HOW ANTIAGING WORKS

Antiaging: What is it?

Antiaging [or anti-aging] is a force against the natural aging process. Our potential today to live longer is extending continuously; however, due to the escalation of degenerative diseases and the additional environmental stresses we live in, our life expectancy has changed little over the past 50 years. Antiaging methodologies to tip this balance back in our favour include all the benefits or modern medicine and practice.

Antiaging medicine is exploding. The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine has grown from 12 physician members to 17,500 in 85 countries. They have 26 seminars in 2006 alone, where they will train 30,000 doctors worldwide. With 1,500 physicians certified in antiaging medicine, it is become one of the fastest-growing medical certification programs in history.

Our natural vulnerability to threats to our health doubles each 8 years. By using advances in antiaging medicine for disease prevention we can avoid certain conditions which would kill us early, however, this does not actually extend the maximum lifespan barrier. Other measures such as calorie restriction do. Antiaging is when the vulnerability doubles each 14 years instead of 8.

 

How Does AntiAging Work?

Antiaging is simply reversing the physical processes of aging. It is not a new concept. My first real exposure to its principles was in Leslie Kenton’s book, Ageless Aging, published in 1985. It remains a favourite on the subject today. It is based on what appears to be the natural, biological law of life, centering on an holistic mind-body approach. Once we understand how the body ages, we can adopt a number of actions to slow the process and enhance the quality of life. The goal of antiaging is maximising both the lifespan and the quality of life. Due to the growing high prevalence of degenerative diseases, the average life expectancy is not increasing.


Antiaging can be either preventative or restorative.

  • Preventative treatments and products can be targeted at general wellness and skin care, or in more advanced ways targeting deeper tissue and cell molecular management.
  • Restorative treatments can also be at the various levels, from simple skin Dermabrasion to surgical procedures such as joint replacements and body contouring. Some of these treatments are quite simple and affordable, but it is very much recognised that many restorative programs are beyond the time and financial resources or many.

A complete antiaging program can be approached in four main categories:

  1. Improve and maintain optimal wellness
  2. Slow and prevent cellular damage leading to DNA mutations
  3. Reduce and rid the body of damaging free radicals
  4. Ensure cells operate at optimal levels to reduce oxidation

Gerontology [old age] experts maintain that 70% of the aging process is controllable through lifestyle choices; only 30 percent is the result of genetic makeup.
