• Longevity Medicine/Anti-Aging Solutions
Longevity Medicine
At the Institute for Human Optimization, our focus is on longevity medicine and helping our patients live longer, healthier lives. Longevity medicine, also known as anti-aging or lifespan medicine, is a relatively new field that aims to extend healthy lifespan by preventing age-related diseases and promoting optimal health throughout the aging process. It goes beyond traditional healthcare approaches that focus solely on treating existing medical conditions and instead takes a proactive approach towards improving overall health and preventing disease.

Longevity Medicine is based on the premise that many of the diseases associated with aging are preventable and treatable. By targeting the underlying causes of these diseases, it is possible to slow down the aging process and improve quality of life.


One of the key concepts in longevity medicine is the difference between biological age and chronological age.

Chronological age is the number of years a person has been alive. Biological age, on the other hand, is a measure of how well a person’s body is functioning. 

It is possible for someone’s chronological age to be different from their biological age. For example, a 60-year-old who is in good health and has no chronic diseases may have the biological age of a 40-year-old. 

Similarly, a 30-year-old who smokes cigarettes, doesn’t exercise, and has high blood pressure may have the biological age of a 50-year-old.

There are a number of factors that can influence biological age, including lifestyle choices, genetic factors, and exposure to environmental toxins.

By understanding the difference between chronological age and biological age, it is possible to target interventions specifically at those factors that are contributing to accelerated aging. This, in turn, can help to slow down the aging process and improve quality of life.

There are a number of different therapies that we offer at the Institute for Human Optimization that can help to improve longevity and quality of life.

12 Hallmarks of Aging

Central to our practice longevity medicine is our clinical understanding of the biological processes that drive aging,  referred to as the “hallmarks of aging.”

These hallmarks are the known underlying mechanisms that contribute to age-related decline and disease, and targeting them is key to prolonging healthy lifespan. Knowing your health status against these hallmarks can help guide precise interventions to optimize longevity and prevent age-related diseases.

These include:
  • Genomic Instability

  • Telomere Attrition

  • Epigenetic Alteration

  • Loss of Proteostatis

  • Disabled Microautophagy

  • Deregulated Nutrient-sensing

  • Mitochondrial Dysfunction

  • Cellular Senescence

  • Stem Cell Exhaustion

  • Altered Intercellular Communication

  • Chronic Inflammation

  • Dysbiosis

Medicine 3.0 – Focus on Health Optimization

At the Institute for Human Optimization, we believe in a transformative approach to healthcare that prioritizes health optimization. This paradigm shift focuses on proactive measures to maintain peak physical, mental, and emotional well-being, rather than solely managing diseases after they arise.

Our Pillars of Health Optimization

  2. Precision Prevention: Leveraging the latest state-of-the-art diagnostics and advanced early detection screenings we seek to find your bio-individuals risk to make precise recommendations to prevent the preventable.
  3. Reverse the Reversible: We believe you can die of disease of with disease. Together we work to optimize your health and reverse what is possible through modern medicine, advanced therapies, and lifestyle modifications.
  4. Data-Driven Apprach: Utilizing the latest advancements in technology and diagnostics for a proactive approach to health management.
  5. Patient Empowerment: Encouraging individuals to take an active role to become the CEO of their own health. We provide the education and resources to help our patients make informed decisions about their health and wellness practices.

Our primary focus of longevity medicine is to optimize human health. Aging should not be synonymous with disease. Our approach is based on the latest advancements in scientific research, diagnostics, and cutting-edge technology.


Nutritional therapy is another effective way to improve longevity and quality of life. As we age, our bodies become less efficient at absorbing nutrients from food. This can lead to deficiencies in vitamins and minerals that are essential for good health. Nutritional therapy involves correcting these deficiencies through diet, supplements, and/or IV therapy. Nutritional therapy may be used to help a wide range of conditions, including fatigue, anxiety, depression, and memory loss. At the Institute for Human Optimization, we offer a variety of nutritional therapies, including IV therapy, supplement protocols, and customized meal plans.

IV therapy is a type of nutritional therapy that involves administering vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients directly into the bloodstream via the form of an IV. IV therapy bypasses the digestive system, which means that 100% of the nutrients are absorbed by the body. IV therapy is an effective way to treat nutrient deficiencies and can also be used for hydration, detoxification, and anti-aging. At the Institute for Human Optimization, we offer a wide variety of IV therapies, including but not limited to Myers’ Cocktail, glutathione, and vitamin C.

NAD+ stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. NAD+ is a coenzyme that plays a vital role in metabolism, DNA repair, and energy production. As we age, our levels of NAD+ decline, which can lead to a number of age-related diseases. NAD+ therapy is a type of treatment that involves increasing levels of NAD+ in the body. NAD+ therapy has been shown to be effective in supporting a variety of conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and Huntington’s disease. At the Institute for Human Optimization, we offer NAD+ therapy in the form of IV infusions and oral supplementation.

Biological age reversal is a type of therapy that is designed to slow down the aging process and improve longevity. Biological age reversal works by targeting the factors that contribute to accelerated aging.

Peptide therapy is a powerful component of our regenerative and longevity medicine programs at the Institute for Human Optimization. Peptides are short chains of amino acids that serve as the building blocks for proteins and play crucial roles in numerous biological processes. By supplementing with specific peptides, we can target various aspects of health and well-being, from enhancing tissue repair and reducing inflammation to improving cognitive function and boosting metabolism. Our medical team carefully select peptide protocols tailored to individual needs, ensuring optimal outcomes.

Telomeres are the protective caps at the ends of our chromosomes. They play an important role in cell division and aging. As we age, our telomeres get shorter and shorter. This can lead to a number of age-related diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, and dementia. Telomere testing is a way to measure the length of your telomeres. Telomere therapy is a type of treatment that involves lengthening your telomeres. These are just a few of the therapies we offer at the Institute for Human Optimization. If you’re interested in learning more about our therapies, or if you would like to schedule a consultation, please contact us today. We look forward to helping you achieve your optimal health!

At the Institute for Human Optimization, regenerative medicine is at the forefront of our services and therapies. This innovative field focuses on repairing, replacing, and regenerating damaged tissues using advanced techniques available today. Our goal is to harness the body’s natural healing processes to restore function and improve the quality of life for our patients. By leveraging cutting-edge technology and a deep understanding of human biology, we aim to push the boundaries of what’s possible in medical science.

Aging is characterized by the progressive loss of physiological capacity. At the cellular level, two key hallmarks of the aging process include telomere length shortening and cellular senescence. Repeated intermittent hyperoxic exposures, using certain hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) protocols, can induce regenerative effects which normally occur during hypoxia.  These regenerative effects may extend to the senescent cells, in which cell cycle arrest is maintained by high levels of oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction. By stimulating cellular repair mechanisms, HBOT may delay or reverse the aging process and improve overall healthspan.

VO2 Max testing is a foundational element of our approach to optimizing health and longevity. This gold standard test measures the maximum amount of oxygen that an individual can utilize during intense exercise, providing valuable insights into their cardiovascular fitness and overall health. By accurately assessing VO2 max, we can identify potential cardiovascular or respiratory issues and develop personalized exercise plans to improve fitness levels. Regular VO2 max testing also allows us to track progress over time and make necessary adjustments to optimize performance and promote long-term health.
