CLM 1: THE FOUNDATIONS

Core Learning Module 1 introduces the foundations of preventative, integrative and anti-ageing medicine as a model for early detection, prevention and treatment of chronic age-related diseases, and to restore health and overall wellbeing.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Understand anti-ageing medicine and how we age
  • Define how our biochemistry, organ function chronic disease and lifestyle factors accelerate the ageing process
  • Appreciate the role of anti-ageing medicine as an integrative tool combining nutritional therapy, supplementation, lifestyle changes, hormonal and other pathology testing and the use of anti-ageing treatment protocols
  • Understand the integration of theories of ageing and the processes behind ageing including inflammation, depletion and wear and tear
  • Define and understand the role of hormones identifying the biochemical process of hormones in the body
  • Review hormone testing and treatment protocols using nutrient supplementation, lifestyle and dietary changes
