Dr Deepak Chopra, heralded by Time as one of the 100 heroes and icons of the century speaks at Anti-Ageing London

London: Dr Deepak Chopra MD, founder of The Chopra Center for Wellbeing in California, is acknowledged as one of the world’s greatest leaders in the field of mind body medicine.

Dr Chopra, the author of over 43 books, has transformed the understanding of the meaning of health, through his creation of The Chopra Center in 1995, which established a formal vehicle for the expansion of his healing approach using the integration of the best of western medicine with natural healing traditions.

Chopra’s work is changing the way the world views physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social wellness. Formerly the Chief of Staff at Boston Regional Medical Center, Dr Chopra built a successful endocrinology practice in Boston in the 1980’s. Chopra realised in his medical practice that there was potential in western medicine for the establishment of a new life-giving paradigm, one which encompassed the fundamental principle that perfect health is more than just the absence of disease.

He began to envisage a medical system based upon the premise that health is a lively state of balance and integration of body, mind and spirit. He is widely credited with melding modern theories of quantum physics with the timeless wisdom of ancient cultures. In 1992, he served on the National Institutes of Health Ad Hoc Panel on Alternative Medicine.

Dr Chopra will be speaking at Anti-Ageing Conference London 2006 (AACL) on Sunday, 17 September, which this year has attracted the largest gathering of the world’s pre-eminent medical speakers on anti-ageing health and regenerative medicine ever to be assembled in London.

The growing interest in anti-ageing medicine means that this event has also generated more interest this year from both exhibitors and sponsors around the world. They include the UK’s most advanced anti-ageing clinic, HB Health; Anti-Ageing Systems, suppliers of innovative anti-ageing products; Promedis, a subdiary of Canada’s largest health products manufacturer, Jamieson; the largest anti-ageing member association, the World Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine; Receptura Pharmaproduktion GmbH; pharmaceutical supplier Wigmore Medical; online health products supplier, The Really Healthy Company; Bioform Medical Inc, manufacturers of Radiesse; Bio-Resonance and www.elixirnews.com, an independent news source on anti-ageing health.

According to Euromonitor International, the global market for products for age-related conditions is valued at more than $6.9 billion and is one of the fastest growing consumer sectors. This is why Anti-Ageing Conference London is of interest to both medical professionals and private individuals.

The 3rd AACL, which is being held at the Royal Society of Medicine in London from the 15-17 September 2006 is the only forum in the UK where both professionals and lay persons can learn about the latest advances in medicine and science.

Heather Bird-Tchenguiz, the founder of lead sponsor HB Health and chairperson of AACL says: “In most societies around the globe people are living longer so the importance of healthy ageing has never been greater so AACL is a unique forum for anyone interested in these important medical issues. It also offers the opportunity for businesses in this field to promote themselves and their products to a targeted global audience.”

At AACL delegates will hear from scientists and physicians on the latest medical advances, including what some may consider controversial, to the proven and new treatments for the diseases of ageing, as well as cosmetic and dental health, optimum nutrition, skin health, hormones, mind/body health and the latest developments in stem cell treatments.

Among our international panel of speakers are Dr Jennifer Krup MD ABAAM, a hormone specialist who is HB Health’s medical advisor; Dentist Brian Halvorsen BDS. LDS. RCS. FRSH, renowned for his work on toxicity problems in dentistry and holistic dental care; nutritionist and author Patrick Holford, who has examined the role diet plays in ageing; and Dr Bill Cham PhD, whose research into the use of plant extracts in skin cancer remission has produced new treatments for this disease.

Other speakers who have driven the global debate on anti-ageing medicine include Dr Robert Goldman, Chairman, American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and Dr Ronald Klatz, Founding President, American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine; Professor Imre Zs-Nagy, Professor John Ionescu and Dr Michael Klentze.

Delegates receive the following:
• A high-quality bound conference manual including speaker presentations and biographical materials
• Buffet lunch on all three days
• Refreshments including cocktail reception
• The opportunity to see the latest anti-ageing products in the exhibition area
