The equation E = GHA probably means very little to the vast majority of people. It is in fact the official explanation of time: the intangible concept of life. For the layman, the scientific community define time as, “An ongoing and continuous sequence of events that occur in succession, from past through the present, and to the future”.
Within the big picture of life, the boundaries of time are incomprehensible. The average person is unable to bring any reality or perception to the millions of years that have passed, and the even more millions of years that are yet to come. For most of us, the boundaries of time are drawn around our own existence, our own personal lifetime on the planet.
In planetary terms, we look upon the passing of time as evolution, which includes human beings. However, when we think of the micro-time span of our personal lifetime, we don’t consider it as evolution, we simply view it as aging. Quite simply, a person doesn’t evolve, they simply get old.
Unlike evolution, which is the regenerative process over time, aging is the degenerative process as a result of time, creating definitive lifespans. Time may be an infinite concept, but life is most definitely finite, there are boundaries to our individual existence.
The Ageing Process
Unofficially, old age is thought to begin at the age of 65. In reality the aging process begins at the point of reaching adulthood. From the moment “growing up” ceases, the degenerative process begins.
Ageing is actually a complex, multi-faceted process of change. Biological, physiological and psychological changes are unavoidable as we age. Also, our social and behavioral functions alter with age. The most obvious age-related changes are benign, such as wrinkles in the skin and greying hair. It is the unseen changes that can have a negative effect on the quality of life, and ultimately, life itself.
All of the body’s organs can be affected by age, their designated processes slow down and become more inefficient. Ageing brings on greater susceptibility to disease as the body’s immune system becomes less responsive and efficient at fighting threats to its wellbeing. Older people are also far more susceptible to physical injury as physical and cognitive efficiency declines.
Slowing Down the Ageing Process
Everyone wants to live a long life. They also want to live a healthy life. The sad fact is that, in many cases, a decrease in health and wellbeing tend to go hand in hand with old age. There may be a point at which an impaired quality of life negates the benefit of a long life.
We take for granted that time goes in one direction, it is only the future that we can look forward to, time never goes backwards. And let us be very clear, ageing also only goes in that one same direction. We cannot reverse ageing. The very best we can achieve is to slow down the physical, biological and physiological process.
Samitivej Hospital’s Anti-Ageing Center has paid close attention to scientific laboratory tests and experiments in the pursuit of slowing down the ageing process. Further studies of the ageing process in humans haveled to the knowledge and understanding of how the process of ageing can be slowed down.
The ground breaking Anti-Ageing Center uses known science, from a molecular to a social level, to gleam a thorough understanding of all the factors that determine why some people “age well” and yet other people fair less well and become more susceptible to age-related diseases and disabilities.
The center employs specific genetic testing to aid in the process of assessing a person’s rate of ageing, and importantly, an individual’s biological age. The tests will also tell the specialists whether a person has any predisposition towards allergic reactions to particular medications or susceptibility towards developing cancer.
Balancing a person’s levels of hormones is an essential part of ensuring that the aging process does not run at an excessive rate. The endocrine glands are constantly releasing hormones directly into the bloodstream, thus, via blood testing, any imbalance can be identified.
There are many identified hormone imbalances, the 5 most common being hypo and hyperthyroidism, adrenal insufficiency, polycystic ovary syndrome, hypogonadism and diabetes. The Anti-Ageing Center’s specialists can correct these imbalances with natural hormone replacement.
We understand that maintaining the correct level of vitamins and minerals is essential for general health and wellbeing. However, this essential balance is not just about maintaining current health, but also for reining in the ageing process.
As a person ages the balance of vitamins and minerals will alter, thus periodic testing is vital to control the rate of ageing. With age, particular attention should be paid to the levels of calcium, vitamin D, vitamin B-12, potassium, fiber and magnesium. Precision testing will expose any deficiencies which can then be precisely corrected.
Personalized Treatment Plans
At the Anti-Ageing Center every individual is treated as exactly that, an individual. No two people are the same, on the outside or on the inside. Therefore, there is no “off the shelf” cure-all treatment. This makes personalized treatment plans essential in the pursuit of slowing the ageing process.
With this in mind the Anti-Ageing Center has created their unique Personalized Lifestyle Modification Program. This ground breaking approach to slowing down the biological ageing process is now showing remarkable results.
The program is not only about the intervention of modern technology and medical specialists, it is also about the fundamental basics. They are diet and exercise. Many people, inadvertently, are not aware that they can stem the relentless march of the ageing process through having a greater level of self-awareness.
Knowledge is most certainly power when it comes to slowing down the ageing process. Following specialized assessment, as part of the Personalized Lifestyle Modification Program, the imparting of knowledge to the individual in the form of diet and exercise, specifically tailored to them, is given.
Additionally, the program is not a one-off assessment, diagnosis and treatment plan, it is ongoing, evolving sequence of assessment and rebalancing of every individual’s biological and physiological health and lifestyle. The informative flexibility of the program allows each person to make informed choices and adjustments to diet and lifestyle to maximize their physical and biological health.
With all the individual facets of aging having been assessed, adjusted and corrected where appropriate, and then put back together as a coherent health and lifestyle package, will enable each and every individual to abate the ageing process.
