Preventive Medicine & Anti-Aging Medicine
Preventive Medicine is just that – a medical specialty designed particularly to prevent illness and disease. Anti-Aging Medicine is a medical specialty found in the application of advanced scientific and medical technologies for the early detection, prevention, treatment and reversal of age related diseases. The goal of Preventive/Anti-Aging Medicine is not to merely prolong the total years of an individual’s life, but to ensure that those years are enjoyed in a productive and vital fashion. It addresses how to prevent, slow or reverse the effect of aging and help people live longer, healthier, and happier lives.
There are two types of aging – chronological and biological aging. Chronological aging is based upon time, which is the same for everyone. We age in days, months, and years. Biological aging is based on several factors, some controlled, some not and it varies from person to person. This is not simply a matter of health.
