What is Anti-Aging?
Scientific interventions that are geared to early detection of disease, prevention of disease and reversal of age related dysfunction and diseases.
The three basis rules of anti-aging are: Don’t get sick; don’t get old and don’t die
Prevention: Obesity, smoking, unhealthy nutrition and a sedentary lifestyle can reduce your life expectancy by 20 to 50 years.
There are other strategies that prevent or slow the aging process. Those include stress reduction, restful sleep, moderate alcohol consumption and combating free radical damage with antioxidants.
The next step to age management includes bio-identical hormone replacement to treat female Menopause and male Andropause. As we get older most hormones decline.
In women, while going through the changes of life or Menopause, estrogens, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, thyroid hormone, growth hormone and pregnenolone hormones all go down to low levels. This occurs with atrophy of the ovaries and thyroid glands. This result in mood swings, bone loss, night sweats, memory loss, sugar cravings, weight gain, insomnia, irritability and increase body fat to name several. Each hormone when low will contribute to the aging process.
Male Andropause occurs when the testicles halt its production of testosterone and other male hormones such as DHEA and dihydrotestosterone. This result in poor concentration, brain fog, sexual dysfunction, increase body fat and reduce lean body mass, weakened heart, emotional liability and loss of zeal for life.
The doctors and practitioners at ANWAN Wellness Medical Center have received special training in nutritional management geared at reducing the ravages of free-radical damage and in bio-identical hormone replacement geared to reduce or eliminate symptoms of Andropause and Menopause.
