LIve Better... Longer
Wouldn’t it be great if we could all die young . . . late in life?
As members of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Physicians, we know that there really is no such thing as anti-aging – but we also know that although we all have to get old, you don’t have to get sick and old!
Science is beginning to reveal that vibrant energy, mental clarity, freedom from pain, lowered disease risk and good sex are possible late into life if we work on it. Although modern medicine has extended our lifespan – it hasn’t exended our health span! (Health span is the time you spend health, happy and fruitful)
At Health Builders Wellness Center, our focus is on extending and optimizing your health span. Our bio-marker longevity plan involves measuring dozens of “bio-markers” – tests that when considered all together – identify how healthy you are aging. And anti-aging isn’t for the aged, as 75% of health outcomes later in life are influenced while you are in your 30s, 40s and 50s.
Arterial Elasticity Index (hardening of the arteries) The Arterial Elasticity Index (AEI) is a test that measures the flexibility or hardness of arteries: this is different than arterial blockage. The AEI is measured with a modified blood pressure cuff that measures the extent of arteriosclerosis (hardness) of arteries. Using AEI, alongside conventional cardiovascular markers, we can precisely monitor your response to natural and conventional therapies. Are chelation, diet and exercise working?
Let’s find out!
