Anti-Aging Or Longevity Medicine 

Anti-aging or longevity medicine is not simply about hormones. I consider hormone optimization the finishing touch. As an anti-aging physician I need to consider the patient’s lifestyle. This includes nutrition, detoxification, exercise, stress reduction, antioxidants and nutraceuticals.

One vital component of the patient’s well-being and longevity is the degree of inflammation present in the body. An inflammatory response at the time of an acute infection is vital to our well-being, but chronic inflammation is not good. Heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and essentially all illnesses of aging are related to inflammation.

Anti-aging medicine is ,therefore, holistic in nature with a major emphasis in curbing inflammation within us. This is what will give us not simply longevity,but an improved quality of life.
