Americans are living in a country that has 50 times more toxins than other developed countries. Even though we are operating at a deficit, disease is not inevitable. In fact, many diseases and chronic illnesses are preventable when nutrition, hormones, and overall health and wellness are brought into balance.
The mind is a very powerful tool, and your belief in the interconnectedness of your body will impact your ability to make age-related disease prevention work for you. Maintaining good health is possible. Regaining good health is within reach. Through the services offered by the Longevity Health Institute, you can:
Functional medicine is the practice of addressing the underlying causes of disease through a patient-centered approach. Instead of treating symptoms alone, your practitioner wants to know about your lifestyle, diet, environment, stress levels, and more. So many factors affect how your body behaves, how sick it gets, or how well it can heal.
Talking is a big part of functional medicine. It is through conversation and honesty that the practitioner of functional medicine learns more about the source of your symptoms, identifies the root causes of your affliction, and works toward eliminating your problems, rather than just covering up symptoms.
There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to medicine. Yes, you may have symptoms in common with other patients, but your body is a unique being. Through personalized medicine, your treatment is customized to you based on your age, race, gender, lifestyle, environment, genes, and more.
Along with being focused on wellness, personalized medicine is also focused on disease prevention. You may not be sick or feeling unwell, but testing can determine if you are at risk for developing medical conditions like cancer, diabetes, dementia, or Parkinson’s disease. What good is it to know what could happen to your health in the future? Interventions, products, and practices can be tailored for you alone to help prevent you from potentially developing a serious disease.
Who doesn’t want to feel good all the time? If you could find a way to help your body function at its full potential, wouldn’t you? The goal of preventive medicine is to keep your body healthy and disease-free. Through preventive measures, you can boost your immunity, energy, and overall function, recovery, and health of your body.
Disease prevention and optimum health can be achieved through a variety of preventive medicine methods, including:
Have you ever wished you could see inside your body and understand exactly why you’re feeling the way you do? Before undergoing medical treatment at the Longevity Health Institute, the origin of your ailment must first be discovered so it can be treated at its core. With the right kind of personalized medical treatment, your symptoms will not be covered up; rather, you will target a problem right at its source.
The following medical treatments care for the whole person and are long-lasting, without creating difficult side effects from treatment (which is often the case with traditional medical treatment alone):
No one ever thinks aging will happen to them. When you’re young, you feel like you’ll be that way forever. But aging is a very real fact of life. Whether you choose to age gracefully or fight the inevitable, the healthiest way to get older is with the help of anti-aging medicine. Early detection, treatment, and reversal of age-related afflictions has been made possible by advanced scientific and medical technologies. If you want to live a longer, healthier, independent life, consider the following interventions:
Athletes are often considered some of the healthiest people around because they spend so much time exercising and training their bodies. However, there is a danger of over-training. Strenuous exercise that is not accompanied by recovery can create a multitude of health conditions.
One of the biggest problems among athletes can be found in the digestive system where there can be a permeability issue with the intestinal lining. This leaky gut syndrome leads to malabsorption of minerals and vitamins. This interruption of normal functions creates issues when trying to recover from endurance, high-intensity workouts, game play, or athletic competitions.
To maintain gut stability, athletes need restorative treatment, which includes rest, time for recovery, and an excellent nutritional plan for good digestive health.
