What is Wellness and Longevity?
Wellness refers to the overall state of physical, mental, and emotional well-being, while longevity refers to a long and healthy life. Achieving both involves adopting a balanced lifestyle with regular exercise, a nutritious diet, stress management, and preventive healthcare. We encourage you to learn more about this condition and the products we offer below.
Still have some questions?
Say no more.
Men can suffer from a wide range of health concerns as they get older. Symptoms can include loss of sexual function, reduced energy, problems sleeping, and even problems maintaining a healthy body weight. Many of these functions are governed by hormone levels, and an imbalance is commonly the underlying issue.
Hormone therapy and other wellness treatments can correct these symptoms, giving you regained energy and vitality.
The terms anti-aging and longevity are sometimes used interchangeably. But longevity is not anti-aging, and we cannot stop the clock or achieve immortality. With longevity treatments, the goal is to achieve a comfortable quality of life as we age.
With an average lifespan of 77.2 years and an average health span of 66.3 years, the ultimate goal is to maintain a productive life for as long as possible without any prolonged periods of health decline during that 11 year period.
The aging process occurs at the cellular level when structures called telomeres wear down and wear out, hindering the cellular regeneration necessary for optimal health. Over time, damaged cells stop being able to repair themselves, and new cells stop forming, resulting in what we know as the “natural’ aging process.
Longevity isn’t a specialty yet. There are some promising indications that it will become a specialty soon! Many integrative and functional medicine doctors (often the early adopters) are eager to organize and apply this new information clinically.
