Anti-Aging Medicine: Amelia’s Look Into A Medical Controversy

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) Would you like a little extra energy? Most people would.

Thats why coffee shops and supplements are all so popular. But when I started having insomnia and feeling run down and irritable, I knew I needed more than a cup of coffee.

At first, I thought it was early menopause, or worse. It turns out, many women in their 30s and 40s have similar symptoms of weariness and irritability.

The solution I found not only has me feeling more energetic and stronger; it also opened my eyes to a growing controversy in womens medicine.

At first, I turned to Bonnie Erickson, a friend, who suggested I see an anti-aging doctor who had worked wonders for her.

Immediately I felt as though things were different, she said. I felt like I had my quality of life back.

Shes been seeing Dr. Khalid Mahmud for eight years. And after disappointing results with traditional medicine, she swears by his combination of holistic treatments and natural hormones.

I just think its a more natural approach, Bonnie said. Its more of a preventative approach.

Over the years, shes convinced most of her family, including her husband and two of her daughters, to see Mahmud.

One of her daughters, Keri Fuqua, had symptoms similar to mine. She also said her treatment with Mahmud was successful so successful that I couldnt help thinking that I needed to see him myself.

Epidemic of obesity, high stress may contribute to Alzheimer’s

Posted on April 28, 2012, Saturday

KUALA LUMPUR: The epidemic of obesity, insulin resistance, high saturated fat diets, stress, and environmental toxins are all leading to a high inflammatory state and may contribute to Alzheimers disease as a long term effect.

President of the Australian College of Anti-Aging Medicine Dr Nathan Francis said many people nowadays were not focused on a healthy lifestyle as they believed in the existence of magic pills or tests, for early detection and cure.

The public feels we got magic pills, but we dont. Remember that prevention is better than cure, therefore, rather than waiting for magic pills, they should go for exercise to lose weight and also learn to handle their stress by doing yoga or even pray.

Women are facing a higher risk of being diagnosed with Alzheimers disease compared to men as they are lacking in the testosterone hormone. In fact, busy lifestyles nowadays also put typical women in stress, exhaustion and theyre just too tired once they finished their work in the office and return home, he said.

He told Bernama this after giving a talk at the 9th Malaysian Conference and Exhibition on Anti-Aging, Aesthetic and Regenerative Medicine and 2nd International Congress on Anti-Aging, Aesthetic and Regenerative Medicine (Malaysia)(SAAARMM) at a hotel, here, yesterday.

Dr Nathan said the number of diagnosed patients had increased by about two-fold every year and that there were about 4,000 new cases diagnosed for Alzheimer in the United States every week.

Alzheimers disease always happens to the people at the age of sixty and above due to the lack of exercise, not having enough mental stimulation or brain exercises and even not doing ballroom dancing or crossword puzzles.

People have to be active persons and giving brain stimulation by praying, going for a walk and listening to relaxing music may reduce their stress level, he said.

Alzheimer is a disease whereby people tend to forget simple things such as peoples names, appointments and even their daily routine as well as to manage themselves as normal people.

Anti-aging medicine, anyone?

MANILA, Philippines – Anti-aging need not be cosmetic.

This is according to a boutique medical-cum-wellness center, which promises to change Filipinos’ views on health care.

The LifeScience Center for Wellness and Preventive Medicine is promoting anti-aging medicine as an alternative to the disease-based approach of the medical community.

“It is something that we never had in the Philippines before. It is something that should be a cornerstone of medical practice. It is how you know which patients will respond to which medications, which patients could get which disease,” said Benedict Francis Valdecanas.

This runs counter to the perception that anti-aging medicine is purely aesthetics, especially in a country where the practice has been associated with celebrity-focused, and -endorsed, cosmetic surgeries.

Valdecanas said anti-aging medicine uses some of the most advanced scientific and medical technologies to provide “customized” medication, allowing individuals to slow down their internal clocks.

Solta Medical Introduces Liposonix® at AMWC in Monaco and Announces its Portfolio of Aesthetic Energy Devices Reaches …

HAYWARD, Calif., April 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Solta Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: SLTM – News), the pioneer in fractional resurfacing and non-invasive skin tightening and a global market leader in aesthetic treatments, introduced the second generation Liposonix system, its new non-invasive fat reduction device using high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), at the 10th Anti-aging Medicine World Congress (AMWC) in Monaco. Clinical studies have demonstrated an average waist circumference reduction of approximately 2.6 cm (1 inch) after a single Liposonix treatment.

The company also announced that more than two million procedures have been completed around the world using its portfolio of leading aesthetic energy device (AED) products. This industry milestone reflects significant advances made over the past decade, starting with the introduction of Thermage’s radiofrequency skin tightening technology system in 2002 and its most recent evolution incorporates proprietary Comfort Pulse Technology that delivers more therapeutic heat across the treatment area, allowing for a more efficient skin tightening treatment. Thermage was followed in 2004 by Fraxel, a revolutionary fractional laser treatment to resurface the skin and address sun damage and unwanted pigmentation. In 2007, the Isolaz acne fighting system using a gentle vacuum to purify pores and intense pulsed light to kill bacteria was launched. An at-home companion device to Isolaz, CLARO began selling at retail outlets in 2010. More recently, Clear + Brilliant a new, less-invasive approach to laser skin enhancement to prevent the unwanted signs of aging was developed utilizing Fraxel technology, and finally, this year Liposonix.

“Over the years, Solta has helped transform aesthetic medicine – with its deep roots in rigorous science by providing gold-standard energy technologies used to treat patients who sought effective and safe skin treatments,” said Roy G. Geronemus, MD, Clinical Professor of Dermatology at New York University Medical Center and Director of the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York. “Solta products have been go-to treatment solutions for my patients looking for non-invasive options for everything from skin resurfacing and tightening to preventative and maintenance care to slow down the aging process to clearing acne and now fat reduction. I have been using Solta’s entire line of aesthetic energy devices not only because patients ask for them by name but also because the products deliver their promised results time after time.”

“More than two million treatments worldwide is an important milestone for Solta Medical. With this achievement, we continue to demonstrate our leadership position in the market through the growing acceptance of our brand portfolio around the globe,” said Stephen J. Fanning, Chairman of the Board, president and CEO of Solta Medical, Inc.”We are continually investing in R&D and looking to introduce new, safe, innovative devices that deliver the best possible results for physicians and their patients in more than 100 markets around the world.”

(PRWEB) February 29, 2012

Starting from this bigger vision of the whole person in the midst of a complex world, Dr. Kalb brings into play cutting edge research from neuroscience, anti-aging medicine, and psychology. He does this in a style that deeply engages the reader through his clarity of expression, humor, and sage advice. He provides the ultimate game plan to:

While bestselling author Dr. Joe Marshalla says that this book is the most practical, thorough, comprehensive, accurate, down-to-earth, compassionate, and fun-loving guide to what we all must ultimately face.

Dr. Kalb encourages everyone to begin their journey into wellness: Winning at aging starts now, regardless of your age. Its always the right time to find a new vision and live your dreams. Be curious, be grateful, be active, be wise, be nourished, and give. And win at aging!
