The biggest difference between this and more traditional medicine is found in the approach. Anti-Aging Medicine essentially operates on the basis of three pillars
This takes the focus away from the disease or illness and instead endeavors to balance a patient’s nutritional needs and lifestyle choices with hormones, the environment, and genetics. In this way, we don’t simply treat or mask symptoms with reactive hypotheses, but instead, work with the patient to prevent illness before symptoms can begin. Such steps improve patient health and provide for a more fulfilling life.
Your biological age provides a better indication of how your body has aged over the course of your lifetime. In healthy people, this number is typically lower than chronological age.
The goal of anti-aging medicine is to slow biological aging; this is why as a practice, we incorporate into your treatment and prevention the same factors as those used to determine your biological age.
Oxidative stress is a known cause of many chronic diseases including cancer, diabetes and obesity. To prevent, decrease or repair oxidative stress your body needs the right ingredients from a healthy diet. Most Americans do not have this habit of healthy eating and are, therefore, prone to free-radical damage and therefore decreased longevity.
To repair this, we utilize a Biophotonic Scanner to measure your levels of fat-soluble antioxidants. This gives us a score which correlates to your risk for oxidative stress. From there, we recommend a minimum 90-day trial on our specially formulated supplements. These supplements are the only ones found in the Physician’s Desk Reference and have hundreds of scientifically backed resources to achieve a better score on our S3 Scanner.
As a means of prevention, anti-aging medicine employs routine screenings and early detection to fight and/or slow age-related deterioration. This is how we keep your biological age as low as possible.
Your biological age is not the same as your chronological age. Instead of counting the number of years you’ve been alive, your biologic age reflects your status with:
With this in mind, your treatment plan will encompass internal and external factors. It will also probe much deeper than traditional medicine to prevent disease, correct current conditions, and help you feel younger than your chronological age.
