Anti-Aging medicine employs the latest scientific research, advances in biotechnology, and clinical preventive medicine to slow down conditions associated with aging. Through preventive screenings, early disease detection, prompt intervention, and optimal nutrition, anti-aging physicians help fight and slow down age-related disease and dysfunction.
Anti-Aging Medicine Slows Down the Aging Process
Your biological age is not the same as your chronological age. In unhealthy people, the biological age is often measured to be much higher than their real age. On the other hand, healthy people are often seen as much younger that they actually are. Anti-aging medicine focuses on slowing down the biological aging process by treating and preventing age-related disease on the molecular and cellular level.
Anti-Aging Medicine Treats the Underlying Condition
Anti-aging medicine deals with the actual physiological and biochemical causes for diseases and age-related disorders. Anti-aging doctors focus on treating the body at the microscopic, cellular, and biochemical levels. Anti-aging physicians find and treat the cause of disease, and not simply prescribe medication to mask disease symptoms.
In anti-aging medicine, prevention of future disease is just as important as treating an existing one. The best way to treat any medical condition is to prevent one in the first place. Active screening, early diagnosis, latest laboratory testing, modern medical imaging technologies, and prompt intervention are fundamental in helping patients avoid serious life-threatening diseases.
By optimizing health, improving nutrition, and making positive adjustments to your lifestyle, you can minimize the risks of major diseases:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Cerebrovascular disorders
Anti-aging medicine focuses on optimizing health, maintaining wellness, reducing known risk factors, prevention of diseases, pre-emptive testing, and slowing down age-related diseases.
Anti-aging medicine emphasizes an integrative and holistic approach to treating the body and the mind. Anti-aging physicians focus on health optimization and often combine a variety of methods to optimize their patients' health:
- Lifestyle modification
- Fitness and exercise coaching
- Weight loss management
- Vitamin supplementation
- Nutritional supplementation
- Hormone therapy
- BHRT for men
- BHRT for women
