Imagine remaining at your physical and mental prime throughout the span of your life. Imagine a life span that does not include loss of mental, physical and sexual function. Now imagine that lifespan lasting greater than 100 years. Traditional medicine has largely ignored advances being made in the anti-aging field.
At I.M. 120, we use our "intellectual medicine" approach to extend your youthful lifespan.
THE PILLARS OF ANTI AGING
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement
At some point every human needs to have their hormones replaced or they will suffer the consequences. Muscles will shrink, bones will thin, the brain will slow down, genitalia will shrink, sexual function fades. Without intervention these results are inevitable. We use clinical evaluation and specialized testing to determine the best time to begin hormone therapy. We then monitor the results to insure the best outcome and long-term safety.
Toxic heavy metals, organophosphates and other pollutants accumulate in our body over time increasing our risk of dementia, cancer, and heart disease. Unfortunately our environment has become so saturated with them that complete avoidance is impossible. In addition, the effect of these toxins cannot be perceived until irreparable damage has been done. We will measure your toxins, then design a plan to minimize them.
Age Reversal, Inside and Out
Superficial anti-aging is sometimes just as important as internal anti-aging such as bioidentical hormones and detoxification. If you've been noticing more wrinkles in the mirror lately, you may want to consider our cosmetic anti-aging treatments. We offer treatments for fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
Almost everyone has heard of Botox. This treatment is great for dynamic wrinkles, those wrinkles that form when you smile or frown. The purified protein solution works in about a week to relax the muscles that cause the wrinkles on your skin to form. The results can last up to three or four months, at which point you can return to us for touch-up treatments.
There are many different types of dermal fillers out there. They address the wrinkles that Botox does not, namely, the static wrinkles. They also address any loss of volume in your face, which is why they are called fillers. Some fillers can even be used to plump the lips for a non-surgical lip augmentation treatment.
It is very important to take care of your skin with either high-quality over-the-counter skin care products or medical-grade products. If you look your best, you’re more likely to feel your best as well, which boosts your confidence levels and can help you take even more steps to improve your overall health and appearance -- as well as to succeed in other areas of life.
We also offer treatments to keep your complexion clear, if you suffer from hyperpigmentation, acne, scars, or sun damage.
Live At Your Best Weight
Carrying excess fat tissue increases cancer risk, heart disease risk, diminishes energy increases muscle and joint pain and shortens your life span. For many people, diet and exercise are not enough. We will analyze your blood testing, perform a body analysis, review your history then guide you towards permanently achieving your best weight.
"Free radicals" are unstable molecules created by the stress of daily living that slam about the body causing damage to all of our systems including the brain, and accelerate the aging process. "Antioxidants" are the natural way these substances are neutralized. By supplementing the right type and amount of antioxidants at the right time, either orally or intravenously, the damaging effects of free radicals can be neutralized. We will guide you toward the proper type and dose of antioxidants to achieve the best outcome.
Advanced Supplements and Prescriptions.
The scientific evidence that certain supplements and even some unique prescription and compounded drugs can help slow the aging process is growing. Conventional medicine is decades behind the research in this field. Using our "intellectual medicine" approach, we will apply scientific advances to support your youngest, and longest lifespan.
Slow Down the Aging Process with Targeted IV Nutrients
While aging isn't caused by one factor, free-radical damage is the dominant theory of why we age. Free radicals are implicated in such diseases as atherosclerosis, hypertension, Alzheimer's disease, arthritis, late-onset diabetes, and Parkinson's disease. During your consultation you will learn how IV nutritional antioxidants such as glutathione, vitamins A, C, and E, and beta-carotene fight free radicals, slowing the rate at which we age and reversing some of the damage already inflicted over the years.
"After starting the bioidentical hormone therapy, my life is back to normal! I look and feel better and I have my libido back! I cannot express how grateful I am that I.M. 120 listened to my problems and had an answer." ~Cindy
"I am 65 years old and have felt this age for several years. I knew there was something that could be done about it but didn't want to travel to Boston or NYC. I found I.M. 120 and after a VERY thorough assessment of my needs started on bioidentical hormones. I feel like I'm 40 years old again! I can't believe it was possible to feel this good. My energy, mood, libido, muscle tone and mental clarity have all returned. I am so thankful to have such a forward thinking physician here in Rhode Island. "
