Online, January 16, 2010 (Newswire.com) - Spokane, Washington-Debbie J. Judd, RN has been awarded Diplomat status after completing a two-year Fellowship program in the Clinical Sciences of Anti-aging, Regenerative, and Functional medicine. The Fellowship program is offered through the American Academy of Anti-aging Medicine organization.
"Anti-aging medicine is a clinical/medical specialty and field of scientific research aimed at the early detection, prevention, treatment, and reversal of age-related decline. It is well documented by peer-reviewed medical and scientific journals and employs evidence-based methodologies to conduct patient assessments. The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine was established in 1997 as a professional physician certification and review board, which offers physician recognition in the form of specialty-based examination in Anti-Aging Medicine. It represents 12,500 physicians, scientists, health professionals, and the health minded public from 73 countries worldwide."1
The health status of the American population is declining rapidly. With obesity, Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer on the rise, there needs to be a new focus and approach on the treatment of these chronic illnesses and their related problems.
Functional and Regenerative medicine are the new health care paradigm. Patient's "life stories" are evaluated for underlying causes of disease; lifestyle interventions are utilized to alleviate the many symptoms related to these chronic diseases.
Debbie Judd is co-owner, with her husband Dr. Michael Judd, of The Metabolic Institute. The Metabolic Institute has been in business for four years and focuses on evidence-based medicine using a Functional Medicine approach in treating chronic illness. In addition to working at The Institute, Debbie is currently a student at Gonzaga University pursuing studies towards her Family Nurse Practitioner degree.
