FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Aug. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Life Extension has just-released the fifth edition of its Disease Prevention and Treatment book, a medical reference guide providing over 1,400 pages of scientific information on protocols that may prevent and treat diseases of aging.

The Disease Prevention and Treatment book includes 130 evidence-based protocols to combat the diseases of aging and reveals information about effective therapies that are not being used routinely in the clinical setting. It is based on thousands of scientific articles and clinical experience of physicians worldwide. This information is not found anywhere else and is published by an organization passionate about keeping people younger and healthier longer. Suggested retail price is $69.95.

The book is based on over three decades of interaction by Life Extension with scientific pioneers who have developed novel solutions for preventing and treating degenerative disease. Their methods are based on reviewing thousands of published scientific papers, interacting with innovative doctors throughout the world and drawing on their own professional experience.

"Our healthcare system is a disease model, not a prevention model, and reimbursement is based upon sickness, not wellness. We need to better integrate all facets of care," says Dr. Steven V. Joyal, chief medical officer with Life Extension, and who, along with his team were involved with revising and updating the fifth edition.

It's this thinking that spurred the creation of Life Extension's 2014 edition of the Disease Prevention and Treatment book, which seeks to fill those gaps. From cancer to multiple sclerosis, the book offers information on integrating pharmaceutical treatment options, nutritional support and lifestyle changes for optimal health.  

High Blood Pressure

A major risk factor for heart disease, stroke, congestive heart failure and kidney disease, high blood pressure threatens the life of every third American adult.

Intensive lifestyle changes can ease blood pressure management. When this isn't enough, pharmaceutical options can help. For example, blood pressure is best controlled with lower doses of multiple antihypertensive medications rather than a single large dose of medication. Furthermore, side effects can be greatly reduced.

"Many patients are lulled into a false sense of security by normal blood pressure readings at their periodic doctor's visits. But quite frequently, patients experience gaps in control, putting them at risk for stroke and heart attack," says Joyal who recommends considering the following:

  • With an inexpensive at-home blood pressure monitor, take readings at multiple times throughout the day, tracking values over time. Your doctor can determine whether to modify your treatment regimen based upon the results.
  • Stay fit and exercise. A healthy body weight and high degree of cardiorespiratory fitness reduce hypertension risk, and if you already have high blood pressure, can help you achieve better control.
  • Hold the salt. High sodium intake can make high blood pressure worse. Read labels. Even if you aren't reaching for salt, many pre-packaged convenience foods, meats and cheeses contain significant amounts of sodium.
  • Get plenty of beneficial nutrients, especially potassium and magnesium, which are important for vascular health.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis could pose more than just a risk to comfort. Systemic inflammation hastens the onset of other age-related diseases, including cardiovascular disease.

"For optimal longevity, we need to integrate lifestyle changes with pharmaceutical treatments, rather than blindly assume that all a patient needs is more medication," says Joyal.

In addition to doctor-prescribed treatments, Life Extension researchers have scoured medical literature, finding several nutrients help support health in rheumatoid arthritis patients. Those nutrients include fish oil, krill oil blend, gamma linolenic acid vitamin D, vitamin B6, green tea extract, quercetin and folate.

Life Extension based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is an organization dedicated to finding new scientific methods to enhance and expand the healthy human life span. For over 33 years, the Life Extension Foundation has been a pioneer in funding and reporting the latest anti-aging research and integrative health therapies while offering superior-quality dietary supplements to consumers.

Life Extension is committed to informing people about medical breakthroughs and vital health news so they can make wiser health choices. Life Extension has funded research programs aimed at developing new anti-aging therapies and combating such age-related killers as heart disease, stroke, cancer, and Alzheimer's and has granted over $100 million to research on anti-aging therapeutics and disease prevention.
