What is anti-aging medicine?

Anti-aging medicine helps prevent and slow tissue degeneration and disease progression as you get older. You can’t escape the aging process, but there’s a great deal you can do to enjoy better health and an active life.

The Warehouse Primary Care & Specialty Clinic team uses functional medicine approaches to determine your risk of age-related health problems. That means looking at everything affecting your health, including your:

  • Diet
  • Work
  • Family medical history
  • Stress levels
  • Living environment
  • Sleep quality

With this information, your provider creates a personalized treatment plan that includes an effective range of anti-aging services.

Why would I need anti-aging medicine?

As you age, all the cells in your body deteriorate, some more than others. Your body produces lower quantities of hormones like estrogen (female sex hormone) and testosterone (male sex hormone). Your skin sags and wrinkles because it doesn’t have as much collagen.

Your bones weaken, injuries happen more easily, and it takes longer to heal. You might get more infections and find recovery takes longer. All your life experiences, from spending too long in the sun to drinking and smoking, start to catch up with you.

Mental sharpness can also decline, so you develop memory problems and slowed thinking. Fatigue is common in older age, as is insomnia, incontinence, and digestive issues like heartburn and constipation.

Your joints suffer from wear-and-tear that leads to osteoarthritis, and the discs in your spine dry and flatten (degenerative disc disease). You become less active and might struggle with things that once came easily, such as kneeling, balancing, and gripping.

Anti-aging medicine helps you avoid and delay the many challenges of getting older.
