What is Anti-Ageing?

WHAT IS ANTI-AGEING

There is nothing wrong with growing old or looking older, but there is also no harm in looking and functioning at your best. Anti-ageing is about feeling and functioning at younger levels and much more than just fighting wrinkles. We all age, but now we can age with quality years.

The purpose of Anti-Ageing medicine is not to extend life, but rather extend the quality of those years.

We begin to age from the moment we are born and are forever in search of the cure for old age.

Dozens of theories have been proposed. Evolutionists have argued that the ageing mechanism installed in the human body is to insure the continued survival of humankind. They have theorised that the most important time of our lives is our period of fertility, the years during which we’re able to create new life. From nature's and the evolutionary point of view, we are not that useful after around age 40. After this reproductive period many bodily functions begin to decline and that’s where Anti-Ageing medicine technology takes over to improve our quality of living years.

In order to understand how Anti-Ageing medicine can help, a basic explanation of what causes ageing follows.

WHY DO WE AGE? THERE ARE TWO MAIN THOUGHTS

1. AGEING IS PROGRAMMED
We are programmed for ageing, from when we are born. Our body's development is determined by a biological “clock”, and we have no say with this clock

2. AGEING IS ACCIDENTAL
Ageing relies on chance. Cells are destroyed and damaged from free radicals (toxins) or just the wear and tear of daily life.
