Live Young focuses on age management from the inside out. Founder Dr. Maureen Sweeney began her career as a family doctor and quickly realized how important lifestyle factors were to the process of healthy aging. She now runs her practice and lives her own life according to the acronym DESSERT.
Diet is all-important as we age. Reducing sugar, watching your alcohol intake, and consuming the right kind of fats can make the difference between good health and chronic disease, whether you’re 19 or 90.
Exercise is second only to diet in the Live Young Integrated Weight Loss and Maintenance program. It’s essential for managing weight, blood sugar, blood pressure, and cardiovascular health, and recent research shows it has anti-cancer properties too.
Sleep and stress management are another part of the Live Young program. A stressful lifestyle can cause unhealthy sleep patterns, and when you’re not sleeping properly your body isn’t healing itself from the wear and tear of daily life.
Supplements can fill the gaps that your diet or lifestyle factors have left behind. Minerals, herbs, vitamins, enzymes, and probiotics support your overall health as well as addressing specific needs.
Early detection of disease gives you the luxury of time when making health decisions. It can improve the prognosis and may even help you avoid treatment entirely with lifestyle changes and natural strategies.
Restoring hormone balance is one of the most effective ways to slow age-related change. Dr. Sweeney has 16 years of experience with bio-identical hormones – the naturally derived substitutes for the estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and other hormones that diminish in the body as we age.
Treating the outward signs of aging is the cherry on top. Dr. Sweeney has been working with injectable treatments like Botox ® and Juvederm™ since 2003 and laser skin treatments since 2006, and her team knows just how to help you look your best at any age or stage of life.
