WHAT IS ANTI-AGING MEDICINE?

The term “anti-aging medicine” conjures up a lot of mixed emotions, myths, and commonly misunderstood practices. To really understand what anti-aging medicine is, some people find it helpful to understand the causes of premature aging.

Anti-aging medicine is the practice of preventative treatments and therapies to reduce the impact of aging processes and mitigate the risk of age-related diseases. Anti-aging medicine is:

It is scientific. Anti-aging diagnostic and treatment practices are supported by scientific evidence, which prevents them from being branded as anecdotal.

It is evidence-based. Anti-aging medicine is based on an orderly process for acquiring data in order to formulate a scientific and objective assessment upon which effective treatment is assigned.

It is well-documented. In fact, The National Library of Medicine hosts more than 3,000 peer-reviewed articles on the subject of anti-aging medicine

The DaSilva Institute Approach to Anti-Aging Medicine

At DaSilva Institute, we don’t just look at our anti-aging approach as a method for prolonging life, but also addressing the underlying aging process and promoting more successful aging through our safe, effective therapies.

By focusing on preventative therapies that minimize age-related diseases we are able to offer our patients advanced biotechnology treatments that help them stay healthy and functional to lead their most productive lives possible.

Our proven natural treatments include targeted nutritional supplements, natural (bioidentical) hormone replacement therapy, and specific dietary and exercises recommendations.

After following the proven treatment and care plans developed by the late Dr. Guy Silva and his colleagues at the DaSilva Institute, our patients see the difference between conventional medicine practices and our anti-aging medicine which restores their bodies to optimum balance and performance for combatting disease, correcting dysfunctions, and preventing the potential onset of age-related disorders.

Anti-Aging Research

The results are in and anti-aging medicine is not only saving lives – it’s prolonging them.

Hundreds of scientific research studies clearly prove that modest interventions in diet, exercise, nutrition and single-gene modulation in the laboratory setting beneficially and significantly impact healthy function in old-age.

Here’s the facts:

  • Many of these interventions modify maximum lifespan by 20-800%
  • Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health found that the anti-aging lifestyle can add up to 25 more years of productive lifespan
  • Researchers have found that the longest-living Americans are Asian-American women residing in Bergen County, New Jersey.1 They live longer than any other ethnic group in the United States — to an average lifespan of 91.1 years
  • In contrast, the Harvard team found that the shortest-living Americans are Native American populations in South Dakota. Despite receiving regular medical care, they are living an average lifespan of only 66.5 years
  • A distinguishing characteristic of the New Jersey women’s longevity is they avail themselves of state-of-the-art biomedical technologies in advanced preventive care, including preventive screenings, early disease detection, aggressive intervention, and optimal nutrition – all of which are cornerstones of the anti-aging medical model1

A first-ever study reveals the secrets of exceptional health in old age. Mark Kaplan, from Portland State University (Oregon), and colleagues utilized the Health Utilities Index Mark 3 (HUI3), a multidimensional measure of health status, to examine the maintenance of exceptionally good health among 2,432 elder Canadians enrolled in the Canadian National Population Health Survey.

They tracked participants’ health for a ten-year period from 1994 to 2004. The researchers found that the most important predictors of excellent health over those ten years were:

  • Suffering no chronic illnesses
  • Earning incomes over US $30,000
  • Having a history of never smoking
  • Drinking alcohol in moderation
  • Maintaining a positive outlook
  • Managing stress levels

The team summarized their research: “Many of these factors can be modified when you are young or middle-aged. While these findings may seem like common sense, now we have evidence of which factors contribute to exceptional health [as we age].”2

Around the world, people are seeking medical guidance for ways to stay healthy, active, and vital well into their older years. As a result, the principles of the anti-aging lifestyle are gaining rapid and widespread acceptance as a framework for lifelong habits for healthy living.

Anti-Aging Medical Model

Anti-aging medicine is the pinnacle of biotechnology joined with advanced clinical preventive medicine. This specialty is founded on the application of advanced scientific and medical technologies for the early detection, prevention, treatment, and reversal of age-related dysfunction, disorders, and diseases.

It is a healthcare model promoting innovative science and research to prolong the healthy lifespan in humans.

As such, anti-aging medicine is based on principles of sound and responsible medical care that are consistent with those applied in other preventive health specialties.

The anti-aging medical model aims to both extend lifespan as well as prolong “health span” — the length of time that we are able to live productively and independently.

Conventional medicine is unreasonably cynical about anti-aging therapies. Most traditional doctors will tell you anti-aging medicine is “quackery,” believing drugs and surgery are the best ways to battle age-related disease.

While these tools of conventional medicine can save lives in an emergency, they cannot prevent disease or promote health, well-being, and longevity.
