Dr. Lynn is a pioneer in his profession. He has discovered with his 25 years of experience that diet, amino acids, immune enhancement, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, and anti-oxidants have a profound positive effect on degenerative disease and aging. The four cornerstones of anti-aging was developed from these studies.

He has spent years traveling throughout the world researching unique and successful methods. Leaders in natural therapy in the United States, such as Doctors Linus Pauling, John Christopher, and Bernard Jensen served as Dr. Lynn’s mentors. In 1991, he was invited to the Philippines to share his knowledge in natural and anti-aging medicine. Dr. Lynn’s efforts helped start the first Holistic Preventive Medical Centers in Hong Kong and the Philippines.

Dr. Lynn spent 2 years of personal study of world religious traditions at the Theosophical Society in Madras, India and continues to actively study the contemplative traditions in all major religions and offers suggested study materials in these traditions upon request. Living in Benedict Monastery in Guatemala as a Medical Missionary allowed him to expand and deepen his spiritual connections.

Dr. Lynn served his country as an infantry battalion surgeon in Vietnam with the 1st Marine Division and was awarded the Combat Action Medal and the South Vietnam Cross of Gallantry. He also served as a navy physician at Balboa Naval Hospital in San Diego, California.

Education & Early Career

Doctor Paul Lynn was born in Louisiana, graduating from Louisiana State School of Medicine in 1967 and completed his internship at Charity Hospital in New Orleans, Louisiana. He went on to serve as Naval Medical Officer and Second Lieutenant with the 1st Marine Division in Vietnam, gaining a greater understanding of battlefield trauma, tropical diseases, parasite infections and other related medicinal issues. He continued the study in tropical diseases while living in Madras India, and rural Guatemala.

Doctor Lynn studied later herbal therapies with Native American and Mormon Traditional Herbalists and Naturopaths in the early 1970s. He then traveled through Europe to study water cures, and detoxification methods in European Clinics and Therapeutic Spas. He personally studied Neural Therapy with the Huneke family of physicians from Germany, the original developers of this system of therapy which combines homeopathy and acupuncture.

Dr. Lynn initially became acquainted with the concepts and possibilities of rejuvenation, through a chance meeting with Anna Aslan, the developer of Gerovital, in Bucharest Romania. Also, while living in India, he continued to research the principals of natural rejuvenation in the yogic and aryvedic traditions of south India. In the early 1980s, Dr. Lynn began studying the effects of bioidentical hormone replacement with doctors in Brussels and Paris. He was the first physician in the Bay Area to use bio-identical progesterone to help women previously prone to miscarriages to successfully have children through the use of natural progesterone. This is now a better known natural infertility replacement method.


Beyond the above, Doctor Lynn has had a wide ranging career in medicine. He responded to a need for home based birthing by participating in the home birthing movement in Northern California in the late 1970s and 1980s. Through this, he did home births and supervised midwives in Northern California for several years. Throughout his career, Dr.Lynn has presided over or was the physician in charge of 150 births at home or in a hospital.

In 1991, he was invited to Asia to share his knowledge in natural and anti-aging medicine with doctors in these emerging societies. Dr. Lynn’s efforts over the next few years helped start up the first Holistic Preventive Medical Centers in both Hong Kong and the Philippines.

Dr. Lynn taught courses with CME accreditation to other doctors in the 1990s. The subjects taught were the use of mineral detoxification, and anti-oxidants to repair age and lifestyle related detiroration of functions within the body. The methods taught were the use of natural treatment programs of injectable and oral chelating and antioxidant agents to generate the repair of tissue and restore biomedical functionality. He also provided medical externships at his clinic for a variety of Osteopathic and MD students. while being on the teaching facility of ACAM and lecturing to student groups at UCSF Medical School and Life Chiropractic College.

Dr Lynn served on the Board of Directors of the American College of Advancement in Medicine in 1997. At that time ACAM was the largest professional society of physicians associated with Alternative Medicine.


Old World Family Doctor with New World Skills:
I can be a harsh critic sometimes of the western medical establishment. My biggest gripe is that many times I experience doctors as closed-minded and unaware of the many, many successful healing techniques that abound in the world, and in particular, those healing techniques of indigenous people.

Dr. Paul Lynn has that “house call” doctor feel about him. He runs the Preventive Medical Group in San Francisco, and promotes a philosophy that espouses the natural healing abilities of the body, while providing assistance in the form of therapies, herbs, and supplements to get your body back on track. He diagnoses with detailed blood tests, and takes time, literally hours, to explain to his patients what is going on and how to correct it. I think in the last 15 years, I’ve spent a total of about an hour with all my previous doctors combined, and none ever took the time to have a conversation with me about my body or to answer questions I had about something I read in a health journal or on the web. Dr. Lynn not only does that, but he takes xerox copies of articles that his patients bring him from wherever, and researches them to better understand if there is any validity to the thesis.

He has helped me lower both my blood pressure and cholesterol significantly, without medication, and has improved my moods and sense of well-being with high-quality supplements that he researches and provides right at his clinic, saving me the bewildering trips to the local vitamin store wondering about different brands and their efficacy. Plus, he is just such a nice guy, who is constantly reading about the latest in nutritional and natural therapies, that you’ll find yourself entranced in discovering holistic treatments that work quickly and sometimes dramatically. If you are in the SF area and are looking for a doctor who can help you to help yourself, no matter what your conditions are, you wouldn’t be disappointed with a consultation from Dr. Lynn. I am so grateful to know the man.” – James E

“I can’t promise you that you will live 25 years longer, but you might not if you do not see  Dr Lynn and follow his program.” – CM, Cafe Owner, Sausalito, CA

“He is a real doctor in every sense of the word. Listen to him.” – Carrie Owens, Richmond, CA

“I am a 56 y/o woman working full time as a Financial planner in Marin. Just wanted to comment on how much I have appreciated working with Dr. Paul Lynn to get my postmenopausal hormones straightened out. He seems to have all the newest and safest info and research on bioidentical hormones, anti aging protection, and adrenal fatigue at his disposal. Best of all, he could explain all the controversies clearly to me better than anyone else I had met previously.

I had worked with a couple of other holistic MD’S before but could never get my bioidentical hormone program quite right before being referred to Dr Lynn at SFPMG by a friend. Paul has had over 20 years of experience working with women and men from all over the world as the Medical Director of SFPMG. I met people from literally every continent when visiting his office. He brings a really relaxed professional manner to his work which allows an interactive flow of ideas and explanations during the visits.

It also helps to know that both he and his wife Bonnie have had the personal experience of  utilizing the BHRT programs early on and they both look great! So, if you are looking for answers to some of your tough questions or problems with your bioidentical hormone program, go see him, he’s great!” – Jane S., – Patient; Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

“Dear Dr Paul Lynn, First of all, I’d like to thank you for recommending the book, ‘Cloud of Unknowing’. It has opened a whole new dimension of my perception to the world in healing and wholeness. From a spiritual dimension, perfect health is do-able if only, we believe and open ourselves entirely to the ‘unknowing’ that our Source will provide. It is very hard to do, but faith is what helps heal finally and this you understand. Of course, healing hands are primary. I have keenly perceived that your gift as a doctor is beyond everyone else’s in your profession. I also especially admire Dr Grieder next to you, as a ‘younger version ‘, in that he has most of the traits that you have demonstrated in your practice. He is also very professional and speaks highly of your clinic in his practice as a product of your mentorship.” – Vicki  W. – Professional business person, San Francisco, CA

Comments About Specific Cases

Dr. Lynn has great supplements to keep me alkaline and in harmony with the natural way. Now I have a happy, laughing prostate instead of a constant irritation. Everything he has recommended has been a phenomenal boon to my health. Even the labs he uses are well beyond the ordinary. Three years ago, Dr. Lynn recommended a new test for small dense LDL. I said why? He said that’s really the LDL that causes heart attacks.

Three years ago, Dr. Lynn recommended a new test for small dense LDL. I said why? He said that’s really the LDL that causes heart attacks. Not the total LDL I had always done before. None of the conventional doctors were doing it at the time. Turns out I had small dense LDL. No problem, he helped me lower them without drugs. Unbelievable! Only now conventional doctors recognize the value of the test.

See Dr. Lynn in person if you can. He is one of the best, if the best doctor I have met to keep your healthy. If you can’t, at least go to your local doctor and ask for the small dense LDL test. It could save your life. CM – Businessman, 68, SF

To start, I am a 21 year old college student, enrolled at the University of California (San Francisco), and at the end of the semester, I had to undergo a minor surgical procedure. While recovering, I needed to take a large quantity of over the counter pain medication in order to deal with the pain of the bandage remove and other process. However, when I decided to go off of the medication, I was faced with a problem. Rebound headaches. Before I went off the medication, I was unaware of a rebound headache, and did not know that withdrawal symptoms can occur after taking medications such as Tylenol and Advil. However, when the headaches began, I tried to treat them with other medication, (sold at the CVS pharmacy!).

This only made the headaches worse in the long run. As I have seen Dr. Lynn for other consultations before, I decided to call him up. He gave me a regime including Lithium Orotate and Picamillone, as well as Magnesium spray, to manage the headaches and the symptoms, and it worked. Only 4 days after beginning his program, I began to recover, where the other sources I consulted said that these headaches could last upwards of 2 weeks in the initial phase, and reoccur often, sometimes even requiring a hospital visit. But I didn’t need any of that, and thanks to Dr. Lynn, am able to properly enjoy life! – Tom, College Student, 21

I am a 68 year old, retired businesses man who was diagnosed with spinal stenosis and scheduled for surgery. Dr.Paul Lynn has successfully treated me for irregular heart beats with his specialized plan using a European supplement plan and chelation.

To the surprise of my cardiologist, my arteries are clear of blockage and my extra heartbeats are completely controlled. Dr.Lynn has a reputation treating heart diseases and I sought out his help for this. And I am thankful I did. As long as I follow his regimen, my irregular heartbeats are under control and the reports regarding my weakened heart muscle has improved.

But along comes another problem which I did not consider seriously asking Dr. Lynn about. For the first in my life I had a low back pain which would not go away. In my retirement, I have become an avid outdoorsman and fishermen. But suddenly, not being able to use my lower back, I was reduced to sitting in a reclining chair taking tranzadone and neurontin.
These meds made me so dopey I sort of didn’t care but I still held out hopes for a life beyond the recliner chair. Various specialists recommended surgical procedures, and my surgery was scheduled.

Since I had a relative who had had poor results from surgeries for spinal stenosis, I asked Dr.Lynn for further specialists to consult. To my surprise, he himself recommended a program which he said had worked for many people in the past. It consisted of a completely non-surgical regimen which has worked to this day.

I have canceled my scheduled surgery and am stable as long I follow Dr.Lynns low back pain program. My hat’s off to the guy. His recommendation may seem sometimes “Out of the box” but he always has the research to back it up. In my experience if you don’t follow his recommendations, it is at your own risk. RK – Patient

This note is to express my great appreciation for the skill, wisdom and patience that Dr. Paul Lynn has shown over several years as we tried to find the source of my fatigue, depression and fuzzy thinking.  I’m in my mid fifties and have suffered from “chronic fatigue” symptoms for nearly two decades.

Allopathic medicine said, alternatively, depending on the doctor, that I was perfectly healthy, crazy or going to die of some unspecified autoimmune disease they could not find or diagnose but were willing to bet on.  Working with Dr. Lynn has been an entirely different and uplifting experience. He found that thyroid was clearly involved, due to the symptoms, but tests kept coming back normal.

Dr. Lynn is always keeping up on the latest medical information in natural medicine and he decided to test out a new finding. He suspected my thyroid was producing reverse T-3 hormone which tests normal but does not provide the vitality that healthy thyroid hormone does. Once we tested and treated for this, within weeks my entire health picture changed. I have regained the energy I had in my 30’s and the fuzziness and depression have lifted.

I am again living a happy, energetic and productive life.  I cannot say enough for the patience, persistence, caring and hard work that Dr. Lynn and his staff have for their patients.  I look forward to working with Dr. Lynn and the SF Preventive team to stay young and healthy for a long time to come. -Carolyn Renaud
