Age Management Medicine

Every 13 year old wants to grow up quickly and hit the important milestones waiting in the future, but every 40, 50, and 60  year old realizes that aging comes with its fair share of challenges. At MindBodySpirit Care, Dr. Shemesh understands the health challenges that arise with age, which is why he offers age management medicine to all of his patients.

What Is Age Management Medicine?

Age management medicine is a proactive, preventative approach to healthcare for adults who are committed to maintaining their health and wellness as they age. Hormone therapy, nutrition, exercise, stress management, and lifestyle choices are all evaluated and adjusted with age management medicine to preserve optimum function and quality of life. As a result, age management medicine has the power to slow the progression of degenerative aging and disease. The key here is being proactive rather than reactive!

The Tenets of Age Management Medicine

When you turn to MindBodySpirit Care for your age management medicine, you will enhance your health proactively rather than waiting for age-related diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure to appear. The key tenets of this process include hormone therapy, nutrition optimization, customized exercise, and lifestyle changes to decrease risk factors for disease.

One important component of age management medicine is the evaluation of hormone levels and use of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to help the body remain in balance as it ages. Hormone levels naturally diminish as you age, leaving the body deficient in the most essential hormones like estrogen, testosterone, thyroid, DHEA, and cortisol. Since each hormone plays specific roles in creating a synergistic environment in the body, using hormone therapy to restore their optimal levels is a powerful way to prevent signs of aging and disease.

In addition to rejuvenating your hormone levels, Dr. Shemesh will also help you adopt the best nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle habits. Nutrient-dense foods, holistic supplements, therapeutic yoga, stress management, cardiovascular exercise, resistance training, and other strategies will all help you enhance your wellness and slow or stop the progression of disease.  

How Will You Benefit From Age Management Medicine?

There are many benefits of age management medicine. You can expect to feel more energy and less fatigue, improved sex drive and performance, decreased risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and other serious ailments, and even healthier brain function and prevention of dementia. Furthermore, age management medicine is known to maintain bone strength, improve body composition, and support a general feeling of well-being.
