Has antiaging medicine progressed beyond attempting to get antioxidants

Question:

Has antiaging medicine progressed beyond attempting to get antioxidants into the diet.  I would like a lifestyle that incorporates foods, creams and herbal remedies as well as preventative medicine.   Does your program include all of these options?

Answer:

Yes, antiaging medicine has progressed very rapidly, and now offers cutting edge treatments for optimizing health.  We always incorporate diet and lifestyle into an anti-aging assessment.  This is the foundation of a high-quality of life.  We always talk about optimal food intake, timing of food intake and maximizing the nutrients in your food intake.  Often, Bio-identical hormones are used in patients that are low in natural hormone levels, as a decline in hormone levels has been linked to accelerated aging process.  Supplements, herbs, vitamins and minerals are also utilized to maximize health.   Beyond that, there are many more cutting edge treatments that can be offered in anti-aging, but it also remains the ultimate in preventative medicine.  Therefore we want to prevent the disease before it starts, so we will always focus on that as well.
