"The findings support its use for anxiety disorder, insomnia, memory retention, and stress, as well as physical complaints, such as osteoarthritis. Nevertheless, a wider range of health conditions warrants further study." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Results from a recent paper identified a number of variables associated with healthy aging. Those variables associated with healthy aging included high physical fitness levels. Additionally, it was demonstrated that many factors were common to healthy aging and healthy aging and may be related to biological mechanisms of healthy aging." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Healthy aging refers to the process of living life in good physical and mental health. Older adults frequently experience chronic disease conditions that affect HRQOL in their old age. However, HRQOL can be improved with a variety of strategies that help older adults to live on and thrive with fewer, but serious, chronic conditions. Healthy aging is a process that can positively affect HRQOL in later life." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The number of adults who meet the U.S. Healthy Aging goals is in the hundreds of thousands. This number is very close to the number who actually do meet all the Healthy Aging goals in 2015 alone. The overall decline in overall health as a result of the aging of the population, combined with advances in aging technologies and health care services, will continue to drive the overall health and wellness of American adults." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Age is the major risk factor for many chronic diseases. It is unknown why some diseases and disorders change with age or why people can keep them in remission over time. It is also unclear why there are so many diseases and disorders of which the cause is unknown. Aging is a major risk factor for many chronic diseases and associated disability. Healthy aging (e.g., normal, abnormal and reduced) may be maintained by balancing an array of biotic and abiotic signals that affect multiple mechanisms and structures required to maintain health." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"At least one treatment for healthy aging is common and is mostly recommended by health professionals as part of the treatment plan for an individual patient. Most commonly recommended services and treatment were for arthritis, physical fitness, and hypertension." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Healthy aging is an active, complex, dynamic, and multi-organ process. Healthy aging is not a disease, therefore it does not need cure or treatment. Therefore, the concept of “curing aging” is an exaggeration. What does need treatment or cure, can, however, be done by many physicians, patients, healthcare providers, and research scientists alike, to improve the overall well-being of an individual who suffers from chronic illness." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Side effects of tele-tai chi may be categorized according to the TCM syndromes, and the side effects of TCM therapies may be partially compensated by the pharmacological effects of its components and natural herbs." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"This preliminary study provided the first evidence that tele-tai chi may have the potential to induce measurable benefits in the rehabilitation of frailty and to enhance a range of key functions in older frail individuals. Whether these benefits could translate into a meaningful, and sustained, effect on the functional status of everyday activities of daily living remains unknown, but warrants further investigation with larger groups and over longer follow-up." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Findings from a recent study illustrate the utility of family history research in identifying new pathways for understanding familial predisposition to age-related diseases. With additional linkage analysis, we should soon be able to establish a number of candidate loci for common familial forms of aging." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"The advantages and disadvantages for tele-Tai Chi exercise training in terms of quality/cost/effectiveness have not yet been analyzed. Thus, while there is presently insufficient information on clinical and cost-effectiveness, tele-Tai Chi in this regard seems to be a relevant option for all ages, for women at all stages of life, and possibly in settings in which it could potentially be implemented." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"When a self-efficacy perspective is introduced, the intervention is no better than a placebo. Nevertheless, the effect of TC on physiological function warrants further study." - Anonymous Online Contributor
