Anti-Aging medicine employs the latest scientific research, advances in biotechnology, and clinical preventive medicine to slow down conditions associated with aging. Through preventive screenings, early disease detection, prompt intervention, and optimal nutrition, anti-aging we can help fight and slow down age-related disease and dysfunction.
In traditional medicine, physicians attempt to address the processes of illness and control its symptoms. A traditional doctor will prescribe medicine to help mask individual disease symptoms. Because prescription drugs have undesired side effects, they tend to cause further problems in the patient’s body. These secondary symptoms are not the result of the underlying disease, but rather the effect of medication used to alleviate the original symptoms. The patient receives more drugs and the downward spiral of masking disease with prescription drugs continues. The physician’s role is often reduced to managing drugs and not patient’s health.
Anti-aging medicine deals with the actual physiological and biochemical causes for diseases and age-related disorders. Anti-aging doctors focus on treating the body at the microscopic, cellular, and biochemical levels. Anti-aging physicians find and treat the cause of disease, and not simply prescribe medication to mask disease symptoms. Instead of maintaining disease in its current state, anti-aging medicine emphasizes the need to improve health, optimize performance, and increase the quality of life for you.
Metabolic balance is crucial to your health, well-being, and optimal performance. We understand that the body must obtain and absorb the right nutrients to function properly and remain disease-free. Nutritional deficiencies and gut inflammation are often the underlying causes of serious and debilitating symptoms.
Even asymptomatic patients can suffer from low levels of amino acids, vitamins, or minerals. These nutritional deficiencies frequently lead to the development of more serious, often life-threatening, conditions. For example, research shows that the majority of people are deficient in Vitamin D which plays an important role in improving glucose metabolism, maintaining bone health, strengthening immunity, and preventing cancer.
We can help you determine your nutritional deficiencies and design a customized supplementation plan. Simple adjustments in your diet and supplements can make a huge difference in the improvement of your health and vitality.
A personalized approach to healthcare is one of the most important cornerstones of anti-aging medicine. We understand and emphasize that every patient is different biochemically, physiologically, and psychologically. A successful treatment plan must take into account the unique biochemistry of each individual patient.
