Age management employs the latest scientific research, advances in biotechnology, and clinical preventive medicine to possibly slow down conditions associated with aging. Through preventive screenings, early disease detection, prompt intervention, and optimal nutrition, anti-aging physicians help fight and slow down age-related disease and dysfunction.
Age Management Helps You Maintain A Healthy Life Longer
Your biological age is not the same as your chronological age. In unhealthy people, their biological ages are often measured to be much higher than their real ages. On the other hand, healthy people are often seen as much younger than they actually are. Age management focuses on slowing down the biological aging process by treating and preventing age-related disease on the molecular and cellular level.
Age Management Focuses on the Underlying Condition
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 the 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 the patient's health.
Age management 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, not simply prescribe medication to mask disease symptoms. Instead of maintaining disease in its current state, age management emphasizes the need to improve health, optimize performance and increase the quality of life for the patient.
Hormone Balance is Vital to Your Health
Patients often complain of fatigue, memory problems, headaches, and emotional and relationship issues. Although these complaints are frequently treated with prescription drugs to mask the symptoms, the true underlying causes are not adequately addressed.
The absence or imbalance of certain hormones has often been found to be the primary cause of such common patient complaints. With age, your body becomes less efficient in producing proper levels of natural hormones that are critical to the functioning of all major organs and vital body systems. Unhealthy lifestyle, poor nutrition, stress and toxins cause molecular stress inside your body that lead to serious hormonal imbalances.
Both men and women can have hormonal problems. Women frequently suffer from perimenopausal symptoms. Men experience andropause, which is often associated with low testosterone levels.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
With minimal intervention, an anti-aging physician can help patients with hormonal deficiencies regain their health and vitality. Treating the underlying hormonal imbalance has a much better effect than prescribing separate medications for individual symptoms. Perimenopausal women report tremendous improvement in their well-being, as well as reduced depression, better sleep, no anxietyand no more weight gain.
In both men and women, disorders improve, thinking improves and personal relationships get better. Patients report dramatic results, regained health and renewed vitality. Their zest for life comes back.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) uses hormones that are identical on the molecular level to the hormones in your body. Hormone levels are tested throughout the process to determine the proper balance. Age management emphasizes restoring hormones to normal, acceptable, healthy levels and returning your body to good health.
Nutrition and Supplementation
Along with proper hormone balance, metabolic balance is crucial to your health, well-being and optimal performance. Anti-aging physicians understand that the body must obtain and absorb the right nutrients to function properly and remain disease-free. Nutritional deficiency 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-threating conditions.
Using the latest nutritional testing, an experienced anti-aging physician 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.
Not all supplements are the same. If your micronutrient testing shows deficiencies in any one of the 26 different areas, supplements can correct the deficiency. We recommend the Stay Young Vitamin Line because it is pharmaceutical grade and we have seen significant improvement in micronutrient levels using this line.
A personalized approach to healthcare is one of the most important cornerstones of age management. Anti-aging physicians 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.
Age management focuses on designing custom treatment programs based on tests, individual risk assessments, and unique health histories. Customized therapies allow age management doctors to help their patients achieve and maintain optimal levels of performance: sexual, physical, and mental.
In age management, prevention of future disease is just as important as treating an existing one. The best way to treat any medical condition is to prevent one in the first place. Active screening, early diagnosis, latest laboratory testing, modern medical imaging technologies, and prompt intervention are fundamental to helping patients avoid serious, life-threatening diseases.
If you can prevent future diseases, you don't have to be treated. An anti-aging physician will help you identify important risk factors and design a customized treatment to avoid getting sick. By optimizing health, improving nutrition, and making positive adjustments to your lifestyle, you can minimize the risks of major diseases:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Cerebrovascular disorders
- Alzheimer's disease
Age management focuses on optimizing health, maintaining wellness, reducing known risk factors, preventing diseases, pre-emptive testing and slowing down age-related diseases.
Age management emphasizes an integrative and holistic approach to treating the body and the mind. Anti-aging physicians focus on health optimization and often combine a variety of methods to optimize their patients' health:
