Aging gracefully extends the concept of preventative health care to embrace the very early detection, prevention, and reversal of aging-related diseases, coupled with the aggressive yet gentle disease treatment.
Whereas, traditional medicine focuses on treating the effects of the aging process and treats external symptoms which have internal causes, Aging gracefully focuses on treating or preventing the causes of aging and works to change the process of aging itself. One of the first steps in the aging gracefully protocol is correcting unhealthy lifestyles that leads to many of the degenerative conditions associated with aging. Diet, exercise and stress reduction are important topics discussed in consultation with the doctor that leads to individualized treatment plans for each patient.
BABY BOOMERS AND AGING GRACEFULLY
Today a Baby Boomer, (someone born between 1946-1964) turns 50 years old every thirty seconds. This population group now has an average life span of 80 years old and with medical knowledge doubling every 3.5 years or less, the average life span is expected to be 120-150 years by 2050. The average Baby Boomer is not ready to stop living and feeling they have better things to do than getting old. They feel that age is irrelevant and it is their ability to pursue their goals what really matters. Rather than suffer many of the effects of getting older they are trying to slow down and prevent many age related conditions.
