Anti-Aging and Wellness Services
Charles Moss, M.D. is a local La Jolla functional medicine specialist who will work in partnership with you to discover the root cause of your health imbalance. By working with the root cause of what is causing you to feel unwell, you are able to eliminate multiple uncomfortable symptoms by treating one condition. This approach to healthcare reduces the chances of you being treated for multiple symptoms that all have the same underlying cause. Functional medicine doctors are able to work this way because they understand that health is complex and interrelated to each person’s biology, genetic predispositions, lifestyle and environment. By taking each aspect of your health into consideration, you are given a treatment plan customized to you that heals you at the deepest level.
As part of a functional medicine treatment plan, your doctor offers a wide-range of services to ensure that your unique needs are met. Each different service addresses separate aspects of your health so that you are able to heal on all levels. Your functional medicine doctor works diligently to address the root cause of your disease. Don’t get stuck treating each separate symptom when you can treat one condition that heals them all! Talk to your doctor today about how to begin your functional medicine treatment plan.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) may be a part of a functional medicine treatment plan. As your body ages, the stresses of daily life catch up with you and your body stops being able to produce hormones as well as it used to. When your endocrine system does not function as it should, we do not get the correct hormones in the correct doses when we need them. This causes a whole host of problems that affect your physical, emotional and mental states. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, unlike synthetic hormone therapy, uses hormones that exactly match the chemical composition of the hormones produced by your body. Your local functional medicine and BHRT practitioner specializes in using these natural hormones to balance your body without any unwanted side effects. By bringing your body back into hormonal balance you will feel better, look healthier, and be revitalized.
As we age, we stop being able to absorb the minerals and nutrients we need to stay healthy. Because your food must be digested before nutrients can be absorbed, many important amino acids, vitamins, and minerals are not able to get used by your body. Intravenous (IV) Nutrient Therapy circumvents your digestive system by depositing the nutrients your body needs directly into your blood, allowing your body to immediately absorb the nutrition it is missing. When your body is not getting the nutrition it needs, it doesn’t function, look or feel as good as it should. Your local functional medicine practitioner works with you to identify exactly what nutrients you are missing, and in what amounts, so that you are able to get a customized IV Therapy treatment plan started. Intravenous Nutrient Therapy treats the common cold, helps muscles repair faster after workouts, and hydrates, energizes, and heals. Read more about how IV Nutritional Therapy can help you.
