More than ever, today’s baby boomer generation is obsessed with looking and feeling as young as they can for as long as possible. This intense desire probably stems from modern day technological and medical advancements which allow individuals to live long enough to experience old age and the diseases that go along with it. We all want to live long, but we want to do it only if we can feel healthy and vibrant in the process. Furthermore, the emphasis placed on physical beauty by the American media and society at large today forces many of us to do whatever we can to look as glamorous as possible in order to feel like we can compete and succeed in today’s competitive world.antiage3

So, with this background in mind, did the field of Anti-aging Medicine morph as a result of the compilation of sound scientifically verified core principles or did it develop overnight, so to speak, merely in response to a community yearning for looking and feeling better (e.g. demand driven)? We feel the answer is a little bit of both.

The initial anti-aging surge sparked approximately 20 years ago in response to a community demand without much scientific support. However, with the development of reputable societies like the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) and the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM), science seems to be driving the movement more than ever.

Make no mistake, aging and mortality are inevitable. However, our newly found understanding of human physiology and the critical elements for healthy living allow us to better customize health paths that can improve quality of life, reduce or delay the development of many chronic diseases and possibly increase longevity.
