Anti-Aging and Functional Medicine Services
Henry Childers, M.D. is a local Delaware functional medicine specialist who will work in partnership with you to discover the root cause of your health imbalance. By working with the root cause of what is causing you to feel unwell, you are able to eliminate multiple uncomfortable symptoms by treating one condition. This approach to healthcare reduces the chances of you being treated for multiple symptoms that all have the same underlying cause. Functional medicine doctors are able to work this way because they understand that health is complex and interrelated to each person’s biology, genetic predispositions, lifestyle and environment. By taking each aspect of your health into consideration, you are given a treatment plan customized to you that heals you at the deepest level.
As part of a functional medicine treatment plan, your doctor offers a wide-range of services to ensure that your unique needs are met. Each different service addresses separate aspects of your health so that you are able to heal on all levels. Your functional medicine doctor works diligently to address the root cause of your disease. Don’t get stuck treating each separate symptom when you can treat one condition that heals them all! Talk to your doctor today about how to begin your functional medicine treatment plan.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) may be a part of a functional medicine treatment plan. As your body ages, the stresses of daily life catch up with you and your body stops being able to produce hormones as well as it used to. When your endocrine system does not function as it should, we do not get the correct hormones in the correct doses when we need them. This causes a whole host of problems that affect your physical, emotional and mental states. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, unlike synthetic hormone therapy, uses hormones that exactly match the chemical composition of the hormones produced by your body. Your local functional medicine and BHRT practitioner specializes in using these natural hormones to balance your body without any unwanted side effects. By bringing your body back into hormonal balance you will feel better, look healthier, and be revitalized.
Your local functional medicine doctor offers the HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) Medical Weight Loss Diet as part of the full range of holistic services offered. HCG is a hormone produced naturally by the body. When prescribed by a qualified physician, the HCG hormone can assist in healthy, fast-acting weight loss that stays off. Because this diet is overseen by a medical weight loss professional, you get the added benefit of a diet that is customized to the needs of your body and lifestyle. Whereas many fad diets get you stuck in a pattern of losing weight and then quickly gaining it back—the HCG diet helps you lose weight and keep it off. Your local medical weight loss practitioner makes sure you get the nutrition and exercise you need to keep you at your ideal weight and feeling and looking your best.

Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy rejuvenates and regenerates the skin and tissues of your body for a more youthful appearance and a healthier, pain-free you. PRP therapy works by taking your blood, isolating and then concentrating the healing properties of your blood, and then injecting it back into the parts of your body that need healing. Your local PRP practitioner uses Platelet Rich Plasma injections to heal sports injuries, sexual dysfunction, hair loss, and to eliminate wrinkles and other signs of aging. The stem cells and concentration of platelets that are injected back into your body encourage new, heathy cells to grow and multiply. This expedites and encourages healing and new tissue growth at the site of the injection. This type of soft tissue rejuvenation is especially successful when used to counteract the signs of aging. Contact your local PRP practitioner to learn more about how to incorporate Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy into your functional medicine treatment plan.
