Take Control of the Rate at Which You Age
Genes are important in our medical fate and lifespan, but the good news is that they can be switched on or off by lifestyle choices and environmental factors. That’s right—you don’t have to be stuck with your genes. At RevitaLife Health & Wellness, we develop an understanding of how a person’s genes influence their health and equip our patients to command these genes. After spending considerable time with our patients and reviewing a myriad of test results, we help our patients decrease their risks of developing chronic, life-shortening diseases.
How Age Management Medicine Works
Age Management Medicine focuses on optimizing health and delaying or removing degenerative aging by using precision medicine, breakthrough technologies, evidence-based/customized modalities and solid science. This science proves that lifestyle and environmental factors modulate the genetic influence on the aging process. At RevitaLife, we empower our patients to reject the tyranny of the aging process by strategically intervening and modifying many of the aspects associated with accelerated aging.
The Cause of Aging and Age-Related Illnesses
Chronological age—how many years have passed since your birth—is merely a number that has little relevance to how you feel and function. Biological age, however, is a more accurate indicator and predictor of health. The way your cells react to lifestyle choices and environmental factors directly influences the pace at which you age and your propensity for developing age-related diseases like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and cancer. By supporting the resiliency of your cells, the aging process can be slowed down.
Determining Your Biological Age
An invaluable tool for age management is the TruAge DNA diagnostic tool. It tests over 850,000 spots on the DNA genome to determine how fast you are aging and what your biological age is. Since biological age is the top predictor of nearly all age-related diseases, taking the TruAge tests makes turning back the hands of your biological clock absolutely possible and measurable. After reviewing your TruAge test results, Dr. Peláez will have much of the information he needs to develop a personalized plan for optimizing your health and delaying aging.
Meet Dr. Jorge Peláez
Throughout his lengthy career, Dr. Jorge Peláez has held board certifications in Psychiatry and Neurology, Clinical Neurophysiology, Sleep Medicine, Age Management and Anti-Aging Medicine. As a current fellow of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and a member of the American College of Nutrition, his impressive credentials pale in comparison to his passion for helping his patients achieve optimal health and happiness. He views himself as a coach and a friend to his patients on their paths toward better vitality. Embracing the fact that no two patients are alike, Dr. Peláez spends as much time as necessary getting to the root causes of problems rather than treating symptoms.
Take a Proactive Approach to Aging
Integrative medicine involves understanding a patient’s unique health indicators and taking a proactive approach to aging. On the other hand, traditional medicine tends to offer medications to mask symptoms of aging without delving into what may be causing those symptoms. At RevitaLife Health & Wellness, we reject the notion that aging is the same biological process that we have felt that we have understood for generations. Thanks to new testing tools and breakthrough technologies, we can live better, in every sense. By considering the five pillars of health—nutrition, hormone health, fitness, detoxification and mind/nervous system enhancement—in the development of every treatment plan, we are capable of providing our patients with a signature program that meets their specific needs.
