Longevity Medicine in
Las Vegas/Henderson, Nevada

Longevity Medicine is one of the newer exciting areas of medicine that aims to improve the length of life, but more importantly the quality of life. Taking a different approach to health, longevity medicine strives to improve your life by either preventing disease or working on reversing disease processes that may have occurred. The ultimate goal is to extend our lifespan using personalized interventions that address the underlying factors contributing to aging.

The conventional medicine model focuses on making diagnoses of chronic diseases and then treating symptoms. With longevity medicine a more proactive approach is taken with a goal of preventing the onset of age-related illness to keep individuals healthy. Longevity medicine utilizes precision medicine testing to try and reverse chronic diseases like arteriosclerosis, osteoporosis, heart disease, and diabetes. Utilizing advanced biomarker lab testing we can find evidence of inflammaging (chronic inflammation that causes age-related diseases), evidence for causes of cellular senescence (gradual deterioration of the cell which can lead to cancerous cells) and insulin resistance (the body no longer responds to insulin like it should) which lead to mitochondrial dysfunction (cells do not have enough energy to work properly).

Precision medicine testing is individualized utilizing genetic testing, telomere testing, advanced radiologic testing, cancer screening,  stress assessment and nutrigenomics to determine how to optimize nutrition. The goal is to find the root cause of what caused the disease(s) and restore health or prevent it all together.

“The goal of a physician should be to find health
because anyone can find disease.”
Andrew Taylor Still, MD DO (1828-1917)
