Lake Mary, FL (PRWEB) June 06, 2013
As many researchers and scientists strive to find cures for common age-related diseases such as Alzheimer's, cancer, and heart disease, many people in their 50s and 60s who are relatively healthy can still feel weak and tired. Now, there is a new four-pronged approach from Dr. Daniel Thomas, a Lake Mary, Florida physician who specializes in metabolic and nutritional medicine. This new program is designed to help people feel energetic and youthful regardless of age. All of this is done sans synthetic pharmaceuticals and invasive procedures.
Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine is an important field that focuses on the prevention and treatment of age-related decline. It is well supported by peer-reviewed medical and scientific journals, and utilizes individualized, evidence-based protocols that address the very source of the problem in individual patients.
“The traditional medical view of aging is one that expects you to eventually suffer from ‘inevitable’ complications and a steady decline in energy and quality of life. The truth is nobody wants to get or feel old.” says Dr. Thomas. “After studying metabolic and nutrition for many years, I’ve helped my patients regain their strength, vitality and return their bodies to a more optimal state.”
Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine combats the key underlying causes of disease and premature aging including hormone deficiency, oxidative stress, chronic inflammation, cellular membrane degradation, insulin resistance, and also promotes the body’s mechanisms of self-repair by stimulating the production of stem cells.
Dr. Thomas’ four-pronged approach includes the following:
- Natural Hormone Therapy
- Correcting Nutritional Deficiencies
- Lifestyle Modification
“I am grateful to Dr. Thomas who helped me to feel young again. I recommend (the program) for men and women who want to feel stronger, healthier and younger. It sure works wonders for my well-being,” said Diana D., a patient of Dr. Thomas.
1. Prescription Natural (Non-Synthetic) Hormone Therapy: Around age 40, many people begin to lose the ability to produce sufficient levels of hormones, until it reaches a point where it is difficult to keep up with the demands of daily living. The quality of life once took for granted, slowly slips away. Millions of men and women are living with sub-optimal hormone levels and do not even realize it. Restoring hormones to healthy physiologic levels is one of the safest and most effective ways to protect the body and brain as one ages.
2. Detoxification: The fact is, says Dr. Thomas, "we live in a toxic world and our bodies are under constant attack from disease-promoting free radicals. Reducing the burden of these harmful substances is crucial in order to keep your body young and healthy. Our program provides targeted support to enhance the function of the liver in two phases."
3. Correcting Nutritional Deficiencies: One of the most important things people to enhance overall health is to maintain a healthy diet. The notion that food can be the answer to many ills is not new – it goes back thousands of years. However, studies have shown that many of fruits and vegetables are relatively low in essential phytochemicals—natural compounds with the potential to reduce the risk of major diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and dementia. The program teaches patients how to eat in order to bring back necessary phytochemicals, and learn which vitamin supplements can truly increase your health and longevity so that people do not waste time or money on vitamins or supplements that do not work or may do harm.
4. Lifestyle Modification: "Engaging in regular physical activity is one of the most important things one can do for your health," says Dr. Thomas. "Our program includes a personalized fitness plan that takes half the time and offers twice the results. Our program also includes restoring sound sleep and effectively reducing stress, both of which may be more important that diet and exercise for health and longevity."
“Ironically, Americans have gotten so used to seeing unhealthy people, they think it’s normal. We need to understand that the “normal” state of humans is not being sick, not taking countless medications, and not visiting the doctor’s office on a frequent basis,” says Dr. Thomas.
