Aging & Longevity
As we age, health complications and breakdowns can occur in life. We believe Western Medicine is appropriate to take care of serious health problems. If one does not have these serious consequences we feel we have a sensible natural based methodology to keep one fit and healthy and only resorting to Western Medicine in the worst case scenarios.
Who can join our Aging and Longevity program? People of all ages! Age is not a factor-you can be young or old! You may be "healthy" and interested in on-going prevention or you may be suffering from a condition which you would like to reverse for better living.
The test and treatments we use at our clinic can be key tools to manage the processes and risks of aging and maintain a "Good Quality of Life" We are continually researching and reviewing new technologies and natural therapies to add to our medical tool kit. We strive at our Clinic to bring the most effective and least invasive measurements and therapies to help maintain our patients at there peak performance with the least reliance on prescription drugs.
Call us today to learn how we assess your health needs and apply our therapies to the care and feeding of your body:
Diabetes can lead to serious complications, amputation, kidney failure and premature death. Diabetics have a 2 to 4 times greater risk of death due to heart disease.
Type-2 Diabetes or adult-onset diabetes accounts for about 90% to 95% of all diagnosed cases of diabetes. It usually begins as insulin resistance, a disorder in which cells do not use insulin properly. As need for insulin rises, the pancreas gradually loses its ability to produce it. Type-2 Diabetes is associated with older age, obesity, and family history of diabetes.
Many people with Type-2 Diabetes can control their blood glucose by following a healthy meal plan and exercise program, losing weight and taking medication.
Pre-diabetes is a condition that raises the risk of developing Type-2 Diabetes, heart disease and stroke. People with pre-diabetes have blood glucose levels higher than normal but not high enough to be classified as diabetes. A study in 2000 showed an estimated 41 million people age 40 - 74 had pre-diabetes based on blood glucose tests of 100 - 125 mg/dl.
At our clinic we have considerable experience in dealing with this complex syndrome and we believe a pre-emptive program of diabetes prevention is a prudent action to prevent more serious health consequences.
We employ a multidimensional approach to control the development of this disease before you have to resort to medication. Base on Medical history, Metabolic Assessment Questionare and Blood Chemistry results.
