Is Anti Aging a Myth?

Anti Aging

First, lets make sure we understand Anti Aging.

While we know we will be living longer, anti aging allows us to enjoy a productive, happy and disease-free life. It is the science of restoration of optimal cellular function through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), nutrition, detoxification and balancing of the mind and body. Whether you call it “anti aging” or “regenerative” or “restorative” or “functional”; this is no myth.

Is anti aging for me?

Take yourself for a moment to age 50. You have the rest and the best of your life in front of you. How do you want to live these years? The basis of our current medical standard is the treatment of existing disease. If you have high blood pressure, you can take a pill. If you have a heart attack, you can get a bypass. If you have cancer, you can get chemotherapy. But once the bypass is complete and once the cancer is removed, you are still left with the underlying imbalances that allowed the plaque or the cancer to develop in the first place. Given the choice; would you not choose to restore optimal function and prevent recurrences in the future?  If so, you are on a quest. You are on a quest for information and a health care provider who will partner with you to help restore balance and optimize your quality of life.

How does it relate to medical conditions?

This is no myth. The last two decades in medicine proves that applied correctly this new genre of medicine results in greater than a 90% resolution of symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia, decreased libido, weight gain, anxiety, depression, muscle and joint pains and decreased mental function. It also results in greater than an 80% improvement of disease states such as fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, gastric reflux, IBS, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, PMS, PCOS, infertility and in teenagers, ADD, anxiety and sleep disorders; and thus, the quest for “anti-aging” medicine.

Anti aging medicine applies advanced technologies for very early detection, prevention and reversal of age-related disease. There is a growing body of data supporting the reality of anti aging medicine, while derailing the notion that it is a myth.

Weight gain is a result of

imbalances in hormones (insulin, thyroid, cortisol, estrogen, progesterone etc), nutrients (that activate fat breakdown and muscle development), toxicities (i.e. acidity preventing the release of fat) and stress in the mind (causing increased cortisol and fat storage).

Cognitive decline (i.e. brain fog) results from...

Click to see the answer!

Cognitive decline results from

hormone deficiencies such as  thyroid, estrogen, testosterone deficiencies, nutrient deficiencies (i.e. B-12, B-6, folate, anti-oxidants), toxicities (i.e. bowel, acidity, chemicals) and mind imbalances, especially stress can cause brain fog and lead to cognitive decline.

Thyroid deficiency symptoms result from...

Thyroid symptoms result from

low thyroid hormone compounded by nutrient deficiencies (i.e. iodine, zinc, selenium, ferritin, B-12), and bowel and liver toxicities which prevent absorption and activation of thyroid. There is also increasing data showing the role of stress on thyroid suppression.

Bone decline is caused by ...

Bone decline is a caused by

deficiencies of hormones (i.e. progesterone, estrogen, testosterone, growth hormone) and nutrients (calcium, magnesium, Vitamin D, boron), compounded by toxic overload such as acidity, heavy metals (which displace calcium and magnesium) and bowel toxins which prevent the absorption of nutrients.

Skin aging is a result of ...

Skin aging is a result of

deficiencies of collagen builders such as estrogen, DHEA, growth hormone, thyroid, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, amino-peptides and others. Almost all skin cells are maintained by a combination of hormones and nutrients. Thus, interventions on the outside must be accompanied by ones to correct the inside.
