What is longevity medicine? You might have heard about this up-and-coming field of medicine in recent years, but we can assure you it’s more than just a buzzword.
Longevity medicine focuses on not just increasing our lifespan but enhancing the quality of our years. In this blog post, we’ll introduce you to the world of longevity medicine – your passport to a healthier, higher quality life, and how Bartley Clinic can be your trusted partner on this journey.
Geroscience vs Preventive Medicine
There’s 2 broad schools of thought within Longevity Medicine – geroscience and preventive medicine. At Bartley Clinic, we’re adopters of the Preventive Medicine approach.
Geroscience views ageing as a condition that needs to be ‘treated’. It is research-oriented, focused on the molecular and cellular processes associated with ageing, with the aim of developing interventions that extend one’s lifespan by slowing or reversing ageing processes
Preventive medicine involves taking proactive steps to detect and address health issues before they become serious. Regular health check-ups, monitoring key biomarkers (health indicators), and lifestyle adjustments are all part of our preventive approach. By identifying and managing potential health risks early, we believe you can significantly increase your chances of a longer, healthier life.
Longevity medicine is not about living till a 100 and it goes beyond traditional healthcare by focusing on proactive and preventive measures, personalised treatments, and utilising technology & advanced diagnostic tools. The key principle is to optimise your health in every aspect—physically, mentally, and emotionally.
