MAY 2017 – Delray Beach, Fla. – Just over three years ago, Ross Bloom and Keith Foulis, co-founders of the biostation, began offering functional medical services to patients in Delray Beach, Florida.  They were working out of a small room with Dr. Martin G. Bloom, a 30-year practicing cardiologist, who also has extensive training in anti-aging and functional medicine. Today, the biostation is poised to expand their impact through franchising and by establishing partnerships with member-based spas and clubs.

The biostation’s healthy-aging offerings are geared primarily for anyone not feeling optimal, and, as the co-founders say, can be especially beneficial to the aging baby boomer population. In 2030, the baby boomer generation is projected to be 72-million people representing nearly 20 percent of the total U.S. population*. “With this group experiencing more health challenges than previous aging segments, it is important that medical practices provide products and services that focus on the prevention of age-related diseases,” says Ross Bloom, biostation CEO and co-founder.

Bloom further explains how he and the biostation team approach health differently, “We recommend treatments that first attempt to address the root cause of the patient’s issues or concerns, such as vitamin deficiencies, hormone imbalances, carrying too much weight and lifestyle choices. We address these concerns with pharmaceutical-grade supplements, bioidentical hormone therapy and nutritional counseling to help support a person back to a path of optimal wellness.”

Why LED Red Light Therapy – 

One of the latest beauty trends on the market is red light therapy, and I hope it sticks around forever.

Last winter I was diagnosed with dermatitis, and was also told to restrict myself to very few products on my skin (natural and traditional). Everything that my skin came in contact with, it seemed, caused a reaction.

One thing I noticed was that the warm, summer months seemed to naturally heal my skin. But once the weather got colder, my dermatitis started to flare up again. I kept hearing from others with this condition that traditional tanning (in moderation) works wonders. The thought of exposure to harmful UV rays scared me until I stumbled across the benefits of red light therapy and decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did!
