HEALTHY AGING PROGRAMS
Prevent and Reverse Age Related Diseases
Do you want to feel younger?
Do you want to have more energy?
Do you want to live a healthier life?
Aging is inevitable but aging health is optional.
Many times, patients are told that they may have a symptom because they are "getting old" or "have too much on their plate." Not at The Johnson Center.
Disease is NOT an inevitable part of aging. When we engage in healthy lifestyle choices we turn off the accelerated aging signals and turn on healthy signals that reduce inflammation, oxidative stress, and degeneration. Optimizing hormones and nutrition can maximize healthy lifestyle changes - so make the change now. It's never too late to restore your health and vitality.
Personalized medicine employs the latest scientific research, advances in biotechnology, and clinical preventive medicine to stop and reverse conditions associated with aging. Through preventive screenings, early disease detection, prompt intervention, optimal nutrition, and nutrigenomics functional/integrative physicians can help fight and reverse age-related disease and dysfunction.
Optimal Health Can Reverse the Aging Process even Alzheimer's Disease
Achieving and maintaining optimal health focuses on stopping and reversing the biological aging process by treating and preventing age-related disease on the molecular and cellular level. By addressing health at the biochemical level, the focus is on treating the cause of disease and not simply prescribing medication to mask symptoms.
The latest study shows that Alzheimer's Disease is the 3rd leading cause of death in the US and the leading cause of death in the United Kingdom. With the work of Dr. Dale Bredesen, who has spent the last 30 years in the lab doing research on Alzheimer's, Bredesen has proven that Alzeimer's can be preventive and in some cases reversible. Prevention should begin at age 45 and earlier if there is a family history. Dr. Bredesen recommends having a Cognoscopy. Physicians recommend having a Colonoscopy at age 50. A Cognoscopy should be done at age 45. Read more HERE about a cognoscopy.
Hormone Balance is Critical for Health
Fatigue, memory problems, headaches, emotional, and relationship issues are seen as 'normal' age related illnesses and are treated with prescription drugs to mask the symptoms. But aging does not have to mean loss of health.
The absence or imbalance of certain hormones has often been found to be the primary cause of such common patient complaints. With age, your body becomes less efficient in producing proper levels of natural hormones that are critical to the functioning of all major organs and vital body systems. Unhealthy life style, poor nutrition, stress, and toxins cause molecular stress inside your body and lead to serious hormonal imbalances.
By treating the hormonal deficiencies, patients can regain their health and vitality. Peri-menopausal women report tremendous improvement in their well-being, reduced depression and anxiety, better sleep, and weight loss. In both man and women, disorders improve, thinking improves, and personal relationships get better. Patients report dramatic results, regained health, and renewed vitality.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy uses hormones that are identical on the molecular level to the hormones in your body. Hormone levels are tested throughout the process to determine the proper balance. Anti-aging medicine emphasizes restoring hormones to normal, acceptable, healthy levels and returning your body to good health
Nutrition and Supplementation
Along with proper hormone balance, metabolic balance is crucial to your health, well-being, and optimal performance. The body must obtain and absorb the right nutrients to function properly and remain disease-free. Nutritional deficiencies and gut inflammation are often the underlying causes of serious and debilitating symptoms.
Most patients are not aware of nutrient deficiencies until symptoms occur. It is vital to now about low levels of amino acids, vitamins and minerals as they lead to the development of more serious conditions. For example, almost everyone is deficient in Vitamin D. Yet vitamin D plays a crucial role in concentration, memory, behavior, bones, weight, insulin sensitivity and many more.
Dr. Bruce Ames has long studied nutrition and published the Triage Theory. His research showed that if the body receives only the minimal requirements of nutrients such as magnesium and zinc, these nutrients will go for life-saving process only and not for DNA repair or longevity processes.
Anti-aging medicine emphasizes an integrative and holistic approach to treating the body and the mind. The focus is on health optimization and often combine a variety of methods to optimize the patients’ health
