Anti-Aging Medicine Q & A

What is anti-aging medicine?

Anti-aging medicine involves helping you live a healthier and longer life through personalized and customized medicine. The phrase “anti-aging” relates to the application of advanced biomedical diagnostic and treatment therapies that focus on early detection, prevention, and treatment of age-related diseases.

Anti-aging medicine is based on proven principles of complementary and alternative medicine, as well as western medicine therapies. Methods involve caring for you as a whole person, rather than treating a specific concern, condition, or symptom.

Why does risk of chronic disease increase with age?

As you age, metabolic processes start slowing down or failing, although each cell and each organ ages at a different rate.

Many issues and chronic diseases associated with aging are related to decreased hormone levels, which is why your anti-aging practitioner is likely to start monitoring your hormone levels beginning with your first appointment. Risk of chronic diseases also increases with age due to:

  • Cell oxidation and increase in free radicals
  • Increased cell and tissue wear and tear
  • Decreased ability of cells to repair and recover
  • Decreased immune function

Although you can’t stop aging from occurring, you can work to slow down the degradation of cells and decrease your risk of developing chronic diseases — including heart disease — through anti-aging medicine care.

Which treatments are included in my anti-aging medicine plan?

As anti-aging medicine experts, Dr. Torabi and Dr. Barseghian strive to diagnose and detect early warning signs of chronic diseases through laboratory testing, physical examinations, and imaging (if needed). They can also help you better manage any conditions you may have.

Depending on your overall health and any underlying issues or concerns, your anti-aging medicine plan could include:

  • Diet and nutrition counseling
  • Customized weight-loss plans
  • Hormone replacement therapy
  • Exercise and activity planning
  • Dietary supplement counseling

Since the focus of anti-aging medicine involves improved overall wellness and preventive care, no two treatment plans are the same: you’re treated as an individual.
