Anti-Aging Medicine – an extension of preventive health care. The progressive approach is based on the early detection, prevention and reversal of aging-related diseases. The science of anti-aging medicine is really multi-disciplinary. It is represented by advances in the fields of biochemistry, biology, physiology, mind and body medicine, sports medicine, molecular genetics and modern medical technologies.
Modern technology allows to assess someone’s biological age, a more accurate assessment of the physiologic rate of aging than the chronological age. It involves special laboratory testing, including DXA osteoporosis scan, a painless, non-invasive test to measure bone density and risk of fracture, ECHO and Doppler tests of the heart and vessels, Hearing testing, Breathing function testing, Mental Sharpness testing, DNA degradation, measurement of oxidative stress, hormonal levels and other tests.The goal of anti-aging medicine is to enhance the intrinsic healing potential of the body and to supplement those areas that are deficient.
The Health Smart Medical Center addresses the needs of both males and females who wish not only to prevent disease, but to enhance their health and optimize their genetic aging potential. We provide skillful management of the hormones, including estrogen, testosterone, growth hormone, progesterone, DHEA, cortisol, prolactin, melatonin and thyroid hormone. Using physiologic hormone replacement, sophisticated use of nutritional supplements and lifestyle changes, including stress reduction and exercise, our professionals enhance a body’s potential to slow down aging.
In addition, there are ways of modulating gene expression, even in the patients with strong family history of various diseases such as premature heart disease and cancer. In other words, the manifestation of genetically predisposed conditions may be slowed down or even eliminated with proper interventions.
