Anti-Aging Medicine

What is anti-aging medicine?

Anti-aging medicine refers to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of age-related health conditions. Anti-aging medicine often includes therapeutic protocols, complementary or functional medicine techniques, and preventive, proactive methods and lifestyle changes. Dr. Barnett takes a holistic, balanced approach to treating health conditions associated with the aging process.

As a naturopathic physician and acupuncturist, Dr. Barnett educates patients of all ages on the anti-aging benefits of acupuncture and dietary detox as part of a whole-person approach to not only the aging process itself, but also for your overall health and well-being.

How does acupuncture help with the aging process?

Acupuncture, a 3,000-year-old integral part of traditional Chinese medicine, has many benefits that help prevent the numerous adverse effects of aging.

Acupuncture can:

  • Promote your body’s natural ability to heal itself from disease or health conditions
  • Improve the function of your endocrine, immune, cardiovascular, and nervous systems
  • Improve digestion
  • Improve blood flow
  • Hydrate your skin and diminish wrinkles
  • Relieve age-related painful conditions, such as arthritis, knee pain, and low back pain

How is dietary detox a part of anti-aging medicine?

Eating the right foods for your body is an essential factor in preventing disease and slowing down the aging process. One basic tenet of an anti-aging plan is that antioxidant-rich foods, such as fruits and vegetables, can help fight wrinkles and keep your skin hydrated.

Dr. Barnett’s dietary detoxification is a six-week cleansing program that helps your body “take a break” from any unhealthy foods you normally eat, so you can introduce healthy nutrients found in real, whole foods. She designs a customized detox diet with your lifestyle in mind, so you can balance your diet and eat the health-promoting foods that work best with your system and slow the effects of aging on your body.

Dietary detox also incorporates acupuncture as a way to get the maximum benefit from the detoxification process. Acupuncture stimulates the movement of toxins that have accumulated in your tissues and organs, so your body can flush them out more easily. Acupuncture treatments may also help curb food cravings and stabilize blood sugar levels while you undergo the detoxification program.

Dr. Barnett’s detox and acupuncture treatment plan helps you achieve your health goals and addresses your overall wellness and anti-aging concerns. You’ll feel empowered with the knowledge of what to add and subtract from your diet to get the nutrients your body needs to stay young and vibrant.
