- Stress Management – Pressures from work, family, and health issues can be demanding on our minds and bodies. Our adrenal glands, which normally supply energy boosting hormones, often become weak from stress, leaving us fatigued and sluggish. Dr. Berger’s regulated doses of cortisol and DHEA have proven effective in counteracting these symptoms. Learn more
- Brain Balance & Mental Clarity – Unexplained mood changes, weight gain, fatigue, cognitive or memory impairment, insomnia, or sexual dysfunction are common symptoms of imbalanced brain chemistry. Learn more
- Fitness & Exercise – Improving your fitness level is one of the best things you can do for your health. Whether you prefer yoga or a boot camp approach to fitness, our team of trainers, bio-mental and exercise physiologists can design a time-efficient exercise program that will meet your personal needs and fit into your daily schedule. Using exercise and strength programs, we show you how to counter the changes in body composition, commonly observed with aging, to enable you to maintain your vitality and stamina. Learn more
- Diet & Nutrition – Good nutrition increases your ability to stay healthy and feel youthful. Helping you to develop good eating habits is a crucial part of our anti-aging program. First, we determine your body’s deficiencies and excesses through thorough tests which include metabolic screening, cholesterol measurement, digestive system analysis, nutritional profiling, lipid and omega-3 profiling, and measures of body fat and lean body mass. Based on our findings, we will tailor a program that is suitable to your specific needs and goals. Learn more
- Sleep – Healthy habits will help you to sleep at night. Before you fill that prescription, look at your habits and your environment. While sleep aids typically work short term, insomnia is often symptomatic of a larger lifestyle problem. Focusing on improved, healthy daytime habits can help you sleep at night.
