It is generally accepted by scientists, clinicians, and the public that death or disability from cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and neurodegenerative disorders may be avoidable. Toward this goal, health enthusiasts have begun reducing risk factors by incorporating positive behaviors regarding nutrition, exercise, and tobacco use into their daily lives. The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine has progressed beyond advocating simple lifestyle change, and is devoted to a science that optimizes the metabolic processes of life itself.
The physicians and scientists at A4M seek to facilitate expeditious advances in areas of longevity medicine that include genetic engineering, hormonal replacement therapy, advanced diagnostics of preventable disease, and the biomarkers of aging. We serve the practicing clinician so that the multiple benefits of these life-saving and life-extending technologies may be more rapidly available to the public. We ask of ourselves and our colleagues open-mindedness and self-reflection, essential qualities to the advancement of our profession.
We've gone beyond merely verbalizing ideas. We are currently developing therapeutic protocols and innovative diagnostic tools to aid physicians in the implementation of effective longevity treatment. Our vision challenges the present convention of health beliefs, yet we believe those willing to consider the new reality of Anti-Aging will embrace this progressive approach to preventive medicine.
The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine is a non-profit organization.
