AGE REVERSAL THROUGH ANTI-AGING & REGENERATIVE MEDICINE

Have you ever wondered how actors and entertainers continue to look young and fresh and have amazing bodies despite the fact that they are aging? It's not simply skin deep (i.e. plastic surgery and fillers) and it's also not that they have great family genetics. Many of these entertainers have found their fountain of youth in an Anti-aging and Regenerative Physician. This rare specialist reverses aging from within the body. This is done through the use of bio-identical hormones supplementation and rebalancing hormone levels to those of healthy 25-year-olds.

Getting older is a fact of life. For whatever reason, humans reach their optimal physical peak around the age 25. From that point on, we slowly lose muscle mass, body tone, and bone mass. We also lose skin elasticity, develop fine lines, and become afflicted with sagging and loose skin. Furthermore, women start to pack on pounds of fat around their thighs, hips, and stomachs. Men pack on fat around their stomachs and chest making them appear as if they have breasts. As we pushed into our 30s and beyond, our sex drive, libido, performance, and satisfaction also decline.
Now, these are some of the obvious external changes that come with aging. What's happening on the inside of the body is much worse. As we age, our bones become brittle, our tissues dry out, our muscles become as stringy as beef jerky, our arteries harden and clog, and our minds become demented.

So, what is going on in the body at age 25 that is responsible for the best physique we will ever have? First, we need to discuss some basic biochemistry and physiology to understand what is happening with our enviable 25-year-old body. One of the major answers to this question is hormones. We need to understand what hormones do and how important they are for keeping us physically fit, sexually charged, mentally sharp, and emotionally stable.

Hormones are produced in different parts of the body. They are made in the brain, thyroid and parathyroid glands in the neck, in and around the kidneys, the liver, the pancreas, in the ovaries, in the testicles, as well as other places in the body. Hormones are substances that are responsible for building muscle, breaking down fat, maintaining proper skin thickness and elasticity, maintaining strong and thick bones, and producing sexual desire, sexual performance, and sexual satisfaction.

Hormones also play major roles in maintaining immunity, fighting infection, controlling blood sugar, keeping arteries free from clots, reducing risk of heart attack and stroke, as well as reducing risk of cancer. Proper and balanced hormone levels keep us emotionally well, mentally calm, confident, and focused. Hormones also contribute immensely to proper sleep quality and sleep quantity.

In a nutshell, hormones are responsible for practically every aspect of our physical, emotional, and psychological well-being. Without proper hormone levels or proper balance of the various hormones, we can expect the typical changes that accompany growing older.



WHO CAN HELP CORRECT YOUR HORMONAL DEFICIENCIES AND IMBALANCES?

Most people find that conventional medical care providers fail to address these changes that we associate with the natural progression of aging. Some individuals may engage the assistance of alternative medical practitioners but often find too many of them ineffective.

It is of paramount importance that you choose a medical doctor educated and experienced in the principles of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine. You want a physician who utilizes the most-proven clinical treatments from various types of medicine practiced around the world. You want a physician who uses the latest, best and safest therapies from Ayurvedic Medicine (from India), Naturopathic Medicine (plant-based therapies), Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and Allopathic Medicine (United States & European Medicine). Only a physician board-certified in Anti-aging and Regenerative Medicine will be able to provide you with the right tools and knowledge to properly reverse aging.

An Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medical doctor determines the root of disease and dysfunction through detailed and intensive questionnaires, in-depth physical exam, and cutting-edge detailed lab testing. With that information, he's able to properly treat age-associated changes.

With this website we will educate you on how to achieve optimal health, physique, and function. We will show you how to fix things you know are already broken and help you to discover things about yourself you didn't realize needed repair.

 

 

 

What can Anti-Aging & Regenerative Medicine do for you?

REJUVENATE YOUR HORMONES BACK TO THE LEVELS OF YOUR TWENTIES

With our techniques and use of bio-identical hormones we can bring your vital hormones back to their healthy levels when you were in your 20s. These changes can help you look younger, lose body fat, increase muscle, enhance body tone, have more energy, increase mental sharpness, balance your mood, you feel and look a lot more sexy, and improve your sexual performance.

IDENTIFY AND REDUCE YOUR RISK FACTORS FOR HEART ATTACK AND STROKE

We can help you identify with cutting-edge laboratory panels how at risk you are for cardiovascular disease, heart attack, and stroke. We use an extensive set of special laboratory tests to unveil your independent risk factors for developing clots and plaques in your arteries. We also provide you with information regarding your genetic predisposition to cardiovascular diseases. With this information in hand, we can help you reduce the causes of inflammation leading to atherosclerosis, heart disease, heart attack, and stroke. More information

IDENTIFY AND REDUCE YOUR RISK FACTORS FOR CANCER

We can show you with state-of-the-art lab tests what's going on in your body that could increase your risk of cancer. Cancer may be caused or accelerated by agents or processes that increase inflammation in your body. Examples include toxic heavy metals, silent infections, as well as a host of dangerous and harmful chemicals in our environment that produce free radicals causing oxidation of our tissues. Oxidation is a process that damages all body tissues (organs, skin, and arteries) and may lead to premature aging. With this information, we can help reduce inflammation and other processes that increase risk of developing cancer. More information

 

HELP FIX YOUR DIGESTIVE PROBLEMS

We can show you why you want to have your gut evaluated for digestive problems. Even the fittest of people often have chronic stomach pain, excessive gas, and poor ability to digest and absorb food. Many people also suffer from unexplained generalized pain, headaches, and fatigue. Gastrointestinal issues often are commonly at the bottom of this. We will show you how to fix your gut (stomach and intestinal health) and how to clean it up. Your ability to properly digest and absorb food relies upon optimal gut function. When you have poor levels of good bacteria and high levels of bad bacteria, your ability to absorb vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients suffers. When you have too much yeast in your gut, you may suffer from widespread aches and pains and feel extremely fatigued. Many people with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome greatly benefit from correction of gastrointestinal function. More information

 

IMPROVE YOUR MOOD, ENERGY, SLEEP, AND FEELINGS OF CONTENT

We can reveal how imbalances in your neurotransmitters affect the quality of your life. Neurotransmitters are natural substances produced by your nerves and control all things that determine your physical, mental, and emotional health. Imbalances can lead to depression, anxiety, chronic fatigue, sleep disorders, reduced mental sharpness, addiction, decreased sex drive and performance, exacerbation of diabetes, poor appetite control, and reduced pain tolerance. Once we know which neurotransmitters are deficient and which are excessive, we can make appropriate recommendations in how to correct and stabilize them. More information

 

HELP IDENTIFY IMMUNE SYSTEM PROBLEMS, SILENT AUTOIMMUNE CONDITIONS, AND HELP LOCATE THEIR CAUSES

Your immune system keeps you safe from foreign invaders like bad bacteria, yeast, viruses, and parasites. However, sometimes your immune system confuses your own tissues with these foreign invaders. This results in an auto-immune attack. When these events occur, your body may destroy tissues in the joints (i.e. rheumatoid arthritis), the GI tract (i.e. ulcerative colitis & Crohn's Disease), the thyroid gland (i.e. hypothyroid disease), the pancreas (i.e. diabetes), the heart, nerves, bones, testicles and ovaries. With very specialized cutting-edge test panels we help identify if you have any autoimmune processes happening in your body. With this information, we may help guide you how to reduce the autoimmune response and slow down tissue and organ destruction. More information

 

IMPROVING SEXUAL ABILITY AND PLEASURE IN WOMEN

A frequent complaint of many women includes loss of sexual appetite, loss of ability to enjoy sex, as well as a loss of orgasmic pleasure. Conventional doctors usually completely miss the mark on this one and just never ask their female patients about these issues or have nothing to offer those few and brave women who mention these incredibly significant concerns.

Our approach involves asking each female patient many questions about her psychological, social, medical, family, and medication (including prior hormone use) history. We also perform comprehensive lab tests to determine if she has deficiencies or relative imbalances of all hormones related to sexual appetite, libido, function, and orgasmic pleasure. Important hormones relating to these issues include testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, thyroid, pregnenolone, oxytocin, and others. With detailed and accurate information, we can provide an individualized and custom-tailored hormone replacement program for each female patient. Our goal is fantastic sex and much more of it!

 

PROPERLY TREATING SYMPTOMS OF PERIMENOPAUSE & MENOPAUSE

Women entering perimenopause note that their periods become more irregular, more infrequent, and are often accompanied by hot flashes, tender breasts, as well as vaginal dryness and irritation. The symptoms and complaints follow major declines in their production of estrogen and progesterone.
In their attempt to treat perimenopause, conventional doctors place women on synthetic estrogen and synthetic progesterone that are structurally different from the natural estrogen and progesterone women produce. In fact, most women do not know that Premarin (comes from "Pregnant Mare Urine") is made from estrogen drawn from the urine of pregnant horses (yes, horses). This estrogen is perfectly fine for a horse. However, women should not take this type of estrogen as it is structurally different from human estrogen. Premarin increases risk of blood clots, stroke, dementia, and cancer of the uterus.

Our approach to perimenopause involves supplementing women with bio-identical estrogen and progesterone that perfectly matches the structure, function, and metabolism of estrogen and progesterone naturally produced by the human body. The goal is to fine tune and replenish the lost estrogen and progesterone so that significant relief occurs.

 

IMPROVING SEXUAL PERFORMANCE AND PLEASURE IN MEN

Aging men frequently complain of withering libido and faltering sexual ability. Conventional doctors usually offer Viagra to their male patients. This often does not correct the causes of these problems and may, in fact, result in significant and unsafe drops in blood pressure-especially if these men take blood pressure medication. Our approach involves having men answer a comprehensive questionnaire and undergo comprehensive laboratory tests to determine the underlying causes. Men with sexual issues could have any combination of hormonal deficiencies (i.e. low testosterone, excessive estrogen), psychological and social issues with their partners, narrowed blood vessels, diabetes, and a host of other reasons for sexual problems.
With this information in hand, we may prescribe men bio-identical testosterone, reduce excess estrogen with medication and/or supplements, and help them with psychological and social issues affecting the quality of their relationships.

 

OUR GOAL IS TO ADD YEARS TO YOUR LIFE WHILE REDUCING FAT AND WRINKLES

WE STRIVE TO BRING OUR PATIENTS' HORMONE LEVELS AND BALANCE TO THOSE OF HEALTHY 25-YEAR-OLDS

Do you remember when you were at your prime in your 20s and had the best and sexiest body? Can you recall how great you felt and how you could run circles around your friends on the basketball court, pump ridiculous amounts of weight at the gym, and bike or jog for hours without any problem? Do you remember how many times a week you had incredible sex? Hopefully, you actually experienced some of these things in your youth. For those of you who did not, you may have been suffering all along from deficient and unbalanced hormone levels even in your 20s.

Our approach has always been to maintain the body's physiology, biochemistry and hormone levels as those found in healthy 25-year-old men and women. We supplement you with the proper amounts of all major hormones so that you feel and look much better on the inside and outside. We monitor your labs to make sure that your hormone levels are within proper range and are most optimal for you. We fine-tune and custom tailor the optimum hormone levels for you based upon improvement in your symptoms and labs. What's statistically relevant to a large group of people cannot be applied to what's best for the individual.

You could compare our approach to that used for prescribing glasses for near-sighted vision. Your eye doctor wants you to see 20/20. The eye doctor, however, needs to give a different prescription to each person because his/her near-sighted vision is caused by different amounts of eyeball elongation. The same approach is used with optimum individualized hormone balancing. Each individual will need different amounts of different hormones to obtain the best and most optimal hormone levels.

 

WE USE BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONES THAT YOUR BODY RECOGNIZES AS THE SAME AS THOSE IT NATURALLY PRODUCES

Hormones work in the body with things called hormone receptors that may be found on practically every cell in the body. Hormones and the hormone receptor fit like a lock and key. Synthetic and some animal-derived hormones (i.e. estrogen from Premarin) do not have the identical shape and structure as the naturally-produced hormones in the body. These foreign hormones (like Premarin) do not necessarily interact appropriately with all the receptors in the body and are converted (metabolized) in the body into shapes and structures that the body has difficulty getting rid of.

 

WE PROVIDE YOU WITH THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER AND UNIQUE CONCIERGE LONGEVITY MEDICAL PRACTICE

There are few concierge medical practices in Los Angeles. Most of these practices still use standard and archaic means to address your concerns. These typical practices diagnose you with a list of symptoms and then send you on your way with pharmaceuticals as a form of chemical Band-Aid. They do not treat the underlying causes of your symptoms. You don't get better – just medicated.

For example, you may present to these conventional doctors with complaints of years' worth of constant fatigue and sluggishness. They might draw some limited labs, claim those labs are "within normal limits," tell you "you're just getting older," and then send you on your way with an anti-depressant like Zoloft. We are pretty sure that you don't have a Zoloft deficiency. You may, however, have a hormonal deficiency in any one or combination of various vital hormones (i.e. Thyroid, Testosterone, Cortisol, Growth Hormone, and others). Your fatigue may be caused by improper bacterial balance in your gut leading to nutritional deficiencies or may result from neurotransmitter deficiency/imbalance. It could be a combination of all of these things.

We use a functional medical approach to assess and treat your concerns and medical conditions. We treat the underlying causes – not simply put a blanket over the fire without determining what continues to start those fires.

We also use the most clinically proven methods derived from all forms of respected medicine practiced around the world. We draw from the latest, best and safest therapies from Ayurvedic Medicine (from India), Naturopathic Medicine (plant-based therapies), Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and Allopathic Medicine (United States & European Medicine).
