Lifestyle Medicine According to Dr. Ivan…
I believe that one’s lifestyle invariably dictates their overall health. Those who are confident about their appearance, energy levels, sexual prowess, fitness ability, and mental fortitude will demonstrate improvements in life sustaining metabolic process throughout the body. With a strong adherence to the ideology of the connection between mind and body, helping one feel as if they were 25 years old again, will lead to both a lifestyle enhancement and life rejuvenating experience.
I developed this model of medicine, Lifestyle Medicine, early on in my educational experience in medical school.
I came to find that with traditional medicine the prolongation of death was more important than the augmentation of life.
A philosophy I didn’t agree with.
Lifestyle Medicine holds fast to the idea that aging is a choice we all make unknowingly every day. Every cigarette we smoke, every drink we drink, every extra serving of starchy and fatty food we indulge in, and every extended night out we decide to take weighs heavily on our body’s health and in turn ages us.
Numerous facilities and organizations offering “anti-aging” and/or aesthetic medical practices only targeted specific areas of one’s overall potential. How we function internally will dictate how we look aesthetically and feel biologically. Correcting nutritional, hormonal, and toxic imbalances in the body is imperative to not only achieve optimum results but also ones that are long lasting.
Lifestyle Medicine is a collaboration of my education in aesthetic and wellness medicine, my certifications in fitness/sports nutrition and my professional fitness modeling career as Mr. USA. I whole-heartedly believe that those who preach should first practice what they are preaching. Never take weight loss advice from a fat doctor.
It is my goal to help my patients discover that the days when sleep was deep, fat loss easy and sex a privilege, not a guessing game are not gone and can be regained.
JUST BECAUSE YOUR DRIVERS LICENSE OR PASSPORT SAYS YOU ARE 40 DOESN’T MEAN YOU ARE 40!
The most important aspect, the one I strive for my patients to experience, is the renewed zest for life that comes with a feeling of excitement about starting their day, not dread. Better energy, sex, sleep, physique, mental clarity, mood… all of these factors weigh heavily on one’s physicality and emotions.
Making an investment in yourself is the smartest and most beneficial one you will ever make.
