Nobody wants to get old. And why would they? The aging process eventually affects every one of our body systems - from mental function and sexual performance to physical appearance, ability and strength. But chronological age has little to do with a person's biological age. Some people are old at fifty, while others are still sharp and spry at ninety. Today's scientists know quite a bit about what causes a person to grow old. The things we've always considered "normal aging" are actually caused by physiological problems that, in many cases, respond to medical treatment and healthy lifestyle habits. As a result, the human life span can be significantly increased while maintaining or even improving the quality of life! This contemporary approach to aging - known as anti-aging medicine - is a clinical specialty practised by more than 30,000 physicians worldwide. It applies advanced scientific and medical technologies for the early detection, prevention, treatment and reversal of age-related dysfunction, disorders and diseases. In the near future, we can all look forward to a future of boundless health and vitality by implementing anti-aging approaches to help us feel, look and perform better today.
