The answer to this question is very simple- we all want a better quality of life, allowing us to reach a higher age free of disease, and able to think, act and live independently rather than becoming a burden to our family, society and ourselves.
If you live in peace, are relaxed at home and at work, eat healthy, exercise and your hormones (e.g. testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, melatonin, growth hormone, DHEA) are well balanced, you have experienced Healthy Aging medicine.
This form of medicine is based on the very early detection, prevention, and reversal of age-related disease. 90% of all adult illness is due to the degenerative processes of aging. This includes heart disease, most cancers, adult-onset diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, autoimmune disease, glaucoma, and Alzheimer’s.
With early detection and appropriate intervention, most of these diseases can be prevented, cured, or have their downward course reversed.
The more important question is how do we achieve longevity and healthy aging? This is the basis of the program called “Cell First®” theory of aging developed by Dr. S. Bergman. The answer to this question is both simple and complex. It is complex because in many of us, it requires changes in the way we act and think after years of being brainwashed that aging is inevitable and that living with disease and morbidity is a normal part of aging. The simple part comes once we overcome our previous perceptions on aging, and come to realize that it is possible to live longer and healthier.
The first goal of the Cell First® program is education on longevity and healthy aging, and the prevention and reversion of the degenerative diseases of aging. This is because the moment we understand these basic issues related to aging, we can then be better equipped to overcome them.
