Healthy Ageing Medicine is founded on the application of advanced scientific and medical technologies for the early detection, prevention, treatment and reversal of age-related dysfunction, disorders and diseases. It is a healthcare model promoting innovative science and research to prolong the healthy lifespan in humans.
At Longiva Healthy Ageing Institute we focus on Health Ageing by establishing hormonal homeostasis and addressing core issues like:
IDENTIFYING ALL SOURCES AND SIGNS OF INFLAMMATION IN THE BODY
ADRENAL STRESS & FATIGUE
In a world where we all sleep 2 hours less than 50 years ago and where technology has sped up life to almost an inhuman point, stress levels and the impact of it, have almost gotten out of hand.
Many of our current biggest challenges staying and growing older in good health, lies at the door of managing our stress levels and the consequences too much stress has on our bodies
The adrenals are the hormone organs of primary concern in stress and the levels of cortisol and the other stress hormones with their negative impact in the body. At Longiva a great deal of focus is spent on diagnosing adrenal stress and fatigue and treating it with bio-identical hormones, Nutraceuticals and lifestyle changes.
Thyroid disorders are medical conditions that affect the function of the thyroid gland. The symptoms of thyroid disease vary depending on a low functioning or high functioning thyroid. Structural abnormalities and tumours may also cause problems. Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease. Our physicians are dedicated to finding and treating underlying causes and prevention of serious chronic disease rather than disease symptoms.
MENOPAUSE, ANDROPAUSE & OTHER HORMONAL PAUSES
Because we live so much longer today, women must bear the impact of menopause on their bodies for 40 years plus. This leads to many chronic conditions developing which could have been prevented if the menopause had been treated early and adequately.
The modern trend today is using bio-identical hormones with much less chance of causing complications.
In men their sex hormones do not completely disappear, but it diminishes to such an extent that often after 45 years of age, andropause sets in with low energy, libido, muscle strength and weight gain. The lack of testosterone also contribute on many other levels to accelerated ageing.
Longiva Medical Institute is an integrative health and wellness clinic designed with the modern individual in mind.
