WHAT IS ANTI-AGING MEDICINE?
Anti-aging medicine is based on preventive medicine for the early detection, prevention, treatment, and reversal of age-related disorders, and diseases.
90% of all adult illness is due to the degenerative processes of aging. This includes heart disease, most cancers, adult-onset diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis,
autoimmune disease glaucoma, and Alzheimer’s.
With early detection and appropriate intervention, most of these diseases can be prevented, cured, or have their downward course reversed.
Age Management medicine, also referred to as Anti-Aging medicine, is based on the very early detection, prevention, and reversal of age-related diseases. It is the newest clinical medical specialty—the “optimum” of wellness and longevity—and employs extensive treatments in the preventative health care field.
Within the last 100 years, the average lifespan has doubled. The medical community has now developed ways to ensure the second half of our lives is just as rewarding, happy and healthy as the first.
Anti-aging medicine aims to both extend lifespan
as well as prolong healthspan - the length of time that we are able to live productively
Anti-aging therapies can include nutrition, physical fitness, skin care, hormone replacements, vitamins, supplements and herbs, focused on each individual's unique lifestyle, make-up and needs.
