Our society is currently experiencing a sharpincrease in complex chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, mental illness, and autoimmune disorders – and facing these challenges requires a new way of looking at medicine.
Longevity is about being proactive and making the right choices today, for your health and happiness tomorrow, choices that we build upon 5 key pillars; medicine that is Preventive, Personalised, Holistic, Integrative and Regenerative.
Failure to prevent future health problems is a critical flaw with current medical thinking - something Longevity was designed to avoid. While virtually every complex, chronic disease is preceded by long-term warning signs, conventional medicine focuses purely on acute care, on diagnosing short-term symptoms or traumas and applying specific, prescribed drugs or surgeries to treat the immediate problem. In contrast, we want to treat complex, chronic diseases before they occur. This means taking into account an individual’s unique genetic makeup as well as the influence their modern lifestyle has upon them, looking at the underlying causes of disease and providing the nutrition, diet, detox and exercise strategies and regenerative therapies to not only heal – but essentially to prevent.
Our personalized and integrative approach helps us better understand how genetic, environment and lifestyle factors could be affecting our guests’ long- term health. Our approach is science-based but designed to treat the person, rather than the illness. In creating a health and wellness strategy tailored to their needs, we focus on the biochemically unique aspects of each individual, creating bespoke interventions that help restore their physiological, psychological and structural balance.
Shifting our focus from the disease to the person, however, means that we need to address every aspect of their case instead of an isolated set of symptoms. While looking at how the complex web of interactions between their history, physiology and lifestyle may be causing illness, we also consider wider causes and influences, deeply examining internal (mind, body, and spirit) and external (physical and social environment) factors that could be damaging their long-term health and wellbeing.
A broader understanding is one thing, but we still need to have the right tools in place to deal with what we have learnt. By integrating conventional Western medical practices with complementary medicine treatments, wellness practices and eastern ancient wisdom, we can act decisively and effectively on any early warning signs that we detect. Using the latest laboratory and diagnostic techniques, we can then tailor the right combination of pharmaceuticals, natural medicines, physical exercise, supplements, therapeutic diets, detoxification programs, regenerative therapies, stress-management and energy rebalance techniques from an incredibly diverse world of healing solutions.
One thing we never forget is that the human body has incredible potential to self-heal its own imbalances, and as soon as we are able, we should look to optimise our ability to do so. As well as treating and preventing illnesses, Longevity is also concerned with ensuring that our guests unlock the formidable capabilities of their body and mind, promoting the detoxification and regeneration of their tissues, organs and cells - and also rebalancing their energy fields.
We now know that deficiencies and toxins gradually build up before causing permanent cellular inflammation, giving us time, through regular evaluations and monitoring, to detect them early enough to delay, or even prevent, the resulting disease. Specific medical, genetic and hormonal tests, as well as differentiated premium biochemical assessments and the conventional clinical exams & imaging of our partner HPA, allow us to check for signs of pre-disease or any predisposition to neurodegenerative diseases, premature aging, obesity, cancer and diabetes. From this we will know which health and wellness therapies are right for you and your own unique needs.
ULTIMATELY, THIS IS WHAT OUR FIVE PILLARS ARE ALL ABOUT, THE DETECTION, PREVENTION AND TREATMENT OF DISEASE RELATED TO CELLULAR AGING.
These are the foundations of Longevity, but, at the end of the day, choosing the right path for your future health is the responsibility of one person – you.
