The name Body Science Centers comes from the 5 vital components that impact optimal health and well-being. Hormones, nutrition, fitness, the environment and genetics make up our “body science” and help determine how well a person will or can age.
Body Science Centers offer a Healthy Aging Program that includes an assessment of all 5 elements that impact healthy aging (BSc5) along with a comprehensive hormone assessment and nutritional assessment. Leading the program is Medical Director, Dr. Gus Zachos, Board Certified through the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and Regenerative Medicine and National Director of Nutrition Leslie Beck, a Registered Dietitian and one of Canada’s leading nutritionists. Various lab tests, such as blood and saliva tests, will be used to uncover exact levels of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol and other hormones. Imbalances can help to explain some of the symptoms of menopause, andropause (male menopause) and adrenal fatigue, such as Irritability, weight gain, sleep disturbances and reduced libido.
Dr. Gus Zachos, Medical Director of Body Science Centers, commented, “Hormones greatly impact our physical and emotional health and yet very few people actually know their hormone levels. In addition they impact our ability to perform at our highest capacity as we age. Changes can begin as early as the mid thirties and hormone imbalance can impact our moods, sleeping patterns, our weight and all aspects of our physical performance. At Body Science Centers, we help individuals learn about what is going on inside their body and as a team of health care professionals, we work with them to correct imbalances, helping them to feel younger, energetic and live a healthy active life”.
Leslie Beck, will be providing nutritional services, an integral part of the Healthy Aging program and continue to offer her highly sought after nutrition and weight loss programs at Body Science Centers. “I am excited to join the Body Science team and help our patients maximize their genetic potential for aging well. I also look forward to continuing to serve clients, providing diet and nutrition advice, personalized meal plans and ongoing coaching”.
