People live longer and want to be healthier to enjoy life and be productive members of their families and communities. Growing older now, however, can be both confusing and challenging. The number of choices and decisions we have to make is dizzying. Because of this, we have expanded our 30-year Family Practice to encompass Anti-aging Medicine. — Dr. Linda Marraccini
Dr. Marraccini has received her Certification in Anti-aging Medicine from the American Academy of Anti-aging Medicine. The Academy includes physicians and scientists from 65 countries who combine their knowledge and expertise with the express mandate of advancing therapeutics related to the science of longevity medicine.
If you have had your cholesterol tested, taken a lipid-lowering drug, had a mammogram, or taken hormone replacement therapy (HRT) with thyroid, testosterone, estrogen, melatonin, or DHEA, you have experienced Anti-aging medicine. This form of medicine is based on the very early detection, prevention, and reversal of age-related disease. Ninety percent of all adult illness is due to the degenerative processes of aging. This includes heart disease, most cancers, adult-onset diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, autoimmune disease, glaucoma, and Alzheimer’s.
With early detection and appropriate intervention, most of these diseases can be prevented, cured, or have their downward course reversed.
