Is Anti Aging a Myth?
Is anti-aging for me?
Take yourself for a moment to age 50. You have the rest and the best of your life in front of you. How do you want to live these years? The basis of our current medical standard is the treatment of existing disease. If you have high blood pressure, you can take a pill. If you have a heart attack, you can get a bypass. If you have cancer, you can get chemotherapy. But once the bypass is complete and once the cancer is removed, you are still left with the underlying imbalances that allowed the plaque or the cancer to develop in the first place. Given the choice; would you not choose to restore optimal function and prevent recurrences in the future? If so, you are on a quest. You are on a quest for information and a health care provider who will partner with you to help restore balance and optimize your quality of life.
How does it relate to medical conditions?
This is no myth. The last two decades in medicine proves that applied correctly this new genre of medicine results in greater than a 90% resolution of symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia, decreased libido, weight gain, anxiety, depression, muscle and joint pains and decreased mental function. It also results in greater than an 80% improvement of disease states such as fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, gastric reflux, IBS, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, PMS, PCOS, infertility and in teenagers, ADD, anxiety and sleep disorders; and thus, the quest for “anti-aging” medicine.
Anti-aging medicine applies advanced technologies for very early detection, prevention and reversal of age-related disease. There is a growing body of data supporting the reality of anti-aging medicine, while derailing the notion that it is a myth.
