What family offices should know about today’s health and wellness therapy trends
In today's fast-paced world, busy professionals and high-net-worth individuals often struggle to find the time to prioritize their health and wellness. With long work hours, frequent travel and other commitments, it can be challenging to access emerging therapies to give them a competitive edge.
Here are some of the emerging health and wellness therapies that I have personally experienced as a 50-plus-year-old health executive and that high-net-worth (HNW) clients are using the most via concierge visits to obtain a competitive edge:
TESTOSTERONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY
- Testosterone levels naturally decline with age, leading to symptoms such as fatigue, reduced muscle mass, decreased libido and mood changes.
- Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) involves the administration of exogenous testosterone to restore levels to a more optimal range.
- HNW clients are using TRT to improve their energy levels, muscle mass, bone density, sexual function and overall quality of life.
- Peptide therapy involves the administration of specific peptides to target specific physiological pathways.
- Peptides are short chains of amino acids that play crucial roles in various physiological processes in the body.
- Peptide therapy has shown promise in areas such as anti-aging, muscle growth, weight loss and cognitive enhancement.
- HNW clients are using peptide therapy to improve their physical and mental performance, giving them a competitive edge in their personal and professional lives.
EXTRACELLULAR VESICLE THERAPY
- Extracellular vesicle therapy (EV) involves the use of small membrane-bound structures released by cells that contain bioactive molecules, such as proteins and nucleic acids. These can be transferred to recipient cells, influencing their function and behavior.
- EV-based therapies have shown promise in areas such as drug delivery, regenerative medicine and immunomodulation.
- HNW clients are using EV-based therapies to enhance their immune system, improve their physical performance, and promote tissue repair and regeneration.
Although these emerging therapies offer potential benefits, it is important to approach them with caution and consult with qualified health care professionals who specialize in these fields. While continued research and clinical trials are needed to fully understand the therapeutic applications, safety and long-term effects of these emerging therapies, HNW individuals in our network use them the most to obtain a competitive edge.
