Anti-Aging Medicine Employees 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
In traditional medicine, physicians attempt to address the processes of illness and control its symptoms. A traditional doctor will prescribe medicine to help mask individual disease symptoms. Because prescription drugs have undesired side effects, they tend to cause further problems in the patient's body. These secondary symptoms are not the result of the underlying disease, but rather the effect of medication used to alleviate the original symptoms. The patient receives more drugs and the downward spiral of masking disease with prescription drugs continues. Physician's role is often reduced to managing drugs and not patient's health.
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. Instead of maintaining disease in its current state, anti-aging medicine emphasizes the need to improve health, optimize performance, and increase the quality of life for the patient.
