» Anti-Aging Therapy

The Bio Health Center Program for Anti-Aging therapy allows maximum flexibility for each individual to take advantage of the newest advances in Anti-Aging, Life Extension and Quality enhancing conventional medical and Homeopathic Integrative medical techniques. The choices are based on individual need and preference. Anti-Aging therapy consists of a number of different steps that include all or part of the following:

One of the most effective and dramatic methods of improving high quality life span is calorie restriction. A diet low in fat, especially animal fat, promotes health and Longevity. Natural vegetable products (Phyto-Nutrients) prevent cancer and other degenerative disease. Animal products, on the other hand, promote these conditions. The cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, broccoli, etc.) mustard family ( mustard greens, radishes, horse radish, etc.), allium family (garlic, onion, etc.), soy (soy milk, tofu, miso, etc.), sea vegetables (kombu. hizikia, etc.) and flax oil (high lignin) are all known to prevent cancer and other degenerative disease. Incorporating such Pro Life Span Nutrients into the diet regularly is encouraged in the Anti-Aging therapy.

For a healthy, longevity promoting diet Anti-Aging practitioners recommend a range of diets from low fat, high vegetable fiber, high complex carbohydrate content, such as the Macrobiotic, Pritikin or McDougall programs, to high protein, low carbohydrate diets for Insulin Resistance, depending on individual, specific metabolic typing. Small meals and frequent snacking are preferred over infrequent large meals to minimize toxic diet-related free radical storms. Regular aerobic and cross training exercise sessions are essential to Health and Longevity. In addition, ongoing research using External Counter-Pulsation Therapy (ECP) may enhance physical performance by improving brain, heart and other vital organ blood flow from the generalize "stiffening" associated with aging, thus improving overall metabolism. In addition, time for emotional, mental and spiritual Health and Well-being should be set aside regularly. The use of focused attention or "Stillness" exercises, such as recreational games, the martial arts, tai chi, yoga or meditation are essential for maintaining optimal mental function and alertness.

Antioxidant nutrients demonstrated to have the greatest beneficial Health and Longevity effects are vitamin A, the Carotenes, vitamin C, vitamin E and the mineral Selenium, collectively known by the acronym ACES. While it is possible to obtain enough Anti-Oxidants from a good diet, Physicians practicing Anti-Aging Medicine recommend that high quality supplements be used. The use of injectable supplements is also commonly employed for greater clinical effect. Higher levels can be achieved with injections and infusions. Both Quality and sufficiency should be satisfied in an individual program designed for optimal prevention and longevity. Additional Antioxidant Phytochemicals are also employed. Proanthocyanidins, sometimes called Pycnogenol™, have been found to be extremely effective. Coenzyme Q and L-Carnitine also have demonstrated benefits, as has Lipoic Acid. Dr. Edwards routinely uses Antioxidants in his Anti-Aging prescriptions.

One of the most exciting and effective new techniques in Anti Aging Therapy is the use of Hormone therapy. Aging is associated with a predictable decline in the function of numerous hormone producing glands. Thyroid, adrenal, pituitary, pineal, sex and thymus glands are all known to undergo age related involution of hormone production. The most common form of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is the use of estrogen in women during menopause. Modern Anti-Aging science now recognizes that replacing or supplementing hormone biological response modifiers such as Growth Hormone, Thyroid Hormone, Melatonin, Testosterone, DHEA and others can delay the onset of age related involution. The result is marked improvement in Quality of Life for the individual. In addition, ongoing research ECP Therapy may help male erectile dysfunction and female age-related loss of sexual climax by improving pelvic circulation and autonomic regulation.

All hormones used are Natural ("Bio Identical") Hormone therapy, when ever possible to minimize side effects. Using Pharmaceutical grade products ensures the highest possible Quality. There are two methods of utilizing Anti-Aging Hormone Therapy. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) maintains the blood level of each specific agent within a mean range for a specific age. Hormone Supplement Therapy (HST) use significantly smaller amounts to obtain the desired effect through the up-regulation of Hormone receptor sites. By using much smaller doses and not requiring as many laboratory tests, Hormone Supplement Therapy (HST) is more cost effective and has fewer side effects. Our practitioners use both methods.

The Hormones used in HRT / HST are individualized to each patient. Options include:

THYROID DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone)
MELATONIN GENDER SPECIFIC HORMONES (Estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone)

***Bio Health patients may also elect to utilize Homeopathic Hormone Supplement Therapy.


Nootropics assist in improving mental agility and intelligence. Also called "Smart Drugs," there are over a dozen pharmaceutical agents and nutrient compounds that have been scientifically demonstrated to improve memory, mental agility and ability. Nutrients such as vitamin B12 , Lecithin, Choline and N-Acetyl-L-Carnitine have cognitive enhancing and Anti-Aging protective effects. Prescription pharmaceuticals available include Hydergine™, Deprenyl™, Dilantin™, Deaner™, Procaine, Piracetam and others. Each of these can enhance cognitive function. The decision as to whether Nootropics should be used is made on an individual basis. In addition, Chelation and Bio-Oxidation Therapy have demonstrated a beneficial effect on age related cognitive dysfunction. Dr. Edwards and the certified staff of Bio Health Center also incorporate Nootropics, Chelation and Bio-Oxidation therapies into individualized Anti-Aging programs.


Research has confirmed an age related decline in lymphocyte cellular immune system function. This is one of the primary reasons for the increase in infections, cancers and auto-immune degenerative disease encountered as we age. Effective therapeutic techniques to reduce and reverse Age related Immune dysregulation have been developed . Bio-Oxidation Therapy has been demonstrated to enhance age related disorders of immunity. Ozone, Multiple Step Oxygen and Hydrogen Peroxide all have beneficial effects. Colostrum and Transfer Factor have also been used to successfully restore youthful cellular Immune function. In addition, Live Cell Therapy and Embryonic Cell Growth Factors can be employed for Immune stimulation. Certain Hormone Therapies may also be used for improved immune function. Bio Health Center employs all of these techniques for immune stimulation therapy.


In today's world it is important to look as good as one can. When one looks good they usually feel and perform better. There is a subtle psychology at work here. The use of Biological and Technological Therapeutic techniques to maintain or improve appearance can vary from simple hair coloring to eliminate graying, an Acupuncture Face-Lift or more dramatic plastic and cosmetic surgery. Skin appearance is the most common concern for most patients. Our practitioners offer nourishing Collagen and Elastin skin creams, Sea Vegetable Baths, Estrogen Anti Wrinkle cream and European Cosmetic Vein Sclerotherapy to maintain or restore more youthful appearance. In addition, sea vegetable can be used to eliminate unsightly cellulite. DHEA, Growth Hormone and Growth Hormone Releasers are available to reduce body fat. In addition, other uniquely designed nutrient formulas have been developed by Dr. Edwards to maintain skin youth and appearance.

The environment has increasingly been burdened with pollutants over the past 50 years. Many pollutants have direct or indirect aging effects. For example, Chlorine in water is known to dry skin and promote accelerated aging of tissue. Many man made chemicals cause injury and harm by promoting extreme free radical reactions. Numerous methods of detoxification for general, overall improvement in Well-being, as well as for specific organ detoxification and free radical control have been developed by our practitioners. The techniques of Chelation, Bio-Oxidation, Homeopathic Drainage, Homeopathy, Neural Therapy, Bioresonance Feedback, Bath therapy, Herbal therapy and Acupuncture are all useful in detoxification. These techniques form a unique system of overall detoxification developed by Bio Health Center.

"No matter how skillful one becomes, the great mysteries of Life will always hover just out of reach. One can never know all the answers. In the reality of everyday medical practice, no one can guarantee any clinical result... but I and my certified staff can and do promise to try to help each individual patient to the best of our abilities, by using all our knowledge, skill and compassion. Having been trained as a 'medical scientist,' I can bear witness to the simple fact that statistical science and individual reality do not share the same experience. The Quantitative 'eye' of the scientist perceives a different Reality than the Qualitative 'I' of the patient. And yet modern statistical science dismisses individual patient experience as 'anecdotal' and 'biased.' Such dangerous nonsense has caused much suffering and harm. Individual patient experience is the only true measure of the Quality of care. Relief of suffering, not statistical significance, is the patients real quest, their only quest... and the true physician's ultimate goal. I believe it was in Plato's Phaedrus that Socrate's ask's, 'do we really need anyone to tell us what is right?' Homeopathic Integrative medical practice provides the patient and practitioner with simple, non-toxic methods of treatment for relief of suffering... a natural union of clinical Art and Science... the true essence of medical service."
