Humanity is aging. Fortunately, the bad news ends there. The doctors accepted the challenge and clearly formulated the tasks for the future. Now the question is not just "how long to live", but "to live in what quality." Genetics in this process determines only 20-25%, another 25% is taken over by medicine, the remaining 50% is responsible for lifestyle. A new field of science that has become fantastically popular this year is called "anti-aging medicine." It offers high-quality diagnostics, prevention, recovery and competent management of a person through all the thorns of age-related changes to active longevity.
“Today life offers us incredible opportunities: building a career, traveling, participating in sports competitions … Keeping up with this rhythm is not easy at all. We need strength, - says the general director of the GLMED residence (gl-med.ru), chief physician Yuri Medzinovsky. - Yes, we are aging, but the vectors of aging are different for everyone. This is the basis of such a scientific direction as anti-aging medicine. You can endlessly do aesthetic treatments and hardware procedures, and the result, of course, will be, but not the maximum and not so long-term. It is very important to carry out correct diagnostics and look at age-related changes in the system: calculate possible risks and prevent them. And only after that it is already possible to talk about a change in the quality of life at each specific age. Not just about "smoothing out wrinkles" and tightening the skin,but about a persistent and long-term rejuvenating effect, inextricably linked with well-being and internal energy coming from within.
Where do you need to start your path to "healthy beauty" (let's call it that)? With an extremely accurate understanding of how things are with the body at a given moment. The number in your passport, as a rule, does not say anything about you. For objectivity in this matter, it is necessary to do a complete check-up of the body. In our clinic, 18 markers of aging are assessed: molecular genetic, cardiovascular risk, immune status, metabolic rate … After taking all the necessary readings, from an extremely extended blood test to ultrasound of the brachiocephalic arteries (the lining of the vessels can indicate the possibility of atherosclerosis), we send them at the Research Institute of Physiology and Pathophysiology, where the biological age is calculated.
Based on the results obtained, individual programs are drawn up that allow you to catch up and restore what was lost. In order to boldly move into a beautiful bright future, we have all the possibilities. Clinic residents are monitored throughout the year. They are led by a curator who guides, corrects and controls everything that happens. This comprehensive approach gives very good results. We had residents who became "younger" by almost five years. But, of course, it was a joint work in which their own spirit and diligence played a big role (especially outside the clinic)."
How to start your personal "battle" for quality longevity?
“Anti-age medicine is not just advice“drink more water”or“exercise”, but an individual approach and a personalized treatment protocol based on the results of a large number of tests: from hormonal to genetic, says Marina Ryabus, Ph. D. Sci., cosmetologist, neurologist, chief physician of the Marina Ryabus Clinic (marinaryabus.ru). - That is why we always start working with a patient with a detailed conversation about his lifestyle, habits, food addictions … And only then we determine which tests are needed, because we understand that this is an expensive and long-term business. Based on the results obtained, we are doing what I would call “jewelry tuning” of the body: we achieve the ideal balance of vitamins and microelements, strengthen the immune system, and, if necessary, prescribe hormone replacement therapy.
What specialist should you start the “countdown” with? I would advise first of all to look for a gynecologist-endocrinologist or an expert-level andrologist-endocrinologist. The endocrine system is one of the most important in the body. It is she who controls most of the life processes. The lion's share of health problems start with hormonal imbalances. An endocrinologist is obliged to think in a truly systemic way. He deeply understands the structure of all biochemical and pathological processes in the body. That is why a good endocrinologist has no equal in preventive medicine. The team is already in charge of the rest. Fortunately, today we have at our disposal a whole range of techniques that can prolong youth and active longevity, starting with hormonal and placental therapy and ending with hardware cosmetology."
