Healthspan optimizes human performance through interventions targeting cellular senescence. We empower our patients to regain control over the levers of aging that are at the foundation of most age-related chronic diseases.
The Biological Targets of Aging
As we age we accumulate more damaged and dysfunctional cells that are unable to carry out their original functions. Some of these cells—senescent cells—go a step further and recruit healthy cells to be dysfunctional as well.
Healthspan focuses on interventions that target these damaged senescent cells.
Autophagy is the body's way of cleaning out damaged cells, in order to regenerate newer, healthier cells.
In aging, all roads lead to senescent cells. As we accumulate senescent cells we have less energy and are more fragile.
Interventions that increase mitochondria efficiency in health cells, and cutting off preferred fuel sources for dysfunctional cells.
mTOR Driven Aging
Rapamycin is considered to be the most promising healthspan-promoting intervention for its role in slowing down the formation of senescent cells.
Using the Healthspan™ algorithm our medical team creates a custom treatment and dosing protocol of Rapamycin. Your doctor prescribes a treatment plan, explaining the benefits and what to expect. Your doctor will review & optimize your dosage every 30 days.
Start your online visit by completing our new patient intake and providing information about your medical history and lifestyle. The online evaluation takes about 15-20 minutes to complete.
A functional medicine physician will review the information you provide and determine the prescription that best suits your needs. Scripts are available for 1 month, 3 month, and 6 month supplies
If prescribed, your treatment will be shipped directly to you, and arrive within 5-7 business days. All orders are tracked electronically, and you will have access to tracking for each shipment.
Our messaging portal is available 24/7 to communicate with our functional medicine providers. For any questions you have about treatment, you are able to communicate directly with your physician.
The Pillars of Aging
Dr. Peter Attia
Dr. Attia received his medical degree from the Stanford University School of Medicine and trained for five years at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in general surgery, where he was the recipient of several prestigious awards, including resident of the year.
He spent two years at the National Institutes of Health as a surgical oncology fellow at the National Cancer Institute, where his research focused on immune-based therapies for melanoma.
Peter is also on the editorial board for the journal Aging.
