Sarcopenia is a progressive medical condition characterized by the gradual loss of muscle mass, strength, and function, typically associated with aging. It results from a complex interplay of factors, including changes in hormonal levels, reduced physical activity, poor nutrition, and altered muscle metabolism. Sarcopenia can lead to decreased mobility, increased frailty, and a higher risk of falls and fractures, thereby negatively impacting an individual’s overall quality of life. Early diagnosis and intervention, such as resistance exercise and proper nutrition, are crucial in managing and potentially reversing the effects of sarcopenia, helping individuals maintain muscle mass and function as they age.

Live a Wholesome Life with Integrative Medicine

Integrative medicine is an approach to healthcare that combines conventional Western medicine with complementary and alternative therapies. It emphasizes a holistic view of health, focusing on the interconnectedness of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. Integrative medicine seeks to provide personalized and comprehensive care, incorporating evidence-based treatments alongside practices such as acupuncture, nutrition counselling, mindfulness, and other complementary therapies to promote healing and overall wellness.
