The Life Span Program is a unique series of tests designed to preempt diseases of aging.
Identify the earliest signs and risks of diseases of aging.
Identify sources of injury that may cause disease in the future or be aggravating disease now.
Identify signs of repair or failure of repair.
Identify problems with gut health that casue diseases of aging.
Identify problems with the microbiome that casue diseases of aging.
Identify autoimmune problems that cause diseases of aging.
Identify sources of inflammation that cause diseases of aging .
Find toxins and find stealth infections.
Identify gene variants and expression of genes that predispoe to diseases of aging and which can be modified.
At the end of the day the parents receive an e-mail in which they can check the daily routine again.

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.
