Anti-Aging Q&A

What is anti-aging medicine?

Although the risk of disease and disability clearly increases with advanced age, poor health does not have to be an inevitable consequence of aging. Many of the illnesses, disabilities, and deaths associated with chronic diseases are avoidable through preventive measures. Key measures include practicing a healthy lifestyle such as including regular physical activity, healthy eating, adequate sleep, and stress management. Along with the use of early-detection practices like screening for cancers, diabetes, and depression. Dr. Bebe Chianni Lin’s focus on anti-aging is aimed at improving the health, quality of life, and vitality of her patients, and helping to prevent illness.

How is Integrative Oriental Medicine Preventative Medicine?

It is very important to understand that a Traditional Chinese doctor's primary goal was to prevent disease. Many physicians were actually punished for allowing patients to become sick. These historical influences reinforce why Oriental Medicine puts so much into developing its complex and effective understanding of the root causes of disease and prevention vs. just treating symptoms. Dr. Chianni Lin is a member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine whose mission is the advancement of technology to prevent and treat aging related disease and to promote research to optimize the aging process. One of her areas of anti-aging expertise is Facial Rejuvenation and Cosmetic Acupuncture which is a natural and non-invasive approach to skin care and overall health. Dr. Lin has been using anti-aging techniques on herself for the last 2 decades with great results and is regarded as a leading anti-aging specialist in Los Angeles.

How does anti-aging preventative medicine differ from traditional medical practices?

Conventional medicine focuses more on treating the symptoms associated with acute or chronic illness and trauma. Integrative Medicine works to diagnose these conditions at a much earlier stage and to reverse them, by treating the entire body, not just the symptoms. Dr. Chianni Lin offers each patient a specific and customized approach to health, beauty, and wellbeing.
