2007 - Impact of Genetic Engineering, Stem Cells and Aesthetics on the Field of Anti-Ageing Medicine
PAST AACL CONFERENCES
2006 - Maximum Human
Performance with Anti-Aging Therapeutics
The aim of anti-aging medicine is not only to slow down the aging
process, but also to keep the body functioning at its optimum peak
level. This lecture will discuss more practical approaches of anti-aging
medicine, and top anti-aging therapeutics.
Furthermore, we can expect an experimental expansion of medical knowledge
on aging thanks in large part to the fast pace of advancements in biomedical
technologies. Medical knowledge every 3.5 years or less. As a result,
gains in human longevity are directly proportional to the cumulative
sum of advancements in the biotech fields of, stem cells, cloning,
nanotechnology, artificial organs, and nerve-impulse continuity.
As we age, there is a gradual and consistent loss of lean muscle and
bone mass, along with loss of musculoskeletal coordination, balance
and kinesthetic capacity. This lecture positions sports medicine as
the first endpoint in the process of healthy human augmentation, whereby
healthy men and women enhance mental and /or physical performance.
In addition to deterioration of these systems, the CORE (torso/thorax)
loses its ability for flexibility and torsion control. There are a
series of specific training programs, techniques and exercise regimens
that can enhance muscle and bones mass, increase balance and coordination
and provide an enhanced feeling of confidence and well being during
activities of ambulation.
Numerous techniques, devices and testing mechanisms are employed by
the professional athletes of the US National Football League (NFL),
the US National Basketball Association (NBA), and Olympic competitors.
The frequency, duration and intensity of these training programs are
adjusted to age matched controls for safe and effective progression.
recently, most researchers believed that the human brain followed a
fairly predictable developmental arc: starting out protean, the
brain was thought to gain shape and intellectual muscle as it matured,
reach its peak of power and nimbleness by age 40, and then decline,
little by little, until by age 60 or 70, the brain loses much of its
ability in the arenas of cognition, memory, mood, and creativity.
scenario is rapidly becoming outdated, as neurologists and psychologists
are now coming to the conclusion that the brain at midlife? a period
lasting from age 35 to 65 ? is a much more elastic, much more supple
organ than previously realized.
from slowly powering down, the brain as it ages begins brining new
cognitive systems on-line and cross-indexing existing ones in ways
it never did before. In short, the mind grows more agile as it
ages. In midlife, one begins to maximize the ability to use the
entirety of information contained in the brain's neurons in entirely
aim, then, as we age, is to maintain our cognition, memory, mood and
creativity, and to minimize dementia and mental disability along with
our other body functions. We aim for brain fitness.
Some therapeutic approaches for brain fitness that we will review in
this lecture include:
1 Nootropic agents
3 Exercise, both
mental and physical
4 Dietary changes
5 Lifestyle changes
of risk factors for cognitive decline
It is no longer presumed that senility
need be an inescapable component of advancing age. With simple proactive prevention and early
intervention, e can maintain our mental faculties. A complete
program invoking today's advancements in medical knowledge and innovative
anti-aging therapeutic principles can tune up the aging brain and maintain
complete brain and body fitness.
