Integrative medicine is healing-oriented and focuses on the person as a whole. At Naperville Internist, we strive to include the many aspects of your life and goals in order to find the best approach to improving your overall health. As an integral part of anti-aging medicine, integrative medicine may include the following:
- Wellness optimization
- Aesthetic procedures
- Sleep disorder treatment
- Stress management
- Nutritional planning and supplementation
- Lifestyle modification
- Fitness and exercise coaching
- Weight-loss support
- Regenerative medicine
- BHRT for men and women
- Body and mind regeneration
- Spiritual balance
- Meditation and prayer
Conventional medicine is reactive, but anti-aging medicine is proactive. We want to find and eliminate risks before they become a problem. Although medication is sometimes necessary to treat or manage conditions, we believe that in many cases, medication simply masks the underlying issues. At Naperville Internist, we don’t want just to manage your conditions, we want to help you achieve a level of health you may never even thought possible. Our emphasis is on improving health, optimizing performance, and increasing the quality of our patients’ lives.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
PRP has continued to grow as a reliable way to effectively treat sexual dysfunction, and even has aesthetic applications such as improving overall skin and hair health.
How does it work?
Our blood predominantly consists of plasma, which carries red and white blood cells and platelets. PRP is created by drawing some of the patient’s own blood and then using a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets within a sample of the plasma. This concentrated sample of platelets is then combined with the original blood sample. We can then inject this platelet-rich blood into the treatment area. While results may not occur immediately, many women experience improved sensitivity, functionality, and muscle tone while improving the performance of sexual function and bladder control.
