Thompson Premier

Our "Concierge" program includes both previous tiers, in addition to a Carotid Intima-Media test, nutritional and exercise counseling, workout programs, and a two hour consultation with a physician age management specialist.  The "Concierge" program also gives access to a physician who will assist patients in any of their healthcare needs, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week.

About Age Management


Dr. Thompson's Healthy Living (aka. Age Management) Medicine involves a doctor-patient team utilizing medications, hormones, supplements, exercise and nutrition to promote a healthy body and mind to increase and improve our quantity and quality of life.

The first step in Dr. Thompson's Healthy Living Medicine is one of the most important....research. Dr. Thompson collects in depth information about a patient's health utilizing tests on genetics, blood, physical condition, and more. Dr. Thompson also gathers information about current lifestyle practices and daily stressors. The goal is to pinpoint what the patient is susceptible to or currently suffering from. With this information, Dr. Thompson sets up an intricate plan which to help the patient avoid illnesses or beat/reverse the condition damaging the patient's lifestyle and possibly shortening life span. In the pictures below, one of Dr. Thompson's patients lost 117 lbs., dropping his weight from 326lbs to 209 lbs. The final image has the patient and his wife in a pair of the patient's old pants. 


What makes Dr. Thompson’s Healthy Living Medicine different from other forms of medical care?

Our team proactively approaches our patients to avoid the common maladies of aging that affect quality of life and longevity. Our approach allows patients the peace of mind knowing we are doing our utmost to avoid the illnesses of aging. No longer do we have to accept the 10 minute office visit that results in copious amounts of medications and restrictions on lifestyle.

Thompson clinic prides itself on knowing our patients personally and being available to discuss problems or concerns. This highly personalized care is key to a path of living a longer healthier life.

Men's Health


The average male starts a slow health decline after the age of thirty. Associated with this decline are loss of lean muscle mass, increased fat and development of age related diseases. If we are to remain healthy it is mandatory that we identify problems and deficiencies that can be corrected. Through exercise, proper nutrition, supplements, medications and hormoneswe can reverse the symptoms that so often plague us as we age. After a thorough evaluation including blood tests, scans and history/physical exams, an individualized program will be developed and instituted. Follow-up tests and consultations will be scheduled 3-4 times per year and on a case by case basis as needed.

Let us help you navigate through these troubled waters and get you headed to the smooth seas of a healthy happy life. Call us today to schedule your evaluation.


Andropause Symptoms: How many do you have?

 
  • Osteoporosis

  • High Blood Pressure

  • Heart Disease

  • Diabetes

  • Apathy (Depression)

Women's Health


Our Women's program is specifically designed for each individual using evidence based medical treatments. The average female begins to notice hormonal symptoms in their forties and some as early as thirty. This all culminates with complete menopause and all of its associated symptoms.

Let us help you increase your energy, bone density, skin thickness and decrease your body fat, apathy and risk of age related diseases.

Epigenetics


DNA contains the instructions for building all parts of the body, but DNA is only half the story. The DNA in our body is spooled around proteins called histones, which package the cellular genome. Modification of the histones allows DNA to unwind and the instructions to be "read" and subsequently, the genes to be expressed. 

Both the DNA and histones are covered with chemical tags, a second layer of structure called the epigenome. It tightly wraps inactive genes, making them unreadable. It relaxes active genes making them easily accessible. The DNA code remains fixed for life, but the epigenome is flexible.

The epigenome adjusts specific genes in our genomic landscape in response to our rapidly changing environment. Thereby, expression of genes can be affected by various factors: lifestyle, nutrition, chemicals and stressors in the environment, as well as dynamics in internal processes and functions of the body.

 GE Lunar Prodigy DXA Scanner

GE Lunar Prodigy

 

Body composition by DXA the “gold standard”

Body composition scans with DXA provide precise and accurate data on tissue composition, including lean mass and fat mass. The measurements are fast and non invasive, routinely the scan is completed in 10 minutes or less. Scans provide both total body data and regional results.
 
Men and women tend to develop an increase in abdominal (android) fat.  Android fat is associated with an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.

Better than a scale

Accurate measurement of body composition provides valuable information for assessing and monitoring the progress of nutrition and exercise interventions. THE DXA is the only method that accurately determines how fat is distributed.
Monitoring weight is, at best, a crude and imprecise way to monitor progress. Other devices including scales, calipers, impedance devises and BMI are of little to no value.
 
Many people lose as much or more muscle than fat when trying to lose weight, especially if resistance training is not part of their routine. DXA can accurately determine the fat and muscle changes that occur with weight loss interventions allowing for modifications in nutrient ratios and exercise routines.

Bone Density
 
Ostenopenia (low bone density) and osteoporosis (very low bone density) increase the risk of fractures. Low bone density is not just a woman’s problem. Many men have low bone density as well. While hip fractures are not as common in men, the mortality after a hip fracture is roughly 20% compared to 7.5% in women.
 
Body Composition
 
Your body composition is accurately determined using state of the art Other methods such as measuring fat folds, bio-impedance scales or hand held

Carotid Intima Media Thickness (CIMT)
 
CIMT is an FDA-approved noninvasive, advanced ultrasound evaluation of the carotid arteries. This evaluation allows for detection of any existing plaque, and provides for a precise measurement of the thickness of the artery wall. Thickening of the artery wall is a sign of developing vascular disease and is directly related to your risk of heart attack, not just stroke and erectile dysfunction. CIMT  allows for proactive strategies to reduce your risk for these  problemss. Visit http://www.cardionexus.com for more information about CIMT

Exercise


Exercise is an essential aspect of every patient's program, we expect each and every patient to participate albeit at different levels. The majority of patients we recommend a structured resistance program a minimum of 3 times a week, Average session length is 45 to 60 minutes. The sessions can be done at home or at a local gym, but trainers not mandatory but for many beginners it may be essential. After your initial evaluation will educate you on appropriate exercise programs, help you locate trainers in your area as well as different training programs. 

This program increases muscle mass, bone density, VO2 max and reduces body fat. At the same time we know that exercise decreases your incidents of cardiovascular disease, stroke, dementia and can even help stabilize blood sugar. We look forward to working with you and helping you establish your program leading you down the path to a healthy happy long life.

Nutrition


We do not count calories here at the Thompson clinic instead we focus on the glycemic index of foods as well as the glycemic load. This allows us to abandon, measuring, weighing and lets us focus on the nutritional value of each individual from. If one were to label our diet would be an organic paleo-Mediterranean low glycemic nutrition plan. At the time of your initial evaluation lab values, percent body fat, lean muscle mass and resting metabolic ratewill be used to fine-tune your individual nutrition plan. We find that most nutrition plans fail due to lack of knowledge, poor decision-making and bad habits. By allowing you to make good choices and not restricting your intake we find that our patients feel satisfied and make great games that they have been struggling to attain for years.
