What is Anti-Aging Therapy?
Anti-aging Medicine is a specialty that provides early detection, prevention, treatment, and reversal of age-related dysfunction, disorders and diseases. It is a practice that prolongs the healthy life span of humans and is based on principles of sound and responsible medical care that is consistent with those applied in other preventive health specialities.
Hundreds of scientific research studies clearly prove that modest interventions in diet, exercise, nutrition and single-gene modulation in the laboratory setting beneficially and significantly impact healthy function in old-age. Many of these interventions also modify maximum lifespan by 20 to 800%.
Hormones are said to be the fuel of youth. In research studies there have been effects of rapid improvement in physical function and also a marked recovery in psychological attitude and mental alertness. Athletes have been known to start the therapy to prevent injury and strenghten muscles, but it aids in the healing process if an injury is incurred. It seems that the key to anti-aging is linked to restoring hormonal levels to what they were in our youth.
