Healthy Aging Program San Diego
The natural aging process brings about a great deal of changes to a person’s body. Over the course of time, these changes can adversely affect how you look and your overall quality of life. Fortunately, Dr. Jim Fontaine helps people in San Diego and Del Mar age gracefully with a customized healthy aging program.
What is a Healthy Aging Program?
As you age, it is common to have issues such as weight gain, abdominal obesity, fatigue, decreased muscle mass, and poor sleep. In our Healthy Aging program, we optimize your hormones with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to address these issues and get you feeling great again. However, we do much more than just hormones. We optimize your nutrition and exercise which are an integral part of aging with health. We use a proactive preventative medicine approach to decrease your risk of the common chronic diseases that affect millions of Americans – cardiovascular disease, diabetes and dementia.
Dr. Fontaine has been trained in the Bale-Doneen method of cardiovascular disease prevention as well as the Bredesen Protocol for reversing cognitive decline and dementia including that associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
Beginning Your Healthy Aging Program
Before you can begin your healthy aging program, you must first schedule a consultation with Dr. Fontaine. Your initial Healthy Aging consultation includes:
- Thorough medical history.
- Body composition analysis.
- Review of comprehensive lab panel.
- Carotid ultrasound to determine carotid intima-mediaintima media thickness (CIMT) which assesses atherosclerosis. This is an important screening test as 75 percent of heart attacks occur in people with normal cholesterol.
- A treatment plan specific to you with the goal of making you feel better while decreasing your risk of chronic disease
How Much Does the Healthy Aging Program Cost?
The healthy aging program is customized to fit the individual needs of each patient. We’ll develop an appropriate treatment plan for your specific needs and talk to you about the cost of your personalized program during your consultation.
