What is Anti-Aging Medicine? The basis of Anti-Aging Medicine is to use the latest research to support the body nutritionally and hormonally. It also looks at Environmental toxins and Lifestyle issues that can deplete the body’s reserves and cause accelerated aging. Professional Nutrition Services focuses on the uniqueness of each client instead of using a disease-centered approach. Each patient brings in their own unique, complex and interwoven set of characteristics that set the stage for developing disease or influencing the direction and maintenance of their own health. The latest in medical research is bringing to the forefront that inflammation is at the base of many disease states, including:
- Rheumatoid arthritice
- Thyroid Disease
- MS, etc.
Complimentary Therapy and Anti-Aging Specialists work with their patients to understand the underlying cause of their increased inflammation, whether it be •dietary •allergens •environmental toxins •chronic infections •overgrowth of intestinal bacteria leading to altered intestinal permeability •adrenal fatigue leading to altered cortisol levels •emotional baggage
Another reason we age is because we lose our sex-hormones or have imbalances in our Brain Neurotransmitters. Anti-Aging Specialists understand the importance of hormonal and neurotransmitter balance and utilize Natural Bio-Identical Hormones and Holistic Products where applicable to correct any imbalances. The old HRT is outdated as All-Natural Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is much safer and more effectively utilized as it possesses the exact same molecules as the hormones found in your body naturally. In Anti-Aging , Regenerative and Functional Medicine it is important to examine all of these aspects: •Diet (type and quantity of food, preparation, calories, fats, proteins, carbohydrates) •Nutrients (both dietary and supplemental) •Air •Water •Microorganisms (general condition of soil which food is grown) •Physical Exercise •Traumas •Psycho-social factors (family, work, community, economics, stress) •Environmental inputs
Holistic Treatment is about the Whole Person and recognizing that what you do in your life everyday contributes to the outcome and chronic conditions you experience. Treating each symptom without addressing the causes is what you are familiar with from general medical care. In Anti-Aging care we try to reach the source of the problems and work with you to rectify and help you experience the best quality of life that you can. We hope you understand that how you age does matter! Return to Top of Page Return to Homepage
