Anti-aging medicine, an extension of preventive health care, is the next great model of health care
for the new millennium.
If you have had your cholesterol tested, taken a lipid-lowering drug, had a mammogram, or taken HRT
with thyroid, testosterone, estrogen, melatonin, or DHEA, you have experienced anti-aging medicine.
This form of medicine is based on the very early detection, prevention, and reversal of age-related
disease. 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.
Anti-aging medicine is the newest clinical medical specialty, the "optimum" of wellness and longevity,
and employs extensive therapies and treatment in the preventative health care field far beyond just
cholesterol testing and mammograms. A profound paradigm shift in the way the medical establishment
views aging and age-related disease is now underway.
