What can I expect during an anti-aging evaluation?

How important is exercise for anti-aging?

Dr. Emery recommends regular exercise programs to his patients for improved flexibility, strength, and overall health to slow the progression of aging. For general health, he recommends at least 30 minutes of regular activity most days a week.

Dr. Emery knows that you may not be physically fit when you first come to see him. He tailors a realistic regimen for you to help you reach your goals.

What are nutraceuticals?

Nutraceuticals are nutrients found in food and supplements that promote health and protect against aging. They include nutrients such as the friendly bacteria in yogurt and omega-3 fatty acids in salmon and tuna.

Dr. Emery uses nutraceuticals as an anti-aging strategy and tool to improve overall health. He may recommend including certain foods in your diet for better nutrition or taking supplementations to improve nutrient intake.

What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is an anti-aging treatment available at Pacific Wellness of Ventura. During treatment, you breathe in pure oxygen while lying in a pressurized tube.

Under these conditions, your lungs can take in larger amounts of oxygen. Saturating your body with oxygen reduces bacteria and stimulates your body’s release of growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing and regeneration of new tissue.

Dr. Emery may recommend hyperbaric oxygen therapy to:

  • Improve blood counts
  • Heal wounds
  • Improve vision and hearing health
  • Help you rehabilitate from illness or disease
