Anti-aging medicine is a field that focuses on helping patients live longer, healthier lives. Though it’s true there’s no medical technology that can actually stop the aging process, there are practices that can help you feel your best as you navigate this process.
It’s natural for your body to undergo changes as you get older, and for you to become more vulnerable to illness and injury. Part of anti-aging medicine is detecting, preventing, and treating health problems that commonly affect older people, including heart disease, cancer, and Type 2 diabetes.
With age-related changes to your body, you may need to pay closer attention to your diet and other habits, like physical activity, which are key factors in the development of illnesses.
Anti-aging medicine at Balanced Health Medical Center also includes innovative treatment approaches, such as IV therapy and hormone replacement therapy, that have been shown to counter the effects of aging. It’s Dr. Tyson’s aim as an anti-aging doctor for his treatment to help you feel your best on a daily basis.
Dr. Tyson offers a range of anti-aging treatments tailored to your individual needs and goals. After evaluating your condition, which may include a physical exam and blood tests, he may suggest:
IV therapy involves delivering a customized formula of vitamins and other nutrients to your bloodstream through an IV. IV therapy can rehydrate you, treat nutritional deficiencies, and help you feel better faster.
As a men’s health specialist, Dr. Tyson offers testosterone replacement therapy for men experiencing age-related low testosterone. Testosterone replacement therapy can improve symptoms like low energy, erectile dysfunction, weight gain, loss of muscle mass, and emotional changes.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, which uses the growth factors found in your blood to promote healing, can improve chronic pain from conditions including arthritis. This allows you to lead a healthier, more active lifestyle.
To get the best possible results, Dr. Tyson always combines anti-aging treatment with personal coaching and support to live a healthy lifestyle.
There are a number of factors that can affect lifespan, but behaviors shown to contribute to a longer, healthier life include:
It’s also important to schedule regular preventive care and seek treatment if you’re concerned about your health. Dr. Tyson is available to help you stay healthy and feeling your best.
