What is Performance Medicine?

Our Performance Medicine program is a comprehensive treatment regimen incorporating nutrition counseling, an exercise program, one-on-one check-ins, community support, aesthetic services, and advanced testing to help you improve your wellness and achieve your healthiest body composition. Although weight loss is not the focus of our Performance Medicine approach, it is often a benefit of the thoughtful, incremental changes the program helps you build into your lifestyle.

An Integrated Approach

Your Performance Medicine Treatment Plan

Month 1: Medical History and Physical Exam: At your initial consultation for Performance Medicine Ardmore aesthetic expert, Dr. Guirand, will spend time getting to know you, learning about your medical history, and discussing your personal health and wellness goals.

The following information will be collected to provide a baseline for treatment:

  • Medical history and physical exam
  • Blood pressure
  • 6-lead EKG
  • Body mass calculation and composition using Styku
  • A1C cholesterol (components of cardiometabolic health)
  • Establishment of individual goals
  • Metabolic VO2 max testing with PHONE

A week after your initial visit, you will meet with Dr. Guirand again to review your labs, history, and physical exam. The following weeks will focus on collecting more detailed information about your sleep habits, diet, stress, and activity levels to assemble a comprehensive picture of your current health.

Ongoing Health Data Collection: We will continue gathering information about your health and lifestyle during the first month, including the following:

  • Sleep data (sleep questionnaire and Oura Ring data)
  • Stress questionnaire, establish life stressors: job, home, etc.
  • Collect readings with Freestyle 3 continuous glucose monitor

Month 2

Nutrition Counseling: Month two begins with a formal nutrition consultation with a registered dietician to discuss meal planning and healthy eating habits. Our performance medicine model does not encourage restrictive diets. Instead, we encourage thoughtful changes toward enjoying a healthier variety of foods.

Weekly Check-Ins: Weekly check-ins provide support and motivation to make incremental behavioral changes, like incorporating exercise into your routine. Data from the Oura Ring Freestyle Libre 3 continues to provide insights into how these changes affect your health. 

Community Support: We will encourage you to create a supportive community with other clients, family members, or friends to help establish and maintain healthy habits.

Month 3

At this point in the program, many individuals are experiencing tangible benefits from their positive changes, such as better energy, reduced stress, improved sleep, and a more balanced body composition. Treatments focus on refining your physique and encouraging continued progress. This includes sessions with EmSculpt, a revolutionary body contouring technology that simultaneously burns fat and builds muscle.

EmSculpt Neo: EmSculpt Neo is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that combines two innovative technologies: high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy and radiofrequency (RF) heating. This treatment is designed to simultaneously burn fat and build muscle in targeted areas of the body, such as the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and arms. The HIFEM energy induces powerful muscle contractions, leading to muscle growth and toning, while the RF heating raises the temperature of fat cells, causing them to break down and be eliminated from the body. 

Exercise Program: Depending on your progress, we may provide a more advanced exercise program for you to follow. This component helps you incorporate daily habits that lead to lasting improvements in your wellness. 

Weekly Check-Ins: Continued weekly check-ins provide ongoing feedback and support tailored to your progress. 

Months 4-6

This phase of your performance medicine regimen is about establishing healthy habits you can maintain in the long term and enjoy the ongoing results of your efforts. 

Repeat Testing: We will re-test for various health data using Styku, PNOE, EKG, and a blood pressure check to chart your progress and guide future adjustments to your treatment plan. 

Biweekly Check-Ins: You will continue to have check-ins twice a month; adjustments continue as needed to fine-tune and optimize your treatment.
