Healthcare is now at its most critical crossroad. The underlying philosophy of healthcare around the world must be reformed in revolutionary ways. The disease-based approach to medicine is not only costly, it is ineffective.
As reported by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (Cms.gov) U.S. health care spending increased in 2014 by 5.3 percent following growth of 2.9 percent in 2013 to reach $3.0 trillion, or $9,523 per person.
As reported by the Congressional Budget Office, up to one-third of the healthcare spending in the United States - more than $700 billion - does not improve Americans' health outcomes. Health spending is projected to grow 1.3 percentage points faster than Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per year from 2015-2025, and as a result, the health share of GDP is expected to rise from 17.5 percent in 2014 to 20.1 percent by 2025.
Until recently, medicine has presumed that there is little we can do to intervene in the process of aging, but new scientific data reveals otherwise. As a federally registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) is the world's largest non-profit scientific society made up of physicians and scientists dedicated to the advancement of technology to detect, prevent, and treat aging related disease and to promote research into methods to optimize the human aging process. A4M is also dedicated to educating physicians, scientists, and members of the public on anti-aging issues.
Anti-aging medicine is a wellness-oriented model of advanced clinical preventive medicine.
This fast-growing medical specialty is achieving demonstrable and objective results that beneficially impact the degenerative diseases of aging. Thousands of physicians and practitioners in private medical offices, as well as at some of the most prestigious teaching hospitals around the world, are embracing the anti-aging medical model and trying to stop disease before it starts. This new medicine is really transforming healthcare, one practice at a time.
This movement is an innovation in healthcare, blazing new advancements in preventive medicine. Anti-Aging medicine is founded on the application of advanced scientific and medical technologies for the early detection, prevention, treatment, and reversal of age-related dysfunction, disorders, and diseases. It is a healthcare model promoting innovative science and research to prolong the healthy lifespan in humans. The goal of Anti-Aging medicine is not to merely prolong the total years of an individual's life, but to ensure that those years are thoroughly productive and vitally enjoyed.
