Anti-Aging Medicine at Wellness Architects
Hormones decline in all people as they age. Many physicians assume this is the natural way it should be. If a younger person were to be diagnosed as having a hormonal deficiency, it would be quickly corrected.
It has been shown that changes that occur through normal aging, including osteoporosis, muscle atrophy, sleep disorders, and decreased sociability are, in part, caused by a decrease in hormones. Aging, in men, is associated with reduced protein synthesis, decreased lean body mass, decreased bone mass, and increased body fat. Women who go through menopause will notice dramatic changes in skin thickness, texture, hydration, and tightness. Women who stop hormone therapy notice the same disturbing changes.
Studies have shown that loss of thyroid, estrogen, and testosterone hormones are responsible for this detrimental effect on the skin. The only way to treat and prevent changes in skin collagen, elastin, and prevent wrinkles is through hormone replacement therapy. Replenishment of hormones to physiological levels (optimal but within normal limits) has been shown to alleviate these age-relate changes. By fixing the proper hormonal levels, immunity is restored, and prevention of future diseases is achievable. Wellness Architects will help you prevent and treat the signs of aging. If you feel better on the inside, you will look better on the outside.
We use radiology and laboratory results to make the diagnosis and recommendations to start with a program designed only for each patient. In addition to measuring hormones, risk factors are evaluated, such as Cardiac CRP, PSA, DHT, Homocysteine, among others. Also, work on levels of Insulin, Glucose, and Glycocylated Hemoglobin, which are associated with diabetes.
