AGING WELL



One of the most controversial fields of medicine today is the field of anti-aging medicine.  Some physicians contend that the aging process should not be interfered with and that men should accept aging gracefully.  Others have created practices entirely devoted to aggressively trying to stop the clock from advancing.

In our practice we address the desire of our typical patient to live a long, healthy and high quality life. 

Currently there is no proven way to delay or stop the human aging process. The fountain of youth and immortality are fantasy, unless you are a statue!

Aging is a natural process.  While it cannot be cured, it can be managed.  The goal of anti-aging medicine is not to live longer as an older person, but to delay the process of aging and to give people a greater number of healthy, quality years.  

There are many ways to delay the effects of aging and to in essence live a longer, healthier and more fulfilling life.  Anti-aging medicine accepts aging as a treatable condition, which can be slowed through medical interventions.

Some are very obvious and very effective, like wearing sun screen or a wearing a seatbelt, not driving while impaired, a balanced diet and regular exercise.  Some are just plain hard to do like stopping smoking or using drugs or consuming too much alcohol.  Others are more subtle and more elusive like properly treating diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.  

The most controversial and possibly the most meaningful modalities of treatment include caloric restriction with proper nutrition, hormonal therapies using testosterone, DHEA, HGH, melatonin, antioxidants like resveratrol and vitamin supplements.

Men who are interested in increasing their chances of aging well should consider one or more of the following:

LIFESTYLE MODIFICATION
REGULAR EXERCISE
DISEASE MANAGEMENT
CALORIC RESTRICTION
OPTIMIZED NUTRITION
HORMONAL SUPPLEMENTATION
NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS


While we cannot guarantee that you will live longer, you will likely feel better, look better, have more energy, have better immunity, have a stronger sex drive and better sex, sleep better and have a more positive mental attitude.
