The 11th Annual A5M Conference in Anti-Ageing and Aesthetic Medicine will continue the theme of Personalised Medicine for Better Patient Outcomes with a focus in 2017 on Gut Health: The Cornerstone of Wellbeing. The 2017 conference program will feature a series of dynamic, innovate key opinion leaders who have played a significant role in shaping the direction of the industry and pioneering the anti-ageing and personalised medicine movement. Leading local and international experts in the areas of integrative, preventative, anti-ageing and aesthetic medicine will also be invited to speak.
Gut health has an enormous impact on all aspects of everyday life, including body, mind, work, family, how we look and ageing. The links between healthy lifestyle and healthy ageing, as well as internal and external health, are well established and increasingly researched in the scientific world. The conference this year will focus on the role of gut microbiota in health, disease and our physical appearance. With Australia’s ageing population progressively focused on feeling and looking better, it’s now more vital than ever that health professionals remain at the forefront of preventative, integrative and anti-ageing medicine.
Skin health and appearance medicine, including the latest research into theories of ageing such as methylation, glycation, inflammation, the role of detoxification and nutrition, are core considerations for all health practitioners concerned with the practice of healthy ageing. Health professionals understand that a healthy gut is viewed as a positive attribute, but it is changes and imbalances in gut microbiota that are associated with altered health states and can have an enormous impact human health.
Conference sessions will focus on this rapidly advancing field with extensive research on the microbiome and its relationship to genes, nutrition related disorders, obesity, metabolic syndrome, food intolerance, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and irritable bowel disease (IBS), the gut brain pathways, mental health and the most recent research into healthy ageing, lifestyle interventions for the management of chronic diseases, and patient-centred aesthetic medical care in clinical practice.
Attendees will be given cutting edge, practical and ready-to-implement strategies for improving patient outcomes and care standards through the practice of preventative, integrative and anti-ageing medicine.
