The ambulance arrives at the ER. Several hospital staff members receive a gurney carrying a man, the victim of a gunshot wound. The attending surgeon takes one look at him and says, “This man needs a hysterectomy!”
How ridiculous would this be?
Surgeons know that each case is unique. Every human body is different. Sure there are similarities, but each person is an individual composed of a myriad of chemical and mechanical functions that flow together, balanced in a symphony of complex patterns, where form fits function with more perfection and harmony than the most imaginative achievements of human kind.
Today modern medicine is taking another look at how we treat disease. Applying the same principles used in the operating room, nutritional medicine is focusing on the individual. Different people with different bodies have different needs. Not everyone requires the same diet. Neither are they deficient in the same vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Variations in body chemistry cause thousands of diseases, each with a group of symptoms that often require a number of pharmaceutical products just to help a patient reach a quality of life that is tolerable. Likewise, studies in athleticism have shown that the needs of athletes vary drastically one from another and even over certain periods of time. For example, cortisol levels can begin to deviate from normal diurnal cycles in response to physical stress and can lead to any number of undesirable effects, including depression, muscle wasting, and fat retention – side effects that are completely contrary to the goals of any athlete! With proper supplementation and a specialized approach, such unnecessary symptoms of physical fatigue can often be avoided.
The future of medicine reaches beyond simply treating symptoms. Today we seek to eliminate the cause of the disease. Already, genetic drugs are being custom made to repair DNA in ways that can completely eradicate any sign of specific genetic diseases. However, the shocking truth is that many chronic diseases originate with the body’s failure to absorb specific nutrients, whether due to a lack of specific substances in the diet or the aging process of the human digestive system. AgeVital compounds special treatment programs designed to help return the body to its optimal performance. Recognizing that every person is unique, we are taking advantage of modern technology to address the specific needs of each of our patients. One size does not fit all. Working together with physicians using sophisticated laboratory testing, lifestyle and medical history assessments, and physical examination, we can attend to various cellular metabolic processes. This is where the fight against many chronic diseases begins.
Chronic illnesses like cardiovascular disease, inflammatory bowel diseases, fatigue, obesity, neurological disorders, musculoskeletal disorders (such as arthritis and fibromyalgia), autoimmune diseases, Hepatitis C, diabetes and certain types of cancers are all being treated with proactive medicine. Not everyone has the same diseases or requires the same treatments. Our goal is to work together with you and your physician to help you discover and treat your individual health needs. We don’t want you to take someone else’s supplements. We want you to take your own!
