Age Management

What is Age Management Medicine?

Age Management Medicine is a well researched, multi-faceted program, based on the early detection, prevention, and reversal of the degenerative effects of aging.  The primary goal is preventing age related disease and living healthier for a longer period of time. This protocol includes Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy BHRT, Pharmaceutical-grade vitamin and mineral supplementation, diet, exercise and emotional self-care. This personalized program will be designed to help you feel and function your best while preventing age related decline in health.

Conventional Medicine holds the belief that aging is associated with debilitating symptoms and progressive deterioration and decline that cannot be altered. The degenerative processes known as aging occur precisely because of our declining hormones. Hormones are molecules that are manufactured in the endocrine glands, which include the ovaries, testes, thyroid, adrenal gland, pituitary and pineal gland. Some of the symptoms associated with declining hormones are:

  • Low energy and persistent, unexplained fatigue
  • Depression, anxiety, irritability and excessive emotions
  • Reduced feeling of well-being
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Joint pain
  • Decreased mental clarity
  • Memory loss
  • Hot flashes/night sweats
  • Decreased energy and physical stamina
  • Decreased libido
  • Accelerated bone loss
  • Hair and skin changes
  • Decreased muscle mass and strength
  • Reduced metabolism
  • Fat tissue redistribution (away from hips towards abdomen, trunk)

Research suggests that aging is likely due to a combination of factors that include degeneration of bodily functions due to hormone decline, free radical damage due to lifestyle factors, chronic inflammation, loss of DNA, ability to produce or too much insulin.  When these events are controlled or prevented, the likelihood of illness and disability is reduced or prevented, and it becomes possible to maintain good health, strong muscles and bones, an efficient immune system, sharp memory and peak mental and physical function at any age.

The combination of Bio-identical Hormone Replacement and Age Management form the ultimate cutting edge in preventative medicine. While the aging process is inevitable, we are entering a new era in mainstream medicine that focuses on prevention of disease and living with energy and vitality. Whether you are 45, 65 or 85, male or female, it’s never to late to discover healthy aging!
