What is Anti-Aging Medicine?
- Anti-aging medicine is an extension of preventive health care
- Anti-aging medicine is based on early detection, prevention, and reversal of diseases
If you have had your cholesterol tested, taken a lipid-lowering drug, had a mammogram, or taken HRT with
thyroid, testosterone, estrogen, melatonin, or DHEA, you have experienced anti-aging medicine.

90% of all adult illness is due to the degenerative processes of aging. This includes heart disease, most cancers,
adult-onset diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, autoimmune disease, glaucoma, and
With early detection and appropriate intervention,
most of these diseases can be prevented,
cured, or have their downward course reversed!
A growing body of clinical studies point to declining hormone levels as a key factor in the aging process. Studies
show us that hormone therapy can support good health as we age. Benefits include helping maintain bone and
muscle strength, improved vitality and memory, healthier skin, and even a more youthful appearance:

Hormones are powerful chemical messengers produced by your body that tell your cells what to do, and regulate every organ and
major body system. Hormones affect everything from your ability to fall asleep, to your mood, thinking ability, cholesterol level,
response to stress, depression, osteoporosis, coronary artery disease, and loss of libido. Basically, the speed at which you age.

By the time a woman enters menopause, she may already have experienced two decades of hormonal imbalance. After menopause, when
all her hormone levels decrease significantly, risk of major diseases increases. These include:

Heart disease - Rates of heart disease in postmenopausal women gradually climb until they equal the rates typically seen among men.
According to the American Heart Association, coronary heart disease is the leading killer of American women (American Heart Association

Osteoporosis - Hormone deficiencies are clearly associated with bone loss and osteoporosis, beginning even in the third decade of life.
By the time a woman reaches 50, her risk of an osteoporotic bone fracture is significantly increased.

Alzheimer's and dementia - Loss of hormones is associated with neurodegeneration and increased risk of dementia, such as
Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease.

Many physicians accept diminished hormone levels as an inevitable consequence of aging and dismiss the anti-aging benefits of restoring
youthful hormone levels. However, research indicates that, in addition to relieving menopausal symptoms, optimizing hormone levels can
benefit conditions such as osteoporosis, depression, fatigue, and excess weight. Among the most important hormones for women to monitor
and balance are free estrogen, testosterone, and DHEA.
