At the current time ending the aging process is a purely theoretical possibility being debated in the corridors of academia. However, with the globalization of technologies and the expansion of medical research facilities around the world (particularly in China and India) advances in anti-aging therapies will accelerate at a startling rate over the next 10-15 years. Some of the concepts established in ending the aging process will not only be brought into sharper focus but real solutions will begin to emerge on the horizon.
Consider, for example, the major biological breakthroughs in the last ten years alone – the decoding of the human genome, research into stabilizing telomeres and regenerative medicine utilizing stem cells. Such impressive progress illustrates that many of the scientific hurdles to end the aging process are being systematically overcome. The formulation of a comprehensive therapy to incrementally mitigate an, later on, to reverse aging is tantalizingly close.
However, in the western world to deliver a beneficial biological research breakthrough from the laboratory, via a battery of clinical animal and human trials, to final public availability takes anywhere from 10-15 years. It represents a huge financial investment and mandatory FDA approval is a procedural maze. Hence in the near future new ground breaking therapies, including anti-aging treatments, may first appear in less regulated parts of the world like China and India, which also actively promote the relatively novel concept of medical tourism.
For your benefit this publication will continuously review emerging anti-aging treatments and will search out world-wide facilities offering such advanced services to the public. It can be anticipated, however, that such therapies, even if offered in less regulated low cost countries, will initially be extremely expensive.
In the interim you must concentrate on the anti-aging components that are currently available including:
• advanced nutrition
• all round physical and mental exercise programs
• relaxation therapies
• avoidance of toxins
• hormone replacement therapy
• advanced supplements including injectable glutathione, placenta extracts, etc.
Probably the most well known gerontologist (the study of human aging) is Aubrey de Grey. De Grey is a British theoretical scientist and originator of “Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence" or SENS. This project proposes to research regenerative medical procedures to repair all of the age-related damages in...
