People over the age of 60 account for the fastest growing segment of the populations of most Western countries. While individuals and the population as a whole are living longer, there is also an explosion of morbidity and disability associated with chronic diseases like coronary artery disease, obesity, diabetes, arthritis, and neurological disorders. Eight risk factors have been identified as major contributors to the development of these chronic diseases characteristic of unhealthy aging:

ú Chronic Inflammation Cascade

ú Impaired Gastrointestinal Function

ú Dysglycemia

ú Sub-Optimal Mitochondrial Function

ú Defective Detoxification Capacity

ú Imbalanced Methylation Reactions

ú Poor Immune Function

ú Hormonal Imbalances

The pathophysiology of unhealthy aging is of major concern not just to those currently over 60 but for all persons planning to live beyond the age of 60, regardless of their current age. Fortunately each of these risk factors is modifiable through proactive changes in diet, nutrition, lifestyle, and environment. ~ Functional clinical laboratory assessments offer clinicians precise tools to evaluate and address these complex, challenging, and interdependent connections between various systems, organs, tissues and cells. Precise and targeted therapeutic intervention allows you to reverse the effects of accelerated aging. ~ This presentation will offer a comprehensive overview, clinical relevance, and examples of practical clinical applications over a wide spectrum of functional clinical laboratory assessments related to the development of chronic disease and unhealthy aging.
