You can't avoid it, but you can slow it down! Dr. Hee-won Chung, a professor of geriatrics at Asan Medical Center in Seoul, warns that accelerated aging has arrived in Korea, and has published a book with four pillars and habits to normalize the pace of aging. According to Korean statistics, the health indicators of young adults, such as body mass index and alcohol consumption, have become noticeably worse over the past few years. In fact, there are now younger patients visiting doctors' offices, such as women in their 30s who have ailments here and there, men in their 40s who think they have dementia, and men in their 50s who have been bouncing from hospital to hospital because of unexplained weakness.
Geriatricians believe we should be working until age 77.
It is difficult to retire in your 60s, which is usually considered old age, economically and mentally. In response to these social needs, Prof. Hee-won Chung has built a 4M health method for sustainable aging based not only on her medical experience but also on clinical research, science, humanities, and economics. It centers on four important factors that determine healthy and successful aging: mobility, which restores physical function; mind health, which enhances cognitive resilience; health and disease, which corrects misconceptions about health; and what matters to me, which prevents social isolation. It doesn't require any special talent, and the results are dramatic, with improvements occurring within days and a life extension of at least 12 years. Given the current demographics and welfare system in Korea, health is the best wealth. Don't think it's too late. It's never too early.
