A4M valued member Warren Willey, DO, ABAARM shares insight from his professional experience in this Member of the Month feature.
I started going to A4M conferences not long after residency. My core philosophy and practice style mirrors A4M and its members. I focus on the actual cause of disease (not just hiding it with a drug) and working toward a better quality of life for people.
Q2: What anti-aging techniques have you incorporated into your practice? And how did you so?
I teach all aspects of lowering stress and inflammation. This is done through diet and exercise optimization, hormone balance, controlling and modifying the body’s reaction to stress, and maintaining good cognitive/brain function no matter what the age.
Q3: What are the benefits of practicing anti-aging medicine: as a professional, and for your practice?
This type of practice gets people well. It treats the cause of discomfort, not just the symptom of discomfort and disease. It empowers people (patients and doctors) to improve their quality of life, and in doing so, getting a little side effect called life extension!
Q4: What are the changes you see in your patients?
So many to list, but they can all be summed up with better quality of life. More healthiness and more happiness!
Q5: Why would you recommend Anti-Aging Medicine to your peers?
I recommend it to all my peers so each of them can really make a difference in peoples lives. The whole reason most of us went into this profession. Get out of the rat race, the readmissions, the paperwork, and all the things that take the pleasure out of practicing medicine!
Q6: Where do you see the future of Anti-Aging medicine 20 years from now?
Current Anti-Aging medicine and its continued advancement IS the future of medicine. It’s the only future our society can afford, both monetarily and for patients care and peoples quality of life. What standard western medicine is doing now has not, is not, and will not work in the future. The system has to change, and this type of medicine will pave the way for it to do so.
