Anti-Aging Medicine

The field of anti-aging medicine uses advanced biomedical technologies to prolong a healthy lifespan for humans. The goal is early detection, prevention, treatment, and reversal of age-related dysfunction, disorders, and diseases. Anti-aging medicine is based on principles of sound and responsible medical care that are consistent with those of other preventive health specialties. 

 

Weight Loss and Vitality uses such concepts to advance health and prevent disease with these components in mind:

 

  • Nutrition, Exercise and Sleep
  • Improved Body Composition
  • Decrease Oxidation, Inflammation and Cellular Death
  • Detoxification Therapy
  • Skin Care
  • GI Health

 

Nutrition, Exercise and Sleep

 

Good health requires nutrition, exercise and sleep, which should be the foundation of all wellness programs.  Eating, exercising and sleeping correctly supports all the systems of the body and promotes health and longevity.  Our patients are provided extensive education, eating and exercise plans along with options for healthy meals to support these three foundational factors.

 

Improved Body Composition

 

Anyone can lose weight, but the trick is keeping it off. Improving body composition for ongoing weight management.  Our clinic uses metabolic testing to assess each patient’s daily energy use.  With that information in hand, techniques and options are provided for each patient. The goal is a healthier metabolism and lifestyle. Options include hormone management, growth hormone peptide therapy, and specific exercise and eating plans.

 

Decrease Oxidation, Inflammation and Cellular Death

 

Oxidation happens as our bodies process oxygen and our cells create energy from it.  This is a normal process resulting in free radicals being released into our bodies. Normally with a healthy diet, exercise and good sleep habits, the body handles this process well, using antioxidants to remove the free radicals. However, in today’s world of high sugar/carb diets, lack of sleep, GI dysfunction, pollutants, pesticides and food high in chemical content, our bodies’ antioxidants can be overwhelmed. This results in free radical build-up and damage to surrounding cells, proteins and DNA (genes), leading to accelerated aging and increased risk of chronic disease. At Weight Loss and Vitality we use detoxification intravenous therapy including multi vitamin, glutathione and high dose Vitamin C to offset this condition and remove free radicals from your body.

 

Detoxification Therapy

 

Weight Loss and Vitality uses Glutathione “master antioxidant” along with Vitamin C to neutralize free radicals and help prevent the progression to oxidative stress.  Glutathione will help your body eliminate noxious molecules that create oxidant stress and support a healthy functioning system.

 

Skin care

 

Oxidative stress and free radical damage in skin cells lead to premature wrinkles and skin pigmentation changes.  These changes are accelerated by unprotected sun exposure, pollution, and loss of subcutaneous fat support of the face.  Our clinic utilizes prescription medication including peptides that decrease areas of hyperpigmentation and improves collagen production, skin cell renewal, wrinkle reduction and enhanced skin elasticity.

 

GI Health

 

Gastrointestinal function is critical for good health and necessary for proper nutrient absorption.  Emerging evidence has associated overall GI function and gut microbiome status with a wide variety of common illnesses including, but not limited to:

 

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Celiac and Other Malabsorption Disorders
  • Mood Disorders
  • Autoimmune Disorders
  • Autism

 

Advanced GI testing is available which includes a set of sophisticated biomarkers looking at digestion absorption, inflammation and colonization counts of the billions of gut microbiome.
