Australians heard about the emerging field of age reversal medicine during talks in Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney in February. Dr Curt Ficenec came to Australia to discuss scientific breakthroughs and the latest research published by prominent scientists in age reversal health care and anti-ageing. Dr Ficenec, an American chiropractor who has practised for more than 30 years, is also a wellness consultant who regularly lectures on the topic in America and internationally.
“We are standing on the edge of a revolution in healthcare. Things are changing rapidly due to advances in science and technology,” he says.
“Age reversal medicine is the fastest growing branch of health care. No-one wants to get older faster.” Dr Ficenec has spent his entire adult life helping people. “Based on what I’ve seen, most disease is man-made. By supporting the body’s own innate healing, we can make a huge difference,” he says.
Harvard studies reverse ageing
The research discussed on his Australian tour included a breakthrough by scientists from Harvard Medical School and the University of NSW.
Dr Ficenec said pharmaceutical companies had begun human trials of a therapy which could increase NAD levels, with phase two of this research underway. “They are trying to mimic the effect of the natural NAD+ compound using a pharmaceutical drug,” he says. “They are several years away from releasing a pharmaceutical version. Curt discussed how the research, fits and how it can change health. He also discussed a natural ingredient nicotinamide riboside, a form of vitamin B3, which functions as a precursor to NAD+.
