Anti-Aging is the study of slowing, halting, or reversing effects of aging. While angi-aging is a wide field of study, which technically includes the study of the achievement of forms of immortality, the treatments discussed on this page only purport to "cure" superficial signs of aging, such as changes in appearance and hormonal production. Please be aware of the fact that much research in the field of anti-aging is actually pseudoscience: quackery mixed with clever marketing posing as legitimate medicine.
After the medical community realized the dangers associated with hormone-based drugs derived from mare urine (including an increased risk of stroke, heart disease, and certain cancers in patients who took them), several pharmaceutical companies began producing drugs that more closely mimicked the hormones naturally found in the human body. The companies that produce these drugs, along with the healthcare professionals who prescribe them, claim that these plant-derived hormones do not carry the same risks as conventional hormone replacement medications. However, there is no actual scientific evidence that bio-identical hormone therapies are safe, and medical authorities, including the Food and Drug Administration, have raised serious questions concerning these claims.
"Prolotherapy", which is short for "proliferation therapy", is another questionable procedure in which an irritant (usually sugar water) is injected into the body for the purpose of somehow alleviating lower back pain. Proponents of the procedure claim that the injection of the irritant stimulates healing in ligaments and tendons. The vast majority of medical professionals reject this practice as pseudoscience, and there is no scientific studies have shown that prolotherapy injections do not produce results that differ from results obtained from control injections. Additionally, no major health insurance cover prolotherapy treatments, and the practice is rejected by Medicaire coverage.
