Ninety percent of adult illness results from the degenerative processes of aging. This includes heart disease, most cancers, adult-onset diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, autoimmune disease, glaucoma, and Alzheimer’s. With early detection and appropriate intervention, most of these diseases can be prevented, cured, or have their downward course reversed.
Age Management medicine, also referred to as Anti-Aging medicine, is based on the very early detection, prevention, and reversal of age-related diseases. It is the newest clinical medical specialty—the “optimum” of wellness and longevity—and employs extensive treatments in the preventative health care field, far beyond just cholesterol testing and mammograms.
Within the last 100 years, the average lifespan has doubled. The medical community has now developed ways to ensure the second half of our lives is just as rewarding, happy and healthy as the first. This is a profound paradigm shift in the way the medical field views aging and age-related disease and Revita is at the forefront of this movement—using only the best evidence-based and effective treatments, improving overall health and wellness.
What is the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine?
The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) is a US federally registered non-profit organization comprised of 22,000 member physicians, health practitioners, scientists, governmental officials, and others from over 100 nations.
The A4M is dedicated to the advancement of technology to detect, prevent, and treat aging related disease and to promote research into methods to retard and optimize the human aging process. The A4M is also dedicated to educating physicians, scientists, and members of the public on biomedical sciences, breaking technologies, and anti-aging issues.
The A4M believes that the disabilities associated with normal aging are caused by physiological dysfunction which in many cases are amenable to medical treatment such that the human lifespan can be increased, and the quality of one’s life enhanced as one grows chronologically older.
Age Management Medicine is based on the scientific principles of responsible medical care consistent with those of other healthcare specialties.
