Anti Aging Vancouver
Are you beginning to feel the effects of aging? What if you could drop 20 years or more and stay that way, adding an additional 20 to 30 years to your life span?
The Age Management program at Integrative Healing Arts can help
Research has shown that hormone levels begin to drop with age. Consistent with this decline in hormone levels is the deterioration of major organs and an increase in the symptoms of aging - elevated cholesterol, increased blood pressure, heart disease, increased body fat, decreased energy and stamina, decreased strength and muscle tone, arthritis, pain, wrinkles, thinning skin, and loss of sexual desire and function.
The body’s production of HGH falls 80%from age 21 to 61.
Remarkable breakthroughs indicate that physical deterioration is not a requirement of aging, and that this process can be effectively managed and reversed with the application of new options including:
- Total Hormone Balancing
- Nootropics for Brain Rejuvenation
- Nutriceutical Optimization
- Systemic Energetic Balancing
What the Age Management Program involves
Why is Nutrition Important?
Aging is the result of the progressive depletion of vital anti-aging nutrients leading to a deterioration of cellular homeostatic and genetic processes. Current research suggests that malabsorbtion and malnourishment are precursors to age-related dysfunctions and disease states. Free radical reaction, toxicity, obesity and illness all result in accelerated aging.
The type and quality of foods you eat directly contribute to your overall health and well-being. Our Nutritional Consultation offers you one-to-one counselling to help you make dietary and lifestyle choices that will have a profound and long lasting effects on the quality of your life.
In depth skin analysis
Why is this Important?
Normal aging, stress, as well as exposure to sunlight, and unhealthy lifestyle choices affect your skin on an ongoing basis. As we age, our skin cell rejuvenation rate slows, leaving a build up of dead dull cells on the skins surface. An evaluation of your current dermatological status will allow for personalized and successful restorative skin treatments.

Life Style Assessment
Why is this Assessment Important to you?
Every time you are confronted with a stressor your body releases a cascade of stress hormones which sends a volley of signals to various parts of your body to prepare it for action. If this happens on a daily basis without physical release, stress can negatively affect the very network that is supposed to guard your health: your immune system.
Our Clinical Counsellor will suggest a variety of techniques designed to moderate your physical and psychological response to stress, which in turn supports healthy age management.
Some of the following techniques may be involved:
- Diaphragmatic Breathing
- Time Management
- Mindfulness Meditation
- Assertiveness Training
- Communication Skills
- Cognitive Reframing
Why is Exercise Important?
Exercise is like high octane fuel for your body stimulating your body’s ability to produce the hormones responsible for giving you your youthful vitality. Research has shown that exercise is important for promoting good health, functional independence, and quality of life in adults. In other words: exercise may help slow the aging process by preventing or reducing the chances of disease and disability.
Your Personalized Program:
Even if you have not been active in a while or are new to exercise, the fitness trainer we will refer you to will be able to design a very personal program that will contribute to your overall Age Management and Life Enhancement program. The fitness trainer will meet with you for your personal consultation and fitness assessment and will evaluate your cardiovascular health, joint flexibility, and muscle strength through physical testing. At the end of the assessment, you will receive a fitness evaluation report. This information will then be incorporated into your Age Management program. Further personal training sessions can be arranged independently by talking with the trainer.
