Anti-Aging Q & A

What is anti-aging?

Anti-aging is a practice that focuses on slowing down the aging process. As you get older, your body’s production of collagen, which is a protein that makes your skin more pliable and firm, decreases and hormone levels begin to fluctuate and drop. These physiological changes cause your body to change, leading to:

  • Wrinkles and lines
  • Weight gain
  • Increased risk of heart disease and osteoporosis

Exposure to stress and toxic substances, such as cigarette smoke, may increase the aging process.

As internal medicine physicians, the team at Roxbury Concierge Doctors spent years studying the science behind these changes so they can provide advanced treatments to help manage aging and slow it down.

What types of treatments help slow down aging?

The team at Roxbury Concierge Doctors offer a number of different anti-aging treatments. The team determines the best treatment option for you only after a thorough medical examination that includes your medical history, a physical exam, wellness assessment, and blood work.

Treatment might include:

  • Hormone therapy
  • Diet changes
  • Exercise program

If you participate in the concierge medicine service, you get priority scheduling for examinations and special tests that can help determine the best anti-aging treatment for you.

How does hormone therapy help slow down aging?

Both men and women experience a decrease in sex hormones as they get older. This decline in hormone levels affects you both physically and mentally, and causes a number of symptoms, including:

  • Weight gain and loss of muscle mass
  • Irritability
  • Low sex drive
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Increased risk of heart disease and osteoporosis
  • Hot flashes and night sweats

Hormone replacement treatments, including estrogen for women and testosterone for men, restore your hormone balance to help relieve these symptoms and slow down the aging process.

Can a special diet work for anti-aging?

What you eat can significantly affect how your body ages. Certain foods protect against the damage toxic substances called free radicals can have on your body’s cells. To help improve your health and slow down your body’s aging, the team at Roxbury Concierge Doctors recommend you fill your diet with these anti-aging foods:

  • Blueberries, cherries, and watermelon for antioxidants
  • Fatty fish such as salmon and tuna for omega-3 fatty acids
  • Nuts and olive oil for healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats
  • Yogurt for bone health
  • Tomatoes and broccoli for fiber, antioxidants, and lycopene

It’s also important to drink plenty of water to help flush out any toxins.
