In more recent years, A5M has provided programs for aesthetic medicine practitioners to understand the connection between internal and external health and how to integrate preventative medicine principles alongside aesthetic procedures to help achieve superior results and better patient outcomes.

WHAT IS HEALTHY AGEING?

The Pillars of Healthy Ageing

Disabilities associated with normal ageing are caused by physiological dysfunctions which in many cases respond to medical treatment to help increase the human lifespan and enhance quality of life in later years.
We no longer accept generalities about 'growing older' like genetic predisposition, environment, lifestyle or natural physiological processes. Anti-ageing medicine clearly defines a multi-disciplinary regimen with several treatment protocols to provide a more holistic approach to the ultimate in preventative medicine.
A5M is committed to promoting the benefits of a healthy lifestyle with a focus on preventative and functional medicial techniques to maintain an individual's health and sustain quality of life.

Our content is driven by the pillars of healthy ageing:

Diet & Nutrition

Scientists have found that what we eat and how much we consume influences how long and how well we live. Nutrient and Caloric intake influence and improve health and longevity, extending lifespan.

Exercise, Lifestyle & Stress Management

Substantial health benefits occur with regular physical activity that is aerobic in nature, including strength and resistance training to increase muscular strength, endurance, and bone density. Stress is an inevitable by-product of our way of life, and can affect how quickly we age, and how good we feel.

Supplementation

Is important to provide nutritional building blocks required by the body for optimal functioning, and the protection against free radical attacks caused by poor dietary habits, lifestyle, and environmental pollution.

Inflammation

Ageing is a progressive degenerative process tightly integrated with inflammation and the inflammatory responses. Environmental and lifestyle causes of inflammation may also contribute to modulation of both inflammation and age-related dysfunction.

Hormonal & Metabolic Balance

Levels of key hormones naturally decline with age. The use of hormone replacement therapy where indicated constitutes a legitimate and important life-enhancing medical application.

Cognitive Function & Mood Disorders

Cognitive decline, dementia and mood disorders are not inevitable with age. The principles of anti-ageing medicine apply directly to maintaining brain health and cognitive function.

Genetics

Genomic and epigenomic research has led to the advent of personalised medicine, tailoring a patient's treatment program based on their particular genetic profile.

Diagnostic Tools

Preventative screening leads to early disease detection for some diseases, and early detection offers a greater likelihood of treatment success.
