Slow Down the Aging Process – Join the “Life Extension” Movement Today.

Is it possible to be at your peak performance in every aspect of your life in your 50’s and 60’s? What is now considered “Optimal” health and vitality for a middle-aged man or woman?

Until recently, doctors thought that there is little we can do to slow the process of aging, but new scientific data reveals otherwise. The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) is the world’s largest non-profit scientific society of physicians and scientists dedicated to the advancement of technology to detect, prevent, and treat aging related diseases. The Academy promotes research into methods to slow the human aging process and to optimize health.

Yes, our generation can be healthy, and enjoy vitality and energy throughout our 50’s and 60’s.

Anti-Aging Medicine at The Practice in Bakersfield

Bakersfield doctor Jan Mensink, MD, is a long-standing member of the Academy and regularly attends their conferences and seminars. “The key to anti-aging medicine is to promote health and wellness rather than just to treat symptoms of illness. The emphasis is on preventing illness in my patients, and optimizing their life-style so that they can live longer,” said Dr. Mensink. As senior physician at “The Practice” in Bakersfield, CA, Dr. Mensink and the other personal physicians at The Practice can provide this focus of care for their members and patients.

Focus on your health: Offering free nutrition classes, checking hormones levels, vitamin D3 levels, and more have led to over 75% of the members and patients at The Practice losing weight in the past 12 months. Dr. Mensink is convinced that the disease-based approach to medicine is not only costly, it is ineffective.

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. Doctors, and their patients, must focus on doing the right things to bring about healing, health, and wellness.

To practice anti-aging medicine with the members of The Practice, Dr. Mensink MD is led by a wellness-oriented model that uses advanced clinical preventive medicine and longevity medicine principles. He works to keep you healthy and keep you from becoming sick. This fast-growing medical specialty called “anti-aging medicine,” or “longevity medicine,” is achieving demonstrable and objective results that help people avoid many of the degenerative diseases of aging.

Some of the key principles of longevity medicine at “The Practice” in Bakersfield include:

  • Your personal doctor’s focus is on keeping patients well, and optimizing health in the anti-aging medical practice;
  • The patient and their doctor are partners in the wellness and healing process;
    All factors that can influence health, wellness, aging, and disease, are taken into account and discussed including mind, emotions, spiritual issues, and living situations, as well as the body;
  • Whenever possible, interventions that are healthy and natural should be used instead of pharmaceuticals that may have problematic side-effects;
  • Good medicine is based on good science, asking good questions, and is open to new ideas;

Thousands of physicians and practitioners like Dr. Mensink in Bakersfield, as well as at some of the most prestigious teaching hospitals around the world, now embrace the anti-aging medical model. Anti-aging medicine is transforming healthcare.
