There is a general consensus among medical practitioners that about sixty – five percent of our health as we age is dominated by predetermined genetics or DNA. The remaining thirty – five percent is determined by environmental and life style factors that accumulate over time as we become older.
At the Costagenics we focus on the thirty – five percent of our health that is effected by environmental and lifestyle choices people make as they advance in years through life.
At the Costagenics we focus on six basic categories to insure that our patients can maximize the quality of their lives as they advance through the aging process. These categories are prevention, nutrition, exercise, hormone replacement, emotional wellbeing, and mental acuity.
Prevention: Unfortunately most male patients in their thirties, forties, fifties, and sixties do not visit a medical doctor until they have a problem and often the problem can have progressed to a grave condition with a negative prognosis.
At The Costagenics all of our patients participating in our anti – aging program are required to have a thorough medical exam and a panel of blood tests one time per year. This insures our patients that early signs of cardiovascular disease, prostrate cancer, and diabetes can be detected in the early stages and cured without requiring invasive surgeries or expensive medications.
Nutrition: At the Costagenics all patients body weight, percentage of body fat, metabolic weight, and metabolic age are measured and documented. Goals are established for our patients body fat levels, blood pressure, and cholesterol. Patients have the opportunity to meet with our nutritionist to design a custom diet plan suitable to the patients current state of health and their goals. Patients are educated as to what food products can be detrimental to their health and long term well being.
Exercise: At The Costagenics all patients make a commitment to a well -rounded exercise program incorporating aerobic, anaerobic, and resistance training. Under the guidance of one of our licensed physical trainers patients have a custom designed exercise program to insure that they can fulfill their goals to look and feel younger.
Hormone Replacement: At the Costagenics our goal is to elevate our patients levels of human growth hormone HGH and testosterone to the levels they had in their early twenties. Our goal is to elevate human growth hormone levels to a IGF – 1 factor of 350 and a total testosterone level of 1200. The combined effects of hormone replacement yield a substantial amount of benefits including increased recovery and healing. Increased energy and stamina, muscle mass, declines in body fat,increased bone density, increased libido are just some of the benefits derived from hormone replacement.
Emotional Well Being and Mental Acuity: It is important for all retired patients to be engaged socially and mentally. Having a significant other and maintaining regular social contact with family and friends insures emotional stability and a feeling of well being and happiness. Mental acuity can be maintained by engaging in provocative behavior such as reading, writing, painting, hobbies, math games, learning a new language or instrument. Excess time invested in watching typical network television programs does not provide the same level of stimulation as engaging in activities that require focus and concentration.
Aging is inevitable, however, looking and feeling old for your age is your personal decision. At the Costagenics our goal is to enable our patients to have long active and fulfilling lives.
Patients that embrace our formula will maximize the quality of their lives.
