Suitability for joining an age management programme
The sooner you start an anti-ageing preventive medicine or age management programme, the better.
Although, from 30 years on, and more markedly in the 40s, is when signs of ageing start to appear significantly.
It is never too late to start caring for ourselves and preventing.
Many people believe that from the age of 60 there is nothing that can be done. However, in this age group, margins for improvement are much higher. There are studies that show very significant improvements in several biomarkers related to health and age and an increase in quality of life, even in nonagenarian people who have done an anti-ageing preventive medicine or age management medicine programme. For example, strength training for the lower limbs prevents falls and hip fractures and increases the quality of life and life expectancy for people who are older than 90.
The aim is precisely to maintain and improve that wellness and health that you are already enjoying. Although the decline in our functionalities is subtle in some cases, it exists in everybody as they age.
Declining health and wellness happens to all human beings with age, nobody escapes from this. But sometimes, you get used to it and do not remember the vitality you had at the age of 30, resigning yourself to the changes of your body and its functionality over time.
Following a good age management programme you will be able to maintain that wellness and even improve it, and more importantly, prevent diseases and become older with an optimal quality of life.
Of course. A good age management programme improves very obviously and even reverses most of the previous circumstances, improving your general state of energy, vitality, dynamism, libido, physical condition, sleep and own body image, among others.
People never stop ageing. So, the ideal thing is that an anti-ageing preventive medicine or age managementprogramme is continued forever.
The objective is not to reach a temporary improvement and leave it, it is to maintain an optimum state of health and to prevent age-related diseases during all the ageing process. If you abandon it, you go back to the initial state where it started, of course, having gained all the time when you were doing the programme.
The results vary according to each individual, but in most cases, improvements start to be noticed in a few days.
Although the programme’s main objective is to prevent age-related diseases, in a short period of time you will start to notice improvements on a physical, emotional, intellectual and sexual level. Everything depends on the starting point. For example:
- At an older age, the changes are usually more visible. Thus, the hormonal decline is so marked, that in few days you can see an overall improvement in vitality, mood, libido and in all the symptoms related to menopause in women (hot flushes, vaginal dryness, etc.).
- Without taking age into account, there are acute adaptive responses to dietary changes and to exercise within a short time.
- If your rest is poor due to a desynchronisation of your ‘internal clock’, it will start to improve little by little, although this process could take more time.
- Antioxidants, supplements, change of habits, monitoring biomarkers, etc. are maybe not seen reflected in visible changes in the short term, but they are in the medium and long- term. There are already many clients who compare themselves with their peers and they notice a substantial difference both physically and in the level of health.
A person who quits the programme returns to his basal state. That is to say, to the initial situation before starting the programme, without having any rebound effect. His body will return to its normal ageing rhythm. Nevertheless, the time he has spent having an optimal state of health will have a positive effect on his future outlook of health. For example, it is scientifically proven that despite most obese people becoming overweight again, it is preferable they do a diet and take care of themselves during some time and weighing less than doing nothing and weighing more throughout their lifetime.
Usually, the programme will positively interfere in most age-related diseases like cardiovascular, arterial hypertension, diabetes, obesity, dyslipidemia and many others.
A good age management programme very often achieves reducing and even stopping medication for the treatment of some diseases. Our specialists must liaise with your primary care doctor or specialist if necessary, with the aim of complement both treatments.
Your programme will never replace your primary care doctor and your specialists.
It is important to bear in mind that age management medicine prevents diseases and it often improves them, even achieving to cure some already ongoing diseases, but is not a substitute. You must continue visiting your doctor when you are ill.
Natural is not always good.
In the past, dying from a simple cold or from an infection and living without light or hot water was natural. Thanks to research, medicine and science, life expectancy has increased and we have improved our way of living. But what happens with the quality of life in this last phase?
In the same way we use electricity for light at night, we should take care of ourselves to try to live longer and better. That is what we do at Neolife, prevent diseases and improve quality of lifestarting at the age of 35.
That is precisely what this is about, to do everything possible to have autonomy and maintain the best quality of life during as much time as possible and therefore be able to enjoy our loved ones and for them to enjoy us with all of our physical and intellectual abilities.
There is not anything more enjoyable than what gives you a healthy and full life.
Often, ‘healthies’ or healthy people are described as obsessed with health and it is thought that they do not know how to enjoy life when the reality is, in fact, the opposite. To adopt a healthy attitude towards life is enjoyable and moreover allows you to enjoy of many things that you would not be able to achieve without good health.
There is no doubt that genetics influence life expectancy, but not as much as we think. Genetics accounts for 30%, while the environmental factors (lifestyle and medical interventions) account for 70%.
The fact that we have a family history of long longevity does not guarantee us that we are going to live many years, and by no means in good conditions. It is essential, therefore, to have good lifestyle habits and if possible, to implement the necessary medical interventions to prevent and improve our quality of life. This is what is done in an anti-ageing preventive medicine programme.
