Rhode Island Bioidentical Hormones Specialist
Stephen Petteruti D.O of The Petteruti Center is both a family practitioner and an anti-aging specialist brings a wealth of experience treating illnesses using traditional medicine, but integrates those skills into the anti-aging arena, working proactively to prevent illness and maintain optimal wellness in Coventry and Warwick, Rhode Island.
Being certified by the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine separates Dr. Petteruti from Age Management specialists who are also professionals dedicated to the same principles, but don’t have highly advanced training and board certification.
At The Petteruti Center in Kent County, RI, Dr. Petteruti believes that age is just a number and that it is never too late to pursue greater health.
Whether people want to feel young again, or they are suffering from a chronic illness, like cancer or fibromyalgia, he can help patients improve their quality of life to achieve their fullest potential.
Evidence suggests that hormonal, nutritional, and lifestyle optimization can prevent illnesses like cancer, dementia, libido and sexual dysfunction, heart disease, stroke, autoimmune disease, weakness, fatigue and many other conditions that can shorten the lifespan and compromise the quality of life.
Bio-identical Hormones and Aging
Starting at around age 30 and progressing as aging occurs, hormone levels begin a gradual decline. Changes in the body due to perimenopause and menopause in women and andropause in men cause uncomfortable symptoms and conditions. Genetics, exposure to toxins, lifestyle choices, diet, and physical activity levels over the course of a lifetime can also manifest in hormonal imbalances as aging ensues.
As people begin to look and feel older, they maybe do not have the energy or the stamina to enjoy the same activities they once did. However, this does not have to be a fact of life. The truth is that common symptoms of aging like weight gain, hair loss, fatigue, and low libido can be treated with Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy!
At The Petteruti Center for Anti-Aging, natural bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is used to safely and effectively restore hormones to healthier levels in Kent County, Coventry, RI and Wawick, Rhode Island. The result is a reduced risk of cancer, preserved brain function, better quality sleep, restored sexual function, healthy muscle development and protection against osteoporosis. The most important change is in the quality of life in general. Men and women can look and feel better than ever!
