Can you tell us about Modern Age's core philosophy and how it drives your strategies for promoting wellness and longevity?

At Modern Age, we fundamentally believe that health should be perceived with a positive valence. This means viewing health not merely as the absence of disease but as an individual's ability to function at their desired level and achieve their life's aspirations. Unfortunately, the conventional medical system often waits for problems to arise before intervening. We aim to shift this paradigm by encouraging a proactive approach to health, viewing it as a vehicle to fulfilling personal goals. Our approach begins with understanding what our clients seek to achieve—be it enhancing physical performance, improving cognitive function, or simply enjoying a more vibrant life. This understanding then guides the personalized plans we create, incorporating lifestyle interventions, supplements, and, when appropriate, prescription therapies to help our clients reach their objectives while considering their unique constraints.

How do you stay on top of the latest developments in biomedical science, and what is your process for translating these advancements into practical frameworks for patient care?

To navigate the vast landscape of biomedical science and its latest developments, we rely on a carefully crafted framework centered around cellular function and the biology of aging. This model is crucial for discerning valuable information amidst the noise, allowing us to assimilate new research, technologies, supplements, and drugs effectively into how we think about things for ourselves and our patients. By continuously refining our understanding of cellular health and longevity, we ensure our strategies are grounded in a solid scientific foundation, setting us apart from most in the space, whom I would argue do not have such an approach.

Can you discuss the importance of cross-disciplinary collaboration in advancing healthcare innovation? How have you fostered such collaboration in your roles?

The intersection of technology and healthcare, especially in the realm of longevity, is a fertile ground for innovation. Recognizing this, we have fostered strong partnerships between our clinical teams and digital product teams to harness tools like artificial intelligence judiciously. These collaborations enable us to design and utilize technologies that enhance our care delivery, ensuring our patients benefit from the most advanced and effective interventions available.

How do you define longevity medicine, and what distinguishes it from conventional medical practices?

Longevity medicine diverges from conventional medical practices by focusing on health as an asset rather than merely the absence of disease. This discipline emphasizes optimizing cellular function, employing advanced diagnostics, and leveraging a wide array of interventions to understand and improve body function. Second Personalization stands at the forefront of longevity medicine, moving beyond the one-size-fits-all “evidenced based” approach of conventional medicine to offer tailored solutions that consider the full spectrum of scientific evidence and patient preferences.

How can principles of longevity medicine be better integrated into the broader healthcare system to address the rise of chronic illnesses and early aging?

Longevity medicine represents what primary care should embody. The key to broader integration lies in elevating awareness and demonstrating the solid scientific foundation underpinning this approach. Moving away from reliance solely on large-scale randomized controlled trials, longevity medicine employs a hypothesis-driven scientific approach that balances risks and benefits. As understanding and acceptance of this model grows, we anticipate a gradual but definitive shift towards its adoption in mainstream healthcare.

At Modern Age, our starting point for most people is the Aging Wellness Assessment, which provides a holistic understanding of our patients physical, mental, and biological health. The assessment examines over 55 biomarkers associated with metabolism, energy, inflammation, cognition and helps patients connect the dots to create a proactive healthcare plan.

You’ve been a big proponent of personalized patient care. How do you utilize technology and innovative solutions to customize memory interventions for individual patient needs and align them with their specific health goals?

Personalization is critical, especially when addressing memory, a concern for many due to its impact on performance and cognitive function across ages. Our Aging Wellness Assessment serves as a foundational tool, evaluating various biomarkers linked to brain health. This comprehensive analysis allows us to identify the most effective interventions, whether they involve enhancing metabolic or hormonal functions or employing targeted therapies like neurofeedback. By understanding the specific needs and goals of each individual, we can tailor interventions that not only address memory concerns but also align with broader health objectives.

These responses embody our commitment to advancing health and longevity through a personalized, proactive, and scientifically grounded approach.
