The new year often sparks the urge to make healthier choices. Whether your goal is internal, external or both, feeling and looking healthy makes a world of difference on your overall well-being. The Anti-Fragility Health Clinic in Anaheim is here to help you achieve all your 2019 health goals from preventative health screenings to stress, acne, belly fat, joint pains and more. Started in March 2018 by Founders Charles Sine and Dr. Sung Hye Yi, Anti-Fragility Health has become a leader in preventative health. “The idea of the clinic came from our backgrounds in clinical research and our personal journeys in functional and lifestyle medicine,” said Sine, CEO of Anti-Fragility Health Clinic.
The clinic is dedicated to the early detection and prevention of diseases, but what makes them stand out from other clinics? “Five things differentiate us. Our internal and external focus on health, a comprehensive set of 500 clinical diagnostic biomarkers, a technology portal for engagement with patients throughout the journey, a comprehensive set of supplements and medical foods, and our process of supporting our clients transform their health,” said Sine.
One of the chronic diseases the clinic focuses on is cancer. For patients, the clinic takes a more natural, functional and integrative approach by creating a process that encourages the body to heal itself by strengthening and enhancing the body’s foundation (physiological resilience and metabolic reserve). Before treatment, a screening includes “a mandatory genomic sequencing to determine cancer mutations and mutation burden,” said Dr. Dien Nguyen, ND. During treatments, clients may receive prescriptions to support their treatment. Once in remission, patients will also receive prescriptions “to build the underlying physiological weaknesses including intelligent lifestyle design architecture to transform the physiological weaknesses that promote cancer growth,” said Dr. Nguyen, ND.
The result is a sort of blueprint for your lifestyle. The Intelligent Lifestyle Design Architecture involves attributes consisting of sleep, nutrition, supplements, exercise, stress, hydration and medication—backed by varying habits of independence, interdependence and continual improvement.
Although they provide aid during treatments, the clinic does not provide traditional cancer treatments or traditional healthcare. Some of the practices they do use include Stem Cell Therapy and Intravenous (IV) Therapy. “Stem Cells have the potential of becoming 220 different cell types. In theory, there’s no limit to the types of diseases that could be treated with Stem Cell Therapy,” said Sine. Some of the benefits include recovery time reduction, pain reduction and improving and overcoming autoimmune disorders. The other option, IV Therapy, infuses nutrients directly into the bloodstream for 100 percent absorption at the cellular level to help correct intracellular deficiencies. This process can help with hydration, strengthening your immune system, boosting energy, enhancing the body’s foundation and more.
But for those needing less intensive care, the clinic also offers a variety of services to help you look and feel your best. From acne, belly fat and stress management to CoolSculpting and Microneedling, Anti-Fragility takes a caring, holistic approach to your health. Their acne treatments include light therapy, where blue and red lights are placed close to your face for about 20-30 minutes. The blue destroys bacteria, while the red and orange lights reduce inflammation and stimulate collagen production. “The advantages of using red light therapy are that it is safe, quick, painless, drug-free, appropriate for all areas of the body and non-invasive,” said Dr. Nguyen, ND. Microneedling, where tiny needles create micro-punctures to the top layer of skin, stimulates collagen and elastin production to reduce fine lines, frown lines, wrinkles and even stretch marks. And CoolSculpting freezes fat cells that your body then eliminates.
All have long-lasting results and encourage self-confidence in patients to feel good in their skin. While it’s always important to take care of yourself, the start of a new year is a good opportunity to set the reset button and put your health first. At Anti-Fragility, no health issue is too big or too small. Whether they’re working with cancer patients or those in need of acne treatment, Sine, Dr. Nguyen, ND and the rest of the staff offer a safe, comfortable environment for you to get back on your feet and make this year your year! Here’s to your health, your vitality and your performance!
