Anti Aging

Dr. Jimenez Anti Aging Functional Medicine Team. The spine goes through a degeneration process as we age. The rate of degeneration depends on the stress level. The more stress, the faster your spine degenerates. That’s why it’s important to keep your spine checked and get adjusted.

Our body is in a constant and never-ending battle for survival. Cells are birthed, cells are destroyed. Scientists estimate that each cell must withstand over 10,000 individual assaults from reactive oxygen species (ROS) or free radicals.

Without Fail, the body has an incredible system of self-healing that withstands the attack and rebuilds what has been damaged or destroyed. This is the beauty of our design. Chiropractic care with its health movement is a powerful method of stabilizing and enhancing this self-healing ability.

Dr. Alex Jimenez discusses concepts surrounding the anti-aging pandora. Since before the days of Ponce de Leon’s search for longevity, man has always been enticed by the chance of eternal youth.
