ANTI-AGING MEDICINE

Anti-Aging Medicine is a medical specialty dedicated to the prevention of age related disability and extending the functional life span.  Our goal is to live longer but stay healthier.  As we age, diseases such as Alzheimers, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, and frailty of old age become increasingly prevalent.  Most of these maladies of older age can be improved by detecting signs and symptoms of declining health earlier than was once thought possible.  Therefore, one is able to break the chain of events that lead to organ dysfunction and inevitable disease before permanent damage is done.  But we strive for more than just disease prevention, we strive for optimum health and function regardless of a person's chronological age.

Ground breaking research in anti-aging medicine includes using one's genetic makeup to tailor therapeutic interventions.  While alteration of genetic code to improve health is not yet mainstream, we can influence how genes are expressed by modifying our lifestyle, improving nutrition, and balancing our hormones.  In other words, many common diseases of aging can be avoided by regular exercise, eating healthful food, and even improving our attitude.

Getting older is inevitable, but the rate of aging is a choice. The foundation of health and longevity is good nutrition and living a healthy lifestyle. Malnutrition delays healing, compromises immunity, and diminishes cellular energy and metabolism. Healthy cells make healthy tissues, and healthy tissues make healthy organs. So the primary principle in anti-aging is to take care of your cells! So how do we do that? Eat a good diet, get restful sleep, avoid environmental toxins and maintain a healthy weight. It may be helpful to be evaluated for vitamin, mineral, antioxidant, and hormonal deficiencies. We encourage everyone to get physical and mental exercise daily. Strive for emotional, spiritual, physical and mental well being.  Some patients may require testing for allergies, food intolerances, and neurotransmitter dysfunction if symptoms warrant.
