Welcome to Newport Longevity

lon . gev . i . ty 
1.  long life; duration of life (The American Heritage Dictionary)
2. “Longevity in science refers to the maximum potential length of life, or the outcome  of the aging process. In medicine, the real questions are: How long and how healthy?"

Medical Director, Newport Longevity Medical Group


What is your physiologic age?

Aging is often associated with various degenerative disease processes and a dramatic decline in function. Good health, at any age, is often thought of as an absence of pain and illness, rather than as a positive vitality.  The inevitable endpoint of the aging process for everyone is that the heart stops beating, however, the infirmities and disabilities attributed to getting old are not inevitable. The lifespan for the American people has more than doubled since the American Revolution and life expectancy continues to increase beyond anything that previous generations could ever have imagined, which means that the quality of life as we age is now the issue.


How old is your oldest part?

The primary cause of death for men and women in the United States is heart disease, but many other disease processes can be potentially disabling or fatal. The conventional approach to treating disease is to treat the symptoms rather than the underlying causes.  Unfortunately, 50% or more of organ function is lost before symptoms occur. Newer medical models, based on advances in medical technology and scientific knowledge focus on the detection and treatment of disease before symptoms occur, or while the pathology is still reversible. By treating the major organ systems as a network, instead of isolating individual systems, the progression of degenerative disease and chronic illness can be significantly altered or reversed.

How youthful is your energy?

Life should not be defined by age, but by energy.  The most common cause for doctor visits in the United States is fatigue, which can be a normal response to stress and poor lifestyle habits, but can also be a non-specific sign of a more serious physical disorder.  Fatigue is usually ignored or minimized until performance is affected and is often underestimated or unsubstantiated by members of the medical community.  Newly available diagnostic techniques, interpreted by physicians trained to assess the underlying causes and develop an appropriate and individualized treatment plan, are effectively slowing and even reversing complex, chronic illnesses such as fatigue, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and neurological and autoimmune disorders.
