Aging is inevitable yet modifiable. It is usually defined in terms of the gradual, insidious and progressive decline in structure and function (including molecular, cells, tissues, organs) of an organism/individual. Biological aging is the major risk factor for most of the diseases and cancers and the aging populations (global aging) affects the economic growth, migration, patterns of work, family structures, health systems and even trade and relative standings of nations explains one of the speaker Dr. N.D.Moulick, The Head, Department of Medicine, Lokmanya Tilak Medical College, Mumbai, India.
While other eminent speaker Dr. Anoop Chaturvedi, CEO and the Founder President of the World Antiaging Network (WAAN) the first peer to peer free global network of antiaging physicians, says that with the advancement of modern medicine and technology the life expectancy of individuals are increasing (increasing the “old olds”) and on the other end, due to various modifiable/non-modifiable, environmental/genetic/life style and other factors, people are showing early signs of aging affecting the daily living and productivity adversely (increasing the “old young”). The “Social Jet Lag” (working against the circadian rhythm) has compounded the adverse aging issues by altering the “Endocrine and Nutritional homeostasis”.
Dr. Light from Dallas Texas, USA comments that Antiaging Medicine works on the principle of preventive medicine (Primordial/Primary/Secondary/Tertiary) applied along with clinical medicine at Individual/population level. With all the discipline of medicine integrated together the “Aging” process can be made more graceful.
Dr. N.D.Karandikar, Head of Cardiology Department, B.J.Medical College, Pune comments that Aging is no more limited to 60 years or more of age. The effects of Hypertension, Diabetes and other chronic illnesses occurring early in the calendar young population is a great matter of concern. The Antiaging and Age Management approach needs to be initiated early in life. Dr.Deepak Chaturvedi seconds his opinion and advocates the more widespread application of the screening procedures early in life.
Genetic factors, lifestyle, and societal investments in a safe and healthful environment are important aspects of successful aging. Traditionally, the aging process has been considered physiologic and unavoidable, but it may not be necessary to accept the grim stereotype of aging as an unalterable process of decline and loss, says Dr. V.B.Borade, Dean, Bharati Vidyapeeth Medical College, Sangli.
One of the eminent pharmacist of International repute Jim, who had also appeared on Dr Phil's TV show says that as life expectancy increases during the coming decades, the overarching goal should be “an increase in years of healthy life with a full range of functional capacity at each stage of life.”
Compression of morbidity can be achieved by adapting healthy lifestyle measures, and several aspects of the aging process of the endocrine system invite the development of routine medical intervention programs offering long-term replacement therapy with one or more hormones to delay the aging process and to allow humans to live for a longer period in a relatively intact state, concludes Dr. Anoop Chaturvedi.
After the huge success of Indomedicon 1, 2, and 3 now Indomedicon 4 is coming with a promise to deliver a totally new flavor where technology meets evidence based medicine, loaded with latest recent advances in antiaging genetics, antiaging nutrition, Aesthetics, Hormone modulation, Weight loss, electronic medical record system and social media tools to enhance anti-aging practices.
The universal process of aging is becoming better understood. There appear to be shared underlying cellular and molecular processes that induce widespread dysregulation in key systems. This dysregulation contributes to clinical manifestations of a AGING phenotype and can be used to understand how to evaluate and manage AGING.
More and more physicians and health care professionals are gearing towards wellness medicine and trying to integrate the latest advances in antiaging & Aesthetic medicine in their practices. World Antiaging Network and Antiaging Medicine and Research are dedicated to make this move easy for the aspiring physicians and invites health professional and policy makers to attend Indomedicon 2013, concludes Dr Chaturvedi, President Antiaging Medicine And Research (AMAR).
