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.
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.
Cellular Spring Cleaning
When we trigger autophagy through interventions like fasting and taking therapies like Metformin and Rapamycin, our cells undergo a process of recycling toxins and debris, just like hitting the reset button and help a damaged cell return to optimal smooth function. This has a profound effect on maintaining optimal health and staving off chronic diseases.

David Sinclair is a professor in the Department of Genetics and co-director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging at Harvard Medical School, where he and his colleagues study sirtuins—protein-modifying enzymes that respond to changing NAD+ levels and to caloric restriction—as well as chromatin, energy metabolism, mitochondria, learning and memory, neurodegeneration, cancer, and cellular reprogramming.

With every order Health Span will contribute $5 dollars to fund cancer research of the most promising metabolic oncology labs in the world.
