Andrea Pennington, Integrative Medicine, answeredAge management medicine (AMM) is dedicated to the science of healthy aging and emphasizes the enhancement of health over the treatment of illness. Traditional medical practices follow the “fix it when it breaks” approach. AMM focuses on disease prevention, wellness and quality of life. Its goal is to promote a more dynamic life throughout middle age and beyond by utilizing scientifically sound, twenty-first century strategies that enhance health, quality of life and longevity.
We must all change our thinking about aging. Older does not mean sicker. The majority of us have a strong enough genetic makeup to live beyond 85. The key is to make the best of the genes we have. Incorporation of AMM practices into our daily lives allows us to compress the time we are sick to the very end of our lives. We cannot stop or reverse the aging process, but we can definitely manage it better than previous generations have. We can avoid premature disability and death. After all, what are the benefits of living longer if we end up in a nursing home locked into a body or brain that doesn’t work during the last 20 to 30 years of our lives?
