Listen to how age management medicine has helped Lisa cope:
Current scientific studies have demonstrated that most adults have significantly lower levels of several essential hormones by age 40. Those key hormones include DHEA, thyroid, cortisol, estrogen and testosterone. Insufficient levels of these major anti-stress hormones are linked to memory lapses, mood swings, fatigue, low libido, menopause/andropause, muscle and joint pain, loss of skin elasticity, osteoporosis, and increased body fat.
This progressive decline in health, associated with lower hormone levels, was once thought to be inevitable, resulting in both doctors and patients stating the same mantra, “What do you expect; I'm getting older” or “I guess I just have to learn to live with it”. Click here to check out the new study on menopause and acupuncture as reported on ABC NEWS. Dr. Gallagher is a certified medical acupuncturist and uses the technique to help manage the symtoms of menopause. The current scientific breakthroughs in age management now suggest that although your hormone levels may be declining (along with your health), your hormone receptors do not decline with age. Therefore, the complications of aging can be managed by replacing the declining hormone levels with human identical hormones that can reactive your hormone receptors and start improving your health. The Age Management Program at Medical Wellness Associates begins with a comprehensive history & lifestyle evaluation to determine your specific metabolism, the status of your hormone levels and the overall functionality of your physiology. Our program also includes functional laboratory tests for brain and body aging, metabolic errors, genetic markers, traditional risk factors, nutritional deficiencies, food allergies, heavy metal toxicity, and structural integrity of your muscles and joints. Following your comprehensive evaluation, an individual age management program will be reviewed with you by the physician. Treatment programs may include diet & lifestyle modification, human identical hormone therapy (bio-identical hormones), nutraceuticals (USP vitamins, enzymes, botanical medicines, homeopathics, etc), and structural integration (medical acupuncture, prolotherapy, spinal manipulation, etc.). Ultimately, the philosophy of our age management program is, “better health and functional longevity” is not an accident but rather a choice. Come with us and experience how to regain your health and maximize your health potential.
