Skin Science – The New Key to Anti-Aging Medicine by Professor Adiel Tel-Oren, MD, DC, DABFM, DABCN, CCN, LN, presented on January 15, 2015.
What does the new science of skin health reveal about the secrets of longevity and disease prevention? How will simple, objective, non-invasive cutting-edge diagnostic tools revolutionize your overall health? What common practices must be avoided in order to maintain youthful skin, brain and body? Why do skin growths, cancers, rashes, and blemishes appear on your skin?
Because of its superficial position and aesthetic significance, humans care a lot about their skin and therefore have studied it extensively. However, lesser-known aspects of skin science have just recently come to light and are yet a novelty for amateurs and scientists alike. In this lecture Dr. Tel-Oren will introduce revolutionary scientific instruments that can diagnose skin health and demonstrate the progress of skin degeneration. Until now, these scientific instruments have only been available to major university research departments interested in general skin physiology, immunology, bacteriology, and pathology, but not in clinical applications. This is the first time that such skin diagnosis measures can be harnessed in a clinical or office setting to serve the needs of practitioners focused on anti-aging medicine.
The skin is not just the largest organ in the body, it is also a major organ of elimination, nutrient production, physical protection, and a major organ of the innate immune system second only in size and importance to the gastrointestinal tract. This innate immunity, as in other parts of the body, is the primordial initial line of defense against potential bacterial, viral, or environmental insult. Because of this function of the skin, and because of its structural components that lend protective lining and cushioning to our internal organs and neuro-musculo-skeletal structures, it is paramount that we identify trends affecting skin health and demonstrating its gradual degeneration process, as these trends directly affect the entire body’s immune resistance.
