We at the California Wellness Institute believe that Age Management Medicine is a proactive and preventative approach to health care for an aging population focused on preservation of optimum human function and quality of life making every effort to modulate the process of aging prior to the onset of degenerative aging.


The basic tenets of Age Management Medicine are patient evaluation through extensive medical history, lifestyle assessment, physical examination and laboratory evaluation to establish personalized proactive treatment plans consisting of proper diet, exercise, stress management, toxin reduction, and appropriate medical interventions. Our program at California Wellness Institute is by far the most comprehensive and extensive program to date.
