What is anti-aging?

Anti-aging treatments help to slow down the inevitable effects of getting older. Some can even reverse problems associated with aging. While there’s no way to avoid growing old, with Dr. Lominchar’s expert help, you can delay the process and enjoy a longer, healthier life.

Your body works hard to keep you healthy and youthful, but the life you lead and years of wear and tear are bound to take their toll. The aging process can accelerate with risk factors such as:

  • Smoking
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Poor diet
  • Environmental problems like pollution
  • Chronic stress
  • Drug misuse
  • Weight problems
  • Overwork
  • Excessive sun exposure

Your genetic makeup also influences the way you age. For example, if one or both of your parents had osteoarthritis or heart disease, you’re far more likely to develop them too.

Anti-aging therapies optimize your overall health and boost your natural ability to repair and renew yourself.

What anti-aging treatments are available?

Dr. Lominchar offers several effective anti-aging treatments, including:

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT)

Hormone loss is a major factor in aging. Your body naturally reduces the production of hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone as you age, especially from mid-life onward. A lack of these hormones can cause problems like dry, thinning hair and skin, loss of muscle mass, and reduced bone density.

Dr. Lominchar uses bioidentical hormones (BHRT) to offer a safer, natural alternative to synthetic hormone replacement. BHRT can slow and even reverse many signs of aging, helping you feel younger and more energized.

Weight Management

Excess body weight takes a severe toll on your body, putting your organs and musculoskeletal system under excessive strain. Dr. Lominchar offers medical weight-loss management programs that help you lose weight safely and keep it off for good.

Lifestyle changes

Many of the things that accelerate aging relate to your lifestyle. Dr. Lominchar can help with smoking cessation, reducing alcohol intake, and showing you how to manage stress. She offers nutrition counseling to improve your diet, including food supplements and IV (intravenous) therapy.

Patients can also benefit from advanced nutraceutical treatments. One of these is the Metagenics® Clear Change 10-Day Cleanse, which enhances your body’s natural detoxification process so it can remove harmful chemicals and pollutants. Another is science-based dietary supplements from Douglas Laboratories.
