Don’t allow HEART DISEASE or other diseases of aging to shorten your HEALTHSPAN.

 

The Life Span Program is THE comprehensive evaluation for the detection and prevention of Heart Disease and diseases of aging.

 

Heart disease, cancer, and dementia are diseases of aging, and they are occurring at younger ages in more people.

Heart disease and Aging are really the same thing, simply the accumulation of injury and the failure to repair it.

The heart and blood vessels are aging long before we show signs of age and disease on conventional tests.

The Life Span Program identifies the earliest signs of aging and allows us to make plans to prevent or reverse them.

Aging is slowed by reducing injury and stimulating the bodies capacity for repair.

The the Life Span Program enables you to live in better health at every age.

 

“Live well and die young at an old age.”

J Thomas Svinarich MD FACC FHRS

At Colorado Center for Functional Medicine we bring together experience and insight in Cardiology, Functional Medicine, coaching, and community building to heal the heart.

After years of practice as a cardiac electrophysiologist, I developed the practice of “Functional Cardiology” to expand treating heart disease into healing heart disease.

As a physician with board certification and long experience in cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology, I understand how heart disease, or even the risk of heart disease, can affect  your life and your family. Making you safe is the first priority.

Treating the symptoms and complications of heart disease is important, but I observed that heart disease ultimately progresses in spite of the best symptomatic treatment with procedures and medications. Experience dealing with my own heart problems with atrial fibrillation taught me that it is necessary to find and treat the root causes of heart disease.  A holistic, patient centered, Functional Medicine approach makes this possible.

This experience led to the understanding of the 3 keys to preventing and reversing heart disease and other diseases of aging.

First we identify the extent of problems that currently exist, and measure these biomarkers to document the benefits of treatment.

Next, the sources of injury are identified and treated by focusing on changes in nutrition, diet, and lifestyle.

Third, the body has remarkable capacity to heal and repair if we let it. Restoring the balance of injury and repair is possible by applying new knowlege regarding these processes.

Diseases of aging rob us of our mobility, sexuality, independence, comfort, social connections, self confidence, and income.

Diseases of aging are becoming more common at younger ages, with one half of Americans affected by age 50.

The Life Span Program is an investment in your health.

 

There is no investment in the future without an investment in your health.
