3 Great New Anti-aging Treatments For Men and Women.

Bio-identical hormones… are they right for you?

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy or BHRT has been a treatment for menopausal and pre-menopausal symptoms for quite sometime and more recently public interest and demand has exploded. Suzanne Somers was the first well known personality promoting BHRT through her books, Ageless, The Sexy Years, Breakthrough and through her many appearances speaking on the subject. She describes how BHRT relieved her menopausal symptoms, increased her energy levels, increased her sexual desire and recaptured her overall zest for life! In actuality, BHRT is a popular therapy not only for women but for men as well. The main hormone panels tested for are:
  • Menopause
  • Andropause (male menopause)
  • Adrenal (fatigue/stress)
  • Thyroid (hypo/hyper)
  • Growth Hormone
By balancing and optimizing these hormone levels…patients report an increase in lean muscle mass, decrease in body fat, greater energy and overall zest for life, sharper thinking and memory, greater sexual desire and performance.
There are great differences between bio-identical and synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones are created in a lab and possess the exact molecular structure as those produced by your body. Synthetic hormones are also created in a lab however possess an altered molecular structure. The cells in your body absorb and synthesize bio-identical hormones easily and seamlessly whereas synthetic hormones often cause a variety of side effects and conditions. As medical studies worldwide have concluded… bio-identical hormones are a safer and more natural alternative to their synthetic versions.

What is Intravenous Nutrition?

Intravenous nutrition offers better bioavailability of nutrients to the body’s metabolic needs since the delivery is not dependant on the gastro-intestinal system or intestinal wall membrane. The goal of intravenous nutrition therapy goes well beyond that of providing general nutritional needs for a healthy body.
The degree of disease response and improvement reported by patients is well documented in clinical studies. Intravenous nutrition also allows the body to reach optimal therapeutic levels and maintains a better control and monitoring of the conditions being treated.

Clinical Uses

  • Malabsorption Syndromes (Celiac, Sprue, Chron’s, Ulcerative Colitis)
  • Chemotherapy
  • Gastric bypass patients
  • Feeding tube patients
  • Pre-op
  • Post-op
  • Detoxification
  • CFS/Fibromyalgia
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Improve endurance and decrease fatigue
All patients are evaluated with blood and urine tests to asses their nutritional and metabolic status and therapies are prescribed accordingly. The nutrients used are vitamins, anti-oxidants, minerals, anti-microbials and amino acids.
PRP Therapy is a form of regenerative medicine utilizing your own blood; blood contains components called platelets and platelets contain growth factors.   Growth factors activate and stimulate cellular regeneration in the body.
PRP Therapy is effective in the skin for overall rejuvenation and healing and in the scalp to awaken dormant follicles and stimulate hair growth. When released, growth factors encourage collagen production and formation of new capillaries.
The treatment is simple and can be completed within an hour. A minimal amount of blood is taken from the patient and then placed in a centrifuge for separation. The Platelet Rich Plasma is separated and transferred to a syringe. PRP is golden in color, viscous and easily injected without pain or downtime.
By using your own tissue (Autologous) virtually eliminates the potential problems with allergies or rejection. Utilize your own stem cells for regenerative therapy. Clinical Trials and empirical data have shown that platelets can increase the production of collagen and Elastin.

The Best Protection Against Photoaging

Photoaging refers to the damage that is done to the skin from prolonged exposure, over a person's lifetime, to UV radiation. Most of the skin changes that occur as we get older are accelerated by sun exposure. Examples of skin changes from photoaging include:
Protection Against Photoaging
"Photoaging" is the term that describes damage to the skin caused by intense and chronic exposure to sunlight. The visible effects of photoaging are fine wrinkles, mottling and pigmentation of the skin, and skin roughness—changes that are usually associated with chronologic aging (calendar years). But, photoaging is not a good indicator of chronologic age; it just makes a person to look older than his or her chronologic age. The three approaches to counter photoaging are:
  1. Avoid the midday sun
  2. Prevention by use of photoprotective agents—sunscreen and clothing
Photoprotection is the use of physical and/or chemical agents to prevent the skin-damaging effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation in sunlight. Physical agents are clothing, umbrellas and parasols, awnings and tents that protect you from sun when you are outdoors. 

Chemical agents are sunscreens you apply to your skin.
The effects of UV radiation on the skin are related to the intensity and duration of UV exposure. 

Avoiding intense, chronic exposure to solar radiation—for example, avoiding activities such as sun bathing—is one important way to protect against photoaging. 

Photoaging can be minimized by avoiding sun exposure between 10 AM and 4 PM. If you cannot avoid sun exposure between these peak hours of UV intensity, use sun-protective measures such as wearing a broad-brimmed hat and long-sleeved sun-protective clothing. 

You also need a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher if you are going to be exposed to sunlight for more than 20 minutes. An important point to remember: Even on cloudy days, 80 percent of the sun’s UV rays reach the ground. A cloudy day is not a reason to skimp on photoprotection.

Available topical retinoids include prescription tretinoin (Retin-A®), adapalene (Differ en®), and tazarotene (Tazorac®) and over-the-counter Retinol® and Ret in ol-A®. These drugs are derivatives of vitamin A which have anti-aging properties. Topical tretinoin was first observed to ameliorate the clinical signs of photoaging by Cordero (1983) and Kligman, Grove, Hirose, and Leyden (1986). The first double-blinded, randomized, vehicle-controlled clinical trials investigating the use of tretinoin for photoaged skin were performed in the late 1980s. In these studies, investigators found that surface roughness, dyspigmentation, and fine wrinkles demonstrated the most improvement with topical tretinoin therapy in the first 4 to 10 months of therapy (Weiss et al., 1988). Because epidermal changes seen early in therapy reverted to baseline, the wrinkle-improving effect of tretinoin was presumed to be due to effects on the dermis. In studies, topical tretinoin increased collagen type I in photoaged skin (Griffiths et al., 1993; Talwar, Griffiths, Fisher, Hamilton, & Voorhees, 1995). It is common and predictable for patients to develop a retinoid dermatitis characterized by erythema and scaling after starting a retinoid. With time and continued use, this dermatitis improves. A patient may use topical tretinoin as part of a daily and ongoing program to reverse the signs of clinical photoaging. Topical tretinoin is typically prescribed as a 0.05% or 0.1% cream, and for patients more sensitive to the effects, lower strengths can be used (0.02%, 0.025%). Tretinoin can be used indefinitely. There are no true contraindications to its use, though some patients are not able to tolerate the accompanying retinoid dermatitis.
Cosmeceuticals are agents that are marketed as cosmetic products, contain biologically active ingredients, and are available without a prescription. Drugs exert a biologic effect, are dispensed by prescription, and are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Cosmeceuticals do not undergo the rigorous testing required for drug approval, and there are few clinical controlled trials of these products. In fact, most of the work supporting their use is in vitro or small, open-label, industry-sponsored trials. The cosmeceutical industry is huge and future projections estimate that it will exceed $16 billion by 2010 (Choi & Berson, 2006). Cosmetic products containing peptides, antioxidants, and botanicals are examples of cosmeceuticals. A complete review of cosmeceuticals is beyond the scope of this article, so only select ones will be mentioned.

Peptides are amino acid chains that are fragments of large proteins such as collagen. Pal-KTTS is a collagen peptide fragment, and there is evidence in wound healing that it may penetrate into the dermis and stimulate collagen production (Katayama, Armendariz-Borunda, Raghow, Kang, & Seyer, 1993). Pal-KTTS is marketed as Matrixyl[99] (Sederna, France) and is an ingredient in a number of cosmeceuticals. A tripeptide-copper complex can increase collagen in wounds and is an ingredient in a number of cosmeceuticals such as Procyte GHK-copper peptide (Maquart et al., 1993).
Antioxidants are molecules that work in the skin to reduce ROS, which are generated by UV damage and lead to breakdown of collagen. There is much interest in the use of antioxidants both orally and topically to combat aging skin, but there are few published studies on the efficacy of these agents. There is reason to be optimistic, as preliminary studies demonstrate that certain antioxidants may exert an anti-aging effect by preventing and even reversing sun damage. 
Idebenone is a synthetic analog of Coenzyme Q 10 with potent antioxidant activity; it reduces skin roughness, increases skin hydration, reduces fine lines, and was associated with an improvement in overall global assessment of photoaged skin (McDaniel, Neudecker, DiNardo, Lewis, & Maibach, 2005). Topical vitamin C 5% cream applied for 6 months led to clinical improvement in the appearance of photoaged skin with regard to firmness, smoothness, and dryness compared to vehicle (Humbert et al., 2003). Topical vitamin C stimulates the collagen-producing activity of the dermis (Nusgens, Humbert, Rougier, Richard, & LapiE8re, 2002).
