Preventive health care isn’t limited to avoiding chronic diseases. With the right preventive measures, you can also fight aging.
Dr. Bissoon has extensively studied the aging process and understands the impact of aging as it begins in your cells and progresses to affect every tissue and organ in your body. Knowing how aging changes each body system allows him to provide preventive treatments that slow down and reverse the process.
These are only a few examples of the many preventive measures Dr. Bissoon employs to fight aging:
Low energy and fatigue are common in older adults, but both can be prevented with a holistic approach that includes replenishing nutrients, exercise, bioidentical hormone replacement, and restoring levels of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), a substance that’s essential for producing energy.
Adequate nutrition supports your body and slows down the pace of aging. Dr. Bissoon offers multiple nutritional treatments, such as IV therapy, and customized a nutrition plan based on a thorough analysis of your nutritional status and genetic testing.
Nutrigenomics uses genetic testing to learn how foods affect your genes and how your genetic variations impact your body’s use of nutrients. Pharmacogenomics reveals how your body’s unique genetic makeup metabolizes medications. Dr. Bissoon uses genetic information to individualize your anti-aging care.
Being overweight or obese is linked to chronic medical conditions that contribute to aging. Additionally, excess weight may speed up cellular aging.
Dr. Bisson’s approach to weight loss is comprehensive. After an in-depth physical evaluation and blood work to test for existing health concerns and determine your hormone levels, he recommends one of several effective weight-loss plans, such as the HCG diet.
As you get older, your levels of hormones decline. Women lose estrogen at menopause, testosterone levels naturally drop in men, and everyone experiences a decline in many other hormones, including growth hormone, melatonin, and thyroid hormones.
Low hormone levels contribute to many age-related problems, from memory loss and heart disease to wrinkles and osteoporosis. Dr. Bissoon offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to safely restore hormonal balance, helping you regain energy and reverse age-related changes caused by low hormones.
