Anti-Aging/Longevity Medicine Q & A

What is anti-aging medicine?

Anti-aging medicine uses innovative technology to make advancements in diagnosing, treating, and preventing diseases associated with aging. It’s sometimes referred to as the medical fountain youth.

Cutting-edge science allows Dr. Kim to use various, effective methods, such as IV nutritional therapy and hormone optimization, to enhance your well-being and restore a youthful glow. Anti-aging medicine promotes longevity and is one of the best forms of preventive care.

A good anti-aging program can help prevent and sometimes even reverse degenerative conditions such as:

  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Glaucoma
  • Osteoporosis
  • Hypertension
  • Heart disease
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Auto-immune diseases

A longevity assessment is a collection of exams that allow Dr. Kim and his medical team to assess your overall health. Dr. Kim will devise a plan to enhance your health and longevity by conducting numerous exams, including:

  • Blood testing
  • Hearing and visual acuity test
  • Testing for vitamin deficiencies
  • Testing for hormone deficiencies
  • Nutritional assessment and counseling

 

Which anti-aging treatments are available?

Functional medicine and anti-aging go hand-in-hand with effective wellness methods including exercise programs, nutritional counseling, and herbal supplementation to correct vitamin deficiencies.

Dr. Kim and his team offer an array of anti-aging treatments, including:

IV Nutritional Therapy

A successful way to rectify vitamin deficiencies is through IV nutritional therapy. You’ll undergo testing to measure concentrations of specific key hormones that often deplete with age, before being given an IV of the necessary nutrients. Typically, this takes multiple visits over time.

Hormone Optimization

Dr. Kim administers synthetic hormones to rectify hormone deficiencies, often through an injection.

Exercise Programs

Exercise programs and physical therapy are commonly used anti-aging treatments.


What is hormone optimization?

Hormones can be administered to treat specific hormone deficiencies that can lead to coinciding health complications. For example, a synthetic growth hormone can be delivered with an injection to increase bone density, muscle mass, and even decrease body fat, rectifying both the hormone deficiency and the resulting symptoms.

As you age, hormone imbalances and deficiencies can naturally occur and manifest in symptoms, such as:

  • Hair loss
  • Low libido
  • Weight gain
  • Excessive fatigue

Dr. Kim utilizes synthetic hormones to help restore hormones that commonly decline with age, including: 

  • DHEA
  • Thyroid
  • Estrogen
  • Melatonin
  • Testosterone
  • Progesterone
  • Human growth hormone
