Dr. Castellano has spent years reviewing the medical literature to bring you a complete wellness program that can lead to extending the healthy, active, fun part of your life and deferring illness, frailty, and disability to the very end. This evaluation requires that we perform and extensive battery of laboratory tests to evaluate how well your body is functioning. We evaluate your hormonal system because optimal levels of certain hormones are associate with less degenerative diseases, and increased function and longevity.
Most chronic diseases, from diabetes to cardiovascular disease and cancer, are related to what we eat. Consuming a balanced diet that meets the RDA servings of fruits, vegetables, grains, fats, and protein does not ensure sufficient nutrient intake for optimal health. Even conservative medical journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine and Journal of the American Medical Association recommend that adults supplement their diets. We will show you how to implement the correct diet along with appropriate multi-vitamin and mineral supplements to ensure that all nutritional needs are met.
Our program is designed to improve how you look on the outside as well as how you function on the inside. You will lose body fat, gain muscle, strengthen your bones, and improve your overall health. As I tell my patients, you can pour gasoline (hormones) on wood (your body) all day and at the end of the day, all you’ll have it wet wood. Exercise is the match that lights the fuel. Appropriate exercise regimes will be addressed. The goal is to have you feeling better within 4-8 wks. Symptom resolution as well as slowing the physiologic decline of your body is the benefit of this comprehensive program.
