Today’s Medical Advancements Treat the Aging Brain, Offering Active, Independent and Redefining Retirement Era
From Beth Davis of Finn Partners
SUMTER COUNTY, Fla. – Despite U.S. Baby Boomers having the longest life expectancy in history, their brains are aging at a faster rate than previous generations, according to a recent Ohio State University nationwide study. For Boomers, the first generation to show cognition regression, research indicates that wealth and education have no equitable bearings on brain function. Currently ranging from ages 62 to 72 (born 1948-1959) and primed for a lengthy and enriching retirement, the feared complexities of living an increasingly longer life – but with a quickly declining brain – is evitable for those able and willing to invest in advanced treatments, such as the Aviv Medical Program.
Progress abounds and none too soon. Bioscience researchers are developing promising medical treatment options to give people longer lasting cognitive function enabling optimum health later in life. Just last month (February 2021) a Bloomberg Moonshot episode, the network’s global news streaming program, dedicated an entire episode to medical advancements that are already in practice and scientifically-proven to treat the aging process – ultimately, circumventing age-related diseases – as explained by leading researchers from Harvard Medical School and Aviv Scientific.
Of those discussed, the Aviv Medical Program, a proprietary protocol concentrated in hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), is attracting affluent, active Boomers from all over the world. A landmark 2020 study, published in the peer-review journal Aging, indicate changes among healthy adults ages 64 or older who completed the three-month program, to be the equivalent to how participant bodies were at the cellular level 25 years earlier. This proven treatment is readily available and presents opportunity to improve and restore cognitive function such as memory, attention, speed of information processing and more.
“Until now, biologically preserving and restoring healthy brain function was unavailable. Today, there’s finally an individualized brain health program that actually assesses and changes the physiology of the brain,” said Mohammed Elamir, M.D., board-certified physician at Aviv Clinics. “This will enable people to take control of the trajectory of their health span. Protecting your independence, mobility, vitality and personality can be by choice – not by chance.”
For Boomers embarking on the third age – ready to redefine retirement with energy, mobility, independence and healthy brain performance, the Aviv Medical Program is a substantial investment cost in improving quality of life today and maintaining it for years to come. Outside of Israel, the treatment is only available at the Aviv Clinics medical center located in Central Florida.
Aging Nations Ahead
Spawning the longevity movement are societal concerns associated with a population in which older people outnumber the young – a historical first, projected for 2025 in the U.S., when seniors (65 million) will surpass children age 13 and under (58 million). Recognizing global impacts of an aging population, the United Nations General Assembly has declared 2021-2030 the Decade of Healthy Ageing, an initiative dedicated to improving the lives of older people, their families and the communities in which they live.
