Acupuncture and herbal medicine, known as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) have been effective treatments for thousands of years. The ancient Chinese were original purveyors of anti-aging medicine. Herbal medicine was pursued by the ancients in hopes of finding the elixir of immortality, a pursuit that has continued into modern day.

Anti-aging medicine is a clinical specialty that is based on sound, scientific principles. Anti-aging specialists believe age associated ailments are not a normal process of aging but, rather a pathology that can be interrupted in the early stages, years before a diagnosis is given. We believe this is is the future of medicine. Anti-aging is a new medical speciality that requires extensive post-graduate training as well as a comprehensive board exam in the following areas.

  • Fundamentals of Preventative Medicine
  • Mechanisms of Aging and Disease & Lifespan Research
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Cognitive and Neurodegenerative Diseases & Impairments
  • Diagnostics & Assessments
  • Endocrinology
  • Immune System & Infectious Diseases
  • Metabolic Dysfunctions & Diseases
  • Musculoskeletal Diseases & Impairments
  • Respiratory Diseases & Impairments

The American Medical Association took a vote on Tuesday and declared that 78 million American adults and 12 million children have a new medical condition requiring treatment. That’s right folks, obesity is now a disease. obesity_epidemic_america

In some ways this could be good. For some it may be an eye opener and they will realize that being fat like everyone else isn’t ok, it’s a disease.

However, for those stuck in the medical system, this may mean more lap band surgeries and medications. Very good for the surgeons, the pharmaceutical companies and the manufactures of plus size clothing, but not so good for the consumer.

If you’re reading this and are struggling with you weight, acupuncture can help with food cravings but that’s just to get you started. Check out our Anti-aging Body Make-over and rev up your metabolism, learn to eat for health. Your body will thank you.
