support. A patient of mine makes jewelry and gifted me a necklace she called” in this together”. Yes, it is so true, we truly were in it together. May your holiday season be filled with Love, Joy, and Peace.

Warmest regards, Dr. Brust


This is an interesting time to say the least in the health and wellness of US citizens and people around the world. As the information is coming in across the world, you may have many questions and concerns for yourself, and your family and loved ones. From a preventative medicine point of view, there are really some very basic steps to follow as we as citizens OF THE WORLD work together to support each other in preventing ourselves from getting and or spreading this infection. Also, if we have it, or have had it, I feel it is still our individual responsibility to protect the weak and vulnerable.

Governments have placed restrictions of all kinds in many communities, and will continue to do so. We may face a domestic travel ban sooner than later.

This blog is about what we can do for ourselves and our families to maximize our health, and minimize our exposure now.

  1. Follow the SOCIAL DISTANCING guidelines.
  2. HYGIENE: Wash hands often and frequently and avoid touching mucous membranes; eyes, mouth, lips.
  3. If you have children wash their faces regularly with a clean soapy facecloth. Rinse the soap off fully.
  4. Support the IMMUNE system:
  5. STAY HYDRATED with Water
  6. AVOID SUGAR, Including alccohol, soda, etc.
  7. STOP SMOKING, and VAPING. These activities not only decrease the overall health of your body, they decrease specifically the immunity of the respiratory system
  8. Continue to EXERCISE in a healthy environment. Ride on a stationary bike at home, walk in your neighborhood. Use in home exercise equipment eg. treadmills,elliptial machines,, weights.
  9. MEDITATE, yoga, breathing exercises.
  10. SUPPLEMENTS: Vitamin C, Vitamin D3. I am a huge fan of echinacea, and elderberry .
  11. Eat a DIET high in fresh fruits and fresh, steamed, or roasted vegetables, organic whole grains, eggs, organic free range chicken, grass fed and finished meats, fish.
  12. Get quality SLEEP. Recommended minimum of 7 hours for adults. More for cildren and adolescents.
  13. I also recommend getting OUTSIDE daily. Here in Bend it is snowing, and the ski resort is closed. However, playing in the snow, walking in the neighborhhod is still very doable. If you live in a warmer climate, go for a walk, or bike ride daily.
  14. For those of you who are CLINIC patients, IV Ozone treatments are available preventatively. Please call to schedule an apointment.
  15. Show flexibility freely and willingly with a WARM HEART to each other as we navigate through these next everchanging days.

Like many of you, we too are greatly disappointed that as a family we have had to change our spring break travel plans. However, it is more important that strong restrictive steps are taken now at this point in time of this pandemic in the US and the World.






Why Taking Hormones in Menopause Can Improve Women’s Well-Being and Lengthen Their Lives – Without Raising the risk of Breast cancer.

How exciting to finally have a book written by an oncologist AVRUM BLUMING MD and CAROL TAVRIS PHD on the relationship of estrogen and cancer.

This book is a must read for all women 35 years old and above.

A quick recap:

The list of symptom associated with perimenopause (the time before cessation of menses usually starting at age 40-55 however i have seen it even earlier) and menopause (once menses cease.):

weight gain, depression, heart palpitations, thinning hair, memory issues, vaginal dryness, decreased libido, insomnia and difficulty sleeping, night sweats, hot flashes, mood swings, headaches, frequent urination, frequent bladder or urinary tract infections, achey joints, and bloating.

Estradiol is a very important hormone in the treatment of symptoms. However, more importantly it has been shown in studies that women who begin taking estradiol within 10 years of menopause have an decreased risk for heart disease, bone loss an cognitive decline.

The book states that studies show that if a woman starts estradiol 10 years after menopause, there may be an increase risk for breast cancer. The timing of estrogen supplementation is important.

When women come in to see me, many have been prescribed any number of medications to deal with the perimenopause or menopause symptoms they are experiencing for eg. ambien for sleep, zanax for anxiety, oral birth control pills for irregular menses, prophylactic antibiotics after intercourse to prevent a UTI. My experience is that with hormone optimization ( estradiol, progesterone, thyroid, and testosterone) most if not all of the symptoms disappear. And the biggest benefit is that they are also protecting their brains, their bones, and their heart.
