Age Management Medicine Q&A

What is age management medicine?

Age management medicine is a field of alternative medicine that focuses on gently and safely aging. Age management medicine offers you a proactive, preventive, and personalized path to optimized health that can delay or even eliminate degenerative aging.

At her practice, Jelena Petkovic, PAC, MMS, DHSc, uses a combination of advanced and holistic medicine to mitigate premature aging from hormone decline and increased inflammatory processes in the body. 

How do I get started with age management medicine?

Dr. Jelena begins treatment with a comprehensive consultation and functional medicine testing. During your consultation, you discuss your health and wellness goals and your questions and concerns about your current health.

During testing, she performs an executive physical. She runs functional laboratory testing to evaluate you for:

  • Food allergies
  • Inflammatory markers
  • Microbiome health
  • Detoxification issues
  • Micronutrient deficiencies
  • Genetic risk for certain diseases

Dr. Jelena’s evaluations don’t just consider your physical health. She also explores and corrects mind, energetic, emotional, spiritual, and lifestyle misalignments. 

Based on your talks and her evaluations, Dr. Jelena builds a custom age management plan for you.

What age management treatments are available to me?

Some of the treatments Dr. Jelena may offer you include:

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)

BHRT uses synthetic hormones to rebalance your body and tame uncomfortable symptoms from hormonal imbalances.

BHRT is different from traditional HRT because the hormones it uses are synthesized from yams and soy, which both have molecular structures identical to that of natural human hormones.

Before BHRT, doctors used hormones synthesized from substances with dissimilar molecular structures, like pregnant horse urine, which don’t work nearly as well. 

Peptide therapies

Peptide therapies use peptides, aka amino acid chains, to boost your body’s natural healing abilities. Specific peptides have different functions. For example, some act as hormones, while others function as neurotransmitters.

When Dr. Jelena injects you with specific peptides, you can experience age management benefits like better cognitive focus, skin tone and texture improvement, and enhanced immune function.

Vitamin therapies

Similarly, you can use vitamin therapies to infuse your bloodstream with vitamins, nutrients, and supplements. Vitamin therapy is typically administered through an intravenous (IV) drip to bypass the digestive system, which slows down absorption and decreases the overall effectiveness of the treatment.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy

Dr. Jelena can use platelet-rich plasma extracted from your blood to stimulate new collagen and healthy skin cell growth. PRP therapy has many applications, from hair rejuvenation to pain reduction.

For those interested, she combines prayer with treatments — Dr. Jelena believes that faith plays a huge part in healing and loves to implement it as a component of wellness plans.
