Beyond Prevention: Closing the Lifespan–Healthspan Gap

Today Americans live longer lives, but unfortunately, many of those years are negatively impacted by chronic disease. Pharmaceutical medications and state-of-the-art medical technology are widely available, yet cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and chronic respiratory diseases account for 80% of all chronic disease-related deaths. Modern medicine focuses on “disease management,” with little money invested in early disease detection and virtually none in promoting or optimizing health. However, research shows our patterns of eating, moving, sleeping, oral health, state of the microbiome, exposure to environmental toxins, stress management strategies and quality of relationships impact our cellular health, metabolism and regenerative capacity, making them crucial to closing the gap between lifespan and healthspan.

Learning Objectives:
  • Define lifespan, life expectancy and healthspan.
  • Discuss the relationship between oral health, the gut microbiome, systemic inflammation and metabolic disorders.
  • Identify evidence-based lifestyle choices that can improve metabolism, cellular health and systemic inflammation.
