Anti-aging? What does that even mean?
Anti-aging equals the maintenance of: cellular health, stem cell health, telomere length, mitochondrial health, control or the neutralization of free radicals (exogenous and endogenous), and nutrient/calorie balance. The GARM Clinic has pioneered a multi-factorial treatment program that addresses the complex components of the aging process and its associated frailty. This program includes anti-aging foods and nutrition guidelines, anti-aging supplements, lifestyle coaching, and stem cell treatments that, together, show promise in reversing or slowing the physiologic aging process. Although chronologic age cannot be altered, physiologic age can be improved to allow for a more youthful aging experience absent from chronic disease states.
Physiologic/metabolic aging is the result of dysfunction of the above, resulting in poor metabolic health affecting all cells, tissues, and organs. These changes at a cellular/metabolic level can lead to pathological conditions or chronic disease states. Examples of common chronic diseases are arthritis, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disorders, cancer, diabetes, and chronic neurologic disease marked by cognitive decline.
Frailty? What is that?
“Frailty” is a common geriatric syndrome that embodies an elevated risk of catastrophic declines in health and function in older adults. Frailty is a condition that is often associated with the aging process. But does it have to be? Not necessarily. Patients can take several steps to improve their frailty index scores, or potentially avoid the frailty index altogether.

The treatment process begins with a thorough evaluation where recommended lifestyle changes are presented. The GARM Clinic’s two-day autologous stem cell treatment then may help reduce the effects of aging processes known to be associated with chronic diseases and frailty. This approach may effectively correct known key factors resulting in cellular and metabolic dysfunction leading to premature cellular aging.
One example of a focused treatment is to reduce systemic inflammation, which can play an active or precursory role in most leading chronic disease states such as arthritis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, autoimmune, and neurodegenerative diseases. In these conditions, mesenchymal stem cells received via IV infusion have the potential to reduce the systemic inflammation thus reducing inflammation’s ability to participate in the progression and continuance of the chronic disease state.
Goals and Benefits of Treatment:
• Reduce systemic, joint, or local inflammation
• Provide cytokines and growth factors that signal and participate in healing and regeneration of areas of injury, scar and the effects of chronic inflammation
• Create a more positive, local cellular response at the site of injury or inflammation by switching the inflammation cycle into an anti-inflammation, pro-healing cycle
• Provide a positive neurogenic effect to improve cognitive function
• Improve one’s energy, thus restoring a sense of vitality
The GARM Clinic has embraced this approach to slowing abnormal aging (as a consequence of patient testimonials) via same day IV stem cell infusions in which some patients have reported the following anecdotal benefits: an increase in energy, a boost to the immune system, improved skin (tone, elasticity, and decrease in age spots), a decrease in systemic and localized inflammation, improved cognition, improved vision, and healthier hair (more lustrous).
Finally, two additional Anti-Aging and Frailty treatments include the option of a stem cell face lift or an erectile dysfunction (ED) treatment. The stem cell facelift is a minimally invasive procedure that stimulates the skin’s natural ability to repair itself. Stem cells encourage the production of elastin and collagen that helps fill in lines and wrinkles for healthier, younger-looking skin. New collagen and elastin production can reverse years of sun damage, improve acne scars and enhance the overall appearance of aging skin. The ED treatment is a breakthrough treatment to improve erection and encourage the protection and health of erectile tissue.
