What Is Anti-Aging Medicine?
Anti-aging medicine therapies are addressed by specialists trained in treating conditions associated with aging. These include enhancing the libido, building a stronger immune system, improving brain function, and even prolonging life.
What Are the Signs of Aging?
Many signs of aging vary with each individual. In addition to the obvious physical signs of aging such as wrinkles, some of the most prevalent are as follows:
- Slower metabolism
- High blood pressure
- Low testosterone
- Acid reflux
- Coronary issues
- Autoimmune diseases
How Does Functional Medicine Treat Aging Conditions?
Functional medicine treats health conditions related to aging by getting to the root of the cause of the conditions. Through a series of tests and evaluations, functional medicine physicians are able to not only diagnose the condition but determine the cause of the condition and treat that through a custom-tailored plan that, in some cases, may even reverse it rather than simply suppress the symptoms.
Anti-aging functional medicine uses telomere testing to determine the speed at which patients are aging. A telomere is a part of the DNA at the end of each chromosome that protects the chromosome from deterioration. As the body ages, the telomeres become shorter; lifestyle, diet, and environmental factors can also affect the length of telomeres. The shorter the telomeres, the less protection they provide which results in a shorter lifespan for cells. Through telomere testing, Dr. Falcone can determine how rapidly patients are aging and then design therapeutic plans that may slow the shortening of telomeres, addressing many age-related diseases.
What Is the Cost of Treating Aging Conditions with Functional Medicine?
At the Falcone Center, the cost for treating patients in Philadelphia, PA, Maple Shade, NJ, and the surrounding area is based on the appointment. Deposit is due when scheduling initial appointment.
It is important to note that the Falcone Center does not accept insurance as it is considered an “out-of-network provider” by most major insurance plans. While we cannot file insurance claims on our patients’ behalf, we can easily provide them with receipts and the necessary paperwork to file for reimbursement. We suggest that our patients determine whether their plans cover functional medicine prior to making an appointment.
