Anti-Aging Treatment: Therapy for a Prolonged Life
For thousands of years mankind has been fascinated with the concept of immortality, and how one can prolong his or her lifespan. Now, we are not here to tell you that you can live forever, but as Anti-Aging medical professionals who believe in the power of regenerative medicine, we feel compelled to tell our website readers that living longer is a scientifically viable concept in the modern day, and we want to tell you exactly how you can take advantage of anti-aging medical concepts to live a functional life into your later years, and maintain a healthier, happier quality of life.
Chronological vs. Biological Age
To understand the principles of anti-aging, it is important to understand the concept of chronological vs. biological age. The first one is straight forward; your chronological age is how old you are in years. When someone asks you how old you are, you respond with a certain number (I’m 45, or I’m 68 for example). This number is defined as your chronological age.
While biological age is not as mainstream, it is just as factual. Without going into too much detail, your biological age is essentially how old you are on a cellular level. So, with that said, what factors contribute to keeping you young and healthy from a biological aging perspective? Here are a few:
- Bone density
- Skin thickness and elasticity
- BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate)
and more. In order to ensure all of these factors measure at an optimal level, it is important that an individual eats health foods, exercises regularly, and focuses on reducing stressful factors associated with daily life. A consultation with Progressive Medical Center’s nutrition specialist can help you achieve the proper ratio between chronological age and biological age.
The World of Bioidental Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical hormones are hormones that are manufactured in a lab, and have the same molecular structure as those produced by your body. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is often used to treat low testosterone levels in men, and assist women in balancing their hormone levels as they age and go through menopause. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy allows Progressive Medical Center to develop a custom, individualized approach for each patient, which is created and monitored by our bioidentical hormone replacement therapy doctors.
