Anti Aging Medicine- Slow, Prevent or Reverse the Diseases of Aging

Aging flowers

Roses in various stages of bloom

There is a new field of medicine, which has examined the research of what causes illness, what causes aging, what causes the decline in physical and mental function. This field is called anti-aging medicine. Physicians practicing anti-aging medicine have begun to offer their patients individualized plans to slow and even reverse aging. Modern medicine will keep many of us alive until we are 100-plus but no one wants to get older with more disabilities. A longer lifespan would be desirable if we are strong and healthy. Approximately 50% of the population, over 85 years of age, have Alzheimer’s disease, and large percentages of the older population have type II diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease. Living longer with these types of disorders does not sound too appealing. We do not want you to be one of the people whose quality of life decreases because you are getting older. We now know, through the practices of anti-aging medicine, we can alter these dire predictions.

What is the difference between traditional medicine and anti-aging medicine? Traditional medicine predominately treats external symptoms, which primarily have internal causes. In traditional medicine there is some mention of prevention, some advice about diet but little discussion as to the most hormonally correct type of diet for the human species. There is also some discussion about exercise but what kind of exercise and how much is rarely discussed. Traditional medicine does make an effort towards controlling some risk factors for cardiovascular disease such as cholesterol, although there are more important risk factors that need to be evaluated. Unfortunately, more times than not, traditional medicine reacts to losses and crises in health. If you have a heart attack, use clot busters or surgical procedures. If you develop Alzheimer’s or senile dementia, try this medicine or that, even though it probably will not do anything. Anti-aging medicine, on the other hand, works to change the process of aging itself.

Is anti-aging medicine alternative medicine or integrative medicine? No! Anti-aging medicine is “medicine” which combines traditional principles with current medical and technological advances. Is anti-aging medicine the same as geriatric medicine? In a way, it is the opposite. Geriatric medicine helps people cope with the losses of aging, anti-aging medicine seeks to prevent and reverse the losses associated with aging.

This new specialty of medicine, created in 1993 by a small group of forward-thinking physicians, formed The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M). The Academy now has more than 8,000 physician and scientific members, and is the fastest growing scientific society in the world today.

Is anti-aging just an expression of vanity; does it just mean looking younger? No. Anti-aging is the ultimate expression of preventive medicine. We want to maintain function on the highest level, prevent disease and maintain health. A side effect of anti-aging is that you will look younger with improved body composition (muscle to fat ratio) improved skin appearance and even possible reversal of hair loss and graying. The primary goal, however, is improved health and well being! The only way to slow or reverse aging is to slow, prevent or reverse the diseases of aging. The diseases of aging include cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and dementia. If you ask anyone how they want to spend their life, no one will want to spend the latter portion in sickness, nursing homes or intensive care units.

Take the time to investigate anti-aging approaches.

Change Your Life Right Now: California HealthSpan Will Start You on Your Journey

Big Wave News

Source: Snoron.Com

The world is changing and so is the way we view our health and well being as we age. We no longer have to accept the relentless mental and physical declines associated with aging. When we throw away old concepts and look at the something quite differently, it is called a paradigm shift. Looking at aging as a disease that can be treated, may be the biggest paradigm shift in human history. Anti-aging medical interventions, under the supervision of a trained anti-aging physician, can change your life right now. In the near future, with the advances in medical technology, including human gene research, your life and society will change in previously unimaginable ways. This blog will start you on your journey towards improved health and well being. It will teach you the science (anyone can learn it) and help you create a practical and personal anti-aging plan.

This paradigm shift is not based on dreams or science fiction; it is firmly documented in medical and scientific literature. We will provide access the latest updates in anti-aging medicine, available on our website and this blog. Since anti-aging medicine is changing so rapidly, a book alone without updates would be stuck with yesterday’s information and scientific references, that is why we are creating this blog. We want to interact with you and answer your questions because we want you to have a healthier lifestyle. When you read this blog, you can be a member of the California Healthspan Institute network. You are in with the “anti-aging in-crowd.”

This blog is a guide to your personal anti-aging program. We will give you recommendations as to diet, exercise, vitamins, nutraceuticals and hormone replacement therapy. We do not want you to rely on the teenage clerk in a vitamin store (although he or she may be knowledgeable) or your friend who sells vitamins through a multi-level marketing program. It is our goal to provide you with the same information we give our patients. State of the art information changes from day to day and we will keep you current.. Our medical practice provides cutting edge anti-aging medical care. Our goal is good health and a better quality of life by slowing and even reversing the degenerative effects of aging, for our patients and for all who read this book. It is not our primary business to sell vitamins or supplements and we have no vested interest in any particular company that does. Because we are able to remain objective, we can be your advocate. We want to empower you with the scientific knowledge that is the foundation of health and medicine. What you  read on this blog are not just directions for you to follow about how much of this or that vitamin; they are guidelines based on fact and proven clinically to be successful in slowing and preventing the disease of aging.

These ideas may seem “crazy” to you now but we encourage you to keep an open mind. Continue reading and the data will be presented.
