Anti-Aging Medicine

By Lucy Rose Clinic

October 1, 2020

Wouldn’t it be great to turn back the clock?

To see those aches and pains disappear, or for that belly fat to melt?

There have been such huge advancements in anti-aging beauty, but looking younger and actually feeling younger in your body are two very different things. And when our health is suffering, our priorities about our body, appearance, and vitality can take a big shift too!

Different levels of ageing

Did you know that your biological age is not the same as your chronological age?

In unhealthy people, the biological age is often measured to be much higher than their real age. On the other hand, healthy people usually appear much younger than they actually are.

Natural Medicine essentially is antiaging medicine at its core because it focuses on slowing down the biological aging process by treating and preventing age-related disease on the molecular and cellular level.

The difference in 2 health approaches

In conventional medicine, doctors diagnose and treat diseases, and then put in place measures to manage their symptoms. Usually, medicines mask individual disease symptoms and come at a cost in the form of side effects. These secondary symptoms are not the result of the underlying disease, but rather the effect of medication used. This leads to further drug management and eventual polypharmacy where someone can end up on more than 2 drugs. The physician’s role is often reduced to managing drugs and not the patients’ health.

Natural medicine deals with the actual physiological and biochemical causes of diseases and age-related disorders. Naturopaths focus on finding and treating the root cause of disease, rather than using prescriptions to mask disease symptoms. Natural Medicine focuses on improving health and increasing the quality of life for the patient.

Anti-ageing and weight loss

Optimising someone’s health and reversing their biological age generally results in them finding their ideal weight.

This is because hormones are usually at the core of a weight problem, and natural health focuses on balancing hormonal issues – particularly at The Lucy Rose Clinic!

Thyroid, blood sugars, steroid hormones, and sex hormones all need to be assessed and treated if out of balance in a truly corrective health program.

Inflammatory markers, Leptin levels, and liver function also need to be looked at and tested if signs and symptoms point to an imbalance.

Do you have signs of imbalance?

  • Fatigue
  • Memory problems
  • Headaches
  • Weight Gain – fat around the belly, or back
  • Hair shedding
  • Weak nails
  • Coldsores or mouth ulcers
  • Digestive issues
  • Sudden drops in energy that leave you feeling washed out

Nutritional Medicine

Using the latest nutritional testing, an experienced natural physician can help you determine your nutritional deficiencies and design a customised supplementation plan. Easy adjustments in your diet and supplements can make a huge difference in the improvement of your health and vitality.

Every person is different biochemically, physiologically, and psychologically. Your treatment plan will take into account your unique biochemistry.

Botanical medicine can be highly tailored to suit your specific needs to help you achieve and maintain optimal levels of performance: sexual, physical, and mental.

Prevention is better than cure

Prevention of future disease is just as important as treating an existing one. The best way to treat any medical condition is to prevent it in the first place. Active screening, early diagnosis, the latest laboratory testing, and prompt intervention are key in helping our patients live their best life possible.
