Comprehensive Health Assessment

Alternity’s Signature Health Screening & Wellness Program

Stop worrying about “getting older” or “aging” in general. Instead, focus on wellness and longevity by avoiding the illnesses your body is uniquely at risk for!

Redefining “Comprehensive” Health Screening

CT health assessment wellness screening testsWe have invested in state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment that goes way beyond what you’d experience with the average “annual physical.” We analyze your medical history and lifestyle impacts carefully. We actually uncover your own personal risk profile for the diseases we worry most about as we age: diabetes, heart disease and stroke. These problems don’t have to be a part of healthy aging, and can be fought off with the right treatments.

Maximizing the Time you Invest

We want you to get the most out of your appointments with Alternity. As soon as your first appointment is scheduled you’ll receive our professionally designed Healthy Aging and Lifestyles Assessment questionnaire. We’ll review your answers together at your office visit. We also arrange for blood work to be drawn before your visit, so we have the right information to start making informed decisions about your health and wellness.

Designing a Targeted Wellness Plan for Your Longevity

You’ll have one-on-one consultations with our anti-aging medical team and screening tests including a clinical exam, lab tests, and functional and diagnostic testing. The findings guide your personalized program of low-glycemic nutrition with high quality supplements, regular exercise, hormone optimization and stress management.

Dr. Ebanks will review your Healthy Aging and Lifestyles Assessment questionnaire and blood test results with you, and then conduct a thorough physical exam. Special diagnostic tests round out your medical assessment. Using a Cardiopulmonary Exercise Stress Test, we measure your VO2 max, cardiovascular risk and aerobic capacity. Our exercise physiologist or physical therapist then evaluates your strength, balance, flexibility and posture.

Next we use a special scanner to determine your percentage of body fat and bone mineral density. We use an exceptional device that screens your central blood pressure, arterial stiffness and vascular age – a very sensitive predictor of cardiovascular disease. Mental health and cognitive screening tests round out our consultation.

Starting A Healthier Eating Plan

Our registered dietitian consults with you to plan your personalized low-glycemic eating program. You’ll have a special lunch featuring the Mediterranean-style diet we recommend: high in fruits, vegetables, lean meats and essential fats and low in refined and processed foods, fats and simple carbohydrates.

Following Smarter Exercise Routines

Alternity advocates higher intensity, interval-type exercise and resistance training. We work with you to design an exercise program built to deliver results!

Supporting Your Long-Term Health Goals

You’ll get a comprehensive program for your short and long term health goals. Periodic consultations and annual exams will track your progress, and we’ll make adjustments to your individualized medical program as needed.
