From the moment a child is born it begins to age. Initially, the ageing process is one of growth and development. The growth of our body tends to peter out between the ages of 18 to 20. However, mental maturity and the development of the brain can go on for another 10 years.

Although physical and neurological growth will reach their peaks, the ageing process doesn’t stop. From maximum maturity onwards, the ageing process becomes one of a degenerative nature. Ageing is often defined as, “the time-related deterioration of the physiological functions necessary for survival and fertility.”

From the body reaching its physiological peak, it plateaus, then begins its journey of decline. The rate at which the body declines is dependent on many factors, from inherent and contracted health issues to lifestyle and environment. The only two factors that we can be sure of are that everyone will age and that no two individuals will age in exactly the same way.

Although we cannot reverse or halt the march of time, there are things we can do that help to slow the effects that time has on our bodies. To do so we need to be aware of the things that may be detrimental to our short, or long-term, health, both physically and mentally.

We are all well aware of the outward signs of ageing. Wrinkles, sagging skin, greying hair, baldness, and eyesight deterioration are the most obvious visual signs. More inwardly, an individual may experience aches and pains as muscles and joints wear with the passing of time.

The functioning of the body’s organs is likely to become impaired as part of the ageing process. Undesirable products will build up in the tissues of the organs. Lipofuscin, and other fatty substances, build up causing connective tissues to become stiff along with the blood vessels and airways suffering with varying degrees of rigidity.

Address the outward, inward obvious and not-so-obvious effects of ageing need not be daunting. With expert advice, diagnostics, and treatment where appropriate, the ageing process can be slowed to maximize a person’s well-being and life quality. There is no establishment better equipped to do this than Samitivej Srinakarin Hospital.

Samitivej’s Anti-Aging Programs are numerous and varied, dependent on individual requirements. Each and every element of every program is carried out with the utmost diligence by highly trained, qualified professionals thus ensuring the very best in patient care.

Oxidant and Antioxidant Measurement Program

Firstly, what are they? An antioxidant is a substance that prevents oxidation. These substances are in fact reducing agents. An oxidizing agent is a substance which facilitates oxygen for oxidation. 

There are far too many antioxidants to list, however, most people will be familiar with the common ones, such as vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, plus all the other related carotenoids. Additionally, the minerals selenium and manganese are also familiar names.

Foods with oxidative risks include almost everything we ingest. Most of what we eat will be negatively affected by the presence of oxygen. It affects the smell and flavour of food, as well as breaking down cell structures and promoting rancidity, all of which are potentially harmful to humans.

By taking samples the team at the Well-Being Health Center can measure the balance between the oxidants and the antioxidants. Should there be an imbalance, medication and dietary advice can then be administered.

Nutrient Plus Program

The health center’s Nutrient Plus Program is a comprehensive analysis of the body’s balance of all the vital nutrients essential for good health. The testing begins with a physical examination to ascertain the level of general health of the individual. This is followed by a PAT Test (Plasma Antioxidant Test).

Additionally, a Radical Total - d-ROMS Test will be carried out. Testing will also be carried out for all the essential vitamin levels in the body. This includes vitamin B12, vitamin A, beta and alpha-carotene, alpha and gamma vitamin E, lycopene, coenzyme Q10 and vitamin C. The levels of the vital minerals in the body will also be ascertained, including zinc, chromium, magnesium, and copper, plus many more.

Any imbalance in the levels of vitamins and minerals can then be addressed. A tailored and detailed rebalancing program of treatment can then be designed specifically for each individual. The treatment program includes advice on diet and lifestyle choices that will enable the person to live a healthier, more fulfilling life.

Weight Loss Program

Without a doubt, weight plays a part in the body’s ageing process. Being overweight not only puts strain on the heart, but the build-up of fatty deposits in the body’s organs and arteries can cause umpteen health issues. Not only will a person that is carrying too much weight risk health problems, which can be fatal, but also, they will find that the quality and enjoyment of life will deteriorate.

The Weight Loss Program entails a health check and direction towards treatment for any existing issue. A dietary plan will be drawn up to optimize weight loss, at a healthy rate which will, in itself, not be detrimental to the individual’s well-being. Rapid, excessive weight loss is not necessarily a good approach. 

The dietary plan will be combined with an active exercise plan. It is essential that weight loss and exercise go together in order to maximize the health benefits. Just as with the dietary plan, the program of exercise will be tailored to suit the individual and their lifestyle.

Ageing is an undeniable phenomenon of life, and Samitivej Srinakarin Hospital’s Well-Being Health Center in Bangkok offers the most comprehensive in-depth anti-ageing checkup program available. We all owe it to ourselves to be aware of, and address, our own ageing to safeguard our health and quality of life.
