REGENERATIVE MEDICINE FAQ
WHAT IS REGENERATIVE MEDICINE?
Regenerative Medicine focuses on diagnosis, treatments and modalities that aim to help the body restore and repair itself in order to stay as young, vibrant, active, energetic and as sharp as you were when you were younger.
DOES REGENERATIVE MEDICINE REALLY WORK?
IS REGENERATIVE MEDICINE SAFE?
Our patients will tell you that it does. Everything we do or recommend is supported by the most current medical literature and information available
IS REGENERATING YOURSELF EXPENSIVE?
DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
We do NOT accept or bill insurance in our office. We will, upon request, provide you a detailed superbill for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement for services by an out of network provider.
ANTI AGING MEDICINE
HOW IS AGE MEASURED?
There are several different ways to measure age. The simplest is to count the years. But we all know that your chronological age doesn’t tell the whole story. There are 56 year olds who look like they are 40 and there are other who look like they are 70. The best test of aging today appears to be a test of telomere length. As it turns out, our telomeres, the caps on the ends of the DNA strands that instruct the cells to divide can be used to give us a sense of our biological age. Another way to measure age is to look at your vascular reactivity. The greater the flexibility and thus reactivity, the younger you likely are.
HOW MANY YEARS CAN YOU EXTEND A PERSONS LIFE WITH ANTI AGING MEASURES?
This depends on how intensive a program you want and are willing to embark on. To help someone look 2-5 years younger is relatively simple. To help someone look, feel, and act 7-20 years younger is a more intense program that once started, you typically do not want to stop.
CAN I BE ON ANTI AGING SUPPLEMENTS WHEN I HAVE A MEDICAL CONDITION?
HOW LONG SHOULD I BE ON AN ANTI AGING PROGRAM?
IV VITAMIN THERAPY
IS IV VITAMIN THERAPY BETTER THAN SIMPLY TAKING VITAMIN SUPPLEMENTS?
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A “PUSH” AND A “DRIP”?
DOES IV VITAMIN THERAPY WORK?
CAN IV VITAMIN THERAPY HELP YOU DETOX?
DOES INSURANCE COVER IV VITAMIN THERAPY?
This is a question for your insurance company. We are happy to provide you with a superbill for you to submit for reimbursement, but in our office, payment is due when services are rendered.
WHAT IS INVOLVED WITH HORMONE THERAPY?
Our entire physiology is regulated by our hormones and their interactions with one another. We take into account over 30 different hormones (including precursors and metabolites), when we prescribe a program for someone. We always use hormones that are equal or similar to those our body produces naturally in order to foster a natural and safe transition to a younger you.
I WANT TO GET OFF PREMPRO, WHERE DO I START?
You can start by making an appointment and letting us review your case. Then we will take a careful medical history and obtain appropriate labs in order to guide on the path to wellness.
WHAT ARE THE COGNITIVE ENHANCERS?
One of the telltale signs of aging is that the speed with which we think begins to slow down and run out of juice. Cognitive enhancers are substances that improve the speed of your brain waves and your mental acuity. They can be in the form of nutrietns, supplements, hormones, and in selected cases safe pharmaceuticals.
WHAT ABOUT THE RISKS OF BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE THERAPY?
WHEN SHOULD I THINK ABOUT REPLACING/BALANCING HORMONES?
The ideal time to begin thinking about your hormones is before you begin to lose them. For most of us, this is about 30-35 years of age. At that age, we focus more in measurement and prevention of loss.
IS DIET AND EXERCISE IMPORTANT?
We mentioned earlier that anti aging is a lifestyle. Proper nutrition and exercise are essential components to a comprehensive program.
COST, SAFETY, AND TIME
ARE THE TREATMENTS COVERED BY INSURANCE?
Whenever possible, we try to make use of your insurance. The fact is that few insurance companies pay for prevention or longevity. We are a cash based practice and with the exception of some consultation services, none of our treatments are covered by your insurance.
