- PRESS RELEASE
Leading experts from the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine will convene at The Palace Hotel from 8-11 November to present evidence to support preventative medicine as the most efficient way to tackle today's most notable health concerns.
Servane Collette, the Academy's international representative explains that, "Our academy acts as an educational entity to ensure that standards are established and that doctors are qualified to deliver these protocols."
"The Academy,-a US non-profit medical organisation comprising 24,000 members is dedicated to educating physicians scientists and members of the public on innovative technologies and anti-aging issues," she said. "It supports integrative interventions to take a proactive approach in place of conventional therapies that are more reactive in nature."
Lecturing at the upcoming symposium, Dr. Joseph Lamb, a clinical researcher at the Functional Medicine Research Centre in the USA explains that the scope of anti-aging medicine can help prevent and tackle widespread conditions like diabetes.
"Patients do not just wake up one morning with diabetes and cardiovascular disease; it is a product of a lifetime of bad lifestyle choices," he said. "It is our hope that by incorporating effective interventions in their practices, doctors will be able to offer their patients practical solutions for productive living."
Dr. Lamb continues to explain the role of lifestyle in optimising the aging process, "Living well in our modern day world is increasingly difficult. Divergence from our ancestral diets and increasing environmental toxicity are a mismatch with our genes. Functional medicine offers the physician a unique set of lenses to explore the physiological imbalances that create dysfunctional phenotypic expressions of our genotype."
Functional medicine promotes a range of lifestyle changes such as a relative calorie restriction, daily exercise and adequate sleep as major factors in the healthy ageing process.
Dr. Mark Rosenberg, Director of the Fellowship in Integrative Cancer explains how important is it to "treat early, medicate when necessary".
Renowned for inducing remission in cancer patients, he too, has also been invited to the symposium to explain why conventional chemotherapy is inadequate for the treatment of advanced stage solid tumours and will discuss the role of lifestyle, low dose metronomic chemotherapy and stem cells in leading to cancer cell death.
Further to educating doctors, a general public event will be held on at The Palace Hotel on 8th November to equip the community with the knowledge and tools to tackle today's most notable age and lifestyle related disorders.
