The aging process may be inevitable, but treatment options are available to ensure that the later years of life are some of the best. At ATA Healthcare & Wellness we offer several options in anti-aging medicine to help both men and women rediscover their youthful vitality and energy. Through careful assessment of a patient’s current condition and customized treatment plans, we are able to alleviate many of the uncomfortable “symptoms” that are typically a part of the aging process. This is a comprehensive integrative therapy approach and requires a patient who is willing to make lifestyle changes. Integrative therapies can consist of a single or multi-dimensional approach to the person’s plan of care.
This may or may not include the use of bio-identical hormone replacement but is not limited to (see hormone optimization section for further information). Cutting edge diagnostic technology, such as genetic testing and advanced gut health testing are other options to also help alleviate the signs and symptoms of aging.
However, at ATA Healthcare & Wellness, you may be a candidate for treatment with peptide therapy. You may ask yourself “what is peptide therapy?” Peptide therapy is a newly emerged science that helps to achieve different kinds of body metamorphoses, both internal and external. Basically, peptides are small proteins comprised of short chains of amino acids that the body uses as hormones and signaling molecules for biological pathways. These proteins are responsible for the way your body functions. Your weight loss, your sexual competence, and even your digestion processes are partially controlled by these proteins. Peptide therapy helps the body mimic the functions of naturally occurring peptides to emulate certain abilities on targeted areas. Since peptides vary in structure and number, effects vary as well. Peptide therapy has been used to treat age-related conditions, osteoporosis, obesity, inflammatory disease and even neuropathy issues. This type of therapy provides a far less invasive alternative to medicines and procedures we have become all too familiar and complacent with, and since your body already recognizes various peptides, there are few reported side effects.
