Conventional physicians are unreasonably cynical about anti-aging treatments and believe that drugs and surgery are the best ways to battle age-related disease. While these tools can save lives in an emergency, they cannot prevent disease or promote health, well-being, or longevity.
At the Whitaker Wellness Institute, we define anti-aging medicine as the use of safe, effective therapies that address the underlying mechanisms of aging. Our goal is not to prolong life to some unrealistically advanced age, but to promote successful aging—staying healthy and functional up to the end of a long, productive life. We focus on proven therapies that prevent or minimize age-related diseases. These treatments include targeted nutritional supplements, diet and exercise, and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, as well as more intensive modalities such as EECP, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and chelation.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Natural or bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is the essence of anti-aging medicine. By restoring your body’s hormone levels to those of a young adult, you are taking one giant step away from the aging process. At the Whitaker Wellness Institute, our physicians are well-versed in the safe use of bioidentical estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid, and growth hormone to boost energy, vitality, and libido, as well as to lower risk of heart disease, osteoporosis, and a multitude of other degenerative diseases.
Oral and IV Nutrients
During your stay at the Back to Health Program, your Whitaker Wellness physician will design a comprehensive nutritional supplement program, another key to retarding aging. Because free radical damage is implicated in a range of diseases, including atherosclerosis, hypertension, Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, and Parkinson’s disease, we include high-dose antioxidants—both oral and intravenous. Additional nutrients the Whitaker Wellness physicians recommend, in doses appropriate for each patient, are B-complex vitamins, resveratrol, phosphatidylserine and other brain-boosting elements, as well as a handful of supplements that address sexual health.
EECP and Chelation
Because age takes a toll on the cardiovascular system, an all-inclusive anti-aging treatment program must address heart health. Enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP) and EDTA chelation do just this. EECP is a noninvasive treatment that improves arterial function and stimulates the growth of collateral circulation, or new blood vessels around blocked arteries. EDTA chelation removes toxic metals and helps restores the health of the arteries. The end result of both of these therapies is a dramatic improvement in circulation and delivery of health-enhancing oxygen and nutrients.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) works on multiple fronts to retard aging. It curbs infection, promotes the growth of new capillaries, boosts collagenformation, and perhaps most important, mobilizes stem cells. Stem cells, which reside in the bone marrow, have the unique ability to transform into a variety of cell types. Just one HBOT treatment doubles concentrations of circulating stem cells, and a full course increases them eight-fold. HBOT benefits virtually every organ in the body. It boosts brain function, helps regenerate nerves, speeds healing, and even improves the skin.
If you could bottle the health-enhancing, anti-aging effects of exercise, you’d have the most powerful therapy known to medicine. The Whitaker Wellness Institute’s professional staff will personalize a safe and effective program of aerobic and strengthening exercises that will improve your overall health.
We’ll also help you get your diet on track. Insulin resistance, diabetes, and obesity are very common co-conditions of aging. Adopting an appropriate diet and losing weight can add years to your life and life to your years. During our Back to Health Program, you will be served delicious, nutrient-rich meals. More important, our certified clinical nutritionist will teach you how to shop for and prepare these anti-aging foods so you can make them part of your regular diet when you return home.
