I really enjoy being a Private GP and I really enjoy the aesthetic and non-surgical part of my practice to but I’m passionate about getting to the root of the problem.  Treat the condition, even anti-ageing, but what is the cause?  Age management offers answers of how nutrition, lifestyle, modern day living, stress has a critical role in ageing.

It is not just the fact that we may smoke, have caught too much sun or drink too much, it could possibly be all be in our predisposition. How can it could help to address the ageing process much earlier, offer hormone replacement therapy alternatives, give answers for a reduced libido?   I am going to the Age Management Medicine Group conference in Las Vegas next week to find out.

Age Management Medicine is a proactive, preventative approach to healthcare for an ageing population focused on preservation of optimum human function and quality of life making every effort to modulate the process of ageing prior to the onset of degenerative ageing.  The basic tenets of Age Management Medicine are patient evaluation through extensive medical history, lifestyle assessment, physical examination and laboratory evaluation to establish personalized proactive treatment plans consisting of proper diet, exercise, stress management and appropriate medical interventions.

I will be sharing some of the research and finding upon my return.
