Anti-Aging Medicine is a wellness-oriented model of advanced preventive medicine. As we age changes take place in our body systems. Cellular processes slow down and tissues become less robust in performing their tasks and function. From head to toe and beginning as early as second decade of life our body systems begin to demonstrate senescence or signs of old age.
A thorough knowledge and application of advanced medical discoveries can reverse and slow down this process.
The ten Key systems in the body which age are:
- Endocrine system responsible for hormone response
- Immune system which mounts the body’s response to infections.
- Metabolic system involving age related physiological changes.
- Cardiovascular system involving heart and arteries
- Gastrointestinal system affecting absorption of nutrients.
- Reproductive system causing menopause in women and andropause in men.
- Nervous system responsible for the body’s muscular response to stimuli.
- Brain function including memory and cognition.
- Muscular system involving strength and function.
- Sensory system including the senses of touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing.
As an anti-aging practitioner we can understand these changes and apply customized plans to help slow down these changes.
