DECADE OF HEALTHY AGEING 2021-2030
"Healthy Ageing is the process of developing and maintaining the functional ability that enables wellbeing in older age. Functional ability is about having the capabilities that enable people to be and do what they have reason to value." - World Health Organisation
WHAT WE DO
Healthy Ageing | Personalised Medicine | Chronic Disease Management | Wellness Medicine
A5M recognises that continuing education and connection with local and international experts, and industry peers is vital to keep abreast of advances in preventative health modalities and to maintaining effective practice, for better patient outcomes.
For over 16 years, A5M has provided medical, allied healthcare, and aesthetic practitioners with the highest standard of postgraduate education, events, and networking opportunities in preventative medicine and disease management to promote healthy ageing and provide better patient outcomes.
A5M programs provide the framework for a multi-disciplinary and holistic approach to preventative healthcare and treatment by focusing on the pillars of healthy ageing:
Diet and Nutrition | Exercise, Lifestyle and Stress Management | Supplementation | Inflammation | Hormonal and Metabolic Balance | Cognitive Function and Mood Disorders | Genetics | Diagnostic Tools
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 United Nations Decade of Healthy Ageing (2021-2030)
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.
The pillars of healthy ageing
Diet & Nutrition
Scientists have found that what we eat, when 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.
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.
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.
Genomic and epigenomic research has led to the advent of personalised medicine, tailoring a patient's treatment program based on their particular genetic profile.
Preventative screening leads to early disease detection for some diseases, and early detection offers a greater likelihood of treatment success.
ADVISORS & TEAM
The A5M advisory panel comprises of respected leaders and experts within the medical and commercial fields who have been invited to provide A5M with a strategic overview relating to preventative, integrative and anti-ageing medicine.
The panel provides expert opinion and support to ensure we deliver you credible, evidence-based research, education and protocols.
They help oversee and ensure content, programs and events provided by A5M reflects high-quality clinical care and patient safety.
