Integrative medicine (IM) offers a comprehensive approach to Health, Healthy Aging and Wellness. Practitioners do not only focus on treating patient symptoms but believe that the health care practitioners who look for more than just the obvious are the superior healers.
What makes Integrative Medicine appealing is the whole-person approach which ensures that a trusting partnership develops between the patient and doctor; where the goal is to treat holistically – we don’t view patients as a collection of parts that need to be fixed.
Anti-aging medicine is Functional – we aim to improve and rejuvenate all the functions of the body, making it stronger, healthier and more youthful.
Anti-aging medicine is Preventative – once a disease process has fully developed even the best drugs offer only limited hope. Therefore our approach is far more aggressive to prevent the diseases of aging with nutritional and metabolic therapies. Our aim is an improved health span not just a longer life span.
Anti-aging medicine is measurable – we are open-minded in our approach but remain very outcomes driven and science-based.
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) – Menopause (Females) & Andropause (Males).
It is impossible to achieve optimum health without a properly functioning hormonal system. Your hormone response is as unique to you as your fingerprints; therefore customized natural hormonal therapy is the only way to replace hormones safely.
Adrenal Fatigue – 21st Century Stress syndrome.
Bio-chemically, what happens in ‘Stress-mode’ is that the body deploys its immune system and hormonal systems to deal with whatever is threatening it, either internally or externally. The adrenal system is at the forefront of this defense mechanism, exploiting the power of hormones such as cortisol and adrenalin to survive the present situation. It has no concern with potential long-term effects on the body hence the myriad of health problems associated with this condition.
