In Age Management Medicine addresses the health of a patient in a comprehensive manner. Although the main focus is on primary prevention (before the disease appears), many people have concurrent diseases or risk factors, usually unknown to them.
Preventive and Therapeutic Medicine is a fundamental cornerstone of Antiaging Preventive Medicine and of our programs.
At Neolife, we develop individualized programs, from the perspective of Preventive and Therapeutic Medicine, for those individuals that:
At Neolife, we seek health in the broadest sense, a definition that the World Health Organization (WHO) has held for over 70 years, but which has not always been applied: “Health is a state of perfect (complete) physical, mental, and social well-being, and not only the absence of illness“.
In our desire to help our patients achieve an optimal state of health, we act at these two levels, which are actually two moments within the natural progression of the disease.
Preventive medicine includes all those treatments aimed at preventing the disease from occurring, or even the predisposing risk factor for such illness.
The study of body biomarkers indicates the predisposition of a particular individual to develop a disease or risk factor: obesity, high blood pressure, dyslipidemia, diabetes, etc.
Preventive plans, such as lifestyle modifications or nutritional and hormonal supplementation, directly affect these risk factors, and help prevent associated diseases.
The term therapeutic medicine includes all actions aimed at the treatment of existing diseases or risk factors.
This is obviously an easier concept to understand, as it is more closely linked to conventional medicine, where the patient arrives with a disease and the doctor treats it.
Age Management Medicine attempts to reverse many processes, for which traditional medicine would prescribe powerful drugs (with their potential adverse effects), by improving lifestyle habits, nutritional supplementation, and hormone replacement, in addition to the use of medications when necessary.
At Neolife, we have powerful tools to carry out our preventive and therapeutic medicine plans. These include a team of experts in multiple specialties, a medical advisory team, and a wide range of medical tests that are available to the patient:
Our team of specialists (physicians, nutritionists, nurses, etc.) cover different areas of medicine. Not only are they extensively trained in Age Management Medicine, but thanks to their diverse medical specialties, academic training, and previous experience, they are also able to address other disciplines, broadening the horizons of the Antiaging Preventive Medicine.
We have a team of advisory specialists, to whom we can refer those areas in which we are not experts. In this way, we never “abandon” the client when their pathology needs to be treated by a specialist, other than one available at Neolife. Our advisory team consists of recognized professionals, allowing us to always guide our customers through any health problem that may arise: urology, gynecology, cardiology, etc.
Our medical team will place at the disposal of our clients, all existing preventive and/or diagnostic tests, whether they are performed internally in our clinics, or externally in another laboratory or hospital, with which we have a strategic alliance, or are chosen by our own clients.
Neolife’s main goal is to disease prevention and improving the quality of life. And Preventive and Therapeutic Medicine is the common link to the other cornerstones of Age Management Medicine: lifestyle habits, nutrition, rest, nutritional supplementation, metabolic-hormonal balance, and longitudinal control of biomarkers.
At Neolife, we study hundreds of biomarkers in our checkups, in a completely personalized way for each patient: medical history, validated questionnaires, lab test results, imaging tests (CT, MRI, ultrasound), genetic and body composition studies, etc.
Based on the results, an action plan is proposed to the patient that includes lifestyle modifications (exercise and eating habits, control of toxic substances, stress management), use of supplementation, restoration of hormone levels to optimal physiological values (through the use of bioidentical hormones), medication necessary in each case, etc.
The analysis of hundreds of biomarkers is carried out jointly by the Medical and Nutrition teams. However, the interpretation of the results does not end there: in addition to the weekly medical and nutritional follow-up sessions, our team relies on experts from every medical specialty, to provide a comprehensive approach to every patient.
The joint application of preventive and therapeutic medicine, over time, allows us to optimize the patient’s health in the short, medium, and long term. A longitudinal follow-up is carried out throughout the patient’s life, so that we can intervene throughout the natural progression of the disease, achieving an optimal, independent, valid, and vital state of health as the patient ages.
At Neolife, in addition to the use of medications, when necessary, we understand the power of healthy habits, supplementation, and hormone replacement therapy with bioidentical hormones, to reverse many processes for which traditional medicine would prescribe powerful drugs, with their potential adverse effects.
Our medical protocols are always based on scientific literature. In addition, the target values of our therapeutic actions are stricter than those of “traditional” medicine.
