Ageless Program

AGELESS PROGRAM:

Looking your best
Feeling your best
 
Goal: To empower Women and Men to take control of their aging with balance, nature, and science. 
 
This program focuses on a functional medicine approach for both adult Women and Men, addressing the root cause of inflammation behind aging and weight gain. Below is an outline of what the Ageless Program might involve, keeping in mind that each component would be customized based on individual assessments:

1. Initial Comprehensive Assessment:

AGELESS QUESTIONNAIRE:

Comprehensive questionnaire to help us determine concerns, risks, and health goals. We take a functional medicine approach. This questionnaire is free. The cost to get the results is included in your Ageless Consultation.

AGELESS CONSULTATION:

In person Ageless visit. Review of Ageless questionnaire score and results. Physical assessment may include Blood pressure, Height and weight/ BMI. Waist to hip circumference ratio if needed. Lifestyle modifications/recommendations, supplements, Lab work, Tests, or prescriptions will be reviewed. $249.99. 1-2 hour appointment.

Testing:

Cellular Health Testing focuses on chronic inflammation and may include a baseline blood test including hormones, inflammatory markers: CRP, ESR, PCT, Ferritin, Fibrinogen, other markers, Comprehensive panels to check various health and bio markers, including complete blood count, lipid profile, liver and kidney function, inflammatory markers (like hs-CRP), hormone panels including thyroid (Free and Total T3 and T4 Reverse T3 and TSH), testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, cortisol, etc.may be included. Advanced testing like micronutrient analysis, allergy, mold, parasite, heavy metal/toxicity, food sensitivity, and gut health testing are optional and will be an extra cost and an EKG.

Cost:

$0. Other tests such as the DUTCH test, Hair test, Saliva tests, etc, are optional and will be extra. 

Ageless Report:

Review of lab/test results and lifestyle recommendations/prescriptions. $149.00. 1 hour appointment.

AGELESS MONITORING:

To maintain prescriptions a 15 minute virtual appointment is required every 3 months for the first 6 months then Q 6 months after.  These appointments are $50 and are required for your success. Lab tests or other tests may be required. 

  • Intake consultation: Detailed patient history, lifestyle factors, previous medical history, and specific aging, weight, and inflammation-related concerns.
  • Physical examination if needed: Vital signs, anthropometric measurements, and targeted physical exams.
  • Laboratory tests: Comprehensive panels to check various health and bio markers, including complete blood count, lipid profile, liver and kidney function, inflammatory markers (like hs-CRP), hormone panels (including thyroid, testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, cortisol, etc.), and possibly advanced testing like micronutrient analysis, allergy, mold, parasite, heavy metal/toxicity, food sensitivity, and gut health testing.

2. Hormone Assessment and Optimization:

Hormone Imbalance & Aging    

1. Skin & Hair Changes:

Declines in estrogen levels during menopause can lead to thinner skin, less collagen production, and reduced skin elasticity. Lower testosterone levels in men can lead to hair thinning or loss. Whereas excess estrogen in peri-menopause can lead to acne. 

2. Bone Density Reduction:

Lower levels of estrogen and testosterone can lead to reduced bone density, increasing the risk of osteoporosis.

3. Muscle Mass Decline:

 Growth hormone and testosterone play important roles in maintaining muscle mass. A decrease in these hormones with age can lead to, the age-related loss of muscle tissue.

 4. Metabolic Changes:
A decline in hormones like thyroid hormones or insulin sensitivity can result in slowed metabolism. weight gain, and an increased risk of metabolic syndromes. These conditions accelerate inflammation and aging.
5. Memory & Cognitive Effects:
Imbalances in hormones such as cortisol, estrogen, and thyroid hormones might impact memory and cognitive functions.
6. Mood & Mental Health:
Fluctuations in hormones, especially during events like menopause or andropause, can influence mood, leading to conditions like depression or anxiety.
7. Cardiovascular Effects:
Hormonal imbalances can lead to increased risk of cardiovascular diseases, with estrogen having a protective effect on the cardiovascular system.
  • Evaluation of hormone panels: Identifying imbalances or deficiencies that could impact weight, aging, and inflammation.
  • Hormone replacement therapy (BHRT): If clinically indicated, bio-identical HRT might be utilized to restore optimal hormonal balance.
  • Other anti-aging/wellness options: Evidence-based alternative anti-aging options such as Botox, Dermal Fillers, Topical treatments, peptides, exosomes, supplements, and other innovative anti-aging technologies will be offered if appropriate. 
  • Regular monitoring and adjustment: Follow-up assessments to ensure hormone levels are optimized according to the individual’s symptomatic response and lab results.

3. Weight Management Options:

  • Personalized nutrition plan: Tailoring a diet that considers any food sensitivities, nutritional deficiencies, and personal preferences, potentially integrating a Mediterranean diet approach, intermittent fasting, or other suitable dietary strategies.
  • Exercise regimen: A customized fitness program considering the individual’s health status, goals, and preferences. 
  • *This is an extra cost. 

4. Inflammation Evaluation/Testing and Management:

  • Ongoing evaluations: Regular testing to monitor inflammatory markers and identify triggers.
  • Personalized anti-inflammatory strategies: Tailored dietary recommendations (e.g., high in omega-3s, antioxidants), lifestyle changes, and possibly medication if clinically indicated.

5. Supplemental Support:

  • Custom supplementation plan: Based on lab results and individual needs, including possible supplements like:
  • Omega-3 fatty acids (for heart health, anti-inflammation)
  • Vitamin D and Calcium (bone health, immunity)
  • Coenzyme Q10 (heart health, energy)
  • Curcumin (anti-inflammatory)
  • Resveratrol (anti-aging)
  • Probiotics (gut health)
  • Review and adjustment: Regular review of the individual’s response to prescriptions or supplementation, with dosing adjustments as necessary.

6. Continuous Monitoring and Support:

  • Regular follow-up consultations: To track progress with the program components, make necessary adjustments, and provide support.
  • Access to educational resources: providing information on maintaining optimal health, including workshops, blogs, webinars, or literature.
  • This program does not replace your family Doctor or Specialist. Regular visits with your family Doctor or Specialist are advised.
