Consultation Services: Anti-Aging & Functional Medicine

What is Conventional Medicine?

Anti Aging PhotoConventional or westernized medicine is the American standard practice of medicine. Conventional medicine connotes a high degree of credibility within the American social, economic and insurance structure. This standard has focused on the diagnosis of disease after it has occurred. 

What is Anti-Aging Medicine?

Anti-Aging medicine is a medical specialty field with scientific research focusing on the early detection, prevention, treatment, and reversal of diseased and age-related decline. It is well documented by peer-reviewed medical and scientific journals. The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine was established in 1997 as a professional physician certification and review board, which offers physician recognition in the form of specialty-based examination in Anti-Aging Medicine. It represents 12,500 physicians, scientists, health professionals, and the health minded public from 73 countries worldwide.  The anti-aging approach to medicine provides tools for assessing and improving the functional status of the individual before the onset of overt disease.

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine is a healthcare approach applying intergrative, science-based therapies to help promote wellness, focusing on the bio-chemically unique aspects of each patient, and then individually tailoring interventions to restore physiological, psychological, and structural balance. This approach emphasizes the cause of a symptom rather than the symptom itself.

Functional Medicine focuses on understanding the fundamental physiological processes, the environmental inputs, and the genetic predispositions that influence health and disease so that interventions are focused on treating the cause of the problem, not just masking the symptoms.
