Age Management

We have an Age Management program in which we provide healthy aging through Micronutrition / Nutrition Optimization and Nutraceuticals along with natural plant based Bio-Identical Hormone Optimization if clinically indicative.

As we age, >35 for women and >40 for men, the metabolic rate declines and the hormones start getting depleted. We Detroit both physically and mentally and we need restoration of this deterioration. We lose our energy and vitality along with our longevity.

This program will help the patients have more energy, stamina, strength and endurance. Look better and younger, stay healthier and most importantly improve the quality of life.

Age Management Program Includes:

  • Complete physical exam by the Physician.
  • Complete blood tests and profiling.
  • Dexa-Scan for diagnosing bone loss and fat content.
  • Cancer Screening as per latest guidelines.
  • Hormone levels testing and optimization if clinically indicated.
  • Diet Counseling.
  • Physical activity per age and current health.
  • Nutraceutical support and Multivitamins supplements.
About Nutraceuticals

Nutraceutical: derives from the words "nutrition" and "pharmaceutical", is a food or food product that reportedly provides health and medical benefits, including the prevention and treatment of disease. These products isolated or purified from foods that are generally sold in medicinal forms not usually associated with food. A nutraceutical is demonstrated to have a physiological benefit or provide protection against chronic disease. Such products may range from isolated nutrients, dietary supplements and specific diets to genetically engineered foods, herbal products, and processed foods such as cereals, soups, and beverages. With recent developments in cellular-level nutraceutical agents, researchers, and medical practitioners are developing templates for integrating and assessing information from clinical studies on complementary and alternative therapies into responsible medical practice.



About Micronutrients

Micronutrients are nutrients required by humans and other living things throughout life in small quantities to orchestrate a whole range of physiological functions, but which the organism itself cannot produce. For people, they include dietary trace minerals in amounts generally less than 100 milligrams/day as opposed to nutrients, which are required in larger quantities. The micronutrients or trace elements include at least iron, cobalt, chromium, copper, iodine, manganese, selenium, zinc and molybdenum. Micronutrients also include vitamins, which are organic compounds required as nutrients in tiny amounts by an organism.



About Hormones
DHEA

By age 40, DHEA declines markedly. Replacement results in immune enhancement, therefore making DHEA extremely important in cancer and infection prevention. DHEA is a precursor to the sex hormones and is therefore an important building block in the production of these hormones. DHEA helps the breakdown of fats and cholesterol, while reducing the formation of atherosclerotic plaques.

  Estrogen

Replacement with natural estrogen protects against heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer's disease and osteoporosis in women. Estrogen prevents symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes, temperature dis regulation, mood swings, urogenital atrophy, decreased libido and depression. Estrogen lowers LDL cholesterol and raises HDL (the good cholesterol).

  Progesterone

Replacement with natural progesterone protects against uterine and breast cancer plus osteoporosis. Progesterone reduces symptoms of menopause. Progesterone occurs naturally with estrogen and should be prescribed concurrently to balance estrogen.

 
Melatonin

This hormone is produced by the pineal gland and declines significantly by age 40. Melatonin controls circadian rhythm and sleep cycles. It induces sleep, improves quality of sleep and increases REM sleep and deep stage IV sleep. During this deep stage of sleep the immune system is stimulated. It has anti-cancer effects and modulates immune function by activating the cytokine system (lymphocytic function).

  Testosterone

This hormone is necessary in both men and women and declines steadily after age 30. Testosterone is responsible for sustaining libido, muscle mass and immunity. It protects against heart disease in men plus the degeneration of muscle, bone, tendon and joints. It is a great mood enhancer and imparts a sense of wellbeing in aging men and women.

  Thyroid Hormone

This metabolic hormone decreases steadily with age. Lack of Thyroid Hormone results in cold intolerance, fatigue, lassitude, weight gain, increased cholesterol, thin and dry skin, hair loss, thin and brittle nails. Replenishment results in reversal of these symptoms plus increased energy and metabolism.

 
Pregnenolone

Decline of this hormone occurs after age 30. This hormone aids in cellular repair of the central nervous system and is the most potent memory enhancer of all the hormones.
