Can the effects of ageing be reversed?
As demand for health care rises around the globe, it is indispensable to ponder over the consultation time. In developing countries, one of the major problems with their healthcare systems is short consulting time. The scenario is same in both public and private hospitals.
“Shorter consultation times have been linked to poorer health outcomes for patients and a heightened risk of burnout for doctors,” researchers wrote in the British Medical Journal
As per an international study the consultation time vary from 48 seconds in Bangladesh to 22.5 minutes in Sweden on an average basis (Source: NDTV).
Our holistic approach includes tracking the root cause of the problem, addressing that concern and advising the best practices to reverse the effects of ageing.
Intelligent Ageing, a functional medicine approach, recognizes the root-cause of disease which is due to half a dozen lifestyle choices and is much more important than our genetic predisposition. In other words, while genes may ‘load the gun’, lifestyle ‘pulls the trigger’.
With Ageing, the DNA of our cells becomes progressively damaged, causing cells to become irreversibly aged and dysfunctional. Telomeres throughout the body shorten as we age and this underlying mechanism contributes to cardio-metabolic disease and further ageing.
Research from around the world shows that telomeres can actually be increased with certain lifestyle changes. Ageing is a dynamic process that can be accelerated or slowed and even resulting in increasing our lifespan. Telomeres can protect our chromosomes and keep us young.
At Intelligent Ageing, our Age Management Doctor and Lifestyle Coach will guide people with latest anti-ageing science and design a personalized program for their well-being.
