I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by Dan O’Beirne for his Metabolic Motivation Podcast and blog.
Here’s the the link to the video:
We talk about how I got started practicing Age Management Medicine and why i think it’s so important for everyone to be proactive about their aging. I talk about my own personal story of hormonal decline and how I changed my life so dramatically through optimizing my hormones that it inspired me to devote my career to helping others do the same.
Some of the questions I ask my patients on their first visit (and that you should ask yourself) are:
1. Are you beginning to lose your edge?
2. Are you feeling less energetic?
3. Are you gaining weight around the middle despite your best efforts?
4. Is your skin less supple and smooth, becoming more wrinkled?
5. Are your libido and sexual performance declining?
6. Do you wish you could look and feel vital, active, and youthful again?
I was experiencing many these symptoms and feeling this way in my early 30s. I didn’t know what the problem and despite being a physician, didn’t know where to turn. Physicians don’t learn about optimizing hormones in medical school!
In my years of practicing medicine in West Hollywood and Beverly Hills, these were some of the most common complaints brought to me by my patients. I realized that along with the symptoms of aging they were experiencing, they were also becoming at increased risk for the chronic degenerative diseases of aging such as Alzheimer’s, insulin resistance and diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis and stroke.
Making matters worse, their primary care doctors were often telling them “everything was fine” and that their symptoms were simply part of “normal aging.” They were frustrated and didn’t know where to go or what to do to begin feeling more vital, youthful, and full of energy.
It was a lose-lose situation.
But I found an anti-aging solution that worked for me, and believe so strongly in it, that I assembled a team of professionals at The Body Well dedicated to bringing this anti-aging solution to you.
Beginning as early as your late 20s, the hormones you want low typically begin to rise (e.g. insulin, cortisol) and the ones you want high begin to decline (e.g. testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, pregnenolone, human growth hormone (HGH), DHEA, thyroid). As a result, men and women begin to experience changes in attitudes and moods, mild depression, fatigue, loss of mental sharpness and memory, lower sex drive, skin wrinkling, muscle loss, belly fat, loss of energy, and reduction in physical agility.
It’s commonly a result of these hormone changes. And there is a solution.
Comprehensive Age Management Medicine is a medical specialty that involves evaluating you for symptoms and signs of degenerative aging and decline and slowing down that process through hormone optimization including HGH hormone (HGH injections) if indicated, proper nutrition, and exercise. It’s not just about living longer, it’s about living better.
So tune in and learn a little more!
