We do a Cellular level tests may include skin biopsies and biochemical tests for hormone and cholesterol levels , and DNA for damage to hereditary matter.

The sooner you begin, the more benefits you derive from an improved quality of life. Anti aging is not just for those over 50. Many informed 20 and 20 year olds are insuring a healthier future with known anti aging supplements such as glyconutrients.

How many years can you extend a persons life with antiaging measures?

It depends upon the patient's motivation, how early in life that you start treatment, and how compliant the person is. A reasonable expectation for someone who begins a rigorous program in their mid 30s could be an extra 10 to 20 years or more.

What anti-aging supplements are generally used?

At the base level, deficiencies in vitamins and minerals are supplemented with a balanced nutritional multi-vitamin, mineral and anti-oxidant complex. In more complex regimes, HGH and glyconutrients are used.

Like anything with the body – always consult a qualified physician.

Where can I get Anti Aging Supplements?

Care should be taken, regardless of your chosen source to ensure that the products are high quality. The quality determines how much and how well the substance is absorbed by the body. Products on this site have been sourced to meet our quality criteria in these areas.

What foods should I eat on an anti aging program?

The diet we recommend is high in vegetable protein, fish and white-meat chicken. Red meat can be supplemented once a week or once a fortnight if iron levels drop, but generally, it produces more strain on the liver to digest it, diverting precious processing from anti-oxidizing processes .

What are cognitive enhancers?

Techniques to improve your mental acumen. Some involve natural herbs like ginko. Meditation is also an effective enhancer.

How long should I be on an anti aging program?

Anti aging is a lifetime program. Whilst you may be tempted to reduce your intake of supplements when you feel the benefits have been achieved, remember you only feel that good because you ARE taking them. Also, many supplements are preventative, so you may not see any particular results from taking them.

What is involved in hormone replacement therapy?

Hormones are chemical messengers that control bodily functions. Aging depletes the body's hormonal levels. We measure a persons level of hormones and prescribe balanced hormone replacement to restore hormone levels to where they were in the persons early 30s. In many cases, this can be done naturally with secretogogues, which release the hormones already made by the body.

Where can I get glyconutrients?

The main supplier of high quality glyconutrients is Mannatech. These are obtainable online or phone order. See our Suppliers List for local contacts.

What results should I expect?

In most cases, an increase in energy is the most noticed immediate result. It normally takes four to six months for DNA to regenerate in the body, so any other changes cannot be expected before this time.

How much does an AntiAging Program cost?

This depends upon how far you wish to go with the program. A good complex supplement may only cost $25 a month. I also take HGH and glyconutrients, my total monthly spend is more like $250 - $300 a month. It’s a personal choice. I prefer to pay this amount in prevention, rather than in life insurance policies.

Are the treatments covered by insurance?

Insurers are geared more toward treatment of disease than preventive medicine. However, Physician consultation, and some of the labs may be covered by insurance.

What role does the persons primary care physician play?

We are a consultant to the primary care provider. We're here to augment their practice.
