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.
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:
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.
You’ve heard the phrase “you are what you eat” and also “let thy food be thy medicine.” Both resound true. A diet customized to your biology can help prolong healthy life. A consultation with Progressive Medical Center’s nutrition specialist can help you achieve the proper ratio between chronological age and biological age.
NAD+ is noted for its ability to boost energy, cognitive function, and end addiction. That is, you can support your DNA with NAD. Your metabolic age may drop with each NAD treatment. That means that the age of your internal cells are getting younger with each treatment. Ponce de Leon searched for the fountain of youth. It may not have been in Florida- it may have been already inside his cells: NAD.
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.

As we age, human’s naturally occurring stemcells do not divide at the same rate, thus we have fewer stemcells to trigger healing in the body. Healthy and ethically collected stemcells and their active ingredient exosomes can jumpstart the body to heal itself. We have seen remarkable regeneration of cartildge in the knee, hip joint pain disappear, and shoulders regain full range of motion. An injection of these cells tells the body “it’s time to repair this area,” and we’ve seen just that. An incredible alternative to surgery to repair joints and regain mobility.
Oxygen is essential for the body to repair itself. To deal with stress, to repair damage, to create energy (long-term). By super-saturating the body with oxygen, the body is better able to repair damage and to remove oxidative stress pollution.
Depending on your specific biology, the correct IV Therapy may help you restore your body to nutrient levels, amino acid levels, and mineral levels that it is lacking. Many times, IV’s kickstart the body’s healing process, as they are often more bioavailable than oral supplements.
