Update from the 19th Annual World Congress on Anti-Aging and Aesthetic Medicine

Here is an update from the 19th Annual World Conference on Anti Aging and Aesthetic Medicine in Orlando. There is deservedly a lot of talk about two emerging trends..stem cell applications and hormone therapy and conditions.  There is no question that stem cells are the future of medicine and will provide tremendous benefit in out lifetimes.  Stem cells currently have over 220 applications in the human genome and additional applications in the veterinary world. Science is evolving rapidly and new treatments are already being offered and many more in the not to distant future.

We are also learning more and more about the endocrine system and the inter-relationship of hormones.  We are also learning more about the problems that hormonal imbalance can cause. This is a complicated field and there is a lot more to learn.

The challenge for medical providers will be to separate false claims from reality in these two fields.  I have heard some supportable claims at the conference as well as other claims that are....for lack of a better term....NOT supportable by the science!!!
