Why should you advance your skills?
In an ageing population, it is imperative we understand the issues and can manage the health implications to promote healthy ageing for patients. In Australia, 1 in 7 people are aged 65years and over; comprising of 15% of the population. This is expected to continue to grow to 22% by 2057, and 25% by 2097. The older Australian population has increased by 3% in 20 years and is expected to grow another 3% by 2027, resulting in an increase of age-related diseases and disorders walking through your practice door.

interest his patients in the care of the human frame,
diet and in the cause and prevention of disease. "

Preventative | Integrative | Functional Medicine
At A5M we're committed to promoting the benefits of healthy lifestyle with a focus on preventative and functional medicine techniques to maintain an individual’s health and sustain quality of life.
Healthy ageing is about a preventative, integrative and functional medicine approach to disease prevention, maintaining wellness and the best possible health throughout life!
It is a healthcare model promoting science and research to prolong the healthy lifespan - the length of time that we can live productively and independently and improve the quality of life. It is the pinnacle of biotechnology joined with advanced clinical preventive medicine. This approach is founded on the early detection, prevention, and treatment of age-related dysfunction, disorders, and diseases to restore health and overall well-being.
The preventative, integrative and functional medicine model:
- Provides the framework for a scientifically proven, multi-disciplinary and holistic approach to preventative healthcare and treatment and maintaining and restoring wellness
- Transforms patient treatment and care from an illness (re-active) model to a wellness (pro-active) model
- Incorporates multi-discipline strategies focusing on the key pillars of ageing: diet and nutrition, exercise and lifestyle, supplementation, personalised medicine and hormonal issues in a preventative integrative and anti-ageing medicine approach to treat chronic disorders and promote healthy ageing.
As such, preventative, integrative and anti-ageing medicine is based on principles of sound and responsible medical care that are consistent with those applied in other preventive and integrative medicine specialties.
Preventative, integrative and functional medicine is the future of medicine as we know it and the fastest-growing medical specialty in the world.
