Anti-Aging

The Role of Antiaging Medicine and BHRT

Anti-Aging & the role of Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy at the cellular level helps thwart cell death, which results in the cells aging less rapidly. When your cells thrive, they fend off disease and heal after environmental, surgical, traumatic, and even naturally occurring insults with relative ease. This is the basics of Anti-aging. Anti-aging medicine is a clinical/medical specialty and a field of scientific research aimed at the early detection, prevention, treatment, and even reversal of age-related decline. It is well documented by peer-reviewed and scientific journals, and employs evidence-based methodologies to conduct patient assessments and the formulation of comprehensive treatment plans.

With the above in mind, it becomes clear that a multifaceted approach must be used to assimilate and strengthen the diverse and complex aspects of the body. Mental clarity and emotional wellbeing are one of the major aspects of true health. If our bodies are in great shape but our minds are not, a vital aspect of achieving optimal health is lost. Our formulas and approach toward the body and mind impact a broad area so that aging, disease, surgical recovery, healing, and emotional well being are optimized. The vitamins, trace minerals, amino acids, and various other synergistic nutrients and anti-oxidants within our formulas form the basis of True Health – the health of the whole person inside and out.

However, when the body’s signals (e.g. hormones) are not balanced, or are low, the stimulus to utilize these nutrients is significantly reduced or even absent. This fact is exactly why we at Affinity thoroughly test and analyze your hormone levels to diagnose and formulate a comprehensive treatment plan utilizing bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) specific to you. By doing this we can recreate that precise balance of hormones that should otherwise exist naturally, or at least did exist in young adulthood. Detoxification or elimination of elements that speed up the aging process, followed by fortification and maintenance is the long-term approach to healing the whole person, living disease-free, and living a productive rewarding life. Our approach, using cutting edge cellular nutrient fortification to feed your cells and BHRT to help power your cells, brings you to Optimal Health and Healing.

By combining Anti-aging Nutrition and Medicine, longevity and a disease-free life are now more than ever within reach!

Treatments at Affinity Wellness 4 Life

At Affinity Wellness 4 Life we provide a comprehensive approach by evaluating your concerns and goals, and analyzing personal questionnaires and blood work results to eventually formulate an individualized treatment plan utilizing bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), optimization of nutritional status, dietetics and, exercise coaching. The use of “bio-identical hormones” is critical to our success because BHRT replaces what is missing from the body with the exact identical chemical compound (e.g. hormones); therefore keeping the therapy more physiologically safe and sound – as compared to older methods of hormone replacement therapy, which utilize synthetic chemically, altered non-identical hormones.
There are six critical hormone balances that are affected as you age: human growth hormone, testosterone, progesterone, estrogen, thyroid hormones, and cortisol. Human growth hormone is kind of the master’s switch hormone regulating the healthy growth and maintenance of essentially all tissues in and of the body. Testosterone, although considered a “male” hormone, is important for woman because it provides muscle tone, strong bones, a healthy libido, balanced mood, and energy. Progesterone provides youthful, cheerful, calming, steady, well-balanced, and fertile features to the body. Estrogen is responsible for those sexy, fertile, strong, determined, and voluptuous characteristics of being a woman. Thyroid hormones are responsible for regulating all metabolic functions and energy production in the body and brain. Cortisol gives you energy, helps you handle stress, and enables you to be quick and active. Everything you do including thoughts, feelings, emotions, physical growth and maintenance, and childbearing is influenced by hormones. Thus proactively educating yourself about them, being familiar with signs and symptoms of hormonal imbalance, and finally managing them are as crucial as anything else you do for your health and well-being. Proper nutrition and exercise are indeed important, but without the critical hormonal balance they will do little to benefit. If you are tired or depressed, have difficulty losing weight, diminished libido and/or zest for life, or if you are a woman who has irregular menstrual cycles, then you have symptoms suggestive of hormone imbalance.
