Aging is a natural process that has been contorted into something ugly and scary; the act of "aging gracefully" seems to be a fantasy.
As people age, they tend to peak physically, slowly spiraling downward from that point on. Matrix Age Management provides a proactive, preventative program that stops the descent and brings you back to a pinnacle of health and happiness.
This "normal" aging trajectory is not normal at all. At Matrix Age Management, we want to see our patients reach a personal height of fitness and health, and maintain it the rest of their lives. We provide a proactive, preventive program that stops the descent and brings you back to a pinnacle of health and happiness.
Our process starts with a consultation. In the consultation, you learn the ins and outs of Matrix Age Management, while Dr. Patrick Proffer sits down with you and gets to know your goals and specific concerns. From there, Dr. Proffer will perform an extensive laboratory workup to identify advanced biomarkers and genetic predispositions.
The Age Management team will examine the current status of each of the following aspects in your life and design a plan for optimizing each: sleep and stress management techniques, proper nutrition, individualized exercise plan, optimal hormone levels, and pharmaceutical grade supplements.
Lifestyle modifications to incorporate these five elements will help you unlock your inner athlete, and age with health and grace.
Good sleep habits and stress management are vital health components to an improved quality of life, adequate weight loss, faster muscle recovery, and increased longevity. In today's busy world, the problems of insufficient sleep are common; they can derail the benefits of proper diet and exercise.
There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to diet. Genetics, current health status, disease prevention needs, and outcome goals make our dietary needs different. Regardless, whole food nutrition can have a positive impact our health future. Each food choice impacts our long term health.
Personalize your exercise routine. Long hours spent doing the “wrong” exercises, like chronic cardio, can impede results and even cause injuries. Identify your unique target outcome and personal goals to exercise smarter, not longer. Having an individualized program will help you maximize your fitness gains.
Hormones, our bodies' master communicators, decline with age. But these waning levels can be attenuated and even reversed to correct decreased libido, declining muscle mass, and lack of motivation. Fight middle age decline by closely monitoring blood levels and physical symptoms to find your point of optimal functioning.
Even if you eat healthy, wholesome foods, you may still experience vitamin and mineral deficiencies. The right supplements can improve well-being, prevent illness, and optimize body function. It's essential to use pharmaceutical grade supplements to ensure quality. Over-the-counter options don't always offer what is advertised.
