Anti-Aging Q&A

What is anti-aging medicine?

Conventional medicine is based on a disease treatment model. Anti-aging medicine focuses on using preventive strategies to slow the aging process and discourage or delay the onset of disease.

At the Comprehensive Center for Women’s Medicine, the team implements the tools, technology, research, and transformations in healthcare that help prevent, detect and treat diseases associated with aging.

You have access to innovative diagnostic tools, such as the use of genetic and nutrigenomic testing, comprehensive hormonal evaluation, intracellular vitamin, mineral, micronutrient, and oxidative stress assessment, as well as evaluation of your toxic load. This helps the providers develop personalized treatment options for you so you can live the healthiest life, no matter what your age.

Anti-aging medicine combines the best of preventive lifestyle practices with state-of-the-art aesthetic medical treatments, so you look and feel your best.

What is genetic and nutrigenomic testing?

At the Comprehensive Center for Women’s Medicine, the team offers the ground-breaking Weight Management Genetic Test. This test identifies the genes that are significant modifiers of body weight and responsiveness to diet and exercise. The test involves taking a sample of cells using a swab inside your cheek, which is then sent to a laboratory.

The test determines if your body is more sensitive to fats, carbohydrates, or both. It also helps determine just the right level of exercise for you to burn the most calories. The results of the test help the providers customize an appropriate lifestyle program for you.

They also utilize Regener8, a revolutionizing real-time nutritional analysis using sophisticated testing algorithms to piece together the health status of an individual. The nutritional epigenetic health status is assessed using proprietary methods that include assessing the deficiencies in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids and fatty acids as compared with defined normal ranges from healthy individuals.  All it takes are a few hairs and a week later the doctors are able to fully customize your daily intake of organic superfoods.

What is involved in medical weight loss?

One of the simplest methods of enhancing longevity is optimization of one’s weight and daily physical activity.

The Comprehensive Center for Women’s Medicine offers a patient-centered, personalized approach to attaining and maintaining a healthy weight.  Through comprehensive medical evaluation and regular visits, which may at times utilize the telemedicine model, you will achieve far more than just losing pounds on the scale. Our program helps you lose unhealthy fat while maintaining lean muscle. It completely reframes your relationship with food. It focuses on changing habits through lifestyle modification and ultimately attenuates and possibly even reverses many chronic conditions associated with aging.     

The program is based on daily consumption of nine servings of low glycemic, anti-inflammatory organic fruits and vegetables and clean animal protein as well as medical foods and dietary supplements when indicated, to improve its effectiveness. The medical foods address the unique nutritional needs of patients with specific health concerns and are customized based on nutrigenomic testing, while the supplements provide targeted nutritional support.  As we correct the nutritional deficiencies, the customized organic medical superfood formula may need to be changed and nutrigenomic testing every three to four months is therefore recommended.

The doctors emphasize the importance of daily physical activity and work with you on your individual exercise prescription, sometimes collaborating with the city’s most respected personal trainers.
