Healthy Aging Q & A

What is healthy aging?

Getting older puts you at a higher risk of countless health conditions as your body doesn’t function as efficiently as it did while you were young. The cellular life cycle slows down, and there is more damage to cells throughout your body at any given time. 

To age as gracefully as possible and remain healthy in your later years, it’s important to start making wise health decisions early in life. This minimizes the amount of damage accumulated throughout your body and helps you manage the disease risks that come with an older age. 

At Healthy Lifestyle Medicine, the team helps you optimize your health by recognizing the opportunities you have to be healthier every day. With your well-being at the front of your mind, you’re more likely to make decisions that can manage age-related changes in the body.

Healthy Lifestyle Medicine also offers treatments and services that ease the transition into your older age. 

Which services promote healthy aging?

The team at Healthy Lifestyle Medicine can help you explore the many treatments and services they offer that promote better health for older individuals. Some target specific age-related complications, like menopause symptoms or pelvic floor dysfunction, while others improve your general wellness at any age. 

If you’re concerned about the effects of aging on your body, or if you’re anticipating upcoming age-related changes, the Healthy Lifestyle Medicine team might recommend:

  • Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy
  • Weight loss services
  • Nutrition services
  • Supplement guidance
  • Vitamin injections
  • Body sculpting
  • EMSELLA® for pelvic floor function

Your providers might also recommend getting more frequent blood tests and disease screenings in your older age. They may use blood tests to evaluate your hormones, nutrition, allergies, or how you interact with certain medications. 

How can I promote healthy aging at home?

Outside the Healthy Lifestyle Medicine office, you can maintain your mental and physical health with age by following all of the team’s personalized suggestions and by making some of your own healthy changes. 

You can stay as healthy as possible as you age by:

  • Avoiding smoking 
  • Exercising
  • Drinking plenty of water
  • Maintaining a healthy weight
  • Learning new skills and otherwise exercising the mind
  • Taking steps to prevent slips and falls

The team at Healthy Lifestyle Medicine works with you to figure out which changes you can make to become more health-conscious at any age.
