MIAMI, Florida (PRWEB) July 10, 2013
Optimal health Miami has opened a new clinic focused on age management through proactive and preventative healthcare. The program, designed for everyone interested in preserving their optimal physical performance and quality of life, operates under the philosophy that aging is inevitable, but optimizing your body and mental health is a choice.
The Optimal Health staff consists of physicians and nurses specially trained in the philosophy of age management medicine, which stresses proper diet, exercise, stress management and appropriate medical recommendations within the scope of age management medicine for each individual patient.
Optimal Health Miami?s team consists of Board Certified physicians and nurse practitioners each skilled in integrated medicine. Patient goals are analyzed by the Optimal Health staff members who then create a complete nutrition, exercise, hormone and supplement regimen customized to the individual patient, focused on age management medicine, for optimal performance both physically and mentally.
According to Optimal Health Miami Executive Director Marc C. Gittelman, M.D., patients who participate in age management medicine can decrease their risks of age-related disease, increase physical and sexual vitality, increase muscle tone, decrease body fat and sharpen their mental acuity.
?The science of age management medicine has evolved into an evidence-based field dedicated to clinically sound healthcare,” Gittelman says. “It incorporates advances in biochemistry, biology and physiology, and the field is further enhanced by contributions from mind/body medicine, sports medicine and molecular genetics.?
Medical researchers have established a direct correlation between aging and decreased hormone production, according to Gittelman. Optimal Health Miami?s professional staff evaluates the individual physiology of each individual client to make suggestions that optimize hormone levels.
Through individualized blood tests and scans, each patient?s physiology is evaluated in order to determine the best approach to optimize hormone levels and create a program that best suits the patient?s specific needs.
?When it?s appropriate, we try to achieve hormone levels equivalent to those you had in your prime, which will help you to look and feel younger,? Gittelman says.
The benefits to Optimal Health Miami participants are many, according to Gittelman. Lab work establishes each patient?s cardiac lipid profile (to assess the risk of cardiovascular disease,) thyroid evaluation, testosterone and related hormone evaluation, kidney and liver evaluation, prostate cancer check (PSA) for men and sexual health checkup.
The Optimal Health Miami exercise physiology evaluation is designed to help patients optimize their workout strategies and monitor their improvement over time. Using equipment identical to that used in Olympic training facilities, patients receive an expert evaluation of their oxygen utilization and oxygen pulse, and gain a better understanding of aerobic and anaerobic thresholds.
Personalized training strategies help patients achieve their personal training goals. Optimal Health Miami staff communicates with personal trainers and provide individualized workout programs.
Optimal Health Miami also provides treatments and support to for enhancing the sexual experience, important to all age groups.
