Anti-Aging medicine is founded on the application of advanced scientific and medical technologies for the early detection, prevention, treatment, and reversal of age-related dysfunction, disorders, and diseases.
Healthy aging is what many of us want.
What is healthy aging medicine?
In addition to the modern diagnostic testing that science has brought to us to help detect early disease, like colonoscopy, bone density testing and pap smears, healthy aging medicine from a naturopathic perspective, involves addressing the causes of rapid aging. The single most fundamental factor causing rapid aging is an overabundance of inflammatory chemicals in the body.
What are the symptoms of rapid aging?
Anyone who is over 40 years old knows what the symptoms of aging are. Inappropriate fatigue, declining memory, body pain and stiffness, over-fatness, insomnia, and weakness, to name a few, are symptoms of unhealthy aging and can absolutely be improved upon primarily by decreasing the inflammation in our bodies.
What diagnostic tests do we use?
- Hormone Testing
- Inflammatory Markers
- Essential Fatty Acid Testing

How do I know if it’s working?
You will feel better within a short period of time (days to weeks).
Will I live longer?
Perhaps you will. The goal is to live healthfully. To feel more energetic and flexible without the aches and pains, stronger, cognitively sharper with better memory and hopefully happier.
