At this point, please allow me to explain what Anti-Aging implies and more importantly, what it does not imply. There has been a great deal of emphasis placed upon this topic in the last several decades as people are living longer lives, but are they living better lives?
Although, from a collective standpoint, humans are living longer, quite frequently we are living longer in a state of ill health due to the manifestations of chronic disease despite advancements in modern medicine. Does this state of health equate to improvement in wellness, quality of life and well-being?
This question and many others are currently being addressed by the application of Anti-Aging Medicine.
The truth is that we all age, regardless of what we do. However, there is enough evidence available today which illustrates that the process of aging and the relative effects it has upon the human organism can be modified to a great extent!
Health research has increasingly indicated that, how an individual chooses to live their life frequently can affect the degree and extent to which and how they age.
Generally speaking, individuals who consume a better diet, exercise regularly, employ positive stress-reduction and lifestyle modifications experience less chronic disease through time, look and feel better and rely much less upon medical intervention as they age. In point of fact, these individuals can delay the consequences of aging relative to others around them who, although the same age from a chronological perspective are much older from a functional-physiological perspective.
People who age well, tend to have better health outcome scores and this can be expressed by measures which evaluate body composition, heart function, blood chemistry, functional capacity, levels of perceived disability, emotional state and quality of life.
The concept of Anti-Aging does not apply to external, cosmetic enhancements as these processes only try to make an individual look younger externally and do not address the core components of Anti-Aging Medicine, which have been well-researched and documented.
The important key, core process and rationale demonstrated by The Vitality Project are found within the principles of Anti-Aging Medicine.
The Vitality Project is an individualized, evidenced-based custom health system intended to improve and enhance the lives of people over the age of forty, whose ultimate intention is to age well!
