Feel like the younger version of yourself
ViveWell offers advanced age management and longevity optimization treatment plans to slow down and reverse aging. Our holistic approach involves a complex evaluation of your hormones, metabolism, and genetics to create an individualized, precision medicine treatment plan to combat the effects of “inflam-aging.” We collaborate with you to choose interventions that treat aging changes at a cellular level. ViveWell’s rejuvenation services are here to help you maintain the best version of yourself as you age.
What is inflam-aging?
Early aging is the result of oxidative stress that prompts various levels and types of inflammation in your body. This affects how your cells and DNA age. Some people age more quickly because of problems with:
- Chronic inflammation
- Accumulation of toxins in the body
. . .and more.
Here at ViveWell, we know the toll oxidative stress takes on a person’s body. We provide care to optimize longevity by boosting rejuvenation and a renewed sense of well-being.
Our team balances hormones, uses a variety of anti-aging agents, and helps you address daily lifestyle approaches to limit and even reverse aging’s effects. Most likely, you’re aware of some and less so about others. This overview gives you insights into how combining regenerative and integrative medicine helps people to achieve the rejuvenation they seek.
As you think in terms of your age and potential lifespan, consider the value of extending your healthspan. This is a shift from thinking solely about the added years of your life to achieving a quality level of health as you age. It’s based on the knowledge that our genes determine only 20 percent of our predicted lifespan, whereas choices and behaviors are responsible for the other 80 percent.
Vivewell offers you a multi-faceted experience for optimizing your longevity by extending your healthspan. We address both the causes and cellular level changes of inflammation.
New scientific treatment approaches to anti-aging and longevity
There are known and emerging agents that elicit positive effects, resulting in delayed aging. Although some are prescribed medications, many of these agents are supplements, such as vitamin D3, while others are hormone replacement or boosting agents. The beauty of these is that they work in conjunction with lifestyle adjustments to bring you the best in rejuvenation protocols.
Natural, bioactive treatments
Medical scientists are learning about, researching, and applying treatments that defy our prior views of aging. At ViveWell, it’s a priority to remain on leading-edge of these treatments so we can provide the most effective and health-promoting options for our patients.
Importantly, aging well means living more healthful years. ViveWell’s longevity and rejuvenation treatments are all based on optimizing natural processes in the body. We achieve this by leveraging the chemical information your body understands best — the same kinds of hormones, amino acids, fats, and chemicals that your body itself produces.
Rather than hijack a natural process with harsh drugs, we used biological elements to turn the volume up on processes already at work to help your body heal, recover and feel better.
Bioidentical Hormone Optimization
As we age, our hormone levels often fall below optimum levels for youthful vitality. Hormone dysregulation can also be influenced by lifestyle choices and toxic exposure to pollutants and unhealthy stress. By supplementing key sex hormones at therapeutic levels, we can help you restore vibrancy and function to many bodily processes, including:
- Cognitive performance
- Immune resiliency
- Injury recovery
- Muscle and bone health
- Metabolism, insulin sensitivity
- Midsection weight gain
- Sexual wellness

Enhanced Ozone Infusion
Ozone is a natural molecule that your body uses to fight infection and stimulate healing. By introducing extra ozone to your body, we can help recover from illness and the degeneration caused by years of normal wear and tear on the body. What’s more, we are able to get even better results, by introducing UV light to the process. UV light and ozone work synergistically, helping you feel better, quicker.

Enhanced Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)
PRP treatments take concentrated platelets and growth factors from your own blood, and reintroduce them intto tissues that need a little extra TLC. PRP injections can effectively help address:
- Hair loss
- Joint and ligament injury
- Loss of sexual sensitivity
- Sagging skin and wrinkles
- Sexual dysfunction

Inhaled Hydrogen Therapy
Inhaled hydrogen therapy, also known as hydrogen inhalation therapy, is a treatment that involves inhaling hydrogen gas to improve health and potentially increase longevity. Here are some of the benefits of inhaled hydrogen therapy.
- Reduce inflammation and oxidative stress (thought to be underlying factors in many chronic diseases)
- Improve symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and stroke
- Anti-aging effects
- Enhances exercise performance
- Benefits for chronic kidney and liver disease
Inhaled hydrogen therapy shows promise as a safe and effective treatment for a range of health conditions.

NAD+ is a coenzyme that is present in all living cells and plays a crucial role in metabolism, DNA repair, and energy production. In recent years, NAD+ infusions have gained popularity for their potential health benefits and anti-aging effects. The benefits of NAD+ infusion therapy are impressive.
- Boosts cellular energy
- Improves cognitive function
- Promotes healthy aging
- Supports detoxification
- Enhances mood and well-being

Peptides Therapy, also called peptide injections or peptides injection therapy. Peptides are large class of small amino acids produced in the body. These molecules are the basic building blocks for proteins. They support the growth, development, function and replication of all living things on Earth. Applied properly, peptides have been approved for injection therapies to heal and rejuvenate bodily tissues.
Different peptides trigger various results in the body. They can help:
- Boost human growth hormone for more muscle mass and reduced aging symptoms
- Break down excess visceral fat
- Lose weight
- Repair DNA more effectively
- Get more benefits from exercise
- Optimize mental focus and acuity
- Feel sexier, healthier and calmer
Check out our page on Peptides Therapy to learn more.
Phosphatidylcholine (PC) Therapy
PCs are a group of many kinds of vital phospholipids that are abundant in the membranes of young, healthy cells. They play a key role in maintaining the integrity of the cell, facilitating absorbtion of nutrients to the cell and clearing our toxins and metabolic waste. Lack of PC is linked serious illness, including neurodegenerative diseases like Alzhiemer’s and metabolic conditions like Diabetes and Heart Disease. Treatment with PC can help restore:
- Deep, restful sleep
- Healthy weight
- Mental acuity
- Metabolic function

Prolozone Therapy is a non-surgical, regenerative injection treatment that is gaining popularity among health practitioners and patients. This therapy involves injecting a mixture of ozone, vitamins, and minerals into the affected area to stimulate the body’s natural healing process.
ViveWell Prolozone Therapy can:
- Break down fat cells in stubborn areas to provide non-surgical body sculpting
- Improve joint range of motion and flexibility
- Provide relief from chronic pain and discomfort
- Reduce the need for surgical intervention
- Rejuvenate wrinkled skin, scars and stretch marks
- Repair damaged tissue and promote tissue regeneration
Check out our page on Prolozone Therapy to learn more.
Excitingly, many of our anti-aging and longevity therapies work exponentially better together. Patients can “stack” some regenerative treatments during their visits. For example, we can pretreat the treatment area with prolozone and nutrients then add more healing components from PRP Therapy, peptides and/or exosomes.
It’s easy to look back on the choices you’ve made over the years. Those that have served you well as you’ve aged and others that have not. The good news is that positive shifts in lifestyle at any point result in enhanced cellular responses as soon as you adopt them.
Consider exercise. Yes, that’s physical activity in its many forms. It’s also about exercising your brain. That, too, comes in many forms.
One approach is combining music with dance! This combo stimulates multiple brain centers as it boosts circulation and respiration. At the same time, muscles are warmed and strengthened, along with the stretching of ligaments and tendons. Just think of the beauty of a slow dance as you realize your balance and physical resilience are enhanced with each session — anti-aging at its best.
You are what you eat, right? Aside from staying active, the way we choose to fuel our bodies is perhaps the greatest lever within our reach for managing our health and well-being. Being intentional about nutritious food choices and caloric intake affects aging in dramatic ways. A nutrient-dense, high-fiber diet is a powerful way to manage oxidative stress and the resulting inflammation. As much as possible, look for whole foods from clean, organic soil and water sources.
Rest, relaxation and stress management
Sometimes getting adequate sleep or finding moments to unwind and relax sounds like a dream. These are within reach using Vivewell’s anti-aging protocols. Consider the following:
- Levels of stress hormones return to baseline during a full night of sleep. Sufficient sleep has many benefits — including stress reset, the loss of body fat rather than muscle mass when on a calorie-restricted diet and optimized energy that’s balanced during waking hours.
- Exhaustion and stressors affect your sex life! This can be rejuvenated by practicing simple stress management strategies, beginning with the use of your breath. (Re)learning to breathe can have a significant impact on your overall well-being, leading to improved relationships and life quality.
- Worries about the effects of aging on cognitive function are serious for many people, even those in their 40s. The Vivewell combination of anti-aging agents and lifestyle adaptations offers you hope. That’s reassuring! Take advantage of the benefits of optimism, an outlook that offers its own longevity benefits.
- A grateful mindset can help stave off the negative effects of stress. Looking to build a practice of thankfulness? Learn how and why to begin a gratitude practice.
Reducing stress is within reach. ViveWell practitioners will guide you with methods to manage and reduce stressors and your responses to them.
