When we think of aging, we may think of wrinkled skin, thinning hair, decreased hearing or vision. These are the more tangible signs of chronologic aging. What about your immune system? Just like the other parts of your body, your immune system is affected by chronologic aging.  As we age, our ability to create antibodies diminishes. The neutrophils that are created do not move as effectively, and do not adhere to their targets as well. This all adds up to a greater vulnerability to infection with everything from the flu, to bladder infections, to pneumonia...

Middle-Age Men, Too Can Blame Estrogen For That Waistline

Category: Anti Aging
Posted by: ShannonPetteruti

It is the scourge of many a middle-aged man: he starts getting a pot belly, using lighter weights at the gym and somehow just doesn’t have the sexual desire of his younger years.

The obvious culprit is testosterone, since men gradually make less of the male sex hormone as years go by. But a surprising new answer is emerging, one that doctors say could reinvigorate the study of how men’s bodies age. Estrogen, the female sex hormone, turns out to play a much bigger role in men’s bodies...

Chelation treatments reduced cardiovascular events, such as heart attacks, and death in patients with diabetes but not in those who did not have diabetes, according to analyses of data from the National Institutes of Health-funded Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy (TACT).

Living Boulder thanks to Antiaging Medicine

Here I am at 54, after I think 12 knee surgeries (at some point I lost count) running up and down Yawgoo Ski Resort, clearing obstacles, keeping up with my thirty-something wife and my young staff. I practice antiaging medicine so I can live better, not just longer.

I first noticed in my late 40's that I was starting to lose something. It was hard to put my finger on, but I just wasn't the same. Not the same sharpness of mind, not the same physical energy and strength. I started to wonder, "is this as good as it gets?" I was aware...
