Healthy Aging/Wellness

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Healthy Aging/Wellness

The aging process involves an ongoing decline in functions and increased risk for diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s. The aging process can be measured at the cellular level by the gradual shortening of telomeres, which are responsible for maintaining stability and the cell’s activity. Telomeres get shorter each time a cell copies itself. Eventually, they become too short to do their job and stop working, become inactive, or die. A short telomere length can be a result of genetics but can also be caused by stress, decreased physical endurance, excessive BMI, smoking, chronic inflammation, vitamin deficiency and oxidative stress. Once a cell stops dividing, it is considered a senescent cell. A buildup of inactive or senescent cells can cause disease. By delaying the telomeres from shortening, you can delay the aging process.

Our Approach to Healthy Aging/Wellness

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy decreases inflammation, oxygenates the entire body, stimulates the growth of new healthy blood vessels, stimulates collagen growth, increases antioxidant defense and releases stem cells, up to 800% more after twenty sessions. Research has shown that HBOT significantly increases the length of telomeres by over 20% and decreases the senescent cells by 10-37%. Research has also shown that a decline in cognition can begin as early as the 30th decade of life and that the brain uses 20% of the body’s oxygen. HBOT increases cerebral blood flow which can improve cognition, including attention, information processing speed and executive functioning. HBOT can also help with physical signs of aging by protecting against musculoskeletal degeneration by inhibiting bone and muscle loss, improving insulin sensitivity, and has a beneficial impact on the heart as aging progresses.

Naturopathic Consultation

Our Naturopathic Doctor offers nutritional counseling, herbal, and supplement options based on blood work and symptom profile. She also provides specialty testing that includes MaxGen nutritional genetics testing as well as neurotransmitter testing. She has extensive experience in Family Medicine and Functional Medicine. Her goal is to achieve optimal health and wellness by getting to the root cause of the symptoms.

Functional Medicine Consult

Functional Medicine sees the patient as a physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual being. Functional and Integrative Medicine combines Western Medicine, complementary medicine, and non-pharmacologic treatments. Dr. Maduro’s philosophy is that we are fundamentally designed to heal. In Functional Medicine, we work with cognitive decline, biometrics, cardiac metabolism, environmental health, and the gastrointestinal tract. These are the main causes of health decline in western society due to poor nutrition, stress related functions, hormonal imbalances, and immunological disbalances.
