Ask an Expert About Preventive Anti-Aging Medicine

The gradual wasting away of the body over the course of decades is not a necessary or normal component of aging. Rather, it is the natural outcome of a lifetime of unenlightened choices. Through unhealthy choices you may actually function and be aging biologically at the same level as someone 15-20 years older. The question is how can you be one of those people who function and age biologically at a level equivalent to someone who is many years younger than you?

The answer can be found at Longevity Wellness Centers with a Preventive-Aging Consultation. Longevity Wellness Centers offers a number of consultative levels:

Youthful Hormone Replenishment

We age, in part, because our hormones decline. Hormones regulate cellular functions and genetic expression. You were the healthiest when hormones were at optimal levels in your youthful prime. It is only when hormones decline and synthetic hormones are introduced to the body that we see problems. Replenishing a youthful balance with natural bioidentical hormones can restore youthful vitality and delay many aging-related health problems.

This service level provides a comprehensive assessment of your hormone blood levels and related medical history, with individualized recommendations for optimum hormone replenishment. One-on-one physician consultation and instruction covers all aspects of safe hormone replenishment,
specific for you.

Hormone Replenishment and Nutritional Lifestyle

Obesity is the fastest growing health problem in the U.S. Managing a healthy weight becomes increasingly difficult as we age, and most diets fail because they are not individualized to your needs. This consultation adds a comprehensive nutritional lifestyle evaluation to the hormone replenishment service described on the opposite page.

A detailed assessment and computer analysis of your current nutritional lifestyle, and a body fat analysis provide the basis for a customized dietary program to achieve your goals. One-on-one physician consultation and instruction covers all aspects of safe hormone replenishment and optimal nutrition, specific for you.

Comprehensive Preventive-Aging Program

Patients typically describe the Longevity Wellness Centers Comprehensive Preventive-Aging Program as a “life-changing experience.” It is a total body, mind, and spirit approach to wellness. A custom life-plan is created to personally guide your journey to functionally age at a level equivalent to someone many years younger than your chronological age, and replenish your youthful vitality.
