Anti-Aging Medicine

Anti-aging medicine is the application of medical technology for the early detection, prevention, treatment and reversal of the three age-related “Ds”-dysfunction, disorders and diseases.

As an extension of preventive health care, anti-aging medicine it is the next great model of health care for the new millennium.

 

According to the American Academy for Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M), the three rules of anti-aging medicine are:

  • Don’t get sick
  • Don’t get old
  • Don’t die

The longer you live, the better your chances are for living even longer. Medical knowledge doubles every 3.5 years, so a time will come when perhaps we will know how to stop aging, put it on hold and even eventually reset the clock mechanism of life itself.

If you have had your cholesterol tested, had a thermogram, or taken bio-identical hormones, you have experienced anti-aging medicine.  90% of all adult illness is due to the degenerative processes of aging. This includes heart disease, most cancers, adult-onset diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, autoimmune disease, glaucoma, and Alzheimer's.

With early detection and appropriate intervention, most of these diseases can be prevented, cured, or have their downward course reversed.

Anti-Aging Medicine in Tampa Bay

Anyone over the age of 30- or 40 years knows that they “can’t perform the way they used to.” This is often true both physically and mentally. It is a rare person who can do more or better at age 50 that they could at 30. But all do wish for that.

When we break this down in terms of objective science, we can see that as people age, their skin losses it elasticity, their thinking is slower, or memory not as accurate, or their hormone levels have fallen or their aches and pains are more. In short, aging causes measurable changes in people. We now know with anti-aging scientific breakthroughs, that much of these functions can be very much improved and sometimes restored completely- or at least so much that a person at 60 will remark, “I now feel like I’m 35 again!”

At our Clearwater clinic, this is our goal: That you not only feel younger, but that your body behaves younger and looks younger, and that by objective laboratory measurements it is younger. That is anti-aging medicine working.

By restoring gut health, hormone levels, restoring vitamin and mineral levels, removing toxins from the body, reducing body fat, increasing lean body tissue, we can anti-age someone. It’s not voodoo, its modern medical science and you can benefit from it by seeing our anti-aging specialist practitioners at Lifeworks Wellness Center.

Dr. David Minkoff, M.D.
Founder and Medical Director
In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established Lifeworks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
