“Aging” doesn’t have to mean growing old. Learn how to slow down the aging process and improve your energy, look, and mental sharpness with our age management program.
Age Management Medicine is about greatly slowing down the aging process internally and externally through replenishing and maintaining youthful levels of hormones and providing optimal nutrient levels in the body. It also includes using topical applications of products that reverse the effects of damaged skin, whether by repairing sun-damaged skin spots or decreasing/eliminating wrinkles. Products known as “Anti-Aging Medicine” are actually an impossibility. In reality, you cannot stop aging, but you can greatly slow it down. Obviously, the earlier you start this program the easier it is to achieve the best results, but even at any age, there are many things that can be done to improve your vitality, vigor, mental sharpness and improve your physical appearance.
Our body tissue is exposed over time to multiple factors that can accelerate the aging process: toxins, chemicals, sun damage and even physical damage from injuries. Through poor diet, we can also be crippling our repair molecules leading to cellular damage that accumulates over time. This creates an inadequate immune system, and can even be a major cause of cancer. When the body no longer has the ability to adequately monitor itself for irregular cell changes, it is no longer able to tell those mutated cells to destroy themselves (apoptosis). The mutated cells are then free to grow and multiply.
Normal cells, however, only have a certain number of replications possible. There is a unit at the end of our cellular chromosomes called a telomere. When the cellular chromosome reaches the end of the chain and hits the telomere, it automatically stops replication, and that cell is no longer produced. Medical science has not yet found a safe way to remove these telomeres so that continuous replications of healthy cells can take place, but they are working on it.
Of course, the best possible situation would be to live an entirely healthy life by drinking pure, clean water, eating fresh, wholesome foods, participating in moderate exercise/activity, sleeping 7-8 hours per night, inhaling pure, clean air, avoiding excessive harsh environmental exposures and living a relatively stress free life. Unfortunately, this is totally unobtainable by the majority of the inhabitants of this contaminated planet. But, there is hope!
Through a thorough Age Management program of evaluation and treatment, many patients can achieve very satisfying results and participate in many more healthy, happy years of productive living. These programs actually involve maintaining your existing cellular structure much longer and therefore prevent excessive cellular replication and prolong the inevitable progression to those dreaded telomeres. Staying healthy really does lead to longer life with better looking tissues.
Our Age Management Process:
The doctor will review your history thoroughly and then perform a complete physical exam. After this evaluation, a panel of lab tests will be ordered customized to your needs. There may be photographs obtained to document baseline problems so that we can measure improvement along the way. Some patients may also choose to be evaluated by a skin care specialist for focused treatments on problem areas.
Once the initial laboratory tests have returned, our physician will go through the results in detail with you and develop a comprehensive treatment plan. Prescription hormone therapies will be ordered along with remarkable supplements that greatly enhance youthfulness, vigor and vitality. Remarkably, you may notice that underlying chronic medical conditions may ease up or even go away! The body responds very well to having all the material it needs to repair its systems just as it was designed to do. Follow up visits will be scheduled so that the doctor can adjust the treatments to achieve the best possible outcome for your body.
Maintenance of your Age Management program will be set up once you have achieved your goals, and then you will stay on that healthy maintenance plan. As medical science advance, so will our clinics. We pledge to stay on the cutting edge of these technologies to bring our patients the very best healthcare available. We offer you healthy outcomes for a better tomorrow!
Our staff and doctors can answer any questions you may have about age management and assist you in finding the right treatments to restore you to the healthy, active person you want to be.
